G13 LAL @ DAL Game Thread

After a quiet game vs HOU when a tired Lin had the honor of being the focal point of defense with multiple traps and swarming double-team, how would Lin respond in this game with 1 day rest? After 0pt GSW game, Lin produced a double-double (15pts/10asts) in ATL when they didn’t focus their defense on him. Tonight will be tougher because Rick Carlisle (DAL coach) noticed how well Kobe and Lin has grown in chemistry so it’s safe to say Lin is in DAL game-plan.

It’s great to see the Lakers played as a team with good defensive plans for 2 games which persuaded Kobe to not put on his superhero cape too soon to “fight crime”. 2 Good Defensive games resulted in 2 Wins!

I expect Lin has his legs back and sharp decision-making thus having his main weapon to drive the rim. Let’s hope Lin repeat history to follow a bad game with a great game! I’m interested to see if the Lakers have the the time to discuss how to run plays for Lin or Kobe/Lin to play off each other. The Lakers focused well on defense which helped them to get 2 wins in ATL and HOU.

DAL is #1 in the league in PointsPerGame and #5 in assists so defense is definitely the key to the game to slow down DAL to steal another win!

  • Brent Yen

    I just realized now that Lin is actually having a game in Dallas. LOL

  • too late to buy a ticket now :]

  • ok, with Devin Harris out injured and Felton being suspended, who’s going to guard Lin?

    Injuries:
    Lakers:
    Out: Steve Nash (back), Julius Randle (leg), Wayne Ellington (personal), Ryan Kelly (Hamstring)

    Mavs:
    Out: Devin Harris (leg), Ray Felton (suspension)
    Probable: Dirk Nowitzki (ankle)

  • GoodDayLA

    joke or real talk?

  • GoodDayLA

    Kobe will guard lin.

  • winner

    Go JLin! Bring the 4th win for LAL and stuff your stats with 15/8/4/3. Hope for fair refs in this game. 🙂

  • GoodDayLA

    I dont really care about Lin’s stats anymore. He’s not going to shine too bright in LA because LA = Kobe. I just want Lin to play consistent and put up some positive contributions each and every game. I do not want 30 points one night, then 2 points the next. 10 assists one night then 1 assist with 4 TO.

    Lin’s up and down is my greatest concern. He is unreliable right now and that is what is most important for him to fix.

    I dont care if he averages 6 and 6. But at least average 6 and 6!

    Oh and I want the Lakers to win a lot!

  • Alaingrvis

    these old jokes which would of said harden last year or melo before that is boring be more original please

  • Arsenium12 .

    What about Jameer Nelson and JJ Barea?

  • GoodDayLA

    you are unoriginal at times but I leave you alone.

  • GoodDayLA

    what about the refs?

  • how about “Only Houston Lin can guard NY Lin?”

  • Brent Yen

    I can. it shows around 80! WTH….Lakers is really doing well financially. Pelicans game only cost 16 for the same seat here I believe. But I will not pay NBA any money anyway. Just saying.

  • Brent Yen

    IDK, never been in LA. But I can guarantee that HOU traffic is crazy.

  • GoodDayLA

    what was Ramon Sessions PPG next to Kobe? Like 12PPG? or 14PPG? Lin should be able to at least average what Ramon did.

  • Rick Johnson

    Aren’t the PG’s left JJ Barea and Jameer Nelson? Is Kobe going to guard Monta Ellis?

  • GoodDayLA

    The guard matchups favor Lin. Unless they put SF defensive guy on Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is struggling because of himself and what he has to do

  • GoodDayLA

    Oh I see. LA traffic is horrible but it must move better than Houston’s apparently.

  • Alaingrvis

    sure right now because idk he spent 2 year in houston if he had the same time with this offense i doubt it

  • GoodDayLA

    if that is the case, Lin basically sucks then.

  • JT

    huh? LA traffic is one of the worst in the US

  • Alaingrvis

    if thats what yu believe then go ahead

  • GoodDayLA

    Honestly, I would be very happy for Lin if he averaged 33 minutes a game, with 5 ppg and 3 assist per game and made the NBA Western finals.

    I would be ok with it. Would you?

  • GoodDayLA

    no that’s what you are saying. Not me.

  • Brent Yen

    Sure…why not?

  • I think stock-traders will disagree with you :] They can only make money with fluctuations.

    NBA scouts craves ‘potentials’!
    I’d rather Lin score 21/7, 0/3, 15/10 , 3/2 as long as Lakers keep winning because of his major contribution!
    Even if the stats don’t necessarily reflect that.

  • GoodDayLA

    that type of volatility would honestly mean Lin is a bad player. No good players have that much up and down in history. So I hope that is not the case.

  • yes, watching big-screen TV with sweatpants at home is tough too beat :>

  • Brent Yen

    I thought so too. I need ppl who has went to both places to confirm. Just out of curiosity.

  • GoodDayLA

    I don’t know, I feel many Lin fans would not be ok with 5 and 3 and a lot of team success for Lin playing big minutes. I am ok with that now.

  • GoodDayLA

    I have noticed in the games where Lin really stinks badly, his team is usually always in those games and never blown out.

  • that’s true. Maybe Lin will guard Monta then.
    Lin should torch Nelson

  • Brent Yen

    It is clear that some contributions can not be measured. If somehow you can stay on the floor that many minutes and your team can go all the way to the final….I would say you have some king of good impact, a big one….

  • yeah, I hope Lin will attack Nelson from the get-go!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol so the idea lin is struggling like idk lebron in a new team getting the whole offense and btw he is a pg. your bball iq has to be low. he is basically the qb of the team. needing to know the offense and t=defense while telling other people what play to run. it difficult so this cry baby mentality where its kobe fault or lin suck is a false choice. its so simplistic and doesnt fully grasp the job lin has to do.

  • Alaingrvis

    Ok so some fans want to blame kobe or say if its not kobe lin sucks. The idea lin is struggling like idk lebron in a new team getting
    the whole offense and btw he is a pg. he is
    basically the qb of the team. needing to know the offense and defense
    while telling other people where to be its quite difficult. so this cry
    baby mentality where its kobe fault or lin suck is a false choice. its
    so simplistic and doesnt fully grasp the job lin has to do.

  • CJSHYY

    So how many shots did he take per game? Like under 10?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Drove thru many cities in May 2013. I would say Houston was worse. GPS really had hard time to cope with Houston changed traffic, kept on bringing to toll roads and around the places. LA is more predictable and manageable to me.

  • test

  • GoodDayLA

    wow

  • real-dsb

    wow, didn’t think that was possible to have worse traffic than LA

  • BuzzerBeater

    I’d only be okay with it because it would mean he’s playing incredible, all-time great, future HOF defense 😛

    But realistically no PG playing that many minutes and averaging so little will be on a team that makes it to the Western Finals. Gotta do a lot more than that especially from a PG.

  • ok, Disqus is back on-line. That was a 7-min maintenance 😀
    Quite impressive!

  • Guest

    You always show up at the right time just when we need you!

  • GoodDayLA

    in Lin and Lebron’s situation, the problems are ego and personnel. Has little to do with what you are saying. Playing basketball is the easy part.

  • yeah, those Disqus people don’t like to discuss things first :>

  • orLinaryjoe

    That is true. I was going to say, the assists would probably higher for the other two factors to work, or fantastic D, in blocks, steals, and no turnovers for him to be out on the floor that long.

  • they might finish maintenance by 18:00 PST so there might be glitches until then

  • real-dsb

    Sessions had 9.2 FGA/g, 12.7 pts, 6.2 ast. But that team had 2 bigs in Bynum and Pau who could draw the defense. Between them and Kobe, Sessions was probably open most of the time. Which is evidenced by his 49% 3pt with the Lakers. Way higher than his career avg of 31% 3pt.

  • yes, let’s expect glitches until 18:00 PST when they finish maintenance

  • Alaingrvis

    lol they need competition thats the only way corporations respect people

  • real-dsb

    we might break 2000 posts this game LOL

  • orLinaryjoe

    Whoa, this comment posted 4 times

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know it was so crazy. Took me about 2.5 hrs to get to the restaurant to meet my brother & sis in-law (from Canada) and childhood friend and his wife for dinner. According to GPS, it was supposed to be about 1 hr drive. GPS got me to toll roads several times but was getting farther away from destination. So frustrating.

    After dinner, it was even more ridiculous. Supposed only to be 2 exits from restaurant to motel (5 minutes drive). Somehow, it kept on bringing us to tolls which couldn’t get to the road to the motel. Took us almost an hour after we abandoned both GPS instructions and got there by ourselves. We were so glad to leave Houston the next day:-) So, I would say Houston was the worst driving experience in my whole 25 days trip.

  • Looks like Roscoe Smith might be back soon after posting impressive results in the D-League.
    18pts/16reb ? Wow!
    I like Roscoe in the last preseason game.

    Believe it. The road system there was ridiculous. Experienced both last May and early March.

  • LOL.. You may create the 2nd half thread if that’s the case :>

  • Brent Yen

    HE gives efforts at least he did in preseason. Well. Price gave effort in preseason too…M..

  • It must be the shoes!

  • not costing arms & legs :]

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    @psalm234:disqus Seem like the tip off time for the game on the side bar is 1 hr off. It was so misleading in last game that I missed the first 10-15 minutes of game as a result:-)

  • if it’s a long-term yes. Let’s hope it’s a short-term adjustment

  • Brent Yen

    My arms and legs definitely would sold for less…sadly

  • JoeTeam

    Jeremy: Ok, listen up. I had dinner with Parsons last night. You’ll never guess what he said.

    Kobe: What?

  • real-dsb

    my game prediction:

    If the Mavs are smart, they will use the same strategy as other teams. Double/trap Lin and take him out of the flow. Let Kobe jack up shots with low efficiency (25+ pts, < 40% fg). Lakers have not shown much ability to counter this. I predict Dirk to go off for 25+ pts. Who's going to stop him? Hill, Boozer?

    Given single defender, Lin would have been able to outplay Jameer Nelson, but if Mavs double Lin, then I think it's another 8 pt, 3 ast, 4 fga night. Mavs win by 8, 107-99.

    super optimistic prediction: Just like the Rockets, they beat up on poor teams and are overrated. Trapping Lin will give his teammates easy looks. Lakers win 102-100.

  • GoodDayLA

    good analysis

  • wait, you mean it’s too early or to late?
    Isn’t it 27 min more min at 17:30 PST (20:30 ET)?

  • I added it in the post. Thanks!

  • real-dsb

    Disqus issues today.

  • GoodDayLA

    Kobe is hard to guard 1 on 1 when he is on. We’ll see if Lin can give Kobe enough 1 on 1 to keep the defense honest all the way around.

    If I were playing right now, I’d just double KObe and bet on him not passing and icing out the team rather than focus on Lin to allow Kobe to go 1 on 1.

  • JoeTeam

    Jeremy: Anybody else guess?

  • real-dsb

    We should put the game time (PT) in plain text at the top of every pregame and game threads. That way it will be a fixed reference that people can see even if not using the countdown.

  • roberlin

    Mavs favored to win by 11.5 points. I think Lakers have a chance of beating the spread. They are probably going to lose, though.

    JLin will have a bounce back game. Realistic prediction – 13 points, 6 assists, 1 for 3 from three.

    Wishful thinking prediction – 21 points, 8 assists, 3 for 5 from three.

    If JLin has a good game, Lakers will still lose, but the game will be relatively close.

  • real-dsb

    Actually, might as well put the day and date too, since people might get confused by the wordpress post date. So for example, the first line of the body would be:

    Fri Nov 21, 2014 5:30pm PT

  • roberlin

    As for the score, it’ll be a high scoring game, with Dallas winning 117-ish to 106-ish.

  • real-dsb

    well, I expect teams to double both Kobe and Lin–not at the same time of course, but whoever has the ball. So as soon as Lin brings the ball up, they trap Lin. If Lin passes to Kobe, then the defense immediately rotates to double Kobe, who is likely to shoot through the double team rather than pass it back out.

  • JoeTeam

    Gerald Green Phx hot tonight. I like to think good omen for Lin because Green has been hot and cold so Let’s go Jer.

  • real-dsb

    nah, I’m afraid Disqus will create duplicate threads LOL

  • roberlin

    So, what did Parsons say?

  • Promo Sports World

    Link or stream?

  • Arsenium12 .
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    The count down – it says 1 hr 25 minutes til game time. I believe the game will start in 1 min.

  • JoeTeam

    Jeremy: Ha. Roberlin. Parsons told me they are going to try to trap me and keep me out of the paint. And Dirk said just try to pull a 3 over me. BTW, roberlin, I like your posts in my fan site.

    Carlisle giving a shout out to Jeremy. “we gotta do a good job on Jeremy”

    I want to hate you but I can’t…

  • real-dsb

    Carlisle pregame interview just said, “Jeremy Lin’s having a good year”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What did he say?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Thanks

  • IsabeliJane*17

    “He’s off to a rough start but he’s having a good year”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Thank you.

  • real-dsb

    Which shows how smart Carlisle is, doesn’t just look at the PPG.

    But now I’m worried that the Mavs will focus on Lin on defense. =(

  • roberlin

    Mentioned Kobe first, Jeremy Lin second. Then Nick Young. Those three are obviously the guys Carlisle wants to shut down.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I like Nick but Lin is a bigger threat in years.

  • roberlin

    Are you saying Carlisle knows better than internet Lin bashers who talk as if he’s the worst PG in the world?

  • John Lee

    Oh by no means. After all, he only has an NBA championship, what does he know? LOL

  • Riddick

    Gooooo Lin…let’s add another one in the WIN column!!

  • roberlin

    Didn’t Jeremy get the block?

    Too bad hat shot went in and out. Shoot.

  • Alaingrvis

    no wide open

  • IsabeliJane*17

    3!!!

  • roberlin

    For three!! Yes.

  • orLinaryjoe

    screened 3!

  • roberlin

    Oops, an air ball.

    Lin looking to shoot the ball, 1 for 3 so far.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    oh no airball

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hello Australia.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hmm will Tyson be leaving the Knicks if Jeremy stayed as a Knick?

  • orLinaryjoe

    it’s ok, go again!

  • sport

    If the Knicks weren’t so bad probably. So long as Dolan is the owner they will never win a Championship!

  • roberlin

    Kobe on the slow-break.

  • sport

    At least he passed the ball.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    As expected, Dirk is singlehandly killing all the Lakers bigs.

    Another J basket!

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Jlin attacked to the rim 🙂

  • sport

    Jlin in attack mode, great! This game will be a close one. Lakers just need to defend well.

  • orLinaryjoe

    AttackLIN!

  • kauaiblue

    Hoews he doing?

  • Bearness

    Lakers D shaky, but making it up with great offense.

  • orLinaryjoe

    AttackLIN! 3pts, Airball, layup.

  • sport

    Yes what’s with the wide open 3s I hate those! Get some damn hands up in the air already!

  • Brent Yen

    we can ignore the airball….lol

  • roberlin

    Jlin playing off of Nelson trying to make sure he doesn’t get the second foul. Nelson recognizing that, having his way on offense.

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Kobe airball too its okay

  • roberlin

    5 points on 2 of 4 shooting.

  • orLinaryjoe

    good with the bad

  • JoeTeam

    Parsons cold and frozen out in corner. Cool! Dirk having his way with whomever. Nelson getting in and feasting in the interior D. LAL O looks ok.

  • Bearness

    Haha, a little too detailed.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    #Cold&Alone

  • sport

    It’s fine Kobe made an airball before Lin did as well just keep shooting!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Good that JLin takes more shots. Good on him!

  • Nelson is quick so it’s good to prevent him getting penetration resulting in easy points.
    Davis would be able to help

  • Bearness

    That’s OK since Nelson’s not a good shooter anyway, but bigs not helping much on pick and rolls (what else is new).

  • orLinaryjoe

    I’m ok with it. A miss is a miss. Getting good looks and not holding back!

  • sport

    Dirk’s height advantage is unstoppable just need to defend and hope for the best.

  • Great start by Lin to be aggressive.
    Everyone has scored except Kobe

  • JoeTeam

    swag don’t care if it’s a bad shot …

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Kobe should have passed that one…. wait…

  • livyrlife

    Dirk shoots 3 well, Boozer doesn’t even try…

  • JoeTeam

    his shot is so good from anywhere.

  • roberlin

    Ronnie Price in. Lame.

  • JoeTeam

    you’re here during game time now rare lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    every game

  • sport

    As much I feel Scott leaves Lin out too early during 3rd and too long during 4th, at least his bench times are consistent! Lin is always out at 1st quarter around the 3 minute mark no yo-yoing of his minutes.

  • Riddick

    Yup, wouldn’t want Scott to change anything…might see better results. smh

  • roberlin

    Lin played only 8 minutes. Probably pulled Lin for “defense.”

  • Bearness

    At least BS takes Lin out a little later than he used to. Improvement, I guess?

  • Alaingrvis

    whine

  • livyrlife

    it’s Sat morning…:)

  • roberlin

    Except Lin was taken out at the 4 minute mark. Probably for defensive reasons.

  • sport

    Lin’s always out at this time. But seriously I’d rather see Jordan Clarkson play, Price just a scrub of scrubs. We thought Pat Bev was bad but Price is like 10x worst and doesn’t even belong in the league! Price can’t defend can’t, can’t score, no presence! At least Clarkson can make a highlight and mark on the game with his 3s, defense and hustle. I’d rather see someone like Aaron Brooks backing Lin up with his hook shots and swooshing 3s.

  • Brent Yen

    That is just a typical rotation for 3 stints

  • CJSHYY

    No, that’s normal.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Carlisle knows the Lakers’ bigs are weak. His Mic’d Up is so interesting.

  • Alaingrvis

    what a lie

  • Bearness

    Used to be around 6-7 min mark. Now 8 min mark.

  • roberlin

    whine what?

  • Alaingrvis

    normal rotation for every one since young has been back

  • roberlin

    what is your problem???

  • Alaingrvis

    crying about everything even when its been 11 games and lin comes out at this time everytime. get over it. its even later then before

  • sport

    Compared to Tyson Chandler, Lakers bigs aren’t even bigs! Tyson Chandler fights hard down low for every rebound and throws it down.

  • roberlin

    If you are going to insult people, go to the other site and insult people all you want.

  • Alaingrvis

    its a lie he came out at 3 something like yesterday

  • JoeTeam

    oh, right! Lin gonna give you a good day.

  • Alaingrvis

    i did not insult you. you cried about something i told you its ok relax it happen every game

  • sport

    Ok Lakers need to keep this close until Lin gets back! Don’t let Mavs go with a huge lead before 2nd quarter!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I don’t like BS rotation at all.

  • CaliUSMC

    I swear these scrubs (Nelson) always come to play when they play against Lin.

  • Guest

    Agree. Wholeheartly agree.

  • sport

    Not going to change just like how we wish for Davis to start but won’t happen.

  • CaliUSMC

    I don’t like BS at all.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Agree

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He said one thing and done another.

  • BobbyH

    Kobe 0/7

  • orLinaryjoe

    no swag today

  • Alaingrvis

    when

  • Alaingrvis

    why what did he do

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    You need help if you don’t know by now. I Have no time now to post a link.

  • orLinaryjoe

    he needs to pull a Lin and go to assist mode.

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe is more physical when JJ Brea blazing the PnR

  • Bearness

    I think Kobe is not fully in game shape yet.

  • Brent Yen

    And Lin pull a Kobe go to gunner mode? lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    BS needs to be reminded that he’s not playing against McHale and the Rockets where they loaded up on Jeremy.He can let Jeremy attack in this game.

  • Alaingrvis

    since you sid this list year and the year before it gets old. hating all of lin coaches and players except the coach during insanity gets old

  • orLinaryjoe

    Exactly

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Like I’ve said, you need help.

  • sport

    OMG Sacre stupid play!!

  • CaliUSMC

    Sacre the Wizard

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL Kobe and Sacre

  • Alaingrvis

    lol funny delusions delusions

  • sport

    ShxT!!!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • JoeTeam

    gee, w/o Lin. What a mess.

  • cheapjing

    no

  • Brent Yen

    Complete collapse. LOL

  • roberlin

    That 5 second sequence might be the game.

  • Riddick

    Yup, great adjustments Scott. Keep doing what you do & see the team go nowhere fast.

  • CaliUSMC

    umm what just happened..

  • real-dsb

    I thought 5 pt play was bad, now the Lakers have invented the 7 pt play! LOL

  • sport

    Scott please bench Sacre the Dumbass that game 7 free points to Mavs!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Delusion? Let try to test your knowledge, did BS say he limits Kobe minutes, yes or no?

  • Brent Yen

    This is not even about Lin. It is simply just ________

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Collapse early in the game? Sheesh this is winnable game.

  • JoeTeam

    I was thinking the same … if you have a dumb play like Kobe/Sacre, you put Lin in to change it up asap.

  • dons

    BS’s eyes barely flickered on that play. So passive! Needs fire in the belly and some body language. Think he says anything in the locker room?

  • roberlin

    this WAS a winnable game, lol.

  • BobbyH

    Give Sacre a chance to redeem himself. People made mistakes.

  • sport

    Why the heck was Sacre inbounding the ball TWICE?!

  • real-dsb

    see what happens when Lin’s not on the floor

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Left for few minutes and returned with 11 pts deficit. WOW!

  • Brent Yen

    This is ALMOST NEVER a winnable game.

  • JoeTeam

    Yeah, I know about the rotation. but really, when you see the spread start happening because of bad play, I’d put Lin in because he was hot and Swag, Kobe are ice.

  • sport

    Right so he can give the Mavs a blowout with his dumb plays! He needs to be benched ASAP!

  • MoominFloren

    that’s really sucks

  • Brent Yen

    that is his job

  • orLinaryjoe

    Well, don’t leave, see what happens.

  • Bearness

    That was amazingly bad. This is pro basketball right? LOL.

  • JoeTeam

    I wouldn’t as coach. These are professionals. They have to sit and think.

  • Riddick

    His lack of coaching is hard to watch. Doesn’t make any changes or may be he doesn’t know how. smh

  • BobbyH

    Would you say the same to Lin?

  • Pete Roces

    Coachless team with ballhogs,iso plays. What a great franchise! Unbelievable!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Seem like it happens every time I leave the game:-)

  • CaliUSMC

    Wes Johnson is a new man since the free throw he made last game.

  • JoeTeam

    as far as I know, Lin has not inbounded to opponent.

  • John Lee

    Someone get the ropes and glue… 🙂

  • sport

    Lin won’t do horrible inbound to the other team!

  • Riddick

    You probably leave every time Lin’s benched. lol

  • orLinaryjoe

    Coach focused on D? Really, Lakers want their money back.

  • BobbyH

    Point missed.

  • Barry Allen

    nailed it

  • Brent Yen

    JJ Brea doing his thing…..

  • sport

    Wow we went straight to 2nd quarter with no commercials?

  • JoeTeam

    when he’s hot, he’s trouble.

  • Brent Yen

    Kind of hurt that way

  • orLinaryjoe

    You must leave a lot!

  • Brent Yen

    Well yes. But I am more talking about his way of D

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Good shot Sacre.

  • JoeTeam

    haven’t noticed … dirty?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I really, really have a problem with the Lakers bigs camping MIDRANGE.

  • Brent Yen

    Well. let’s just say he always push to refs limits.

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe is probibly the greatest laker ever

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Barea, you’re just lucky you got some good bigs.

  • MoominFloren

    just take price out!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Go Mav:-)

  • JoeTeam

    I got you … sheesh, 2 same play to wright. Where is D?

  • Rick Johnson

    Price just left in the dust

  • Alaingrvis

    why

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If he’s a starter he’d have double assists per game.

  • Riddick

    Mavs up by 11 & no adjustments from noCoach…wow.

  • roberlin

    Making Barea look like Chris Paul.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Keep JLin out of the game for longer and let’s see what happens with BS’ priceless Price.

  • Bearness

    Man, sitting Lin for so long. Just killing his rhythm.

  • Brent Yen

    The problem is simple. LAL bigs are told to not leaving Dirk. So Price needs to play Brea squared but he did not.

  • sport

    Scott still in denial of how extremely bad Price is! Can’t playmake, can’t score, can’t defend, ><" Price always going for the ZERO triple double, 0 points, 0 rebounds, 0 assists!!

  • JoeTeam

    maybe tanking?

  • MoominFloren

    he already makes everyone like CP!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    bench hs to get better if the was the playoff yes play the starters more but it isn’t so we have to let them figure it out

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes let’s keep watching Price get torched

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not my question.

  • Riddick

    It looks like he’s not able.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The issue – Lakers bigs can’t keep up with Dirk. Price can’t keep up with Barea.

  • Brent Yen

    Well, if you are at the good position and you can not keep up. That is just another story.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL pretty much so

  • Riddick

    …just a sad story. lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    BS should pull a McHale and have Jeremy guard Dirk….oh wait.

  • Michael

    Carlisle: These guys are going to struggle guarding movement XD

  • Skwo

    Seems like teams with a ball dominant player (Melo, Harden, Kobe) love the high energy, zero skill, point guards.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Carlisle must be snickering on the inside.

  • Michael

    My Snicker is inside already…

  • sport

    Why is Price still in?!

  • Alaingrvis

    theres a lot of negativity on this board. turning to the other website quick

  • Brent Yen

    Because he is supposed to start.

  • Riddick

    lol…might work.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So is my Cadbury.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is usaully stil in

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • sport

    More like the “coach” loves anyone not Asian!

  • Riddick

    Not negative Alain…just trying to make the game a bit interesting.

  • MoominFloren

    BIGs are bad; Price is really bad

  • Rick Johnson

    For defense. SMH

  • IsabeliJane*17

    We don’t have trolls. The PT of the mods is less than 5 minutes and usage percentage is less than 20%

  • livyrlife

    wrecking havoc here much?? jk ^.^

  • sport

    Nick Young in over Lin and Kobe makes a LONG airball 3!!

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe is….Kobe

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Look like an assessment game for Price. LAL is prepared to take the risk. If Price is not right..his contract is at risk.

  • JoeTeam

    “And that my friend is an air ball …”

  • BobbyH

    Next time he will shoot from half court.

  • sport

    OMG FINALLY Lin is BACK!

  • Michael

    He read our posts about Lin should shoot from half-court…

  • sport

    Even Kobe knew that was a BAD shot with 7 seconds left!

  • Love Lin

    OMG! Kobe + Swaggy P 0-12.. 🙁 C’mon! The Lakers.. Hope Lin’ll hv nice performance 2 win some pts back..

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    You don’t play your starter 8 min and rest him 8 min.

  • Promo Sports World

    Update

  • sws94

    Lin rested entirely too long.

  • Brent Yen

    Hill hiding in the paint is not going stop anyone in transition.

  • sport

    Lin out and Mavs are up 13 points! What will it take to get through Scott’s thick skull that 1. Price sucks 2.Nick Young isn’t PG 3.Lin needs more minutes!

  • Riddick

    You have a point, but it may be too late for a playoff shot if they continue to lose.

  • Rick Johnson

    If they don’t play him properly won’t help

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    40-53 with 5:49 left; JLin 2/4 with 5 pts 1 rebounds.

  • MoominFloren

    i thought assessment is already good enough to tell that Price is 3rd pg at most

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Contract on the line, i suppose.

  • Riddick

    You do if it’s a player named Lin.

  • Promo Sports World

    Thanks

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    lol

  • Guest

    You are leaving? I am so happy for you. First saying robert Lin whine, then crying about everything, get over it then saying takemebacktoreganyears delusion…I agree the other site suit you more. You are welcome back later when you vent all that there.

  • roberlin

    What a reverse lay-up by Lin!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well, that’s BS!!!!!!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    The only chance is to out score MAVS today….

  • sport

    Lin defending Ellis very well while his teammates sucks on defense!

  • Bearness

    You call that a chance? LOL.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That shot attempt by Monta… on Jeremy’s chest…

  • Brent Yen

    That is why I said they stand very LITTLE chance.

  • Promo Sports World

    Stats say good game

  • Michael

    So you say there’s a chance…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dang Scott!!!! Keep Jeremy playing! See that J!

  • Bearness

    Let’s hope for Linsanity then. =)

  • roberlin

    JEREMY LIN!!! Wow.

  • JoeTeam

    lin mad as h and not gonna take it anymore!

  • MoominFloren

    yes

  • IsabeliJane*17

    J killing the Mavs, and Carlisle has to call a timeout

  • sport

    Lin back to back buckets and a off the dribble 3 OMG FInallY! Been telling him to shoot more off dribble points! THIS TEAM NEEDS HIS SCORING!

  • Brent Yen

    Nelson is not guarding Lin at all LOL

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes 3!!!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Lin is on fire!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Kobe should just set screens. He does it better than the bigs.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Dallas coach is so smart, he calls timeout to control damage.

  • Promo Sports World

    Love this site so many positives here took me a while

  • JC

    That’s the reason I come to this site too

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Welcome. Feel free to post.

  • Barry Allen

    Yep that that’s the big difference.

  • JoeTeam

    post post !

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Too bad Davis missed that pass.

  • livyrlife

    how did that 1st TO happen?

  • Brent Yen

    striped

  • sport

    Lakers’ defense besides Lin is such 1 word BAD!!!

  • livyrlife

    bad handle?

  • Promo Sports World

    Following game on gamecast tough to do

  • Alaingrvis

    lin usaully have bundle turnovers

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clearly team still learn to play with Lin’s passing.

  • Brent Yen

    Well he is doing layups…not really dribbling.

  • sport

    Lin needs to pull a Linsanity game with 30 points for Lakers to win!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    QB throws one way receiver run another.

  • Brent Yen

    yes…they need to out score MAVs.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin 5/7 with 12 pts 1 rebounds, 2 tos 1pf

  • Rick Johnson

    Parsons just slipped Kobe so easily

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The Linsanity – Knicks type or Linsanity-Jeremy Lin type?

  • livyrlife

    ok. thanks. stepped out just a few seconds then it happened

  • cheapjing

    what is wrong with my internet, every time right before lin score, the screen froze. i missed all his field goals

  • Bearness

    He’s almost on pace to do that. Hope he doesn’t slow down.

  • Promo Sports World

    Cheers my friend

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    My hat off off to Kobe, he’s team ball so far

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Young is guarding Dirk?!?! Why?!?!

  • sport

    Except for his bad pass could’ve been a wide open shot for Lin or Nick Young =/

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Bearness

    He better. His shots are off.

  • Brent Yen

    LAL went small?

  • livyrlife

    Jeremy’s 3fg% is 45.16% YAY O/

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Snapshot

  • cheapjing

    thanks

  • Rick Johnson

    Who was Kobe passing to? Threw between Lin and Swaggy

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Went smaller

  • Brent Yen

    Vips on the court side seats.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Got it from the someone on vs R game. Quite frustrating with nbaonlinetv.

  • Riddick

    Come on Lin…quit deferring to Bryant. Get the score closer…then go Bryant mode.

  • JoeTeam

    He’s not used to that move …

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hehe the Lakers bigs are just so bad on defense, Kobe and Jeremy has to switch defending Dirk.

  • sport

    Scott needs to stick with this lineup it’s working!! Nick Young, JLin, and Kobe all 3 scoring threats spread the floor the best!

  • Alaingrvis

    coach went small

  • Alaingrvis

    there was no bigs in but boozer

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Lakers 59 vs Mavs 68 half time. JLin stat remains the same. Oops wrong. He has 5/7 with 12 pts with 2 rebounds, 1 asts, 2 tos

  • JoeTeam

    he was moving v fast on attack. Good quarter. BS should use him as much as he can 2nd half.

  • Brent Yen

    Actually if without that 6pt collapse..this game is pretty even. The more LAL trys to defend. The more they will lose

  • Alaingrvis

    hill correction

  • Promo Sports World

    Defense wow

  • sport

    All I’m asking is for them to not give wide open shots! Mavs will miss shots eventually.

  • livyrlife

    hopefully. usually he gets to close the game.

  • CaliUSMC

    Nelson trying to battle Lin. He will lose!

  • JoeTeam

    never hurts to watch a shootout

  • Brent Yen

    Yep..

  • Brent Yen

    true

  • Rick Johnson

    Who’s this Nelson? Never heard of him before, thought he was a scrub but he’s giving Lin a handful.

  • Michael

    I thought my dementia was kicking in when you said Boozer 😛

  • Brent Yen

    He is doing pretty good actually. LOL

  • sport

    shh….Let him guard Lin so Linsanity can break out tonight 😛

  • JoeTeam

    it’s been intense. Lin is ahead by far, except for the long pullup3 by JN.

  • MoominFloren

    the defense is…….young on dirk, lin on dirk…

  • Alaingrvis

    he was off on three all year then all of a sudden lol

  • Alaingrvis

    he was with dwight in orlando. he is a great three shooter. ell he was he is now old

  • Michael

    Happens to a lot of players when they go to Dallas don’t you think?

  • JoeTeam

    Are you are referring to his non-lin minutes?

  • cali7

    Points in the paint … again. Boozer leaving dirk to defend jj…

  • sport

    Lin is scoring off dribble shots finally I don’t even care if he misses 10 shots just keep shooting and not be passive my goodness!! They need his scoring against the Mavs, this isn’t the Grizz where they can just grind it out!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Brent Yen

    Just in general..

  • khomphuong2

  • Brent Yen

    Like Brea

  • JoeTeam

    I could feel him getting HAM mad!

  • JoeTeam

    I didn’t want to read that lol.

  • BuzzerBeater

    He’s a good shooter, but this season he’s averaging 6 points I think so he shouldnt even have 10 now lol Jeremy pls XD

  • JC

    Lin took 7 shots already, does he see more aggressive to score tonight ?

  • sws94

    Lin just has to look to score. He looks like the guy we love to follow and root for tonight.

  • Brent Yen

    He always is the guy I love to follow and root for!

  • sws94

    Yes. It seems because Swaggy and Kobe are cold, though. If they were hitting I wonder how much he’d be shooting.

  • Riddick

    I’d kind of would like to see Lin there next season…smart coach & he’d do great w/Tyson-Dirk

  • JoeTeam

    I think he will today. Plenty of time left.

  • BuzzerBeater

    great sign! that’s how it should be every game.

  • CaliUSMC

    He picks his spots. Seems to me that he always comes out aggressive at the start of the game. If he makes the first few it tends to carry over to the second half. If he doesn’t he goes in full defer mode.

  • Alaingrvis

    tyson having no impact on lin. the thing about lin plays bad against shot blockers is over. he has to over come these up and downs probably due to facing top teams early while learning a new system

  • JoeTeam

    true love, you.

  • Brent Yen

    Tyson is not that kind of the rim protector.

  • sws94

    He’s using his mid-range. He’s using pick and pop. He didn’t let the early airball bother him. He only took it to the rim once.

  • JoeTeam

    except BS stopped Linsanity with his fixed rotations watching the points spread go up.

  • real-dsb

    you mean 7 pt?

  • Rick Johnson

    In first quarter Nelson was getting past Lin and penetrating. But then so was Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    yes he is but lin isn’t attacking him. he drives when tyson isn’t there or the reverse using the rim to block tyson. he is a smarter player. with a three shot

  • Briiick

    Kobe is playing the point tonight and Lin is playing a SG like Nash used to play beside Kobe.
    I actually like it ! Kobe is taking less shots which boosts the moral of the whole team.

  • JC

    I really like Lin to be linsanity lin who is the first scoring option, the game just seems so much fun when he taking over it, but I would still love to follow him even if he is going to be fisher type pg.

  • Alaingrvis

    mostly three

  • Michael

    Have to give props to Hill going really hard on the offensive boards 2 against 1.

  • JoeTeam

    coaches, I want 2nd half adjustments …. what say you? I say rest Lin only 4 mins.

  • livyrlife

    me me me me, u u u and many other too

  • Brent Yen

    No he is not. Tyson is basically (Ibaka + Asik)/2.2 type of player.

  • Rick Johnson

    Nice seeing Kobe screen Parsons to get Lin a clean 3pt shot.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • real-dsb

    he’s pretty decent, was an all-star one year

  • bolero

    good to see you here

  • bolero

    he’s pissed

  • Michael

    So he is ‘The mean version’ of Ibaka and Asiks.

  • JoeTeam

    I guess I admit it. Don’t tell my family, I’m supposed to be resting from a tough week right now.

  • 311

    They should keep running that until it stops working. Lin 2/2 from behind the arc.

  • Riddick

    I’m not counting on it. Better chance of a win if Lin comes out blazing in the next half.

  • Brent Yen

    Meaning he is only a Ibake/2.2 version of a Ibaka….

  • JoeTeam

    I did not want to read that, lol.

  • real-dsb

    In Dallas, the high % shooter takes the most shots (Dirk at 53% fg). In LAL, the low % shooter takes the most shots (Kobe at 39% fg and sinking)

  • Brent Yen

    This is resting….

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wow Tyson can bake? #notsorry

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • JoeTeam

    that’s the spread LAL have to overcome then. Sacrebleu!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    His hands will get hot in the 2nd half…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s the best shooter of the team, my problem is he played too much in the first half especially this early of the season.

  • JoeTeam

    zzzz …

  • Brent Yen

    It is @disqus_HmSLGZ4iV2:disqus who should be sleeping

  • 311

    Didn’t Dwight refer to Lin as Jameer before when comparing Houston teammates to Orlando?

  • dons

    Price on target to attain his expected PTS/game average for 2015, i.e. 2 (TWO!)

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s so bad and I feel bad for him.

  • sport

    Can he average 0 points for the season? Will that be a worst record in NBA history?

  • Brent Yen

    Hill made a pass!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    How do you do Mr. Singapore?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Shut up!!! That’s NOT an offensive!!!

  • Michael

    Does Boozer have a post game?

  • Brent Yen

    BS call

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They F the asina guy again.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    post game interview? I think he does.oh wait….

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW That is bogus foul! Call out that ref!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sport

    That was not an offense foul! Ellis was the one charging at Lin when he was in the air!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Chandler Parsons should grow some hair. He’s starting to look like a younger version of Carlisle.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    SMH.

  • Brent Yen

    The normal shooting will have that sway effect. Refs are just abusing Lin

  • JoeTeam

    you know why …

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe common again?

  • Brent Yen

    ball watching Kobe

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin has to play against the Mavericks, refs and Scott.

  • cheapjing

    your link is very good

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe not doing good job at guarding Parsons.

  • JoeTeam

    jeremy, it’s a shootout. Get it done!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So second half and the Mavs are going to Parsons…

  • Brent Yen

    See…Parsons’ sway is much larger. No call

  • Rick Johnson

    Boozer not doing a good job at guarding Dirk. Try Davis on him

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Refs don’t mess with Rick Carlisle look-alike.

  • sport

    I agree Boozer sucks guarding Dirk bench him for Davis please!!

  • occupatio

    kobe getting worked by parsons, esp off the ball

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes even his own teammates.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Carlisle: Your job is to stay in front of THIS GUY.

    Carlisle, name WHO that guy is…

  • sport

    Mavs are sharing the ball with Dirk making some nice passes to Parsons for his cuts!

  • Brent Yen

    MAV almost reversed the ball to the weak side ASAP unless it was Dirk while LAL just took a shot.

  • Michael

    If you are going to call that a kick on Lin then you should make the same call on Wade every time #Double standard NBA refs

  • MoominFloren

    too big for him

  • Rick Johnson

    Defensive weak spots, Kobe and Boozer right now.

  • sport

    More like too fast for him and it’s Parsons we’re talking about here. He just makes his cuts in front of Kobe like it’s nothing.

  • occupatio

    put in davis pls

  • Brent Yen

    Oh well…

  • JoeTeam

    Ok, right about now, Lin has to give himself permission to take over else others won’t get into game. He is the only threat on the floor. He has to hold it until his man is 100% open to the basket.

  • Brent Yen

    you showed up!

  • MoominFloren

    right

  • dons

    Peaked 5 years ago! BS doesn’t read the stats.

  • CaliUSMC

    CP is owning Kobe

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe is ball watching in a zone…..even worse

  • roberlin

    Dallas playing spurs ball.

  • occupatio

    great D by lin!

  • JoeTeam

    I swear, JLin missed that 3 because he was adjusting for the ref call coming.

  • Rick Johnson

    Bet Coach Miller won’t mention it though it’s obvious.

  • dons

    Why does Lin have to guard two guys on the perimeter? Where’s the team?

  • Brent Yen

    someone is ball watching

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Watching the Mavs

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sit Kobe now let him rest

  • roberlin

    was that a stop and pop shot? lol.

  • dons

    I see this so often in games, Lin running from one shooter on the perimeter, to another, then to a third!

  • Brent Yen

    Need a TO….MAVs are too good at attacking the zone.

  • Riddick

    He has to compensate for how bad this team really is…both O & D.

  • sport

    Just glad it went in lol.

  • Brent Yen

    well……we will take it.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe needs rest for 4q. He’s struggle.

  • roberlin

    Really nice passing by the Mavericks.

  • occupatio

    kobe is making me mad

  • Alaingrvis

    defense lapses again

  • Love Lin

    Yes! Nice ball movement..:) This is what the Lakers gotta learn.

  • Brent Yen

    OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LIN-PRICE line up…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep he is hurting Lakers.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin turning SG

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Spin!!!!

  • dons

    2 pts guy back in, i.e. 2 pt/game

  • Michael

    The P-Lin-ston offense.

  • Love Lin

    Wowww.. was fadeaway shot by Lin? Nice!

  • MoominFloren

    Nice shoot

  • Brent Yen

    No..

  • roberlin

    I think the game is over.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    WTF Who guards CParsons?

  • Brent Yen

    You think?

  • sport

    Was Lin looking for a fake or shot? He should’ve just shot it!

  • JoeTeam

    let’s watch Lin stat pad.

  • roberlin

    it was a foul.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It was over long time ago.

  • dons

    Warriors vs Utah starts in 15 min …

  • sport

    Kobe.

  • occupatio

    he should have shot it tho

  • Brent Yen

    Really? M…OK

  • roberlin

    I thought they had a chance of beating the spread. Now, I don’t know.

  • JoeTeam

    the sacrebleu play.

  • Brent Yen

    He tried a Harden or Wade

  • occupatio

    always that problem.

  • Rick Johnson

    Jeremy should know refs are blind when he gets fouled.

  • Alaingrvis

    he needs to shoot that even if it misses but yea the defense is crap today and dallas is the best offense in the nba

  • CaliUSMC

    Kobe is 4/18. And playing terrible D. He’s why we lost.

  • roberlin

    that 7 point play was the game. I called it. Lol.

  • occupatio

    byron never yanks him. smh

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin beats my voting 17/7!!!!!!!!! You are almost there!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    I would argue Price is a big help.

  • Michael

    Plus the Mavs are a really good team.

  • sport

    Can Lin just go for some back to back 3s to bring the team back from the dead?

  • Alaingrvis

    dallas 50 percent from three

  • Brent Yen

    Need some sets for him

  • JoeTeam

    yes!

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya, Kobe and Boozer were defensive liabilities and weren’t giving much offense. Will never hear Coach Miller be objective and say anything negative about Kobe though.

  • JoeTeam

    need the refs to allow play.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Some J-Ed PnR could have saved this team.

  • Alaingrvis

    we can’t defend them

  • occupatio

    on the positive side, opponents pushing lin to left and he is happy to go that way now

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin was wide open

  • Promo Sports World

    So he played well and Kobe shot them out of the game

  • roberlin

    Parsons playing well when no one is guarding him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Linwas wide open agian

  • JoeTeam

    that was fast … NY regressed to the mean in 2 games.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is mad…someone messed up

  • JoeTeam

    LWO

  • sport

    OK why is 0 points Price in right now?!!

  • Brent Yen

    For the speed of MAV

  • Michael

    He should be.

  • Brent Yen

    See how quickly Lin revered the ball. a beauty

  • Riddick

    Yup, noCoach lost another one. Should start a prediction of: When will Scott start making game adjustments? .

  • BobbyH

    Kobe is in Kobe mode to get points as he deems the game is lost.

  • Alaingrvis

    they are making all there threes

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is in IDGAF mode

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Barea’s face irritates me. Guy’s just lucky he got those assists because he’s playing with good bigs.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Wonderful JLin!!!!!!!!! You make it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go go go!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    NBA ref “Asian don’t belong here”

  • occupatio

    more cases of refs hating on lin

  • Alaingrvis

    it wasn’t on him

  • sport

    I don’t care if they’re down 26, it’s not over till the fat lady sings! Lin is finally shooting a will and can will this team for a come back win!!

  • occupatio

    oh? who did it get called on before running over lin?

  • Brent Yen

    DAVIS

  • roberlin

    what’s Lin’s stat line now?

  • JoeTeam

    i like your attitude! not ashamed to read it too.

  • Skwo

    Lin has been wide open at the three point line. The best three point shooter on the team yet they don’t make an effort to give him those shots. Sigh.

  • occupatio

    8 for 11. 2 for 3 from 3. 18 pts

  • Alaingrvis

    18 5 4

  • Alaingrvis

    points assist rebounds

  • sport

    That’s the Lin we’ve all been waiting for! He should play like IDGAF every single game from now on!!! I think that Nick Swagger is rubbing off on him!

  • Brent Yen

    The biggest mistake is to call zone D and have a guy ball watching.

  • 311

    Stu was saying that Davis’ foul came first so it negated Jeremy’s blocking foul.

  • JC

    Where’s the defense?

  • roberlin

    nice. It’s close to my wishful thinking prediction of 21 and 8. Lol.

  • BobbyH

    The guy that can not be named.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • CaliUSMC

    Kobe is shooting 38% for the season. It’s about to be even lower..

  • MoominFloren

    i miss clarkson now….at least he can keep sticking his man…so many open looks for mav

  • JoeTeam

    the guy that can not be named me.

  • Alaingrvis

    at rox stadium. they for got the pack it with them

  • roberlin

    Mavs look really good. I hope they crush the Rockets tomorrow.

  • Brent Yen

    Price no block out to lose the 1st buket

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe trying to be the team high scorer. He should concentrate on beating Dallas rather than his own teammate. He will just waste all their possessions and keep chucking

  • sport

    Third stringers in?! Scott giving up already?! 🙁

  • roberlin

    I wonder if the starters will come back in.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is done. WTH

  • occupatio

    sacre looks so lost.

    OH! what is this — I got the ball !

  • Brent Yen

    No

  • dons

    I say let Lin play and get practice scoring, i.e. 30 pts, and cohesion with second unit w/o price. Only played 26 min, he’s young.

  • Bearness

    Damn, BS won’t even let him stat pad.

  • occupatio

    his TS% just exploded from tonight

  • Brent Yen

    Scott can not do that

  • sport

    Sacre is the reason the game got out of hand and I blame Scott for playing Price so much the 0 points 0 rebs and 0 assists Point Guard!!! Clarkson comes in facing the 2nd unit of Mavs and actually does something on offense and draws a foul!!! Can Mitch just waive Price already!

  • occupatio

    i hate stupid lakers settling for jump shots all day. so summer league

  • John Lee

    He gave up twelve games ago.

  • Riddick

    Scott doesn’t believe in Lin 4Q clutchness…so he’s given up.

  • dons

    agreed, bottom 5 is objective, i.e. top 5 draft pick.

  • Rick Johnson

    When we ever going to see Lin play with no Kobe, no Price with Davis and with Swaggy? That will show what Lin can do but that Lineup is non-existent.

  • Brent Yen

    No…what are you talking about. SL is better

  • occupatio

    price isnt so bad. he is a decent perimeter defender

  • Alaingrvis

    dirt beasted on boozer and parsons on kobe. also the bigs hd zero blocks. the guards ran at them and either got a foul or a shot lol or both

  • occupatio

    im sorry. that was unfair to SL

  • Alaingrvis

    no won’t mean the same

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • sport

    Price can’t even defend Pat Bev the worst Starting PG in the League!! Pat Bev got 8 points off of Price last game. Oh need I mention 0 SHOT Attempts for Price?!! The only points Price got on his stat sheet this game is 2 and that’s 2 fouls!!!!

  • occupatio

    hrm should i turn off the TV now?

  • Riddick

    On his next team?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Laker players are still too greedy to give up shot for open man. BS has no control because he’s not acting as a coach.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL I guess

  • occupatio

    their scrubs are better than our scrubs. sadness

  • Riddick

    I’m done…it was lost from the beginning. smh

  • CaliUSMC

    Atleast Lin is the high scorer on Lakers. I’ll take it.

  • Alaingrvis

    that had nothing to do for why the y lost. it was as always the defense. dallas is the best offense in the nba. they had open threes and made them. a lot of them

  • Brent Yen

    we were playing 1 on 5. They actually run sets.

  • occupatio

    yeah. i wasnt pinning the game on that. just saying, hate seeing that.

    lakers perimeter rotations to cover 3 have always been weak

  • BobbyH

    I am happy with Lin 18 points. 3s, reverse layup, mid ranges, jumpers. That’s Lin we know. Aggressive, attack, and of course assertive. Just that this team is still LONG LONG LONG way to go.

  • John Lee

    Does anyone know whether BS guaranteed four years, or last year team option?

    Trying to do math, how much it’ll cost Lakers to fire him.

  • occupatio

    SL

  • CaliUSMC

    Wish Horry was on today. He would prob put Kobe on blast.

  • Brent Yen

    NONONO…LOL

  • BuzzerBeater

    What on earth happened! I just left to cut my hair and its a total blowout, oh well at least Jeremy’s getting his points I see, hehe.

  • Illbe

    Could it be they just follow their team leader’s way?…hmmm

  • occupatio

    byron says he doesnt worry about the offense…

  • sport

    Lakers can fire a coach whenever they want, money isn’t even an issue! They fire their last coach after 5 games! I think BS has had enough losses for Lakers to kick him to the curb!

  • Alaingrvis

    hill can’t be getting manhandled by guards like that. how many times did a guard run at rum and get points or free throws.

  • occupatio

    okay. ive officially turned off the game. well, that was fun until the blowout

  • dons

    No LIN, switching now to Warriors (8-2) to Utah (5-7), could be a good scrimmage.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s so true too. They all want to build up their resume.

  • Brent Yen

    Maybe I should have buy a tkt and go to watch in person. Maybe I could jinx MAVs a bit. Too late now.

  • John Lee

    We should ban haircuts during game time.

  • Alaingrvis

    someone was always missing. like a guy went to the bathroom lol

  • Barry Allen
  • roberlin

    why isn’t Lin shooting the ball? So what if he’s on the bench. He needs to shoot the ball!

  • Brent Yen

    He has to shoot from the tunnel….

  • Riddick

    It doesn’t look like he cares about the defense either.

  • sport

    This team with starters sharing the ball and Lin being assertive but the 2nd unit along with Price and Sacre just killed them!!

  • roberlin

    lol.

  • Brent Yen
  • GoodDayLA

    lucky i did not watch this game. based on the box score and watching Kobe play for over 20 years now (high school too), I know what happened tonight.

    The Lakers will 100% not make the playoffs unless Kobe gets hurt for the entire season within the next 5 games. Kobe was phenomenal last game. But tonight, he probably needed to let Lin and others do their thing, but Kobe being the eogmaniac could not let go and ruined a winnable game by chucking 6 for 22.

    I don’t even need to watch to know what happened. It is that predictable.

  • Alaingrvis

    hahahahaha omg thats hilarious

  • occupatio

    he does. but he always gives kobe a pass, no matter how much he gambles or ball watches or doesnt bother closing out. double standard for D.

  • Brent Yen

    I did not know you are a Kobe expert. LOL

  • Guest

    lol. Hope you get a good hair cut! At least that will put you in a good mood than watching the game.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin had 6pts /4asts / 2to’s in 3rd quarter. Could of finished with 24/8 oh well

  • sws94

    If this game was competitive, Lin could have gotten to 25. But it was a 3rd quarter defensive meltdown. Kobe’s defense was beyond horrible.

  • occupatio

    he who cant be named…

  • JoeTeam

    ever read those product reviews online?

  • BobbyH

    How many blow-out games so far? 4 out of 13?

  • occupatio

    lmao!

  • sws94

    Shoot from his house.

  • Brent Yen

    I though 6-7?

  • Brent Yen

    oooooops

  • Illbe

    this one might take the cake

  • sport

    did you even look at the score board? Kobe didn’t chuck shots it was the second unit that killed them! Lin played the best I’ve seen this game. He got mad and just said FK it and made for the first time this season back to back off dribble 2s and 3s! Sacre did stupid back to back inbound passes to Kobe to give 7 free points in 5 seconds to Mavs! Then Mavs started hitt their 3s and Parsons got going cutting to the basket several times against Kobe!

  • occupatio

    there must be some unspoken pact with byron and kobe, cuz kobe was obviously a net negative on BOTH ends of the floor yet there he is.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    yea 4

  • roberlin

    he’s a supah star.

  • Brent Yen

    Well…..most ppl guessing it is because of money and TWC.

  • BobbyH

    Defense is still an issue. 67 points allowed in half time is horrible.

  • JoeTeam

    he is … well, you know.

  • dons

    just -29, still adding to most shots missed.

  • Brent Yen

    Ellinton really moves great off the ball.

  • Brent Yen

    Clarkson is so tunnel visioned…

  • CaliUSMC

    I think you’re the only one still watching the game

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yeah I want to see how I look like 10 yrs from now.

  • BuzzerBeater

    It actually looks like crap cuz I did it myself lol

  • occupatio

    he is pure SL

  • Brent Yen

    Well…I live in Dallas…what can I do?

  • roberlin

    voldemort?

  • CaliUSMC

    Watch Shark Tank

  • occupatio

    NOOOOO

  • cheapjing

    move to LA

  • Brent Yen

    Sacre got good skillset actually. He just needs to be more physical

  • CaliUSMC

    lol

  • sport

    I’m not even mad at the Lakers this game they played the right way, shared the ball, Lin finally said IDGAF and made off dribble back to back shots and 3s! He was the closest to Linsanity Lin I’ve seen. This loss was on Scott and his bad substitution with Price and 2nd unit!! After this 0,0,0 back to back origin point game by Price can Scott finally play Clarkson as back up over that scrub?!

  • Alaingrvis

    im not mad to be honest these big and the team really struggle against quick up tempo three shooting teams. lol id bet last years lakers could give these laker a run for their money. we are too slow against those type of teams

  • John Lee

    Yes, I was a BS apologist and I’m saying get rid of him.

  • GoodDayLA

    I disagree with almost all of your basketball analysis.

  • occupatio

    lin looked really comfortable out there tonight. saw the floor well, and was very composed and made the right decisions.

  • CaliUSMC

    Worthy: some of the lakers aren’t having good shooting nights.

    How about you say KOBE- you $@@#$@

  • Brent Yen

    LOL com’on….be nice.

  • John Lee

    No one.

  • Brent Yen

    Single coverage.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol I’m always right so he gets angry he can’t be as knowledgable

  • GoodDayLA

    ALain is like Byron Scott.

    To me, I think the Lakers lost because KObe chuck 6-22 THROUGH 3 QUARTERS and probably have a ton of selfish play on offense.

    Blame the bad defense, but the offense is just as broken if not more broken than the bad defense.

  • occupatio

    haha

  • Barry Allen

    Kobe Bryant has a 37.8% FG% this season. 3rd worst among shooting guards this season.

    …..

  • roberlin

    what are they saying about Lin?

  • occupatio

    makes a world of difference, unfortunately

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! I want to know what did they say about Lin now?

  • CaliUSMC

    I dunno, nothing. I just turned it on again and muted. Want to see what these clowns say during post game.

  • sport

    Yes that’s why I said this was the closest to Linsanity Lin I’ve seen this season so far! I think it’s the Swaggy Effect. Swaggy’s happy and no hesitation shooting probably reminded Lin of what he used to be like. Lin can learn from Swaggy where he can make mistakes and do crazy circus shots that miss or go in like it’s nobodies’ business! Just have fun shooting for once and stop worrying about getting his teammates open!! They will get open when he gets going and draws defenders.

  • Alaingrvis

    then write what you think then. its one thing to disagree an idiot can do that its another to debate your ideas

  • GoodDayLA

    Honestly, I’m not to sure of my own basketball ability, but I would love to play you at basketball one day. I would LOVE IT.

  • khomphuong2

    Jeremy Lin is now 48% FG%, 43.8% 3P%, 90.7% FT% for the season.— Jean-Paul Valley (@JeanPaulValley8) November 22, 2014

  • Brent Yen

    why?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hehe honestly you never really agreed with anyone, especially those not seething against Kobe or don’t consider the Lakers are tanking.

  • Rick Johnson

    Bill McDonald saying Lin needs to be more consistent and score like this more consistently.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol I’m black soooo

  • MoominFloren

    can Mav make 140? or can lakers reach 100?

  • occupatio

    he who can’t be named. serious!

  • CaliUSMC

    All he has to do is start avging 15pts.

  • Brent Yen

    Well…I am thinking about 170

  • CaliUSMC

    I agree.

  • Alaingrvis

    idk he need to feel like a man taking on a giant only to get smashed

  • MoominFloren

    135 now..

  • cheapjing

    lin was elite today

  • occupatio

    well, remember the beginning of last season? his scoring efficiency was off the charts then it came down, fast.

  • Brent Yen

    When you are comfortable. your FG% is higher. Brea is showing there.

  • Riddick

    Yup, that’s why this game was lost…Lin hasn’t been consistent. What a billBS.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea would be great numbers

  • sport

    It’s a long season, I’m shooting for 18/20+ points average for the season!

  • GoodDayLA

    because he’d either destroy me or I’d destroy him. We think completely opposite.

  • 7iger

    Just tune in and shock by the score LOL

  • CaliUSMC

    hmm no double double tonight. might opt for the new sriracha burger

  • GoodDayLA

    haha talk about stereotypes

  • Alaingrvis

    like be destroyed I’m very athletic and in shape

  • Rick Johnson

    Well on the bright side maybe Carlisle and Cuban see that Lin is the best Laker and will try to sign him next year. Imagine Lin back with the two Chandlers?

  • Skwo

    Team high scorer on 50% less shots than Kobe. I like it.

  • Brent Yen

    BTW…is that mile high burger good?

  • JoeTeam

    garbage time all of 4th quarter – priceless!

  • sport

    I agree Lin needs to shoot like that every game say IDGAF! What’s the point of getting your scrub teammates open when they 1. don’t appreciate it 2. bricks their shots anyway! When the other team is shooting Lights Out he can’t call plays and wait for his slow teammates to move just for a 2 pointer hit or miss.

  • GoodDayLA

    on the contrary, I agree with many people. Khuang, webattorney, Brent Yen, and many others. I agree completely with them almost all the time.

  • Alaingrvis

    I’m joking obviously but hey just saying lol wink wink. little lebrun over here lol

  • blubell

    But Jeremy has good stats 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    Wish it was Priceless. There is too much Price.

  • occupatio

    if this were the rockets in a blowout, you know that harden would be playing all of garbage time

  • 7iger

    Well, at least he doing good.

  • BobbyH

    PnR+R?

  • JoeTeam

    I knew there was a pun in there somewhere … lol.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Especially when they rip Kobe?

  • Brent Yen

    I don know what that set called. The one Dallas ran. One cross screen and one down screen. So simple and deadily

  • GoodDayLA

    huh?

  • occupatio

    someone tell byron that if kobe’s goal is to surpass MJ in total pts, then kobe should be in the game now when IT DOESNT MATTER. instead of playing him all day when it does matter

  • JoeTeam

    simple to read and adjust?

  • Alaingrvis

    defense

  • bolero

    Price no offense at all. Clarkson at least better.

  • Barry Allen
  • GoodDayLA

    ALain, sadly you think like Byron Scott.

    To me, I think the Lakers lost because KObe chuck 6-22 THROUGH 3 QUARTERS and probably have a ton of selfish play on offense.

    Blame the bad defense, but the offense is just as broken if not more broken than the bad defense.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    heh?

  • 7iger

    They should tell Kobe that too, oh wait, he is constantly jack up shots and Iso.

  • Alaingrvis

    he gives us nothing

  • occupatio

    ronnie is expected to create shots when he is on a unit with no playmaker. that’s on byron, not price.

  • Riddick

    That’s what I’ve been thinking since end of last season. I seriously think Cuban may go after Lin.

  • Brent Yen

    A PF start at the block. He can either pick to use the down screen or the cross screen. Once he picked one, the 2 screener screen each other.

  • GoodDayLA

    Kobe is king of LA. The rules do not apply.

  • BobbyH

    How about Nelson and Ellis?

  • Briiick

    “Man has got to know his limitation”—-
    I hope Kobe takes less than 5 shots a quarter and turns
    into more of a facilitator.

  • Brent Yen

    No..he gave you 26.5% of FG%

  • 311

    Because he got injured though.

  • GoodDayLA

    Alain is probably the biggest Kobe apologist on this site. So maybe.

  • JoeTeam

    what I meant was, can BS easily adjust to your read? you know … tweet him now hehe.

  • roberlin

    he’s going to give nothing soon when he gets cut, lol

  • 7iger

    Don’t really like the other Chandler but with good coach it might be good.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Let Alain refute that, then.

  • Alaingrvis

    we have to sign a better back up honestly

  • sport

    Kobe should take notes from what Dirk did this game! Dirk has shoot alright but he made many great assists threading the needle with Parsons! Mavs playing very great teamball, they can certainly go far in the playoffs if they can beat the Spurs.

  • CJSHYY

    Did you guys see Lin hug anyone after the game?!

  • Brent Yen

    Well….not sure…LOL

  • occupatio

    i have zero expectations for price’s performance so i am never disappointed by him.

  • 311
  • GoodDayLA

    ok so if they play good defense, and the offense still stinks, it’s possible they are still in the game, but the broken offense won’t lead them to any victories and will be ugly as heck to watch. Nobody pays money to watch the boring Chicago Bulls without Rose.

  • Alaingrvis

    thanks

  • Barry Allen

    thanks.

  • blubell
  • Dorothy

    No, Lin is not going back to TX

  • 7iger

    Don’t know if I should be happy or sad.

  • blubell

    Signature reverse lay-up 🙂
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEYJoECcWTk

  • GoodDayLA

    What makes Kobe great is his inability to process he is mortal. He thinks he is special and thus has had a spectacular career. He will never come around.

    He will go down in flames before he concedes he is a mere basketball mortal.

  • Alaingrvis

    man if they kept it close lin could of had 30 easy

  • occupatio

    price is a limited player. he is expected to do more than he is capable of by scott. is that price’s fault or scott’s?

  • Brent Yen

    Highlights without lin at all. WTH TWCSN?

  • 7iger

    I put it on Scott I don’t blame Price a bit.

  • bolero

    yup. they ignored him..

  • CaliUSMC

    I was going tosay the samething

  • Brent Yen

    So I guess Scott is at a level that he can out coach McHale. ANd Rick can out coach Scott.

  • CJSHYY

    Then show who? Kobe only?

  • Brent Yen

    They showed Parsons more than they showed Lin

  • GoodDayLA

    Alain, my issue with you is I always substantively checkmate all your arguments and then you either fail to respond or respond with a nonsensical argument that leads me to believe your basketball IQ is much lower than most typical Lin fans on this site.

    I actually believe that means you are probably a phenomenal basketball player in real life because of the way you think. The game must come easy for you.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So if we’ll put it in numbers, will it be:

    1.
    2.
    3. Carlisle
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8. Byron Scott
    9.
    10.Kevin McHale

  • CJSHYY

    Why CP?! Oh! He was the one who guarded Kobe? LOL!

  • Brent Yen

    Is 10 the max number?

  • sport

    Create Shots? Dude can’t even create shots for himself!! Can Mitch just wave Price so Scott is forced to use Clarkson as backup!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    TW depends on local fans. Praising lIn might not be good for business

  • GoodDayLA

    he did coach very well in Houston. I liked his decisions on substitutions.

  • Brent Yen

    MIller is BSing. You put a forearm on Dirk, you get called every time. He is a entertainer.

  • CaliUSMC

    1
    2.
    3.Carlisle
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    29.Byron Scott
    30.Kevin Mchale

  • 311

    And Bill McDonald kept emphasizing that Jeremy had a good game…offensively.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s from TX?!

  • GoodDayLA

    Miller is an unlikeable clown.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes he did

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Let’s just say, top 10 coaches in the league.

  • GoodDayLA

    He is paid to put Kobe in a position to shine. I understand why this team stinks. That’s really on Laker management, not Scott.

  • CJSHYY

    Miller is a clown indeed. smh!

  • sport

    Is this top 10 worst Coaches or overall in the league? lol

  • Brent Yen

    No….LA feed

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Top 10 best coaches

  • blubell

    yeah, that irked me…

  • occupatio

    who are you?

  • MoominFloren

    His BS level is the same as BS

  • roberlin

    Where’s Khuang? He predicted that there was a 99% Lin would have a bad game, while I predicted that there was a 70% chance that Lin would have a good game. I was right! 😀

  • Brent Yen

    so confusing, yet so clear. LOL

  • sport

    More of CP cause Mavs won. If Lakers won it’d probably be different.

  • GoodDayLA

    I’m not sure how much say the Lakers management has over TWC. I need to figure it out.

  • blubell

    They’re avoiding Kobe’s bad game too.

  • Alaingrvis

    what did he say

  • Brent Yen

    It could go either.

  • CJSHYY

    Did he say anything bad about Lin? What about Young their saver for the team?

  • Brent Yen

    He said you have to let Dirk work. Take out his air space, put a forearm to block him out.

  • MomentousPetey

    McHale is top 10?

  • occupatio

    see yall later. i’ll pop in later when the highlight vid is probably done hehe

  • Brent Yen

    True.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Fine!

    8. Byron Scott
    27. McHale

  • Alaingrvis

    lol easier said then done.

  • Brent Yen

    Now Miller talking about the effort. Just man up and say the name..

  • Brent Yen

    He probably does not know who Dirk is

  • GoodDayLA

    I’m not athletic or in shape. So….

  • MomentousPetey

    The hate is still very strong with a lot of these pundants! F them!

  • MomentousPetey

    Like catering to haters?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Tide turned rather easily for Miller. He went from being a celebrated analyst to one of the most hated.

    That’s what being wishy-washy does to you.

  • Brent Yen

    Again…that stay in front of your man BS

  • GoodDayLA

    I have never liked him. Never turned

  • CaliUSMC

    Much better

  • Alaingrvis

    hall of fame unstoppable fade away. 7 footer who can shoot. he is impossible to guard but parsons isn’t

  • GoodDayLA

    who employs TWC employees? Lakers management or TWC? Forgot who owns TWC, I will look it up

  • John Lee

    IJ impostor!

  • Riddick

    He didn’t out coach Mc by much, but got out coached by Carlisle disgracefully.

  • 311

    Nothing bad about Jeremy that I can remember. Just said something about Jeremy keeps getting fouls called against him (when he tries to draw charges).

    I forget the exact words he said about Young but something like he had a “not bad game” at 2/7 from the field…smh.

  • GoodDayLA

    OK HERE FROM WIKIPEDIA:

    TWC —> with the Los Angeles Lakers
    maintaining editorial control over the content, including team-assigned
    reporters and anchors, as well as team-related programming.[1]

  • GoodDayLA

    LAKERS CONTROL WHO REPORTERS ARE AND WHAT THEY SAY

  • Brent Yen

    But stilll money is from TWC, right>?

  • Alaingrvis

    had nothing to do with that. boozer was blasted on by dirt which is expected. so was hill. but the threes and hill being challenged in the paint by guards and losing everytime was ridiculous. kobe was blasted on by parsons today. had 4 points with 2 minutes left in the 2nd then boom.sacre ohh sacre lol ill just ignore you

  • CaliUSMC

    I think Marcellus on his ESPN show even said that towards the Coach Miller earlier this week.

  • sport

    Dirk is a giant and can get his whenever and now with that stupid rule of leaving space for shooter it makes that much harder to guard him! You can put a hand up and still nothing! Boozer also was slow and couldn’t guard Dirk nor make him miss! Should’ve played Davis more.

  • GoodDayLA

    Although the channels are 100% owned by Time Warner Cable, the Lakers
    have a lot of editorial control, including final cut over “Backstage
    Lakers” and other shows about the franchise. It’s common for local
    sports channels to cede some editorial control to teams, but this
    agreement seems particularly restrictive.

    “The approval rights
    were born out of a desire to be more involved in how our brand is
    portrayed,” said Tim Harris, senior vice president and chief marketing
    officer of the Lakers.

  • CJSHYY

    On what?

  • blubell
  • GoodDayLA

    yes money seems from TWC

  • roberlin

    next game is against denver. winnable.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea he did

  • CaliUSMC

    That he’s pretty much a puppet

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Then I guess that’s who is making ALL decisions.

  • GoodDayLA

    well my point is the Lakers management is OK with Miller saying this stuff. in fact, he could be TOLD to say this by Lakers brass!

  • blubell

    Same can be said of your coaching, BScott…
    https://twitter.com/Mike_Bresnahan/status/536008259828592640

  • Alaingrvis

    refs took away a 2 from lin should have 20

  • CJSHYY

    Not bad game?! Haha! Ya! He’s right bc Young was not as bad as Kobe.. LOL!

  • GoodDayLA

    No read the agreement. Lakers have A LOT of say in the coverage. They can decide who are the reporters!

  • Alaingrvis

    that was clear

  • Brent Yen

    OK…

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    that’s on you, BS.

  • GoodDayLA
  • Alaingrvis

    lol there was a play where dirks man left him to double someone and he made a three. i was like well that was stupid who would do such a thing

  • John Lee

    And the team is coached by? I swear BS reminds me more of McHale with each game.

  • blubell

    Who was the ref? Palmer? lol

  • MomentousPetey

    I don’t care for the burger, I just want the flight attendant chick in the commercial! =)

  • Love Lin

    I just dont get it why Scott keeps Kobe on the floor even when Kobes in cold hand?(sigh) Hes such a stubborn coach. Never figure out his rotation.. Lin played well, but Scott sat him. Its hurt n sad 2 see Cuban proves his comment this blow-out game this time.

  • blubell
  • GoodDayLA

    Basically now I understand that every time “COACH” Miller says Lin stinks or makes fun of his defense, the LA LAkers management is OK with it.

    So until that changes too, the Lakers are not ok with Lin.

    http://articles.latimes.com/2012/sep/26/entertainment/la-et-ct-tw-cable-20120926

  • Alaingrvis

    they all look the same to me lol but refs have done a number on lin this year. more then before like 2 bad calls a game

  • GoodDayLA

    that’s his JOB. Paid millions to make sure Kobe looks good as possible.

  • Love Lin

    same comments after the losing game each time..

  • Brent Yen

    M…

  • CJSHYY

    This coach sucks. smh!

  • Riddick

    Well, he is consistent in deflecting the blame to the players not named Bryant.

  • Alaingrvis

    doubt thats lin is there big promotion guy. his face is always next to kobe on all the previews or billboards

  • GoodDayLA

    the internet is fantastic for information. You can learn alot.

  • blubell

    and himself.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is a kobe fan boy though so you should beware of that

  • GoodDayLA

    read the freaking article. It’s dispositive of the truth.

  • blubell
  • jolno

    For those thinking this is a bad shooting night for Kobe, here is something to ponder on.
    I used Kobe’s shooting data for the 13 games so far.
    His FG% is 0.378 with a standard deviation of 0.107.

    If we take random sample from a normal distribution of mean = 0.378 and sd = 0.107,
    Kobe would shoot below 0.273 (his FG% tonight) in 21 out of 100 games.
    Convert that to the 82 game scale and it’s 17 games out of 82.

    If you combine Kobe’s erratic shooting with his non-existent defense, you get yourself
    a perfect tank general gunning for high draft pick without being so obvious like the
    76ers.

  • GoodDayLA

    your act is getting tired. You spew opinion. I spew FACTS.

    http://articles.latimes.com/2012/sep/26/entertainment/la-et-ct-tw-cable-20120926

  • 311

    I think we should start keeping track of these bad calls, like the missing stats he had in Houston.

  • joyce ward

    Why do you always come on here with your tirades of negativity like it is some self proclaimed truth. Everybody was positive about the game, then you come in here with the attitude”the sky is falling”. You never have anything positive to say….Tonight I don’t want to hear it…smh

  • Love Lin

    His job 2 keep Kobe on the floor no matter how bad he plays. Doesnt he know his desciosn lower the teams morale? (sigh)

  • Riddick

    Wow…that’s Scott’s pg. I kind of feel bad for Price. Scott consistently inserts him into the game to make a difference, yet nada.

  • winner

    I was right also. Others were doubting me as well. So, here’s a high-five fro me. 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    Miller finally admiring Kobe got beat on defense. Blames it on fatigue. I though Scott said he would sit you next to him if you started sagging on defense and getting tired.

  • Alaingrvis

    well it seem they have sway on who’s hired. so you are right has he gone at lin today

  • GoodDayLA

    cold hard truth hurts sometimes. When my mother called me an ugly child, it hurt but then I learned she was just keeping it real!

  • sport

    I don’t have problem with Kobe playing with 2nd unit. I have problem Scott play Price 20 minutes and starting Price int he 2nd quarter! That 2nd unit totally killed the team with Kobe being ineffective!

  • joyce ward

    When does he take responsibility for his non coaching adjustments. He dd the same thing with the Cavs and that is why he got fired.

  • Rick Johnson

    Price doesn’t add anything on either ends of the court. Should have Lin be PG for bench and have Clarkson or Elington as SG. Play Price like 8 – 10 min to give Lin a rest.

  • Brent Yen

    They completely are not talking about Lin right now. I guess we will have to wait for Lin’s interview.

  • khomphuong2

    seriously.. this guy should go back to the other site.

  • GoodDayLA

    I think what’s been proven is TWC dislikes Jeremy Lin but Lakers management thinks fondly of him so far. It will be interesting to see if Lakers brass tells TWC to be more positive or kind towards Lin analysis, and if they don’t whether the Lakers will ask them to remove guys who talk negative of Lin.

  • GoodDayLA

    you were positive about 6-22? Come on Joyce, you always keep it real!

  • Brent Yen

    I just wanna hear what Lin has to say.

  • orLinaryjoe

    BadDayLa?

  • CaliUSMC

    Anyone have a streaming link. My stream died.

  • sws94

    I wanted to believe in Scott. He seems like a decent guy but his coaching is unimpressive. Do a mea culpa and fix the team. His defensive schemes don’t work, his offense isn’t impressive either. He keeps Kobe in too long and doesn’t rotate and manage Lin and Kobe’s minutes well. And winnable games weren’t won by most of his decisions.

  • khomphuong2

    Can mod ban this guy?

  • JoeTeam

    2.56 sigma gets you 95% confidence.
    I agree on tanking, hence a calm Lin with respect time and Price no Davis.

  • GoodDayLA

    The mods can ban me if I’ve said something wrong.

  • Rick Johnson

    Guess when you can’t or allowed to say the obvious truth, Kobe chucking too much and wasting possessions and got schooled on defense by Parsons and Boozer can’t guard Dirk you say something nebulous like this.

  • khomphuong2

    they should

  • Brent Yen

    I am watching it on TV. can not help

  • GoodDayLA

    technically I did not insult anyone here so it would be disengenuous to ban me for talk you dont like hearing.

  • k.smith

    that’s ridiculous. no.

  • GoodDayLA

    But I would be fine if the mods wanted cheery happy talk here and booted me.

  • sws94

    That call was so dumb. I’ve seen a number of amazingly bad calls on Lin from the noncall of the Deandre Jordan mugging of Lin to the ridiculous call in Houston when Ariza didn’t let him catch and land to this idiotic call tonight. If I were Lin I would have 3 Ts by now from those calls alone.

  • sport

    Can Lakers just fire this guy already?! He is so full of SHxT! The starters and Nick Young played great teamball except his substitution and insist on playing Price and only Kobe with 2nd unit!

  • GoodDayLA

    explain what I did that violated site policy?

  • Riddick

    Your mother was wrong. No child is ugly…just some adults. Being considered unattractive on the outside doesn’t mean it has to be the case for the inside. I’ve known some unattractive people that become beautiful when they reveal their inside.

  • Rick Johnson

    Haven’t seen Violet Palmer ref a game yet this season. I check the entire league assignments each time the Lakers play. Wonder if she’s been quietly “retired”. Wouldn’t look good for NBA to fire the first woman ref for incompetence.

  • blubell

    Tell us what he’s saying?

  • GoodDayLA

    you are so kind and deep. Sadly I live in LA where it goes only skin deep.

  • livyrlife

    imho, lal isn’t tanking. they just let kobe shoot till he drops then they will revamp and rebuild.

  • GoodDayLA

    you are very upset haha. You dislike TWC hehe.

  • blubell
  • Riddick

    That wouldn’t be fair. This site is all about treating others as we would want to be treated, so GoodDayLA has the right to post, even if others disagree. He hasn’t done anything that is against what this site represents. Just his opinion, like the rest of us.

  • orLinaryjoe

    No, he can have his say even if we don’t like it.

  • joyce ward

    I do keep it real and i apologized to the site the other night about my tirade about Lin. My friend and a poster on twitter gave me a perspective on lin and it made sense. You seem to look for the negative in everything about the Lakers. I live in LA and i think I have a better perspective on how things run in LA. LA is the entertainment capital of the world, and they have big money. It is always about what you can do for me, but they also care about image. Iakers are all about the business and to tell you the truth, no real media in LA takes TCW seriously.

  • KHuang

    I’m gleefully here!

    I’m thrilled that Lin had an amazing game despite my 99% prediction.

    Kobe Bryant had no choice but to let Lin run the show, and Lin killed it!

    I love being WRONG!

  • khomphuong2

    Why have mods not banned this guy yet. He obviously comes here and stirs sh*t up.

  • Rick Johnson

    Miller illustrating Lakers defensive lapses (Kobe, Price) without actually naming players.

  • Alaingrvis

    well one guy who is a die hard kobe fan does

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    I agree, they thought Scott would be able to control Kobe and they thought would be that defensive coach that always claimed he could be. Scott would be a winning coach if he just let run the offense and teach the bigs on how to play.

  • Rick Johnson

    Oh I think that’s the first time I’ve heard JLin swear. “They shot the h…l out of the ball”

  • CJSHYY

    What are they talking about?

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • livyrlife

    Joyce, I ‘ve been reading and agreeing with your posts. Yes, BS has failed to control Kobe. too bad.

  • Brent Yen

    So naturally they cue commercial after Lin’s interview. LOL

  • Barry Allen

    LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Darn…LIn hates to lose so much.

  • livyrlife

    yup, that stubborn kid…just like me, smdh 😉

  • blubell

    I really interested in what he has to say… I was asking what Jeremy was saying 🙂

  • 311

    Me too 🙁

    I usually have a few tabs open to different streams in case one goes down but they all don’t work now.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    3-0 on the road would be excellent. Well 2-1 i take it any time.

  • Brent Yen

    True.

  • Brent Yen

    Somehow he can not control Price too..

  • jolno

    I don’t think Lakers are intentionally tanking either. However, by not controlling Kobe, the Lakers will end up losing way more games than they win. So I guess we can call it unintentional tanking.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I thought LAL going for 0-3 on the road after the disastrous game at Staple Center. Tired legs i guess.

  • Alaingrvis

    honestly i am amazed how polish lin looks. his game when it is on is flawless. right now he has to just polish it off. get a little better on iso’s and he is unstoppable. its such a big change from last year. he isn’t a drive all the time player anymore. this way he will have a longer career. it will save his body as well. all thats left is stop the up and downs which i thinks has to do with him figuring out and mastering the offense. i have to say jeremy continues to make leaps every offseason. shot blockers have no effect on him. all thats left is adjusting to defenses and learning the offense. if i was the lakers i would be saying man we stole lin for nothing. bigger improvement then last year

  • Brent Yen

    MIller is drinking something I am not gonna touch. “Hill is in the scouting report that he can shoot?!”

  • Riddick

    Ya, this has to be tough on him. Maybe that’s what he meant by a ‘huge step back’ for him. First time being on a bad team that he can’t help/fix?

  • Brent Yen

    Defense was different. Lin already improved to a point where passive loading is not working on him.

  • Alaingrvis

    its funny how they double lin and leave him open. lol they doubled lin and left kobe open for a layup now thats respect

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson
  • sws94

    Is Worthy and Horry part of TWC? They don’t seem to dislike Jeremy.

  • Alaingrvis

    i think what has worked on him is very smart fast defenses. that hides what they are doing well and out smarts him. but that won’t last once he learn the offense fully

  • Brent Yen

    Yep. I guess been guarded by Nelson worked too.LOL

  • joyce ward

    No Scott is trying to protect his decision about Price. Kobe/FO/Mitch realize that Price is a bust

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is inconsistent kobe has always been high volume low efficient shooter all year. defense has been very inconsistent by the lakers though

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s post game interview

  • Alaingrvis

    lins man never guard him its usually a whole team. they scheme how to stop him. be last game did well but he had a lot of help

  • Brent Yen

    They like him I think

  • livyrlife

    I think they are aware of the consequences of letting Kobe get his scoring surpass MJ’s. They weighed all the probable scenarios and decided to go with Kobe’s title.. 🙁

  • Alaingrvis

    or has been i mean

  • Brent Yen

    He will get better.

  • livyrlife

    Brent, what is passibe loading?

  • blubell

    I think Horry likes Jeremy more.

  • CaliUSMC

    u da man!

  • CaliUSMC

    woman*!

  • Brent Yen

    That is what I meant. 😛

  • k.smith

    Did I miss something? Did Scott say that he was going to insert Price into the starting lineup/replace Lin?

  • Alaingrvis

    yea its a chess math harvard guy will win lol

  • blubell

    BS

  • livyrlife

    I like Dirk and Kobe but after tonight, I like Dirk more. Dirk is so efficient despite he’s older.

  • Brent Yen

    HOU blitz the PnR. so the sagging big man will actually pushing Lin back. Passive I meant the big was only heding on Lin. Not really pressuring him when Lin only goes east and west.

  • blubell

    🙂

  • CJSHYY

    When did he say that? Today or few days ago?

  • orLinaryjoe

    So u r saying Kobe is consistently bad and Lin can be absolutely brilliant!

  • joyce ward

    No they wanted to reward Kobe with going for beating MJ points. They thought Scott could control kobe in a way that it would not be so obvious, but Scott has shown that he is totally clueless. I would not be surprised if Kobe turns on him.

  • Brent Yen

    That is automatic. He is a 7fter

  • Brent Yen

    few days ago yes

  • livyrlife

    thanks learnt something new again. 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    lol who can guard him its impossible

  • CJSHYY

    Sure. Kobe just be Kobe again..If not bc he didn’t play in 4Q then he sure would took more than 30 shots for this game?

  • blubell

    I think for HOU game.. maybe ATL

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe should be more like Dirk. Stand there and take good shots. Don’t dominate the ball, force double and triple teamed shots.

  • John Lee

    McHale put Lin on him, for whatever it’s worth.

  • livyrlife

    hmmm, you might be right. So Scott might be fired…in no time?

  • CJSHYY

    Before road game to that reporter… never mind what he said.. he has no power.

  • Brent Yen

    I thought that was b4 the road trip

  • Rick Johnson

    Think before ATL after Lin went 0/2.

  • k.smith

    5df&h08s%!

  • CJSHYY

    Exactly. But I doubt Kobe will do that…maybe lose more games then…

  • Alaingrvis

    lol kobe is what he is right now his prime is way behind him. while lin he shows glimpses of greatness. just have to fully relies it

  • livyrlife

    Kobe should learn it from Dirk.

  • blubell

    Lol. But Jeremy actually did well defending Dirk couple of times.

  • Alaingrvis

    i was very confused that game

  • k.smith

    Dang.

  • Brent Yen

    I feel Lin is about to turn on him….lol

  • 311

    Which I find really weird since I don’t remember him being a big supporter of Jeremy before coming to LA.

  • Alaingrvis

    or dirk just missed lol he is like 2.5 ft taller then lin

  • Rick Johnson

    Can you image that if he did. Ball hog Kobe and not offense/defense Price. Team would get blown out in the 1st quarter only to see them come back with Swaggy/Lin/Davis/Ellington lineup.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol wow great stuff

  • Brent Yen

    well that is one good thing about guarding Dirk. He settles for jumpers

  • Alaingrvis

    well one guy said it never happen so idc

  • blubell

    Horry is fair with Jeremy and not afraid of criticizing Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    hahahahaha i almost forgot

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    These reporters like lins post game interview, because he just breaks it down to them.

  • blubell

    Coach Jeremy! 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    I think Horry is simply just fair so far. He seems talks without agenda.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes!

  • Alaingrvis

    yea that is true. he is blunt recently could be a kobe affect. much more then before

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin be keepin it real all sudden yo

  • 311

    Yeah, liking what he has to say thusfar.

  • jolno

    Dirk is really all about the team winning. He signed a 3 years 25 millions deal this past summer.
    On the other hand, Kobe is currently on a 2 years 48.5 millions contract.
    Basically you can get 3 years of Dirk with one year of Kobe’s salary.

  • Alaingrvis

    real like a mother ……

  • Brent Yen

    I think Lin is being more careful on what he says in a sense that he does not become a media punch bag

  • livyrlife

    Ok, I finally found the video in the post game(LAL vs ROX Jan 2014) interview where Kobe says Jeremy plays extremely well against the Lakers…. at 0.32 mark. To me Kobe has lots of respect for Jeremy’s game.

  • Brent Yen

    He has to. THat 38p 7a game ….

  • 311

    I respect that a lot, not just in terms of Jeremy but in general. When I watch commentary I just want the facts straight up and credit where credit is due, criticism when it’s warranted.

  • Alaingrvis

    last year i think when mchale benched him the forth

  • livyrlife

    Dirk should win the VFM award if the Mavs win the championship this season.

  • Alaingrvis

    how

  • Rick Johnson

    Dirk took a pay cut so they could offer Parsons a max contract. Dirk said Parsons owes him dinner on road trips because that’s his money anyway.

  • k.smith

    maybe he thinks that price compliments kobe better like how mchale chose bev over lin.

  • joyce ward

    Feel bad for Kobe because age and his body is portraying him. I hope he gets smart after he beats MJ record, calm down and reflect and be a mentor to the young players,

  • livyrlife

    I believe Kobe genuinely likes and respect Jeremy, though some PR element come into play. Kobe is extremely smart yet old habits die hard…this old dawg just can’t hog the ball less. sigh

  • Brent Yen

    When the medias, Kobe and Lin fans were saying Lin was not assertive. He immediately jump out ans said he thinks he was aggressive. Problem was not his aggressiveness. Not medias are building on how he is inconsistent. I wonder what will he say.

  • JoeTeam

    yeah, give the blue print for 3pt D. Nice, hope they do it with him. I see him there on time. No Kobe challenges. Only 3 mistake on Lin was when he sagged on JN and he pulled up for a 3. Other than that, lots of in-your-face 3 challenges tho some made as expected.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin was 18pts on 8/11 shooting Kobe was 17pts on 6/22 shooting. If you double JLin’s shots to Kobe’s 22 he would have had 36pts.

  • Alaingrvis

    to be honest given how other guys have played after his injury it remarkable what he can still do.

  • Brent Yen

    He just need to become MJ. The team will start to win.

  • Alaingrvis

    mj was about the same by the end of his career. shot a lot as well

  • Rick Johnson

    Price doesn’t have any offense. Price’s man would just leave Price and double on Kobe.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    he has been tbh. he will over come it though

  • sws94

    Lin’s not happy with the Lakers. The team isn’t good and he wants to play for a playoff contending team. Even with Randle, this team is very poor and Byron is looking like an ineffective coach.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • CaliUSMC

    He’s going to the Spurs. Dont worry

  • Brent Yen

    Not the WSH MJ…LOL well I just meant the general MJ. Who does not shoot a 40fter with 10sec remain in the shot clock.

  • livyrlife

    It’s so ridiculous that Jeremy wasn’t given any FT in the last 2 games. NIL, seriously?

  • Brent Yen

    Maybe not results. More like he is mad at how Scott runs the team. But of course those are related.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is probably the happiest he has been in two years. relax they lost to the team they was suppose to lose to. 2/3 on a three rode games is good. small steps

  • TTNN

    I like his answer regarding the HOU video of his during the game, he immediately linked that to the jersey gate, hehe….

  • CaliUSMC

    That offensive foul when he stuck his leg out was ridiculous. Shoulda been and1

  • Alaingrvis

    no he won’t he will likely be a laker again

  • Brent Yen

    exactly

  • Brent Yen

    not just honest. also calculated.

  • Barry Allen
  • livyrlife

    That’s a 4pt play, right? No?

  • Brent Yen

    why?

  • sws94

    He can’t go full throttle all the time. He had other guys producing tonight, mainly Lin and Hill, and didn’t look for them enough. Lin got Kobe easy shots a few times yet Kobe went full throttle. I don’t understand the 28 foot jumper he airballed. That must have been mental fatigue, it was strange.

  • Brent Yen

    3p

  • joyce ward

    I agree that he is very mad on how Scott runs the team.

  • Alaingrvis

    he wasn’t really driving for fouls. his style has changed since last year. i don’t expect a lot of ft this year. especially if they have shot blockers

  • CaliUSMC

    It was a mid-range elbow

  • livyrlife

    ok.

  • TTNN

    HOU was cheap, that video was made last season, at the end of season, Rockets made those videos for each players. It is not a specially made, it is not even a new mix.

  • k.smith

    It works for Bev/Harden. Might work for Price/Kobe. Not saying i’m for this.

  • Alaingrvis

    because spurs have mills in a long contract and parker. lakers will be his best shot while kobe plays his last year

  • livyrlife

    … 🙁

  • blubell

    I bet deep inside he wishes he can take over coaching.

  • CJSHYY

    I didn’t on time to watch 1st half.. What happened to Young? Why he only took 7 shots? Did he play bad today?

  • Alaingrvis

    i think we had their stats its almost exactly the same with mj in wsh. its amazing how similar they are.

  • I just got back but I saw the score.
    So what happened in the 3rd quarter (42-24)?

    Did the defense falter again? Or offense stagnated with Kobe?

  • livyrlife

    fair comment but he’s called for offensive foul instead of being given foul calls…see below

  • JoeTeam

    young just regressed to the mean. Swag gone after one pffft. he will be back.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea he was off

  • sws94

    Well, not really. He kept getting switched off to Dirk and for some reason, he was effective guarding Dirk.

  • CaliUSMC

    Mavs were raining 3’s.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea refs have been brutle since the preseason

  • livyrlife

    hey, i like young’s gal..iggy ^.^

  • Alaingrvis

    defense watch lins interview below

  • BuzzerBeater

    they allowed 140pts psalm lol it was defense all the way

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sorry but BS is not in the same coaching class with Carlisle.

  • It looks like we need Post-Game thread?

  • ah Lakers’ Kryptonite .. thanks

  • blubell

    Yes!

  • JoeTeam

    for sure describing the 3pt D was natural and you have to wonder who besides Kobe he was referring to …

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe couldn’t guard Parsons, Boozer couldn’t guard Dirk. Kobe taking too many low percent shots. Killed team rhythm.

  • JoeTeam

    you’re so mod!

  • Alaingrvis

    a lot of people

  • same old, same old ., crime-fighting then when LAL is trailing. thanks.

  • JoeTeam

    We could have won had you been here at the helm …

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Thumbs up.

  • I guess so LOL

  • CaliUSMC

    Quit hitting refresh to be first ;p

  • I should apply to replace BS then LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    hahaha god himself couldn’t of stopped the sinking ship that was the lakers

  • blubell

    You found us a scapegoat 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    those threes drowned the team on national tv

  • nodomo

    And those weren’t even his best plays in that tribute video. They were just random shots he made and none of the ESPN Top 10 highlight-types that he had last season.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I smell very stinky from TWc, they played a recorded call in the air saying Jeremy Lin is not t a true point guard. WTF and the hosts didn’t even defend it?

  • blubell

    LOL

  • livyrlife

    I am doing it as I want to tell it loud that Jeremy and I have a very good field day!!! LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I am with you as well. I have JLin as 17/7.

  • Rick Johnson

    Miller says he’s a PG but needs to play consistent on and off ball. Miller is brain dead.

  • Alaingrvis

    his assist has been off this year but bet its the offense scheme. him not being used to it

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Ya. Case of Head you win .. tail I lose.

    Kobe Bryant 6-22 FG (missed first 8 shots from field) in loss to Mavericks; rest of Lakers shot 60.3 percent

  • JoeTeam

    we need one because JLin did not get 21.

  • JoeTeam

    he was a stubborn mule tonight sticking with a terrible lineup and performance then calling it quits end of Q3 30 pts down.

  • Rick Johnson

    At least Bev can hit a 3. You can’t leave him completely unguarded for long. Price is 17.4% from the 3, 26% FG%

  • Dan Cohen

    so close.. 18/5

  • LAJane

    Hahahahaha

  • Dan Cohen

    tell sterling.. and see what they say.. eventually so many complaints will make him at least think about doing something

  • Brewkowski

    Wipe that goofy grin off his face

  • Brewkowski

    Het JT, Raiders got one! Woohoo!

  • JoeTeam

    yeah, I know. Now you can’t go up 880 anymore during game time. They said tix were going for $10 I shoulda gone.

  • Brewkowski

    You should of. Now that they won, tickets are going for $15. Lol, wish they’re back in SoCal, I’d definitely go watch them.

  • JoeTeam

    good point, much cheaper than 9ers

  • GoodDayLA

    You know nothing about nothing

  • GoodDayLA

    He won’t. Jordan is his idol. Jordan went out in flames. Kobe will be unceremoniously pushed out the door at the end

  • GoodDayLA

    You are a creeper

  • John Lee

    Yet people keep chanting the propaganda that Lin can’t guard. SMH

  • John Lee

    McHale does have that effect on people. 🙂
