Video: Patrick Beverley gets T’d up after telling Rajon Rondo he’s too small

Patrick Beverley and Rajon Rondo

The Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in a defensive struggle with the Minnesota Timberwolves while being very shorthanded.

In the second quarter, Wolves guard Patrick Beverley posted up Rajon Rondo and scored, then talked some trash to him – only to get T’d up.

Beverley has always been regarded as a pest around the league. He’s not only known for being an aggressive point-of-attack defender, but also for running his mouth with reckless abandon.

The Wolves came into the contest with a 13-15 record, but they possess solid talent in Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell.

The Lakers are without Avery Bradley, Dwight Howard, Talen Horton-Tucker, Austin Reaves and Malik Monk, all of whom are in the NBA’s health and safety protocols.

The team is looking to build on a three-game winning streak and build more momentum as it heads into a week of challenging games.
