The Utah Jazz look to level the series against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Game 2 on Wednesday.

George figures to draw perhaps the most important defensive assignment, taking over for Roberson in guarding Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell.

In a Game 1 that began only minutes after the conclusion of Indiana's blowout conquest of the Cavs, could Utah score a knockdown in this first round of its first-ever postseason meeting with the Thunder? George's eight three pointers were a Thunder record for most three's in a playoff game.

George was incredible in his playoff debut for the Thunder.

"As the playoffs go, the game slows down some, teams are really conscientious of getting back in transition", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

The first-round games are also broadcast locally on AT&T Sports Net.

Now, Roberts has isolated an overlooked angle in Utah-OKC that he says will decide the point-spread victor for this National Basketball Association playoffs game.

This is the first time since mid-January that the Jazz have dropped two straight games.

Abrines, an Olympic teammate of Jazz guard Ricky Rubio for Spain, had been injured last Monday at Miami and missed Wednesday's regular-season finale vs. Memphis due to concussion protocol. "They are going to give me perimeter shots or midrange shots". Our job is to make sure we find him, make it easy for him. Oklahoma City led 54-48 at halftime behind 20 points from George and 14 from Westbrook.

Mitchell had 27 points and 10 rebounds, but he left in the second half with left foot soreness. He made a quick impact, driving to the rim and finishing off glass with his right hand over Steven Adams. The Thunder big man executed a remarkable lob-catch and dunk, and it was followed by an Anthony 3-pointer as the Thunder got its largest lead at 18 points (109-91).

The Utah Jazz were running hot going into the playoffs as they capped off the regular season with seven wins in their last nine games but they will be looking to bounce back after falling to the Thunder in a 116-108 loss in Game 1.
