Patrick Beverley hustles back, blocks Norris Cole (GIF)

In the most anticipated matchup of Tuesday night, the Houston Rockets are playing host to the two-time defending world champion Miami Heat.The first half was very strange. The two teams combined for 71 first quarter points and the Rockets took a 39-32 lead. In the second quarter, both defenses clamped down. The two squads combined for just 34 second quarter points and the Heat trailed by only one, 53-52, at the break.

With players like LeBron James, Dwight Howard and James Harden playing, superstar plays are expected.

However, it was Rockets’ point guard Patrick Beverley that may have made the game’s best play. With the Heat out in transition, Beverley gets back and blocks Norris Cole’s layup attempt. He also made a nice play to save a desperation pass by forward Chandler Parsons.
