2020 Playoffs: First Round | Clippers vs. Mavericks

Clippers G Patrick Beverley (calf strain) out for Game 2 vs. Mavericks

Clippers coach Doc Rivers announced pregame that starting point guard Patrick Beverley would miss Wednesday’s Game 2 vs. Dallas with a left calf strain. The coach told reporters Beverley “wasn’t moving well” prior to the game, “so we scratched him.”

Beverley, who carries a well-earned reputation as one of the league’s most dogged defenders, had eight points, five rebounds and two steals in Monday’s 118-110 Game 1 victory. Midseason addition Reggie Jackson could slot into the starting role, with Terance Mann picking up additional time off the bench.
