Clippers guard Patrick Beverley has been given a one-game suspension for shoving Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul during LA’s season-ending loss Wednesday.
Beverley was ejected from the Game 6 loss when he shoved Paul in the back during a timeout in the fourth quarter.
He would tweet an apology to Paul on Thursday, saying that “emotions got the best of me.”
@CP3 emotions got the best of me last night gang. My bad wasn’t meant for you. Congrats on making it to the Finals. Best of Luck 🤞🏾

Beverley’s suspension, which is without pay, will be served during the first 2021-22 regular-season game that he is eligible to play.
