On Thursday night, the Milwaukee Bucks faced elimination in their first-round playoff series against the Indiana Pacers, with the odds not in their favor despite getting superstar guard Damian Lillard back on the basketball floor.

Ultimately, the Pacers were too much to handle on Thursday night in Indianapolis at Gainbridge Fieldhouse, as Tyrese Haliburton and company were able to pull off the series-clinching win in front of their fans.

With the Bucks flaming out in Game 6, the frustration mounted on the team’s bench, with veteran guard Patrick Beverley losing his cool and getting into an altercation with a fan who was taunting the team from behind the bench.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Beverley was provoked to throw a basketball at a fan because that fan was taunting the bench with a “Cancun” chant.

Sources: The exchange between Patrick Beverley and one of the fans in Indianapolis escalated when the Bucks were breaking huddle Thursday night, and the fan yelled, “Cancún…Cancún on 3.”

Beverley has never been considered a player with a level head when it comes to this kind of interaction with fans and opposing players, as he tends to lose his cool quicker than most and makes ill-advised decisions, which get him in trouble more often than not.

As a result of this altercation, Beverley is almost certainly facing a suspension and a hefty fine from the league, as they will look to make an example of him, and understandably so.

As if that wasn’t bad enough for Beverley, he refused to talk to a reporter in the locker room because that reporter hadn’t subscribed to his podcast, which is uncalled and extremely unprofessional.
