G14 DEN @ LAL Game Thread+Chat

Boozer is out and Ed Davis will start.

Will we see more PnR between Lin and Davis? Will this create a more flowing teamwork? The defense intensity will definitely pick up

I expect Lakers will lead after the 1st quarter because DEN is ranked #25 in allowing PPG at 105

JLin looks great in his 3pt shooting in practice

    1st 🙂

  • welcome back to your Linning throne, Queen! :]

  • blubell

    If you keep calling me Queen, I’m gonna have to start calling you my loyal subject 😛

  • JoeTeam

    nice 3 stroke. That kid has a fun job.

  • Chipdip

    Go Lin Go!

  • LOL.. I see why power corrupts haha..
    Ok, queen only for 5 seconds then ..:>

  • IsabeliJane*17

    puny 4th..

    JLin!

  • blubell

    See what you made me do 🙂
    I abdicate.

  • Barry Allen

    “The Lakers’ starting lineup is the most used five-man lineup in the NBA.

    It’s also arguably the worst, as its -100 point differential is the poorest mark by far. No other five-man unit has been outscored by more than 40 points.

    But when you swap out Jordan Hill for Ed Davis, the results swing dramatically.

    The starting four plus Davis has torn apart the opposition in their limited run together. They’re outpacing their competition by almost 36 points per 100 possessions, the sixth-best figure for any five-man lineup that has appeared in at least seven games.

    Add that to the argument for increasing Davis’ minutes.

    Watch this particular unit as the season progresses. Right now they’re shooting an insane 65 percent from the field and scoring an ungodly 147.8 points per 100 possessions—tops in the league and a pace that’s sure to falter soon.

    But if it remains efficient offensively and Davis’ presence bolsters the defense, this can turn into L.A.’s go-to crunch-time lineup.”

    Well, at least you’re consistent 🙂

  • haha.. it reminds me of that Elf Queen at the LOTR when being tempted to take the ring by Frodo :>

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Consistently puny? hahaha

  • blubell

    Wait… are you a Hobbit?

  • Let’s hope with Davis in, the real Lin is out of the bird cage to unleash Linsanity!

  • CaliUSMC

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Fly free little bird…. I mean, fly free, Gerald Green!

  • joyce ward
  • hm,.. I don’t have Frodo’s hairy feet and taller
    so maybe a Tall Hobbit!

  • joyce ward
  • 311

    Wow, Musselman’s wife is Danyelle Sargent. Nice job Eric! She reminds me a bit of Rosario Dawson.

  • joyce ward
  • a strategic coach! I like it

  • joyce ward
  • blubell
  • GoodDayLA

    hill stands on the perimter shooting jumpers so its ok to hve 1 guy ply inside

  • KL

    Exactly. Jeremy alluded to this when he said that it is hard to figure out the spacing when you have 2 bigs who like to pop instead of roll.

  • 717

    No hairy feet and taller. Must be an elf.

  • Rick Johnson

    They look like the crew of a cruise ship.

  • 717

    Galadriel.

  • KHuang

    BAD COACHING.

    Ed Davis spaces the court much better than Carlos Boozer does.

    That’s because Ed Davis actually rolls to the rim on the pick and roll, thus freeing up the congested midrange for Lin and other players to operate.

    At least it won’t be Jeremy Lin and 4 wannabe shooting guards that clog the midrange and refuse to cut to the basket.

  • blubell
  • cali7

    I like AC Green. He said some good things before too.

  • Rick Johnson

    Still depends on if Kobe will be in chucking mode. Hopefully Lin / Davis will be off to a hot start so Kobe doesn’t feel the need to start chucking.

  • KHuang

    I cannot agree with Worthy’s assessment.

    What Lin figured out last game was that he could pin his man behind the clogged midrange screen if he jab stepped his opponent into the pick.

    That allowed Lin to either step back for an uncontested 3 or fly to the rim for a layup past a big man trapped in the midrange.

    This won’t work against every team, especially against teams like Houston that go over picks to blitz Lin with multiple players defensively.

  • 717

    We don’t care about offense yet. Only D.

  • KHuang

    GOOD.

    More Sacre is a good thing.

  • LAJane

    LOL. They do…hahahahaha

  • Alaingrvis

    wait now I’m always defending scott but really really. didn’t he say it defense first . we score quite well we dropping a little there to gain a better defense would be you know one step back three step forwards type of thing. what happen to its all about defense. disappointed by that one

  • Alaingrvis

    even if we agreed with what he said. our offense is rated 6th i think lets say we drop to 8th or 10th but go from 30 or 31 defense to 22. hello scott this is actually better. assuming we accept what he said with no debate

  • KHuang

    Lin’s shooting footwork has been steadily getting better this season.

    When he started the season, I thought that his feet were pointed too much at the basket. That caused Lin to corkscrew his jump shots and made his release very hard and flat.

    But as a result of observing Kobe Bryant’s old fashioned Larry Bird style side release, Lin has been turning his feet to his left more and bending his knees properly. Now Lin’s shot is back to being soft and backspun the way it was during Linsanity.

    I may be a critic of Kobe Bryant’s game, but I am not a critic of Kobe Bryant’s shot form. I think Bryant has a superb side shooting form that is pretty much identical to what Michael Jordan and Larry Bird used to do.

    Lin’s father taught Lin to shoot in this manner. I hope Lin sticks with what his dad taught him.

  • cali7

    Also, pure speculation but this indicates to me a response to the lack of discussion by TWC AccessSports Net on Lin’s contribution last game.

  • KHuang

    Opponents are taking naps defensively as the Lakers play soft slow selfish freezeout basketball.

    This results in opponents saving all their energy for offense to burn the Lakers with.

    To improve the defense, the Lakers must involve more of their players offensively even if it results in a drop of the Lakers’ offensive ranking.

    Lin and Davis and Young are the only Lakers that provide a strong physical presence on the offensive end. The more those three are involved offensively, the less energy opponents will have to go wild when the Lakers are on defense.

  • Maknusia

    As long as none are Spiegel, fine with me, Precious!

  • blubell
  • HY C

    One of the refs is 77, I remember he is the one watching LBJ holding JLIN and did nothing

  • JT

    i think lakers win this

  • Chipdip

    Kobe: Jeremy, just remember pass me the ball and wait in the corner.

  • KHuang

    A more balanced Lakers offensive attack would cause opponents to expend energy chasing cutters and fighting through screens and stopping the ball.

    That energy thus would not be saved by opponents for the offensive end of the court.

    This is why slow paced freezout heroball ALWAYS FAILS in the NBA – it kills teams on both ends of the court.

  • sws94

    Shoot it Jeremy. Stu’s right. Lin changed his mind there. Unnecessary TO.

  • JT

    oo bad TO by lin

  • KHuang

    Boozer is getting better at flaring out to open spots, but Hill is still lazy and slow even on cuts that are designed to get him the ball.

  • Alaingrvis

    they look faster already

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Those yoga sessions seems to be paying well for Jeremy. Those acrobatic shots.

  • 717

    Smeagol. Kobe is Gollum.

  • Chipdip

    any link to the game? thanks

  • sport
  • Chipdip

    thank you

  • Barry Allen

    Wow this starting 5 looks much better so far! Seem like a lot better spacing and good ball movement.

  • Rick Johnson

    Davis will do a much better job of containing Faried.

  • Alaingrvis

    look at the active defense

  • Barry Allen

    Nice block.

    Lin doing a good job on Lawson

  • yes, Lin contained him from going to the rim

  • Rick Johnson

    JLin what was that? Bad pass.

  • sport

    Bad TO, Lin should’ve just taken that shot himself!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has to shoot that

  • JT

    2nd bad TO by Lin

  • yup, shouldn’t have thrown it back out.
    Lin needs to shoot it hoping for an offensive rebound

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya, stop looking for Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    a miss is better then that turnover. the jump and pass is a issue for lin

  • Dan Cohen

    I doubt the coach told him to do that.. that is a boneheaded play. period. Should’ve try to shoot that in.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • sws94

    Lin needs to stop the last minute pass decision. It is a bad one. Shoot that mid-range like last game.

  • Defense has been very solid with Ed Davis so far.
    No easy penetration to the rim that Boozer usually allows.

    Lin tried to get going with Davis on PnR but working quite yet.

  • Rick Johnson

    Sure if he drew the defense and Kobe wide open but Kobe didn’t have a better situation than he did.

  • Alaingrvis

    the thing is lin is good enough to make that shot

  • Promo Sports World

    Shoot that is all

  • Maknusia

    I’m fine with early TO, atleast he is trying to be aggressive and has 2 FGA. As long as he doesnt go into too cautious mode

  • Lawson attacked Kobe during transition and got fouled.

  • CaliUSMC

    JAVALEEE MCGEEEE! – Shaqs voice

  • Barry Allen

    Wow Lawson got mauled, no easy points in the paint for him tonight.

  • Maknusia

    Kobe’s shot been falling today, so far so good

  • Maknusia

    Lin is out….hmmm

  • sport

    4 minutes left how come Lin’s going out so early?

  • sws94

    Lin and Davis to the bench but Kobe is still out there. Make sense for Kobe this game as he is hot. Not sure why Davis and Lin are out already.

  • Alaingrvis

    this is scott rotation

  • Pete Roces

    Lin just can’t get the feel of the game, horrible decision making. He plays like a scrub.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe is the one that needs to rest, his FG% drops in the 4th quarter. Gets tired. Scott doing poor job of managing his minutes.

  • Dan Cohen

    have you been watching laker games???

  • Alaingrvis

    lol really

  • Lin couldn’t find his rhythm yet in the 1st quarter. Just couldn’t get the PnR with Davis going
    Hope he figures out how to attack DEN defense more effectively in Q2

  • Dan Cohen

    hopefully.

  • Maknusia

    Davis was also substituted early…its coach decision lets see, if its makes sense

  • JT

    nuggets aren’t very good….

  • Chipdip

    Lakers like to stand around in offence…

  • Promo Sports World

    Bad teams wow

  • Dan Cohen

    kobes’ doing fine so far.

  • sport

    That’s cause Kobe likes hogging the ball on offense.

  • Rick Johnson

    They would look good if Boozer was in. Faried is very good.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy shoot Ty doesn’t play d

  • Dan Cohen

    but he’s doing fine so far.. lin got his shots.. 1-3

  • Alaingrvis

    this unit is struglling bad. the bench needs boozer

  • Maknusia

    Watch it, lets not call players as scrub. Personally i dont think there are any scrub players, in NBA. If there are recruited it, they have some talent. SOme has more some has less, but still they are NBA players

  • roberlin

    Lin a little off in the first. He won’t come back until six minutes are left in the second. Weird rotation.

  • sws94

    Kobe moves offball. If others moved offball they may get it more. But, Kobe and others have to find LIn when he is wide open from 3.

  • sport

    Too bad Lin only made 1 shot a layup so far and miss the other two with 2 bad TOs. He really need to just shoot when he’s getting that close the rim. He tried passing back out to Kobe which cause a TO.

  • sws94

    I know, it’s something consistent with Byron.

  • Maknusia

    yeah, thats one think thats lacking, not sure why scott, or Lin to the team, may have not spoke about it?…not sure

  • roberlin

    That’s where you wish Scott was more inconsistent with his rotation.

  • sport

    This game feels boring ;/

  • Davis is out and DEN is scoring easily in the paint

  • Rick Johnson

    He should play Lin longer to let him build a rhythm.

  • Rick Johnson

    Price sucks.

  • roberlin

    Stupid foul by Price. Lost Ty Lawson.

  • yeah, hard to get into the rhythm sitting out that long,

  • I have no idea why Byron always plays Kobe all 12 min in the 1st quarter.

  • Maknusia

    Thats something he should have learnt or need to learn. His last 2 season had been similar as well, sadly

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Nick playing PG? uhh…

  • sws94

    That TO on Kobe or Sacre?

  • Dan Cohen

    at least kobe is PASSING.. he passed more in this game than most other games.

  • Maknusia

    maybe, he gets too stiff, if does get that warmup on 1stQ

  • CaliUSMC

    kobe

  • Kobe

  • Rick Johnson

    Scott is basically Kobe’s caddy.

  • Chipdip

    wow… Denver is really bad

  • Maknusia

    Kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    they are 5-7

  • spiderman

    Sacre with 2 steals so far lol

  • Chipdip

    I mean, Lakers is so bad, any other team would be leading the Lakers now at least 10 pts. Guess, the Lakers has friends.

  • roberlin

    “Painful to watch” game so far.

  • sport

    Rather see Nick as PG than Price as PG if Lin’s off the floor.

  • hm, that makes sense.
    Kobe is using 1st quarter as a warm-up :]

  • Alaingrvis

    lin may play with the bench since boozer isn’t there to. thats why he may have come out 1 minute earlier then usual

  • CaliUSMC

    Atleast its not a blowout yet. Walking Dead will have to wait!

  • BuzzerBeater

    2 fouls already for both Moz and McGee, good news

  • Maknusia

    you saw the miss FT….he does that early in the game, most of the time

  • Rick Johnson

    Price is no resistance for Lawson

  • It’s really contradictory to the strategy to save Kobe’s minutes

  • Maknusia

    lol…yet? 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    price can’t guard lawson

  • JT

    he ‘s just not a good player. Bad on offense and defense.

  • sport

    This will be a snooze fest unless Lin scores alot with some nice lobs with Davis ><"

  • Alaingrvis

    very unfortunate

  • Barry Allen

    First basket by Lawson without Lin on the floor.

  • Alaingrvis

    when the starters played it was fun

  • BuzzerBeater

    he had 0 help, no one can stop Lawson like that.
    I didnt even see Sacre near by, who on earth was he covering that he couldnt help lol smh

  • roberlin

    Lin wasn’t comfortable on offense. Denver was double-teaming him.

  • Brent Yen

    Just came back…..Lin sucks again? LOL #Trollmode

  • CaliUSMC

    He has to get over it.

  • sport

    Except Lin missed 2 shots and had 2 bad TO =/

  • Alaingrvis

    he was ok. he missed an open mid shot he usually makes

  • CaliUSMC

    😡

  • Chipdip

    Lin is just getting warm up… no worry

  • Alaingrvis

    i was wrong

  • JT

    stop..its not a double team..its a trap

  • I think DEN is packing the paint so there’s no space to do PnR.
    Lin, Nick Young. Kobe needs to make some 3s to draw people out first

    0-2 from 3s in Q1

  • sport

    2nd unit seems to always start 2nd quarter.

  • Rick Johnson

    Another stupid Price TO

  • Alaingrvis

    get lin back in please

  • Lam

    lol, I like the optimism, this site and that site is like the ying and yang of jeremy lin fan site.

  • sport

    Nuggets are so horrible yet Lakers aren’t blowing them out.

  • sport

    Lin never gets to play with 2nd unit so not even going to expect that.

  • Maknusia

    should let the bench play, until we loose the lead?! 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    If Lin was running second unit they’d be blowing them out. They are only in it because the Nuggets second unit isn’t doing that good.

  • Alaingrvis

    they look really bad until young made a few shots

  • Rick Johnson

    Even when he does Price plays PG and doesn’t pass to Lin

  • spiderman

    A lot of doubters and even haters there. Makes you wonder why they even visit a Jeremy Lin fan-site

  • JT

    they’re blowing layups and open 3’s…lol

  • Promo Sports World

    Scott has no plan or no true logic

  • Chipdip

    We never give up, right? 🙂 Go Lin Go… oh… he is still sitting… Darn!

  • Promo Sports World

    Scott thanks Jason kidd everyday

  • sport

    Exactly so I rather Lin not play with 2nd unit and just accept that his minutes are only with starters. Not like Lin can’t get 20 points per game playing with starters so long as he keeps shooting and not be passive.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy should lead this team. By leading I mean COACH this team as well.

  • Wow DEN 0-9 from 3s
    Lakers might win by default, hahaha!

  • Maknusia

    fine with doubters and haters, as long as there is no personal attacks, and mocking on each other or players

  • CaliUSMC

    Price knew that was a miss thats why he got the offensive reb. lol

  • Watching Price shooting 3s makes me miss Toney Douglas 🙁

  • Chipdip

    Price is playing himself out of a job soon

  • Maknusia

    yeah, good to see we are taking some 3s

  • sport

    LOL OMG Nuggets brick after brick of open 3s.

  • Thank God Ellington is back to shoot some 3s

  • Rick Johnson

    With Kobe out Lin should be the #1 offensive weapon and Price doesn’t even pass to him. Complete incompetence.

  • roberlin

    Nope. Not with BS in charge. He loves him some price.

  • sport

    The golden boy of BS?! Not a chance!

  • Promo Sports World

    Price gets too many minutes

  • CaliUSMC

    0-11 now

  • LAL starts to pull away with 2 3s already 27-21

  • sport

    Golden Scrub not going to get cut cause BS is coach. Sad but true.

  • Promo Sports World

    Lakers can’t be a fun team to play with

  • Rick Johnson

    I’d rather see Clarkson than Price.

  • Maknusia

    NYoung is there as the offensive weapon…its second unit in fight now…so its fine

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe ISO
    Swaggy ISO

  • sport

    Nick Young chucking all the shots on 2nd unit, Kobe Jr.

  • CaliUSMC

    Uh price has been in way too long

  • Promo Sports World

    Ok coach 6 minute make im guessing

  • Good to see Ellington with a breakaway dunk!

  • sport

    Ellington with the dunk! Now that woke up the Lakers bench and crowd!

  • John Lee

    Price wasting Davis talent and Jeremy PT.

  • Promo Sports World

    Yup 6 minute

  • Maknusia

    clap clap

  • he’s a non-factor out there so far.
    Just bring the ball up

  • Promo Sports World

    Comes back with Kobe

  • IsabeliJane*17

    BS, enough of forcing the Price-Davis pairing.It’s sickening already.

  • Rick Johnson

    Big cheer Lin coming back in

  • sport

    Lin and Kobe back first at 6min mark.

  • Maknusia

    lin is in!

  • CaliUSMC

    Johnson is back to reality again.

  • Rick Johnson

    Or maybe that was for Kobe, Kobe and Lin

  • John Lee

    You’re being kind, he’s been a negative factor.

  • CaliUSMC

    NICE LAYUP BY LIN!

  • Who’s guarding Afflalo for that 3?
    Kobe right?

  • sport

    Kobe was coming in too not sure who was it for.

  • John Lee

    BS hoping Davis would help Price stats, but ends up dragging down Davis’.

  • Promo Sports World

    Really hard to watch this team….no real strategy

  • BuzzerBeater

    its horrible 🙁

  • sport

    Johnson stinking it up again after a great start of the game with his defensive plays.

  • Promo Sports World

    Any pg would struggle with Kobe and this putrid game plan

  • John Lee

    Real strategy to make Kobe, Swaggy and Price shine, team win be damned.

  • Rick Johnson

    Davis saved Price from Lawson blowing by him.

  • sport

    BS thinks any PG can pad stats and assists with Davis just cause he plays well with Lin!

  • dons

    If the PG is not going to score, at least must make assists and not TO.

  • Rick Johnson

    Jeremy shoot that!!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Jeremy these passes… lol get it together boy

  • John Lee

    Price had more minutes than Lin when Jeremy checks back in. BS and his BS rotation.

  • roberlin

    this game is brutal to watch.

  • John Lee

    And he’d be right, except Price is no PG.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lawson can’t score on Lin

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy going pass silly

  • John Lee

    Wes acting normal again…

  • CaliUSMC

    nice layup LIN!

  • Good patience by Lin to do easy layup after faking Mozgov out

  • IsabeliJane*17

    hehehe Jeremy not respecting Mozgov on the inside.. lay-up!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Scott must be telling Jeremy that Price is a good PG and Jeremy trying to imitate Price. Jeremy has to play HIS game.

  • sport

    Time out, Kobe screaming at Lin and Lin screaming back what was that about? O.o

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy just told Kobe swing that pass son

  • BuzzerBeater

    Jeremy playing great defense on Lawson, sadly the other Lakers keep letting their man score open 3s, sigh.

  • Alaingrvis

    regular game stuff

  • maybe talking about how to get Lin open at 3

  • sport

    Doubt it, probably about offense cause Kobe almost lost the ball in double team, saved by Ed Davis.

  • Promo Sports World

    After Houston Jeremy ain’t scared of no one

  • sws94

    Great, passion. Good stuff.

  • Brent Yen

    That was obviously a joke LOL

  • bolero

    Kobe and Lin having some exchanges after the fouled on Davis

  • BuzzerBeater

    lol stop, those silly unforced TOs are all on Jeremy.
    Bad decisions, he’s gotta shoot those.

  • LW

    Why is every team raining 3’s on the Lakers so easily? Why, Why, Why, Scott?

  • sport

    Because Lakers don’t defend those wide open 3s!

  • joyce ward

    Lin get your stats

  • That was a needed 3 by Ellington

  • Good job by Lin helping D to prevent the easy dunk

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy can easily burn the Nuggets with Ellington and Davis. Too bad, BS can’t see that.

  • roberlin

    it’s hard to do when he only plays six minutes in the second quarter. Lame rotation by Scott.

  • CaliUSMC

    I want him to get a career high

  • Alaingrvis

    lin started rough but he is grinding it out. good stuff

  • Lin needs to keep shooting to get into rhythm.
    Come on, Lin!

  • roberlin

    kobe iso last shot of the second.

  • Nice falling down D by Lin to entice Lawson to travel LOL

  • Promo Sports World

    Great d

  • Chipdip

    Jeremy, great defence!

  • roberlin

    thought that three was going to go in. Damn it.

  • Rick Johnson

    Oh, Jeremy hit those!!!!

  • sport

    Lin’s 3s not falling tonight 🙁

  • Alaingrvis

    its ok

  • John Lee

    At this point I think Roscoe would be a better starting SF than Wes.

  • 2 good look at 3s but Ellington and Lin can’t make it.

    Lin needs to keep shooting them!

  • Brent Yen

    So the back is hurtling Lin again?

  • Chipdip

    better he shoots it…

  • sport

    LOL At least it worked. But I think Lin was trying to draw a charge.

  • Rick Johnson

    He needs to keep shooting. Seems like if he misses a few shots he just disappears offensively.

  • roberlin

    maybe. good point. Who knows, though.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ll let his missed shots slide for now. That back…

  • Alaingrvis

    i agree with scot the offense is little more clogged with out boozer

  • sport

    I agree only way to get out of slump is to shoot, especially if those shots are wide open!

  • 311

    His shots are long, not short, so I think he’s OK unless he’s compensating by overshooting.

  • John Lee

    Lin with least minutes amongst starters, BS love for Price is ridiculous.

  • Promo Sports World

    how can you play price that many minutes coach

  • joyce ward

    how many points does he have

  • Promo Sports World

    6 fine 10 come on

  • sport

    Lin always gets the least minute out of starters! Price the scrub of scrubs getting 20 minutes is just ridiculous!!

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC

    4pts/2asts/2to/2foul/2reb

  • JT

    i dread the day when the lakers actually acquire a decent PG. Lin will never see the court.

  • nodomo

    4 pts. 2 for 6. Couple of bad turnovers from bad passes.

  • Alaingrvis

    im ok with lin missing he usually turn those game around if he stays aggressive

  • sws94

    He needs to do one of those 2nd half switches and gets in in gear that we’ve seen on the Rockets. Hasn’t done so yet for the Lakers. Time to start with this game. Score at least 12, these low scoring games are killing is PPG.

  • Chipdip

    Jeremy will get many points and assists in the second half.

  • Alaingrvis

    its usually boozer

  • Promo Sports World

    6 shots going to get at least 10-12 shots so there is that

  • JoeTeam

    blocked by Mozgov on one layup, then faked him into the air for simple 2 next time. He’s ok, one of is slow halves not helped by a lot of bench time.

  • joyce ward

    I wander what Kobe and lin were screaming about?

  • sws94

    Wes is playing excellent D.

  • Alaingrvis

    bball stuff.

  • Brent Yen

    Probably just something Like. Kobe thinks Lin should have shoot it, while Lin think Kobe took his eyes off the ball.

  • Grace

    I’m watching the Denver telecast and they said — when driving, Ty is more effective when he’s looking to shoot than just looking to pass. JLin needs to shoot first, too.

  • JoeTeam

    it was right after kobe’s behind the back pass to Davis. Must have been on the action just before that.

    Seems to have settled out because that before half missed 3 was set up 2 passes to Lin. A great look. I needed that 3.

  • JoeTeam

    hey all, not sure if you noticed, but as soon as Lin came back in, lawson was not a threat anymore and regional college ball became an NBA game again.

    SwagP and Price were a mess.

  • Grace

    They also said the Lakers are playing without a true point guard (in JLin), that he’s loose with the ball and does not defend well. That’s their view. 🙁

  • Promo Sports World

    Who said this?

  • Grace

    Denver announcers.

  • Alaingrvis

    idc

  • Promo Sports World

    Their homers that’s what they do

  • JoeTeam

    back after the game. watching with family.

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly they will say what they say

  • Promo Sports World

    Odell Beckham catch was wowser

  • cali7

    That’s bc Johnson is there for defense for kobe

  • Rick Johnson

    So he held Lawson to 0 FG. Price gave up his only basket.

  • sport

    It was a great look but Lin missed it.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy has to stop those stupid TOs though doesn’t help him

  • PPP

    Im sure i dont want lin stay with the lakers next season lol

  • that’s not true.
    Lin’s D on Lawson was excellent and his help D prevented an easy dunk.
    We probably need Lin’s defensive highlights

  • CaliUSMC

    He’s goign to the mavs. It’ll happen

  • Maknusia

    misses are fine, as long as he keep shooting it

  • Rick Johnson

    Hopefully Kobe says no big deal, just keep shooting it.

  • PPP

    Money is not a concern for lin, so 5m oer would be good enough. Justcwant ti see him play his game.

  • BuzzerBeater

    or the Bulls

  • yeah, this is not getting better with BScott as a coach :]

  • Grace

    I agree – we need JLin defensive highlights.

  • Maknusia

    that was a bad TO from Kobe

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy banking that shot…

  • Maknusia

    nice!!!! Get it going Jeremy!

  • good job getting closer to the rim

  • Brent Yen

    Lin’s foot works for go over the screen changed?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Bank me, Jeremy.. – says the ball

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Bank me…

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin time

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Pull up J!!!!

  • CaliUSMC

    STOP-POP BY LIN

  • Nice stop & pop by JLin! 😀

  • BuzzerBeater

    there you go, and he was hesitant with it too lol
    exploit that mid-range jumper Jeremy!

  • Maknusia

    He is getting HOT!!! Go Go GO…dont stop now…

  • sport

    Lin back to back buckets! Looking great!

  • Acbc

    Doooooh, Homer, simpletons.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s HOT!

  • Great easy point by Kobe

  • Maknusia

    More Hotter!!! 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Why is Jordan Hill playing as.. stretch 4? He can’t even play as proper 5.

  • Brent Yen

    No his foot work did not change. My bad

  • sport

    Great outlet Pass from Lin to Kobe!!

  • LOL

  • roberlin

    Lin playing much better this half. Spacing on the floor seems a lot better.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin picking it up as i said stay aggressive he will turn it around

  • sport

    Jordan Hill can’t do post up plays, gave up on it and focused on his mid range instead.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    For a big body… ugh…

  • roberlin

    Jeremy LIN!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin

  • LINSANITY!!! And-1!!!

  • CaliUSMC

    OOOOOOOOO. Asian boy got and1

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Stu putting my LOF to shame….

  • sport

    Nice And 1 with 2 defender up in his face!

  • Promo Sports World

    Lots of pep in that step

  • LINSANITy! YEAHH!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Attack it J!

  • BuzzerBeater

    TIMEOUT called cuz Linsanity unleashed!

  • sport

    Lin fast break! 13 points! Linsanity NIght!! Almost tied points with Kobe!

  • Promo Sports World

    Hey Scott Ronnie price going to get PT????

  • dons

    uh-oh. Lin gonna pass KB for pts. Will BS put Price back in to conserve Lin for 4Q?

  • JT

    good to see lin didn’t pass it on the fastbreak

  • roberlin

    Ronnie still going to get his mini-starter minutes. SMH.

  • CaliUSMC

    5mins into 3rd quarter – Lin got 9!

  • sws94

    YAYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michael

    Just woke up and I see Lin is doing great. ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

  • 311

    You’re not aggressive enough tonight.

  • and Lakers outscored DEN 17-10 :]
    Linning, baby!

  • Briiick

    Linsanity
    ! Thanks to Kobe ‘s leadership, the chemistry is on the right track.

  • LW

    Kobe and Lin both 6/10 at this point. Kobe is sharing with Lin?

  • Brent Yen

    Ty Lawson actually reads the defenses very similar to how Lin does.

  • John Lee

    Kobe in assist mode right now.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    What happened to Ed Davis?!?!

  • John Lee

    Price cooties.

  • 311

    4th foul, went straight to locker room. don’t know why though.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    hahaha no really what happened? I went to the kitchen and when I came back he’s walking to the locker room.

  • Brent Yen

    Saclaguwon

  • IsabeliJane*17

    thought he was injured or something

  • CaliUSMC

    LINSANITY!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy you’re free to use your midrange.

  • LW

    Man! They are raining 3’s on Lakers again!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Dont touch the ball ever Kobe.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jesus Kobe

  • Promo Sports World

    No D

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe has dialed down his D

  • 311

    Didn’t look like it but he was pretty heated though, yapping at Ty Lawson. Maybe he went back to cool off a bit. Hope he’s not hurt.

  • Promo Sports World

    Bad bad don’t pick up dribble

  • sws94

    DOn’t mind that TO.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin is arguing with refs alot more this season

  • sport

    Lin can’t pick up his dribble like that!

  • Alaingrvis

    it was ok he got trapped

  • dons

    But shouldn’t teammates rotate around to provide Lin an outlet?

  • Alaingrvis

    me two

  • Rick Johnson

    Price in? Jeeze Scott needs to be fired.

  • Brent Yen

    Picking up the dribble is one thing. The problem is Refs are not gonna call it when it was your wrist been hooked.

  • sws94

    That time he should of, good defensive play by Nuggets that time. Lin had nothing inside.

  • Promo Sports World

    Make the quick pass

  • GoodDayLA

    he should. get some Ts

  • Brent Yen

    Lin will just have to deal with it.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe missing FT, legs tired. Rest him Scott

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Come on Scott give Ellington some burn

  • Brent Yen

    Ty Lawson is so happy to see Price.

  • sport

    Kobe tired as well take him out Scott!

  • dons

    Lawson immediately finds open space and shot over Price! Lin was doing a great job.

  • roberlin

    So, when do you think Lin is going to come back in? With six minutes left in the fourth again?

  • CaliUSMC

    10minute mark

  • occupatio

    i just got in. what did i miss?

  • dons

    After Lawsons shoots the lights out, for much too long.

  • Weifang

    yeah, all those PGs release their frustration on poor Price

  • 7 if Lakers is behind 10pts

  • Dan Cohen

    he just have to shoot it during times like that. that’s what I mean by double team.he has only 1 wa to go..up..
    and also I dont know if he is trying to padd stats with assists.. after he scores a lot..he try to balance it with assists.

  • sport

    Hopefully earlier than later. 10/ 8 minute mark would be best.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i thought they said lin had slow lateral movement. lawson crossing him so easily. look like cris paul or kyrie

  • Brent Yen

    Not much. LIN got 0p0a 15tov

  • John Lee

    Price = Defensive Juggernaut 3.0.

  • Lin not finding rhythm in 1st half and LINSANITY in Q3 :]

  • CaliUSMC

    glimpse of linsanity.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    A Jeremy bank shot, some crazy layups, and Jeremy heating up his midrange game.

  • Alaingrvis

    hhahahahaha yea all true

  • Brent Yen

    I agree..

  • occupatio

    nice

  • roberlin

    I hope you’re right!

  • 311

    OK, Trudell just updated saying that Davis went to retape ankle since he tweaked it earlier, but he’s ok and ready to come back anytime he wants according to coach.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You’re putting the actual Lin haters to shame…

  • Weifang

    Brent, you really think Occupatio is not going to read the previous post? lol

  • GoodDayLA

    why lin minutes so low?

  • cali7

    What happened to pulling someone for not defending and Wilson chandler raining 3s? Yet lin sits when he is scoring and defending? Let me guess kobe ‘ s man and kobe doesn’t sit despite looking peaked

  • Brent Yen

    I tried…well…LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Oh and bottling up Lawson

  • blubell

    Scott loves Price

  • Rick Johnson

    Why they talking about Lin’s 3 TO? Don’t even mention that Kobe has 4.

  • sport

    A crazy And 1 with 2 defenders in his face that was sick!!

  • GoodDayLA

    sucks

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin’s TO’s are always magnified. Even during linsanity. So lame

  • IsabeliJane*17

    ugh… of all the bigs, why Ed Davis.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Let’s hope Swaggy heats up too!

  • John Lee

    Or he loves Lawson, so he puts in Price to let Lawson score.

  • roberlin

    Stu said a couple of turnovers were just part of the game. He was pretty favorable to Lin, saying Lin overall is having a really good game.

  • sport

    So long as Lin get 20 points I could care less what those haters say about his TOs when the suppose stars of the league have 10x more than him!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Swaggy needs someone to set his shots up. It’s not Price.

  • spiderman

    thats what haters do

  • GoodDayLA

    to keep lin down

  • occupatio

    ronnie is really good at hitting others in the head

  • roberlin

    Will Ronnie Price score more points than turnovers? 2 TO’s, ZERO points. LOL.

  • cali7

    But stu quick to say playing good and just that 1 to bad.

  • John Lee

    He should start for Ultimate Fighting?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If Price can’t guard Nate Robinson.. well…

  • GoodDayLA

    as we all know, fake talk.

  • occupatio

    im shocked how much kobe is passing it. reversing it to weak side very well

  • Brent Yen

    WEll Lin did yelled at him…who knows.

  • GoodDayLA

    robinson is really good, no joke

  • it’s so bad that he’s wondering why he’s still out there.
    Mekel can’t be this bad *sigh*

  • BuzzerBeater

    Friggin’ Nate, Sacre might not have kids after that kick he got.

  • Alaingrvis

    robinson kick sacre. saying scare bleu

  • dons

    Nate makes a nice Kick to Sacre’s G-spot on floater! foul.

  • roberlin

    Kicked ball on Nate Robinson. 😀

  • GoodDayLA

    really? about damn time . lins problem is simply persona. needs to have the balls to lead these guys vocally. thats his only real fight

  • dons

    When robinson gets hot, he can stream the ball in from all over, near and far.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Sacre working his butt off this game. Good for him, he’s a great cheerleader on the bench so Im glad he’s doing well.

  • occupatio

    nate is eating ronnie alive

  • Rick Johnson

    Price is 0 pts 0 ast 2 TO 2PF. SMH

  • roberlin

    Ronnie Price with another brick. They should just cut him right now.

  • John Lee

    Yet Nate only gets half as many minutes as Price.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy needs to come in at 10 min mark

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Cheerleader. Bench mascot. Too bad, Jeremy is on the bench.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Nate’s just out there to kill everyone, he just elbowed Price in the face, wtf lol

  • Alaingrvis

    price leaning got lucky

  • GoodDayLA

    seriously lins minutes so low, i dont get it. kobe so high make no sense

  • dons

    Why does Price keep (not) making 3’s, rather than passing to a shooter? He’s a really bad 3-pt shooter. Or why does Kobe pass to him on the 3-pt line — does he expect him to shoot? or pass.

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    Ronnie Price isn’t a bad 3-pt shooter. He’s just bad, period.

  • Brent Yen

    He has to shoot it. Otherwise, his life will be even harder. Not that it will not be harder after he shoots it.

  • Weifang

    I was told it’s Laker’s culture, no reason, just accept it.

  • he’s too open to not take the shot

  • Rick Johnson

    Price shouldn’t even be on the court.

  • cali7

    I like nate Robinson’s aggression but playing put of control

  • GoodDayLA

    its kobes team, i do get that

  • Chipdip

    Come on Jeremy, you are not done yet… go go go!

  • Brent Yen

    Save the energy for our best player on the team.

  • Rick Johnson

    I’d rather see Clarkson in than Price. Is Price Scott’s brother in law or something?

  • BScott got his back :] he should be able to make it w/o worry.
    This is so perplexing

  • joyce ward

    Nobody can outscore kobe..LOL

  • occupatio

    price passed up an open three earlier. ended up with hill shooting a long 2. so stupid.

  • 311

    He’s really making the best out of this opportunity with Boozer out and Davis with fouls. Props to him.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • Weifang

    Lin probably knows he has to fire it up in 3rd q, he will not get shots in 4th q.

  • John Lee

    At this rate if he’s not he will be soon.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Brent Yen

    Den stole a time out from the LAL….,..

  • dons

    Lin is exactly 10 years younger, needs more time to develop! until he too, gets old legs.

  • GoodDayLA

    lol true

  • BuzzerBeater

    Look at Coach Scott, so passionately drawing up another Kobe ISO

  • Promo Sports World

    Game will be lost in first 2 mins with this lineup

  • Briiick

    I saw it too, hopefully Kobe finally got it.

  • occupatio

    looks like lin wont be in till lawson returns.

  • Weifang

    taking Lin out right after TOV when he is hot. reminds me McHale a lot.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Dangit, 5 fouls on Davis 🙁

  • Maknusia

    closer than that!

  • Brent Yen

    6m mark

  • JC

    I would salute lin for yelling at kobe, if he could command players like kobe, he will go a long way in nba as a pg

  • GoodDayLA

    probably

  • Alaingrvis

    davis staying in

  • GoodDayLA

    u mean kobe right 🙂

  • John Lee

    The Laker with best FG% has least minutes amongst starters, go figure.

  • Chipdip

    Nick, please focus and play better!

  • GoodDayLA

    lin will come back with kobe

  • roberlin

    that won’t be the six minute mark.

  • CaliUSMC

    Keep missing price ya bum

  • Skwo

    Ronnie Price for 3!

  • GoodDayLA

    if lin comes back AFTER Kobe, I will be irate

  • occupatio

    stupid 2nd unit just put denver in the bonus. how many minutes are left?

  • JC

    I would like to see price at least make a shot

  • Rick Johnson

    Is the only way we get Price out of the game is to have him foul out? Denver will avoid letting Price foul for fear he will have to leave.

  • occupatio

    swaggy airballs against the dwarf

  • Promo Sports World

    Get young and price out

  • dons

    Announcer says 0-3 on 3 pointers already. Earlier he said several times in a row, one wonders when Ronnie Price is going to get his shots to fall (answer: look at his stats the last 10 years, don’t count on it). Where the heck in Lin. He’s young and can easily play 35+ min.

  • JC

    is price playing decent on the defensive end? why is BS keep playing him

  • Maknusia

    Jeez, scoreless Q?!

  • John Lee

    Price getting into construction business.

  • GoodDayLA

    lin is playing EXACTLY as he should. THisi s a PPG league and if Lin scores, he will be a problem for the NBA and thats exactly what we need fromLin.

  • SamC89

    Unless it’s because Lin is still slightly hurt and he’s just trying to manage his minutes?

    I know he’s had less minutes in the past, but this is a huge difference.

    Still, I strongly believe BS is not biased because he did put Lin back in several times even after he didn’t do that well (for example, the Rockets game). I think BS just wants to keep everyone’s confidence up and make sure the team can function as a unit.

  • Maknusia

    somewhat, but not great

  • occupatio

    this is some ugly basketball

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    Will Byron put Lin in after the time out?

    I say NO.

  • Maknusia

    we needed the timeout!

  • BuzzerBeater

    LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    what is scott doing

  • dons

    Wasn’t Lin attacking the basket and scoring in 3Q. Lakers are missing anyone who can attack the basket with this group. Too many 3-pt shooters who are not great 3-pt shooters.

  • occupatio

    man i was bored. this was ugly bball

  • John Lee

    Nothing.

  • Promo Sports World

    This loss will be on the coach

  • Brent Yen

    2nd unit actually is in more need to have some good set to get some good shots off.

  • Chipdip

    Nick is going to the same business tonight

  • John Lee

    Price player of the game for Denver.

  • roberlin

    thank god LIN IS IN!

  • CaliUSMC

    BOOM

  • JC

    daydreaming his elite pg taking over the game

  • Maknusia

    Lin is IN

  • Chipdip

    Nugget is going to play 5 on Lin

  • KHuang

    Scott is doing exactly what we Lin fans here have been criticizing him for – benching Lin so that Ronnie Price can stink up the game.

  • John Lee

    Mitch currently having second thought about no immediate roster changes…

  • CaliUSMC

    Denvers Subway Sub of the Game – Ronnie Price

  • Brent Yen

    Lin recognize mismatch so quickly.

  • Maknusia

    I’m happy you got this wrong! 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    ha you lying

  • roberlin

    more like sub ZERO of the game.

  • Weifang

    Lin is in for D, and D only

  • Maknusia

    come on make those 3s

  • Maknusia

    Oh Man!!! everyone is missing the 3s

  • Maknusia

    Come LIN make the FT

  • Promo Sports World

    Those Kobe ISO must be fun

  • GoodDayLA

    ft?

  • Alaingrvis

    threes are off today i say mid range or drive

  • occupatio

    if it were carlisle’s team, ellington would have swung the ball to lin for the 3

  • sws94

    Time for a run or this could be an L.

  • Weifang

    I bet Lin will make next 3!!!!

  • roberlin

    The flow of the game is so bad. No team has any real momentum going. We need some Linsanity to win this game.

  • GoodDayLA

    the question is why?

  • BuzzerBeater

    yes pls stop shooting those today, dont lower your pretty 3pt FG% lol
    More mid-range!

  • dons

    Start shooting closer in for 2’s!!!!!!!! Way too many 3’s, when most are not really good 3-pt shooters. Easy way out. Only Kobe and can get into the paint? 3-20 on 3-ptrs

  • Rick Johnson

    Scott plays him too many minutes in earlier quarters. Legs tired by 4th and his FG% drops.

  • Alaingrvis

    if we lose i think scott waited too long. let the bench kill our momentum

  • Promo Sports World

    Cheerleaders are game

  • sws94

    More Linsanity, we had some in the 3rd.

  • occupatio

    the arc on lin’s 3 was even higher than usual

  • Promo Sports World

    Lawson assists are insane

  • wow, Lawson missed 2 FTs

  • Rick Johnson

    Wasted so many minutes with Price. Jeremy would have had them blown out and we’d be playing garbage time now.

  • That’s such a horrible shot that Kobe took

  • John Lee

    He has a coach with no hidden agenda.

  • CaliUSMC

    All his shots hav been short.

  • GoodDayLA

    lin must ballhog alittle withot being obvious

  • Maknusia

    LOL…keep it for future then

  • Promo Sports World

    Glad he shot that

  • He would have 4asts if Kobe is in DEN uniform

  • GoodDayLA

    such a selfish Lakeer team

  • Maknusia

    if only JL could hear you

  • GoodDayLA

    KEEP BALL HOGGI LIN

  • Lin fastbreak leading to assist to Wes’ JAM!

  • BuzzerBeater

    WESLEY THE GOAT IS BACK

  • CaliUSMC

    Johnson the 4th quarter hero. lol

  • Promo Sports World

    wow

  • Promo Sports World

    Gallo once again poster

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yow, Wesley… if you want to get your points, you SHOULD know who to look for

  • Alaingrvis

    omg

  • Maknusia

    Good dunk…keep it going!

  • roberlin

    Did you see the reaction from the LA bench for that dunk? WOOOOWW!!

  • GoodDayLA

    lin must get rebounds and steals to get the ball. otherwise Kobe will ballhog in half court

  • 311

    That’s how you run a break!

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    haha… ok you are forgiven for now.

  • sport

    sick dunk by wes great ast by jlin!!

  • roberlin

    Who was the other player that posterized Mosgov? OH yeah, it was Blake Griffin.

  • Chipdip

    Love it!

  • Maknusia

    finally

  • Alaingrvis

    oohh yea blake griffin 3 years ago lol

  • Michael

    That actually looked like a fast break…

  • GoodDayLA

    totally

  • 311

    At the beginning of the season I expected to see a lot more of those type of plays with Lin to Wesley, and even alley oops. Surprised there’s been so little of those.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    A fastbreak that is actually fast.

  • sport

    Loved it! Posterized!

  • Maknusia

    true 🙂

  • What a well-timed pass by Lin to Wes on the chest for the JAM!

    Beautiful fastbreak :]

  • blubell

    Loved Sacre and Clarkson’s reaction 🙂
    That’s how you cheer for your team!

  • Maknusia

    true…i thought he would be Parsons replacement, for jeremy’s game

  • GoodDayLA

    i like to think Scott wont play Lin apart from Kobe is because Scott KNOWS Linsanity may happen. ANd it Cannot happen with Kobe there.

  • Promo Sports World

    In spite of Kobe

  • wow .. Kobe didn’t pass at all in that one bad possession

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe pass Jesus

  • Maknusia

    i havent to come to that conclusion yet…lets see

  • Rick Johnson

    Scott playing Price so much is exposing him as a scrub. Instead of helping he’s going to cause Mitch to cut him for another PG.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Kobe ISOs to infinity and beyond

  • Maknusia

    2 misses in a row in..pass

  • As predicted, 4th quarter is “Black Mamba Fighting Crime by Himself!”

  • roberlin

    and beyond and beyond . . . snore. zzzzzzzzzzz

  • JT

    lin will only get the ball on fast breaks now..

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe’s chucking going to lose them the game.

  • Denver is so bad in FTs it’s funny

  • Maknusia

    everything he sees, seem to be a crime

  • Great possession with Lin’s penetration to Kobe to Hill!
    Announcers noticed that

  • GoodDayLA

    denver is also a bad team. If they were any good, Lakerrs wold be down by 20. I am not fooling myself abou that

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hill should have dunked that

  • 311

    Finally some good team ball.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You seriously need to try calming down. We get it. No need to rub it in our faces.

  • Maknusia

    come D guys

  • SamC89

    Kobe’s tired, all his shots are short. He really should have passed.

  • JC

    Omg kobe

  • Maknusia

    will BScott come with any plays?

  • GoodDayLA

    lol i am so right I am not backing down from you on that statement.

  • Kobe’s ISO is … *sigh*

  • roberlin

    Bad, bad Kobe. Sick of that iso crap.

  • occupatio

    just like houston in 4th..

  • Promo Sports World

    This is crazy to watch the selfish play at this stage of his career is crazy

  • cshot

    kobe? does he know how to play basketball?

  • BuzzerBeater

    Finally gonna switch it up a bit and call …. a KOBE ISO.

  • GoodDayLA

    lakers love it

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe iso killing us if we lose its his fault

  • Maknusia

    hahaha…but but they have more Wins compared to LAL

  • Weifang

    I am amazed by how much Kobe is willing to sacrifice.

  • Chipdip

    shame on Koby …shame…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    And you’re going to rub it in our faces to make you happy? Seriously you’re trollish now.

  • sport

    Kobe back to back iso fails surprise surprise. Better hope Nuggets don’t make their shot!

  • LAJane

    Kobe does the crime, and then gets to fight it too. Has his cake AND eats it…

  • Michael

    The ball moved a lot….vertically.

  • GoodDayLA

    Scott is totally executing his plan. I have figured him out. He wants close games with Kobe making or breakig the outcome at the end.

  • SamC89

    Or maybe they should so Kobe can “learn” that he’s not the same player he is anymore. Sigh….

    At least if they do make it the Lakers will still have some time.

  • Promo Sports World

    Insane to see the ISO at 36

  • Kobe 6/10 in the 1st three quarters.
    Only 3/10 in the 4th quarter

    Crime-Fighting is not working well tonight

  • sport

    Only 30 seconds left with Nuggets ball, Laker better play the best D of their lives! Losing to this scrub team would be embarrassing!!

  • GoodDayLA

    i was just expressing frustration at how bad LAkers really are. and you told me to calm down unecessarily for no good reason.

  • Bearness

    More like back to back to back to back to back to back isos for whole 4th quarter.

  • CaliUSMC

    Robert Sacre = new Mark Madsen

  • Maknusia

    oh man!

  • Michael

    No wonder Lin’s back is bothering him

  • John Lee

    The Lakers are not that bad, it’s the coach.

  • That’s all BALL

  • Promo Sports World

    Poor call

  • roberlin

    OT is coming, lol

  • Maknusia

    yeah…@bearness the culprit?!! LOL

  • CaliUSMC

    99% Kobe will Iso and miss

  • GoodDayLA

    well i get that but he coach controls who plays and how and when unls FO steps in

  • wow, Gallinari with missed 2nd FT 86-86

  • IsabeliJane*17

    See your posts.I never saw you celebrate anything good Jeremy has done but just spew complains left and right.

  • Promo Sports World

    Stu nick young is cold let Jeremy win it

  • cshot

    that bs call

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    this is time for some Linsanity

  • Alaingrvis

    if we are lucky

  • there’s 99.99% chance Kobe will fight crime with a buzzer-beater!

  • dons

    Time for LIN!

  • JC

    Time for kobe to save*the team with is heriso ball

  • sport

    Prediction: Kobe iso brick for last 15 seconds? ><"

  • 311

    Lakers lucky Denver has been shooting horribly all night.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Fight crime – new word for ISOs? lol

  • occupatio

    lame lame game even if they win

  • Chipdip

    Kobe will keep the ball to himself

  • John Lee

    Save which team?

  • sport

    After he killed them with the iso, SMH!

  • Maknusia

    yeah…they are seriously OFF on FTs

  • JC

    Make that 100%

  • Maknusia

    Kobe misses again

  • roberlin

    so freakin obvious.

  • KHuang

    3/10 is good shooting by Bryant 4th quarter standards.

  • occupatio

    so so lame

  • IsabeliJane*17

    There were four open Lakers…

  • BuzzerBeater

    Disgusting to watch.

  • Maknusia

    OT?!!!

  • blubell

    surprise surprise

  • Bearness

    I’m not the culprit, just keeping it real. LOL

  • dons

    what ever happened to shooting 2’s, or even contested 2’s to get a foul shot?

  • Chipdip

    As expected… kobe brick and OT now

  • sport

    .3 seconds remaining if Nuggets makes a clutch oh my….Lets hope for OT instead!

  • roberlin

    how deflating.

  • Maknusia

    That shot from Kobe…definitely was on the COACH! smh

  • Maknusia

    phew TO

  • roberlin

    no kobe, please, no kobe.

  • JC

    Hate the superstar crap, it’s just so obvious whose going to shoot the ball, I mean can’t the nba come up with a different plot?? So boring

  • occupatio

    rofl

  • Maknusia

    Lets see Scott makes the same mistake again?!

  • blubell

    wow

  • Maknusia

    he should try once in a while to see the reaction..lol

  • occupatio

    byron doesnt have the balls to not give it to kobe

  • dons

    Holly smokes, I see BS drawing up a play

  • sport

    wow now Lakers have the last shot, Lin for the win?

  • Maknusia

    Nyoung missed…but glad it was him rather than Kobe…

    OK, BScott is not that foolish/bias after all

  • blubell

    OT

  • Chipdip

    He drew how to get the ball to Koby

  • JC

    Let kobe brick it, that’s the play

  • IsabeliJane*17

    5 minutes OT… put in Jeremy BS if you want to win this.

  • roberlin

    should have been Lin, lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    ot. lets hope more then iso kobe

  • John Lee

    Sure, give it to Swaggy. He’s got the hot hand today. SMH

  • Weifang

    wow that was the plan for the last shot?? my goodness, give the whiteboard to LIn.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol who else

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe 0-5 in last 5 shot’s. So obviously he will take all the shots in OT.

  • he’ll get jail time LOL

  • sport

    OT and JLin has 4 fouls already =/

  • occupatio

    does kobe hog the ball more at staples center than road games? maybe its some crowd pleasing thing.

  • Alaingrvis

    it wasn’t saw lin kobe moving to set a play screen

  • Bearness

    Obviously.

  • Chipdip

    Hope Jeremy will get some assists and points in OT

  • Maknusia

    i know…but Young taking that shot…atleast for now it confirms somewhat, Scott is not all Kobe

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    if he is getting closer to jail time, then why not 🙂

  • roberlin

    LOL

  • KHuang

    NO WAY.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lundberg.. really? Stop putting my LOF to shame!

  • Maknusia

    and he could just play naive, saying ” Kobe asked me not to pass to him”

  • Michael

    At least he is consistent with his misses.

  • blubell

    39 min for kobe… another 5 coming up

  • Bearness

    It’s all about consistency. Isn’t that what they tell Jeremy?

  • Maknusia

    if @Michael:disqus says that, then must be true…he sees everything from him sleep

  • Lin with a GREAT Steal!

  • CaliUSMC

    Lawson with 5fls

  • Maknusia

    finally LIN

  • GoodDayLA

    yes lin starting to just ball hog. good.

  • Lin with the jumpshot! 😀

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That’s my man…J-j Jeremy jumper

  • Maknusia

    Lets keep the LEAD now

  • John Lee

    Awesome, Kobe will get an extra chuck!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin be careful

  • Lin can’t afford to foul now. 5 fouls

  • Maknusia

    Oh MAN…whats going on on the darn 3s

  • Chipdip

    Yes sir!

  • GoodDayLA

    just ball hog LIN

  • Great attempt at 3 by Lin

  • phew.. Lin drew the foul 😀

  • GoodDayLA

    BALL HOG WITH EVEN MORE CONVICTION LIN! DONT BE ARAID TO HOG

  • Maknusia

    missing FTs?!!!

  • BuzzerBeater

    JereME Lin, yess keep shooting it! hehe

  • IsabeliJane*17

    huh missed Fts?

  • CaliUSMC

    Lins 3pt and Ft % will go down after this game :/

  • Rick Johnson

    This game so frustrating.

  • Maknusia

    they should reset the fouls at OT

  • occupatio

    damn both fts

  • sws94

    Lin must be tired, usually money from the FT line.

  • very unusual..

  • Dan Cohen

    there goes the 50 40 90

  • Maknusia

    Kobe made it

  • Alaingrvis

    this game is weird people missing shots they never miss before its ok though

  • Maknusia

    Body switch with Kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    lol its normal he will be hot next game of others

  • BuzzerBeater

    he hasnt played that many min, then again, he’s playing incredible defense on Lawson all game, that takes a lot of energy.

  • occupatio

    god damnit

  • JC

    Lakers will lose the game by 5 points

  • Maknusia

    they outta nail it now!

  • GoodDayLA

    i prdict lakers will WIN this game still.

  • Wes Johnson couldn’t contain Galinari twice now

  • Maknusia

    thanks for the confidence

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Nuggets mismatching Jeremy to bait him to foul out…

  • sport

    Not yet at least not until JLin hits a 3 for his 20 point game!

  • sws94

    I didn’t think he’d make those numbers. It’s very hard to.

  • John Lee

    BS and Kobe are better at hole-digging than the rest of the Lakers are at climbing out.

  • JC

    Why do they need timeout, I can’t see hey could come up with a different play other than having Kobe forcing the shot over 3 defenders!

  • BuzzerBeater

    If they’re gonna lose, please lose by 3+ points or Jeremy will beat himself up over those missed FTs.

  • I really hope so. They need to get a quick 2pt

  • GoodDayLA

    u are selective in what you see

  • Alaingrvis

    relax

  • blubell

    Let’s go Jeremy!

  • BuzzerBeater

    I am..? lol

  • sport

    Dude you’re blaming him before the game is even over, chill!

  • Come on Lakers, 2pt. Play D!!

  • Maknusia

    Good one Kobe

  • Maknusia

    come ON need D

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dang that 5th foul! Now Jeremy can’t play physical D against Ty!

  • BuzzerBeater

    how on earth did I blame him?
    If anything I blame the Kobe ISOs, I said JEREMY would blame HIMSELF, you know how he is and he’s played great today.

  • Maknusia

    Lin out

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Because you really DON’T. I’m not selective.

  • Alaingrvis

    he has to so he don’t get a foul

  • Dan Cohen

    and also they been killing it on him.

  • sws94

    Lin has played some really good D on Lawson. Only thing he didn’t have tonight was his 3 point shot and for some reason, missed 2 FT.

  • They need 3pt shooters. Lin 0-4 tonight, Nick made 1 and Kobe’s in by default

  • sport

    Lin can’t defend with 5 fouls, better to leave him out until final seconds or Double OT!

  • Maknusia

    true….

  • Alaingrvis

    because of the foul trouble

  • true, not his night on 3s

  • sport

    Interesting shows BS doesn’t trust Golden Boy Price at all, puts in Ellington for Lin instead. At least he’s not crazy lol.

  • Maknusia

    ok folks…enough please please…this is going no where

  • let’s hope for a double-OT

  • Brent Yen

    PPL are gonna pin the loss on Lin’s 2 FTs

  • Alaingrvis

    relax

  • roberlin

    nah.

  • Alaingrvis

    this isnt rox

  • Maknusia

    4pt diff

  • John Lee

    Right. Never mind Kobe’s five straight misses in clutch time.

  • Rick Johnson

    Game was lost when Scott took Lin out for Price in the 3rd quarter when Lin was getting hot. Would have been garbage time instead of overtime.

  • Maknusia

    lol….wake up

  • BuzzerBeater

    Coach Scott already looking at Kobe and drawing up another ISO, oh lord lol
    Draw up a 3 for Ellington, use some creativity, goodness.

  • let’s be ready with Kobe 1-10 FG (or something like that) in the 4th quarter

  • GoodDayLA

    not me!

    1. bad coaching
    2. Kobe ball hogging badly

    3. Lin handcuffed in usage.

  • Maknusia

    there goes….

  • CaliUSMC

    Walking Dead Time!

  • occupatio

    what a waste of time following that game

  • SamC89

    The people that don’t like Lin will. But I think most people will blame this on a team loss. While those of us that really watched the game will know it was a Kobe-in-the-4th loss. Besides, they’re losing by 4 so even if Lin did make those 2 FTs they would have still lost.

  • joyce ward
  • Maknusia

    and Lin’s bad 3s

  • Alaingrvis

    the game was weird hot cold all day so idk still lin should of been back earlier

  • roberlin

    game over. Good game by Lin.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Game ovah.

  • sport

    Losing to a scrub team like this, may goodness SMH!

  • Lin didn’t play his best tonight but the game was lost in the 4th quarter when Kobe took bad shots (1-10 FG?)
    Announcers noted that discrepancy after Kobe going 6-10 in the first 3 quarters.

  • Alaingrvis

    iso kobe killed us. young needs to play better

  • Maknusia

    they have more wins compared to LAL, how could you call that scrub?

  • Rick Johnson

    Many games they’ve lost was from Kobe taking all the 4th quarter shots.

  • Alaingrvis

    3-11 he was 6-10 before that

  • Maknusia

    Thats on Scott and Kobe since he is a veteran, he should know better

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Imo he played well tonight. Used his midrange game to death while bottling up Lawson. The only missing are the 3s and some missed FTs.

  • thanks, I corrected it after seeing Kevin Ding’s tweet

  • JT

    BS pisses me off, such a crappy coaching job

  • GoodDayLA

    100% scott

  • blubell
  • JC

    Damn by 7!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Okay now comes the TWC coverup job. They aren’t going to blame this on Kobe high volume low output shooting in the 4th.

  • Alaingrvis

    i remember two the clipper game with this

  • Maknusia

    well, at least it was a fun close game, not a blowout, will take that…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Too bad, they could have killed the Nuggets using J-Ed PnR to death.

  • yeah, a mixed game since Lin has been so good in his 3s and FT%
    Byron’s sitting Lin out for 7-8 min (20 min real time?) between Q1 and Q2 didn’t help

  • Alaingrvis

    ohh yea phenix as well

  • GoodDayLA

    horrible use of players, minutes, and subbing

  • Alaingrvis

    anyone has the link

  • Briiick

    Kobe had done better earlier facilitating his teammates. But in the 4th quarter Kobe was forcing things.

  • 311
  • Alaingrvis

    thx

  • Lakers only shot 11 pts in the 4th quarter
    Lin scored 11 pts by himself in the 3rd quarter

  • JC

    ESPN: lakers lost to Denver despite Kobe’s 27!

  • blubell
  • Worthy: “I would let the ball on Lin’s hands more in the 4th”

  • 311

    Worthy saying he wished the ball was in Lin’s hands more.

  • Maknusia

    A little of Clarkson would have been good

  • John Lee

    Amen!!!

  • MoominFloren

    I miss the game….how is Jeremy?

  • Maknusia

    Thats Kobe…on his usual mode

  • SamC89

    Damn, I was so sure at the beginning of the season that the Lakers might be able to slip into the 8th seed. But with the way they’re playing, looks like they’ll miss the playoffs for sure.

    The only good thing is so far Lin had done quite well with his current situation. And I’m sure if he can see it, then other teams can as well since they analyze this for a living. I think the Lakers will try to keep him, but I also feel the Mavs will try to make a run for him as well.

    I know it’s still early in the season, but I don’t see them making it far as “a team” so now I’m just going to root for Jeremy to keep his stats up and showcase for his next contract.

  • Maknusia

    nah…they would be lucky to get 30 WINS

  • GoodDayLA

    noteven needed, just need lin with bal in 4th quARTER

  • John Lee

    Lazy even by stat-watcher standard.

  • Maknusia

    Double that!

  • Weifang

    AC Green said “give to kobe” is okay, others need to move around not to freeze. wow, wow, wow. What a great analysis!!!!

  • BuzzerBeater

    17pts with 5asts and GREAT defense on Lawson all game.
    He gets a solid A- from me.
    He was too tentative in the 1st half, but picked it up in the 3rdQ.

  • Maknusia

    it was a low scoring night

  • GoodDayLA

    JLIN MUST not resign in la. and im in la and i want to watch him live. but i want hm to suceed. la with kobe is not right for him. career killer

  • Maknusia

    wow… 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe waited too long if he didn’t freeze out his team for a whole quarter they would have a rhythm.. even when lin scored in over time it was iso. players was watching him like they did kobe

  • Michael

    Lin did not play well that’s what you get.

  • GoodDayLA

    i know so dumb. why move when kobe wont ever pass lol. thatswhy noboduy moves!

  • sport

    LA not going anywhere until Kobe the ball hog retires.

  • Acbc

    To Linfinity and beyond!

  • GoodDayLA

    team is way too selfish

  • Alaingrvis

    agreed

  • John Lee

    Fourth time losing a winnable game, after Suns (Nov 4), Grizzlies and Pelicans. And I ain’t even counting the Clippers game.

    Only positive about this loss is that BS inching closer to dismissal.

  • GoodDayLA

    yea.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Alaingrvis

    i agree

  • sport

    Lin’s 3 pointers were off tonight with 2 bad TOs but I’m glad he was assertive and made 15 FGAs including OT with 17 points. He never stopped shooting.

  • Skwo

    Never understood the “kobe’s teammates need to move without the ball” argument. Kobe wants an iso. In other words, he wants people to stay away so he can chuck up a shot. Why do these “analysts” always blame the teammates?

  • sport

    That’ is if Lakers aren’t really tanking but I bet they are! If they weren’t tanking BS would’ve been outed by now!

  • jolno

    Because telling the truth (blaming Kobe) might cost them their jobs?

  • GoodDayLA

    100% on coach Scoot for that

  • blubell

    BScot likes to blame all of his players not named Kobe

  • John Lee

    Even when teammates shoot 60%+ they get the blame (Dallas). THAT is the real crime.

  • Alaingrvis

    the iso was so unbelievable young gave kobe that really look. like ……reallly

  • JC

    give him a break, every gp going to have a bad TO or 2, do we have to keep emphasizing his TO of the game?

  • Alaingrvis

    thats saying a lot given young love to iso as well

  • sport

    Two single digit games by Nick Young now. Looks like scouting reports are doing their work =/ Lakers really needed his 16-17 point game. If Swaggy was on fire, Lakers would’ve easily won this without OT. Against this team with gazillion bricks, they should’ve won yet they struggled.

  • JC

    they should all move back to the other side of the court to get ready to defend

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    kobe plays pg all 4th quarter as well i hate that so its 50/50 till the 4th

  • John Lee

    Swaggy forgot to pack his swag, left it in Dallas.

  • JC

    rofl, he’s pointing at LIN, my goodness

  • sport

    I bet even Swaggy is fed up with Kobe’s iso the team to death mentality. Bet he misses last season when Kobe was out with injury.

  • Michael

    Missed freethrows? Might as well just say Lin.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • sadly it’s true. 2 more years of this ‘Kobe performance art’ is bad for Lin’s career if he stays

  • John Lee

    I knew it! Never mind that without Kobe’s five straight misses the FTs wouldn’t even be needed.

  • JC

    total BS

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    yea he hasn’t played with kobe so its his first time. young was open 3-4 times. pass it so he gets going kobe.

  • 311

    Wow, Ty Lawson with 16 dimes. Dang…

  • JC

    I guess he’s always covering him, smh

  • GoodDayLA

    lol scott says team got great open looks at shots and there is no offense issue lol

  • Weifang

    great game analysis again! wow, they are so genius !

  • John Lee

    No BS, you need to play Kobe 44+ minutes every game.

  • blubell

    MOre than the Lakers team total. smh

  • sport

    Kobe was fatigue yet you’re still allowing him to play long minutes?! Lin and Kobe’s minutes should be switched then this team will start winning!

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Well…….what can we say?

  • khomphuong2

    Brick Young update: 36.4% from the field, 46.9% true shooting. Dude had better buy D'Antoni a Ferrari for Christmas.— Gary Collard (@LakerGMC) November 24, 2014

  • spiderman

    Byron Scott needs to go

  • MoominFloren

    thx

  • Michael

    I do agree Lin is responsible for hitting his free throws. He rushed them a bit. But just don’t single him out like that. Even if he did, you’re still down by two.

  • blubell
  • 311

    Scott says Lin made big shots, good defensive plays. He’s solid, but got in a bit of trouble in first half.

  • Maknusia

    TO is fine, but as a PG one need to back it up with AST, else his ratio is gonna look bad

  • Alaingrvis

    ha

  • GoodDayLA

    thats true. it sounds like comments you make when tanking.

  • John Lee

    Best Lakers defense: BS pointing fingers to cover own skin.

  • sport

    Right and it had nothing to do with Kobe’s 0-5 bricks in 4th quarter to kill the team!! BS you are so full of BS!! As a coach he has the responsibility to tell Kobe off.

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Many Lakers missed ft tonight

  • John Lee

    It’s ok, we all got them organs called eyes.

  • Maknusia

    there is no single play or player who lost this game. Its on the team and Coach

  • Skwo

    I am dumbfounded

  • Alaingrvis

    if davis can stay out of foul trouble

  • 311

    Same old story, sigh. This game was totally winnable.

  • Michael

    Team means the other four player, got great open shots but didn’t hit them. He who may not be named is a singularity.

  • Chipdip

    Koby can do no wrong… we know that

  • joyce ward

    Please give me a break.If you are going to post,post intelligent basketball comments…smh

  • Brent Yen

    6 fouls in 22 minutes…..is not really good

  • SamC89

    A new coach will not be able to change things. Kobe is the coach.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Tanking issue coming up again? Seriously? How about they just have a bad coach, period.

  • Alaingrvis

    he lasted longer as a back up

  • blubell
  • JC

    not a coach would blame himself for setting up a bad ‘play’ or actually for not setting up any play

  • Bearness

    I hope he doesn’t stay as a Laker. Already wasted 2 years in Harden-iso land. No need to spend 2 years in Kobe-iso land.

  • nodomo

    Looks to me all of Kobe’s shots in the 4Q were not open looks..more like forced shots while double teamed

  • joyce ward

    I don’t think so…so just quit trying to drum up drama where there is none…smh

  • sport

    How about stopping Kobe from iso bricking, make team plays so he’d be open and teams can prepare for rebounds.

  • blubell
  • Michael

    Lin lost the game because he fouled too much in the first quarter. (Added to the BS list of reasons why we lost the game)

  • Alaingrvis

    ooh no

  • JT

    missed fts= Lin…so damn obvious

  • sport

    Well those comments on Lin were fair, Lin did struggle in first half with some bad TOs and missed shots.

  • Alaingrvis

    he had 2 in first half. i think its about the TO

  • JC

    didn’t mean to, I apologize if I make anyone feel that way

  • blubell
  • Michael

    I don’t see the problem, he is much more consistent than Lin. His stats are like ______________________.(flat lining)…

  • PPP

    0 assists

  • His 3P% was 17% before this game.
    Wow. I wonder what it is now

  • SamC89

    Yeah, this makes a lot of sense.

  • joyce ward

    Stop the madness…smh

  • GoodDayLA

    uh oh KObe turning on Lin slowly bt ut surely. Lin starting to score and look better, Kobe says Lawson killed them with paint penetration (Lins fault basically)

  • Alaingrvis

    also everyone else

  • Alaingrvis

    by shooting too much

  • joyce ward

    Stop the madness comments….smh

  • JT

    sooo….he’s saying he didn’t shoot enough in the 3rd quarter, and Lin should’ve taken less shots

  • khomphuong2

    Surprised.. not

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    thats true in a way…

    many players, had uncontested shots, but were not able to make

  • sws94

    That’s fair.

  • John Lee

    I’m waiting for FO intervention…it can’t be far off.

  • sws94

    No.

  • Alaingrvis

    he had some fault. he did better then price. i thought the bigs over help lin had it guarded well

  • GoodDayLA

    AC SEEMS TO BE A PAID TWC HACK TONIGHT. TONIGHT WORTHY A LIN SUPPORTER and says Lin shoul hav more ball. To take away from Kobe. Maybe the just paid to cause drama.

  • joyce ward

    Stop your drama too. Always with the negative comments

  • Rick Johnson

    Getting too obvious to deny anymore. Coach Miller will deny it though. “You want the ball in your superstars hand in the end”

  • Maknusia

    why are we interpreting things, when the facts are not there

  • joyce ward

    Lin played excellent defense on lawson, he is talking about price, that is who he scored his points.Scott even said lin played good defense.

  • JT

    ? we’ve been doing it for years, starting from NY to when he was in Houston. This isn’t anything new.

  • Maknusia

    there was alot of uncontested shot, that was not falling for the team…

  • sws94

    Summary of what Worthy is saying about Lin?

  • Maknusia

    lol…true…i know we are frustrated, but that shouldn’t blind our judgement

  • Alaingrvis

    yea something happen with those assist though. i think they over helped lin.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Worthy said ball should’ve been in Lin’s hands more, go away from Kobe more!

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin plays better defense coordinating with Davis. Scott wasted too many Davis minutes with Price ended up fouling out.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This sounds like some bait post.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    that was quick!

  • joyce ward

    Exactly that is why posted to stop the madness

  • PPP

    Im lucky i didnt bet on the over, phew.

  • spiderman

    Way too hard on himself

  • Skwo

    Expected comment. Classy as usual

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    No bait posts allowed

  • Rick Johnson

    Those were wasted minutes. Lin would have been building a lead up with that time. Denver was cold at that time, missing everything but then so were the Price lead Lakers.

  • sport

    JLin can’t be too hard on himself, Kobe clearly loss the game for the team with all those bricks and iso in 4th quarter! His 3s does need to be more consistent and were way off this game but he was assertive with his mid range jumpers and got to the rim with and 1 against 2 defenders.

  • Maknusia

    @GoodDayLA:disqus this is an official warning, further similar posting will be deleted and te next cause of action would be ban

  • Maknusia

    i was looking at the number, last couple of weeks, and with the current lineup and they way they play, I dont see getting much up there, unless they go into Linsanity Mode

  • Maknusia

    it happens, so I dont think i will go hard on him 🙂

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    true. Lin was out too long on first half and as soon as he came in, he had Lawson under contained.

  • JT

    ed davis starting helped…It will revert back when Boozer returns

  • blubell
  • jolno

    Made this using Microsoft Paint LOL.

  • BuzzerBeater

    There it is, Jeremy said those FTs will be all he thinks about.
    I said it earlier, I knew he was gonna beat himself up over them.
    WHich he shouldnt cuz he played great and it not like they lost by 2 😛

  • Alaingrvis

    well price played 17 minutes. it aint a lot. i saw release him get a better back up

  • CJSHYY
  • sport

    Not happening unless BS gets fired which I hope ASAP!

  • Alaingrvis

    he will move on from it. he has been through worse

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    yep good job young say it loud say it proud lol

  • John Lee

    17 min is a LOT if compared to Nate’s 10.

  • Lam

    What’s wrong with his post? Kobe didn’t say it?

  • CaliUSMC

    LIN – 14GP (31MINS) – 12.14pts / 4.9asts / 2.7rebs / 0.9stls / 0.4blks / 2.9to / 47FG% / 39%3PT / 87%FT

  • Chipdip

    Yes… share the ball…share…Kobe…share!

  • Rick Johnson

    They should have played Clarkson then. At least he can hit the 3.

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson struggles with the playbook. he gets lost a lot.

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Yep. After that dunk they went into Kobe ISO mode.

  • John Lee

    Start looking for new contract, Nick “just sharing the ball” Young…

  • Alaingrvis

    lol did i say young looked at kobe like… really though

  • joyce ward

    yep because kobe had to shine

  • Alaingrvis

    he will be at 15 ppg by end of season.

  • MoominFloren

    i love robin haha

  • John Lee

    Yup, that 3-11 records shines so bright it’s blinding!

  • joyce ward

    Scott is going to have a mutiny on his hand if doesn’t police up kobe. I am glad lin got his stats.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Nope. Poster sounds like some Kobe hater trying to stir in so people will hate Kobe more, not that Kobe actually needs it lol

  • Alaingrvis

    he is signed long term.

  • Maknusia

    Hope to see higher than that…its still early to predict, havent reach 20 games yet

  • blubell

    Not as bad as I thought it would be. 50/40/90 is still a possibility.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    minutes ain’t bad
    points ain’t bad
    assists ain’t bad

  • New PostGame thread
    My Lin grade is B+
    Brent and @real-dsb can add more later if they have a chance

    http://www.jlinportal.com/g14-den-lal-postgame-thread/

  • Alaingrvis

    thats a low ball number. set expectation low lol be surprised if he does better then that

  • joyce ward

    I agree, i think lin is finally getting it. The 3rd quarters points were all his…LOL

  • blubell

    First Boozer and now his beloved Nick Young. Mutiny is abrewing.

  • JoeTeam

    his 3rd quarter was Lionsanity. The it was kobe ball.

  • Acbc

    It’s already happening.

  • very true. He needs to find a team that will allow him to play his best as the true PG and with the right teammates

  • sport

    It can certainly be motivation for Lin to practice harder on his 3s which were way off tonight and his FTs even more to keep that 90%

  • John Lee

    I know, just poking fun with 2Pat reference.

  • yeah, Price didn’t deserve PT with 0pts in multiple games.

  • Alaingrvis

    first attack lin all year meaning attack often. he usually would score on and say ok I’m done. today it was I’m getting mines over and over and ……..

  • Alaingrvis

    lol gotcha

  • sport

    Hoping for 18-20 PPG average for the season! Lin finally getting it and kept shooing the ball this game even when he missed shots!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol that would be great but still 15 close to 50 40 90. would get a pretty good contract

  • grover chang

    I feel there were at least two more games with this feeling of Kobe ruining it at the end. Lakers could be 6 – 8

  • JC

    definitely not trying to draw up drama, Lin had been unfairly treated by his coach in Houston, I just don’t like him being treated the same in LA, I guess I read too much into what Scott meant when he said the game was lost because of missed FT. Jeremy did great, and there’s no way anybody would come up with a reason to blame Jeremy for the lost game, no one is perfect, yes Jeremy missed 2 FTs during crunch time, but his contribution toward the team is more than enough to out-weight those 2 FTs, even if he made both of the FTs, the game will most likely be lost too because Kobe is going to take those shots anyway and there’s a high chance he would miss.
    I got carried away from posting my thoughts on the sports forum, oh well gotta find a better way to enjoy my off day!

  • JC

    thought it was 48.1%FG on espn before this game, he shot 8/15 tonight, the FG% should go up, why is it just 47% now?

  • Maknusia

    LOL, they are hard to come by

  • yes, very hard indeed :>

  • sport

    18/20PPG with 50,40,90 club would be most impressive. XD

  • Maknusia

    but he needs to take enough shots to be called into the elite club as well, else it doesnt count

  • deesee5

    I didn’t see the game. Was he really that great on D?? I see Lawson got 18pts and 16ast.

  • deesee5

    Just listened to PFV’s vid. Seems he did well on Ty.

  • BuzzerBeater

    He was great, Lawson must’ve scored just once on him.
    All the other points were the few times they switched or someone else picked Lawson up during a fastbreak and Lawson easily scored on every possession where Jeremy wasnt defending him.
    It sucked because Ty could not attack or get past Lin so he’d just dump it to someone else and they’d all score because the other Lakers’ defense sucked.
    Jeremy kept wasting all his energy for nothing 🙁

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He continues to bury his head in the sand.
