Lin, McHale don't blame schedule for play
Kevin McHale and Jeremy Lin weren't about to lean on fatigue as a reason why the Rockets have lost their past two games.
The Rockets just finished off a four-game-in-five-night stretch where they won the first two, but lost the last two.
"We're not laying brick in 110 degrees," McHale said. "We're playing basketball."
Lin added, "What goes around, comes around with the schedule, so it's not a valid excuse for us. Tonight was just one of those nights where we lacked energy and lacked effort and there's really no one to blame except ourselves for that."
