VIDEO: Rockets’ Russell Westbrook gets into it with fan, alerts security
With 38.6 ticks remaining in the first half, Westbrook alerted security and was pointing to a supposed heckling fan sitting courtside. The fan in question was not thrown out of the ball game but appeared to have received a stern warning.

An animated Russell Westbrook then returned to the playing court, as the Rockets held a four-point lead at the time, 59-54.
Westbrook, of course, is no stranger to fan altercations, figuring in a commotion with a heated Utah Jazz fan last year. The fan, who was accused of hurling racial abuse to the NBA star, has since been banned for life.
