Russell Westbrook’s brother on Thunder: ‘We need a new coach’

Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook’s brother Ray had a Marcus Vick moment while watching the Oklahoma City Thunder fall behind against the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 3 of their playoff series on Thursday night.

With the Thunder down 71-54 in the third quarter, Westbrook was pulled for Reggie Jackson after missing a 3-pointer and committing a charge on consecutive possessions. That didn’t sit well with Ray, who tweeted the following:

Ray quickly deleted the tweet, but the damage had already been done.

Russ finally re-entered the game with 7:43 left and his team down 81-64. They quickly went on a 7-0 run.

I’ve never been a big fan of Scott Brooks, so I agree with you, Ray. And anyone who thinks the Thunder are better off without Russ or when Russ plays less is crazy.

    As if the coach said “hey guys….we’re down by three with thirty seconds left. Screw this ‘working our way back into the game s**t…… Russell, just run down court and jack up a three”

    I guess it was Brooks who shot 9-26 last night instead of Westbrook.
