The Utah Jazz defeated the highly-rated Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, 109-94.

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.
