VIDEO: Rockets’ Russell Westbrook tells Damian Lillard he can’t guard him after drawing a foul
The beef between Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook and Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is well documented. That beef culminated in last year’s playoffs when Lillard’s Blazers won in five games against Westbrook who was then with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Either way, it’s clear that these two players don’t exactly like each other. The two stars are constantly trying to one-up the other and prove they’re the better player — something they will let the other know any chance they get.
In the Rockets, Blazers matchup on Wednesday, Russell Westbrook had one of those moments. Backing down Lillard in the post, Westbrook went up for a layup only to be hacked by Lillard. Both frustrated and proud, Westbrook let it be known that Lillard can’t guard him.
