Oklahoma City Thunder comeback keeps playoff series with Utah Jazz alive

Russell Westbrook took more shots than Kobe Bryant ever did in playoffs

In addition, he rocked a "Stache Brothers" t-shirt (a nod to the nickname that he and Steven Adams had when they were teammates in OKC) and made sure to tweet a good luck message to the Thunder from the stands before tip-off. Westbrook's 3-pointer tied the game at 78 heading into the fourth quarter.

Despite having blown a 25-point lead in Game 5 of their playoff series Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road, the Utah Jazz still had a chance to come away with the win even if all the momentum had shifted to the Thunder.

With a huge Game 6 on the horizon, here are three takeaways from Oklahoma City's huge victory.

The Thunder were listless and appeared headed for defeat and playoff elimination on their own court on Tuesday when they trailed by 71-46 in the third quarter.

"A 20-point lead in the National Basketball Association is not safe, (and) especially against guys like Russell Westbrook and Paul George", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said, according to the Tulsa World.

Russell Westbrook led the Thunder to the third-largest comeback in playoff history on Wednesday, finishing an incredible Game 5 performance with 45 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and five 3-pointers. If not, Mitchell will return to OKC for Game 7 on Sunday. "We will watch the film and figure out what went wrong, but from my analysis right after the game, we just stopped getting back in transition and they just fed off of that". "We never quit. I can't pinpoint one thing we did wrong. But we're going home, we've got to be strong with confidence".

Jazz: Shot 57 percent in the first quarter to take a 34-29 lead.

Rubio hit a three early in the fourth to keep the Jazz close, and then four straight points (a slick bucket in the lane by Mitchell and a putback slam by Gobert) gave Utah a 91-90 lead with 6:38 left in the fourth quarter. Mitchell made all four free throws, and Utah led 56-41 at the break.

Karl-Anthony Towns led the Timberwolves with 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Jamal Crawford added 20 points off the bench. George made a 3-pointer at the first-quarter buzzer.
