During the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s Clippers-Suns game, Ryan Hollins got tangled up with Goran Dragic and held on a bit too long, appearing to have put him in a headlock. Beasley defended his teammate, getting into it with Hollins which led to him being ejected from the game. Dragic called it a “dirty play” postgame, and Beasley explained his need to come to “Gogi’s” (Dragic) defense.
According to Paul Coro, AZ Central:
“He was choking me and I tried to get free. That’s it. I don’t know why that happened. It was just a dirty play. I tried to separate but he’s strong.
Beasley explains why he defended his teammate:
“He choked Gogi,” Beasley said of Hollins’ foul on Dragic. “These guys in this locker room are my family. They’re my brothers. You’re not going to choke my brother and sit there and smile about it. I feel like the only reason he did that was because it was Gogi. He’s bigger than Gogi. I’d do it a million times. I’d do it for anyone in this locker room.
