Michael C. Wright noted that Beverley was crying when he entered the Toyota Center.
Something is going on with Patrick Beverley. He was crying when he walked in. Was warming up, stopped, sat down & started crying again.

Sam Amick also reported that the Rockets’ point guard was struggling during pregame.
This is tough stuff: Pat Beverley is very upset. In tears in the locker room. Can’t imagine trying to focus when your heart is broken.

Tough stuff. Our thoughts and prayers are with Beverley and his family during this difficult time.
