OKC had the Jazz right where they wanted them.
In Oklahoma City, the Thunder fended off elimination on the back of their superstar Westbrook, who scored 20 of his 45 points in the third quarter. Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, left, shoots as Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell defends during the second hal.
Oklahoma City came to life with Gobert on the bench with four fouls and got back into the contest with a 22-3 push.
The Rockets will face the victor of the Utah Jazz-Oklahoma City Thunder series.
The way the Thunder had been playing this series, it would have made sense if they put their heads down and started planning their offseason vacations midway through the third quarter when they trailed by 25 points - 25 points! Donovan Mitchell tallied 23 points, Joe Ingles had 16, Rudy Gobert added 11 points and 10 rebounds and Ricky Rubio had 10 points and 12 rebounds.
Clint Capela collected 26 points and 15 rebounds while James Harden unloaded 24 points to power the Rockets, who leaned on a strong third quarter.
Westbrook scored 33 points in the second half, and George had 21 after the break. UtahJazz center Rudy Gobert (27) grabs a rebound between Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George, left, and guard Russell. If not, Mitchell will return to OKC for Game 7 on Sunday. Of course, you have to give them credit, they made a lot of shots and forced a Game 6.
Paul George added 34 points and eight rebounds as Oklahoma City cut Utah's lead in the best-of-seven series to 3-2.
Perhaps this is the main reason why the Thunder are down 3-1 against the UtahJazz.
Utah led 91-90 after Gobert's dunk with 6:36 remaining before Westbrook and Alex Abrines buried 3-pointers to give the Thunder a five-point lead with 5:52 to play. Two free throws by Gobert, a breakaway dunk by Ingles (off an acrobatic pass from Gobert), two free throws by Crowder, and a transition dunk by Gobert (after Mitchell stole a pass by Westbrook) pushed Utah's lead to 15.
Game 6 is Friday at Salt Lake City. "We never quit. I can't pinpoint one thing we did wrong". George made a 3-pointer at the first-quarter buzzer.
"Just picked my spots and tried to be aggressive", Westbrook said.

It was the first time a Jazz player recorded a triple-double in the postseason since John Stockton did it on April 28, 2001. And, given he is 11 for 31 overall and 4 for 16 from three through two games, it's hard to argue against Utah's strategy.
