NBA Dunk of the Night from Tuesday, January 7

Ben Leibowitz@BenLeboCorrespondent IIIJanuary 8, 2014

Utah Jazz big man Derrick Favors threw down a two-handed slam over Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant on Tuesday, which earned him NBA Dunk of the Night honors.

After Kendrick Perkins left his man to thwart Gordon Hayward, the former Butler standout found Favors, who finished the play with an impressive and-1. Kevin Durant made a valiant effort to get over in time, but even a foul wasn't enough to stop Favors on the interior.

The Jazz went on to beat OKC, 112-101.
