In a California battle of hoops between Sacramento and LA, the Kings reigned supreme over the Lakers. It was an overall effort from the Beam Team, with all its starters scoring in double-digits, including an impressive triple-double from big man Domantos Sabonis.

Meanwhile, the Lakers struggled minus their two superstar players, Anthony Davis (foot injury) and Russell Westbrook (left foot soreness). Thus LeBron James was back to being the sole offensive engine of the team, having at least 30-points in his 5th consecutive game.

Unfortunately, LBJ’s efforts went in vain, with the Lakers having their second blowout loss. Amid all of this, newly acquired guard, Patrick Beverley, was busy talking trash through his opponents via his gestures. The 34-year-old has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons off-late.

Being down 19-points in the 4th quarter against the Kings, Beverley had everyone puzzled with his ‘too small’ celebration on a hook shot against Kings guard Kevin Huerter. Surprisingly, this was the second blowout loss in which PatBev made the mocking gesture, the first being against the Suns. The 6ft 2″ guard’s antics had Twitter amazed.

NBA Twitter reacts to Patrick Beverley’s ‘too small’ gesture amid a blowout loss.

This marked the second consecutive instance where despite being down double-digits, Big 12 was hitting the ‘too small’ celebration, the first being against his not-so-good friend Chris Paul.

Patrick Beverley expresses a desire to return to Minnesota.

With the trade deadline approaching and the Lakers struggling, Beverley has begun evaluating his options, even expressing a desire to return to the Timberwolves.

According to Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, “Should Beverley ultimately get moved to a rebuilding situation like the (Detroit) Pistons, the grizzled guard has a desire to return to Minnesota, sources said, should he reach free agency via buyout.”

Currently averaging 5.3 PPG, 3.5 RPG, and 2.6 APG, Beverley has been unable to contribute to the Lakers on both ends of the court. Thus a trade might be the most viable option.
