Beverley totaled just three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt) but added 11 rebounds, seven assists and three blocks across 25 minutes in the Clippers' 121-117 loss to the Pelicans on Monday. The veteran outpaced starter Shai Gilgeous-Alexander by 12 minutes of playing time and was exponentially more productive. Beverley's rebounding tally was a season high, while his assist total was his best since Dec. 17. Beverley continues to be minimally involved on the offensive end, however, putting up five or fewer shot attempts in eight of his last nine games. While he's still good for the occasional double-digit scoring performance, his capped production keeps his fantasy viability limited to very deep formats at present.
Beverley offered 10 points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds and one steal across 31 minutes in the Clippers' 131-127 loss to the Trail Blazers on Monday. The veteran point guard thrived with extended opportunity off the bench. Beverley's scoring total served as his best since Nov. 15, while his assists qualified as a season high. Despite his second-unit role, the veteran has been logging plenty of playing time thanks to his strong defense and ability to fill in at either guard spot, as he's played at least 20 minutes in six straight. Beverley has also had his long-distance shot working thus far in December, as he's drained multiple threes on four occasions on his way to a 39.3 percent success rate from behind the arc during the month.
Beverley contributed six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists, and one block in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 loss to the Wizards. Beverley joined the reserve unit with Danilo Gallinari (illness) back in the lineup and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Avery Bradley holding down the starting backcourt spots. Beverley has seen considerably less minutes over these last two games (40 minutes combined compared to over 26 minutes per game prior) since Bradley returned from a six-game absence with an ankle injury. However, Beverley's ability to defend the point of attack and provide playmaking and three-point shooting will likely continue to earn him decent minutes going forward.
Beverley will come off the bench Tuesday against the Clippers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports. With Danilo Gallinari (illness) back, coach Doc Rivers will opt to keep a backcourt of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Avery Bradley. The move could hurt Beverley's playing time, and he only saw 19 minutes during Monday's game against the Hawks.
Beverley pitched in 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal across 25 minutes in the Clippers' 116-111 win over the Spurs on Thursday. The full line represented one of Beverley's best all-around efforts of the season, and it included his third double-digit scoring tally in the last five games. The seven rebounds were also a monthly high for Beverley, as he continues to offer serviceable production across the stat sheet on some nights. His scoring does go through a fair share of ups and downs, however, so his overall fantasy value certainly falls in the latter half of starting point guards around the league.
