"That's good, mate", the New Zealander said.

In the two previous games, against the Timberwolves and Spurs, Anthony attempted a total of 17 shots, and for the first time in his career he scored in single digits in consecutive games.

Coach Billy Donovan pointed to the Thunder's two high-profile acquisitions as the reason Adams' offensive game has opened up. "When we're patient on offense, Steven's going to get those opportunities".

"For me, personally, it's just about doing something different, seeing where the team really needs me on a night-to-night basis", Anthony said Sunday. He finished with his seventh triple-double of the season, 34-13-14 in 38 minutes.

Anthony and George combined for 19 points in the fourth quarter to help Oklahoma City complete the rally.

It didn't look good there for a while, but the Thunder overcame a 17-point deficit to take home a 100-94 victory against the Jazz.

He closed out the third quarter strong with 11 points, helping the Thunder cut Utah's lead to 80-68 by the end of the period.

"I thought in the third quarter he gave them a lot of energy and gave them points".

Curry - playing with a sore finger on his shooting hand - had 16 of his points in the first quarter, then 10 more in the third.

The Jazz, who matched a season high with 16 steals on the night, had taken it to the Thunder from the opening tip as they sank their first four shots and raced to an 11-4 lead early.
