VIDEO: Russell Westbrook denies Nuggets' mascot half-court shot

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

You KNOW Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook is locked in to this game when he's goaltending the backwards halfcourt heaves of the other team's mascot. In the fourth quarter of the incredible game between the Denver Nuggets and the Thunder, Rocky the Nuggets' mascot attempted a halfcourt shot he LOVES to heave over his head.

Westbrook hopped up and goaltended the first attempt. Then Rocky attempted a second attempt and Westbrook snatched that one, too. This sent the crowd into a frenzy because if he hits that, the crowd gets free queso.

The Nuggets blew a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter and the crowd seemed more upset about the queso for a couple of minutes. Westbrook then hit a big 3-pointer to help send the game into overtime.

The NBA is FANtastic!
