Rockets @ Suns Game #81 1st Half Game Thread

222 comments:

  1. Suns announcers are really bias against Lin. All they talk about is "The Beard" and how he is such a god send for the Rockets. They must have forgotten that Lin made the basket that tied the game last time and that Harden got a lucky goal tending call that led to the lucky Houston win.

    1. Announcers saying that Lin is much stronger than he looks and that he is crafty. If you allow him to get into the lane then he will find a way to score or pass the ball to a scorer.

    2. he is also good at math... lol...

    3. 200 lbs muscle Jeremy Lin not look strong? How much longer they say this.. Chandler Parson girl body must look strong then.

      Delete
  2. I have seen this in the last few games, but I don't like Lin's lob to G. Smith. It often turns into a TO and not a high percentage pass.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I am still impressed with Lin's first step off the triple threat.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Don't know what is happening, but Lin has let Gorgan blow past him twice.

    1. OMG....Dragic has 9 assists in the 1st Q ?!!!

      I missed the first period. But what the heck is going on? Of all people Dragic - the former Rocket whom McHell wanted instead of Lin - is what people are comparing Lin to. Lin needs to do well against him because, although the last time Lin did well against him, people will remember just this last one.

      Delete
    2. Lin also did very well against Dragic in the last Phoenix-court game but in the 4th Q the ref decided to let Dragic get away with every dirty play, including the flagrant type. So the Suns and Dragic won that one. It was blatantly crooked officiating.

      Delete
    3. OMG.... Lin played without Harden (and Parsons) for a change AND Rockets tied up the game 50-50 !!!!!!! Lin and backup players have always done very well !!!!! (almost always anyway).

      Delete
  5. So far Phoenix and Houston trading baskets. Louis Scola has been hot with the mid range shot and Asik not able to defend his shot.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Gorgan playing dirty again and giving Lin a shot to the face with his elbow. Every time Lin faces Gorgan he gets his face bruised. I believed the reason Lin is wearing a mouth piece is because of Gorgan.

    1. That was a clear cheap shot. Dragic is a dirty player.

      Delete
    2. He's a sneaky, dirty player. There's a clip of him trying to re-injure another players knee.

      Delete
    3. Lin chipped his tooth earlier this season. Good battle armor. Goggles next a la Kareem!

      Delete
    4. Dragic is going to go hard at Lin forever. They competed in Houston the first time Lin was signed. Then the Rockets chose Lin over Dragic during free agency!

      Delete
  7. Dang, Harden to last 3 secs to Parsons to Lin with half a second to shoot. Greeeaaat !

  8. WTH is going on? I can only get the game on espn play by play. There's 2 assts for our entire team while freaking Dragic has 5.

  9. Goran is lame. Hit Lin again in the face with an elbow. Damn. I hope that guy gets punked soon.

    1. I think Lin has his mind on the playoffs.

    2. that's what happens when harden/parsons pass the ball to him with a second left on the clock bc they don't to hurt their percentages.

      Delete
    3. I really hope playoff is the reason.. Cause I'm really not feeling Lin's game at all. Like he said its not like he can turn it on just like that.

      Delete
    4. Yeah, it's definitely the playoffs. He plays great during the 4th quarter/crunch time even now. It's just the first half where he's taking it easy and trying some new things (high volume jump shooting and feeding the low-post).

      Delete
  13. Lin feels confident with 3 ball but not going in now. Glad to see kid is shooting

    1. I wouldn't call it schooling. One PG is going to the playoffs and the other is not. Who is schooling whom?

    2. No sir ... he's doing his regular thing when the Rox are cycling offense to Harden.

      Delete
    3. Come on let's call it for what it is. Lin is not playing up to par.

      Delete
    4. Yes, Lin getting torched by Dragic.

      He looks a little sluggish, but I think he always has trouble with Dragic defensively. Tonight he almost looks flat footed when Dragic makes his initial move.

      This is a game where I could have McHale pulling Lin at 5 minute mark as a wake up call.

      Lin does get better as game progresses, so hopefully he wakes up in second half.

      And ultimately (a year or two later), he has to be able to knock down those wide open threes at high rate.

      Delete
    5. Look, you guys, if the ball is going to Lin in first Q, he gets the people going. This game, the ball is consistently going to Harden. So what's so different - we know he camps in the corner and if he gets the ball, he shoots it. 3pt is about 38-40%. So, if he goes 2 for 10 on 3s, or 1 for 5, then he's off. He's doing fine for how the Rox are running this offense right now. One of this 3s was with half second on the clock.

      As for Dragic, he has this game to punish Rox, so why not. I don't have any problem with Lin's game right now.

      Delete
    6. Oh you guys...learn to have a little faith in Jeremy Lin.

      Delete
    7. Great call zxcvb. People jumping off the bandwagon quickly...

  15. I really hat the line up with D-Mo in there and Harden. D-Mo is not ready for prime time atm.

  16. Dragic really taking Lin to school. Lin looks like he doesn't even care how easily Dragic gets by him.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Shit man! 1/5 not so good tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You guys should remember that Lin really plays better when there is more at stake. I don't really think this game tonight with the Suns there is alot at stake for the Rockets. Lin seems to be resort to taking a back seat and shooting jump shots.

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL, relax guys. This is the same as last night.

    He's taking it easy and relying on his jumper to prepare for the playoffs.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yup, more Parsons PG style. He has turned over the ball twice trying to be the PG.

    1. They shouldn't really be tired since the starters got rest in the blow out yesterday vs the Kings.

    2. I think it's just having to travel after a game , getting to a location late and being out of rhythm. Rest or not, they have looked horrible in b2b games esp on the road.

      Delete
    3. don't feel sorry for Lin or anyone else. Lin only played 25min, even with travel, he should be playing better.

      Delete
    4. He's not giving any effort on defense or offense. Looks like he's either tired or trying to save his energy for the playoffs.

      Delete
    5. They shouldn't even be thinking bout the playoffs. If they lose this game and the next, they fall to 8th.

  25. Dragic has already had 8 assists, Team ball prevails over heroic ball.

  33. Hello OKC? Imagine the headlines... Harden against his former team in the playoffs.

  34. The suns almost scored 40; just one shy of it.
    They are firing up and really making shots. If they maintain this pace, it's going to be a long day.

  53. "Lin ... he just blew by everybody."
    "Lin has all 5 points in the quarter."

    Ok, ... he's just cruising. Let Dragic "greyhound" as KHuang says. Big picture does not change.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Don't worry people, in the playoffs the real talents show up. The team will be so pathetically reliant on iso Harden and Parsons as the #2 option and it will be failing so pathetically that Lin will be unintentionally forced into a key stud role. I've seen it too many times in the past by bad lower seeded playoff teams.

    I believe the Rox will lose bad on the road and lose close in their home games. Maybe they'll win a close one at home or even win in 1 blowout at home and go 4-1.

    Problem is it will be too little too late when Lin turns it on and/or is allowed to shine out of the Rox desperation. It won't be enough for Lin and he won't get enough usage overall to overcome the deficits. But unless Lin is a pathetic scrub, he won't allow himself to stand in the corner the entire series looking like a useless stooge over 4 games. And if he does? He will use it as fuel over the summer to make himself that much better.

    However, be prepared to be frustrated for Lin for the this game, the next, and at least the first 2 games of the Playoffs.

  58. LOL Lin 3 for the doubters. This is a fun game, like a Sunday ride in the car. I'm enjoying no Harden, Bev in the game. Notice how Lin gives ball up and head to the corner, but the team gets him the ball back. This is the trust y'all have been writing about.

    1. Yeah the Rox DO need Harden, except his role should be playing off Lin as the leading scorer in the role currently given to Parsons. Harden would average 30ppg in that role and 2-3 assists per game.

      No Lin would not supplant Harden as leading scorer etc, Lin should be #2 or 3 on the team, but he SHOULD have the ball to make the decisions as the PG.

      Parsons needs to play more like Francisco Garcia / Battier but Mchale and Morey lost their minds and want Parsons to a super star SF.

      Lin is not perfect but I trust Lin with the ball more than Harden who is gunning for his own stats and home run passes and refuses to pass off hockey assists.

      Problem is Mchale sees Lin as we see Harden and Harden as we see Lin so Mchale agrees with exactly what we're saying just the other way around....

    1. It doesn't matter. As Lin starts to do this stuff more and more (this is like the Portland game on ESPN where Lin takes over eventually), it's only a matter of time before Lin bolts as a new team will want him in a few seasons.

      And if a new team wants him, he will be showcased and his time will come.

  93. Sorry Lin I spoke to fast...you are figuring out slowly how to take it to people even when the Rox coaches and Morey want you to be a role player who hides in the corner to showcase Harden and Parsons. Much props Lin, much props.

    Now if Lin can do this in the playoffs....

    I heard the Suns announcers say "Lin is looking like Linsanity tonight." That's there way of saying Lin is kicking freaking ass without having to acknowledge it.
