The Oklahoma City Thunder are currently in the mists of a playoff spot in the wild Western Conference for the 8th seed. The New Orleans Pelicans are trying to also get the 8th seed too, as they hold the 3-1 tiebreaker over the Thunder. Oklahoma City is already without last season’s MVP Kevin Durant, and has dealt with Russell Westbrook missing time as well. Westbrook will more then likely miss the Thunder’s game versus the Blazers on Monday, due to picking up his 16th technical foul on the season, which is over the amount of technical allowed in a single season.

By NBA rules, he will be fined $5,000 and suspended for Oklahoma City's next game

Kevin Durant reacted to Westbrook’s 16th technical foul the way most Oklahoma City Thunder fans more then likely also reacted.
That's some bullshit

The Thunder most recently played without Westbrook on Tuesday when they lost to the Spurs. Westbrook is averaging 27.5 points, 8.6 assists, and 7.2 rebounds per game in 64 games for the Thunder this season.
