Tracy McGrady did what? Excuse me, but 26 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists, in his first game since before Christmas is pretty strong. Yeah, no way this guy could have helped the Rockets the last two months. (That's almost as bad as the Pacers trying to convince people that T.J. Ford — 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting off the bench against the Rockets — shouldn't be on the floor.) Did I mention that the Rockets were 10-13 from the time they told McGrady he wasn't good enough to play with them until last week's trade deadline? McGrady will be up and down as he builds back fro the knee surgery, but any of those ups — like the one he had Saturday night — could have helped the Rockets maintain a solid position in the playoff race. It didn't make a lot of sense at the time, and makes even less sense now.
