Russell Westbrook is having an MVP-type season, but he lost some fans in Milwaukee during Monday's loss to the Bucks. 

Late in the second quarter, Westbrook sunk a 3-pointer and flashed Aaron Rodgers' signature celebration, the discount double-check sign, which prompted the Milwaukee crowd to boo him. A quarter later, Westbrook was blocked by Giannis Antetokounmpo on a layup attempt, bringing the crowd to its feet.

The block also elicited a young fan in attendance to cover up his Westbrook jersey with an Antetokounmpo shirt, much to the enjoyment of the Bucks fans around him. At the end of the night, Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists, while Westbrook had 30 points but committed a key turnover with under a minute left to help seal the Bucks' 98-94 win. 

Stud of the night

With Dwyane Wade out of the lineup (knee), Jimmy Butler had a stellar game against the Hornets. Butler finished with 52 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists on 15-of-24 shooting. He made 21 of 22 free throws in the 118-111 win. 

Dud of the night

The Pelicans' bench shot just 29 percent from the floor in a 90-82 loss to the Cavaliers, and Tyreke Evans was to blame. Still recovering from knee surgery, Evans looked like he didn't belong on the court, making just 2 of 9 shots and registering a minus-20 and two turnovers i
