Thunder Blitzed in SLC - OKC 102, UTA 115

Utah also outrebounded the Thunder 48-33 and seemed much quicker to the loose balls in the midst of a charged atmosphere.

A flurry of second chance opportunities resulted in 9-rebound advantage for the Jazz in the quarter, and Ricky Rubio's shot making off the dribble was a game-changer, as he racked up 15 points in the 2nd period alone. Rudy Gobert is a handful inside, but the Utah guards are dictating this series.

Donovan Mitchell added 22 points for Utah, which took a 2-1 lead in its first-round series with Oklahoma City. While Westbrook and George are considered to be two of the best two dozen or so players on the planet, neither was among the two best guards on the court Saturday night. The Jazz are comfortable letting the Thunder take contested jump shots - a strategy that really pays off when OKC isn't knocking those shots down. Rubio notched just the third triple-double in Jazz postseason history joining Willie Green in 1984 and John Stockton in 1991. After looking out of sorts through two games, Ingles exploded for 21 points and hit five 3-pointers.

Of course, Rubio wasn't the only hero for the Jazz in Game 3.

The developer and manufacturer of the engine is CFM International, which is owned by General Electric and Safran Aircraft Engines. The engine that blew apart on Tuesday's Southwest flight would have been affected, since the company said it had 40,000 cycles.

Paul George scored 23 points and Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook and Raymond Felton each had 14 for the Thunder.

The Jazz played their way into this position Saturday by recovering from an 11-point deficit in the second quarter as they exploited Thunder center Steven Adams' foul trouble. Adams went to the bench with his third foul. Carlos Boozer had the last triple-double for the Jazz in 2008, but it came in the regular season. After only 16 total points and three assists in Oklahoma City, Ingles provided the offensive firepower down the stretch. "We play a fun style", he said, "and I think fans enjoy it".

In last April's case, the Jazz lost Game 3 to the Clippers after splitting the first two games in Los Angeles. "Joe just threw himself into the defensive end as well". The court had the same gradation everywhere, and while you can appreciate going all out, the way the colors were done around the court looked a little goofy in the end zone areas, which were mostly purple. Some of his eight turnovers happened when he was headed to the rim with Gobert looming. "And then the turnovers coupled with maybe settling for some jump shots kind of got them on a run to close out the half".

For all the offensive talent on the roster, this team has been one of the NBA's worst at scoring when the game is slow. "He was feisty then, he's feisty now, that's why I knew he was going to stick". "I just try to make them think. I know that they know", Gobert said.
