Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was fined $15,000 by the NBA following some choice language used in the post-game press conference for Game 2 of his game against the Houston Rockets, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.

The All-Star floor general had a historic 51-point, 10-rebound, 13-assist triple-double line in the loss, but claimed he didn’t “give a f*** about the line” since his team didn’t come out on top at the end of the night.

Westbrook will have more pressing issues than $15,000, namely figuring out how to even the series, starting tonight with his first game back at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

A win can very much build momentum, but he desperately needs a secondary scorer to step up, as he’s been a one-many army during his first two games and the Rockets have found ways to win in both games.
