Now this is what you call a dagger! Up by three with 5.5 seconds left in regulation, Russell Westbrook killed Clint Capella with a lefty dunk and killed any chances of his former bearded teammate of getting a victory in OKC.
“Just happy it’s not me,” he said. “That’s pretty much like the only thing is `Thank goodness he’s on my team.’ That was crazy. Honestly, he did a good job, Capela. Nice little bit of defense, honestly. Verticality, avoided the foul, and obviously, he’s (Westbrook) just a really athletic dude. Just caught him.”
Not only is Beastbrook really athletic, he’s also…amphibious?
The AMBIDEXTROUS Westbrook finished the night with 30 points, 9 assists and 7 boards in the two-point victory, ending a four game losing streak.
