Rockets @ Jazz Game #11 Thread

  1. They won't be guarding Jeremy so tight... he should have some good looks. Hopefully he hits them and this shooting slump dies.

  2. Harden is sick tonight but playing

    ReplyDelete
  3. Utah is ranked #1 defense at home allowing 87ppg in 3-0 win so excellent ball movement and quick transition offense are a must if Houston wants to win this game.

  4. Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare for another planned and intentional let down by yours truly, Jeremy Lin.

    You've been warned.

  6. Linsanity 2.0 ...it is Linsane. Once ball leaves his hands it is getting worse.... 2 feet from his hands..you know it's short...barely draws rim. Confidence is shot. SHOT. Pitiful to watch really.

    1. keep this up and he won't need a shooting coach first. He actually needs a sports psychologist...I'm not joking. LJ did.

  7. Rockets were up by 10-4 ... turn over the ball and take some terrible shots ... Coach doesn't call timeout until 7-0 run by the Jazz to lead 11-0. The do-nothing coach.

    1. Every one of their missed jumpshots come up short. Every Lin jumpshot is straight, but only hits the front lip of the rim. Looks like a lack of power on the shots.

  10. 1st quarter and the Rockets looking tired already. They don't seem to recover that well on back-to-back games.

    1. They do look sluggish. Hope the bench can help to keep the game close so the starters can get more rest.

      Delete
    2. I think it is also because of the fact that they lost 2 consecutive away games so far. It can make the whole team lose confidence. Hope they can pick it up soon. Also, Asik has been playing so hard since the pre season he needs some rest and now Harden is sick...

      Delete
    3. The bench is just terrible. A couple TOs, 2 missed 3PTs by Douglas. And Harden is so sick he can't play tight defense.

      No transition defense at all.

      Game over.

  14. JLin should look to attack the basket rather than settling for jump shots. He has no confidence in any shot outside the paint (and many inside the paint).

    Either that, or he should try a two-handed set shot. It can't be any worse than he is shooting now.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Is it me or TD got a butt load of playing time under Sampson now?

  16. Hmmmm! Doesn't look good tonight! Playing like shit

    1. JLin should be giving a part of his paycheck to TD ... for making him look good in comparison no matter how much Jeremy is struggling.

    2. On the other hand it can't be fun to see a -3 deficit turn into a -14 point blowout whenever you are off the floor

  18. Sampson lets the Jazz go on a 14-0 run with Cole Aldrich limping up and down the court on 4 possesions. Does not call time out.

  23. Hardens defense is so OFF THE CHARTS AWFUL tonight ... its AMAZINGLY BAD. I mean this is a clinic in BAD DEFENSE. The NBA has become a complete joke. They don't practice. They buy athletic talent and roll out the ball. Giving the ball to the highest paid player. And ... im not gonna pull any punches JLINS transition defense has been very spotty. he doesnt get back nearly far enough and picks up the ball way to early when the basket is not yet covered.

    1. Normally I get a little bit annoyed by unwarranted criticism of Harden (such as "hero ball") but he's really really bad today. If he's sick let him sit.

    2. totally agree wifflex2 ... totally agree. sit him. great opportunity to let jlin run the offense and get some shots up. Sampson should be telling LIN I want 20 shots today. get yourself untracked. no hesitation. jack, jack, jack. ...

      but Sampson won't because he's got to get TONY D proper minutes

    ReplyDelete
  33. In terms of skill, Jeremy is the second best rebounder on the team. By far.

    This is a major problem. Patterson and Parsons can't rebound AT ALL.

    Jeremy playing very aggressive with Harden flu-ridden.

    1. Maybe they should take Harden out then. Ive been wanting to see JLin and Douglas play together...

    2. I agree. Terrence Jones (3 REB) is more effective than Patterson (1 REB) who tends to "disappear".

      Delete
    3. Parsons rebounds just fine. It's the PF Patterson and Morris that don't rebound well. On offense both of them camp out mostly on the 3 pt area. Can't expect Asik to rebound every ball.

      Delete
    4. Parsons is averaging 6.3 rebounds a game. Patterson is averaging 5.3 a game. And Asik is a top 5 rebounder int the entire league so there isn't as many opportunities to go around.

    1. 17 down isn't out of reach. Jazz looked like they relaxed at the end of the 1st half. Maybe they figure with Harden struggling, they have the game won already.

      That'd be a set up for Lin to do something special. He's 10 and 2 now. Going 25 (30 would work, too) and 12 leading a comeback win isn't out of reach for Lin.

      Lin doesn't even have to shoot a lot from outside. He sliced up the same Jazz frontcourt (- Marvin Williams) last season in Game 2 of Linsanity.

      Delete
  36. Dont understand the coach here, why take the risk and play JH? He is sick, read my lip, "your player is not feeling well"!

    Might as well, let him rest and recover for the next home game. He already went thru 2 tough games on the road! Jeez, talk about 'smart coaching' :(

    4. because to the coach, harden is the core of the team, so he's going to play him no matter how bad he feels:(!

      Delete
  37. Harden sick, huh? Looked like he gave it a try and is dazed and just out of it.

    Lin should have a big 2nd half.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Just let JLin lead this team 2nd half and watch the comeback win. But knowing Sampson, he will bench Lin the minute Lin make a mistake, and he's cool if Harden repeatedly making mistakes after mistakes.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Half-time thoughts:

    - JLin is playing quite well, being aggressive and going to the basket, and not deferring to Harden all the time. He seems to be in rhythm, and while his teammates seem dispirited, he seems to be trying hard out there.

    - JLin still overhelps at times though, but I am thinking this is might be a Coach Sampson thing. On the other hand, he is playing better on defence than most of his teammates, who look like a confused mob out there.

    - The Rockets are a turnover machine. Goodness.

    - Harden seems both mentally and physically out of it. He needs to learn that if he's the No 1 player on the team, he's going to have to play well even when he feels bad. His utter lack of effort on defence is very obvious.

    - McHale, it appears, is better than we all thought... Well, KHuang always like McHale but I thought he was kind of sucky. Until Sampson took over. Gosh.

    1. some one said he is sick up there, if that's the case, it's reasonable for his performance tonight so far, because hey, we all have days like that! should definitely forgive for some occasion event like that!

  40. I dont know...I might be wrong here, but for some reason, I think JLin is purposely playing it cold?! If we were to watch all the last few games, we have seen some glimpses of Linsanity, he is not doing it all the time. Why? only he can answer, that.

    I dont think he has lost it, its just...hmm, I dont know what is in his mind, is it the coach, or the team, or JH? Something is truly bothering him. And I dont think its his confidence, at all, although, beginning of the season, thats what I thought.

  41. Houston's defensive plan does not include double teaming.

  42. Sigh.

    Play TJ already.

    TD and Lin actually makes a half decent backcourt, its better than a sick Harden just standing there, TD actually tries to D.

    The Utah announcers said "circus shot" on that skilled reverse layup. Ha!

    1. Lin smoked the Jazz last season during Linsanity, so he knows he can score at the basket on the Jazz bigs. Lin can have a big night without relying on jumpers.

      Harden officially done for the night. Gonna be fun.

      Delete
    2. His layups will help to find his rhythm with midrange-jumpers, I hope. There is little chance for Houston to come back unless the defense stays solid and the offense get hot on 3PT-ers

      Delete
  46. It's clearly better without harden on the court .

    ReplyDelete
  47. whatever game he has tonight won't matter in my eyes until he starts hitting a jump shot. But it is good for his confidence to just make layups. Please stop saying his knees aren't good yet. I can see he isn't all there compared to last year in NY just by his finishes, but that doesn't tell me why his shots are way left and/or short. Please you pro-Lin fans.

  49. Why is Parsons running the offense like a point guard? Lin is on the floor ...

    Replies
    1. The initial Rockets lead disappeared when Parsons decided to start driving the ball up the court. One of his awful turnovers really changed the momentum of the game.

      Not sure why the Rockets insist on doing this when their forwards really aren't very good passers or ball handlers...

      Delete
    2. Because the coach has NO confidence in Lin's ballhandling and playmaking abilities.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Jeremy Lin is just a marketing ploy for this team...worst thing that could happen to them is that Lin produces so they would have a 80 mill vs. 25 mill controversy.

    If you notice Harden and Parsons are featured more than Lin based on playing time and substitution patterns alone.

  58. Walk 2 stop gambling ...is a LIN HATER. I appreciate Sampson sitting Lin out as Lin cuts the lead to 10. A 20 pt lead caused by sitting Lin out in the first place.

    I been saying this before. They are trying everything to minimize LIN. Lin should be frustrated. He is constantly getting bench for no reason. They don't run the PNR for him. A game that harden is sick, is a chance for Lin to display his talents but the coach sits him for Douglas who has 0 pts. Doesn't make sense there's only one reason. They can't let lin shine because they paid 80 mil and so they have to sit him out and minimize him. This is bull ****

    ReplyDelete
  59. It might be good for the rockets to keep losing. A coaching change is always the first thing a team does when the team loses too many games.

    Sampson substitutions are puzzling.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wait. What?

    I was all ready for Lin to take over. He sliced up the Jazz last year. And then Sampson took him out for the rest of the 3Q.

    Maybe Lin is on a minutes limit after all. If he plays the entire 4Q, he'll be at 36 min for the game.

    ReplyDelete
  61. TANKING- this is the only explanation. These coaches armed with the orders by the management are doing everything to lose games. That's why he HAS TO take out productive players like Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  62. This game LOST when they sub out JLIN ... whos playing well ... and they let PARSONS and Douglas run the show ... completely kill the mojo. This is INFURIATING.

    ReplyDelete
  63. How depressing it must be for Lin to come back to the game with a larger deficit than when you come out.

    ReplyDelete
  64. lmao...ASIKS.......Jeremy Lin will not be sending you any gifts for xmas...you get enough free layups you miss...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Lin missed two layups in one possession.

    He has missed a lot of shots in the paint.

    ReplyDelete
  66. No comeback is going to happen. The only interior defense is Asik. The PF are weak.

    Houston's PF are shooting guard trapped in PF bodies.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Why no Patterson who scored 19 points?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Unbearable!!! They didn't have any productive contribute taking out Lin on the third quarter n now putting Lin back on 4th quarter to suffer blame for losing the game in big leads.

    ReplyDelete
  69. The coaching staff don't want to want this game, simple as that. That's why they benched productive players like Lin and Patterson and let unproductive players like Asik, Parsons, Douglas keep playing. They are probably afraid that a comeback win without Harden here would reflect badly on their franchise player. They don't want the world talking they are better without Harden.

    3. Yep agreed...Improved he might be, but him not being a scoring threat puts pressure on everyone else.

      Someone slap him silly plz, get rid of his friend and get a real trainer, and get rid of doc and get a real shooting coach. His stamina is shot, look at how tired he was beginning of 4th after coming back from resting.

      Was afraid he spent too much time doing PR crap and sure enough he still has no stamina. He has speed for a few spurts and that's it.

      His defense doesn't look as tight as before either.

    4. Lydia like that matters really lets be realistic hes been playing 30+ mins a game. Second most playing time behind parsons today only by 1 minute. He had plently of time to produce but doesn't. Star players produce, he does not. To be fair, that is.

    1. Him missing all those layups, including a wide open uncontested layup while he was standing still under the basket, was extremely worrying.

    2. No, he will stay the same. He is a headcase now. I want him to hit rock bottom before coach/team brings a shooting coach for him. Whoever they have now isn't work for him. They will have no choice. What happens is his teammates will or continue to lose confidence in him and it will be second nature to skip Lin. Lin will see this and feed off the free looks and freeze up when he does get it. It is perpetual. Only Lin can free himself by hitting some shots to win over his trust with his teammates. He is so predictable right now. If you scout him, you wouldn't even try to stop him from shooting any shot outside of 10 feet. That is TEN feet. I like to know what his REAL shooting percent from 10+ out. It must be like 28%. No joke. His layups/floaters are keeping him above water.

      Delete
    3. 5-15 yes but that was only after that strange line up the coaches had in. No play makers looked like defense non- existant

      Delete
  75. This sucks. This is not the same Lin that we saw last season. He's got no fire or swag on the court. No confidence on his jump shot, his penetration is not effective. I don't don't if he's not healthy or he is just all of the sudden becoming afraid of the expectation from everyone. If he keeps playing like this, he will be served a well deserved demotion back to being a backup mediocre player that he's showing us now.

    4. Jazz don't have great perimeter defenders. He's driving past his man because they know he won't get past their shot blockers patrolling the paint. Jazz defense around the basket is like a bank vault.

  80. Does someone in here have direct access to Jeremy? I am serious he needs to be a lot more aggressive to drive to the basket no matter he makes it or not. He passed up too many good shots. Rocket needs him to very aggressive. Just Harden not enough. Please pass this message to Jeremy.

  82. Lin simply has no confidence in his shooting at any distance.

    He is missing shots in the paint and worse yet finishing LAYUPS It's like Lin has no upper body control and can't get off a shot under control when in traffic near the rim.

  83. Yep Lin is being treated like a bench scrub, it doesn't matter if he improved vastly, not able to score on open looks you will lose the confidence of your team.

    And he looks tired after 25-27mins, his stamina is the suck. I was thinking Sampson was being an ass, but I starting to think think JLin is limited in minutes because his stamina is garbage.

    Gawd fire your friend the so called strength and conditioning trainer plz and get rid of Doc, you need NBA pro help Lin, seriously.

    1. Can't be blaming the shooting coach. It's the same shooting coach for Lin last year when he played well. I think the knee is not giving him problems physically but mentally. Most athlete are never the same after a knee injury. You may feel fine but the mental part gets to you during games. I suffer 2 ACL injuries and after I was healed it was just not the same anymore. You feel like you are starting everything all over again.

    1. Maybe Lin dropped moves from his arsenal that force more torque on his knees.

    2. To shield the ball away from the bigs, but he couldn't elevate high enough to do it. He was able to jump much higher last year ... was even able to dunk the ball once.

      Delete
    3. The thing about Lin is that opposing teams know that he will try to finish at the rim, so they just wait for him there and try to block/alter his shot.

      Lin needs a mid-range game, like a consistent jumper in the paint that he can rely upon without having to go to the rim on every drive.

      Lin cannot finish at the rim with confidence right now.

      Delete
    4. Most pg does mid range jump shot! Rondo , Parker, Christ Paul , almost every pg . How come he doesn't do it ? Drive in everytime ? This is not good ! Jesus Christ '

      To them JLin is now officially a flash in the pan...17 games (counting preseason) isn't a slump, its a habit.

  88. Why are you blaming Lin?

  89. the best news for Jeremy Lin fans would be that he has been playing on another meniscus tear. "oh!!! that is why he is missing all these shots"... that would only save him now. You think he didn't like the attention he got with Linsanity? Wait till the media start harping on the other part of Linsanity-not. Wait till he gets to NY and the media + espn takes hold of that. That just might get him out of his funk. Maybe not. He will get the trashing...overpaid, 32% shooting PG. Exposed as backup PG. Wow...talk about getting more pressure than in NY. He is lucky he is in Houston. But still...the heat from media will be there. Are you mentally tough enough Jeremy?

  90. The one positive of Lin's game is his rebounding. He had 6 rebounds today.

    Maybe they should play Lin as a power forward? LOL.

  94. With Harden out of the game in the 2nd half, I was hoping this would be JLin's time to shine and show that he can run the team.

    But then he gives the ball to Parsons to run the offense for 5 whole minutes while he parks himself behind the 3-point line....

    I'm starting to think that Lin hates being in the spotlight so much that he doesn't want to step up and become a star. Staying humble, always humble, even at the expense of losing.

    1. Lin wasn't humble last season. Maybe he needs a Jared Jeffries type of teammate to encourage him to rise up and take over when he's having a rough night.

    1. The loser is Lin and the Rockets now, wake up and stop living in your Linmaginary dream world. I am just stating the facts.

    2. Zball168 , you better wake up and take a look for the last four game , the reason Rocket lose not because of Lin , It is on Harden . Did u understood ? U did not want to say anything about that , right . How many years Harden playing in NBA ?

    4. I don't like Harden's ISO-Heroic game as well, no argument there. I hate to break the bad news to you, but this is not the same Lin that we experienced last year, and that's a fact.

      Delete
    5. I am not the only one talking about the Knicks here. May we the reason why people bring up the Knicks is because THE ROCKETS WILL PLAY THE KNICKS ON FRIDAY!!! If Lin and the rockets are playing the way that we have been playing, a blow-out might be an under statement. Do I want to see that, hells no. I sure hope Lin will step up and play like Linsanity, but it's not looking good man.

  98. Its heck alot worse if lin is playing this way for league minimun.
    At least he capitalized on his one and only opportunity and got paid for it.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Worrisome sign: After Lin came back in to start the 4Q, the team was out of whack. Even though it was an odd line-up, they were behind, and Lin wasn't scoring, Lin should still have been in control as the floor general PG bringing order and calm to his team on the court. He wasn't. The Rockets were a mess and Lin was on the margin rather than the center of his team's play.

    Worse, it seemed like he was shying away from taking control. There was a play where Daquean Cook (Daquean Cook!) actually had to wave Lin to come over to take the ball from Cook. Not a good showing from Lin.

    1. Yeah, saw that, Cook was like "COME HERE!!! COME HERE!!!" took Lin a bit to realize he was talking to him.

      I don't know, I know he's a man of faith and everything, but maybe he just needs to get laid, blow off some steam.

    2. Yeah, I don't see the leadership from Lin this season. He seems to defer to harden and is scared to assume leadership. Is it his meek personality trying not to "show up" his teammates and coaches now that he got the big contract? Cause if you remember last year, Lin totally was the floor general, directing orders, celebrating after big plays, roaring...remember the flying chest bumps with novak? Remember the screams with Tyson chandler? REMEMBER THE BAND AID HANGING FROM HIS CHIN looking like a WARRIOR? WHERE IS THATTT?????? GO Youtube lin vs jazz, 2nd game of linsanity last year..barely second game and he was already the general..WTF!!

  100. The avg age is so young ,and it is under bad bad coaching . I think Rockets are doing OK . I remember how the Lebone James doing as NO #1 pick for the first NBA season .

    ReplyDelete
  101. I'm sorry but it's kinda hard to play with confidence when there is no green light from the coaching staff. Lin will not get any better with this type of organization. He can only get better with a long term organization that is willing to trust and motivate him as a starting PG. As for tonight....mainly poor finish and shooting.

    2. I am starting to agree with Khuang. His shooting coach sucks and jlin is falling into it. he needs to pay big bucks for a real shooting coach.

  102. Those who say Lin is the loser has no business sense and is idiotic. Lin won big time. he's set for life and more playing a child' game

    1. ok, i'm the biggest lin fan ever, but comments like these are totally irrelevant and cop outs. So what? We are talking about JLIN in "basketball" terms, not anything else. Calling basketball a child's game? THen what are you watching for? JLIN transcends a "child' game". Its this kind of attitude that doens't help future asian kids have the attidue to become leaders. You should want to be the best at whatever you do not just say, " oh wel, I got paid. who cares?. I understand being mad at the haters, but come on!

    3. ok, if you really want him to follow the road of vince carter and all the scrubs who have no passion or drive, then I guess he won. In that world ,there would be no KObe or jordan....why keep trying to improve when you already have a ring and a gazillion dollars? Does pride not mean anything?

    1. ok, he won! we understand that...but is that really all you want in life? Get lucky, then never try again. Get that raise, then stop aspiring. Get that wife, then who cares about working to become a better husband. WTF. i mean, i know he won in terms of financial stability and fame. Who in the nba isn't winning? BUT WHO CARES? I am happy for lin that he is this successful, but we LIN FANs, want to him to be the best that he can BE!
