Jazz get first glimpse at retooled Thunder

(TSX / STATS) -- SALT LAKE CITY -- Offensive firepower isn't the only thing new-look Oklahoma City has to offer. The Thunder are showing early signs of being equally capable of overwhelming opponents on the defensive end.

Oklahoma City made a big defensive statement in its season opener. The Thunder forced New York to commit 26 turnovers and turned them into 37 points en route to a 105-84 victory over the Knicks.

It should serve Oklahoma City well when the Thunder visit the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.
