Yet again, Zaza Pachulia and Russell Westbrook got tangled up in a controversial play.
With just over two minutes remaining in the third quarter on Saturday night, Westbrook missed a driving layup. As he came down, he fell to the floor with Nick Young.
While Westbrook was on the ground, an untouched Pachulia fell on the Thunder guard's legs.
After the game, Westbrook got into a contentious back-and-forth with reporters regarding the incident with Pachulia.
Reporter: Do you think it was intentional?
Westbrook: Did you see it? What'd it look like? Did anybody touch him? Yes or no? Oh, you didn't see it? But why you asking me about something you didn't see? Well, then if you didn't see it, don't ask me a question. Don't ask me dumb questions. Obviously it was intentional. Nobody touched him, he fell over my leg, tried to hurt me, but hey, that's how it go.
Reporter: Do you think that's something the league needs to look into?
Westbrook: Hey man, they'll see it and take a look at it. They'll see it.
Reporter: You've had a couple run-ins with Zaza. Do you think he's a dirty player?
Westbrook: Yeah, for sure. For sure.

Westbrook's teammate Paul George had some choice words for Pachulia after the Warriors' 112-80 win.
"You know Zaza. You know his history. Nobody pushed him. He aimed where he was going to fall. That's Zaza making a Zaza play. He's on the end of hurting a lot of guys," George told reporters.

Thunder players weren't the only ones to call out Pachulia for his actions on Saturday night. Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving posted a comment on a video of the play on Instagram.
"The league has to take a look at this man, that s*** is ridiculous!!" Irving wrote.

Last season, Pachulia stood over Westbrook after fouling him during a game at Oracle Arena.
