NBA ROLE: ELITE PERIMETER DEFENDER

 

LAC’s Patrick Beverley, or ‘Mr. 94 Feet’ as the kids call him, is a scrappy, in-your-face point guard whose main purpose is to frustrate opposing guards; Beverley’s an absolute dog on defense – will pick you up full court and kill some time just by staying active and pressuring ball-handlers before the rock crosses the timeline; corner 3s, fast break hoops and floaters are Bev’s main sources of offense but when he’s out there, you can bet his focus isn’t on dropping 30 – it’s on stopping his man from putting up a big night*; leader, stopper & playmaker for Doc Rivers

 

*and for Bev to have repeated success defending guards in this era is impressive – there’s a reason you pencil him in as a starter every night despite some offensive deficiencies
