  2. Ty Lawson is definitely going hard at Lin. Dude looks like he wants to prove something.

    1. He wants to prove that last game where he scored about 20+ points wasn't a fluke and Lin can't defend him.

      Delete
    2. I think so, too. It's too bad that Lawson's doing a pretty shitty job of it though.

      Delete
    3. But Lin is all ovah dat boy!

      Delete
  3. Harden needs to take over (he does) when Lin is out

    ReplyDelete
  4. Parsons is a good spot up shooter yes but he has limited playmaking/passing skills. Also don't use him on iso. Lawson on him and he couldn't take advantage and travel lol.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Delfino, 1 year contract, stealing minutes from rookies. Too bad Houston have no reliable 3 man with range

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What are you talking about. Delfino is a steal for Houston. He has proven that. I like Delfino.

    2. steadying vet influence, nebulous label

  6. Iggy on drive, Houston players parted like the red sea. Thank goodness it was a miss

    ReplyDelete
  7. Rockets strong in 3rd 8pt lead so far, atm foul on TD timeout.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think Lin's taken out for being too selfish on that fastbreak and missed layup.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not selfish (McHale doesn't care if it goes in) but foolish.

      He's not gonna get that call and he shouldn't tempt fate.

      Delete
  9. Asik does have one offensive skill -- tip-ins.

    Quick hook for Jeremy. McHale did NOT like that wild-layup. And I actually agree.

    Jeremy better play the entire 4th, though. His playmaking and defense have been great.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Harden hero ball is causing the game to come to a slow halt again. He is trying to get bail out by throwing his signature move.

    ReplyDelete
  11. impressive mini trap by denver, but the ball handler was douglas.

    ReplyDelete
  12. wow, that was a crazy make by harden

    ReplyDelete
  13. 17 on 7. very deserving of the 80 million

    1. qualify this statement, at least for tonight

  14. They are really locking down on D (Nuggets).

    Harden's and 1 is huge atm.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Time for Lin to come back b4 these Rox start to run around like chickens without their heads.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Parsons, Harden and Asik combined for 11 turnovers lol and it's only the middle of 3rd. How many possessions do they need to throw away? And how many turnovers do they need to get before McHale realize they are NOT playmakers?

    ReplyDelete
  17. With Lin on the bench, the 8 points lead has gotten down to 1 point lead now.

    ReplyDelete
  18. andre miller is like 40 yrs old. that was a good shot

    ReplyDelete
  19. Beautiful spin by morris.

    Gawd 1 pt game :/

    ReplyDelete
  20. don't know why we barely see JLin and TD on the court at the same time!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We did, barely a couple of minutes in the 2nd quarter and then McHale sub out TD for Harden.

      Delete
    2. maybe we should say barely use....

      Delete
  21. Can someone tell me, in layman's terms, what 3-second violation mean? I still don't understand. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You have two defenders guarding a man without the ball for 3 seconds.

      Delete
    2. can't sit in the painted area near the rim for more than 3 seconds. have to "Clear" out then you can reenter.

      Delete
    3. That's 3 seconds violation. I thought you meant defensive 3 seconds.

      Delete
    4. To be precise - you cant stay in the paint for more than 3 seconds unless you are guarding an opponent.

      Delete
    5. @John Ly:

      We are talking about the defensive three seconds violation

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defensive_three-second_violation

      There is also the three seconds rule...

      Delete
  22. they need to play montejunas. he is at least a 7'0" body that will stall some of these tip ins and penetrations when lin and asik is out. I believe he could shoot the 3s like delfino.

    montejunas is soft right now so that makes him a perfect 3. then again, who knows what's going on in practices

    1. bck to back Toney D.

      he will not lost minutes. apple of this staff's eye

      Delete
  24. Lookout, the beard is starting to go nuts, look at them crazy eyes. ISO ball is popping up. Better put Lin back in control.

    ReplyDelete
  25. wow TD w/ those consecutive steals :>

    ReplyDelete
  26. DOUGLAS!!!!!!!!! TWICE!!!!!!!!! GOOO!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Replies
    1. Douglas is don't a good Lin impersonation tonight. He is showing the coach why they shouldn't ever bench him for Beverly.

      Delete
    2. They also shoudlnt bench Lin for Douglas unless they really want Lin to rest. I would prefer to see Lin and Douglas at the same time.

      Delete
  28. Harden not falling for the penetration bait. very savvy

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lol was like NOOOO DONT YOU DARE HARDEN YOU GET STRIPPED EVERYTIME!!!

      Delete
    2. He got burned in the 2nd quarter and learned his lesson.

      Hopefully, he'll keep playing this unselfish way more and more.

      Delete
  29. Toney D - your new starting PG!?!

    1. ah, bad Toney shows up. check that statement

  30. Fucking Douglas is Hustle-ing.

  31. Harden's minutes are crazy long....

  32. FAvorite son gets those type of plays

    ReplyDelete
  33. GOD DAMN IT PARSONS YOU HAVE NO FKING HANDLES DON'T ISO

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is SO frustrating.

    They keep taking the lead to 8 and let them catch up with stupid plays.

    Parsons ISO...REALLY?!?!? DUDE HAS NO HANDLES!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Caman guys, blue-eyed-hearthrob's done more than enough good to justify a couple of shitty plays.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Omer needs 6 more assists for a triple double. Or, 6 more TOs.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Parsons iso is so much fail lol. Coach's favorite gets this kind of play call even he's bad at it.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Parson ! I knew u would turn the ball over .

    ReplyDelete
  39. JEREMY STILL ON THE BENCH????

    F**K YOU MCHALE. NOTHING CHANGES

    1. Let Parsons be the ballhandler to develop him into a star.

  41. I think Douglas playing well cut into Lin's minutes. And everyone knows McHale will never take out Parsons and Harden.

    1. old problem of his rotation....
      does he need spark again?

      Delete
  42. bad start for 4th... oh no... No Lin in sight...

    ReplyDelete
  43. McHale substitution pattern is the X factor for Denver.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Sigh.

    Nothing to say here.

    This rate we're gunna lose.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Stupid McHale doesn't know what is he doing.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Still have hope towards McHale? He just doesn't respect Lin at all. If TD or Berverly have a little spark, they rather start them than his starting point guard on any quarter.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. McHale must go.

      This was a horrendous insult and a terrible coaching move.

      Delete
  47. what is that?
    he puts back Harden?

    ReplyDelete
  48. toney D wants that starter job!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I give up.

    This team is SCREWED.

    McHale really thinks of Jeremy as trash -- a 3rd stringer he's only forced to play because of his contract. And if he misses a shot or TD does anything good...he's benched.

    ReplyDelete
  50. George Karl is thinking how stupid McHale is, but how great so that the Nuggets can win.

    This is utter crap.

    ReplyDelete
  51. delfino for asik...lol. and promptly gives up offensive rebound

    LOVE that coaching staff

    ReplyDelete
  52. Asik out... Nuggets getting offensive rebounds..

    ReplyDelete
  53. Parsons another TO... what's going on??? Let Lin in!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. lin is back, time to get back on track and win

    ReplyDelete
  55. LOL EFF YOU MCHALE.

    YOU LOST THIS LEAD.

    1. What the HELL will it take for McHale to stop treating Jeremy like garbage???

      I have no idea. He really, really, really has NO RESPECT for Jeremy as a player.

      Look at the scoreboard you big dumb meathead. All this is on you.

      Jeremy will probably be blame for... for... for Gallinari hitting 3s.

      Delete
  56. awww. Denver is pulling away...

    ReplyDelete
  57. Gallo tees up Parsons. And rockets getting unhinged

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lin was out way too long. I just don't get it. :( Harden wants to be hero now. :( TO.

  62. Its too late to put Lin back in.And then blame Lin for the lose.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Lin is in. 'hope it's not too late...

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't blame Douglas. He's playing well. But the minutes he should cut into is Harden's, not Lin's. We all know it will never happen though.

    And McHale's brilliant idea to let his guys with the most turnovers to handle the ball lol.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Exactly. Harden is a great player but needs to sit when he's hurting the team.

  65. 8 points behind only, lets hope for the best

  66. This calamari Gallinari guy is taking over the game...please, somebody, do something....

    ReplyDelete
  67. nuggets lead by 8... Let's go LIN!

    ReplyDelete
  68. McHale must be betting money on Houston lose.

    ReplyDelete
  69. NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

    Nothing. So long as McHale is here. Jeremy will be considered garbage.

    He puts in Lin after the game has shifted...so he can share in the loss.

    God, what a P.O.S.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Jeremy tried to draw a foul. DEN is homecourt

    ReplyDelete
  71. So. how much was Houston up when Lin was taken out in the third. Because by the time he came back in and got an offensive possession they were down 5.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Smooth J by Jeremy to stop the bleeding

    ReplyDelete
  73. Rox coaching pushed the self-destruct button when they took Lin out in the 3rd.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Patterson watches the offensive board

    ReplyDelete
  75. McHale thought bubble:

    "Yeah - I let the asian kid to the work and then bench him to make my favorite sons look good in 4th. Oooops... didnt work - again. Lets put Lin back in... but not as PG."

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. McHale thought bubble:

      "OK - lets leave the guy with the worst TO numbers and the worst D in the game. Make the asian kid risk his body to save the game."

      Delete
  76. I may not know basketball as well as others but simple logic is this. Let others handle the ball = TOs all over the place. Let Lin handle it = limited TOs.

    I think McHale must be schizo. I don't know what coach is going to coach on any given game.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He suffers from OCD:

      -Lin must not look good
      -Gotta treat Lin like a stepson
      -Treat everyone else like sons

      Delete
  77. all time defense is required and good passing game is all they need to get back and win

    ReplyDelete
  78. this game invalidates the credit we just gave to morey. smh

    ReplyDelete
  79. Lawson shoots a 3. and delfino bricks a lin pass

    ReplyDelete
  80. Rockets are panicking and Harden is a TO machine and cant' score with his bail out move.

    ReplyDelete
  81. harden bad body language. thankfully parsons plays D by drawing a foul

    ReplyDelete
  82. OK McHell should've pulled Harden by now.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Lin's the only one still trying... draws the charge.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Lin is really keeping this game in check by himself.

    ReplyDelete
  85. finally delfino scores off a lin rondo assist

    ReplyDelete
  86. Lin needs to call for the abll now

    1. This is 100% Jeremy 0% everyone else.

      Even that layup by Parsons was Jeremy taking defensive attention away from him.

  89. see how Rox regained their composure with Lin running the show?

  91. Rockets back to losing streak style,its clear who is the best player who can control the game ,its Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I don't care about the stats; Lin has a positive effect on the game. If you can't see that you're fucking blind.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Guys, the rest of the cast is just having the law of averages come back to bite them in the ass. I think this is what happens when you live and die by the 3. I think overall, McHale hasn't done anything really outrageous; it just sucks blowing a lead.

    ReplyDelete
  94. let lin rule and hope harden don't play hero ball

    ReplyDelete
  95. somebody stop gallinari plssss...

    ReplyDelete
  96. Lin throwing his body like it's the playoff

    ReplyDelete
  97. no more TO, all defense and make all shots

    ReplyDelete
  98. It's like role reversals. Denver live and die by the 3, and Houston is attacking the paint?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Who the heck is leaving Gallinari open all day?

    ReplyDelete
  100. Look at Lin taking it to the 6'11" man.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Lin looks like he is in Linsanity mode now.

  102. Lin missed a FT.

    He lost the game.

    That's what McHale is gunna say.
