Russell Westbrook was headed back to the locker room after sustaining what appeared to be an ankle injury in the fourth quarter of Game 2 against the Sixers. 

But before he could get all the way into the tunnel, a Sixers fan hurled a box of popcorn at the Wizards star. He was not happy about it. 

After the incident, the in-arena announcer instructed fans not to throw objects of any kind onto the court. Whether the fan was ejected is unknown as of now. 

This isn't the first time a Wizards point guard had an issue with a Sixers fan. Just last season, Isaiah Thomas went into the stands to confront a fan who hurled curse words at him for making a free throw. 

It wasn't Westbrook's first issue with a Sixers fan either, as we've all seen the video of a fan standing up to give him the middle finger in the middle of a game in 2017.
