The Wizards force Game 5 and Donovan Mitchell drops 30 points on the Grizzlies | SportsNation
SportsNation goes through Monday’s biggest stories including the Washington Wizards beating the Philadelphia 76ers to force a Game 5 in Philadelphia. Joel Embiid left the game at the end of the 1st quarter and didn’t return due to a right knee injury, he’s set to have an MRI but it’s unsure if he’ll be able to play on Wednesday. Russell Westbrook recorded another triple-double with 19 points, 21 rebounds, and 14 assists. However, he also became the first player to ever shoot less than 20% in a playoff triple-double performance. Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 30 points in their win over the Grizzlies. Rudy Gobert added 17 points and Jordan Clarkson dropped 24 to give Utah a 3-1 series lead. SportsNation goes back, back, back to 1997 when Michael Jordan hit a jumper over Bryon Russell as time expired to give the Bulls the victory, 84-82.

Michael Jeffrey Jordan is an American former professional basketball player who is the principal owner of the Charlotte Hornets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played 15 seasons in the NBA, winning six championships with the Chicago Bulls.
Jordan won his first NBA championship with the Bulls in 1991, and followed that achievement with titles in 1992 and 1993, securing a “three-peat”. Jordan abruptly retired from basketball before the 1993–94 NBA season to play Minor League Baseball, but returned to the Bulls in March 1995 and led them to three more championships in 1996, 1997, and 1998, as well as a then-record 72 regular-season wins in the 1995–96 NBA season. He retired for a second time in January 1999 but returned for two more NBA seasons from 2001 to 2003 as a member of the Washington Wizards.
In 2014, Jordan became the first billionaire player in NBA history, with a net worth of $2.1 billion.

The territory of modern Utah has been inhabited by various indigenous groups for thousands of years, including the ancient Puebloans, the Navajo, and the Ute. The Spanish were the first Europeans to arrive in the mid-16th century, though the region’s difficult geography and climate made it a peripheral part of New Spain and later Mexico.
Disputes between the dominant Mormon community and the federal government delayed Utah’s admission as a state; only after the outlawing of polygamy was it admitted as the 45th, in 1896.
A little more than half of all Utahns are Mormons, the vast majority of whom are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which has its world headquarters in Salt Lake City. Utah is the only state where most of the population belongs to a single church. The LDS Church greatly influences Utahn culture, politics, and daily life, though since the 1990s the state has become more religiously diverse as well as secular.
The state has a highly diversified economy, with major sectors including transportation, education, information technology and research, government services, and mining and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation.
A 2012 Gallup national survey found Utah overall to be the “best state to live in the future” based on 13 forward-looking measurements including various economic, lifestyle, and health-related outlook metrics.
