Patrick Beverley Knocking Out Dennis Smith Jr.'s Tooth And Holding His Neck Is Every Sibling Fight

"When you hit them too hard and you have to console them after."

The face-off between the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Clippers resulted in several on the ground jump ball battles, one of which resulted in a chipped tooth.

In the third quarter, Mavericks guard Dennis Smith Jr. and the Clippers’ Patrick Beverley were scuffling for the ball when Beverley appeared to elbow Smith in the mouth. Just a second later, Smith spat out part of his tooth.

However, the drama didn’t end there. Before Smith made his way back to his feet, Beverly held the guard’s head in his hands, almost like a peace offering.

  • The two-second hold from Beverley took people all the way back to their childhood

    "Well at least he held his neck at the end to show hi support. That's was an awkward 'mybad' moment," commented @therealdjdamage on Instagram

    "When you hit your sibling too hard and try to console them after," wrote @_x0721.

  • Later on Smith Jr. got his tooth fixed and Beverly was ejected from the game

    In the fourth quarter, Beverley and Smith Jr. had another jump battle. Although everyone’s teeth survived, Beverley was ejected after he threw ball into the stands at a fan. The guard was hit with a technical foul and was walked off the court.

    After the game, Beverley told reporters that the fan, told him “F–k your mother” twice.

    “I told the referee, I told the security,” Beverley told reporters. “I mean, I’ve never gotten ejected out of a game since I’ve been in the NBA. You know, I play hard, I play within the lines, of course. I play within the rules, of course. I’ve never been ejected in my career in the NBA, but I’m a grown man. I have morals. Of course, God is first, family is second for me, and I stand firmly behind that. Anybody that knows me knows that I’m a family-first guy and some things are just unacceptable,” he said. “If no one is going to control fans, what are we supposed to do as players? I’m a grown man, but when you bring family into it, especially in a basketball game, there’s only so much you can tolerate as a man.”
