McHale takes leave of absence from Rockets
"I don't think it's that challenging," he said. "We have a young team and we have a new team. I think it would be a lot more challenging if we were ... the No. 1 ranked team in the league. That might be a little more challenging. We're still growing."
Sampson is in his second season with the Rockets after spending three years as an assistant with the Milwaukee Bucks.
