    - Derrick Favors took advantage of his opportunity when the game was on the line.

    "Most coaches will tell you need to just play your game and don't try to do anything you can't do. But when it got down to crunch time, I told myself, 'I'm going to try and win this game,' " Favors said.

    The 20-year-old power forward has rarely been on the court when a game is tight at the finish, but he made the most of his opportunity Saturday night.

    Starting for Al Jefferson, Favors had career highs with 23 points and 17 rebounds to help the Utah Jazz edge the Golden State Warriors 99-92 in overtime.
