Rockets’ Beverley Wins the Skills Challenge

Pat Beverley was introduced as a defensive specialist. Even when he won the Skills Challenge on Saturday, he was described by TNT’s Ernie Johnson as “an irritant.” But he was a winner based on skills.

In some ways, that should not have been a surprise. The Skills challenge has two kinds of shots, layups and 3-pointers, the shots the Rockets take more often than any team, and no mid-range jumper. So when Beverley misfired his passes in the semifinals and finals, falling far behind Jeff Teague and then Brandon Knight, he made his first 3-pointer in each round while they were still missing.

With that, he hoped to take his success in Brooklyn back to Houston.
