    Was at this game as well. Probably my fondest "in person" memory of the Rockets.

    Hats off to Rocket hero Tracy McGrady.

    I watched the game in Austin and had it on my DVR for a long time. One of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I'm glad I didn't get out of my chair! Uh, actually, I did. Jumping up and down, yelling like crazy, dancing around. It was a beautiful half a minute.

    I still remember watching the game. If you had put my emotions on a roller coaster, they'd go drop all the way down and then they'd sky rocket up into space. When McGrady made that 3 to give us the lead, I yelled with extreme excitement. Had a soar throat next day :D

    I still get chills when I hear "Here comes McGrady, no timeouts remaining! McGrady, for the win....YESSS!!!"

    and the other host just says something "OHHH!"-like in disbelief. I mean, how did that HAPPEN?

    Incredible. One of the best things I've ever seen. I just watched the end half a dozen times, lol.

    What was crazy is that I remember the second Brown lost the ball I had no doubt T-Mac would make the shot. The way the other two shots went in he just wasn't going to be denied.

    I was at that game. Count me as one of those that left early. When I get home, I couldn't believe that they won.

    I was there with my pops. A Spurs fan was clowning all of us Rocket fans right in front of us.

    When McGrady made the 4 point play, I didn't sit again. I ran around the concourse yelling "they said we should have kept Steve Francis" over and over until my head hurt. Literally had a headache. Great night, epic moment.
