Ingles drained a career-best seven 3-pointers on his way to a career-high 27 points and Mitchell chipped in with 17 points and 11 assists for the winners. For Mitchell, it was the first playoff game where he has scored fewer than 20 points and didn’t lead his team in scoring.
For the Rockets, James Harden had 32 points and 11 assists and Chris Paul had 23 points, but it wasn’t enough to help Houston avoid falling to the Jazz for the first time in six meetings.
Game 3 of the best-of-seven series will be on Friday night in Utah. Game 4 is Sunday.
Tonight, the Cavs will take on the Raptors in Toronto and the 76ers will take on the Celtics in Boston. Cleveland and Boston are ahead in their respective series 1-0.
