TO Parsons again.mm hmm.
2/6 Lin so far.. Might go back to his struggling from shooting the ball again.
He has to get in rhythm, this 10 shots per game crap is bad for him.
Yah there's no rhythm in this game at all.
yeah, he just need to take more shots, 6 is way to little for a half.
I'm putting this on Lin.
C'mon!!!! Let's do it JLin!!!!
About effing time
Comeback by Harden and Parsons. Expect Lin to be on the bench. It's about that time.
They just took a block away from Lin.
Worrell made a comment that Lin is much faster than his opponents perceive him to be and thus he is getting alot of steals. No duh, Einstein!
Worrell needs to STFU.
He's stronger too!
Worrell thinks he is smart by making that comment.
Not looking good for Lin. He is still stuck on 6 assists after Asik messed up a pass from Lin.
why so inconsistent lin... so sad...
Hes looking good. 3pt just barely rimmed out.
It's frustrating as hell. He takes himself out of the game more than anyone else.
was really hoping that he'd finish the season with atleast 15pts... ;(
Jeremy making great passes all night...his teammates struggling to convert.Meanwhile, he's missed a couple open looks in a row. Shake that rust off, Jeremy. Team needs you to score tonight...
Asik got a great rebound off Delfino's 3PT miss.Lin should have gotten that assist.I'm a little concerned with the lack of 3PT shooting in this game.
Yea Delfino is 0-3. He needs to hit those esp after that wide open look after Lin's drive.
Must be McHale told lin not to take that much shot!
Parsons should not be playing the point. Either Lin or Harden. And show be at least 75% Lin
He's doing something right to warrant all that fuckin playing time.
McHell is a Belieber.
Now you start hitting your shot after Lin sits?!
Defino hates Lin! LOL
Delfino just dunked twice in this game. What kind of game is this when Delfino is dunking? Hahahaha.
It means the bucks are respecting his 1 for 5 beyond the arc.
He wants that starting PF job back from DMo !!! :D
I hate this team.
Rockets better get back in this game. Because if they lose, seriously they would be shooting themselves in the foot.
McHale giving Harden PG duties is failing big time. Harden with 5 TO's after Ellis steals the ball from him and passing it to Reddick for a 3 pointer. I wonder if the Beard will ignore McHale as he heads for the bench?
Har_den has six turnovers now. Is McHale going to get in his face?!?
Omg! This is a gift 3 pts for the bucks.
They always come out gunning and then everyone else wants to play the point and the Rockets get all out of sync and then usually Harden or Lin has to bail them out in the 4th. Let Jeremy play the point. Make your 3s or dunk the ball. Easy.
I guess it's back to team rebuilding mode.
Lin needs to be more aggressive in the 4Q to score!
awww.. why the slump Jeremy? did McHale really told him to stop getting 29 points per game?
I am surprised to see Dmo's stat line looks not so impressive.
Lin in the game and got his 7th assist with a pass to D-Mo.
Lin to DMo sighting!
Lin with an amazing cross over to freeze the defender and layup on the left hand side.
Lin's crossover on Jennings for 2!
Lin taking over
D-Mo with a good pick on Jennings and Jennings have to foul him.
Delfino thinks he is MJ tonight!
Delfino getting really lucky. What's he is really doing is disrupting the offense's flow.
Dmo is driving on every friggin possession...
Oh man, didnt expect the game would be this close. Come on ROX...
Exactly my thought.
come on.rockets can do it.go jlin
Lin has to go stronger against shot blockers. Sanders saw that coming a mile away.
No T-Rob sighting in the 2nd half. I think McHale had enough of the experiment.
He is like a more raw version of GS... if that's even possible.
Was that "block" a goaltend? Couldn't tell from my pixelated angle. Bucks announcer said, "Should be two." Not sure if he meant the bucket or # of blocks by Sanders...
McHale sat down Lin in favor of Harden and Beverly combo. WTF?
My thoughts exactly.
Unbelieveably stupid by McHale. Beverley can't guard Monte or Redick. Rockets aren't hitting their threes tonight. They need to play D.
If the Rockets lose then McFail can't blame it on Lin because so far I didn't see any defense played with Beverly, Harden and Parsons combo.
FUCK MCHALE's coaching
Jeremy benched for missing a shot...ugh.Now Ellis eating Beverly alive. Same old McHale...he'll cost them this game.
Look like Lin won't come back.fucks wrong with mchale
Lin coming back. Lin will finish and score 4 more pts
Can we trade Delfino for Redick?
Can we trade Trob for TD?
can we trade Popovich for McHale?
This is complete BS.
Yup this is like Rocket's worse game ever.And, definitely the worse game ever compared to all the other non-Harden iso games.
Stephen Curry is going off on NY Knicks. he got 41 points so far. Eating fat Felton alive.
Unfortunately, no other GSW showed up.
Ok ! Lin is checking back in,damn harden has 7 TO.thats hurt the team.
Harden: 7 TOs; Parsons: 4 TOs. Ridiculous.
LIn is back in with Harden, Asik, Parsons and Delfino.
Rockets could miss the playoffs if this continues.Lin back in now...even McHale realized how idiotic that benching was.
harden and parsons with 14 to's wow
Delfino shoot 12 times in 14 minutes and missed 8?
Lin gets one turnover and McHale lectures him. Harden gets seven and nobody says a word.
McHell is coaching Lin because he's young...
Make that 5 TOs for Parsons.
Great bucket by Jeremy.Parsons is he worst ballhandler ever. And can't hit any wide-open shot Jeremy gets him tonight. Layup or jumper.
what? air ball alley opp?
Wow, Lin threw it up there for Asik and he actually went above the rim for a slam dunk.
LOL score keeper gave him a rebound on the play too?
Ha score keeper didn't give Lin an assist cuz it was an airball?
Score keeper is retarded. Ball went over the rim directly to Asik so it should be a pass.
Is there anyone that keeps these people accountable?
Houston coach can protest.
Jeremy can't buy an assist from sausage and bieber..
This game is dragging me to bed... I hate to be a pessimist at this point, but rockets need to unleash some good shots and defend at the same time, otherwise thisvis going to milwaukee and i think it is....tough and rough see rockets lose..... Worse, painful to see jlin benched at crunch time
Jeremy Lin making things happen out there!!That miss by Parsons was killer. He needs to hit those.
I can't believe Parsons missed that. Lin drawed 4 defenders and Parsons couldn't hit the open 3. That would have been a killer. But, we are still in a close game. Got to keep it up!
Was it really a pass? Omfg
Yes, it definitely was. Great look; I am impressed.
They didn't give him an assists. Yahoo scored it as a missed fade away.
I don't know why they didn't give that assist to Lin; you have to give a benefit of doubt.
Lin playing Linsanity ball. Even when he misses they are highlight reel assists. Harden and Lin at the end and thats it.
See how easy it look for Lin to run the play? It's freakin smart basketball man.
Scorer didn't give Jeremy an assist on that...to be fair, I'm not sure it was on purpose. It'd be amazing if it was...and it could have been knowing Jeremy.Of course, Jeremy was also fouled hard on that.
Gets jacked twice in 1 second.
Lin didnt get the assist.
I don't think that was a pass,it was an air ball
Getting hacked hard...no calls even when he bleeds from his mouth. Wrong skin color.And an spectacular alley-oop that was called a missed shot and putback. Not sure what it is, but the scorer obviously won't give Jeremy the benefit of the doubt.
These refs are eating those calls. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!
Asik.. can't go above the rim consistently.. Lin thought he's playing with Tyson for a sec.
Bush league coaching. Bush league reffing... zzz
iso delfino bricks.
5 for 14
Delfino wanted to be the hero,not u man.
Yup, Harden playing hero ball instead of passing it he decided to take it himself and got blocked.
Why is lin making those airballs? That is so hard to explain.
Four days off...rust. Everyone looks rusty, including Harden and Parsons. He looks good other than a couple missed jumpers.Also, horrendous officiating preventing him from taking to the rim (he won't get calls so he forces up a last minute floater).
Larry Sanders killed the Knicks last year too when they played the Bucks.
I thought it was Dunleavy?
I want to see OT. Win or lose, lol.
Asik is battling Tyson Chandler for most rebounds tonight. Chandler is beating him with 25 vs 22 rebounds.
Ellis's stat line used to be JLin's last year.
Except Lin had better FG%.
When is their next game?
Not soon enough.
Parsons making sure to not ruin his fg% . Clyde's words, not mine.
Jeremy defended amazing...nobody else did, allowing a rebound and extra pass to Ellis.
You know everyone's going to harp on Lin's 4/11 though. It's deserved to some degree.When Lin plays well, we usually win. No matter how well Parsons plays next to Harden, we lose.
there you go, blame Lin for only shooting 4 for 11. IT was all his fault.
Gave another game away. I really think Rockets will finish 9th in their Conference. Great D by Lin though at the end. Hot hands by Ellis.
Good D by Lin, Montaaaaaa killed em.
Huge props to McFridge, Sampson, Harden, and Parson. You guys are the best
YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! PARSONS ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN'T DEFEND YOUR GUY. CAN'T GET A DEFENSIVE REBOUND. THIS IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!
Horrendous, back-breaking loss. Real demoralizing.Terrible coaching. Benching Jeremy...running offense through Parsons (lol). Same old McHale. He's the worst end-game coach I've ever seen anywhere at any level in any sport.
exactly, Mchale refuses to put the ball into Lin's hands...Lin was no where in the offense nor the pg tonight.When will this moron of coach understand that!!James no defense harden and I cant stand parsons as a player. He is not a good player IMO, he no fing dfense ...both of them had 12 to's
Lin playing defense all by himself.
Bieber caught flat footed.
Nothing new here. Move along. Same old, same old.
Exactly nothing new and nothing changes. Wish I could.
That's really hurt so bad .
arrrghhh!!!!! I was gunning for an OT win!
McFail again.... LAL needs this one badly!!
TRob ain't going to be all that helpful this season, so it doesn't look good for Rockets.
Morey got shafted.
Morey likes to gamble on trades, draft picks, etc. He lost. T. Robinson looks like a scrub. At least better than Royce White, but still a scrub.
Curry with 49 points and torching the Knicks. GSW up by a point 100 to 99.
that is so ouch! I can imagine Jeremy throwing his towel to the ground at the locker room in frustration
Someone needs to do something about the officiating. Lin gets 0 calls on offense, and even less on D. Ellis full out ran into him a couple of times - nada. This game looked like it was set up by the refs to show off Ellis.
I think LAL will end up 7th, Utah 8th and then Houston 9th.
Na. Rockets 7, Lakers 8 and Utah 9. But the Rockets better pick up their game. They can't be slacking like this.
How can we blame this loss on Lin?
Don't worry, retarded HOU fans will find a way.
Simple, he wasn't in the game.
SMH a million times..this game was very disappointing. Even if it went to OT, i think rockets would still lose...
I also don't fucking understand the coaching... Lin's the best defender against mid-to-small back courts, why the fuck wasn't he on Ellis?
ask McFail...he basically doesn't trust his starting pt for anything.....
live or die with 3pt and TOs.
This loss is on parsons. So many missed open looks.. So many stupid TO's. this is the risk u take with this offense. If parsons plays like this, the Rox can't win. Reminds me so much of the sac game, when parsons missed almost every jump shot.And Lin took some horrendous looking shots in this game. His play will not ingratiate towards McHale. But really is this gimmicky offense with no real pg.
Lol lose to bucks. Im waiting for the people to come out and say any team can beat any team blah blah feel good commentUtah and Lakers laughing their asses off...wizards then bucks. Hahahahaha garbage.Lin didnt play well either...calls or not he is forcing too maby shots and missing easy layups dont sugar coat it. Delfino is retarded. They just could not finish at the rim all night.Garbage
For the most part I think it's Dmo who was disrupting the offensive flow.
Agree with you Kenoshi
Dmo? I didn't think so. How did he disrupt the flow?
People praising Ellis, when they should be screaming at Parsons. SMH.... Now hope that Jazz, GSW, and Portland loses.
Lol Parsons vs Ellis mismatch from hell, I'm surprised Ellis didn't break Parson's ankles.
Watch Harden going back to his old ways of just trying to get 25pts a game.
Curry is playing out of his mind.
Did GSW win?
Everyone could have played better. Lin will be the scapegoat though.
And harden forced too many shots. But I wouldn't be surprised if McHale took a swipe at Lin in the pg interview.
Well I guess Curry feels worst than us. 54 points for a loss.
Can't say anything more but this rockets is regressing in more ways than one instead of progressing. They don't deserve to be in the playoffs if they play this way, otherwise they get a spot but wont go deep into playoffs.
It's not that they are regressing, but, that the this team post-trades is a pretty different team pre-trade, and this game reflects that. No one looked in their comfort zone, except for the first quarter, before the bench players started to come in. Then McHale started to wing it, trying to figure out how to make it all work with the new players and without the old players.
Lin not hitting his outside jumpshots .... did he practice his shot these past 4 days off ?
that's the thing with lin. when he's good he's real good. when he's bad he's bad. there's never an in between. smh. dont know what else to say. im disappointed by lin's offensive game 2nite, but he was playing good defense. the whole team stunk it up today. after many days off, they still look lethargic for some damn odd reason.
Way too harsh. Lin didn't play badly at all, unless you only count shooting as the barometer of good or bad play. Man, Jeremy Lin fans are fucking harder on Lin than everyone except McHale, Sampson, and Lin.
Rox only had one block - by Jeremy. The rest of the team are either don't know or don't want to defend so that they can score more and more and become superstars? sigh
yeah. is McHale pulling a D'Antoni now how puts more emphasis on offense than defense? I thought offense wins games,defense wins championships?
there's seems to be a lot of hesitation on both offense and defense. i think we're now seeing the full effects of breaking up a team at this crucial juncture. the reliable Js from patterson is no where to be found. morris's 3pt shooting also missed. if morey is going to pull the rug from under them like this, expect an adjustment period. its not gonna be easy. luckily there are still some easy games ahead of them and the team can still get their mojo back. smh.
I agree, if Morey is going to trade away 2 big pieces ... he should get someone back that can be used IMMEDIATELY, ASAP. But instead he trades Patterson and Morris for guys who are either never going to see the floor, or D-League caliber projects.Wasted trade.
i think the trade was a good one just bad timing.
Wow, everyone is being so harsh! You can't blame Parsons for that ridiculous shot going in. The loss really reflects the transition the team is going through with the trade. You want to blame a player, it was TRob, who looked totally lost and single-handedly gave away the big lead. But, we'll see how things go but, Morey may end up being the one to blame because he may have made one trade too many this season. I understand the Patterson trade, even if TRob may not be ready to help out this season. But, the Morris trade for a second round pick? Why? He made an inexperienced team even more inexperienced for the stretch run. Even if DMo settles in as starter at the four, what the trades did was to weaken the bench, unless TRob and the other guy from Sacramento can provide meaningful minutes, really fast.
it wasnt trob's fault. it's just transition and getting to play with the new pieces. on top of that, the usual suspects just played like dog poop the the entire game.
When Lin is playing bad with TO's, McFail benches him immediately ... when Parsons is playing bad with mounting TO's he stays on the court.
He is the second option for the team, our 1st and 2nd option gave 13 TOs in total.
R u surprised? It's been happening all year.
Not really, I think Lin is doing OK today, he was forced to take a shot when PnR with D-Mo was not working right. I think D-MO is tired.
well ATL has 13pt lead on Utah atm in 4q, hopefully Utah loses.
No way parson should have played 42 minutes. He missed so many open looks and made too many to trying to be a pg.And I absolutely hate Mchale's substitution pattern. It looks like he does everythingossible to take Lin and the team out of sync. Let Lin finish the 1st quarter, ESP when he is playing well. When u are up 16 points, u need to go for the jugular. This loss was unacceptable. He needs to tke the blame.. But u know he won't.
When Lin went to bench, everything just collapse.
I told u harden gave a 3pts gift for the bucks the end of 2nd quarter.if not ! They didn't have to lose.
hmm.. would this loss be because McHale is still figuring out with substitutions including the new guys, slacking on defense, or pulling out his play maker? tsk tsk...
