Kevin Durant may be the MVP of the league, but the MVP of Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals was undoubtedly Russell Westbrook.
You probably read about all the stats already. However, the guy didn’t just throw down a 40-point, 10-assist, five-rebound, five-steal, one-block performance. Westrbrook threw it down with an extra helping of swag, because he was on fire and he absolutely knew it.

There were three-pointers followed by pimp struts:
There were dunks followed by menacing stares:
