Warriors' Israeli player, Omri Casspi, delivers at game, lights menorah for Hanukkah

- The NBA’s only Israeli player, who happens to be a small forward for the Golden State Warriors, lit a menorah on the floor of the Oracle Arena Thursday night on the third night of Hanukkah.

Omri Casspi, along with San Francisco Chabad Rabbi Yosef Langer, twisted on the menorah lights after the Warriors beat the Dallas Mavericks 112-97, which also happened to be Jewish Heritage Night.

Not that the Warriors need any Hanukkah miracles to win, but Casspi delivered his best performance of the season – a special holiday treat as his family was in town from Israel.
