The Footprint Center almost saw another 'Malice At The Palace' after Patrick Beverley Shoving Deandre Ayton had a fan ready for a smoke if it came down to it.

Beverley may have ended his evening with zero points to contribute, but his prowess on the hardwood came to the fore when he took offense to Ayton standing over Austin Reaves after a hard foul.

Not the one to watch when his teammates get knocked to the ground, the point guard leveled Ayton in the back, and footage of a fan ready to roll up his sleeves and join the brouhaha did the rounds on social media.

Devin Booker And Monty Williams React To The Patrick Beverley-Deandre Ayton Episode

The Phoenix Suns weren't happy with the entire fiasco and were vocal in expressing their displeasure after the game.

Devin Booker called out Beverley and hoped that he would have a straight confrontation, while coach Monty Williams felt it was "silly" of the Lakers player. According to CBS Sports:

"[Patrick] needs to stop pushing people in the back," Devin Booker said. "Push them in the chest. That's all I've got to say."

Report: Knicks willing to trade Immanuel Quickley for future pursuit of star player

  Report: Knicks willing to trade Immanuel Quickley for future pursuit of star player New York’s front office may believe that a first-round pick from another team is more valuable in a potential trade than Quickley, who will be eligible for a rookie-scale extension next summer. © David Richard-USA TODAY Sports New York Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley. Quickley has been part of the team’s rotation since his rookie season, and his game has evolved. Katz notes that he was originally relied on for instant offense off the bench, but his efficiency has declined and he’s now shooting a career-worst 30.9% on three-pointers.

The Lakers camp had a different perspective on the whole episode. Russell Westbrook had his teammate's back. According to Johan Buva of The Athletic:

Russell Westbrook on Patrick Beverley’s ejection: “I love it, personally. Protecting and understanding we have each other’s back is the most important thing as a team.”

The loss against Phoenix puts the Lakers back to 14th place with a 5-11 run. They missed the services of LeBron James but had dominating displays from Anthony Davis and Westbrook, who has been consistent in their star's absence.

The Lakers play the San Antonio Spurs again in a back-to-back away from home and hope to get back to winning ways and climb up the standings.
