Three keys

Slow start: The Jazz missed 15 of their first 16 shots and ended up shooting just 35.6 percent for the night.

Out of gas: Utah ran on fumes at the end of a brutal back-to-back-to-back set, while OKC hadn't played since Friday.

Bearded wonder: All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook played well, but James Harden (22 points) stole the show.
