Metta World Peace, Russell Westbrook get tangled up in 1st half of Game 3

Metta World Peace and Russell Westbrook got into it a little in the first half of Game 3 between the Thunder and Lakers.

Westbrook hit the floor for a loose ball and didn’t take kindly to World Peace hovering over him trying to tie him up.

Westbrook overreacted to the contact from World Peace and it resulted in double technicals with Westbrook being more deserving of one.

The Thunder trail the Lakers 50-47 at halftime.

Westbrook leads the Thunder with 14 points and Kevin Durant has 13. James Harden provided a much needed lift off the bench and scored 12 points before coming out of the game after picking up his third foul.

The Thunder got down early and did a nice job to get back in the game. The game has the feel to it that it will go down to the wire.
