Derrick Favors shines in win over Mavericks

The return of Derrick Favors was big.

NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Utah Jazz Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

What a difference Derrick Favors makes!? With a line of 19 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists, Favors was a huge part of helping the Utah Jazz beat the Dallas Mavericks. His presence provides incredible defense on the weak side and his offense punishes 2nd units. The Jazz are simply better with Derrick Favors on the team.

Ricky Rubio was fantastic tonight. His shooting has become a weapon that, combined with his passing, will be huge in the playoffs.

Donovan Mitchell continues to solidify his case for rookie of the year. Even with his three point shot not falling as much lately, he still finds a way to score and get the Jazz a bucket when they need it, especially late in games.

Joe Ingles continues his greatness. Tonight it was a near triple double of 18 points, 10 assists and 6 rebounds. He’s an incredible option of versatility at the wing and continues to be a big part of the Jazz playoff push.
