The Utah Jazz have had some shaky results as of late, they're not covering like they used to, and this is an experienced team on the road before Thanksgiving. The Jazz likely want to get in and get out. The Oklahoma City Thunder don't win, but they compete, and they're a young club still eager to prove itself. OKC only loses at home by an average of 3.8 points. Give me OKC and the boatload of free buckets.
