  1. Jeremy's playing well so far in the second half. McHale better bench him now.

  2. Jeremy take that three.. Everyone is missing their threes. U won't be singled out.. Trust me!

    ReplyDelete
  3. JLin looks better second half. Let's get it going Jeremy!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Lin is rhythmic player.
    Follow your rhythm.
    Go man

    ReplyDelete
  5. Jeremy starting good in second half. I thought McHale is a big man's coach? why is DMo shooting 3s instead of playing low post?

    ReplyDelete
  6. love Jeremy, but Beverly should be in for rest of game. Spurs don't have game plan on Beverly and he has it tonight. Other nights when McHale benched him is questionable, but tonight...Beverly

    1. U r a freaking genius! U coach?

    2. Pop made a game plan against Jeremy because he understands that the offense runs the best when Jeremy is on the floor.

    3. While were at it, lets bench Hardin for Anderson. And put in Delfino for Parsons.

      Delete
    4. well you know, the impartial Lin fans will moan about Beverly being in.

      Delete
    5. Lol you really think Beverley's prefect shooting is sustainable?!

      Delete
  7. Beverley will be in soon. I bet McHale think it's Lin fault that Parsons is missing so many 3s. If it's Beverley to pass it to him, he would make for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Lin's doing a very good job on Parker.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Get Parker in Foul trouble
    Go Lin

    ReplyDelete
  10. You don't want Asik get his fourth

    ReplyDelete
  11. Notice Lin just made a spin drive on Parker before he is subbed out?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's because he brought the ball up the court and... *GASP* didn't hand it off! Not allowed!!

      Delete
  12. Jeremy is out. Man, our boy can't win.

    ReplyDelete
  13. McFail did it again. Lin is benched.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Omer needs to dunk everything underneath the basket.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Parker should have had 4 fouls, refs missed an obvious foul on that JLin fast break.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Asik's fourth foul
    I told you
    McFail

    ReplyDelete
  17. If Asik gets his 5th
    McFail should be fired

    ReplyDelete
  18. Beverley is in. If he plays the rest of the way, he will play 17 straight minutes lol.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Parsons commits TO... he will be on bench... oh, forgot, that rule only applies to JLin...

    ReplyDelete
  20. GS on Duncan like white on rice.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jeremy doesn't cut to the basket because the coaches want the PG to camp in the corner. Cutting to the basket would mess up Harden's opportunity to drive. Beverley doesn't cut either.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Good boy Bev. You will be rewarded for the whole 4th Q.

      Delete
  22. Lin isn't trying to shoot the ball at all ... even that spin move on Parker that he got fouled on, he was looking to pass the ball.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Beverley does nothing offensively now but I bet McHale loves his D so he will play him the whole 4th quarter.

    ReplyDelete
  24. If Lin plays the majority of the 4th... I predict he has a big 4th.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Beverley will play the whole 4th.

      Delete
  25. seems like McHale doesn't want to Jeremy to play like he did during that first home game vs Spurs that gave a glimpse of Linsanity in overtime.

    ReplyDelete
  26. When we all think Lin play in fourth? If he will at all? I have no clue! I feel he will get sub out whenever he make a mistake in the fourth

    ReplyDelete
  27. Something wrong with the game plan!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Look, if the Rox win, everything will swept under the rug.. And McHale will be justified. Don't like it but without Jeremy fighting back, nothing will change.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think Mac will put Lin in with around 10 minutes left in 4th.

    ReplyDelete
  30. How did Jeremy totally lose Ginobili for that 3-pointer ??? Seriously, stop staring at the ball man !!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. jlin in at the start of the 4th...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Harden out Lin in with Bev. DO SOMETHING LIN!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Lin's fault for choosing Rockets over Knicks, he won't be treated this way in NY with all those fans support. So don't expect Linsanity in Rockets, the coaching are making sure that it won't happen in Houston.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin didn't choose the Rockets. Knicks never offered Lin a contract.

      Delete
    2. You need to straighten your facts.Jeremy had explained this in the open how he ended up with Houston.In fact, in one interview he said he thought he would be playing for NY this season and if he had a choice, he wants to play for NY fans.

      Delete
  34. Parsons and Harden already played 33 and 31 minutes haha.

    ReplyDelete
  35. wow, Lin and Beverley in together. Beverley running the point. Wow, the writing's on the wall.

    ReplyDelete
  36. jlin and bev in 4th while harden resting...
    jlin with beautiful dish to cutting smith, smith flushes it hard!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Cutters and dunkers are so ideal as teammates for Lin. Let's hope he'll be on such a team someday.

      Delete
  37. 83-76 rockets up 8:59 left in 4th... looks like harden is coming in for jlin...?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, most likely. Harden will be in even the Rockets do well without him. And Beverley gotta plays the whole 4th due to his prefect shooting and D!

      Delete
  38. Look like Lin comes on only when Parker does. So it's just matchups that McHale decides when Lin comes into the game.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lin can hit that shot all day. It's just that when Harden is in, he holds on to the ball too long for Lin to do anything.

    ReplyDelete
  40. jeremy still in... but harden is in for beverly. jeremy with airball or to? regardless it was ugly. then diaw blocked jlin on his drive to the basket

    ReplyDelete
  41. Man, Lin should have taken that shot.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Lin playing well. No more expired shot clocks when he's on the floor.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lin did not get credit for that steal! Anyways he should have went to rim instead of passing to Harden

    ReplyDelete
  44. 3-point shot still looks off. But at least he's being aggressive defensively and forcing turnovers.

    ReplyDelete
  45. 89-85 rox, 5:43 left... parker drives hard and draws a foul on lin

    ReplyDelete
  46. It's a match game; player for player

    ReplyDelete
  47. parker is warming up, another layup against lin.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Damn I bet Lin will be subbed out soon. He missed too many jumpers today.

    ReplyDelete
  49. 89-89, 4:44 left with parker shooting layups or free throws.

    ReplyDelete
  50. man, that Rocket offense is ugly.

    1. McFail already plans on losing the game.

  52. bad offensive sets by rox... beverly in for lin 3:56min left. i think it's over for lin

    ReplyDelete
  53. all that dribbling for that fucking play?

    ReplyDelete
  54. if we lost the game
    It's McFail who did it

    ReplyDelete
  55. what? beverley comes in to close the game?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yeap, Mac doesn't trust Lin for sure. You have to put your starter in this situation. Wow, what a disrespect.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Bull shit! Even come gators are saying Bev excellent defender!

    1. you can't wake up a person who is pretending to be asleep

  58. McHale does not think Lin can guard Parker but thinks Beverley can? What a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think we should all be used to this by now. Why are we surprised? Meh.

    ReplyDelete
  60. The only way Lin can come in is when Bev picked up his fifth foul

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't thinks so, he got to foul out

      Delete
    2. I want to see jeremy playing for a different team next season.IDK which one but he needs to leave this team.I want this team to lose every single game they bench jeremy especially during a crucial last quarter.I hate you MCHELL

  61. Parker just scored on Bev too, just sayin'.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Go spurs! Go spurs! Go spurs!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Lin getting burned by Tony Parker on the drive ... seems to be more worried about Parker's 3-point shot, which is almost nonexistent.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well to be fair .. McHale has sometimes gone without Asik in the 4th. Jeremy just not shooting well tonight... Very indecisive, ugly looking jumpers.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But doesn't excuse McHale for not trusting your starters in the 4th

      Delete
    2. and that's a huge mistake too. Without Asik's rebounding, Rockets give up a ton of rebounds.

      Delete
  65. Parker will take it to that scrub Beverley for sure haha.

    ReplyDelete
  66. oh look, parker just scored on bev again.

    ReplyDelete
  67. He took lin out.
    The whole game fall aparts

    ReplyDelete
  68. At least, Bev made a bood d play.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Beverley missed 2 shots in the 4th already after going prefect before. Unclutch!!

    1. McHale: Bev's blocking shots because he's better than Jeremy defensively

  70. 93-92 sas up with 1:13 left, parker making it happen, rox offense sputtering with or without lin but bev with the blocked shots.

    ReplyDelete
  71. 5th foul of Beverly after a few missed shots poor D.
    McFAil

    ReplyDelete
  72. McFail's last minute has never worked before.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Will Mac put Lin in to finish the game? Hmm . . .

    ReplyDelete
  74. Well this game clearly answered my questions about McHale and how he views Lin - and how far he has come since the beginning of the season.

    Lets just say Lin's recent three game 20 point streak did very little to Lin gaining McHale's trust.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Cuz Mchale originally has never believed Lin ever.

      Delete
    2. i believe youre right. mchale could care less if lin scores 20 20+ points in a row, he just doesnt care for lin's game. he plays him because he has to.

      Delete
    3. It looks that way. It is my impression now that there is nothing Lin can do to gain McHale's trust.

      Bad game or not, u go with your starters, the players u think will make a difference in this situation. Lin is not that guy for McHale.

      Delete
  75. 95-92 sas up with 1:07 left. let's see what our great coach comes up with.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Everybody knows that it's Harden ISO

    ReplyDelete
  77. Parker must be laughing inside.

    "You really think that scrub Beverley can guard me lol!"

    ReplyDelete
  78. McFail goes to Beverly in the last minute of crunch time. I think it really shows how much McFail thinks of Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  79. anybody but Lin is a better compliment to Harden.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I m telling you guys, thus is about Harden crying that he is the "superstar" of the team. He does not like it when Lin has good game. He wants top billing. I am telling you, that is why McHale is yanking Lin,and Harden not passing lin the ball. They know when Lin is allowed to play, he plays well.

      Delete
  80. McHale doesn't give a fuck on this Asian kid.

    ReplyDelete
  81. McHale will put Lin in with 10 seconds left so that technically Lin closed the 4th quarter.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nope, McHale thinks Lin is a piece of crap, so Lin thinks of himself as a piece of crap and passes up open shots to pass the ball and turn it over.

      How else do you explain the jumpshot that he changed his mind to throw to nobody?

      Delete
  82. So bev was brought in to guard ginobli rather than parker? k.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not like Beverley can guard either. It's just McHale's imagination that Beverley is some sort of DPOY stopper.

  83. 95-94 sas up and 09.3 seconds left

    2. lin looked pretty happy to me.

    3. It turned well for the Rockets against the mighty Spurs come on, McHale can stick with this formula aka bench Lin and totally justify it in the future.

  93. I want to see jeremy play for a different team next season. IDK which one but he needs to leave this team. I want houston to lose every game remaining this season when they bench lin especially in the crucial last quarter.I hate you mcHELL

  94. good win over sas, just unfortunate that jlin couldnt participate when it counted but his confidence is shot.

  95. Lol this game will be the game plan for the rest of the season!

    1. So true. Now he thinks he has justification. May as well not watch any more games this season

    1. I agree. As great a player Lin us, he is really an after thought in this team. Never gonna change.

    2. oh please... they have a good starting PG named Patrick Beverley (*?*)

      Delete
  97. this victory reinforces mchales great coaching and game planning.

    ReplyDelete
  98. The substitution of Beverly for Lin is the dumbest thing in the world.
    What did Bev do? Giving up free throws missing two shots.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To be fair, Bev made a huge block. I have no complaint against Bev; he's a decent back-up and plays hard every time.

      Delete
    2. We won.

      And Jeremy played all of fourth quarter till that point.

      Lin's was hot with his shooting, so you ride James.

      This win puts alot of pressure on Golden State to win a game they weren't necessarily expected to win (5 losses for Rockets and 5 losses for Warriors down stretch, before this game, i believe meant Rockets still get sixth seed because of tie breaker).

      Delete
    3. correction: Lin was not hot with his shooting.

      Delete
  99. No Rockets jersey, no NBA League Pass, less interest in NBA if JLin stays with Rockets and McIdiot is still there.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Rockets paying $25 Mill to have their starting PG sit during key moments in 4th. Just have Lin be a back-up, so things will be more honest. Trade Lin at the end of this year if you don't believe in your starter.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Without Lin, it's from 30 points up to 30 points down.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Wow, Beverly might start the next game. Jeremy had the worst point differential (-13) and Beverly had the best (+11). Beverly may have saved the game with the tremendous block from behind near the end.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. that's stupid. to give someone the starting spot because of point differential from one game is asinine.

      Lin just needs to keep doing Lin. He can't change anything except how he plays.

      Delete
    2. That block was impressive, I don't care what people say. A good play is a good play.

      Delete
  103. Whats done is done. It actually a good thing Lin is not finishing the 4th THIS TIME because the refs already cheated Lin. We need this one badly

    ReplyDelete
  104. So sad. How many starters in the NBA don't close out a one point game? Lin must feel embarrassed being a cheerleader.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think Miller finished the game for Lawson yesterday night?!

  105. Lin is not doing good on his jump shot again,very inconsistent.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Isnt the pattern clear? When he plays his role he shoots well. He is not a good spot of shooter we have seen this already. He was forcing it tonight since he knew he wouldnt get the ball again for a while. No player can shoot well in that situation

      Delete
  106. Lin should go to Morey and say - you guts better cut this BS. Your paying me 25 million - start treating me like that type of player. I dont need you using me as a ploy and a publicity stunt. Wow - what a beautiful thought.

    ReplyDelete
  107. For those who want to focus on "respecting your starters," I think your perspective is problematic because that's not how it works.

    Think of this way: You're Mchale and you're making millions of dollars for coaching the Rocket's. Not only that, but you absolutely love what you do. So, what's never going to be on your mind is: "How can I respect my starters and treat them as such?" That perspective is bogus. You're going to constantly ask yourself, "what must I do to get a W, so I can keep my job, continue to make millions, and love my life."

    So, I'm just throwing that out there. The Rocket's won. They got the 'w'. And as far as I'm concerned, any arguments attempted to say Mchale shouldn't have done what he did *this* game turn to dust.

  108. And wait till Rox get a second superstar. Lin will be even more marginalized - if that is at all possible.

  109. With his brilliant strategy to bench Lin for Beverly in his Rockets win, Kevin McHale has proven himself to be one of the greatest coaches in NBA history! /sarcasm off

  112. Well truthfully we all should hope rockets win. As much as I hate the benching, it is easily solvable. Lin just has to play better and consistent. We all know how Lin will be treated so we can only hope he continue to play his ball and being his best, benched or not.

    ReplyDelete
  113. coaches finally found a winning formula in close game = no Jeremy, Bervely+Harden combo!
