Russell Westbrook got technical for taunting Moe Harkless
Russell Westbrook had a game on Friday night and made sure to let all his opponents know it.
Westbrook scored 33 points in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 120-108 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. He taunted Damian Lillard with a couple of “rock the baby” celebrations. He also got into it with Moe Harkless in the final minute of the game.
Westbrook was yelling at the Portland forward repeatedly, calling him trash.

Westbrook was called for a technical foul for his treatment of Harkless. About 20 seconds later, Harkless was called for a tech himself. He then got ejected after tossing his headband.
The amount of friction between these teams is off the charts. Whether it’s Westbrook and Lillard going at it or other players, the drama surrounding Thunder-Blazers games is high. We can’t wait for Game 4 on Sunday.
