    1. McHell is too chicken to get on tiger mom's bad side. He will behave with her in the crowd.

      Thanks for letting us (me) know she's in attendance.

  4. Dmo blows one of Lin's assists too.

    1. It keeps happening early. They need to pay attention better.

    2. D-Mo another missed hook shot. No assist for Lin - again!

  5. Announcer: Jeremy Lin has to get back on D (after GSW got a fast break off a long rebound)

    1. Stupid Rockets announcer. Apparently, it's in style for those Houstonites to say it.



      Delete
  6. Lin's mom sitting behind the bench. She will get to see first hand how jerk and incompetent McHell is. No in-game adjustments or real strategies. Just bakr about TO or the ball being "sticky" or not playing D after telling them to stay clear of Harden.

  7. anybody has the game link? thanks!!

  8. Second team is in. Every starter on bench except Harden. Would be interesting to see Lin in with the second team instead of Harden for once.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You know McHale never allows Lin to run the team without Harden.

      Delete
  9. Wow, ugly game so far on both sides...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Damn, they look terrible on transition D

    ReplyDelete
  11. Delfino driving to the basket again... 1 sign the coach has lost control of the team.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Announcer: WillyDilly is on the rim and blocked TRobinson's dunk.

    ReplyDelete
  13. LOL Lin back in for Trob after he violates the shot clock.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Morey like that scrub Robinson ? Haha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He needs to rewrite his advanced stats formulas.

      Delete
  15. Robinson looks like he's never played basketball in his life.

    He makes mistakes I've never seen anyone make before...hmm.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For example, that's the second time he's "blocked himself" on a dunk attempt.

      Delete
    2. Robinson makes a slam dunk look as difficult as a contested 3-pointer.

      Delete
  16. I think the coach had to many st. patricks day beers! Puts Lin back in to play the last 12 seconds of the 1st?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's the only good news, ha. And Curry and Thompson seem to be ice-cold as well.

      Maybe they all went drinking last night? The effort is there...they're just not hitting anything. And losing the 50/50 balls.

      Delete
    2. Now Lin's back out! Yikes. Not sure what's going on.

      Delete
    3. hi willy/etane, I just started watching now.

      Why's Rockets offense so impotent? Did Lin play as the PG?

      Delete
    4. Under different circumstances I wouldnt even ask but does that mean that Lin starts the 2nd???

      Delete
    5. @psalm:

      Im not sure. I was also late. However - coach put Lin back in the game with 12 seconds lef tin 1st. I tought he could start 2nd but -> nope :) hahahahahha

      Delete
    6. Psalm, Dmo and Asik can't finish. Parson and Harden looks like they are suffering from muscle fatigue. TRob is drunk. Lin got some no call fouls.

      Delete
    7. Willy, think McHell just wanted to punish Trob by taking him out after his shot clock violation. Should've put TimO in instead of Lin though.

      Delete
    8. Thanks, willy and etane. This will be interesting on how the Rockets responded. It doesn't look like Harden-led offense is leading the comeback.

      Delete
    9. Need to tattoo "The team moves as Lin moves" onto Harden's forehead. (his own quote)

      Delete
    10. that would certainly help :)

      Delete
    11. How would he read it during the game?

      Delete
    12. Others will read it to him... "hey why you got that Lin team thing tattooed on your head?"

      Delete
  17. Coach mchale will always be in my mind an idiot coach I hate for Jlin

    ReplyDelete
  18. Replies
    1. I honestly think they're drunk for St. Patrick's Day...lol.

      Seriously, the effort is there...they just can't hit ANYTHING.

      Delete
    2. Well it looks like Lin won't be getting any calls tonight.

      Delete
  19. Haha Lin played for 12 secs. I have no idea .

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha ! McHale 's favorite player Beverly shot an air ball.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay let Lin back in before we lose this game

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beverley can't do anything. We need Lin

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha Beverly is looking so bad .lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. How many 0 point game should Beverley have before McHale stopped playing him so many minutes? Serious question.

    And let this guy Parsons lead the team instead of Lin when Harden is not playing, smh.

    ReplyDelete
  25. god I do not like Bev's gaME AT ALL, HOW DID HE GET INTO THE nba

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, this is a guy who is supposed to be a better shooter, better defender than Lin, according to die hard Rockets fans like that Clutchfans owner anyway.

      Delete
  26. McHell's tried and true strategy. Lose by 20pts by the half then turn Linsanity loose in the second half.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Warriors are shooting just as bad -- they're just getting offensive boards.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank god but we are one curry on fire away from losing this game in the second quarter.

      Delete
    2. It's happening...no help defense after Jeremy gets screened out by a hard pick.

      At least McHale called a proper timeout there.

      Delete
  28. This is what happens when you wait for the game to 'come to you'. Idiot mchale

  31. One word to describe the first quarter.... LOL. I mean seriously. But I got a solution. GIVE THE BALL TO LIN, Let him control the offense. And you will see magic happen.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Only McFail would be dumb enough to put in Delfino at the power forward. For a hall of famer bigman ... he doesn't seem to believe in rebounding.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My take is the run and gun style is Morey's idea.

      Delete
  33. Lins foot was one the line. I'll admit that

    ReplyDelete
  34. Harden needs to stop dribbling up the ball, and the Rox are not giving any screens for JLin like the Warriors are doing for Curry right now.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Rox players are just executing coach's play...which is to leave Lin fight on his own..

      Delete
  35. Out of everyone though, d-mo's offensive woes sticks out like a sore thumb.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You mean he's been hitting all his shots?

      Delete
    2. there are no defined roles still on this team. players like Dmo should be given green to keep shooting

      Delete
    3. Everyone on this team is a shootguard except Omer.

      Delete
    4. After Morey traded away Patterson and Morris, D-Mo is the only PF on the team.

      Delete
  36. So Michael is gonna get mad now and yell and take no responsibility as usual. Give Lin the ball for heavens sake

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great, now they're just running Lin off the hard picks and no Rocket knows how to help on Curry. There is just no teamwork on Defense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Parson is the only person to rotate with Lin on PnR defense but Parson looks off today.

      Delete
    2. But u know they will blame Lin

      Delete
  38. Is Brooks still with the team? Why don't idiot play him?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lol Lin is only one person, he can't guard 2 PGs in Jack and Curry at that same time. His teammates need to at least put the hands up to contest shots damn.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin is helping JH to learn his the other half of $80M for defense...

      Delete
  40. Oh man...D-Mo...

    Just not his night. He's missing EVERYTHING. Can't even get FTs.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Lin keep passing to d-mo and never made an assist.

    ReplyDelete
  42. How can this team come out so flat at home two games in a row..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's McHell's game plan to make a 20pt come back in second half.

      He's a creature of habit.

      Delete
    2. The team strategy is to give the ball to Harden and Lin and make them drive into 3 defenders .... McFail strategy or lack thereof.

      Delete
  43. Asik needs to dunk it u r soooo tall.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lin has 0 assists. He's in the corner Again. I don't understand this back and forth for the life or me. One game he runs the team one game he stands in the corner. The seasons almost over and his role still isn't defined

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I disagree. I think he is involved in the offense. Not getting calls makes u hestitant though

      Delete
  45. What's interesting is that DMo gets more minutes than normal on a night when he shot 0/8 lol? What rotation is this?

    ReplyDelete
  46. another no D from JD translates to a 2 pointers from Thompson

    ReplyDelete
  47. Jeremy fouled for the THIRD time...no call.

    Refs trying to give this to Golden State.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I doubt history could be made two night Ina row, don't see them coming back from this one

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hareden is keeps PGing the damn ball, why Mcfail WHY

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a shame, I hope they loss by 40 so they can wake up! R u kissing me, game of this magnitude, they don't belong

    ReplyDelete
  51. Interesting choice to put Aaron Brook as a shooter replacing Delfino in this small lineup. It hasn't paid off so far.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think it's more than just McHale. No one can make any shots!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My God.

    Curry just RAMMED into Jeremy...no call.

    Refs flat-out cheating tonight.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. NBA fans should learn some chants like "refs are cheating - refs are cheating - refs are cheating"!

      Delete
    2. Refs cheating Lin on both ends...

      Rockets not rotating or helping on defense (except for Lin)...

      Game over unless both of those things change.

      Delete
  54. Wow. Rocks suck. Lin gonna have to go nuts in 2nd half.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Gonna be extremely hard to come back against this team in the second half.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Can someone please explain to me what the heck is going on. I mean two games in a row

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. whats going on? shooting is bad today and Harden is pging the ball tonight not lin

      Delete
    2. McHell responding to Khuang's comment that Houston scores too much but doesn't have a plan on defense. So, he's fixing that.

      Delete
    3. It's poor coaching. Nobody but Jeremy knows how to play help defense. Even Asik is failing (I hear he's banged up to be fair).

      And on offense, McHale sticking to his motion offense even when Jeremy and Harden are the only real scoring threats tonight. He should just be running pick and rolls right now.

      Delete
  57. It's obvious that the Rockets lack a real NBA PF. Nobody respects DMo and TRob.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's hugely important as well.

      An extra big body in the paint to slow Harden and Lin.

      Delete
  58. the Rox are not giving the ball to lin

    ReplyDelete
  59. It's not McHale's fault though that the team is shooting 20%

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is when they keep letting D-Mo and Parsons take shots. Robinson should not even be in the rotation. Jeremy and James pick and roll should be the go-to play right now.

      Also, you can't just PREACH defense. You need to TEACH defense. Only Jeremy knows what he's doing out there. Mark Jackson is smart enough to exploit that.

      Delete
  60. Lin kept passing it to DMO.. who is 0/8.... shitty first half.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Maybe Lins mom is making him nervous

    ReplyDelete
  62. Come on Lin! Give your teammates a pep talk and save the day!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Refs are letting the Rockets get body slammed in the paint. This game was rigged from the tip off ...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Even so, it would be within "Linsanity" distance if Houston could play some damn defense. They have no idea how to defend a simple pick and roll. Jeremy gets screened out...and that's the end of the defense. They just let Jeremy take the blame and give up.

      Delete
  64. IDK guys, but friday's comeback was pretty big. Can Houston pull another one against Warriors? Logically I don't think so, but there is something in me that says they will do it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, but it really says something about McFail's lack of coaching and substitutions that allows this to happen 2 games in a row.

      Delete
  65. uh, what the hell is going on? I just got home, going to start watching game now. Is it even worth it?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Earlier in the season this type of game would depress me for hours. Learnt how to detatch myself

    ReplyDelete
  67. I really think if Lin got those two early fouls called, it would've helped to get this team out if this funk.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree.. but to be fair Warriors aren't getting calls either.. They're just hustling and getting rebounds..Bogut is def causing problems for them.

      Delete
    2. Aaron Brooks got a blatant no-call as well. Lin looked like he got hit in the mouth again, no call. Hope he still has all of his teeth.

    1. At least they're still doing better than the Knicks right now LOL. This team is too soft inside, Asik can't block every shot or stop everyone. D-Mo is being made into a 3-point shooter, when he sucks at that.

  70. Really I don't think it's gsw. The Rox r beating themselves.

    1. Yes but if you watch closely Harden has be pointing the ball 85% of the time, that should never be

  71. I expect a loss but wanna see a much better effort In the second half

    ReplyDelete
  72. There's some life! Win or lose, it's good to see them LEARN.

    Getting some stops...Jeremy hits a 3...forces a TO on Curry.

    D-Mo hits two shots down low...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Lin now a 40% 3pt shooter??

    ReplyDelete
  74. Bad turnover by Jeremy, just lost control of the ball and it bounced to Bogut ... he needs to just go in for the layup. Has he even attempted a layup yet ???

    ReplyDelete
  75. Harden competing with Lin to see who gets more points.

    1. Houston on a roll but hope Harden doesn't kill the groove by going iso.

  76. LINSANITY!!!

    Plus Harden plus defense!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Seriously, how many times does Harden need to run into Bogut for the refs to call a foul. Refs are giving super-love to Bogut tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Did Mama Lin feed Jeremy some sausages during half time?
