Clippers’ Patrick Beverley gives rude welcome to Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — Patrick Beverley chest-bumped Lonzo Ball to the court after talking trash to him from the baseline to the midcourt line midway through the first quarter of the Clippers’ season-opening victory Thursday over the Lakers. Beverley then forced Ball into a backcourt violation a moment later.Beverley later swiped the ball from Ball near midcourt and coasted the other direction for an easy layup. Beverley then swished a 3-pointer while free from Ball in the corner, retreating down court to play defense while waving his hand in front of his face like wrestler John Cena.You can’t see me.Ball experienced the Beverley Factor for the first time in a dud of an NBA debut, but it was nothing new for anyone who’s been around the league. Beverley was named to the league’s all-defensive first team for the first time in 2016-17 and was on the second team in 2013-14. Fire and grit are what attracted the Clippers to Beverley in the first place. They acquired him from the Houston Rockets as part of a package of players in exchange for Chris Paul during the offseason. So far, after one lopsided victory, there have been no regrets.No surprises, either.“That’s his mentality against everybody,” power forward Blake Griffin said of Beverley. “It doesn’t matter if it’s Lonzo or whoever is next. That’s just his mentality. Pat wakes up like that. We have a lot of guys who have chips on their shoulders, and we play really hard.”Beverley’s intensity in his full-court defensive pressure was infectious, Griffin said.“When you see somebody dogging the ball like that you have no choice to be there for him,” Griffin said. “He’s putting in all that effort and you’ve got to do the same thing. Defensively, it starts with the guards picking up and our guards did a really good job.”For the record, Beverley held Ball to three points on 1-for-6 shooting. Ball also had nine rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes, 21 seconds, watching glumly from the bench with his teammates as the Clippers’ lead grew to as many as 30 points in the fourth quarter.Beverley scored 10 points on 4-for-10 shooting, adding three rebounds and one assist in 24:07 in his Clippers debut. He said the knee injury that sidelined him for two of the Clippers’ five exhibition games bothered him in the early going Thursday.“Knocking off rust,” Beverley said. “Knocking off rust, first game.”ALL ABOUT MILOSMilos Teodosic started and scored six points on 2-for-9 shooting with one rebound and a team-high six assists. At 30 years, 214 days, he is the seventh-oldest rookie to make his NBA debut since 1976-77. Pablo Prigioni of the New York Knicks was the oldest at 36 years, 169 days in 2012-13.center_img Above all, Beverley has been a first-team pest and agitator since making his NBA debut in 2012-13.Nothing personal.Well, maybe a little.Beverley railed profanely about Ball as he entered the locker room after the Clippers’ 108-92 victory, according to a report on The Undefeated website. Beverley cleaned it up for reporters once inside, saying in a G-rated postgame conversation, “I just had to set the tone.”He also said: “I told him after the game, due to all the riff-raff his dad (LaVar) brings, he’s going to get a lot of people coming at him. He has to be ready for that. I let him know after the game. What a better way to start than 94-feet guarding him. Welcome to the NBA.”last_img read more
