Patrick Beverley has been in Durant's grill all season long.
Earlier today, we reported how Patrick Beverley has been a pain in Kevin Durant's side during the Los Angeles Clippers series against the Golden State Warriors. Durant and Beverley were ejected in game one and in game two, Durant continued to get hounded by Beverley. When asked about his approach to the game, Beverley had a diplomatic answer.
"I don't try to get in people's head man," Beverley said via NBC Sports Bay Area. "I can't help that people get irritated by me. It's not my fault. I go out there and I try to be the best defender on the f-g planet, consistently - (day) in and out, in and out. I take my role, I take my job, very seriously, and I do it for my teammates. I understand my role, and I understand how to get stops. KD is not an easy cover, but it's fun out there for sure."
Now, Beverley has provided a further update on his relationship with Durant, courtesy of TMZ. When asked if there is bad blood between the two, Beverley said there isn't.
"I don't got no beef with anybody," Beverley explained. "It's all fun, man. Just two good teams, two good players battling."
Both Beverley and Durant will battle it out again on Thursday when both teams in play in Los Angeles.
