Tracy McGrady and the Houston Rockets are making it look easy, even against the best teams in the Western Conference.
This morning, McGrady scored 41 points and the Rockets stretched their winning streak to 18 games with a 106-96 victory over the New Orleans Hornets.
The Rockets have the NBA’s longest winning streak since the Lakers won 19 in a row in the 1999-2000 season. Houston became just the seventh team in history to win 18 or more consecutive games.
McGrady hit 17 of 27 shots, reaching 40 points for the fourth time this season. The Rockets also made a season-high 14 3-pointers. It’s hard to believe that the Rockets could rack up so many wins after Yao Ming went out with a foot injury. How did they do that?
The Rockets have won 27 of their last 30 games, the best record in the NBA since the beginning of 2008. They are setting records and breaking records at the same time. Honestly, I can’t believe that. But it’s the fact. That’s true. We all hope the Rockets will continue their way to get more wins.
18 + n – 0 at last? 19 or more than 20 wins? Let’s look towards.
