Russell Westbrook vowed to stop Ricky Rubio and "shut that s--- off" in Game 4 after the Spanish point guard notched a triple-double against him in Game 3. Mission failed. Rubio once again got the better of the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player on Monday night as the Utah Jazz went up 3-1 in their first-round series with the Oklahoma City Thunder, winning 113-96 at Vivint Smart Home Arena. After the Game 4 defeat, Westbrook was unsurprisingly keen to put talk of the Rubio matchup to bed. "It's not about me and him," he said when questioned about defending Rubio, according to ESPN's Royce Young. "Let's get past that. We're done with that."
