Published Add your comment

Russell Westbrook throws down a nasty slam dunk to open the affairs between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Westbrook takes the opening steal of the game and races to the hoop for the big time jam in front of the home crowd Thunder fans.

Back in March, the Thunder and the Lakers collided in Los Angeles and to everyone's astonishment the underdog Lakers came away with a 114-110 victory.

Westbrook, who played college ball at UCLA, admitted that he marked the return match-up on his calendar and he certainly looked ready to play as he took to the hardwood.

It didn't take long for the electrifying point guard to show everyone his incredible leaping ability as he took the first play of the game to stage his dunking prowess.

The Thunder will be looking for revenge over the Lakers as they continue their mission towards securing the number one seed in the Western Conference which is currently held by the San Antonio Spurs.
