Elton Brand had four points, nine rebounds and two steals in the win against the Suns on Wednesday. That he was able to concentrate at all was impressive because prior to the game he learned that his three-year-old son, Elton Peace Brand, was taken by ambulance to the hospital after having an allergic reaction to a dairy product.

Brand and his wife were aware that their son was allergic to dairy, only his wife, Shahara, thought she was giving her son sorbet. It was only when his lips turned blue and he was struggling to breathe that Shahara called 911, realizing the product was an ice cream.
