Rookie Donovan Mitchell scored 31 points and Joe Ingles added 16 for the Jazz, who had won six straight and scored at least 106 points in each game. Leaders of the Pack: The Thunder has three players in the Top 5 league leaders as Paul George has the most steals per game (2.50), Russell Westbrook is tied for first in the National Basketball Association in assists per game (9.7) and Steven Adams has the third-best field goal percentage (.639, 106-166 FG).

Oklahoma City outrebounded the Jazz 23-13 in the fourth quarter.
