Wha’ Happened?: Say ahhhhh

Oklahoma City Thunder 106, Dallas Mavericks 100
The big story of the night was Russell Westbrook sitting the entire fourth quarter while Eric Maynor finished the game. This isn’t a big deal for a lot of reasons. One, it doesn’t seem like any of the Thunder care — including Westbrook. Two, Westbrook played a pretty decent game through three, scoring 18 points on 7-15 shooting while adding three assists and four turnsies. It’s not like he played terrible and now Eric Maynor will usurp his position as Thunder point guard. Three, Russell Westbrook looked like he was genuinely smiling throughout the quarter. Smiling is good, except when it’s a Kobe fake smile. This was not that. No big deal. Oh, also, nice win for the Thunder.
