Watch: Russell Westbrook threatens Jazz fans amid altercation

Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook continues to have an extremely strained relationship with Utah Jazz fans and ventured into unprofessional territory on Monday night.

During the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 98-89 win over the Jazz, Westbrook got into it with some fans. He was captured on video by Jazz digital reporter Eric Woodyard threatening to f— up some fans.

The video contains profanity, so beware if you watch it.

Woodyard says the fans received warnings for their conduct but were not ejected from the game.

Jazz fans had been taunting Westbrook earlier in the game with “Westbrook sucks” chants.

Their issues are a continuation of what happened last season, when the Jazz beat the Thunder in a playoff series. Westbrook snapped at a Jazz fan during halftime of a playoff game. He also got aggressive with a fan after the game.

Westbrook is more sensitive to fan behavior than most and makes a point of trying to correct them when he feels they’re out of line. Saying things like he did on Monday is inappropriate though.
