Clippers, Patrick Beverley to host Rockets in rematch of last week’s showdown

first_img For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory “Hell no,” the 6-foot-1 Beverley said after stuffing the box score with a remarkable 14 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocked shots in the Clippers’ 107-104 overtime victory against Boston.“I can go out there and be Pat. You like me, you love me, I really don’t care. I’m here trying to win basketball games, man.”Besides, L.A. basketball fans might recall another of Beverley’s pearls last season, after the Clippers defeated the Lakers to all but eliminate them from playoff consideration: “Women lie, men lie, numbers don’t.”And last week, the numbers provided by the NBA’s player tracking data, did not support Westbrook’s account.Harden scored only four points when Beverley was defending him, and those came at the free-throw line. Otherwise, the league’s top scorer (38.4 points per game) was 0 for 4 while Beverley was stuck on his hip, harassing him and making his rush. Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Moreover, according to the basketball writer Kirk Goldsberry, formerly the vice president for strategic research for the San Antonio Spurs, Beverley rates as the top Harden defender over the past two seasons out of 54 players with at least 35 matchups against the Beard.Harden averaged only 11.1 points per 100 matchups with Beverley guarding him. Zach LaVine was the second-most effective, according to Goldsberry, giving up 14 points, followed by Wes Matthews (17.1), Dorian Finney-Smith (21.8) and David Nwaba (23.4).That aligns with another of Beverley’s proclamations: Defense, it’s what the Clippers intend to “hold our hat on.” The Houston Rockets will be in L.A. on Friday night for a rematch of a wild one last week in Texas, where there were five technical fouls, Clippers coach Doc Rivers was ejected (to the delight of his son Austin, the former Clipper and current Rocket), and the Clippers lost 102-93 on the eve of Paul George’s Clippers debut.Afterward, James Harden’s new Houston co-star Russell Westbrook made some pointed comments about his personal nemesis, Patrick Beverley: “Pat Bev trick y’all, man, like he playing defense,” Westbrook told reporters in Texas. “He don’t guard nobody, man. It’s just running around, doing nothing.”As evidence, Westbrook cited Harden’s scoring tally in the 102-93 victory: “All that commotion to get 47.”Beverley – who began this season talking at media day about exercising restraint: “You guys want me to be this guy in the corner … acting crazy, but I’m trying to harness that” – declined to respond to Westbrook’s jab either after the game on Nov. 13 or on Wednesday night, when he was asked about whether such remarks might serve as bulletin board motivation.
