WATCH: Russell Westbrook uses opponent to inbound pass, drains shot

By Jesse Reed

Russell Westbrook has been known to be quite creative on the hardcourt, but he may have outdone himself on Sunday night.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were hosting the Utah Jazz Sunday night, and during the second quarter of the game Westbrook made one of the top plays of the young season when he inbounded the ball off Jazz guard Rodney Hood and then drained the shot.

Yes, that’s a legal play, and the shot counted.

Unbelievably, Westbrook bounced the ball off Hood’s foot right back to himself for the tremendous highlight-reel play.

The Thunder went on to win the game in overtime by a score of 108-98 to improve to 15-8 on the season.
