Donovan Mitchell will play in Game 2 after MRI comes back negative

Paul George is up for the challenge of guarding Donovan Mitchell

The Oklahoma City Thunder lead the Utah Jazz 54-48 at halftime of the teams' Game 1 matchup of the NBA Playoffs.

He finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds in Oklahoma City's 116-108 victory. "So I'm excited to get this thing going".

"I feel fine", he said. Our job is to make sure we find him, make it easy for him. On Tuesday, the Utah Jazz rookie's pregame attire included a hoodie with the word "Rookie" and its literal definition - set off by a playful back-and-forth with fellow first-year player Ben Simmons.

Mitchell suffered a foot injury in the first half of Game 1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday when Corey Brewer stepped on his left foot.

The rest of the series may depend on how effective Mitchell can be.

"The doctors cleared him, so I put him back in the game, but when I saw him, it looked to me that he was feeling it a little bit and just wanted to make sure, so I took him out and just confirmed it", Snyder said. He hit a deep two-pointer to close the quarter and give the Thunder an 81-72 lead. In addition, Rudy Gobert scored 14 points and seven rebounds, while Joe Ingles and Jae Crowder each added 13 for the Jazz.
