For the Thunder, here's why Game 4 is absolutely a 'must win'

Thunder Vs. Jazz Live Stream: Watch NBA Playoffs Game 3 Online Jazz take 2-1 series lead over Thunder; Rubio has monster night
Frederick Owens | 22 April, 2018, 14:37

"He was a leader", Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell, who finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds, said.

The 27-year-old is averaging 20.3 points, 8.0 assists, and 8.3 rebounds through three games and posting his first playoff triple-double on Saturday. They now face a daunting 2-1 deficit and have to play Game 4 in Salt Lake City once again on Monday night. After looking out of sorts through two games, Ingles exploded for 21 points and hit five 3-pointers.

With a full arena chanting his name, Ricky Rubio recorded a triple-double as he led the Jazz to a 115-102 win over Oklahoma City Saturday night.

The NZer played 26 minutes and had only eight points and two rebounds while opposing centre Rudy Gobert contributed 18 points and 12 rebounds for the victors.

-11: The Jazz turned their offensive rebounding into a 19-8 advantage in second-chance points. 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.

Sports Illustrated took a close look at all 11 times a team has come back from a 3-1 series deficit.

That's the kind of Ingles the Jazz need going forward, Snyder said.

There's no question having Favors at full strength has improved Utah's ability to counter a Thunder team featuring the potent trio of Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. Westbrook's 14 point haul was one of his worst of the season, and he didn't even attempt a shot in the fourth quarter.

With Utah trailing 47-43, Rubio scored 10 consecutive Jazz points and his 3-pointer and subsequent three free throws gave Utah a 53-49 lead. On the lighter side, Rubio had a man bun today, and it's worth a mention he's put up more points, boards and dimes while being more efficient and posting a 14.5 net rating when he has a man bun compared to without one (H/T SLC Dunk). Steven Adams, who had zero offensive rebounds in a game for the first time since November 5, fought through foul trouble during the loss.

Oklahoma City's hot shooting continued as the Thunder stretched its lead to 12, but it wasn't long after that Rubio got going.

Utah intercepted passes intended for 3-point shooters on the way to 17 forced turnovers. Royce O'Neale and George each got technicals for some pushing and words early in the fourth quarter.

It was the usually under-achieving Timberwolves' first postseason victory in 14 years, although the Rockets still hold a 2-1 series lead.

"He made some shots", the reigning MVP said. Utah responded with nine-straight points, including five from Mitchell. The Oklahoma City Thunder have won 10 of their last 16 road games. "I just try to make them think".

"I don't know", the Thunder coach said, "he seems fine to me".
