It is the case of Patrick Beverley, new player of the Minnesota Timberwolves, who in the past has had especially hot duels with the Slovenian Mavs player, but who does not hesitate to praise his quality.
Beverley spoke with Jamal Cristopher, a journalist specialized in the Clippers, through his Instagram account and in it he did not hesitate to point out the former Real Madrid player as the most difficult player to defend in the NBA: “Easy, until today the player who is more difficult to score is Luka”.
Yes, Beverley warned the Slovenian player that this season everything will be different. “I’m ready to stop his ass”, assured a player who has suffered the best version of Doncic during the last two seasons in which the Mavericks crossed with the Clippers in the playoffs.
Both players have a duel in which sparks fly every time they meet on the court. Especially since the Orlando bubble playoffs in 2020 when Beverley accused Doncic of protesting too much to the referees. Later in 2021, both players starred in a hitch on the court in which they exchanged grabs, shoves and some other compliment before the rest of the players who were on the court got involved in the fight.
