Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley had to tough outing during Sunday’s Game 4 win over the San Antonio Spurs, 125-104. Beverley’s grandfather passed away earlier in the day, and he had been trying to keep his emotions in check all day.
The Rockets came out and stunned San Antonio by 21 points to even the series, 2-2. Beverley himself hit the first bucket of the game, a 3-pointer, after which he tapped his chest and pointed to the sky to honor his grandfather. He finished with 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting, adding six assists, four rebounds, and a steal.
But after the game was over, Beverley was understandably emotional. Speaking to reporters during the postgame presser, Beverley honored his grandfather, a man the Rockets PG said, “Wore my jerseys every single day of his life.”
Here’s wishing all the best to Patrick Beverley’s family.
