Westbrook Earns 16th Technical, Suspension Coming

Zachary Low


After frustration over no foul call from some contact at the rim, Russell Westbrook picked up his 16th technical foul of the season on Saturday night against the Golden State Warriors.

Unless the technical foul is rescinded, Westbrook will be fined $5,000, and more importantly, he will be suspended for Monday night’s matchup against the Miami Heat.

The Thunder is jockeying for a better spot in the Western Conference standings to ensure home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, and if Westbrook has to sit, their job will be that much tougher.

  1. Question: Knowing the next tech would get him fined and suspended, does this mean Russ truly can’t control his emotions, or that he just doesn’t care?

    A suspension against Miami really shouldn’t matter but I’m worried about him keeping control when things get hairy in the playoffs.

    Talk me off the ledge.
