Thunder's George plays in Game 2 vs. Jazz

Thunder's George plays in Game 2 vs. Jazz

The Jazz - led by Mitchell's 28 points, 22 points from Ricky Rubio, and 20 points and 16 rebounds from Derrick Favors - has knotted the series 1-1 as the series shifts back to Utah.

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. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 35 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists before fouling out in overtime.

George slowed as the game continued and went 0 of 6 during the fourth quarter, finishing with 18 points on 6 of 21 shooting.

George scored 36 points in the opener and set a team playoff record with eight 3-pointers in Oklahoma City's 116-108 win, but he missed the last minute to get treatment for a bruised right hip. His 55 points are the most by a guard in his first two postseason contests in National Basketball Association history, passing Michael Jordan's 53 points in 1985, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has thrown his weight behind manager Antonio Conte to overturn the club's fortunes. Chelsea went 2-0 down against Southampton at the weekend before staging a remarkable comeback to win 3-2 at St.

The series is all square at a game a piece with game three Saturday in Utah.

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.

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.

"Donovan's aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us", Snyder said.

The Kings managed to pull Jonathan Quick with just over a minute to go and never really threatened to score with the extra skater. The Los Angeles Kings weren't willing to roll over as they faced the Vegas Golden Knights in an elimination game Tuesday night.

In Game 2, the Jazz defense was more settled and like itself than the opener, and that forced more isolation ball out of Oklahoma City - they had eight assists and nine turnovers in the first half. The latest win required more toughness and determination, after everything fell apart for them during OKC's 19-0 run in the third period.

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.

Making matters worse, he missed two three-pointers in the final minute that would have given OKC a fighting chance.

"We worked so hard in the third quarter to get the lead back and played so well to get back", Anthony said.

That clinched United's sixth win in their last seven league games, but all eyes remained on Pogba. It was Pogba's fate that attracted the most interest.

Utah sagged off the Thunder's non-shooters throughout crunch time, the typical treatment for those kinds of players during the playoffs. "Now it's our turn to make some adjustments and figure out what we're going to do", Anthony said.
