Patrick Beverly decided Wednesday night that he wanted to head into the 2021 season before the rest of his teammates. The Clippers guard was sent off in the fourth quarter of Game Six of the Western Conference Finals after sending Suns star Chris Paul to the floor by pushing him with both hands. As both players headed toward their respective seats, Paul looked at Beverly but didn’t seem to say anything. This appearance was enough to light a fire under Beverly.

The push apparently didn’t bother Paul, who could be seen celebrating the dismissal, perhaps part of Beverly’s frustration stemming from the fact that there was nothing the Clippers could do to stop Paul. The All-Star lit his former team 11 times in a 130-103 win, scoring 41 points to help Phoenix earn a berth in the 2021 NBA Finals. “We knew they were broken. We know we broke them,” Suns forward Jay Crowder said when asked about the shove Beverly. “There is no sign of defeat better than during that moment….As soon as we knew we had won the match, we knew at some point that they were going to be broken. I think that’s basically what I saw. I saw a watershed with one of the leaders in this locker room “And that feels great, especially in the playoffs, such a great feeling.” The Suns will now turn their attention to either the Bucks or the Hawks as they try to grab the Larry O’Brien Cup In the meantime, Beverly will likely hear back from the league offices soon.
