  1. Cant believe im staying late for this game which to me has no bearing.but as a true jlin fan, i will support jeremy in this game and expect his best to come out... You go kid

    ReplyDelete
  2. Ok, the announcers already pissed me off. Only mentioning Harden as the one asset on Houston team. NO MENTION of Jeremy, like he doesn't exist. ugh!

    1. Too early to be PO'd. Someone said there is no one better to do PnR than jlin...isn't that positive?

      Delete
    2. No jlin is really an afterthought to a lot of outsiders. If they only knew

      Delete
    3. It is McHale's doing. He has marginalized Lin and raised Harden to stardom. Let's hope they get a "TEAM" win tonight. It is the only way of longevity and to prove the haters wrong.

      Delete
    4. It's a good sign. Lin is going to fire up for the Lakers.
      Lin always plays well against Lakers.
      Expecting him to score a lot today.

  3. Jeff Van Gundy said on espn rockets are favored vs Spurs in first round and non of the analyst predict rockets win, screw them, lets go rockets! Lets go LiN!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I meant predict won against lakers tnite

    ReplyDelete
  5. Prediction.. Bill Simmons saying harden will have 55 points. If harden scores more than 30 points we lose. But I know harden will try to showcase himself and fail miserably.

    ReplyDelete
  6. People just look at the stats.They just don't understand anythings about rockets.

    ReplyDelete
  7. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED : PLAY ALL 82 GAMES AS A STARTER

    ReplyDelete
  8. On a positive note, i would rathet hear neutral (?) announcers give negative comments on lin than houston's very own set of commentators.That, to me is an insult and disrespect

    ReplyDelete
  9. Harden looks nervous that choker

    ReplyDelete
  10. Rockets starting off trading 3s with Lakers.

    ReplyDelete
  11. So far two iso plays for Harden. One where he pops a 3 and the other he drew a shooting foul.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Mchale...are u camera shy? U looked uncomfortable there

    ReplyDelete
  13. Trying to study here but have to come here to complain about that F.. Harden. He doesn't move at all but just stands at the top of the key and kill all flow!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lin with his first assist to Parson for a quick lay up.

    ReplyDelete
  15. So far the fouls calls have been even. LIn with another great wrap around pass to G. Smith for the slam.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lakers so far resorting to shooting alot of 3 pointers. Live and die by the 3.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lin with his first point by shooting the 3.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Etane

    I like how u are containing your emotions...u got to heed to jlinfan#1's request..good job

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lin said something to D-Howard. I wonder what he must have said. Want to come to Houston next year?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Or can I join your team next year since I like Mike better than McSimpleton.

      Delete
    2. Want to be the Big 4 in Houston to beat the Big 3 in Miami?

      Delete
  20. Rocket's twin tower against the formidable Gasol + Howard.
    The Rox doesn't need Howard but Asik is going to have a field day to prove it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lin looking impressive. Houston playing very efficient basketball. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Lin with the nice floater in the lane off of the pick n roll. Jeff said Lin is exceptional at pick n roll and that all PG needs that floater.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin learns this from D'Antoni, the Lakers' coach!
      Maybe Lin should go to LA Lakers.
      Fun is Guaranteed

      Delete
  23. Lin and Harden dominate the Laker's backcourt.
    The Lakers will dominate the front court.
    Now this game is going to be very interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  24. JVG has always given props to Lin. It's nice he's announcing for this game.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. nice. wondering who that was. Jalen said watch out for Lin

      Delete
    2. He can truly appreciate Lin's talent.
      JVG back to coach Houston maybe?

      Delete
  25. Harden must have thought Asik jump like Greg Smith. He threw that lob pass up in the stratosphere.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Two turnovers caused by Harden and McFail favorite son trying to play PG.

      Delete
  26. Alright u morons. Let Lin be the pg

    ReplyDelete
  27. what was Harden's move? Pass to Parsons or a failed floater?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That was the worst alley-oop pass ever.

      Delete
  28. Asik looks nervous trying to post up Howard. He missed with an ugly hook shot. Rockets bigs are getting out rebounded by Dwight and Co.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Parsons thinks he's a PnR specialist. SMH.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Howard's presence inside is making it difficult for Lin to do anything inside.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Houston's only chance of getting rebounds is to foul out Howard. It sure looks like all the balls are being tapped back to open Fakers and Bigs are getting out hustled by Fakers Bigs.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Only TJones's quickness can affect Howard.
      Asik is slow. Man.

      Delete
  32. Parsons, Harden, Lin, all not bothering to guard the perimeter shot. It's a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  33. U think McHale will make some adjustments?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Just don't know when they ever let LIN run offense, getting killed on offensive rebounds

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's pure ridiculous for Chandler Parsons to consider himself a pick and roll ball handler.

    But I bet McHale will take Lin out after this timeout lol.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Bingo, you win a prize lovely lady.

      Delete
  36. Rox including Mcfail and Morey overstate Parsons's ability. Plz let Lin play as the pg just once.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Harden loses his man like his shadow is running away from him... What an ulgy defense....howard reminds me of lin when he plays without harden... Howard shines without the team's superstar

    ReplyDelete
  38. What?????????????

    2 min. and Lin is out?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Rest JLin for the beginning of 2nd quarter.
    Ready for a surprise.
    when Linsanity mode explodes

    ReplyDelete
  40. Harden is telling himself I need to score. I need to shine. The lights in LA are so bright. Jack Nickelson is looking at me. I think I can I think I can.

    ReplyDelete
  41. LOL my internet streaming froze for 10 seconds and Harden is still holding the ball and standing in the same place when the streaming unfroze.

    ReplyDelete
  42. U think we will see bev Lin backcourt to start the 2nd?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lets go Harden. We need everyone to play well. I just want to see Lin finish mostly. He doesn't need big minutes in this game

    ReplyDelete
  44. Replies
    1. how do you screw up a easy fast break like that?

      Delete
    2. harden was looking to score himself, thats why he passed too late on that break -- passed after he decided he couldnt get an easy look himself. the window for the bounce pass was over.

      Delete
    3. This kind of selfish play is being promoted by McSimpleton and McMorey eel.

      Delete
  45. Is Beverley even a PG? He is yet to touch the ball I think in his time of the court lol.

    ReplyDelete
  46. god Harden ball hog so much, i dont care if he makes or not, this is not how you fucking play basketball

    ReplyDelete
  47. Guys please report Harden's Turnovers now!!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Harden got two Toes so far.

      Delete
    2. 2 in the 1st Quarter; extrapolate to 8 for the whole game.

      Delete
    3. Its not just the TO's - its the context.

      Both should have lead to easy buckets and he THREW it away - one on an easy alley-opp and the other on a 2-on-2 fast break.

      Gave up 4 pts.

      Delete
  48. Same predictable play with the ball going to Harden for a final 3 point shot which fails time and time again.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I was wrong. Harden just made the worst ever alley-opp pass.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Tired of watching harden ISO all night man.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Those espn announcers are such Harden homers. They act like he's carrying the team. Of course he scores most points when he gets every possession!

    ReplyDelete
  52. The most predictable quarter ending play for the Rockets: Harden iso, pull up long jumper. Same predictable results: brick. I wonder what the % of Harden's wind down the shot clock pull up J is? I'm going to guess 20%.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Only a blind man will not see how harden is forcing to score and intentionally ignoring the other 4 players...this game will suck if he continues to play like this...this will be a waste of time

    ReplyDelete
  54. Different rotation tonight. No Lin. It's 2nd team with Lin and Harden on the bench.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. forgot the favorite son sitting too.

      Delete
    2. And harden will return before lin

      Delete
    3. A very important game and McSimpleton decides to sit his starters for the 2nd half and ice Lin when he was hot with his shooting. That kind of logic really blows my mind. *sigh*

      Delete
    4. It's UNREAL. The starters are not even tired.

      Delete
    5. It's easy to rest when you are jus twatching harden on most posessions.

      Delete
    6. It's going to be a long and boring day with MCfail's experiments.

      Delete
  55. Beverly is not Lin.
    He's going to mess up those rookies.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Didn't McHale see what Lin did in Phoenix?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. McFail has horses blinders on. He can only see Harden's pube chin.

      Delete
  57. How boring is this? Man, I know everyone there wants to see JLin...

    ReplyDelete
  58. McHale just milking the bench again..

    ReplyDelete
  59. McMorey eel is going to tweet that McFail be voted coach of the century if the Rockets beat the Fakers tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Maybe he is resting then for playoffs..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This has to be the reason why he is sitting all three starters. He cares more about having healthy players than winning this game.

      Delete
  61. hate McFail use Beverly instead of Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Very nice. 2nd unit came to ball.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Does this mean Mcprick is going to reward the second unit by letting them stay on the court?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup, it means reward time for bench.

      Delete
  64. Fakers are not the same without Kobe at the helm. Howard is not a true baller without a PG that can give him the ball and prevent defenders from swarming towards him.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Where's that kid that D'Antoni used who scored and got alot of rebounds the last time the Rockets played the Lakers? D'Antoni was hoping for a similar Linsanity moment last game.

      Delete
    2. Robert Sacre is his name. He is listed on the box score for tonight's game.

      Delete
  65. He benched lin again and again


    Because he maybe play well.like he did last game were everyone's glimpse the linsanity

    He maybe comeback with harden
    So harden will hog the ball again

    ReplyDelete
  66. Must be nice for Bev to get to play his position and get to do it w/o Harden on the court.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When Harden checks in, the ball gets sticky and heavy
      Harden throws bricks.

      Delete
  67. I don't care who score and who play,I just want them to win tonight and play the spurs that they can have a chance to beat them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Why? So we can watch more Harden iso ball and see Lin get benched in the 4th for Bev?

      Delete
    2. Unfortunately, the win will be determined by who plays, how much each plays...the more harden, the more iso, the more likely rockets would lose...the less of lin, the less team bball, the less likely rockets will win

      Delete
  68. How can lin have a great game if can't even play a substantial amt of time? This is retarded!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The fact that everyone is out means he's resting then.. Has to be.

      Delete
    2. keep telling yourself that solidz75 but it's not true. They know how impt this game is.

      Delete
  69. Gosh! He picks up one right away!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I think Lin played very well in his limited minutes. He might only have 2-3 possessions as opposed to like over 10 for Harden and 7-8 for Parsons. But he still managed to score 5 points.

    ReplyDelete
  71. wow, the bench really is playing the Lakers starters.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Bev who cant close out against Blake is still in the game and Lin is on the bench?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Asik is such an offensive liability

    ReplyDelete
  74. ??? Harden is in before Lin is in. WTF?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Are you serious McHale? Put Lin back you idiot, you just saw Blake burn Beverley.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Looks like Stern told the Refs to call fouls in favor of Houston because Fakers already made it in with the Jazz lost to Memphis.

    ReplyDelete
  77. ok... this maybe a non-bearing game but i want my Lin to pad his stats tonight so please mr. genius mchale let the boy play!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Lin back in at 6:23 mark in the 2nd quarter.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Very stupid that JLin is not in the 2nd quarter so far.

    I really just don't understand it other than McHale continues to not trust him... but I can't see why. Lin is playing well.

    ReplyDelete
  80. McFail should put more pressure on the Lakers' Blake and Meeks

    ReplyDelete
  81. Finally, Lin is back. 6:23 of Second quarter

    ReplyDelete
  82. Beverley is hilarious. He acts like he's directing the team and then he's just passing it off to Harden.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Lin ... Glaring weakness shooting!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He sat on the bench for 20 minutes of real time.

      Delete
    2. Baloney. So he missed two threes in a row. Do you ever see harden usually throwing up brick after brick?

      Delete
  84. Lin got cold on the bench.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Yup, Lin comes off the bench cold with two missed shots from 3 point land. What do you expect after sitting for so long.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Exactly. McHale keeps icing his own player.

      Jeremy succeeds DESPITE his coaching.

  86. Lin shot twice, but did not fall.

  87. Replies
    1. in 1st quarter, he was good but Mchale make Lin out right after he failed just one shot.

      Delete
  88. He let Blake score too .. A bad stretch for Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Why is Parsons driving and kicking it out to Lin? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Lin needs confidence but he's lost it since he met Mchale. Mchale doesn't want to make Lin play as PG

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin needs the ball but McHale already gave it to Harden.

      Delete
  91. I like Lin just firing off shots without thinking. They will start to drop

    ReplyDelete
  92. With Howard inside and the 3s are not falling.
    It doesn't look good.
    Defense.
    Press Blake and Meeks for turnovers.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Harden with another bone head alley oop play to Asik. He keeps thinking Asik is G. Smith.

    ReplyDelete
  94. see, Harden's not going to get easy calls in the playoffs (this is a virtual playoff game)

    ReplyDelete
  95. Note to parsons, the less u handle the ball the better it is...

    ReplyDelete
  96. Lin keeps feeding Asik like how you would force feed a little kid who doesn't like to eat his food.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Lin needs to do a better job in Blake

    ReplyDelete
  98. Lin can't get into rhythm playing off the ball. This sucks. Hes SG.

    ReplyDelete
  99. We have absoluley no business losing this game. We should destroy the Lakers with their current roster.

    Lin... man up on Blake!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Lin already has 3 assists in the 1Q and after that Asik slam Lin is still with 3 assists... crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Haha! Lin shot an airball at the corner,too tough there,asik can only catch Lin pass.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Lin should not shoot a corner 3. That's not his spot. He hits it from the wing and straight-ahead. I don't I've every seen him hit from the corner.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lakers last year to seal it when he went for 38.

      Delete
    2. Last year in Linsanity 38 pts on Lakers.
      He hit it at the corner.

      Delete
    3. Lin just needed a pump fake on the corner 3 to get a clean look.

      Delete
    4. I have seen him hit that corner, but not after the freakin' coach let's him get cold on the bench for 10 min!

      Delete
  103. The Rockets almost scored every time off Lin's drive. But of course let's not do it often and let Parsons drive and turn it over lol

    ReplyDelete
  104. Damn. Lin dropping dimes now

    ReplyDelete
  105. Lin has found a hole in the defense.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Harden tried too hard to get a steal(?) got Jeremy into foul! urggh!

  108. Why the fouls harden! Retard!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Did harden really have to shoot a 3? And that early? Can he not pass the ball?

    ReplyDelete
  110. Lin putting on the jets and driving coast to coast and got hit in the face by D-Howard. Lin with a superb play with 1.2 seconds left.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I think Lin is playing okay, some good assists, need to lock down blake in 2nd half

    ReplyDelete
  118. I blame mchale for messing up lin's offensive flow in the 1st qtr. that is effecting him now. Mchale seems to always do it at the right time
