Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reported Beverley's grandfather died Sunday before the contest. Beverley honored his late grandfather after the win with an emotional press conference, per NBA TV:
According to Michael C. Wright of ESPN, Beverley "was crying when he walked in" before the game and "started crying again" during warm-ups.
Despite the emotion, Beverley scored 10 points and dished out six assists in the victory. He also played his normal hounding perimeter defense at times and hit two of Houston's 19 three-pointers.
Harden, Beverley and the rest of the Rockets now head back to San Antonio for Tuesday's Game 5. The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears, citing a source, reported Beverley would play in Game 5.
