Paul George, Donovan Mitchell questionable for Thunder vs Jazz Game 2

Paul George, Donovan Mitchell questionable for Thunder vs Jazz Game 2

Anthony's baseline jumper culminated the burst with 1:02 remaining.

Donovan Mitchell was having a quiet night for most of the game, getting harassed by Corey Brewer for three quarters. But in the fourth quarter, Westbrook, George and Anthony combined to shoot 0-for-14 from the field, a very unlikely event to be repeated.

The Utah Jazz will return to Salt Lake City for Game 3 tied 1-1 in the series with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Thunder needed those shots from the Grants of the world. "Just have to do a better job on getting involved (with) some of my teammates sometimes".

No Bueno. Alex Abrines scored 11 points in Game 1. The Jazz had been trailing most of the second half but outscored the Thunder 28-16 in the final quarter to earn the win on the road.

Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell has a foot contusion, and although he himself seems confident he will play in game 2 after posting 27-points in just 34-minutes of his first ever playoff game, the team said his status for the game Wednesday will be determined Tuesday afternoon. Ricky Rubio chipped in 22 points for the Jazz. His damage was truly done behind the arc where he nailed 8 three's, making them at a 72% clip. According to LA Sports Hub's Jason Reed, Randle may end up forming a new Big Three in Utah next season with Rookie of the Year candidate Donovan Mitchell and last season's National Basketball Association blocks leader Rudy Gobert.

For the Thunder, being able to deal with Utah's tough, hard-nosed defense - keyed by Gobert - remains a major point of emphasis. "I expect these two, three days in between going to Utah, I should be back to 100 [percent]". OKC is going to need better performances from Westbrook and George in particular if they want to steal a game in Utah and take back homecourt.

The 21-year-old posted 28 points in a 102-95 win that evened the first round series at 1-1.

"They went on a 19-0 run", Mitchell said.

"I think all season really, there have been times where I've played - you would know stats - but millions of pick and rolls in a game and times where I've played barely any".

Oklahoma City fell down 67-58 midway through the third quarter.

The Thunder had a chance. Gobert went 5 for 6 from the free-throw line in the fourth to capitalize on the fouls. And they couldn't go shot-for-shot with him.

Steven Adams, who battled foul trouble all game, finished with just nine points on four of five shooting. She is known for her illustrations of Thunder players. "But looking for my shot too when it was open". Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points, but made just six of 18 shots. It showed late Wednesday.

Over the past few days, George had been limited in practice and there were times where the Thunder suggested that there was a question as to whether or not he would even play. Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points to lead Minnesota.
