LA Clippers guard Patrick Beverley does not agree with the notion that the Lakers stand in the way of his team to the NBA finals.

“No, no,” Beverley told Sean Deveney of Heavy. “I have said, they are going to have to go through us. I think 1-through-17, coaching staff, training staff, organization, we all feel the same way. No matter what, you’ve got to come see us. That’s our attitude. That’s been our attitude since last year. And that won’t change.”

The Lakers are currently first in the Western Conference with 41 wins and 12 losses, while the Clippers are third with a 37-18 record. The Los Angeles sides were pre-season favourites to win it all and so far they seem to be on track for that.
