Westbrook scores 45; Thunder beat Jazz to avoid elimination

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Russell Westbrook unleashed the same fury he had in Game 4, just a little more efficiently this time.

Westbrook was controlled, and he was too much for Utah. Silent and serious, the reigning league MVP scored 33 of his 45 points in the second half, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from 25 points down to fight off elimination and beat the Jazz 107-99 in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

"It was win or go home," Westbrook said. "Regardless of what is going on in the game, you have to give yourself a chance to win, and I thought our guys did a good job of that tonight. They did an amazing job of sticking together."
