NBA rescinds Russell Westbrook's 16th technical foul
Russell Westbrook picked up a very costly technical foul Sunday -- his 16th this season -- but it was rescinded on Monday.
With 5:57 left in the Oklahoma City Thunder's game against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, Westbrook was whistled for a technical foul. He was arguing a call that went against him on the perimeter. Westbrook pleaded with the referees about the tech, but the call was made and it could have been costly.
Since it was Westbrook's 16th, he was due to be suspended for a game. Oklahoma City is outside of the playoff picture looking in, with just two games remaining on the schedule
Neither Westbrook nor OKC head coach Scott Brooks seemed overly concerned about the ramifications, via ESPN.
"I ain't got no view on it," Westbrook told reporters. "He called it and we'll move on from it."
Brooks said, "I'm pretty confident that one will be rescinded. That's not my decision, but I feel confident about it."

Can't really blame him for feeling that way. He must be happy with the league's decision, though.
