    did you watch the 2 home games? how did we lose those two when we supposed to win those home games? NO DOUBLE TEAM ADJUSTMENTS and Harden didn't play his best.

    what do you mean "may." If we don't win the championship, you could conclude that Lin lost us the championship with those plays.

    Lin lost us the game, it is what it is.

    I really hope he doesn't play for the rest of the series.

    We're down 3-1, winning game 5 hopefully, we still have a chance to force game 7. We won in Portland, it can be done again.

    This playoff round must be FANTASTIC for LOH LOF HOF HOH and HOP (house of prime rib) and whatever other acronyms this forum seems to love making up. While enjoying or perhaps instead of enjoying these great games, they get to look for every opportunity to make hateful post about Harden or Lin over and over and over, without anything constructive, illuminating or of any interest besides the pleasure of trolling and hating.

    Hate away you HOFLOHHOFasdfkjasldkjf, but you guys are missing the best series thus far.

    McHale should have called a ****ing timeout. Never had let Lin allowed to try to take it upon himself.

    Goddmanit. This hurts so bad.

    really? the coach clearly has a better view of the court than the players, right? since he could, he should, right?

    They teach NERD stuff like mathematics and economics or post modern stuff. Only LOSERS get interested in things like that. Trust me.

    Lin playing like trash aside, the truth is, the rockets fold under pressure. If Howard and Harden aren't going to be the leaders, the coach has to.

    So whose fault it is that the Rockets let LMA make history? Did Lin defend him? May as well blame it on Lin too if it makes people feel better.

    Scared ball? Missing shots means you're scared? Whatever.

    Game 1: Harden hits 2 free throws with 7 seconds to go to put Rockets up 2. Rockets force a miss, but give up two offensive rebounds (Bev lost track of Lillard on the first one--that was the play we needed).
    Game 2: never had the lead in the 4th quarter
    Game 3: Win
    Game 4: Harden hits 2 free throws with 50 seconds to go to put Rockets up 2. Rockets force miss, Lin gets rebound, instead of calling timeout as the coaches told them to (according to McHale), he dribbles around and turns it over, leads to 3. That was the play we needed.

    One rebound from Bev in game 1, and one timeout from Lin in game 4 (plus we would have had to make free throws probably), and the series is very easily 3-1 Rockets headed back to Houston to close it out. Sometimes there's a small margin for error.

    We'll get the next three. Mo lit up Harden (after talking smack at the end). Watch Harden and Lin go nuts on next game.
