    He made 4 of 5 shots and 11 points in the last 4 minutes and saved our behinds. His problem is h takes to many threes. He went 1-7 from there. Someone needs to tell him he can score at will when he attacks the rim.

    Man that was too close. Cherish every win though, as we've lost many games in this similar situation.

    Dwight had some BIGMAN dunks and his post game overall was dominance. Too many TOs, but 85% FG helps balance everything. Keep doing it man!! T Jones and Parsons both played very well which offset subpar games from Lin and Harden. Rockets are deep enough to overcome mediocre/bad from 2 main players. God bless Garcia, I still think he'll eventually be an asset this season.

    3 game win streak!! Make it 4 tomorrow @OKC.

    Lin has been working his tail off on defense and has been showing great efforts these last few games. But for those of us lucky enough to watch the games and not just check the box scores, it is also clear that the PNR defense has been a lot better. The help defender has been showing hard, giving Lin a chance to recover and get back on his man. So yes, good job on defense Lin. But also, "good job" to the team as well.

    That Kelvin, he's a genius ain't he?

    New Orleans fans blame the FTA 32-8, apparently their coach spoke up about it. Yea it looks like it's one sided, but NO was taking jumpers all night long, nobody drove to the lane.

    It's ez to go for the excuses

    He's probably getting tired after so many back to back games. McHale has been playing Harden, Parsons, and Dwight over 40 minutes a game, because the bench is giving us virtually nothing. That is going to have an effect on their legs. So far, the Rockets have played more games than any NBA team, 32 games, there are still some teams that have only played 27 games.

    Another thing is shot selection, he's taking more jumpers than he has in the Spurs or Grizzlies win.

    7/16 is 44%. That's hardly a terrible percentage. Why should more be made of this?

    The writer is just pissed that his team loss, Lin non-factor? Right he didn't even watch the game and just looked at the score board. Lin/Harden combo pulled off another great 4th quarter win......kudos to the rest of the team for 3/4 of the way, but those 3s by Lin/Harden were deadly. Just another typical LOH writer....

    Holiday just lost to "a" most overrated player in NBA.

    Well Monty did not take a look at the All star ballot.
    Lin is right there with the best guards

    James knows.. he just simply settles for 3's too much. It's easier to jack a jumper, than penetrate. He can take more pressure off himself by letting his carry the load more. And let's be real, James likes to get his even if a poor/though shot. To be fair, he has that unique superstar ability to make poor/tough shots too.

    Does anyone else feel like Jrue Holiday is incredibly overrated? I know he put up All-Star numbers in PHI, but look at that team, someone had to score. Numbers aside, he doesn't pass the eye test for me - not even a second tier PG.

    I think he was just tired. He shot a lot better later in the 4th quarter after a long rest on the bench.

    Apparently some of yall don't know the meaning of TEAM. It isn't about any one player. Be happy for the win instead of ruining the thread.
