  • Rubio's triple-double leads Jazz to playoff win

He became the first Jazz player since John Stockton (2001) to reach double digits in three statistical categories in a playoff game. Rubio had 26 points, 11 rebounds and ten assists in the win. If you believe Westbrook, all of his personal efforts will be dedicated to stopping Rubio, who has been phenomenal in the playoffs so far with averages of 20.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 8.0 assists.

"He made some shots, too comfortable", Westbrook said after the game.

Russell Westbrook is averaging a triple-double, so he gets plenty of attention.

Rubio sparked a 20-4 run in the first half to overcome a 12-point deficit, hitting a flurry of midrange jumpers as the Thunder sagged off of the point guard.

"The way we play, its a lot easier to shoot open shots", Ingles said. But Oklahoma City counterpart Russell Westbrook defiantly proclaimed there will be no more of that in Game 4 on Monday in Salt Lake City.

Players, however, are not expected to stay up late to recap games.

Thunder: Oklahoma City was outscored 30-14 after Adams sat down with his third foul early in the second quarter. "We haven't had two games this year where we've had to battle foul trouble with him like we've had to in Games 2 and 3".

Utah certainly went all out with its presentation for its first home playoff game this postseason. Mitchell, for his part, impressed again with 22 points, though he turned it over five times to go with just two assists.

Utah is taking a 2-1 lead into their Western Conference first-round series against Oklahoma City on Monday night, and Gobert is probably as responsible for the Jazz being in that position than anyone.

Rubio was playing in just the third play-off game of his 7-year National Basketball Association career.

The Thunder, shot 16 for 24 on field goals and 7 for 11 on 3s, to lead 45-33 on Westbrook's layup with 7:26 left in the second quarter. "You feel more secure on the wing".

"I just changed my mentality and tried to be more aggressive", Rubio said.

Asked if the Rubio might have an encore in Game 4, Westbrook defiantly declared that he would shut down any chance of that happening. "I condone it", Anthony said of Westbrook's comments. "I have huge respect for him and playing here was great because I know how big of a point guard he was for this franchise".
