Thunder Drop Game 2 to Jazz in Playoff Series

Carmelo says ‘Playoff P’ nickname can stay if Paul George plays well

Utah rookie Donovan Mitchell had 13 points in the fourth quarter. Westbrook led all three in scoring with 19 points and 13 assists. Gobert finished with 13 points and 15 rebounds, power forward Derrick Favors had 20 points and 16 rebounds, while the backcourt duo of Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio combined for 50 points. Expect George, who had eight three-pointers in Game 1, to start and be available in full capacity Wednesday night.

George starred for the Thunder in their 116-108 win - dropping 36 points (8-11 3FG) - and had a bit to say to Ingles both during the game, and after.

Throughout the campaign, the shooting guard racked up multiple milestones and he continued that in game two as it proved to be another historic night for him.

The rookie standout continued his splurge in the fourth quarter and made a floater to give the Jazz an 81-80 edge with 9:50 left.

"I've got to keep applying pressuring, getting to the rim and even if I miss, as you saw on the boards, they were right there crashing and getting rebounds", he added. On the defensive end, it's all about slowing Donovan Mitchell and limiting the damage Utah is doing on the offensive glass/in the paint.

Pacers' Victor Oladipo Fueled By Dan Gilbert Slight
The top-seeded Rockets had their hands full with the No. 8 Timberwolves on a night where Houston made just 10 of 37 3-pointers. So I knew Doma wouldn't want me to sugarcoat anything, but I had to check in with him - let him know what I was thinking.

Important questions are surrounding Wednesday night's 2nd game between the Thunder and the Utah Jazz. The latest win required more toughness and determination, after everything fell apart for them during OKC's 19-0 run in the third period. Minnesota scored four straight points to get within 3 with about 30 seconds left. Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points, but made just six of 18 shots.

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 were outscored 33-21 in the third quarter before bouncing back in the fourth.

In this game of runs, the Jazz had withstood the Thunder's best punch, and after staggering for five scoreless minutes, regrouped and swung back. "I think if he was feeling something, he didn't show it, and he played through it". "Fourth quarter, we just didn't shoot the ball well".

Making matters worse, he missed two three-pointers in the final minute that would have given OKC a fighting chance. "Now it's our turn to make some adjustments and figure out what we're going to do", Anthony said.
