SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz avoided a first-round sweep on Monday night, winning 107-91 over the Houston Rockets to force a Game 5.

Twitter went off.

In the fourth quarter, Donovan Mitchell found his groove with two back-to-back 3-pointers, scoring 19 in the fourth quarter. At one point, TNT’s Marv Albert called him “Mitchell Donovan.”

Mitchell received a lot of praise from fans.

Fans were surprised when the referee called a travel on James Harden.

And then there was this funny exchange with Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey:

In the first half, Twitter went wild over Jae Crowder’s success.

And then Ricky Rubio had a great start, too.

Mitchell drew criticism for his missed shots.
