    1. Yes, his D got a lot better.

      He no longer jumped on his man when baited.

  11. The reffing has not been obviously biased for LA.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. that's because Utah lost already, so LA's in the playoffs. Now had Utah won... oh man, the officiating would have been so lopsided!

      Delete
    2. Yes not yet. Very surprised. Perhaps because lakers clinxhed already?

      Delete
    3. yeah i thought of that too. but OKC versus Spurs is huge difference.

      but i dont think anyone expects LA to make it out of first round. it's enough to just usher them into the playoffs.

      Delete
    4. They made play off so not much need to do it for seeding

      Delete
  12. D'Antoni is waiting for Lin. Hope they get their reunion one day. Lin could dominate with current Lakers crew

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If the Lakers get swept in the playoffs by OKC ... D'Antoni will be out of a job this summer.

    2. Lin needs to play for JVG!!!

    3. As honor guest of cause using texts to motivate their players.

  13. Good sign that Harden is not too aggressive this quarter yet.

    Let Lin do his thing to spread the wealth!

    4. The irony is Kobe got Secretariat treatment and he doesn't look so good now.

      Delete
  16. Smith and Asik are going to wear Howard down if Lin can give a little bit more help.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Stupid McHale always take Lin out when he is playing good.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's what makes him really stupid aside from many other things

      Delete
  18. Seriously, why do they keep feeding it down low for Greg Smith ? ... he's not a post up player.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hes acceptable. but he screws up if he has to take more than 2 dribbles.

      Delete
  19. Harden throwing tough passes to Asik. Didn't he learn not to do that? He should just ask Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  20. McHale: Oh no! Jeremy is getting hot again, better bench him... *timeout - done!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Jeremy made Harden look passive so Bev got to audition now.

      Delete
  21. Bev with the dumb foul leading to Blake FTs. Free points.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Harden is carrying. Lin is cold. This is crunch time and McHale's job is not to coddle Lin. He either performs or he doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What the fuck are you talking about? Lin was having a great third quarter until he inexplicably got yanked with 4 1/2 mins left in the third. What game were you watching? Lin being coddled? He's being disrespected you moron!

      Delete
  23. there's one play I saw Jeremy twisted his wrist in the 1st half...hope it isn't severe...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Harden going ISO and jacking up 3's in the absence of Lin. Hope you're happy McFail.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think we'll see a bev Lin backcourt to start the 4th

    ReplyDelete
  26. Harden traveled on a dunk? wow. facepalm.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I hope McHale start Lin at the fourth.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Harden is leading the team
    in turnovers.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Travelling on a dunk.. like.. stay in school, kids. dun do drugs..

    ReplyDelete
  30. Rockets have Lakers in the penalty with 4 fouls ... yet they keep jacking up 3's instead of driving the lane.

    ReplyDelete
  31. MDT: who is this BEV guy playing so many min and Lin always first out, what's going on?

    ReplyDelete
  32. if mchale keeps this up ....they might lose this game..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He keeps going to small ball in crunch time ... he wants to lose.

      Delete
  33. Delfino put in again as a PF to match up against the much bigger, stronger Jamison ... More McFailin' at work with the small ball.

    ReplyDelete
  34. First time that Asik committed more fouls than Smith.
    Smith is doing quite well!!
    He's a great bargain that the Lakers envy.

    ReplyDelete
  35. The Lakers managed to keep the game close.
    Watch out fella!

    ReplyDelete
  36. its business....jeremy lin can not be better than harden....the gm gave harden 80 mil..if it turns out that lin is better for the team...morey will look real stupid...so they have to do what they are doing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Harden getting stuffed now. Put Lin back in. He was heating up

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Harden can't stop the superstar Darius Morris from scoring, making him look like Kobe now.

      Delete
  38. JVG is the most knowledgeable commentator. He said that Beverley needs to know the shot clock and situation, JVG doesn't just blindly adore his hyper energy and effort.

    1. Yeah, I'm liking his comments. Very nice to hear a BBIQ guy.

  39. Parsons got a nice spin-dribble move on Blake

    ReplyDelete
  40. Are you kidding Parsons is circus movin' ... not bad.

    ReplyDelete
  41. When was the last time that harden ISO has worked. Enough is enough!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Harden putting Parsons in a position to fail at the end of the clock. Just like he does to Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Let me pass to you with 1 second left! Try not to get blocked!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm afraid with Lin out of the game, this quarter will be Lakers

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. McFail will keep Lin out until the last 2 minutes when the lead is gone.

      Delete
    2. Seems that you're right reading McFail's mind like a book

      Delete
  45. Come on... Bring Lin back to start the fourth..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If Harden rested for 4 min while Lin plays, Houston will be back up by 10 pts.

      Same thing happened in the Suns game.

      Delete
  46. McHale will let the 8 pt lead evaporate, then put Lin back in too late, too cold.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies

    1. McHale does not believe in the hot hand.

      it is so sad. we deluded ones were thinking he might change his ways for such an important game. but, no, rest Lin who isn't even tired.

      Delete
  47. Mcjail..will let lin start at 4th..
    Maybe with bev hogden and lin together..

  49. Harden negates all the scoring he does by playing horrendous defense.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Mcgail! Put Lin back before lead disappear! Or eat crow!!!

  51. Ever since Lin was out, the Lakers outscored the Rox

    1. you'd think they can avoid the same patter every game.

  52. God Harden is so fucking bad, no way he's all star in my book, not even close.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I hope McHale start Lin in the 4th without Parsons and Harden but I doubt it. :-(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nope, Beverly ... McFail trying to prove to Morey that Rockets can win without Lin.

      Delete
  54. God what's this infatuation of harden by McHale?!! Harden fucking sucks!!! He's even more selfish than Carmelo Anthony and sucks the life out of his teammates who I think genuinely hate him but can't say shit because this ugly jackass has carte Blanche by his coaches and management to do whatever the fuck he wants. Meanwhile Lin continues to be treated like horseshit!! Why is Patrick Beverly playing such significant minutes. He sucks!!! He's such a non-factor!! McHale needs to be strung up by his balls!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I've been wrong on all predictions tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Parsons-led offense again to start the 4th.

    Let the McHalexperiment begin again.

    ReplyDelete
  57. besides the beard, parsons is featured in this game too.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lin should be playing with the 2nd unit instead of Parsons. You would think that a potential COTY would know that.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Harden will come back before lin

    ReplyDelete
  60. Again Parsons and Beverley. Haha. McHale so predictable.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I predict the 5pt lead will disappear to 2pt lead by Lakers with 6 min left.

    Only then Lin and Harden go back in.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Same thing happened in the Suns game with 4:52 left

  62. Did I mention that I really really detest McHale?!

    ReplyDelete
  63. LOL! Delfino defending Pau Gasol ... McHale is officially the worst low basketball IQ coach in the NBA.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Why do i now have this feeling rockets will lose this game?maybe it's time for lin to be back on the court

    ReplyDelete
  65. The pace of the game is in Lakers favour.
    McHale doen't even know that.

    ReplyDelete
  66. All starters have 30 mins or more. Lin has 23. WTF.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Let Lin the closer finish this thing off

    ReplyDelete
  68. U 'd think McHale learned his lesson last game about leaving the second unit in the fourth too long.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Gotta feature Parsons on national TV to give him love for MIP?

    ReplyDelete
  70. All Houston broadcasters gushing over Parsons like love-sick puppies :( seriously try giving Lin the same minutes and he will do much, much better without the hair-gel!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ok Bev energizer ball causes team to lose sense of game flow again, and now they are within what? 5? Time for Lin.

    ReplyDelete
  72. The lead is dwindling McHale. It is time for Lin, don't be a moron.

    1. BP came in, Houston 7 pts lead, now down to 4 pts lead.

      McHale, what do you think?

  73. eff McHale! Where is Jeremy? White trash Lin hater!Good, watch them loose.4 pt lead and Bev fouled! Let Parson play an other 40 min and blow out the other calf.

    ReplyDelete
