Beverley had rejected Smart’s tirelessness following LA’s 107- 104 Thursday night win against the meeting Boston Celtics.
I asked Patrick Beverley what it resembled for him and Marcus Smart essentially attempting to out-do one another.(blank gaze)… Well you don’t for the most part have anybody out there that matches your force.”… … that is funny”(scrum closes, Bev turns and sneers)”… . coordinate your force”— John Karalis 🇬🇷 (@RedsArmy_John) November 21, 2019
Per The Boston Globe:
“What I am shocked about is for Pat to imagine that I’m underneath him or anything in that stance where, you (put) me head facing Pat I think we know who’d win that fight. I think my play justifies itself with real evidence. I’m not saying Pat’s not a decent athlete, great safeguard, however I’m simply on another level right now.”Before the Celtics confronted the Clippers on Wednesday, Smart said that his regard for Beverley is “through the rooftop.” On Friday, he said those emotions had not changed, yet this time there was an addendum.”He has heart,” Smart said. “You must regard a person like that that goes out there and plays each night valiantly, and truly remains down to no one. The regard factor is there, and yet, I’m on another level. I feel like with regards to me, on the off chance that you needed to pick me and Pat, I think I’d get that gesture, so no offense to Pat, yet step his game up somewhat more and we’ll see.”
