BREAKDOWN—Favors positively impacting the Jazz, both offensively and defensively

The Jazz starting lineup of Burke, Hayward, Jefferson, Marvin and Favors has played 526 minutes together. In those 526 minutes, the Jazz offensive rating is 107.2 and defensive rating is 106.4—a positive .8, which is very impressive for a team that is 20 games below .500.

If you take Favors out of the lineup and put in Kanter with the same other four, the offense drops to 103.1 and the defense drops to 113.9—for a -10.8 in 141 minutes.

Despite Derrick’s small offensive numbers, the numbers show he is impacting the Jazz positively in on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor.
