Westbrook on Zaza Pachulia: 'He Tried to Hurt Me'

Warriors center Zaza Pachulia reportedly won't be disciplined for falling on Russell Westbrook's leg during the Warriors' 112-80 win over OKC on Saturday.

This was the second time Pachulia and Westbrook had a run-in. He went for the rebound, but got tangled up with Nick Young and fell to the floor under the basket.

Westbrook also said he thought Pachulia was a dirty player, and Paul George wasn't willing to pardon him, either. But I watched the tape.

Unsurprisingly, Steven Adams; who has taken a kick to the groin as graciously as a 6-foot-11 big man can, said no on-court retaliation would be needed from his team.

Indeed, Pachulia has earned the reputation of being a dirty player, whether he agrees with that designation or not.

What Do Analysts Say About Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (APC)
Evercore Wealth Mngmt Ltd holds 0.02% of its portfolio in Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:APC) for 7,953 shares. The difference between the expected and actual EPS was $0.15/share, which represents an Earnings surprise of 500%.

"Nobody touched me. He fell over my leg. He's on the end of hurting a lot of guys", George added. It might have tripped him up a bit.

"I think this latest incident with Westbrook looked dirtier than the closeout on Kawhi, but Zaza is relatively uncoordinated for an National Basketball Association player and it's hard to determine intent when a 6′ 11" 270-pound man falls to the floor. "And I'm glad Russ didn't get hurt from that". I don't think he was trying to hurt Russ. It's clear: "The foot-to-knee pulled Pachulia down, while the foot-to-foot made him awkwardly fall".

"You know Zaza, you know his history". Nobody pushed him. He aimed his fall. "That's Zaza making a Zaza play".

ESPN approached Pachulia, he didn't have anything to say. Pachulia and Westbrook had an incident last season in January.

Ultimately the National Basketball Association found that there was not enough evidence to punish Zaza for his latest controversial play, which was probably the right call. Until any movement is made, the Warriors stand by Pachulia.
