With a pivotal fourth game approaching, Dan and Ken Clayton get back to breaking down the Jazz’s first-round playoff series with the Thunder. Utah is up 2-1 after a historic performance from Ricky Rubio, but reigning MVP Russell Westbrook has vowed to “shut that (stuff) down” when the teams resume the series on Monday night. As the Clayton bros find in their dissection of the series so far, Westbrook’s promise to stay glued to Rubio could actually bode well for Utah. They break that down and talk about some other signs — some historical, some contextual — that might give fans a hint as to how Game 4 could go.
