Derrick Favors is a big part of the Utah Jazz’s a high flying future.
Tiago Splitter is rolling to the right side of the rim, wide open — but only for a moment — because here comes Jazz big man Derrick Favors flying across the court.
The ball moves, but so does Favors. In an instant later, he is all the way on the left side of the key, where Gary Neal starts to turn the corner off a pick-and-roll. Favors glides into position, his quick feet wide and balanced, his long arms waving to obscure Neal’s vision and deter any thought of driving.
