Russell Westbrook and Jusuf Nurkic got into a little back-and-forth during Thursday night’s Thunder and Trail Blazers game. It ended with Westbrook lowering his shoulder and knocking Nurkic to the floor.
The move earned Westbrook a flagrant foul. That might have been Nurkic’s plan all along. The two got tangled up on the other end of the floor and Nurkic ended up tripping Westbrook.
That led to Westrboork paying him back by lowering his shoulder into him.
