  2. Matt Jackson: Jeremy Lin is shooting, but it looks like to me he has having trouble raising the shoulder.

    1. Lin is short on everything.

    2. he doesn't haveto shoot to cause offense and d to have to adjust. hope so ...

      Delete
    3. Argh. Playing with unreliable shooting. It could be ugly.

      Delete
  3. 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

    ReplyDelete
  4. Lets go Jlin!!! Your effort will carry this team to a victory.

    1. ha, doesn't look like it . 39-19 okc after one period. smh

      i 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.

    I 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

  9. Lin!!!! with the contusion, omg!!!!

  10. Harden with two fouls. I'd like to see Garcia in there.

    Thunder still killing the Rockets on the glass.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Foul trouble for Harden already...? Hmmm...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Calling fouls on Rox like crazy not unexpected. What is up with this place. Sooooo many empty seats!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Come on... It's a playoff game... More like bad fan base

      Delete
    2. 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

      Delete
  13. Bev and Harden already with 2 fouls.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lin seems to still pass the ball out often, you guys should know better than I

    I will watch more on his interaction with coaches and players

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That will be an inside report...we'll await for your account

      Delete
  15. Lin is playing passively so far. No driving to the basket.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Can't defend, can't shoot, ISOs, too many missing 3s and so predictable

    ReplyDelete
  17. He may still be in pain, do u see some black padding on his right shoulder?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Y don't u come down and sneak in to those seats in the crony. A lot of empty seats.

      Delete
    2. 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

      Delete
  18. Rox poor start, no offense, no defense. Without RW, they can still beat us easily.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lin needs to stop leaving his man!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Lin still leaving Fisher. WHY??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nearly all OKC's points coming from their forwards, their guards are just spectators.

      Delete
  21. With this small line up .. We can't get def rb's!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Rockets just don't have the horses.

    ReplyDelete
  23. JL sits and has ice on shoulder (I guess you can see it on TV)

    It looks like he has difficulty penetrating, correct?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It looks like he has difficulty taking it to the rim. He looking more to dis distribute than score.

      Delete
  24. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lin is still hurting.He is not gonna have a good game.U can see he can't be aggressive.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I guess that was only a 2 by Lin. Foot prob on line again.

    ReplyDelete
  27. 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

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lin looks very frustrated...he needs a hug

    ReplyDelete
  29. Just like I expected the refs calling fouls on bev...not surprised nba.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lins shoulder ice cold and now he is back in.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Rockets suck man! Its gonna be a blow out game.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 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.

      Delete
    2. Harden isn't 'creating', but they are still going through him on consecutive possessions.

      Delete
  34. Durant almost out scoring the Rox by himself..

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's a blow out. Durant is just on another level and now he doesn't have to share the ball with Westbrook.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah. thats what I was thinking. he never really asks for the ball but he is such a great scorer. Hes 2x Melo

      Delete
  36. 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

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lin is not prepare for the last shot. Wonder why harden not finish it by himself

    ReplyDelete
  38. They're selling Beverly jerseys. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I said the rox will get blown out by 40 points easy, game over.

    ReplyDelete
  40. with or without Westbrook .. Rox is outclassed.. playing for pride now.

    ReplyDelete
  41. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Foul trouble. Second unit have chance and let Lin lead them and winning the game by giving out the assists

    ReplyDelete
  43. This is so ugly,now they are worst than bob cat.

    ReplyDelete
  44. When Durant goes into the Hall of Fame, this is one of the games that people will bring up to prove his dominance.

    ReplyDelete
  45. F**k u Jon Barry for saying " Lin hurting the team right now if u can't play"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I know. That guy always criticizes JLin. Jon Barry sucked when he played.

      Delete
    2. Barry is one of the biggest Lin trolls

      Delete
    3. Who's Jon Barry? No idea, probably some kind of azzhole.

      Delete
  46. we might many starters foul out by the third quarter with the ways the fouls are being called.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. aahhh... that's why I was thinking these ESPN guys really love OKC.

      Delete
  47. Did someone just go at Lin when he called that time out?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. wow, with knowledge that JLin is injured, now that counts as a cheap shot

      Delete
    2. Durant is now a permanent member of my shit list.

      Delete
    3. are they getting back on him bcoz of bev/ wes issue? oh please.......okc

      Delete
    4. OKC has no class. A bunch of wankers.

      Delete
  48. Durant went deliberately into Lin's right arm when Lin was calling a timeout. What an asshole.

    ReplyDelete
  49. 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...

    1. our guy tried but he is hurting...fans who remained loyal to jlin deserve a shoutout!!!!

  50. He is hurting,just don't play man! This series is over.

    ReplyDelete
  51. okc will sweep it looks like

    ReplyDelete
  52. 'Hey let me screw with your injury area while you are standing there immobile and calling timeout.' Durant is a straight up jackass.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It wasn't just one swipe either. After the whistle, KD still tried to wrench the ball loose.

      Delete
    2. Lin was holding the ball with both hands, Durant wasn't trying to steal the ball.

      Delete
    3. He's a fake nice guy. Now, I know, and I won't forget it.

      Delete
  53. Painful to watch indeed, not just Rox's score, but also Lin's shoulder pain

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 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

      Delete
    2. 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..........

      Delete
    3. What was i thinking last night??? I meant live not leave...i know HY left from east to visit the west...haha

    1. lol relax man.. lin should not be on the floor on the first place he hardly touched him

    3. "he hardly touched him"
      [smacked JLin's right forearm.]

      Delete
    4. Then get a pair of glasses or just open your eyes, "barely touched him" smh

      Delete
    5. He clearly retaliated by deliberately and unnecessarily hacking on the Asian guy of course. What are you relaxing about?

      Delete
  58. Proud of Jeremy playing through pain. Lost all respect for KD.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Lin is prob done I'm guessing. Great effort and attempt but needs prob more than a week to get better.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You called it all along but the morons kept insisting that Lin play.

      Delete
    2. Stu I thought it was more of a strength issue not pain. Musculoskeletal medicine, lol.

      Delete
    3. 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.

      Delete
    4. Like that moron name solidz75. Hahaha...jk.

      Delete
    5. 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

  60. Early fouls killed the momentum.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm surprised by KD. Anyhow just glad JLin tried. He is clearly in pain.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He is just sticking up for Westbrook. But it came out really awkward. He is a fake tough guy a la bosh.

      Delete
    2. Sticking up or not, still a cheap shot.

      Delete
  62. Asik also sits with ice around the waist

    ReplyDelete
  63. Game is unwatchable. Harden being Harden.

    ReplyDelete
  64. 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.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Also Durant might get arthritis from his shooting/dunking arm

      Delete
    2. Tell Bev to run into him ..

      Delete
  65. 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.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree. He tried. That is what matters. U can't never fault a player for giving it all.

      Delete
    2. He did his best under the circumstances.

      Delete
    3. 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.

      Delete
    4. He just couldn't play thru the pain. I think he will be out on Monday.

      Delete
    5. Still no games missed this whole season! Khuang got his wish

      Delete
  66. lol khuang called it. fake tough guy durant gunned for lin instead of beverley.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 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.

      Delete
    2. 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.

      Delete
    3. same shit happened in new york.

      won't stick up for an asian, get used to it.

      Delete
    4. Only Garcia seems to be willing to get in KD's face. Definitely keep him, Morey.

      Delete
  67. Another cheapass rip-through foul by Durant. I'm so sick of seeing that shit every time he's on the floor.

    ReplyDelete
  68. LMAO, loved TJones reaction to that foul on Garcia.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Where is our superstar harden?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Done with this game. Hope they at least make it respectable.

    ReplyDelete
  71. 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 !

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 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).

      Delete
    2. love the Piston team from the 80's.. they played rough but fair.. they make you earn the basket..

      Delete
  72. 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 +

    ReplyDelete
  73. 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.

    1. 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.

  74. 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

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 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.)

      Delete
    2. 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!

      Delete
    3. Sorry you had to see that KD/ JLin BS, HY...

      [Yeah, hold up the sign anyways.]
