And Mitchell's 28-point game will have a place in Jazz playoff lore, after he was questionable with a toe injury.

If they are to do so, though, it will be vital that they make some adjustments as well as have some key aspects go in their favor, beginning first and foremost with shutting down Oklahoma City's hero in Game 1 - Paul George.
