Utah Jazz fan has some, um, Favors to ask Coach Corbin

Jazz fan Mason Nichols is outside EnergySolutions Arena offering some free advice to coach Tyrone Corbin from the corner of 300 West and South Temple.

Nichols came to the arena to give this pro-Favors demonstration despite not having tickets to Game 3 tonight between the Jazz and Spurs.

“I’m too poor,” Nichols said.

Favors only played an average of 23.5 minutes for the Jazz in the blowout losses at the AT&T Center this past Sunday and Wednesday. Favors has a plus-six while he’s on the court while the Jazz were minus-51 with him on the bench. Favors is fourth in the team in playoff scoring at 8.0 points per game, but he leads the Jazz in rebounding with 8.5 boards per contest.

So, fans, is Mr. Nichols correct? More Favors? Or has Corbin played him the right amount?
