OKC Thunder superstar Paul George wasn’t happy with the officiating during Oklahoma City’s loss to the Clippers on Friday. 

He was so mad he called out the referees and was fined $25,000 for his comments.

But Patrick Beverley, a man who takes serious pride in his ability to play one-on-one defense, wasn’t happy, and didn’t hide his feelings. He responded to what George said and his response to the All-Star forward sparked a heated exchange.

“Men lie, numbers don’t. He tried to blame the refs. Naw bra bra!!!,” Beverly wrote on Twitter.

This tweet was actually in reply to another pointing out George’s success, or lack thereof, when Beverley guarded him Friday.

George went 3-of-10 shooting with seven points on 44 possessions. But the MVP candidate wasn’t having it from Beverley.

Beverley wasn’t backing down.

“never knew u for the excuse type,” he wrote. “Give credit if credit is due. I locked u up last night. I won the Battle last night. Plain and simple.”

Let’s hope these two meet up in the Playoffs.
