Game 6 about to get underway
Key things to watch
1) Keep the Thunder out of the fastbreak and keep them off offensive glass
2) Jazz need to hit shots early regain momentum
3) Corner three looks are a good sign of ball movement
12-0 run by the Thunder - Grant with a three. Jazz are going one on one on switches with Adams but doing it with guys that aren't able to finish the play and it is stifling the offense - Thunder lead it 20-11 3:06 left in 1st quarter
Ricky Rubio has gone to the locker-room. No word yet on what the issue is. However, he battled the issue with his hamstring late in the season.
Ricky Rubio out tonight with left hamstring soreness
23-22 with 8:17 left in 2nd quarter. Alec Burks getting run with Rubio out and has scored 6 points driving to the basket. Jazz not hitting the three 2 for 10. Thunder have two points since 2:07 of 1st quarter
Jazz have no offensive rhythm at all. No Rubio is having a significant impact but also the Thunder are switching on the perimeter and then seem to be rotating on the back side so if you drive you run into a collection of bodies.
Jazz season-low points in the 1st half is 48 points in game 1 of the series. Have just 26 with 4:03 left in the 2nd quarter.
Billy Donovan has done a lot of really good things. Playing Carmelo at the 5 so he can get some minutes. Have become a heavy high pick and roll team from the top. Plus all the defensive switching has taken away Jazz high % shots
Tied at 41 at the half - Jazz really struggled all half but the defense kept them in the game and it feels remarkable that they are tied. Two huge Joe Ingles threes late in the game
Offensive and Defensive rating in this game are 86. Tied at 41.
Donovan Mitchell erupts 10 points in the opening 2:30 of the quarter. Jazz have their largest lead of the game 51-46 - Donovan has scored the 15th most amount points of any rookie in his first 5 playoff games now
Donovan Mitchell is now 11th all-time rookie scorer in their first 6 playoff games
Mitchell with 15 points in 5:28 to give the Jazz their largest lead of 10 and they 62-52
Donovan Mitchell 22 points in the 3rd quarter is the most by a Utah Jazz player ever in a quarter. Westrbook had 17 in the quarter including the last 13 for the Thunder. Jazz lead it 79-70 with 12 minutes to play
Grant's three were the first non Russell Westbrook points since 5:15 in the 3rd quarter. We have 5:55 left and the Jazz lead it 86-78. Here we go ....
:24 seconds to Jazz by 3 - Thunder ball
Paul George is now 1 for 28 from 3 in his career in the final 24 seconds of a game within 3 points
