Nobody ever wants to see a NBA player get hurt…actually, that’s not true. I don’t and most people don’t, but to be honest, a big chunk of the population would love to see certain athletes suffer an injury or worse.
Look no further than Zaza Pachulia for an example. The almost All-Star starter has been on a most hated list for years and after the Kawhi Leonard’s series-changing injury in GM1 that even close-out master Bruce Bowen said looked intentional, I’ve seen more bad wishes posted about Zaza since, probably, Kevin Durant joined the Warriors or when the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead or when Draymond Green kicked…you get the point.
Well, in Game 2, the karma and savage basketball Gods teamed up to cause a heel injury to Zaza Pachulia. The injury supposedly happened near the nine-minute mark of the first quarter, when Zaza awkwardly landed after a light dunk on Danny Green. He played a few more minutes until being taken out for X-rays, which reportedly came back clear. A MRI is scheduled for Wednesday.
Without Zaza, the Warriors were just fine against the Kawhi-less Spurs and came away with a 136-100 victory.
