#sportsscores | Jazz vs. Thunder score: Live updates as Utah looks to make it two straight wins since NBA restart in bubble


It’s Day 3 of bubble action in Orlando, and the second of five games on the busy Saturday slate is the Utah Jazz vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder. As it stands, the Thunder are the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference, one game back in the loss column of the No. 4 Jazz. The 3-6 seeds in the West are going to be a tight race and you have to wonder if we’re going to see some matchup manipulation as these seeding games wind down. 

While OKC is making its bubble debut, Utah already has a win under its belt, defeating the Pelicans on Thursday. Mike Conley was great in that game, which is a great sign for a Jazz team that is going to grind to create consistent half-court offense without Bojan Bogdanovic. It’ll be even tougher on Saturday vs. OKC, which registers as the No. 8 defense in the league. The Thunder are a popular sleeper pick in this bubble. Chris Paul has had an All-NBA-level season and has been absolutely clutch. Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz were great down the stretch against New Orleans, but if this game is close, which we suspect it will be, give the edge to Paul and the Thunder.
