This should be getting more attention today because a) it saved the game for Oklahoma City and b) it was completely, totally ridiculous. Look at Russell Westbrook’s elevation. Look at his body control. Look at how he swipes perfectly at the ball and doesn’t foul.
Westbrook does a lot of absurd things in a basketball games — for better and for worse — but these type of plays are what tell you the story about him. He’s always going full out, always ready and willing to make that extra play.
The strange thing though? Evidently this wasn’t ruled a block as the official box score has Westbrook with zero for the game.
