Russell Westbrook has popcorn dumped on him by fan while leaving court

Things went from bad to worse to just plain ugly for Russell Westbrook during the Washington Wizards’ first-round game Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Westbrook and the Wizards were losing big to the Philadelphia 76ers early in the fourth quarter when Westbrook twisted his right ankle badly enough that he had to leave the game. Then as he was being helped to the locker room, Westbrook appeared to have popcorn dumped on him from the stands above.

An irate Westbrook had to be restrained by Wizards team personnel and arena security. In video of the incident, Westbrook appears to point at someone in the stands above the tunnel. As the camera shot panned out, other fans can also be seen pointing at an alleged perpetrator. ESPN tweeted that a fan was ejected from the game.
