Utah Jazz guard Ricky Rubio dropped a triple-double (26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists) on the Oklahoma City Thunder in Utah's 115-102 win on Saturday, and after the game, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook didn't seem inclined to let it happen again.
"He made some shots. Too comfortable," Westbrook said, per Royce Young of ESPN.com. "But I'm gonna shut that s--t off next game though. Guarantee that."
Utah's rookie sensation, Donovan Mitchell, appeared to have his own response to those comments:
The win gave Utah a 2-1 lead in the series. Westbrook struggled himself in Game 3, scoring just 14 points while turning the ball over eight times.
"Just gotta take what's given," he said. "I'm getting myself jumping in the air trying to look back to find [Paul George] and [Carmelo Anthony] and other guys on the floor. I've got to stay in attack mode and read my first option and go with that."
And he's taken it upon himself to shut down Rubio, too, it would seem.
