And game two of the Oklahoma City Thunder's first-round series against the Utah Jazz didn't disappoint in that sense.
During the fourth quarter is when Mitchell took over to help the Jazz steal the road win before returning home to Vivint Arena for Game 3 on Saturday at 8 p.m.
While both George and Mitchell are officially listed as questionable, George with a hip contusion and Mitchell with a left foot contusion, there's little doubt they will both play even after they were both limited in practice Tuesday.
"I think our main guys got pretty good looks, and I thought we moved the ball to the open man", Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan said, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Oklahoma City made just 6 of 27 field-goal attempts in the fourth quarter to finish at 40 percent. The game was defensive and played in Utah's style. "Things that we can correct, things that we need to correct, things that we will correct on the next game". He finished with nine points and seven rebounds.
Jerami Grant (13 points) and Corey Brewer (11) also scored in double digits for the Thunder. Utah had nine offensive rebounds in the first half, six of those by Favors.
"I just stubbed my toe", Mitchell said. The trio combined to score only two points on 0-for-16 shooting in the fourth quarter. He was being more judicious about when to shoot and was looking to set up teammates.
