Zaza Pachulia reportedly will not be punished for fall on Russell Westbrook
Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia will not be disciplined by the NBA for his fall on Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook accused Pachulia of landing on him with intent to injure, which Pachulia has denied. The NBA, it seems, has sided with his view of things.
For those hoping/wondering/expecting the NBA to discipline Zaza Pachulia in the wake of Saturday's incident with Russell Westbrook, I can report the NBA will not be taking any action against him. Pachulia and the Warriors play the Knicks at MSG tonight.

Ultimately, the NBA likely determined that there was nothing clear enough about the incident to justify taking action. That will come as a major disappointment to some players, who are clearly fed up with Pachulia’s actions.
