Russell Westbrook and Paul George Address 'Cotton-Picking' Comments by OKC Announcer

Utah Jazz – Oklahoma City Thunder: Full first-round schedule

If the New Orleans Pelicans can travel to favored Portland and get a Game 1 victory, and if the Indiana Pacers can win by 18 points in the home gym of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, then it certainly was within the realm of possibility that a surging Utah Jazz team would be a threat on Sunday at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Thunder guard Andre Roberson and Jazz guard Thabo Sefolosha are both out for the season. Mitchell had an X-ray, and doctors cleared him to return to the game. That despite the fact George left the game in the fourth quarter dealing with a hip contusion. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 27 points and 10 rebounds, Rudy Gobert added 14 points while Joe Ingles and Ricky Rubio each scored 13 points. The 21-year old shooting guard had a spectacular rookie season, averaging 20.5 points on 43.7% shooting.

George set an Oklahoma City playoff record with eight 3-pointers, blowing past the previous record of five. He also managed seven rebounds and a steal. The veteran center was outstanding in six playoff games last season, posting 11.6 points and 9.6 rebounds. "As long as he stays aggressive, miss or make, we're a better team". Utah is averaging 104.1 points, ranking them 19th in the National Basketball Association.

In the second half, when Gobert got into foul trouble, the Thunder were able to maintain their lead, and the fear of going to the rim against the Jazz defense was gone.

Davis made the comments during the second quarter of the Thunder's season-closing win over the Grizzlies, when he referred to Russell Westbrook as "out of his cotton pickin' mind". The Thunder converted on 48.2% of their field goals which included a 14 for 29 performance from three-point range. OKC has Russell Westbrook - the only player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double twice - and a big edge in playoff experience.

A spokesman for the team said that Davis has received a one-game suspension, for Sunday's Game 1 playoff game in Oklahoma City. "So we just kept sticking with it, and hopefully, he doesn't go 8 for 11 the rest of the series". During the regular season, he ranked third in the National Basketball Association in blocked shots.
