Video: Jazz big man Derrick Favors has the worst inbounds of the season

Utah Jazz center Derrick Favors provided us a moment to remember Thursday night in their game against the Houston Rockets.

Unfortunately, it was a funny one as he seemingly had grease in his mits. The ball slipped off Favors’ hands and hit the backboard while he tried to inbound the ball from the baseline following a three-pointer from Gerald Green.

It resulted in a surefire Shaqtin’ A Fool material.

However, this play did not end up being costly for the Jazz. They went on to torch the Houston Rockets, 118-91, to record their 13th win this season.

Ironically, it was Derrick Favors who served as the Jazz’s main man in the game. He stepped up for starting big man Rudy Gobert’s abrupt exit and produced his best performance this season so far.

Favors finished with 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the floor and 10 rebounds to record an outstanding double-double.

Derrick Favors was originally drafted by the New Jersey Nets in 2010 who then shipped him to the Jazz in 2011. Favors have been a mainstay with the team ever since. Currently, he’s one of the longest-tenured players on their roster.

This season he is averaging 10.9 points per game on 60.4 percent shooting. He also contributes in the rebounds department with an average of 7.1 per game.

With the win, the Jazz improved to 11th in the Western Conference standings with a 13-13 record.
