WATCH: Lakers’ Patrick Beverley ejected vs. Suns after absolutely leveling 7-footer Deandre Ayton in the back

Patrick Beverley was sent off late in the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ loss to Phoenix on Tuesday night, and he could well have been on the receiving end of a suspension for completely leveling Deandre Ayton.

Apparently, Beverley did not like the seven-foot Ayton standing over Reeves, who was knocked to the ground after a rough foul (face contact) from Devin Booker.

This is not truesoar. This is work with a running start, at shoulder level. It would be shocking if Beverly wasn’t suspended for at least a game, if not several games, for this act. You can understand that Beverly doesn’t like that Ayton is seemingly taunting a teammate on the ground, but this is completely out of place.

Beverley called the incident “very unfortunate” but said he did not appreciate Ayton “vilely robbing” Reeves. It seems like the Suns would rather have Beverly at least go about his business face to face.

“[Patrick] you need to stop pushing people in the back,” Devin Booker said of Beverly’s hit. – Push them in the chest. That’s all I have to say.”

Suns coach Monty Williams called it “stupid” that Beverley shoved Ayton in the back and said the league definitely needs to look at the game. The Lakers, of course, had a different take on the incident.

Maybe in the old NBA, Beverly gets away with it. But not today. The Lakers, despite Anthony Davis’ monstrous performance (37 points, 21 rebounds, 5 blocks and 5 steals), lost the game 115-105, falling to 5-11 for the season, and are the only NBA team without a road win. . .
