Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder survived a scare in game five. The Thunder trailed by 25 points, but had a never say die type of mentality. Especially Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook shot 17 of 39 from the floor and had 45 points (as mentioned earlier).
Paul George shot the ball 26 times in the win, but everyone else on the team shot no more than six times. Carmelo Anthony, was virtually frozen out of the game. He was shot 2 of 6 from the floor, and only had six points.
In game six, the Thunder must be able start the game better than thay did in game five.
If Utah is able to get out to a big lead at home, look for the Thunder to be in trouble.
They must also play better defense.
At one point in the game, the Thunder had outscored Utah 68-22.
The Utah Jazz have to finish what they started. They must close out the Thunder in game six at Viviant Smart Home Arena. The last game, Utah jumped out to a big lead, but did not go for the kill when they had the chance.
Tonight, the Jazz are going to have the home fans backing them. Look for the Jazz to clamp down defensively in this game.
Donovan Mitchell was 9 of 22 from the floor and finished the game with 23 points. He must play better at home in game six. If not, the Jazz could be in for a close game. Rudy Gobert was not his full effective self.
He scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He is the longest player on the court. 11 and 10 is not going to cut in in game six.

The Jazz had game five in the bag, but started looking too far ahead. Look for the Jazz to start fast, and play better second half defense at home. Donovan Mitchell will have 25 points or better, and Rudy Gobert will show up at home.
