Russell Westbrook and Derrick Jones Jr Scuffle After Westbrook Elbows Jones
I love the Bad Boy Suns! For the fourth game in a row, we had a little scuffle and some pushing and shoving from the young guns on the Phoenix Suns. This time it was Derrick Jones Jr aka Airplane Mode getting into it with Russell Westbrook after Beastbrook hit Jones in the face with an elbow on an offensive foul. Both players were whistled for techs and of course Baby Amar’e, Marquese Chriss, was the first one to run into the situation and tell Jones he’s too skinny to be fighting but I’m willing to fight anybody.
Jones did get a little payback moments later with this block on Westbrook. Actually, the block was Chriss too but the title of the following video said Jones and it made the story more interesting. Jones did make all three of his shots and has made 16 of his last 18 shots over a span of six games!
As for Westbrook, he didn’t do much in the loss to the Suns: 48 points, 17 rebounds, 9 assists and 3 steals.
