Warriors’ Steve Kerr calls out Clippers’ Patrick Beverley for flop against Draymond Green
In the third quarter of the Warriors’ Game 5 loss, Green was called for an offensive foul against Beverley. Draymond subsequently complained to the referees and was slapped a technical foul. In a press conference during the Warriors’ practice, Kerr shared his thoughts on the play, calling out Beverley in the process. Peep the clip below posted by Mark Medina of The Mercury News.
“I didn’t think it was a good call. You know Beverley is going to flop in the paint and Draymond turned. It was like Mike Tyson punched him in the face. Beverley is 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. They’re often times partial to the little guy who’s down there. I didn’t like that particular call.”

Now, the series is at 3-2 and will head back to Los Angeles for Game 6 on Friday. The Warriors’ loss in Game 5 raised eyebrows among the team’s critics. Are they about to blow another 3-1 series lead? We have yet to find out. But from what we’ve seen, the back-to-back champions look vulnerable this season.
