On the last day of the regular season, OKC Thunder resident highlight machine Russell Westbrook scoops up two turnovers for these two monster jams. Unfortunately for his squad and for eyeballs, those were the last two dunks we will see from Westbrook as OKC missed the playoffs.
“I thought we showed maturity,” said Russell Westbrook, who finished the season with a league-leading 28.1-point scoring average. “Obviously with the injuries and different things of that nature throughout the season a team could have easily given up. Obviously we made some changes and trades and different things like that. That could have been another excuse that we gave ourselves. But we never gave up. We competed all 82 games, and I’m proud of that.”
Alas….. Parting is such sweet sorrow.
