    This explanation does not seem to work well with the Rockets. If you count all the +/- scores of the Rockets for the 10 games played, Casspi is way ahead of everybody in the team followed by Lin and Garcia. Consequently the Rockets bench. In other words, it seems to be the bench that keeps the team ahead in the games. It does not mean that they are better players than the starters, but they do their part in the rotation in a way that allows the team to win.

    not really, it only shows that TT does not work... last 10 games we started 8 game with TT... and got blown out at first 6 mins of 6 out of 8 games... then the bench come in with casspi and lin and then we recover...

    First time I ever agreed with Chuck...

    ...was at halftime when he said that Dwight has not improved at all as a player and still didn't know how to post up.

    He's so right. I know it's only been a few games, and Howard's defense and rebounding cannot be denied, but all that work he's supposedly putting in with Dream and McHale doesn't seem to be translating to the court ...yet. I'm hopeful at some point soon things will click, but I worry if what we're seeing is a symptom of someone who will never work hard enough to reach his potential.

    Put simply, Dwight Howard should never be shut down by Andrea Bargnani. Just plain embarrassing.

    And worst of all, he's got me agreeing with Charles freaking Barkely. ******* him for that alone!

    Aruba77, you should check out this site. It's full of hilarious qoutes from Charles Barkley. Every time I see him on television I picture him saying these funny one liners.

    haha classic Lin hater. Just let them have their love. The dude is clearly not hurting the team at this point, let them enjoy the ecstasy while they can. Cause I know we'll be hearing from you if he goes into a slump.

    Where does this we didn't move the ball bull****e come from?. I know lin fans hate harden and are blaming him for this supposed lack of ball movement, but it is bull****e. Go listen to lins post match comments regarding the ball movement and hoe he said we got back to playing unselfish tonight. Parsons and McHale repeated those words as well.

    But yeah Harden is the devile.:rolleyes:

    I'm just reading this NYT articles about Jeremy Lin's return to the Garden.

    A bit harsh on Morey's part, isn't it?

    Knick fans on their board are complaining how they got robbed of a win. They are saying their superstar, Melo is hated by the Refs and if it were Harden he would of given the 4 points.

    They are frustrated and I'm sure if that happened to us we'd be pissed as well. But Harden DID foul when he got the ball, I think there was just a delay of when Harden initially fouled and when the ref blew his whistle. Also according to Avery he said the Rockets told the refs they were going to foul in all situations.

    It is always funny though when Laker and Knick fans complain about calls and hear them talk about how the NBA is out to get them. Especially Laker fans, you'd think Kobe never gets any respect from the refs according to Laker fans.

    .. I'm a Lin fan and I love Harden. What are you saying? Stop instigating. You're going overboard these days.
