    Wish McHale would consider putting Cisco out there for defense...spread the floor.

    He can play Batum or Matthews and has been good against bigs.

    He's rotting on the bench.

    Let's be honest, Lin hasn't been atrocious except for the last minute of the last 3 games. If McHale would just sit him down for the final minute or so there'd be no problem.

    was really amazed given that Lin got fouled bringing the ball up court too, usually the refs find a way to add insult to injury.

    Nice series of possesions but Harden is not being a problem for Portland. Lin and Parson can only hold you up for so long.

    Glad to see Lin and the Rockets D finally show up. Need to keep this up but the key will be that McHale well need to play more than just 8 men tonight in order to keep this up for the rest of the game.
