Lue: 3 friends among those shot in Las Vegas massacre

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said Wednesday that three friends were among the more than 500 people shot Sunday night during a country music concert on the Las Vegas strip.

"I knew you guys would probably bring it up. I've been touched by a few people who'd gotten injured, who'd gotten shot," Lue said, according to's Joe Vardon. "When you're going through your phone and so many people who lived out there, were great friends of yours and took care of you, you've been around for so long. It's just tough to go through that experience."

Lue owns a house in Las Vegas and has lived there for the past nine offseasons.

Fifty-nine people were confirmed dead as of Wednesday, with hundreds more treated for gunshot wounds after Stephen C. Paddock opened fire on the concert from a 32nd-floor suite at the Mandalay Bay resort.

"I feel sorry for all the loved ones of each one that lost someone or been badly hurt," Lue said.

Earlier on Wednesday Lue's opponent in the last two NBA Finals, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, spoke about the tragedy, calling for sensible reforms to U.S. gun laws.

Kerr's father Malcolm was a professor at the American University of Beirut when he was shot dead in 1984.
