The Denver Nuggets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night when Gary Harris hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer. But it was what happened after the buzzer that had fans buzzing.

As Westbrook was walking off the court, a Nuggets fan, who was on the court, yelled in Westbrook’s direction and moved in front of Westbrook’s path. As Westbrook approached the fan, he shoved him out of the way.

Clearly the fan was not in a place he should have been. Luckily for all involved, the fan did not react to the shove and security and other Thunder players quickly intervened.

As for the game itself, here is the buzzer-beater from Harris, which came with a generous 5-second count on the inbounds pass.
