Former NBA player Grant Hill led a moment of silence at Oracle Arena before Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers to acknowledge the tragedy in Orlando.

On Sunday, a shooting at a gay nightclub left at least 50 people dead in Orlando. Police are investigating the shooting at the nightclub as a domestic terror incident after the shooter called 911 to pledge his allegiance to ISIS. The shooting is the worst of its kind in U.S. history.

LeBron James commented on the situation on Sunday.

“It’s another hit for us as Americans and what we have to deal with in our world today,” James said. “It definitely puts things in perspective on basketball for myself; it’s just a small matter of what reality really is. My prayers to all the lost ones and all the ones that are recovering from this morning’s tragedy in Orlando.”

A moment of silence in remembrance of the victims was held on Sunday before several MLB games, Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals and at NASCAR’s race in Michigan.
