    All Lucas did was attempt a steal in a bad spot. The "fight" didn't start until he got pushed. Not blaming Garcia, just saying.

    I just find the venom being thrown at Lucas hilarious considering players and media have called Patrick dirty. I'm not saying Bev is dirty, it's just funny how almost no fan seems to agree with the consensus. What a coincidence.

    A blowout isn't the same as playoff intensity, but there's no denying Beverley has made some suspect plays. He probably cost OKC a trip to the Finals last season and Westbrook has had multiple surgeries since. Biased fans can't take hearing things like that though.

    The video couldn't end any other way than Drexler's chuckle

    Please. Let me know when Beverley attempts steals when his team is losing by 40 with the end of the game seconds away.

    Agree about bias fans part. If roles were opposite we'll glorify and justify the stealing of the ball by saying : " we have a never give up attitude" or some other bs.

    I think Garcia should have fouled him harder. The Rockets were showing sportsmanship by just letting the clock run out.

    There's no rule against stealing the ball in that situation. Just like there's no rule against a hard foul either. Give the foul and send him to the line. Notice how Lucas wasn't brave enough to take the ball to the rim and try to score.

    Cool.... let's just say Beverley is completely innocent for the playoff incident.

    What's your excuse this season when he attempted a steal 2 seconds after the whistle?

    Show me when Lucas attempts a steals 2 seconds after play stoppage.

    _______________________________

    "Bev isn't dirty, he's just a pest"... eventhough media, players, and ex-players say otherwise
    "Lucas is bum"
    "a blowout is NOTHING like the playoffs"


    The jury is out!!!!!
    Rockets can do no wrong and their opponents are the Anti-Christ.

    LOL. That's what I thought too. I've never seen a ref trying to block a player while the game is still on.

    I can understand Lucas's frustration. It's still a dumb move. But props to him to admit it wasn't a smart thing to do after he calmed down.

    The "I don't back away from nobody" part was funny though.

    You're attempt at the comparisons

    Laughable.

    On a side note, those 2 black dudes in the backgrounds were funny.
    And Cisco had every right to do that, you don't go attempt a steal when another team is trying to dribble it out in a blow out game..classless, and on the Utah feed, he actually yells out "you in my city" like he's proud of it, gtfo Lucas

    If roles were opposite, and a rocket did it, I'd be pissed with them too. Pissed cause they got their ass kicked by 40. I'd tell them to get off the court as fast as they could. Gonna embarrass my fandom like that?
