It was not the best recipe for a win. Playing on the second night of a back-to-back, on the road at Utah and without three rotation players including starters Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Terrance Ferguson (hip).
However this Thunder team continues to surprise and Dennis Schroder continues to excel as the team's sixth man. Schroder came off the bench to score 27 points and OKC's defense continued a stingy streak leading to a surprising 104-90 win over the Jazz in Salt Lake City.
It was the Thunder's third straight win and their fifth in the last six games keeping them in 7th place in the Western Conference standings and bringing them to within a game and a half of 6th place Utah.
