Westbrook has testy encounter with fans in Utah

Westbrook has testy encounter with fans in Utah

Dennis Schroder scored 24 points, and Russell Westbrook had 23 points and 11 rebounds as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Utah Jazz 98-89 on Monday night in Salt Lake City.

Jazz security issued multiple warning cards to fans in the area and the team issued a postgame statement saying that it will be investigating the exchange between Westbrook and fans. He also spoke of verbal abuse he and teammates hear from spectators on the road.

Westbrook was fined $25,000 by the League for the incident, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.

"Players and fans have a shared responsibility to create a safe and respectful environment", the statement continued.

"Offensive and abusive behavior does not reflect the values of the Miller, family, our organization, and the community".

Westbrook's comments came after he says a fan told him to "Get down on [his] knees like you're used to". But just making sure I'm healthy and in the right mindset to go out there on the floor, that was my biggest goal.

Things get heated between Russell Westbrook and Utah Jazz fans again. And I think we can all agree that it's despicable.

Following last night's incident, Mitchell tweeted he was "personally hurt by the incident". I don't think it's fair to the players - not just to me, but I don't think it's fair to the players.

Late Monday, President Nicolas Maduro said on national television that progress had been made in restoring power in Venezuela. Last week Maduro claimed the United States was responsible for the blackout, leading to further tensions between the nations.

The Jazz are conducting an investigation into the matter, which Westbrook says flared up after he was told to "get down on my knees like I used to".

Keisel, who wishes Westbrook would have been more professional, has long believed the player to be classless. "That's heat.' I'm like, 'Well you're gonna need it" and then it turned".

"I don't confront fans, fans confront me", Westbrook told reporters after the Thunder's season-ending loss, including Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports.

Keisel claimed he didn't use any insults at Westbrook, but he took issue when Westbrook went after his female companion. "As much as I like to compete against Russ - and there's always a little trash talk between me and him - as a human being, I feel for him and I understand his reaction". "People pay money to watch us and feel like they can touch us or do whatever they want".

'We self-induced some of their runs, ' Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. No one is held accountable for their actions except for us.

During the game, an exchange between Westbrook and a fan sitting near the Thunder bench was taped and eventually found its way to Twitter via the Deseret News' Eric Woodyard.

Famously volatile National Basketball Association superstar Russell Westbrook went on a profanity-filled tirade during a Monday night National Basketball Association game, threatening an avowed MAGA and Donald Trump supporter who has a history of posting racist Tweets.

"I promise you. Everything I love".
