Russell Westbrook scores 45; Thunder beat Jazz to avoid elimination

Carmelo Anthony

But if the Thunder come back to win this series, this could go down as one of the worst losses in Utah Jazz history.

Westbrook had 45 points and 15 rebounds, George had 34 points and eight rebounds and Adams had six points and six rebounds. Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (27) grabs a rebound between Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George, left, and guard Russell.

Thunder: Former Thunder forward Enes Kanter, who was sent to NY in the deal that brought Anthony to Oklahoma City, attended the game. The Jazz used an 11-2 surge in the second quarter to open up a 52-37 lead on Gobert's dunk with 3:23 remaining. "We stopped getting back". Gobert re-entered during the burst and lasted just 81 seconds before picking up an offensive foul for No. 5 and heading right back to the bench.

There is only one match on Friday, where the Boston Celtics will be looking to close out their series with the Milwaukee Bucks, where they lead 3-2. Donovan Mitchell scored 23 points, and Joe Ingles added 16. Westbrook scored 20 points in the third quarter, as the Thunder used a 22-3 burst to erase a 25-point deficit in just eight minutes of action.


Clint Capela collected 26 points and 15 rebounds while James Harden unloaded 24 points to power the Rockets, who leaned on a strong third quarter. Crowder then dished to Ingles for a corner three and, after a bucket by Westbrook, he canned his third three of the game to cap a 15-5 run and give the Jazz a 25-19 lead. He played every minute of the third and fourth quarters.

Westbrook scored immediately at the start of the fourth to finally put the Thunder in front. Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, left, shoots as Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell defends during the second hal. "We got stops when we needed to".

The big difference was that they were still able to force the Jazz into 16 turnovers, allowing OKC to get out in transition and pick up easy buckets. "After Game 1, we had no chance of winning the series at all". "We need to do a better job". In all, it was a 10-2 run in just about two minutes of game time.

"When I get that confidence from my teammates there is no limit to what I can do", said Harden.
