Donovan Mitchell Hypes Dunk vs. Rockets with 'Chappelle's Show' Tribute

Houston Rockets MVP frontrunner James Harden has a game as silky smooth as any star in the National Basketball Association, but not everyone loves his skillset and what he brings to the table.

"It's in our character to withstand that run". Mitchell struggled to find his shot as he went just 6-of-21 on the night, finishing with 17 points. Harden didn't take kindly to that comment and he let the heckler know about it.

Utah won't shoot as well over the next several games, and Joe Ingles isn't likely to match the career-high 27 points he put up in Game 2.

The MVP favorite still put up 32 points, 11 assists and six rebounds to lead the Rockets. The Rockets were outplayed badly early in the contest before rallying in the middle two quarters to take the lead.

Mitchell cleverly used the only appropriate caption for this photo from Eric Christian Smith of The Associated Press - "Game..." He much prefers to pull-up from the 3-point line or finish at the basket, both of which are harder for him to do when Exum and Gobert are directly involved in pick-and-rolls.

First of all, although it's hard to criticize Donovan Mitchell after he made critical play after critical play, including the sensational dunk found below, and also broke John Stockton's Jazz rookie single-game assist record with 11 dimes on the night, this was far from Spida's best game. "We've just got to come out ready to play". The Rockets responded with a 14-6 run to whittle Utah's lead from 17 down to nine at halftime. Ingles finished the game with 27 points while hitting 7-9 three point attempts. Houston built a five-point lead and had the momentum, but a three by Mitchell and driving layup by Burks tied the game with just under four minutes left in the third quarter. The dunk increased the Jazz's lead to 100-94. If the Jazz continue to knock down shots, then they have a great chance of beating the Rockets again. After a bucket by Harden, Ingles drilled a corner three. "Here in Utah, man, a lot of disrespectful, vulgar things are said to the players here with these fans".

"Every time Joe has needed to step up his game, he has been able to", Snyder said. A turnover by Paul-forced by Gobert's defense on the perimeter-iced the victory for Utah.

Utah shot splendidly throughout and finished 15 for 32 from behind the arc while posting a 51.2 percentage from the floor overall.

The Rockets simply didn't have an answer for Exum's defense in Game 2.

In the second half, the narrative was switched, as Houston came out of the break, shooting lights out, garnering multiple steals in the process and tying the game. The Houston Rockets are -3.5 over the Jazz in game 3.
