Russell Westbrook reacted to his altercation with Rajon Rondo during the game between the Hawks and the Wizards.

Westbrook took blame for the incident and said he had to control his emotions.

“Ah, sh**. Honestly, it’s more on me. I cannot allow myself to stoop down to anybody’s level. That’s not my character, who I am…I take full responsibility for all of that although I don’t agree with the 2nd T but that’s neither here nor there,” Westbrook told reporters, via Fred Katz of The Athletic.

Westbrook was ejected from the game against the Hawks with two technical fouls.
