Steve Clifford health issue
Early Friday morning Charlotte Bobcats associate head coach Patrick Ewing was getting annoyed that his cell phone kept ringing.
“I thought, ‘Who in the hell is this calling me this time of the morning?’ It was (head coach Steve Clifford), telling me he was experiencing chest pains and was in the hospital.”
Clifford was admitted overnight, and following tests, doctors inserted two stents in his heart. That made Ewing the acting coach Friday night against the team he once starred for, the New York Knicks.
