Oklahoma City's #35 Kevin Durant chews on his mouth piece as the Utah Jazz play the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday, March 20, 2012 in Salt Lake City. The Jazz and Thunder play tonight, Feb. 12, 2013 in Salt Lake City.
The Oklahoma City Thunder brought their show to Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City Tuesday night, but it is the Jazz who celebrate a double-digit win, after a physical game.
Al Jefferson felt the physicality of the game more than anyone else, as he was twice hit in the face in the first half. Despite that, he still managed 23 points to top the Utah scoring.
The Jazz frustrated all-star Kevin Durant, who had one flagrant and one technical foul as he could not change the result, despite his 33 points.
Derrick Favors had a great game from the bench, scoring 15 points in as 22 minutes, and starter Paul Millsap had a double-double, with 18 points and 10 rebounds.
