Utah Jazz slicing up the Oklahoma City Thunder defense off to a 16 to 4 start. Mitchell with an amazing start. 9 points. Jazz want Thunder late in the shot clock have them late on 5 of first 7 possessions

Pace has been very fast
Thunder offensive rating is 104.5
Jazz offensive rating is 92.9

Jazz only turning it over on 10% of possessions but not making shot. 4 of 14 from 3.

Joe Ingles has no assists and no rebounds. That has not happened all season in the first half of a game

Two points of view
Optimist – Thunder stars have been great and Jazz are just 4 of 14 from three and down 6.

Pessimist: Their stars are great and the playoffs are a stars time.

Playoff P is fabulous tonight. Paul George has 26 points of 9 of 14 from the field. Paul George is a real problem for the Jazz in this series. Thunder lead it 62-53 with 8:50 left in the 3rd quarter

Last time someone showed something as much Thunder showed the replay on Rubio is Buckwheat has been shot on SNL
The foul on Gobert did not exist on the replay I saw and it was his 4th and he goes to the bench with Jazz down 68-61

This doesn’t feel good. Jazz trail 70-61 and feels like a lot more or that it is about to be a lot more. Whistle not going there way. No rhythm to the offense. Westbrook usually checks out right now. Jazz need to go on run.

Paul George is unreal. 31 points on 17 shots. 7 of 10 from three. Donovan Mitchell has been great 23 points and 10 rebounds. However, Mitchell in serious pain and going to the locker-room

DONOVAN MITCHELL IS GOING TO THE LOCKER-ROOM. WAS IN MAJOR PAIN IN HIS FOOT

Donovan Mitchell is on his way to the Thunder locker-room to get x-rays of his foot acccording to @tonyparkszone

Paul George is unstoppable so Jazz have broken out of their normal defense and are doubling the ball. George unselfishly has moved the ball out of the double each time and Abrines has two three pointers. Thunder up 92-80 with 8:23. Paul George has been amazing in all facets

Donovan Mitchell now getting ready to check back in the game

Donovan Mitchell becomes the 12th rookie in NBA history to score 27 points in his first playoff game. Brandon Jennings in 2010 had 34 and Derrick Rose has 36 in 2009

Russell Westbrook does not care about his numbers don’t watch him ask him

Thunder have been great tonight. If this is playoff Thunder look out. Paul George brilliant. Carmelo not a negative. Westbrook has made enough shots and they are 14 of 28 from three. They are as good as they can be right now

Thunder win Game 1 116-108 — Paul George was fabulous 36 points on 13 of 20 shooting. Westbrook had 29 points on 10 of 25 (think the Jazz would be ok with that on most nights) Thunder 14 of 29 from three
