In a viral video captured at Game 1 of the Clippers-Suns first-round matchup on Sunday night, NBA superstar Russell Westbrook was seen engaged in a heated confrontation with a fan at the Footprint Center in Phoenix. The footage shows Westbrook repeatedly telling the Suns fan to “watch your mouth, motherf***er.”
It is unclear what led to the altercation, but according to a Suns insider, visiting players have been passing through the club area where the incident occurred all season to get to the visitor’s locker room.
Despite his struggle to hit shots throughout the game, Westbrook was a force to be reckoned with on the glass, securing ten rebounds and making the game’s defensive play by blocking Devin Booker’s shot and sealing the deal for the Clippers.
As the Clippers prepare to face the Suns again in Game 2 on Tuesday, the incident has sparked debate among fans and analysts alike, with many wondering if Westbrook will face any disciplinary action from the league.
