Westbrook triple double as Thunder down Jazz

Steven Adams shines again in Oklahoma City Thunder comeback win over Utah Jazz Andre Roberson flies under the radar to spark a Thunder comeback over the Jazz

Even though he had only four points, Andre Roberson was credited with being the main reason Oklahoma City came back to beat the Utah Jazz 100-94 Tuesday night at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. "If we get a defensive rebound we get a chance to play in flow and the game doesn't stagnate in the halfcourt". His defense was spectacular for 48 minutes. "It's a team. I think you all benefit from each other when you're out there on the floor and playing the right way".

When Westbrook re-entered the game at the 7:30 mark, the lead was down to six and he immediately hit a pull-up jumper from 15 feet.

Westbrook finished with 14 assists and 13 rebounds. George and Adams scored 21 and 20, respectively, while Anthony added 14 markers. Thabo Sefalosha finished with 11 points, eight rebounds and four steals in a fine performance off the bench, and Alec Burks also scored 11 in a reserve role.

The Jazz (13-12) saw their six-game win run stopped despite getting 31 points from rookie Donovan Mitchell.

As the Thunder have begun to find some footing after a rocky start, Steven Adams has emerged as a go-to secondary option to support Russell Westbrook.

"I thought in the third quarter he gave them a lot of energy and gave them points". Russell Westbrook turned it up defensively. "It's a good feeling, as long as we're winning". "We've got to be able to play through that".

The Thunder finally took the lead on a layup by Westbrook with about four minutes remaining. Minnesota Timberwolves and San Antonio Spurs, Anthony attempted a total of 17 shots; and for the first time in his career, he scored in single digits in consecutive games. "I have great respect for every guy on this team and their ability offensively, but there are times where you just have to pull back on some things". Thunder PG Russell Westbrook blocked his 200th career shot, becoming the only player in National Basketball Association history with 200 blocks, 5,000 assists and 15,000 points in his first 700 career games.

After a Jazz turnover Anthony scored.

"The reason why Steven is doing what he's doing is because of Carmelo Anthony and Paul George", Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan said. It was off target, but Adams tipped in the miss to put the Thunder up 97-92 with 43 seconds on the clock.

After the Jazz regained the lead briefly, George drove to the basket, finishing and picking up the foul to put the Thunder back in front.

"I don't know how serious, or when we'll be able to evaluate", Suns interim coach Jay Triano said. "We stuck together through adversity and came out and got it done in the fourth".

But with Utah seemingly poised for victory, the Thunder exploded in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Jazz 32-14 to win.
