The NBA suspended Los Angeles Lakers guard Patrick Beverley for three games without pay on Thursday for forcefully shoving Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton from behind and knocking him to the court.

Per the NBA release, the suspension was “based in part on Beverley’s history of unsportsmanlike acts.”
