James Harden

Russell Westbrook takes shot at Patrick Beverley

Wednesday night’s Houston Rockets-LA Clippers game proved to be entertaining on many levels.

James Harden scored 47 points in the 102-93 win, while Austin Rivers managed to get his dad Doc a technical foul. On top of that, Patrick Beverley fouled out, leading Russell Westbrook to take a shot at his counterpart after the game.

Westbrook dismissed Beverley’s reputation for being a defensive stopper, saying the guard tricked everyone into thinking he was good on defense.

Beverley was asked about Westbrook’s comments but declined to engage.

Harden went for 47 points and the Clippers lost. There wasn’t much for Beverley to be able to say except, “hey, it’s November. Call me if this happens in the playoffs.”

Plus, maybe he didn’t want to get into it because despite the loss, the numbers showed Beverley actually did shut down Harden when defending him.

Just don’t expect Beverley to make his teammates look bad by pointing that out.
