Mitchell lifts Jazz past Thunder 102-95 to even series

The Little Things Piled Up on the Thunder – OKC 95 UTA 102        By Nick Gallo | Thunder Basketball Writer

Paul George started Game 2 of the Oklahoma City Thunder's first-round series against the Utah Jazz.

If they are to do so, though, it will be vital that they make some adjustments as well as have some key aspects go in their favor, beginning first and foremost with shutting down Oklahoma City's hero in Game 1 - Paul George. As for Mitchell, Rubio's current backcourt partner, he found Lee's tweet pretty amusing and hit the "like" button on it before posting a cryptic emoji one of his own. The Jazz would take a 53-46 lead into halftime. Neither bench did much in this game as the Jazz bench produced 16 points while the Thunder were at 21.

"He let me know I went 0 of 7 from 3 and I'm letting guys off the hook", Mitchell said. Mitchell slashed into the lane for a bucket, and Rubio drilled a corner three (after a dunk by Adams).

Another 3-pointer by Rubio gave Utah a 92-89 lead with 4:02 left, and the lead reached 99-93 on Mitchell's basket with 1:33 left.

TJ Perenara latest to slam Folau comments
Do not let these comments keep you from being yourself. "This is not about money or bargaining power or contracts". On Tuesday, Chiefs scrumhalf Brad Weber tweeted: 'Kinda sick of us players staying quiet on some of this stuff .

Thunder center Steven Adams picked up his fourth foul with 6:46 left in the third quarter and the Thunder down 65-58, yet Oklahoma City responded with a run.

For the Thunder, it was often the Russell Westbrook show, and he was scoreless in the second quarter and had just a couple of free throws in the fourth. George's absence would also be a huge blow, but at least they have two other stars in Westbrook and Anthony who can step up and take on a bigger load on offense. He was being more judicious about when to shoot and was looking to set up teammates.

Derrick Favors had career playoff bests of 20 points and 16 rebounds for the Jazz, and Ricky Rubio had 22 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in the first playoff win of his seven-year career. There was a determination, and we felt like we just needed to rely on our defense-and that's what we did. "Donovan, obviously, his aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there and the combination of those two things".
