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!
