Lakers News: Lakers Twitter loathes Patrick Beverley – All Lakers

Last night your Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Detroit Pistons 128-121 at Arena, thanks in large part to the exploits of Anthony Davis, who hit a masterful double-double with 38 points and 16 rebounds.

Four perimeter players scored in double figures (Lonnie Walker IV, Austin Reaves, Russell Westbrook and Kendrick Nunn), but the LA starting point guard was not among them.

Patrick Beverley, currently from an expiring $13 million contract, put in another stunning offensive performance and his defensive reputation so far preceded him that head coach Darvin Ham replaced the 6’1″ veteran with the 6’7″ Sniper Bojan Bogdanovic transferred. It didn’t seem to have much of a negative impact on Bogdanovic’s night. In 35:05 he had 20 points on 7-of-15 shots from the floor and 6-of-7 shots from the free-throw line. He also pulled down six rebounds and dished out five assists.
