Pistons’ Zaza Pachulia tells former Warriors teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson they’re ruining the game
The Golden State Warriors are looking to dominate the league once again. After scoring 92 points in the first half and 149 for the game, one-time Warriors center Zaza Pachulia took to Twitter to let them know that he is “disappointed” in his former teammates.
Specifically, Pachulia was targeting the hot-shooting backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who scored a combined 75 points with the latter accounting for 52 points in only three quarters of play. On Monday, the Warriors took down the Chicago Bulls 149-124 during Thompson’s history-making barrage when he exploded for an NBA-record 14 three-pointers. He broke the record of 13 made threes held by Curry, the other half of the Warriors’ Splash Brothers.

Thompson set the record with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter and the Warriors ahead, 113-69. His teammates mobbed him in the ensuing timeout.

As for Curry, Pachulia included him in the tweet after the two-time Most Valuable Player racked up 51 points without playing in the fourth quarter of a game as well. The nine-year veteran accomplished the feat in only their second game of the 2017-18 season against the Washington Wizards. The Warriors obliterated the Wizards 144-122, the first time they scored more than 140 points this season.
Pachulia, now with the Detroit Pistons after the Warriors chose not to re-sign the free agent center during the summer, signed a deal one-year deal to play for the Motor City squad. He is playing for a team with a 4-1 record as the Pistons seek to get back into playoff contention after missing the postseason last year.
