Apparently, Malone doesn’t take Beverley seriously.

By Eurohoops Team /

Denver Nuggets coach Mike Malone brushed off Patrick Beverley saying that Nikola Jokic is “flailing” to try to win fouls.

“I don’t listen to Patrick Beverley a whole lot. If Kawhi Leonard was talking maybe I might’ve listened to it because Kawhi is a great player,” Malone said.

Beverley made the comment after the Los Angeles Clippers‘ Game 3 win over the Nuggets. “He presents the same thing Luka Doncic presents: a lot of flailing,” the Clippers guard told media following the match.

“What’s a flailing,” was Jokic’s reaction. “They had 26 free throws. We had 10. I’m just showing the ref it’s a foul.”

Malone also addressed the difference in the number of free throws and added that “I’m not really sure what game Patrick is talking about.”
