Patrick Beverley is facing a suspension to start next season after pushing Chris Paul in the back towards the end of Game 6, sources told Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.
Beverley was ejected from the game following the shove.
“I just think it built up on Pat,” C.J. Paul, Chris' older brother, told Yahoo Sports. “That’s not a way to end it. I don’t know why he did that. I’ve looked at the play a few times and all Chris did was look at him, and that look was everything. That’s when you knew he took his heart."
Beverley sent an apology to Paul via Twitter on Thursday.
