National Basketball Association roundup: George, Mitchell uncertain for Game 2 of Thunder-Jazz

Wednesday night the Thunder and Jazz meet again in bricktown with OKC looking to approve upon their 1-0 series lead.

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

Mitchell, who averaged 20.5 points during the regular season, had 27 points and 10 rebounds in Utah's opening defeat.

"There was just a point where I stopped being aggressive, "Mitchell said, per ESPN's Royce Young".

"I think our main guys got pretty good looks, and I thought we moved the ball to the open man", Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan said, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. Mitchell finished 0 for 7 from 3-point range, but think about this: The rookie outscored the Westbrook-George-Anthony trio 13-2 in the fourth quarter. We're never going to put a player's health at risk in any way.

Jaylen Brown had a playoff career-high 30 points and the Boston Celtics pulled away into second half to earn a 120-106 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night. Rubio's 3-pointer made it 85-80 with 8:47 remaining before the Thunder recovered to tie it at 87 on Steven Adams' inside basket with 6:54 left.

"The entire game we could have executed better", Donovan said. Rubio struggled with his shot inside the arc (1-of-8) but he hit the big buckets and kept the floor spaced when asked. he had seven fourth-quarter points.

However, Indiana was six of 22 on three-point attempts while Cleveland was 11 of 28. George's absence would also be a huge blow, but at least they have two other stars in Westbrook and Anthony who can step up and take on a bigger load on offense.

Utah sagged off the Thunder's non-shooters throughout crunch time, the typical treatment for those kinds of players during the playoffs. "We just didn't score enough points". "We just didn't make shots in that fourth quarter".

"There's things that we can correct, things that we have to correct, things that we will correct. Now it's our turn to make some adjustments and figure out what we're going to do", Anthony said. We threw the first punch, they punched us back tonight and now we have to go on the road and get a win at their place.
