McGRADY INJUREDHouston star Tracy McGrady left the game in the second quarter after tweaking a gimpy knee. He did not return. On a team full of All-Stars, it was Luis Scola, not Yao Ming, Ron Artest or McGrady, who burned the Thunder. Scola scored 23 points, 21 the first three quarters. "They were trying to protect Yao, and Luis was the guy that was open,” said Houston coach Rick Adelman. "He made some big shots for us.”
WILCOX TO PLAY WEDNESDAYThunder forward Chris Wilcox, sidelined by a sprained knee, suited out for the first time in a week. Coach P.J. Carlesimo considered playing him but decided to wait until Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. Wilcox averaged 13.4 points and 7.
