In the last nine games, Patrick Beverley is averaging just 7.7 points on 32.9% shooting and 25% from three-point range (11-44).
But it’s one thing to struggle offensively as a role player. It’s another to be wildly inconsistent at your bread and butter — defense.
MK Bower of CultureMap joins me on the podcast from the Toyota Center after the Rockets fell 109-98 to the Blazers. We discuss the game, Beverley’s struggles and the team’s need for help at the point. We also touch on just how special this season has been for James Harden, the trade deadline and the impact of Dwight Howard being out 6-8 weeks.
