The 15 Most Memorable NBA Christmas Day Moments

12. T-Mac Torches the Pistons

Year: 2002
Game: Magic vs. Pistons

Tracy was supposed to be injured leading up to the game, so everyone was suprised when he erupted for 46 points on 14 of 26 shots. He added 6 rebounds and 3 steals in case we thought he was playing. This was also the second time Tracy's teammate Grant Hill played his former team since signing with Orlando. Hill was hoping for a long, successful 2002-2003 campaign until his ankle betrayed him yet again. Grant struggled from the field scoring 10 points on 3-17 shooting, but grabbed 15 boards like a true professional. The Magic beat the Pistons 104-99 and Hill only played four more games that year.
