Zaza Pachulia To Face No Punishment For Falling On Westbrook

Golden State Warriors

The two teams met for the third time in the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season last Saturday, Feb. 24, where the Warriors won for the first time against the Thunder this regular season, 112-80.

Zaza Pachulia denied Russell Westbrook's claim that the center intentionally fell on him in an effort to injure him during Golden State's 112-80 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday and called the accusations "childish".

Pachulia has the reputation in the National Basketball Association of being a dirty player. 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. When asked if Pachulia played dirty, he did not hesitate to reply: "Yeah, for sure".

The church of the Holy Sepulchre , which attracts thousands of pilgrims each year, is one of Israel's most visited sites. Custody of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is shared by the Greek Orthodox, Armenian and Roman Catholic denominations.

"I don't think Zaza is trying to hurt anybody", Durant said after practice on Sunday, as reported by the Mercury News. Westbrook is seen on the play attempting to recover a rebound, but gets caught up with Young and Pachulia and falls to the court.

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

It does not help that Pachulia has a reputation for suspicious-looking plays. "It was an unfortunate play, I'm glad Russ didn't get hurt from it". I watched the tape, I saw Nick [Young's] foot getting caught up and hitting Zaza's leg and might have tripped him up a bit. "He tried to hurt me. He is clumsy, don't get me wrong, a lot of big guys are", Durant said.

Quite cleverly though when watching media the notches won't be used and the end result will be the more common 18:9 aspect ratio. You still get optical image stabilisation on the main sensor, too - so basically everything you could want from a phone camera .

"You know Zaza. You know his history", he noted, per Medina. Nobody pushed him. He aimed his fall.

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

Initial replays appeared to prove that Zaza may have done it on objective because of the slow nature of his fall.

They showed at that moment they see me as a friend and someone that did the best for the club and always respected the club. At the start of the season I thought United were more attack-minded but gradually they've come to play with less freedom.
