Russell Westbrook fined $10000, gets tech for Rudy Gobert incident

They generated 30 free throws in Game 4 and were run out of Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The NBA has strict rules regarding altercations, with any player joining a skirmish from the bench subject to a one-game suspension. "Guys get physical, guys start doing certain things". He earned his fourth foul of the game with 1:36 remaining in the second quarter. It was already looking likely that the Rockets would improve to a 3-1 lead in the series after having dropped Game 3, but few could have predicted the offensive outburst that was about to occur.

Original story: The Oklahoma City Thunder won Game 1 of their first-round series with the Utah Jazz, but after three straight losses, they suddenly find themselves with their backs against the wall. The latter would be an ejection and a suspension for Game 5. "As long as you don't hurt yourself, as long as it isn't anything insane, you've just got to keep your composure".

Westbrook was fined $10,000 and given a postgame technical foul but will be able to play in Oklahoma's must-win Game 5 on Wednesday night, per Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania. "Let's get past that".

After the Game 4 defeat, Westbrook was unsurprisingly keen to put talk of the Rubio matchup to bed. "I've been in a game seven, and this was like the physicality of a game 7seven". Ricky Rubio, in his first playoff appearance in seven seasons, is reaching the potential many saw when he was a top five pick in 2009.

Westbrook, on the other hand, clanked more than his fair share of shots, converting 7-of-18 from the field and missing all three of his 3-point attempts.

Mitchell set a postseason rookie scoring record for the Jazz, passing Karl Malone, who had 31 points on April 20, 1986, against the Mavericks.

"This is the playoffs", said Rubio, who had 13 points and 8 assists. "We can sit here and say what we have to do, or what we did do or didn't do, but it comes down to winning that game on Wednesday [NZT Thursday]".
