Everyone talkin Beverly this Beverly that
I don't mind they talk about bev this and that...just want lin to have a good game, even if no one talks about him.
Oh Fuck! So this is the end?
Lin looks hurt
at least it explains Lin off shooting, he has been stellar for the past 2 months as far as shooting
Awwwwwwww what happened to his shoulder?
Something happened to Lin's shoulder. He went inside, not on the court anymore.
Shit! Lin is in locker room.he got hurt.
it's bev's night...
I hope lin is not seriously hurt
WTF how did Lin get hurt?!
jammed his shoulder running in to Sefolosha on a loose ball play
Suffered a contusion in chest after diving into the ball, that's what i heard
Hope it's not too serious an injury.
lin on the bench? I don't see him..
How terrible this is turbo g out to be! Lost job and then get hurt. And rockets starting to fall apart, I guess without Lin on court I got to root for OKC or hell breaks loose if Rox won without Lin
OKC is already pulling away. By 9 point now near the end of 3rd. I think OKC will win by at least 15 points or more I just feel. The first game I was so accurate in predicting 3-point shots made and attempted for each team: 95% ball park.Anyway, I've been wanting Beverley to play more with Harden, but NOT Bev and Lin together: I wanted to accurately see if who is better, Lin or Bev by letting them play apart from each other, both with starters and with the reserves (Because I've always felt that Morey & McHale tried to show everyone that Douglas and Beverley - the backups - are better than Lin). I always felt Lin is better overall hands down. Wish Lin would improve on 3-point spot up though by stepping back a little more; he often overshoots or too strong, but doesn't make adjustments during the game. SMH.

Im not liking this :( contusion whats that!?
chest contusion. I guess he got elbowed pretty hard :(
Bruise definitely not serious.
He layed in the ball ..
Hope he can come back. Common Lin! We need you!!
He just had a chest contusion
How serious is that?
Not at all. He should be able to come back.
Just a bruise. Hurts like hell, but at worst, he'll miss the rest of this game.Probably not even that, IMO.
If its not so serious then why couldnt he even get a shot up?
A contusion is basically a bruise. He should be fine though his return is "questionable" for this game.
Contusion in chest shld not be serious but may be painful at the moment...they need to give a shot of pain med and he shld be able to come back but he'll be hurting again when the effect wears off... It shldnt be as serious if it were brain contusion
well if a contusion he might need rest and tons of cold compress and anti-inflammatory medication
I feel terrible for him right now. He works so hard. ..just wanted him to have a good series.
let's keep positive. Not over yet. Maybe not so bad [hopefully.]
hope he's alright...
He'll come back in 4Q and help to win the game!
Bev is a fouling machine idiot. Anyone can play aggressive D if you are allowed to foul so much.Puts the other team in the bonus early. Anyone who thinks that Bev is a great defender seems to ignore this. 2 fouls in 30 secs, without even contesting a shot. It's straight dumb.
Good to hear no structural damage to the shoulder.
I can't watch this anymore
Anyone saw "Lin Diving for ball on the floor in the first half?" Reporter said return is questionable, ugh, hope he is okAy
who did that? who hurts jeremy?? you bad guy....><
Unless he fractured a rib .. That can hurt like hell
charlie horse to the chest
maybe the silver lining is Lin gets traded sooner than later. I only feel bad for Lin because these are the only games that matter and of course he gets hurt...Don't matter if Lin stinks or does well, would like to see him play and bring whatever results into the summer with him.
Right now that doesnt seem like a silver lining. Poor kid cant get himself going
This was never his team. He was like an outsider trying to fit in all season. There are no real teams for Lin to go to. The only one is the Lakers. Let's pray for a miracle.
TV announcer said it's a 'contusion'. basically, a bruise.
Parsons too amp'd up (shots off backboard not going in).Wanna see Beverley talk some smack to Westbrook and really get under his skin.Hope Lin can come back late in fourth and help close out game.OKC a bit unraveled.
just give him a shot of toradol, Kevin!
Potential Willis Reed scenario for JLin...
We need Lin, Bev will foul out soon
Finally get to watch and Jeremy gets hurt .. Shit
Lol same here!
Jason Friedman @JasonCFriedman 4mJeremy Lin has a muscle contusion in his right chest. Questionable to return.
hopefully some painkiller will do it.
perhaps he got it from trying to draw a charge?
I think he's getting an X-ray.. Please don't let it be a fracture..
If he fractured a rib, nothing much can be done, he has to wait for the rib to heal, it will take time, it is painful so more likely he will miss a few games, if not the entire series...hopefully, that's not the case
Darn, how do you shoot with a right chest contusion?
Can JLin wear some kind of chest protector, he gets knocked down too many times
you mean like the bat suit?
I doubt Lin is coming back. He isn't a sissy and will play through pain. He probably can't move his arm due to the chest pain. Unless he takes a shot to dull the pain, I doubt he comes back.
this is sad. i doubt he will even be back for the next two games.
hope for the best..
Lin truly is tough and plays with something to prove. I hope the training staff can perform a miracle...I would have liked for Lin to get some playoff experience...
Guys, Lin is done in Houston. Beverly is the starting point guard playing starting minutes. Even before Lin got hurt, he was out of the game. The Lin haters won. Such a shame. Sad part is not only did Houston destroy his year, he may have destroyed his career. Who will hire him now? Sometimes the bad guys win.
Kay lets not get too emotional over here
i understand the worries, but let's stay positive. c'mon...
don't worry, Rose. That's a good scenario if Bev is seen as a fitting PG next to Harden because Lin will get to play full-time PG somewhere else.So cheer for Lin to have a great game but also for Bev.They have a shot to win this game if Lin can come back to slow down Westbrook,
Shut ur ass mouth, u troll
Relax, lol. He was playing well and it's one playoff game against OKC -- you gotta try different things like going small. Even in the absolute worst case scenario, he'd be the Manu Ginobili of the team...in which case at least he'd get to run the offense for 25-28mpg.What's annoying is that Jeremy got a minor injury in a close game.
Wow I think you need to calm down, Lin isn't going anywhere, he's got a 3 yr 25 million dollar contract. He's probably out for this game, we'll see for the rest of the series. But seriously he's going to have a great career. RELAX.
Lin was not out of the game before he got Hurt! if you had listened carefully to the tv announcer, he said that Lin tried to give it a go at the start of the second half but took himself out of the game!
Rose,Pls go over to CF, home of trollers. Here you haters get shouted down.
Well LOH got their wish. No Lin. Fuck
People as long as its not a rib fracture he should be able to come back next game. What is this doom and gloom.
This is not even close to the knee injury he had last year.
It isnt exactly encouraging. Its times like this you start to doubt things that you previously were 100% sure about. Been so long since he's gone Linsanity on us..you start to wonder if everything the haters say is partly correct..
U r acting like he tore his acl.chill put
Let us pray...:)
let's do it :)4Q Willis Reed comeback!
I'm with you
Should I wish rockets win tnite or blow out in second half
Well apparently a lot of people are wishing they get blown out. And its working. Personally I say hope they stay in it. Takes more pressure off Lin to save the day.
At least we get to see how good the Rox are without Lin.
Not very apparently
Why so many people hating on Lin on twitter? Wow.... I really hope he comes back this is mot looking good at ALL!
Why are they hating on him? He is not even playing .
Thats what haters do
They should be really happy he's off the court since they think he sucks.
get off twitter...ugly out there
why? because they have nothing to do besides hating on lin.
Lin's right shoulder has been hurting since late reg season. He's a fighter who won't give up. It must be very severe to the extent he has to leave the game.
It's funny how they calling Lin names because a contusion is not serious and how he is always injured. When he has had busted lips and busted heads and hasn't missed ONE game the whole season. And yeah, I'm staying away from all that, I still hope they win tonight.
The way rox treated jeremy, i could give a shit aboit this team...
Here we go :'(
I just stopped caring about this game.
Bye bye rockets!
I'm sure Lin will be blamed for this loss, again! Lol, smh
lol. how can that be? he's not even on the court.
He got hurt last year and did not play against the heat, and so many people hating on it and blamed him for not toughing out win team need him, just wait for the news
having Bev start is just a novelty idea not something u can rely upon. He plays no defense and not a good playmaker. without Lin the Rox really had no chance in this game.
Holy shit. I'm a pessimist and some of guys are making me look good.
good have Bev in this game lol it will be worse
I dont get why you want them to be blown out. Its not helping Lin.
Here comes the 3rd quarter collapse.
Rox are soooo god withou Lin... Lol
I know! the Rox offense is really clicking on ALL cylinders
the fact that the Rox staff are ok of marginalizing Lin's role speaks volumes just how Mchale sees Lin
Bwahahaha...all the Rockets fans eager to see Lin out are realizing how idiotic they are. "Great! No Lin! Wait...oh no. Beverly is so dumb. Two fouls in 4 secs? Yeah! Aaron Brooks, he's so much better than Lin too! Oh wait...oh no. Crap. He's awful. Noooo!"
I hate to burst your bubble but nobody is saying that. Or thinking it. They are thinking: the reason we are even in this game is because of Beverly. If not for that we would be blown out right now like last game. Oh and they are probably yelling about Lin being soft and accident prone - just for good measure
Music, do me a favor and go to twitter and search for Jeremy Lin. Trust me, it's not pretty. And how can you say that Lin is soft when he has busted lips, busted head and hasn't missed ONE game the whole season.... People...
Rockets are so messed up now,no ball movement.
Any new news Lin will be back in this game yet? Perhaps the 4th quarter?
no, I don't see him on the bench yet.
All the Rox do is shoot 3's!!! LOL
jeez another 3 by harden, thats all they do
Harden turnovers a bundle
Harden is horrible, he sucks the sweaty balls off a donkey! I don't know why every idiotic fan is so enamored with a selfish, ballhog, turnover machine who is nothing more than a FUCKING STATS PADDER!!!
Clutchfan is confused. They don't know who to blame.
Lin will be their scapegoat in the end maybe
Houston has reared some famous serial killers the MO of which is semi literate, low income sadism. I watch CF in the same light - most trollers are 2 finger typists who can barely type more than one line often without proper punctuation and peppered with swear words and mono syllables.
dip in rating due to the whole of China turning off their TVs
The golden boy harden has 6 TO lol.
it F**KING ridiclous how Harden receives NO CRITICISM OR HATE for his play
He looks lost, you can really see it on that TNT overdrive...he's struggling against these guys that he knows..
No update for a chest contusion?
The situation is set up perfectly for a Lin comeback.Hope he can make it back in 4Q
Boring without Lin.
We need Garcia to go for the ball.
Nash was out for weeks with a leg contusion so I don't know how bad a chest contusion is.
He probably had a micro-fracture of something...
Beverly is actually pretty good. He over fouls and plays D a bit too aggressively but he would have paired well with Lin instead of Lin/Harden.The more I watch Harden, the less impressed I am with his game. He's getting shut down because he is not that fast athletically AND he is semi-lazy or plays in that manner.Maybe Harden is just injured or gotten bogged down from the season. He was a different player at the start, scouting or no scouting etc...
Haters will find a way to blame Lin even he is not on the floor.
Bev close to triple double..
Only if we have Lin playing, the Rox would have won this quarter.
http://www.freemd.com/chest-contusion/treatment.htmTreatment for a chest contusion includes rest, cold compresses, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications for pain. A person with a chest contusion tends to avoid deep breaths because of pain. However, deep breathing is important to reduce the risk for atelectasis and pneumonia. Thus, pain medication is important for those who are unable to breathe deeply because of pain. Severe chest contusions may result in multiple rib fractures or injuries to internal organs, such as the lung. Severe internal injuries may require oxygen therapy and surgery to repair damaged tissue.
Thanks for that. Sounds like it could be more serious than we thought.He's a warrior who often plays better when banged up...so you know it must be painful as heck or he'd be out there.Hate to say it, but maybe he should sit out the game just as a precaution.
wait for xray. no one knows the nature of the contusion. hope for the best. let's not lose heart..could be not so bad..
There's no way they can win w/o Lin
If Lin has trouble breathing, he shouldn't come back at all.He won't be effective if he can't breathe well.Better be prayin' for his health now.
yeah. let HOU see that.
above post @KWL
Lin may not be back anymore which is better for him... If he comes back, he will be struggling a lot more bec of pain... Besides, if rockets lose, he will be blamed, if they win w/o him, lin will be traded...
You know how important Lin is when he is not in.Beverly is on the verge of fouling out.Lin is the key of this game.Win / Loss
If we could have the 3 guards offense in the 4th. The Thunder is going to be in big trouble.
Been lurking on clutchfans for awhile...gotta say you guys are completely right, that place is a hellhole. People bashing lin for missing 2 three pointers while beverley and harden have the same or worse percentages.
houston has a shitty, ignorant fanbase.
It's important to remember that Rockets fans are from TEXAS. Texas is the most racist state in the entire country. Half of them want to secede from the US and scream about that "Muslim Obama" trying to take away their right to machine guns.There's plenty of hatred every. But it's magnified ten-fold in Texas.
I've never seen fans turn on their own players so fast...and so many double standards. Beverley turning the ball over just now, one comment. If that had been Lin, he'd been skewered.
The site is moderated by a bigot, which sets the tone for all the 'discussions.' So it's no surprise that CF is an embarrassment.
i had such high hopes for this game..
me too! especially that first half with a close game..
they say u cant fault bev effort wtf, if Lin did that....
Lin's return is essential.Now the defense has a hole.
Im glad this is happening to Bev not on Lin's watch they need to see the difference
okc has good crowd...houston on the other side? sad.
11-2 run, Rox falling apart
Interesting to see how many lazy media articles will say Westbrook lit up Lin, when Beverley guarded Westbrook for whole game.Beverley is a nice role player, but he benefits from having Lin and Harden on court as spacers because both represent legitimate scoring or playmaking threats.When he is the man, things, err, get a bit more difficult.And, as usual, Harden looks awful as point guard. He creates no easy looks for his teammates.
Harden as PG was a joke all season....
Delfino also needs to be dumped before his second year gets guaranteed.Too streaky as shooter, and not the factor he should be in big games, given his national team and Olympic experience
There's no way they can blame the loss on Lin.It just shows how important Lin's defense is.The Thunders are scoring at will now.
No Lin. No win.It's as simple as that -- despite what ignorant Rockets fans and J-Lin's own self-hating fans may believe.
Wow what happened, thought it was a close game until Lin was taken out for chest contusion...Its another rout now.Is Bev getting blown away by WB again?
Beverly can give Rox energy and he can score and rebound BUT he can't make the team win ...
This game is done for me. I dont think jeremy can still come back.. For his own good, he shld rest and recuperate..as i said earlier, jeremy not the PG, it is no fun to watch, no jeremy at all means i shld turn off my tv...i just hope he can play on sunday...i will say a prayer for him
So much for the Beverly experiment. This dumb ass coach can't see that the real problem is harden ballhogging. The rest of the team just stands there while harden tries to be the hero again.
Thats what was interesting about the first half of this game. With Lin and Beverly in there Harden was hardly playing pg and mostly playing off the ball. He plays much better when he does that. Now thats completely gone.
Patrick Beverly is fantastic. He is NOT the problem and does NOT suck. The problem is Harden....he was great to start the season and now is just an average high volume player. He's an old Metta World Piece with a better jumpshot and Eurostep. Literally, that's what he is...at least Metta plays crazy and scares people...And Parsons also tries to do too much but he's still within the realm of playing controlled ball.Yes mainly the problem is Harden. I also am not a Delfino fan against OKC. And Delfino is hot and cold. When he is cold, he should NOT be in the game.
Delfino is a huge defensive and rebounding liability. His streaky shot does not outweigh his weaknesses against OKC
There's no other choice.Nothing on the bench works.except maybe TJones.
Missing Lin, the Rox is not going to contain the Thunder offense.The offense is lacking too.
I hope Lin isn't out for 2 months or something. It will kill his development....he needs a lot of training this summer
Seriously, he needs to stop going to China and play against midgets with D.Lee. I'm sure he'll get alot better though. This season really opened up his eyes I bet.
This is taking too long. I think he has a rib fx.
i love lin, but bev is tougher than lin
and you're basing this on ...
If it was truly just a contusion - shouldnt Lin be back on the bench by now?
I sure hope so. There is still time to put him in and save the game.
Strange as it seems. This quarter is still even.If Delfino, Parsons are hitting their 3s.They can make a run for it.But w/o Lin, they can't stop the Thunder from scoring.
Can someone tell me why Lin isn't in the game?
Injury. "Chest contusion" (could be minor, could be serious, no real word yet).
chest contusion, getting xray
Hmmm...this quarter Bev drove into lane with no one to pass to. Also dribble and jumped near top of key expecting to pass to someone on permimeter. Sounds familiar...seems like its not a PG problem but spacing problem.
It looks like the Rox found their pg. congrats!
I'm happy for them so Lin will have trade value in the offseason.
I'm so proud of Asik with the quick, athletic dunk
I hope Houston wins so they will consider trading Lin this summer
thunder actually making mistakes is surprising me
Its really not healthy to get so invested in one player. The second he doesnt have a good game its kills your whole night.
Cmon Rox, lets get this for JLin!
