Patrick Beverley tried to guard LeBron James on several occasions during Sunday’s clash between the Lakers and the Clippers. It’s fair to say that didn’t go well for Bev, as LeBron showed his dominance once again and took the Lakers to beat the Clips, 112-103.
He finished with 28 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds, keeping his good moment after beating the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. After the good display by LeBron, Beverley was asked if it was a challenge to guard the 3x NBA champion, as to what he replied with ‘no challenge. Not hard at all’.
Well, that’s not what NBA fans believe, as they took to Twitter to mock Beverley and his attempts to guard Bron throughout the game.
He can act as hard as he wants, but there is no doubt LeBron was too much for Beverley and that was more visible in the last minutes of the game. LeBron scored 12 points in the 4th quarter to confirm the Lakers' victory in one of the most important duels of the campaign for both teams.
