Late in the third quarter of the Warriors' 112-80 victory, Russell Westbrook drove to the basket and got tangled with Nick Young while battling for the rebound.

"Seriously?" Pachulia said with an incredulous tone. A second or so later, Pachulia also comes crashing down to the floor, and appears to possibly pause and target Westbrook's legs.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving believes the National Basketball Association should take a look at the way Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia fell into Russell Westbrook's legs Saturday night.

When asked by reporters after the game, Westbrook did not hold back. He fell over my leg, tried to hurt me.

Pachulia, however was not entertaining the criticism, dismissing the Thunder's reaction as "childish".

Westbrook's right foot hit Pachulia's leg from behind before he took a fall on Westbrook's legs. Pachulia in a game last season decked Westbrook coming off a screen and drew a flagrant foul and then stood over him. Leonard missed the rest of the playoffs with a left ankle injury.

"You know Zaza, you know his history, you know nobody pushed him", George said. "He aimed where he was going to fall", George said.
