Westbrook vows Rubio won't repeat stellar game

Rubio's triple-double leads Jazz to playoff win

Westbrook wasn't his usual self Sunday, finishing with just 14 points on 5-of-17 shooting and eight turnovers.

"Having my name next to his name is an honor", Rubio said of joining the Hall of Famer in making franchise history. "Defensively, it's angles. I know how to read guys". Utah also had two players with double-doubles: Rookie guard Donovan Mitchell, with 22 points and 11 rebounds, and center Rudy Gobert, who had 18 points and 12 rebounds. In order for the Thunder to impose its will on Utah, Russell Westbrook will need to play a game that more closely resembles what fans have grown accustomed to.

Game 3 between the Jazz and Thunder would see a guard produce a triple-double.

Going back to the regular season, Westbrook hasn't shot better than 40 percent in any of his last six games - the worst such streak of his career. "Too comfortable. But I'ma shut that shit off next game, though".

For the Utah Jazz, even up 2-1 in their first-round series against Oklahoma City, that detail has been turnovers.

The 76ers lead their Eastern Conference series 3-1 and can eliminate the Heat in game five in Philadelphia on Wednesday (NZ time). In the first two games, the Jazz have received few contributions from their reserve unit, which is something that will likely need to change dramatically if they are to win Game 3 and take a 2-1 victory.

Many of his songs highlight issues he has faced, such as racism, life on the streets, self-love, police brutality and survival. Dana Canedy , the administrator of the prizes, said in an interview that, "The time was right".

OKC will get closer than the 13 points they lost by in Game 3, but will ultimately fall short of a very accomplished Jazz side.

George has proven to live up to that with his play on the court through the first couple of games in the series. The Jazz covered the spread as 5-point favorites, and the game went over the total of 209. The Thunder managed just 16 fourth-quarter points, with Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony missing all 14 of their shot attempts in the final frame.

"Just being able to get him out of transition, because [Westbrook] is elite when it comes to transition", Mitchell said. "We've got such an unselfish team so it makes it fun". He essentially served as the Thunder's sixth man this season, averaging 8.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game. I felt good about it, but it wasn't going in.

"A lot of s-- going on with my body", Westbrook said, "but that's everybody right now".
