Nobody touched him, he fell on my leg, tried to hurt me. I slowed it down, and I saw some clips and pictures everywhere that Nick's leg got caught up in Zaza's leg. It did look - to the fans, to you, and I'm sure to (Westbrook) - it looked kinda like a weird play. "It was an unfortunate play, and I'm glad Russ didn't get hurt". "You know his history". Nobody pushed him. He aimed his fall ... "That's Zaza making a Zaza play". A lot of big guys are. "This s*** is ridiculous".
