Finally, T-Mac’s Chinese saga appears to be taking a turn for the better! This morning, McGrady and his Qingdao Eagles defeated the Liaoning Hunters — currently a playoff-caliber team — 99-97 for their third consecutive victory (!!!). In the midst of dropping a team-leading 31 points, McGrady threw down the impressive tomahawk slam in the video embedded above, then went on to drill the game-winning jump shot. With their three straight victories, the Eagles are yet to lose since McGrady was suspended one game for referring to game officials as “three blind mice” after a sketchy loss to Bayi. While Qingdao remains in last place at just 5-17, it’s been a surprising if inconsequential turnaround that has seen McGrady be showered with boisterous MVP chants at opposing arenas, according to NiuBball.com.
