Sometimes when you're on the wrong end of a butt-kicking, and nothing is going your way, you tend to take out your frustration on the other team for no particular reason. In the middle of a horrific game, Russell Westbrook did just that, getting physical with both Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney. All the Warriors duo could do was laugh it off.

With all the tough guy bravado Russ brings to the game, the laughing in his face as his team is getting trampled had to be pretty emasculating.
Last night was one of those nights where Westbrook needs to burn the tape and start fresh. He picked up his 16th technical foul, which will earn him a one-game suspension.
His stats were just as bad. He scored a mere seven points on 2-16 shooting while going 0-7 from three. The Warriors ended up stomping the Thunder to the tune of 110-88. Ouch.

Westbrook will be back, and the Thunder will still be a problem in the playoffs, but last night was a horror show from every angle.
