here's a few things I found funny about the game:
: "It's been a while since we've been on a streak on the winning side,'' McGrady said. "I guess it took that 19-game losing streak for us to realize that we could be a pretty good team if we could all stay focused and execute on both ends of the court.''
McGrady, who scored 12 points in the first quarter despite a disastrous attempt at an early dunk, hit consecutive 3-pointers in the third quarter to give the Magic its 11-point lead at 68-57.
"That's what we need because I can get it going at any given time,'' McGrady said. "It was good for my team to start knocking down shots and making plays to help us out because those guys did start loading up on me.''
Point guard Gilbert Arenas, wearing a road jersey, blue sweats and a headband instead of street clothes, sat out his eighth straight game yet still found a way to hurt his team from the bench. He was called for two technical fouls and ejected with 1.4 seconds left in the first quarter after saying something to official Bernie Fryer.
First off, I don't think winning 2 games is considered a winning streak, T-Mac might need to look at a real team to see what a winning streak is (i.e. Lakers). And he said they "were a pretty good team"...a pretty good team doesn't lose 19 straight, and can beat an injury stricken Wizards by more than 4 points.
Also, T-Mac said he could get going at any time, if this was true then why does he shoot so poorly and can't seem to step up and lead his team to victory on more than 2 occasions. You want to see guys that can get going at any time, then watch Kobe, KG, Vince, Pierce, AI, B. Davis...T-Mac is not on that list.
And, as far as Arenas getting ejected...that's just hysterical. E. Jordan has to be able to control his players, even if they are injured and not playing. It just makes Arenas look childish for not being able to hold his tongue. I thought he was supposed to be out there cheering for his team and give them moral support...well instead he gets ejected and costs them 2 points, I don't see how that's beneficial to the Wiz.
