In the midst of all the hype surrounding the debut of No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson on Wednesday, his New Orleans Pelicans teammate Derrick Favors is carving out his own piece of history.

The 10-year pro is on a hot streak of hitting his last 21 field goal attempts, per Andrew Lopez of ESPN The streak started for Favors against the Utah Jazz on Thursday when the 6-foot-9 big man finished the game with 21 points and 11 rebounds on 10-12 shooting.

Favors then when on to shoot a perfect 10-10 in the Pelicans' next game against the Los Angeles Clippers, ending the game with 22 points and 11 rebounds.

A back injury would keep Favors out of the lineup in the Pelicans' next game, but the veteran power forward was announced to be good to go in the team's Wednesday night matchup

As of writing, Favors streak has ended as he has shot 3-4 midway through the second quarter against the San Antonio Spurs.

Prior to Favors, current Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan held the record with 20 straight field goal makes when he played for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2013.

Especially without Williamson, Favors has stepped up for the Pelicans this season. The 28-year-old big man is averaging 9.8 points and a career-high 10.1 rebounds per game while shooting a career-best 62.2 percent from the field.

It's possible that as Zion Williamson gets back to full strength, Derrick Favors will see his role slightly diminished. However, with Williamson's lack of height, it's likely that the Pelicans will experiment with multiple different rotations — – including some that would include the two playing at the same time as small-ball big men.
