Lets get to it
GO JLIN TEACH CP3 AND BLEDSOE A FEW LESSONS!!!GO LINSANE!!!
Anyone watch the Clippers broadcast and the pre-game show? lolThe 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.
Lets go rockets lets go Linsanity
I like how both games Harden's been out this season, it's against top 4 teams.I'm being sarcastic.
3 for lin :)
3 for Parsons!
2 dumb TOs already. C'mon guys.
Lin was smiling before the game. A really good sign!!!
Asik with a nice move.
Seriously, where's the defense ??? Clippers have hit their first 7 shots in a row.
Wow messy plays.Down by 5 already.Make that 8.Non-existent perimeter defense is killing them.
It took Coach McFail 10 minutes to realize the other team isn't missing any shots.
Now 10 shots in a row for the Clippers. Stop letting them shoot wide open 3's.
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.
Delfino plays like a rookie. I'd rather have James Anderson at shooting guard.
I was thinking the same thing. Better ball movement.
hope they don't' get blown out by 30.
that might just happen.this 3 PG system is just not working, they need to let Lin take over.
Lin had a nice drive on CP3 but _JUST_ missed the layup. That ball hung on the rim and almost fell in.
word of advice, watch the game on mute, it'll feel less painful.
Only one big guy on the bench, Cole. This doesn't look good.
They better let Lin get his swag. Im ready! Lets go!
Is he trying to hit a home run?
Dam, Linsanity anybody?
Lol Staples center cheering for Lin.Clippers killin' them outside and stopping them in return. This is getting sad.
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.
announcer: he is not badsmhhow about good? above average? why "not bad"?
Rox not doing bad. Still trying to figure out who to guard.
staying in to watch Jlin play bullyball.
Give Lin the ball dammit.
open 3, bricked by parsons with assist by jlin
paul getting picked, draws contact from jlin with and 1
Jeremy killing it already. But his teammates need to step it up. They aren't making shots or playing smart defense.
Try to tell that to Chandler "the superstar wannabe" Parsons.
asik getting post play--stalls and plays it back out to jlin, jlin aggressive as heck! nice, gets to charity stripe
Harden's soul possessing Lin's body.
Lin with a Har_en-ese showing the ball drive into the paint.
paul, picks jlin again, griffing beats delfino to hustle.jlin slow reactionbad pass by jlin, telegraphed
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.
They are playing like they're already beat.
Nobody on the Rockets has Lin's back. They only follow Harden... who isn't playing tonight.
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.
and jlin gets taken out
Lin goes out with his 2nd foul. He needs to watch it.
Cheap call on Lin and now he has 2 fouls. NBA refs fucking shit up again.
They want to beat Rockets 3pt record tonight.Its obvious.
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.
lin had two fouls.
parsons trying to pass to cutting beverly. even if he completes that, is that even a high percentage play? weird decision making.
parsons shouldn't be passing to anyone. bev's the pg here.
Lin 1 fouls
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
look how big the lead got when lin left...oops, my bad, he only has 1 foul too...???? WTF.
He has 2.
Long game guys, Long game... Let's see what happens.
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
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.
Lin had too many points, so the refs had to step in and get him in foul trouble.
23 - 36Wow.Blowout game.LOL Anderson got baited by CP3.
He got hypnotized by the crossovers.
why not bev and lin with delfino out? let bev defend paul?mchale lack of plasticity in trying out new ideas.
This is a good idea, if McHale will allow it.
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.
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.
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.
Unbelievable. No respect at all for lin's game Mchale
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.
Sorry Lin 2 fouls
No game plan by Rockets' coaching.
Game plan is give the ball to Harden but he's out tonight.
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.
Lol 2:40 left 1st quarter and its 23-39this is embarassing
Okay, bev making smoe plays. Expect Jeremy to sit for a while. Any excuse not to put in Lin, Mchale will take.
Delfino doesn't even raise his hands to contest.LOL
16/19, ok if hou keeps this within 10, clips have to endure some regression to the mean.
This team is in total disarray
LOL0 perimeter DThese guys are terrible.They deserve to get beat this bad.
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...
46 points?? wow do we play any defense?
Only Jeremy. And Asik in the half-court.
So ughm yah.. Lin gets to 9 points quickly then dissapear... at least thus far.
Without Jeremy, the Rockets are lost.At least CP3 just got his 2nd foul.
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.
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.
Does McHale teach any defense? Holy cow.
Wow - must be fun to be clippers fan right now.
At this point I think McHale should let Lin sit. Let McHale watch HIS favorites play...
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.
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.
Jeremy needs to learn that the refs really hate him on the road. They will whistle him for anything.
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.
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
Morey Ball. They shoot lots of 3's, they miss lots of 3's, they don't get back on defense. Game over.
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.
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.
forwards CAN'T GUARD!
lin still seating ... told you
WOW WDF!?!?! JLIN starting on the bench of the 2nd quarter? Who cares about the 2 fouls, put him in the game.
Lin sits 2nd quarter.McHale gave up already.
stream froze, is lin starting second qtr?
but reports will say how harden did not play and thats the reason rox lost.
Mchale didn't give up. he think the rox have a better chance with LIn on the bench.
why is he on the bench =/
Cuz Lin's scoring is too high.
Bad defense is forgivable when the 3s are falling.
Look at Lin.. How can he take this shit.
Now we know what Warriors felt
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.
What's also killing rox is they have no plan on D.
where is the fave son? is anderson better than dmo at this point?I'm confused
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!
Beverley is going to get more minutes. Gauaranteed.
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.
Rox gave up on this already.
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.
I'm at the game. Finally got in and then jeremys benched.
Die by the three. There is no offense. Throw it up and pray it goes in.
You can play LIn now McHale.
GET JEREMY BACK IN THE GAMEMy God. You unbelievable moron of a coach.
good clippers getting overconfident. come on now!
Guys tell me is beverley playing that much better than LIn to deserve more minutes?
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.
Bev made a 3.Lin is coming 2nd half.
Lin must be the most well rested starting PG in the LEAGUE. What did Jeremy do to deserve this benching?
Assuming McHell doesn't want Lin to get over 20pts, we won't see Lin until 2nd quarter almost ends.
Bev almost going to get more mins than Lin.
Beverly made end up with more minutes played in this game than JLin. That would be ironic.
its one thing if jeremy is playing bad. But he did well the first quarter. WTF?
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
WtF when is Lin coming in ???
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.
Agree, there is nothing new here today knowing Harden is hurt.
Lin started out too hot for McHale. Got to sit him down, get him cold, have him back to being a singles hitter.
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
Jeremy just play like this is your last game. You do not get many chances in this offense.
finally, someone recognizes playing the two PGS
See, Bev is playing the 1 and Lin the 2.
Jeremy lin is in now. I can smell double double today!
Lin just scoots into the corner.I'm done with McHale.
very nice ball movement as jlin parked in the corner
Nice job Morris!
WOW Beverly running point? Parson on the top wing spot while Jlin stays on the corner? I really don't get this offensive sets...
This is seriously a coaching staff & McHale decision. They don't believe in Jlin.
so bev is the pg even with Lin??? wow! :-(
This is effin sad. They still don't let Lin play the point.
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... ?
jlin taking on bledsoe, picked him again. good defense to force it to their weakest clip on the court, hollins
The Clippers announcer keeps calling Marcus Morris ... Markief Morris. That is the only thing that is funny tonight :(
Why bev run the pg position?
jlin open 3, bricks it, great movement
Jeremy Lin offense camp on the corner even without Harden...
jlin decoy on previous offensive set. delfino bricks a screen
Time for Jeremy to say eff it and start playing his game.
JSUT DARE MDCHALE TO SIT YOU.
jlin watches parsons get stuffed
Lin is not even attacking.What is gong on?
Home team refs. Two blown calls.
this clipper crowd oohs and aahs at crossover--very easily impressed. i have yet see something productive from those fancy dribbling.
He faked out Bev which isn't really much of an accomplishment.
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.
Jeremy needs Harden's attitude. Just attack..
lol, another ooh and ahh---result is an airball
Good defense by JLIN on Crawford...
They are just showboating at Rox expense.They are trying not to blow them out too bad (Clippers).
jlin full court pressed, gets hammered..no foul but it sets up an offensive board after jlin clears the clipper defender
WOW NO FOUL CALL ON THAT!?!?! JLIN ALMOST GOT HIS HEAD CUT OFF...HIS BACK IS HURT.
That was totally fcked up.
jlin run out against clippers. regression to the mean in full effect
Jeremy needs to just attack .. that is how he breaks down defense;.
jlin probes paint, gets stalled, morris bricked for 3
Wow kicked by Hollins lol absolutely no respect.
Kicked him right in front of the refs. Azz.
RYAN HOLLINS KICKS & PUSHES JLIN. WOW...THIS IS CRIMINAL...THE REFS NEED TO PROTECT JLIN...HIS BACK IS BOTHER HIM YOU CAN TELL...
Yeah you can't stand that the asian kid is ballin.. right.. just kick him. That is a fragrant if I evere saw one.
hollins kicks lin on purpose after lin strips himWTF?where is teh enforcer for rockets? nobody comes to give hollins a shove. parsons just looks down.they need a ron artest to protect lin
Morris is the enforcer but he only backs Bev.
I will completely lose respect for Rox if they dont return the favor...
WTF!!!Who else gets hammered and kicked by two guys like Lin...
I want to effen kill that mofo Hollins.
Omg, seriously no foul on that play? And they called a foul on simple touch foul? Fk these refs. This is maddening.
Dumbass Ryan Hollins doing a cheap shot right in FRONT of the ref.
Are they trying to kill LIN!? No call in the layup!? Are you seriously going to tell me there was no foul there!? WOW!!! These is a bad one.
Lol clippers playing bench for like 8 mins into quarter. They can leave them out there and they'll beat Rockets.
Is this a soccer game or basketball...???
Lin's D is too good!!
Wow he better have an instant suspension
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).
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
where is the coaching staff talking to the refs about the kick?come on, at least protect the highest paid rocket on the court
Hopefully it will wake Lin up - things like this seems to take him to another level.
The effen refs today are so effen dumb. Contact like crazy but no call. So effen pissed.
I am watching a soccer match....where people kick ;)
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...
