Russell Westbrook shoots half-court shot with lots of time left on clock

This isn't the best display of clock awareness by Russell Westbrook here. He fires a half-court shot with 18 seconds on the shot clock. What was he thinking?

Well, it appears as though Russell Westbrook was trying to draw the foul and anticipate the contact. It's a decent idea, in theory. But I doubt it works very often. Westbrook doesn't get the call and, as a result, he ends up just looking silly as he launches a half-court shot.
