Favors Throws Down Huge Dunk As Jazz Make Big Run
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors has been playing in the NBA for nine seasons.
He’s dunked the ball plenty of times. 813 times, to be exact.
However, against the Milwaukee Bucks the big man had probably the biggest posterization of his career on his 813th career dunk.
With the Jazz roaring back from a 14-point deficit , Favors put the punctuation on his team’s strong play with a violent slam over Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova.
Not only was Ilyasova on the business end of the huge dunk, but insult was added to injury when a foul was called on the play, sending Favors to the line for an and-one opportunity.
The free throw was missed but the crowd at Vivint Smart Home Arena remained buzzing after the big play.
The play was a major part of a huge run by the Jazz, who trailed 20-6 in the first quarter. Favors’ dunk was the latest score in what was 30-11 run by Utah to take a 5-point lead midway through the second quarter.
