The Utah Jazz tied the series against the Oklahoma City Thunder with huge performances from multiple players on the team.
Derrick Favors was an absolute beast with 16 rebounds and 20 points. The Thunder had no answer for him and he kept the Jazz alive a multiple points in the game.
Rudy Gobert’s defense showed up again. He fouled Steven Adams out of the game and hit big free throws that closed out the Thunder. Rudy’s 13 points and 15 rebounds were vital and his rim protection is what makes the Jazz roll.
Ricky Rubio his BIG shots for the Jazz. Who would have guessed that Rubio would become a knock down three point shooter before the season started.
Finally, Donovan Mitchell closed this one out. He takes over games, playoff games. He’s a rookie. It’s only a matter of time before he becomes one of the most dominant players in the NBA. Tonight he carried the offense when it stalled. When the Thunder made runs, Donovan pulled them back in it. When the Thunder stalled, Donovan would stretch the Jazz lead. What did Jazz fans do to deserve Donovan Mitchell!?
