    This isn't all on Lin. He looks terrible yes, but this is mostly due to the play of the tin foil fake "star" that never gives a grain on the defensive end and sometimes on the offensive end. Dude just gives up sometimes and it is worrying. You don't win championships like that Haren.

    Could be it.

    Or it could be one of those nights after a brutal schedule, on the road, against a good team.

    He does it just about every night. I was a big Harden supporter, but the rockets' success takes priority, and its obvious that he's hampering it.

    None at all. Like I said, you guys are delusional. I gave him credit when he played well recently. You see what you want to see because your worship the guy

    Loss isn't just on Lin. We got smoked by 30 so the team in general was terrible. It's just hilarious that this is the lineup that Bev was criticized for not guarding. Jeremy got worked just as bad

    Its not a bad feature tbh, makes the GARM more readable and I approve of you using it. btw, I just noticed the typo in my post.

    It was supposed to say "Hampering the rockets' success on nights like this."

    Pretty true statement tbh.

    How many times do you have to repeat this? Injury. Bev's first game started back from injury was 1-9 or 1-10.

    Jeremy definitely did not have a good night. OKC in general was on fire and what the heck on Durant...did he ever miss???

    King1, iz zat u?

    after tonight's game . . . Lin needs to be shipped ... :( sadly. I was hoping for 2nd half comeback. 4th Q Harden resting, I see Lin. Now is time to go HAM . . . . pfft... sizzles out...

    Lin Not Cutting it. Bevs Not Cutting it. AB is OK for spurts. Canaan looks so small out there, much like AB. We have a PG problem contrary to what McHale says of having 2 starting PGs.

    Do the Rockets beat Memphis on Thursday and NO last night without Lin stepping it up in the 4th? Don't think so. Tonight Harden scored 8, Lin scored 6, Dwight scored 9 and TJ scored 2. The starters couldn't get started tonight. So they had abysmal games. Just throw it away. Parker had the same type of game against the Rockets and the next game scored over 20.

    CF members going on about Lin about this game are showing who they are. Lin does need to get it going though and he will. The games are further apart and the matchups favor the Rockets from here until they have to play OKC again.

    I dont see why he wouldn't. They wont be playing b2b during the playoffs.

    Are you simply overreacting over this one bad game where all the starters played like ass? or what makes you question his toughness?

    you people are ridiculous. you only feed LOFs credibility when there is an accurate critique for lin.

    it was a bad game for everyone. 4 games in 5 nights is tough.

    bev is good because he's consistent. his highs aren't as high, but his lows arent as low. he seems to cap out at 25 minutes played. the consistency is why mchale likes the guy.

    lin definitely has a higher ceiling but he does make some costly mistakes.

    lin should get starter minutes (30 minutes), but come off the bench for the first quarter due to fit issues (easier to stagger lin and harden, helps keep the offensive momentum up when some of the bench is on the floor).

    he isn't a star like tony parker or chris paul, but he is an above average point guard. he is an impact player.

    im sick of the LOFs and LOHs drastically distorting the conversation into absurdity.
