Russell Westbrook Gets Into It With A Jazz Fan Who Heckled Him

Russell Westbrook got into a heated moment with a Jazz fan at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Monday night. At some point in the second quarter, Westbrook was captured on video yelling at the fan.

After the game, Westbrook told Thunder teammate Patrick Patterson what the fan said to trigger Westbrook, which involved the fan telling Westbrook to, ‘get down on your knees like you used to….’

The Jazz broadcast even interviewed the fan, who had this to say:

Westbrook also released a full statement about the situation later.

Russ has had a bad history with fans in Utah, and it culminated last season in the playoffs. Should these two teams match up in the postseason again, Jazz fans will surely do their best.
