In the midst of the Utah Jazz's 115-102 win over Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night, Ricky Rubio became the first Jazz player since John Stockton in 2001 to get a triple-double in the playoffs. He claimed 26 points including 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

After putting up 22 points and 11 rebounds in Game 3, Mitchell is now averaging 25.7 points and nine boards in his first playoff series.

In winning Game 2, the Jazz looked good when they had Gobert and Favors on the court together, and they gambled that Anthony wouldn't make enough shots to prevent them from playing that way.

Westbrook will come out like a man possessed in this game, and will put up a big triple-double.

The two countries also held 11th Joint Economic Group meeting and the fifth Strategic Economic Dialogue (SED) in Beijing recently. Xi and Modi "will set a general direction, identify new goals and create a new dynamic for the growth of China-India relations".

Afterward, Westbrook vowed that the point guard matchup would play out differently in Game 4 on Monday. It helps a lot when you're making shots.

Game four tips off 9 PM CT Monday in Salt Lake City.

Thunder: Oklahoma City was outscored 30-14 after Adams sat down with his third foul early in the second quarter. Ingles had scored just 16 points through the first two games, but Ingles was everywhere in Game 3, scoring 21 points, including 5-of-10 from the 3-point line. With a loss, OKC regains home court advantage and we go to OKC 2-2, needing to win at least one more game on the road.

Rubio was playing in just the third play-off game of his 7-year National Basketball Association career. In the meantime, Westbrook and the Thunder have plenty of work to do.

Asked if the Rubio might have an encore in Game 4, Westbrook defiantly declared that he would shut down any chance of that happening. After only 16 total points and three assists in Oklahoma City, Ingles provided the offensive firepower down the stretch. "We're just making it harder on them, making them take tough shots and just trying to find ways to stop a high-powered offense", Towns said. "Joe just threw himself into the defensive end as well". "You feel more secure on the wing".

"We all have phones, we all have social media so of course we're aware of it but what else was he supposed to say?"

INJURY UPDATE: Westbrook was getting treatment on some sort of upper-body issue in Game 3 and was coy about it afterward, pointing out that most players are ailing at this time of year.
