Russell Westbrook Will Not Allow You to Shoot on His Basket After the Whistle

Monday April 14th, 2014

Want to get some extra shooting practice after the whistle while playing against Russell Westbrook? Go to another court. During the fourth quarter of Sunday's game between the Thunder and the Pacers, Westbrook showed a remarkable amount of hustle in order to block two shots taken after the whistle by Pacers players. The second block caused him to take a pretty hard fall, but fortunately he wasn't hurt because that would definitely rank up there in terms of most ridiculous injuries of all-time. The Pacers eventually won the game despite Westbrook's strong defensive pressure on shots that didn't count.
