Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook had a game to forget in the loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday night, but he did produce this spectacular dunk.
OKC fell to a 100-85 loss to the Celtics at home which sees them slip to 6-4 for the season, while their Eastern Conference opponents improve to 5-4.
Westbrook will undoubtedly have enjoyed the dunk above, but he was left less than impressed with the suggestion that Celtics point guard Marcus Smart had gotten the better of him.
Smart scored a career-high 26 points, while in contrast Westbrook was held to 5-for-20 shooting as although he still scored 27 points, he was unable to carry the burden of the team in the absence of Kevin Durant due to a hamstring injury.
His frustration and competitive nature was evident in his post-game interview, when it was put to him that he may have struggled with Smart’s game.
“He had a good game,” he told reporters, as noted by ESPN. “Eighty-two games, I do this. Don’t get it twisted. Don’t get it twisted. He had a good game. We’ll see him again.”
The Celtics will look to make it three straight wins when they face the Houston Rockets on Monday night, while the Thunder will hope to bounce back against the Memphis Grizzlies.
