Yeah, we already blogged a Russ highlight from last night’s 105-103 OKC win over Houston. But who’s going to complain about a second one? You? Nah.
Westbrook went between Nenê’s legs on this third-quarter hanging layup, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen this move pulled off so in-the-flow of the drive. He didn’t overextend his carry and he didn’t break the rhythm of his dribble. He just went in one side and out the other, and as a result, it went unnoticed in the moment. The crowd didn’t react; the announcers didn’t mention it; TV showed no replay. But Nenê knew, putting his head down and jogging the other way. Oh yes, Nenê knew.
