The combination of Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic in the 4th and overtime was too much for the Jazz to overcome. Despite a playoff career high from Donovan Mitchell. He was on fire and finished with a playoff career high 57 points on 19-33 shooting. He had 22 points in the 4th and Murray has 20 points himself. It was a great sight too see at the end of the game with those two going at it. Mike Conley did not play. He returned home for the birth of his son.
