Over the final 7:13 of the first half, Rubio ripped off 15 points on 4 of 8 shooting, collected six rebounds, dished out a pair of assists and had a steal.

NEED TO KNOW: The Timberwolves bounced back from a 20-point loss in Game 2 with a sellout-crowd-inspired 16-point victory over the Rockets in Game 3 that was the franchise's first win in the playoffs since 2004. Just like the Thunder will continue to allow Ricky Rubio to shoot 3's and jump shots, playing the odds that he will miss, the Jazz will gladly let Russell Westbrook settle for bad mid-range shots; Most of which are contested turn-around-fade-aways.
Paul George told reporters Friday that he has "made huge strides" in recovering from the right hip contusion he suffered during Game 1 of the Thunder's first-round playoff series against Utah. I predicted Thunder in 5, on the Loud City Podcast, and they had to lose a game for that to come true.
Russell Westbrook took 11 rebounds and 9 assists for Oklahoma.
For the Utah Jazz, even up 2-1 in their first-round series against Oklahoma City, that detail has been turnovers.
Heading into Game 4, it's clear that the fans will be ready to vocally jab at George when the opportunity arises with a catchy nickname already in place for them to chant. "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". That's particularly been the case for Jae Crowder, who was Utah's sixth man for the latter half of the regular season and put in some exceptional minutes. If along with all that they can get solid contributions from their bench as well, they could very well take the Thunder by the throat with a commanding 2-1 series lead.
Westbrook, meanwhile, was less than pleased that Rubio got the better of him and vowed to flip the script going forward.
"It was just tough shooting", George said. "We made a run and it helps a lot when you're making shots and it felt great". Perhaps Gobert's defensive presence is making one of the game's most instinctive players think twice. "We want to win this and we're going out to try to win this game". "We move the ball so well".
The Thunder center is consistently effective at defending without fouling.
