Steve Kerr Says He's Worried Patrick Beverly Will Get Whiplash From Flopping
APR 25, 2019 10:48 PM
Steve Kerr discussed Patrick Beverly's flop that lead to Draymond Green receiving a technical foul in the 3rd quarter of the Golden State Warriors' game 5 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
"I didn't think it was a good call. You know Beverley's going to flop, and Draymond turned. It looked like Tyson punched him in the face. Beverley's good at that. His head literally snaps back. I worry he's going to get whiplash on some of these flops. But he's good at it. And the refs, they're oftentimes partial to the little guy who's down there," said Kerr.
Kerr then went on to praise the competitive nature of Beverly.
"You've got to know what you're up against when you play against Beverley. He's a competitor. That's how he's made his money in this league. That's how he's been able to stick around -- because he competes, and he makes you uncomfortable. He scraps. He goes after loose balls. I love that guy. He's a helluva competitor. He's a helluva player. I think every coach would like to have a guy like him on the team. You have to understand when you're playing against him that you have to match that edge. That's what we didn't do last night."
