WATCH: Russell Westbrook Inbounds Ball Off Rodney Hood’s Back, Hits Buzzer-Beater

by December 13, 2015

Russell Westbrook is not only one of the most ferociously athletic players in the NBA today, but he’s also one of the most creative. On Sunday against the Utah Jazz, Westbrook pulled out the move you see above, in which he inbounds the ball off the back of an oblivious Rodney Hood, catches it, turns and hits a buzzer-beating jumper—all in 0.07 seconds. Russ’ quick thinking and quicker release was fast enough to beat the halftime buzzer.

The officials reviewed the play from all angles but the bucket counted. Amazing. Only Russ, right?
