Yesterday in NBA action, Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets welcomed the visiting Golden State Warriors. While that game was a blowout 140-109 win for the Rockets, the team almost went on to break an NBA record for most three-pointers.
Leading the way for the Rockets was Jeremy Lin who made 5 of 8 three-pointers. James Harden made 4 of 5 and Chandler Parson had 4 of 8.
The Warriors were obviously furious losing by a landslide decided to try to foul the Rockets hard, in order to stop them from breaking the record.
Although Warriors coach, Mark Jackson tried a last-minute attempt to stop the Rockets from making history, the better way would’ve been to you know, defend the Rockets from shooting beyond the arch. I respect his decision to try to stop the team but fouling late was uncalled for. Too many of the Rockets three-point shots were open. Five of the 23 were contested.
So next time, instead of fouling late in the game to stop a team from accomplishing a prominent milestone, you should perhaps get you’re players to play good defense.
Nonetheless, what an impressive win and shooting by the Rockets team. It’s unfortunate that those pesky Warriors stopped them by fouling late in the game.
