ACHIEVMENT UNLOCKED : Played first career playoff game
Jeremy uses Linsanity.McHell defends with bench.Linsanity freezes. Loses 10,000 hps.
Shh...[Fr your lips to no one's ears!]
This is it guys. This is literally the begin of Jeremy Lin's playoff career. I remember last year hoping for Jeremy to make his debut in the playoffs with the Knicks. And tonight, it's finally happening. I can't wait. I know that everyone is saying that we can't win and I'm one of those that thinks we can maybe get to game 5. However, I wouldn't be surprise if Lin goes all Linsanity in the playoffs. I'm expecting a great game. Some of these playoffs games have been worst that in the regular season. I hope that doesn't happen to the Rockets. I say Lin has a 20+ point game and 7+assists. What about you?So it Begins!
Best of luck to J and i have no choice but to wish the entire team the best too! Give it all you got Jeremy! Win or lose, show everyone what you are capable of...
Everyone only talkin' about Harden and mocking Lin. OUTRAGEOUS DISGUSTING 'MURICA
What did they say?
What did they say about Lin?
huh? what'd they say?
guys in TNT studio and around the twitterverse
I think Jeremy will play better on the road than at home.. That is bec the Houston fans adore harden's hero and iso ball and jeremy would probably be deferring a lot to harden while playing homecourt...on the road, this may not be the case...
LOL Barkley in full retard mode...i have a good feeling. it´ll be a Linsane game if the Refs dont pamper Durant to hard and if Harden gets his head out of his ass ;)
Let's Go Rockets! Shut everyone down!!! I'm so excited right now. LINSANITY!!!!
Durante is going to get every call
this is gonna be rough.
I like how quit is is Lin turnsover the ball.
lol Asik and Smith in full retard mode, Lin wont get many touches this quarter-.-
hahahhaaha Harden elevating Lin's play.
Lin looks tentative.. Need to get the jitters out
he better do it fast or else mchale's gonna bench his ass for Bev.
Lin with a wide open miss
They are not playing as a team...
Lin had a good 3 stroke but in and out.
Agreed, good shot by Lin. Those will eventually fall.
oh god smith and asik are sooo bad wtf?!!!
Wonder what McHell is going to say during this TO.
Lin you suck, Bev get out there?
Tell Lin to make wide open 3's
Lin only missed One 3 so far. How many shots has Harden missed? Let's see ... 1,2,3 ..
Omg! This is not gonna be fun lol
Well, this was expected. All these players need to plant themselves in this game since is the first Playoff game for 3 of the 5 and first starting playoff game I believe for all 5. We just can't let the Thunder get way ahead in the first 5 minutes of the game.
hi im new here
The Rox are unpatient.They need to work for a good percentage shoot close to the rim first
Worst start you could have! Falling apart early, expecting Lin to get abused as usual. Harden is harden, ISO and no defense giving a wide open dunk to durant, Lin not playing rough defense with a quick foul (which should have been a charge)
It was indeed a charge.
It is really a crazy atmosphere... They need to step back a little and calm down. Playing bad on d.. Offense too sticky.
Lin playing great as a shooting guard!
Ha right? If you have Parsons and Harden on the court, Lin should not be shooting that 3 ball at the end of the shot clock. He should be passing it to them.
McHell's alternative universe coaching!
I feel kinda bad for HOU, they look so young and inexperienced.
Lin with some bad turnovers to start the quarter, and then a missed 3, needs to do a better job of stopping Westbrook in transition.
10-2 run? I thought it will be 10-0 run good job and great game plan McHale
Lin was nervous. Failed pass, followed by unwise attempt to draw charge against KD. He'll settle down now. But picking up 1 foul already makes him give ground on defense.
So I tuned in.Then I said to myself: "why did you do that, you know how its gunna turn out"...3 minutes later its 2 - 10 OKC lead.But I am still watching.Oh yeah this Harden dominated offense is garbage, defense even worse. Parsons should not handle the ball, lol @ floater. And Lin is cooollldddd...OKC win by blowout.
Refs are helping OKC too, giving them FT's for any contact.
Fucking JLin's did a great job at taking the charge, no call, and Durant gets fucking shots.
Lin looks really unsure of himself
He's not dribbling the ball enough to even warm up yet.
No he is just passing off when he has the ball
And, he's supposed to get the ball back.
Ball is sticky.
C'mon Lin, don't be afraid. You gotta step up.
Someone need to tell Lin this is what he has been working so hard for.
Sef > HardenHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA another 3. Harden so was not needed at the post.Harden haha go home blocked so hard.
Guess who will make the 1st shot
We are in trouble.
Hi..welcome to this site
Point differential by half, over or under 20 pts?
Lin really looked tentative...can't seem to make any play
This team looks she'llshocked
LOL ASIK NEEDS FREETHROWS!!! 3 MISSES IN A ROW
Lol baited or what...Lin was so not looking to shoot but draw fouls...
DId I read that right his FG% is .49 now?
no, just against okc in their match ups.
Die by the 3.
Sef is open all day?
why the fuck is parsons dribbling the ball????
Now BOTH Harden AND Parson are dumping the ball on Lin with zero time on the shot clock!
He's the only one open. The defense is still leaving him open and he just has to make those open shots.
Wow long 3...TOo bad in and out.Parsons thinks he's Harden now.Houston lose by 30?
Parsons couldn't beat his man.
duh, he can only beat steve black cause he's slow and like 10 inches shorter than parsons but against okc? he's needs to stop. He's not the white LBJ.
Lin is just standing in the corner
LMAO at Harden.So guess he's not playing D now that he has a foul?
Absolutely no offensive rhythm at all
bc we like variance and having parsons and harden handle the ball.
Nobody on the Rockets knows how to set a pick to get anybody free. It's just turning into 1 on 1 ISO in the FIRST quarter.
omg give the ball to lin more he finds POINTS!
Is everyone trying to prove something.0 ball movement, even Lin. Everyone going ISO.McHale playbook?
Mchale's plan for playoff:1.ISO2.ISO3.ISO4.All else fail then keep ISO
Too much one on one.
Lin has missed every shot. Bev will come in soon.
But this is a type of game where u want Lin to play more and get more comfortable playing. Freaking McHale.
PB makes Westbrook get much explosive
Lin's missed every fg attempt he's made.
Keep him in to warm up
Houston is playing disorganized bball...that's what happens when you don't have an official PG
Smith picked up his 2nd foul.He will be out.
Defense is the key, and Rox need to nail the jumpers
It's embarrassing there are so few onball or offball screens. People just standing around. What have the coaches been doing?
Coaches getting paid to do nothing.
Lin said they added a couple new plays...
Lin asked for pickpick and yet nobody came
Harden and Parsons won't set picks. Smith is young and Asik still has no clue how to set one.
Lin needs to settle down.
i think we're gonna be ok,hope they will set 2 screens for Jlin every possession,too much outside shooting right now.
Bev coming in. Ibaka is beasting on the boards and on defense. Rockets really need a legit PF.
Harden the PG, Parsons the PG, Delfino the PG, not to mention Bev, anyone surprised? Game's over by the rate this is going.
honestly, Lin seems more calm/prepared/less anxious than Parsons/Harden. I can't put my finger on it...Or maybe I just want them to give him the ball.
McHell made adjustments. Instead of ISO Harden, we are seeing ISO BIEBER AND ISO Harden.
Oh.. That's the new wrinkles he said before ??
Who's the pg in this team? Every dawn player brings the ball down court.
we're not doing as bad as I thought...I thought the score would be worse.
Down 11 in the 1st quarter is very bad.
As usual, Lin gets all the blame for Rockets playing bad, not making shots.
The problem is that guys like Lin they need to dribble a bit and warm up. Wait and you will see. Even though he missed he last shot I liked his dribble. They will be fine.
First Q of first playoff game jitters. Everyone including Lin look so tense out there. Maybe it'll take a whole Q for them to get used to playoff environment.
Let's hope so.
Bev in at 2:58. Let's guess when Lin comes back...
4 mins left in 2Q
PB in .. He will play almost in 2nd and 3rd qurater then 4th quarter wholly.
Even though Delfino missed that shot. That was good ball movement. but that DEFENSE!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?
Ok, I am seeing this as a good start by Lin. Had a bad pass off the bat but he tried his style. He is playing very good defense. Remember, Lin has had more pressure on him than anyone and he has succeeded time and time again.I think he starts taking over by 3rd quarter if its close. The entire Rockets team looks tight.
Lol Rox getting killed on offense and defense.Wide open 3s all night.
Wow WB eating PB alive.
Actually Harden...Then PB...Cause Hardne didn't wanna take on WB and called PB with his back turned.Lol...
You see how Bev gets burned like that? Khuang's right.
Can't let WB pick up speed, Lin does great stopping him at the perimeter.PB didn't even see it coming lol.
Jlin needs to be there,there's no way Beverly is better than him,give him 2 minutes for a breather that's it,this is playoff no time for phasing the players too much
lol beverly can't stop westbrook
PB WTF !! Why Mchale love this guy so much ?seriously i can't find PB gets any better things than Jlin ...
Maybe Lin can take this time to regroup.
They got to get the lead down to below 10 for the second quarter. I think that's pretty good if they can get it below 10.
Wow, BEV is just got blown by twice by Westbrook and k think Westbrook will attack BEV like crazy
Lin is back?
Lin is back with Asik!!
Lin back in?
If Mchale will marginalized Jlin this game,there's no way we're winning.
weird rotation, harden can't even guard martin, smh
James Harden defense for you guys. speechless
Hou gettin schooled.
Shouldn't harden know how to move w/o the ball?
Harden ISO to close
Lin on the floor with Harden and Beverley... WHY??
I mean its good that Lin is back but doesn't McHale have any set rotations? So random.
hahaha, I think thats Mchale's game plan rotation at randon
Wow.. PB just got 2 point and Mchale cant be happier with this even though he makes Westbrook get explosive
Nice to see the three guys in together. Like to see Lin and Bev going wild on these guards - good defensive energy
FLOP HARDEN i hate that shit
Lol Lin in then out again. Wtf is with this rotation.
Well, it doesn't matter how you start but how you finish. Only by 7 to finish the first quarter is actually GREAT for the Rockets and how they are playing. Let the players warm up a little bit more and this will get very interesting soon!
And now Lin out again? WTF is he doing?
No second foul for Lin thats why, but of course Bev gets scored on easily
Bev is not a good defender
he took Lin out bc Bev scored and Durant came back in. He wanted Parsons on Durant.
HTF do you get into the rhythm of playing consistently if you get substituted like that ? is there a method to this madness ??
No then why even bring Lin in with 3 min left. It's really weird what McHale is doing.
lin has one foul, not two.
Rox soooo lucky OKC missed a lot of shots. Hopefully they got the jitters out and start playing their game.
I agree. Kinda feel like OKC is messing with us. Preserving their energy for the next round.
So much for beverly's defense. West and Reggie are just blowing by him.
Hope second quarter starts with Lin and Anderson Garcia TJones and Delfino.
Thunders threw the 1 st punch and we took it okay.
Harden is looking confident. I want to see Lin come back in with more confidence. This is a great start for the Rox somehow.
Hope the shots start falling for Lin and the guys. They need to come down and start throwing their punches
I hope Mchale will sit Harden and Beverly and let Lin run the team,he can put Garcia,Parsons,Asik,TJones,I think this is the best line up that the Rox have.
harden's gonna play 45min.
Lin was in and then out fast.
McHell looks medicated.
Nice steal by PBLin is not coming back 1st half?
Damn Lin can't hit shit.
Come on Lin ! Missed all the shots.
0/4 LinNice hocky pass tho
Making things Happen!
Lin needs to catch and shoot on that. He is cooild. He needs to pick it up if the Rox want to have a chance to win.
Lin with the D or what.Nice, 2pt game.
good D LIn,lets go!
Good take on the charge.
I hope Harden willmove,cut and used screens not just waiting for the ball
that's not his thing. I hear you though.
At this pace Rox starters will foul out by 3rd quarter.OKC playing like garbage all the sudden lol.
Lol Harden broke his own ankles.
That fino 3 was ice cold!
Lol KMart answers.
Nice dunk by asik over collison.
Everyone out is playing point guard except Lin "The Point Guard" Shrugz
Is McHale stupid or what, is he only using a 7 men rotation?
Harden is a liability right now
Wow Lin got caught half asleep fisher nails a 3.
No, Lin had to help stop dribble penetration.
No, he was helping to defense the penetration, stop taliking craps
Wth is lin doing... smh
at least he got fouled...that's something.
That's why they need Lin on the court.
Lin has to stop the help defense, everyone in OKC can shoot, why leave fisher open? I hate when he does that, does coaches want him to do that?
It's a problem of Lin's.
I think Bev is off to a great start. Not good for Lin. I think Lin can do a better job but he is really not given the chance. He needs to drive a little more. The jumpers will start falling.
This coach has no knowledge of the game,hope someone will show him a lot of Spurs playbook
