Video: Russell Westbrook tells Andrew Harrison and Grizzlies fans to ‘go home’
Despite struggling mightily from the field, Russell Westbrook still had a big game, and managed to record a triple-double on Saturday. Finishing with 20 points, on 7-of-29 shooting, to go along with 11 rebounds and 14 assists, he led the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 102-101 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in overtime.
After making two free throws with 5.2 seconds left, the reigning MVP gave his team the lead for good, and won the road game.as Having the last laugh on the night Westbrook was then seen telling Andrew Harrison to “go home.” The two already figured in some trash talking earlier in the game, when his game-winning attempt in the dying seconds of regulation was blocked by the Grizzlies guard.

Time and time again, Russell Westbrook has proven that he rises to the occasion, and steps up his game when he’s needed the most by the Thunder. The exchange of words they had could’ve fired him up in overtime, and Andrew Harrison will have to think twice before engaging the six-time All-Star in such exchange next time.
The Thunder won for the fourth time in their last five games and are now ninth in the Western Conference with a 12-13 record. The Grizzlies on the other hand extended their losing skid to three, and have lost 14 of their last 15 games.
