G03 LAC@LAL Game Thread

Kobe said Lin should not be afraid to run the offense if Kobe calls for the ball.
  • Will Jeremy drive to the basket more? Will he shoot more than 5 FG attempts?
  • And what is Jeremy’s plan to get comfortable and communicate with his teammates?
  • Will his teammates get better to run Pick-and-Roll offense and Princeton sets? If not, will Jeremy try to take over next to Kobe as Kobe himself suggested?

It won’t be perfect but I expect there will be progress to be made in team chemistry. Plus the Lakers can’t afford to let Clippers shoot high% from 3pt-land (46% in the last 2 games) to have a competitive game. A close loss would be a great progress.

“Jeremy Lin communicating more with Kobe Bryant about roles”, Mark Medina

Bryant also said Lin should not be afraid to run the offense even if Bryant calls for the ball.

It appears that has opened up dialogue between Bryant and Lin as the Lakers (0-2) enter tonight’s contest against the Clippers in a designated home game at Staples Center.

“I have to get comfortable,” Lin said. “The biggest thing is the communication. There are some things I need to do better for sure and run the team better. There are some ways the team can help me and create a system or structure to have that opportunity to do what I do best. We’re in communication with that.”

    I’m first? where is everybody?

    First again?

  • John Lee

    Darn, I would’ve had it but for some reason Chrome logged me out of Disqus.

  • TTNN

    3 the best!

  • John Lee

    May the Lakers, especially Lin, rain the 3s on the Clippers tonight!

    I subscribed to JLin’s prayer request, and got an email from him (or maybe someone from his camp):

    On Friday, October 31, 2014 7:01 PM, Jeremy Lin wrote:

    Hey everyone,

    Thanks for signing up for the prayer list!! I really, really appreciate the fact that you guys are willing to pray for me. In Philippians 4:6 it says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Prayer is such a powerful thing that unites believers worldwide so Im thankful that you guys are supporting me in such a powerful way!

    For me to play every game with a pure heart: to give God my best effort, fully play for Him and trust Him with the results

    For me to see everyday as God’s blessing and to find joy and peace regardless of life’s circumstances

    For full and speedy recoveries for our injured players, especially Julius Randle

    For our team to increase in cohesiveness and team chemistry, as well as turning around the rough start to the season

    For the salvation of players, staff and members of Lakers organization and that they’d be receptive to the Gospel message

    For the city of LA to realize the fleetingness of material and worldly success, as well as their need for Jesus Christ

    Thanks and God bless!

  • Brent Yen

    FWIW, I just don wanna waste it. I usually give them all to my friends…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So you’re the trick-or-treat troll now? lol

  • real-dsb

    this game is blacked out on LP? =(

  • bolero

    nope. it’s working..

  • KL

    The Lakers and Lin are gonna improve this game. I just know it!

  • real-dsb

    are you in the U.S.? maybe different blackout rules

  • bolero

    canada. I usually get black out too..

  • real-dsb

    do we have to wait for conclusion of CLE CHI game before Lakers game starts?

  • blubell

    woohoo… 3!!!!!!!

  • Dorothy

    Lin just had a 3!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That Lin 3 should open his game..

  • real-dsb

    here’s my tip for doing disqus + chat. Pop chat out to its own window. Make Disqus the left half of screen. Make Chat the right half of the screen. (Windows tip use WIN+Left or WIN+Right).

  • real-dsb

    please don’t tie again CLE/CHI, I want to watch the Lakers!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m so embarrassed for the Lakers FC

  • Rick Johnson

    Get Davis in there.

  • real-dsb

    how are you guys watching the game?

  • blubell

  • IsabeliJane*17

  • Michael

  • real-dsb

    but it’s just showing the CLE/CHI game!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • kassiek
  • IsabeliJane*17

    What? In my stream the Lakes/Clip are already viewable

  • IsabeliJane*17
  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • real-dsb

    ok, I guess it depended on which one of the links you use. Most of them still had CLE/CHI

  • blubell

    Davis in.

  • real-dsb

    finally switched to Lakers. $@#!

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Down 13 already??

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You have to thank the Clips bigs for that…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    coast to coast!

  • Ken Chatsworth

    No surprise there

  • BobbyH

    Defense is so bad.

  • Rick Johnson

    Ellington in good need some 3 point shooting

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Lakers bigs are like tofu compared to Griffin

  • Lam

    How is Lin doing inspite
    of the box score?

  • real-dsb

    thanks

  • BobbyH

    Not bad. Quite aggressive in terms of offensive. Just the others don’t shoot well.

  • Dorothy

    Is that a floater?

  • Lam

    Well at least some consolation.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Looks a bit better than the first two games…so far.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Like the aggressiveness of JLin. So happy he has found his role.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    To me it looks much better. So glad that they play more like a team now.

  • Michael

    Motion picks up in half court at once, when Hill and Boozer are out.

  • BobbyH

    If the Lakers can make defense work and some offensive power added (swap Hill and Boz with Davis and some big) , I think they still got a chance at playoff.

  • BobbyH

    Yes, It is so obvious. I don’t get why Scott is so insisting on both.

  • Brent Yen

    running jump shot

  • bolero

    sluggish start with TO. he gets better afterward. good defense. Reddick is hot right now…

  • Ken Chatsworth

    LIn outscores Kobe in the quarter?? Blasphemy!!

  • JoeTeam

    Haunted house on our neighborhood. I want scared lol.

  • bolero

    free LP for now..

  • Michael

    For Paint protection…my nose just grew 2 feet.

  • JoeTeam

    Hey ij, wanted to say I found out about arnel pineda today. Is he a jlin too?

  • JoeTeam

    Same night?

  • Brent Yen

    On TV

  • kassiek

    Go lakers

  • real-dsb

    Not bad start for Lin in Q1. 7 pts, 3-6 fg, 1-2 3pt, 2 ast, 2 to, 1 stl, 2 reb, -11.

    He’s already matched his season high!

  • Dorothy

    Thanks. Did not see Lin doing that before.

  • kassiek

    Season high… lol

  • Michael

    I am beginning to think Hill is really hurt. Didn’t someone say he had a neck injury? He is slow and barely bends his knees.

  • BobbyH

    Look likes Lin takes Kobe’s advice to chuck 20 shots, if it goes in this rate. Great! At least his % is higher than most of the team.

  • BobbyH

    Shouldn’t the Lakers trainer know that if that’s the case?

  • kassiek

    The bench’s defense is better than the starters’.

  • Brent Yen

    more in 2012 I think

  • KL

    Seems like there is improvement in that the Lakers are committing less fouls.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Are they staggering Kobe and Lin?

  • BobbyH

    only for 1 minute.

  • BobbyH

    Take it back. Lin is still not in. Yes. I think so.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    OMG

  • real-dsb

    I didn’t know Asik was on the Lakers this year

  • Love Lin

    butterfingers.. sigh

  • Ken Chatsworth

    OMG 2 for Wes

  • BobbyH

    showing some life here. 6 points difference. They are beginning to get it.

  • kassiek

    Lakers needs to keep it close!

  • Rick Johnson

    Keep shooting those 3’s

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I’m impressed with Lakers. They do well thus far.

  • real-dsb

    Lakers within 3, actually staying competitive for now

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Should try to get Griffin into foul trouble in 2nd half.

  • real-dsb

    That was an awesome play. Lin sets the screen for Kobe. Kobe uses the screen, draws 2 defenders, passes to Lin. Lin immediately gets doubled/trapped. But Lin didn’t panic. Clippers feared an easy bucket and one defender pulled back. Lin attacked CP3, got past him into the lane, threw a couple fakes and shot a high jumper over DeAndre.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW didn’t expect Lakers to do much better than I believe it will. Keep it up JLin and Lakers. Go Go Go

  • kassiek

    So far so good. Once Lakers push Griffin to pick his 4th foul early on in the 3rd Q, it’s good for Lin.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Wes is terrible.

  • bolero

    nice one..composed

  • kassiek

    The progress is good for the lakers tonight!!

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Even if they lose at the end, if they can keep it close, it is good progress.

  • Pete Roces

    Hope L A can keep it close in the 2nd half and pull off an upset.

  • real-dsb

    Lin at the half: 9 pts, 4-8 fg, 1-3 3pt, 2 reb, 4 ast, 1 stl, 3 to. Lakers only down by 6 at the half.

    Already a season high in pts! =)

  • blubell

    Did we see a floater?

  • Brent Yen

    That certainly was…a nice one

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Offense!

  • Brent Yen

    Offense?

  • blubell

    LOL. Yes.

  • Michael

    Yes.

  • blubell

    At halftime..

  • blubell
  • Love Lin

    that was a good one, we all saw it.. he played quite aggresively tonite. gogogo Jeremy~~~

  • Brent Yen

    AS usual CP3 will try to foul Lin out in the 2nd half

  • Phew .. so relieved to see Clippers only shot 7-21 (33%) from 3PT land.
    That’s why the game is close at half-time

  • joyce ward

    Good things happen when you let Lin run the offense.

  • blubell

    LAL shooting 50% (20/40)

  • bolero

    I still missed his fancy move, pass, etc..

  • JoeTeam

    First time this season I saw contending … hope 2nd half continues to go well for this team.

  • BuzzerBeater

    As I said, I cannot watch the game but Im ecstatically surprised they’re only down 6.
    I expected a 40pt blowout by now.
    And am I reading this correctly…Jeremy used his FLOATER? sweet mother of god, we might actually be getting somewhere! :’)

  • haha nice fake by Lin on CP3 for the floater!

  • haha 63-62 LAL leading

  • JoeTeam

    He’s got some good D on him once he beats his first move, so that floater was a nice surprise.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Wow I consider this a win already

  • LAL looked unstoppable on offense.
    It’s good that LAL and LAC are in the bottom 1 and 2 in Points Allowed :]

  • orLinaryjoe

    Just tuned in after kid went trick or treatin. Wow!

  • Lin for 3333333333333333333333!!!!!

  • Wow.. MAmba’s reverse layup!!

  • Brent Yen

    I can not believe my eyes…

  • orLinaryjoe

    5 pt lead!!!!

  • BuzzerBeater

    yesss finally

  • blubell

    It’s Kobe and Jeremy show!!!

  • LAL made 7 straight to take 5pt lead. 72-67!!
    Lin is running the offense all right!

    Nice 1-2 with Kobe 😀

  • Pete Roces

    This is the Lin/Kobe combo we want to see! Awesome

  • Brent Yen

    I will be super happy even if they end up losing by 30

  • kassiek

    It is already a win to me!!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Rush Hour! !

  • Michael

    Master troll.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    They should keep attacking Griffin.

  • cheapjing

    i am not at home and i cant see the game. i am very happy that you guys are watching a good show! keep updating here please

  • reverse jinx! 😀

  • Brent Yen

    don say it! lol

  • Michael

    If I reverse jinx again, where are we at?

  • real-dsb

    is that Hill or Lamarcus?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Lakers Nation @LakersNation 7 minutes ago
    Linsanity has arrived.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Keep attacking their bigs

  • real-dsb

    When Chris Paul reached in with his arms to harass Lin on defense, Lin should have done the rip move and picked up a cheap foul just like CP does.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Who are the commentators?

  • Brent Yen

    I will always remember when 2 yrs ago CP3 did that to Lin and get a TOV. CP3 was so mad afterward.

  • Michael

    Ryan Ruocco and Brent Barry on LP

  • Michael

    Haha yeah… CP3 does cry a lot..

  • Brent Yen

    Asgard.

  • cheapjing

    are they good to lin?

  • Brent Yen

    Are they good to Lin?

  • JoeTeam

    I’m liking the endgame, wonder if Kobe or Lin get a rest, if the Bigs will foul out, etc.

  • Brent Yen

    WOW HI 5!!

  • BuzzerBeater

    vomitting@Brent Barry

  • real-dsb

    Lin running the second team

  • Michael

    Ryan really likes Lin but maybe tries to stay neutral when commentating, Brent I don’t know… more star friendly I guess.

  • real-dsb

    Ell, Sacre, Clarkson

  • cheapjing

    brent, keep updating me pls. i am not at home! cant watch the game

  • Michael

    Ryan used to host a show with Robin Lundberg before. Both are Lin believers.

  • cheapjing

    hahaha. high 5.

  • real-dsb

    bad drive by Lin, he can’t jump with no angle to shoot/pass. Just got to pull it down and dribble back around.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    I like this new jersey.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Should have thrown a floater.

  • blubell

    Looks like Jeremy will get a double double.

  • Brent Yen

    He will have to do those more, not that it is good. I mean that is the only way to time the bigs, just for gaining experiences

  • Michael

    Did Hill hear all my criticism XD.

  • cheapjing

    seriously, it is a lucky charm jersey. should where it every game

  • JoeTeam

    Liking the mentality of the 2nd unit … not giving it up.

  • blubell

    and Brent’s lol

  • BuzzerBeater

    I see Jeremy has had 0 FTs, is he not getting calls or genuinely not getting fouled?

  • Michael

    I will only say this once. Thank you Brent.

  • cheapjing

    clarkson plays only 3 mins up to now? what is up with that?

  • real-dsb

    Lin after 3 quarters: 14 pts, 6-11 fg, 2-5 3pt, 3 reb, 9 ast, 2 st, 4 to.

  • TTNN

    Jeremy double double watch!

  • cheapjing

    he has a good game so far with your push

  • Michael

    I just saw Woodson on the Clippers Assistant Coach bench?

  • Brent Yen

    He was not seaking it

  • Brent Yen

    YES

  • cheapjing

    hope lakers win. it will be karma

  • Michael

    That would be so cool. How old are you five?

  • Brent Yen

    I like Lin is collecting good and bad plays for himself. TOVS will be cut down once you get more reps…you take out the bad one and keep doing the good one.

  • real-dsb

    just like Lebron, Lin is having a bounceback game =)

  • Maknusia

    I’m lovin it go baby

  • JoeTeam

    dunno, but now I’m just waiting for Lin and Kobe to come back to close this out.

  • Maknusia

    LAL really need to watch the PFs

  • real-dsb

    clarkson is a really bad defender

  • Maknusia

    Jeremy for Double-Double!!!

  • Maknusia

    lol rookies

  • orLinaryjoe

    Guess what my lucky charm is? Tell you when it is over.

  • Maknusia

    Good long 3 by Clarkson!

  • Maknusia

    Kobe is back

  • JoeTeam

    It’s ok, he gave a foul and he has a few to burn – stopped an easy 2.

  • blubell

    Brent and Michael, looks like Sacre can use your criticisms.

  • cheapjing

    lol

  • TTNN

    Sacre is horrible.

  • AllKpop<3Ailee'sBoobies

    The clippers have great assistants: Mike Woodson, Lawrence Frank, Sam Cassell

  • Michael

    I like what he did the first 3 quarters though.

  • Maknusia

    Buck up guys….Q4 start not been good

  • Maknusia

    This is the real JHill…comes to play today

  • Hill is having a monstrous game

  • BuzzerBeater

    Can the game please just end now already!!
    *hyperventilates into paper bag*

  • Maknusia

    hahah we wish we wish…but not before the double double

  • Pete Roces

    where is Lin? he is not at the bench

  • Maknusia

    he is in now

  • Pete Roces

    ok

  • Finally, Lin back in with 6.5 min left
    101-99

  • Love Lin

    hill is hot tnite.. keep the lead, plz.:)

  • cheapjing

    he has 5 fouls now. so is ed. boozer 4

  • Let’s go, Jeremy!!!

  • Maknusia

    ALL the bigs are at foul trouble…Kobe and Jeremy need to pick up some fouls

  • this is ShowTime :]

  • JoeTeam

    Great setup for end game heroics … best game so far this year!

  • Rick Johnson

    Keep aggressive Jeremy. Don’t just start throwing it in to Kobe.

  • SamC89

    Just got off work and haven’t been able to watch the game. Lin’s box score looks decent, but can someone give me a quick summary of his contribution? I saw they were down by 10 or so before. Was Lin a crucial part of the come back? Thanks!

  • Maknusia

    Lin and Kobe been doing all the hard work and Hill is benefiting from open shots

  • yes. … 7-8 straight made shots by Lakers.. Lin kept finding Hill, give-and-go with Kobe, got assist from Kobe on his 3 too

  • SamC89

    Wow! Sweet! Thanks for the update!

  • SamC89

    Thanks! Man, now my heart is beating really quick because if they win it’ll be so much sweeter!

  • Interesting, Kobe guards CP3 and Lin guards Redick

  • Brent Yen

    To save Kobe

  • orLinaryjoe

    My favorite color tonight.

  • Maknusia

    The bigs are gonna foul out….the replacements need to be ready to take the load

  • AllKpop<3Ailee'sBoobies

    That was what it was at the start too. However, JJ was running wild around screens and hit open shots and Lin was having trouble

  • cheapjing

    lol

  • Maknusia

    sweet baby best shot of the game!

  • orLinaryjoe

    LIN!!!

  • Lin off-balance 3!!!!!!!!! My goodness!

  • JoeTeam

    Kobe and JLin hug huddle!

  • orLinaryjoe

    And he hits a 3!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Koberemy is real :’)

  • JoeTeam

    I’m going to say LAC are getting the calls.

  • Maknusia

    i know bad shot…..but missed the shoulder to shoulder hug

  • blubell

    Wow… refs…

  • Maknusia

    darn ref

  • That’s a big FOUL by DeANDRE Jordan!!!
    REfs are bought by CP3!

  • JoeTeam

    DJ should have found out on that.

  • DeAndre should have been fouled out!

  • Maknusia

    cool!!! foul on CP!!!

  • That’s one bad shot by Kobe

  • Maknusia

    comeone…some dumb moves…but as long as they are playing hard…i’m fine

  • JoeTeam

    If I didn’t know Lin and Griff get along swell, I’d be a bit po’d

  • Maknusia

    game is too close…LAL need to pull away like NOW

  • yeah sorry but he can’t ‘lose’ the ball like that :]

  • Michael

    Maybe they do, Griffin gave Lin a call.

  • Lam

    is jeremy going to get free throws after the timeout?

  • Michael

    Yes.

  • JoeTeam

    gave back 2 pts, ha ha.

  • I marked myself as Spam :]

  • Lam

    thanks. Just following game on gamecast.

  • Maknusia

    One Thing he Team and Scott need to realize is that they are taking the shots way too early when there is still time on the clock. Its been such the last 3 games..

    Hope the Coaches sees that. I would rather see some extra 2 or 3 passes or a pass back….the forced shot like Kobe did earlier…is not necessary when the clock has 5s

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe cold Jeremy got to take over

  • Michael

    Seems I was wrong sorry XD.

  • That;s one big 3 by Ellington to tie the game 109-109

  • Maknusia

    neck to neck here

  • Maknusia

    defense!!!

  • cheapjing

    lin didn’t get one assist in this quarter. did he stop his aggressiveness?

  • Maknusia

    3 pt lead for LAC

  • Brent Yen

    Sort of….

  • JoeTeam

    no, he came in 6.5, and they’ve been working the post.

  • 21.3 seconds left down 3.
    Who’s gonna take the last shot? Kobe or … even Lin?

  • SamC89

    Even if the Lakers lose I’m still going to be happy. Lin seems to have found his groove and the team is starting to work well together. I can see a lot of potential from now forward.

  • blubell

    OT?

  • Maknusia

    if its last shot then it need to be a 3

  • Brent Yen

    Ellinton?

  • SamC89

    Too bad Nash isn’t there 🙁

  • Maknusia

    yeah one game at a time…as long as we see improvement…thats all good

  • cheapjing

    oh man. i want them to win 1 so bad

  • Maknusia

    missedit

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Too bad. Lakers is losing.

  • Maknusia

    tough!!!

  • Maknusia

    Which ever way it goes…its all good news for LAL and Jeremy

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Down 5 with 15 seconds to go.

  • JoeTeam

    I’d say the refs helped out Clips by not fouling out DJ when he smacked Lin down. That’s no DJ and a 4pt differential.

  • Maknusia

    thats part of the game and NBA…it is what it is…we have seen thruout NBA…at times we get calls and others not

  • Lakers will lose, I think. 5 pts down with 15 seconds left.
    Hope Lin gets his 10th assist

  • Love Lin

    improving each game.. tmrw’s game wil be better.. 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    I’m not whining, it just felt like a series of whistles for Clips.

  • cheapjing

    is it a home game?

  • BuzzerBeater

    Aw man, they were so close 🙁
    This wouldve been a huge confidence booster, I hope it still is for them. They played great against a contender who had the refs on their side.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I want that too but seem like unlikely to happen. Lost!

  • yes, that’s a 4pt swing. Ref took it away.
    DeAndre should have fouled out

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Result 118-111. Lakers lost the game!

  • Maknusia

    Good Game folks…..we outta be happy for the team, hard plays…good ball movement for 3Qs, good team play. Jeremy and Kobe was superb. Kobe played alot unselfishly

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s clutch 3.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    So proud of JLin and Lakers tonight. They play like a very good and high level team.

  • Michael

    Good game.

  • Maknusia

    yeah…i was fisting as well

  • Lam

    Need to see this for the next few games .

  • Michael

    If only someone didn’t say they would lose by 30.

  • Maknusia

    Lets see if they keep it going….slow and steady wins the race

  • orLinaryjoe

    Light years better this game all around. Be ready for the next one.

  • It’s a close loss. But Lin with 17pt/9ast is a great progress!
    Lakers played like a real team now 🙂

    No shame in this loss. Ref did their part to give favorable calls to Clippers.
    Lakers only missed on the execution down the line. That can be improved later.
    Things are really looking up 🙂

  • SamC89

    Wow, did not realize they have another back-to-back. That’s a brutal schedule!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin is exceeding my expectation! He is 17 pts and 9 assists. He did play very very well.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Still deferring too much to Kobe at the end though. And he choked.

  • Maknusia

    i had 25/8!!! :(…but still happy the way he played…its A to A- for me

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin got deprived of his 3. Could have been a 20pt/8ast+ game. Move forward.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    As the announcers said, the play was designed for Kobe not JLin. In time it will. Kobe is still The BOSS!

  • AllKpop<3Ailee'sBoobies

    Does anyone of a gif of DJ hacking Lin at the end there?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Look on the bright side. It wasn’t Lin missing that 3. Or it could’ve been him making it. Who knows.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    hahahaha Mine is 16/7 I believe:-) You can’t fly too high from 2 low games:-) Am just glad that JLin finds his role and niche for this game. He really overcomes his “struggle” very quickly this time.

  • Kobe is the man so he gets to be the hero.
    Over time, Lin might the call if Kobe approves or retires

  • SamC89

    Losing a close game is often expected of a team that hasn’t played together much. The Cavs should have actually lost to the Bulls if not for a few favorable calls by the refs.

    As Kobe and the team trust Lin more and more, I’m really excited to see how things will improve now. Hopefully this game put a fire in the rest of them.

  • SamC89

    What Lin did was definitely right for now. But as the season progresses, I hope Lin will try other tactics first before just handing it off to Kobe. I feel that if he had tried to drive or draw defenders away, then he could have helped Kobe or anyone else getting a better shot.

  • blubell

    Darn you refs!!

  • TTNN

    he got Kobe and coaches’s support. That’s huge.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep. Didn’t expect to find the “solution” so quickly. Thought it might take few more games and they will lose big tonight but it didn’t until refs took the game from them. With no call on JLin for being hammer by DeAndre Jordan. You can see everywhere it says so and he should foul out. Then the whole game ends in different story.

    Please repost in postgame. Tks!

  • Michael

    They did get Kobe on CP3 that is quite a good mismatch. Kobe’s legs’ were just tired by then. Too bad.

    Sorry. Just close down the page and restart again and/or close off website and start from afresh. Very annoying with this server I know. Happen to me quite often.

  • bolero

    tired legs

  • bolero

    agreed

  • bolero

    I love that . In your face CP3

  • Brewkowski

    Just finished watching game. Great effort by Lakers, Lin and Kobe played well. Hill hit the open mid range shots created by the double on Lin or Kobe.

    The reason Clippers won was due to refs bailing Clippers with ticky-tack calls that we’re not reciprocated for Lakers. Clippers had too many FTs. Griffin’s scoring was effortless and impressive.

    I like Lin’s aggressiveness and leadership. The team responded to his play calling. I really like Davis – he’s a smart basketball player. Disappointed in Boozer’s overall play.
