The game on the Rockets’ home court at Toyota Center was won by the visiting Spurs, 111-106, but the nasty fights that broke out garnered plenty of postgame attention.
As of yet, there’s no information regarding the fisticuffs that multiple fans were involved in. However, given the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the sight of unmasked fans coming into close contact is a sight that neither the Rockets nor the NBA wants to see.
The Rockets are one of a number of NBA teams allowing fans to come to games.
Other franchises are choosing to have games played in empty arenas to limit the risk of spreading the virus.
