Derrick Favors' Game-Winning Dunk Lifted Jazz Over Lakers In Final Seconds (VIDEO)

The ball was in the air and the game was on the line. Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors grabbed hold of both and delivered his team's ninth win of the season.

With the Jazz and Lakers even 103-103 in the final seconds in Utah on Friday night, Favors' putback dunk sealed a win. Following a Jazz timeout, Gordon Hayward dribbled the seconds down on the wing before attacking the basket. His running, layup attempt came off the rim. Enter Favors. The 22-year-old rose above the crowd in the paint, grabbed hold of the rebound with two hands and slammed home the game-winning dunk with 2.1 seconds remaining.

"My first game-winner ever," Favors said after the 105-103 win, via The Associated Press.
