The Utah Jazz host the Oklahoma City Thunder. Big game for a number of reasons. OKC is fighting for playoff position. Hot Rod just passed away. This is the first game between these two teams since they made a pretty significant trade. And something something Enes Kanter something something.

It's going to be an emotional game for all parties involved.

One of these two teams is going to the playoffs, one team isn't. Can you pick which one is which?

Who are all these people who claim to be OKC fans???

This just makes me think that if John Stockton and Karl Malone played in the youtube / NBA League Pass / Vine / twitter era maybe there would be more Jazz fans today.

Anyone else to come off the bench?

Injuries:

  • Kevin Durant (OKC) -- out
  • Serge Ibaka (OKC) -- out
  • Alec Burks (UTA) -- out
  • Nick Collison (OKC) -- out
  • Andre Roberson (OKC) -- out
  • Derrick Favors (UTA) -- doubtful
  • Rodney Hood (UTA) -- probable
  • Dante Exum (UTA) -- should play, missed a lot of last game due to the flu
  • Gordon Hayward (UTA) -- wearing protective gear on his shoulder

I really hope Utah wins tonight.

GO JAZZ GO!
