Asked if he saved anything in his tank, Westbrook smiled and said: “Oh, I've always got something in the tank. I could run all night, man. If you say you're tired, then you'll be tired.

OKC had a season-high 14 blocked shots and was led by league-leader Serge Ibaka with seven. Kevin Durant had four and Kendrick Perkins had three. … The Thunder led the NBA in free-throw shooting coming into Friday's game at 84.5 percent, but converted just 72.7 percent (24 for 33) against the Jazz and has shot 41 for 55 (. 745) from the line its last two games. … A sweet and innocent OKC team tied for last in the league in technical fouls during its first year of existence with 31 in 2008-09. The Thunder now ranks third (19) in technical fouls behind the Los Angeles Clippers (24) and Phoenix (20). Westbrook is the individual leader, picking up his fourth on Friday. … Favors only played 9:19 after suffering a strained right arch.
