Jazz's Derrick Favors: Solid effort Saturday
Favors tallied 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-6 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 23 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 victory over Boston.
Favors continues to see limited playing time despite the starting role, having now played less than 30 minutes in every game this season. His production remains solid even in reduced minutes, providing a nice source of points, rebounds, and defensive stats. His ceiling is certainly limited but he does provide consistent numbers and you could do worse if you need a low-end big man.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Ricky Rubio: Scores 20 points in victory
Rubio produced 20 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 28 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 victory over the Celtics.
Rubio had just his third 20 point game of the season Saturday but also tied his season-low with two assists. Rubio's scoring has been inconsistent, as is normally the case, but he has managed to lift his assist numbers from last season. He has also recorded multiple steals in six games, providing him with some nice overall value.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Impactful in victory Saturday
Gobert had 12 points (4-5 FG, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 victory over Boston.
Gobert managed just nine rebounds Saturday, his fist singe-digit board game of the season. Despite the limited production, Gobert had a huge impact on the game from a reality point of view, on what was arguably the Jazz' best defensive effort of the season. Gobert appears locked in as a nightly double-double threat with huge upside in defensive numbers. He should be better than this and will look to improve against the Pacers on Monday.... See More ...

Jazz's Donovan Mitchell: Leads all scorers with 28 points
Mitchell finished with 28 points (10-21 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, three rebounds, three steals, and one block in 35 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 victory over the Celtics.
Mitchell connected on a season-high five triples Saturday, helping the Jazz to an impressive victory over the Celtics. The Jazz appeared much more focused, especially on the defensive end. After a couple of duds, Mitchell has bounced back with consecutive 30 point games. On the whole, both Mitchell and the Jazz have started the season on an indifferent note. Perhaps this victory will be what is needed to kick them back into gear.... See More ... See Less

Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Grabs six boards in Friday's loss
Sefolosha had two points (1-1 FG), six rebounds, and one assist in 11 minutes during Friday's 113-107 loss to the 76ers.
Sefolosha has combined to play 23 minutes over the last two games, this after appearing in only two tilts prior this season (for a combined nine minutes). The 34-year-old veteran is best known for what he brings on the defensive end, and it's unlikely that he'll carve out enough of a role to hold value in most leagues.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Donovan Mitchell: Scores 31 points on 35 shots
Mitchell managed 31 points (13-35 FG, 1-11 3Pt, 4-7 FT), four steals, two rebounds, and one block in 34 minutes during Friday's 113-107 loss to the 76ers.
Mitchell wasn't shy in this one, nor was he efficient. However, he did contribute plenty of counting stats while nearly leading his team to an impressive comeback victory. Mitchell will likely continue to remain aggressive despite his recent struggles, as the Jazz simply don't have much offensive firepower outside of him.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Raul Neto: Nearing return to court
