Thursday night was one of many emotions for the Phoenix Suns and New Orleans Pelicans.

The two teams faced off in Game 6 of the first round of the NBA playoffs and the stakes were incredibly high.

Phoenix held a 3-2 lead over the Pelicans, meaning they could sideline the team and advance to the second round.

They did just that with a 115-109 win that knocked the Pelicans out of the playoffs.

After the game, there was nothing but love for Pelicans head coach Willie Green.

Green has received a series of hugs and genuine support from the Suns and there’s a good reason for that.

Last year, Green was an assistant coach at Phoenix and was with them as they tried their best to win the NBA Finals.

Years before, his relationship with Phoenix head coach Monty Williams and Chris Paul began when he played under Williams for the New Orleans Hornets alongside Paul.

Green has come a long way since then, but he remains close to both men.

What’s next for green?

Green, Williams and Paul were all emotional after the game.

You could tell they were really moved by the evening.

Fans even saw Williams wipe tears from Green’s eyes.

It is obvious that whatever happens, these men are still brothers.

Green is also popular with its pelicans and suns.

NBA fans are also blown away by the young coach – his work with the Pelicans this year has been tremendous and truly astounding.

Even without their main star, Zion Williamson, New Orleans has surged forward and is now one of the most promising teams in the West.

Green should be proud of him and he’s certainly not the only one.
