    1. It's okay to swear if pain is involved.

    1. no joke, seriously. how heck can you air ball in the nba? It's not a one time thing, he's done it more than a couple times...

      Delete
  5. Wow Lin is out at 6min mark missing all those shots and drawing a foul on wall.

    This is going to suck I don't think Beverley can take Wall.

    1. you think he should have gone out?

      Delete
    2. Beverly was already at the scorer's table before the foul. Mchale yanked the leash on Lin pretty damn quick.

      Delete
  6. Omg! 0/3 Lin can't be like that.

  7. He looked tired going to bench. He didnt look right

    1. is he still sick? he looked slow/lazy yesterday and tonight.

      Delete
    2. He got tired legs already, thus the airball.

      he can use some ginseng tonight.

      Delete
    3. He needs better conditioning. He looks really tired in the 2nd of back to back games.

      Delete
    4. It's all them mcchickens..

      Delete
    5. we're more than halfway through the season, EVERYBODY'S TIRED.

      LIN MUST FIND A WAY.

      Delete
    6. Lin needs to copy Nash's paleo diet to not eat processed sugar so his body recovers faster.

      And reduce them chicken wings.

      Delete
  8. its gonna be a long game...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Jeremy falling in love with the jumper. :-/

    He's gotta attack the basket...third game in four days...the legs are tired.

    I don't mind him jacking 3s with fresh legs (good for confidence), though.

    ReplyDelete
  10. i like bev's energy but i don't like him as a pg. there's too much chaos, no rhythm. it's messy.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Parsons single handedly keeping them in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lol Beverley is learning about Wall's wingspan first hand.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow how was that a blocking foul on Delfino, garbage...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I feel like no one in the Rockets team know how to take charges except Lin

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When John Wall runs over a defender, it's a block. But when Lin or Harden run into someone ... it's always a charge call.

      Delete
    2. Wall is getting Kobe calls lol :D

      Delete
    3. Kobe calls in LA...Except he's in DC...

      Delete
  15. Interesting, DMo and Smith in at same time.

    Smith looks lost...DMo nice oreb.

    ReplyDelete
  16. hope i'm wrong but it might be one those nights where, lin only gets to enter the game if his back up completely craps the bed...

    That's not how you treat your alleged pg of the future/guy you build around (moray's words).

    ReplyDelete

    1. McHale benched him for taking too many shots.

      Beverley is just passing the ball, he'll get to play half of first and half of 2nd. Watch.

      Delete
    2. I don't mind McHale benching him.

      1) Jeremy should've attacked the rim (esp. on the last 3).

      2) Third game in four days and Jeremy's fighting a cold.

      Delete
    3. harden's 1-5 though...taken more shots than Lin.

      Delete
    4. A cold doesn't make someone slow down by that much. I hope it's not another injury.

      Delete
    5. a cold? a freaking cold? give me a break. maybe the flu but a freaking cold? no.

      Delfino had a foul and only made one shot but he stayed in the game...

      Lin goes out sooner bc his play affects harden. Lin's position is easily covered by Harden. That's why he sits out longer stretches than any other starter (left on this team).

      Delete
    6. You guys are nuts.

      You all act like you've never been sick in your lives.

      Delete
  17. Lol smith is worse than Howard at FTs.

    ReplyDelete
  18. harden's been killing it from the 3.

    ReplyDelete
  19. DMo tips a ball off rebound to Bev and he travels under the basket lol

    ReplyDelete
  20. Anderson 3

    Rox killing them on perimeter, except for Lin, bricked 2 treys and long 2 airball :/

    ReplyDelete
  21. And bev sinks a 3.

    32 - 20 lmao will Lin see playtime in 2nd?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lin only came back bc parsons came back.

      Remember...it's not lin or harden on the court at all times, it's parsons or harden on the court at all times.

      Delete
  22. Do I here people cheering every time Rockets make a bucket? Seriously, it's like Rockets now have fans everywhere they go. I guess Lin and Harden are too likeable.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We should do an over/under every game's 2nd quarter when Lin will enter the game. This game, over under the 9 minute mark. I say UNDER!

    ReplyDelete
  24. It seems like McHale is gonna bench Lin like before those games.

    ReplyDelete
  25. c'mon lin, you know the haters are gonna blame you for losing the lead...even though you got scrub anderson open looks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. stop passing to anderson. you kept doing it at the end of the heat game too.

      Delete
  26. wow lin on and the rockets are losing it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it's just more calm when he plays...that's what the pg is suppose to do.

      Delete
  27. Wow what happened did wiz go on a 8-0 drive?

    ReplyDelete
  28. And the lead stretches out...

    I must say its not because of Lin atm tho.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. he got a couple assists and he's getting into the paint/drawing defenders in...but it's because delfino/parsons are hot.

      Delete
    2. Makes up for the 100000 assists they've blown on missed layups.

      Delete
  29. Jeremy going for the Rondo game!

    6 dimes in 11 minutes!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Still no point yet but 6 assists

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow Lin cannot make anything today.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. he was shitty yesterday too.

      pisses me off bc i know he can be better.

      something better be wrong with him...

      Delete
  32. Replies
    1. Hehe, to be fair even Harden started 1-5. And Jeremy missed 4-5 in a row during the OKC game, I think.

      Just defend and win, baby. Also, get 10 assists tonight.

      Delete
  33. LOL, Jeremy isn't anywhere close on his jumpers.

    Come on, man -- attack the basket!

    Great passing though. And only 1 TO. Rondo game tonight.

  37. Something it's not right.... Don't ask me what... But there is something weird in the team right now. Arguing and stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  38. john wall looks like a total scrub on offense until bev comes in.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lin forgot how to play basketball today.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. His jumpshot is much better at Houston home games, because he has more time to practice his shooting touch.

      He doesn't have much chance to practice his shooting on the road. And he loses his touch almost immediately.

      Delete
  40. Well Lin needs to make those easy shot. What's wrong with him? I also need those fantasy points. Common Lin :( You are so much better.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Lin's gonna play less than 30 min.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He will play about 20 minutes today. He is showing no energy while he is in.

  42. They're gunna foul smith all night lol

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lin is making it easy for Mchale to bench him.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lin will come back strong in the second half.

    ReplyDelete
  45. They need DMo back on to get the offensive rebounds

    ReplyDelete
  46. parsons fumbling the ball to harden...yeah, nothing new here.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Lol get smith out already he's being outplayed

    ReplyDelete
  48. never realized how big wall was.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Mchale contesting the call for his favorite pet Parsons. When Lin gets stupid calls on him, Mchale just seats and pretend nothing happen.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Beverley having a good game.

    3/3 9pts all treys 3 assists

    Lin anyone home?

    ReplyDelete

    1. bev's been great at getting his own and to be fair, he's got 3 assists too.

      Delete
    2. sure glad Beverley played well.

      you think Lin is still affected with the cold?
      not looking very sharp out there.

      Delete
  51. I thought McHale didn't care about Lin's points. Apparently, Lin's assists mean nothing, either.

    McHale is a liar. He will use any excuse whatsoever to make sure we know he doesn't think Lin is anything special.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. McHale will just say:

      "Lin we're trying to win games"

      Yep agreed liar.

      Delete
    2. idk ... I think he knew Lin is not himself out there so he'll try to give him plenty of rest for the 2nd half. He put Lin back in 2Q but Lin couldn't get going yet.

      Let's see if McHale plays him in the last 5 min of 4Q if the game is still pretty close.

      Delete
  52. if lin doesn't score tonight...it's gonna be a long couple days of anti-lin bitching...they don't play again until W.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The starter is not shooting well except parson, rite?
    Hope Lin will adjust it as I just start watching the game.

    ReplyDelete
  54. There is nothing wrong with Lin. He just doesn't own his shot. His mechanics are bad. He will always go through cold spells when his confidence is down, until he fixes his mechanics. You can see him practice his shot at every dead ball. He doesn't believe in it.

    Nevertheless, the offense looks great when he's out on the court. McHale pinning the blame on him for Washington's spurt is sick. McHale is such an idiot. He benches Lin for scoring too much. He benches him for scoring too little.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There are times when he just hits tho MT...But he goes through a dry spell like you said.

      Some of his old footages show correct form then he reverts to this...Why is that?

      Delete
    2. why hell does he do that? sometimes his form looks great and then other times it looks like this.

      Delete
    3. If Lin gets defended hard, he doesn't have time to THINK.

      When Lin gets his feet set and does his shot form, it misses (and badly too).

      When Lin just lets it fly because defenses are hounding him, he reverts to his old shot form and the ball goes IN!

      Delete
    4. Come on guys. Even a Kobe can miss 10 in a row.

      Somehow I cant loose the feeling that McHale is messing with Lin on purpose.

      Delete
    5. The old form make him feel comfortable, but I do not think it is a way to go in the long run.

      Delete
    6. @Willy I am not panicing just because some shoot slump. I pointed it out very early b4. We all know there are so many good shooter with weird form out there in NBA. lol

      Just hoping he can improve more.

      Delete
    7. He missed all 4 wide open looks though KHuang.

      Delete
    8. I'm thinking Lin's just a bit fatigued, couldn't penetrate yet, and he struggled with his shots tonight but amazingly he can still distribute the ball with well-timed passes tonight.

      Did you see how Delfino missed a 3 after DMo bobbled the ball before passing it to Delfino? Then Delfino easily made the three when Lin passed him the ball.

      I'll be interested to see how Lin will score to break out of his slump in the 2nd half.

      Delete
  55. Although, i believe he is just sick, his shooting mechanics really need some adjustment. Hopefully, thats his plan in this summer.
