Thunder Look To Continue Rolling Over Jazz

The Oklahoma City Thunder have not had many issues when facing off against the Utah Jazz. OKC has won seven of the past eight meetings with the Jazz, including the final three to close out last season. However, the last three meetings between the Thunder and Jazz have been settled by eight points or less.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in 9 of the Thunder' last 12 games against the Jazz.
  • The Jazz are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games vs the Northwest Division.
  • The Jazz are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games with no days off between games.

OKC’s new big three melded well in their first game together with Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony combining to score 71 points while shooting 43.6% from the floor. Westbrook deferred when all three were on the court at the same time, as he took fewer shots than either Anthony or George but did record nine assists.

A loss on Friday was tough for the Jazz but it was much worse to see Rodney Hood go down with a calf injury. Hood was expected to take on a large portion of the scoring burden after Gordon Heyward went to Boston during the offseason but will almost certainly miss at least a few games. That means the Jazz will be leaning on the frontcourt pairing of Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert even more in this game.
