Ahead of Game 4 between the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs, Rockets' guard Patrick Beverley received the unfortunate news that his grandfather had passed away.
Beverley, understandably, was upset as he tried to warm-up before the game.
Something is going on with Patrick Beverley. He was crying when he walked in. Was warming up, stopped, sat down & started crying again.— Michael C. Wright (@mikecwright) May 7, 2017
Like Isaiah Thomas earlier in the playoffs, it's hard to imagine what Beverley must be going through, but as of now, it appears that Beverley is planning to play.
