Patrick Beverley hunted down Mo Bamba at the parking lot after getting an elbow to the face

Thankfully, security got in the way and prevented the fight from escalating.

Mo Bamba and Patrick Beverly

If I told you someone followed their opponent to the parking lot to fight them, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley would probably be in your top 3 candidates for the role. Throughout his 12-year-stint in the NBA, Beverley has developed a reputation of being a pest and someone who fights with literally anyone on the court — even LeBron James, Chris Paul, and Russell Westbrook aren't exemptions to this. So why would Mo Bamba get a pass?

Hunting down Mo Bamba

When Beverly was elbowed in the head by Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba in the first quarter of Friday's game, the veteran did not take this lightly.

According to his teammate Terrence Ross, Beverly (who had to sit out for the rest of the game) went straight to the parking lot of the Amway Center to demand an apology from Bamba.

"Patrick Beverley, he got caught with an elbow," said Ross. "He's out. He's out of the game. He had to go to the hospital, I think. But apparently, he must have been fine. Because after the game, Mo Bamba's in his car getting ready to leave, and Patrick Beverley somehow finds his way into the player's garage [and] knocks on Mo Bamba's door trying to ask for an apology."

Ross said it was the weirdest thing ever.

According to Ross, Bamba didn't have the slightest hint that Beverley would meet him in the parking lot that night, so it was a shocker for the big man. Thankfully, security got in the way of both players and prevented the fight from escalating.

"Security came in, and they tried to get in the middle of it. I guess Mo was in his car and he didn't see Patrick walking up. Patrick walks up to his car banging on the hood trying to get him to apologize, and it was just the weirdest thing ever."

The Timberwolves guard ended up just playing four minutes against the Magic and had to sit out against the Miami Heat the following day.

On Monday night, Beverley returned to the lineup, the same game where his teammate Karl-Anthony Towns scored 60 points and had 17 rebounds in 36 minutes. As Minnesota defeated the San Antonio Spurs (149-139), Beverley contributed 20 points, eight assists, and four rebounds.

Beverley has yet to comment about his interaction with Bamba. Fortunately for these two, they won't be meeting for the rest of the regular season. So while the news of Beverley hunting down Bamba may have come from Ross, it's still not a shocker to know this because this is the kind of person Beverly has been throughout his career — a feisty and a get-in-your-face type of dude.
