It started with Joel Embiid's huge dunk on Russell Westbrook when the Philadelphia 76ers visited the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.

That big dunk just lit the fuse between the two teams. The Sixers may have had the early momentum, but Westbrook was not about to let Embiid and his Philadelphia teammates come into Oklahoma City and get a win.

The Thunder came away with a 122-112 victory, and Westbrook had a monster game with 37 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds.

Westbrook put the finishing touches on the game, as he appeared to stare at Embiid as he dribbled out the clock.
