    1. One of these days players will go to McHale and say: "Coach - we are trying to win!"

    2. Lin to McHell: But your hair dye job is distracting me! You look like you're a 7ft Paul McCartney!

      Delete
  7. Would it be so difficult to have some faith in your investment and play him for extended minutes McHale?

  8. Lin getting inside. Now just needs to make those easy 5 footers.

  9. Lin almost got burned by Udrih's 3

  10. Harden looks like he can jump but can't land without hurting.

  11. Lin...you are horrid sometimes.

  16. KHuang your man Nicholson with 4 fouls playin' as you said.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ordinarily I'd be rooting for Nicholson.

      But since this is a Jeremy Lin board, I say FOUL OUT THE ROOKIE.

      Joeteam, I swear to you that Nicholson is not actually THIS good. He needs to be defended.

  17. great footwork, was that because of the new shoes? :)

  20. So, when is Lin going to come back in the 4th?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Omg Lin is still in still Lin!

    ReplyDelete
  22. They just gave the assist to Parson instead of Lin when Harden made the layup

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am kind of desensitized to the score keepers stupidity.

      Delete
    2. I thought Parsons had the assist. Am I missing something?

      Delete
    3. Lin got the rebound and football pass it to Harden for a layup, but Parson got the rebound and assist. Maybe I am confusing the two, but I am certain it was Lin that got the rebound and pass it to Harden.

      Delete
    4. Parson was credited with the rebound and assist, when it should have been Lin. Lin got screw by everybody from his coach, to his GM, to fans, refs, to scorekeeper.

    1. Haha looks like Sac pulled a fast one on us.

      TRob has been horrible.

    Replies
    1. I love how optimistic you are :)

      Delete
    2. Agree! If the next Q4 run after Lin gets back doesn't get us a spread. Crunch time problems, as we all know. Yikes!

      Delete
    3. Thanks to McHale putting Robinson in when the game was so close.
      Up 4 and now down 1.

      *sigh*

      Delete
    4. Sorry willydilly. My hate for HOU fans has gotten the worst of me.

    5. I just had a starwars flashback.

  28. The rockets will win this game if Lin comes back in beginning of 4th

    1. Lottery ... 9 or 6 mins when Lin returns?

      Delete
    2. With 6 min left in 5th my giess

      Delete
    3. LOL. Parsons went to the locker room and Bev hasn't done much tonight, so Lin should be in before the 6 min mark. If Parsons comes back from the locker room, then I agree with Kenoshi.

      Delete
    4. Parsons back in the game, so Lin will be back at the 6 min mark.

      Delete
  29. Terrible 3Q

    Looks bleak imo.

    Wow we are making Magic look good, this is sad.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This gimmicky offense gives lower tier teams a chance to win. This is why it's so unpredictable. We need to have a more structured offense!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Offense or defense? I don't think our offense gives lower tier teams a chance to win. Our defense do.

      Delete
    2. The ball's not moving, the players aren't moving. The Magic's been much more active than we have.

      Delete
    3. Offense too much to run back and forth. Chaos on offense leads to overall bad defense.

      Delete
  31. This game should be close at all. I'm actually getting worried about the Rockets. And how come McHale doesn't put Garcia in the game. He can defend and is a vet. He can't hurt us more than what we hurt ourselves already. Seriously... I don't understand. Rockets start off amazingly and then they vanish for the rest of the game. I prefer how it was before. Super slow start, and then we came back and actually won the games.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They missed Morris' and PPat's 3PT threat but tried to replace it with TRob's offensive rebounding and DMo's 3s

      Delete
  32. scared that this might be another loss :(

    ReplyDelete
  33. T Rob getting too much respect. Isn't Greg smith available?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lol, this game is going down the drain fast.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow harden in ISo mode. Not good

    ReplyDelete
  36. DMo nice save.

    Harden airball lol.

  37. Rockets sign Aaron Brooks. I wonder who is going to the D-League tomorrow? And how that will affect Lin's minutes.

    1. LIke I said, we'll be lucky if Lin cracks 30 minutes. bank on it.

  38. Alright McHale let's get Lin in NOW..

  39. Wow how do you mess up that layup Delfino?

    4pts behind now.

  40. Finally someone knows how to take a charge.

  42. Shit Beverley hit a three ... Lin is not coming back for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow someone play some defense plz.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lin is not playing on the 4th

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hello, I have reading this blog for sometimes and enjoyed it very much. I do not understand Jeremy score. Fg=3/6,3 pt=2/2, FT=3/4. But he only has 11 pts. How does the calculation go? Will someone kindly explain?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. FG includes 3PT FG attempt.

      So 2x3PT + 1x2PT + 3FT = 6 + 2 + 3 = 11

      Delete
    2. Jeremy made 3 shots, 2 of which are 3 pointers, so two 3 pointers is 6 points, and he made one other shot that was a 2 pointer: 6+2=8 points. Then he made 3 out of 4 free throws, which are each 1 point. 8+3=11 points.

      Delete
  46. Nice knock by bev for a steal.

    ReplyDelete
  47. let's go magic. Fire mcHale and his sidekick Sampson.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Lin getting treated like the scrub McHale thinks he is..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. of course, why would we expect anything different?!

      Delete
    2. Everyone is deferring to James this game.

      Looks like he is demanding to dominate the ball today, and it is really hurting the Rockets tonight.

      Hope the Rockets still win, but if they lose, I put this on on Harden.

      Delete
  49. Why did Beverly pad Parsons on the back of his head?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hes trying to create visual chemistry.

      Beverely does try really hard and is a great teammate though.

      Delete
    2. So Stu, your thoughts on Lin tonight?

      Delete
    3. They already hand-checked. You dont touch a guys head when you are the new guy. It should be the other way around.

      Delete
    4. at least they didn't pat the touche.

      Delete
    5. @ k.smith - missed the entire first half. But, looks like Lin needs to play longer when he is hot (again McHales fault).

      Lin is a dynamic player. His resume when the ball in his hands speaks for itself.

      3rd quarter he did ok, just missed some shots.

      Delete
  50. Looks like Lin will play the last 4 minutes and get the blame.

    ReplyDelete
  51. why am i rooting for this team?? LOL to myself.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well well to be fair bev is earning his minutes.. Jeremy needs to elevate his game

    ReplyDelete
  53. Mchale's rockets game plan for the 4th qtr. Get Harden the ball so he can get his 26-30 its.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Is that Robinson a scrub? Can't even dribble the ball twice.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Jeremy now knows how Lowry felt last year.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Nice knock again by Bev, Harden couldn't run lol...Thank goodness it became shot clock violation.

    Bev is playing good, how much y'all wanna bet McHale going to overplay Bev?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you guys need to stop with the bev nut hugging. He's not doing anything Lin cant do.

      Delete
    2. No the bottom line is bev is doing it Lin is not. If Rox win this game, there will be calls to start bev over Lin...

      Delete
  57. Who is Tobias Harris?

    Why is he at 20 points?

    Who's covering him?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well when u have the confidence if the coaches like bev does things flow much better.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I see the pattern here, Rockets are going to lose this game.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Lol wow Magic looks like a top 10 team when they play Rockets.

    Sad.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Les must have loved Lin so much like his wine collection.

    The more rest Lin has on the bench, the better it tastes in many years.

    Longevity, baby!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Let's go rockets. Keep chucking 3s.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Bev knows that he will get more minutes if he plays well. Lin not so much...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it doesn't make any fucking sense though. Lin's the better player, the fucking starter!!!!!!!!!!!! The starter's minutes shouldn't be dependent on how well or poorly his fucking back up plays.

      Unless...they don't really view Lin as a legitimate starter.

      Delete
    2. Lin will get less minutes if he scores over 20.

      Delete
  64. Replies
    1. He might not even come back if Bev keeps killing it.

      Delete
    2. I'm lowering it to 0.

      Even announcers are saying it.

      Delete
  65. Lin needs come in and be aggressive like Beverley.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think he is coming back in.

  66. why Jeremy's mins is decreasing while Parson's increasing!
    don't get it!

    ReplyDelete
  67. This is just embarrassing.... And we want to go to the playoffs playing like this?

    ReplyDelete
  68. I hate 3Ball only system.

    Who last made 2PT jumper? PPat?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Beverly is playing good ,Lin might not come back in.

    ReplyDelete
  70. time to bench McHale and Sampson - forever

    ReplyDelete
  71. WHY IS BEVERLY STILL IN THE GAME!!!!!!!????? ARE YOU KIDDING ME MCHALE!!!!!!!!!!!?

    ReplyDelete
  72. With Aaron brook now, Jeremy's days on this team is numbered.

    1. Sadly I agree. Brooks will probably start a few games.

      Delete
  73. Wow even Harden not getting calls.

    ReplyDelete
  74. was lin running pnr with asik?

    ReplyDelete
  75. when Lin plays well, it always get sub out, but if Beverly/Douglas plays well, McHale leaves them in.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, Jeremys been fighting obstacles his entire life and will continue to have to do so. The fans love him though and thats not something any player can have.

      Lin is already more popular than McHale ever was

      Delete
  76. Pretty sure Beverley will finish the game...he's hitting his shots.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Beverly on fire. Oh well. No Lin in the 4th. Lin always gets snubbed from 4th quarters on Fridays. Anyone notice this?

    ReplyDelete
  78. Lin might come back in...you know, to relieve the starters and play scrub minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Lin's game has slowed ever since Mchale made that comment about Lin. Clearly shows that Mchale don't like Lin in his game plan.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Haha McHale's logic = Let's keep the less effective players and those who play no D (cough Harden and Parsons) on the court all the time and let them play through the mistakes. But keep the more effective players (Lin) rest.

    Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Lin's confidence soaring.. This team doesn't deserve Jeremy at least not the way he is used. I'm sure les and McHale are regretting getting him.

    ReplyDelete
  82. You got to be kidding me. I don't care what anyone says. Lin was playing really well. Great defense. And he is getting benched because of Beverly!!!!???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Cause he committed a TO, I called it.

      Delete
  83. Wow, seriously? Very frustrating to watch.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Lord have mercy on our souls

    ReplyDelete
  85. For some reason every (well almost) Rocket game feels like a nightmare... when LIN gets hot, McHale takes him out... then in for a bit... then out again... and the worst part is the heart-stopper 4th Q cause I don't know whether LIN would be played... at all!



    ReplyDelete
  86. The way Beverly's playing, I can't blame Mchale for keeping him in for more of a stretch in *this* 4th quarter.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He always starts the 4th though...so if he plays well, he stays. WTF are you talking about?

      Delete
    2. But be fair about it. Even if Lin plays well, McHale will find away to sit him. There will be discussions about what Lin's worth is after this game.

      Delete
    3. Just what I said. Usually Lin gets back in during the 4th. He may not this quarter or it may happen very late. Calm down.

      Delete
    4. What about the way Lin played in the 1st qtr? That deserve to be subbed out? Mchale has done this in every game when Lin gets hot.

      Delete
    5. your minutes shouldn't depend on how well or poorly your back up plays.

      Delete
    6. if you're a legit starter/piece of the team, you come back in regardless, especially when the game is close.

      Delete
  87. The sad thing is HOU has Lin's bird rights. If he doesn't fit/improve, they can ship him to a shitty team like they did Ppat/Morris/TD.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Parsons and Harden getting heavy minutes again. Mchale's pets.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. they always get heavy minutes. they're the two core players on the team.

  89. U guys don't think coach has nothing to do with Lin's play? They have pulverized Lin's confidence.

    Replies
    1. We all know that. Nobody likes McHale here.

      Delete
  90. Everyone is deferring to Harden this whole game.

    He looks like he is demanding to dominate the ball and offense is getting sticky.

    Lin's role right now is nothing more than dribbling up the court and passing to Harden, so at least for this game, I have no problem with him sitting rest of the game.

    If Rockets lose, Harden was a big reason why (still hope they win, though)

    ReplyDelete
  91. McHale doesn't like Asian. That's all! I hope rockets lose this game.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Beverly playong really well. He is fearless and making big shots.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Jeremy is not going to play the rest of the game n rox gonna lose

    ReplyDelete
  94. Bev is playing all-around well so it's hard to sub him in.
    I would sub Delfino for Lin. Small line-up.

    Delfino is ineffective.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But a 3PT threat so *sigh* Lin can count his money on the bench.

      Delete
  95. Thanks. I only started to watch basketball because of Jeremy

    ReplyDelete
  96. The fridge has gotten colder since the hair dye job....

    ReplyDelete
  97. I think Mchale is playing a dangerous game. If they lose, he will feel heat for not playing Lin.

    I hope Lin one day actually learns to monopolize the ball to score and assist and make plays to establish himself as a hot commodity if the Rockets don't want him. Mchale nor anyone in the NBA culture respects team players, unless the selfless team player is head and shoulders above his peers, like Lebron.

    I respect Lin and his game, but he is not on a team where anyone cares about his selflessness. I think he gets it but its not in his NBA to play selfishly. Sadly, these benchings will become permanent soon if he doesn't do something about it.

    Of course Mchale is a calculating smart snake oil salesman. He is benching Lin against one of the worst teams in the league, knowing this cements his authority to bench Lin to win games and go with his style of play / Beverly.

    I actually hope ORL wins because Mchale will take some heat for it.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Ok, not fun ... see y'all in post game. Scotty out!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Guys nothing has changed about McHale's attitude toward Lin. Lin will be treated like a scrub. Nothing will ever change that. Lin is going to regress on this team.
