    Nope. We got back to beardball next game. Our coaches really suck.

    I'd rather have the wins, I'm not too worried about Lin doing Linsanity again...

    I guess it's nice to know he can replicate what he did last year.

    We will get wins if Linsanity and Harden can mesh.
    Unfortunately, if Harden takes all the shots and plays isoball this will never work.

    His effort is everywhere on the court.
    Lin is playing like a superstar tonight.

    The problem is not the offense with or without harden. It is the defense.

    Only 1 other player in NBA history has scored 38, with 7 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals against the Spurs? Wanna guess who it was?...Jordan

    Yup. Parsons must be injured still. His defense just isn't there right now. injured Parsons + our normal Patterson means our defense is a sieve.

    will get wins if the defense is better.

    offense was fine with harden handling the ball

    Nope, it's definitely Harden.

    Harden is the reason Lin doesn't attack the basket, the reason the team is bad at defense (he told the team not to play defense tonight against the Spurs whiles he watched from the bench).

    In fact, last night when I stumped my toe and I was sure Harden moved my furniture.

    But in all seriousness. We are making young team mistakes, and it will take time for Lin and Harden to mesh.

    Let's not get crazy now, Harden is still a great piece for the team.

    I also think Lin's shooting woes were holding him back but you are definitely right. I mean, they basically admitted as much.
    Not sure why they refuse to have Jeremy, the PG, handle the ball a bit more than Harden when it's beneficial for BOTH.

    Linsanity never left, the coaches never gave him a chance after the first 2 games of the season.

    Linsanity was the combination of winning and Jeremy playing good, so we are not yet there
