Watch Russell Westbrook nutmeg Cory Joseph for an assist from halfcourt (VIDEO)

1 Comment

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook is averaging a triple-double this season, so it would stand that he should have a few show-stopping passes on his highlight reel. But what happened when the Thunder took on the Toronto Raptors on Thursday might be the one that tops the list for most folks.

On a fastbreak opportunity, Westbrook wound up and nutmegged Toronto’s Cory Joseph. From halfcourt.

Via Twitter:

Your eyes do not decieve you. Freeze frame of the play indeed confirms that Westbrook passed through Joseph’s legs to get Victor Oladipo a bucket.

It might also confirm that he’s not human. Still checking on that.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Hawks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. kneed in the groin while defending 76ers (video)

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
