How the Astros got their swagger back

  How the Astros got their swagger back WASHINGTON — Nearly half the room was filled with champions. Their rings, each studded with 25 natural sapphires and 214 diamonds, from 2017 still glimmered, if not in lock boxes, certainly in memories. They knew better than to feel as shaken as they had looked coming off the Minute Maid Park field last week. They were beleaguered from an embarrassing Game 2 loss that frittered away home-field advantage and put them down 2-0 in the World Series to the chest-pounding Washington Nationals, who were playing more like the Astros had two years ago.

Patrick Beverley was fined $25,000 by the NBA for throwing a ball into the stands on Tuesday night.

Beverley did an underhand heave of a ball into the stands at Staples Center following the L.A. Clippers’ 112-102 win over the rival Lakers.

Beverley signed a $40 million deal with the Clippers during the offseason, so he’s probably not as concerned about the fine as he might have been in the past.

Yes, Beverley was just having fun and celebrating, but the league likely deems throwing a ball into the stands like a safety concern and wants to protect its fans.
