Russell Westbrook Shoves Fan On Court After Thunder loss

"But it is what it is", Westbrook said. I thought once we made the adjustment, we put them on their heels. "But it is what it is".

Gary Harris scored a three-pointer in the final second to lift the Denver Nuggets to a 127-124 over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Four Nuggets players scored at least 15 points and Jamal Murray led the way with a team-high 33.

Westbrook extended an arm to push the fan away in an act deemed acceptable by the league.

But why didn't Westbrook follow Harris to the corner to begin with? Eight hours' worth of flight time in the past three days has likely added an extra layer of fatigue for this Thunder squad, but Head Coach Billy Donovan and his squad are shaking off any excuses.

After the shot went in, fans celebrated and one man ran up to confront the 2017 NBA MVP.

- On Thursday the National Basketball Association announced that George was selected to participate in three-point contest at All Star 2018 in Los Angeles. The Pistons haven't had much time to work with him, but they were clearly a better team when he played against the Grizzlies. "Really, really great find from Jokic". He did not, however, say he had called for a switch, which would be an explanation for Westbrook staying in the lane before Grant ever fell. A Thunder starter didn't shoot a free throw until 3:25 in the third quarter, Denver determined to make Westbrook drive and kick. Then an illegal screen by Karl-Anthony Towns led to Andrew Wiggins hitting a dagger to win the game?

As the Santa Fe SUV is the largest model Hyundai now sells, it's important to retain a family-friendly focus with the new model. The U.S. sales of the aging Santa Fe climbed 1.5 percent previous year even as U.S. industry SUV and truck sales rose 4 percent.

"Ball side is where you want to be". There's no reason any fan should be on the court after a game, and especially not after one as chaotic and emotional as that one. Harris knocked down a quick three-pointer, and pull-up jump shot to score the Nuggets first five points of the evening. TNT camera crews caught the interaction on video.

Security and teammates quickly intervened.

Arena security removed the fan - a partial season-ticket holder - from the court.

"Got to be able to protect the players", Westbrook told media after the match. You play the game. "You play the game, the fans obviously enjoy the game, but they can't come onto the floor". "I knew (Westbrook) was running at me", Harris said.

I find myself smiling when I watch him just from the raw emotion he exudes.
