Russell Westbrook fined $10K, avoids suspension for altercation with Rudy Gobert

Russell Westbrook fined $10K, avoids suspension for altercation with Rudy Gobert”

As if the Oklahoma City Thunder aren't in enough trouble following a 113-96 Monday night defeat that has them facing a first-round out, they now could be without Russell Westbrook for Wednesday night's Game 5.

Joe Ingles' latest three-point barrage has powered the Utah Jazz to a feisty, tension-filled 113-96 victory that places them just one win away from eliminating the Oklahoma City Thunder from the National Basketball Association playoffs. If a player leaves the bench area, they are assessed an automatic one-game suspension even if they did not participate in the altercation.

But Westbrook, whose presence is unclear in video footage, reportedly gave him "a quick slap" in the ensuing fracas. "Let's get past that".

Russell Westbrook receives medical treatment on the bench during game four of the Thunder v Jazz NBA playoffs series. Both picked up technical fouls amid the niggle and Jazz forward Jae Crowder was ejected when his left forearm struck the Thunder's Kiwi centre Steven Adams in the face. Rubio didn't have quite the same stat line he did in game three, but he had 13 points, eight assists and six rebounds, and Utah was plus-22 in his 34 minutes on the court.

"We just stayed within ourselves", said Mitchell, who topped Karl Malone for the most ever by a Jazz rookie in a playoff game.

"I was already in the game", Westbrook said. It was a wild game that featured seven technical fouls and one ejection.

"The guys were great and told me to keep shooting".

"There's things that you're not going to escape", Head Coach Billy Donovan said. "We're not backing down, but at the same time, we know that we have to be ready for the fight".

On road in Salt Lake City, the Thunder didn't get the job done of regaining home court after abdicating it in Game 2 at Chesapeake Energy Arena. "We always say the strength of our team is the strength of our team". "There's nothing to it. As long as you don't hurt yourself and don't do anything insane, just got to keep your composure and get on to the next play sometimes". He'll now be available to play in Game 5 on Wednesday.

"We have to play like we played in Game 1", George said. Only Paul George with a team-high 32 points played relatively well.

Oklahoma City may be running out of answers other than Westbrook playing much better.

"We got our asses kicked by them twice", Durant said on Tuesday with a laugh.

The Thunder needs to figure that out in a hurry.
