Detroit Pistons center Zaza Pachulia has been having fun at his former Warrior teammates' expense throughout the season.
On Tuesday night, Klay Thompson returned the favor.
After recording four dunks in the Warriors' win over the Nuggets, Thompson was asked if he's been keeping track of how many dunks both he and Pachulia have converted this season, a reference to their ongoing dunk competition dating back multiple seasons.

"I gotta be winning this year," Thompson responded.
When a reporter informed him the count is currently 11 to one in his favor, Thompson had a good chuckle.
"Ha! Good, I'm going to text him that. Right now, actually."
Text Pachulia he did, right then and there.
"You have one dunk. I have 11 this year. Pay me," Thompson recited his text aloud.
It was the latest clap back in a long line of humorous interactions between the two former teammates, and we'll undoubtedly hear Pachulia's retort before long.
Chances are he'll be more impressed with the four-dunk performance than Kevin Durant was, who mocked Thompson after the win, saying his dunks "don't look that good ... He's 6-7, he's gotta get higher than that."
Thompson, upon hearing Durant's critique, remained unbothered.
"It's about efficiency. Substance over style, you feel me?"
Guess that rules him out for the dunk contest this year. Darn.
