Kevin McHale: 'Houston Rockets couldn't handle Phoenix Suns' aggression'

Houston Rockets head coach Kevin McHale believes that the team did not handle the Phoenix Suns' aggressive style of play.

Kevin McHale has said that the Houston Rockets failed to handle the Phoenix Suns' aggressive style of play in their NBA game last night.

The home side turned the ball over 23 times in the 97-88 defeat, which was the Suns' first win in three games.

The Rockets coach told reporters: "In the first quarter, Phoenix came up and got real aggressive with us and were denying us around the court. We didn't handle that very well, and then you compound that with shots not going.

"We had no flow tonight. I just thought the 13 assists, 23 turnovers, some really errant passing. We gave up 25 points off our turnovers, so we just fed them."

The Rockets face the Golden State Warriors tomorrow.
