After the game, Pachulia insisted there was no malice intended, and said it was "really stupid" that anyone would think he slid underneath Leonard on objective with the intent to injure the Spurs' best player. Leonard also sat out the series-clinching 39-point win two nights later in Houston. But on a similar shot in the corner moments before the Pachulia foul, Leonard twisted his ankle on teammate David Lee, who was on the Spurs bench. Read More »
