Clippers guard Patrick Beverley made it his mission to make Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball's NBA debut miserable, and by all accounts he succeeded in the Clippers' 108-92 season-opening win.

Ball finished with three points and four assists, and the statistics say he was absolutely smothered while Beverley was guarding him.

Beverley got extremely physical with Ball, picking him up at full court and giving him some love taps as a friendly welcome to the league.
