The Warriors had a foul to give in the final seconds before half-time and future All-Star (SMH!) Zaza Pachulia got his money’s worth with a flagrant foul on Russell Westbrook. After a few seconds on the ground, Westbrook got up, punched Zaza (just kidding), hit two free-throws and then Enes Kanter hit a jumper to tie the game going into the half.
The Warriors took over the 2nd half, outscoring the Thunder 37-22 in the 3rd quarter and came away with a 121-100 victory. After the game, Westbrook, who finished with his 21st triple-double of the season, wasn’t too happy about Zaza’s hit.
“I’m going to get his ass back,” Said Westbrook. “I don’t play that game, I’m going to get his ass back. Whenever that is. I don’t know when that’s going to be but I don’t play that game.”
