Russell Westbrook finished with 39 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists Thursday night vs. Phoenix, but the Thunder fell to the Suns 117-113 in overtime.
The win moved Phoenix to within 1 1/2 games of OKC for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. Anyways, late in the third quarter Westbrook walked to the bench and left teammate Kevin Durant hanging for a high five. This probably isn’t all that big of a deal. Westbrook’s head was down as he marched to an open seat on the bench. Durant, who missed the game and was in street clothes, also stuck is hand out a little late.
It’s an isolated, instantly forgettable moment in a series of thousands during the long, 82-game season … but since every moment of every game is now Vine’d for all eternity, it’s something that might get mentioned again down the road.
