Derrick Favors went beast mode and Donovan Mitchell put them to bed

NBA: Playoffs-Utah Jazz at Oklahoma City Thunder Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz tied the series against the Oklahoma City Thunder with huge performances from multiple players on the team.

Derrick Favors was an absolute beast with 16 rebounds and 20 points. The Thunder had no answer for him and he kept the Jazz alive at multiple points in the game.

Rudy Gobert’s defense showed up again. He fouled Steven Adams out of the game and hit big free throws when it mattered most. His rim protection was vital to slowing down Russell Westbrook and he’s possibly the only player that can block a Paul George three to close a game. DPOY much?

Ricky Rubio hit BIG shots for the Jazz. Who would have guessed that Rubio would become a knock down three point shooter before the season started?

Finally, Donovan Mitchell closed this one out. He takes over games, playoff games. Here’s your friendly remdinder he’s a rookie. It’s only a matter of time before he becomes one of the most dominant players in the NBA.
