Ricky Rubio responds to Russell Westbrook’s vow to ‘shut him down
Russell Westbrook has been fined $10,000 and assessed a postgame technical foul for initiating a confrontation with Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert on Monday. The team's superstar trio has failed to deliver on a consistent basis when it matters the most and the lack of a supporting cast has really hampered Oklahoma City. "I think time after time, we've done a good job of just responding, proving the way that we want to play and imposing our will on our opponent". We've just got to win. On the surface it doesn't seem like a big deal given there were like a dozen minor skirmishes throughout the game, but this one might cost Westbrook and the Thunder.
Speaking of bulletin board material, Westbrook tried to hold up his guarantee right from tipoff, picking Rubio up full court and digging deep into a defensive stance - even clapping his hands - on the first possession.
Westbrook told reporters he heard the horn to allow him into the game. "Let's get past that".
Wall, who had a combined 55 points and 28 assists in the two victories in Washington, said he wished Drake had been there to see Washington's comeback in person. "He said he had the broom for us". Both teams picked up two technical fouls before halftime.
After the Game 4 defeat, Westbrook was unsurprisingly keen to put talk of the Rubio matchup to bed.
