Craig Sager post-game interview w/Russell Westbrook
Craig Sager: Well thanks, E.J. Uh Russell, after a long road trip, the longest of the season in which you went 3 and 3, how eager were you guys to get back on the court tonight as evidenced by your great start?
Russell Westbrook: Very. I think our fans did a good job of just staying with us. They were loud tonight and everybody just came ready to play.
Sager: Everything was going your way, you had a big lead, all of a sudden in the third quarter, words were exchanged. What got you so upset?
Westbrook: Uh, nothing, just a little miscommunication.
Sager: Between you and Thabo?
Westbrook: Nooo, just a miscommunication.
Sager: I know that happens once in a while and all’s well that ends up well, but at times do you think you need to control your temper more?
Westbrook: I control it like a man, like I did.
Sager: What does that mean? (pause) Put it behind you and go ahead and win?
Westbrook: If that’s what you say, bruh.
Sager: All right, thanks, back to you, EJ.
Editor’s note: I think he also should have asked him if he borrowed his sweatshirt from Pebbles Flintstone or Bam Bam Rubble. That thing is spectacular.
