Play-by-play data just says that “Russell Westbrook misses 31-foot three point jumper,” but I think we all know what really happened here — Russell Westbrook tried to be cute and use Gary Neal trying to foul him to reset the play as a way to get some cheap free throws, couldn’t and therefore had to settle for chucking up something more like a 40-footer with 18 seconds remaining on the shot clock. Nate Robinson calls it “the perfect shot.” Russell Westbrook just says, “#whynot.”
