The Oklahoma City Thunder will shoot for their fourth consecutive victory on Friday night as they host the Utah Jazz, who are just 3-7 on the road this season.

The Thunder are coming off of two straight blowout victories, defeating the Houston Rockets by 22 points on Wednesday after dropping the Charlotte Bobcats by 45 on Monday. Meanwhile, the Jazz notched a 96-84 road win over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday. Utah has won two out of its last three on the road, and five of six overall.

Oklahoma City will have to focus its attention on several different players on Friday; while the Jazz don't have a definitive scorer, they do feature six guys who average double-digits in scoring. Al Jefferson tops the list, scoring 16.6 points and averaging 10.6 rebounds per game.

The Jazz face the tough task of stopping the Thunder's two-headed monster, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, both of whom are averaging more than 20 points per game.
