Despite concerns Donovan Mitchell would miss Game 2 due to a foot injury, the rookie led the Utah Jazz to victory Wednesday night. "I've got to keep applying pressure getting to the rim".
The Jazz have now put themselves in a great position to pull off an upset in this series after stealing home-court advantage. Oklahoma City made just nine of 25 shots inside the 3-point line in the first half.
The Utah Jazz fell short in their first game of the 2018 NBA Playoffs as the fourth-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder led by Paul George and Russell Westbrook proved to be too much for Utah to handle. Though Ingles only scored three points from six shots himself in this game, he was huge on the defensive end and this sort of effort is needed when you're coming up against players of George's caliber.
By the time the first quarter ended, the Thunder trailed by just 1 point, but had already given up 20 points in the paint, allowed 6 offensive rebounds (including 5 to the imposing Derrick Favors) and turned the ball over 8 times.
"It was definitely a battle keeping him off the boards", Favors said.

In many cases the performance was less than last year's Galaxy S8 and yet CR stated that the S9's "overall speed was impressive". Any issues Samsung had with the technology to embed a fingerprint sensor under the display seem to have been ironed out.
Paul George set two franchise records last night and collected 20-points before the break.
As the Thunder tried to claw back, three-pointers from George, Anthony and Jerami Grant all missed, preventing any chance of an improbably last-minute comeback. Game three is on Saturday.
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.
Mitchell shot 4-of-9 in the final frame, scoring 13 points and spearheading the Jazz run that broke the Thunder's back.
Still, Oklahoma City outscored Utah 33-21 in the third quarter, a period of notorious struggles throughout the regular season, when opponents outscored OKC by 4.5 points per 100 possessions during thirds, 24th in the National Basketball Association.

It led to the rebel group that controlled Douma agreeing to surrender control of the town to the Syrian government . The administration is "going down a unsafe path" with regards to Syria , he said, without offering details.
"The entire game we could have executed better", Donovan said. "Things that we can correct, things that we need to correct, things that we will correct on the next game".
Brewer, who said his sprained right knee was about "80 percent" in Game 1, participated in contact Tuesday.
"Just keep doing what we're doing", said Jonas Jerebko, who had 10 points off the bench for the Jazz.
"I don't know", Anthony said.
