SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Russell Westbrook led the way with 28 points Friday, lifting Oklahoma City to a 101-87 win that gave Utah its first three-game losing streak of the season.
The Thunder completed a five-game road trip with a 3-2 record and will now play six of their next seven at home, where they have lost just once this year.
Oklahoma City converted 27-of-32 foul shots to pull away in the fourth quarter. Kevin Durant added 19 points for the Thunder and Serge Ibaka made 7-of-10 from the field while scoring 16 points with nine rebounds.
Utah has dropped five out of six in its first struggling stretch of the campaign. After a solid start to the year, the Jazz are only one game above the .500 mark.
Al Jefferson scored 20 to lead Utah.
