CJ McCollum sends great tweet about Russell Westbrook
Russell Westbrook went for 50 points on Sunday and hit a long buzzer-beater to give the Oklahoma City Thunder a win, but he didn’t just please his own fans with the shot and performance.
One of the consequences of the Thunder’s victory was that the Denver Nuggets were eliminated from the playoff race. Denver dropped to 38-42, two games behind the 40-40 Portland Trail Blazers, who clinched the 8th and final spot in the Western Conference playoffs.
Here’s what Portland guard CJ McCollum tweeted after Westbrook made his key shot (video here):
Thanks Russ … you the real MVP

Damian Lillard and Evan Turner added something similar:
Russ MVP bro.

Portland and Oklahoma City aren’t exactly friendly considering they’re competing in the standings, but on this day, the Blazers were big supporters of OKC.
