Russell Westbrook sends game to OT with steal in final seconds

Russell Westbrook is known as a gambler. Twitter explodes when he takes an ill-advised three-pointer. Or takes too many shots. Or generally does anything other than run the full length of the floor and dunk. And that's what he did on Tuesday night.

Down two points to the Memphis Grizzlies with 10 seconds left, Westbrook gambled again. He reached across Mike Conley Jr.'s chest as he drove to the right and poked the ball out of the Grizzlies point guard's hands. His runaway dunk tied the game, 90-90, with four seconds left, forcing overtime.

Russell Westbrook, you magnificent so-and-so.
