    1. Whoever he was, he didn't even raise his hands up.

  2. Again, no foul calls after Westbrook pushed Lin from behind and Asik and Lin got mauled but no foul call by Refs. Are we playing in Houston or OKC?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Asik blew a nice assist from Lin, but Rockets were able to get the offensive rebound. Parsons got fouled on a layup attempt.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Man, Asik blew Lin's assist again with his Turkish ballet moves!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Parsons blew a nice dish from Lin and then Lin made it up with a steal and a pass to Parsons for the easy dunk and assist.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Someone said Calvin Murph dont like the trades..surprised he said that because I usually agree with him but I think the trades are great. Trob brings athleticism as a big and and now Dmo/Jones etc can get some minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  7. What a great steal by Lin!!!! Parson's dunk to finish it!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am surprised Lin's up to 7 assists after all those blown conversions by his teammates.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, Asik have costed him at least 2 blown assists

      Delete
  9. Rockets are introducing flexsanity at $60 minimum for any four games. What a steal. Wish they offer that at MSG, I would take it in a heartbeat.

  11. Lin's help defense caused Durant to miss

    ReplyDelete
  12. Parsons needs to give the ball up....he is like Delfino with the ball...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Here is a GREAT Thomas Robinson article, what a rare young man. Definitely rooting for him to succeed:
    http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/7207167/ncb-kansas-jayhawks-center-thomas-robinson-used-basketball-help-tragedy-espn-magazine


    In terms of scouting reports, Robinson has a super high motor, very hard worker, has elite rebounding skills, average defense, and a raw offensive game and not a lot of range on his shot. He could turn into a slightly better offensive version, slightly worse defensive version, of Kenneth Faried.

    1. He is athletic. The Rockets badly need some athleticism in the PF/C position. He will dunk some Lin lobs.

      Delete
    2. oh, I remember this article.

      What a great story about a responsible older brother to his sister after the mom died and the whole KU team rallied behind him.

      He sounds like a great talent with more potential than Morris or PPat.

  14. BS call by the Refs again on the clear path foul. I am getting a feeling this game is rigged for OKC to win.

    ReplyDelete
  15. WOW WTF REFS WANT OKC TO WIN PARSONS WAS ROBBED!!! WTF!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Cant say enough abt jlin's game tonight.this is how he shld have been utilized since the early part of the season.rockets would have a better standing

    ReplyDelete
  17. Rigged game not even worth watching now fargin bs argh so mad.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ibaka is assigned to guard the "deadly" opposing players - LeBron James, Kobe, etc. must be a compliment for Jeremy to be guarded by him. Brooks is scared he might explode lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Westbrook alone can't contain the boy... and tons of people say Jeremy is and will never be at par or better than Westbrook lol

      Delete
  19. If Omer was a decent non-clumsy offensive center, he could really be something....his layup misses are painful

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Both greg and asik are afraid to dunk in traffic. It's like their knees get soft.

      Delete
  20. Wow, a block from Parsons on Westbrook and they call that a foul.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Baaaah....Westbrook tried to showboat with the dunk and missed it. That was when Harden turned over the ball.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup, he thought he was still at the ASG where they are not playing defense.

      Delete

    1. Rolled ankle. His ankle is not as strong as Lin.

      Delete
    2. it all depends on how you roll it, cant really compare one against the other

      Delete
  23. Wow there goes Parsons...Really badly rolled.

  25. What a great move by Lin to the basket!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Replies
    1. usually he's benched so he doesn't get those opportunities

      Delete
  27. Bev just tried to make a HR pass.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lin's last 2 shots are usually when he's benched. Lin tends to hit those shots and get points when he is in longer.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lin is having a great game tonight. 20 points, 8 assists.

    ReplyDelete
  30. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HARDEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. HARDEN FROM BEHIND THE HALFCOURT LINE!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Greg Smith fumbling easy passes from Lin?!? COME ON!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wasnt that a pass from Beverly?

      Delete
    2. Lin would have 10 assists if Smith went up and dunked it instead of holding it under the basket and getting it stripped.

      Delete
  33. Harden's 3 from mid-court!!!!!! Pandemonium!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow Harden, hope that give a good momentum for us. Still have to defend Thabo better though, you already gave him career high

    ReplyDelete
  35. LINSANITY!!!

    PLUS HARDEN-MANIA. Half-court 3.

    If only the refs would call a fair game. Houston probably loses because of it, but at least it's getting fun.

    ReplyDelete
  36. You know that shot is going to the highlights.

    Wasn't some desperate shot either he just looked at it ice cold and sank that sucker beyond half court.

    Awesome!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He wasn't launching that ball either. Just shot it like any other 3pter.

      Delete
  37. Minus 1 player again for rockets..they dont have a deep bench after the 3 guys left..i wonder who else can step up from the bench?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Harden's 3pt% is pretty good tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  39. WOW Lin sick move avoiding the trap

    ReplyDelete
  40. Replies
    1. And Kevin Martin was inside the arc ... EVERY call is going against the Rockets vs. OKC.

      Delete
  41. ANouther BS call.

    Refs fking suck.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I guess no one from the bench will step up tonight...hardlin will have to carry this team to get a W

    ReplyDelete
  43. Dang ... good game! Just checking in with y'all.

    ReplyDelete
  44. REFS WON'T LET OKC LOSE.

    Yet another BS call...

    ReplyDelete
  45. How many effing fouls does gsmith

    ReplyDelete
  46. Beverly fighting for the ball real hard. I like him.

    ReplyDelete
  47. my LP just showed CP rolled his ankle, arghhh....

    thinking of not buying it next year :-(

    ReplyDelete
  48. How many times does Collison have to hit someone to get fouled?!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Asik finally went up correctly. Make it or get fouled...

    ReplyDelete
  50. Man, I only see 3 players on the Rockets bench

    ReplyDelete
  51. Dont NBA fans ever threaten the refs?

    ReplyDelete
  52. WOw refs let another foul go.

    WHAT THE EFF MAN

    ReplyDelete
  53. Refs totally giving this game away.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Rockets losing the lead with Lin on the bench.

    ReplyDelete
  55. All the BS calls and yet McHale refuses to pick up a technical. Which shows me he is not aggressive enough in standing up for his players or what he believes is the wrong call. No wonder Refs are getting away with murder because the coach lets them get away with it. If I was coach, I would have been thrown out of the game already.

    ReplyDelete
  56. What's up with the refs tonight?

    What did the fans yell about the ref that Drexler agreed?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Haha the game is indeed kinda rigged tonight. Unless Houston played insane, the NBA was not going to allow the Rox to win a close one.

    It just wouldn't look right for the team with a league low payroll to dominate everyone....so the NBA thinks...

    And this is why Houston will get eliminated in the playoffs early...BS ref calls control the NBA game, not the players.

    ReplyDelete
  58. No ball movement when lin is off the court.but he needed to rest though.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He's not looking to score when he is in. Keeps passing it to Parsons who has been ineffective. I think they need to start re-thinking the bromance thing ... he's passing too to Parsons.

      Delete
  59. Refs don't just want Houston to lose, they want them to lose by a blowout!

    ReplyDelete
  60. This game is over.

    Rox not even defending perimeter now.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Is Houston trading 3's with OKC? Why the hell are you leaving Sef open when he is hitting all his shots tonight? Nice adjustment from McHale. Way to coach.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Parsons is back in the game with Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Seen this before ... too date for Lin and too many pts given up. Fingers crossed ...

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't see how Houston can win this game.

    They can't stop OKC from scoring from 3PT land.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well they can't stop the refs either...So they're doomed.

      Delete
    2. I can't believe how they let Sefolosha got 6 3PTers

      Delete
    3. They figured Durant is the bigger threat...Well didn't OKC do the same thing against them last game?

      Delete
    4. Cuz Haren was guarding Sef most of the time.

      Delete
    5. I bet the refs are being paid to up the point spread

      Delete
  65. Rockets bench has more coaches than players

    ReplyDelete
  66. Why is Lin still on 8 assists? Didn't he have an assist when he passed to Greg Smith for a dunk?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lin really needs to try to finish with his left hand. He's still doing that awkward turnaround right hook that almost always misses.
    It's like he has no faith in his left.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Man, OKC 3TOs helped Houston to get within 5!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Refs bailing Westbrook out...at the expense of Lin of course.

    ReplyDelete
  70. WOW THIS GAME IS GETTING EXCITING HARDEN GOOOO!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. You see Lin was clapping at Harden to give it up. He didn't give it up to Lin. He gave it up to Delfino who passed it to Lin for a 3. Bang!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Lin for 3!!!!!!!!! 114-113
    Cold-blooded threee

    ReplyDelete
  73. psalm... you have your faith back?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ha I read the 3 on here and I see it on the PC like 40 seconds later. You guys are spoilers!

    ReplyDelete
  75. This would be an EPIC win...

    ...I'm worried about the refs, though.

    ...watch them call another BS foul on Lin to bail Westbrook or Durant out.

    ReplyDelete
  76. 1:12 left ... close it out boyz!

    ReplyDelete
  77. HOLY COW THIS IS ONE FOR THE HARDWOOD CLASSIC

    ReplyDelete
  78. No foul call for Delfino and Refs are attempting one last BS call before the game is over. 30 seconds left.

    ReplyDelete
  79. We got it if they hack-a Lin or Harden!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I saw the stats and can't watch the game, I can only say "WOW".

    ReplyDelete
  81. BEST LINSANITY GAME EVER???

    Considering the reffing and opponent? Yeah.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Replies
    1. I can't believe they let Brooks take a 3.

      And, shouldn't Lin get 3 free throws?

      Delete
  83. Westbrook got 7 TO's and 25 points this game.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Oh man JLin didn't make that 3/4 court shot :(

    That'd be highlight time!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Lin's on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. HAHA - they are playing catch now :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Ok, 6.7 sec, harden at line, ,1 in!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Ooh...I wanted that 30pt game.

    Haha! Great win...if Harden just hits ONE FT.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Harden finally got his revenge on OKC after three tries. Congrats to James and Lin was there to help him too. He should buy Lin dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Glad I joined you illustrious fans!
