Jeremy Lin helps Beardy Defeat Timberwolves (Youtube)

Basically, the Rockets came into the game super slack-sa-daisical and got down 20 to a Timberwolf team without four out of five starters – Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Love, Andrei Kirilenko, and Brandon Roy.

What happened was James Harden decided he wanted to ball out and took over the game, la de dahing himself to 37 points, with an assist from Jeremy Lin’s 24 points, 8 assists, and 4 steals.

So, I think JJ Barea is a pretty amazing player. At 5-11 and muscley, no real vertical (NBA-wise), a semi-set shot, and the guy seems to get into the point and score at will. If I could find video highlights of him from this game, I would embed. I would. Instead, I have to get dressed and go to dim sum.

Jeremy isn’t sick, doesn’t have bum ankle, gets 21 points and 9 assists against Mavericks

After a couple subpar games by Jeremy Lin, he came back with an aggressive approach against the Dallas Mavericks – like a Lion in the year of the Snake!

No longer suffering from the flu and a sprained ankle that he had to deal with over the last week – Jeremy did a lot of good catching up; his shots all seemed to be going in and his passes all seemed like they ended up in an assist. It helps that Chandy Parsons was having a career night, Omer Asik was actually making layups and not just throwing them up there and crossing his big ass fingers, and James Harden seemed cool with taking a back seat as his teammates ran all over the Mavs 136-103.

The Rockets were actually down three at half, but used a 15-0 run to start the third quarter and eventually end up outscoring Dallas by 27 points in that period.

Lin ended the game with 21 points, 9 assists and lots of brotherly hugs for his bestie, Chandler Parsons, who ended with 32 points on a ridiculous 12-13 from the floor (including 6-7 from three). BESTIES FOREVER!

[YAWN] Jeremy Lin competed in NBA Skills Challenge

Jeremy Lin participated in the NBA taco bell sprite skills challenge sponsored by Haier.

What a fucking boring ass event. Jesus. At it’s best, it’s just barely interesting and just with every other “event” during NBA All-Star Weekend, it’s full of NBA players not giving a shit, but this year, it’s NOT GIVING A SHIT FOR CHARITY!

Here’s a photo of Jeremy Lin smiling – the only person that actually enjoyed this snoozefest of an event.

Jeremy Lin in NBA Skills Snoozefest

God, this post even bores me. I can barely motivate myself to type the next few letters of the words about something so boring. If you’ve been suffering from insomnia, check out the video of Jeremy Lin at the PepsiCo NBA skills Home Depot Challenge, in which he placed 3rd or 4th place or something…

HAM: Jeremy Lin dunks on the Sacramento Kings (Video)

ham basketball

No jokes today. None need to be made. I don’t want rub it in. That would be just be salt in the wound after Jeremy Lin went LIKE, HAM on Sacramento last night – blocking 5-9 Isaiah Thomas and then dunking on Francisco Garcia.

It made me so happy, that it was featured in the NBA.com plays of the week. I knew you felt the way I felt, NBA.com. We wasted so many years being coy with one another. I always knew it was you…

Jeremy Lin’s “Euro-Step” and lefty layup vs. Hornets

My heart is heavy after the Rockets lost to the Hornets tonight.

Despite stats that may be mistaken for an okay game, Lin was especially out of sync in the game. High turnovers (again), missed threes (1-4), and was blocked four times. I can’t bring myself to talk about his 9 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 steals (YAY). He did have a nifty sidestep layup in the first quarter. PEEP IT.

The Hornets seem to do a number on the Rockets defensively – for whatever reason, they’re able to effectively stymie their offense. 79 points from a team that averages 106? I’m going to sleep. Continue reading “Jeremy Lin’s “Euro-Step” and lefty layup vs. Hornets”

Jeremy Lin crosses Ron Artest, hit by Robert Sacre (Video)

Jeremy Lin got knocked on his ass last night…. AGAIN. And Clyde Drexler (Houston’s announcer) reiterates that Jeremy “has to learn how to fall.”

I just don’t think that’s possible right now; Lin goes to the basket with such momentum that any moderate contact will put him off balance, and ultimately on the ground.

Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin celebrate 3 point play vs lakers

In any case, Lin crossed Ron Artest (I’m not calling him that other “name”) and bolted to the hoop, where he was promptly met by Lakers cheerleader Robert Sacre (who was forced to start without Dwight and Gasol). Lin scooped up a high-arching layup and got hit by Sacre as the ball laid into the hoop.

LOL, Sacre, Lin still hit the shot. Lin laid out on the ground and let out a primal scream as Parsons and Harden came to his aid.

Admirable effort by Sacre, but he was highlight reel in all the wrong ways last night. Earlier, Harden dunked on Sacre’s bald head (+1) and later Beardy McPoints passed the ball between Sacre’s legs to Marcus Morris for the “easy two”. LOL. Five straight wins for the Rockets. Boom.

JLIN has 19p, 6r, 5a, 4s vs. Lakers (Video Highlights)

Another boxscore stuffer for Jeremy tonight: 19 points, 5 assist, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! Act now and we’ll include SEVEN TURNOVERS!

Lin got off to a slow start and was benched five minutes into the game, but he teamed with Beardy (31 points), Sultry Eyes Bromance (20 points) and that Kool Kat Delfino (19 points) to eventually overwhelm their opposition. You want to play “who can score more” against the highest scoring NBA team in the league?  YOU WILL LOSE (probably).

Lin has been shooting at a much higher clip as of late, and in tonight’s game, he continued that pattern; shooting 7-13 overall and 2-6 from three. All this against the Los Angeles Lakers – it feels so sweet! Good night. Continue reading “JLIN has 19p, 6r, 5a, 4s vs. Lakers (Video Highlights)”
