Thunder Run Jazz Out of The Building! 114-93

utahatokc2The Thunder came into tonight's game with something to prove, that not only are they NOT the worst team in the league, but they could actually beat a team with a winning record. In the back of their minds as well was an early November loss in Utah where the Jazz absolutely shellacked the Thunder, and at times were up by more than 30. Last night though the Thunder got to feel what it was like to not only defeat a winning team, but to absolutely dominate a winning team, and they were able to do that despite a pretty bad turnover deficit.


The biggest factor tonight was shutting down Mehmut Okur, who has been a monster for the Jazz. The Thunder held Okur to Just 9 points and 9 Rebounds, and those 9 boards led the Jazz. Oklahoma City continued its dominance on the glass, just destroying the Jazz 48-26 in the Rebound department, and when you get nearly 2 rebounds for every one the other team gets your going to win a lot of ball games.


Our big 3 lead the way again offensively for the Thunder, Jeff Green had a team high 23, followed by 22 for RW0, and 21 for Kevin Durant. Nick Collison and Nenad Krstic proved to be an excellent tag team inside combining for 27 points and 22 rebounds, and it looks like Scott Brooks is beginning to find a combination that works for the Thunder in the Center Position. The Thunder get a day off before welcoming the Detroit Pistons to the Ford Center on Friday, and I don't think the team has forgotten their loss to Detroit either.

Thunder win!
