Mitchell continues to impress for the Jazz

The Utah Jazz had a statement Game 4 on Monday evening as they defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 113-96 at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City.

The Jazz have won three in a row since losing the opening game to the Thunder in Oklahoma City to push their Northwest Division rival to the brink of elimination.

Leading the way for Utah was Donovan Mitchell, as the 21-year shooting guard out of the University of Louisville had a game high 33 points while pulling down seven rebounds and passing out four assists for the contest.

Mitchell broke a Jazz rookie record held by Karl Malone for most points by a rookie in a postseason game.

The series will now head back to the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, as the Thunder will attempt to reverse Utah's undeniable momentum.

Since Game 1 the Jazz have been in full control, with Mitchell being the top player on the floor surrounded by three current or former All-Stars.

Utah was up by 21 points in the third quarter and was able to cruise down the stretch for the game 4 victory.

Russell Westbrook and the rest of his team-mates struggled for the contest, despite the 29-year old point guard from Long Beach, California having 24 points while pulling down 14 rebounds and dishing out only three assists for a double-double for the game.

The Thunder could only manage 39.3% from the field and a repeat of that in Game 5 seems likely to send Oklahoma City home.

Utah can be backed at 125/1 to win the NBA Western Conference, while they are 4999/1 for the Championship.
