Russell Westbrook with the dunk of the playoffs

Russell Westbrook is a robot. I'm convinced of it.

That's the only explanation for the kind of elevation Westbrook got in the first quarter of Thursday night's Game 5 in San Antonio. The Thunder guard gave a hesitation move on Kawhi Leonard and drove to his left, found space in the paint and then elevated for what might just be the dunk of the playoffs.

Remember: This is a man who has had three knee surgeries since April of 2013. Maybe I should have a knee surgery so I can dunk, too.
