The Warriors’ Klay Thompson and Zaza Pachulia have a strong and entertaining friendship going. It’s been going on for some time already, since Golden state is a tight-knit team, but it seems like fans are getting to see it a lot better this postseason, starting after Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals.
The Warriors beat the Jazz in that game. However, Thompson finished with only six points, while Pachulia finished with seven points. Pachulia made fun about it.
Zaza, as he finishes his press conference: "I finished w more points than Klay did."

Then, Pachulia posted this on Instagram:
On Friday, in front of all media at practice, Pachulia additionally rubbed in the facet the he scored more points in that one game by giving Thompson this framed fake newspaper. It says, “HELL FREEZES OVER, Pachulia outscores Thompson.” Plus, the box score is included.
This is funny because of the headline, and because Thompson is known to really enjoy reading newspapers.

After that, Thompson got back at Pachulia by sharing a photo from a fishing trip they went on together. He holds up two decent-sized fish, while Pachulia holds up tiny anchovies. Pachulia says it’s a “Photoshop.”
There’s another photo of the fishing trip that was posted on Thursday by Thompson’s brother, Mychel, who wrote, “Nice day fishing with the bros, one of these dudes holding my fish, but I’m not snitching 😒lol”
Im honestly looking forward to more hilarious pranks and jokes between this two.
