    1. Clinched 7th.

      [To clinch 6th with 2 ROX wins, 2 GSW losses, or any combo.]

    2. Hmm if they lose this and the next game. Don't they tie lakers who own tie breaker over the Rox?

    5. Rox lose both = Lakers pass Rox for at least 7th.
      Rox win tonight = Lakers can't take 7th even with win on wednesday.
      Rox win tonight + GSW lose = 6th seed.

  3. Lin with the reverse over Dragic and a trailing Suns player.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Dragic is taking cheap shot against Lin again. He always plays filthy dirty against Lin. He can't settle "who is better" the fair way. Lin must treat Dragic the same way.

    Dragic cut Lin's lip with his elbow the last time they played against each other in Phoenix. Dragic repeatedly played dirty and the ref let him in the 2nd half of the 4th Q. Lin or his teammate should retaliate. It's the only way.

    1. I just saw that after the fact (I missed it typing the above, LOL). I don't think it was intentional, but a GREAT JOB harden!

  5. Harden getting back at dragic for Lin.

    1. If it pertains to Dragic then it is Drama.

      Delete
    2. They or Lin needs to do it to Dragic intentionally the next time; even initiate, instead of just getting back at hin only. It will send a message that Lin isn't a pushover.

      Delete
  6. James Harden is a freaking bone head. How many times he going to do that drive move and draw the charge. He has two players on the wing and he didn't pass it. Instead he chose to drive straight on to his defender.

    1. He had Lin WIDE OPEN. What the fuck is wrong with Harden? That's like the 10th time this happened.

      Delete
    2. At least he elbowed dragic.

      Delete
    3. Solidz75,

      A good point. Thank you, Harden.

      I'm hearing that the Draconian Dragic will return. Time to get even for all other cheap shots against Lin that were never retaliated.

      Delete
  7. I think Harden saw all that dirty play.

    1. The backcourt binding. Lin owe one to Harden. Oor take Harden and his girl out to dinner and a movie. Oh wait, what am I saying! Harden gives his girl 46-26-46 girlfriend $50,000 (!!!!!*$#@Y!!) per month spending money. That's on top of lavish gifts from him. Yikes!

    1. Wow, a chippy game. The Suns are assured of a lottery pick and so may of former Rockets players are trying to show who's better and also to show their home fans a good time.

      I hope Lin's elbow or something in the eye is okay. He needs to see well to play well.

      Delete
  9. What is hardens shooting percentage since his return? He's missing a lot of shots.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He blew two Lin assists. Going up WEAK on a layup and got a foul, then missing a wide open 3.

      Delete
    2. No I meant since his return from injury, not just this game. He just hasn't look good shooting recently.

      Delete
  10. Lin is the most explosive player on the team
    Harden is hardening.

    ReplyDelete
  11. They want to lose this game? Not much ball movement!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Plz.. Parsons so overrated player to Mchale & Morey..

    ReplyDelete
  13. Rockets offense and defense has gone to shit when Harden and Parsons are in the game. Just an observation.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Also the TOs have been going up with those two in the game.

      Delete
  14. HARDEN is taking too many shots to get his score and that's killing the team right now.

    ReplyDelete
  15. greg smith...has very slow, poor footwork. I think he is limited. He has big frame but doesn't know how to use it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think parson and harden purposely freeze lin out when lin looks like he is going to get more points than harden

    ReplyDelete
  17. The 3rd quarter is the same story as the 1st quarter with Parsons and Harden getting their numbers but sacrificing the team.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Lin just doesn't look to shoot when parsons or hardens on the floor..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He needs to bc Parsons isn't 100% and is taking on way too much of an offensive load and Harden is playing on a bad knee.

      Delete
  19. If you take Harden out, the ball will move much faster.
    The problem is Hardening the ball.,

    ReplyDelete
  20. If the Rox lose this and the next game, aren't they 8th seed?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I fucking hate it when Parsons dribbles the ball. WTF. Stop giving him those opportunities.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow Parsons looks like garbage this game. And people think he's the 2nd best player on the Rockets? PLEASE...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Only Mchale and Morey think so.

      Delete
    2. When Parsons takes more than 3 dribbles and still has the ball, it's often bad news.

      Delete
    3. He's killing Lin, too. He keeps giving Lin the ball with the shot clock winding down...after he screwed up to waste 20+ secs.

      Delete
  23. Anybody think that Lin can turn Linsanity on and off like a faucet? Perhaps he can channel Linsanity if he opens up his chanka.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What's a chanka?

      Maybe you mean chakra. The Linsanity chakra located right above the dragon blood mark.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I meant chanka like the one from avatar.

      Delete
    3. Can't have Linsanity if there are other wannabe PG's out there that turns the ball over and not move to make themselves open.

      Delete
  24. couldn't even capitalize on Dragic's stitches.

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is not the first time Lin + 2nd team showed its mighty ball movement. It started with the Portland Trailblazers in the second quarter.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That was a clean block. Damn refs.

    ReplyDelete
  27. McHale would never admit the problem is ball Hardening!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. McFail really wants to lose this game, everybody is standing around the arc going ISO. Jeremy with an ISO brick because nobody came over to get the ball.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Is this worst team really hard to beat for them? How can they gonna handle in playoffs?

    ReplyDelete

    1. They will get blown out in all 4 games with this type of offense lol.

  30. Don't tell Harden Jeremy has more shots than him....he will go through a chuckfest in two mins just to have more shots...lol

    1. comes off bench and chucks up two...he is cold...can you just pass and get people involved and get in a rhythm by driving or shooting fts?

      Delete
    2. Harden missed 3 threes in a row and turned it over with a lazy fast break pass. He doesn't care about losing this game.

      Delete
  31. We are losing this game because bev is not playing... I keed I keed.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Harden is doing a very good impersonation of the Memphis game. He is obviously not hitting his 3 pointers tonight. He spent it all last night.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Good sub by McHale now. Need to rest Lin for the 4th.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think he's done for the game.

    2. yep. Hopefully Harden will be sitting for some of the 4th qtr too.

  34. OKC is going to destroy us in the playoffs.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Even though Parson's so much poor playing, Mchale take Lin out...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lin needs a little bit of rest for the 4th.

      Delete
  36. JLin should just sit out for the rest of the game. It's not worth it to get injured. They are going to lose anyways with the way the players are playing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Parsons is painful to watch. He is so laughably bad this game. Just terrible. Makes the wrong decision on both ends of the court 99% of the time. Can't rebound, pass, dribble, shoot, rotate, man-up...nothing.

    Game Over unless Linsanity is allowed to beast in the 4th.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Watching this game today, and I don't see how this team made the playoff without Lin. But the team can make the playoff without any other player

    ReplyDelete
  39. warriors leading 68-63 to the spurs, with parker and duncan resting the game

    ReplyDelete
  40. I get a feeling that Harden WANTS to lose 2 games, fall to 8th place and play his former team OKC Thunder in the 1st round. He's doing a tank job and McFail is allowing it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Honestly, who is more overrated, Parsons or Harden?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Parsons. At least Harden IS an elite scorer undoubtedly.

      Parsons shouldn't even be starting...much less considered a "foundational" piece.

      Delete
    2. If harden diesnt get the calls, he becomes a huge liability. The trend has been the refs are not calling as many fouls.

      Delete
    3. Just scoreboarding. Parsons' numbers look darn good. That's the problem with statlines, and mainly why Lin appears mediocre to other fanbases.

      Delete
  42. How da hell did we make the playoffs. This team looks horrible!

    ReplyDelete
  43. parson is rocket's best defender

    ReplyDelete
  44. WE haven't seen much of Asik in this game. Is he getting the Lin treatment because he lets Scola score over him with ease?

    ReplyDelete
  45. McFail tank job, nothing else to see here.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Why would McHale start the 4th with Parsons as the focal point and Beverley as the PG and without Lin again and again?

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh god, lin's not coming back

    ReplyDelete
  48. When will McHale realize that Parsons can't lead the 2nd unit?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. McHale thinks Parsons is a playmaker. I'm serious.

      Delete
    2. he does think Parsons is a playmaker, that's why he handles the ball so much.

    3. Parsons got good hair and good style. McHale is a Bieberlever.

  49. Delfino trying to do too much. Know your role!

  50. Im shocked we are still in this game.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Parsons doing well being the focal point of the offense.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Worst part of this game will be people thinking Parsons had a good game because of his shooting -- he's ruined TEN other possessions through fastbreak TOs and ball-stopping until 5s are left (so someone ELSE can take and miss a tough shot). Not to mention his horrendous rebounding and confusion on defense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. but the media and HOU retards will praise him to no end.

      Delete
    2. They will. Even the shots he made are unguarded or created by someone else.

      99% of people can't do anything but read a boxscore.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, Parsons' "selfishness level" is not that far off from Harden, that's for sure. He sure learnt a lot of those selfish tricks of making his own stats look good while making teammates worse from Harden. And the worst part is that he has nowhere the same ability but as big as an ego.

      Delete
  53. Wow neither lin or harden back.. McHale doesn't seem to care about winning this game. He really wants OKC huh.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Lin hasn't seen the fourth quarter yet even though Suns starting PG is playing.

    1. Tank? Don't want to face Denver. At all. Even OKC would be better...

      Delete
    2. At least in the minds of McHale (who refuses to run the offense through Lin).

      Delete
    3. Because McHale rides the "hot hand" and believes that an unit led by Parsons and Beverley should beat the poor Suns?! Although when Lin's doing well in the 2nd quarter, he sure didn't want to ride the "hot hand" then and still put in Parsons and Harden regardless.

      Delete
  56. Scorer gives Dragic the phony 3. Jeremy's had 4 of those taken away this season alone! NBA refs, people...

    ReplyDelete

    1. exactly my thoughts. if Lin shot that, it would have been -- and HAS BEEN -- ruled a 2.

      Delete
    2. It's hilarious how they can get away with it, too. There's zero oversight in the NBA.

      In baseball, there's a committee that tracks every strike-ball call and reviews umpire performance and makes recommendations to improve the game -- even during the middle of the season!

      Delete
  57. Mchale's son is back! Screw limiting Parsons minutes to 30.

  58. T-Jones is keeping the Rockets in the game so far.

  59. so much drama with lin being on this team

    ReplyDelete
  60. Macgail wants to lose game with Lin out 4th?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I guess I was right, Lin's not gonna finish the game and Bev is.

  62. I bet you that McHale will put back Harden and Lin with 5 minutes left in the game to see how they will respond in a tight game.

    1. They might. Denver keeps winning. And they're afraid of Denver.

      Even OKC has mental question marks (Westbrook, Scott Brooks) and a loss to the Rockets. But Denver has a great coach, depth, veterans, athleticism and 4-0 record against the Rockets.

  66. This is some horrific coaching by McHale. Leaving your two best players on the bench this long?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yeah, it's official. McSimpsons are idiots. They wait until the lead balloons back up to 8 points before calling a time out and putting back their starters.

    ReplyDelete
  68. rockets are going to get sweeped. Mchale is a incompetent coach

    ReplyDelete
  69. The last time the Rox had the lead was when Lin was the primary ballhandler. Ever since just payhetic

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't know why you guys are hating on Parsons and Harden. The Rockets still need those two to function. I don't believe Lin can do it all alone especially against the teams that will hon in on Lin and shut him down.

    1. I've been reading these comments... people saying that Parson's is having a terrible game and that he sucks? How? Am I missing something? I must be really bias.

    2. I have no idea. It's true he tries too much to be PG and causes TO, but so far he is having a decent game.

      Delete
    3. 24 points, 3 TO, 7 assists and 3 rebounds.

      Delete
    4. No player is flawless except maybe Lebron James. So you could nit pick about anyone's game. Botton line is Parson's has had quite a good game. At least that is my assessment. Thanks for sharing your assessment. I think he's played quite well.

  71. HAHAHAHA. The blindmen talking about McHAle as Coach of the Year better open their eyes now. This is unreal.

  78. Parsons played the whole 2nd half to get his pretty but empty stats lol.

    ReplyDelete
  79. McHale is an idiot. He almost benched Lin if not for that random time out. Man, this guy sucks as a coach.

    ReplyDelete
  80. The only way to justify McHale's move in the fourth is to lose this game.

    But I don't know why he would want to lose this game!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Why PB is still on the court ??

    ReplyDelete
  82. If they lose to the Lakers,they are going to play okc.

    1. Yes, don't doubt Mchale's son.

      When the ball goes through you and you play the entire second half, you gain momentum and rhythm. Would have been nice to see that with Lin in the second half.

      Delete
    2. Do you watch the game or just see the box score?

      Delete
    3. Regardless of the minutes Parson's has played, saying he has played a terrible game and sucks is just something I don't comprehend. I'll just respectfully disagree with those who see it this way.

      Delete
    4. Annnnnnddddd you know what happens when he's a primary playmaker? He gets his assists and points BUT THEY LOSE ANYWAY.

    5. When Lin/Harden have a good games, we have more wins. When Parsons/Harden have good games, we win LESS games. Parsons stats don't tell the entire story.
