Jlin will play!!!!
Go Jeremy! Is it on ESPN? there is like 6 min left in the Pacers game.
Matt Jackson: Jeremy Lin is shooting, but it looks like to me he has having trouble raising the shoulder.
Lin is short on everything.
he doesn't haveto shoot to cause offense and d to have to adjust. hope so ...
Argh. Playing with unreliable shooting. It could be ugly.
I hope that this development will silence those who say without proof that lin is soft....whatever they mean by that...go jeremy, just give it your best, win or lose, painful or pain free, i'm with you all the way
Lets go Jlin!!! Your effort will carry this team to a victory.
ha, doesn't look like it . 39-19 okc after one period. smhi was wondering if wbrk's absence was going to make any dent. it just gives durant more touches as a more efficient shooter.man, okc shooting % is out of this world tonight. how can the rox stop the momentum?..... hopefully they'll come out fighting at the 2nd.
HYI hope that lin's presence in the court no matter how long or short will be worth the time, money and energy u spent to watch this game...God heard your prayers...He doesn't want to disappoint you....enjoy and bring home great pictures and great memories
Too busy watching, sorry
No worries, we understand...how does jeremy look at pregame? Any sign he is hurting?
enjoy, HY! =)
Let's go Jeremy! Don't hurt yourself and glorify Lord with your play!
Goddammit all streams link to HAWK PACERS game! I don't want to watch that shit
I missed Jeremy's first bucket!!! ARRGHHH
Lin!!!! with the contusion, omg!!!!
Ref#17 = Joey Crawford?
Harden with two fouls. I'd like to see Garcia in there.Thunder still killing the Rockets on the glass.
Foul trouble for Harden already...? Hmmm...
Calling fouls on Rox like crazy not unexpected. What is up with this place. Sooooo many empty seats!
Come on... It's a playoff game... More like bad fan base
I gave up long time ago on this houston fan base...i don't expect anything from them at all ...not surprised if they dont fill up the arena though it looks full to me
its on espn 2!
Bev and Harden already with 2 fouls.
Houston defense suck
why is harden still in with two fouls?
Lin seems to still pass the ball out often, you guys should know better than II will watch more on his interaction with coaches and players
That will be an inside report...we'll await for your account
Lin is playing passively so far. No driving to the basket.
Can't defend, can't shoot, ISOs, too many missing 3s and so predictable
He may still be in pain, do u see some black padding on his right shoulder?
Yup, u can see it
Y don't u come down and sneak in to those seats in the crony. A lot of empty seats.
He's clearly hurting... When he tried to help a teammate off the floor, he offered both hands then took away his right hand and gave a grimace...sorry for lin
Rox poor start, no offense, no defense. Without RW, they can still beat us easily.
Lin needs to stop leaving his man!
Lin still leaving Fisher. WHY??
Nearly all OKC's points coming from their forwards, their guards are just spectators.
With this small line up .. We can't get def rb's!!
Rockets just don't have the horses.
JL sits and has ice on shoulder (I guess you can see it on TV)It looks like he has difficulty penetrating, correct?
It looks like he has difficulty taking it to the rim. He looking more to dis distribute than score.
and no one finish crap.
Refs cheated early to give OKC the momentum after Rockets' hot start.Now they're making some makeup calls...but the damage is done.Still a long way to go, though.
Lin is still hurting.He is not gonna have a good game.U can see he can't be aggressive.
I guess that was only a 2 by Lin. Foot prob on line again.
KD kn a mission! He is going to a pew more than 50 in the game, Rockets don't have a fighting chance with this plan is shootings stilt contested 3s and fouling like crazy
Lin looks very frustrated...he needs a hug
Just like I expected the refs calling fouls on bev...not surprised nba.
Lins shoulder ice cold and now he is back in.
Third PF on Bev - we are in no doubt who the refs think was to blame for WB's missing from the playoffs, which will cost NBA money for reduced ratings.
Parsons no defense.
Rockets suck man! Its gonna be a blow out game.
I like the last drive where he turned his shoulder. He did it to protect himself, but it had the effect of getting by his man more cleanly. Too bad he couldn't finish...think it was probably painful leading with that right arm.
That was a great move and he finishes that layup 9/10 times when healthy.Not that it matters -- this is getting ugly. Hot shooting by Durant and refs stole the Rockets' early momentum.
Harden isn't 'creating', but they are still going through him on consecutive possessions.
Durant almost out scoring the Rox by himself..
This is just humiliating!
It's a blow out. Durant is just on another level and now he doesn't have to share the ball with Westbrook.
yeah. thats what I was thinking. he never really asks for the ball but he is such a great scorer. Hes 2x Melo
This is one game i wished harden will pour in as many points he can if it will help the team win..however, most of his shots are missing...Nothing is working for rocket's advantage tonight....sigh
Lin is not prepare for the last shot. Wonder why harden not finish it by himself
They're selling Beverly jerseys. Wow.
I said the rox will get blown out by 40 points easy, game over.
with or without Westbrook .. Rox is outclassed.. playing for pride now.
Kinda expected KD will go all out this game. No more co-captain. He's steering the ship now. And he has OKC looking like king of the sea.
Foul trouble. Second unit have chance and let Lin lead them and winning the game by giving out the assists
They are getting embarassed
This is so ugly,now they are worst than bob cat.
When Durant goes into the Hall of Fame, this is one of the games that people will bring up to prove his dominance.
F**k u Jon Barry for saying " Lin hurting the team right now if u can't play"
I know. That guy always criticizes JLin. Jon Barry sucked when he played.
Barry is one of the biggest Lin trolls
Who's Jon Barry? No idea, probably some kind of azzhole.
we might many starters foul out by the third quarter with the ways the fouls are being called.
aahhh... that's why I was thinking these ESPN guys really love OKC.
Did someone just go at Lin when he called that time out?
It was KD.
wow, with knowledge that JLin is injured, now that counts as a cheap shot
Durant is now a permanent member of my shit list.
are they getting back on him bcoz of bev/ wes issue? oh please.......okc
OKC has no class. A bunch of wankers.
WOW Durant? REALLY!?
Durant went deliberately into Lin's right arm when Lin was calling a timeout. What an asshole.
IDK if it's too early to concede or am i a pessimist more than a realist but i think that OKC will win this game...i hate to bring out a negative vibe here but i' m done for this game...i just hope lin doesnt get hurt more than he is now..just wanna say i'm proud of this kid and i'm proud to be his fan...
our guy tried but he is hurting...fans who remained loyal to jlin deserve a shoutout!!!!
He is hurting,just don't play man! This series is over.
okc will sweep it looks like
Worried. painful to watch
'Hey let me screw with your injury area while you are standing there immobile and calling timeout.' Durant is a straight up jackass.
It wasn't just one swipe either. After the whistle, KD still tried to wrench the ball loose.
Lin was holding the ball with both hands, Durant wasn't trying to steal the ball.
He's a fake nice guy. Now, I know, and I won't forget it.
Painful to watch indeed, not just Rox's score, but also Lin's shoulder pain
Really sorry, HY...but just think of how often a fan can see his fave player play live..not too often so u are still more blessed than many of us who wanted to see him...especially if u leave in east coast
I was in MSG on 12/17, it was a joy to see him not only enjoy playing, but also play well.Today, I only see his pain, and KD seemed intentionally bumped into his shoulder.Painful to watch..........
What was i thinking last night??? I meant live not leave...i know HY left from east to visit the west...haha
Why is he even playing?
C'mon Brooksy.. someone needs to step up..
MIP, lets get us back in the game.
Alright, c'mon HOU, let's win this game.
I see Lin's father, don't see his mom
I hope KD get injuries for that obvious foul on Lin, and it was not even called
lol relax man.. lin should not be on the floor on the first place he hardly touched him
I would love to barely touch your ugly mug, Dannio
"he hardly touched him"[smacked JLin's right forearm.]
Then get a pair of glasses or just open your eyes, "barely touched him" smh
He clearly retaliated by deliberately and unnecessarily hacking on the Asian guy of course. What are you relaxing about?
Ball will start going in.
Proud of Jeremy playing through pain. Lost all respect for KD.
Lin is prob done I'm guessing. Great effort and attempt but needs prob more than a week to get better.
You called it all along but the morons kept insisting that Lin play.
Stu I thought it was more of a strength issue not pain. Musculoskeletal medicine, lol.
It's both. And if there is pain it is even worse. I'm sure your job is much tougher than mine. Just go see ortho I guess Solidz75 if you ever have pain.
Like that moron name solidz75. Hahaha...jk.
Trust me. If you are in the know, you would never go to a sports medicine "expert". IMO they are glorified pa's for orthopedists. Sorry
Early fouls killed the momentum.
Parsons open all day.
I'm surprised by KD. Anyhow just glad JLin tried. He is clearly in pain.
He is just sticking up for Westbrook. But it came out really awkward. He is a fake tough guy a la bosh.
Sticking up or not, still a cheap shot.
This is boring.
AB just did the Felton.
What's the Felton
Asik also sits with ice around the waist
Game is unwatchable. Harden being Harden.
Game not over yet. If Harden 3-10 and Delfino 0-3 starting bucketing and also refs are slowing down their biased reff'ing (crowd booing decisions) Rox still in with a chance.
Also Durant might get arthritis from his shooting/dunking arm
Tell Bev to run into him ..
I'm proud of Jeremy for trying -- he hit an early jumper and he moved the ball without turning it over even once. He just isn't in any shape to attack and finish...and his teammates couldn't hit their 3s. Not to mention the early ref-cheating to cool off the Rockets and completely change the rhythm of the game.
I agree. He tried. That is what matters. U can't never fault a player for giving it all.
He did his best under the circumstances.
Yeah, even if he can't come back, it's obviously not a serious injury like the meniscus tear he dealt with last year. So he'll come back better and more determined than ever next season...whether it's with the Rockets or the Lakers, ha. I mean, the second half of the year went pretty darn well. Until the last couple McFail losses, he was shooting something like 48% FG and 40% 3pt for the past two months! And he was making highlight reel drives and passes with more trust from Harden with fewer dumb TOs.
He just couldn't play thru the pain. I think he will be out on Monday.
Still no games missed this whole season! Khuang got his wish
lol khuang called it. fake tough guy durant gunned for lin instead of beverley.
I really lost a lot of respect for KD this game and this season. Such a phony tough guy. Obviously an amazing scorer because of his freak anatomy (insane wingspan lets him move like a SF but shoot over anyone), but he's just a random punk underneath it all.Duncan and Parker...that's how you play the game and carry yourself.
I'm kinda annoyed none of his teamates came to lin's defense. This guy puts his heart out there to play.. This happens and his teammates just watch. Just weak.
same shit happened in new york.won't stick up for an asian, get used to it.
Only Garcia seems to be willing to get in KD's face. Definitely keep him, Morey.
Another cheapass rip-through foul by Durant. I'm so sick of seeing that shit every time he's on the floor.
LMAO, loved TJones reaction to that foul on Garcia.
Where is our superstar harden?
Done with this game. Hope they at least make it respectable.
Wish we have a Dennis Rodman type of player on the team.. he would play "rough" on KD.. I don't think he can take the rough stuff.. looks like a prima dona to me.. get the "hit man" Bev on him.. we need to do something !
So true. I wish we had a Metta World Peace or Matt Barnes on the team. Or even Bill Walker, remember him? He loved to get in people's faces (and he could he 3s decently too).
love the Piston team from the 80's.. they played rough but fair.. they make you earn the basket..
I like to see BEV rattle KD like a pest second half and stand up for Lin! Or friggin ESPN will glorify KD at the expense of JLiN and rockets all damn nite if KD continue to get refs help and score 50 +
This 2-3 zone sucks
Durant tries to steal the ball from JLin as he calls timeout [smacks JLin's right forearm]DMayberry [fr The Oklahoman]: Kevin Durant charges Jeremy Lin as he crosses halfcourt planning to call timeout. Durant wraps his arm around him and then smiles.
are you serious? he put his hand on the ball as the ref whistled. nothings happened because OKC knows they have this game and series wrapped up.
are you serious nothings happened? everybody saw it and you didn't saw it!! great! Duh...
I don't know what else to tell you, u all saw the first half.It's not pleasant to sit here watching.I made the poster "Hi from jeremylin.net", but too frustrated to hold it up
Hold it up, Sista! You gotta represent cuz JLin is trying! (It's not our fault or Lin's fault - this game just shows how important Lin is to any team, esp Rox. All the LOH's now live the difference. We just want to see him heal up and next season'l be nice.)
Sorry you had to watch this in person -- it'll just make it sweeter, though, when a healthy and properly used Jeremy Lin goes Playoff Linsanity in a year or two. Just a bad break this season...and they still made the playoffs!
Sorry you had to see that KD/ JLin BS, HY...[Yeah, hold up the sign anyways.]
