This current season, Westbrook is on the Rockets and Beverley has found a home on the Clippers. In their very first game of this season, Harden would drop 47 points with Beverley guarding him from time to time. Actually that comes later on, but yeah. Westbrook himself had a pretty horrible game shooting 30% from the field on 20 points. Russ for the most part was guarded by Bev and so after the game, he was asked whether Bev’s defense was really that annoying. His response (trick y’all).
So going back to this play, some excused it for Beverley just being Beverley, injuring Westbrook after going for a ball.On March 11, 2014, after the whistle blows, Beverley puts his hands on Westbrook and of course Westbrook loses it. It makes sense, that was the same play that took Westbrook out for months and there was justifiable anger. Throughout the game there was just physical play. Throughout the years, it was more physical play. In the 2017 playoffs, there was a hard foul and you guessed it, more arguing. Westbrook mocking Bev had me dying.
It is true that Beverley would scream out 1st team all defense randomly so Russ was pretty much mocking that saying he had 42 on him.
That was the first real time they trash talked each other and not just some yelling out of anger. But they wouldn’t play until a whole year later so nothing would really escalate and no real chance to retaliate.
Their next game would be just a few days later on November 22, 2019. This game would be back forth. In this game, Beverley was matched up with Harden so he wasn’t guarding Westbrook for almost all the game. But despite that, Westbrook still didn’t have a good game. He only had 22 points on 41% from the field and 1 of 7 3 pointers from the field. This is the game that this happened (Harden crossing Beverley). Paul George was horrible from the field, shooting 27% from the field, Kawhi was doing his thing and had 24 on 56% from the field. Harden was going off, he had 37 points, 12 assists, and 8 boards on 56% from the field and 46% from 3.
Kawhi hits the midrange jumper to go ahead. Harden has the ball with Kawhi guarding him, PG comes over with the double leaving Russ wide open.
Yeah Beverley mocks Westbrook’s shot. And to be fair, Westbrook was shooting 22% from 3 upto that point in the season. Westbrook was shooting bricks. Westbrook can be seen visibly calling Bev “trash”.
And as soon as the game started, it was on. Westbrook was making midrange shots over everyone, making circus shots and just barrelling through defenders. Once again, Patrick Beverley wasn’t guarding Westbrook. On top of that Westbrook was getting to the line since none of the Clippers could keep him in front. Not even Kawhi. Yeah. Russ would end up going to the line 13 times and surprisingly make 12 of them. And then in the third quarter, the Rockets swing the ball to Russ. Beverley does shows and runs back to Harden. Russ takes the three and hits it. Right after, he points at Bev. If you remember, that’s the same spot that Russ had just missed the game winning three and the three that Beverley had mocked him.
Westbrook would continue carrying the Rockets and end the game with 40 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. Towards the end of the game, Beverley picks up his 6th foul in a 3 point game. Russ keeps taunting Bev as he’s leaving the court. Russ gets the tech as Harden pushes him away. The Rockets would win the game and afterwards, Westbrook just said (nothing new).
But what do you think? Who’s the most competitive player in the league.
