Pelicans, Thunder Pay Tribute to Monty Williams Loss


Thunder star Kevin Durant blinked back tears during an emotional morning shootaround interview as he talked about the loss of Ingrid Williams, the wife of assistant coach Monty Williams who died following a Tuesday evening car crash. “Just love Coach Monty so much, man,” Durant said. “I feel for him, man. It’s somebody we all love.”

The Thunder forward joined his teammates for a moment of silence for Ingrid Williams before their 121-95 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night, hours after he strained to compose himself when expressing his condolences to Monty Williams for a tragedy he referred to as something “I just don’t understand.”
