Utah Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney taunted Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook courtside at an National Basketball Association playoff game between the Thunder and the Utah Jazz Monday night. They generated 30 free throws in Game 4 and were run out of Vivint Smart Home Arena. "When we're in rotations, keeping those guys off the backboard is something that we've got to do".

By the fourth quarter the heated emotions in the game were in overdrive.

The Washington Wizards tied their series with the Toronto Raptors at 2-2 after being down 2-0, and the Utah Jazz extended their series lead to 3-1 on Monday over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Westbrook has struggled mightily in the series so far as the Thunder are down 3-1 after winning Game 1 of the series. To his credit, Russ did limit Ricky's numbers from Saturday, but not enough to help the Thunder win the game. "As long as you don't hurt yourself and don't do anything insane, just got to keep your composure and get on to the next play sometimes".

Back to Back for Kyle Busch
Instead, Larson got a significant challenge from Stenhouse on the restart and the No. 17 Roush Fenway Racer almost took the lead. Kyle Busch passed Kyle Larson with five laps remaining at Bristol Motor Speedway to win his second straight Cup Series race.

Russell Westbrook receives medical treatment on the bench during game four of the Thunder v Jazz NBA playoffs series. We know that it's going to be another war next game and we just need to be tough but at the same time mentally ready for that. They shot 43 3-pointers in Game 4, and they shot 37.2 percent from the 3-point line. That included the former Presidential candidate, who held up his four fingers in celebration of Westbrook's foul trouble.

The Jazz will look to close out the series on the road in Wednesday's Game 5. "Let's get past that".

Rookie star Donovan Mitchell top-scored for the Jazz with 33 points.

Westbrook, on the other hand, had 23 points, 14 rebounds and three assists (with five turnovers) in 36 minutes but was minus-14. Westbrook picked up his first foul by "accidentally" tripping Rubio and the tension remained between the two throughout the entire game. If the Thunder needs defense in Game 5, Huestis is a possibility in the rotation.
