Kevin McHale returned to coach the Rockets on Saturday, after being away from the team for an extended leave of absence due to the passing of his daughter a couple of weeks back.

Before tip-off, the Mavericks players lined up to individually greet, hug, and shake hands with McHale as a show of empathy for all that he’s been through.

Great, great moment.
