Russell Westbrook Throws Down 2 Rim-Rattling Dunks in the 4th Quarter

It's a good thing Russell Westbrook has a good relationship with the rim, because after this jam, it might take serious offense.

With a third of the game's final quarter expired on Tuesday and the Oklahoma City Thunder down by three, the freakishly athletic point guard plowed past the Houston Rockets' Patrick Beverley and Dwight Howard, driving down the lane for an emphatic jam—celebratory grimace included.

And if onlooking former teammate James Harden had a nice view of No. 0's show the first time, he had a front-row seat six minutes later.

A two-point game with only a few minutes to go awoke the best in Westbrook.

Breaking up a poor pass from Harden to Donatas Motiejunas, the floor general sprinted down the court with three of his Thunder teammates flanking him.

He could have deferred to any one of them, but with only No. 13 standing between him and the basket, he opted to take it coast-to-coast, hammering the ball in with his right hand for two.

Westbrook finished with yet another triple-double.
