Clippers’ Patrick Beverley Mocks Chris Paul

During the 3rd quarter, Patrick Beverley was called for a flagrant foul on Suns’ Chris Paul. However, Beverley visibility showed his disagreement for the foul on Chris Paul by mocking him for flopping on the play which was later reviewed, and the foul was given.

Paul was attempting a three when Beverley slipped the screen of DeAndre Ayton and crashed into CP3. The foul looked dangerous and Paul landed awkwardly on his back. However, Paul didn’t sustain any injuries and got up to shoot free throws.

Paul made all the 3 free throws after that and followed it up with an assist to Ayton. Later, Beverley and CP3 were talking about it. Likewise, it all looked good between them. Paul ended the quarter having 16 points while Beverley had 7 to his name.
