The Clippers pulled off an epic comeback in Game 2 versus the Warriors. LA erased a 31-point deficit and won by a final score of 135-131. The Clippers outscored the Warriors 85-58 in the second half.
Beverley, of course, has been playing phenomenal defense on Warriors star small forward Kevin Durant. KD only attempted eight shots in Game 2. Beverley’s physical defense has made Durant uncomfortable in the first two games of the series.
The Clippers now have home-court advantage in the series. However, Golden State can retake home-court advantage by winning one game in Los Angeles. The Clippers have to be prepared for an onslaught by the Dubs in Game 3.
Beverley is averaging just 6.5 points in the series while shooting 28.6 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from beyond the arc. His defense, energy and passion, though, have been nothing short of spectacular.
You have to watch the game live on TV to see what type of impact Beverley has for Los Angeles.
