G14 SAC @CHA Game Thread

With PJ Hairston and Cody Zeller back,:

  1. would Jeremy Lin go back to energize the 2nd unit?
  2. Or will Coach Clifford continue to experiment how to utilize Jeremy Lin to help starters build a lead.. but at the same time conserve his energy to power the 2nd unit that seemed unable to sustain great ball movement without his playmaking?

With 3 consecutive games of averaging 28min/game, Coach Clifford seemed to know that inserting Jeremy Lin in the starters or bench unit would greatly facilitate ball movement and spacing necessary to get open shots and build lead. But managing his minutes while playing great defense and helping with rebounding is no easy task; it’s very taxing to the legs and stamina. That’s why great offensive players like Harden and Kobe don’t always play defense to conserve their energy, too much to the detriment of their teams. Let’s go, JLin! Be your aggressive self & just play your game on matter what happens

Guess JLin's stats in Game 15 vs WAS
  • Linzen

    1st! Go Lin Go!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Flag. I’m first. Still disbelieve that they lost to the Knicks.

  • LinJa

    18pts 5 ast tonight

  • rookie75094

    4th….hehe

  • DX

    Yes, It definitely had the chance if Cliff do the right thing. But that was a lucky win when 1st time vs. Knicks. So should be OK.

  • Rick Johnson

    Hopefully JLin gets to run the PG position even if it is with the 2nd team. Keep hoping Handbrough gets some minutes, he looked good in 2 minutes of garbage time but I think he would go well with JLin. However with PJ and Zeller back it’s probably not likely unfortunately.

  • I hope so too. It’ll be nice to see JLin and Hansbrough running PnR with a lot of dunks.

    I don’t understand Clifford’s stubbornness. Hornets is ranked 26 out of 30 in Total Rebs/game.
    And he kept Hansbrough the rebounding monster on bench.

    Hopefully the experiment will start sooner than later.

  • 热情的lychee

    Go Hornets! Go Jeremy!

  • CJSHYY
  • real-dsb

    that’s creepy, like a memorial plate D:

  • KHuang

    With Kemba Walker being repeatedly broken down off the dribble in all 3 games against the Knicks, it’s no wonder that Charlotte’s big men are repeatedly pulled out of position to help Walker.

  • DX

    Who is the other guy?

  • spiderman

    Clifford should already be noticing this in practices and (and pre-season games.) For a coach who emphasizes defense, it is hard to figure out why he excludes an effective defensive (and offensive) rebounder.

  • KHuang

    Clifford thinks size means defense.

    That’s why Hairston starts over Lin and Lamb even though Hairston is not as quick or as strong or as productive as Lin or Lamb.

    Clifford thinks that Hansbrough is undersized, so Hansbrough doesn’t play.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Hans also set good screen for Lin. Don’t get why Cliff just never really let him played but trash time?!

  • David Kim

    Only 26th in Rebs? I thought one of the reason that Clifford wants big line up was rebounds. LOL

  • Linzen

    Too bad Podziller had a monster game, and killed our Godzeller.
    Let’s focus on the wins against Nets and 76ers :)))

  • Rick Johnson

    Rudy Gay

  • Linzen

    For once, I agree with you BS. The only thing we need to discuss is whom “the guys” are referring to.
    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/668896637524160512

  • DX

    Thank you. Never heard this Gay. :)

  • DX

    He means the guy fold arms?

  • real-dsb

    more sprints

  • real-dsb

    I’m predicting Hornets win today, Cousins or not.

  • Spot

    In times they say analitics matter we’ve got a coach who uses eye test

  • I am The Jason

    Hopefully Lin’s shooting slump ends tonight.

  • NONONO

    I am hoping Cliff put his best lineup to fight. He only used the best lineup to save the games so far.

  • Linzen

    Yeah folding arms while day dreaming is really comfortable.

  • Linzen
  • CJSHYY

    So, Hornets is going to play fast break tonight?!

  • sws94

    He’s a star player. Takes a lot of shots.

  • Linzen

    Nah not Hornets… only the 2nd unit. 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    Go to the Easter Conference thinking it would be easier:

    https://twitter.com/AlexKennedyNBA/status/668897586095476736

  • sws94

    Hairston is there to try not to get Batum, Lin or Lamb in foul trouble and Batum and Lin play less defense. It’s also he believes in having the Kemba/Al pairing and the Lin/Lamb pairing and having Batum get time in both units. Closing, it’s usually Lin.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! What’s wrong w EC this year? ….

  • sws94

    They’ve won 4 in a row. The Knicks are much improved, especially with Porzinges playing well.

  • NONONO

    Rockets (Harden’s hearts already in LA), Lakers (tanking as usually),Clippers (with overrated Jordan and Lance) are going down.

  • blubell

    Bzzz Buzz City!

  • KHuang

    The West is not strong like it was the last two seasons.

    Mismanagement and overpaying players have brought the West down.

    In the East, the only two teams that got better are NY and of course Charlotte.

    Charlotte is the only Eastern team that is SIGNIFICANTLY improved, mainly due to Lin changing conferences.

  • NONONO

    Should Hornets and Kings start the game with their 2nd units? Or, I hope one of teams switchs its bench to starting units. It could be fun.
    “These are two of the NBA’s highest scoring benches this year and they will be going head to head in this one. The Charlotte Hornets have the sixth highest scoring bench in the league with 39.2 points per game and they will be taking on the NBA’s third highest scoring bench in the Sacramento Kings who average 41.9 points per game.”

    http://swarmandsting.com/2015/11/23/the-charlotte-hornets-are-set-to-face-the-sacramento-kings-and-extend-their-winning-streak-to-three-games/

  • KHuang

    Mavs and Spurs have gaudy records but are not as good as they were the last few years, Portland was completely blown apart, New Orleans has been done in by Anthony Davis’s selfishness, and the Suns are surging because of all
    the ineptness around them despite having an inferior roster to last season.

  • KHuang

    If the Charlotte bench played just a few more minutes, they’d be #1.

  • Linzen

    Don’t fire him… Don’t fire him…
    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/668901751244718080

  • KHuang

    Clifford waxes poetic about Hairston’s size.

    It’s not Hairston’s game that is causing the adoration from Clifford.

  • DX

    Thanks, barely pay attention on other star players. ;D

  • DX

    Damn, it’s all because Lin.

  • NONONO

    Lin, Batum, Lamb, Hawes moved from WEST to EAST

  • wu kong

    “… we’re going to keep talking about it…” ha ha ha heard that before… Boozer on Byron last year

    ““In Chicago with Thibs, we drilled our defensive rotation every day,” Boozer said. “Every day. In the morning at shootaround, practice day – it’d obviously be a lot longer on the practice day. But every day, we drilled it to make sure we know where we were supposed to be at, what we were going to do.

    “[In LA] We talk about it a lot.””

    http://www.chatsports.com/los-angeles-lakers/a/Carlos-Boozer-Calls-Out-Byron-Scott-Says-Hes-All-Talk-7626

  • NONONO

    Just keep Brain out of 2 unit, Hornets would be #1.

  • Michael

    Go go Gadget…I mean hornets.

  • NONONO

    Kobe gave BS the coach job. BS wouldn’t say anything but good about Kobe.

  • Acbc

    When BS folds his arms, he looks like someone with constipation trying desperately do something about it, and not a coach trying to figure out a game plan.

    Scott has so much bull dodo that he depends on his Depends way too much to hold it in.

  • Michael

    mmm a coach with a star player mentality.

  • sws94

    This is going to be a tough game. The Hornets have no answers for Cousins but there’s also Koufos to deal with. Rondo is still good. Collison is a quality 2nd unit player. Then there is Belinelli and Casspi who can get hot hitting 3s. And Rudy Gay. This may end up being too much offense for the Hornets. Lamb and Lin are going to need to score as well as Kemba, Al and Batum. All may need to score in double figures to win this one. This team also plays fast, I don’t know if that helps the Hornets overall or not. It doesn’t help the first unit.

  • Linzen

    LOL! Wahahahaha

  • spiderman

    yeah stop using brain!
    lol

  • Linzen

    lol

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! More West players move to East this year…

  • Acbc

    When “team” has only 13 ast, and bench had 8 of them, no team can do well. Even Lebron or Curry can ISO like that and carry a team.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s what I said not sure Hornets can win or not…

  • NONONO

    Trade Paul with Rose.

  • Acbc

    Now we know why Clifford wants Lin to sag in from perimeter. Lin had 9 rebounds in recent game to lead the team.

  • CJSHYY

    It’s Kobe’s last year, Lakers will do anything to make Kobe happy. They will loss anyway…. So just take as many shots as he wish….LOL!

  • wu kong
  • wu kong
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    They have to excel to win. Nobody can tell how the Kings turn out to be on the court. They’re so inconsistent. Marcus Cousins is the key. If the team could get Cousins in early foul trouble, then the Hornets would stink the Kings. This is a game where Jeremy is important because he has to face Rondo, an excellent defender, and a legit and mobile center at the same time.
    It is almost a do and die situation for the Hornets. They have to play like a team to win.

  • CJSHYY

    I saw how King played vs Heat… they are good now even w/o Cousins.

  • sws94

    Lin will probably mostly face Collison. Rondo will face Kemba mostly.

  • sws94

    Old starting lineup tonight with PJ in it.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If the Hornets can score over 100 points, they are more likely to win this game. The defense of the Kings are not that good.

  • Spot

    Kings can outrebound Hornets. And they’re better in ISO games.

    Hornets should play as a team, quick passes one to another and shoot fearless when they’re open.

    They can easily beat the Kings if they play as a team and with good offence. Will they?

  • Spot

    If Kaminsky plays in place of Hawes they would be unstoppable.

    Oh yes, if Jeremy can run plays they can win games in the 2nd quartier 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I think the Suns has done well pretty well im the off season. They are getting better.

  • Spot

    West is still much tougher than East even if East is improving a lot.

  • Rick Johnson

    Charlotte Hornets ✔ @hornets
    Per Coach Cliff: with @hairston_pj & @CodyZeller back in the rotation – P.J. will start, Cody coming off the bench. #SACatCHA
    https://twitter.com/hornets/status/668921061908594688

  • Spot

    Not only that. Cho has fine a brilliant job:

    BATUM is a great 3&DD
    LAMB is a gem. Pure shooter. He just needs to play.
    KAMINSKY is the steal of the draft. Can shoot 3 easily and he’s a good passer.
    And, of course,LIN.

    Cho made just one mistake: keeping Clifford as coach who is wasting a very talented team. Hopefully he can fix that thru the season.

  • JoeTeam

    Looked like incidental contact to me, but then again, they may have very tough rules on that.

  • Spot

    Because he has faith in Jeremy…

    He prefers a non fully fit Hairston as starter. And I mean, Hairston.

    Put Lamb at least with the starters!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Obviously tanking at this point. Getting pretty obvious. Hope the ping pong balls take away their top 3 pick.

    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/668901751244718080

  • Spot

    So Kobe is just their tanking player? 😀

    OMG we’re winning! Quick, pass to Kobe!!

  • Rick Johnson

    What it looks like to me. Last year Kobe took the ball out of JLin’s hands as he was trying to catch up and it would halt the run.

  • CJSHYY

    Cliff just stays w what he used to…. never change….smh!

    https://twitter.com/rick_bonnell/status/668918734283628544

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Give Kobe the stats and he would chuck up a bad shot. Let him do the ISO, the team will implode. Just make him work hard to get his shot off, Kobe’s old legs will defeat himself. Just don’t get him in foul trouble, you need him to be on the court to trounce the Lakers.

    PSA

    The State Department issued a Worldwide Travel Alert Monday , citing an increase in terrorist threats as Americans head into Thanksgiving weekend:

    “Current information suggests that ISIL (aka Da’esh), al-Qa’ida, Boko Haram, and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics, using conventional and non-conventional weapons and targeting both official and private interests. This Travel Alert expires on February 24, 2016.

  • james brown

    IRONY>>>with other players, he needs to experiment, but Jlin no need to experiment, cliff knows where to put him?

  • JoeTeam

    wow …

  • sws94

    Clifford is the reason why Lin is a Hornet. Clifford and Silas. Asking for a new coach is very chancy. Look at how others have treated him.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I couldn’t agree with you. Both Batum, Lamb, Kaminsky are mediocre players at large with Batum being a cut above the others in offense. Lamb could shoot if he’s left wide open. Put a defender on him to front him, he wouldn’t have a good game. He’s the least to worry. Kaminsky is still a rookie who hasn’t found his groove yet.

    You need the resurrection of Spencer Hawes’s aggression and Lin’s passing to win this game. But Lin has not been comfortable with the tempo of the game that Clifford plans for him. Moreover, Lin don’t have good picks from the big men.

    Clifford is the coach who put things together for this team. It’s Chao who has been dictating all those bad moves in signing extensions way over his head hurting the team chemistry and intruding on the usage of players. Clifford will stay in the league longer than Chao.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He’s the key of this game. If his shooting % is low, the Kings would lose this game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Just don’t make offensive fouls going for the bucket.

  • Linja

    Cliff mistaken JLin’s Hair as Hairston.

  • Phillycheese

    Kings can’t defend.

  • 1mtoldman

    “Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant has yet to officially announce retirement plans, but judging by his play so far this season, the former NBA Most Valuable Player is a shell of his former self.

    Such a conclusion was harder to assert over the previous two years when Bryant’s troubles could be blamed on injuries to his knee, shoulder and Achilles tendon (he missed 123 games over that time). This season, though, Bryant has appeared in eight of 11 games, suggesting that, at the age of 37, he’s unlikely to get any healthier than this.

    Regardless, Bryant has undermined the Lakers’ chances when he has been on the court.

    The problem is, Bryant still likes to shoot, taking a team-high 16.4 field-goal attempts per game. Only now he’s making just 33.6% of those shots, which was worse than all but five players who averaged at least 10 field-goal attempts per game, entering Tuesday, according to NBA.com.

    The shots that he is making represent such a small portion of what his offensive diet once was. Bryant was renown for creating his own shot while accumulating five NBA titles over his career, but this season, half of his two-point field goals have been assisted.

    Remarkably, Bryant, the 1997 NBA Dunk Contest champion, has yet to even attempt a dunk this season, according to Basketball-Reference.com.

    And Bryant’s sudden fondness for the 3-pointer has only exacerbated matters. For his career, just 20.4% of his field-goal attempts have come from distance, but that figure has skyrocketed to a career-high 45.8% this season as he’s made just 23.3% of those attempts (his career mark is 33.2% from 3-point range).

    In other words, Bryant has turned himself into a jump shooter whose biggest weakness appears to be his ability to shoot.”

    –alex raskin, wsj

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Kings lost all the games that Cousins are contained in offense. If you let him go wild, they win.

  • jlim7

    SMH, they are not even apologizing for their faults but instead use bully tactic to force NBA to punish coach who rightfully pointed out what was wrong. I think all NBA fans should unite to demand NBA to replace all of their referees. There are so many FIBA clean, capable referees that are ready to replace them.

  • Phillycheese

    Putting Kobe above the team will lose you games …and the team.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe shooting a 3 is as good as a turnover. A bad turnover because shooting from that distance the ball bounces far and ends up being an easy transition basket.

  • Rick Johnson

    Hes actually now 20% from the 3.

  • 1mtoldman

    watching the kings saturday nite win over the magic (a team similar to hornets in overall success to date this season) it was the line up of koufous, cousins, caspi, bellinelli and rondo that did the damage.

    tho mclemore, cousins and cauley stein started they were all pretty much useless.

    all three bench players (caspi, bellini, koufous) scored in double figures and they and this lineup were responsible for the win.

    (someone notes below kings hornets as two of the highest scoring benches in the league).

  • 1mtoldman

    (article was written before last game)

  • blubell

    Stay safe everyone!

  • Chopz

    These days, kobe shooting anything is basically considered a turnover.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The 2nd unit of Hornets is defensively better than the Kings. The Kings bench is good at making 3 point shots if you leave them wide open. Hope Lin will stop helping out on defense with them.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe’s legs are failing him.

  • Chopz

    He’s turned himself into a jumpshooter at least 4 or 5 years ago now. I don’t even remember the last time he took anybody off the dribble. He just comes down, turns his back to you, pretends he’s actually going somewhere, then takes a fadeway shot and bricks. Kobes like a washing machine, all washed up. Soak, spin, rinse, repeat.

  • 1mtoldman

    kobe himself said recently after a game that he could barely stand or walk. but his hubris seems to be back now as he’s saying maybe they can beat the dubs streak and that he feels fine playing 37 minutes.

    he seems to be trying but failing to get out of that river in egypt. (de-nial)

  • NONONO

    Thanks. I am not sure SD should not publish the expiration date though.

  • Spot

    Batum is playing out of position and doing things no one’s ever asked him (running the point? SMH!).

    Lamb already showed good things. He’s still young. Others younger play as starter even if they shoot worse.

    Kaminsky needs to play. He’s a rookie.

    And I can add Troy Daniels, left on the bench when he can space the floor; Hansbrough who is maybe the best rebounder in the team.

    Btw, it’s Clifford who wanted Lance Stephenson last year…

  • 1mtoldman

    interesting note on rondo: he is actually here at sacramento shooting back to his celtics preinjury days that is shooting good; except for free throws. the thing is he never shoots free throws, he shoots like 1 free throw a game.

    but when he does shoot a free throw he hits a ridiculous 35%. (he shot under 40% last year as well). maybe hack a rondo should be employed at some point.

  • cdblue10

    So Cliff is saying that…since PJ and Zeller is back,everything will be back as it is before…so he’ll use Lin again for 17 mins today?If it happens to I’ll airpunch him….LOL

  • Spot

    Oh yes. And Byron Scott was a Jeremy Lin fan.

    Apart of being a Lin fan, he’s not doing a good job anyway. If I say the contrary, I’d be a liar.

  • GoodDayLA

    17 min as actual ball dominant pg way better than 32 as sg who does 3 and D

  • NONONO

    I think he would use Lin a lot more if Rondo given Hornets too much trouble.

  • sws94

    Why do you want to start the minutes talk again? smh.

  • Spot

    LOL!! Probably

  • cdblue10

    So what?What do you me to talk about?smh

  • jeremy

    Hate Clifford

  • Spot

    Good point

  • cdblue10

    I hope so,Lin is very important on this team…If he goes most often than not the team wins

  • jeremy

    LOL so hes basically saying that Kobe can do whatever he wants and other players have to share the ball LOLOL
    he just insulted himself pretty much as an incompetent coach

  • 1mtoldman

    thanks. some of your points below on various hornet players were “spot on” too.

  • sws94

    Not up to me, just asking.

  • Spot

    Problem is Al is against him. Cousins is too verticale for Al. And too athlethic. And Cousins has range now.

    Hornets better have a plan. And a good one.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not a day that the terrorists are not planning to attack to kill American. This is what we have to live with from now on if we chose to do nothing other than bombing their oil trucks.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Most likely.

  • jeremy

    not up to any of us how many mins Lin plays theres nothing we can do about that but its not ridiculous to hope he gets to play more

  • jeremy

    if they go rondo-collison

  • Spot

    Thanks 🙂

  • sws94

    It’s not an issue the last few games. Anyway, I’m done with minutes. Talk about them all you want. Game starts soon.

  • Spot

    Exactly!!!

  • jeremy

    hes barely ball dominant
    all plays are called for Lamb

  • cdblue10

    Whatever sports you play…playing time is always the most crucial and important to any player

  • GoodDayLA

    He’s running out of excuses and is starting to tell the truth. And it’s becoming more of a joke . He’s better off lying about roles and acting delusional like last season.

  • jeremy

    nobody made it an issue
    he was promised back up mins and hes getting them

  • Spot

    If they go ultra small it would be interesting to see if Clifford goes small too or just use the fact Batum is taller and can shoot above him.

  • sws94

    I think Lin should not double Cousins. I know Lin likes to disrupt the big man down low. Let someone else do it. I hope Lin sticks with his man in this game but I have a bad feeling he’s going to dry to double Cousins a lot when on the floor with him.

  • jeremy

    yah much better that way
    Although, I would give him the benefit of the doubt until next year when Kobe is gone

  • 1mtoldman

    my usual “poverty stream” under the radar sites arent loading at all 2nite for some reason (or not carrying this game)–any suggestions beyond the ones listed above perpetually?

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Well, I hope Lin can continue to get at least 25mpg..but it is fair to speculate that with Hairston back in the line-up, Lin may go back to getting well under 25 minute per game.

    Those are fair speculation to debate…I don’t know why you get so angry when people bring up these facts.

    I personally feel Hairston should not be in the rotation and with him in it, it makes it hard for Lin to get 25, even when Lin finishes in the 4th.

    Let’s see what type of minute Lin gets…If he’s back to 18-21 range, a lot of people will not be happy here and it is fair to debate Lin’s minute on this message board because a clear pattern has materialized and it can’t be ignored.

  • james brown

    if game is close, Jlin pays more!

  • sws94

    Most killed by terrorists aren’t Americans. I don’t think Boko Haram has killed many Americans. They kill Nigerians mostly.

    Be as careful as possible, everyone, worldwide.

  • Acbc

    “Help us Kobe wan Kobe, you’re our only hope…please retire soon!”

    Lol, Kobe…”the dark side is all powerful, I find you’re lack of faith in me disturbing. Ship him to the bench BS”

  • blubell

    He’s had at least three triple-double games, no?

  • NONONO

    100% correct. If first quarter Hornets is 10 pts behind, Lin will get in early too.

  • sws94

    I’m tired and bored with the minutes talk. I think Lin is being integrated with Batum and Kemba into the team and will be a big part of the team. I think he’s one of the main guys, but it’ll take time before his role is completely defined. Worrying about minutes every game is useless, it is whatever it is. The hope is he’ll play well and his shots will fall. He’ll develop great chemistry with Batum and maybe others in the first unit so he’ll play at crucial times in the game. I worry when he doesn’t finish games. He finishes most close games.

  • sws94

    Yes.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    So Lamb and Lin are contending for the precious minutes again. The FO is all behind Lamb of course; Lamb’s good performance will make them look good.

    JLin and JLamb are going to be the issue throughout the regular season. I’m not sure if the team is going to the playoff at all. 13 good teams contending for the 8 spots, and it’s not a good picture for this team.

    They have to play like they have planned in the preseason for this team to come out above. So far I haven’t seen it yet. They still count on Kemba and Jefferson combination so much that improvements have not been made in strides. The FO is still constantly meddling with how the players are going to be used.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Game Time! Good Luck, Charlotte

  • jeremy

    they aint making the playoffs
    clifford is clueless

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If Lamb is hot shooting, they play Lamb. If the team needs defense, they have to play Lin.

  • LinMad

    is seth curry any good?

  • Al

    Lin will be in faul trouble tonight. Unfortunately King’s players will get star treatment from the referees.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Don’t worry. This is a home game. All eyes are watching.

  • LinMad

    I think Lin got to play about 27 minutes before when Zeller and PJ was not injured. Hopefully Lin will get around 25-27 mins per game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If Lin gets his minutes, the team will win.

  • Acbc

    This site is just so polluted with negativity. Hate the coach, hate this player, hate that player. Do you even think for one minute it helps Lin? I’ll bet Lin likes all his teammates and coaches.

    I hope Lin has a good game. I’m outa here.

  • sws94

    After D’Antoni, Clifford has been the best coach. Better than Woodson, McHale and Scott.

  • LinMad

    I think that’s one main reason why Lamb won’t start over Lin. Too many shooters in starting unit already and they lack defense so that’s the reason why Lin started over Lamb last game.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Dell (father) interviewing Seth (son)

  • blubell

    Consistent, quality minutes would be great.

  • Yascar

    Thank you Acbc. Honestly, I feel the same way.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is in his comfort zone in home games here in Charlotte..

  • sws94

    Lamb is a good scorer but Lin is an overall more experienced, smarter, better all-around player than Lamb. And that’s why I think Lin closes over Lamb. Unless Lin goes into very bad habits or Lamb improves his overall game by leaps and bounds, Lin should remain the closer at least until MKG is back or a trade happens.

  • NONONO

    Wait, Dell Curry is interviewing Seth Curry, asking about Stephen Curry. Is it fair?

  • Linzen

    In a desperate attempt to get JLin out of his shooting slump…

    Lin sucks!!

    here… that should do it! 🙂

  • LinMad

    where’s the pollution? I don’t see any

  • blubell

    Mods are clearing up the pollution as best as they can but need others to cooperate as well.

  • Joe what do you know

    Hear hear…. Just hope some positivity comes back to this forum for once…..

  • LinMad

    wow how did they leave cousins wide opened like that? lucky he missed

  • LinMad

    this site has way less pollution than the other one

  • LinMad

    lol why is rondo so horrible at FT?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin has done nothing of that and yet all those postings insinuating these errant denotations spreading around here. I doubt if they are from Lin fans at all. Lin haters lately are trying to put on the disguise of being Lin fans. True Lin fans would respect Lin’s feelings toward his coaches and teammates.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m surely happy that Hairston is back and the Charlotte is back on track again.

  • sws94

    You can hear the coaches yelling Kemba, PJ very loudly.

  • LinMad

    oh ya we hear him loud and clearly every game

  • LinMad

    Hairston injured again?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Right now, the Hornets are hitting 3s that the Kings aren’t. It’s a good sign.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe allows them to pretend like they are not tanking but they really are. They put their HOF “best player” in to try to win the game but he’s actually causing them to lose the game to secure the top 3 pick.

  • sws94

    Kemba’s playing well on both ends.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kemba is having a very good game. Good for him.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I have deleted a couple with my limited time here:-(

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kings goes to their bench early while the Hornets stays with their starting 5.

  • LinMad

    Lamb in before Zeller?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Cousins has got all 3 buckets in a row. That’s going to hurt.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    airball on FT, cousins

  • LinMad

    oh oh cousins giving us problems

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s not what you want to see, Cousins got hot making all those buckets.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Should close him down

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Slow game….need JLin and bench to step it up!

  • DX

    Put Lin in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sws94

    Hornets are playing well so far. Good plays by Kemba and Batum, Al’s been OK but his usual self on defense.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Hornets need Zeller to front Cousins and switch Batum to 2. Lamb is not doing anything for the time being. He won’t be a factor at all with his defense.

  • LinMad

    is Zeller out today?

  • LinMad

    the hot honey bees

  • GoodDayLA

    You are a hypocrite. You have posted here last few days questioning the coach and team usage of Lin. So don t give us this post.

  • Rick Johnson

    Hope Troy Daniels is okay. Is out for personal reasons. Had tweeted this a few days ago:

    https://twitter.com/HornetsPR/status/668916988337614851

    https://twitter.com/troydaniels/status/667916050252611584

  • Rick Johnson

    Much better than Laker Girls.

  • DX

    Still not Lin after Lamb, Harrison, Zoller?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If Belinelli gets his 3, the Hornets will be in big trouble.

  • Rick Johnson

    Always the last to come in

  • Rick Johnson

    Yeah, Lin in !!

  • DX

    Finally!!!!!!!! Only 1:30 left.

  • LinMad

    omg Zeller’s ankles

  • CaliUSMC

    That was a nice scoop by Cousins~

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The good news is Cousins picked up 2 fouls.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The bad news is Belinelli gets hot.

  • cshot

    make them free throws jeremyyyyy

  • LinMad

    so far so good i guess

  • sws94

    Lin, concentrate. Get your free points.

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    omg

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Should rest Batum and put MW back in with JLin

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    Lin come on this is your time!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Difficult to concentrate when Lamb is put in the game ahead of him.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If Lamb can’t deliver his 3, the Hornets are doomed.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Lamb needs to step up his D!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Game is tied.

  • blubell

    He needs to play D too!

  • cdblue10

    Nice block

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Who is playing defense?

  • blubell

    Defense!

  • Rick Johnson

    Hairston in for Batum. Don’t like this lineup. Not enough offense. JLin better start taking over offense and make buckets.

  • blubell

    They’re trading baskets…

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    Marco is torching Lamb

  • cshot

    jeremy with the nasty block and assist

  • LinMad

    we need better D on cousins and berinelli

  • cdblue10

    Hawes and Lamb are just sleeping on defense

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    Lamb has no chance against Marco

  • cshot

    they need to rely on lin’s offense with this lineup. get him most of the touches with lamb. i don’t mind this lineup actually

  • NONONO

    is Lamb supposed on berinelli?

  • cdblue10

    Let Lin handle that dude

  • LinMad

    omg that hurts

  • NONONO

    LOL. Lin threw ball the the corner he usually is there.

  • DX

    Lamb has given 2 +1

  • blubell

    Walker coming back…

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    Lins jumpshot so broke my god

  • Rick Johnson

    Lamb and Hawes are redundant. Should replace one with Hansbrough.

  • cshot

    get out of here troll

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clifford is having trouble putting up a lineup on the floor right now.

  • NONONO

    Lin needs to shot whenever he is open.

  • LinMad

    I think Lin is being used defensively today. Too many shooters on the floor.

  • sws94

    So Walker, Batum, Lin, Lamb and MW. Wonder how long he’ll go with this group.

  • DX

    Shot or attack the rim. Be active!

  • sws94

    Lin has to just shoot the mid-range jumper if the drive isn’t there.

  • NONONO

    it is the best group. Lin needs to be MEAN

  • LinMad

    GOOD JOB LIN!!

  • LinJa

    His old habits came back. Seems aimless there when he dribbles around.

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    its not in his blood to be mean

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    LIN attacked and was praying for a foul.. he should have tried to scored first

  • DX

    Lin is only working on D now.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin has no confidence in his shot. Was wide open for a 3. Sacramento not even bothering to guard him at the 3 point line. Wonder what happened to his pre-season shooting?

  • Sundown

    No interior D

  • Alain Gervais

    Lins defense is great and his shot is terrible

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    Has Lin made a shot yet?

  • LinMad

    0-3 we’ll see 2nd half

  • LinMad

    nah but he only took 3 shots.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lamb picked up his 3rd fou.

  • sws94

    Yes, but he’s made some big plays that aren’t on the scoreboard. Got the foul on Cousins and made that big interception. He’s showing intangibles even though he’s boxscore doesn’t look good at all.

  • Rick Johnson

    Made 1 FT, about it. Sad

  • Rzo Vlade

    shooting form is doesnt suit him…..fire schepler

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    still.. im starting to worry about his shot

  • NONONO

    Did you guys see Cousins went after Lin after the foul? Rondo actually stopped him.

  • LinMad

    Maybe Cliff needs to draw some plays for Lin since he can’t make any buckets right now. Draw some easy buckets for Lin.

  • DX

    Lin is really struggling on his jump shot now.

  • KingOfTheBuzz

    why

  • sws94

    His shot will be fine. Just needs that one game when the first 2 falls and he gets a rhythm.

  • LinMad

    ya i did, but what he gonna do?

  • sws94

    Lin is doing other things. He’s not in for scoring right now. That’ll come or not this game.

  • NONONO

    Lin would have spiked him.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Cousins hoping for an offensive foul. But ref not giving haha

  • LinMad

    gave Cousins his 3rd foul lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Tie the game, Hornets.

  • Rick Johnson

    Dell Curry’s wife is hot.

  • LinJa

    Ok Lin, just focus on playing awesome defense.

  • sws94

    Looks like Lin will finish out the quarter. That’s good.

  • LinMad

    is she half asian?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin must play a heck of defense to stay in the ball game.

  • blubell

    Steph Curry’s mom?

  • NONONO

    GREAT Ds

  • DX

    Actually, that’s great. When Lin found the feeling back, he will perfect.

  • LinJa

    Lin another Unforced TO

  • NONONO

    His Ds very good!

  • blubell

    2 steals

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin twice picked Rondo’s pocket. Hahahaha

  • cdblue10

    C’mon Collison moved to his side

  • aras

    my goodness lin is terrible right now offensivly needs to pick it up this is beneath him

  • LinJa

    Lin’s worst offensive game I think…

  • LinMad

    relax Lin is 0-3. It’s not like he took 10 shots.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lins offense looks ugly. Throw that tape away

  • NONONO

    one of best D though. Need no hesitate !!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    An “F” for those refs.

  • LinJa

    I agree

  • blubell

    Second half coming up. Hopefully he will pick it up.

  • LinMad

    Lin bailed Batum’s missed dunk though lol

  • cshot

    Jeremy is the type that needs touches to get going. Him hoping to hit shots off the ball with the clock running down isn’t his forte

  • sws94

    I didn’t like that offensive foul call on Lin. I rather that be a non-call. But Lin is not playing with confidence tonight on offense. What’s saving him is his defense and hustle. Lin doesn’t seem to be taking that next step yet nor will he win over Charlotte or MJ unless he gets his offensive game in gear.

  • CJSHYY

    0-3 is not too bad bc he didn’t shoot a lot.

  • SHINYDONUT

    Yup, that was complete BS call. Collison shifted over for sure.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Lin’s shot has completely left him…It’s either short or too hard….Second half will be much better..God’s willing.

  • Alain Gervais

    I have seen no improvement in Lins shot this season. Ill give it time.

  • zxcvb

    Lin is really out of sorts offensively this game. Passes when he should drive. Jumper when he should pass. Out of control on the fastbreak. Refs killing him, but Lin has overcome them before.

    Defense is superb though, and I’m glad Clifford is seeing that and letting him play big minutes. That’s great to see.

    Lin’s %s will even themselves out over the course of the month, season. No worries. He’s in a slump, but everyone has slumps, at least when you come off the bench. Mr. 4th Quarter is always capable of getting hot late, though.

  • LinMad

    lol looks like Hornet fans are mad at Lin. Saying shooting slump on 3 fga…lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nothing worked on offense for Lin. But this is only 1st half

  • NONONO

    Lin needs to put his hair up during shooting practices, make it CONSISTENT!

  • cshot

    it’s hard to see results after changing shot form. one of the toughest thing to see quick results

  • LinMad

    3 FREAKING SHOTS GUISE. CALM DOWN ABOUT HIS SHOT NOT BEING THERE. 3 SHOTS = 6 POINTS. YES HE MISSED THEM BUT WHATEVER. ITS NOT END OF THE WORLD.

  • CJSHYY

    Where did you get this?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hornets played aggressive w/o fouling with the exception of Lamb. Nobody in the Hornets is in foul trouble.
    The Kings would have problems later because both McLemore and Cousins have picked up 3 fouls already!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    or leave it down in game.

  • NONONO

    CUT! but it might hurt his D. LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Please.

  • spiderman

    great defense indeed, with 2 steals and 1 block
    he’ll bounce back in his shooting in the 2nd half, and still make a positive impact

  • LinMad

    @KingO@KingOfTheBuzz:disqus u know all ur comments are being deleted by mod right? stop trolling

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Just flag his comments and don’t respond to it.

  • aras

    Second half lin has got to pick it up offensivly credit to clifford for letting him play 3 turnovers that could have been avoided come on lin!

  • spiderman

    Need Hansbrough

  • LinMad

    draw some plays for Lin please. Like easy bucket plays. I think his shots will come but he’s too focused on D.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    His D is hard to take away.

  • NONONO

    Bench all – on +/- so far. I think Lin’s hesitation (with 3 TOs) hurts.

  • blubell

    His posts are being flagged which automatically puts them in moderation and not necessarily mods deleting.

  • aras

    shots come and go but the decision making man come on he started of good like all games but then fades on the offense

  • jeremy

    clifford refuses to do so its kind of obvious now isnt it

  • LinMad

    The good thing about Lin is that if his shots aren’t falling, he focuses more on D and that’s why I think Cliff let him stay in that long. Not saying that he will not play D if his shots are hitting.

  • LinJa

    Maybe he is distracted by something. He did say he’s emotional…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hawes has to sit.

  • LinMad

    oh good

  • jeremy

    decision making thou
    feels like whenever he touched the ball he turned it over
    need to tighten up his handle

  • NONONO

    it could be. I think if Cliff keeps him in (for his good D), he might do much better later.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He’s the last to be sent in.

  • LinMad

    well that one fastbreak was a hard one cause that guy pretty much fouled him and no call. The other TO was offensive foul he should have looked straight but either way Batum missed that opened dunk. I think Lin’s offensive game has been offed since last game.

  • occupatio

    are rondo and collison both on floor together?

  • grover chang

    Did Lin play pg?

  • Alain Gervais

    Yep

  • NONONO

    Fingers sore due to too much video games last night? Tiger mom is watching!

  • jeremy

    …or

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kings has 3 shooters getting easy baskets. Guess it has unsettled the Hornets quite a bit.

  • jeremy

    yah but still, he should do his part

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin has done pretty much everything except scoring.

  • LinMad

    I think he is doing his part by deferring to other shooters and focusing on D. If in 3rd qtr, Kings kill Hornets on scoring, I bet you Cliff will bring in Lin early.

  • NONONO

    60 points is very good got both teams.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hate to say this….I think the Starters (minus JLin) gonna close this game….the bench needs to step up.

  • LinJa

    Lin needs to slow down. He is pushing hard but kings are keeping up.

  • LinMad

    no if starters don’t play good D and Kings outscore Hornets, Lin is coming in early and finishing.

  • jeremy

    exactly!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    except when you’re the home team. The catch is in high scoring game, Hornets tend to win and Kings tend to lose. This is from the past record.

  • LinJa

    Lin is going to close. Cliff’s trying to be consistent unless something is completely off. Lin is reliable in defense and offense most nights. Plus Lin is mr 4th

  • sws94

    He closed the first half, there was a reason for it.

  • LinMad

    ok D is breaking down.

  • NONONO

    AL? where is D

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    NO LIN NO D. NO TYLER NO D.

  • LinJa

    Lin to stop the bleeding on D.

  • Rick Johnson

    Clifford going to put Lin in early now to help with defense.

  • real-dsb

    start of 3q, hornets have no D… or O

  • NONONO

    PJ does nothing! take him out!

  • LinMad

    so who you think will finish the game now? Hornets need more D so I think Lin will play longer today.

  • real-dsb

    they need to sub Lin in soon

  • LinJa

    Lol that rondo reverse was horrible

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Just what I figure, the Kings comes out smoking and the Hornets can’t make a shot.

  • LinMad

    im surprised he got to get in that deep

  • NONONO

    very soon if the gap getting wider

  • LinMad

    if u can’t make ur shot u better play good D or we will trail like we are now

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    They starters are going to rest early with what they are doing.

  • LinJa

    I gotta say George Karl is coaching this game up.

  • james brown

    that maybe a factor?

  • NONONO

    This is first time Bench does not help much since vs Spurs game.

  • golfhacker

    The shooters on this team (Kemba, Batum, Lamb) all can create their own shot. No effort at all, even when defended. Jeremy, on the other hand can’t create his own shot. As a shooting guard you have to be able to get off shots even when being defended.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s the defense to keep you in the game.

  • real-dsb

    3q8m. Hairston with a terrible turnover, then commits a bad foul on the breakaway. 🙁

  • LinMad

    i think we need defense more than offense right now

  • David Kim

    DID LIN RUN LOTS OF PNR TODAY?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    When you put Lamb in the game first, you can sort of expecting this to happen every time.

  • NONONO

    getting urgly

  • real-dsb

    3q8m Cousins strips Al, breakaway layup

  • LinJa

    No

  • real-dsb

    3q7m Marvin with 3 fouls

  • LinMad

    our D looks bad

  • real-dsb

    3q7m Lamb in, no Lin yet

  • real-dsb

    15-2 run for Sac

  • real-dsb

    3q7m Kemba wide open 3, missed by a lot

  • LinMad

    Do we really need another shooter right now?

  • real-dsb

    no

  • LinMad

    Cousins is hurt

  • real-dsb

    3q7m nice move by batum

  • blubell

    Need a defender…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    As long as they put in Lamb first, I’m not rooting on the Hornets.

  • LinJa

    Hornets are out of sorts right now. Cliff needs to refocus them or change lineup

  • LinMad

    I think Macklemore who Lamb is on will get hot soon

  • real-dsb

    3q6m bad defensive strategy. Marvin goes out to 3 pt line, Rudy runs back to basket, easy 5 ft shott

  • LinMad

    Kings making it look easy

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Cousins OUT!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Oh well, let’s see whether the second unit can do anything. Otherwise, it will lose big.

  • real-dsb

    3q5m Al against triple team, launches a shot that hits the glass about 3 ft above the basket. (groan)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Kings is picking the Hornets apart.

  • LinMad

    Al should have passed there. 3 guys on him.

  • Rick Johnson

    Hornets defense is bad. Looking at them now they aren’t a playoff team.

  • NONONO

    Lin toke out Cousins. Cliff should reward him 10 more mins.

  • JJ Hui

    Why?

  • David Kim

    both first unit and 2nd unit without Lin not good…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    PNR will close the gap

  • John Focker

    George Karl is a great coach and knows how to design plays to shut down Lin, but he doesn’t need to do it today as the Hornets are doing a fairly good job on their own.

  • james brown

    cliff has no move to react on the game..waited long till team was deep! subs pattern head scratching !

  • cdblue10

    why not play something different?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Rondo is doing pretty much whatever he wants. Who the tell is guarding him?

  • real-dsb

    3q4m Lamb with TOV

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hole may be too big to fill….Hornets in trouble.

  • LinMad

    Even offense looks bad now

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Game over!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Good job Kings! Hornets have no answer with these 5.

  • real-dsb

    by the time Lin gets subbed in, the game will be out of hand 20 pts lead

  • cdblue10

    call a timeout,sub some players up

  • Rick Johnson

    Kemba too small to defend Rondo. Rondo gets wherever he wants. No pressure

  • jeremy

    Still no Lin
    just how much CLifford trusts Lin on offense smh

  • LinMad

    Kings is showing how bad our interior defense is.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Haha…Cliff looks desperate…

  • real-dsb

    3q4m Lamb got destroyed by a simple crossover. groan

  • real-dsb

    3q4m Kam in, stil no Lin

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    When your first unit lost 20 points in a quarter, it’s time to yell who’s causing that.

  • sws94

    Rondo is a really good PG.

  • LinMad

    I wonder if Dell Curry is happy his son’s team is winning

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    18 points lead and Cliff continues to do what he is doing. No adjustments! Great with the lineup.

  • NONONO

    Rondo 14 asts? Put Lin on him!

  • blubell

    Rondo is everywhere…

  • real-dsb

    21 pts lead, game over. too late for Lin

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I don’t want Lin to go in now. Let them shoot their foot.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    wow Kings destroying Hornets….Cliff better do something..

  • sws94

    2 minutes, he’ll be in. He has to step it way up offensively when he comes in as the team is way down now.

  • LinMad

    THE DAGGER!! OH IT HURTS <- usually I saw this when Lin hits a 3 but not today

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Too late for JLin to do anything now

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    21 points lead. JLin doesn’t need to play. Garbage time!

  • LinMad

    Maybe Troy Daniels get to play today lol

  • David Kim

    clifford deserves the loss today..

  • JJ Hui

    Lin as PG will help!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Agreed. Don’t want JLin to come in. Can’t do anything with all these people.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    got to shoot the 3s

  • LinMad

    I don’t get how Clifford let it slip away so fast. Should have called time out and made some more adjustments.

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s defense would help as well….

  • NONONO

    I did not know Cliff is so stubborn until now.

  • sws94

    Troy is unavailable this game. Personal leave.

  • noob

    Bad with and without Lin

  • cdblue10

    LOL….yeah some people love Cliff but after 10 point led and no adjustment was made,you start to ask his coaching ability

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Seem like Cliff isn’t thinking about JLin that way.

  • John Focker

    Time to put Lin and Psycho T in…

  • real-dsb

    remember the score was tied at the beginning of the quarter? 21 pt lead in about 9 mins

  • Singapore BB Fan

    He tried but to no avail. too late…too deep now

  • leeda harun

    Offense and defense sucks today…..wonder why coach?

  • james brown

    this is cliffs fault..an intellect who doesn’t know when to react!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What did you think when you found out he goes back to square 1 after PJ available?

  • LinMad

    If Lin carries this team back into the game I’m going to LOL cause its pretty much impossible.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    2 days off….??

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is a demonstration to the FO your early extension and forcing Clifford to use Lamb would hurt the team more than helping.
    Lamb would get the stats but the team will lose more games.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Cliff is really not good in game adjustments and stubborn in whom he believes.

  • blubell

    Outscored 29-8 🙁

  • Steppen03

    Don’t talk about competing with GS – This is what I means… worry about the Wiz, Cavs, Bucks…. GS is on a Whole Different Level. We suppose to win this game.

  • NONONO

    No matter how bad Lin’s shootings were, he helped keep the team in play. Cliff, be smart !

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin -4 seems really good now:-)

  • Singapore BB Fan

    oh no…looks more like a blowout!

  • real-dsb

    3q2m 22 pt lead now

  • leeda harun

    now I am worry about his shooting. ??.

  • blubell

    I don’t get why Jeremy didn’t come in after that time out.

  • JJ Hui

    But Lin is a pg and that is what he is good at!

  • NONONO

    Cliff uses big against small??? crazy!!!!

  • LinMad

    I don’t mind if Lin isn’t played again today. This is a blowout and it’s on Kemba, Batum, Al.

  • real-dsb

    3q1m Batum almost airballed that 7 ft turnaround J

  • leeda harun

    Hornet too confident..

  • LinMad

    selfish ball activated, defense deactivated

  • real-dsb

    3q1m nice Kam cutting down the lane for the dunk!

  • cdblue10

    lol

  • real-dsb

    3q0m Kemba dribbling clock out, TOV.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s a real disappointment that this home team comes out of the locker room and gets immediately buried alive.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin and Tyler please.

  • Steppen03

    We HAVEN’T earned anything!! Lol… Shouldn’t be confident.

  • LinMad

    Lin didn’t play in the 3rd. I think that’s it for Lin?

  • jeremy

    clifford sucks
    he does not know how to coach

  • cshot

    lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nop. I’ve never really concerned about his shooting. I just didn’t like the lineup that JLin was put in when he was in. Hairston with 2nd unit is really not great. That was why the game went away rather than rolling it in.

  • Rick Johnson
  • LinMad

    0-3 isn’t really a big concern.

  • james brown

    Cliff, doesn’t know how to coach …i get now why he promise players, because he forgets it later on!

  • NONONO

    Lin should demand play time now.

  • leeda harun

    too confident that they got above 500

  • real-dsb

    Hornets announcers gave Lin defensive play of the game

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Did Lin asked the coach whether he can sub in at around the 1:45 minute mark and Lin went back into the bench…Looked like Cliff told him “no” so Lin went back to his seat…Did anyone see that?

  • real-dsb

    4q12m Lin in

  • aras

    yes he does he needs to play does not matter if it is garbage time

  • cdblue10

    This Charlotte team is good but they don’t know how to fully utilize their strength.Cliff coaching style will not pan out in playoff…if they’ll reach the plyoff

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Consolation. JLin got the Defense of the Night…block shot running back.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well, I was a little surprise Kings didn’t bury 1st unit in 1st qtr. Well, not surprise it happened in 3rd qtr. This was the worst I believe since the beginning of season.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Whose fault is it? The one with the worst +/- would be the one causing the avalenche effect because the offense stop flowing the defense start to collapse once he checked in.

  • real-dsb

    4q11m Lin on Rondo. Rondo didn’t even attempt to make a move.

  • sws94

    Be practical. How well did LIn play in the 1st half offensively to demand playing time? He got 14 minutes in the first half. He’ll play some of the 4th at least.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Idon’t want Lin to go into the game。

  • real-dsb

    4q11m Lin on Rondo. Forces Rondo into bad entry pass, Cousins called for oul

  • LinMad

    Lin on Rondo

  • real-dsb

    Kemba getting easy looks… I wonder why?

  • real-dsb

    Hornets look like a completely differnt team in Q4… i wonder why?

  • LinMad

    The comeback is real?

  • NONONO

    He made scores tied! he cannot score worse than that in second half. so, he will help!

  • blubell

    Mr. 4th quarter?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Nice one JLin

  • real-dsb

    4q9m nice reverse by LIn!

  • real-dsb

    Hornets all of the sudden playing much better offense and defense since Lin came in Q4.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    When the situation gets tough。 the tough gets going。
    Don’t save them, let them be buried。

  • LinMad

    Cousins should just sit before he goes to the hospital

  • real-dsb

    within 10 already. Lin 3 mins

  • sws94

    OK, Lin. Keep confident.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Trading baskets, no defense。

  • real-dsb

    That was not a charge on Lamb. Cousins slid in after Lamb began his upwards shooting motion.

  • jeremy

    shoudve shot that lin

  • LinMad

    wow, guess they felt sorry for Cousins

  • james brown

    there something wrong with JLIN..seems he’s not in the game?

  • Rick Johnson

    Lamb was already in the air when Cousins slid in. How is Lamb supposed to avoid that?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Seem like refs for Hornets for most the seasons.

  • LinMad

    3 minutes Lin and we’re down by 10 only, I think he’s in the game defensively.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    well, tough game for our boy tonight…very sad….Tonight is simply not his night…Let’s hope the next game will be the best as a Hornets.

  • cdblue10

    I don’t really know his role on this team…to tell you honestly

  • sws94

    Too many TOs for Lin, he’s got to start trusting his mid-range game.

  • sws94

    His role is very clear. He’s just messing up. Batum has messed up too and he has a clear role.

  • NONONO

    Lin +1. somehow he helps!

  • blubell

    18 for the team…

  • occupatio

    lin is playing unsure

  • cdblue10

    What is his role?

  • LinMad

    I think Lin benefits the team in numerous ways like allowign Kemba to get easier buckets and playing good D

  • aras

    awful game for him tonight tough to watch.

  • blubell

    333333333

  • zxcvb

    MR 4Q???

  • sws94

    Yes. Batum has too many too. Lin has no production for his TOs offensively. That’s the problem.

  • LinMad

    LIN 333333333333333333

  • cdblue10

    nice tank

  • real-dsb

    that’s why the charge rule is defined to be at the moment that the shooter begins the upward shooting motion.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin and Kaminsky are the only two in +1 and + 12

  • cdblue10

    flopper

  • Rick Johnson

    They have no answer for Cousins.

  • LinMad

    Lamb is a defensive liability

  • Alain Gervais

    yep

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yeah, Clifford you make the right sub。

  • real-dsb

    while Lin making the team play completely better is nice, it would have been nicer if he came in when they were on 10 down, then the Hornets would have the lead now.

  • zxcvb

    Lin has some SWAG back this quarter. Win or lose, I like it.

  • cdblue10

    Zeller

  • LinMad

    aww no basket

  • zxcvb

    Lin getting KILLED by refs. Should have 4 more FTs and that continuation basket.

  • NONONO

    Lin+ 4. i told ya.

  • zxcvb

    Kemba is not good. Even when he scores, the deficit grows.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kemba’s tired, making stupid TO’s. Give him a rest.

  • zxcvb

    Still 12pt deficit. I don’t like this slopball.

  • LinMad

    Kemba shouldn’t be smiling right now lol

  • LinJa

    The refs are disgusting

  • LinMad

    funny how this run only started when Lin came back in.

  • zxcvb

    Lin has been robbed of 6pts. At least. Brutal hacking on him, no call. Everyone else getting ticky-tack FTs.

  • cshot

    that was a continuation basket…..

  • aras

    stop it he is the one thats keeping it even

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The ref has bets on Kings….no calls for JLin

  • Rick Johnson

    He put pressure on Rondo. Walker too small to impede Rondo. Rondo wasn’t working.

  • LinMad

    yes and ur feed is like 2 minutes late

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Both Cousins and McLemore have picked up 5 fouls, only 12 points behind with 5 minutes. the ball movements come back and it needs good defense.

  • NONONO

    I think Lin makes Cousins nervous.

  • james brown

    KW game was on when JLIn comes in..afraid to be outshine?

  • sws94

    Lin’s 2 should have counted and a +1. That was a beautiful move too. He just has to play with confidence. He’s got all of the tools. And keep shooting the jumper. A 3 fell. Just shoot them.

  • cshot

    no i was just commenting late haha

  • LinMad

    lol

  • NONONO

    ALWAYS.

  • zxcvb

    Cousins is just on fire. And Zeller can’t defend at all. So slow.

  • leeda harun

    clifford didnt learned…. hmmm

  • LinMad

    Someone on Cousins need to make it harder for him

  • cdblue10

    Lin is not a back up for Kemba,he’s not a SG,he played defense against the best opposing guard…but Lin still find to contribute on this team.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kemba going to play like 42 minutes?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Fouling only helps the Hornets.

  • grover chang

    Kings out of fouls. Thank you Lin.

  • zxcvb

    Everyone getting light calls 20ft from the hoop. Lin can’t get hard hacks at the rim.

  • zxcvb

    Zeller is just awful. So helpless.

  • LinMad

    NO FOUL?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    give the dman ball to Lin.

  • zxcvb

    Hornets not playing teamball, except for Lin.

    Game over.

  • golfhacker

    Scared of DMC.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Back to single digit game!

  • LinMad

    refs are bad this game

  • zxcvb

    Scared of everyone! Haven’t seen him do anything good on defense all season.

  • LinJa

    Cousins destroying hornets with ref power

  • cdblue10

    6 point game

  • blubell

    Kemba 3

  • spiderman

    need hansbrough

  • Rick Johnson

    got to foul out Cousins

  • kauaiblue

    Hoes he doing??

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    4 ponts game.

  • cshot

    playing solid D. off night on O

  • LinJa

    Great defensively. Offensively poor

  • LinMad

    wow this is a 4 point game. This lineup works.

  • grover chang

    Good in the fourth. Defense and drawing fouls and making shots help turn a 21 point deficit around.

  • kauaiblue

    Again? Ok, thanks!

  • cdblue10

    4 points game.If Cliff have made an adjustment earlier,the team had buy more time to catch up

  • kauaiblue

    Thanks!

  • kauaiblue

    All right! Go jlin!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is the reverse of the 3rdQ

  • LinJa

    It makes a good basketball game lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep. Hopefully it isn’t too late. These 5 are really good. Enjoy watching the game.

  • LinJa

    Someone was missing all of third quarter. Oh yeah it’s lin

  • NONONO

    They should fire cliff if Hornets loses this game.

  • sws94

    Kemba’s been close to outstanding today. Made a few errors but he’s played great. Kaminsky turned the game around. Lin’s in at the end.

  • cdblue10

    yep just 2 ball possessions,need to have a good D on the next possessions on Kings

  • LinMad

    Is it just a coincidence this started happening when Lin came back in? I doubt it.

  • sws94

    I don’t understand your problem with Cliff. He’s coached a good game and brought his team back from what looked like a blowout.

  • LinJa

    Lin made key shots. That three and lay up was good timing. Created the spark.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m predicting. Cousins will foul out.

  • NONONO

    Lin brought the game back. Did you see how Lin defend Belinelli?

  • cdblue10

    nice D

  • sws94

    Kaminsky turned the game around. Not Lin. Lin has helped a little but it’s Kemba and Kaminsky that’s made the huge difference.

  • blubell

    Tie?

  • cdblue10

    Great defense Linnnnnnn

  • Chopz

    Lin all over bellinelli, i love it

  • sport

    another bad offensive game by Lin :/

  • jeremy

    should have shot that Lin

  • real-dsb

    funny how Kemba gets open drives in Q4 since Lin came in =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Kings must be over the limit now.

  • LinJa

    Lin is hesitating. But Kemba closed it.

  • zxcvb

    Lin is the catalyst for all this. With him in there, the defense and spacing is fixed.

  • blubell

    Great defensively

  • LinMad

    Now Kemba can smile!!! I’m loving this

  • kauaiblue

    Did jlin contribute??

  • golfhacker

    Lin for the game winner!

  • jeremy

    bad game period
    Lin is an offensive player he needs to score more

  • grover chang

    Good d and who drew all these fouls so hornets could go to the line and stop the clock? Lin!!!

  • real-dsb

    wow. tied at 108. 20+ pt swing since Lin came in Q4

  • zxcvb

    Look at the +/-

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Bingo tie game and the Hornets has the momentum.

  • joyce ward

    What are you talking about, lin was the game changer.smh

  • sws94

    Big D there from Lin.

  • cdblue10

    Kembaaaaaaa

  • real-dsb

    great diving save by Kemba!

  • Pete Roces

    shut down defense by Lin on Belinelli!

  • LinJa

    He is effecting the Kings defensive rotation just by being on court. Kemba gets open often

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The biggest comeback ever since Lin checks in.

  • Alain Gervais

    Kemba having a h*** of a game

  • real-dsb

    Clifford should have taken his own advice and played Lin with Kemba

  • LinMad

    KEMBA ON FIRE!!!

  • cshot

    kembaaaaa on FIRE

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He has to put Lamb in to lose big in the Q3

  • LinMad

    I LOVE THIS!!!! KEMBA LIN = WIN

  • jeremy

    Hornets came back cool but Lin 4 more pts plz!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Wow, Kemba hitting everything.

  • LinJa

    They didn’t want to close on Kemba cus Lin was gonna be left open. Kemba saw it and took the jumper

  • aras

    Keeeeeeeeeemba oooooooon fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiire!!!!

  • grover chang

    He’s been awesome. But always a team concept me need players around him to open things up.

  • Alain Gervais

    as long as we win I’m happy

  • real-dsb

    I guarantee Lin will close this game. LOL

  • LinMad

    ya

  • kauaiblue

    Ehh… he didnt get the ball much? Not so excited about win…

  • sws94

    He can be clutch. I’ve seen it before. He’s really putting on a show. Good for Kemba.

  • Steppen03

    Firing CCliff ???
    Come on now, he’s Not the problem. This Team IS still a New team by all means… Old and bad habits don’t just change. Good chemistry takes a really time to build…

  • sws94

    No. Lin helped but this is Kemba and Kaminsky’s game.

  • LinJa

    Watching Lin contribute on defense is a change. Made another awesome block in 1st half

  • zxcvb

    Okay, when Kemba shoots like this, he’s good. Ha.

    But Lin is the catalyst for all this. Without him, Kemba and Co. made it a 21pt deficit.

  • real-dsb

    4q1m terrible shot select by Batum! what was he thinking???

  • kauaiblue

    Even if he didnt get a chance to play O?

  • Alain Gervais

    2nd 3 looked good

  • cshot

    dumb shot……

  • LinMad

    wth was that Batum

  • Chopz

    Pass the rock batum

  • grover chang

    Really. This game is so excited. Lin in and helping. He is always working for the win.

  • zxcvb

    I know everyone’s drooling over Kemba, but this is not quality basketball. It’s good defense leading to open Js, which Kemba is hitting today. Without Lin, he did f**k all and ruined the game in the 3Q.

  • leeda harun

    What can we do..just support lin

  • LinMad

    should have called time out?

  • jeremy

    THATS WHY YOU WERE THE 4TH OPTION IN PORTLAND BATUM YOU AINT THAT GOOD!

  • cdblue10

    guard the 3 point line

  • cshot

    he had 7 seconds left on that play………dumb shot selection by batum

  • zxcvb

    Hoping for OT.

  • golfhacker

    Lin playing decoy on offense again.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I dare Clifford to put Lamb in now.

  • LinJa

    Is it ok to want this game to go overtime? So that Lin can play more lol

  • kauaiblue

    Ok, ill give it a chance but hes better scorer and player than any of those other guys…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep hope they can get a win!

  • blubell

    Ot?

  • cdblue10

    give that ball to Lin….

  • LinMad

    lol i wouldn’t mind but i want Hornets to win already cause they desrve to fromt hat comebaack

  • grover chang

    Ugh belllanaloli

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Tie the game.

  • blubell

    Lin for the Win

  • sport

    Didn’t watch game, why didn’t he take more shots? Was he playing PG? Did his teammates pass to him?

  • joyce ward

    Yep, lin opened up his game by good defense and key plays.

  • NONONO

    Kinds do not want OT!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If this game goes into OT, the Hornets will win it.

  • sws94

    Get a stop, win the game. Don’t give up a 3. No dumb fouls.

  • zxcvb

    Clutch shot. Well-defended, barely rattled in.

  • LinMad

    I think u got ur wish for OT

  • LinJa

    Uh oh, wish might come true.

  • NONONO

    WATCH 3 – LIN D!!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    110 v 110 with 0.07 left. Win or overtime.

  • cshot

    if coach cliff draws a decoy play and gives it to lin instead, i will love him forever

  • blubell

    No. Lin for the Win

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    No need to take risk. play for the final shot. Hornets is going to win it in OT.

  • zxcvb

    Kemba’s MO is the same every year: insane one game. 5-20 the next game.

  • blubell

    Jeremy in bounding

  • Rick Johnson

    Should try to drive to get basket or draw foul.

  • LinJa

    Haha true. Except Lin to the basket. Back door cut

  • NONONO

    Belinelli was shut down by Lin until now.

  • grover chang

    Wallllllker!!!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Just hold on the ball. Clifford

  • CaliUSMC

    walker is a beast this game

  • Alain Gervais

    What kind of defense was that

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Walker 0.007

  • kauaiblue

    Walker is just not that impressive… hes just a scorer opened up by jlin and batum…

  • Rick Johnson

    They didn’t wan’t to get called for a foul

  • LinMad

    KEMBA WON IT! NOT GONNA LIE!!!!

  • NONONO

    Walker will take it

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This must be the biggest comeback for the Hornets. Look at the +/- and find out who is making the team win.

  • jeremy

    someone foul Gay and tie the game

  • sws94

    Fantastic game by Kemba. Congrats.

  • CaliUSMC

    15-21 is pretty impressive in my eyes

  • CaliUSMC

    tie game rofl

  • blubell

    Ot? Lol

  • LinMad

    watch them make a 3 in 0.007 seconds

  • grover chang

    Wow. Great play

  • golfhacker

    You see Kemba hesitate to freeze Rudy Gay and got by him for layup? Beats always going full speed into the paint.

  • jeremy

    YEEESSSSSSSSSS

  • Alain Gervais

    over time

  • cshot

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

  • cdblue10

    shsyt

  • jeremy

    OVERTIMMEEE

  • zxcvb

    Amazing shooting game by Kemba.

    But he’s also why we’re going to OT. This is SLOPBALL where Kemba is hot.

  • Steppen03

    YES, WE WON!!!
    Linsanity Full Trottle!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    I kinda wanted this

  • sws94

    He’s impressive this game. Credit where credit is due. He scored in traffic, open, he just scored and he came up big in the 4th. 35 point game with 5 assists and 5 rebounds.

  • NONONO

    LIN+13

  • LinMad

    WHAT!??????????OMG

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Taking Zeller out is the worst move. You need height! Bad coaching!

  • LAJane

    OMG. OT

  • real-dsb

    unbelievable. gotta hand it to Karl for drawing up the play

  • blubell

    Dishes? Lol

  • Mr Chuckles

    Aw come on. Kemba is playing great. No need to throw shade.

  • CaliUSMC

    Karl with that supersonic play

  • zxcvb

    Wish he were Lin’s coach.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Time for Hairsanity!

  • cdblue10

    Yep,that’s a bad move

  • spiderman

    lol

  • grover chang

    OT. Well hornets lucky they got two days off.

  • Chopz

    Ot, yay five more minutes for lin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    OT. WOW! Let’s see who are the 5 are playing in OT.

  • sws94

    OT. Crazy play.

  • real-dsb

    premature celebration

  • NONONO

    NO BAD AT ALL

  • LinMad

    go with the unit that was doing good.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Put Lamb in and the Hornets will be slaughtered.

  • CaliUSMC

    lin doesnt look happy.. he looks sad

  • sws94

    Same 5 on the court now.

  • zxcvb

    This kind of slopball is not good: Kemba on fire or not.

    You can beat the Kings like this, but not any good teams.

  • cdblue10

    Hairston,Al,Batum,Kemba and williams

  • GoJLin!

    Rondo 20 AST but with -6; JLin good D with +13!

  • LinMad

    Rondo only got 2 assists in 4th when Lin was guarding him but still 20 assists total is crazy. Someone failed hardcore early game

  • kauaiblue

    Bc hes just a garbage man cleaning up for walker and batum, both inferior players…

  • zxcvb

    I hope the ball actually moves this OT. 4th quarter was defense and Kemba Js. Not sustainable.

  • LinJa

    GO LIN Overdrive mode!

  • NONONO

    IT is LIN time

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    So Cousins and McLemore fouled out???

  • golfhacker

    He won’t touch the ball.

  • blubell

    Tank

  • cdblue10

    Wow Kaminsky

  • zxcvb

    Good ball movement there.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The bigs of Kings are all on foul trouble!

  • blubell

    And 1

  • cdblue10

    and 1

  • CaliUSMC

    GO LIN!

  • Chopz

    Lin!

  • cdblue10

    yeaaayyyyyy

  • zxcvb

    LINNNNNN

  • zxcvb

    Sorry Kemba. Teamball is the WINNING recipe.

  • CaliUSMC

    DAMN. The arena would have exploded if Lin made that 3.

  • LinJa

    Lin heating up

  • zxcvb

    Great ball movement! Wanted that 3 tho!

  • zxcvb

    Damn if Lin got that 3….

  • NONONO

    CODY+LIN=3

  • zxcvb

    Bad by Nic. MOVE THE BALL.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    3 for Lin

  • kauaiblue

    Shouldnt it be a 5 pt lead?

  • LinMad

    Batum taking very bad shots

  • blubell

    Zellet rebounding machine

  • CaliUSMC

    LIN WIT DA DRIVE

  • blubell

    Lin

  • cdblue10

  • GoJLin!

    JLin the winer!

  • Chopz

    Lin reverse lay

  • zxcvb

    SWEET DRIVE.

  • zxcvb

    Kemba put on a show.

    But TEAMBALL (aka LIN BALL) won this game. Just look at that +/-.

  • jeremy

    YESSSSS DOUBLE DIGITS!!!! im so happt

  • james brown

    JLINNnnnnnbnnnnnnnnnnnn

  • cshot

    MR OVERTIME!!!!

  • LinMad

    Patrick gave Lin a high five

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    For score over 100, HORNETS CAN’T LOSE.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin!!!!!!!!!!! Go Go Go. Put the game away!

  • grover chang

    Energy just picked up and the crowd got loud and excited since Lin entered in the fourth when hornets were 22 down.

  • Chopz

    Mr Ot, jeremy lin.just ask portland.

  • JLin, Mr. Clutch OT!!!!!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    Went from an ok game to a great game

  • aras

    THATS MORE LIKE IT LIN CONFIDENCE DAMNIT !!!

  • LinMad

    Lin showed up today when needed defensively and offensively.

  • CaliUSMC

    Thats rare. Ewing is always chillen.

  • Kemba must be exhausted and thankful to have Lin as a partner to help take over.

  • LW

  • Chopz

    Gotta watch the replay

  • NONONO

    LIN’s D is A, O is A on OT!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Like I said after Lin’s bad 1st half — DON’T WORRY. %s will even out.

    Lin just needs consistent major minutes. He’s getting that and proving me right!

  • I’m thankful for OT =)
    Yessssss, go JLin!!!!

  • sws94

    Vintage OT Lin showing up now.

  • LinJa

    I like Mr. Overtime!

  • sws94

    Mr. OT in this game. HE has 5 points.

  • grover chang

    Charlotte. Are you not Lintertained?!

  • CaliUSMC

    WHERES DA WHISTLE

  • NONONO

    Lin plays his the best D in 4th q, the best O and D in OT!!!

  • zxcvb

    FRIGGIN REFS

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kaminsky and Lin will take over the game

  • cdblue10

    LIn was pulled by Koufus

  • Chopz

    Can we get a foul

  • cshot

    REFs please…..

  • CaliUSMC

    really wish Lin went for the floater man

  • zxcvb

    Lin cheated on 6FTs at least tonight. And that continuation bucket.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin getting no calls

  • I am The Jason

    This is why Lin should close games

  • LinMad

    These refs are horrible so many missed calls

  • Mr Chuckles

    Apparently not.

  • cdblue10

    from the defensive end

  • grover chang

    Lol what’s new

  • MorlockO

    noticed that home refs really swallowing their whistles for lin last few games….

  • Alain Gervais

    Lol

  • cdblue10

    yeah that one too,but dramatic wins are better

  • LinJa

    Refs are extra disgusting

  • zxcvb

    Just on Lin. Everyone else got light contact 20ft from the hoop.

  • aras

    how is that not a foul screw these refs terrible

  • Chopz

    Swing the ball frank

  • sws94

    These refs are nuts. So many fouls not being called.

  • zxcvb

    Slop ball again — Frank MUST pass to wide-open Lin there.

  • real-dsb

    ot-1m embarrassing block on Kam

  • grover chang

    What happened to home court reffing?

  • zxcvb

    Had no angle, but tried to be the hero. Terrible.

  • Alain Gervais

    idk if he saw him…..tunnel vision

  • Chopz

    Dammit rookie

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Guess what Cousins and McLemore are out!

  • MorlockO

    one more defensive stop please!!!

  • LinMad

    double OT? LOL

  • LinJa

    Too busy looking at the floor where he dribbles the ball. He didn’t even see the second guy under the basket till it’s too late. He totally missed wide open lin

  • grover chang

    Now they call a foul? Smh

  • zxcvb

    I’m down!

  • Chopz

    No my heart can’t take it.

  • CaliUSMC

    Its amazing to me that Kemba is close to 50mins with 0 fouls.

  • cdblue10

    Nada if Lin is in your team

  • zxcvb

    Doesn’t play any defense. Not hard when you do that!

  • CaliUSMC

    lol

  • blubell

    Clutch

  • LinMad

    does that mean he’s not defending?

  • CaliUSMC

    LIN!!!

  • MorlockO

    BOOM!

  • cdblue10

    This guy LINNNNNN is clutch

  • grover chang

    Need a basket. Go Lin.

  • zxcvb

    LIN????

    U SERIOUS???!!!

  • Chopz

    Damn midrange

  • CaliUSMC

    KEMBA giving Lin props on the bench!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Mr. Clutch!

  • sport

    Walker got to play 45 minutes this game when Lin barely reached 29 minutes right now with OT!

  • #7 scored the last 7pts in OT.
    YESSSSSSS!!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    LINNNNNNN !!!

  • Mr Chuckles

    Clutch. So clutch.

  • Promo Sports World

    It’s about when you show up

  • aras

    THATS IT LIIIIIIIN

  • cshot

    swaggggy step back right there

  • zxcvb

    Lin just needs minutes. He’s like most attacking PGs. Cold for 10m. Then hot for 10m.

  • Hornets is LINNING, baby!!!!
    BOOYAH!!!

  • LinMad

    Lin has the experience to close games

  • sws94

    Yes.

  • Rick Johnson

    He just needs minutes to get his rhythm

  • james brown

    LINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

  • sport

    Why didn’t he play like this from start to finish?

  • LinMad

    ya I think if Lin gets his minutes he’ll get his time to do damage

  • cdblue10

    I would love to have the last shots too…

  • LW

    Lin is in the zone now!

  • zxcvb

    That jumper was so cocky!

  • CaliUSMC

    GOOD D BY HORNETS

  • LinJa

    Lin needs to run hot. He is an all-in kinda of guy. You keep him mediocre, he will be.

  • Chopz

    Damn ballhawking defense

  • Alain Gervais

    Im proud of this team

  • LinMad

    WASN’T THAT A UP AND DOWN?!

  • cdblue10

    Lin will get more trust from this game….I love it!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Lin’s teamball and Frank’s speed on defense turned the game around.

  • Chopz

    Thats why he has the rooster haircut

  • NONONO

    make game fun!

  • CaliUSMC

    Has lamb played at all in OT?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin will shoot FTs to seal the game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If Hornets want to lose big!

  • Mr Chuckles

    So glad this game went to OT.

  • spiderman

    goodness.. 30 minutes for Lin!

  • sport

    Nope Walker is.

  • CaliUSMC

    Man I want Lin to shoot the last pair of free throws plz

  • zxcvb

    Kemba gets the clinching FTs…eh.

    Cliff should reward Lin.

  • Chopz

    Nope, he’s on the lamb

  • zxcvb

    Lin never gets these easy FT points like Kemba.

  • sport

    Lin had to inbound the pass not going to get it.

  • CaliUSMC

    YES.. FT’S

  • LinMad

    I bet u Batum wanted those FTs

  • blubell

    Lin ft

  • zxcvb

    Hey, he got endgame FTs! First time this season!

  • Lin got fouled. 2 FTs, yeahh!!

  • CaliUSMC

    DAMN IT LIN

  • MorlockO

    lol lin missed!

  • LinJa

    Kemba’s only points lol

  • spiderman

    brain fart 🙂

  • zxcvb

    Okay, nevermind! Lin making me look bad. Can’t hit FTs.

  • LinMad

    DId he make one?

  • CaliUSMC

    LIN WITH THE ASSIST TO KEMBA lol

  • real-dsb

    Why didn’t Clifford put Lin in 3rd quarter when they gave SAC a 22 pt lead?

    Because Clifford just wanted Lin’s comeback to look better. In fact, Clifford let SAC tie it with 0.7 in regulation so that Lin could thrill the crowd with an overtime win.

    =p

  • 127-122 Hornets won!!!

    HAIRSANITY!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Come on Lin, haha. Great game! Needed that layup tho!

  • spiderman

    lol

  • blubell

    Yes finally!

  • Chopz

    Now thats teamball. No complaints from Lin nation.

  • Job713

    Lin didn’t want to put that layup in?

  • grover chang

    I love Jeremy Lin. He makes games so fun to watch. If Lin never entered the game this would be a blow out for the kings.

  • CaliUSMC

    Yeah he could have easily scored 20+ tonight. Gotta work on them ft’s and.. layups apparently lol

  • Alain Gervais

    looked like he walked

  • LimitedEdition

    Lin is just too kind

  • zxcvb

    Probably exhausted and flubbed it.

  • golfhacker

    Could have had 6/12 FG%.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOLOL You are so funny!

  • LinMad

    That comeback was real ever since Lin came in

  • LinJa

    Lin should’ve put he exclamation on OT with that FT and layup

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    KEMVP!

  • zxcvb

    Shoulda dunked!

  • GoJLin!

    Lin did not play on 3Q, hornets 14 to 31, Lin play on 4Q, hornet got 38 to 21; then JLin shine on the OT to help hornets to win this game! Go JLIN GO!

  • CaliUSMC

    I think he just got too excited lol

  • leeda harun

    Thank you god..

  • NONONO

    Lin is Game saving specialist!

  • LW

    You mean Cliff is just toying with the Kings?

  • zxcvb

    That last jumper by Lin was EPIC. Clinched the game and was so gutsy.

  • blubell

    As always

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This game tells yu the difference between a lamb and a li(o)n.

  • NONONO

    I think Lin has last good assist!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nailed

  • zxcvb

    Nothing wrong with Lamb playing 25mpg. But Hairston??!!! Such BS.

  • LimitedEdition

    I believe Hornets can move to 8 seed tonight if NKY lose (most likely).

  • AlexBB

    God

  • NONONO

    nonono

  • james brown

    CLUTCH!!!

  • blubell

    CHA RADIO: Jeremy is one of the great heroes of the game

  • real-dsb

    I told you before the game CHA would beat SAC. That makes me 11 for 11 for game predictions this year. =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I still wonder why didn’t the Hornets choose the Li(o)n. They prefer the lamb.

  • LinMad

    Lin 5-12 FG
    Batum 5-16 FG <- no one called him out lol

  • CJSHYY

    Really? I am sort of surprised why Lin took so many shots in OT?

  • spiderman

    outstanding DEFENSE!

  • LinJa

    I think it counted as missed fg lol

  • Job713

    Can you give a final season record? Take your time to go through the schedule 😛

  • zxcvb

    Imagine Lin’s FG% with correct calls.

    At least 2 misses taken away and 1 FG make added w/ continuation.

  • LinMad

    Kemba tired, Batum taking bad shots

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOWOWOW! 3rd qtr lost big in 3 qtr. Thought this was a loss game. Glad that JLin’s effect on 4th qtr. 2nd highest +18 with Kaminsky as +23

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    His fresh legs tell him to.

  • LinMad

    refs were blind today

  • spiderman

    And no one will, which happens REGULARLY for “stars”

  • cdblue10

    With this win he sealed his 8-12mil/yr

  • NONONO

    Kemba did great! Lin shut Kings hot hands Belinelli off in 4th q.

  • zxcvb

    Blind most games when it comes to Lin. He doesn’t get calls at the rim that every other player gets. They just assume the “unathletic” Asian guy got blocked.

    I didn’t even include light contact plays or “TOs” deep in traffic — other players don’t get those either. I’m only counting HARD fouls in front of the ref.

  • CJSHYY

    Bc Lin didn’t shoot well so Cliff used Lamb to get more pts.

  • sws94

    Lin gave away the last 2 points, don’t know how he missed that bunny but it was almost like an assist to Kemba.

  • blubell

    CHA: Lin came in and made big shots.
    Lots of love for Jeremy and Zeller.

  • james brown

    Batum tried it but failed thats why he did pass the ball to JLIN!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nop highest is Kaminsky +23.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Put in the Lamb and the Hornets would be roasted.
    Did anyone tell you tall JLamb is not like JLi(o)n

  • NONONO

    Serious question – Why Lin did not dunk the last shot???????????????

  • Steppen03

    now…. WE WIN!!!
    We needed this… this kind of comback and heart will go a long ways… CCliff redeemed himself.

  • aras

    looool lin was critical in overtime but that layup in the end…..never happened

  • CJSHYY

    From radio?

  • sws94

    There were nasty fouls on shots by Zeller and Frank that weren’t called also. I think just as many as Lin. They were just horrible, those refs, and Cousins should have been out of the game much earlier.

  • james brown

    but they acknowledge Batum as the belinelli shutter?

  • Rick Johnson

    New York going to lose. That should move Charlotte back up into the 8th playoff position.

  • cdblue10

    I didn’t see that…

  • sws94

    He doesn’t usually dunk. He just shot it too hard for some reason. Maybe he was going too fast. No problem, Kemba was there for the putback.

  • zxcvb

    They’re flat-footed going up in traffic, in a sea of hands. Those are fine.

    Lin gets hammered one on one on drives…unacceptable. Everyone gets those. Or at least they get the next one as a makeup. Lin was 2/10 on those 50/50 calls tonight.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! I think NYK will loss.

  • blubell

    Yes Lin yes win 😀

  • Arsenium12 .

    From ESPN Scoreboard …

    FINAL: HORNETS 127, KINGS 122 (OT)

    Kemba Walker poured in 39 points and Jeremy Lin dropped 8 points in the decisive overtime as Charlotte overcame a 22-point deficit for the largest second-half comeback this season.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Not the Lion! He simply has a bad name.

  • blubell

    Yes.

  • Chopz

    Lin scored 8 of the hornets 15 points in ot, clutch. Kaminsky got 3 and walker got 4

  • CJSHYY

    OT it’s all about Lin. Ya!

  • sws94

    Typical Lin OT performance.

  • zxcvb

    Even with the awful non-calls, Lin finished 5-9 after the first half.

    Just needs consistent big minutes! His defense and teamball alone justify playing him 28-30mpg.

  • leeda harun

    Ooh yeah 🙂

  • LW

    You mean they can’t come back like the Hornets and go to OT?

  • NONONO

    I know he can do it. Maybe he does not want get injured unless it is dead or alive ball.

  • blubell

    Yeah. No biggie 😀

  • Whitman Lam

    I just watched a game last week where Golden State Warriors came back from a 23 point 1st half deficit to beat the Clippers in the 4th quarter. Anything is possible.

  • noob

    Clifford really had faith in Lin. Left him in the whole 4th quarter even though Lin was playing a horrible game in the first half. Lin would have been benched in previous years

  • NONONO

    It proves that Cliff will keep Lin in the game if it is too close as he always. What a game saver!

  • Chopz

    Lin scored 53 percent of the shots in ot, i got a portland flashback.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    JLin plays like a lion out of the cage roaring in the 4Q. RoooaaaaR.

  • real-dsb

    Probably too tired by OT to dunk it. He hasn’t attempted a dunked in a game since 2 seasons ago.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Chopz

    U sir are 100 percent correct.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clifford has no choice because Lamb was in foul trouble!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Rick Johnson

    NYK already lost now 78-95 to Miami. So Charlotte moves up to 8th. If Washington loses to Indiana tomorrow they could move into 7th.

  • CJSHYY

    Why no Zeller?

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • real-dsb

    I want to see that starting lineup by the end of the year:
    Zeller, Kaminsky, Batum, Lin, Kemba

  • GoJLin!

    This hornets even better, end of 3rdQ, still loss 21 point, then JLin’s number got called, Ya, turn a sad game to an wonderful win!

  • spiderman

    which is a problem… Not a good strategy to play catch up all the time

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CJSHYY

    Maybe after Al get traded.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • blubell

    Yes. Can we stop with the I hate Clifford talk now?

  • 1mtoldman

    INAL: HORNETS 127, KINGS 122 (OT)

    Kemba Walker poured in 21 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter and Jeremy Lin dropped 8 points in the decisive overtime as Charlotte overcame a 22-point deficit for the largest second-half comeback this season.

    hornets team site post on espn scoreboard.

  • NONONO

    Rondo CANNOT beat LIN with 20 assists .

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Can you believe that this is an off night for Jeremy the Lion King.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • 1mtoldman

    batum was actually the weakest link in this “comeback” lineup.

    (you just show up at the end to brag about your prognostication powers?)–ok swami whats yer predictions for rest of home stand?)

  • cdblue10

    Nice job Hornets…..this team is brewing something special.

  • 1mtoldman

    u can still hate cliff because it takes him so long to figure it out!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Playing with inspiration, Lin leads the Hornets in OT over the Kings. Who’s the King now?

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • 1mtoldman

    mr 5th quarter.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin’s hair is growing out like a lion; not Saiyan.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • blubell

    Lol. But hate is a strong word

  • 1mtoldman

    like the spike, fear the spike

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah how about critique?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

  • leeda harun

    the lion king 🙂

  • xeroid

    He was on Belinelli early. then when Walker came back on Collison.

  • Chopz

    He’s got a lion king blanket, his fav.

    https://youtu.be/pire95xeYk4

  • JJ Hui

    The King post game commentator said about Lin hair, they praising Lin’s play at the OT.

  • spiderman

    surprising news from CBS — they tend to be haters

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    King Lin. King Lion. King whatsoever.
    I still don’t know why the Hornets prefer lamb over lion.

  • Whitman Lam

    Probably cause he doesn’t want to get injured like Lamb did on his dunks.

  • JJ Hui

    George Karl said “Lin was busting us” post game interview! LOL,

  • JW

    Karl sounded so depressed

  • joyce ward

    Han ‏@yaboyhan 29m29 minutes ago
    JEREMY LIN JUST SCORCHED MY KINGS IN OVERTIME. HOW COULD YOU MAN I USED TO LOOK UP TO YOU

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    His hair will grow like the Lion King. Gotcha!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    LOL. Hate as much as you want. The team won.

  • leeda harun

    lol

  • JJ Hui

    He said was his fault

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Come on. After a win like that. You should give him some room for his emotional outbreak, dear moderator.

  • Chopz

    That’s cuz he wishes he could coach the hornets and lin instead of the kings and cousins.

  • NONONO

    I guess more minutes he plays, less distraction his hair put on his shots.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Did anyone forget the 3 games winning streak?

  • JW

    King’s post game commentators really criticizing what happened at the end on the coach.

  • cshot

    Like I stated way earlier during the game….Jeremy just needs his minutes….And honest refs lol

  • Parent of an 8th Grader

    I think George Karl once commented that Lin was the “engine” of the team when Lin was with either the Rockets or the Lakers. This game surely reinforced his assessment of Lin.

  • CJSHYY

    Rocket.

  • 1mtoldman

    i think after 2nite hornets will be sitting 7th in east? (pistons losing, knicks lost).

  • Chopz

    One of the good things about this win, is at least we’ll have more positive posts than negative ones until the next game : )

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Go and see the last 2 minutes report of calls for the ref.

  • Rick Johnson

    I think Karl was with Denver and JLin was on the Rockets.

  • Alain Gervais

    has to be. if Lakers that engine was outside the car

  • 1mtoldman

    i think 7th with pistons losing?

  • Chopz

    But the force is strong with his hair, Lord Vader. Strong with hairspray that is.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    With all due respect to our game MVP Kemba but without Lin he was missed in the 3rd Q. Once Lin was on in the 4thQ, he was loosed.

  • JJ Hui

    Yeah, kind of sad and too much blame.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    But they gave up more than they got.

  • cshot

    i think so but hornets have to do good and hopefully beat the wizards to move up to a safer seed

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Nope the last FT was from Lin but he missed one too.

  • JW

    espn showing CHA #8 above both those teams.

  • spiderman

    they should be criticizing Clifford for letting Lin play

  • LW

    Okay, the beard, the spike, which do you fear?

  • CJSHYY

    Kemba was shooting well but w/o Lin, Hornets more likely will loss…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is such a gutsy win which is important for the games later on.
    After virtually being trounced in the 3Q, they come back with Lin.

  • james brown

    Until Cliff realizes that he has a player whose not been given enough support from Coaching staff during the game, he will never see the light at the end of the tunnel!

  • JW

    kemba and batum were 47 and 43 minutes.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Will definitely loss w/o Lin’s 8 points in OT.

  • grover chang

    Well why didnt cousin play toward the end. He was dominating and zeller got key rebounds with cousin out.

  • Chopz

    hey teamball, that’s all we ask. If you ask me to pick only 1 of 2 things – Score more points in the game or score clutch points in ot, I’ll take the clutch points in ot anytime because that’s when the game really counts.

  • NONONO

    I could have hated him if it toke Lin out in OT. I commented right before OT -> “IT is LIN time”. I am glad it was!

  • Rick Johnson

    Pistons are behind Charlotte, if they lose they will be further out but Charlotte will still be in 8th. Washington has to lose. After passing Washington then it gets really tough. Top 6 are Cleveland / Miami / Chicago / Indiana / Toronto / Atlanta. Charlotte really going to have to take it to the next level to break into that top 6. Big comebacks won’t work on those teams.

  • james brown

    but cliff waived JLIN during the 3rd Q when his assistant staff asked Cliff about JLIN and called him, but cliff sent him back to sit..no minutes during 3rd quarter…how many times MORE??????

  • JW

    they said cousin got some sort of back injury. might be 3rd qtr. came back and tried again, but was hurting too much

  • stam

    Wow didn’t watch the game but it looked like Lin was Vital in OT. Nice! Kemba killed it wow!

  • LinJa

    Ankle injury

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This game is telling the FO a message:
    You want me to play Lamb, we get trounced by 22 points. Without Lin, no win. From now on, leave me alone to do the coaching. You can sign anyone when the season is over. Stupid!

  • blubell

    Good luck with the latter lol

  • cshot

    some people are just stubborn….i miss d antoni so bad

  • new postgame thread
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g14-hairsanity-in-overtime-win/
    G14 Hairsanity in Overtime Win

    Jeremy Lin started slow but was his Hairsanity was tremendous in scoring 8 points (7 straight!) out of his 14pts in the 127-122 OT win vs the Kings. His 8 out of 15 Hornets points were simply the definition and clutchness!

    CBSSports even commemorated this excellent Hairsanity game to tell our future grandkids someday 🙂

  • blubell

    He was not coaching that year. It was game against the spurs he said that.

  • sport

    No because Lin still doesn’t get 30+ minutes and play PG.

  • JW

    I think I saw kemba fell on his leg. but he continued for awhile. hopefully not serious.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin will earn more respect from coaches and teammates after this game. This is a toughness test for those have not experienced playing with Lin before.

    BTW, did you see Kemvp hugged Lin in overtime? That’s great movement.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Kings has to bow down to King Lin. Sorry to rub it in, my dear. LOL, Ijust can’t help it。

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He had picked up 5 fouls already。

  • LinJa

    The lanes opened up. Cousin and mclemore wasn’t playing either

  • sport

    Lin doesn’t seem to jump high enough for dunks. He can do them but not as often nor easy compared to Lamb and Parsons.

  • NONONO

    I was afraid Cliff would have given up after 3rd quarter and put Brian in as pg again. Should we give him some credit for trusting Lin so much with 20 pts deficits and bad shooting night for Lin?

  • LinMad

    i missed that hug but I saw Patrick Ewing high five Lin

  • Steppen03

    Porzi, Prozi! Has another good game tonight – 20pt & 14reb. MIA in the first half but he picked it up in the second half.

  • LinMad

    I think he saw Lin’s value in D. It outweighed Lamb. OT was probably a shocker for Cliff. Probably didn’t think Lin would score that much.

  • LinJa

    Brian was off, personal issues

  • NONONO

    Take credit back.

  • Rick Johnson

    Momentum totally changed when Lin came in. Did Jefferson sit at the same time Lin came in or was that earlier?

  • gasparthe2nd

    That must have been it…Lamb had outscored Lin by quite a bit.

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya I think he put Lin in for defense because the Hornets defense sucked in the 3 rd quarter.

  • Steppen03

    Off topic:
    Didn’t follow the Rousey/Holmes fight… But: 1) why was Rousey so pissed at Holmes during weigh in ? and calling Holmes’ a fake nice girl ??

  • Rick Johnson

    Also Cousins was in foul trouble so didn’t want to foul out on defense.

  • james brown

    opponent coach always knew who the player who killed them when JLIN is playing, but the sooner that Jlin played with that coach with the same team, he’s the last person who know how to use jeremy effectively!

  • sws94

    Kemba was hit hard repeatedly, Zeller, Frank, the whole team. It wasn’t the refs just not calling fouls for Lin. It was everybody on the team. The refs were terrible.

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes NYK lost and Hornets in 8th. If Pacers beat Washington tomorrow Hornets can move to 7th seed.

  • NONONO

    Hornets Will beat Knicks at home!

  • james brown

    That’s what Jlin always says, when the chip is down and theres no one to turn to, JLIN switched on his cape for its the right SHOWTIME!!!

    QUALITY Points to get the win.

  • sws94

    Cousins looked shot.

  • james brown

    he’s abig man with a good fundamentals..so scoring points will be easy for him and rebounding too..unless Mellow start to give his claw oncemore!!!LOL

  • Chopz

    She knew Holly Holm could fight really well standing up and she had reach on her, plus they had a scuffle where Holly’s arm hit Rousey. Also Holly is very nice and sweet and gives everybody credit for everything instead of herself, kind of like lin. Some people can’t stand that.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • sws94

    I disagree. Lin was a factor but Kaminsky was the game changer and how on Earth is 21 points in the 4Q not outstanding. No way does the team win this game without Kemba. Lin was terrific offensively in the OT, but he wasn’t on his game offensively before. I credit Lin with hustle and defense throughout the game and him being in the lineup opens things up for others in the 4th but I say this with no hesitation whatsoever, Kemba had an OUTSTANDING game. He’s Lin’s team mate and I feel good for him.

  • sws94

    Lin is the story in OT. Kemba, Zeller and Kaminsky are the stories in the regulation time.

  • james brown

    is it hate if you’re just stating the obvious?

  • james brown

    and liability in defense..seems lost his focused when lead was 20..i thing he was about to CRY…?LOL!

  • james brown

    it is where you shout a WIN!!!

  • NONONO
  • james brown

    KW walker was still there, i think Cliff already saw the game today and knew what will going to happen thats why he didn’t play Jlin at the 3rdQ because he will be effective during OT…nice “deja vu” Cliff

  • james brown

    thats one..3rd q has no Defense at all!

  • Steppen03

    Thanks,
    Rousey should’ve stayed classy and show more respect to her opponent- touch Holm’s darn gloves! Feeling a little too confident.

  • james brown

    yes because he was LINNING and KW was so tired..it seems that when you feel you are doing thing on your own and suddenly there’s someone who offered a hand that out of the blue, you hugged him not because you can’t do it anymore but for once you know your NOT Alone!

  • Chopz

    That’s what lady gaga said. She said “that’s what you get for not touching gloves.”

  • Steppen03

    People quickly forgot how they got there – by others giving them a chance and respects.

  • kauaiblue

    Not throwing shade… walker olayed great… give jlin that same oppt and you will get better results…

  • Chopz

    Oh Bee-Hive yourselves.

  • Chopz

    Do you want to Lin? or do you want to lose? Lin or lose take ur pick.

  • Chopz

    Oh great historian, tell us more.

  • Chopz

    So his back was Linjured? Clutch shots tend to do that to people.

  • Chopz

    Kemba burned the kings and Lin extinguished them.

  • Chopz

    Dear Mr. Clifford, I do not hate you or dislike you. I however, disapprove of your time management skills in regards to our favorite player and your outstanding employee Jeremy Lin. Thank you for giving him abundant playing time tonight, and please do so for the foreseeable future.
    Is that better Ms. Blubell? : )

    and some creepers in the back

  • spiderman

    lol

    Great game by Lin…Thank God he made up for the horrible first half.

    On the other hand, I’m a bit annoyed at Lin for missing a lay-up at the end of the game…Those are 2 free points that he can’t afford to leave on the table, specially when he’s a back-up…16points would had looked so much nicer than 14.

    In fact, he was coaching Denver in 2013, he said that after the game Rockets lost to Denver. Here is the link.

  • blubell

    Oops my bad. Karl said good things about Jeremy in that Spurs game… I got confused 🙂

  • real-dsb

    I posted my prediction before the game. Started watching and posting at start of 3rd quarter.

  • Phillycheese

    No, Daniels was given game off for personal reasons.
