Paul George Questionable For Game 2 vs. Jazz


The basket put the Thunder ahead 71-67 and came in the early stages of a 19-0 run that the club used to carry a five-point lead into the game's final quarter.

George still scored 24 of his game-high 36 points after the hard fall.

The rest of their Big 3 came through, with Russell Westbrook (29 points, 13 rebounds, 8 assists) and Carmelo Anthony (15 points, 7 boards, 3 steals, 2 blocks) both coming up big.

George picked up the injury in the second quarter Sunday on a drive against Utah center Rudy Gobert and was subbed out 16 seconds later. Neither George nor Corey Brewer was listed on the Thunder's injury list as of Tuesday evening, a positive sign for each playing being ready for Game 2.

However, when left open and able to shoot in rhythm, Rubio was hitting, he was 5-of-8 from three on his way to 22 points and nine assists. Mitchell even missed an uncontested dunk in there.

Houston fell behind early, but went on top for good with a 37-point second quarter, powered by four 3-pointers from Green, and the Wolves didn't threaten again. Mitchell is their leading scorer by a significant margin, and they will face a dramatic drop-off without him.

He even helped out on one of Anthony's misses, contesting well on the 3-pointer after a dribble-handoff in transition by Westbrook.
