LaVar Ball fires back at Patrick Beverley for trashing Lonzo

  • Teodosic brings new life to the Clippers

After all the hype around Lonzo Ball's arrival in the National Basketball Association, it was clear that Patrick Beverley was keen to show the new kid who's who when the Clippers faced the Lakers in their first game of the season.

A 22-6 run from midway through the third period to early in the fourth effectively took out the fight from the Lakers as the Clippers led by 30, 95-65, punctuated by a Willie Reed jam off a lob from Austin Rivers. "I have to show it in my game, because when we win, people won't talk".

A huge reason for Ball's quiet night was down to Clippers guard Patrick Beverley who made it his mission to make the night as uncomfortable as possible for the youngster and he succeeded. He was stymied all night by the Clippers' Patrick Beverley and his Lakers were handed their first loss of the season, 108-92.

"I just had to set the tone", Beverley said. "I told him after the game that due to all the riffraff his dad brings, that he's going to get a lot of people coming at him". I think when he stepped on the court that he wasn't ready to go like he has been the past week, so I pulled him out to tell him about it, and I know he wasn't happy with me, but that's my job.

Beverley, who was traded from the Rockets to the Clippers this offseason, is an extreme and in a way could not have been a worse matchup for Ball in his debut. It's just been one game but if the first one was any indication, the Suns' defense looked awful and it could be a flawless time for the Lakers to take advantage of it to kickstart their season. Beverley, as he likes to do, picked up the rookie well past half-court many times. Deng could lineup as a starter on Thursday, but that has more to do with a leftover two-game suspension for starting shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope than Deng cracking the Lakers' rotation. "We've got to regroup".

Most of these deaths were caused by non-infectious diseases linked to pollution, such as heart disease, stroke and lung cancer. With 1.58 million, China had the second-highest number of air pollution deaths after India (1.81 million).


Ball said he liked the shots he got but couldn't make them.

"He's going to be a great talent, but he has to go through the tough times", Beverley said.

"Yeah, you shut the m--f-- down", LaVar Ball told ESPN. Lonzo don't even care about Beverley.
