Lakers’ Russell Westbrook complains that Thunder player fell late, after he was kicked out of the game

Los Angeles Lakers Superstar Russell Westbrook was sent off from the team’s loss to Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday evening after facing Darius Bazley with less than two seconds remaining.

As Thunder was closing out the match, Bazley stole the pass and put an exclamation point on victory with a fierce dunk. Westbrook did not like that his opponent was showing him and wasting the rest of his energy facing Bazley.

“Don’t do that,” Westbrook yelled at Paisley, then later said he had an “old school” mentality about never showing opponents.

“We’re old school,” Westbrook said. “When it happens like this, I don’t let it slide. I take it on my chin and move on. In basketball, there are certain things you don’t do. There are certain things you don’t do in sports. The game is already over and I don’t like it. It’s as simple as that.”

Bazley scored 20 points which helped the Lakers score 2-3 points to start the year.

“It’s a 48-minute match,” Basley’s teammate Shay Giljus Alexander said after the match. “More crazier things happened…so we knew it was possible. I came back myself from almost a huge deficit, so I knew it was possible. Just keep on track. Every game, every moment throughout the season.”
