Jazz hoping to take control against Thunder in Game 3

Jazz hoping to take control against Thunder in Game 3

Westbrook, meanwhile, was off all night, finishing with 14 points (on 5-17 shooting), 11 rebounds and nine assists.

"Having my name next to his name is an honor", Rubio said of Stockton. However, Joe Ingels will also not be held to just 3-points again and his slow start to the series worries me-Everyone knows eventually he will burn the Thunder from deep, because of course.

"I condone it. I'm all for it", Anthony said of Westbrook's comments that he would shut Utah point guard Ricky Rubio off.

Through two playoff games, the Jazz have limited the Thunder's transition opportunities by committing what are commonly refered to as "Euro-fouls", when they intentionally hack whichever Thunder player is leading a fast break, usually Russell Westbrook.

Oklahoma City Thunder star Steven Adams admits he's frustrated with officials and their calls against him so far in his National Basketball Association playoff series against the Utah Jazz.

"He made some shots", Westbrook said. "It was definitely a good game for me".

Afterward, Westbrook vowed that the point guard matchup would play out differently in Game 4 on Monday. In the first two games, the Jazz have received few contributions from their reserve unit, which is something that will likely need to change dramatically if they are to win Game 3 and take a 2-1 victory. The Thunder did a good job on him for three quarters of Game 2, but he was able to get rolling and torch the OKC defense for 13 points in the fourth quarter.

It means that the jury and the board judging system worked as it's supposed to - the best work was awarded a Pulitzer Prize . He recently announced a massive summer tour as well as curated the soundtrack to the groundbreaking Black Panther movie.

Rubio's efforts rescued Utah when the Jazz dug a hole late in the first quarter and early in the second quarter. Unfortunately, that's one of the only bright spots to point to as the Utah Jazz steamrolled them through the remaining three quarters.

Utah certainly went all out with its presentation for its first home playoff game this postseason. The whole season, I've been saying if somebody gets by me, it's like, "All right, go ahead, try it".

"It was just tough shooting", George said.

"The way we play, its a lot easier to shoot open shots", Ingles said. "Shots didn't go in, and I thought I can get better looks than what I got down that stretch".

Some parts of the game, no matter how much time is spent refining them, just seem to slide the wrong way. "We move the ball so well". Jimmy Butler had 28 points and Karl-Anthony Towns had 18 points and 16 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who were more aggressive than they were in Games 1 and 2.

The Thunder center is consistently effective at defending without fouling.
