Jazz star (foot) participates in shootaround, still questionable for Game 2

Jazz star (foot) participates in shootaround, still questionable for Game 2

Thunder duo Paul George and Steven Adams combine to block Utah Jazz centre Rudy Gobert's shot. He initially returned after suffering the injury but came out of the game for good about a minute later.

For the Thunder, the shots that fell in Game 1 did not in Game 2, much as it has been night to night for this team all season.

What did you think of the Jazz's win? All told, Utah outscored OKC 28-16 in the fourth, escaping with a 102-95 victory.

Westbrook had just 19 points and Anthony 17 points.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan said he'd wait until closer to game time to determine George's status.

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell is going through warmups Wednesday prior to Game 3. His performance was a big reason for the Jazz winning the battle on the boards 56-46. Utah had nine offensive rebounds in the first half, six of those by Favors.

16 & 29: OKC turned the ball over 16 times, resulting in 29 points for the Jazz.

When Utah put together a 14-3 run midway through the second quarter to extend its lead to 7, the Thunder was put in a hole it had to dig out of in the third quarter.

12 & 10: There were 12 lead changes and 10 ties.

After getting a stop, Russell Westbrook saw a soft defensive presence in front of him and took a dribble up three-pointer that dropped straight through the net, setting off a shockwave. Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points to lead Minnesota. He was thoroughly outplayed by Mitchell down the stretch.

George missed 15 of his 21 field goals for the game.

In the Thunder's 116-108 Game 1 win, George was mostly lights-out for Oklahoma City. "It didn't really hurt too much, but I went 0 for 7 from three". However, after finding a bit of rhythm to close the third, he took over in the fourth. "Without Fav we wouldn't even be at this point".

Corey & JG. Corey Brewer posted 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting, finishing as a +9. Game 2 is Wednesday night in Houston.

In between the first two games of the series, the 27-year-old forward was handled with care. He was held scoreless in 15 minutes tonight.

"They went on a 19-0 run", Mitchell said. The backbreakers came when the Thunder cut the Jazz lead down to just two at 95-93 with 2:23 to go. "I think today I did my job, looking for my teammates but looking for my shot when it was open".

"The entire game we could have executed better", Donovan said.
