After stumbling with a two game losing streak shortly after losing Russell Westbrook to injury, the Oklahoma City Thunder have rebounded with two wins and still hold the best record in the Western Conference. Things shouldn't change much tonight as they take on the Utah Jazz, the Western Conference's worst team (11-25). According to ESPN on Jan. 7, the Thunder just traded Ryan Gomes and might be on the path to signing a new reserve guard to help out until Westbrook returns. Here is how fans can follow the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Utah Jazz live stream tonight.

Of course, with the way Reggie Jackson has been playing, the Thunder should be fine until Westbrook returns around the All Star Break. Jackson is coming off his best scoring game, with 27 points against Boston on Sunday night, but he is only dishing out 4.6 assists a game since taking over for Westbrook, a number he should bring up some. The Thunder also have Jeremy Lamb really coming into his own as Jackson's immediate back up.
The Jazz may have the worst record in the Western Conference, but one of the Thunder's two losses since Westbrook went down was to a 12-win Toronto team, so they can't take anyone lightly. The Jazz are on a three-game winning streak (all on the road) but only two of their 11 wins this season have been against teams with a winning record.
