Can Jazz low-post big men Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter play together and be effective?
Going forward, that question is one of the most important Utah management must answer in their quest to move beyond this season’s 25-57 record.
One word of caution: Don’t count Kanter as one of the doubters.
"I think it’s crazy that people think we cannot play together," he said Thursday afternoon at EnergySolutions Arena. "I read all these articles and it’s crazy some people think we can’t play together. …
"This is my third year with him. I feel so much more comfortable with him on the court. Offensively, defensively, both sides of the court. I know what he’s going to do and he knows what I’m going to do."
Statistically, Kanter enjoyed a breakout season in 2013-14.
He averaged 12.3 points and 7.5 rebounds. He played a total of 2,138 minutes, or nearly 200 more than he did in his first two seasons combined.
