After last night’s performance, Stephen A Smith called Beverley a HOF pest.
It was a colossal wheels come off loss for Warriors from up 31. But this post is about Beverley. In this series he has guarded Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant and frustrated all of them. He literally took Kevin Durant out of the game. Forcing two offensive fouls on KD within seconds was a master class in defending. Durant is totally frustrated. To his credit, he has sang praises of Beverley.
Beverley guarding Durant reminded me of Sidney Moncrief guarding Larry Bird. Something about the Arkansas guards. Moncrief, Robertson, Walker, Beck, McDaniel, Beverley. Ronnie Brewer, Haydar, Gulley and Macon had some of that dog in them. I think Sills is next in line, given time.
