Russell Westbrook Passes To Himself Off Opponent’s Back, Hits Buzzer-Beater (Video)

Who needs teammates? Russell Westbrook sure doesn’t.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star made an incredible play Sunday in the team’s 104-98 comeback win over the Utah Jazz. The Thunder were down 51-36 at halftime with 0.7 seconds left, and Westbrook changed the mood by inbounding the ball off Jazz guard Rodney Hood’s back and hitting a jumper before the buzzer.

OKC rallied back over the next two quarters and took the game to overtime, where it eventually won. Westbrook ended the night with 25 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.
