  2. Anyone watch the Clippers broadcast and the pre-game show? lol

    The studio commentators were questioning Lin's contract and said $8 million = All-star contract. Of course one of them used his current stats to ask that question. But then they asked Kiki Vandeweghe, who was on the court, about Lin being overpaid. He schooled them saying that Lin adds a lot of things to the Rockets, including defense and being a playmaker. He also reminded them of Lin's market value.

  3. Lets go rockets lets go Linsanity

  4. I like how both games Harden's been out this season, it's against top 4 teams.

    I'm being sarcastic.

    ReplyDelete
  5. 2 dumb TOs already. C'mon guys.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Lin was smiling before the game. A really good sign!!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Seriously, where's the defense ??? Clippers have hit their first 7 shots in a row.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow messy plays.

    Down by 5 already.

    Make that 8.

    Non-existent perimeter defense is killing them.

    1. It took Coach McFail 10 minutes to realize the other team isn't missing any shots.

      Delete
  9. Now 10 shots in a row for the Clippers. Stop letting them shoot wide open 3's.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I told you it wouldn't get better without Harden. Instead of Harden trying to be PG, right now it just become Parsons and Delfino trying to be PG. 2 turnovers between them already. And even without Harden, they still wouldn't trust Lin with the ball.

    And yeah Delfino is as bad of a defender as Harden.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Delfino plays like a rookie. I'd rather have James Anderson at shooting guard.

      Delete
    2. I was thinking the same thing. Better ball movement.

      Delete
  11. hope they don't' get blown out by 30.

    ReplyDelete

    1. that might just happen.

      this 3 PG system is just not working, they need to let Lin take over.

      Delete
  12. Lin had a nice drive on CP3 but _JUST_ missed the layup. That ball hung on the rim and almost fell in.

    ReplyDelete
  13. word of advice, watch the game on mute, it'll feel less painful.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Only one big guy on the bench, Cole. This doesn't look good.

    ReplyDelete
  15. They better let Lin get his swag. Im ready! Lets go!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Is he trying to hit a home run?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lol Staples center cheering for Lin.

    Clippers killin' them outside and stopping them in return. This is getting sad.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Rockets bigs need to keep their head on a swivel and keep DeAndre out of the paint. Come on!

    Lin missed two layups but both were solid drives. He got fouled on one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  19. announcer: he is not bad

    smh

    how about good? above average? why "not bad"?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Rox not doing bad. Still trying to figure out who to guard.

    ReplyDelete
  21. staying in to watch Jlin play bullyball.

    ReplyDelete
  22. open 3, bricked by parsons with assist by jlin

    ReplyDelete
  23. paul getting picked, draws contact from jlin with and 1

    ReplyDelete
  24. Jeremy killing it already. But his teammates need to step it up.

    They aren't making shots or playing smart defense.

    1. Try to tell that to Chandler "the superstar wannabe" Parsons.

  25. asik getting post play--stalls and plays it back out to jlin, jlin aggressive as heck! nice, gets to charity stripe

    ReplyDelete
  26. Harden's soul possessing Lin's body.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lin with a Har_en-ese showing the ball drive into the paint.

    ReplyDelete
  28. paul, picks jlin again, griffing beats delfino to hustle.

    jlin slow reaction

    bad pass by jlin, telegraphed

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sad I don't know why no one went for that loose ball. They just don't want this win.

    And CP with a steal off lin.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They are playing like they're already beat.

      Delete
    2. Nobody on the Rockets has Lin's back. They only follow Harden... who isn't playing tonight.

      Delete
    3. It seems like the Rockets are playing scared without Har_en.

      Lin can dominate but the only problem is he has the best PG in the league as his matchup.

      Delete
  30. Lin goes out with his 2nd foul. He needs to watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Cheap call on Lin and now he has 2 fouls. NBA refs fucking shit up again.

    ReplyDelete
  32. They want to beat Rockets 3pt record tonight.

    Its obvious.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 9 points already. At this rate, he's going to beat his career. Maybe Harden can miss the rest of the season. Ha ha ha! Is that wrong? About as wrong as McHale taking Lin out for no reason.

    ReplyDelete
  34. parsons trying to pass to cutting beverly. even if he completes that, is that even a high percentage play? weird decision making.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. parsons shouldn't be passing to anyone. bev's the pg here.

      Delete
  35. do you guys see this b.s? this is one game Jeremy should play more minutes. He is still sticking with his usual routine. Asshole

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. look how big the lead got when lin left...

      oops, my bad, he only has 1 foul too...???? WTF.

      Delete
    2. Long game guys, Long game... Let's see what happens.

      Delete
    3. no he is sticking with his usual routine minutes whether Harden is there or not. Lin is playing well .. but of course he takes him out. How can we as fans voice our displeasure? McHale is such an asshole

      Delete
    4. I wouldn't be surprised if there is long stretch of rest between 3rd and 4th ... they need to keep lin in there to keep the game close.

      Delete
  36. Lin had too many points, so the refs had to step in and get him in foul trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  37. 23 - 36

    Wow.

    Blowout game.

    LOL Anderson got baited by CP3.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He got hypnotized by the crossovers.

      Delete
  38. why not bev and lin with delfino out? let bev defend paul?

    mchale lack of plasticity in trying out new ideas.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This is a good idea, if McHale will allow it.

      Delete
  39. So... what happens when the threes are not falling? You DIE! Pretty much. I hope Lin turns it around. He is playing good, but if the shoots are no falling they are not falling. There were like 3 assists from Lin on missed threes.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin can't win by himself.

      Even if he gets 50pts, the rate Clippers are scoring they'll still blow out Rox by 30+ pts.

      Delete
    2. I know, that's why I'm saying that no one is making the threes. Clippers can just double team Lin the whole game and win.

      Delete
  40. Unbelievable. No respect at all for lin's game Mchale

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Rockets might break the record for most points giving up in 1st quarter, especially now with Lin out.

    And that superstar Parsons is being schooled on both ends of the floor.

    ReplyDelete
  42. No game plan by Rockets' coaching.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Game plan is give the ball to Harden but he's out tonight.

      Delete
  43. Lin has two fouls in the first quarter and taking him out was the right move. I love bashing McHale too but get some basketball knowledge first.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lol 2:40 left 1st quarter and its 23-39

    this is embarassing

    ReplyDelete
  45. Okay, bev making smoe plays. Expect Jeremy to sit for a while. Any excuse not to put in Lin, Mchale will take.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Delfino doesn't even raise his hands to contest.

    LOL

    ReplyDelete
  47. 16/19, ok if hou keeps this within 10, clips have to endure some regression to the mean.

    ReplyDelete
  48. LOL

    0 perimeter D

    These guys are terrible.

    They deserve to get beat this bad.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Lord, just let Jeremy play his game and see what happens. Don't try to stifle him! Even if they lose, it will be an exciting game. Sigh...

    ReplyDelete
  50. 46 points?? wow do we play any defense?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Only Jeremy. And Asik in the half-court.

      Delete
  51. So ughm yah.. Lin gets to 9 points quickly then dissapear... at least thus far.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Without Jeremy, the Rockets are lost.

    At least CP3 just got his 2nd foul.

    ReplyDelete
  53. WOW... I guess this had to happen at least once this season. Rockets have blown everyone out. Let's see what we do... This is only the first quarter. The team... wait is it even a team right now? IDK. But, those shots are not falling and everything the Clippers shoot is falling.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Let's see what Lin and the Rockets are made of. Lin is a competitor so I'm expecting him to fall (if he falls) fighting with everything he has.

      Delete
  54. Does McHale teach any defense? Holy cow.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow - must be fun to be clippers fan right now.

    ReplyDelete
  56. At this point I think McHale should let Lin sit. Let McHale watch HIS favorites play...

    ReplyDelete
  57. Good first quarter for Lin except for two fouls (didn;t realize he had two so chill da fuck out Redking).

    Don't like this democratic ball with harden out. Too many TO's by Delfino and Parsons.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Jeremy picked up two quick fouls because none of his teammates are playing defense.

    He needs to say "Eff it" and stay in the game. The only chance they have to make this close is for Jeremy to go off (like he is) and the Clips to go ice cold on offense thanks to cockiness or fouls.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Jeremy needs to learn that the refs really hate him on the road. They will whistle him for anything.

      Delete
  59. It's already a blowout in the 1st Quarter, 46 points by the Clippers. That's what happens when they don't close out on 3's.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I hope this game shows morey and rockets organization that Mchale CANNOT COACH. You think getting Dwight off season will change things?

    Defense wins championships. This gimmicky offense doesn't work

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Morey Ball. They shoot lots of 3's, they miss lots of 3's, they don't get back on defense. Game over.

      Delete
  61. i'm trying to not blame individual//mchale, maybe his coaching staff needs to get off the groupthink with the subs in this game.

    i'm thinking his coaching staff needs to point out or speak up with the fact lin can be hidden on defense if butler is playing. have someone waste fouls on their opposing PGs.

    ReplyDelete
  62. They need to give Jlin the full GREEN LIGHT! Stop with this BS set play for Parsons who's stone cold right now.

    Very awful ROCKET TEAM DEFENSE, except for Jlin who's doing all he can on defense.

    ReplyDelete
  63. WOW WDF!?!?! JLIN starting on the bench of the 2nd quarter? Who cares about the 2 fouls, put him in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Lin sits 2nd quarter.

    McHale gave up already.

    ReplyDelete
  65. stream froze, is lin starting second qtr?

    ReplyDelete
  66. but reports will say how harden did not play and thats the reason rox lost.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Mchale didn't give up. he think the rox have a better chance with LIn on the bench.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Bad defense is forgivable when the 3s are falling.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Look at Lin.. How can he take this shit.

    ReplyDelete
  70. This 3 BALL Offense of the Rockets is what's going to kill them. When your team is cold shooting 3's you need something else to get guys going.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What's also killing rox is they have no plan on D.

  71. where is the fave son? is anderson better than dmo at this point?

    I'm confused

    ReplyDelete
  72. Delfino... if you arent going to even raise your arm to defend. GET OUT OF THE GAME! McHale! Stand up for your word and BENCH EVERYONE that doesn't defend. Even if it means to playing 48 minutes with just 5 players. I WOULD IF I WERE THE COACH!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Beverley is going to get more minutes. Gauaranteed.

    ReplyDelete
  74. This game may be over by the fourth quarter. This conveniently provides McHale with an excuse to take out Lin and put in the backups. Can't have Lin playing more than 30 minutes after all, even if Harden is out.

    ReplyDelete
  75. They LOVE Beverly because they think he can shoot better 3's than Lin. But he doesn't offer anything else to help the Rockets win the ball game.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm at the game. Finally got in and then jeremys benched.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Die by the three. There is no offense. Throw it up and pray it goes in.

    ReplyDelete
  78. GET JEREMY BACK IN THE GAME

    My God. You unbelievable moron of a coach.

    ReplyDelete
  79. good clippers getting overconfident. come on now!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Guys tell me is beverley playing that much better than LIn to deserve more minutes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin picked up 2 fouls in the 1st quarter. If he gets his 3rd foul in the 2nd quarter ... he will be on the way to fouling out of the game.

      Refs don't treat Lin like a superstar. They will call fouls for any contact he makes. They treat him like a scrub.

      Delete
  81. Bev made a 3.

    Lin is coming 2nd half.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Lin must be the most well rested starting PG in the LEAGUE. What did Jeremy do to deserve this benching?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Assuming McHell doesn't want Lin to get over 20pts, we won't see Lin until 2nd quarter almost ends.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Bev almost going to get more mins than Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Beverly made end up with more minutes played in this game than JLin. That would be ironic.

    ReplyDelete
  86. its one thing if jeremy is playing bad. But he did well the first quarter. WTF?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it's the fouls. staff doesn't want him to pick up his 3rd. they need to protect him by either letting the referees have it or switch him off defending paul

      Delete
  87. If they wanted to keep this game close they would have game planned for Lin to take over the game. Obviously, they didn't game plan for anything. Beverly is a rookie and should not get heavy minutes right now. It's okay to take Jlin out with 2 fouls the 1st Quarter, but it's then 2nd Quarter. It's time to put him back in, he SHOULD have STARTED the 2nd quarter.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agree, there is nothing new here today knowing Harden is hurt.

  88. Lin started out too hot for McHale. Got to sit him down, get him cold, have him back to being a singles hitter.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah I hate McHale 's minutes. No need to sit lin in the middle of 1st. Let him finish the 1st quarter espeically if he is playing well

  89. Jeremy just play like this is your last game. You do not get many chances in this offense.

    ReplyDelete
  90. finally, someone recognizes playing the two PGS

  91. See, Bev is playing the 1 and Lin the 2.

  92. Jeremy lin is in now. I can smell double double today!

  93. Lin just scoots into the corner.

    I'm done with McHale.

  94. very nice ball movement as jlin parked in the corner

    1. This is seriously a coaching staff & McHale decision. They don't believe in Jlin.

  96. so bev is the pg even with Lin??? wow! :-(

    ReplyDelete
  97. This is effin sad. They still don't let Lin play the point.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I can't decide whether I want the Rockets to get blown out to expose McHale's Har_en-less lack of coaching or have this game close so Lin gets PT... ?

    ReplyDelete
  99. jlin taking on bledsoe, picked him again. good defense to force it to their weakest clip on the court, hollins

  100. The Clippers announcer keeps calling Marcus Morris ... Markief Morris. That is the only thing that is funny tonight :(

    1. He faked out Bev which isn't really much of an accomplishment.

      Delete
  109. If the coaches tell JLIN, okay Jlin just make the offensive play and take over the scoring load. He will do it just like the 1st quarter. 2nd quarter it looks like they want him to get more ball movement by him camping in the corner.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Jeremy needs Harden's attitude. Just attack..

    ReplyDelete
  111. lol, another ooh and ahh---result is an airball

    ReplyDelete
  112. Good defense by JLIN on Crawford...

    ReplyDelete
  113. They are just showboating at Rox expense.

    They are trying not to blow them out too bad (Clippers).

    ReplyDelete
  114. jlin full court pressed, gets hammered..no foul but it sets up an offensive board after jlin clears the clipper defender

    ReplyDelete
  115. WOW NO FOUL CALL ON THAT!?!?! JLIN ALMOST GOT HIS HEAD CUT OFF...HIS BACK IS HURT.

    ReplyDelete
  116. jlin run out against clippers. regression to the mean in full effect

    ReplyDelete
  130. Is this a soccer game or basketball...???

    ReplyDelete
  131. Wow he better have an instant suspension

    ReplyDelete
  132. Clippers are HAMMERING Jeremy.

    Trying to physically injure him to get him out of the game.

    Glad the refs correctly called a TECH this time. Jeremy was fouled on an earlier drive as well (though it led to a putback dunk).

    ReplyDelete
  133. See? Nobody will protect Lin but Lin himself. He is alone out there surrounded by fake friends and teammates.

    If the same thing happened to the Clippers its gonna be a messy big fight out there

    ReplyDelete
  134. where is the coaching staff talking to the refs about the kick?

    come on, at least protect the highest paid rocket on the court

    ReplyDelete
  135. Hopefully it will wake Lin up - things like this seems to take him to another level.

    ReplyDelete
  136. The effen refs today are so effen dumb. Contact like crazy but no call. So effen pissed.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I am watching a soccer match....where people kick ;)

    ReplyDelete
  138. JLIN gets fouled by Odom first and foremost..and Hollins see's Jlin falling he decides to kick him and push him to the ground. That should be a FLAGRANT Foul...
