Russell Westbrook enjoyed the last laugh against Joel Embiid without smiling.
The Oklahoma City Thunder superstar coldly stared down the Philadelphia 76ers center Sunday night during the teams’ high-profile matchup. Westbrook’s glare was apparent payback for Embiid’s monster dunk on him in the first quarter.
However, Westbrook had the best response to Embiid’s dunk: fueling the Thunder’s 122-112 win with 37 points, nine rebounds and 14 assists. And as the clock ran out in the fourth quarter, he stared down the Sixers’ bench while focusing on Embiid — much to the internet’s delight.
Who knew world-class trash talk doesn’t necessarily involve words?
