Russell Westbrook blocks shot during timeout and then eats it

NBA players love to shoot the ball after the whistle for whatever reason. As often as they love throwing up those meaningless shots, NBA players love to block them just as much.

So on Sunday against the Indiana Pacers, George Hill threw up a shot after the whistle and Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook went up to block it. He is successful  in getting it blocked, but he comes up short on the landing. He loses his balance when he grabs onto the net and instead of landing on his feet falls on his back but catches himself with his hands.

He is lucky he isn’t seriously injured.
