James Harden and the Houston Rockets tied an NBA record with 23 three-points in a blowout win over the Warriors. At the end of three quarters, the Rockets were 18-27 from long-range, but shot “only” 5-13 the rest of the way. For the game, they were 57% on three-pointers, but only 45% on twos - they made as many three-point shots as two-point shots. Jeremy Lin made five, James Harden and Chandler Parsons each hit four, and even Donatas Motiejunas made one, the fourth of his career.
The hero for Golden State, if a 140-109 loss can have a hero, was Draymond Green. When Patrick Beverley tried to put up the record-setting three with 35 seconds left, Green knocked him down, earning an ejection, but also the respect of his peers. On a night where most of the Warriors didn’t show up at all, Green showed some real pride. The White Chris Webber should offer to pay his fine.

In other Jeremy Lin and Utah news: The documentary Linsanity premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last weekend, followed by a Q&A with Jeremy himself. The film is still currently looking to raise distribution money through their Kickstarter, which ends Feb 15th. 
I suppose it would be unlike Jeremy to fund his own movie about himself that he didn’t want to be made in the first place, but I mean what’s $30k to the $5mil he’ll be making this year?

Do you think him and Tony Leung discussed their favorite Wong Kar-Wai movies during the shoot?

“I have plans for you in the future. This is a long-term investment. Don’t rush back.”
—Knick owner James Dolan to Jeremy Lin in the spring

More Lin news courtesy of the always excellent Ball Don’t Lie this time on why he did not return ahead of schedule from his knee surgery to play in the NBA Playoffs. Hey, special shout out to the Frank Isola’s of the world!

Look at these [disgusting] Knicks fans.

Look at these [disgusting] Knicks fans.

I saw the news that Lin was going to the Rockets, looked up his number and posted the shirt on my site.

A vendor in China—every vendor in China—upon the news that Jeremy will be a Houston Rocket.

(NYT)

After this Tweet from Yahoo’s Marc Spears, the Internet is ablaze as it seems multiple sources believe Knicks will allow Jeremy Lin to leave —wasting his Bird Rights— for the Rockets offer sheet & replace him by reacquiring Ray Felton in a S/T with the Blazers. 

Oh, also, NY will not match Raptors offer sheet to Landry Fields. 

Knick fans, what say you?

Have we seen the last of both Jeremy Lin & Landry Fields in Knicks unis?

Well, it was fun while it lasted. Landry Fields, a restricted FA, has signed an offer sheet that, even if you love the Stanford product, is probably foolish for the Knickerbockers to match, especially considering the make up of the roster, their existing needs, plus the money already committed to their own “Big 3”. 

Meanwhile, ESPN is reporting that Jeremy Lin is scheduled to meet with the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. If Lin were to sign an offer from Houston, it would put the NYK in an awfully tough spot. Do they match it & commit themselves to terms that may take them beyond the realm of good basketball business? Maybe not. Houston has already shown they are not shy in making expensive, difficult to match offers to other club’s restricted FA’s(see Omer Asik & the Bulls). Would they really give Lin a 5 year/$40+ million deal based off a half season of great play? 

Knicks Knation won’t sleep very well until they get an answer.

"Everyone knows that Steve loves New York and that New York loves Steve. I love Steve. It would be great to have him here next year."
—Amar’e Stoudemire to the NY Daily News

Amar’e wants Steve Nash in New York. Who wouldn’t, except maybe Jeremy Lin? I am not a cap expert, but unless Nash signs for the vet minimum it’s unlikely that the Knicks front office can both sign Nash and keep Lin with the mid-level, executing what would be an enticing mentor-mentee relationship.
Nash is undoubtedly more accomplished and has greater skills but he only has 1-2 good years left. We have seen Lin’s talent but what is unknown is his consistency. So what would you do if you were the Knicks?
Keep Jeremy or free Steve?

Perhaps in spite of Stephen A Smith’s diatribe on Monday morning, Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson has stated that Jeremy Lin will not play in game 5 against the Heat on Wednesday. Woodson said that Lin is not physically ready for action yet. 
The Knicks have lost Iman Shumpert and Baron Davis to major knee injuries (Davis is expected to be out for a year) in this series. Everybody’s favorite, Mike Bibby will start on Wednesday night.
Due to the fact that I was at the gym at the time, I only heard bits and pieces of Stephen A. Smith’s rant about Lin’s inactivity in this series. Smith believes that if Lin is able to get shots off in practice, then should be able to play for maybe 12-15 minutes off the bench for the Knicks. It is an all hands on deck situation for the Knicks; they are the walking wounded, but how effective is Lin going to be if he’s just at 70%? We all saw how effective Lin was against the Heat in mid February at the height of Linsanity…

Jeremy Lin has a new uncanny valley action figure. So life-like it stares at you from anywhere in a room. And it never stops staring … at you. Its been staring at me for so long I’m afraid to move. Isn’t that cute?
But seriously, I have not moved since 12:30 on Tuesday. It is in control now. Please send help.
