Patrick Beverley calls out Paul George over officiating criticisms

Russell Westbrook is no longer the only Oklahoma City Thunder star that Patrick Beverley has beef with.

The LA Clippers defeated the Thunder on Friday night by the final of 118-110. After the game, OKC forward Paul George, who fouled out of the contest after scoring just 15 points, had some pointed criticisms of the officiating. George was later fined for his comments.

On Saturday, Beverley, the Clippers guard, called out George on Twitter for his criticisms. He linked to a highlight reel of his defense on George during the game and clowned him for “tr[ying] to blame the refs.” Beverley also tagged George in a later tweet and said that he won the battle “plain and simple.”

For his part, George had this to say in response to Beverley’s boasts:

George also picked up a technical foul against the Clippers and was one of three Thunder players to foul out along with Westbrook and Steven Adams.

As for the 6-foot-1 Beverley, he has recently been asked to defend larger forwards with the Clippers’ lack of depth at the 3 spot thanks to injuries to Wilson Chandler and Luc Mbah a Moute plus the trade of Tobias Harris. Beverley did a similarly effective job on LeBron James in a win over the Lakers earlier in the week and had a lot to say after that game as well.
