@  Sir Thursday : (19 April 2015 - 02:50 AM) Uh-oh, looks like Playoff Rondo is actually a thing (although it helps to be being guarded by Jason Terry).
@  08huangj : (19 April 2015 - 02:36 AM) Now it's tied
@  08huangj : (19 April 2015 - 02:32 AM) But look now. The Mavericks are catching up. For some reason the Rockets strike out to a early double digit lead early, and always let their opponent come back into the game. I thought that they might've learned from the Utah game.
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 02:14 AM) I must say I'd have shaken my head if you told me at the beginning of the year that Clint Capela would be getting 1Q minutes in the playoffs
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 02:12 AM) Beautiful 1Q for the Rox
@  Cooper : (19 April 2015 - 01:45 AM) Dwight looks really fresh
@  thejohnnygold : (18 April 2015 - 05:38 PM) That recent Mark Cuban interview said it best. They aren't selling basketball purity they are selling a good time. Their target demographic doesn't want to see that and it will likely get tweaked. It's the reason Popovich got fined for not putting his starters on the floor against Miami--it upsets the consumers.
@  Sir Thursday : (18 April 2015 - 01:09 PM) The volume of players affected by a rule change is irrelevant - if the rules are creating a game that is too annoying to watch, then the rules should be changed.
@  Sir Thursday : (18 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) @thenit: I disagree with the argument about 10 players. There were only about 3 players in the league that used the 'rip-through' move, but they still changed the rules about that.
@  JY86er : (18 April 2015 - 09:39 AM) Harden gets the team into the Bonus so soon that a Rocket frontcourt player should either shoot 60% from the line OR 60% from the field or you can't play here period.
@  thenit : (18 April 2015 - 07:23 AM) If this continues teams won't draft players that shoot 50% and therefore players who are bigs will work on it from a younger age. Thats what I like about Euro players, raerly do you see someone shooting below 50 on fts because they work on their skills and not just live off their athletic ability, otherwise we can make alley oops worth 3 points becaesu as a fan we like them
@  thenit : (18 April 2015 - 07:21 AM) there are 10 players in the league that shoot around 50% you can't change the rule for 10 players to make them more valuable.
@  thenit : (18 April 2015 - 07:20 AM) Like Jalen Rose said on Grantland with Bill Simmons,
@  Dan G : (18 April 2015 - 02:02 AM) I agree it is painful to watch but the best solution in my opinion if for these bad free throw players to work on hitting free throws. It's a crying shame a professional player can suck so bad at free throws that it has an effect on the game the way it does.
@  adonneus : (17 April 2015 - 11:49 PM) Around $120 for the worst seats in the house for the playoffs!
@  YaoMan : (17 April 2015 - 10:14 PM) A fan paying $120 for a good seats to an NBA game does not want to see D Jordan (or any bad free throwers) shoot 20 free throws. What if the NFL had a rule where you are driving for a touchdown, but your opponent can "foul" you or commit a violation where you get a field goal kick? Wouldn't that be the worst brand of football you would ever watch?
@  Cooper : (17 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) I'm still on the fence but The league will definitely look into it if our series,clips spurs, and others have as much hacking as expected.
@  Dan G : (17 April 2015 - 10:03 PM) It's all in the game, yo, all in the game.
@  YaoMan : (17 April 2015 - 10:02 PM) Hack a player is not basketball. I hate it with the passion. I wouldn't want to win that way. It's such an ugly product. They did this against Wilt Chamberlain in the old days and they changed the rule for a while where if you foul a guy without the ball, the offense gets a tech free throw but keeps possession. That's how I believe it should be. Either that or make it like the NFL where you can decline it.
@  thenit : (17 April 2015 - 07:40 PM) I don't think we should get rid off hack a player. I can see Mavs-Rocket game going on for 5 hours hacking Rondo and our players. That would be one way that may force NBA to adjust even though I disagree

I don't see things going well for Lin in the near future. He has no confidence in his shot, as seen by the numerous times he passes up on wide-open shots. The coaching staff has no confidence in him, as seen by his reduction in PT and benching in OT. And Harden has no confidence in him as seen by the numerous times he chooses not to pass to an open Lin after he missed that wide-open 3 at the end of the Heat game.

I caught myself checking some stats today... Jeremy Lin is tied at 23rd with 8.7 assists per 48min. This is not league-wide either, but only among PG's. On top of that, his Assist/Turnover ratio is pretty awful. He is 35th among PG's with a ratio of 2.08 assists/turnover. This places him among guys like Damian Lillard, Jrue Holliday, and Jerryd Bayless. Holliday is getting a lot of attention for his overall game, but if you ask me, the PG should be the one guy on the team with an extreme hatred of turnovers. Technically we are seeing a man in the same situation as Damian Lillard, with Lin only being a sophomore on paper. This is bound to improve over the rest of the season, but surely indicated how young he and the team are.
