Russell Westbrook could face suspension, fine after getting 16th technical of season

‘My kids fave player Kleber’ – Nowitzki after passing Chamberlain for 6th all-time scorer

Russell Westbrook could be facing a suspension and a fine.

The Thunder star received his 16th technical foul of the season when he bumped into Warriors guard Klay Thompson on Saturday (Sunday in Manila).

If the league doesn’t rescind Westbrook’s technical, he will be suspended for one game and fined $5,000.

The 30-year-old point guard is averaging a triple-double for the third consecutive season. His 23.2 points, 11.1 rebounds and 10.5 assists per contest has helped Oklahoma City reach a 42-27 record entering Saturday, which is good for fifth in the Western Conference standings.

The Thunder are 5-7 since the All-Star break, and they could miss out on home-court advantage in the playoffs if things don’t shape up soon. Missing Westbrook certainly won’t help this effort.
