Jonas Jerebko on Russell Westbrook's guarantee'We're not really worried

KEEP AN EYE ON: Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook from deep.

Later, Snyder nearly could have gotten another technical when he leaped out on the court when Westbrook appeared to throw Rubio to the floor on the offensive end.

Di Francesco wants his Roma players to be on the front foot at Anfield on Tuesday evening against the highest scorers in the Champions League this season.

It was in line with the attitude Westbrook has seemed to carry with Rubio over the last several years, attacking him aggressively on offense while sagging off of him on defense. After the fourth foul, Westbrook just wasn't the same player as he protected against his fifth.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz resume their first-round National Basketball Association playoff matchup Monday night in Salt Lake City, where the Jazz will take a 3-1 series lead if they win.

Currently, the Jazz has a 2-1 series lead. OKC is losing a very simple math problem. So I don't look into relationships too much. Carmelo Anthony went just 5-of-18 from the field. Billy Donovan says he's fine - or at least he hasn't been told of any injury - and Westbrook has fully participated in practices and shoot-arounds. It isn't a coincidence that Westbrook finished with three assists and didn't have any in the first quarter. The Jazz are now up 3-1 in their best-of-seven first-round series with the Thunder. Donovan Mitchell has been great in his first three playoff games, so the fascination with the rookie star is only growing. But the way the Jazz have outclassed the Thunder in the past two games sure makes it feel like it should. He had 20 points, five rebounds, five assists, and two stocks (steals and blocks) in Game 3, and has now had back-to-back games of two stocks.
