Russell Westbrook furious with Zaza Pachulia Jersey: ‘He tried to hurt me’
March 7, 2018
Russell Westbrook accused Warriors center Zaza Pachulia of trying to hurt him on a play in the third quarter ot Golden State’s 112-80 win over the Thunder Saturday night.
The play in question came in the third quarter, with the Thunder trailing 75-66. Westbrook put up a short floater and missed. He went for the rebound, but got tangled up with Nick Young and fell to the floor under the basket.
Following the game, Westbrook vented his frustration, and seemed incredulous when a reporter asked him what happened on the play.
Thunder forward Paul George agreed Pachulia’s move appeared intentional.
You know Zaza, George said. You know his history. You know nobody pushed him. He aimed where he was gonna fall. That’s Zaza making a Zaza play. He’s on the end of hurting a lot of guys.
George isn’t the only other player who felt that way. Celtics guard Kyrie Irving checked in via instagram, saying, The league has to take a look at this, man. This sï¿½ï¿½ is ridiculous.
That bucket proved to be the game-winner for Miami, which is now 3 1/2 games ahead of the Pistons for the eighth seed in the East. It also capped a 15-point fourth quarter and a 27-point night for Wade.
It definitely felt good to be back in that environment, he told reporters, per the Miami Herald. It was good tonight to be back in that position.
