Thunder’s Russell Westbrook not worried about suspension

Russell Westbrook

The Oklahoma City Thunder are not in a good place right now. They’re currently down 3-1 to the Utah Jazz and they could be going home for a win-or-go-home Game 5 without two of their stars in Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams.

The NBA is reportedly reviewing one of the numerous incidents from last night’s Game 4 between the Thunder and Jazz, one in which Westbrook and Adams may abbe entered the court from the scorer’s table for an altercation prior to being subbed in.

During Tuesday afternoon’s practice back in Oklahoma City, Westbrook chimed in on the incident and gave his take on what happened. All in all, he’s not worried about being suspended.

Via Erik Horne of The Oklahoman:

“I definitely remmber the play,” said Westbrook. “I was at the scorer’s table waiting, foul went, the alarm blew, so I walked on the court. I was already in the game. Once I was in the game, they told me to wait because they were going to review it or whatever. Once they did that, obviously the altercation happened, and I was out on the floor.”

Westbrook is averaging 21.3 points, 11.8 rebounds, 8.3 assists, and 1.8 steals per game, but is shooting anabysmal 36.7 percent from the field as well as 21.4 percent from beyond the arc. Adams is averaging 9.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 0.8 blocks on 55.2 percent shooting from the field.

Game 5 between the Jazz and Thunder is on Wednesday night back in OKC.
