Joe Ingles embraces Paul George feud, discusses role in Jazz-Thunder series

SUNDAY'S OTHER NBA PLAYOFF GAMES Paul George silences critics with monstrous performance

Russell Westbrook had 29 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists and Anthony added 15 points for the Thunder, who will host Game 2 on Wednesday. Paul George's primary defender in this series, it would have been easy for Ingles to lose all confidence after George went off in Game 1 and scored 36 points.

Westbrook had just 19 points and Anthony 17 points.

Steven Adams, who battled foul trouble all game, finished with just nine points on four of five shooting. Ricky Rubio had 22 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in the first playoff win of his seven-year career.

With 55 points over the two games against the Thunder, Mitchell topped a record held by Michael Jordan for the most points by a guard in his initial two playoff contests, per ESPN.

The Timberwolves led by as many as nine early and the game was tied with about eight minutes left in the second quarter before Houston scored 16 straight points, highlighted by three three-pointers from Green, to take a 46-30 lead with about 4½ minutes left in the first half.

So this looks like a long series in the making, with Game 3 booked Saturday at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

SUNDAY'S OTHER NBA PLAYOFF GAMES

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, obviously, his aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there". "We just didn't score enough points".

While both George and Mitchell are officially listed as questionable, George with a hip contusion and Mitchell with a left foot contusion, there's little doubt they will both play even after they were both limited in practice Tuesday.

But the group conventionally referred to as "The Big Three" combined to shoot 0 of 14 during the fourth quarter of OKC's 102-95, Game 2 loss to the Jazz, when Utah's defenders didn't worry about the non-shooters that complemented the Thunder's three biggest names.

In this game of runs, the Jazz had withstood the Thunder's best punch, and after staggering for five scoreless minutes, regrouped and swung back.

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.

The Thunder rattled off 19 consecutive points during the third quarter to turn a 67-58 deficit into a 10-point advantage. Coming in, everyone in the Thunder locker room knew this Jazz team was serious, and expected adversity in the series. We believe Love can put all of these pieces together tonight and have himself a monster game. "We just didn't make shots in that fourth quarter".
