Facing elimination, the Utah Jazz will change their starting lineup before Game 4 of their 2012 NBA Playoffs first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. Coach Ty Corbin told reporters that he will move promising young forward Derrick Favors into the starting lineup and take veteran small forward Josh Howard out. Via Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Favors, Jefferson and Millsap fared well playing at the same time down the stretch of the regular season as the Jazz pushed into the playoffs, but have been less effective in this series. Nevertheless, Corbin is looking to get his three best frontcourt players on the court at the same time, even if none play the traditional small forward position.
