The Thunder are just a better team than the Jazz, and it showed in Oklahoma City. Kevin Durant scored 25 and Russell Westbrook had a near quadruple double (yes, you read that correctly) with 23 points, 13 rebounds, eight assists, and seven steals to lead the Thunder. Kevin Martin finished with 19 off the bench, while Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins each added 12.
Enes Kanter led the Jazz (yes, you read that correctly too) with a career high 18 points on 8-of-11 from the field, with seven boards in just 15 minutes of playing time. Jefferson had 16 & 11 while Mo, Millsap, and Hayward each finished with 13. Foye added 12 on 4-of-8 from downtown.
Carroll started in Marvin’s stead, scoring four points on 2-of-5 with four rebounds, three blocks, and two steals, playing solid defense.
The game had an Alec Burks sighting. He played 14 minutes, scoring just three on 1-of-5 with two rebounds, a steal, a block, and a turnover.
Favors played just nine minutes before leaving with injury and is questionable heading into tomorrow night’s match-up with the Rockets.
The Jazz fall to 9-8 and will need a victory in Houston to come out on the winning side of the 3-game road trip.
Jazz player of the game: Enes Kanter
