Zaza Pachulia Says Russell Westbrook Calling Him a Dirty Player Is 'Childish'

After the game, Westbrook suggested that Pachulia fell over him on goal after Westbrook missed a basket in the third quarter and fell to the floor alongside Warriors guard Nick Young.

"For those hoping/wondering/expecting the National Basketball Association to discipline Zaza Pachulia in the wake of Saturday's incident with Russell Westbrook, I can report the National Basketball Association will not be taking any action against him".

According to Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post, Pachulia will not face any discipline from the league. Pachulia, who was standing nearby, fell on the ground landing on Westbrook's left leg. Westbrook immediately grabbed his left knee and shook his head in disbelief.

Marriyum says Shehbaz most suitable to lead PML-N
He was first elected as the PML-N president during exile in 2002, due to the registration of cases against Nawaz. The party nominated Sharif's younger brother Shahbaz Sharif for the post of acting President of the party.

The Kiwi center was asked if his Oklahoma City Thunder would feel the need to retaliate in the same way a starting pitcher would be tasked with pelting an opposing batter for a prior transgression of a brushback pitch or an intentional hit-by-pitch in a game. "But hey, that's how it goes", Westbrook added.

"I don't think Zaza's trying to hurt anybody", Durant said, per The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

Here's what Westbrook had to say after the incident.

The Bruins' fourth-line right winger against Buffalo was Noel Accieri, who has seven goals but just 87 games of experience. Gionta played collegiately at Boston College and is the Eagles' all-time leading scorer with 123 goals in 164 games.

Russ' teammate Paul George agreed with Westbrook's sentiment.

With several players piling in on Pachulia, teammate Kevin Durant has come out in defence of the 15-year man and disagrees that he was looking to hurt anybody. Nobody pushed him. He aimed his fall ... But I watched the tape. "He's on the end of hurting a lot of guys". I seen Nick's foot get caught up in Zaza's leg, it might've tripped him up a bit. I don't think he was trying to hurt Russ. "That's Zaza making a Zaza play".

Pachulia and Westbrook have also tangled before, the former knocking the Thunder star to the floor in a game last season.
