Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Gordon Hayward, Burks — four lottery picks from the 2010 and 2011 drafts. Four of the best young players in the NBA. Four crucial pieces in one of the Jazz’s best wins of the season — a victory Utah captured without starters Al Jefferson and Raja Bell, and with key reserve Earl Watson stuck on the bench.

Kanter added a season-high 17 points on 6-of-7 shooting for the Jazz (23-22), grabbing six rebounds and at times embarrassing Los Angeles’ weak interior defense. Favors traded his second consecutive start for 12 points and a team-high 10 boards, including five offensive rebounds. And even though Hayward was held scoreless, he ran the court at critical times and never played out of character.

And it can get even smaller with each round.

“One free throw, one missed switch, one missed uncontested three, one missed cut-out can mean the game,” Izzo said. “If Day-Day (Green) and Austin (Thornton) and (Brandon) Wood and (Anthony) Ianni are done (all are seniors), you’re going to feel bad that we made that mistake.
