  2. JLin apparently not even dressed for tonight's game. His injury must be bad.

  3. Freaking tnt. .. Did the game start?

  4. HY - $1k for a lifetime of memories, and how you color it will remain in your heart. You said hi to his parents ... how many of us can say that? You know as a Chinese that meeting someone's family is very important to know a person. We aren't just western people where family ties are not so meaningful.

    As for this game, it'll be fun now matter now it comes out. Big J is a passenger now, and he can rest. Maybe he can come out in crutches after Harden is ejected :-)

    Stu - thanks for your good Doc comments along the say from knee input months ago to this. Yeah, I can't see how that hard a hit can recover in 4 days, and then you have the office politics.

    Everybody else, let's have fun. I saw a lot of GSW this weekend, and wow on what more balanced team ball meant. Jack had some close iso moves, but he is nowhere as TO prone or sticky ball as Harden. It's nice GSW is peaking now, and funny how the rivers of life just move people past each other. Would have been nice for Lin to be with Curry, Barnes, and Bogut/Lee. Jack of course would not be there in my fantasy, but he's playing well, as is Landry.

    1. Very good point. While it's definitely disappointing not to get to see him play it's still a memorable experience.

      Hope you were able to make the best of trip and had some fun outside of the games!

  5. I think Jeremy might play, at later stage, probably with limited minutes, lets see.

    4. I hope not...jeremy shld not sacrifice himself again for this undeserving team and ungrateful houston fans...though i want to see him play, i'd rather not so this game can prove that without him, this team is garbage ...lin shld rest and get the last laugh

      Really sorry but spend your time staring at him..to me, that will be worth every penny spent...no kidding

    6. I don't mind the suit, why is he wearing glasses?

    7. @ABC Baller, because he needs to?? LOL. when he doesn't play bb, he wears glasses more often.

  9. Screw McHale. Thankless monster. It was his decision to bench Jeremy tonight. This game means nothing. He could have let Jeremy play. even just to acknowledge that he gave 100 percent this season and helped the team at critical moments. I am tuning out. Go OKC!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm confused . Jeremy lin in suit? then why is he on the players' list ??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think Lin may only have one suit. Keeps wearing the same one.

      Delete
    2. Maybe it's a lucky suit... Not sure why he would need it?? Maybe so that he will be traded if they win

      Delete
    3. LOL, normally when one gets a favorite suit, they would get an extra one or two of those as well.

      Delete
    4. Not fave but lucky so u dont need another one....in fact for more superstitious people, they dont even wash it...having another one defeats the purpose but i dont personalky believe in luck and im sure jeremy doesnt believe it either

  11. I hope they play well and then Lin gets traded. Please please play well.

    1. If your theory is right, then i would cheer for houston to win, but it will be very difficult to do cuz i really hate this team bc of mchale and fans

    2. same. they screwed him the whole year. i like garcia, delfino, t jones and greg smith mostly.

      Lin on Lakers would be awesome. Everything is perfectly aligned - but then I guess a career for Lin NYC was there for the taking and it never happened due to Melo/Smith/WWW/ and Grunwald and owner

      Delete
    3. I have the same thought. This is what McHale/Morey needs to convince Les to let Lin go because the Rox can win without him. Every one will be happy, Rox fans and Lin Fans.

      Delete
    4. When kobe got hurt, espn commentators said that LA is planning to release players with huge contracts..they said that kobe will most likely to stay despite injury,houston is still after DH but said it is unlikely they will let him go, the most likely player to be let go is gasol and houston can trade both lin and asik for gasol... This is the opinion of espn guy( dont know his name)..take note, this happened right before the playoffs and right after kobe was injured..if rockets win, this might come into reality

      Delete
  12. Morley desperately wants DW and needed to show him that Rox has one other star. Thats why Lins minutes were reduced and why Harden will continue iso tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Get off with a good start.
    The refs are making the call.

    ReplyDelete
  14. wow the rockets are playing much better without lin

    1. Another TO by Harden. Same ass move every time. Yup, he will never be reprimanded by his coach for doing such move. If Lin goes on a selfish mode like that then McSimpleton will call him out.

  21. I predict rockets get beaten ad BEV outplayed and foul trouble all night!

  23. I think today Harden would break his TO record.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I guess now that Lin isn't in the game today, the refs decided to blow alot more whistles in Houston's favor.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Alright, I'm gonna nap. Enjoy this game everyone.

  26. Lin is even on the bench now ?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think OKC will give this ti houston and end the series at oklahoma...there, they will defeat rockets by blowout and rockets will be humiliated...if i was right, i hope lin wont play next game orherwise he will be blamed for the loss, as always

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We can't worry about what others think. If it turns out that way, (win with no Lin and loss with Lin) it is a perfect story for McHale/Morey to convince Les to let Lin go. I am all for this if it happens. Everyone will be happy, Rox fans and Lin fans.

  28. Harden is in a shooting slum while Garcia is almost hitting his 3s

  29. Man, this is frustrating to watch. Harden is no superstar. Even Durant does not look so impressive. If Jeremy could be allowed to orchestrate, wed have a different series.

    1. And if he plays poorly and they think they can win without him...then they'll trade him.

      And if he plays well and leads a series comeback...then they'll give him more control.

      It's win-win if they extend the series.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, hope they win, for JLin's sake.

      Delete
    3. U people are fucking retarded. If the Rockets win tonight, the LOH will be extremely happy because it proves they can win without Lin.

      The Rockets aren't winning this series even with RWB out. The Thunder are GOOD. watch some other NBA teams besides Jeremy Lin.

  39. My prediction is OKC will lose by intention and get this series back to oklahoma....houston fans can rejoice that this team is so good without lin but watch how they lose in OKC...and again, i hope lin wont have anything to do with next game...with said, i'll see u all tmrw ...

      Redking...am i an embarassment? Who are u to say that? Not even lin would say that to me??? Get out!!!after the game, how many more of you here now consider the thunder did not play as hard as the first 3 games??Do u really think that rocket is that good to win without jlin or thunder is too bad a team to win against a lin-less rocket???if you have something positive to say, try rewiording yr statement bc it only shows your poor mentality..i

      Delete
    6. Redking...pls be reminded that i'm the only one even before the start if Q2 predicted rockets will win, whether it was intentional lise by okc or not, i stll got it right..i had the balls to speak up my mind and that isnt being dumb... That's why asians are foreseen and perceived as weak, if your opinion is out of the norm, u think it is better to shut up abd let someone say it for u to avoid being branded as stupid( like people ur mentality do) but i aint that person...that's how u earn respect...try doing that in this forum, although being tough doesnt happen overnight and toughness and smartness shld go hand in hand ti be effective... The latter is something u need more time to work on, not sure if that is possible

  74. Lets see, Jackson and fisher combine for 17 pt, BEV and brooks for 9, that's a mismatch when fisher scored as much as Bev and brooks combined. How the f**k commentators think BEV playing great, smh, and one assist and 1 fouls. That's why we gotta to hope Lin gets to play one a team that just let him play to his strength by simply play pg and just get his stats up because only stats earn respect IMO.

    4. Lol you make their org sound so east coast/government management mentality...Top down.

  79. Watching rox is too much drama - problem with organization. Hope he's traded next season. This game just shows without the Lin glue and mindshare he demands of the defense, Rox are easy pickin's.

    I'm with everybody who wants a trade this summer.

    ReplyDelete


  80. Hoping that these coming next season

    1.Mchate will be going out for rox as a coach
    .2. Or Lin will be traded to any teams
    Lin for al jeferson is fine..
    or lin to the lakers if d'antoni will have the chance to stay.

    3. That the houston fans will love and support lin unconditionally and will not criticize him whatever games he will going to perform..


    But for now... they are done.

    If not lin will come and shine on the 5th game of this series and RISE!!!!!!

  81. Anybody believe McFail will have a game plan and make some adjustments during half time or is it going to be more Harden time? I believe a leopard will never change its spots just like McFail will never change what he believes is his bread and butter. EXCEPT, this is the PLAYOFFS coach. Playoffs. Teams know what are your tendencies and will try to neutralize it. Players wear down from the long season. We have seen evidence of this since the collapse and the losing streak starting with Phoenix, LA and then OKC.
