As most of you know, I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from watching Rockets games, since Lin has been sidelined, due to a knee injury. Well, Lin will be back to face off against the Blazers tonight and I’ll be watching and doing live commenting using this post. Would be great if you could join me here and we can watch the game together virtually.
I’m glad to see Lin is healthy, but there isn’t a very high probability that it will be advantageous for Lin to return tonight against one of the hottest teams in the NBA that’s definitely the MOST IMPROVED team in the NBA. What do you guys think about Lin’s return?
Lin doesn’t shy away from challenges and is not someone who is overly concerned with his personal preservation (as evidenced by the amount of blood he sheds on the court), so I’m not surprised to see Lin return the moment Rockets embark on probably their toughest schedule so far this season. Lets hope he still has his stroke and isn’t too rusty tonight against a guard that Sampson feels the need to repeat the word “elite” to describe. Tonight should be a very interesting game.
On a very sad note, I just found out that McHale’s mother passed away. I know I complain a lot about McHale’s coaching, but I hope people can separate McHale’s coaching with him as a human being. As a human being, he seems like a great guy and he’s been through such profound personal matters. So I feel for him and can’t imagine what he’s going through. My condolences to McHale and his family.
