SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Trey Burke scored 22 points off the bench to lead the Utah Jazz to a 94-89 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.
The Jazz needed extra offense with Derrick Favors sidelined with back spasms and Burke provided it.
The Thunder were poised for a blowout as Russell Westbrook scored 13 first-quarter points and Oklahoma City led by 16 early in the second quarter. Utah quieted Westbrook and outscored the Thunder 55-29 over the next quarter and a half to take a 10-point lead into the fourth.
Gordon Hayward scored 17 and Rudy Gobert added 13 points, 15 rebounds and four blocks.
Westbrook warmed back up in the fourth and ended the night with 37 points, six assists and eight rebounds. Enes Kanter had 18 and 11 rebounds against his former team.
