Initially, he got fouled and was rewarded with two free throws but after the Lakers had no chill, and ended getting 3 back-to-back technical calls on them.  Carmelo Anthony got a technical foul for delaying the game as he walked over the painted area where Ball was about to take his shot. Then Westbrook got fouled for the same.

Russell Westbrook voiced his concern in the post-match conference and told the reporters,

“The ref was a little upset. I don’t know why, but he screamed at me, and I told him ‘don’t scream at me. I’m not your kid, I’ve got kids of my own. Don’t talk to me like I’m your child.’ So he gave me a tech.”

He further continued to add,

“I’m OK with that though. I understand there are heated moments, but we’re all grown men. And if I talk to you with respect, the refs should do the same.”

Russell answers ad shut everyone’s mouth when asked how does this whole bizarre situation conspire on the curt, with a two work response “Who won?”

Westbrook scored a triple-double against the Hornets with 17-12-14. Anthony Davis dropped 34 points with 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Carmelo Anthony scored 29 points with 3 rebounds and an assist against the Hornets.
