    Must have been all of those Turnovers that got him benched...and the fact that he was making our Dynamic Power Forward duo look bad by out rebounding both of them, that combined with leading the team in assists will get your butt nailed to the pine every time...

    He is saying LOHs can't blame this game on Lin (I think)

    yeah, 1pt shy... :(. I think during the game, they dont have really concerns on stats and records. Heck, I bet Harden dont even know he is just 1 pt. off. What they are concerned of is How to Win.

    It was a great thing to do as well.

    Don't reward him for that, just by doing that you say it's fine to go after your stats even if the team loses.

    On to Philly. The Rockets will get their game back soon. Costly FT's. I can't wait till the team can get some real practice time and get all the loose ends tighten up. The team is still lacking a PF that can rebound and block shots. Morris is playing out of position and Patterson wan everyones answer but Scola should've been kept instead oh well.

    Did none of the LOF's watch the game? We cut the lead down to 2 with TD in the game. That is why Lin was on the bench. :rolleyes: Tell me why you would change the lineup with that momentum. You go with the lineup that's working, and honestly McHale has been very loyal to Lin these past few games including last game where he stunk up the joint.

    Raskol also says Harden is the ballhog to blame every time Jeremy doesn't score 20.

    I can't wait till Tommy Heinson the drunkest, dumbest announcer in sports history retires or kicks.

    God that was hard to listen to.

    The Rockets did not lose because Lin only played 33 minutes. Hell it was a 2 point game in the 4th with Douglas on the floor.

    The Rockets lost because they were 12/29 from the free throw line, 9/33 from the three point line and failed to dominate in any meaningful category.

    The loss had nothing to do with Lin or Douglas, but rather, a very young team on the road and not focused.

    We really got unlucky running into a Hornets team and Celtics team that both are on a roll at the moment...this would have been a perfect game to give our young guys some minutes especially with a B2B tomorrow...instead we ran our starters into the ground...lets hope for the best tomorrow

    He better not be saying I'm an LOH. I like Lin a lot, one of those sickened by the constant hate on him.

    So I'm not the only one in this forum that notices that WE NEED FREAKING DEFENSE on this team?

    P sure that the main reason rockets lost these 2 games is because they didn't put the ball into the basket enough times.

    I thought Lin's game was solid, it's just that no one at the 4 or 5 is worth a damn. The whole Celtics team can double on anyone.

    We would be out of the playoff picture with a 5 or 6 game losing streak.

    That was a strategic move that worked. The offense was stagnant and we weren't making up any ground. In a game of runs, you have to change up the dynamic - give different looks. TD gives us that luxury. He not only comes in, but he seems to relish his role. He came in and whether it was because of him or not, the Rox came back to within three.

    The other side of the argument is that Lin is not Rondo, nor is he Chris Paul. He's still 24 years old and learning. Lin will get to the point where he can figure out how to better read defenses, and when he does, like Harden does now, the coach will let him play through it.

    As an aside, I like BOTH Jeremy Lin and Toney Douglas.
