Jazz fall to .500 with 106-94 loss to Thunder

Russell Westbrook scored 31 points, Kevin
Durant added 29 and the Oklahoma City Thunder pulled away from the
depleted Utah Jazz in the second half for a 106-94 victory
Wednesday night.
The Jazz played without starting point guard Devin Harris
because of a strained right hamstring, and Andrei Kirilenko sat out
the second half after bruising a nerve in his left knee. That
proved to be too much to overcome.
Utah eliminated an early 10-point deficit and was up by one
early in the third quarter, but Durant and Westbrook eventually
took over.
Al Jefferson had 32 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Jazz, who
fell to .500 for the first time since Nov. 6 and dropped four games
behind Memphis for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference
with 10 games left.
