    If that's the recipe for your playoff success. I would take an open lay up from anyone than Harden contested step back.

    You mean the same one he had to go 1v4 with and the bricked with no pressure that led directly to a 3 point shot to tie the game on the OTHER end? :rolleyes: Yup, great success!

    So you prefer the one after that where Harden had the last possession in OT but turned the ball over. He was lucky Lin bailed him out with the pass to Daniels for the win. Clutch.

    It was good look too bad he bricked it.
    It was definitely a higher percentage shot than a Harden contested step back.

    And the clutch TO in OT that nobody wants to remember.

    It's bad offense even in NBA2K.

    How many times can we talk about those two plays? The other being the Mo Williams steal.

    It happens. In the NBA finals Irving pulled the same rushed layup attempt Lin did. Players make mental mistakes here and there.

    Is Lin turnover prone and could stand to improve that and make better decisions directing his aggression and attacking game? Yes. In fact he has this past season.

    However dwelling on two plays, when the fact is other players including Harden played like crap for most of that doomed series, is neither productive nor honest.

    A lot went wrong in that series. It wasn't all on Lin. It wasn't even mostly on Lin. The only guy on the Rockets who played consistently well and with fire iirc was Howard.

    I am not the one that keeps trying to defend a boneheaded play that could have costed us as some sort of smart play nor am I the one trying to pass off a pass to an unproven rookie over a mismatched (in his favor) Dwight Howard right at the rim. :rolleyes:

    Not clutch. It was another stupid decision that happened to work out in his favor. If Daniels bricked the three, we would have been having a totally different discussion on what a dumbass Lin was for not passing to Dwight or setting up an alley oop. It's only because Lin got lucky and TD made the three that we are even talking about that play positively.

    What Harden does right in games typically far outweigh what he does wrong. If it wasn't for Harden, we would have been a lottery team. The same can never be said about Lin.

    I am not the one that blame the series on 2 questionable plays.

    If Jeremy Lin signs with a team called "Life" and gets benched,

    Lin fans will hate Life

    Jerry is the Kunta Kinte of the basketball world, one of the greatest talents ever but wrongly persecuted because of his racial diasporistis.

    But like all true Dragonball Z inflatable collectibles, many of them married to the people relating to his struggle, he will rise above it all to bring redemption and salvation to the tiny wang community, his hair rising fully erect without the help of gel as a salute to the heavens.

    We are looking at the greatest American story ever told , one Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn would salivate at the chance to write about.

    If you watched that play, you would see a Portland defender jumping up in front of Dwight; had Lin tried to make that pass, it would have been deflected or intercepted. So the choice he made to pass to the open player (who happened to be the best 3pt shooter on the team) was the right one.
