Russell Westbrook Blocked the Denver Nuggets Mascot Twice (Video)

The Denver Nuggets upset the OKC Thunder 121-118 last night.  It wasn't because of Russell Westbrook or Kevin Durant who both dropped 30+ points.  It might have had something to do with Westbrook wasting his time with the Nuggets mascot Rocky though.  Rocky took a couple no look shots during a break in play and Westbrook decided to block both shots.  Similar to what Kevin...
