Tracy McGrady Fuels the RocketsTracy McGrady played all 48 minutes and had 30 points, seven rebounds and four assists as the Houston Rockets beat the Charlotte Bobcats 89-80 to win their 21st straight game, the second longest winning streak in NBA history. The Rockets are now tied for first place in the Western Conference with the L.A. Lakers, setting up a dramatic showdown between the teams in Houston on Sunday.
McGrady's all-around excellence has fueled the Rockets' tremendous run, as I explain in my newest article for ProBasketballNews.com:
T-Mac Proves Worth During Streak (2/19/09 Note: the original PBN link has been destroyed, so I replaced it with a link to a 20 Second Timeout post that contains the complete, unedited text of the article as it appeared at PBN).
Here are links to game recaps that I have done during the Rockets' winning streak:
