Jeremy, just have a good game.That's all i want for him.
I hope he doesn't get himself hurt again, we all know OKC are a bunch of thugs who will throw elbows and fists because they can get away with it ... and at the other end they fake flop.
We just need a win.. I hope Lin doesnt hurt himself.. and play wisely
Unbelievable game between boston and ny. Very exciting to watch. I hope i can be as excited watching houston vs okc
Watching that game too. Pacers move on to round 2. I'm preserving my chocolate milk for Jeremy's game
You are funny! Honestly, i'm secretely wishing NY lose. I guess i'm not over jeremy not being offered by knicks.It has a lot to do with my frustration with rockets team.
Celtics lose.I sure hope Paul George and company defeat the Knicks
We got Hubie and Mike Tirico. Love hearing Hubie - Jlin always performs well in front of him.
Asik would destroy Perkins..
This game is getting ugly this early. I hope jeremy doesn't get hurt.
Throw out Perkins!
Throw mchale in and he be hurt...JK
Lol Asik fighting off Perkins
Why did Lin go to lockerroom?
Maybe got scared of the early altercation..he thought i need to be ready for this and need time to pray...lol
Lin went to the locker room?
Might be suiting up to play?
Could be.Because of the Knicks game, the start time was delayed. So he probably didn't get dressed since he didn't know when the game would start. You want that sore spot iced as long as possible.
OKC looks like they are pressing too much.
Looks like they're in for a fight...
Royce White is right. OKC looks SCARED.
Geez KD doing everything now on his own
This game can't get me excited without lin on the court..That's what u get for being a LOF...
When do u think mchell will bring lin in? Anyone??
We have to be wise about that.. we are playing well so far
Once Jeremy goes in, Thunder defense will go attack him.will attack his damn chest.
Thats why we have to be wise giving him minutes.. I dont want him to worsen his injury.. I want him fully fit
Exactly. That's why people need to RELAX. If they don't need Jeremy...GOOD. He can rest up for Game 7 or the next series. OKC looks out of whack...they will play dirty if Jeremy comes in.
I hope the Rockets extend the lead so Lin might not have to play until garbage time or none at all.OKC is looking for blood and being physical to get themselves in the game.
Where da hell in Lin? Don't see him on the bench.
He ran back to the training room.
Sad to say but actually happy to say--looks like Lin is expendable the way the Rox are playing at a high level without him. So, although it makes me sick to my stomach that Lin's not able to contribute, the more he is marginalized, the more likely he'll be traded in the off season. Hopefully, to the Lakers where he will be welcomed with open arms!
Yeah Spencer, am praying he plays for the Lakers. Then I can buy season tix.
Interestingly it was the Lakers who first scouted him.
Thunder will go on a big run once Lin comes in
There he is!!!
BOOM.Here we go. Just hold down the fort. Stay safe.
Lin is in!!!
Lin is in with 2:32!Let's pray for his safety. OKC is thirsty with blood.
Here it comes
Watching the replay of Perkins and Garcia, I think Perkins should have been shameless and just hug Garcia from behind
Lin comes in .. Noone knows what da hell they are doing..
Pass the ball harden jeez
Hack asik part 2 coming up?
why is it that whenever Lin is in the game, Harden goes ISO? so damn annoying.
okay everyone sees know that Hogden hates Lin? its more than obvious. totally in Hog mode since lin is in...
Lol Harden sigh...
Anyone ever notice every time Lin steps on the court Harden tries too hard?
well he has to, lin in = 4v5 right now
I was abt to write that... IDK if he is trying to compete against jeremy or hecisctrying to impress him?Also, he goes iso ball more when lin is in
Interesting... 4 people having the same observation at the same time....it means we all saw something so obvious...
It's like 4 on 5 .., Lin is just standing around..
He did contest Fisher's missed three.That's about it so far.
Nah, it's 5-on-Harden right now.He has to stop hogging it...Jesus, what is his problem???
Harden ISO and bad D stopping Houston's momentum.
Nice Harden just bumps Lin in chest.
Lin moves perfectly fine but the son of w whore harden doing his thing again, freezing out lin
Stupid HardenBad feeling about this game.
Seriously, what's the point of having Lin in the game anyway. It's all iso- Harden
He is single handedly giving up the lead, gave away 3 possessions in a row wtf.
ISO harden back again.
What a waste of minutes..
what a fucking asshole harden is jeez
whenever they go really small with 3 guards lineup, Harden is the one who plays PG? wth is that?
STUPID HARDEN 4 POSSESSIONS IN A ROW.
DAMN IT HARDEN.
Da FUQ!? That so not cool Harden
Please please play with the Lakers, Jazz or anyone but the Rockets.
If they are gonna use Lin like this.. Then just sit him... This is ridiculous
up to Lin to make movement.. frustrating to see him just standing there.. might as well sit down
Is it by design or its it Lin?
Yeah, that's what I thought exactly. Even Fisher gets more touches. He's just an extra body right now, that's all, the way Rockets are using him. Told you many times that as long as Lin plays with Harden, Lin's game will not improve. Rockets are going to depend on Harden for at least several years.
Its by design, when Harden goes iso everyone just scoots out of the way or stand on the perimeter.
"up to Lin to make movement.."Uh, no it's not...Harden's just ISO-ing for 24 seconds.
Did they just call AB Marshon Brooks?
Lin absolutely invisible so far. Has hardly touched the ball. He's just a body out there right now.
He didn't even have a chance to touch the ball.Come on man! He is a point guard.
I just started watching the game. Has Harden been iso'ing the entire quarter? Harden and Garcia are the only players with 2 assts each; has there not been much ball movement?
The ball was moving, then Lin came in and Harden stopped passing the ball.4 possessions in a row in 2 minutes he played heroball and threw away, Rox was ahead by 11 at one point, just 3 now.
Not really, in fact to me, he was giving the ball a lot to PB until lin came in... He went berserk going to iso mode
Lol he gives defenders all day to read him and tries to pass it off with a defender a step away from his passing lane. NO DUH YOU GET ROBBED.Stupid Harden.
I really hope Jeremy finds a team. He just isn't being allowed to do affect the game the way he is capable of.
Lin added nothing to the offense. Da fuq..
Nobody added anything to the offense, man.Harden just held the ball for the final 4 possessions.
Mchale: hey jeremy, when you are in, just make sure you stand in the corner and don't do anything more. This will confuse the thunders.
Lin didn't take a single shot. Fouled Collison on a fast break. No affect on the game. The only time Harden passed to Jeremy, it's stolen by Kevin Martin. Ugh.
Beverly needs to stop fouling 40 feet away from the basket.
Alright what's the vendetta on Jeremy when he's on court?geez insecurity much Harden? can't take it that Jeremy plays better than you? Some Houston fans are calling for Phil Jackson to come to Houston instead of Toronto. If that happens PJ will ask his protege HC to sit down Harden's ballhogging arse
Lin still scared to shoot.. Please cut that out next season..
Lol Parsons/Brooks owned by Fisher.Sad.
Lin made Reggie traveled! lol
Jeremy great D :)
Ouch Lin.. That sucked.. Waited too long to shoot.
Ouch lol dunno what Lin was tryin there, he shouldn't of stopped on the initial move to the basket and should have just layed it up.
Looks like he's afraid to go to the rim and get contact. Everybody seems afraid of getting hit inside.
Lin got hard smacked by Collison, nobody say anything
Lin looks rusty,he is going to bench soon.
Yeah, had a shot but missed the chance.
WTF was that Lin
OK, Harden out, Lin is in, but he defers to Aaron Brooks.
Lin done. What is his +/-? Wait.. Don't wanna know..
Lin can't hesitate to shoot.Good D so far so he's not a liability on D.He needs to lead the 2nd team while Harden and Durant are on the bench.
Lol yeah...Parsons handles = suckLin needs to stop passing the ball off at the first sight of blue, and not hold back and play. He is playing too careful and producing like a 3rd stringer and did he just get blown by?
He needs to play with Fisher's intensity.
Haha everybody plays like shit especially Bieber who completely freezes out lin( thought they were friends?) Lin gonna get yanked wanna bet?
Annddd out lin goes
No confidence. He's scared of messing up. Another blown opportunity. Maybe everyone's right about him, maybe he's just not that good.
It's back to the start of season.
And maybe you're just INSECURE. Let the man play through his injury before trashing his whole damn career.
Said who? This game will not gauge lin's greatness as a player. He has proven himself to those who really saw his games in regular season and not just look at boxscore...
No confidence. He's scared of messing up. Another blown opportunity. Maybe everyone's right about him, maybe he's just not that good.
No 31f, it's just you being a troll again.
YEESS!!! He is not just that good but GREAT!!how about that? Agreed?
I'm sick of Lin's hesitation on his outside shot. God damn it shoot it when you have the outside shot!! Stop hesitating and showing absolutely no confidence. Sorry to say but Lin looks completely awful like he's psyched himself out and is playing scared. What the hell is wrong with him. I think he'll be sitting on the bench now for awhile! Wake up Jeremy!
I hope Lin stops passing and start making plays. No harden so no excuses of him not scoring.
Lin giving the haters everything they want to see. I'm very disappointed that he's back to playing scared again.
yep.. 100% agree
If he was going to play like this, he should've just sat. All momentum evaporated when he came in - I'm not saying Lin was the reason but I hate the coincidence..
i'm with you Solidz
Knock it off ... he's coming back from injury. Did you see GSW fans talk like you when David Lee showed up for a couple of minutes?
Oh please, pansies. Stop worrying about haterade peer pressure. Just ENJOY THE GAME.
They barely even gave him the ball. But yeah, he was just passing the ball rather than shooting or driving it.
Didn't u see? Harden was the reason. I think he messed up the offensecon purpose when lin came in, trying to prove a point
ABC BallerMay 3, 2013 at 7:38 PMLin giving the haters everything they want to see. I'm very disappointed that he's back to playing scared again.

Bev cannot penetrate.
Martin dominates Parsons
I hope people aren't blaming Lin for HOU losing the lead. OKC's players are starting to hit their outside shot...
They are adjusting to Rox pace.Starters (rox) are in an uphill battle now, esp with Harden pissing away the lead.
LOL Solidz you are a LOH, just fucking admit it allready
Yup u got me...
UGH.Jeremy didn't really do anything wrong. Missed a shot but played good defense (forced a travel). His teammates just screwed up around him, missed FTs for example.And Harden's ISO ruined the momentum at the end of the 4th.
Lin's defense was good when he played.
The second unit does not move their body as well. One of the main reason we lost the 1st 3 games.
Beverley with two bad misses. Does he think he's a superstar now?
Jackson owns Bev
Reggie Jackson scoring at will vs Beverley lol
Lin was doing a much better job stopping Jackson.
Nice 3 over Fisher by parsons.And Martin owns that azz again
The reasons the lead disappeared:1) Harden ISO.2) K-Martin finally hitting some shots.3) Missed FTs.
4) Nick Collison playing instead of Perkins.
5) Lin entered the game.
Wow Jackson owns Parsons 1 on 1...
This doesn't look good, the guys are taking bad shots.R. Jackson and Martin going off.
Rockets starters crumbling like I predicted...
Refs are now helping OKC win too.
Beverley playing with 2 points & 3 fouls?lol
Bev just loves reachin' in and gambling for steals. That's how his "defense" is superior to Lin.
His # of fouls is superior to Lins.
Lol Reggie Jackson is Bev's antisis.
Garcia always helps when we need it most.
LOH will blame Lin but Asik is letting Collison get rebounds over him and Beverley is playing stupid.Rockets have no offensive sets, as usual, but are hitting their 3s.
Harden really screwed up.He completely gave the momentum back to OKC with his lazy defense and 4-straight ISOs. He should have fed Jeremy to get him going...but he was so damn selfish that he gave OKC hope again.
I don't think Lin was scared but it looks like the chemistry just dissolved when Lin came in. I can't explain it but people just started playing away from what was working before.
well, some of that was because of harden tho
Yes as soon as Lin came in, harden went iso...wtf
Lin's: yes master.
Garcia puttin in work!
Jlin can't afford to play conservatively.. like he's playing within himself.. this is the playoff "go hard or go home"
I told you guys once Kmart starts hitting his shots the Rockets will be in trouble.
Idiot Hubie Brown: "Taking advantage of Lin, now Brooks."Uh, he scored one bucket in three tries on Lin. Also made an ugly travel TO. It's everyone else Jackson is beasting against.Lin always gets blamed even when's he's not on the court!
you mean hubie brown or mike turico?
hahahahahahahahahahaha the anger is strong with this one
yeah heard that.. unBEVlievable !
Lol easy there man...This is just the same crap Lin gets day in day out.Lin stopped RJ on every drive/play except one off a PnR.
Yeah, that was Hubie Brown.What an idiot. Jackson had 1 bucket in three tries against Lin (off a good screen). He's been roasting Bev and Brooks at will, though.
Maybe try Lin on R. Jackson? He's bigger and can go one on one with him.
Yeah, but Lin is not doing anything on offense, he's not trying to score.
Lol crumble like cookies...Nice pass Asik.They let RJ and Martin get hot.
Damn Rockets just standing around playing 1 on 1
Jeremy on court is playing 1 vs 9. Jeremy vs Thunder and Rox on the floor lol
This game is fine for Lin. Cements the fact that he will not be back (which would be a great success). But, if Bev keeps fouling every 10 seconds then they may want to keep Lin.
So you're fine with Lin wasting an entire season on an ungrateful team ? He's going to be treated worse than Tebow on his next team.
Bev gamble's a little too much with the reach ins
why is Lin so badly misused????whyyy??? he played spot up shooter for 4 minutes while watching bitchden go iso... how do they expect him to contribute in any way like that??? ah its so fucking wrong get the fuck away from redneck twon lin. for your own good. Defense was good as allways though. if lin Lin doesnt have pain he could play 30 minutes WTF?!!!
Damn is that all they can do? Shoot 3's?
we've got no one attacking penetrating besides harden.
the rim, not penetrating.
Heh McFail finally realizes Brooks/Bev can't take RJ...Lin on RJ now.
ok, Lin to Harden, ramp it up slow.
only Lin can defense IN pg OKC
Is the tide turning... Jlin is controlling the tempo in offense..
