Tracy McGrady channels Tracy McGrady. Rockets win...

The Nuggets never had a chance against the Houston Rockets tonight, and now I'm just heartsick when I think about our playoff chances fading quicker by the day. I guess they figured they'll make up the game-and-a-half that we now find ourselves behind the Golden State Warriors during the week ahead...ugh.

Meanwhile, I've resorted to rooting for other teams to lose so my beloved Nuggets can squeak into the playoffs. My dark horse team to drop out of the West's top 8 (and thus, give the Nuggets a chance) is the Phoenix Suns, who we play on Wednesday. While I was 100% in favor of the Shaq trade, it hasn't exactly panned out.
