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  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.”
