  2. No love from Greg Anthony for Houston. Didn't even mention Lin as a factor to beat the Lakers. At least C. Webb mentioned Lin in one sentence.

    1. NBA.TV pre-game gave JLin no respect for his role in the running style of Rockets. While Harden is proving to be a superstar, he could not trigger the fast break identiy they have creates. Remember G. Anthony is ex-Knick.

      Delete
    2. Great point RioFan! Greg Anthony is a company man for the Knicks.

      CWebb has liked Lin since watching him in the NBA Summer League game vs John Wall.

  3. Nice touch by Jlin--always heartfelt hug for both D'antoni brothers

    ReplyDelete
  4. Jlin dish to corner--Harden side of blackboard...ok, then.

    ReplyDelete
  5. McHale was hot in that timeout

    ReplyDelete
  6. bad TO by Jlin after watching Parsons herky jerky to nowhere

    ReplyDelete
  7. lol TD PnR to Asik who thinks he is magic johnson, sends patterson out of balance leads to wild play and ends up with Harden brick

    ReplyDelete
  8. McHale was quick to pull Morris and Lin. Really, Lin is the problem and that is why you are benching him within 5 minutes of the game?

    1. i don't get it. If lin is an important player to them, what's the point of pulling him out that quickly after a bad mistake. Seriously. Give him some leeway to play through his errors. If he playing bad for a quarter, then okay, pull him out, but it just shows you the confidence they have in lin. I still don't think they have a lot of confidence in him.

    2. Sending the team a message again

      Delete
    3. yeah, pick on the asian kid. easy target. let's see him try that on harden.

  9. Houston always starts slow against the Lakers its almost weird. Well as long as they win.

    1. They're always slow at the beginning against any team...it's weird.

  10. damn jlin benched and not even 5 minutes yet da fuq stupid ass coaches

    ReplyDelete
  11. no box out by HOU--Kobe a guard and d leaguer C clowning asik

    ReplyDelete
  12. Horrible interior D after nash penetration

    ReplyDelete
  13. Harden lets man fly by for another interior D collapse.

    ReplyDelete
  14. TD bad TO x2 but still in the game. *Sampson alert* on

    ReplyDelete
  15. Lame coaches. Lin will be rested and will shine.

    ReplyDelete
  16. now Jodie Meeks takes advantage of HOU tweener front court

    ReplyDelete
  17. can't believe they took jlin out, completely out of syn right now

    ReplyDelete

    1. relax guys, coaches did something sas ot game, lin came back dumping 38 points. I would be surprised if lin isn't off bench 2nd quarter... mchale wants him to be aggressive

      Delete
  18. James Harden is 1 for 6 and still have a free pass to do what he wants. Let a couple of players blow by him.

    ReplyDelete
  19. they need to put Lin back. They look lost in there.

    ReplyDelete
  20. TD airball pass to patterson? haha, let me take off my Sampson goggles

    ReplyDelete
  21. i hope we lose this game badly if jlin gets abused. Friggin wide open air ball by TD...

    ReplyDelete
  22. another three right in face of TD. Whipping boy Lin still on bench.

    At least bearded man takes advantage of stat stuffing by feeding Delfino

    ReplyDelete
  23. Is McHale and Sampson sending Lin a message by telling him to either stop turning the ball over and pass the ball to Harden or be benched?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. :) loaded question.
      C'mon...

      Delete
    2. It's a gun with one bullet. Who is going to be the first to pull the trigger.

      Delete
  24. Lin should be in with TD to start the 2nd quarter and Harden should be on the bench now resting.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Put Lin back in the game immediately unless he is hurt! This is bs! He gets one turnover and gets taken out? Unbelievable!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Delfino fell asleep watching Jlin D up a C

    ReplyDelete
  27. Everybody ISO by HOU leads to wild shot by Favorite Son. No set plays

    ReplyDelete
  28. Finally Jeremy--you're the highest paid player on the court for the Rockets.

    Stop feeding Delfino with entry passes!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. but Lin takes a hit on the drive- hopefully it's nothing

      Delete
    2. Needs to learn from bearded man--Delfino feed him behind the three point arc--not when he wants to post up.

      Intelligent stat stuffing!

      Delete
  29. Jeremy works nicely with Parsons. Those two pass the ball to each other well.

    ReplyDelete
  30. If Jeremy scores more than TD or Harden then McHale is going to insert Harden back into the game and sit Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  31. If Lin gets to playoffs healthy. Watch out. He will dominate.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Jeremy will be fine, he needs to stay aggressive

    ReplyDelete
  33. World Peace just punishing whoever is defending him

    ReplyDelete
  34. Jlin TO trying to thread needle to Delfino...down in the paint

    Too much trust by Jlin

    See Delfino--he is behind the arc expert, not post/paint!

    ReplyDelete
  35. YES!! intelligent stat stuffing!

    Jlin with assist

    ReplyDelete
  36. There you go, exploit the sausage man by feeding him behind the arc. You know he wanted to put the ball through the hole like making sausage.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That was a nice ast... Jeremy had 3 people staring at him, made the easy play to tie the game

      Delete
    2. Harden was raising his hands on the other side of the arc. Lin went straight to sausage man instead of the beard.

      Delete
  37. Delfino is hot, D'Antoni is probably salivating. He wants that kind of player.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm really liking Delfino behind the arc these days.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Jeremy seems really passive on the offense end. We know he can play a lot better than he has.

    ReplyDelete
  40. lol, world peace abusing delfino not in the the paint but behind the arc too

    ReplyDelete
  41. another spin o rama takes on two hou players. Kobe laughing at interior D of HOU

    ReplyDelete
  42. Replies
    1. Right.. poor jlin.. y do those coaches treat him as such!

      Delete
    2. me too but then again seems everyone wants a piece of that ball. Maybe Kobe bryant is rubbing off to them especially on harden.

      Delete
    3. I agreed! PG or SG or everyone for himself.

      Delete
  43. Why is Lin on bench again? Makes absolutely no sense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because he drove and missed the shot instead of passing to Harden who will miss the shot. There is a difference.

      Delete
    2. TD having no luck stopping Nash either, Lin will be back soon

      Delete
    3. i don't care what the reasoning is, who benches their supposed top players like this? So ticky tacky. If he was playing horrible horrible, then maybe, but seriously? After little mistakes like that? Shows no confidence....on a string like a backup 3rd stringer....

      Delete
    4. These type of games where he pulls him out ruins his confidence. Totally lame. This is motivating me to get rich so I can buy a team and get a great coach for LIn.

      Delete
    5. He deserve to be bench. He defers too much and doesn't seem to be interested in attacking and shoot.

      Delete
    6. McHale making mistake subbing JL with TD.... TD getting lit up defensively in half court and in transition.

      Delete
    7. Lin makes one mistake, and he's benched. Douglas gets burned by Nash on defense ... and he's still very much in the game.

      Delete
    8. The truth is Lin is playing like crap. We can blame the coaches for taking him out but when he is playing like a pussy he deserves to be bench. Td is not that good but he plays with the attitude that he doesn't care.

      Delete
    9. but that's what lin did....to get subbed out...he tried to attack and threw up a hard shot and missed..got yanked...??

      Delete
    10. Lin is more effective when he is playing PG on top of the key with the pick and roll. But his role now is to pass the ball to Harden top of the key & run into the corner. Mostly just watch his teammates jacking up shot after shot.

      Delete
    11. @fc701:

      Why is Lin playing like crap? Please elaborate!

      Delete
  44. Nice D by the Rockets to let Nash go in for the easy layup.

    ReplyDelete
  45. TD having more mins than our boy jlin.. lol..

    ReplyDelete
  46. McHale thinks Lin is playing favoritism by giving the Lakers the ball three times and not being aggressive. McHale is a scorn lover.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He sees Lin giving hugs to D'Antoni and felt he didn't get a hug from Lin after he did Lin a favor and give him 40+ min in the past couple of games. I will fix that Asian whipping boy quick.

      Delete
  47. wow.. what a lousy 2 quarters for Rockets.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow, just joined in, garbage stats, is Lin passive again?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He was only allowed to play 13 minutes - so - yes!

      Delete
  49. Jeremy Lin, Houston Rockets starting point guard role is to bring the ball half court and to pass it out right away.
    Toney Douglas, Houston Rockets backup point guard role = Primary point guard who handles the rock freely without Harden constantly asking for the ball.

    1. You are right! William. JLin role right now is very confusing to me. PG one minute & who knows the next.

      Delete
    2. I realized his questionable role happens when they vs the big teams like Thunders, Spurs and Lakers.

      Delete
  50. At least Nash's 10,000 assist didn't come against Lin

    ReplyDelete
  51. Nash slaughtering Rockets D for an easy lay-up and assist

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. btw..i love nash....true definition of point guard. okay his d isin't great, but everything else is golden...shot, passing, vision, unselfishness, court awarness, team player, etc...hope that lin can model his game after nash, though his shot prob wont ever touch nashs..but lin's d is already better and can improve

      Delete
    2. I love Nash too, and Lakers is my team. for this game though, I'm leaning towards Jeremy and the Rockets more than the Lakers. Nash is schooling my boy how to effectively run PnRs.

      Delete
  52. well the ISo Harden is working but really i dont want to see a shoot out between Kobe and Harden. Its going to be boring. I hope those two gets tired or something and then maybe we could see more passing and ball movement.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Damn, Nash is schooling JLin big time. Can't really blame JLin though. Look at all those pick and rolls Nash is running. JLin isn't getting any. Nash has pretty effective fade away. C'Mon J Money, pick it in the 2nd half.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not schooling JLin as in a 1-on-1, but his composure and basically doing all the right things at the right time.

      Delete
    2. His role is defined. His team lets him play Nash-ball. Take Nash out - put Lin in -> same beauty!

      Delete
  54. Lin has confidence issue, if his first shots doesn't go in, he usually stop shooting and playing timidly.

    1. He was 7-13 and 3-5 against cleveland and he wasnt hot from the beginning.

      Delete
  55. I'm fascinated with Delfino.

    Delfino has a +/- of 186 so far this year and he's only played in 26 games (including this one). That's ridiculous, and by far the highest on the team. Parsons (whom he subs in for) has a +/- of -14 in 34 games.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Iike that i will ..take off my uniform and say good night to all...
    Everyone knows the feeling of being benced. Specially when you know that you can contribute in the game
    ..

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lin looks hesitant to me because Lakers are getting back in transition and loading up on him in half court, giving him different looks early in the lane, 2 or 3 defenders staring at him. I look for McHale to get Lin looks later in shot clock to create in the second half.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lin think himself as a scrub, that's why he even deferred to TD.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Lin with his servant mentality. SIGH

    ReplyDelete
  60. Must be full moon tonight, the TROL-LIN IS STRONG TONGHT...

    ReplyDelete
  61. I think JLin is hesitant because he got confused reading the chaotic game on defense and offense instead of playing with instinct. As a result, I think his decision making wasn't sharp. Threading the need to Delfino that resulted in a TO. Taking it to the hoop when there's was too much traffic and forced a bad shot. A long pass to TD when there were two taller defender around him. I think JLin just to clear his mind right now and play calm in the 2nd half.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah, I think once he gets a chance to look at tape during halftime, he'll make adjustments.

      Delete
  62. Nice picks for Nash, Lin is having problems getting around to defend Nash.

  63. Wow Morris playing D...wtf is going on?!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Lol that was a lame TO...Lin omg man Metta was ALL OVER MORRIS FIND SOMEONE ELSE!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Damn. McHale going off on Lin. This is not good.

    1. Lin need to WTF up and stop playing like he is scared to be benched.

      Delete
    2. Who's fault for that TO? Morris or Lin?

      Delete
    3. He needs to, Lin had a brain fart, you simply can't play like you don't care, he could have attacked he was WIDE OPEN instead he deferred and passed it to a WELL GUARDED MORRIS.

      Nash 6/8 0 TO, Lin 2/4 5 TO, yes I know Lakers set much better picks but its obvious who's winning this fight. I hate to say this but he's playing like a groupie in front of his idol.

      Delete
    4. Surprised McHale didn't bench Lin.

      Delete
    5. I know right?

      Tonight I don't blame Harden going ISO.

      Lin is just meh...At least He's being allowed to play through.

      Delete
    6. And got faked easily...Lol he is playing like he smoked pot for the first time.

      Delete
  66. lol thats the dumbest pass i've seen

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lin trying to force it to Morris, TO.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ugh. I can't think of any positive things to say. Somebody help me out.

    ReplyDelete
  69. He's turning it over like crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  70. The paint is wide open.

    Put Greg Smith in now.

    Lakers has no big man, yet they are tied in rebounds and Lakers are up in offensive rebounds.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I think Lin is throwing this game to return the favor for his former coach D'Antoni.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Simply put, Lin's decision-making has been terrible. I can't blame the coaches for sitting him.

    ReplyDelete
  73. jeremy needs to pull his act together or this is going to be an ugly night. And i like Nash but the Hair.

    ReplyDelete
  74. As the Houston announcers said it. Nashty is schooling Lin. He has a whole school of people he schooled.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Attack and draw fouls...Reset yer game Lin its horrible atm!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Damn. McHale going off on Lin. This is not good.
