It didn’t take long for Russell Westbrook to start scoring and yelling against the Hawks. On the first bucket of the game, Westbrook scored on a layup and yelled “and one n***a” looking for the foul. The Thunder wouldn’t lead again until a Westbrook layup with two and half minutes left in the 4th quarter. A quarter that saw Westbrook score 17 of his 34 points.
Unfortunately Westbrook’s big quarter, along with his 11 boards and 7 dimes, wasn’t enough as Jeff Teague took over the final minutes and helped the Hawks pull off a 106-100 victory.
