Joe Ingles trolls Rudy Gobert after Game 4 win vs. Thunder

Joe Ingles trolls Rudy Gobert after Game 4 win vs. Thunder

Sporting a Utah Jazz jersey, Utah Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mitt Romney was seen Monday night at the Jazz-Thunder first-round playoff game heckling Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.

To the Thunder star's credit, though, Rubio was limited to 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting, eight assists and six rebounds overall.

Paul George scored 32 points and Russell Westbrook added 23 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Thunder. Carmelo Anthony finished with 11 points on a night when the Thunder's offense was effectively contained.

The Jazz will look to close out the series on the road in Wednesday's Game 5. A pair of Joe Ingles corner three-pointers ripped the game open to a six-point Jazz lead heading into halftime. "He is playing incredible, he doesn't seem like a rookie at all", Rubio said of Mitchell on a postgame interview with TNT. It's seven games and you've got to win four.

The Utah Jazz's Jae Crowder was ejected for throwing an elbow into the nose of Steven Adams, who didn't seemed too bothered by it.

Karl-Anthony Towns had 22 points and 15 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who were dominated on both ends of the floor during the decisive third and missed 14 of 21 shots over several panicked possessions.

Ingles was later called for a technical when he attempted to grab the ball off George.

Westbrook, on the other hand, clanked more than his fair share of shots, converting 7-of-18 from the field and missing all three of his 3-point attempts.

At the half, the score was 58-52, but there wasn't any one statistic or stat line that stood out. Utah takes a 3-1 series lead back to Oklahoma City.

If you extrapolate the numbers even further, Mitchell is in the elite company of the NBA's all-time leading scorer. Mitchell made consecutive baskets and Ingles capped the spurt with a 3-pointer to give Utah an 87-66 advantage with 1:56 left. The Jazz extended the lead to 90-73 after three quarters.

The Thunder trailed by 13 early in the fourth quarter before Utah responded with a 9-2 burst.
