P08 LAL vs SAC Game Thread

How will Jeremy Lin respond to this uncertainty being a starting PG? Now it’s clear that whoever starts will get the most minutes so it is very important for Jeremy to start. It looks like Magic and Kobe support the idea but Byron Scott for some odd reason talked highly about Price despite the mediocre stats.

Will Jeremy be cleared to play against Phoenix Suns? He was reported to have a remarkable recovery so it’s a good chance he is ready to play @JLin7 As reported Lin had a remarkable recovery. Tomorrow he will workout fully and could be back on Tuesday. pic.twitter.com/Bs5V2XEQtV — Librafree (@Librafree) October 20, 2014 But Coach Byron Scott wanted Jeremy to to scrimmage + cut + change direction to test ankle. Mark Medina reported today (10/22) is an off day and it will hurt his chance of playing tomorrow. We all want to see Jeremy play but if he’s not cleared, it’s the best scenario to give the ankle time to heal and stabilize before regular season starts. I presume L... »

Lin will not play in this game. Therefore, depends on how the game goes, there may or may not be a post game thread. LAL and coach Scott’s basketball philosophy were widely discussed among internet analyst and fans. After an ugly lost in pre-season game 3, seems like the honey moon period for coach Scott is about to be over. In the reality, he has multiple problems at hands for this LAL squad, e.g. injuries, defense, identities. Ronnie Price is most likely going to start today at PG spot. This is a rare chance for him to prove his worth to the team, let’s see what he can do, and hope Lin will have  a speedy recovery . Again, let’s use the Disqus comments as the only option ... »
