Westbrook Not Concerned By Pat Beverley’s Defense

on

Russell Westbrook began his news conference Tuesday afternoon by doing what Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley makes it very hard to do during games — clearing space. “We going to keep everybody back,” Westbrook said, while dribbling a basketball into a crowd of reporters after the Thunder practiced at the University of Houston. “Y’all keep your distance.”

When the subject of Beverley, who has made a name for himself by hounding opposing point guards like Westbrook on defense, came up, Westbrook wasn’t giving back any of those inches. “I never worry about what other guys are doing; it doesn’t bother me. I’ve seen it all already,” Westbrook said, when asked whether he’d broken down film of how Beverley defended him in Game 1.
