Donovan Mitchell and Jamal Murray dropped opposing 50s and the Jazz escaped with a 129-127 victory in Game 4 of the playoffs.

Mitchell posted 51 points in total, becoming just the third player in NBA history to score 50 more than once in the same series, joining Michael Jordan (vs. Cleveland, 1988) and Allen Iverson (vs. Toronto, 2001). Murray’s 3-pointer that determined the final score boosted him to 50 points, making this the first game in NBA history that opposing players each reached these numbers, as Murray also broke the record for most points scored by a Denver player in a postseason game.

Jordan Clarkson and Mike Conley helped Mitchell’s efforts with 26 and 24 points each, while Rudy Gobert posted 17 points and 11 rebounds.

On the opposing end, Nikola Jokic exited the game with 29 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in 39 minutes.
