Watch Expert Troll Russell Westbrook Goaltend A Mascot's Backward, Half-Court Shot

At some point during every Nuggets home game, team mascot Rocky attempts to make a backward, half-court shot. The crowd gets into it, the scoreboard operator puts Rocky's half-court shooting percentage on the jumbotron for all to see, and Rocky hams it up on the rare occasion that he sinks one. It's kind of a thing.


Russell Westbrook, however, has no time for such tomfoolery, and decided to troll the entire Pepsi Center during last night's Thunder-Nuggets game when he goaltended a half-court attempt from Rocky that looked like it had a good chance of going in. A few minutes later, Westbrook added insult to injury by sinking a game-tying three-pointer that sent the game into overtime. Karma eventually won out, though, as the Nuggets came away with a 121-118 victory.
