Houston Rockets: Players Show Their Respect At Sasha McHale’s Funeral


Last night the Houston Rockets wore green bands on their jerseys to pay tribute to the late Sasha McHale. They came out of that game with a 117-101 win over the Toronto Raptors at home. After the game coach Kevin McHale texted his team and said “thank you” for getting him a win in such a tough time in his life.

The Rockets flew to Minnesota last night and attended Sasha’s funeral today before flying out to play the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight. The team expressed their feelings through twitter earlier today.
