Found April 22, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Game 1 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and The Houston Rockets was a massacre. The Rockets got punched in the mouth, plain and simple. Of course there was a Russell Westbrook highlight. Towards the end of the third quarter, Russ put Rockets Patrick Beverly on skates.   Russell was charged with an offensive foul. Didn’t really matter, the Thunder were up by 20 at that point. Doesn’t Beverly remind you of when Shaggy and Scooby see a ghost and want to take off running but they just spin in the air for a second?   Hilarity. Game 2 is Wednesday.
