H-Town’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 ball crosses the timeline; corner 3s and floaters are Bev’s only 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 in a big night*; one of two proven defenders in Mike D’Antoni’s starting five (along w/ Trevor Ariza), Bev has the most responsibility he’s ever had as a stopper

*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 his offensive deficiencies
