Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 23.7 points and 4.7 rebounds while Luguentz Dort is averaging 12.6 points and 3.5 rebounds.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.9 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 117.1 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 107.4 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 26.3 points and 5.3 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.2 points and 2.2 assists.

The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Jazz are 20-6 ATS in their last 26 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 8-2 in Thunder last 10 road games. The over is 9-4 in Jazz last 13 Tuesday games. The Thunder are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah and 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have not only lost six straight games, but they're losing their last five games by an average of 26.8 points while shooting 43.1 percent from the field. The Utah Jazz are on the end of a back to back and are fresh off a loss to the Wizards, but they're still 33-21 against the spread on the season and 20-7 against the spread at home. The number is massive, but I'm either backing the Jazz or passing on this game.
