I literally can’t bear to watch the Wizards-Cavs game. If we’re very, very lucky will get to go down to the sort of defeat with dignity that I feel Orlando extracted from Detroit last night. The interesting game, however, was obviously Rockets-Jazz. The poetry of Tracy McGrady falling down on the job after his “it’s on me” interview jag — scoring one point in the first half — and then turning it on like only T-Mac (well, okay, only T-Mac and Kobe) can do to win the game was brilliant. And, of course, Yao who’s really perfected the quiet 28/13 game.
