Tracy McGrady's 13 points in 33 seconds deserves a deep rewind

  • Published on Apr 27, 2019
  • It’s December 9th, 2004, in Houston, Texas. Less than a third of the way through the regular season, the surging 16-4 Spurs are taking on the middling 8-11 Rockets. San Antonio is inbounding the ball up 2 points with 11.2 seconds left. But just a half-minute ago the Spurs were in full control up eight points.
    We’re used to this Spurs team. Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan continue to show why this team is a favorite to win their second championship in three years. Their opponents on the other hand verge on unrecognizable. A new arena, new jerseys, and a new look roster haven’t hidden the blemishes of this Rockets team. But with Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady, if nothing else, they’ve been very exciting and are looking to add themselves to the list of threats in the conference.
    So how did we get to this point so quickly: a team known for their stingy defense squandered an overwhelming lead? We’re about to reach the peak of a moment that’s regarded as one of the greatest individual comebacks in NBA History, but to get there and the moments leading up to the climb let’s rewind.

    My favorite player in the 2K's... Then injury took him down at the end of the decade.

    Spurs fan here. We enjoy success and greatness during big 3 era but also some heartbreaks i.e tmac 13 in 33. Obviously y'all remember ray allen 2013, but don't forget dirk's and 1 in 2006 game 7, and fish 0.4 shot. We were a stingy defense team but damn! Those squandered leads were unforgettable

    You can make your point without disrespecting other human beings who worked hard to get where they're at. No one in the NBA is a "bum". They're still the best in the world at what they do even if they aren't the best on the team.

    One of the few dark spots in the magical Spurs run of the mid-00's, and I'm not even mad about it. That performance was legendary. Thanks for rewinding just how beastly Timmy D. was during that stretch. #OldManRiverwalk #GoSpursGo Wish we could have gotten T-Mac a ring when he joined SA in 2013, but......that's probably a topic for another (painful) Rewind episode haha.
