Patrick Beverley don’t care about a loss, he’s still going to talk trash about the other team.
The Los Angeles Clippers point guard credited the the Los Angeles Lakers for coming out “with a lot more juice” in their first win over the Clippers in 3 tries this season.
“We gotta give them a lot of credit,” Beverley said after Sunday’s 112-103 defeat. “… They took it personal … It’s one game. Of course, living in L.A., man, it’s hard to deal with this loss, but we have to wash it down the shower, keep getting better, and we will.”
His credit to the Lakers stopped there after a reporter asked him what kind of challenge LeBron James presented defensively.
“No challenge,” he scoffed twice.
He followed that up by saying it’s “not hard at all.”
Beverley only had 2 points on the night on 1-3 shooting as the team got outscored by 16 points with Beverley on the floor.
He did have a few chippy moments with LeBron while on the floort.
James finished the game with 28 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds in 35 minutes of action.
