Considered the third member of Oklahoma City's "big three", Anthony has struggled to find his shot this season. "At the end of the day it's basketball and even if you try to do something else, we're just going to keep playing basketball". Then Jae Crowder was ejected with a technical foul with 5:30 remaining in the fourth quarter. "We're not backing down but at the same time we know we have to be ready for a fight and respond". It was a tough start for both James Harden and the Rockets, as Harden missed his first seven shots and his team led by just one after halftime. Rubio is averaging 8.0 assists per game in the series.
The series will now shift back to Houston for Game 5, where the Rockets should be heavy favorites to close it out. Donovan Mitchell led the way for the Jazz with 33 points, and every member of the team's starting lineup had at least 13 points. I said this morning we're not really anxious about one individual comment. Gobert stayed on the floor for a few seconds holding himself and then said something to Felton as he walked past him on the way to the bench and Felton reacted. "Guys get physical doing certain things. I think if we get caught up in that it takes us out of our own game and our play showed tonight that we really just focused on each other and made the right plays when we needed to".
Westbrook publicly promised to shut down Rubio in Game 4 after the Jazz point guard notched a triple-double in Game 3. In addition, 44 personal fouls were called in the game.More news: Swampscott Police will take back unwanted prescription drugs

Clad in a Jazz jersey draped over a tucked-in dress shirt, Romney smiled and held up four fingers, helpfully reminding Westbrook of the foul trouble he found himself in.
Mitchell set a postseason rookie scoring record for the Jazz, passing Karl Malone, who had 31 points on April 20, 1986, against the Mavericks. "Definitely an honor. No doubt about that, but we have one more game, so I'm focused on that".
