NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Los Angeles Clippers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After the Los Angeles Lakers beat the LA Clippers on Sunday, Harrison Sanford of Inside the Green Room wanted to ask Patrick Beverley what it was like to have LeBron James try and get him switched onto him on late-game possessions while the purple and gold closed out their 112-103 victory.

Here is a transcript of how that went:

Can you describe the challenge it is defensively when LeBron—

Beverley: “No challenge.”

Well, particularly at the end of the game—

Beverley: “No challenge.”

Can you describe what it’s like as a defender when he tries to force the switch—

Beverley: “Not hard at all.”

LeBron James finished with 28 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds, and scored 12 points in the fourth quarter.
