VIDEO: Patrick Beverley and Russell Westbrook are not friends

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

After Patrick Beverley made a play in the playoffs last year when Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was going to call timeout, which resulted in a torn meniscus for Westbrook, the Thunder haven't been huge fans of the Rockets guard.

That continued Tuesday as the two had not one, but two separate incidents and had to be separated, with one eerily similar to the play before.

The result is a game being called much tighter than it needs to be as the officials try and maintain order. Beverley is overreacting on every play and you can tell Westbrook is also goading him. Westbrook scored on the opening possession for OKC and had some choice words for Beverley. If these two meet in the playoffs, it could get ugly.
