Tuesday at 11pm: Coach Clifford's Close Call

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The life of an NBA coach isn't easy.

Hectic travel itineraries, late nights, and wacky sleep schedules can really throw you off.

For Coach Steve Clifford, in his first year as the head coach of the now playoff-bound Charlotte Bobcats, it did more than throw him off.

"I wasn't sure if I was over-reacting but it was more pain than I'd ever felt before," Clifford told WBTV's Kristen Miranda.

When dinner with friends turned into an unexpected trip to the emergency room, Clifford knew it was time to make some changes.

Clifford shared his story with Kristen in the hopes that it might help you recognize the warning signs of heart trouble.
