Russell Westbrook gets ejected for jawing with Warriors bench (video)




 

Russell Westbrook's rivalry with the Warriors really escalated with Kevin Durant leaving the Thunder for Oklahoma City. Durant is now with the Nets, and Westbrook is now with the Rockets. But other Warriors said things about Westbrook that still linger.

Westbrook's passion showed late in Houston's 135-105 win over Golden State last night.

Westbrook elbowed Damion Lee while going for a rebound. Then, Westbrook and Warriors on the bench - including Klay Thompson - exchanged words. As he returned to the Rockets' bench, Westbrook bumped into Looney. (Or Looney bumped into Westbrook, depending on your perspective.) Westbrook, who had a technical foul earlier in the game, received another and got ejected.

NBC Sports Bay Area:



Westbrook said he shouldn't have been the only player to receive a technical foul. Without hearing everything said on the court, I can't say either way. But, in an incident like that, it is surprising Golden State emerged unscathed.

Except for the loss.

Though even that isn't so bad.
