The incident occurred with the Suns holding a 118-92 lead with just under six minutes remaining, and Beverley was given a technical foul and ejected.
The Suns went on to win the game 130-103, clinching a spot in the NBA Finals for the first time since 1993.
Beverley apologized for shoving Paul in a social media post the day after the game:
The 32-year-old didn’t make much of an impact in this year’s playoffs aside from being a pest. Beverley averaged 4.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game while shooting 42.6% from the field and 35.1% from deep. The 2021 playoffs marked the lowest-scoring postseason campaign for the veteran as the Clippers failed to reach their goal of making the NBA Finals once again.
