watching the Lakers game last night I was frustrated that Favors and Kanter only played a combined 20 minutes … more specifically, that they came at the very end of the 3rd quarter and played awesome, and then were both pulled two minutes into the fourth. I think it was the difference in the game. By the end of the 4th, Jefferson and Millsap were tired.
Kanter was the best Jazz big man last night in his very limited time against Bynum …he shut him down on three low post shots, without fouling, and his putback dunk was nice. Favors too, this was more frustrating than the Kanter situation …12 minutes? He finished with 4 points and 5 rebounds.
As the season rolls on, the Jazz strength will be frontcourt depth and size, we have to use it when it matters. It seems like Kanter and Favors minutes are viewed as development time … they should be viewed as better D and rebounding than Al minutes.
