Russell Westbrook Fined $10000, Not Suspended for Rudy Gobert Altercation

The Thunder have lost seven consecutive road playoff games

The Utah Jazz's Jae Crowder was ejected for throwing an elbow into the nose of Steven Adams, who didn't seemed too bothered by it.

"It was not about me and him", Westbrook said. "Let's get past that".

Westbrook told reporters on Tuesday before the fine was announced that he had heard the horn blow and thought he was permitted to enter the game when he walked onto the floor.

Both players were assessed technical fouls in the Thunder's 113-96 loss. Rubio poured in 26 points to go with 11 rebounds and 11 assists, the first Jazz player to record a triple double in the playoffs since John Stockton did it in 2001.

Westbrook, on the other hand, had 23 points, 14 rebounds and three assists (with five turnovers) in 36 minutes but was minus-14.

The issue is whether Westbrook was technically in the game.

As Larsen writes, the league's question appears to be, "was Westbrook waved on the court by the officials or was he leaving the bench area to participate in an altercation?"

"Just gotta take what's given", he said. Not struggling for four games to begin the postseason. Still, if the Raptors can slow down Wall and Beal - or even just one of them - they'll have a good chance at winning Game 5. "It's going to be war", Rubio said. "We're not backing down but at the same time we know we have to be ready for a fight and respond". Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 33 points to help bring his team to victory.

The series will now shift back to Oklahoma City as the Thunder look to avoid elimination on their home court.

By the fourth quarter the heated emotions in the game were in overdrive. "It's pretty scary what we're capable of when defensively we're locked in like that and offensively we got it rolling". "There's nothing to it. We've just got to work with what we have".

If the Thunder win Wednesday, the two teams return to Utah for a Friday night game at Vivint Arena. But Mitchell is far more pleased with the way the entire team is playing.

"These guys are great at telling me to shoot it as much as possible within the flow of our team and our offense", Ingles said. Though the Timberwolves won Game 3, the Rockets showed why they're the top seed in the West with a win in Game 4.
