Derrick Favors is quietly having a tremendous season in Utah, averaging 17.2 points a night on 54 percent shooting, plus grabbing 8.9 boards a game. He has matured into one of the better big men in the NBA.
You don’t need to tell Oklahoma City’s Andre Roberson that, he saw it first hand.
Favors set the pick for Trey Burke then rolled down the lane, got the pass and went straight to the rim for the dunk. Everyone was late, but Roberson was under the basket and got the worst of it.
OKC went on to win a tight game 94-90 behind 24 points from Russell Westbrook.
