The second NBA Game 7 of the day is underway on Sunday night, with the Phoenix Suns - the No. 1 seed in the West - hosting the Dallas Mavericks.

Veteran sideline reporter Allie LaForce is covering the game for Turner Sports.

LaForce, one of the top sideline reporters in the business, is an absolute pro. She comes from quite the sports family, too.

The Ohio native is married to Major League Baseball pitcher Joe Smith - one of the best relievers in the league.

Smith, who currently pitches for the Minnesota Twins, messaged LaForce when she was a reporter in Ohio. The happy couple was married in 2015.

Joe and Allie announced earlier this year that they are expecting their first child. 

Over the years, Joe and Allie have opened up about their personal battles. Joe's mom and grandmother both succumbed to Huntington's disease. There's a chance Joe carries the gene, though he doesn't wish to be tested.

Both Joe and Allie have done a tremendous amount to help the fight against Huntington's and hopefully find a cure.

The sports world has certainly been a nice outlet for Joe and Allie, as well.

All of the best to Joe and Allie moving forward.

Game 7 is currently airing on TNT.
