Thunder teammates Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant got into a shouting match on the bench during a second-quarter timeout of Oklahoma City’s 98-95 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, the Oklahoman reported Wednesday.
Westbrook, the newspaper reported, got upset when with 3½ minutes left in the second quarter, he drove into the lane and passed the ball out to Thabo Sefolosha in the corner. Sefolosha did not shoot an open 3-pointer. Westbrook, the newspaper reported, yelled to Sefolosha to “shoot the (expletive) ball.”
Teammates tried to calm Westbrook but his anger spilled over during a timeout a minute later.
Durant tried to talk to Westbrook during the timeout but, instead, the two began yelling at each other and were separated, the newspaper reported.
