The Oklahoma City Thunder better find a way to turn things around. Utah mopped the court with Oklahoma City in game three. Things were interesting in the first half, and midway through the third quarter, but Utah was able to pull away with a blowout home win over the Thunder, 115-102.
In game three, the Thunder shot 47.2 percent from the floor and 50 percent from three point land in the 13 point loss.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder are in need of a big win. In game three, the Thunder played well, the first 80 percent of the game, then crumbled terribly under pressure. If Oklahoma City has any chance to advance, they must win this game.
Game four is going to be the biggest test of the year for the Thunder.
If Oklahoma City is unable to move the ball, and play a lot of one on one, the Thunder will get trounced again. Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, have also got to step up.
George had 23 points and Anthony had 14 points in game three.
They both were productive shooting the ball, but unable be dominant enough to will Oklahoma City to a win. The Thunder must play better defense on the road in this matchup.
The Utah Jazz are playing well right now. The team looked bad in game one in Oklahoma City, but has since won two in a row against the Thunder. Utah shot 52.5 percent from the floor and 38.2 percent from three point land in the win in game three.
If the Jazz can play balanced like they have been, this game will be another win at home.
Utah did allow the Thunder to shoot over 50 percent from the floor in game three, but were able to withstand the hot shooting, and still win by 13 points.
Donovan Mitchell is going to have to be light’s out again if the Jazz are to get the home win. Rudy Gobert has been a force in the paint as well for the Jazz this postseason.
