yay 4th foul for cousin
FK THIS ASIK.He is LUCKY they knocked it out.
Seriously. The guy tries his best, but he costs Jeremy 2-3 assists per game. Greg Smith better learn how to defend without fouling...he's badly needed.
Omer Asik, leading the NBA in fumbled passes in the paint since 2012.
Cousins fouls out and now Rox on attack.
they are running fredette, screening lin hard.
lin harden pnr, leads to parsons brick
lin ties up salmons. great defensive play
Actually a good sub by McHale. Lin is tired.
Beverley is in. Lin receives claps as he walks out.
here comes energy guy for HOUhope McHale doesn't fall in love with energy and decides he is the new PG
Energy guy better hope McHale didn't see that wide open air ball from the corner, LOL!
Parsons can't buy a basket.
Parsons has tired legs. He doesn't have the lift in his jump shot this game.
Is Sacremento a larger market, or is there just nothing else to do out there?Given Kings are bottom of the barrel they sure pack the stadium.
It is packed but looks lifeless.i dont know if they are aware they are watching basketball not golf.
t rob v. aldrich.
Beverly is a god damn noob.
Lol Beverley goes Iso and scores over Kings.He is SO copying Haren.
POOR defensive foul call against Lin for a fake foul against Salmons. Salmons ran himself into the baseline, lost his balance, and got bailed out by the bad NBA refs with a phantom foul call on Lin. I have no problem with Lin being subbed out at this point. The Rockets have momentum.
Sigh.I so believe its some bullsh*t agenda, Lin didn't even touch him.I don't get it, just let him play ball :/
yea, i thought it was jump ball but they gave possession to kings. not a rookie but Lin is treated like a 1st year player!
Agree. I think I have to get into NBA refereeing. These guys are not good.
Just like most jobs in USA, maybe they should outsource the referees job to Asia and see how the table turned lol
LOL RIKKI LIN WOULD GET ALL KINDS OF CALLS HAHA. Opposing guard would walk within 10ft and its like "FOUL!"
O M GW T FOUR BIG MEN ROYALLY SUCKS
Aldritch is just lost.
lolknew itt rob owning HOU front court, aldrich included
Ok I give up on my fantasy week... :( But Rockets need to win, at least I can be happy about that. They need to REBOUND! the ball! If they rebound they win, simple as that!
lol, another offensive rebound
back to back now...
Aldrich cannot even touch the ball when he goes for the rebound.such a waste...
Saw that salmons 3 like a mile away.
Great D by Beverley tho.
uh oh, beverley made an outstanding play...is that it for lin coming back?
how is Keith Smart still a coach?
this is a good game!
kings crowd better than hou crowd. thought kings getting relocated?
Seattle. Not a done deal.
t rob flying in. good thing that was a make on that free throw
Great steal by Beverley.Lin comes in at 6min again :P
bev another energy play.it doesn't look good for lin coming back
haha another offensive rebound given upleads to kings 3
This non rebound is really pissing me off.What the fk is with our bigs.
bev to delfino swish for 3lin probably won't come in again until 2 min left
No, Lin will return soon.
Bev played well.
hope that energy provided doesn't cloud the coaching staff's sub pattern
we're talking about the rockets coaching staff, c'mon now.
Aldridge and Harden are getting ATTACKED defensively. Patrick Beverly is trying to help defend, but he's no Jeremy Lin who can stop the defensive bleeding.
4th Qtr. Let's go Lin!
jimmer lolbev stuffs him.
Rotation was TOO good to be true for this game. But I guess McHale wants to finish with Lin so maybe 2 more minutes and put Lin in and then at 9 minute mark put Harden.
bev with dish. every positive play = 1 min off for lin's return
Is leaguepass behind?Already 92/84 wtf.
mchale grins over 3 seconds like a maniac? geez...is it that exciting to get off the bench?
ROX SLOWLY PULL AWAY! Let it be for good!!
here comes lin!
Looks like beverley is leading bench well...10pt lead now.
jeremy comes in, i can hear sacramento crowd cheering jeremy!he gets more love than HOU crowd
bench pulling awaybev playing well
Lin won't be back. He used up his 26 mins.
stupid foul lin.
Shit 4th on Lin .
thomas challenging lin. he has napoleon complex against lin
Lol Parsons got swatted out of the air by King's AAA...
Cousins foul out? He hella pissed
Harden is playing efficient D. No PFs yet. Those are MVP #s.
thomas has no j, even less so with lin challenging him
no j too strong, weak j is more apt
Parsons, blocked by the rim...Best defense ever.
lin playing defense against every kings player trying to penetrate, this time v. garcia
Why are they playing Taiko drums during Chinese New Years?
All look same.
Lion dancers must be over booked.
Man .. Lin played really good this game . i hope mchale gives him some love
thomas poking lin in eye
delfino, open lin, nope--bricks midrange
I see the plan now:McHale: Parsons, u know u my golden boy, but u cooold today...Tell u what, just get cousins to foul out and I'm going to spin this in yo favor!Parsons: sure coach!*parsons swatted outta the air*McHale in postgame: Our team played great, Parsons brought a lot of energy to the game, really helped us push over our rough patches.Media: What about Lin? And that posterizing dunk?McHale: You expect that from rookies, sometimes he has a nice game, pulls a little move, but he still has a lot to grow. He is doing great.
McHell: Lin is still growing as a player. He will be 6'5" by this time next year.
@Kenoshi~ Lol, could very well be like that
lin late on garcia run out. but garcia bricks
lin trying to regain lost ground v. thomas. fouls him hardgood for lin--shows some aggression
fuq, game over
Lin fouled out lol
He didn't foul out -- five fouls.That BS foul on Salmons has come back to haunt him.
Omfg 5th ! That's it! Tonight
5 fouls for lin, at least 2 phantom oneshayes and salmon
Aww! 5th PF on Lin. He's out.
He's 2 mins over his limit already.
well this fucking sucks. uggggggggggh.
delfino is not a PG. leads to morris iso.harden just shakes his head.
McHale gambling by taking out Lin. I'd still keep him in with 5 because the alternative is Beverley not Toney Douglas.
I'd put him back in with 4 minutes left.
lin out for the rest of the game...please...don't choke this one away
King's playing with more swagger?
the refs take out jeremynow kings storming back
At least his efficiency/PER will stay fine, lol.Tough luck on a couple BS fouls early, but hey, Jeremy never gives up on defense.
Holy crap Thomas made one.Game over.
Saw a nice gesture from mchale as lin goes to the bench. I didnt see any screaming too...seems like mchale is giving lin some respect now.hopefully this continues.
McHale needs to argue with the refs and stand up for Lin when they call the cheap fouls.
You mean McHell gave Lin some respect by not screaming at him?
Lin at least plays D.
that's just sad or how jlin fans have been abused by this coaching staffnot screaming=positive
The coaches have to put Lin back in the game, at least for the last 3 minutes
lin's not harden/parsons, he doesn't get to play when he has 5 fouls.
That was not a wise foul by Lin, but Mac should put Lin back in.
Rox seem lost w/o their Floor General!
Lin should just let him score that one.
Pathetic shot selection by the Rockets when Lin was in the game. Marcus Morris is not an NBA player today. He should be benched for Patterson. Carlos Delfino is playing selfishly, and bricking selfishly. No Lin, no lead. This game should never have gone this distance, but Harden and Morris refuse to defend while Parsons has no legs.
patterson stepping his game recently
delfino so late on that defensive rotation
Game over.This team is lost without Lin.
patterson bricks midrange. bring lin back inmchale needs to gamble now
Haisst... Game tied...
take delfino out, put bev in
take delfino out put lin in w/ bev so bev can waste his fouls on thomas
I criticized Patrick Beverley for poor defensive reaction time before he was even playing for the RocketsHe's getting ROASTED defensively by Isaiah Thomas. That reaction time isn't getting any faster.
True. I remember you making that point about Bev.
asik, the last line of defense, after bev cooked by thomas on penetration
harden man. garcia open 3.well, he makes up for that with an and 1
Harden! hope he's not hurt...
Lin back in
lol, thomas shoots a j in lin's face
Lin should have shot that one.
And he's out.
lin swings the ball around, ends with delfino brick
out for good... :(
Thank you very much NBA refs, goddammit
lin with bogus call on thomas
THIS DUDE IS A FLOPPER!!!! WHAT FOUL!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOO MAD!!!
HOW IS THAT A FOUL???My God. Another skin-color foul.
How was that last foul any different than the call Lin didn't get at the end of the first half?
Phantom or real foul? 13" monitor...
I guess it's phantom.
Another fake foul on Jeremy Lin.I HATE NBA refs.
and mchale didn't do anything. what's his reaction?
the refs just cooked lin
Can Harden please step up!!!!
TIM DONAGHY.Refs have money on this game and they need to get Jeremy the hell out of there ASAP.
Dick Bavetta is refereeing tonight. Tim Donaghy said that Dick Bavetta was one of the biggest cheating refs in the NBA. yup.
Absurd! Shoot the refs'
This is not happening.jeremy is much needed at this time...I guess this game is going to the kings...frustrating loss...hope im wrong....
This is the kind of game Rockets have to win if they want to get into playoff.
What a baffling game.Jeremy was 100% outstanding...except for 2-3 totally phantom fouls.Welcome to the NBA. Home of corruption and racism.
Rox needs to file in formal complaints to the NBA for the fake fouls, PLEASE.
ISO Harden hits the J.
harden with superstar swish
Ha ha .. Harden heard me!!!
asik big offensive rebound
but harden fumbles on penetration
ISO Harden blocked.
really....? harden got hand?
supposedly elbow. whatever
At least Harden put his hands up.
gameoverdumbest loss ever
too early for ISO
The refs gave this game to Sacramento.
Yup. And it's so easy to make Houston lose. Call phantom fouls on Lin and the game is 99% over. Like George Karl says, Jeremy is the motor of the offense. Not to mention the anchor of the defense.What a joke league. Refs have all the power and are immune from any discipline whatsoever. They probably made a ton of money tonight.
Omg! Lose to this bad record team,this is no good.
Lin getting called when he gets near people. Lets go Harden. Win this for Lin
lin's stupid, fucking fouls.
no, lin's not stupid. lin knows Mchale will bench him no matter what so lin on purpose got the fouls so mchale can have legitimate reason to bench him, so no fans will bashing mchale for that. Lin is such a smart guy showing love for his coach.
harden got robbed on the offensive end. no call
These REF!!! Seriously! We need to win this one, still a lot of time to play.
so madlose to such a crappy teamwtf is with these guysthey underestimated kings, this seems to be a really bad pattern of theirs
better stay on this site...the other forums are gonna go off on Lin.
may be this site will go off on lin too!
C'mon, Harden. Don't let your 30 pts. go down the drain.
God please give this one to the rockets.
NOt going to happen.Refs going to call this kings
garbage losswhat the EFF were they doing on that last possession?!
the follr general is out. that's why...
They are going to give the ball to Rockets, I am pretty sure.
Finish the game already only got 1% on my laptop.
After this one ,they gotta play the golden states and the clippers.omg!
They can beat both those teams if Jeremy gets remotely fair treatment from refs. And McHale, lol.
The officiating in this game was worse than the officiating at that one Hornets game. Is the NBA trying to push up the Kings/push down the Rox?
I think the difference was Thomas scores 7 consecutive points on bev middle of 4 th
that was at least thomas putting up shots and making themthink the refs cooking lin was the major turning point
and the offensive boards close second
lose to this team. unbelievable
Wow! Ten seconds go by and no foul, what the fuck
You know Keith smart is laughing his ass off.
Like, so much for Harden and Jeremy.
What a stupid loss by Rockets. I have to say Rockets deserve to not make it to playoff. They are not ready yet.
These ref are horrible! That's it. Nothing much to complain other than refs, and OBVIOUSLY we didn't rebound. Rotation tonight was pretty good I would say. But defense, Rebounds, and Refs killed us.
i kinda blame lin on his lacadasical play when he picked up his 4th and 5th fouls. those weren't neccessary.
The only bright side?Everyone is forced to realize how important Jeremy is.Once he got in foul trouble the game was over.
