"A bit rowdy. Rope-able". He was being more judicious about when to shoot and was looking to set up teammates. When he returned to the court after the game, he said the advice he gave Zielinski gave was between him and the official.

"I'll take all the shots that I get within the flow of our offence - if that's 25 or 2", a typically relaxed Ingles said.

Later he does well to jump out and contest Westbrook's jumper after navigating one of Steven Adams' notorious screens.

But for Adams, it was an outing to forget as he was hampered by early foul trouble, before fouling out in the vital stages of the fourth quarter.

Warriors 116, Spurs 101: Kevin Durant sparked a decisive third-quarter run on the way to 32 points, Klay Thompson added 31 points and five assists in another superb playoff performance and Golden State rallied in the second half to beat visiting San Antonio for a 2-0 lead in their first-round series. "That's what we came here to do was to split them, and now we're going home back to Salt Lake". The latest win required more toughness and determination, after everything fell apart for them during OKC's 19-0 run in the third period. "Obviously, you're going to get emotional and what not, but it's not ill". It had been a balanced, not terribly efficient night to begin with, as the Thunder attempted 19 non-paint two's and shot just 40 percent for the game. Great atmosphere and getting amongst it.

"So I think for me, [it's] just [about] making the right reads - knowing when he's in there, and to catch and shoot it, or knowing when I can go by him".

It was a game of runs on Wednesday night in Oklahoma City, as the Thunder looked to take a 2-0 lead in its best-of-7 series with the Jazz. Utah's Derrick Favors was the beneficiary in Game 2. Once again, the Jazz were led by stellar rookie Donovan Mitchell, who poured in 28 points along with six rebounds, two assists and a steal. The Thunder held off a surge in the final minute. F Jerami Grant scored 13 points. Anthony scored 17 points on 6 of 18 shooting and missed all four of his fourth-quarter attempts, including a couple of questionable 3-pointers over the final two minutes.

Mitchell's status for the game was up in the air after he was suffering from left foot soreness after game one. The Jazz ended up putting together an 18-3 scoring run that spanned the end of the third and start of the fourth quarters, taking a 5-point lead with 8:44 to go.
