    I don't think it's a Lin thing but more of a point guard thing. I don't think McFail respects the position. Look at last season with Kyle and Dragic last season...the coach kneejerks back and forth till both got fed up.

    Lin didn't play too bad tonight. He got 5 assists, 2 out of 2 from 3 point land, and 50% FG overall. He held his own but he didn't have the intensity tonight. In that 3rd quarter, he was getting stuck in traffic, missing most of his shots, he was trying but nothing was happening. No use beating a dead horse he's obviously spent either from his ankles or just out of it.

    Golden State is going to lose. Good night for us. Let them and the Jazz worry about the Lakers.

    It is pretty weird. I remember when we started Lin was red hot and even drained 2 3s

    THE magic shot like doodoo in the 4th and that wasn't Bev. Bev played great in the 4th but something is very wrong in the 2nd and 3rd Q'a

    It has nothing to do with injury. this has been Lin's strange subbing pattern for the whole season so far and there's no explanation for it.

    its pretty obvious Mchale is sabotaging him. he even said that he doesn't want Lin on the team.

    It happens. Aaron Brooks got benched for Lowry who got benched for Dragic.

    Bev was playing too well to be taken out at that point.

    We didn't have a matchup problem this game to close out the game, because ORL was playing tinyball. ORL was running a lineup of Udrih, Moore (small combo guard very undersized for 2), Afflalo (undersized SG, definitely undersized for 3, he's smaller than even Courtney Lee), Harris (tweener forward), and Vucevic.

    Delfino's actually has a substantial size advantage matching up against either Udrih, Moore, or Afflalo, while Parsons is very slightly bigger than Harris.

    LOL.

    About the only positive to take away from this game is that we played our D game and still won, albeit against a terrible opponent. Aaron Affallo is their top scorer....

    You can try to make a case when Beverley stinks up the joint, but he totally turned the game around. He was disruptive on defense and he knocked down big shots.

    It isn't a matter of trust in the guy he replaced... it's a matter of actual performance. Beverley got things going. McHale would not be doing his job if he didn't stick with results there in the fourth.

    I don't mind this if the coach is consistent....McFail still benches Lin many times when he was on a roll.

    Stop talking about the PG's... Tonight the problems were the PF position... The PG's played okay!
