Russell Westbrook impressed Mike Trout with game-sealing three-pointer
Real recognizes real, especially when it comes to a fellow league MVP.
Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook went nuts in a 124-116 win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday, finishing with 43 points, 14 rebounds, and eight assists. Included in that was a clutch triple in the final minute that put the Thunder up for good. Westbrook’s shot also impressed Mike Trout, who is in town for spring training in Tempe, Ariz. and was in attendance at the game along with teammate Garrett Richards. The Los Angeles Angels star was seen on the TV broadcast nodding his head in approval at the cold-blooded three.
The 43 points were Westbrook’s second-highest scoring total of the season, so he definitely put in a show for his fellow superstar. The Brodie probably has reason to feel confident for the rest of the year too since Trout has proven to be something of a good luck charm with his presence lately.
