Good first half in Tracy McGrady debutPosted by Inside Hoops
Starting at shooting guard alongside Chris Duhon, Tracy McGrady looked very good and certainly better than expected in his New York Knicks debut Saturday night as the team hosts the Oklahoma City Thunder in Madison Square Garden.
T-Mac came out gunning and shot 7-of-12 for 19 points, two rebounds, three assists (two turnovers) and a steal in 17 first half minutes.
The Knicks lead 57-52 at the break.
Also in the first half, David Lee shot 6-of-9 for 16 points and five rebounds.
For the Thunder, Russell Westbrook (6-of-9) has 15 points and four rebounds. Kevin Durant (4-of-10) has 14.
The Knicks had 14 first half assists, the Thunder just six.
McGrady played six games for the Houston Rockets and has not been on the court since December 23 until tonight.
