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. 

This past weekend, Romney failed to capture the Republican nomination for the Senate seat left up for grabs by outgoing Senator Orrin Hatch.

Romney is still a heavy favorite to win the seat.
