The Utah Jazz found themselves struggling to come back from a 12-point halftime deficit and fell to Oklahoma City Friday night.

Enes Kanter put in a big game for the Jazz with a career high 18 points, 14 of those coming in the fourth quarter alone.

The Jazz pulled within five points after Kanter made a three point play with just under eight minutes remaining in the game. This capped a 9-2 scoring run by the Jazz, but they were unable to finish with the same intensity, ultimately allowing the Thunder to close out a double digit victory.

Kevin Durrant scored 25 points and Russel Westbrook added a double-double with 23 points and 13 rebounds to lead Oklahoma City.

Full recap coming soon.
