Jazz clamp down on Thunder

(TSX / STATS) -- SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz used some timely 3-point shooting and got a strong effort in the paint as they took the home an important 96-87 early-season win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

Joe Ingles sparked the Jazz with 19 points while making five 3-point shots. It was his third straight game where he had made a big impact from beyond the arc.

"I got a couple good looks early and just wanted to stay aggressive," said Ingles, who attributed his hot start to feeling comfortable with his teammates and in the system the Jazz are running. "Obviously I'm shooting the ball every day in practice and feel like I'm in a pretty good groove. Just trying to take good looks and it's working."
