Video: Russell Westbrook’s Huge Slam That Didn’t Count

It’s not often that you see a slam that totally pumps you up, ignites the crowd and doesn’t count. In the first quarter of Game 2 on Monday night between the Thunder and Grizzlies, Russell Westbrook got a full head of steam coming around a screen and absolutely ignited the rim with his slam.

Except, midway through his move, the whistle blew for an off-the-ball foul. No bucket. Doesn’t change Russell unleashed in the air, so we’re showing it to you anyway because as Russ has taught us, #WhyNot.

    From those angles it’s hard to tell, but was there a legit offensive foul? What a damn shame…

    Somebody not pictured in the shot had to have committed the foul.
