G11 LAL @ ATL Game Thread

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’s pumped up, we’ll say “Let’s Go, Jeremy!”

  • CaliUSMC

    U fast bruh

  • BobbyH

    THANK YOU and ALL for all your support …..

    Now I can put the argument that NY server is slow to rest. πŸ˜‰

  • CaliUSMC

    I’ve been busy. But I just checked the stat sheet and Price has more assists than Jeremy? Wtf. Lin will go 20/5+. I feeeeeel it

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Most of Price minutes are when Kobe on the bench.

  • LOL

  • CJSHYY

    I hope Lin can have his O in 1st half bc he maybe will not play in 4Q again unless it’s close game.

  • Brent Yen

    So now we know it was Price spoke up.

  • CaliUSMC

    Link?

  • Brent Yen
  • CaliUSMC

    Thanks bud

  • CaliUSMC

    Not sure if that is good news or bad news….

    interesting article: http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/101782848/kobe-bryant-nba-shots-scoring-los-angeles-lakers

    most interesting part for me

    “…..It’s a fascinating conundrum: Kobe Bryant says he wants to win, so he believes he must constantly shoot. Kobe Bryant’s teammates say they want to win, so they want him to stop constantly shooting.
    So who’s right? That leads us to our third fact.

    3.The Lakers are better with Bryant on the bench.

    According to Sporting Charts, Kobe Bryant’s current plus-minus is -130. Of the 407 players they track in the NBA, that is … 407th. That’s dead last. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is better than that.

    The Lakers, coming into tonight’s game against Atlanta, have been outscored by a total of 105 points this year. You can probably see where this is going. When Kobe Bryant has been on the floor, the Lakers have been outscored by 130 points. When he has not been on the floor, they have outscored their opponents by 25 points. Now, plus-minus isn’t a perfect stat … but it’s difficult to deny those numbers.

    In Basketball Reference’s per 100 possession stats, Kobe Bryant has an offensive rating — an estimate of points produced per 100 possessions — of 99. This is ninth place on the Lakers. (He’s actually tied for ninth with Sacre.) Here are the Lakers players putting together more efficient per 100 possession numbers than Kobe right now: Ryan Kelly, Wayne Ellington, Ed Davis, Jordan Hill, Wesley Johnson, Jeremy Lin, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Clarkson. (He’s also 11th in defensive efficiency per 100 possessions, if you’re counting.)

    Isn’t that amazing? Isn’t that the most shocking thing? I mean, think about it: Kobe Bryant — a Hall of Famer, one of the top 20 players of all-time, a man with five championships — thinks the only way his team won’t be embarrassed is if he completely takes over … and according to the efficiency numbers, he probably shouldn’t be starting. Now, that’s an exaggeration: Kobe’s obviously the most talented player on his team. But lots of guys are the most talented guy on their team. (Thirty, in fact.) None of them shoot every time they get the ball. This makes Kobe’s protests that he doesn’t want to shoot so much, but simply he has to, so entertainingly wrong: It’s like Kobe is saying, “I don’t want to keep hitting myself in the face. But you’re making me do it. [SLAP]”

    Kobe Bryant is making his team so much worse. He’s killing his team by trying to save it. …”

  • My #1 question is who can guard Kyle Korver from draining 3s?

    So far Kyle Korver hit 16 out of 24 3s at home (66%!)

  • CJSHYY

    Please his D it’s not good either… smh!

  • cali7

    I suppose price has a better vantage point since he is watching it happen from the bench.

  • real-dsb

    Predicting Lin with 16 pts, 5 ast. Expecting Kobe to do a little less hogging today after their dinner (at least for one game).

    ATL and LAL have similar Off Rtg of 104, but Def Rtg is 10 pts diff. Predicting ATL win by 10, 115-105.

  • maybe he started the apology session :]

    But kudos to him for being man enough to speak up while his contract might not be extended soon

  • real-dsb

    kawhi leonard. oh, you mean a Laker?

  • Brent Yen

    They stand no chance doing so

  • so you doubt Price with his shoes? :]

  • Brent Yen

    He only has 2 shoes. LOL

  • that’s why he spoke up earlier to borrow more shoes LOL

  • Brent Yen

    No wonder!

  • Brent Yen

    Will be Linsanity!!

  • I’ll be happy with 16/5 :p

  • Good one!
    But that’s next year for Lin πŸ˜€

  • real-dsb

    Steve Nash. He can easily block the ball with his driver.

  • wow, Kobe is really the last one in the NBA at +/- at -130? *jaw-dropped*

  • CJSHYY

    W Young I am not so sure but want to look at bright side like you in that group dinner w Lin’s favor restaurant so maybe good thing will happen then…

  • real-dsb

    Oh darn, I forgot about the Nick Young factor. Revising Lin’s assists down to 3 based on Nick Young’s misses. =p

  • Brent Yen

    I always say +/- is trash, but being the last across the whole NBA is really something.

  • CJSHYY

    Young’s AS will not go to Lin it’s either Kobe or Price..

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Congrats. Didn’t even know there was a new thread after 20 min became a fact. LOL Very very very slow day from DU:-) Actually I was responding on the other thread.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s why I said Kobe is breaking all NBA records in both lefts and rights. Good on him that he didn’t care anyway. He is KOBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • BobbyH

    I just got home from my commute and first thing I did was turned on my Mac and went straight to this page. It felt so good. πŸ˜‰

  • CJSHYY

    He is fighting for his starting PG job. smh! Hope Lin can have good game today or he will be in trouble to keep his job after all….

  • bolero

    Jeremy Lin warming up! pic.twitter.com/XHyKko9pS1— Brian Reynolds (@bareynolds10) November 18, 2014

  • Michael

    They spear headed Ronnie? What an awful thing to do.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    My prediction: If Kobe has more than 30+ FGA, then JLin is 6pts/4asts. If Kobe has around 20 FGAs, then JLin is….. LOL Can’t remember the number. It’s either 16/18pts and 4-5 asts. I should add on Young possibility as well as if JLin is benched……

  • BobbyH

    It is a matter of time that Lin will start a coup, well if BS keeps Lin on the court. As KHuang mentioend before, Lin needs to take over the team.

    I think Lakers wants someone to stand up to Kobe. No one will do that, not FO, not the management, not even BS. They don’t want to be the bad guy. So it is up to Lin now.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Ya I know. Feel good to beat all the regular firsts:-)

  • Brent Yen

    So Lin has to be the bad guy too? LOL They really not paying him enough.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Saw this news the other day but couldn’t read the content but now this. WOW!
    https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/534854876170575872

  • Barry Allen

    only way I see that happening is if Kobe is out for a few games or the season.

  • Brent Yen

    His own kid?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Heard he was cleared?

  • CaliUSMC

    We’ve learned the Cobb County PD in Georgia now has an active criminal investigation into allegations he beat his 6-year-old son Braylon with a belt buckle.

    Read more: http://www.tmz.com/2014/11/18/dwight-howard-abuse-case-child-criminal-investigation/#ixzz3JT4F7Wpm

  • Brent Yen

    M…..terrible

  • Brent Yen

    What does not kill you makes u stronger…..well I believe more on what Kills you makes you very dead.

  • khomphuong2

    He is not that softy or p***y afterall

  • Brent Yen

    Well hitting a kid means he is worse afterall

  • Michael

    But if you can still walk, you will become a walking dead.

  • Barry Allen
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    “Howard admits he hit his kid with a belt, but says he didn’t know it was wrong because he was hit as a kid.” WOW Can’t believe he is such an ignorance of this.

  • Good news that Nash might rejoin the team to mentor guys soon.
    Finally! I have high hope Nash can whisper what to do on court to Lin during games.

    https://twitter.com/MarkG_Medina/status/534856809375600640

  • Brent Yen

    I doubt a walking dead can walk after been spearheaded…

  • khomphuong2

    Was being sarcastic. Maybe Kobe & K Durant knew about this.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s my high hope. Help JLin how to “play” with Kobe ball.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Broken team rebuilding, check. Not so good team to play against, check, Kobe playing and shooting like no tomorrow to catch MJ, check. Stellar team D against yourself, check. Stellar all man for your self O, check. Reality, check. OK, Lin to rise to the ultimate challenge of his life, check.

  • Michael

    The Kobe problem may be unsolvable, but Lin could still benefit a ton from Nash.

  • bolero
  • this could be potentially be a similar case to Adrian Peterson (NFL star) who got suspended for the season for kid disciplining gone wrong

  • wu kong

    yeah usually I take it with a huge grain of salt but this this is something with meaning.

  • Barry Allen

    Nash: “So guys this is how I swing a golf club……also remember to keep your back straight when carrying heavy bags.”

  • JW

    Rule #1. don’t carry ur own luggage.

  • JW
  • khomphuong2

    Pretty sad .

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. At least help him to “deal” with how to survive Kobe ball quicker and move fast forward even more in his development.

  • Barry Allen

    He can’t handle the truth.

  • GoodDayLA

    not to be a downer, but Nash was basically doing the same thing Lin is doing right now but even less than Lin did when Nash played next to Kobe.

    Nash has no advice to offer Lin.

  • roberlin

    My predictions for JLin – I think he either scores 13 points or 19 points. I’m reaching here, but I’ll be optimistic tonight and say Lin scores 19 points tonight

    Optimistic prediction:
    19 points
    6-13 FG shooting
    2 for 5 Three point shooting
    5-5 at the free throw line
    5 assists

    Conservative prediction:
    13 points
    4-9 FG shooting
    1 for 3 on threes
    4-5 at the free throw line
    4 assists

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. I even know this when I studied in US 30 years ago. He wasn’t even born when I first arrived in US. Lost my words on his ignorance…..

  • This is also hilarious on Joakim Noah heckling Griffin :]

    https://twitter.com/KevinDing/status/534860944674160640

  • Michael

    You had me at predictions.

  • GoodDayLA

    Royce is a known hot mess. D12 makes poor life decisions when it comes to choosing women to impregnate.

  • Barry Allen

    actually beating up kids makes him a really soft p**y in my book, because they are helpless and can’t fight back

  • wu kong

    it was not just a belt but the belt buckle end of the belt.

  • roberlin

    Well, Nash may offer some advice to Lin, but I don’t know how much of an impact it will have on JLin’s game. Probably not much.

  • Nash still knows how to get his points/asts when playing with Kobe.

    So I’m hopeful Nash can teach Lin how to get a good contract next year even if the Lakers go 10-72

  • Barry Allen

    16.2 points

    book it

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know and the way he defended himself. WOW! Unbelievable. Not only made light of what he has done and then played an ignorant card were just too much.

  • GoodDayLA

    that was my point, he didn’t get points and assist playing next to Kobe. I watched every game. He produced less than what Lin is averaging!

  • real-dsb

    “I think he either scores 13 points or 19 points.”

    hmm, that’s rather odd

  • Barry Allen

    nash’s bags beg to differ.

  • real-dsb

    I saw the video clip of that, Jack was just looking up at the screen. Probably just got a screen capture when he was blinking.

  • roberlin

    Ha! Even I get it.

  • GoodDayLA

    Nash has nothing to show Lin verbally. Lin said himself he learns most from observing Nash play live.

  • wu kong

    here in the south spare the rod spoil the child is a normal child rearing behavior. mostly accepted but there are ways to ‘hit’ a child that are ‘preferred’ switch across legs _ok, slap to face not ok, belt on back or bottom generally accepted if only one or two smack and not full force by grown man, use of belt buckle out of the question.

    BTW I only smacked my daughter once on bottom but grew up with parents and teachers hitting us all the time πŸ™

    had one teacher with a planed down baseball bat with holes in it… he would hit your rear like he was hitting a home run and leave round welts on you… s*****.

  • I see Nash still averaged 12.7p/6.7a in the 1st year.
    Not much but still better than Lin’s 11.7p/4.4a now

    If anything, being a sounding board will help Lin to vent and not get frustrated.

  • real-dsb

    Nash: “It’s all about the follow through.”
    Lin: “OK”
    Nash: “Visualize the ball going into the hole.”
    Lin: “You mean the basket?”
    Nash: “No, the picnic basket stays in the cart. Try to focus on the game here.”

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks for the explanation but still mind-boggling though.

  • yeah, that can apply to both golf and bags :]
    Maintain a good spine angle LOL

  • JW
  • roberlin

    Atlanta has one of the worst home crowds in the NBA. Worse even than Houston’s.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW Have TWC feed this time.

  • Alaingrvis

    swaggy backs thank god

  • wu kong

    hitting kid with belt buckle is an enraged adult not thinking… that is called child abuse.

  • Nice !
    Nash will also be good to mentor Lin for his future Senior PGA Tour LOL

  • real-dsb

    “How to get paid playing golf 101”

    Nash will get paid $9.7M this year playing golf. That’s more than Tiger Woods earned playing golf the past 2 seasons combined ($8.7M)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Had some of it when I was young. That was in late 60s and to mid 70s. Somehow my dad stopped. Not sure what happened but the damage was done. We were scarred by the experiences. We still talked about it periodically how it affected us….

  • golfhacker

    What’s the point of practicing 15 footers when he never takes them in a game?

  • CaliUSMC

    GAME TIME. GG GL HF

  • TTNN

    not fair though, lost of garbage time that Kobe not playing.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So far.. NO CHANGES IN THE STARTING LINEUP

  • Nice info!
    And that’s only because Tiger didn’t try to carry his wife’s bag like Nash did to his fiancee :]

  • CJSHYY

    For today.

  • Acbc

    Giving lessons on how to throw shoes and round house to head.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lexus Keys to the Game – Where’s JEREMY?

    For the love of egg sandwich, HE’S ON THE FLOOR.The question is WHERE IS THE BALL?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You gotta relax. He won’t be benched.

  • Alaingrvis

    still valid q

  • CJSHYY

    I know…

  • LAJane

    The south for sure, but I was raised in Cali by parents from the rural midwest and pretty much the same discipline traditions prevailed. What we kind of took for granted as kids is now more or less reportable to child services. Not saying it’s OK….just that the story might not be as it’s portrayed by the highly reputable news source TMZ.

  • Guest

    Let me guess, GG=good game. GL=good love. HF=high five! πŸ˜€

  • Barry Allen

    HOW CAN YOU MISS THAT POINT BLANK LAYUP?!?!?!?! SERIOUSLY! I CAN MAKE THAT!

    that was a great pass by Lin πŸ™

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugh.. Johnson is the second option in offense AGAIN

  • Barry Allen

    nice move by Milsap

  • Bearness

    Lakers don’t look super outclassed for a change.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wow.. Millsap is burying Boozer alive

  • Barry Allen

    finally Boozer hits from Lin

  • real-dsb

    good news, the Lakers haven’t been blown out yet.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Finally a pass from Kobe and 2 from J

  • roberlin

    Atlanta is beatable, definitely.

  • Barry Allen

    nice steal and assist by Kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    what I’m seeing better scheme. better space.

  • Michael

    Hahahaha.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    3 3 3

  • CaliUSMC

    Telling you. Lin going for 20 tonight!!

  • roberlin

    Pull up 3 for Jeremy. Very nice.

    2-2, 5 points.

  • Bearness

    yaaaaaaaa!

  • roberlin

    Nah, Lin will go for 19 points, since that’s what I predicted, lol

  • bolero

    good for Lin so far..

  • Barry Allen

    Good defense by Lin

  • roberlin

    Feast on the east.

    Eastern conference teams are very beatable.

  • bolero

    33 pts and 3 assists?

  • Michael

    The defensive effort was there for 3-4 minutes. Boozer, Wes starting to take it easy again. That was fast.

  • Alaingrvis

    in adjustment hill not shooting mid j. he is looking to pass. also boozer and wes setting up low in the paint if lin drives. what i wanted if not change the lineup alter the scheme. scotts did that

  • Bearness

    BS, please don’t take out Jeremy at 6~7 min mark and play Kobe entire Q1.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    hahaha. I will go to 38+ then.

  • Alaingrvis

    young

  • Barry Allen

    2 missed free throws, missed an easy layup right at the rim. sigh wes.

  • roberlin

    No wonder Jordan Hill just shoots jumpers. His post up move sucks.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s trying to be LMA

  • Bearness

    OMG he just lost it by himself trying to post up.

  • roberlin

    Lin with the practice 3!

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin made that 3 even though it dint count. Form looks good. Needs to keep shooting 3’s

  • Bearness

    Interesting line up.

  • Michael

    Lin’s shot is on tonight..

  • CaliUSMC

    LIN GOING FOR 20!!

  • roberlin

    YES! Jeremy!

  • spiderman

    lol

  • kassiek

    and1

  • MoominFloren

    Going for 40!

  • roberlin

    Lin’s line so far

    3-3, 8 points

  • Barry Allen

    Woo, 3 point play by Lin! Nice!

  • Michael

    He took out Milsap too.

  • Skwo

    Impressive 1 on 4 take and terrible defense by Atlanta

  • Alaingrvis

    i like the way they are playing

  • roberlin

    And Jeremy goes to the bench. It’s okay, it’s his normal time to come out.

  • CaliUSMC

    Jhil atakckin the board. Nice to see.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Go JLin. You can do it to 38+

  • Barry Allen

    Yeah, that is huge.

  • Bearness

    LOL, my stream is like 10 seconds slow. So reading the comments is like looking into the future.

  • Alaingrvis

    actually a little later since young is back

  • Barry Allen

    Why are you taking Lin out now? Seriously?

  • Michael

    Lin OUT???!!!! Scott you…grrrr…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. Can’t believe it.

  • Bearness

    BS actually kept him in longer than usual.

  • Barry Allen

    Lin is 3-3, getting hot, playing in rhythm and is taken out?

  • Alaingrvis

    lolreally 48 minutes then

  • IsabeliJane*17

    To force the Price-Davis plays

  • roberlin

    normal rotation. Chillax, dude. lol.

  • Riddick

    Does Scott not know any other rotation than what he’s been doing? goodGreif

  • Alaingrvis

    because young is back he can be the sixth man

  • CaliUSMC

    The refs are on the lakers side haha

  • BuzzerBeater

    Jeremy has taken 3 shots! Thats already more than he took the entire 1st half last game.
    Progress! XD

  • Bearness

    Just once, I want to see him take out Kobe first and let Lin play entire first quarter.

  • roberlin

    I’ll take 28, but 38 is good for me too.

  • Michael

    Lin is hot now, the coach has to know his person ell..

  • GoodDayLA

    its Kobe’s team, not Lin’s. Scott is not coaching just to win alone. He’s coaching to win but making sure Kobe looks good enough doing so. Problem is it’s proven to be too hard to do that.

  • Alaingrvis

    the whole game you mean he was 0-2

  • Barry Allen

    Great job so far by Lin!

  • GoodDayLA

    I have a feeling the Lakers will go on a winning streak towards Xmas. They cannot put a 1-20 team on TV on xmas day. The NBA is somewhat rigged.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Try to force my wish on JLin if he has the same wavelength as me:-)

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Enough of forcing the Price-Davis plays. I want to see the J-Ed PnR!

  • BuzzerBeater

    lol omg you’re right, I just checked. I dont know why I thought he took 4.

  • Riddick

    He got toooooo warm. Gotta cool him off, so….

  • Alaingrvis

    relax davis played with lin and young. they just didn’t use him

  • GoodDayLA

    this is Kobe’s team. Scott doesn’t want to lose control.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    BS won’t change. He wants to prove his pt for Price as priceless defense.

  • Bearness

    Nick Young looking rusty but not shy about shooting. LOL.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • roberlin

    Nick Young looks like Kobe-lite. Which is not necessarily a good thing.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol yea he is a shooter

  • CaliUSMC

    Teague has been a ghost so far

  • roberlin

    Kobe playing teamball, sort of. I’ll take it.

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    SHUT DOWN by Lin. Really.

  • CaliUSMC

    That was fast

  • blubell

    Shhh… I’m at work…

  • Riddick

    It’ll change soon…Price is in. lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • roberlin

    I’m glad Price missed that shot, lol.

  • sport

    *quietly* thank you……

  • Michael

    What’s your bosses number?

  • Alaingrvis

    why

  • blubell

    Sorry but he’s married

  • roberlin

    nice shot by Kobe.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CaliUSMC

    Refs are cheating the Hawks. Lmao.

  • roberlin

    lol.

    Is it me or does Robin Lundberg look like Jay Leno in that picture?

  • Bearness

    Haha, I ALWAYS thought that.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Robin Lundberg rivals my admiration for Jeremy.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CaliUSMC

    ZZZING

  • sport

    I feel sorry for the Hawks they are trying to rig this for the Lakers. I guess it’s only fair since Lakers got cheated so many times this season already!

  • Barry Allen

    Price 3P% now at 14%

  • BuzzerBeater

    He puts my LOFing to shame.
    Love the dude.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • roberlin

    the price is WRONG.

  • Michael

    He’s a 26.2% shooter. Slightly below average I must say.

  • roberlin

    That was such a nice fast break – totally under control. Almost euro-stepping to the basket.

  • Barry Allen

    Yeah.

    25.6% after that last shot.

  • I am The Jason

    The Lakers are playing like a team. The basketball gods must have heard my prayers.

  • roberlin

    Kobe passes!

    Nice shot by Nick Young. What a play.

  • CaliUSMC

    Clutch 3 by Young.

  • Barry Allen

    You could see all the Hawks trying so hard to keep up with lightning Lin.

  • roberlin

    Price is actually older than his shooting percentage! Lol. How sad.

  • sport

    Kobe passes to Nick Young for the last shot of the quarter?! is this NBA 2k15?!

  • real-dsb

    after 1Q, Lin with 8 pts, 3-3 fg, 1-1 3pt, 1-1 ft, 1 reb, 1 ast, 0 to, +6, 8 mins.

    Lakers up by 11, but don’t worry, they can give that up in a blink of an eye.

  • roberlin

    They looked like they were in slo-mo, lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    he can do that

  • BobbyH

    Not to mention the other 4 old lakers.

  • sport

    If Kobe does his iso crap yes! Actually he did for a while with the 2nd unit cause Lin was out with 2 more points than him!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If the Lakers lose this I’m going to blame the bigs. Hawks doesn’t rebound and, except Millsap, don’t have any interior presence.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Agree 100000000000000%

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    wes and hills shots lower which is good

  • CaliUSMC

    I wouldn’t be surprised honestly…

  • sport

    Why doesn’t Lin get to start 2nd quarter especially when he’s got the hot hand?

  • Michael

    Price with the good D….

  • roberlin

    He’s not going to play the entire second. And he shouldn’t.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Imminent Lakers collapse?

  • sport

    What was the starting lineup this game, did BS make changes?

  • 717

    He was too hot.

  • 717

    nope

  • sport

    Kobe got to finish 1st quarter so Lin should at least be able to start 2nd with the 2nd unit. BS sits him too long compared all other starters in fact Lin has the least number of minutes out of starters.

  • roberlin

    Second unit blowing the lead.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No change. Same lineup.

  • John Lee

    I think this is what BS and Worthy consider as tough defense.

  • roberlin

    Time for Jeremy to come back in.

  • Michael

    Boozer pretending to play defense.

  • GoodDayLA

    this is Kobe’s team. Lin is just support staff.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy remove that shirt…

    I mean the warm up shirt. Time for you to come back in.

  • roberlin

    It’s not a competition between Kobe and Lin.

  • GoodDayLA

    its 1 game

  • John Lee

    Price-Davis just doesn’t work. Face it BS, your boy’s no good.

  • Alaingrvis

    good correction was about to say wrong website lol

  • Barry Allen

    that’s what she said

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Price is priceless to BS.

  • CaliUSMC

    YOung is feelin it

  • Barry Allen

    I think he’s made some nice passes, but his offense is non-existent.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Sick of witnessing BS’ infatuation of Price.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Finally Jeremy is removing that shirt!

  • John Lee

    Less Price, more Lin-Davis alley oops please.

  • CaliUSMC

    LIN TIIMEE

  • BuzzerBeater

    heh, whats it been 8 whole minutes of Jeremy sitting?

  • Barry Allen

    Hill you are 6 foot 10, go strong to the basket and dunk the damn ball.

  • John Lee

    I’m gonna go ahead and order what you’re having.

  • GoodDayLA

    not lins team, kobe show

  • John Lee

    Price love.

  • sport

    Interesting, I asked cause I see alot of starters playing with 2nd unit right now especially the lazy bigs, Hill and Boozer along with Wes Johnson but Johnson has always got to play more minutes with the 2nd unit.

  • CaliUSMC

    nice stl lin!!!

  • CaliUSMC

    NICE PASSS LIN!!!!

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • CaliUSMC

    AM I THE ONLY ONE POSTING? lol

  • roberlin

    It’s the Jeremy Lin show! Wow.

  • Michael

    Boozer crashing the boards hard after the Hill long 2 guaranteed miss.

  • GoodDayLA

    if Kobe plays team ball for 10 games in a row, we can start to built real hope. One game here and there out of 10 games of Kobe playing team ball is nothing to get excited about.

    So for now, we just have to hope Lin can push the pace and get some stats and chuck the ball at the rim enough for our liking.

  • Skwo

    Can you guys find a stream with Lakers commentators? These Atlanta commentators are hurting my ears with their ignorant comments.

  • roberlin

    This is the Jeremy Lin we know! Woo hoo!

  • Barry Allen

    Great quick steal and assist to Kobe.

    Linstant Impact!

  • BobbyH

    Busy watching

  • I am The Jason

    Lin is shredding the Hawks defense. This is what I want to see.

  • GoodDayLA

    no it’s the kobe show, manufactured πŸ™‚

  • roberlin

    Lincredible, really.

  • CaliUSMC

    That pass to Boozer was slick.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW Wonderful plays of JLin. Continue!

  • John Lee

    Davis must not be enjoying playing with Price, his productivity is way down. He knows who gives him strong PNR mojo!

  • golfhacker

    What are they saying?

  • Bearness

    That was a Linsanity pass.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Seriously for the game vs Rockets, I want Stu Lance to be the commentator. I’m hoping too much.

  • roberlin

    I’m sure some idiots are saying Lin should have shot instead of passing to Kobe and Boozer, lol.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Finally we see it!

  • sport

    Who are the two Lin haters announcing for the Hawks game? When Lin came back in he got a foul and they said the player against Lin should get going cause of “weak defense”. Then right after Lin got a steal on him and. LOL I was like in you face haters! And they’re still spilling that stupid speech about how Lin can guard that Hawks player! Yea right that’s totally why Lin got a steal and 2 assists on him!

  • Barry Allen

    Lin is feeling it.

    This is beautiful!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Rockets can be easily shelved IF J-Ed will PnR all day

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Watch out the language.

  • Carol Tiu
  • 717

    You visit the old site too much.

  • roberlin

    I’m guessing it’s Dominque Wilkins. Thank god I’m watching the LA feed.

  • Bearness

    Lin seems very calm and focused today. I’m not sure if I’ve seen him like this before

  • sport

    I’m switch channels now!

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin is Asian. All commentators are just stereotyping what they believe Asians are all about. Lin is an outlier they refuse to accept.

  • John Lee

    How the greats have fallen. First Clyde and now ‘Nique.

  • I am The Jason

    They are saying that Teague is faster than Lin, but Lin is embarrassing him right now. The also are talking more about Kobe and Nick Young like they are the saviors for the Lakers. Its hard on the ears.

  • GoodDayLA

    he has nothing to lose. and 1 good game doesn’t change a thing for Lin either. Just like 1 good game of Kobe team ball is meaningless too.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m getting too irritated about Hill and Boozer shying on physical contact on the inside.

  • Riddick

    Ya, I heard them say Lin can’t guard Teague…

  • Michael

    Well Wilkins is an Hawks HOF like the Clyde Drexler of Hawks.

  • CaliUSMC

    Link please.

  • Alaingrvis

    davis

  • BuzzerBeater

    Yes he does! I can see the tweets I sent him the other day really helped him πŸ˜€ /wishful delusion

  • wow, Boozer dove on the floor.
    Now that’s defense!

  • Skwo

    Same old Jeremy Lin cannot play defense myth and giving no props/credit to Jeremy. Thanks Carol!

  • roberlin

    watching on TWC t.v. They’re showing both home and away feeds.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin-Davis CONNECSHUN

  • roberlin

    Holy crap what a pass by LIN!!

  • Lin-Davis!!!

  • golfhacker

    Thx both!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ed Davis – there goes your next contract!

  • John Lee

    Davis: the Price wasn’t right!

  • LAJane

    πŸ™‚

  • Bearness

    Nice!

  • Alaingrvis

    ok when did lin get 6 assist

  • Barry Allen

    Great pass by Lin, finally Lin-Davis! Yes!

  • John Lee

    Comes…IJ, not goes. πŸ™‚

  • roberlin

    The entire game. He’s been on fire as a playmaker.

  • wow contested 3s by all Lakers..
    This is really great to watch!

  • GoodDayLA

    why cannot Davis play more? WHY WHY WHY. Why does Scott hate Davis more than Lin?

  • Alaingrvis

    yea i agree

  • BuzzerBeater

    Kobes team, not Davis’

  • Bearness

    He should have like 10 if they didn’t miss so much.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Brain fart. I’m distracted by who I’m watching.

  • sport

    Good thing Lin’s doing well and Lakers are route for a blow out win!

  • real-dsb

    anyone think that perhaps the offense should flow through Lin?

  • John Lee

    In BS face!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has been great pg with everyone. thats his first with davis

  • CaliUSMC

    beautiful MIRANGE J LIN!

  • GoodDayLA

    yes you are totally right πŸ™‚

  • Nice screen by Kobe to get Lin 4th FG!

  • sport

    Yes Lin on his way for a double double tonight! 9 points, 2 rebs, 6 assists!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Any arguments why it shouldn’t deserves a hand in the face.

  • sport

    Woot woot now make that 12 points! Back to back shots, this is the assertive Lin I’ve been waiting for! Those past 3 games were a nightmare!

  • CaliUSMC

    LINSANITY. LOL

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin Banks!

  • joyce ward

    isn’t it 10 points for lin?

  • GoodDayLA

    1 game does not make a season. Be excited but temper the excitement. We need many more games before we can really get excited and let our guard down.

  • sport

    If Lin can get 8 more rebounds and 4 more assists he’d be on his way for a triple double! Of course with 20 pts would be even sweeter!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You gotta relax you know. We’re enjoying it. We don’t see any reason why not to.

  • roberlin

    WOW. What a half. I’m exhausted, lol.

  • BuzzerBeater

    He also just need 10 more blocks for a quadruple double, Lets go JLIN

  • GoodDayLA

    and I want you too! Just lets not get all crazy thinking Lin has turned the corner on this Kobe team. Let’s see how the next 5 games go, just don’t want this place to get overly high just to feel a low tomorrow.

    I, like you, want Lin to shine and kill it!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol that hair was great

  • MoominFloren

    How about 100% FG? we are asking too much…haha

  • CaliUSMC

    Everyone is playing really well. Except J.hill lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    We’re enjoying the moment. No need for you to tell us to temper it down at the present.

  • Maknusia

    lol…good defense!

  • Wow, wow, wow!!
    This is a completely different team πŸ˜€
    Kobe 19pts, Lin 12pts. Boozer 18pts

    15pts lead (67-52) after the 1st half.

    LET’S GO, JEREMY!!!

  • Brent Yen

    what?! I am late and Lakers got a big lead! what’s going on here

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i mean hair

  • Michael

    Get your BBQ rack out!

  • Maknusia

    you better go back doing what you were doing earlier

  • LW

    Luck is on Lakers side today and the Lin/Kobe PnR seems to be doing good things.

  • sport

    Good things happen when Kobe doesn’t go ball hog mode, if only he can play like that for the entire season! ><"

  • roberlin

    You missed everything, dude! Awesome half by Lin and the Lakers.

  • Alaingrvis

    wth the auto correct putting hair

  • golfhacker

    And Wes Johnson.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    lol u miss it the best game Lakers plays thus far. JLin ball in general.

  • Brent Yen

    Let me quickly watch replay

  • orLinaryjoe

    The Atlanta announcers trashing Lin’s defense. Saying, yes go at Lin.

  • BobbyH

    Still game is not over yet. Lakers is hot, so is Hawks, shooting 51.3%

  • roberlin

    Give credit to Kobe – he’s having a great game – playing teamball and getting his shots in the flow of the game. Nice.

  • sport

    Thank the refs for giving them 9 points in FTs 1st quarter cheating the Hawks although they did give some fouls back to them in 2nd quarter at Lin and Hill’s expense! <.<

  • Great defense, contesting 3s.
    All teamwork on offense!

    LINSANITY! hahaha

  • GoodDayLA

    sure, please enjoy.

  • Maknusia

    JHill is rebounding, thats good for me

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s right. When Kobe plays JLin ball, it’s so beautiful to watch.

  • GoodDayLA

    I will not give Kobe any more credit. He needs to play teamball to save his own hide. He deserves no credit.

  • John Lee

    Jeremy slapping Dominique hard! LOL

  • BuzzerBeater

    he’s so efficient right now too and still on pace for his 40 points he desperately wants.

    Its all about how you get them! Hope he keeps it up.

  • as long as their defense holds and offense is flowing, this is going to be good πŸ˜€

  • CaliUSMC

    4 of Lins assists were really nice. Highlight nice.

  • sport

    But Lakers are playing teamball and Lin has been on fire. When Lin gets going good things happen!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    And you need to shut it while we’re enjoying here.

  • Alaingrvis

    what i like the people who can score are shooting hill and wes are not shooting which is great. young adds another option for us. which gives us four options. with davis as 5th. all pretty good options

  • Maknusia

    Second Q need to keep the defensive mindset up

  • GoodDayLA

    give it 10 games before you give Kobe credit. Heck give it 3 games.

  • sport

    Is it too much to ask for Lakers to play like this every single game?! Teamball no Kobe iso to oblivion?

  • Michael

    Is it safe to say that Dom is not a fan of Lin?

  • CaliUSMC

    True!

  • Carol Tiu

    yw.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Thank God for Stu Lance. He’s on my feed.

  • Bearness

    The game would be closer except Hawks missed ton of 3’s.

  • LAJane

    have watched on nbaliveonline before, but now it’s telling me it need a video plug-in and I have to download Mplayer X. I’m very ignorant about all of this, and cautious. Is it OK to do this download? Safe?

  • sport

    Those two are haters for sure kept dissing Lin! I had to switch to another stream with lower quality! Can’t stand them!

  • Alaingrvis

    he don’t play or them so. lol a lot of lakers fans though.

  • GoodDayLA

    my only concern with Lin is that when he plays well, he almost is perfect from the field FG% wise. What happens when he is ice cold, can he still will the team and be aggressive if he starts 1-5? Or will he fade away.

  • roberlin

    Wilkins is a Lin basher. Just turn down the sound.

  • Bearness

    Don’t. Very likely all trojan installers.

  • Brent Yen

    WTH….Teague just let Lin shoot the practice 3? Teams has no respect on Lin’s long range at all

  • roberlin

    debbie downer. lol.

  • LAJane

    ’cause apparently it was GOOD JUJU.

  • LAJane

    thanks.

  • Brent Yen

    He will hit a fadeaway..

  • JC

    Looks like I’m right about Kobe toning it down this game

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Seriously dude. You need to shut it. Enjoy the moment.We’re all happy here. You’re kinda jinxing it.

  • real-dsb

    Halftime: Lin with 12 pts, 5-5 fg, 1-1 3pt, 1-1 ft, 2 reb, 6 ast, 1 stl, 1 to, 2 pf, +13, 15 min.

    Lakers up by 15. Still wouldn’t be surprised if the Lakers found a way to lose this game.

  • Alaingrvis

    well its let him take a three or drive by you

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • I am The Jason

    The only thing wrong with this game is Jordan Hills presents and listening to the Hawks announcers . Man are they salty Lin is going in on Teague. Show the man some respect.

  • webattorney

    Great game from Lin and others so far. If Lin can maintain this attitude, he can get at least 8 points by half time every game, even if he doesn’t make most of his shots. BTW, Teague is pretty good.

  • joyce ward

    Let’s enjoy the game, without all the concerns…✌

  • I am The Jason

    Stop being a buzzkill

  • GoodDayLA

    I want Lin to have long term success, not 1 game success. I fell victim to the Clipper 1 game success and thought it was going to change. I’ve been watching Kobe too long. I have measured excitement at this point.

    Lin will have to simply be as good as we think he is and break through all the obstacles.

    When he can still impact the game shooting 20% and be instrumental, then I know he’s going to be a Laker for years to come.

  • Brent Yen

    I can not find my BBQ thing….

  • GoodDayLA

    ok

  • CaliUSMC

    It’s just Dominique.

  • GoodDayLA

    will do

  • John Lee

    Dominique completely unprofessional.

  • real-dsb

    No, never download video installers or any browser plugins! Find a different link that doesn’t require those.

  • LAJane

    don’t worry. I have stepped away from the keyboard….even though it’s agony not being able to finally see some LIIIINNNNNsanity!

  • GoodDayLA

    thanks for not banning me yet. But if you ever do, I won’t hold it against you πŸ™‚

  • GoodDayLA

    haha

  • BobbyH

    a mid range, a 3, a bank shot, and 2 fast breaks (and 1) from Lin.

  • spiderman

    I think they’re in SHOCK by the score

  • John Lee

    I get it, but save it for the post-game.

  • Alaingrvis

    if he just rebounds I’m ok with it

  • Brent Yen

    I am surprised that Scott let them play at this pace…early offense made shots easier

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Those are cancer for your computer. Good for you to step away.

  • GoodDayLA

    as I was told, dont be a debbie downer here lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    No reason yet. You just need some ice cold Coke or something like that.

  • Dorothy

    Just checked the other site. We have more comments than it πŸ™‚

  • spiderman

    And he looks better for it

  • GoodDayLA

    I love Dom the player, but I hate the Lin hater in Dom. Losing my respect like Drexler. These 50 year old guys grew up around nerdy and physically weak Asians and can’t view Lin as anything else.

  • joyce ward

    I knew you could do it…☺❀

  • Brent Yen

    Why? they are not happy that Lin is having a good game?

  • GoodDayLA

    Scott is about to get fired if this kept up much longer

  • BuzzerBeater

    Jeremy’s having a great game, trolls got nothing to work with πŸ™

  • John Lee

    Over half of us have emigrated to here.

  • Dorothy

    Don’t know. Did not bother to read the postings there.

  • spiderman

    yeah not a safe site. Froze my computer

  • roberlin

    they don’t have enough to complain about. Seriously! Lol.

  • Brent Yen
  • webattorney

    Dominique — there are some dummies in every race. As a commentator, you have to maintain certain distance and respect for players.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This is how basketball should be. My hat off to Kobe, what a changing man……so far.

  • GoodDayLA

    this site is infinitely better because it is policed and the mods can ban folks.

  • golfhacker

    Is he on Twitter? Call him out

  • CaliUSMC

    Don’t speak too soon.

  • LAJane

    πŸ™‚

  • Brent Yen

    WEll he got one TOV. I believe @disqus_HmSLGZ4iV2:disqus can think of something

  • John Lee

    Yes, hence the mass exodus from the old turf.

  • GoodDayLA

    im trying haha

  • roberlin

    If good kobe can last just this one game, that’s be quite an accomplishment, lol.

  • I am The Jason

    Right now the trolls are have a Dominique Wilkins meltdown. They can’t believe what they are witnessing.

  • webattorney

    Maybe Lin prayed together with Kobe.

  • Riddick

    One game at a time, I guess.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    True but must give credit to where it’s due.

  • roberlin

    5-5, 12 points, 6 assists. What a line!

  • 311

    Let’s wait til the game’s done at least. πŸ™‚

  • webattorney

    Even if he was 2 for 5, I would be ok with it.

  • Riddick

    Most likely he prayed behind Bryant’s back. lol

  • Carol Tiu

    lol

  • LAJane

    LOL. They can’t have the pleasure of their knickers in a twist?

  • roberlin

    yep. or one quarter at a time!

  • I am The Jason

    He is scared to be in the paint. Lin needs Davis to start asap.

  • webattorney

    Maybe Lin called up Kobe’s wife and told her to tell Kobe to take it easy.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes but this is the first first half I’ve enjoyed. lol

  • Riddick

    Could be…we’ll see soon. lol

  • Michael

    Does Kobe look happy, or fired up on the court yet? If they win easily, isn’t that like a huge slap in the face for his previous comments and playing style? He looks more like a subdued version of the previous games.

  • 311

    lol, true!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dear Jeremy, I take back that 40% last game. That 40% is not even about you scoring. It’s about you easying on defending Curry last game 2nd half vs Warriors.

  • Yascar

    I peeked in that site last night and couldn’t stand it. This site is much better for my sanity.

  • CaliUSMC

    I think Lin taught him some differential equations last night.

  • Brent Yen

    M….seems like Lin is doing mid range well. Laker did great to make sure their worst shots is a mid range fade away

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe is a wise man he should see it, 6-9 19 points? The game has come to him without forcing it.

  • LAJane

    geez you guys get me laughing….:-D

    EDIT: Pray with him, behind his back, on both sides…whatever works!

  • CaliUSMC

    Hawks coach not happy about Kobe and Lin’s fg%. “they are too comfortable”

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I qtr at a time, 1 half at a time. Hopefully he stays 1 game at a time:-)

  • Riddick

    Try this direct link Jane. The ads will be removed after the time winds down. It’s also w/LA announcers.
    http://nbaliveonline.tv/atlanta-hawks-live-streaming/

  • Maknusia

    Exactly….need to keep the defensive mindset up

  • Maknusia

    now you are BScott follower?

  • CaliUSMC

    Liin w/ 2 steals!

  • Maknusia

    D D D…good defensive by Lin

  • CaliUSMC

    Dting Lin. Lin with turnover.

  • Brent Yen

    I need to stop watching I guess. They are pressuring Lin now

  • Maknusia

    spoke too soon

  • roberlin

    shaky start to second half. Need that timeout.

  • CaliUSMC

    Go away. haha

  • Brent Yen

    It is a good time out

  • Maknusia

    darn another TO

  • sport

    Omg Lin what are you doing? Played well until now ><"

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeff Teague can’t do squat against Jeremy. Help defense very much needed.

  • GoodDayLA

    Yes I do need a coke. I’m one of those people who actually was not surprised at all New York let him go. When the season ended, I told a friend Lin was unlikely to be resigned because he is Asian and the marquee NBA franchise is not ready and America is not ready for a young Asian guy to be the face of the biggest media based NBA team. My friend called me cynical and that America was better than that and then 2 weeks later Lin went to Houston.

    Believe me, I want Lin to succeed just as much as you do. I’ll keep more of my thoughts to myself due to the good culture of this site, just wanted to let you understand where my cynicism comes from, not that you don’t get it already. It’s tough to carry these negative thoughts and see them proven true time and time again. Believe me I wasn’t born that way πŸ™‚

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I spoke soooo soon. lol

  • roberlin

    Hawks have made adjustments. double-teaming Lin. Lakers now must adjust back.

  • LAJane

    that the second steal from Jeremy by Millsap. I can’t see what’s happening, so ….any comment?

  • sport

    πŸ™ Me too…. Got too excited. Lakers reverting to their selfish ways.

  • I am The Jason

    Now the Hawks view Lin as a threat.

  • JT

    looking more physical against lin, maybe the scouting report against him is like that?

  • Dorothy

    yeah, I do that couple times a day (used to be on there a lot), but each time I read only the top several postings then gave up, too painful. I do appreciate the owner set up that site where I learned a lot and got comfort when Lin was not doing well.

  • Maknusia

    KObe is all good…he will take over when he sees the need…good or bad…thats how it is

  • sport

    Hawks making a run now crap!!!

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Don’t like this lineup. Davis needs to be in as both Hill and Johnson are non effective factor in this lineup.

  • Barry Allen

    Kobe’s ball gets stolen too, not even on the double team.

  • Maknusia

    man…whats going on πŸ™

  • BuzzerBeater

    Noooooooooo.
    ok finally some points to stop the bleeding

  • Barry Allen

    Hawks are heating up the defense.

  • Maknusia

    nice…finally WesJ

  • roberlin

    does lin have a double double yet?

  • spiderman

    wrong line-up. Wes should not be in there

  • Barry Allen

    Great pass by Lin.

    Showtime!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well, should I stop watching now????!!!! Too much to handle.

  • Maknusia

    good FB…as long as the bigs run with Lin…he could do the Fbreak

  • Maknusia

    almost

  • GoodDayLA

    Uh oh based on the boxscore, Jeff Teague is trying to embarrass Lin. I hope Lin is ready to fight back

  • CaliUSMC

    Teague is very fast..

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I now understand why Thunder’s perimeter defense regressed. They traded Thabo.

  • Riddick

    Not yet…there’s still time/hope for the players to adjust by themselves…noCoach.

  • Maknusia

    CB is boozing

  • Maknusia

    nah…they came in too confident

  • GoodDayLA

    good Lin hit a bucket for 14 right? Keep scoring Mr. Lin. Embarrass Teague since he is trying to embarrass you.

  • Maknusia

    need some 3s now

  • Barry Allen

    Lin 6-6! Perfect!

  • sport

    Davis back in thank goodness!!!

  • Maknusia

    bad tO

  • GoodDayLA

    by lin?

  • spiderman

    Replace Wesley & Hill ASAP

  • Maknusia

    yeah…he has good speed

  • Lin-Davis again!!! πŸ˜€

  • CaliUSMC

    double double TIME

  • roberlin

    Amazing pass by Lin! He’s on fire.

  • bolero

    JLin hot…

  • he’s good indeed

  • sport

    So glad Davis is in, JLin looking up at 1 more assists for double double tonight his first of the season!

  • Lin 14pts/9asts!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    J-Ed connection…. remarkable

    Seriously Dwight how did you miss that?

  • Barry Allen

    6-6, 14 points, 9 assists! Scorching!

  • MoominFloren

    1 more asts PLEASE !

  • LAJane

    Freaking double double!!!!

    EDIT: ooops, not seeing it in the play-by-play…thought for sure that last basket did it. I’m JUMPING THE GUN

  • bolero

    lol..

  • GoodDayLA

    Davis and Lin really can save one another.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin goes to double double please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I am The Jason

    I am enjoying this battle between Lin and Teague.

  • CaliUSMC

    Dominique gets quiet when Lin does his thing. Lol

  • Carol Tiu

    This game has me swooning!

  • sport

    Scored board said 9 still where’d you get the other assists from?

  • GoodDayLA

    Ed Davis is my favorite Laker not named Lin.

  • John Lee

    Lin slowly stitching ‘Nique’s lips…

  • Barry Allen

    I hope he gets one more for the double double. corrected, thanks.

  • GoodDayLA

    like Drexler. I hate these guys.

    Stu Lantz was doing the same in preseason but someone told him to stop it.

  • John Lee

    BS slowly waking up to Lin-Davis connection after 10 games. Finally sees Price is wrong.

  • CaliUSMC

    DOUBLE DOUBLE SON!

  • GoodDayLA

    either that or it was political. I cannot believe Scott was that stupid.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wow where is Korver? He’s invisible this game. Jeremy’s not even defending him

  • LAJane

    YEEEHAAAAA!!

  • sport

    Yes double double baby!!

  • GoodDayLA

    Am I wrong to hope Lin gets 10 more points and a win?

  • Barry Allen

    10 assists, double-double!

  • Maknusia

    now lets go for triple!

  • sport

    Lin got 3 rebounds can he got 7 more for a triple double XD

  • GoodDayLA

    Did teague score all 17 in 1 quarter?

  • Barry Allen

    Not sure, too busy watching Lin own it up!

  • John Lee

    Lin singlehandedly salvaging Hill’s stat line. Hill will be sold on Lin after this game.

  • GoodDayLA

    ok good

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Seriously he needs to stop on the midrange and get nasty in the interior.

  • GoodDayLA

    not sure on that one…

  • GoodDayLA

    or just play Ed Davis?

  • Maknusia

    need more D, keep it going

  • I am The Jason

    You can tell Lin wanted Hill to run to the basket for an easy layup but Hill stood his ground with his cement shoes. SMH

  • GoodDayLA

    Ed Davis +15

  • GoodDayLA

    the fix rots on the bench. His name is Ed.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Another big body on the interior would help

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CaliUSMC

    good to have swaggy back!

  • GoodDayLA

    they need a guy like Sacre who is athletic. but that is basically D12. Those are hard to come by.

  • Brent Yen

    Hill did something good something bad. I guess he is improving.

  • GoodDayLA

    dang Lin missed a free throw? I do give Lin a pass on misses FT since he is a physical guard and gets hit.

  • roberlin

    Lol. Was wondering what that pic was all about. Funny.

  • GoodDayLA

    its crazy Kobe always leads the team in minutes played by a lot.

  • sport

    Yes really good to have Swaggy back and good to see Kobe actually passing out when he’s doubled for Swaggy’s wide out 3s. If only Lin can get more of that!

  • Riddick

    Can I get one of those w/Lin’s?

  • I think he’s tired already & lost focus for a moment.
    Good time to rest

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t care about the burgers. Is their fries any good?

  • sport

    It’s definitely favoritism, Johnson is sucks! All 4 starters including 6th man Nick Young in double digits except him again!!! The team is getting going but he’s stick stuck in no mans land!!

  • Rick Johnson

    I just hope they don’t revert to Kobe isoball in the fourth

  • CaliUSMC

    He’s only missed 4 free throws this season. Its all good

  • GoodDayLA

    Kobe’s stat line looks like a normal human being’s tonight. It must be really hard for him to control himself like this so I will applaud him for his effort.

  • Rick Johnson

    Deleted duplicate

  • GoodDayLA

    u will find out!

  • 311

    Man it’s about time. And great extra pass by Price to Young.

  • sport

    Can Scott just bench Johnson to 2nd unit permanently and start Nick Young that dude is just atrocious!

  • golfhacker

    U mean hope Kobe doesn’t revert to Kobe isoball.

  • Brent Yen

    LAL did good building a wall at the FT line. But they are still poor guarding side pnRs

  • John Lee

    No crime to fight tonight, so no need to don the cape. πŸ™‚

  • I hope Nick Young can help maintain the 6-8pt lead until 7min left when starters come back

  • Barry Allen

    Lin’s the superhero tonight with his 10 assists.

  • CaliUSMC

    Don’t jinx it bro… Wait till game is over.. lol

  • sport

    Can Jlin get 5 points in 4th quarter when he’s back in to make this stat line perfect?! 20 points with 10 assists would be awesome!

  • sport

    I hate how Johnson the worst of the starters gets to play with the 2nd unit to pad his stats with the 2nd most minutes behind Kobe! WTF?

  • CaliUSMC

    Kyle Korver is scary. They’re gonna set screens for him.

  • Brent Yen

    His is killing the 2nd unit too…very indicisive

  • Too bad Nick Young is winded already. Not enough conditioning yet.
    Starters might have to come back early

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugh finally Korver heard me

  • joyce ward

    I don’t know, if they pull a win out tonight, kobe can try but he got outed worldwide for his tactics and I think he is a little embarrassed. I think Kobe will try to play within the confines of the game, but he will have his moments where the teammates will be giving him the side eye. I personally think Scott got a call from mitch and reminded him of the deal that he was suppose to police up kobe and i think scott appealed to him on help him keep his job…just my imagination…LOL

  • better not let him get hot

  • sport

    All starters got to play with 2nd unit except Lin! He’s always the one with the least minutes so bias! If Lin got Johnson’s minutes he’d have 20 points already!

  • 311

    Pretty impressive showing for his first game back though. No rust at all.

  • 717

    So nice to have the lead and waiting for the starters to return.

  • Alaingrvis

    sweating bullets

  • Riddick

    Is Scott going to let Lin play or is he done for the night?

  • sport

    I’d thought he’d be rusty since he injured his wrist but he looks good to go! Lakers really need his scoring and defense compared to Johnson who sucks!

  • Lin is 6/6 perfect from the line.

    I hope LA media doesn’t expect him to be perfect from now on πŸ™‚

  • roberlin

    Scott should bring back the starters around the 8 minute mark. Don’t keep them out too long.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy you’re so vain! Watching your greatness on jumbotron… LOL

  • Riddick

    I seriously question Scott’s ability to coach/adjust.

  • roberlin

    thank god korver missed that shot, lol

  • CaliUSMC

    Johnson is brick city

  • oh wow.. Korver missed that wide-open 3

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    TOOOOOOOOOOout

  • sport

    No they called him out about needing to be selfish and get his first!
    Jeremy Lin – Robert Horry James Worthy “Go For Yours!”

  • LW

    Wesley Johnson is really bad.

  • Riddick

    Pleeeeez sit Johnson now!

  • Nick Young is the ONLY bench scoring!

  • CaliUSMC

    GOOD D BY LAKERS

  • Phew 5pt lead with starters coming back 6 min left

  • sport

    Why are the starters not back in?!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy about to take off that shirt…

  • Maknusia

    NYoung the only offensive..as it seems πŸ™

  • Maknusia

    cool TO for hawks

  • joyce ward

    Remember the Lakers play Houston tomorrow, so he could be just resting lin

  • Maknusia

    lin is IN

  • Brent Yen

    Hill is allergic to roll…

  • CaliUSMC

    They are.. your feed is slow

  • roberlin

    I don’t know why Scott leaves Lin on the bench while the other starters are at the scorer’s table.

  • Brent Yen

    Could be, they need to grab this W 1st.

  • sport

    Lakers need Lin to be clutch and assertive right away! 5 point lead only! Please make a clutch 3 and 2 to seal the game

  • Bearness

    Does Hill ever take it strong? I mean like EVER?

  • Maknusia

    bcoz…Hill -> Roll

  • I am The Jason

    Why is Wesley Johnson in the NBA. The man could not hit water shooting from a boat.

  • his scoring really helped for sure! 6/9

  • Alaingrvis

    hill hates easy layups

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin needs a 3…

  • sport

    Dude is flat footed all the time, can’t roll ><"

  • Riddick

    Hill is allergic to any play that takes him higher than 1″ off the floor. smh

  • he can run, jump, and … sometimes shoot

  • Alaingrvis

    lounge wil finis games….. yes

  • Alaingrvis

    younge

  • roberlin

    are they playing in LA? Big Laker crowd at the arena.

  • Maknusia

    darn…missed the 3

  • Maknusia

    good rebound…CB

  • sport

    Lin always get those tick tac fouls from bias refs!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy sets BETTER screens than Jordan Hill.

  • sport

    Come on Lin make some buckets for that 20 point game!!

  • Maknusia

    may be too quick

  • Maknusia

    I see KObe is gonna start his thing…until there is some good lead

  • LW

    Kobe is going to take every shot from now on! smh!

  • roberlin

    Why is Millsap so wide open?

  • I am The Jason

    Why are the Lakers running their offense thru Kobe right now. SMH

  • Brent Yen

    Boozer did not go out

  • sport

    Come on Lin break the 15 point mark with 5 more points! Get to the rim or get a 3 pointer!

  • Maknusia

    again…LAL are rushing for shots

  • BobbyH

    It is Kobe mode now.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    How did Millsap shoot that?!?!?!?

  • Bearness

    Because Kobe demands it.

  • Riddick

    Who’s not guarding Milsap?

  • sport

    Lin can waive him off if there’s a better shot.

  • Brent Yen

    Either Kobe or Boozer

  • roberlin

    It’s Kobe time. : (

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    6 pts lead, clock is your best friend.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not sure Lakers will win the game.

  • Alaingrvis

    he made a three we will have to live with that

  • Alaingrvis

    boozer or hill

  • sport

    Can Lin just get a 3 already?

  • 311

    Wow, Jeremy just has to swarm Teague and prevent him from even touching the ball.

  • Barry Allen

    Kobe Hog Time is back! Time to lose the game.

  • Maknusia

    exactly

  • Riddick

    Not just 1…won’t be saying that if Lakers lose this.

  • roberlin

    good kobe!

  • Barry Allen

    LOL. Kobe was the closest guy to Paul Misap and he’s chewing teammates out.

  • LW

    He missed that 3 and he is not getting the ball back.

  • roberlin

    nice D lin

  • Barry Allen

    Boozer point blank miss off a beautiful Lin pass. seriously?

  • Maknusia

    nice…now D pls

  • Michael

    Does Boozer know how to make a layup?

  • Riddick

    It’s never a given w/this team.

  • Barry Allen

    Good foul by Lin.

  • sport

    Might be clear path ><"

  • Brent Yen

    Not really

  • Barry Allen

    bleh

  • roberlin

    crap, bad foul.

  • Maknusia

    need couple of big blocks or D

  • Bearness

    Ugh…

  • LW

    Lakers might as well go 1-82 if they manage to lose this one!

  • Michael

    Can’t blame Nick too much, for being out of sync on defense and not being in condition yet but…sigh.

  • roberlin

    GOOD KOBE!!

  • Maknusia

    Kobe Bryant!!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ok Kobe enough ballhogging now. You got your 32,000nd point.

  • Brent Yen

    That foul is hard to explain. Swaggy P did not block. Kobe should have ran too. Lin was betting Kobe already ran for a few feet. Lin did not even check where Kobe was

  • Haha… Nick Young for 3FTs!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Haha thanks for that 3 Fts!

  • Michael

    Teague dropped Lin and Lin was called for the foul.= =

  • Maknusia

    2 missed

  • sport

    Lin out in crunch time?! Why?!

  • That should be game

  • Maknusia

    it happens all the time in NBA…so…no point whining on it

  • roberlin

    why is Wes Johnson coming in for Lin? Johnson is going to guard Teague?

  • LW

    Ref helping the Lakers on that Young foul!

  • 311

    5 fouls.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Johnson on Teague? How?!?!?!

  • Dorothy

    They put Johnson in for Lin SMH

  • Alaingrvis

    he has 5 fouls defense sub

  • looks like it

  • I am The Jason

    That last foul on Lin was wrong. Refs have it in for him.

  • Alaingrvis

    5 fouls

  • Maknusia

    and they would need him just in case if game goes on OT

  • Barry Allen

    Wes may have to take a foul. Lin can’t.

  • 717

    BS!

  • Michael

    This is going to be funny.

  • Bearness

    This is the way Kobe wants it. Win the game is not good enough. It has to be win the game because of Kobe.

  • Price and Wes in for defensive purpose

  • Barry Allen

    Yeah that was a BAD call. Lin didn’t foul.

  • Maknusia

    good cleanup by hill

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Johnson guarding Millsap?!?!?!?! How?!?!

  • Riddick

    Yup, they’re the best D. lol

  • Brent Yen

    So much for the D team….

  • Maknusia

    defense guys….lets get this one!

  • roberlin

    Whew. Looks like that’s the game. Too bad Lin was out at the end.

  • Hill with a great rebound and putback.
    That should be his job all the time

  • Alaingrvis

    that was messy but ill take it

  • Brent Yen

    Not yet, ATL have enough shooters to pull it off. Unless they just give up

  • SamC89

    Just in case they do tie, they will need Lin in OT. And since Lin has 5 fouls, that’s just being safe.

  • Bearness

    You mean… you don’t like his jumpers? =)

  • Maknusia

    thats true

  • John Lee

    Refs always have, and always will short change Lin.

  • 717

    0.9 sec is a long time!

  • Dorothy

    less than 1 min, who cares

  • Alaingrvis

    he is ify on all shots

  • roberlin

    oops, spoke too soon. Still a game.

  • Maknusia

    missed free! yeah

  • Lin will check in for FT purpose

  • Maknusia

    2 miss

  • sport

    14 second left, Lin back in!

  • Bearness

    I was joking. I hate Hill taking jumpers, maybe once in a while, but not making a living off of it.

  • Maknusia

    and they hit a 3….smh

  • roberlin

    oh crap.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Stupid coach, no davis or boozer for offensive rebound?

  • Barry Allen

    92% FT shooter. heck yeah.

  • Maknusia

    hssss

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Korver… really?

  • sport

    Go figure but Ronnie Price the scrub is in?! Scott is stupid!

  • roberlin

    ugh, PRICE!

  • Alaingrvis

    they give it to the worse shooter on the team price lol

  • Maknusia

    watch it….. lets not mock players as scrub

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    SMH

  • Riddick

    This coach…..

  • CaliUSMC

    Byron has no clue what to do

  • Brent Yen

    7 seconds. We will know which type of coach Scott is. Foul or bet on stops

  • roberlin

    I’d foul.

  • Alaingrvis

    not bryon hill

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This is opinion site, we’re not sitting in your living room

  • Bearness

    Why not? He’s a great, great 3 point shooter.

  • bet on stops, I think

  • sport

    But Price is a scrub ><" Every PG blows by him! Why not have Davis, Hill, and Boozer in for offense rebounds?!

  • Maknusia

    its all about coaching now

  • Michael

    The 5th foul by Lin, Teague pushing Lin down with his left arm and the ref 3 feet away.

  • Riddick

    He doesn’t through out the game. He’s completely incompetent. It’s not the players….it’s the coach losing games.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Whoever is guarding Korver or Millsap, WATCH OUT!!!!!

  • roberlin

    ugh. when will this game end?

  • Brent Yen

    Just star call.

  • sport

    OMG bad defense wide open shot, thank goodness they missed!

  • Maknusia

    hahah…it feels like never

  • roberlin

    just hit one shot. and brick the second.

  • SamC89

    And that’s why Lin was taken out, just in case they go into OT.

  • Brent Yen

    IDK that guy, is he good?

  • John Lee

    What about Wes, it’d be factual…

  • Brent Yen

    like he can hit one

  • roberlin

    thank you, Jordan Hill!

  • Brent Yen

    HIll!

  • PHEW!!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Good thing the last Atlanta play wasn’t for Korver or Millsap.

  • Maknusia

    yeah…finally over!!!

  • LW

    Hill saved Kobe’s a$$ with that offensive rebound! Lakers are just lucky with this win. Nothing much has changed.

  • Maknusia

    Nice WIN!!!

  • roberlin

    man, if the Lakers were in the east, they’d actually be competitive, imo. 2-0 against playoff contending eastern conference teams.

  • Riddick

    Wow…Lakers win their 2nd game despite their lack of coach. Big kudos to Bryant for controlling is iso habit.

  • Maknusia

    Time to get ROX now!!!

  • such a hard-fought WIN!

  • yeah, not sure what they were doing there

  • 717

    Beg Kobe to play nice

  • Maknusia

    good win…against the Odds I say

  • John Lee

    Lakers play 5 on 8, AND has to fight against bad coaching…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I know. The tone of my post is Korver is a ridiculous good shooter.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    congrats to all Lin fans.

  • Alaingrvis

    why are you going at him. he took lin out with 5 fouls correct. with boozer out too slow correct. what was wrong

  • JW

    not sure why kobe feels he needed to try to control the ball at the end when they were doing well as a team.

  • sport

    Players were in for defense but Price was in? What kind of koolaid is Scott drinking?! Every PG blows by Price; Davis, Hill, and Boozer should’ve all been in during that 14 second defensive play.

  • Brent Yen

    He thinks. I rested in the 3rd Q. only took a few shots. My turn now

  • 717

    why? we all forsook Lin

  • joyce ward

    I am so proud of lin. he did well.

  • Alaingrvis

    i guess we will whine no matter what

  • Bearness

    I think it’s because Kobe knew coming into this game that it was winnable. So, he toned it down and did what he knows works, play team ball. If the match up is no contest, I guarantee you he will go back to iso-Kobe. Kobe knows how to play team ball and knows it works. Whether he feels like doing it is another story.

  • Michael

    Yes we are γƒΎ(*Β΄βˆ€ο½€*)οΎ‰

  • roberlin

    let it go. It was a great win. Great game by Lin.

  • JW

    worthy giving Lin credits for controling the team.

  • yes, very decisive and aggressive!

  • sport

    No thanks to Scott for leaving Lin and starters out until 6 minutes of 4th quarter for the Hawks to come back!!

  • roberlin

    Jeremy was awesome tonight. What a game.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That ref deserves that Thunder!

  • webattorney

    Missed most of the game, but I see Lin only took 7 shots.

  • sport

    Well Kobe did make some clutch shots to keep the team up top. It’s already good enough that he didn’t hog the ball, now he needs to learn to trust his team during crunch time.

  • roberlin

    that I agree with. Should have brought the starters back in around the eight minute mark.

  • Dorothy

    Who is worse coach BS or McHale?

  • roberlin

    Lin had an amazing game. No big deal about how many shots he took.

  • Alaingrvis

    actually a big man three good defense

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Wasn’t able to watch much 4th qtr as the streaming just didn’t work. Seem like not much action from JLin anyway.

  • John Lee

    Tell me with a straight face that Lin’s 5th foul wasn’t bogus, and that Price is a good defender.

  • sport

    He’s been doing that every game and by the time Lin or starters are back it’s already a blowout!

  • roberlin

    McHale.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Time to get Rockets tomorrow.. by J-Ed PnR all day. Hill, you need to body up against Dwight.

  • I am The Jason

    Kudos for Lin with the Double Double. I guess Kobe waited until the end of the game to perform his patented fadaways one after the other. I can deal with that as long as its not to excessive

  • 717

    made 6 of them

  • roberlin

    Only came in around the 6 minute mark. And then a lot of Kobe iso.

  • bolero

    it’s lagging i can barely watch it..

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Still McHale

  • webattorney

    I see he had 15 points and 10 assists. That’s pretty good on 7 attempts.

  • Alaingrvis

    didn’t like how kobe dominated the ball late but he is the closer we will have to live with that

  • sport

    Time to shut up the Rocket who said they’ll take it to Lakers for their blow out loss against Grizzlies.

  • Riddick

    Could be, but I have to give him credit for this ‘one’ to be fair. We’ll have to see for the next game. I’m learning that I can only go by game to game w/this team…too unpredictable.

  • LW

    He sees a crime when others are shooting instead of him. This is from his previous interview.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Mine is totally gone just lagging. Very annoying!

  • roberlin

    Still Kobe’s team, unfortunately, lol. But, I’ll take that over Kobe all the time, every time.

  • Acbc

    Mchale by infinity x infinity

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Dreaming, my dear!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This is a good win to bring to Houston tomorrow.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If Hill won’t body up against Dwight tomorrow he deserves a palm in the face.

    Jeremy is STILL an efficient scorer. Enough of the 0-2 argument.

  • roberlin

    It’ll be a tough game, playing away on the second game of a back to back.

  • sport

    But it could’ve been an easier win if not for Scott’s horrible subsitition and limitation on Lin’s minutes! Every starter got to play with 2nd unit this game except Lin, why?! Johnson gets the 2nd longest leash of the team even those he’s been shooting single digits every game.

  • Alaingrvis

    young added that other option we was missing teams would double kobe while closing the middle on lin. today with young in the court was a lot more open allow lin to dish out a lot of assist or shoot it

  • Bearness

    Lin played great D on Teague. Stopped many of his drives, without fouling and without Teague scoring. Teague is super fast so for Lin to do that without help is pretty impressive. Then again, we already know he’s a good defender. =)

  • His ISOs were money at the right time in the 4th quarter.

    This is actually good because now Kobe will share the ball for 3 quarters and try to ISOs in the 4th :]
    Baby steps to do team-ball!

  • roberlin

    6-7 from the field. Awesome efficiency. But, I’m sure some people will be whining about him not taking enough shots, lol.

  • sport

    Can something be done about Ref’s bias ticky tac fouls on Lin?!! They do it every game!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Alaingrvis

    he did well last time. not fouling harden was the dagger

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Too late.

  • roberlin

    He played very well for the entire game, Kobe!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Bearness

    LOL, somehow I read it as a psalm in the face.

  • sport

    Yes during crunch time I don’t mind, just don’t brick all the shots of the team away! But he needs to learn to pass to Lin during crunch time who’s wide open.

    @JLin7 good bounce pass To Ed http://t.co/FXRVCfK07j— Librafree (@Librafree) November 19, 2014

  • Riddick

    Lin treament = mcF & coaching = still early to determine, but close thus far. lol

  • CJSHYY

    I think he means specially 3Q.

  • Alaingrvis

    he will never be a volume shooter. this is what he is 50 percent 45 at the lowest. when he reaches his prime he will do it all the time

  • bolero

    better KObe than Haren

  • 717

    When Kobe behaves the team is pretty good.

  • LW

    It’s all up to Kobe, because you won’t see any J-Ed PnR if Kobe doesn’t allow it. He is the BOSS!

  • Alaingrvis

    he had 5 fouls regardless whether refs bailed him out

  • roberlin

    JLin had the most difficult double-double. Relatively easy to get 10 points and 10 rebounds, not so easy to get 10 points and 10 assists.

    BS edging over Mchale by a little cause he’s starting Lin and giving him around 30 minutes per game. If only he’d stay leaving Lin out so long during 3rd and 4th quarter!

  • John Lee

    Yes, but BS working hard towards “winning”.

  • Riddick

    Not sure that’s enough to brag about, but I’ll take it for now.

  • roberlin

    What’s Howard Chen doing now? He’s no longer working in Houston, is he?

  • sport

    He got a double double and Scott only put starters back in with 6 minutes left on 4th quarter. During 4th Kobe did his thing and only passed to Lin once for an open 3 which he missed. After that Kobe just went ball hog mode again except when passing to Hill.

  • Alaingrvis

    im guessing they ask why he did shoot much the 3rd

  • 717

    Ya noticed?

  • SamC89

    I would be SOOOOOO happy. I admit that sounds bitter but I really want the Rockets to fail. Just like the Knicks.

    @NBA_Skits Kobe Bryant's 32,000 career points is a fadeaway and-1 in the clutch. What an amazing way to get 32k.— NBA SKITS (@NBA_Skits) November 19, 2014

  • I am The Jason

    This is what happens when the offense is run thru Lin.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I think he is.

  • 717

    In both #Lakers wins this yr, @Kobe took less than 20 shots.

  • SamC89

    It partially changed during the first 3 quarters but then in crunch time it reverted back to the old way.

    Hopefully they see that. I would say the loss against the Clippers was similar. Team ball, and then Kobe ball when he (Kobe) got nervous. Basically if Kobe can trust his teammates more, they’ll win more games.

    Wonder why Grizzlies didn’t resign Ed Davis. Oh well, good and timely find by Lakers though hehe

    I’m w/you. I want karma to be a ‘female dog’.

  • roberlin

    Who is Penny Lee and how does she get such great pics? Lol.

  • sport

    I hope Kobe and Lakers are fired up from the Rocket player who made that dissing comment about them! Lin better be mad and fired up next game!!

    Lin – (11GMS) – 30.6mins / 12pts (47FG%/ 39.2%3PT/ 91%FT) / 4.9asts / 1.2stls / 2.6to’s

    My sister.

  • sport

    Well Lin did miss that open 3 point shot in 4th the only pass Kobe was willing to give him SMH! ><" Lin could've easily gotten 20 points if he got to play against Hawks bench like every other starters!

  • LW

    That’s what happens when Kobe doesn’t take 20 or 30 shots a game. But he doesn’t care!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Rockets still salty for that blowout by Grizzlies and they’re going to use the Lakers as punching bag? Please.. that’s not coincidence. That is EXPOSURE. That is the TRUTH.

  • Brent Yen

    Gotta give Hill credit, he swung the ball to weakside more.

  • sport

    Still waiting for Lin to get 20 10 for a game always so close but it’s difficult with this team. I seriously think Lin can get a double double easier focusing on rebounding when Boozer and Hill aren’t giving effort. He’s got a great sense of where the ball will bounce out from.

  • Riddick

    Now, that’s a well balanced team game.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • sws94

    What Lin did. Give them an earful. Byron needs to ride them to when they do that.

  • Brent Yen

    Had we get Kelly, this game can be won easier.

  • bolero

    Get your 1st double-double like Lin!

  • John Lee

    Bogus call = bailing out? I don’t understand you.

  • more like satire.. dry laugh :]

  • you mean.. you do like his jumpers? πŸ˜€

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The Rockets one and only defensive plan is to triple team Kobe. If Kobe passes tomorrow and Jeremy controls the team, there’s a good chance they can win

  • Michael

    But I’m a big whiner…

  • sport

    Kobe can go on a winning streak if only they’d play like this every game. Lets go get that win against the ugly Rockets!

  • sport

    Except Kelly hasn’t gotten many minutes due to his constant hamstring injuries. We still haven’t see what he’s capable out last season. He’s a poor man’s Dirk when he’s healthy and Lakers would be complete when he’s back.

  • nodomo

    Hawks announcers at the start of the game “you’ve gotta think that Teague will have his way with Jeremy tonight”. smh.

  • blubell
  • 717

    Stay on track to pass MJ in 10 games

  • sport

    Yes thanks been waiting for this cause I missed most of 1st quarter.

  • dons

    Wasn’t it 10 Assists at the Half?

  • sport

    Watching Lin’s highlights I noticed how he rarely passes to Wes Johnson mostly to the bigs. I do wonder whether Lin can get Johnson going if he gave him some more easy passes. Johnson has just been playing horrible though a non factor on both ends of the floor.

  • sport

    They dissed Lin through out the entire game even when Lin schooled Teague with steals and back to back assists! So fking annoying! I had a stream with higher quality but had to switch to a lower one because of them!

  • CaliUSMC

    12/6

  • Pete Roces

    The refs can’t see the fouls commited on Lin, but they blow whistles on Lin who barely touches his opponents. NBA refs are biased, they will never allowed an Asian kid to shine, nothing we can do about it.

  • CJSHYY

    Johnson’s shot always not in so better not waste the chance.. he was in for D purpose that’s what coach said…?! Even I don’t think he is good in D or O.
