Jimmy Butler has not played a second in the fourth quarter. No official word on an injury, but he's been playing hurt all series.

Virtually the entire Thunder comeback, Carmelo Anthony was on the bench. And now he's coming back in with 7:58 left.

Rockets outscore Wolves 30-15 in the 3rd quarter. The lull that Thibodeau said his team couldn't have tonight. James Harden matched Minnesota's entire team with 15 in the quarter. Houston up 11 heading to the 4th.

James Harden in the last two third quarters: 37 points, 12-19 FG. The Rockets have outscored the Timberwolves by a total of 45 points in those two quarters.

Would you like to see Rudy Gobert's defensive impact? Watch the first half of this game versus the last 12 minutes or so.

Former Clippers teammates Jamal Crawford and Chris Paul exchanged heated words after Crawford ran over Paul. Crawford was called for an offensive foul and a technical foul.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

The Thunder went down 25, Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors got into foul trouble, and Russell Westbrook absolutely, completely, totally erupted. It is somehow a tie game heading to the fourth quarter. A remarkable turnaround.

Clint Capela's energy has been a dominant force. He has 15 points, 13 rebounds and is all over the place defensively.

Quin Snyder took a big gamble going back to Rudy Gobert as the Jazz started to slip, and it backfired as Gobert picks up his fifth foul with 3:50 left in the third. And the Thunder are into single-digits.

There was a lot of glaring and bickering among the Timberwolves during the timeout after James Harden blew by Taj Gibson and drove for an uncontested dunk.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

There's a small flicker of light for the Thunder behind a 14-2 run. With no Rudy Gobert on the floor, and Derrick Favors joining him in foul trouble, OKC has made a push to cut the lead to 13.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Rockets take the lead with a 10-2 run to start the second half. Houston had an 11-0 run right after halftime in Game 4 to get their 50-point quarter started.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Rudy Gobert picked up his fourth foul with 9:23 left in the third, opening a small window of opportunity for the Thunder to maybe close the gap. Instead, the Jazz have blown it open even wider, to 25.
