With less than five second left in the first half on Wednesday night, Zaza Pachulia collided with Russell Westbrook putting down a hard foul on Russell Westbrook.
As Westbrook fell on the floor in agony Pachulia stood over him and stares him down.
The reason is yet unclear, what happened before the play to cause this, but its logical to think there might be a bad blood here.
The foul was upgraded to a Flagrant 1, therefore Westbrook was given two shots and the Thunder received the ball back. The possession ended up being a four-point swing for the Thunder as Westbrook hit both free throws followed by a Kanter jumper.
After the hard foul, Pachulia stood over Westbrook, and Draymond Green walked over and clapped and high fives Pachulia.

After the game, Westbrook was asked about the incident. He replied:
“I don’t know. He hit me kind of hard, but it’s all right. I’m gonna get his ass back. Straight-up.
