Russell Westbrook promises Ricky Rubio won't net triple double again

Russell Westbrook promises Ricky Rubio won't net triple double again”

He routinely backed the Jazz point guard down in Game 1 but went away from the strategy in Game 2. Rubio's was Utah's first postseason triple-double since Hall of Famer John Stockton did it. Being in the same company as an NBA Hall of Famer meant a great deal to Rubio.

For OKC, Russell Westbrook put in an uncharacteristically meek performance. "But what else is he supposed to say?" Rubio suddenly took over and imposed his will on both ends of the court. "He attacked, but with poise and he was making some shots".

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. Unfortunately, that's one of the only bright spots to point to as the Utah Jazz steamrolled them through the remaining three quarters.

Kings XI bat; Sunrisers bring in Jordan
Chris Gayle's century saw Kings XI Punjab beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 15 runs in their IPL2018 game in Mohali on Thursday. It didn't help Hyderabad that Shikhar Dhawan was forced to retire hurt in the second ball of the chase.

Having the unenviable task of covering Paul George certainly hasn't helped him, but while he isn't necessarily expected to "win" that matchup, the Jazz will need him to produce more than he has. "We look forward to these type of challenges". The Thunder averaged an inconceivably high 123.6 points per 100 on possessions that follow his defensive rebounds, according to data filtered by pbpstats.com. The Thunder are 5-6 in their last 11 games, and no one needs to remind them of how low the success rate is for teams that go down 3-1 in a series. Oklahoma City averaged only 93.3 points per 100 possessions while in its half-court offense this season, 21st in the National Basketball Association, according to Synergy Sports. Utah went on to build a 20-point lead in the final period and cruised to the victory. "I thought he took good shots and it really stabilized our group at that time". "It's been something I've been working on".

For all the offensive talent on the roster, this team has been one of the NBA's worst at scoring when the game is slow. It's come as a surprise to some, not only because Rubio doesn't have a reputation for being a shooter but also because it runs somewhat counter to the way they're defending Rubio in the mid-range and when he's off the ball, when they mostly leave him open to shoot.

In three games, Utah has outscored the Thunder 140-108 in the paint. But Snyder gave some insight into the process of his coaching staff, saying that he sometimes prefers them to rewatch games individually, then bring notes in the morning.
