Russell Westbrook could be suspended on Monday for the Thunder’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers after picking up his 16th technical foul of the season on Sunday against the Indiana Pacers.
Here are Kevin Durant’s thoughts on the matter:
That's some bullshit

Ed Malloy T’d up Westbrook, which is significant because the 16th technical of the season results in a suspension if it’s not rescinded.
The Thunder lost the game, too, 116-104. Westbrook did pour in 54 points on 21-43 shooting, but it wasn’t enough. C.J. Miles scored 30 for the Pacers.
With two games remaining in the season, the Thunder can ill-afford to lose Westbrook. Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka have already been ruled out for the rest of the season. The Thunder could be a game behind the New Orleans Pelicans if they beat the Houston Rockets today. The Pelicans hold the tiebreaker for the No. 8 seed in the West.
The Thunder end the season with games against Portland and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
