NBA playoffs 2017: Russell Westbrook clowns Rockets with MVP handle after block

Russell Westbrook was a beast on both ends of the floor on this play.

Russell Westbrook was a magician when he dribbled through three defenders in the first half of the Oklahoma City Thunder's NBA playoff game vs. the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

And that was after he blocked/stole an alley-oop attempt on the other end.


First, a spin move sent Lou Williams running in the wrong direction. Then, inside the top of the key, a behind-the-back move had Clint Capela running into a Steven Adams screen and taking Eric Gordon out of the picture.
