  5. my jaw just dropped to the ground after the GSW he failed to praise jeremy lin for his offensive contribution. and continued to praise harden . LOL. that was one game in which lin lioned and played to the max in the 'limited' way which machale uses him.
    And he gets zero love. This is just tooo cruel. Honestly I think now the coach just doesn't like lin in the team.

  14. Great game in Boston. Denver loses so Rockets can make up some ground. I wish Houston fans could show up at Toyota Center like the Celtics fans do at the Garden. Tonight the fans were a big part of the triple overtime win for the Celtics

    4. Seriously? This early??Can they lose in 3rd Q at least? My positivity will remain as of this time, rockets will win.

      Delete
    5. Its like they've gone back to how they played during the 7 game losing streak.

      Ball movement is poor.

      No one is cutting. No offensive flow.

      Trading shots, and Kings are shooting better.

      Delete
  21. I can't figure out why sometimes Lin is allowed to be the PG to start 1Q but sometimes he doesn't or isn't allowed to.

    There is no offensive flow whatsoever in the 1Q. When shots are not falling, it's quite ugly to watch.

    1. This is how their offense normally works though.

    Got shot over 2x already, way too far to contest and he doesn't move just stands there.

  35. Pathetically weak defense by Marcus Morris against Thomas Robinson.

    Against no other team would this average rookie jump around and dominate Houston's weak big men.

  36. Looks like Houston is struggling because Parsons is not shooting well tonight. 1 for 6. Also Harden is struggling as well with 3 for 7 for 9 points.

  39. Lin took it coast to coast and finished it with a dunk. On the other side, Harden tries to do too much and ended up missing the shot. He didn't pass to Lin who was the trailer. Lin blocked the shot and took it all the way on the previous play.

    ReplyDelete
  40. That's going to highlights!!! WOW NEVER SEEN LIN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT!

  50. I think Delfino is tentative about passing the ball to Lin. He instead pass it to Harden to initiate the offense. I seen him do this on several occasions. I am beginning to suspect Delfino rather pass it to the #1 guy rather than the #2 guy.

    Replies
    1. I'm seeing that too. Probably because he's on a 1 year contract, rather give it to the max guy to get some higher chance of stat stuffing

    1. Come on guys, he is 6' 2. He should be able to dunk that ball. It's a good dunk, but let not make him out to be Nate Robinson now.

    2. @john ly, I don't know what was going on in your head to ended up with that interpretation. We know that Lin is 6'3" not 6'2" and we also know Lin can dunk be it one handed or two handed dunk. But we know that he doesn't dunk very often in the NBA, you could say its a rare occasion, so I'll take that dunk in Lin's all time career highlights

    3. No comment...I rather hold my tongue on this one.

    1. The Rockets are missing Greg Smith.

  69. Stupidly BAD defense by Harden, not even trying as he gets burned.

  70. Lin gets last second shot but bricks on drive

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A lot of contact on that drive.

      Delete
    2. IMHO, it was a foul on Lin. Lin is playing good D and shooting well, although I think Lin will have a tough time driving against Isaiah Thomas guy because Thomas is pretty good at staying in front of his guy. Harden does not seem to be playing very smartly this game.

      Delete
    3. It might've been a shot clock violation BEFORE the foul.

      For once, I'll give the NBA refs the benefit of the doubt on this call.

      Delete
    4. Lin has like 10 points!

      He's had no trouble driving past puny little Isaiah Thomas.

      Delete
  71. I love how Lin waved off Harden for the last shot

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He thought he got fouled on the last shot. No call from Refs again.

      Delete
    2. Lin totally got fouled on the last drive. Refs were in shock it was an Asian dude taking the last shot instead of Har_en.

      Delete
    3. I love it everytime jeremy gets the chance to shoot to end a quarter and not giving up the ball. Did he play the full 2nd Q?

      Delete
    4. You know Lin is getting benched for bricking that last shot.

      Delete
    5. He was definitely fouled, but only superstars get calls at the end of the half. So I can live with that no call.

      Great half from Jeremy despite his Chandler bricking every open jumper, a no-call on a fastbreak and getting robbed of an assist. Not to mention Jeremy first "posterize" dunk -- the block and the coast-to-coast handles were just as impressive.

      Delete
    6. NASTY defense by Lin.

      He's doing his one man defensive wrecking crew thing again, but friggin' James Harden is being victimized so much that it's offsetting Lin's DOMINANT defense.

      If Harden would just buckle down a bit defensively and stop leaking for 3s, the Rockets would likely have the Kings down by 20 despite the utterly inept Rockets big men getting BULLIED by the Kings youngsters.

      Delete
    7. Kenoshi

      Then jeremy shld do it more and piss his coach off. Anyways, i think mchale has learned that he cant really benched him for a long time unless he wants to lose

    1. Give Parsons a break. I believe he is a very versatile player. He is not on his game tonight. If he is on then the Rockets would be leading by now. It is the trend when Parsons is hot.

      Delete
    2. cuase he's terrible with the ball and should NOT be handling it as much as he does.

      Delete
    3. To Parsons' defense, he has played well this season. However, sometimes I think he thinks he's MJ.

      Delete
    4. Agree with k smith. Just wonder where parsons get the confidence to handle the ball knowing it is not his strength.

      Delete
  76. For some reason, the rotation help on defense is very slow tonight. The Kings are getting too many layups and second chances.

    ReplyDelete
  77. If Lin doesn't score 25+ this game, Rockets are going to lose this game.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Well guys houston is in the 7th spot right now. We need to win tonight to go one game ahead of Utah. And of course beat the Warriors. Clippers could go either way.

  80. On the NBA website with one of the highlights of Lin getting a "hoop and harm", the stupid old Kings announcer says racist lying garbage like "Lin is not as quick as you'd like to see in a point guard".

    Also, Harden is getting ATTACKED. If I were Sacramento, I'd go at him on every possession because he doesn't even put his arms up on defense. The Sacramento guards are either strolling past Harden in isolation or getting Harden tangled up in picks so that the Sacramento big men can roll to the rim for uncontested layups.

    I'll bet McHale is CHEWING ASS defensively of the entire team, not just Harden. The only guy who should be exempt from asschewing is Lin who's stupidly being helped by teammates on players like Isaiah Thomas who can't score even if he was unguarded.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agree on the dumb comment that Lin is not quick. Cracks me up. The other announcer did say some nice things about Lin though. This game illustrates huge gaping hole in Rockets that they are just allowing opponents to walk to the rim.

      Delete
    2. James Harden is THE HOLE that opponents are la-da-da-ing through.

      If I were coaching him, I'd bench him and SCREAM AT HIM to at least PRETEND to play defense. Then I'd put him back in the game and tell him to keep traveling because the refs are terrified of calling him for steps.

      Also, Marcus Morris hasn't shown up to play today. He just got ABUSED by Thomas Robinson.

      Delete
  81. Harden obviously trying to conserve energy on defense so he can score. Hopefully he will turn it on in the second half and pick up the scoring. Good game so far, let's see if the Rockets can pull away in the second half.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I got a feeling that Lin got a little frustrated when the ball never finds him back and it's a good thing if he can go a little Westbrook in this 'democratic-all-PG' offense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I actually see no problem with Lin's scoring and usage in a 50+ point half.

      I have a BIG PROBLEM with James Harden getting greyhounded defensively. He's singlehandedly keeping the Kings in the game with his horrifically bad defense.

      Those Rockets bigs are also getting schooled in isolation. Their utter lack of athleticism shows against the Kings which have jumping jacks at the power positions.

    1. Carlos Delfino misjudged Lin's ability to recover on Thomas from a help defense, leading to a John Salmons three.

      I'm sure the highly intelligent Delfino was like "My bad.

      Let Lin roam. He's tortured the Kings' offense, but he can't offset Harden's horrifically bad D. This is probably the worst I've ever seen Harden play defense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Attacking Lin laterally won't work, at least not without a pick.

      The Kings tried that and Lin completely stopped both Evans and Thomas. Lin forced Evans nearly out of bounds and blanketed Thomas like a raincoat.
