Probable starters

PG -- Whitehead
SG -- Kilpatrick
SF -- Bogdanovic
PF -- Booker
C -- Lopez

Rockets
PG -- Beverley
SG -- Harden
SF -- Ariza

if Lin plays, he's likely to come off the bench in limited minutes. Rockets fans are going to think McHale was right all along.

I will take the opposite view.
I think if lin plays, he will start, benched early like lopez.

Lin comes in and the team completely dominates the Rockets. He goes to the bench and Rockets dominate. In 14 minutes, Lin is +12 so far after 3 quarters. Nets down 5.

Lin sits in the 4th quarter... then in the next 3 possessions, the Nets has 2 turnovers and gets a shot blocked.

Well, Brooklyn Nets got back to just 2 points behind (88 ~ 90) when the Head Coach took Jeremy out..... and Houston Rockets shot back into a 9-point lead :roll: :roll: :roll:
