  • Russell Westbrook saved the Thunder's season with a second half for the ages

    With 8:34 to go in the third quarter of Wednesday’s Game 5, Jae Crowder took a feed from Ricky Rubio and splashed down his sixth 3-pointer of the game to give the Utah Jazz a 71-46 lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder. All of the disappointing failings that had sunk the Thunder in Games 3 and 4 in Salt Lake City were rearing their ugly head again, leaving the home crowd at Chesapeake Energy Arena frustrated and their team seemingly a scant 20 1/2 minutes away from an ignominious end to a season that had begun with such high hopes. The NBA’s reigning Most Valuable Player took responsibility for saving OKC’s season into his own hands and he pulled it off, bum-rushing the Jazz by combining with All-Star running buddy Paul George to score 32 points over the final 8:34 of the third quarter — a career-single-quarter-high 20 for Westbrook, 12 for George — to completely erase Utah’s 25-point lead and head into the final frame all square at 78.
