Whoa….right at top of P. 125, Clown would not like to read this, oh and look they fight just like us.
You are the person that is stupid for saying that.
Coaches have to draw good plays when it matters most. And if you can't get your players to buy in then you shouldn't be a coach
Explain how you know whether or not he drew up a good play.
Because you hate Mchale and just wanna [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.]?
Our best player shot up an uncontested 3 pointer to tie when we were down by 3. What else do you want?
everyone on this team thinks there are a PG.
There are about 10x more people coming in and blowing up about people blaming Lin than there are people blaming Lin.
Maybe because we lost a game that we should have won and they are pissed. I have been a Rockets fan for 30 years, so I'm not a LOF. I am a Lin fan and I think it's so stupid that people just dog him all of the time.
We all say stupid stuff every know and then because we are fans, but this Lin bashing is more than just saying stupid stuff every now and then.
I would think that real Rocket fans would be very happy to have him on the team, and that they wouldn't always be bashing him.
yes lin is a bit of turnover machine, so is harden, he gets to do whatever he wants, im not saying Lin should get equal treatment, but for what hes produced this year and his salary, he deserves wayyy better
Still the blame it on Lin debate:
Like seriously, nobody is even crapping on him. People are just being mad now for the sake of being mad. Stupid.
You just missed the post. There where a bunch of people saying that Lin is the main reason we lost the game tonight. That's just stupid.
McHale lost this game by not managing minutes and rotations, or game planning at all!
The problem is that even if another scorer isn't needed, why keep Harden out there? He's the biggest defensive liability on the team (partially because he's not fully healthy). Replace him with Lin, who isn't quite the scoring threat but will at least try to play defense. Or Garcia. Or Brooks. Or go big and throw out D-Mo, Asik, anybody else out there.
Didn't we kill Blake for the same outcome?
Beverly is overrated on defence. Guarded Ellis tonight and Ellis went for 37!
OMG you get on my nerves. Why don't you just go date Bev and stop posting. Lin is much better than Bev. Only you, McHale and other racists think otherwise.McHale lost this game by not managing minutes and rotations, or game planning at all!
^^^Dude. You need help.
Ahhh….now we're talking….to the crux of the matter:
comeon rockets fans - for a loss like this - it's gotta be the refs' fault
I mean they didn't call a foul for Harden at the end - that would have given us a chance to tie the game for OT (3 FT)...…
Seems like a constant Lin vs Beverly battle with Rocket Fan
You try to cover up that you dislike Lin and love Bev, but you don't fool me. You only say anything good about Lin to cover up your dislike of him because you only want Bev to succeed because he is your favorite player. That's why you make a big deal out of anyone that defends Lin, whether he is being attacked or not. What's it to you anyway? There are many like you on this board that try to hide their true feelings, but we can see through you.
^^^This is really creepy.
We agree on Asik.....however, the body language is really bad. Morey should trade him. Value will never be better than it was going into this year. Heart is just not in it. Watched him doing a sarcastic laugh and shaking his head on the bench...can't say I blame him but it speaks LOUDLY about where he's at.
I think the blame should go to the coach. You have to show trust in your player and reward him if you want him to perform. Asik has played hard, never missed game, and the coach seriously did not try hard enough to give him playing time.
The TT tower experiment is not a well-designed one. Yeah, it failed the first game. Then you need to tweak that instead of throwing that away all together.
Sounds like Dan last year and Potato before him:
One more point and I am done for the night: McHale is now to ride his stars for long minutes. He is always coaching like if he would lose the job tomorrow if he lost the game today. I would say Asik's situation is made worse by Mchale's poor minute management and lack of vision.
Not a whole lot of the tasty stuff on Clown and the Beard Pecker tonight, but:
sad to say but harden will be the reason this team doesn't win a championship..true superstar player go for the shot not the foul..shame really..
Whoa now they're really pissing Clown off:
^^^He's a #2 on a championship team. Dwight is 2b. We need a Durant or Lebron on the team to be considered contenders.
With "all world defensive anchor" suiting up for you??
I cringe at the thought of what the Timberwolves are gonna do to us on Saturday. They just might break the scoring record
James Harden playing Chase Budinger or Kevin Martin defense?
^^^I get that he wanted a foul call, and should have gotten one for 2 free throws, but the dumb flop head flail as a last second desperation to get a call when it clearly wasn't happening, instead of actually trying to size up a clean look at the basket was what annoyed me.
It's getting to the point where Harden is a liability in end game scenarios, I'm not sure how he just repeatedly clams up and chokes but it seems to happen. I read that he was 2-8 in end of the game attempts when his team is down by 3 or less and that includes that goaltend last year by Jermaine O'neal that should have been taken away. It also doesn't account for situations where he has tried to draw contact and ended up not getting the whistle in those situations which was more than a few times and generally resulted in a turnover. He also missed the free throw that would have in all likely hood sent this game into overtime. I hope he can figure out his mental block, and sooner than later. Margins are too thin in the NBA to lose every close game like we do.
just be glad it was Harden who missed the key free throw, if it was Lin we'd be here for days.
I would call bull bleep on this, but then again Clown didn't yank his shirt off on the floor after Steve Black hit the game winner in his face:
By far the worst loss of the season
Whoa….they are real people just like here at CL:
