The Thunder and Sixers played a great game on Saturday, with the Thunder coming away with a 2 point win after Paul George hit a game-winning 4-point play in the final seconds.
But moments before that, Russell Westbrook got tangled up with Joel Embiid after the Sixers center drilled Westbrook with a football-like hit to stop a layup.

While no technical fouls were called, Embiid said after the game that the hit was not intentional. Westbrook, tho, took offense to it. When asked if he and Embiid were cool, Russ had this quick response:
Russell Westbrook on the foul from Joel Embiid, and then asked if they are “cool.” (Warning: language): pic.twitter.com/7i0ahyEFTH
