Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was reminded it's often best to get out of Russell Westbrook's way in transition during the third quarter of Monday's game between Charlotte and the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

With 6:02 remaining in the period, Westbrook accepted a pass from teammate Steven Adams before racing down the court with a dunk on his mind. 

Kidd-Gilchrist attempted to stop the 2016-17 NBA MVP, but Westbrook won the battle via a posterizing dunk that brought many home fans to their feet in appreciation. 

Westbrook's efforts couldn't prevent the Hornets from obtaining momentum, however, as the visitors scored the next 13 points.
