Paul George drops 36 with 8 triples in Thunder’s Game 1 win

Apr 24, 2018

Adds details. With AP Photos. The big three of Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony combined for 80 points in game one, and I believe they will be too much for the Jazz to handle again in this one, plus they also have the potent Steven Adams to deal with. He grabbed No. 16 early in the third quarter and received a standing ovation in the moment. He finished with just six points, but had a career-high 20 rebounds and 19 assists.

It is unclear if Davis will address his comments in a future broadcast, but Mahoney said that decision is left up to him.

Here are the Thunder vs Jazz game details including the live stream and more.

“I’m still sore”, Brewer said, “but if I can walk, I’m going to play”. He set up Paul George, who busted out of a slump with 40 points on 13 of 20 shooting, including an 8 of 14 performance from 3-point land.

“I think it is what I expected, at least for myself”, Mitchell said, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. “It paid off tonight”. Effectively, the game was over, but the Thunder learned a quick and vital lesson.

Oklahoma City has a history of clashing with streaking opponents in the playoffs. The over-under for total points scored is 205.

So when the defensive rebound happens organically, and the ball falls into the hands of the Thunder’s star point guard, the team benefits greatly on the attack as a result.

George hit his seventh 3-pointer to push Oklahoma City’s lead to 79-66.

The Thunder tallied a 116-108 home win in game one on Sunday evening. While the players listed may not necessarily play head-to-head the entire series, it will give us a good idea of where both teams stack up. I thought we played phenomenal tonight. Viewers were subjected to those words, and it was insensitive for him to believe they were deserving to be said, to describe the athletic abilities of a black player, no less. It’s like that sometimes. “But we played great defense, and we are proud of that”.

Grizzlies: Marc Gasol (rest), Tyreke Evans (personal reasons), JaMychal Green (knee soreness), Wayne Selden Jr.

Westbrook talked about how “P” being aggressive changes the game for the Thunder, and how his staying that way makes them a better team. Including Alex Abrines who returned after missing the last two games in the concussion protocol. The Thunder posted eight assists in the fourth quarter alone.

Corey Brewer playing for his seventh National Basketball Association team, joined the Thunder in early March and moved into a starting role, but is more of a small forward than guard. He looked sharp in leading the Jazz, going 11-22 from the floor to lead the team with 27 points. Playing through certain things, fighting for rebounds. But these times, who are you?
