Patrick Beverley blasted Lonzo Ball after season opener
Patrick Beverley had no chill before, during and after his match with Lonzo Ball on Thursday night.
Beverley was making his Los Angeles Clippers debut, while Ball was making his hyped NBA debut. Beverley and his Clippers got the best end of the deal without a doubt.
Beverley scored 10 points in the Clippers’ 108-92 win over the Lakers, while Ball had just three points on 1-for-6 shooting and four assists for the Lakers.
The game went pretty much how Beverley predicted it would last month:

Beverley, who is notorious for being a pest, was all in Ball’s grill from the first quarter:

Then he taunted Ball after making a shot:

The harsh words didn’t end after the game.
Beverley was still hot afterwards and appeared to shade Ball some more.
“Weak a** m****** f******. Bring him out on the court with me and I will tear his a** up,” Beverley said after the game, likely talking about Ball.
When it comes to NBA debuts, Ball certainly got a rough draw in having to go up against Beverley. It’s going to be a long first few months for the Big Baller.
