Be like Mike? Donovan Mitchell doing better: 2018 NBA Playoffs rewind

Carmelo laughs when he learns about Paul George’s ‘Playoff P’ nickname

Will Utah's star rookie Donovan Mitchell be healthy enough to go?

The Thunder had mostly muted efforts from their big three as Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony each scored 19 or less. It spurred that aforementioned domination to turn the deficit into a 10-point lead, thanks to buckets from Westbrook, George and Anthony.

However, Indiana was six of 22 on three-point attempts while Cleveland was 11 of 28. According to LA Sports Hub's Jason Reed, Randle may end up forming a new Big Three in Utah next season with Rookie of the Year candidate Donovan Mitchell and last season's National Basketball Association blocks leader Rudy Gobert.

In between the first two games of the series, the 27-year-old forward was handled with care. 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.

This matchup will now switch to Salt Lake City for game three on Saturday night in front of what will be a boisterous crowd at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Mitchell suffered a toe injury in the fourth quarter of the Jazz's 116-108 loss in game one on Sunday.

George missed 15 of his 21 field goals for the game. "Donovan, obviously, his aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there and the combination of those two things".

Mitchell produced an impressive display as he inspired Utah to a vital game two win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road on Wednesday night. Overall, the trio scored a total of 54 points with no one among them getting 20 markers. "They've got guys like Corey Brewer, Paul George, who can attack the basket but at the same time we've got to get on Steven Adams". Melo outplayed him in Game 1 as Favors finished with a team-worst +/- rating of -12. Mitchell said he was fine, but the team did not say he was good to go until just minutes before Game 2.

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.

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

"They all need each other", Snyder said, "and they all know that".

The Celtics led by as many as 20 in the fourth quarter.
