Management recognized the commentary was vile, and even though it likely wasn't his intention to be as much, they spoke to the announcer to express their displeasure with him using the term. Matt Pinto, the team's radio voice, will fill in for Davis on the broadcast when the Thunder host the Utah Jazz in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series Sunday night, according to multiplemedia outlets. George led the team with 36 points on 13-20 shooting on a night he had something to prove after Indiana's win over Cleveland earlier in the day.
His eight three-pointers set a Thunder franchise record. George scored 26 points on 9-of-10 shooting, including 5 of 5 on 3-pointers in the first half to help Oklahoma City score a season-high 77 points in the first half. After Grant's two assists, he twice added his patented acrobatic layups, against the Utah's Stifle Tower, 7-foot-1 Rudy Gobert. OKC struggled from the free-throw line in the regular season, ranking 29th in the National Basketball Association, however they went 20 for 23 from the line in game one. Including Alex Abrines who returned after missing the last two games in the concussion protocol. He's a capable 3-point shooter, having hit six of them against Memphis in December. Only the Houston Rockets have won more since January 24, with Utah going 30-8 since the big Frenchman came back into the lineup.
For Game 1, sportsbooks list OKC as a 3.5-point favorite. New Orleans in the 2012-13 season.

The Jazz bolted out of the gates to a 16-4 lead, before George began his three-point onslaught to bring the Thunder back into the game. When they needed someone to step up with the reserves and keep their momentum going, George was there.

George will have the hip evaluated Monday to determine the extent of the injury.
