In the midst of hundreds of Israeli flags waving in the stands Wednesday night, Rockets forward Omri Casspi had one of his best games of the season.

It was Israel Night at the Toyota Center on Wednesday, and Casspi gave some of his biggest fans quite a show. He had a season-high 20 points and tied a career high with 12 rebounds.

There were 450 fans from Houston’s Israeli community in attendance, the Consulate General of Israel attended the game, and 3,000 flags were given out to fans as they entered the arena
