Kendrick Perkins putting on a passing clinic vs. Jazz


Oklahoma City Thunder starting center Kendrick Perkins has become the lead distributor for the Thunder in their game versus the Utah Jazz.

Early in the third quarter Perkins is leading the Thunder in assists on his way to tying his career-high of six assists in the game. Perkins has picked apart the Utah defense in a variety of ways thus far from interior dishes to throwing lobs out on the break.

The Thunder are having an easy time handling the Jazz right now and look well on their way to the win. Perkins has stolen the show so far with a couple of highlights including the video above and a behind-the-back pass to Serge Ibaka for a dunk early in the second half.
