Westbrook might of just made the next episode of Shaqtin a Fool with this “heat check” from half court with 17 seconds on the shot clock. ¬†What actually happened was Westbrook was trying to get a foul call after some mid court contact but I’ve never seen a ref make that call in the 3rd quarter.

The best part of this video is watching Kendrick Perkins who is in such disbelief he doesn’t even bother getting back on defense.
