Derrick Favors 24 Points Full Highlights (11/11/2017)

Not only is Derrick Favors’ 24 points in this game a season-high, it’s also a higher single-game total than he scored at any point in 2016-17 season. With that fact taken into account, it is fair to call this performance a VINTAGE D-FAVES performance. We haven’t seen him look this unstoppable down low since two…

Derrick Favors 20 Points Full Highlights (2/6/2017)

This is Derrick Favor’s best scoring game of the season. That injury must have really screwed him up, because he averaged 16 the last two years, and now double figures is a good game for him. Combine his general ineffectiveness with the Jazz’s surprisingly good record, and Favors has become the forgotten man in Utah….

Derrick Favors 28 Points Full Highlights (3/13/2016)

This keeps happening with high picks who take a while to develop: by the time they’ve developed into the fully-formed fringe All-Star caliber player that they will remain for the rest of their career, people have moved on and no longer care. The modern NBA fan is lusting constantly for superstars to emerge from the…

Derrick Favors 28 Points/6 Blocks Full Highlights (3/5/2016)

The Utah Jazz: a core-having team? Let’s just get it out of the way now. YES. The Utah Jazz are a basketball team, and they have a core group of players to build around. Tibor Pleiss may or may not be part of that core. Forget about Tibor, though. He doesn’t matter right now. These…

Derrick Favors 25 Points Full Highlights (2/25/2016)

When I was watching this game I was able to witness Derrick Favors being guarded by LaMarcus Aldridge and vice-versa. That got me thinking: is Derrick Favors not the second coming of LaMarcus Aldridge? Derrick takes a lot more of his shots close to the basket, but he has shown a jumper game that is,…

Lately DownToBuck has been trying to expand his emerging “Flavors of Favors” brand. Cookbooks must be a low-growth sector or something because I made all these Flavors of Favors cookbooks and guess what, they’re all sitting around in piles in my bedroom. The same marketing that has gotten me 28,000 subscribers apparently can’t even sell…

Derrick Favors Career High 35 Points Full Highlights (12/5/2015)

Derrick Favors drove along a barely-used desert road. It had been almost an hour since he had seen any sign of civilization, here in the barren Utah flatlands. The only lights he had seen were his rental car’s headlights, illuminating the night when he dared to use them. He was totally lost now, and he…

Derrick Favors 23 Points Full Highlights (11/30/2015)

Oh, wow. Tough loss, Jazz fans. Really thought you might be able to pull that one out. Will make a great section for the Warriors’ championship DVD, at least. In light of this tragic defeat, it is time to partition blame! Yes, that will make us feel better. Let me get my sceptre of blame-partitioning….

Derrick Favors 25 Points/7 Blocks Full Highlights (11/12/2015)

I’m thinking you guys must just take all your meals at fast-food establishments, or maybe your mom still cooks for you, because these frickin’ cookbooks are not frickin’ moving. I should have known better than to market a “Flavors of Favors” cookbook to a bunch of neckbearded NBA fans who have never cooked a meal…

Derrick Favors 26 Points Full Highlights (10/28/2015)

It’s comforting to know that, as much as things change in the NBA, some things will always stay the same. That there are certain immutable facts of the NBA that will never falter in their trueness. Like the Jazz commentators using the word “confidence” whenever Derrick Favors hits a jumper. They were doing it two…
