In his second season with the Clippers, Beverley continued to provide reliable production, averaging 7.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game. He also posted a strong assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.5. The hard-nosed defender once again matched up against some of the league's top scorers but was also able to fill the stat sheet on his own. During the regular season, Beverley recorded at least seven boards and four assists in the same game 13 times. He was also proficient from beyond the arc, making four or more threes on eight occasions. The guard had his best scoring effort of the season in a Nov. 10 win over Milwaukee, as he racked up 21 points -- including five treys -- in the two-point victory. Later in the season, Beverley had one of his best all-around efforts in a win over the Spurs on Jan. 20. In 42 minutes (a season-high), Beverley finished with 18 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block while committing only one turnover. While the Clippers fell to the Warriors in six games in the opening round, Beverley closed the year on a strong note, averaging 13.3 points, 12.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.0 steals across Games 4 through 6.2017
Following the 2017 NBA campaign, Beverley was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers with six other players and a first-round draft pick in exchange for Chris Paul. Beverley scored 10 points in his regular-season debut with the Clippers, adding three rebounds and two steals against the crosstown Lakers. He followed that with a 15-point, five-steal performance in a victory over Phoenix. Collectively, the veteran averaged 14.3 points and shot 50 percent from the field in his first four games while converting 9-of-19 attempts from deep. On Oct. 28, Beverley notched a season-high eight assists against Detroit, adding eight points. Six days later, he totaled a season-best 23 points while grabbing seven boards versus the Grizzlies. Beverley played two more contests before a knee injury sidelined him for five contests in mid-November. He played 22 minutes against the Knicks on Nov. 22 in his return to action, scoring nine points and collecting six rebounds. However, Beverley was subsequently diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee. He underwent surgery Nov. 22 and was ruled out for the remainder of the season.2016
Beverley missed the first three weeks of the 2016-17 campaign while recovering from surgery on his right knee. He returned to post perhaps the finest season of his career, averaging 9.5 points and establishing career bests with 5.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game. His increase in boards and dimes was evident as he notched six double-doubles during the campaign, doubling the amount he posted in his first four seasons combined. He was especially aggressive on the glass, collecting 10-plus rebounds ten times during the regular season, including three times in his last four games. Beverly tied a career high with 12 assists against the Lakers on Dec. 7, adding 10 points and seven rebounds in the victory. He scored a career-best 26 points against Phoenix on April 2, falling just shy of a triple-double with eight rebounds and nine assists. However, his most impactful contribution was on the defensive end. Beverley was named to the All-NBA Defensive First Team,, becoming the fourth player in team history to receive that recognition. He was also the winner of the NBA Hustle Award. In the postseason, Beverley averaged 11.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 11 games. In Game 1 of Houston's opening-round series against Oklahoma City, he notched his second career playoff double-double, finishing with 21 points and 10 rebounds in the victory.2015
Beverley had his healthiest season to date in 2015-16 as he played a career-high 71 games. He started 63 of those contests, averaging 28.7 minutes per game. Though Beverley's scoring output dipped slightly to 9.9 points per contest, he shot a career-best 43.4 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from beyond the arc. The veteran also chipped in 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. Beverley continued to make his mark on the defensive end, averaging 1.3 steals per game while strengthening his reputation as a fearsome on-ball defender. He scored a season-high 22 points against Chicago on March 31, adding five rebounds and seven assists in 37 minutes. The 6-foot-1 guard twice notched double-digit assists during regular season. In one of those games -- the third double-double of his career -- Beverley dished 10 assists and scored 18 points in a win over Minnesota on March 18. In the final game of the season, he tied a career high with six steals and racked up a career-best 12 assists in a win over Sacramento. Beverley twice scored in double-digits during Houston's first-round playoff battle against Golden State. In five postseason games, he averaged 5.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists.2014
For the second straight season, Beverley played in exactly 56 games and made 55 starts. He was again hampered by injuries throughout the campaign, and his season came to an abrupt end in late March due to an injured left wrist. Still, Beverley was effective when he played, establishing career highs in rebounds (4.2), assists (3.4) and three-pointers (2.1) per game. The 6-foot-1 guard also scored 10.1 points per contest while playing his usual stellar defense. In December, he notched the first two double-doubles of this career. Against Sacramento on Dec. 11, he tallied 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Beverley followed that performance with a 12-point, 12-rebound performance six days later. On Nov. 22, the talented guard set a career high by draining six three-pointers in a victory over Dallas. That performance was one of eight throughout the season in which Beverley made at least four treys. As a testament to his diverse skill-set, Beverley was invited to participate in the Skills Challenge during All-Star Weekend. He came from behind in each of the final two rounds to emerge as the Skills Challenge champion.2013
Following a breakout performance in the 2013 NBA Playoffs, Beverley was given an expanded role during the 2013-14 campaign. He started 55 of the 56 games in which he played, nearly doubling his playing time to 31.3 minutes per contest. Overall, Beverley averaged 10.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. He also demonstrated a knack for shooting from deep, averaging 1.6 three-pointers per contest and making 36.1 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. Defensively, Beverley emerged as an outstanding on-ball defender, averaging 1.4 steals per game while building a reputation as a hard-nosed competitor. Despite missing 26 games throughout the season with various injuries, Beverley was named to the All-NBA Defensive Second Team. He scored 20 points twice during the season, including during a win over New Orleans on April 12 in which he knocked down four three-pointers. Beverley also demonstrated strong rebounding skills for his size and notched double-digit rebounds in two separate games. During the postseason, Beverley continued to play a key role in Houston's rotation, starting all six games in the team's first-round playoff series against Portland. In six postseason games, he played 33.7 minutes per contest, averaging 8.7 points and 4.2 rebounds.2012
After being drafted in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft, Beverley spent the first three-plus seasons of his professional career playing overseas. That changed on Jan. 7, 2013, when the Houston Rockets signed the 6-foot-1 guard to an NBA contract. Beverley played 41 games in his inaugural NBA season, averaging 5.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per contest. He shot a healthy 37.5 percent from three-point range and 82.9 percent from the charity stripe. But it was baseline-to-baseline defense versus opposing point guards that impressed fans and coaches the most. Beverley totaled a season-high 15 points against Washington on Feb. 23, adding four rebounds and three assists. He played an important role in Houston's opening-round playoff series against the Thunder, averaging 33 minutes per contest. In six postseason games, Beverley posted per-game averages of 11.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals.
