OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma — The Oklahoma City Thunder (11-12, 9-3 Home) erased a 12-point fourth quarter deficit to defeat the Jazz, 100-94 on Tuesday night behind Steven Adams 20 points and nine rebounds- snapping their six game win streak. The victory markes the Thunders third straight win, and Adams has played a huge role in that averaging 22 points and 8.3 rebounds on 28 of 34 made shots from the field.
“The reason why Steven is doing what he’s going is because of Carmelo Anthony and Paul George,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. “When we’re patient on offense, Steven’s going to get those opportunities. Steven’s not doing really anything different from maybe he’s done in the past.”
Reigning NBA Most Valuable Player, Russell Westbrook’s recorded 34 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds to register his seventh triple-double of the season.
Paul George scored 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Carmelo Anthony added 14 points and eight rebounds.
