At least Kobe Bryant has Russell Westbrook's back.

With the Thunder fighting tooth and nail for a playoff birth, Westbrook dropped 54 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in a critical game against the Pacers on Sunday. His heroics couldn't prevent the Thunder from losing by 12 points, however, and they are now on the outside looking in on the playoff race with only two games remaining in the season.

While some of the public decided to harp on about how the Thunder superstar took 43 points to get his 54 points — in their defense, it did put him in a very exclusive club — fellow chucker and Lakers legend Bryant took to Twitter to share his point of view on the matter.

It's good to know, although not all that surprising, that Bryant is team #LetWestbrookBeWestbrook.
