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

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.

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. Rubio had a good fantasy night in Game 1 putting up around 40 fantasy points.

Through the first two games of the series, the Thunder have shot 44.0 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from the 3-point region.

Brown Scores 30, Celtics Win Again
Kyrie Irving done for the year after knee surgery? Marcus Smart goes out? The Bucks were giddy to get Boston in the first round. At one point in the fourth quarter, Milwaukee found itself shooting over 60 percent from the floor and still trailing by 18.

For context, Rubio, the current Jazz guard, played his first six National Basketball Association seasons in Minnesota but never once made it to the playoffs with them.

So this looks like a long series in the making, with Game 3 booked Saturday at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Mitchell suffered a toe injury in the fourth quarter of the Jazz's 116-108 loss in game one on Sunday. "Donovan, obviously, his aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there and the combination of those two things".

Terry Rozier added 23 points for Boston, which took a 2-0 series lead in the first-round matchup. "They punched us back tonight, and now, we've got to go on the road and get a win at their place, and that's the mindset".

Brandon Marshall: Let go by Giants
Which Teams Are the Best Fit for Dez? Although, if Marshall's failed physical came as a surprise, then those plans could change. It makes sense that the 34-year-old agreed to take less money to remain with the Giants, though it doesn't matter now.

The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly entering the offseason having the highest salary cap space among the NBA's 30 teams, which would be enough to sign both LeBron James and Paul George.

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. He hit a deep 2-pointer to close the quarter and give the Thunder an 81-72 lead. George had 18 points on 21 shots, Anthony had 17 points on 18 shots, and Westbrook had 19 points on 19 shots.

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. Mitchell said he was fine, but the Jazz did not say he was good to go until just minutes before game two.

Utah sagged off the Thunder's non-shooters throughout crunch time, the typical treatment for those kinds of players during the playoffs. "Fourth quarter, we just didn't shoot the ball well".
