After a quiet game vs HOU when a tired Lin had the honor of being the focal point of defense with multiple traps and swarming double-team, how would Lin respond in this game with 1 day rest? After 0pt GSW game, Lin produced a double-double (15pts/10asts) in ATL when they didn’t focus their defense on him. Tonight will be tougher because Rick Carlisle (DAL coach) noticed how well Kobe and Lin... »

  Lakers (3-9) will face Mavericks (9-3) who ranks 1st in PTS (108.9/gm) and 5th in assists (23.9/gm) It will be another tough game for Lakers because Rick Carlisle is an excellent coach who truly understands how important Jeremy Lin is as an engine to the team. Will Jeremy have rested legs and repeat his assertive pattern shoot 3s, play pick-and-pop with Boozer/Hill and PnR with Ed Davis? Or... »

Lakers managed to pull an upset winning 98-92 against the Rockets who was missing Dwight Howard. Lakers managed to outscore the Rockets 28-17 in the 4th quarter with great defense. Kobe, Swaggy, Hill and Wes (defending Harden) provided the combined effort to pull the win. Well, Lin didn’t do well individually but he made the right play to his teammates who are making their shots while being ... »

How would Jeremy Lin respond the next night after a big game with 15pts/10asts? Will the tired legs impact the whole Lakers? Will the Lakers rely on another team effort? Lakers might lose again but the game should be more competitive if Lakers continue their offensive teamwork and excellent defensive effort against Atlanta Note: Chat is enabled but if it will be disabled if some users report issue... »

Congrats to JLin who notched the 1st double-double (15/10) as a Laker! With it, Lakers media (Worthy) acknowledged he is truly a PG, not an SG turning to a PG. Double-doubles will solidify his role as the true and future Lakers PG How would the Lakers fare against the Rockets with tired legs in the 2nd night of back-to-back? Will JLin ride the adrenaline and pull another great game against his old... »

Congrats to Jeremy Lin who rebounded from 0pt game with his first double-double (15pts/10asts) this season and the 2nd Win for the Lakers (2-9)!

All Lin fans are waiting in anticipation on how Jeremy will respond to his 0pts/1ast game. Will he follow his usual pattern of following a bad game with an inspired aggressive game? Or will he continue to get frustrated by a myriad of Lakers problems (Kobe ISOs, bad defense, unreliable bench)? I think Jeremy will redeem his bad game with a good one, maybe a great one. But as he often says when he&... »

[TESTING] Adding the countdown timer in the post for mobile users who don’t see the counter on the SideBar. Noone could have predicted Jeremy Lin not scoring any points in the last game. Most fans (55%) voted 18/5 or 15/6 in the poll after a string of good 15/4 games. But as Kobe set his mind to create his “MJ Flu” game by scoring 44pts taking the 2nd highest shots attempts at 34... »

G10 GSW @ LAL PostGame Thread

I didn’t want to create the PostGame thread due to how disappointing the results for Lin fans. But I don’t want to slow down the site performance. This is the worst game of Jeremy as a Laker with 0pts,1ast in 22 min. No pass from me for Lin not being more aggressive in the scoreboard despite Kobe going into “MJ Flu” game by not playing as a team from the get-go. He could ha... »
