  5. If teams don't start double and triple teaming Jeremy Lin, he's gonna keep getting into the paint and finding guys underneath for easy scores.

    Even though the Rockets don't have a creative post up presence, they've got ATHLETES. When Lin gets into the paint at will, he finds those athletes and they jump over the rim or shoot their barely contested shots. Plus, Lin himself can easily finish at the rim.

    Opposing coaches need to angle Lin away from the paint by jamming his driving lane with a big man. Then they need to shut down his passing options. The goal would be to turn Lin into a scorer and make the young Rockets try to create for themselves.

  6. Anyone who wants to see Houston preseason games and all regular games via live stream, they can go to and click the basketball symbol. Go to top of the browser and get the Russian words translated to English and then you will see Houston game link. I have NBA League Pass but this allows me to view only regular Houston games. The clarity will depend on how fast your internet connection is. This is the best live stream I found so far. If anyone knows a better one, let me know.

  7. I just spoke with League Pass broadband, they showed the OKC game as a test of the system. Rest of the preseason is not scheduled. Tonight's game against the Hornet is on LP TV @8pm team channel 2.

  8. Post practice interviews:

    McHale just always seems so unsure about the team's status during the interviews.

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. JL after the first game w Houston Chronicle reporter: "I forgot how fun games are," Lin told the Chronicle. "It had been so long, since March. It's a lot of fun to play. I just forgot the feeling. I got it back now."

    That sounds like the prelaunch sequence of Linsanity 2.0. Godspeed Jeremy.

  11. Jlin - postgame[Rox vs OKC]
    "Knee felt great...Today I felt the best I've felt in a while."

    Jeremy Lamb could sit out tonight with a sore left foot. Could open time for Forbes, Livingston.

    GM @dmorey told @sportstalk790 the Rockets have no plans to add a veteran: "We went in with the strategic plan to be as young as we are."
