George, Mitchell uncertain for Game 2 of Thunder-Jazz

Any bucket. There was a reason Grant's opportunity was the one that was open.

Russell Westbrook also pitched in 29 points, 13 rebounds, and 8 assists to go alongside Carmelo Anthony's 15 points and 7 rebounds.

The Thunder look to improve to 5-4 after winning the first game of a National Basketball Association playoff series at home.

"I fell on my left side and from there it just got a little sore on me", George said. Through two career games in the playoffs, Mitchell has scored 55 points.

"I just stubbed my toe", Mitchell said. "But that doesn't happen unless you're collectively defending as a unit". 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.

Utah Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell lands another basket during his team's 102-95 win over the Thunder. His damage was truly done behind the arc where he nailed 8 three's, making them at a 72% clip. He finished with nine points and seven rebounds. George missed the latter half of the fourth quarter due to muscle tightness. 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.

As for the Thunder, Abrines and Brewer will need to take on more shots in George's absence. The pace was all wrong for the Thunder, much too slow and to Utah's liking.

While both George and Mitchell are officially listed as questionable, George with a hip contusion and Mitchell with a left foot contusion, there's little doubt they will both play even after they were both limited in practice Tuesday. "Without Fav we wouldn't even be at this point". "I think the way we bounced back and responded as a unit, the guys on the bench...everyone's engaged". But Utah countered with a 18-3 run of its own. The Thunder held the Jazz to 7 for 23 shooting in the third quarter before Mitchell took over in the fourth.

The Thunder had a chance.

The Thunder scratched back to tie it at 89, but Utah kept getting huge jump shots from Rubio on the perimeter, and a litany of free throw attempts. "Shots are going to fall". Coming in, everyone in the Thunder locker room knew this Jazz team was serious, and expected adversity in the series.

The shooting lines finished ugly.
