Every night there are some stupendous, silly, stupid, or downright outlandish individual
Get Tracy McGrady on the court and he's trouble, last night he messed around and got a triple-double -- he scored 20 with 14 boards and 10 assists. Considering the Rockets held on to beat the Nuggets, owners of the best record in the West this side of the Lakers, you could say it was good day.
McGrady has clearly benefited from the two weeks of rest he took earlier this month due to soreness in his surgically-repaired knee -- he finished one assist shy of a triple-double in his first game back last Friday, which was another win for the Rockets. If he keeps this up, the Houston Chronicle might have to create a snarky triple-double ticker on their Rockets home page.
Rated Rookie:D.J. Augustin has had a lot of impressive games, but he set a new career-high with 29 points in an overtime win over the Bulls. Raja Bell technically started the game, but he went scoreless in eight minutes while Augustin played a whopping 45 minutes off the bench, adding seven assists and shooting 13-13 from the charity stripe.
Nate-Rob's red-hot: I know I mentioned him yesterday, but Nate Robinson has been killing it for the Knicks ever since coming back from a groin injury. He scored 33 points in 33 minutes and almost helped the Knicks to an upset over the Lakers at the Staples Center.
