  1. Home court, so we have to listen to Bill Warrell and Clyde "The Glide" Drexler. Hopefully tonight they will not make idiotic comments and stay on topic.

  2. This will be an wxciting game cant wait! Get ready guys! :)

  3. Tonight key match up will be Lin vs Lillard. Lin needs to play superb defense and shut him down and at the same time create offense for the Houston. No stupid TO's. It should be very exciting to watch. Rockets need this game. Portland beat them twice already.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Rockets need to guard against Aldrige from shooting the mid range shot and also from out rebounding them. He has long arms and can out rebound PPat and Marcus Morrison.

    1. So far, Rockets have not been able to guard Aldridge. He is shooting over PF's and Asik at will.

  5. Play off intensity and hustle boys!!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Already 1 assist for Lin with a pass to Asik. Portland was looking for a high PnR.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Wow!!! What a beautiful play! Never seen that before!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Lin with an early FG. Rockets up by 2 points.

    ReplyDelete
  9. wow Jeremy's 3s at the top of the key is getting deadly!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Por favor, anybody have links to a live stream?

    ReplyDelete
  11. That is not a fucking travel. EVERY NBA player does it 3 or 4 times a game.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well guys, I'm telling you this will be an exciting game! I got to excited with that last Lin 3... Wish he would have made it to be 3/3 behind the arc. But I will take the 2/3 though.

    Sidenote: 1-1 Lin can defend well Lillard. The problem comes with the picks and team defense. They have to figure out something.

    1. Who's back in, Lin or Bev.

      Delete
    2. I want to see Lin play, but I don't want to see TD hurt. Him and Lin are close.

      Delete
    3. Then I rather someone who's not close to Lin be injured instead.

      Delete
  14. Hardly ever get to see Lin and Aldrich play together. McHell always match Lin with Asik.

    1. He didn't get the pass, but at least he attempts to be Amare-esque.

      Delete
  15. Lin with 7 points and 3 assists vs Lillard who has 5 points and 2 assists. Could Beverly be benched because of his dunk against GSW during garbage time? Lin is in after TD pulled what looks like a hip pointer.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin shot is having some consistency. He has been able to hit 2 out of 3 three pointers.

      Delete
    2. I answered my own question. Beverly is in for Lin to start the 2nd quarter.

      Delete
  16. Harden is such a ball hog at times, he could have reset the position and give the ball to lin at the end of the 1st to set up a play

    ReplyDelete
  17. B squad on the floor except Asik.

    ReplyDelete
  18. 6 3s so far. On pace to break the record.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Asik can't finish from under the rim. What happened to his aggression from games ago? Miami softened him up?

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's twice the bald headed ref call a travel on the Rockets. One on Lin and one on Anderson.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hate does "travelling" calls

    ReplyDelete
  22. If Howard Chen's hair is longer, he'd look like Vegeta.

    ReplyDelete
  23. where is Lin!!!!!!!! If harden is in the game then should Lin come in as well

    ReplyDelete
  24. Harden dishes more than he shoots now.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Harden with 12 points and 6 assists and 1 TO. Maybe he should be the PG instead of Lin. When he is racking up the assists means he is not playing ball hog. He is changing his game without Lin in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Harden is stealing Lin's assists.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Harden is playing unselfishly and making others around him better.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Mchale liked Beverly's defense on Lillard, which was indeed good so Lin can't get back. Mchale could care less about Lin's offense. He wants Harden to be the offense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's not a bad rotation if indeed Bev is better at guarding Lillard.

      Bev is on Lillard's back except for the split second that counts.

      Delete
  29. LOL I REALLY don't understand Mchale's subbing. I hope if Portland loses, they ask why Lin didn't play in the 2nd Q LOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. Houston commentators are on Lillards gonads. Pay him higher compliments than they ever gave Lin. They say that he can't be stopped and he is so composed. I never see a bunch of commentators who is oohing and aaahing over an opposition PG before.

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOL Lin .... he probably wouldn't get hit in the head if he didn't do that Harden head fake.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lillard went off on Beverly. Scored like 7 points on him.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes Bev looks like he's doing a good job but Lillard can always creates space a split second before he shoots.

    1. Harden playing skip skip skip to my loo and gets fouled.

      Delete
    2. LOL your internet is faster than mine. I read your post before I saw Harden do his Euro-Asia steps.

      Delete
  34. Just want to say Lins D this game on Lillard is better than bev, he score 7 straight on him before Lin back

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just hear the Houston commentator praising Beverly's defense? They are that biased?

      Delete
  35. Lin being agressive, trying to dominate the offense after being frozen out sitting on the bench. I like it because he realizes Mchale is freezing him out. Lin almost called his own number and tried to shoot a 2 point jumper off the screen.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Lin with his third 3 pointers. I was right, our PF can't keep Aldridge from scoring on them.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow the blazers are not guarding Harden lol

    ReplyDelete
  38. Lin doing well, controlling the game, and hitting 3s.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lin is doing a F*** YOU MCHALE with the 3. AND I saY f*** you coaching staff.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Harden is playing really well tonight. 18 points and 8 assists. He just split like a triple team and scored.

    ReplyDelete
  41. another Jeremy 3 on top of the key!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Game was kind of slow but both team staring to heat up.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Harden is on 7-7, has not missed yet.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lin HAS FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT! HE IS BALLHOGGING AND SCORING POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE GOT TIRED OF BEING PLAYED BEING FROZEN ON THE BENCH! GOOOOOOOO LIN!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey the ball is flowing. No one person is hogging at the moment.

      Delete
    2. ok Lin is being "agressive" looking for his points...He would have never have shot the 3 and missed that layup before. He would have passed off playing team ball. Seriously he was trying HARD to score one he came back in because he now knows in the NBA it's ALL about scorers.

      Once Lin shows he can score alot then he can do his team ball thing

      Delete
  45. Harden and Aldridge so far unstoppable and show why they are All Stars.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Nice moves to the basket against Lilliard! Lin should have had that one but I think he was probably worried about someone swatting him from behind.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Harden is playing like a superstar today, very efficiently also, since they are not double teaming him.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love what I am seeing from Lin now. F*** the Rockets Front Office and Coaching Staff. If Lin does this and scores points, people will take notice. They don't appreciate his assists and team oriented contributions.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I heard Batum is injuried, probably explained why he hasn't made any impact so far. Good for the Rockets.

    ReplyDelete
  50. bill worrell: jlin gettin fouled all the way to the basket and no call!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Awww man! Robbed of the three... good decision on the Blazers' part to review it though.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Rox won't get 24 tonight cuz of Lin stepping on the line.

      Delete
  52. LOL did Asik mean to go glass?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Bill Worrell said you just can't bounce pass it to Asik because he is just too big. Clyde chimes in by sadying those are the mistakes you make in Oct. and Nov.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Those are some mean comments hahaa.. I thought that pass was too low.

      Delete
    2. Clyde is hard on *all* players. But he's also much more fun to listen to than the other commentators.

      Delete
  54. hm..Lin should have shot that one with clock running out.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Lurch forgot he called a 20 second time out and was trying to argue his point before Sampson came over and said you called a 20 to bench Lin remember. Lurch was upset with himself heading back to the huddle with his team.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Lin's defense forced Lillard to give up the ball resulting in 1 TO just now.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Why did Houston call a timeout with just 3 seconds left? Trying to understand the strategy. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  58. man I'm getting sick with this punk Spike Lee commercial

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I like Spike Lee. He likes Jeremy Lin when he was with the Knicks.

      Delete
    2. You got to give props to the man, he is s true blue die hard Knicks fan through and thru.

      Delete
  59. Uh oh, they interviewing Sampson. Sampson is staring up at the scoreboard and talking about Harden and how the Rockets will be in trouble if Harden misses in the 2nd half. I really hate this idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Sampson with 1st half interview. Said Aldridge hurt them bad. I expect him to say Lillard was killing them too. But Sampson is more seasoned now and knows the Asian media and fans will dissect the stats and show Beverly was torched, not Lin.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Impressive, the idiot learned something!

      Delete
    2. That's just swinglinezigzag assessment. It's not true. Sampson will just say anything that comes to his mind. He doesn't really care. If it was up to him, then shooting isn't a democracy. He rather play hero ball.

      Delete
    3. fucking moron needs to die. not literally but just disappear from this team.

      Delete
  61. Lin be very sad in court
    He needs to order their agents for trade in next season

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Can you explain why he is sad? He said on the radio that he is very happy and having fun playing ball with his Houston Rockets teammate right now. The offense is changing and everybody is developing better chemistry.

      Delete
    2. I think he just travelled to the future from last month ;)

      Delete
  62. Lin's gotta do more of this holding his head thing to get more calls.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin needs to curse in Mandarin at the Refs so that they can't T him up.

      Delete
    2. He needs to dye his hair blond, so the refs can see the hits to his head more clearly.

      Delete
    3. He needs to dye his hair with a new high tech pigment that changes color in response to impact. Biased refs pwned!

      Delete
    4. Perhaps dye his hair like Dennis Rodman except get a bulleyes on his head. The dye will rub off when he gets hit on the head.

      Delete
    5. LOL wear some crumple zones.

      Delete
  63. Why does espn play by play show that Lin has 10pts? Shouldn't he have 11? Did one of his 3's turn into a 2?

    Sorry, haven't been able to watch the game until now.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. his last 3 was deduced to 2 because he stepped on the line.

      Delete
    2. Refs did replay and Lin stepped on the line. They sure don't analyze the no-calls with the same intensity.

      Delete
  64. I am surprise that Sampson didn't mention anything about Tony Douglas injury. He is probably thinking of ways to insert Beverly ahead of Lin again.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Another proof that the fxxxing snake has no heart. TD was his favorite before Beverley was signed.

      Delete
  65. Oh, that's nice that Harden wants a triple double. Way to put your stats above the team.

    2. Actually I think Harden's playing unselfish today. To be fair, it's hard to ignore his 8 assists.

      Delete
  66. Asik did well with 4 blocks in the 1st half but Aldridge owned PPat scoring at will with 19pts.

    Let's hope Aldridge cool off soon.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lin will get so many assists if he has a guy like Aldridge on his team. That guy is money from mid range. Rockets still have no answer on how to slow him from his hot shooting.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Rockets try to combat Aldridge with Asik and so far it isn't working.

      Delete
  68. Harden with a smart move to post up his man after grabbing an offensive rebound. He got the foul call.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Can't blame Harden on that one. He was looking for a pass, but no one was moving, so he had to take the shot.
