Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley was seen distraught, emotional, and losing his composure before Sunday’s Game 4 against the San Antonio Spurs.
Multiple reports out of Houston confirmed that Beverley lost his grandfather earlier on Sunday before the game, and he was understandably struggling to deal with the emotion of both the death of a loved one and the stress of a second round NBA playoff series simultaneously.
When the game started, the first basket happened to come from Beverley on a broken play kick out from James Harden.
The Rockets beat the Spurs 125-104, and after the game Beverley spoke about his grandfather.
Thoughts are with Beverley and his family today.
