Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard publicly questioned Minnesota Timberwolves floor general Patrick Beverley's strong, lengthy criticism of Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns Monday after they were eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday.

Among other things, Beverley, who appeared on Get Up and First Take Monday morning, notably said "guys in the NBA" don't worry about playing the Suns.

The Suns' season ended after a 123-90 loss to the Dallas Mavericks in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

Paul struggled significantly in the final five games of the Mavs series, and the Suns trailed by as many as 46 points at home before falling to Dallas on Sunday.
