Mitt Romney taunts Russell Westbrook during playoff game

Westbrook's hyper-aggressiness backfired on him, though, as he picked up four fouls in the first half - all on Rubio - as he attempted to crank up the intensity.

The only team in the history of the National Basketball Association play-offs with more points in one quarter was the Los Angeles Lakers, who scored 51 points in the fourth on March 31, 1962, in a loss to the Detroit Pistons.

James Harden scored 22 of his 36 points in the third quarter to help the Houston Rockets beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 119-100 on the road.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was seen courtside during Game 4 of the first round series between the Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Crowder confronted Westbrook but the Thunder's Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams convened and grabbed the Utah forward, who reacted with a elbow to Adams' face.

After winning the series opener, the Thunder have struggled to slow down the Jazz, and Utah's star rookie guard Donovan Mitchell, in particular.

Paul George led Oklahoma City with 32 points, but the Thunder went just 5-of-26 from 3-point range. The Rockets outscored the Timberwolves 50-20 in the third quarter to take a 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference first-round matchup. In doing so, they became just the second team to score 50-plus points in a quarter in playoff history. Russell Westbrook finished with 23 points, 14 rebounds, and three assists. The Jazz are now up 3-1 in their best-of-seven first-round series with the Thunder.

Game 5 is set for Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. "We hit some timely ones in the second half".

It finally culminated in another Gobert dunk that punctuated a 20-3 run extending over the second and third quarters that gave Utah a 67-52 lead. Adams handled it like a pro and didn't even flinch, while Crowder would end up being ejected.

Donovan MItchell was fantastic in the game, finishing with 33 points on 13 of 28 shooting, seven rebounds and four assists.
