George Kittle and his wife Claire are given a rapturous reception as they turn up courtside for Golden State Warriors game… after tight end helped 49ers book a Super Bowl spot
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle and his wife Claire received a standing ovation from the crowd while attending the Golden State Warriors’ 119-107 win against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The pair received their ovation as they were directed to their courtside seats as 76ers small forward Tobias Harris attempted to shoot free throws with 1:01 left in the first quarter.
Kittle and the 49ers are set for a Super Bowl rematch against the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas on February 11.
The five-time Pro Bowler and his wife have been married since 2019 after meeting as freshmen while attending the University of Iowa.
While attending the school, Claire was also an athlete, playing basketball for all four years before a knee injury cut her final season short.

Kittle was once again a fundamental part of the 49ers offense this season, finishing the regular season with 65 catches, 1,020 yards and six touchdowns in the 16 games he played.
He has also been effective during the 49ers postseason run this year, recording six catches for 108 yards and a touchdown so far.
Kittle was also seen tackling Warriors point guard Stephen Curry moments after the final buzzer of Golden State’s win.
Curry finished the game with 37 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
76ers center and reigning MVP Joel Embiid left the game with what appeared to be a knee injury he suffered during the fourth quarter after Warriors forward Jonathan Kuminga landed on his leg while diving for a loose ball.
