Westbrook Vows To Retaliate On Pachulia For Hard Foul: ‘I’m Gonna Get His Ass Back’
So what was the highlight of the Warriors' 121-100 win over the Thunder on Wednesday night? To me it was the possession in which Russell Westbrook walked the ball down the court for six steps, forgetting to dribble the entire way (see below). But yours may be this:
Golden State center Zaza Pachulia was attempting to switch men on Westbrook, everyone got tangled and Zaza took him down hard. A flagrant 1 was called, and OKC got possession -- not three free throws, as the ESPN broadcast team so breathlessly hoped.
And after the game ... drama! Russ vows revenge, because he don't play that!

Zaza doesn't seem concerned:

Chances are Westbrook won't even remember this by tomorrow. After all, he forgot the rule where it says you have to dribble ...

Listen, Zaza is telling the truth when he says that none of this worries him. He resides in Turkey and was born in the former Soviet Union (Georgia), two areas of the world where children fight wolves and bears on their way to school, men lift abandoned cars for exercise and get to work by climbing cliffs like Andre the Giant in The Princess Bride.
But hey, it all makes good Twitter fodder:
