Russell Westbrook On Reggie Jackson Celebration: “I Don't Appreciate It"
DETROIT, Michigan - Russell Westbrook disapproved of his former teammate Reggie Jackson’s animated celebration after the Pistons 88-82 win over the Thunder Thursday night.
"Honestly, I think that was some real bulls---,” Westbrook said when asked about his thoughts on Jackson’s post game acts. “I don't appreciate it for our team and our organization. I don't like it at all. But it is what it is. We'll see him down the line. We’ll take care of that when we get there."
At the buzzer, Jackson moved along the sideline while waving at the crowd for an extended amount of time, he then proceeded to strut in front of the OKC bench, raised both hands and shot a hard stare.
Thunder coach Billy Donovan wasn’t down with Jackson’s antics either.
“I don’t know what that was for,” stated Donovan. “It’s only, ya know, one game and there’s a lot more to play.”
Both Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka were out resting during the matchup.
Westbrook finished with 24 points and six assists, but had rough shooting night, going 8-for-28 from the field. Enes Kanter was the only other Thunder player to score in double figures, wrapping with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
The loss snapped OKC’s eight-game winning streak, but the team will look to get another going when they host the Clippers on Thursday at 8:30 p.m.
