Russell Westbrook fined $10000, gets tech for Rudy Gobert incident

May JohnsonApr 25, 2018

For a second straight game, a late second-quarter surge by Utah carried over into the second half and it allowed the Jazz to pull away for a 113-96 victory Monday night.

The win gave the Jazz a commanding 3-1 lead against a Thunder team also loaded with All-Stars Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony. In either event the National Basketball Association would have to make their judgment quickly, as Game 5 will take place Wednesday night in Oklahoma City at 9:30 ET. The Thunder don't know what to do about Donovan Mitchell or Rudy Gobert either.

"It's not about an individual matchup", said Jazz head coach Quin Snyder. "He's our most dynamic offensive player". Those events began when Utah's Rudy Gobert was fouled in the groin by OKC's Raymond Felton in a game that was already plenty heated. From there, we probably missed some opportunities to move the ball. "I thought he was a positive".

It was the second consecutive game he sank five threes.

"In listening to them talk, I sense that they don't seem to understand why they're losing", Thomas said.

But one thing is very clear: we should expect a whole lot more drama before this is all said and done.

The (PSL) said it would work closely with law enforcement to ensure that those responsible are subjected to the judicial process. Forty-three people died and 158 were hurt in a stampede during a match between Chiefs and the Orlando Pirates in 2001.

Whatever your view of Mitt Romney's politics, I think we can all agree he was probably the least cool person in the arena last night. Eventually, you're going to make some. The second half is where the Cavs' offense has faltered in the past two games. The Thunder trailed by as many as 21 points. To his credit, Russ did limit Ricky's numbers from Saturday, but not enough to help the Thunder win the game. Both teams picked up two technical fouls before halftime. "We've just got to work with what we have". And if they can't get a three, they're going to look to get a layup. "Guys get physical doing certain things. We're in it for the fight".

The Thunder face a hard task with or without Westbrook. Jazz in the Western Conference first round.

Rubio did not take the bait, telling reporters: "You're taking this too personal". Pictured above is Westbrook guarded by Joe Ingles during game four of the Thunder's series against the Jazz. "Let's get past that".

Mitchell's 110 points thus far in the series has the rookie in rarified air with His Airness. The Thunder were already down three games to one.

Westbrook did slow down Rubio's scoring, but Rubio was still effective, with 13 points, six rebounds and eight assists in 34 minutes. The Jazz were also a +22 with him on the floor.
