Russell Westbrook: Rockets ‘Who Don’t Play’ Were The Ones Laughing at Andre Roberson FT’s (VIDEO)
In the 4th quarter of Game 4 on Sunday, the Houston Rockets were intentionally fouling Andre Roberson, who is a terrible free throw shooter. And many Rockets’ players on the bench found it hilarious when he kept on missing.

On Monday, Russell Westbrook was asked about the Rockets players cracking up on the sideline. He suggested there was a reason those guys were on the sideline and not playing in the actual game.
“Probably the guys who don’t play are the ones over there laughing, if I had to guess,” Westbrook said.
Westbrook claims he didn’t see the players who were laughing at the time—a group that included Montrezl Harrell, Sam Dekker, and possibly an assistant coach. Roberson, on the other hand, is a putrid 2-of-17 from the free throw line in 4 games so far.
OKC will look to extend the series as they are down 3-1 heading into Game 5 on Tuesday.
