Russell Westbrook was typically great on Sunday afternoon, scoring 36 points and making several key plays down the stretch in an Oklahoma City win over the Bulls. This was one of them: he stole a pass from Nikola Mirotic at one end, and blew through Chicago’s defenders all the way to the other end for a layup.

Westbrook finished with 36 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists in the Thunder’s 109-100 win. It was a huge win for the Thunder, as it moved them back into the eighth seed in the Western Conference. They lead New Orleans by half a game.
