Russell Westbrook fined $15,000 for f-bomb after loss to Rockets

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook has been fined $15,000 for "using inappropriate language during a postgame media interview," the NBA announced today.

Westbrook made his comments following the Thunder's 115-111 loss to the Houston Rockets in Game 2 on Wednesday night.

Westbrook, who finished the game with an NBA playoff record 51-point, 13-assist, 10-rebound triple-double, was visibly upset after the loss, especially when asked about his stat line in the postgame press conference.


"I don't give a (expletive) about the line. We lost."

Westbrook carried his team throughout the game, but shot just four-for-18 in the fourth quarter.

The Thunder are down 2-0 in the first-round series, with a chance to get a much-needed win in Oklahoma City on Friday night.
