Russell Westbrook looks just fine.
In the fourth quarter against Dallas on Wednesday night, the explosive Oklahoma City point guard showed no signs of being limited by his surgically repaired right knee. After grabbing a defensive rebound under the basket, Westbrook went coast to coast, beating every Mavericks player down the court for a violent one-handed dunk.
"Mid-season form! He is back," ESPN's Mike Tirico said. The announcer wasn't the only one praising Westbrook after the dunk.
I'm sitting here watching the Mavs/Thunder game and Russell Westbrook looks like he hasn't lost a step or any of his explosiveness!

Westbrook, who tore the lateral meniscus in his right knee back in April and underwent two surgeries, finished with 22 points and four assists as the Thunder went on to win their second straight game since his surprising return.
"It's what we expect. That's who he is. He's an aggressive player. He's a talented player that has improved every year," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said after the game, via the Associated Press. "This is the guy that we all knew what he was going to do when he came back."
Throughout his five years in the NBA so far, Westbrook has made it nearly impossible to stop him when he gets out in transition. If Westbrook starts gaining speed on a fast break, that usually means he's about to throw down a monster dunk. Here are nine other fast break dunks from Westbrook.
