Can Streaking Jazz Finally Beat OKC?

The Utah Jazz have bounced back from a lengthy period of awful play to become one of the hottest teams in the NBA at the moment. The Jazz are 6-1 SU and ATS in their past seven outings with their defense holding opponents to just 87.1 points per game in that span. Utah will have a difficult task stopping the second-best offense in the NBA when they visit the Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Jazz have lost nine consecutive games in Oklahoma City.
  • The UNDER is 7-0 in the past seven games between the Jazz and Thunder.
  • The Thunder are 2-4-1 ATS in their past seven games at home.

The Jazz have dropped the first three contests against the Thunder this season, but have only lost the last two by a combined 10 points. With Utah sporting the second-worst offense in the NBA they would rather not get into a shootout with the Thunder, but the Jazz have been finding some scoring recently with the team hitting triple digits in three of their past seven.

Containing Russell Westbrook has been impossible recently. Westbrook will be looking for his fourth consecutive triple-double Thursday, with the point guard averaging 18.3 points, 13 assists and 12.7 rebounds in his past three games. In addition to that, Westbrook and Kevin Durant have averaged a combined 49.3 points per game against the Jazz this season.
