Patrick Beverley faces suspension for his cheap push from Chris Paul Wednesday night.
Near the end of their Game 6 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers at home to the Phoenix Suns, a frustrated Beverley left the league with Paul. He shoved Paul from behind for seemingly no reason.
Beverley tweeted an apology to Paul Thursday for his behavior. However, it may not escape discipline.
Yahoo’s Chris Haynes reported Thursday that Beverley will face suspension for his “dangerous” shove on Paul’s back. Because the Clippers have been eliminated, Beverley’s suspension will be considered for the start of next season.
If Beverly is suspended to start the next NBA season, it would be worth it. Beverly is lucky that Paul didn’t get hurt after that shove.
