The Oklahoma City Thunder were eliminated last night in Game 5 against the Houston Rockets. Thunders’ Russell Westbrook and Rockets’ Patrick Beverly had a few altercations during the game as both are physical players.
After the game, Westbrook spoke about what was being said between him and Beverly:
“He was talking about how he was first team all defense, but I didn’t know what the hell he was talking about because I had 42 at a time in the series. Maybe he was dreaming or s–t, I don’t know.”
Westbrook scored 47 points but Beverly brought up how many shots Westbrook took:
“He looked up and said ‘no one can guard me. I got 40 points.’ I said, ‘That’s nice. You took 34 shots to get it. I’m not a player trying to bash anybody, but men lie, women lie, numbers don’t. Collectively as a unit, we’ve done a great job on it. Shoot enough shots and the numbers show.”
