Jazz 116, Rockets 108


Joe Ingles scored a career-high 27 points and the Utah Jazz squandered a huge early lead before using a big fourth quarter to regain control and beat the Houston Rockets and tie the series at 1-1. Ingles made a career-best seven 3-pointers and star rookie Donovan Mitchell added 17 points and 11 assists for his first game this postseason where he scored fewer than 20 points. The Jazz used a 16-2 run to pull away in the fourth. Game 3 is Friday in Utah. James Harden had 32 points and 11 assists, and Chris Paul added 23 points. Houston fell to Utah for the first time this season after winning the first five meetings.
