Video: Russell Westbrook throws one down hard in Sacramento

I started thinking during this game that if there is one player in the NBA who could challenge Blake Griffin with a potential dunk of the year it’s Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook was named to the Western Conference All-Star team as a reserve earlier tonight and is having a fantastic season. This dunk against the Kings is the type of dunk that spoiled Thunder fans expect every game.

Right now with nine minutes left in the third quarter Westbrook has 17 points and the Thunder lead 63-59.
