Patrick Beverley had six points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block in 26 minutes on Thursday in a win against the Houston Rockets .
Beverley put together a productive night across the stat sheet and he's becoming a pretty reliable option overall. He'll never wow you with his point total, but all in all, Beverley is someone that garners more recognition. One thing that goes overlooked is Beverley's ball security; in the last eight games, he hasn't had more than one turnover, and in that same span, there have been four games where he hasn't had a single turnover. Beverley is the last option to score points in the Rockets' starting lineup, but he just gets it done in other ways.
Patrick Beverley contributed 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals across 35 minutes in Monday's 112-111 win over the Pelicans.
Beverley has now logged 30-plus minutes while playing back-to-back nights in his first two games back from an ankle sprain, so there doesn't seem to be much reason to worry about his health. The point guard has amassed a total of 16 boards and backcourt mate James Harden has ripped down 26 boards over those two games, but the rebounding opportunities for both should significantly decline once the Houston Rockets get Dwight Howard (ankle) back from injury.
Patrick Beverley (knee) played 31 minutes in Sunday's 115-104 win over the Mavericks, finishing with seven points (3-10 FG, 1-7 3Pt), nine rebounds, four assists, and one block.
Beverley reclaimed his spot in the starting lineup and led the Houston Rockets ' point guards in minutes, signifying that his ankle is no longer much of a concern after the injury sidelined him for four of the previous six games. While Beverley attacked the glass well Sunday, his porous shooting limited his impact on the offensive end, and those struggles could eventually result in him sacrificing more playing time to backup Ty Lawson, who has hit double figures in the scoring column in each of the last three contests.
Updating a previous note,
Beverley was questionable heading into the game, but has been cleared to play and will start after missing the past two contests. He could see his minutes slightly restricted due to the injury, and if that's the case, look for Ty Lawson and Jason Terry to see more action off the bench.
Beverley returned to practice Saturday and said he expects to play Sunday, although his questionable listing suggests that may not be a slam dunk. We'll likely have to wait until closer to tip off to hear his official status, but if he's cleared, look for Beverley to move back into the starting lineup. Ty Lawson and Jason Terry would likely both see a slight decrease in minutes with Beverley back in the lineup.
