In Game 2 against the Rockets, Russell Westbrook dropped 51 points, 10 rebounds, and 13 assist — the first 50-point triple-double ever in the playoffs.
The Thunder still lost. After the game, Westbrook didn’t want to talk about his historic night.
That comment cost him $15,000, as the league fined him for “inappropriate language during a postgame media interview.”
I’m sure if Westbrook were asked about the fine, his response would be similar to the one that got him in trouble in the first place.
Also, I’m pretty sure the media members in attendance were not offended. They’ve heard the language before.
Game 3 between the Rockets and Thunder is in Oklahoma City Friday.
