Brandon Armstrong recreates Tracy McGrady's famous 13 points in 35 seconds

B.A. pays homage to one of the coolest moments in Rockets history.

NBA impersonator Brandon Armstrong (or B.A.) is pretty well-known at this point. He usually does over-exaggerated and mostly hilarious versions of well-known players, past and present. He's done everything from Shaquille O'Neal stomping down the court and looking at his hand after a dunk, to an overly-gesticulating James Harden stepping back, driving to the cup and, of course, cooking.

Despite playing to the prevalent Harden misconceptions we usually rail against here at TDS, I have to admit I about died laughing when he actually busted out the sauce pan and spatula.

Now Armstrong has done one that is truly awesome, recreating Tracy McGrady's famous 13 points in 35 seconds against the San Antonio Spurs back on December 9, 2004. For anyone who somehow, someway doesn't know this already, T-Mac led the Rockets back from an 8-point deficit by hitting four three-pointers, including a four-point play, to score 13 points entirely by himself in the final 35 seconds of the game to spring the Rockets to a legendary 81-80 victory over their cross-state rivals.

In case you forgot (or never saw) what it looked like, here's the clip:

And here's Brandon Armstrong's version. Make sure your sound is on when you play this one. He even dubbed in and synced up the audio, so you get Marv Albert's commentary right alongside B.A.'s impersonation.

Well done, B.A. Pretty impressive. I may even start to forgive you for your Harden video.
