Russell Westbrook got off on the wrong foot prior to the Thunder’s Christmas Day loss to the Rockets.
During warmups he accidentally took out the National Anthem singer and it was all downhill for OKC from there.
Westbrook had himself a decent game. He dropped 21 points and came a rebound and an assist away from a triple-double.
With that said Westbrook would have been much happier with a win than a triple-double. We’re not saying taking out the singer had anything to do with it, but the deathstare while holding his back might have.
