The NBA has a hard rule during altercations: Any players who leave the bench area receives a one-game suspension. Intent doesn’t matter. It’s not negotiable. The league simply doesn’t want more players entering a fracas. Russell Westbrook found a gray area last night. The Thunder star was waiting to check into Oklahoma City’s Game 4 loss to the Jazz when Raymond Felton fouled Rudy Gobert, um, unpleasantly. Gobert and Felton got into it, though not immediately. Once they did, Westbrook walked onto the court, and he and Gobert swiped at each other.
On Friday against the Detroit Pistons, with his team down one with the ball, five seconds to go, Raymond Felton inbounded to Westbrook some 40 feet from the basket. With Avery Bradley latched to him, Westbrook took two dribbles and pulled up from 3, letting the ball fly with three seconds on the clock. It hit the rim twice, the rebound was tipped away and the Pistons handed the Oklahoma City Thunder another close loss, 99-98. “Yeah,” Westbrook said when asked if that was the shot he wanted. “In and out. Happens like that sometimes.”
