Donovan Mitchell added 22 points for Utah, which took a 2-1 lead in its first-round series with Oklahoma City. Snyder said he hopes his team is more focused on getting sleep.

Westbrook probably would agree: He's 1 for 7 in this series with Gobert waiting at the rim for him.

"I think we made huge strides", he said.

But it wasn't enough to stop a convincing victory for Utah who eventually defeated the Thunder 115-102.

"I'm gonna shut that s*** off next game, though".

"We all have phones".

"We all have phones, we all have social media so of course we're aware of it but what else was he supposed to say?" He became the first Jazz player since John Stockton (2001) to reach double digits in three statistical categories in a playoff game. "I made some shots. But people forget that Ricky's played in a lot of big games". They needed 41 attempts to make 15 behind the arc in Game 3, as many as the Wolves swished in 27 tries.

"It doesn't work like that with our team", he said. The Thunder have done quite well in their history playing on the road against the Jazz, and also have a long list of series they have started 1-1. The officials have got a hard job in terms of trying to draw a line of what's excessive and what's not. Whether he can do it efficiently is another question, but expect him to take more than the 17 shots he took last game and dish out double figures in assists this time around.

Donovan's not wrong about Adams' tendencies.

When Utah pulls those Euro-fouls, the Thunder lose that effect. Mitchell, for his part, impressed again with 22 points, though he turned it over five times to go with just two assists. He fouled out in only one.

"I have a problem with every call, to be honest", he said. "I felt like our guys were working hard to get back, but it's hard to recover when you turn the ball over like that". "But they're calling it and it's a valid call". "If they call it, it's just, that's what it is".

Heading into Game 4, it's clear that the fans will be ready to vocally jab at George when the opportunity arises with a catchy nickname already in place for them to chant.

"At one point, and Joe missed a layup, wide-open layup, and he didn't want me to get the triple-double", Rubio said, "but luckily I've got Rudy Gobert on my team too to help me get that".
