Way to sell it': Pat Beverley mocks Chris Paul after Flagrant 1 foul...

Game 5 of the Western Conference finals had its share of Pat Beverley antics, this time at the cost of Suns point guard Chris Paul. Beverley — who has a history of exiting postseason games for foul trouble — fought through a Deandre Ayton screen and made contact with Paul's legs as the latter made a 3-point attempt. The contact put Paul parallel to the court, in the air, before he landed on Beverley's ankle. Neither player was hurt, though Beverley was assessed a Flagrant 1 foul. The Clippers guard clearly thought little of the call, mocking Paul as he lay on the court:

Twitter reacts as Suns' Jae Crowder pokes Paul George in the eye..
Paul George was nearly unstoppable in the Clippers' must-win Game 5 against the Suns on Monday, but it wasn't for a lack of trying — especially by Jae Crowder.

The Phoenix forward poked George in his eye with 4:17 remaining in the game and his team down 108-96. Replays of the incident showed Crowder briefly grabbed at George's jersey before seemingly looking him in the eye as he followed through his defense and hit him in the face:

Jae Crowder is staring at Paul George and his eyes before poking him. He knew what he was doing.
Crowder was assessed a Flagrant 1 for the hit — the Suns lost their challenge on the call — with George hitting both of his free throws to make the score 110-96. Fourteen seconds later, George hit another 20-foot pull-up jumper to give his team an insurmountable 112-96 lead in the eventual 116-102 victory..
