Bericht Womens Saquon Barkley Jersey
SALT LAKE CITY — Donovan Mitchell is doing everything he can to bolster his case to win Rookie of the Year honors during the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Mitchell took over the fourth quarter to help the Utah Jazz claim a 102-95 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday and even the series at 1-1. He scored 13 of his team-high 28 points in the fourth quarter. It helped the Jazz erase a double-digit third-quarter deficit and gave them room to pull away late.

“The thing about Donovan’s game is he just continued to attack http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/davante-adams-jersey ,” Utah coach Quin Snyder said after the game. “I thought when he really got aggressive going to the rim, some other things opened up.”

Stopping the first-year guard on late game possessions will obviously top the Thunder’s agenda when the series returns to Salt Lake City for Game 3 on Saturday night. Executing such a defensive plan will be easier said than done.

Mitchell is averaging 27.5 points through the first two games in the series. He has scored 55 points in his first two playoff games, which is the most by a guard in NBA history.

His efforts have been complemented by aggressive play from Derrick Favors around the basket. Favors is averaging 13.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in the postseason and posted career playoff highs in points (20) and rebounds (16) in Game 2 against the Thunder.

At one point, he had snared eight offensive rebounds through 2 1/2 quarters. Oklahoma City had only six offensive rebounds as a team through the same stretch.

“It definitely helped me for the rest of the game, just trying to find ways to be aggressive and make an impact,” Favors said.

The Thunder are looking to regain an edge in Game 3 after getting off to another slow start and enduring an even worse finish in Game 2. Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George combined for two points on 0-of-14 shooting in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma City managed just 16 points in the fourth quarter.

It allowed Mitchell to go on a tear and erase a 77-67 third-quarter lead built behind a 19-0 run.

“We just didn’t make shots in that fourth quarter,” Anthony said. “We worked so hard in the third quarter to get the lead back and played so well to get back and go up (10) in that third quarter. Fourth quarter http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/tarik-cohen-jersey , we just didn’t shoot the ball well.”

It didn’t help that Steven Adams was limited by foul trouble. He picked up two early fouls in the first half, played just 22 minutes, and eventually fouled out with 2:48 left.

With Adams out for large stretches, Favors and Gobert were able to do plenty of damage around the basket. He could not find a way to reverse momentum when he was out there.

“I don’t think Steven was ever able to get into a flow or rhythm for himself because he was battling foul trouble,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

Utah and Oklahoma City split two games in Salt Lake City in the regular season. The Jazz won the first meeting 96-87 on Oct. 21 behind 19 points from Joe Ingles and 16 points and 13 rebounds from Rudy Gobert. The Thunder took the second game 103-89 on Dec. 23 behind 27 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists from Westbrook.

Although the White Sox head into the All-Star break with nearly twice as many losses as wins, the players remain optimistic.

Sunday certainly provided a reason for hope.

Daniel Palka and Yoan Moncada homered, and Lucas Giolito tossed two-hit ball into the seventh inning Darrell Green Jersey , lifting Chicago to a 10-1 victory over the struggling Kansas City Royals.

Moncada was 3 for 3 with a walk and three runs scored a day after leaving a game with a bruised right knee. Palka also had three hits and two RBIs while Tim Anderson and Kevan Smith each hit a two-run double as Chicago pounded out 13 hits.

The rebuilding White Sox had dropped seven of nine before Sunday and are 33-62 overall.

”It wasn’t a very good first half in wins and losses, but I think that’s part of the process,” Moncada said. ”We’re all trying to do our best. We improved during the first half, and I think in the second half we’ll be much better.”

Adalberto Mondesi homered leading off the eighth for the Royals, who are 2-11 in July.

”Losing (stinks), and we’ve lost a lot,” second baseman Whit Merrifield said. ”It hasn’t been fun as far as all that goes. We got four days off. Hopefully, we can regroup and everyone can kind of step back and reset.”

Kansas City decided to go with a bullpen day instead of a regular starting pitcher. The relievers were no match for Giolito (6-8). The right-hander allowed just two hits in 6 1/3 innings Quinton Dunbar Jersey , striking out six and walking three.

”Today was one of those days where we put it all together,” Giolito said. ”I’m looking forward to more of those.”

After Giolito worked out of his only jam in the top of the first with an assist from the defense – Jorge Bonifacio was thrown out trying to score from second on a single to left with one out – Palka’s two-run blast off starter Burch Smith (0-1) gave the White Sox a 2-0 lead.

”I’m not really feeling my best in the first and then an unreal play,” Giolito said of the play at the plate. ”It gets me fired up. It’s like, `Alright, no one’s crossing the plate this inning.”’

The lead grew to 4-0 in the third as Jose Abreu scored on a wild pitch and Leury Garcia followed with an RBI single against left-hander Brian Flynn. Chicago then broke the game open with a five-run fifth against left-hander Enny Romero. Moncada, who was hit in the knee by a pick-off throw on Saturday, started things with a lead-off homer. It was his 12th of the season and first right-handed. Anderson and Smith each had a two-run double to make it 9-0.

Moncada doubled and scored in the sixth to make 10-0 before Mondesi’s homer off Jeanmar Gomez broke the shutout.

”It was one of those days,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. ”We didn’t pitch good.”

TAKING A DIVE

When Moncada was hit in the knee on Saturday http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/john-simon-jersey , he appeared to be in great pain and significantly injured. After discovering he was fine on Sunday, his teammates taped the name ”NEYMAR” above his locker.

”He’s known to be a player who likes to act when people touch him or he gets kicked,” Moncada said of the Brazilian soccer star through a translator. ”They were messing with me.”

START ME UP

Salvador Perez, the Royals’ lone All-Star, will replace injured Wilson Ramos as the AL’s starting catcher in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox: RHP Nate Jones (strained forearm muscle) will travel to Triple-A Charlotte during the All-Star break and throw live batting practice on Tuesday.

UP NEXT

Royals: LHP Danny Duffy (4-8, 4.59 ERA) will pitch the opener of a three-game series with Minnesota on Friday night.

White Sox: RHP James Shields (4-10, 4.43 ERA) takes the mound Friday night for the start of a three-game series at Seattle.
