Russell Westbrook Throws Down a Nasty Putback Dunk over Denver (Video)


Russell Westbrook isn’t known as one of those guys who lives above the rim, but he is known as a guy with boundless energy who finds himself all over the court, running circles around opposing players. Last night, he was hanging out OVER opposing players as he followed up a missed jumper with a nasty putback that was performed in a lot of traffic.

He’s got the uncanny ability to go into a crowd and walk out the other side unscathed, and early on in this season, he’s been using that talent to become the second-leading scorer, behind only Steph Curry.

And while Steph can shoot the jumper like no one else, this putback is classic Westbrook through and through.
