Thunder plays quality music to Jazz, 121-105
For the second time this season, the Thunder showed to Utah Jazz what is it like to play for the name in front of the jersey not the one on the back.
OKC won over Utah with a result 121-105 Saturday night as the crowd at EnergySolutions Arena watched magic happen silently.
Russell Westbrook proved to everybody he's one of Oklahoma City Thunder's main pillars as he scored 33 points, 10 assists and a marvelous, career-high four 3-pointers.
Humble Durant scored 21 points and 12 rebounds, Jeff Green had 20, while former Jazzman Eric Maynor came off the bench and scored 10 points in the first half.
The Thunder had a few problems at the beginning of the game with Utah scoring their first 11 shots. But shortly after that, our guys bounced back at their usual majesty which they make it look so simple.
OKC took the lead of the game on the second quarter when Green switched over a three-point play by changing it 57-56. Green didn't stop at this - he continued scoring another three-point play to help the Thunder leave behind Utah with a result 62-57 at halftime.
This game marked the fifth victory of their last six games which contributed at Thunder leading the Northwest Division.
Next for the Thunder is Memphis, Tuesday. Until then, don't forget - THUNDERUP!!!
