    Former Massachusetts governor and current Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney took on a new foe on Monday - Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.

    According to NBC Sports, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee was courtside in Salt Lake City when he was seen gleefully taunting Westbrook during a playoff game between the Thunder and the Utah Jazz.

    Westbrook had committed his fourth foul in the first half when Romney, wearing a customized "Romney" Jazz jersey, shouted "four" at the All Star as he left the court.

    The Jazz wound up winning the game to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. Westbrook never fouled out of the game.
