Paul George and Donovan Mitchell Will Play in Thunder-Jazz Game 2

A missed 3-pointer from Thunder forward Jerami Grant should not have been so significant. Anthony's baseline jumper culminated the burst with 1:02 remaining. Combine that with Adams being in foul trouble most of the night and it was not the Thunder's game.

Thanks to Derrick Favors' performance, Wednesday's Game 2 of the Jazz's series with Oklahoma City will evoke comparisons to their Game 7 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers last April.

"I fell on my left side and from there it just got a little sore on me", George said. He had averaged more than 27 points per game in the playoffs for the Pacers the past two years.

Having won the first game, the Thunder looked likely to go up 2-0 in a playoff series for the first time since 2013, but a cold fourth quarter cost them.

"They made adjustments from Game 1". He finished with nine points and seven rebounds. He went an abysmal 0-of-7 in the fourth quarter, failing to score any points whatsoever with the game in the balance.

Rookie Donovan Mitchell added a game high 28. "I expect these two, three days in between going to Utah, I should be back to 100 [percent]". "Without Fav we wouldn't even be at this point". "You have to close out the quarters, try not to give them momentum going into the next quarter and giving them confidence", said point guard Raymond Felton. "I think the entire game, we could have executed better". Russell Westbrook led OKC in scoring with 19 points. But Utah countered with a 18-3 run of its own.

Utah entered halftime with a 53-46 edge after Rubio posted 12 points, five rebounds and five assists in the first 24 minutes, but allowed a 19-0 OKC run in the third to fall behind by as many as nine.

The Thunder had a chance.

"Just being aggressive, getting to the rim, getting to the free throw line". And they couldn't go shot-for-shot with him. Paul George shot just 6 of 21 while finishing with 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Carmelo Anthony had 17 points and nine rebounds. Coming in, everyone in the Thunder locker room knew this Jazz team was serious, and expected adversity in the series. "I think today I did my job, looking for my teammates but looking for my shot when it was open".
