It doesn't matter whether it is game seven of the Western Conference finals or a preseason game against an under-strengthed Minnesota Timberwolves team, Russell Westbrook only plays one way.
The point guard is at full intensity all the time and showed it once again during the Oklahoma City Thunder's 112-94 win over their division rivals.
Westbrook, unsurprisingly, produced a double-double at the Chesapeake Energy Arena and came up with the second-best highlight play of the night in the third quarter.

With just over four minutes remaining, the five-time All-Star stripped Adreian Payne, ran the one-man fast break and threw down a vicious one-handed slam.
In typical Westbrook mode, he stared down Payne, who had tried to make amends for his error one defence.
The former UCLA star led all scorers with 26 points, shooting 10-21 from the field, and dished out 10 assists for his teammates.
It's not the first time Westbrook has gone full-throttle in a preseason game and it certainly brings an added element of excitement to what can usually be a mundane experience.
We can expect to see much more of this from the 27-year-old as the season goes on, and it's going to be brilliant.
