Mike Woodson clearly didn’t want to talk about Jeremy Lin anymore about 90 minutes before tonight’s game.

He was asked whether he thought Lin would have fit in his system.

“He’s not in our system,” Woodson said. “We’ve got Raymond and Kidd and Pablo. That’s the way it’s going to be for a while.”

Woodson then was asked if he had every seen anything like what happened during the height of Linsanity

“It was a hell of a run,” Woodson said. “I thought he played extremely well. But he’s here in Houston.”

The reporter then said he was asking him about what he saw.

“It was a good run,” Woodson said. “It was a heck of run for him and our team.”

Woodson addressed the decision to not match the Rockets' offer for Lin at the morning shootaround.
