Thunder journal: Grant, Adams can pass when OKC faces the double

Thunder journal: Grant, Adams can pass when OKC faces the double

Ingles was disappointing by his standards, putting up 13 points, two rebounds, and an assist in his 31 minutes; with a smothering George making life hard for him.

Steven Adams, who battled foul trouble all game, finished with just nine points on four of five shooting.

Mitchell, who averaged 20.5 points during the regular season, had 27 points and 10 rebounds in Utah's opening defeat. Paul George added 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Favors was imposing, posting career playoff highs of 20 points and 16 rebounds and making it hard to picture this team without him as he enters free agency this summer. The most by a guard in National Basketball Association history through his first two playoff games.

Playoff P failed to show up in this one, as George cooled off tremendously after a nuclear Game 1. "Donovan, obviously, his aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there and the combination of those two things".

Saturday, Paul George was asked about the different levels of intensity that ramp up during the postseason, and he replied with a sly smile saying "Oh, Yall aint met playoff P yet, huh?" and he was right. "They punched us back tonight, and now, we've got to go on the road and get a win at their place, and that's the mindset".

And game two of the Oklahoma City Thunder's first-round series against the Utah Jazz didn't disappoint in that sense. Harden made 7 of 12 3-pointers, but Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon and Paul combined to make just 3 of their 22 tries.

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. Would the home team ever win consecutive games, as never happened in the Jazz-Clippers series?

Making matters worse, he missed two three-pointers in the final minute that would have given OKC a fighting chance. He finished second to Mitchell in terms of shot attempts in Game 1 but went just 5-of-18 from the field.

"The biggest thing for us, Derrick Favors played his ass off", Mitchell said after the game.

The Celtics led by as many as 20 in the fourth quarter. Coming in, everyone in the Thunder locker room knew this Jazz team was serious, and expected adversity in the series. "Now it's our turn to make some adjustments and figure out what we're going to do", Anthony said.
