Zaza Pachulia trolls Kevin Durant about Omri Casspi's 20 points


Programming note: Watch Wednesday's Warriors-Jazz game streaming live at 6 p.m. PT on the MyTeams app.

Omri Casspi scored a season-high 20 points Monday night against the Warriors (his previous high was 12).

Golden State won the game, 110-93, but Zaza Pachulia still felt the need to have some fun with his former teammate, Kevin Durant.

Pachulia, at 11:05 p.m. PT (which means it was 2:05 a.m. in Detroit), sent Durant the following text:

"Saw Omri kicked your a** tonight. 20 points in 21 minutes."

Durant's response: "Hahaha fu** u Z."

Zaza's answer: "Yeah and put this one on IG too if you want," followed by four of the "face with tears of joy" emojis.

Durant texted "I am" and posted a screenshot of the exchange on Instagram with the caption: "@zazapachulia wanted me to show ya'll this."

Earlier this month, Durant took to Instagram to let the world know that Zaza incorrectly wished him happy birthday (Durant's birthday is on Sept. 29).

But back to Casspi real quick -- he attempted four 3-pointers against the Warriors (he made two), bringing his season total for the Memphis Grizzlies to 25. Last year with Golden State, he took 22 in 53 games.

"Well if Omri had shot last year like he did tonight ..." Warriors coach Steve Kerr jokingly said to reporters after the game. "Omri was great tonight. He was killing us on his backcuts. For whatever reason he didn't shoot the 3s last year. This year, we got some guys who are more willing to shoot.

"Everyone's taking that as a shot ... it was a joke."
