Video: Russell Westbrook ejected from Rockets-Warriors game

Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook got ejected from Thursday night’s Houston Rockets-Golden State Warriors game after getting into it with his opponents.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Westbrook followed up an Austin Rivers made layup by grabbing what he thought was the rebound. He elbowed Damion Lee and then challenged Lee by yelling at his opponent:

As if that weren’t enough, Westbrook then had words with many Warriors players — even ones on the bench.

Westbrook was called for a technical foul, which was his second of the game, triggering an ejection.

Westbrook had 21 points and 10 assists before being tossed. The Rockets guard is now up to 13 technical fouls on the season. If he gets three more, he would be suspended for a game.
