Playoff P shows why OKC is a legit title threat

Carmelo laughs when he learns about Paul George’s ‘Playoff P’ nickname

Donovan Mitchell, who was questionable for the game due to a foot injury, ended up starting, and he came up big for Utah, pouring in 28 points.

The rest of their Big 3 came through, with Russell Westbrook (29 points, 13 rebounds, 8 assists) and Carmelo Anthony (15 points, 7 boards, 3 steals, 2 blocks) both coming up big. He only had two shot attempts through three quarters leading into the final stages of the fourth, but scored six critical points down the stretch to finish with nine points and seven rebounds.

Ingles was schooled by Thunder All-Star Paul George in Sunday's game one but he responded on Wednesday with a defensive effort that George at just 18 points - down from 36 last time - and scoreless in the decisive last quarter.

In between the first two games of the series, the 27-year-old forward was handled with care. Neither bench did much in this game as the Jazz bench produced 16 points while the Thunder were at 21. And now, their first-round playoff series is tied at one game a piece.

Over the past few days, George had been limited in practice and there were times where the Thunder suggested that there was a question as to whether or not he would even play.

"We needed this win", Favors said during a postgame interview with AT&T SportsNet.

James Harden scored 44 points and powered a big fourth-quarter run that allowed Houston to outlast Minnesota in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series.

Tesla's chief said the company suffered because of the robots
After $-3.84 actual EPS reported by Tesla, Inc . for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 15.89 % negative EPS growth. Investors who buy or sell strictly on analyst targets may be banking on analysts being correct about their projections.

The Thunder gave up 50 points in the paint again and were beaten 20-9 on second-chance points, its interior defense cracked by the Jazz yet again.

The Thunder rattled off 19 consecutive points during the third quarter to turn a 67-58 deficit into a 10-point advantage. "Obviously, I was very upset to hear about the passing of his wife", Donovan said.

Utah entered halftime with a 53-46 edge after Rubio posted 12 points, five rebounds and five assists in the first 24 minutes, but allowed a 19-0 OKC run in the third to fall behind by as many as nine.

"There's things that we can correct, things that we have to correct, things that we will correct".

Imagine the Jazz's winning a road playoff game while going almost six minutes without scoring.

The Other Guys. Five Jazz scored in double-figures: Mitchell (28), Rubio (22 - including 5-of-8 from downtown), Favors (22 - his 8 offensive rebounds having equal, if not greater, importance), Gobert (13), and Jonas Jerebko (10). We really played together and it showed.
