Will the Lakers finally get their 1st Win after starting 0-5 in the tough schedule?

As LA Times Game Preview described, the biggest challenge from the Hornets are Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker.

Jordan Hill and Jeremy Lin would have the main tasks to contain them. I think Jeremy historically has done quite well to match up against Kemba.

Outlook

The Lakers are desperate for a win. They’ve been off since Tuesday after a very heavy start to the season. The extra time to prepare and rest should go a long way.

Charlotte, a playoff team last season, has a tough, gritty squad, but they can struggle to score on occasion.

The Lakers, if they can somewhat contain Jefferson and Walker, should be able to notch their first victory of the season.Β

  • Yascar

    First? Did I make it? πŸ™‚

  • Congrats! I believe this is your 1st Win :]

  • @TWCSportsNet We’re just under three hours from tip-off at Staples Center. It won’t be this empty for long.

    https://twitter.com/TWCSportsNet/status/531594145174130689

  • Yascar

    Yup! Yey! Now we need a first win for the Lakers!!! Let’s go Jeremy!

  • Weifang

    I am ready for the first win. I just don’t want imagine the consequence of losing this game.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Not even bronze metal here?

  • blubell

    Homecourt advantage!

  • orLinaryjoe

    We’ll take any advantage

  • well, there’ll be more pressure for sure but as long as Lin gives his best, stays healthy and Lakers are playing like a team, that’s all that we can ask for .

    A big W would be such a big bonus for sure. I don’t even care if they get an ugly win haha..

  • Michael

    Congrats (*ο½€οΌΎΒ΄)=3

  • blubell

    Does he mean line up change?

  • John Lee

    That No.2 scorer can be Lin…or Davis if he was allowed to start and PNR with Lin. Boozer is a defensive liability while Davis has shown both talent AND effort on D.

  • John Lee

    Byron still has cronyist tendency with Price.

  • NJ Nets game, baby!

  • blubell

    Just say it… Lisanity!

  • John Lee

    7-5 here we come! πŸ™‚

  • I like it. 5 games for those struggling on defense (yes, Booz) to get better or else … :>

  • John Lee

    “Ed Davis has been among the league’s most efficient scorers so far. His 66.7 field goal percentage is tied for third in the NBA with Cory Joseph.”

    Yet somehow BS is stuck on Boozer…

  • but but .. J doesn’t like it :>

  • blubell

    Ooo, first time wearing the white jerseys at home

  • real-dsb

    Can’t watch the game live tonight, but go Lin and Lakers!

  • Arsenium12 .

    Not sure it’s comforting to have Lin lumped in with those two.

  • blubell

    I don’t like it either but it is what it is…

  • Alaingrvis

    it will have to be lin. kobe says it all the time. coach dont want to pile on.

  • orLinaryjoe
  • Pete Roces

    any good links

  • spiderman

    Initially thought Scott was just coy with the media, but have realized that he is just DENSE.

    Lakers losing pattern will not end as long as Scott is enamored with Boozer, Price and Johnson

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    For crying out loud, Jeremy has always been stepping up.. until someone hogs the ball.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Too bad I have a webinar at 9:15 till 10:15. I’ll miss the first half. Have to rely on Blaiyan the MVP of Highlights again.

  • John Lee

    To his credit, at least he’s kind of off the Ellington wagon.

  • blubell

    Too bad. So many of us are missing tonight’s game…

    Lakers look for their first win of the season tonight against the Hornets. VIDEO: http://t.co/s7BV9YO40V— Lakers Nation (@LakersNation) November 10, 2014

  • John Lee

    While waiting for the game, I looked up former Linsanity partners Fields and Novak: both left on the bench to rot by their teams.

    Very sad, but at least Linsanity got them a good contract so they won’t be short on money.

  • CaliUSMC

    Looks like Kobe took a crapper before the game

  • DJSlik

    man another crucial crucial game for JLin. he simply cannot play a bad game. the media is going to freak until the lakers get their first win. the losing is creating the pressure. i can’t remember jeremy seemingly under so much pressure in houston–not even during the playoffs!

  • blubell
  • cali7

    A.C. Green says Lin needs minutes to do what he needs to do. He’s going to be key. Predicting 15/8 I think he said.

    Worthy says Davis needs Boozer minutes to do what he needs to do.

  • CaliUSMC

    I bet Worthy heard what Lin said on the radio few days ago. Probably butt hurt πŸ˜€

  • cali7

    I didn’t realize Hornets got Al Jefferson and Lance Stephenson

  • CaliUSMC

    Old news bro πŸ˜€

  • John Lee

    I’ve always LOVED A.C. Green, always hard working and no ego.

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC

    Jefferson is going to dominate

  • blubell

    Yeah, good role model.

  • spiderman

    a lot of talent left on the bench. But glad they’re being paid.

    Wish they could team up again with Lin

  • Drizzt

    Just make sure you have the pop-up blocker on: http://nbaliveonline.tv/la-lakers-live-streaming/

  • Drizzt

    I’m having less and less confidence in Scott as he continues to play Boozer/Hill instead of who ( Davis ) can help win games. smh

  • CaliUSMC

    Good miss Lin. Keep Shooting.

  • John Lee

    Four games in five days, nonetheless. And they won the games vs Clippers but the refs stole that one.

  • blubell

    Slow start…

  • CaliUSMC

    Kobe is just going to shoot. He knows MJ is watching.

  • CaliUSMC

    Good ag gressive drive lin!

  • blubell

    My gosh, Jeremy is fast!

  • Drizzt

    Come on Lin…keep playing like that!!!

  • John Lee

    Lin asked for the ball and Hill completely ignored him, waited for Kobe.

  • Nice, Lin’s first basket blowing by Kemba for an easy layup
    6-11

  • cali7

    Saw that.

  • Alaingrvis

    take boozer and wes out

  • cali7

    Is Boozer on that guy who made two 3s for the Hornets?

  • Bearness

    Hill did that like 3 times to Lin already.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not only that, believe Boozer does the same. Still wait to see whether it happens even more often.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not a good start and it continues, going to be a huge loss. Making no sense of starters froze JLin.

  • Drizzt

    Yup, the announcers got it right. ‘It’s what you do, not what you say.’ Got that Hill & Bryant?

  • CaliUSMC

    why didnt lin shoot? wtff

  • Drizzt

    Same game…different team. smh

  • Good to see Kobe passing to Lin to either take a 3 or drive.
    Didn’t work but good to see

  • cali7

    Bad starts every game so far.

  • Drizzt

    Gooooo Lin!!!

  • CaliUSMC

    was that the ‘secret’ floater?

  • Drizzt

    I like the announcer…he’s giving credit every time Lin drives.

  • Alaingrvis

    boozer step it up Wes the only one struggling

  • cali7

    If Lin was playing with others that ran the floor, he could have just passed it for an easy dunk/alley-oop/lay-up. Still he made offense happen. go Lin!

  • blubell

    Stu Lance is very fair.

  • LW

    There is a serious flaw with the Lakers starting lineup and Scott is still not making any changes. They have started by falling behind in all 6 games!

  • John Lee

    Any normal non-hating announcer is supposed to do that. Houston’s hating situation was a travesty.

  • cali7

    Price in

  • cali7

    Kobe and Boozer, Price, Davis, Jonson

  • cali7

    Kemba just scored on Price twice.

  • Drizzt

    I still don’t understand Scott’s resistance to having Lin & Davis on the floor at the same time. Isn’t it strategic to have what works on the floor? smh

  • John Lee

    BS’ love for Price will cost him big.

  • MoominFloren

    Expected….

  • Q1 3:40 Lin and rested. Price/Davis in
    Lakers only trailing 14-17.
    Let’s hope the bench keep it close

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Very interesting to take JLin out and not Kobe @ 3:21 Left 1st qtr

  • John Lee

    I believe the lack of faith and/or respect comes straight from BS.

  • cali7

    Alas, bench did not. 23-18, Lakers trailing

  • MoominFloren

    Because they are tanking…..

  • Nice hustle by Price for the steal and Ellingon for the finish. 18-23

  • John Lee

    BS was all BS about limiting Kobe’s minutes.

  • Drizzt

    I’m starting to believe it. Scott is definitely not making moves to win.

  • 7iger

    hmm… just login and seen like Kobe going to play 12 minutes straight

  • MoominFloren

    I bet Kobe will only have 42 min ONLY

  • they’ve been doing that for a few games to let Kobe the playmaker while Lin is out.
    Let’s see if Kobe will rest in Q2 while Lin be the playmaker.

  • LAJane

    Didn’t want to go there, but geez…

  • CaliUSMC

    Why would they tank this game…. They need a win Lol

  • 7iger

    His name is BS for a reason.

  • cali7

    It actually makes no sense to keep Kobe in the entire first quarter. He should save Kobe for the end of the game at least. Unless they are tanking which I still can’t believe

  • cali7

    good point. Let’s see…

  • John Lee

    Staggering Lin/Davis minutes is a VERY clear indication. After all, that was the ONLY proven effective offense during preseason.

  • Pete Roces

    Another loss coming unless BS let Lin play more minutes and pnr with davis.

  • CaliUSMC

    Top Performers

    Cha:. K. Walker 6 Pts, 2 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl

    LAL:. J. Lin 4 Pts, 2 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl

  • LW

    Lakers trailing the other team, it’s becoming a tradition.

  • cali7

    Atrocious offense in the first Q. Again.

  • LAJane

    Seemed like that to me too.

  • Drizzt

    Yup, that’s what I’m seeing too. Almost like Scott is afraid what Lin/Davis can accomplish.

  • Weifang

    If Lin can lead those young guns, it’s an easy blowout game.

  • John Lee

    Price blowing 3 shots and negative on D.

  • cali7

    Kemba got at least 4 points when Price was on him for those keeping tabs. Missed the beginning of game so can’t account for the first 2

  • Spyckie

    boozer gives up so many points… πŸ™

  • 7iger

    BS rotation are questionable.

  • Drizzt

    The announcer even stated that Bryant is handling the ball ‘a lot’. Even when Lin is in, who brought the ball up? Bryant is all talk so far, no letting Lin control the ball. smh

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Can’t figure BS with his action on what’s working and not working. My take he doesn’t want JLin to shine but Price.

  • Lakers trailed 18-25 at the end of Q1.
    The bench just couldn’t defend well or produce points consistently

  • cali7

    I don’t dislike Price but Price isn’t quick either.

  • Love Lin

    Yes!!! ED..

  • cali7

    Davis dunk!

  • 7iger

    I bet Kobe will be in before Lin again.

  • Drizzt

    His whole coaching is questionable! lol

  • 7iger

    I don’t know anything bout him til he and Lin a Lakers.

  • cali7

    I truly believe that if Davis started for Boozer, the Lakers might have better starts.

  • 7iger

    Any NBA fan know that except BS, I guess just politic.

  • Good drive by Price plus And-1.
    Must have learned from Lin πŸ™‚

  • LAJane

    I’ll bet the story will be want Lin and Bryant to jell together and Davis to spark with 2nd unit. In the increasingly unlikely scenario that they’re not trying to tank (humph), seems to me it’d be better to throw your best resources, which would include the Davis/Lin successes into first unit because otherwise the opponent just gets too far ahead to catch up…

  • cali7

    Not just fans but the commentators. It’s been an constant question: to start or not start Davis. BS is just slow.

  • blubell

    Jeremy should be coming in after this timeout but will BS do it?

  • Drizzt

    Blindly slow…

  • bolero

    Price free throw..

  • Bench is playing a bit better in Q2 despite having trouble finishing.
    7-6 in Q2 before Price’s FT

    Q2 8:19 Lakers still trailing 25-31

  • blubell

    Right.. forgot.

  • Weifang

    I heard people are saying Byron is “rigid” with his plan.

  • cali7

    It seems BS also follows opposing team rotations for Lin. Like Lin came in and out based on Bledsoe to a certain extent.

  • I expect at 6min mark at the earliest

  • cali7

    Lin coming in

  • I love watching Davis around the rim πŸ™‚
    2-2 this game
    66%FG for the season

  • Love Lin

    old school person.. πŸ™

  • cali7

    Yup, Kobe in before Lin

  • John Lee

    Lin averaged 28.8 mpg, while Price 22.6. Price the backup PG playing 78% equivalent of starting PG’s minutes. I doubt any other team does this.

  • 7iger

    I was right, Kobe in b4 Lin

  • LAJane

    yeah…uh, no…Kobe πŸ™

  • Drizzt

    This is starting to look too familiar…hTown/haren.

  • 7iger

    Don’t think Lin will have any time without Kobe.

  • Drizzt

    Remind you of another place/player?

  • blubell

    Stu Lance: Give it back to Jeremy.
    lol

  • LOL
    Announcer: “Lin saved it. Wes is dribbling. … GIVE it back to JEremy!”

  • 7iger

    don’t even want to mention

  • cali7

    And Wes did.

  • Drizzt

    The announcer coaching better than Scott.

  • Weifang

    make sense

  • yeah, it might look that way

  • Barry Allen

    Great call by Worthy.

  • CaliUSMC

    Parsons (29mins) 1/9 – 4pts

  • Wise Wes πŸ˜€
    Lin got assist to Hill on the other end

  • missing his Bro, Lin!

  • John Lee

    Following his 1/11 from last game. 2/20 = 10% FG% at almost 15M, yet no one calling overrated.

  • Nice Lin talking to Ellington after 1st FT to give encouragement
    Made 2nd FT

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I’m right with BS rotation on JLin — always come in around 6m mark in 2nd qtr, never never play with Ed Davis or second unit. Too fear of someone to shine?

  • 7iger

    and the Beard 8/24

  • IsabeliJane*17

    1. Wanting Jeremy and Kobe to gel
    2. Wanting Ed to lift the bench by himself
    3. Wanting Jeremy to lift the starters
    4. Wanting Kobe to lift this team

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Another observation, Kobe doesn’t kick the ball out to JLin while he is wide open.

  • cali7

    Who is defending Marvin Williams? three threes

  • could be πŸ™‚
    I give the benefit of the doubt for Lin and Kobe to grow chemistry ..about 10%

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hope u r right but I become very skeptical in the last few games. Let’s wait and see in 4th qtr.

  • Kobe did once in Q1 but not after he drove inside

  • 7iger

    She just being sarcastic

  • Drizzt

    Obviously no one. Who is assigned to guard him is unknown.

  • LAJane

    Me too, thinking that would be the story…but I too am becoming skeptical…

  • cali7

    Williams just made another 3. All of them have been in the same place.

  • Weifang

    that’s just the noise in Kobe’s iso system.

  • Love Lin

    Scott knows how good it was when lin played w/Davis in preseason gms, why he denies the truth?… πŸ™

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thought he wanted JLin to attack. That’s the only time and JLin scored.

  • 7iger

    Kobe holding the ball at this rate my 24/7 prediction is down the drain.

    I was thinking they might change a little bit in turn of ball sharing after 0-5 but I guess not.

  • cali7

    and FTs? That’s his game

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well he wants to prove he is right: ABJ. He roots for Price and wants JLin to fail. That’s my read on the way he played JLin.

  • Skwo

    Way too many sets being run for kobe. not going to win the game like that

  • Drizzt

    I had doubts about Bryant being capable of changing his iso ball game, no matter what he & Scott was trying to sell, I’m sorry to say. My positive outlook for this team is going right down the drain w/each game. I just hope Lin starts looking out for himself and his next contract.

  • I think I see Lin’s role as the primary decoy to free up Kobe to score

  • Barry Allen

    decoys only work if you pass to them sometimes.

  • Drizzt

    He’s also the primary decoy to cover up Bryants/Scott’s inability to lead this team to a win.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dear Kobe, How in the world can Jeremy play relentlessly when he’s being way outright denied the ball?

  • LAJane

    !!!!!

  • LW

    6th straight loss on the way!

  • only decoy as a playmaker (Lin-Hill), not for Lin to score much

  • Drizzt

    Yup, this team is played by 1 ball & Bryant…what a joke.

  • 7iger

    If they don’t change the way they play the score gap will just be wider. I doubt anything will change.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I interpret what Kobe said that Jeremy should play relentless that he should score aggressively. The problem is how can he score without the ball?!?

  • Kemba started to attack Lin, Lin will need to give it right back to Kemba

  • CaliUSMC

    Kemba’s anticipating the drive b/c Lin’s shots are cold.

  • Bearness

    I guess he is supposed to rip it out of Kobe’s hands. That would be pretty relentless.

  • John Lee

    Mike Brown lost his job after seven games, BS vows to break his record!

  • Drizzt

    Lin needs to play relentlessly by getting in the other team players way, so Bryant can do his flashy chucking.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    If the game continues to show like this and Kobe begins to isos in second half, predict loss in double digits. BS and Kobe will not let JLin to do his job; just lip service from them. JLin can’t play with invisible ball in Lakers.

  • blubell

    so should we hope for a loss? lol.

  • LAJane

    You may be right…and if he followed Kobe’s lead he’d need a boatload of bricks to “score aggressively”

  • Pete Roces

    This will be another loss for LA, BS is not adjusting, pls let Davis start, that’s the only way LA will win first game, set more picks for Lin, multiple if needed so he can penetrate and PnR with Davis or Boozer, btw Wes is definitely a bench player.

  • John Lee

    Kobe 4/11, shooting Lakers into 6th loss.

    19 minutes at the half, so planning on playing 38 min instead of 44. Such sacrifice! LOL

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • 7iger

    If u have Kobe behind you no worry bout getting fire.

  • Lakers desperately needs Lin/Davis in the 2nd half.
    But not sure if BScott is willing to give Lin time with Davis w/o Kobe on the floor.

    Such as shame not use the lethal Lin/Davis PnR

  • John Lee

    It is clear that the Lin/Davis disconnect is INTENTIONAL.

  • cali7

    It’s almost as if it Lin/Davis PnR never happened the way BS abandoned it.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Is BS allergic to adjustment like McHale? Oh dear Lord…

  • 7iger

    You can see clearly BS is play not to win.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has to drive no more threes

  • I really hope Byron tries Lin/Davis in Q3 w/o Kobe just to see if there is a spark.

  • Bearness

    I agree. They are never together.

  • blubell

    Who said in game adjustment is overrate? was it McHale?

  • John Lee

    Kobe won’t be behind ANYONE after seven losses. Mamba will bite.

  • 7iger

    Yup

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yep, the one and only McHale.

  • CaliUSMC

    Why doesn’t Lin shoot any mid range J’s?

  • LAJane

    It’s kind of hard not to see it that way…..:(

  • orLinaryjoe

    I’m starting to think about the intentional flop theory, along with the Kobe record theory, and I’m usually very optimistic.

  • Pete Roces

    Assuming LA is not tanking, will BS be fired if LA goes 0-10?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    SHOULD BE, not sure if he WILL BE.

  • John Lee

    It’s not even about Davis starting anymore, they’re not even sharing floor time. BS seems to wanna force the Price issue.

  • orLinaryjoe

    No, 8.3 million dollar scapegoat.

  • LAJane

    Miss Pollyanna here is starting to tip over that way too….(big sigh)

  • orLinaryjoe

    Sorry.

  • CaliUSMC

    Stephen Curry – 10to’s in loss tonight against suns

  • LW

    You can’t really hope for anything with this lineup and the way they play.

  • Bearness

    Harden at least passed to Jeremy at the last minute. Kobe doesn’t pass, period.

  • MoominFloren

    That means he need to take his beloved veteran Boozer out from the starting lineup….he is also having the same agent with Kobe

  • Bearness

    If they didn’t mean to tank, whoever hired BS should be fired.

  • DJSlik

    how can i politely say that wesley johnson is a vomitous…..oh forget it. wesley johnson doesn’t deserve to play in china. he is quite possibly one of the worst players in the NBA today.

  • Pete Roces

    0-10 is definitely a reality judging from tonight’s play.

  • Drizzt

    If he’s not…then the plan is to tank. It’s becoming too blatantly obvious to fool people.

  • BobbyH

    I don’t see Lakers is playing for the win. It is a joke that BS and the team kept saying they desperately need a win. 4 days practices just show the same old same. No heart, no fire. Just lazy strides on the court. This is really an insult to BB fans.

  • DJSlik

    what….did you just type?? a secret code to the russians??

  • 7iger

    You will need to pray super hard for that to happen

  • LAJane

    Did you EVER think you’d be finding yourself typing such a thing….LOL+sigh

  • DJSlik

    i hope he’s fired if they go 0-10

  • Pete Roces

    that’s Kupchak! haha

  • MoominFloren

    The chance will be like 0.00000000001%

  • blubell

    Tough times for Jeremy’s fans…

  • CaliUSMC

    G-14 Classified

  • 7iger

    Can be even more.

  • Barry Allen

    Last minute passes are just to pad assists and bail you out of a bad shot.

  • DJSlik

    yeah but harden had the ball FIRST. here jeremy has the ball FIRST. so he can DECIDE to say F you guys i’m going iverson on you–too bad.

  • blubell

    Lol. Force Recon?

  • khomphuong2

    Passing last minutes are bad passes. So no thanks.

  • Jlinning

    lin THRIVES in a team first system like the Spurs. So far he has ended up on the rockets and Lakers both of which have very selfish players with agendas. If Lin is going to be marginalized like this, then he might as well be on the rockets where he would at least WIN

  • DJSlik

    NO farking idea. none at all…blows my mind.

  • Drizzt

    Nope, Bryant brought up the ball just as much, if not more from the start of this game.

  • LAJane

    now I feel better

  • BobbyH

    How many times Lin was open behind the arc? Linvisibile.

  • Pete Roces

    ’09-’10 Nets starts their season 0-18, LA is definitely going for that record, bravo, job well done!

  • Drizzt

    lol…throw in Boozer into that.

  • CaliUSMC

    Negative. Got out 5 years ago.

  • Bearness

    LOL+sigh indeed. =(

  • DJSlik

    no…i’m not just talking about this game. overall, jeremy has had the ball to start the vast majority of laker possessions.

  • CaliUSMC

    He’s cold..

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ok Lin, gotta play some Kobe game.

  • blubell

    KObe passed!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    so a Jeremy 3…

  • Drizzt

    Yes…a long 3333333!

  • LW

    Keep this starting lineup and they will surely achieve that goal!

  • 7iger

    First kick to Lin form Kobe

  • orLinaryjoe

    yes!

  • John Lee

    Boozer got decent midrange, but slow on defense. I don’t see Wes’ upside.

  • Drizzt

    Kobe…you’re not Lin! smh

  • LAJane

    the sky has fallen

  • MoominFloren

    Ok… Lin has to shoot 7 more times

  • orLinaryjoe

    Too slow of an offense for Lin

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I miss those J-reverse….

  • blubell

    Nice D and a reverse πŸ™‚

  • MoominFloren

    lol

  • LW

    Hey! Kobe to Lin, Lin to Kobe, Kobe to Lin!

  • Bearness

    Yes, Lin does get the ball more than when he was in Rockets. But, he tries to be a good team player and initiate some ball movement, only to see the ball never comes back to him even if he’s open. I’ll give these Lakers players credit for one thing at least. They don’t shy away from a (bad) shot.

  • John Lee

    NOW we’re talking! See Kobe? You gotta shave WITH the grain!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Love the lin reverse! missed that

  • Drizzt

    Ya, definitely not an ideal game for Lin. No one moves quickly or much on this team.

  • bolero

    nice reverse finally

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    If they do this, there is a chance for win:-)

  • LAJane

    What happened! Did they pass out ‘shrooms or something during the break?

  • khomphuong2

    I think Kobe read someone complained about Kobe doesn’t pass here.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Dam, pigs fly

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dear Kobe, if you want Jeremy to play relentlessly, pass to HIM!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I sent him a mental telepathy

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Could be. At least he makes adjustments.

  • orLinaryjoe

    We’ll start a letter campaign!

  • 7iger

    You see a flying tiger right now

  • 7iger

    I think Lin officially become a lefty

  • orLinaryjoe

    That was Lin flying, I was speaking of Kobe.

  • Barry Allen

    Great job keep up that telepathic connection!

  • LAJane

    what hellfire did you promise unless he straightened up and flew right?

  • MoominFloren

    Keep doing it for the whole season!

  • 7iger

    I was speaking of me flying.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    H***’s mouth will open in Staples Center lol

  • cali7

    and a high five from Kobe.

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • Drizzt

    He had to. Now he has to become an elite defender. Next…..next….next…

  • CaliUSMC

    Lakers 1/10 for 3pters. Lin the only one!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s trying to be ambidextrous. That’s sexy. You know what they say about a man’s hands…..

  • 7iger

    uh oh

  • LAJane

    You go girrrrrrlll…:D

  • Drizzt

    They’re always dirty? lol

  • LAJane

    That’s sexy too…hahaha

    Edit: At least to the girl with intimate knowledge of the workings of 2-part epoxy filler….LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Sit down Boozer and Hill with those fouls and not getting rebounds for the love of strawberry jam!Bring Davis in.

  • 7iger

    Lakers big are sucks at rebound.

  • Barry Allen

    I thought that was the feet? Isn’t that what clowns like people to believe?

  • BuzzerBeater

    Great ball denial by Jeremy there

  • Lin did a great job denying Kemba to get the ball

  • Drizzt

    Some one needs to tell them that feet movement is required.

  • blubell

    Davis is in with Jeremy?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Isn’t that supposed to be for the guys? Guys love looking at girls’ feet? That’s why there’s pedicure and foot spa and stuff like that.

  • Davis is in!!!
    Q3 5:57

  • blubell

    desperation kicked in…

  • Love Lin

    ED is in.. C’mon! Show us some nice combos w/Lin..~~ πŸ™‚

  • MoominFloren

    YES ….keep Lin in the game pleaseeeeee

  • LAJane

    Pigs really are flying tonight!

  • Announcer: “That’s a good read by Jeremy, good spin by Boozer!”

  • 7iger

    Your prayer is heard. Thanks to Hill fouls

  • MoominFloren

    Wow that 0.000000000001% chance happened !

  • Bearness

    nice pass to Boozer!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy is making Boozer look like a savior on offense. Nice pick and pop though

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL only because Hill foul trouble.

  • Drizzt

    I really like this announcer, whoever he is. He’s had nothing but positive things to say about Lin and fair team assessments.

  • Lindigestion on BS’ part :]

  • blubell

    So, how is the webinar? lol

  • 7iger

    Now JLin just need 1 asst and 15 points to reach my prediction.

  • anddan

    Lin & Davis on the court at the same time…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    @MarkG_Medina Thanks for pointing out the obvious in the past 6 games. JLin can't be aggressive/assertive for playing with invisible ball.— Melody Ting (@MelodyTing3) November 10, 2014

  • If Lakers win, let’s call it accidental ‘win’ πŸ˜€

  • LW

    Is Wesley Johnson doing any good in there? He is 0-4, 1 reb.

  • bolero

    good so far

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Enlightening.Both the webinar and seeing Jeremy play again lol

  • cali7

    Kobe also passed to Lin there. Just let Lin run the offense

  • orLinaryjoe

    At least someone seeing this

  • cali7

    Stu pointing out that Lin and Davis had a good run together preseason

  • LW

    He sounds like from this site.

  • Love Lin

    lol.. trolling.. πŸ™‚

  • AllKpop<3Ailee'sBoobies

    Lin state update please!

  • Love Lin

    Lin 4 the 2nd 3…..

  • anddan

    3!!! from Kobe again!

  • John Lee

    Hornets trying to poke Davis’ eyes out for fear of Lin/Davis connection.

  • Lin for 3333333!

  • 7iger

    Wow can’t believe my eyes, Lakers is leading.

  • Drizzt

    Come ooooon Liiiiin for a wiiiiin!!

  • Kobe for 333333333!

  • cali7

    cross-court pass from Kobe to Lin for 3!

  • Pete Roces

    finally they wake up!

  • Love Lin

    cant believe myself, either.. πŸ™‚

  • cali7

    Some guy has a sign “LIN ING”

  • My goodness.. that’s one GOOD-Looking 3 by Lin!

  • LW

    I think they’ve found their starting lineup! Only if Scott is not too blind to see it!

  • 7iger

    Noo!! my kid close my game windown

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Is that Gary Neal from Spurs who looked good within Spurs system?

  • cali7

    Yup

  • yeah, Davis anchoring defense and gathering rebounds.
    The rest can score πŸ™‚

    Great spacing!

  • Drizzt

    That’s the way Lin!!!

  • CaliUSMC

    INSANITY

  • MoominFloren

    Unbelievable so far tonight
    Kobe pass
    Lin + Davis
    and Lakers lead !

  • orLinaryjoe

    lin bank

  • orLinaryjoe

    no, not to kobe

  • Q3 2:18 Kobe rested.
    Lin/Davis show pleeeeease!

  • 7iger

    First time Kobe out before Lin

  • blubell

    interesting line-up

  • orLinaryjoe

    no to kobe-i-is-slo

  • Ellington for 3!
    Q3 1:40 left 72-63 Lakers lead

  • blubell

    Can we get some alley oops?

  • Linsanity lineup :]

  • cali7

    Kobe already played 29 minutes. He needs to rest.

  • blubell

    So it begins πŸ™‚

  • Lin 16pts/6asts

  • 7iger

    If continue this way my 24/7 is within reach

  • joyce ward

    That’s the way you do it lin. Drown out the noise from the coach and others and play your game.

  • CaliUSMC

    Ronnie price wants to the the PG.

  • blubell

    Yes, KObe, this is team ball.

  • Announcer: “Price with the ball .. Ball should be with Jeremy Lin, though”

    Then PRice/Davis for and-1. Good enough πŸ™‚

  • LAJane

    V happy to be ahead…but so confused (in a momentarily happy way). BS seems to be trying every option on the menu tonight. Really have no idea if he’s tanking, or just v. slow to turn the wheel in the best direction, or experimenting with his pieces in a wily way…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Davis is the ONLY Laker big toughing it on the inside and rebounding.

  • JoeTeam

    Intesting Ronnie Price finish to the quarter. Team trust, no need to go to Lin. I don’t mind if Kobe takes his shots if he makes them like today..

  • blubell

    I love Stu!~

  • 7iger

    I think cause Lin is the better shooter.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Im loving Price-Lin-Ellington-Davis on the floor at the same time!

  • you got a chance to win the bragging rights πŸ˜€

  • Drizzt

    Not a great job of it either. The announcer said the ball should have been in Lin’s hands. haha

  • 7iger

    First time Lakers lead by double digits

  • JoeTeam

    It’s ok, they did good.

  • Bearness

    Ugh, my stream died. Anyone know a good free stream without those weird pop ups?

  • Alaingrvis

    i agree boozer was good today him and lin dominated this quarter

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’d like to rub Stu Lance’s shiny head and say “thanks for saying it as it should be!”

  • BuzzerBeater

    Ed missed a free throw >:[ another 200 practice FTs for him after the game

  • 7iger

    hehe

  • Stuuuuuuuuu! :]

  • cali7

    Hill grinning from the bench.

  • bolero

    wow. everything moves fast with the bench including Lin

  • blubell

    Lansanity?!

  • Dorothy
  • IsabeliJane*17

    yeech on the Lin pun! lol

  • bolero

    who’s the guy with the Lin Ning sign..

  • nbaliveonline.tv?

  • Bearness

    ty =)

  • Q3 Lakers outscored Hornets 34-13

    That’s crazy good!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    My minion. Lol

    Whoever he is, bring it on!

  • Bearness

    thank you =)

  • Is that from Li-Ning shoe company? :]

  • CaliUSMC

    Thats awesome.

  • cali7

    They just need to keep it up. Let’s hope they do!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Jeremy’s finally getting some rest, lets hope they can hold on this lead!

  • joyce ward

    They are playing a two guard line up. Lin becomes a scoring guard in this line up. Between he and Ellington they need to make the points. I think we will see this lineup a lot in the future.

  • blubell
  • Q4 starts without Lin/Boozer/Kobe.
    Stu is a bit worried.

    Hope the bench can maintain the same lead until 6th min mark

  • CaliUSMC

    Zeller was nasty

  • 7iger

    Watch where u click though. look for X to close ad windows and carefully watch which window is on top

  • Bearness

    Just realized Clarkson hasn’t played at all. Maybe BS does want to win, although he shouldn’t have played Wes at all either then.

  • Great steal by Price.. Struggling at shooting by nice D!

  • MoominFloren

    NO! “I’m 26 I can play 48” said Lin

  • JoeTeam

    he’s a good big, has moves.

  • blubell

    Jeremy has half of the 4 makes πŸ˜‰

  • CaliUSMC

    Great defense Lakers

  • BuzzerBeater

    Some great defensive plays by the current lineup! Please Lakers hold strong.

  • oh yeah, that’s weird

  • 7iger

    and 2 of those made by JLin.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    The @Lakers outscore the @hornets by 21 in the 3rd to take a 12 point lead into the 4th. Kobe and Lin have a combined 35pts. #LeaguePass

  • blubell

    Well, they do have something to smile about finally. Let’s hope it doesn’t turn into a frown πŸ™‚

  • Love Lin

    smiling all the way 2 the end.. πŸ™‚

  • BuzzerBeater

    Losing a bit of composure. Already in the penalty πŸ™

    Time to bring back Lin and dare I say Boozer (he was doing good offensively)

  • Good time-out by BS to with 8pt lead 79-71 before Hornets get some momentum.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I remember what Tony Parker said to Pop from a documentary,”What?Pop I’m 29! I can play more than 20!”

  • Smi-Lin, baby!!! πŸ˜€

  • Bearness

    Yeah, stop the bleeding. Hopefully, he will bring Lin back in to close out the game.

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    At the end of 3, Lakers lead (!) 76-64 as Jeremy Lin had 12 points in the quarter. Check out the highlights so far. http://t.co/f43J41kCnI

  • 7iger

    Better smile while they still can.

  • Love Lin

    another 3 was made by kobe?

  • LAJane

    hah…we’re conditioned to be wondering if another shoe is going to drop….

  • joyce ward

    I think Kevin Ding is becoming a fan of Lin. Before he was in the middle of the road about Lin, but Ding is actually kind of looking out for Lin. He let us know that lin was taking advil for a sore foot during the Phoenix game and also let us know that he might not be up to par for this game.

  • Bearness

    Lin +14, Davis +10 so far. Just ride out those two to close out the game BS!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The starters need Jeremy for an efficient offense. The bench needs Jeremy for efficient offense and leadership.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Lakers up 76-64 over Charlotte after 3rd Q. Bryant (19 points) has strong support from Lin (16 points) and Boozer (14 points)—

  • Love Lin

    nice pass by price 2 ed.. πŸ™‚

  • Price did quite good to make midrange J and led the break to feed Davis

  • Lin in with 7:36 left

  • Lin to Hill again!

  • Drizzt

    Come on Bryant…don’t go iso mode until the game is guaranteed…pleeeeeeez!

  • Bad possession by Lakers and Hornets

    Then Lin made his fadeaway jumper!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    I like that Jeremy!

  • BuzzerBeater

    There you go Jeremy. Let those mid-range jumpers fly, you’re not in HOU anymore XD

  • LAJane

    5 assists from Lin to Hill for made shots tonight, including the 1st Q opening layup.

  • Drizzt

    Come on Lin…let’s finish this w a wiiiiiiiin!!

  • bolero

    Good D by Lin so far…

  • CaliUSMC

    He got the ball back from hill and shot jumper? What happened? My internet froze!

  • 7iger

    100% fg for Davis

  • Lin with 18pts/7asts/3rebs with 5:39 left.

    Let’s go, Lin!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    On that replay before the break, Price is slowly starting to capitalize playing with Davis on the floor.

  • Drizzt

    He’s definitely having a complete game.

  • 7iger

    and 0% ft LOL

  • bolero

    I want to see more step back and reverse. oh yah 3 too…

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yea, too bad. that’s why we need Davis in.

  • All or nothing Man :]

  • Bearness

    Lin definitely plays better in 2nd half of the games than 1st.

  • bolero

    Kobe needs his point..

  • Drizzt

    Liking it….a lot!

  • 7iger

    I guess he likes to practice shooting ft.

  • Announcer: “Jeremy Liiin .. probably the best game of this season”

  • LAJane

    greed is good…..

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Me: Not YET

  • CaliUSMC

    Somewhere…… Charles Barkley is really happy right now.

  • John Lee

    If you have Lin shooting 10+ FGA, a win is almost a certainty. (Ball in hand and confident)

  • 7iger

    And 1 TO he knows that is another thing people want to talk about JLin.

  • Confidence is sky-high.
    He’s in a groove now πŸ™‚

  • 7iger

    Lin wide open and they keep try to post.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW JLin exceeds my expectation of him. Go JLin and breaks the 20 pts mark!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Honestly, he should go on a diet irregardless of how Lakers play lol

  • Drizzt

    lol…getting ready for the free buffet.

  • Lin for 3333333333 again after a broken play!!!! 21pts, BABY!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

  • Love Lin

    Barkely may stop the strike.. lol

  • BuzzerBeater

    In the 2nd half, Kobe has been simply catching and shooting, passing, and kept the ISOs to a minimum.
    Its been the secret to them holding onto the lead and extending it.
    Everyone’s getting touches and gotten into a rhythm, I wish he’d realize it.

  • John Lee

    Give Lin the PT and the ball, and the Lakers WILL win, not exactly Rocket science (pun absolutely intended)!

  • Jeremy Lin with 50% on 3FG (3-6)

  • blubell

    Let’s see how long Kobe retains this memory.

    think he might got scared when he almost injure his knee again.

    Should have keep Lin in to get 3 more points for me hehe

  • cali7

    JLin with Trudell – partner with Kobe continuing and learn to trust each other.

  • Briiick

    Hope they keep the chemistry. In particular, Kobe gives room for mistakes for his teammates.

  • blubell
  • Arsenium12 .
  • IsabeliJane*17

    And trust that his team mates can score rather than shoulder the scoring all by himself.

    This game changed in the 3rd Q only when Davis replaced Hill in the starting lineup. The Lakers better note this or they will lose the next game.

    I hope next time he can break his record of 9 3s..

    Lol Memphis will be another reality check.

  • bolero

    I like that one…

  • Drizzt

    That looks like a team ball!

  • John Lee

    This game changed when Kobe started allowing Lin handle the ball. Hill actually serviceable as midrange shooter and stay out of low post (so he’s not blocking driving lane).

  • bolero

    wow.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Stats look good when they’re distributed equally.

  • BobbyH

    Seems that BS heard Lin fans roars and made some half-time adjustment. πŸ˜‰

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That sounded like Grand Theft Auto or something like that.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He doesn’t want to be compared to McHale? lol

  • cali7

    BScott – Talked to JLin before the game and being more assertive. Thought he did that.

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s PER: 24
    Kobe: 13

  • John Lee

    Aye!

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin did have more of a bounce to him in the second half though.. lol

  • JoeTeam

    yes,
    Charlotte: avg 96.5 pts, so LAL did not improve much on D

  • joyce ward
  • bolero

    oh yah. As if they made it to the finals

  • IsabeliJane*17

    β€œHeeeere’s @disqus_W4kOOens57:disqus !”

  • bolero

    not Japanese algebra though..

  • BobbyH

    Yes. I saw that. Where were the bigs?

  • joyce ward
  • LAJane

    Kobe’s on board (his knee-jerk iso’s notwithstanding).I think Davis is too, and Jeremy was a rain-maker for Hill tonight, so hopefully that’s a lesson learned and something for others to notice and want a part of…

    Lin got out of nowhere.

    It was KOBE who got out of HIS comfort zone, MUCH to his credit.

    Better late than never.

  • DJSlik

    YEAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! what did i say?? 12 FGA = GOOD for the team. JLin the best player on the floor tonight. rinse and FFFFFING REPEAT! i picked him and kobe in my daily fantasy game and won $$$ BELIEVE!

    Great game tonight. Lin help carry Lakers to their first win!

  • blubell

  • John Lee

    Hill must be getting onboard after this game. Boozer’s been cool with Lin from the start.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I hope Jeremy finally gets that dancing banana rating from Lakersground’s Dancing Berry!

  • Love Lin

    Everyone must be pumped up in the locker room, so do we fans here.. just keep up the good work 2 the next few gms.. πŸ™‚

    @ToddKrieger1 2nd favorite Lin play, dribble left to right across lane in traffic, makes bank shot. The bank shot is one of Lin’s key plays.

  • Drizzt

    Exactly…

  • John Lee

    Actual money?

  • DJSlik

    of course! Draftkings.com LOL.

    Lin is the plus leader with +17 followed by Davis’ +12.

    “Assertive”! I like that word, as opposed to aggressive. More control with intention!

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    The white Sunday jersey looks good on him. Too bad it’s only for Sunday games hmp!

  • DJSlik

    best player on the floor. when they allow jeremy to be the best player, they win. when jeremy gets shots more often than not, his team wins. Jeremy is an alpha azz scorer. LINSANITY!

  • DJSlik

    LINSANITY

  • blubell

    He looks good in anything but my favorite is still the black jersey πŸ™‚

  • joyce ward
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Jeremy Lin clearly doesn't enjoy talk that he was more assertive tonight. Takes offense at suggestion he wasn't assertive in first five.—

  • orLinaryjoe

    Purple and gold are too loud as team colors. Liked their midnight black too even more.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yeah the black soccer jersey and white Sunday jersey, those are my faves. They look good on his skin.

  • Acbc

    That’s my prediction as well. Lin is always 24/7 basketball lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Black with hints of purple look nice on his skin.

  • CaliUSMC

    Are you a guy? Lol

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ok, that’s where I step out of the discussion, LOL.

    Lin with mojo! Mistake to try to bury Linsanity!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Black with hints of purple looks more regal than purple and gold combined.

    Yeah, purple and gold should be just accent colors to be used sparingly

  • blubell

    Linsanity all over again πŸ™‚

  • LAJane

    OK, some folks are saying “Charlotte. Big deal”….but really…why throw quite so much shade?! Is that what they mean by “old school” – that pleasure is poison and a kick in the butt is the only real motivator? smh

  • spiderman

    Scott still doesn’t seem to get it.

    Need to ride this momentum

  • LAJane

    Good for him. Show that displeasure!!
