OKLAHOMA CITY – Russell Westbrook met on the left flute and swims Patrick Beverley. With a violent turn over his head, he moved the ball to the left and exploded with two dribbles at the rim. He blew past Beverley and lighted the ball from the back plate.
When the ball bounced up on him, Westbrook wiped his arms and rocked them back and forth and rocked the talkative baby. It’s a new celebration feature that he has drawn a few times this season and knocked it out earlier in the game after scoring over Avery Bradley. This, with defender Beverley, with some probable emphasis, Westbrook caused an extra little bit, even topped it with a goodnight kiss in the end.
