Kobe gives Westbrook a shoutout on Twitter

Following the Lakers’ 122-105 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kobe Bryant took to Twitter and gave credit where credit was due.

Bryant sent a tweet to Thunder’s Russell Westbrook, complimenting him on his performance.

“@russwest44 was cookin tonight. He’s got mamba blood runnin thru his veins . You gave it to me tonight lil bro. C u down the road!” Bryant tweeted.

Westbrook tallied a game-high 37 points and 10 rebounds, while Bryant scored 30, despite suffering from an ulnar-nerve contusion in his right elbow that briefly forced him out of the game.
