On Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors hosted the Houston Rockets. What should have been a great showdown didn’t carry as much water without Steph Curry and Klay Thompson on the floor.
With the Warriors missing their two best players, the Rockets dominated from the opening whistle. However, it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for Houston, which saw one of its star players ejected from the game.
Officials ejected star point guard Russell Westbrook after he elbowed a Golden State player. Westbrook received a second technical foul after arguing the call, but he wasn’t done there.
After getting ejected, Westbrook decided to stare down the entire Warriors bench, namely Andrew Wiggins and Klay Thompson. Both Wiggins and Thompson couldn’t help but laugh as Westbrook stared into their souls.
Klay’s reaction went viral, as he just sat there with his hands in his pockets.
Here’s video of the play.
