Russell Westbrook Goes Backdoor for Emphatic Dunk, Stares Down Cory Joseph

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIMay 28, 2014

As arguably the most athletic point guard in the NBA, Russell Westbrook can hammer home some pretty exciting slam dunks.

During the third quarter of Game 4 against the San Antonio Spurs, Westbrook was able to sneak by Cory Joseph on a backdoor cut to the rim, then throw down an impressive one-handed jam. After the dunk, Westbrook stared down his defender:

That wasn't the only big play from Westbrook in the quarter. Less than two minutes earlier, Westbrook hit this big three-pointer, then began strutting down the court:

After three quarters, Westbrook already had 30 points and 10 assists with the Thunder up, 83-67, so it's safe to say that the 25-year-old was on top of his game.
