Oklahoma City face elimination after humbling game four loss to Utah Jazz

The Thunder have lost seven consecutive road playoff games

Russell Westbrook, who made a guarantee to shut down Ricky Rubio after the Jazz guard went off for 26 points Saturday night, has fouled out of only 10 games in more than 800 career games over 10 seasons, but picked up four fouls in the first half alone and was clearly frustrated by the end of the night after another sub-par game (23 points on 7-of-18 shooting and just three assists).

"I knew it was coming", Rubio said, his eyes rolling toward the ceiling.

Utah Jazz centre Rudy Gobert, left and Steven Adams reach for a loose ball in the first half during Game 4 of their National Basketball Association playoff series.

Game five was riddled with technical fouls - seven in total, including the ejection of Jazz forward Jae Crowder for an elbow to the face of Adams during a fourth quarter midcourt scuffle.

Game 5 takes place in Oklahoma City on Thursday from 11:30am AEST on ESPN and NBA League Pass. "We're playing as a team".

"I got some good looks early from my teammates and I think missed the first three or four", Ingles said on Inside the National Basketball Association post-game. These vulnerabilities on defense also mean Oklahoma City will miss out on more points in transition. "Obviously he's a really good player and I've got my work cut out for me each night defending him, so i'm not going to back down". "He's been hitting shots like that for us all year". "Ricky played wonderful last game, so the competitor in anything would be like I want to go after him the next game".

Physical play and heated emotions characterized the game.

Kiwi Steven Adams was dominated for the third game-straight by opposing centre Rudy Gobert, who double-doubled with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Rubio says that they need to stick to their gameplan.

"It's a neat thing", said Jazz head coach Quin Snyder. When Crowder went after Westbrook, Melo then jumped in and got into it with Crowder.
