Just hours before his Houston Rockets were set to face the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals, the 28-year-old point guard learned that his grandfather had passed away. The loss led to an emotional scene at the Toyota Center, with Beverley sobbing while sitting at his locker while coaches and players came by to offer support. Beverley, who was raised by a single mother in Chicago and is known to have been very close with his grandfather, eventually made his way to a pregame chapel session with his teammates as tipoff neared.

“It’s tough, because you know Pat and you know that he’s about as competitive as they get,” Rockets forward Ryan Anderson, who is very good friends with Beverley, told USA TODAY Sports before joining him in chapel. “I never met his grandfather, but I know that his grandfather would want him playing in this game, and want his focus to be on this game right now. But life hits you with things.

“There’s tough times in life, and we’ve just got to stick together, pick each other up. Just my job, and the team’s job, is to support him and be there for him. Hear him. And if he needs anything from us, my door is always open for him. He knows that. It’s tough.”

Sadly, Anderson knows as much about recovering from loss as anyone.

In August of 2013, during Anderson’s offseason with the New Orleans Pelicans, his girlfriend and reality television star, Gia Allemand, committed suicide. In these playoffs, Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas has played through the devastating death of his 22-year-old sister, Chyna, after her one-car accident in the Tacoma, Wash. area on April 15.

“It’s like with Isaiah Thomas, too,” Anderson said. “I don’t know how you physically go through that loss in the midst of the playoffs like that. It’s tough.”

The game tipped off at 9 p.m. ET. The Spurs lead the series 2-1.
