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

He cut a 10-point deficit to five in the closing stages of the third and put the finishing touches on the win with a spinning layup with less than two minutes to go in the fourth quarter.

He would return to the game, but he was unable to help the Jazz come back for a victory.

With the series levelled at 1-1, the teams will head to Utah for games three and four.

"There was just a point where I stopped being aggressive, "Mitchell said, per ESPN's Royce Young".

It was what fueled them all night.

The Oklahoma City Thunder brought the thunder in Game 1 against the Utah Jazz with an impressive 116-108 win. Even if I miss, as you saw on the boards, they were right there crashing and getting rebounds. Chris Paul added two free throws after that for Houston, but a tip-in by Karl-Anthony Towns got Minnesota back within 3. The game was defensive and played in Utah's style.

Ingles was disappointing by his standards, putting up 13 points, two rebounds, and an assist in his 31 minutes; with a smothering George making life hard for him. OKC routinely took bad shots after very little offensive movement, a recurring issue for this squad. 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. "The first half we got stagnant offensively". He fouled out late in the fourth after struggling with foul trouble all game. "I think if he was feeling something, he didn't show it, and he played through it". "I think it just took a couple games, a couple weeks or something to get used to it". He was being more judicious about when to shoot and was looking to set up teammates.

Utah led 53-46 at halftime behind 12 points from Rubio and 10 points and eight rebounds from Favors. The 13th overall pick of last year's draft averaged 20.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.5 steals in 33.4 minutes per game in 79 games for the Jazz during the regular season.

The Thunder is hoping for another hot shooting night to go up 2-0 in the series.

George then attacked and made a tough floater before Westbrook grabbed his own miss and found Carmelo Anthony for a second chance three-pointer.

Donovan Mitchell was having a quiet night for most of the game, getting harassed by Corey Brewer for three quarters.
