The Los Angeles Lakers are on the verge of eliminating the Houston Rockets in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs, but Russell Westbrook is going down swinging.
Westbrook reportedly got into it with the brother of Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo late in Saturday night’s game.
The Rockets guard reportedly had words with William Rondo, the brother of the longtime NBA guard. Security reportedly asked Rondo’s brother to leave the game.

Westbrook reportedly enjoyed seeing William Rondo get tossed, too.
“Russell Westbrook took the court after the timeout yelling ‘Where he at?’ as he looked for Rajon Rondo’s brother William,” NBA insider Chris Haynes tweeted.
