Mitchell is officially a game time decision, and his foot injury is of concern to the training staff for Utah, but this is the playoffs. "Just being aggressive, getting to the rim, getting to the free-throw line". "I think today I did my job, looking for my teammates but looking for my shot when it was open".

"Gobert would clean up the glass and be the premier shot blocker while Randle would be the go-to option off of pick and rolls. 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 thought we even had times where we rolled to the basket and we had a presence at the basket".

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. George had 18 points on 21 shots, Anthony had 17 points on 18 shots, and Westbrook had 19 points on 19 shots.

And after coming off second-best in his heated match-up with Paul George in Game 1 of the Thunder-Jazz first round playoff series, the Aussie is keen to get back on the court.

"I think the word "physicality" gets used in a way that sometimes people think it's just, like, guys banging into each other", Donovan said. "That's what we did". Rudy Gobert scored 14 points, and Joe Ingles and Jae Crowder each added 13 for the Jazz.

35-18: Utah outscored OKC 35-18 after the Thunder took a 10-point lead with 1:02 remaining in the third quarter. He set an Oklahoma City playoff record with eight 3-pointers, blowing past the previous mark of five.

However, Indiana was six of 22 on three-point attempts while Cleveland was 11 of 28.

But for Adams, it was an outing to forget as he was hampered by early foul trouble, before fouling out in the vital stages of the fourth quarter. Oklahoma City closed the quarter on a 21-9 run to take a 79-74 lead.

Still, Oklahoma City outscored Utah 33-21 in the third quarter, a period of notorious struggles throughout the regular season, when opponents outscored OKC by 4.5 points per 100 possessions during thirds, 24th in the National Basketball Association. Jonas Jerebko scored 10 points in 12:46 as a reserve. "Just be big on the boards, keep getting to the hole, kick out for threes and just knock down the shots".

Supporting casts - If Mitchell and/or George fail to show up, the spotlight will be on the supporting players to step up and help carry the load.

When the final buzzer sounded in the Thunder's 102-95 loss to Utah on Wednesday, Steven Adams came back to talk to official Gary Zielinski and didn't seem much happier with what he heard. "Donovan, obviously, his aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there". Game 3 will be Saturday (Sunday NZT) in Utah.
