Sources: Support still high for Rockets' McHale
ESPN 134+ SHARES
Sources say McHale likewise is regarded as a favorite of Rockets owner Les Alexander.
The Rockets tried hard all season to find a workable trade built around reserve center Omer Asik to fill one (or more) of those needs.
This is the fourth time the Rockets have lost the first two games of a playoff series at home.
Houston is averaging just 16.5 fast-break points in the two games after averaging 18.5 fast-break points (third-best in the NBA) this season.
Sources told ESPN.com's Tom Haberstroh that the Rockets are "strongly considering" starting Asik in Game 3. "You can make little tweaks," McHale said.
