OKC's Russell Westbrook eats words: does not 'shut sh*t down'


The score was tied at 87-87 in Game 2 before Utah made a few shots to pull away at the end. Westbrook picked up his first foul by "accidentally" tripping Rubio and the tension remained between the two throughout the entire game.

Russell Westbrook drives into the lane, which is normal.

Utah takes a 3-1 series lead back to Oklahoma City.

"Playoff games are won each possession", point guard Russell Westbrook said.

"Just gotta take what's given", he said. "Once they did that, the altercation happened, so I was already on the floor".




Donovan waited until Game 5 of last season's first-round playoff series against Houston to make the most drastic postseason changes. To his credit, Russ did limit Ricky's numbers from Saturday, but not enough to help the Thunder win the game. He did record a double-double of 23 points and 14 rebounds, but his three assists were his lowest of the entire 2017-18 campaign. Only 11 teams in National Basketball Association history have come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the series. Game 5 in the best-of-seven playoff is Wednesday night. The team's superstar trio has failed to deliver on a consistent basis when it matters the most and the lack of a supporting cast has really hampered Oklahoma City.

"That's just what you're going to get with a playoff team", George said.

Westbrook certainly came out aggressively in his quest to keep Rubio at bay, yet it was that overzealous play that ultimately cost him. "He said he had the broom for us". Westbrook ultimately did not foul out, but the Thunder lost the game and now face elimination as Utah leads the series three games to one. "But at the same time, we got a focus that we are trying to go in there and win Game 5".

Game five is in Oklahoma City on Wednesday. "I thought we were at the rim a lot more".

Ingles missed his first four three-pointers, but in a game-defining 90-second period late in the second quarter he hit three consecutive long bombs to give the Jazz a 58-52 half-time lead.
