Halftime: 57 to 72
Well this has been an exciting game so far! I will say though, it has been a little weird to see the blue and orange and to not be cheering for Novak’s 3s or Tyson’s blocks, etc. To see all those familiar faces and to have to remind myself that for tonight, they are the enemy. The Knicks are playing well tonight, but once Anthony sat down, it cleared the way for the Rockets to rack up on points. So glad that they took every advantage they could. The Knicks had a nice winning streak going for a little while, thank goodness the Grizzlies took that winning streak away from them!
It looks like Chandler Parsons will be a superstar again tonight. He had a career high of 26 points BEFORE half time!!!
3rd Quarter: 80 to 107
My Jeremy was hustlin’ tonight and it showed!! The 3rd quarter was a good one for Jeremy!! At one point he was even crawling on the floor to get the ball away from Anthony and succeeded in passing to a teammate from the floor! He hit a 3 pter and I squealed and clapped my hands with happiness!! At another point in the game, he was cornered by 2 Knicks and he threw the ball behind his back, which Asik used to finish up with a dunk! There was also a beautiful pass to Douglas, which Douglas than made a 3pter!! The cameras showed Lin walking with his head held high and with swag back in his step. It was soo freakin sexy that I almost had to take another shower.
This was ESPN’s headline during the 4th quarter of this game. Love it!!
Final Score: 103 v. 131
The Rockets dominated the Knicks tonight!! Tonight’s score tied the Toyota Center Record for a high. The Rockets also made twelve 3pters! Douglas hit two 3′s within the last 5 minutes of the game. And the camera showed Lin and Parsons chatting it up and smiling knowing they just beat one of the best teams (so far) this season and that the starters all played their hearts out. The crowd was going crazy…again this is one of the few times I wish I lived in Houston. What a good game it was!!

I also received this great video link from fellow Lin Lady, mber, and I’m so glad we didn’t need the inspiration tonight, but I still wanted to share it nonetheless for the somber days that may come in the future.
I also wanted to pass on some well wishes from Lin Lady, Cath. She has not forsaken all of us lol…she has just been very busy and when real life slows down, she hopes to return to sports watching and fangirling. But she wanted to let everyone know that she is thankful for the connections she has made on this blog and that she is doing well!!
I can finally rest easy. And with the food coma I have been in lately, sleeping will not be hard to do! Goodnight my lovelies and so glad all our positive energy has helped the Rockets and Lin play well tonight!!
