Westbrook downplays Rubio matchup after Game 4 loss: 'Let's get past that'

Ken Sanders of Ken Sanders Rare Books reads a poem inside a Utah Jazz playoff shrine on the corner of 200 East and 300 South in downtown Salt Lake City on Monday

"He made some shots".

It's astounding the level at which Mitchell is performing, as he's outplaying reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, future Hall of Fame forward Carmelo Anthony and five-time All-Star Paul George.

The series will end if Utah wins Wednesday, and the Jazz will go on to play the victor of the Houston-Minnesota series, which stands 3-1 in favor of the Rockets.

"Just gotta take what's given", he said. "Once I was in the game, they told me to wait because they were going to review it".

And he's taken it upon himself to shut down Rubio, too, it would seem. Will he come out and destroy the Jazz in Game 5?

Clint Capela added 14 points and 17 rebounds, Eric Gordon finally got going with 18 points off the bench and the Rockets easily recovered from their rough start. George hit eight of 11 three point attempts in Game 1 of the series but went nine of 29 in the last three contests. After the game, the Thunder star wanted to make things clear that the game wasn't about him and Rubio. In either event the National Basketball Association would have to make their judgment quickly, as Game 5 will take place Wednesday night in Oklahoma City at 9:30 ET. While the Thunder's descent into hell is highlighting that their status as no more than a platter of inefficient stars who don't fit together, the Jazz are the team that nobody saw coming. "As long as you don't hurt yourself, as long as it isn't anything insane, you've just got to keep your composure".

Game 5 will be played on Wednesday in Oklahoma City, where the Jazz, holding a 3-1 lead, have a chance to close the series out. During Game 2, when the Cavs were down 1-0 in the series, James scored 46 points in the 100-97 win.

With intensity dialed up and stakes raised in the playoffs, beefs between players and teams are about as common as travels that don't get called.

"We gotta be able to certainly handle them driving the ball and getting help when help needs to get there", Donovan continued.
