Russell Westbrook With The Popular Off-The-Rodney-Hood Buzzer Beater
How important is defensive vision in basketball? Well, you don't want to be an unwitting dupe in Russell Westbrook's last-second shot plans, so you;d better keep an eye on the rock.
Situation: Oklahoma City inbounding the ball under its own basket with 0.7 seconds remaining in the first half against the Jazz. Westrook, the inbounder, notices that Hood has his back to him. So he bounces the ball off Hood, catches it, and hits a buzzer-beating fadeaway jumper.
The Thunder, who were down 15 at the times, gathered momentum from the trickery and went on to beat Utah, 104-98.
Westbrook finished with 25 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.
