Prior to his team’s victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday at the American Airlines Center, Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry consoled the 9-year-old nephew of Mavericks guard Devin Harris a week after the boy’s father died in a car crash.

In a video uploaded to Twitter Monday night, the two-time NBA champion can be seen hugging and speaking with Brayden Harris in the arena’s tunnel during pregame warmups. The boy is seen in grief with his head down as Curry offered support.

Brayden’s father, Bruce Harris — who is the brother of Devin Harris — died in on Thursday in Dallas from injuries caused by the accident. After the game, Curry told reporters what he said to the grieving child.

"It's obviously hard to find the right words to say in that situation, because it's such a tough blow to the family," Curry said. "At that age, I can't imagine what he's going through. But best thing I could say was to lean on his family to give him that strength to get through this tough time."

Curry added that his younger brother, Mavericks guard Seth Curry, informed him of the tragedy in the locker room, which compelled him to approach the boy.

"Him being here and being a big fan of me and our team [I did it] to try and lift his spirits the best we can," Curry said. "There's no right thing to say in that situation, but you just try to show him that there are a lot of people thinking about him."

Devin Harris, who attended Monday's game but did not play, reflected on his brother’s death. There is no timetable for his return.

"I lost my brother tragically and it's been a tough week," Harris told reporters in the Mavericks' locker room after Monday's game. "The family is taking it pretty hard, as you would expect them to. Probably the toughest thing I've had to deal with, dealing with myself, trying to explain it to his kids, my kids - it's just been tough."

Meanwhile, Harris explained that his time is best spent with his teammates and family.

"I can only sit in the house for so long," he said. "And these are my brothers, too. I spend every day with them, so just to be able to be around them has to be a healing them for me as well. I came to spend some time with my nephew to try to get his mind off of it."
