Thaddeus Young posted a double-double in a blowout win against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night. His 12 points and 11 rebounds gave him his second double-double in five games.

Shumpert will look to make his Houston Rockets debut on Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder or on Monday against the Dallas Mavericks.

In addition to Favor’s 14 points he added 3 rebounds in a comfortable win for the Jazz against the Phoenix Suns. Favors’ s recent play has helped the Jazz to reach seven wins in the past 10 games, keeping pace in the Western Conference. The Jazz currently sit at 7th place. The Jazz are in action next against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday evening at 5p.m.
