    Lin is mentally strong to come back after game 4 with this performance...!!

    the booing didn't make a difference, just showed the lack of class

    I was shocked, I thought I must've had misheard. That boos weren't very loud but noticeable.

    That really impressed me as well. He doesn't let setbacks cloud his mind.

    It was a perfect storm though. Lin had a lot of minutes early on to get going because Bev was sick. That;s the kind of player lin is. He usually has to find his rhythm to get going first. Handle the ball, get into the lane and dish some passes. Hit some open shots. After he was on a groove he changed as a player. He was taking more shots and heat checking a lot. If he can do this off the bench that would be great.

    Have to say Blazers most deadly player is Lillard. Sorry LA - but Lillard can pretty much get to the rim at will and hit someone with an open shot or take a contested 3 and hit that as well. Guy is scary man. Have to respect his game and clutchness. but hopefully our team is MORE CLUTCH and continue to play well.

    he wins game three in o.t, loses game 4, wins game five. all you go to do is win game 6,lin.

    by game seven, harden should be fully awake.

    While I agree with you that he progressively improved last season, but I don't think He is playing consistent this playoff. Lin's game heavily depends on how he is used. If he can have enough play time, and have the ball in his hands, he usually plays better, even with some stupid TOs. But when he was given a short leash, asked to play off the ball more, he usually plays timid, and often results a lot of TOs.

    He is a high risk & high reward player, just not a very good fit for the Rockets, since Harden holds the ball so much.

    I can't believe true rockets fans were booing him when he entered the game. Houston city you disgusted me. You never boo one of your player.

    TMac quit the team. Lin poured his heart and soul into the game, even after the booing.

    Classless and shameless. That's all I can say about those fans who booed. You don't make mistakes in your own life, right?

    Of course we all make mistakes. But if the average person makes as many mistakes as Lin has this year, he gets fired.

    Wow, then this "average person" needs to find a better job. Getting fired might be a blessing in disguise.
