Russell Westbrook has been on a tear as of late as the Washington Wizards have won eight in a row and are now in the tenth seed in the Eastern Conference (the last play-in-tournament spot).
There had been a question mark about if Westbrook would suit up tonight, but the team announced that he would play against the Spurs.
