Russell Westbrook Player of the Game as Thunder defeat Lakers

Remember this guy?

Another emotional dunk by Russell Westbrook powered the Oklahoma Thunder to their first post-season win Thursday night, putting them 1-2 in their playoff series against the LA Lakers. Westbrook had 27 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists on his way to being named player of the game.

More highlights after the jump.

Eight of RW's 10 first-half points were at the rim, including two dunks as the Lakers led at the half 50-43.

In the second half RW showed his scoring versatility, including 10 clutch points in the fourth quarter as the Thunder pulled out the win. RW is averaging 23 ppg through three games against the Lakers. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Nice to see a Bruin excelling in the post-season.
