Really? There was nothing wrong with what Beverley did. He tried to steal the ball from Westbrook before OKC took a time out, which does work from time to time because the PG dribbling the ball is often non chalant bringing it past halfcourt because he assumes that the other team wont go near him due to his team calling a timeout. There was nothing dirty about that play, you're basing your opinion on the result of what happened. It's like calling a regular foul a flagrant foul, which happens a lot now in todays NBA, because a player didnt land right and got hurt. The result of the play shouldn't convict the defensive player, the original action should.
