If Patrick Beverley was determined to get under Stephen Curry's skin going into the Houston Rockets' first-round series against the Golden State Warriors, it didn't take long to make that happen. Less than six minutes into the first quarter, Beverley got locked up with Curry and refused to break free after the whistle was blown. There was a little shoving here and there, but the referees were quick to act before anything got out of hand. Both players were given a technical foul.
While Beverley did briefly get under Steph's skin, the minor altercation has done little to throw last season's NBA MVP off his game. In the first quarter, Curry already has 16 points and six boards.
