Jazz 97 OKC 81 (or how the Jazz PWND the Thunder)

What was fun about this one is that we blew out a team at home that we should have blown out (Westbrook and Harden didn't play).

How we PWND the Thunder-

<ul>

<li>Durant had a .211 LHM batting average (i.e. he had a good night, but not an All-Star or MVP type night)</li>

<li>Cole Aldrich led their team in rebounds (10), blocks (3), and LHM batting avgerage (.406); when Cole Aldrich is the best player on your team, you're getting PWND</li>

<li>We held the Thunder to 37.2% shooting</li>

<li>We outscored the Thunder 46 to 38 in the paint</li>

<li>We outscored the Thunder 29 to 16 on fast breaks</li>

<li>We forced them into 21 turnovers which led to 27 points for us</li>

</ul>

The bright spots-

<ul>

<li>Kanter was beasting it again with a .556 LHM batting average; he had 12 points and 12 boards in 18 minutes; and one sweet reverse dunk</li>

<li>G-Time and Big Al rebounded from their poor GSW performance coming up with LHM batting averages of .524 and .476, respectively; G-Time filled up the stat sheet with 13 pts, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks</li>

<li>Mo and Marv had tremendous games once again having LHM batting averages of .522 and .478, respectively</li>

<li>Eric Bourquinis played well in 18 minutes getting 7 pts, 1 board, 1 assist, and a steal and ending up with a .389 LHM batting average; also had a sweet dunk and debated Kanter on whose dunk was better</li>

<li>Favors got to start and had 4 boards, a steal and 3 amazing blocks; however, he struggled from the floor garnering only 1 point on 5 shots</li>

Perspective - Second preseason game against a team without key players; seems like we're heading in the right direction
