Devin Booker And Patrick Beverly Collide And Blood Was Spilt

During the third quarter of the Western Conference semi-finals, the score was standing at 62-69. The game is getting intense and both teams need to put their best plays forward. Patrick Beverly jumped in to try and steal the ball from the hands of Booker. While doing this, the two-point guards collided and there was blood all over the floor. Both stars were seen bleeding and they walked off the court into the locker rooms.

Devin Booker played 32 minutes and put up 14 points, 5 assists and 3 rebounds. Booker has been the reason why the Suns have made it deep into the playoffs. If Devin Booker does not return for the night, the game could go the Clippers way. Booker has been doing his best on all ends of the court. However, the Suns have nothing to worry about as the young and hungry, Devin Booker is back out on the court.

Patrick Beverly played 18 minutes and put up 3 points,1 assist and 4 rebounds. Patrick Beverly is a key member of the Clippers. LAC are already down one star and losing another, is the last thing they need. They may have backups. But losing teammates can affect the atmosphere in a locker room.  However, Beverly is not someone who will just give up. He has returned to play with a laceration.

Since these two returned to the game even after the hard collision, they are most likely to play in Game 3 Thursday night as well.
