The Oklahoma City Thunder didn't just lose to the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night—they were hosed.

Riding a two-game losing streak, the Jazz upset Oklahoma City, 109-94, to snap OKC's four-game winning streak.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook accounted for more than half of the Thunders' points on Tuesday night but didn't receive much help from their teammates while the Jazz saw six players score in double figures.

It was an all-around dominant performance by the Jazz, who out out-rebounded the Thunder 38-26 and saw their bench score 49 points to OKC's 25.

The Thunder looked off all night, as the team turned it over 20 times and saw Kevin Martin go just 3-of-8 from the field.

Al Jefferson led the way for the Jazz, pouring in 23 points to go with seven rebounds and a block, while Derrick Favors provided a spark off the bench, scoring 15 points in 22 minutes.

Kevin Durant was the high scorer for the Thunder, netting 33 points and grabbing six boards, but it wasn't enough for Oklahoma City.

 

Player of the Game: Paul Millsap

He wasn't Utah's leading scorer on Tuesday night, but Paul Millsap was the best player on the floor for the Jazz.

Millsap put up a double-double on the Thunder, scoring 18 points and pulling down 10 rebounds while adding six assists.

The 28-year-old power forward was 8-of-14 from the field and was active on the offensive glass, grabbing five offensive rebounds.
