Russell Westbrook breaks the Utah Jazz in historic Oklahoma City Thunder comeback

Carmelo Anthony

The offense got stagnant, they made adjustments and we didn't make the right adjustments back. Westbrook's 3-pointer tied the game at 78 heading into the fourth quarter. Back-to-back 3s by Westbrook and Alex Abrines put Oklahoma City up 96-91, and a jumper by Westbrook with 1:24 left put Oklahoma City up 107-99.

Oklahoma City came to life with Gobert on the bench with four fouls and got back into the contest with a 22-3 push.

In the first quarter, Utah went insane on OKC from distance. Oklahoma City then controlled the fourth quarter.

OKC continued the dominance through the final 12 minutes as Westbrook combined with Paul George to nail the coffin shut on a Jazz comeback.

Kanter, whose New York Knicks did not make the playoffs, attended Game 5 between the Thunder and the Utah Jazz, coincidentally his two former teams.

Westbrook scored 33 points in the second half, and George had 21 after the break.

"A 20-point lead in the National Basketball Association is not safe, (and) especially against guys like Russell Westbrook and Paul George", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said, according to the Tulsa World.

On the Jazz's ensuing possession, Crowder found Gobert for what would have been an easy dunk, but Gobert passed the ball out to a wide-open Donovan Mitchell for a 3-point try, which missed, and Westbrook made another jumper on the other end of the floor. Utah Jazz forward Jae Crowder (99) celebrates with Ricky Rubio (3) during a timeout in the second half of Game 5 of the team'. "But we are going home and we've got to be strong and be confident".

Jazz: Shot 57 percent in the first quarter to take a 34-29 lead. Mitchell was fouled on a 3-pointer with 11.1 seconds left in the first half.

Game 6 is Friday at Salt Lake City.

"We stopped playing defense", said Donovan Mitchell, who had 23 points". George made a 3-pointer at the first-quarter buzzer. "We never quit. I can't pinpoint one thing we did wrong".

The victor of the series, whoever it ends up being, will face the first-seed Houston Rockets in the semifinals, after they completed a 4-1 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves in one of the four other games on Thursday, winning 122-104.

"Just picked my spots and tried to be aggressive", Westbrook said.
