Mitchell suffered a toe injury in the fourth quarter of the Jazz's 116-108 loss in game one on Sunday. Neither bench did much in this game as the Jazz bench produced 16 points while the Thunder were at 21.
"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".
"I think today I did my job looking for my teammates", Rubio said.
"I fell on my left side and from there it just got a little sore on me", George said. "I thought we even had times where we rolled to the basket and we had a presence at the basket". He played just 22 minutes, scoring nine points and reeling in seven rebounds. 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.
In Game 2, the Jazz defense was more settled and like itself than the opener, and that forced more isolation ball out of Oklahoma City - they had eight assists and nine turnovers in the first half.

Following a back-and-forth first half that ended with the Jazz up 53-46, the Thunder went streaking in the third quarter. "That's what we did". Could George replicate his 8-of-11 shooting from 3-point range?
As for the Thunder, Abrines and Brewer will need to take on more shots in George's absence.
As a sellout crowd of 18,203 fans stood to their feet in white Oklahoma City Thunder T-shirts at Chesapeake Energy Arena, a 21-year-old held his composure in a tough environment.
The Thunder rattled off 19 consecutive points during the third quarter to turn a 67-58 deficit into a 10-point advantage. Jonas Jerebko scored 10 points in 12:46 as a reserve. "Just be big on the boards, keep getting to the hole, kick out for threes and just knock down the shots". We're never going to put a player's health at risk in any way.
"Well, some of them were good shots, some of them not", Rubio told the Salt Lake Tribune.
On Wednesday, the Utah Jazz did what the Minnesota Timberwolves could not - steal a road playoff game - and Donovan Mitchell certainly took note. "Donovan, obviously, his aggressiveness on the offensive end fueled us there and the combination of those two things".
