Zaza Pachulia dismisses claims of him being dirty as ‘childish’

Zaza Pachulia Russell Westbrook

Zaza Pachulia dismissed claims made by the Oklahoma City Thunder after Saturday night’s game of him being a dirty player as “childish.”

Pachulia was seen diving on top of Thunder star guard Russell Westbrook late in the third quarter. Pachulia’s dive on top of Westbrook appeared to be completely unnecessary.

After the game, Westbrook said he thought it was intentional.

“Obviously it was intentional. Nobody touch me, he fell over my leg, tried to hurt me … that’s how it go,” Westbrook said of the play.

Asked if he thought Pachulia was a dirty player, Westbrook said, “Yeah, for sure.”

Westbrook’s Thunder teammate, Paul George, agreed that Pachulia fell on Westbrook intentionally.

Pachulia was confronted with the claims made by Thunder players that he is dirty. He dismissed it all as “childish” and said he wouldn’t respond.

Pachulia doesn’t want to respond because he knows it’s true.

His list of offenses is long.

– He took a groin swipe at Iman Shumpert in the NBA Finals
– He stepped under Kawhi Leonard in the Western Conference finals and injured him
– He smacked Luke Babbitt in the face
– He also has a history with Westbrook

Here is all the evidence you need to see to know about Pachulia:
