LOS ANGELES -- Without Danilo Gallinari lately, the Los Angeles Clippers have gone small. Their sparkplug has been Patrick Beverley.

The veteran guard had 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists on Sunday, helping the Clippers beat the Sacramento Kings 122-108 for their third straight victory.

"Pat has been MVP or key to us in this run," coach Doc Rivers said. "He's a tough-guy competitor and holds every guy accountable on the floor."

Missing Gallinari for five games due to lower back spasms, the Clippers went 3-1 on their recent road trip. They opened with a win at San Antonio in which Beverley became the only player 6-foot-1 or shorter to log 18-plus points, 12-plus rebounds, five-plus assists, four-plus steals and one block or more in over 25 seasons.

"We're sharing the ball and everybody is playing well," Beverley said. "We're just hanging our hat on defense. We're locked in from shootaround to the end of the game."
