Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder are having a difficult go of it on the road against the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night.
How bad? The former NBA MVP actually scored two points for the home team. Below, you’ll see Russ going up against Nuggets center Nikola Jokic for a defensive rebound. The end result was Westbrook tipping it into the Nuggets’ hoop for a deuce.

Never mind that Westbrook went over Jokic’s back to tip the ball. That could be the focus for those of us who wouldn’t be fun at parties.
Rather, just look at how talented Russ is. He’s out here scoring points for the other team. Take that, James Harden.
