Jazz's Ricky Rubio shrugs off Russell Westbrook's guarantee ahead of Game 4

Jazz's Ricky Rubio shrugs off Russell Westbrook's guarantee ahead of Game 4

A loss would cost the Jazz home-court and they would go back to Oklahoma City for Game 5 with the Thunder thinking they have control of the matchup. Oklahoma City lost its third straight in the series after shooting just 39 percent from the field. From there, we probably missed some opportunities to move the ball. Rubio put up 26 points, 11 boards and 10 assists in a 115-102 victory in Game 3 to give Utah a 2-1 advantage in the series.

Utah coach Quin Snyder, whose total number of technical fouls in his four years as Jazz coach can be counted on one hand, picked up a T after Gobert was mugged underneath the basket, attempting a shot. Eventually, you're going to make some.

The Jazz led by as many as 21 points in the third quarter. When Crowder went after Westbrook, Melo then jumped in and got into it with Crowder.

Physical play and heated emotions characterized the game.

Russell Westbrook and Ricky Rubio battle it out all game, but Rubio gets the best of Westbrook by drawing three fouls. After a long conference by the officials, Westbrook was called for his fifth personal foul and Crowder was given a technical and ejected from the game.

But Sanders said the USA wouldn't make the mistake of past administrations in taking the North Koreans "simply at their word". US President Donald Trump has accepted an invitation of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for a summit meeting.

Thunder: Westbrook finished with his fourth consecutive double double in the series. (See: his 24-point, 12-rebound, three-block Game 1.) His price has dropped a bit due to those two down games, so he has the potential to provide even more value.

On the other side of things, Westbrook had a below average performance, finishing with 14 points (5-17 shooting), 11 assists, nine rebounds and eight turnovers.

Mitchell shot 13-for-28 from the field, including a 3-for-8 stint from three-point range.

George's numbers haven't been bad this series, but in the mind game department, it's clear that Ingles has him beat.
