Hey Russell Westbrook, you realize you’re pretty much never going to get that call, right?

He tried. Westbrook was coming up the court with just under 2:30 left in the second quarter and Gary Neal steps up to apply some early pressure. And Westbrook — who was in a gunner mode for long stretches of this game — thought he could get the foul call and so he took an ill-advised halfcourt shot. Again, you are just never going to get that call.

Westbrook shot 11-of-27 for 25 points on the night.
