Russell Westbrook, Nene ejected after shoving each other

Nov 10, 2013, 10:22 PM EDT

Russell Westbrook and Nene had a run in earlier in the Thunder/Wizards game Sunday night — Nene blocked a Westbrook shot, talked a lot of smack, walked up to do more and the refs went with the lame double technical.

Then the incident happened late in the fourth quarter — Westbrook recklessly charged into the lane as he is wont to do, Al Harrington stood his ground and got the charge, and Harrington went to the ground with Westbrook over him. Then Nene shoved Westbrook to get him off the top of Harrington, knocking Westbrook down, so Nene could help his teammate up. An angry Westbrook got up and shoved Nene back.

Both got technicals and ejected.

Both can likely expect a league mandated vacation night for this incident (or at least some healthy fines).

Without Westbrook Kevin Durant led a comeback to send the game to overtime, then the Thunder found a way to win 106-105 in OT.

    I love how completely bias some commentators can be sometimes. In each replay its obvious the Nene pushes Westbrook yet they keep stating that Westbrook just inadvertently falls because of Harrington and then are completely shocked when Nene gets ejected. Just call the game as it is. Just because you’re the commentators for that area doesn’t mean you have blindly support the team.

      Washington Wizard writes these commentators checks, of course they are going to be partial to the Wizards.

      To be fair dude i didn’t see what nene did at first, don’t think they did either, well one of em

        It seemed to me that Nene just pushed Westbrook out of the way to get to Harrington.

        Seems ridiculous, but whatever, I’m not a ref.

    Westbrook needs a punch in the nose. He’s such a prick.

    Love that Nene didn’t even move in the slightest to westbooks “push”

    I was saying the same thing about the announcers at first, but they corrected themselves when they watched the last replay…both of the double techs were deserved; Westbrook really needs to learn how to keep his temper in check
