Favors finished with 10 points and 14 rebounds in 25 minutes. Kanter, who is coming off shoulder surgery, had 10 points and four rebounds in 20 minutes in his first game since April.
"I feel better," Kanter said. "My shoulder feels better. … "I’m not scared of any contact or anything. I don’t feel any pain. I’m still a little rusty, but I’ve been working on it with my coaches and my teammates, so it’s going to get there."
Corbin liked the way Favors and Kanter played together — something that will be critical to the Jazz’s development this season.
"It’s one thing we talked about the last two years," Corbin said. "We wanted those guys to get [comfortable] being on the floor together, and that time is now.
"They will continue their growth ... as go-to guys. We will go to them more. They play off each other very well. They’ve learned to read each other and that will continue."
