Video: Russell Westbrook’s Shammgod has James Harden dancing

Rockets, Russell Westbrook, James Harden

Houston Rockets superstar Russell Westbrook got fancy against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday, busting out a Shammgod crossover in the fourth quarter of their dominant 139-109 victory at the Toyota Center.

With the Rockets up by 33 points with 8:08 left in regulation, Westbrook toyed with Wolves defenders Jeff Teague and Naz Reid before converting on a difficult reverse lay-up.

Russ initially blew by Teague with a nifty behind the back dribble before fooling Reid with the crafty streetball move popularized by former NBA player God Shammgod.

Westbrook’s highlight got fellow superstar James Harden fired up, as “The Beard” brought out the banjo and busted out some moves from the Rockets’ bench.

The Rockets bounced back from Thursday’s setback against the Oklahoma City Thunder and improved their record to 26-12.

Russell Westbrook, who let frustrations get the better of him against his former team in their last game, came up with 30 points, 10 dimes, and six boards on Saturday. James Harden led the way with 32 points, 12 rebounds, and eight assists.

Following their win over the Timberwolves, the Rockets improved to 26-12 on the season.
