Not long after Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle woke up Wednesday morning, he discovered that the Houston Rockets had fired coach Kevin McHale.

“It’s preposterous,” Carlisle said. “It’s beyond belief. I’m really shocked. It’s just hard to believe that something like that could happen at this stage.

“The guy took the team unexpectedly to the conference finals last year, and to have this happen after 11 games, preposterous is the only word that I can come up with.”
