Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia better watch his back as the Western Conference finals head to San Antonio for Games 3 and 4.

After contributing to the re-aggravation of Kawhi Leonard's ankle, Pachulia can expect to be booed viciously by Spurs fans. His teammate Kevin Durant, though, is confident Pachulia won't be bothered by a hostile crowd.

"He's a 14-year veteran, grown-ass man with two kids," Durant told reporters Friday. "A couple of jokes thrown his way here and there, a couple of goons, I don't think that will rattle him at all.

"He knows we got his back. It's not that serious."

Spurs fans will not only speak with the aggravation of being down 0-2, but also with the blessing of Gregg Popovich, who blasted Pachulia for his actions. One Spurs fan even took it upon himself to launch a lawsuit against the Warriors' starting center.
