Halftime Report: GSW 54 v. HOU 31
It’s been a while since I have been able to watch a game and find the time to report and when I started watching this game during the second quarter, I couldn’t help but cringe at the 41 vs. 27 score…and it only got worse as Curry and David Lee continued to put in baskets and as Delfino, Lin, and Parsons continued to miss theirs. Harden is the only Rockets with double points and even he has only 11 and it’s already halftime!! Curry is leading the GSW with 16pts. Lin does have 7pts and made a 3pter and he is the ONLY Rockets playing at 50% from the field at this time. Both Parsons and Asik have 4pts. They need to really get it together in the locker room and come back strong during the 2nd half…and they can definitely do it!! They have come back strong, like they did Friday against the Timberwolves, and they have played very well against the Warriors before…so no doubt in my mind that this game can still be a Win!! Stick with me, I will update this post after the game.
3rd Quarter: GSW 75 v. HOU 60
Well I don’t know what McHale said to his Rockets during the halftime break but whatever he said worked!! The Rockets came back strong during the 3rd quarter!! Lin made a 3! Harden made a 3 and at one point during the game the gap was closed to within 10pts.
Final Score: GSW 108 b. HOU 78
The beginning of the 4th quarter should have been called Delfino’s quarter. Delfino opened up the scoring with back to back 3s!! Both Delfino and Lin continued to play aggressively, but it wasn’t enough to close the lead that the Warriors made in the first half of the game. Commentators mentioned that Lin and Harden were the only players who were playing at their usual capacity and I am not sure what was causing their teammates to lag behind, especially Parsons, who barely made any baskets. Jeremy Lin was named Landry’s Rockets Player of the Game for his shooting and aggressive playing tonight. These past few games have really not been well for the Rockets and tonight was a very terrible loss…and I haven’t been keeping up with my boys as close as I usually do, but I don’t think there was a good excuse for being down almost 30 freaking points!! They started out very weak with missed baskets and even though they improved during the second half, it wasn’t good enough to win.
Top 5 Scorers:
- Harden: 21pts, 10rbds, 8asts
- Lin: 21pts, 1rbd, 4asts
- Delfino: 12pts, 1rbd, 1ast
- Parsons: 9pts, 7rbd, 2ast
- Asik: 6pts, 11rbds, 1ast
And this is just my random opinion…but this is the first game I really got to watch with Lin and his mouthguards and I just want to say, that I am not feeling that look on him!!
But I know, I know…I have to deal with it because I don’t want any of his pretty teeth to get knocked out or chipped again like last time. Now that would be an even more horrible look on him…sorry Cole Aldrich, you would be so much cuter with your two front teeth.
And…here is a video link of him trying to talk with his mouth guards in. Jeremy even says himself at the end of this video how he really can’t talk well and how the mouth guards are hurting him. (Thanks for the link Cath!!) I’m sorry but I couldn’t keep my eyes away from his lips, which look extra plump and juicy, but at the same time they were such a distraction that I had a hard time paying attention to his words…especially with him licking and pursing his lips.
OMG…this video really is kinda hilarious to me!! LMAO!!
Ok…some other fans have brought to my attention that he is not struggling to talk with his mouth guard in, but that actually he is having trouble speaking because he busted his lip. Poor baby is always getting hurt!! Ok…ignore everything I just said about laughing at him…I would never want to hurt your feelings Jeremy!!
