"I just had to set the tone", Beverley said (via ESPN).

With Pat Beverley all over him on defense, the touted rookie Ball had a quiet outing in his first official game in the National Basketball Association with only three points on 1-of-6 shooting, but had nine rebounds.

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball tallied 29 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists in a 132-130 win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night.

But he will not be alone in his determination to shut up Lonzo's father, LaVar, even as Lonzo has quietly impressed teammates with his mild manner.

"I told him, due to all the riff-raff his dad brings, he's going to get a lot of people coming at him and he has to be ready for that", Beverley told Sports Illustrated. So obviously tonight wasn't the way we wanted to come out, wasn't the way we wanted to finish. The NBA has seen a small spike in players that also like get on the mic and spit a few verses; some of those guys include Damian Lillard and Iman Shumpert.

Maybe nobody else will care quite as much about humiliating LaVar Ball by shutting his son down on the court, but Beverley raises a good point.

"HOW?!" Smith said. "WHAT GAME WERE YOU WATCHING?!" "And your check still ain't going to go no higher than what it is". Who is Patrick Beverley?

The Clippers never trailed in their first game without Chris Paul, showing a crisp offense against the Lakers' still ineffective defense. Because Lonzo's name is attached to it.
