NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz (13-11) take on the Oklahoma City Thunder (10-13) tonight in Oklahoma City. The game will be the second of four times the teams will meet this season. The first meeting, back in October, was all Jazz. The Jazz surprisingly dominated the game winning 96-87. Russell Westbrook scored 6 points and had 7 turnovers. It’s safe to assume he will be looking for revenge tonight against the stifling Jazz defense.
