Thunder star Westbrook hit with one-game suspension

Golden State centre De Marcus Cousins going up for a basket as Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook defended during the first half at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Saturday. The Warriors won 110-88

Oklahoma City fans had been waiting for a chance to boo former Thunder Kevin Durant but he sat out with an injury.

That raised the hopes of the home fans, who felt their team could capitalise on the absence of the Warriors' second-highest scorer on 27.4 points this season. Obviously the OKC fanbase circles all Golden State games but this was the only one this season scheduled at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The Thunder star received his 16th technical foul of the season when he bumped into Warriors guard Klay Thompson on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). "So all things considered, really solid effort, knowing that if you give them momentum in this building, they are tough".

Russell Westbrook was just 2-for-16 from the field and missed all seven three-point attempts, finishing with 7 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists. When asked about the suspension after the game, Westbrook was not here for any of it, and played off the reporters by saying "next question" whenever they referenced the technical foul that got him suspended.
