great great win!!
Houston buries Golden State 140-109, hitting 23 3-pointers to tie NBA record
Ah couldn't watch the game tonight. 28 pts and 9 dimes? Was Lin going linsane or what? Can't wait for the long highlights for tonight's game.
Dime mag: JLin No-look pass
I CAN'T SLEEP NOW BECAUSE THE GAME WAS TOO EXCITING. JLin was limping. Heat is a tough team. I hope they bench JLin. Rest, my son.
Really proud of Lin! Can't wait for highlights.

[Oops, forgot to mention, longer highlights downthread.]
Wow, great win! 5 3s for Lin. But he got bloody nose again,and bodies all flying and falling, it was kind of scary!It seems Lin always had good game against his former team,I loved to see the high lead early in the game, otherwise, my heart can't bear the pressure!
Harden is always cordial enough to limit his ISOs whenever Rox are playing one of Lin's former teams.
That is nice of him! I am scared of thinking about tomorrow's game. I will pray!
great to see jlin had a great game against his former team who cut him. I think no body expected it to turn out like this.
Yeah! He has a habit of annihilating his former teams. :)
One more stop on the "Linsanity Revenge Tour" -- Miami. Will Jeremy cross the Heat off his list?It's a second day of a back-to-back on a sore ankle against a rested Heat team. So I'm not expecting another amazing performance. Then again, I wasn't expecting one tonight either.He was just so confident in that jumper tonight! And more importantly, he was entrusted to run the offense by McHale and his teammates. Harden still got plenty of touches, buckets and assists, but he played in the flow of the offense. It was a beautiful sight!
His ankle, his ankle...
Haha he was on fire!
gotta be careful with his anke. He was limping pretty bad after the technical foul.
CP on LBJ? Doesn't bode well.
Seriously who can defend LBJ?
Send him some poisoned sausage?
It's not just LeBron vs. Parsons, mano a mano.The whole team, particularly Lin and his deadly help defense, will cover Lebron. If I were the Houston coach, I wouldn't hesitate to guard Lebron with Lin if the game gets close.
Of course LBJ can be double teamed. But, this leaves a shooter, ie Ray, open at all times.

longer JLin highlights vs GSW - 2/5/13
seems like incorrectly linked? its the same video as the previous shorter highlight. here are 6:33 long highlights. [HD] 2013.02.05 火箭 vs 勇士 Jeremy Lin 林書豪 28分 9助攻 Rockets Warriors (by footwearfoot)Source: youtube.com
Aha @wilc, you saved the day! Yeah, that's the one I was TRYING [lol] to link! [So the effects of less-sleep...]
Got your back. Happens to the best of us, right? ;)
Good to know! [You've saved my links a couple of times now haha.] :)
Lol, in a previous life, one of my jobs was QA.
It seems that Jeremy Lin is picking up momentum as we get close to the 2nd half of the season. Hopefully McHale will trust Lin the way he trusted Lowry and Dragic. Lin's more than earned the right to be trusted.
ABSOLUTELY, @KH :)[I hope McHale will see with the proper perspective -> vs Miami.]
Hope that momentum lasts for the rest of the season.
Once again, Lin earned his respect, but won't be the last time he needs to do it. He's a real fighter, very proud of Lin.
Coach Jackson: "We’re not going to lay down. If you’re going to try to get the record, we’re going to stop it...We didn’t play particularly well, but that doesn’t mean lay down and surrender. That’s not in our DNA."
That's just Jackson. He's a hard nose kinda coach and the same when he was a player.
Chandler Parsons:"I don't think we did anything wrong...I think they let the crowd get to their head a little bit, and fouled Patrick hard."Patrick Beverley: "It's all right. It's basketball. I don't really know what to say. I've never been in a situation like this before."
Yeah, I thought if the crowd kept quiet perhaps the Roxs could have taken more 3s and broken the record w/out the Warriors noticing it. Doh, oh well.
There's going to be drama, moving forward...
Patrick Patterson @pdpattYou disrespect us.. We will disrespect you.. Simple as that. #family #rednation #houstonrockets8:35 PM - 5 Feb 13
Yeah, bad blood! Let the rivalry begin--just hope DLee won't take Jlin out the next time he attacks the rim like Chandler did in NY.
It will be interesting what the GSW game plan when the Rockets visit them on Tuesday.Hopefully, MJackson got distracted by the "slight" on 3PT barrage that he forgot Lin and Asik (10pts/15rebs) were really unstoppable tonight. The Warriors made 8-0 run when Asik and Lin sat in 3Q. Kudos to Harden to only taking 11 shots and letting Lin shine. Time to let Harden shine tomorrow!It's crazy how Lin can be so dominating when his 3PTs are falling! He'll be unstoppable soon when he's a consistent 3PT shooter.
True that psalm234.
why don't you do everything to stop the lead instead to stop from the record? very classy though. in sarcastic tone. Anyway, I guess lin didn't expect to humiliate his hometown team like this.
Uh-oh... GSW has Jeremy's pal DLee. How will they handle a bitter rivalry?
I agree psalm234. Next year will be a great year for us Jeremy Lin fans. I completely expect Lin to work on that 3 non stop during summer. If he can hit consistently the three it will open the game not just for him but for everyone!
Maybe Jeremy Lin did the "Bill Russell" and SOFTENED UP David Lee and Stephen Curry before the game. When Wilt Chamberlain would come to Boston, Bill Russell always took him out to eat. They'd have a good time, and then Russell would jump all over Chamberlain on the court.
Daniel M @KnicknamesJeremy Lin shot better from the three point line than Curry? What in the world is happening tonight? And why was I asleep for all of it?Bart Lewis @bartlewisYes this is Jeremy Lin. Yes I'm in the locker room! Thank youKeith Jones and @patrickkrpc
Only if JLin can be more consistent with the 3 pt shot from here on out, he'll be super good.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvkXmMcGfLooff topic here, who is the other asian dude on the opposite team against Maverick?
looks like Sun Yue. Sun Yue played for Lakers
this is from a Lakers forum I hang out:The broker in charge of the Chinese basketball player Sun Yun's transfer to the NBA has denied the completion of any contract between the player and the Los Angeles Lakers.In an interview with website sina.com, Keith Glass confirmed that negotiations between the Lakers and Sun's current owner, the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) side Aoshen, are still underway.The Lakers' training camp will open in early October, before which the contract talks will be concluded, Glass said.An ESPN TV network columnist, Henry Abbott, published an article on Tuesday, in which Sun was featured in a list of 12 rookies, all of whom were reported to have signed contracts with the Lakers.Sun had been granted a one-year rookie contract worth about 420 thousand dollars but without a guarantee, according to the Abbott's report.However, as displayed on the club's website, Sun remains with an unsigned label, the same as that of Spaniard Marc Gasol.Sun, a Chinese national team player, was picked by the Lakers 48th in this June's draft.
Yes, that was Sun Yue. Isabel, what you posted was before he played for the Lakers and signed a year after he was drafted. He actually had a similar deal like Lin, since he was a 2nd round pick it was a 2-year deal with a team option for the second. He won a championship in 2009 with the Lakers since he was on the roster (but wasn't active) and that summer the Lakers wanted to evaluate Sun in the summer league, but apparently the Chinese national team refused to release him so the Lakers eventually just waived him instead of picking up the 2nd year option.In 2010, he originally played for the Wizards Summer league but eventually transferred to the Bucks team. Sun Yue doesn't even currently play in the Chinese Basketball Association because his Chinese team (Aoshen Olympians) is banned from that league because of their owner. That's why if you watched this past summer's Olympics, you can tell Sun hasn't really improved since playing in the NBA probably because he hasn't gotten the chance to play better competition on a daily basis.
The Lin haters are in hiding.
Jeremy Lin helps Rockets tie NBA record to top Warriors
Marcus Thompson @gswscribeJeremy Lin said Rockets "meant no disrespect." Said before GSW started intentionally fouling, command was given not to take another shot
Ok, so McHale give the command to not take another shot. Good for him.
That opens up a can of other worms. It's the players that were disobedient? Then, where were the benching?
Yeah, there's some inconsistencies there.
nice jeremy performance !
I posted this previously, but I'll post it again.Everyone go and vote for Rockets vs. Warriors for NBA fan night: http://www.nba.com/nbatv/fannight/Right now, in the lead is Heat vs. Trailblazers, but Rockets vs. Warriors is my preference.

Jeremy Lin @JLin7Great team win tonight! Sooo weird playing against the team i grew up rootin for...will always have so much love for the #BayAreaaa
what a smart tweet to soften up GSW's plan to be physical with the Rockets next week :D
it is weird. but too bad they cut you! Or else it will be too damn good to play for the team you growing up rooting for.
He should wear protective gear when he plays there nexst time... just to be on the safe side :) The fans will be on his side but the coach is a nutcase...
The Warriors cut Lin last season, and then they cut him again this game.
Maybe it's me being a GSW fan but I think Lin has to wear protective gear when playing every team except GSW.
Didn't get to watch the game live. Must catch up on game some time later. It sounds like an exciting game. High fives all around Linners!
Don't play the drinking game while watching, @wilc ~Hardwood Paroxysm @HPbasketballI feel like we all need to rewatch this Rockets-Warriors game later and then play a drinking game.... wait, no, we'd all die.6:35 PM - 5 Feb 13
High fives all around! Do the wave :D
Lol, from the sounds of it, I'll die after the first quarter.
High five, up top, down low!
waaaaveeee, y'all Linners!!! :D #LinningTime
Speaking of drinking games, I was performing at the same Fairmont Princess resort where the Phoenix Golf Open was played this Saturday. The valet parking guys were going to charge me $25 for parking, but I gave them a big frown and they let me go since I wasn't there for golf and was working. As I walked by the valets, they told me that 40 people had been arrested at the Fairmont Princess by 10 AM that morning for public intoxication! The valets were stunned that people would sign up to go to the Phoenix Open but then get so drunk that they'd spend the entire weekend in JAIL instead of actually watching the tournament!
Khuang: What does that have to do with drinking games? People were drinking before watching a game?
This weekend, guys were going nuts in the stands getting arrested doing worse things than just having drinking games. The police themselves couldn't believe what was happening, according to the valets.
Wow wow wow!!! Great Jlin game! Kid was the best on the court. I was worried after I saw that pic of him red-faced with Steph Curry but Lin knew what he was doing. Absolutely torched Curry tonight. I guess this is what they are talking about when they say Lin may be unguardable if he shoots the 3.
Shout out to Bob C who was saying just shoot the shots and that's all for now.
when a guy can drill 5 3's in a game and i believe another 4 threes in another game (SAS), i'd say he already knows how to shoot the 3 (as opposed to a PG like Rondo in his first full season as a starter couple of seasons as a starter). but yeah, i get what you mean...JLin will be a beast when he can knock down the 3 all consistently. i think he'll get there after some practice during the All-Star break.perhaps he didn't get as much to drink as his flush suggested. the Asian flush...i get it too after getting only a sniff of alcohol (more realistically, maybe after a couple sips of beer)!
So Delfino has his sausages and Lin has his vino.
You know, about the "Asian flush", once I watched a Discovery documentary on why Asians are prone to be red-faced after drinking a little alcohol. It turns out that alcohol is basically poison but Westerners developed more immunity since the 17th century. Back then the Thames river was so polluted, they 'purified' the water by making alcoholic drink. In Asia, they did it differently by boiling water and drinking tea. So these alcohol immunity was passed by generations in the West.So Asians have some ways to go not to get the Asian flush by drinking alcohol over generations :D
Yeah, lets get Jlin a couple more shots of vodka!
"...i get it too after getting only a sniff of alcohol (more realistically, maybe after a couple sips of beer)!"~ I get it, horribly. [So now I just pretend to drink. Or lots of lots of ice haha.]
I've given up on drinking.I prefer dancing more.
Didnt get to see the game so will have to catch on replay. I believe JL has the ability to shoot but his game predicated on his pg movements to set up the shot. This type of shooters tend to use their transition step to load the leg on jump shots. This is why it's hard to make the adjustment to be a post up shooter. Off a post up, there is very little forward/ lateral movements to push off from. This is a lower brain trigger point that begins a set of bodily moving parts to activate the shot. I still believe he can do it and should continue to learn to do it. It just takes reps.Let's hope he can keep improving and focus on his shooting. No one talks about hardin's poor defense or TOs because he lights up the board.Maybe his weakened ankle force Lin to focus more on his shot instead of driving hard and cutting to the hoop.
Great game and great performance by Lin. Could it be he can become a good 3 point shooter when he gets more touches? Maybe he just didn't get touches to feel comfortable shooting before. Some of his shots today had good rotation. Please don't go back down to below 10 points after this game.
Agree. Lin did a lot of dribbling and gained his momentum before he started draining 3s.
Hope JLin can keep up the great shooting.
If he makes one out of first two shots, he plays confidently. But he did get a lot of touches today and made Asik look good.
Please, no more below 10 points per game unless getting 10 assists. Rockets need Lin's score if they are to make it to playoff.
Agree!However - JLin seems to make his shooting dependent on the game plan and wether he is "feeling it" or not. Weve seen it all havent we? When he is being tripple teamed he deflects. When his shooting isnt there he tries to go to the basket. When hes feeling it -> he shoots. When he has the choice he takes the extra 0.5 seconds to pass to the guy with higher percentage.Thats what I call intelligence. This way he doesnt chuck of shots to become a burden (on bad shooting day). JLin is smart. Thats my point. Its all about maximizing team effienciency. Hes not just a great player. If he decides so he could even be a great coach one day.
And there is one guy on CF who made the right call months ago. He said: "When JLin makes his 3s the game is basicly over"
Yah the coaching were pretty lame to limit Lin's arsenal.
NBA three-point record: Rockets tie Magic's single-game mark
"If Mark Jackson wants old school; Ol Kevin McHale can start ordering clotheslines....I don't think they want THAT problem."
Holy crap, I remember that!
McHale should have gone over to the Warriors bench and done that to Jackson. :D
Dave T, LOL.
David vickers @Dreamchaser845Jeremy lin should of stayed on the knicks though even tho we doing good without him but still
Who's David Vickers? LOL, whatever.
some Knick fan venting his frustration
I just want to take some time and clarify a couple of things. Lately I have had people calling me a troll, not really a Lin fan, McHale's wife among other things.Just so that everyone is clear. I am a Lin fan. I watch every single game I can. I have been following Lin since last year in NY when Linsanity happened. I had never really enjoyed basketball until I saw him play. I remember hurrying up a Sunday after church to catch the Knicks and Lakers game. It was the most entertaining, amazing basketball game I had ever watch. Then I found out he was a Christian and that made me a fan. You see, to me Lin was extremely fun to watch but if his character was the same as most the other NBA players I wouldn't be following him. So, yes I am a Lin fan. Maybe not the biggest Lin fan but I am one.One thing about me is that I call things as I see them. I don't hold grudges against people and I forgive and forget easily. If you did something in the past but don't do it now I have no right in pointing out your past flaws. So it seems that because that's how I see things people have misinterpreted some of my recent comments.I was the guys who made that Bobcats analysis post. And I was not afraid to point out the mistreatment that Lin received in that game and was receiving in other games. I was called out by Jason from the Rockets news staff and trust me it wasn't positive. However, like I said, I forgive and forget quickly and I don't dwell in people's past mistakes but on what they are doing in the present. So do I think that Lin is being mistreated RIGHT NOW by the coaching staff of the Rockets? No I don't. Do I believe that they HAVE mistreated Lin in the past? Absolutely! Do I believe that they will do in the future? I hope not and I doubt it. Do I like McHale as the coach? Absolutely not. I don't think that McHale has the capability of leading a team like this one to win a championship. He would be good for a team like the bobcats maybe. Do I hate McHale? No, I try not to hate people. Are McHales substitution pattern good? Not at all. Still needs improvement but it's better than before.So, I hope that I clarified a couple of things. And I will ask anyone to give me one thing that I have said that is not true or that in ANY way makes me a troll or a Lin hater or anything like that.Sidenote: Like I predicted Lin had a pretty good game. I spent yesterday night watching every single highlight of Linsanity and I was just excited for tonights game and I knew he was going to do really good. Like I have said before. Lin will have a really good second half of this season. I still believe that he can get 14-18 ppg, 7-9 apg, a couple of rebound and steals per game too while shooting over 40%. I wasn't able to watch tonights game but looking forward to seeing the highlights :D
@jp2123, maybe I missed something but I didn't think you were a troll or McHale defender at all. I too gave the benefit of the doubt on how the Rockets were using and their leash was really short but it's getting longer because they're finding out that they need to trust Lin more and more in order to get big wins.Watch the game and trust me it's a Linsanity game :D
Ur grade for ur paper is "A". Well done.
You're just fine, jp2123. The troll comment on the other thread wasn't directed at you. It was directed at ME by jlin74ever who was flaming me unprovoked along with John Ly over some ridiculous China comment. These trolls just cannot stop flaming Lin's fans here, especially using racial taunts. I sympathize with you totally. You're handling things well.
You're no troll jp2123. And for your efforts, Blaiyan's highlights.50 Rockets vs Warriors Lin + Team Highlights 2 5 2013 (by Blaiyan)"Source: youtube.com

Lol thanks guys, def watching the highlights. I knew it was going to be a good game, mad that I missed it thought :(.
Ain't nothing right about your racial slurs, Etane.
haha, @via. The Harvard monocle :DIt can also pass as a sniper periscope!Good find!
Khuang: I never make racial slurs. And, I love that Asian gangster triad hand gesture Lin makes after draining his shots.
I agree with you about Lin's SHOWBOATING, Etane. It's what Lin needs to be doing to be successful in the NBA.
@jp: I called you McHales wife - to make a point. Thats called sarcasm. Some people however dont have a sense of humor. Some people even take it as an insult when other poeple disagree with them.You were defending McHale in ways that I (and many many others) couldnt understand. You made claims and when people disagreed you kept stating how wrong it was to disagree with you (which is in itself no argument for nothing). At one point you made a threat - you said that you wouldnt come here anymore. Now - thats childish behavior - which is why I called you a little girl also.Instead of defending your argument (which would be the right thing to do) you kept creating new posts. In one case - you simply reposted your old post (500 words plus or so). When a new site came up you again created a new post with the same old bad arguments and you wouldnt allow criticism - again. Why wouldnt you just agree to disagree? You acted like your posts/opinion were untouchable.Heres my opinion:-Everyone is entitled to voice their opinion-That means you can voice your opinion-That ALSO means that people can voice their opinion even if you dont like it-Make your statement and no one will call you anything-Call out people (what you did) and people will engage in a debate with you.-Make threaths, keep changing your opinion, keep creating new posts about the same matter and people will call you a troll-If you cant stand the heat - stay out of the kitchenAgain:You started a post calling out to everyone. You claimed that they were wrong and that they shouldnt hate on McHale. By that you didnt just voice your opinion - you started a debate! You simply should not start a debate if you dont like to be in a debate.You didnt really reply to peoples posts. You kept stating how upset you were that people didnt share your opinion and you started 3-4 new posts within minutes. On top of that - you threatened to never post here again. You ran out of agruments - you didnt have much of an argument to beginn with.Now - I dont understand your "forget about past mistake" argument and I dont get what that has anything to do with your being called a troll either.You describe yourself as a saint, claiming that you dont give a shit about peoples past mistake and you are calling them out at the same time. You didnt call them out back then to bring this to and end - you waited a week to do so. No - you are not a saint - you havent forgotten anything and Im calling you out.IMHO -> its not all about you. If you cant stand criticism - dont criticise other people. Dont force your opinion upon others. Dont call them out for calling you out and dont complain about it a week later.
With that being said -> keep posting!
Houston Rockets 140, Golden State Warriors 109 – “One more three!”
NBC Sports: The Houston Rockets tie the NBA record for most 3-pointers, blow past Golden State
Rockets show that the trey is chic
If I were Warriors owner Joe Lacob, I'd be pretty mad right now. Lacob handpicked Lin to be his backup point guard, but GM Larry Riley and Coach Keith Smart overrode Lacob and got the nonperforming Acie Law to play minutes over Lin. Then Riley and Mark Jackson cut Lin, leaving him to be cut by the Rockets and then picked up by the Knicks. Last summer, the Warriors could have signed Lin. But they refused. They never even bothered offering a contract to Lin. That's on Joe Lacob. Now Lin does his COACH KILLAH thing on the Warriors organization. Joe Lacob must be shaking his head, watching his formerly handpicked guy destroy his team.
It seems unintentionally embarrassing. I was hoping a win, it becomes a record-tie, record breaking game
I doubt that they'll able to see it. For whatever reason they cut Lin, it have nothing to do with basketball. And Curry is a "safe" pick anyway, NBA already scripted him as "future star"Things will truly change for good when Lin win MVP and NBA Champ. If you want to change the game, you will have to win the last game of the series
You know what I can't stand even more KHuang?Warrior fans defending Mark Jackson and talking about how Rox played a dishonorable game.Yeah hackathons, chopping Lin in the nose, slamming Beverley to the ground by the neck, those are honorable things to do when you are losing.Mark Jackson got PUNKED today. P U N K E D!!!Makes me happy. Sorry KHuang I'm stealing your trademark term today, its just so befitting.And wow, did Curry get destroyed by Lin today or what?
Steal and steal away, Kenoshi! It was a big PUNKATHON by Lin to the franchise that rejected him. At least Utah had class. They got beat even worse than the Rockets did, but they lost graciously without resorting to dirty tactics like the Warriors did today. Linstructor administered a major beating today.
KHuang, Curry played bad today but Lin wasn't ever going to start over Curry. THe Warriors looked at Lin as a backup when they signed him originally. The only way Lin got an offer from the Warriors was if Curry's ankle was injured so bad. Otherwise, the Warriors wouldn't have offered Curry a 4 year contract. So if Lin doesn't start, what are the Warriors going to offer Lin? Lin would have chosen the Rockets for the money anyway.
I'd start Lin at the 1 and have Curry be the 2. Seems to suit their natural abilities.
If the Warriors have no problems getting destroyed even worst defensively, then they certainly would start Curry at the 2.
Then, Lin and Curry can switch it up on defense?
Marcus Thompson @gswscribeJudging by David Lee's tongue-biting postgame, he just might give the Rockets 30 and 20. "Next Tuesday I guess is when we play them next."
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_FeigenTwo things are certain. Rockets game next week against Warriors and next month against Jazz are much more interesting.
David @DHYLNP@clutchfans If Sammy was still on the Rockets tonight, he would have made some 3s.

For someone who complained about people who suggested that Lin play for the Lakers backing up Nash, why in the world would Golden State offer Lin a contract last summer? They already had Stephen Curry and unless they had cap space and were willing to give Lin a poison pill contract, NY would have probably matched any other offer.
Anonymous, why are you so scared of naming names here?I'M that "someone who complained about people who suggested that Lin play for the Lakers backing up Nash". How do YOU know that the Knicks "would have matched any offer" when the Knicks LET LIN WALK?And Stephen Curry is often injured, plus Lin is a known crowd favorite who had a stellar season in New York. Why wouldn't Lin be an excellent choice as a backup point guard for the Warriors?
Knicks would have matched any offer without a poison pill. They wanted Lin, but as cheap as possible. I don't think they ever imagined that a team would make an offer like Houston did.
But the Knicks matched NOTHING, Roberlin. There's no "would have" with the Knicks.
I know it was you, I thought the reply was going to your original post but it didn't.What we do know that they LET LIN WALK after the Rockets apparently upped their offer to the $15 MILLION after the third year. Even the Rockets thought the KNICKS were going to match. Lin is a known crowd favorite to mostly the Asian fans but not all Warriors fans. Again, for someone who thinks Lin would get blamed for playing off the bench for the Lakers, the same would happen to Lin because he would have gotten PAID and played for the Warriors.Stephen Curry is also going to get his extension very soon, no reason for them to offer Lin a contract that they would think be matched. They also Jarrett Jack. Lin's deal with the Rockets was better anyways since they had cap space to offer him the poison pill deal and he had a sure starting spot coming in.
The Knicks didn't match the ROCKETS deal which contained that POISON PILL in the third year. They only had the right to match ONE deal, which is whatever deal Lin would have signed. You seem to fail to realize the luxury tax penalties that the Knicks were facing in that particular deal Lin got from Houston. The Warriors deal would not have been similar, since they did not have cap space like Houston did.
I also noticed that Lin is not flopping his legs on his jumpers.
Yah he always does that weird quad jump kick when he's cold.
True, even in his Linsanity games against the Lakers and Dallas last year, all his jumpers were straight up and balanced. I guess it's something that he needs to develop to get used to shooting in rhythm without kicking or pedaling back.
JLin post game vs GSW - 2/5/13
McHale post interview@02:23 It is amazing how McHale always managed to dodge a question about Lin having good game and shut down Curry. Seriously I'm amazed he have no problem Harden is fantastic this Harden is fantastic that but so hard for him to give great at least lip service compliment
Yes, I noticed that.
yeah, i saw that. smh
Saw a pic where Mchale happily gave harden a high five on the hand, and harden with no expression on the face. And people post that because they wonder why didn't Mchale gave Lin that kind of high five.
Yeah, I noticed that too.
Don't worry, Les Alexander is keeping score.
I can hear the reporter sigh after McHell finished his first sentence.
A few things:- REALLY LIKED HARDENS GAME TODAY. Not only was he unselfish, he was actually defending. I think he is really getting into the leadership role, he is purposely letting Lin shine today, way to look out for his bro. He was actually looking to pass first esp to Lin today.- DMo pulled that obvious McHale taught move at the post, and he can shoot. Plz play him more!- Anderson came up big and complimented Harden great today.- Asik dunked today, nuff said :D- Linsanity showed up today :)- Ball movement, nuff said!- Beverley showboating esp with that tomahawk dunk ala Harden...Hahaha I actually don't mind seeing more of that.- TD was hot today, lots of energy and hustle and moar 3s!- Parsons was awesome, as always when LIN IS IN CHARGE.- Morris, props man, standing up for Beverley. Team chemistry in motion!
Kenoshi certainly there were lotta positive tonight, BUT :I agree that Harden played really well today in terms of hitting 3 bomb and playing unselfishly which VERY HUGE contribution. But to say he was actually defending? I don't know man. He tried to guard Klay Thompson, failed. Tried to guard Harrison Barns, failed. Tried to guard Jarred Jack, catastrophically failed. Even though he didn't spent so much energy on offense as he used to, I'm surprised that he still unable to spend at least some amount that energy left more on defense, maybe he just doesn't have the knack or the coaches just don't care/You brought a good point about Morris standing up for Beverly, which makes me wonder where were Lin's teammates every time when Lin repeatedly got fouled hard? Where were the teammates? Where were the coaches? You do realize that Beverly is the 3rd string point guard who just joined the team last month and yet the team is more protective to him than to Lin? I maybe wrong, maybe it was just the heat of the moment, hopefully, I honestly don't know for sure
yep .. not bad for a one hit wonder !
Trade Steve Nash and future 1st round draft pick for Jeremy Lin....:-) Jeremy needs a big stage.
Yes, Lin will need a big stage for his SHOWBOATING RETALIATION when Kobe Bryant blames Lin for everything that goes wrong with the Lakers. There is this: Nash is struggling as a corner off the ball spot up shooter in D'Antoni's offense. Lin would definitely be an improvement over Steve Nash, since Kobe Bryant is now D'antoni's main point guard.
Yes, a bigger stage - but, he needs to go back home to the NYK. Felton and JR Smith for Lin and Smith.
Robert, we all know Lin left his heart in San Francisco. NY was but a stepping stone. = D
Thanks God and Mama Mary for an answered prayer.....:-)
Unbelievable game. The first half was the best offense play I think I've ever seen in the NBA, because it was beautiful team play, with assists on nearly every basket. Very few contested shots, excellent ball movement, no ballstopping, few turnovers, balanced scoring - and the result is 77 points in the first half. WOW.If Harden stops his isoballstopping play and plays within the flow of the offense with Lin running the point, this team's offense is going to be a juggernaut this second half.
