2018 NBA Playoffs: Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets Game 2, Live Scores & Updates - Western Conf. Semis

FULL-TIME: Utah Jazz win 116-108, Series is tied 1-1

...
An underrated part of this game. Donovan Mitchell, filling in for Ricky Rubio as the team's point guard, put a double-double of 17 points and 11 assists. As the tweet below suggests, Ingles stepped up as well but it was the Jazz's strategy to funnel all the Rockets' drive into their DPOY Rudy Gobert that seemed to be the biggest difference maker.

The resilient Jazz have shown their fight again, stealing a game from the best team in the league. Although, they are heading home for Games 3 & 4, it won't be easy to win both at home as the Rockets were the best road team during the regular season.

Game 3 is scheduled for Friday night at 10:30 PM ET. Do join us then as Sportskeeda continues to extensively cover the 2018 NBA Playoffs. This is Yash Matange signing off. Cheers!
