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... »

Will a sick Kobe play to prove something? Or will he rest so Jeremy and Boozer will the main creator on offense? Will Lin be able to maintain or improve his membership in 50-40-90 (% of FG-3FG-FT) elite club in the past 5 games? Kobe-centric offense, Lakers bench and weak interior defense would still likely bring Laker another loss against the hot-shooting Warriors but we’ll never give up to... »

The last time Lakers visited the Warriors, they suffered defeat L 104-127 (Lin, 6pts/6asts/4rebs/1stl in 32 min) with tired legs in the 2nd night of back-to-back. Now, the situation is reversed. Golden State (6-2) is playing against Charlotte Hornets tonight so they will be a little tired tomorrow. So far they have 1-1 record in the Back-to-Back game (Win vs Blazers, Loss vs Phoenix when Klay Thom... »

So the Lakers lost again 80-93 to the Spurs where the bad interior defense by the big men was easily exploited by the Spurs well-oiled machine to give up easy points. That’s why the Lakers have been trailing quickly against any opponents in the 1st half. And yes, it included the Hornets that they beat in the 2nd half. Byron Scott is too slow to bench Boozer or Hill, probably in fear of losin... »

After 2 road losses when Kobe shot too much (26 and 28), will he trust Lin and his teammates again by shooting only 20 shots when they won their only game against the Hornets? Will Lin be able to maintain or improve his membership in 50-40-90 (% of FG-3FG-FT) elite club in the past 4 games? We know Lin will be ready to perform if Kobe and Boozer pass the ball to him. Lakers bench and weak interior... »

The Lakers is down 1-7 after 2 losses on the road where common patterns have developed: Kobe can’t help himself to shoot his team out of the game. Kobe’s shot average is 24.5/gm which is the highest in NBA surpassing the 2nd (19 FGA) by almost 30% weak defense by 2 big men (Hill and Boozer) weaker bench after Wayne Ellington was out indefinitely due to a family tragedy Jeremy Lin came ... »

A short analysis: Jeremy Lin looked the best in the 2nd night of many back-to-back games. He was aggressive but smart. His best play of the night came when he attacked both Asik and ADavis, tempting them to block his shot but he managed to twist a wrap-around pass to Hill for the easy jam. Grade: A- for nice controlled, patient game. Waited for his opportunity to be the floor general once Kobe res... »

Here we go! With tired legs from playing last night, how would the Lakers respond? Would JLin has enough energy to run the offense and guard Jrue Holiday? Would he find ways to solve 2 formidable big men (Asik and ADavis)? How to Use Chat and Disqus Comments 1. For game comments, upvotes and record-keeping of Lin’s or Lakers’ stats, use Disqus2.

I thought the short-handed Lakers (w/o Ellington) was quite impressive last night to compete against the mighty Memphis who hasn’t lost at home since Feb 2014 in a string of 14 games. It was a close loss 102-107 after being down 17pts (84-101) with 6 min to go. It was a loss but Lakers could have stolen the game had they not been down too many points. To put things in perspective, Lakers sho... »
