|Kevin McHale and the Rockets took down Doc Rivers' Clippers yesterday to complete a historic comeback.|
Even more impressive, the 3-1 comeback is McHale's second:
Kevin McHale: only person to come back from a 3-1 series deficit as an NBA player AND as a head coach— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) May 17, 2015
He overcame the same feat as a player on the 1980-81 Celtics down 3-1 to the Philadelphia 76ers in the conference finals. The Celtics would go on to win the NBA championship that year.
McHale and the Rockets will look to continue their success against the NBA's best Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. Game 1 takes place on Tuesday at 9 PM ET.
