Video: Russell Westbrook gives LeBron James the business on a flagrant foul

By Matt Moore | NBA writer
Russell Westbrook gave LeBron James a scary flagrant foul in the second half of the Thunder's game in Miami Wednesday night. James broke loose for a steal and Westbrook caught up to him and then grabbed hold of him in flight.

It looked worse in full-speed than in slow-motion, but pay particular attention to not just his right hand bracing James' back, but the left hand grabing the left shoulder in mid-air and pulling downward. That's where things got scary. James came up holding his elbow but it didn't stop him on his way to 23 points in the first half.
