G48 LAL @NYK PreGame Thread+Poll

G48 LAL @NYK PreGame Thread+Poll

Jeremy Lin is back to play NY Knicks again! He had 5-0 record vs the Knicks when he was in HOU. But he’s with the Lakers where tanking is the norm and losing is celebrated! Will JLin be featured more than 27min? We know Byron wanted to feature Clarkson in 2 OT although Jeremy played well in the 1st half. Let’s hope the FO and even Byron give what the NYK crowd wants which is a lot of L... »

Lakers managed not to blow the win in 2OT after letting the Bulls took 9-0 run to get the 1st OT. DRose shooting 7-26 simply took out the Bulls offense. As for JLin, he managed to get 11pt/5asts with 5-11 shooting in 27 min. Lin started shooting well and drove aggressively in the 1st half with 8pts/3asts with 4-6 good shooting in 12 consecutive min. But he lost the good rhythm as Clarkson played P... »

Jeremy received 28 min and 23 min following a DNP. How will the 3rd game be any different? We’re still monitoring Lin’s agent (Roger Montgomery) tweet about Victory is certain. It might look to translate to  20-30min as long as Lakers is losing to achieve the Tanking purpose. Will Linsanity game be allowed to resurface? All it takes are multiple screens and good shooting rhythm from JL... »

In the 2nd game after the DNP, we had a mixed results of Jeremy Lin performance. We were treated to a great 10 min in the 1st Half to 5pts/5assists when Jeremy looked unstoppable to lead the Lakers to 19 pt lead with multiple screen&rolls to connect with Ed Davis inside and Ellington’s hot 3pt shooting. But just as he drained his 3 after getting the rhythm, Byron Scott quicky benched him... »

With Nick Young out due to ankle injury that requires MRI, will Byron run plays for Jeremy Lin? Will he get another 28min or a DNP? If Byron wants to tank, will he bench Jeremy if he leads the Lakers to play well? What about Lin’s agent (Roger Montgomery) tweet about Victory is certain? Will it translate to 25+ min as long as Lakers is losing to achieve the Tanking purpose? Let’s keep ... »

G45 HOU @ LAL PostGame Thread

Surprisingly, Lin was given 28 minutes in this game. Lin was a little off in his shooting rhythm due to the Playing Time fluctuations but his aggressiveness managed to get him 10 FTs out of his total 14pts/6asts/3TOs. Lin showed what he can do even when he had an off night shooting. He can always get to the FT line with proper screens. What an exciting game it will be if Lin is featured for the tr... »

Will Jeremy get another DNP? Or the FO warned Byron to play Jeremy at least 15-20min off the bench for business reasons?

Did DISCRIMINATION cause First DNP – Coach Decision for Jeremy Lin since Feb 2012?

Did DISCRIMINATION cause First DNP – Coach Decision for Jeremy Lin since Feb 2012?

Byron Scott finally gave a DNP – Coach Decision to Jeremy Lin inexplicably (2nd highest TS%) after choosing to start Clarkson and play Price (!) as the backup. I believe this is his first DNP since Feb 2 2012 against Chicago Bulls game Price played poorly (0-4) as he had been all January with 2nd worst True Shooting % Byron’s explanation of knowing what Lin brought simply didn’t ... »

Showcase+Trade Start Lin 30-35min, then trade Lin before Feb Trade deadline 3. Showcase+Resign in 2015 Start Lin 30-35min, then offer new c... »
