G18 GSW @CHA Game Thread

The much awaited matchup vs the undefeated Golden State Warriors has arrived. Jeremy Lin reportedly was probably with right ankle sprain but will attempt to play

  1. How will the Hornets attempt to slow down Curry and GSW 3pt shooting?
  2. Who would be assigned to guard Curry and Draymond Green? Will JLin be asked to guard him?
  3. Would Clifford ask JLin to pick up the scoring load for the team?
  4. FT attempts & Scoring might be the best way for JLin to earn PT. He had 4-4FT in the MIL game and his PT increased to 22min and it could be 24min had he score more in the 4th quarter

Let’s hope JLin find a way to draw a lot of FT attempts to help him to get PT and chance to close out games. Let’s go, JLin! Relax, be your aggressive self & just play your game on matter what happens

  • CJSHYY

    Adidas really nice to Lin always has a lot Promotion for him.

  • Chopz

    I’m torn, root for the warriors to lose or not. Break the streak or Lin’s hornets lose. Maybe warriors continue streak and Lin plays well. Maybe Lin breaks the streak with a last second shot? Hey, one can dream can’t we?

  • yes, much better than Nike for sure

  • NONONO

    If Lin played under 15 mins, I could see GWS 125.

  • “Jeremy Lin improbable buzzer beater broke the longest winning record 19-0 by GSW who still proceeded to break Bulls 72-10 season record with its own 74-8 record on their way to their 2nd championship. But JLin’s shot jump-started a rebirth of his Linsanity performance that launched multiple teams in a bidding war in summer 2016”

    That’s the dream that I’d like to materialize =)

  • Gotta love Dirk who got a sense of humor after being put on a skate by McCollum last night

  • CJSHYY

    Indeed.

  • NONONO

    When could Cliff make his mind on his lineups? It has been 17 games, plus 8 preseason games. So far only two lineups played more than 10 mins a game . The best lineup (BS1) played less than 5 mins/game.

  • Chopz

    Now thats what u call a dream, i hope ur clairvoyant psalm.

  • blubell

    Who dares to crush your dream? 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t think Cliff will change the lineup. He wants Lin to be SG in starting lineup which I doubt Lin wants it…. Not going to happen…

  • Dorothy

    Really like Dirk, unlike Kobe…

  • real-dsb

    I posted last week what if Warriors get to 19-0 and Hornets beat them to prevent 20-0. But that would have required Lin at 100% and play big minutes and make a big impact.

    Even if Lin plays today, he won’t be at 100%, so Warriors will win today.

  • I hope so too. It reminds me of this quote:

    “A person is the product of their dreams. So make sure to dream great dreams. And then try to live your dream.” Maya Angelou

    What’s important is #NeverGiveUp

  • Dirk and Duncan aged gracefully.
    Kobe … not so much

  • Dorothy

    AND Hornets will not let Lin play big minutes to make a big impact even if Lin were 100%

  • JLin’s sore right ankle will certainly make it hard for JLin to chase Curry around.
    I’m hoping for a MJ flu game for JLin to produce 10 threes but I’ll settle for 12pts/3asts with a sore ankle.

    Only if Hornets can replicate the 130pts Bulls game, they have a chance

  • David Kim

    I don’t think Clifford wants Lin to be SG in starting line up. He wants batum to be SG and Mkg as sf next year.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Cliff said Lin will attempt to play, that sounded not very good. As much as I want to watch him play, I wished Lin to sit the next 5 games.

  • cdblue10

    No word yet if Lin will be playing tonight?

  • sws94

    He will attempt to play is the latest word.

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    Kemba and Batum are the once and future cornerstones. They do not want to share the scoring or play-making with another guard. If it makes us feel better, that’s also what keeps Lamb out of the starting lineup. If Kemba went down for a month or two, Lin would get to start. But even if Linsanity exploded again, as soon as Kemba is healthy, he would return as starter and Lin would go back to the bench. Charlotte will not become Lin’s home.

  • cdblue10

    I hope this is the game where Clifford used LIn properly if he’ll play because this could be a turnaround of his season if they win and he played well

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When did he say he wants Lin to be starting SG? I don’t remember to hear any of that.

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    I totally agree with you. Lin should not risk aggravating his injury and should not play until he’s fully healed. Let’s see if the Hornets can win without BF1

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Only when the Hornet starters are in double digit behind.

  • sws94

    Dirk still ended up scoring 28 points on decent shooting percentage plus his team won. Unlike Kobe who hurts his team just jacking up shots and bricking most of them. So, he could look bad defensively and laugh, but at least he can still contribute in the way he’s known for. Go Dirk.

  • cdblue10

    I hope it’s not Cleveland all over again.These are the 2 pivotal games of the season

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes, it’s the most pain to chase Curry around when his ankle not 100%

  • CJSHYY

    I don’t think Lin wants to stay w Hornets either. Last year, Mo played well but after Kemba back, Cliff played Mo just like bench again.

  • sws94

    Even Garnett is. He runs his mouth but when he’s on the court he doesn’t try to do too much and he plays much smaller minutes. He only plays like 21 minutes or so a game.

  • sws94

    I don’t really care about GSW’s streak and I want Lin’s team to win. GSW are a dominant team and may win another championship, Lin’s team is trying to be a contender. They need every win they can get and they make a huge statement to themselves by simply winning against the best team in the league, streak or no streak.

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    Yep, there is no evidence that Lin will be treated better than Mo was.

  • CJSHYY
  • cdblue10

    Lin has no place on this Hornets team because they’re loaded to get a max player next year,they have money to do that.

  • true, Garnett has been a good mentor as he aged

  • sws94

    Can I just ask why are you thinking of next year when there is so much more season to be played this year? And really, Lin has his own priorities. He didn’t sign where we thought he would. Nobody at all predicted he’d sign with Charlotte. So we are pretty clueless to exactly what Lin will do when the time comes. But that time is far away and there are a lot of games to be played with the Hornets.

    He has no place is funny to read because on the Charlotte forums, they like Lin for the backup role and think he’s the best they’ve had and want to lock him up. Maybe it doesn’t fit our scenario of Lin getting a bigger role, but he has a definite place on the team according to longtime Charlotte fans. The big money may be spent on another position.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Absolutely not. Unlike Lin, Mo was among the first in substitution. He averaged 29 mpg and he had a lot of 30+mpg.

  • sws94

    As someone said, it is best to put energy into what Lin can control. So, regarding Clifford, he’s making moves for his team and sometimes that means we won’t like them. I can only hope Lin’s jumper is working. If his ankle affects his play, he’ll need to have his jumper working. If it works and he’s scoring, it’s a better chance he’ll play a good amount. But he may just go 15 minutes anyway for Clifford to avoid using Roberts. That may be all he can do in tonight’s game. It depends on how he feels.

  • sws94

    Who is this guy? He seems to like Lin.

  • blubell

    Head of PR for Hornets.

  • cdblue10

    As a Lin fan,I’m not happy with his role right now as a player,I know he can help the Hornets better if they can mange his time better(25-28mins/game)with a specific role.As an observer of the game,I can’t see any evidence that they want him to resign next year,kudos to Hornets fans if they like him because they know how important he is on the rotation,but do they treat him as a major contributor on the team?of course not.

  • CJSHYY

    Marketing.

  • cdblue10

    He’s the PR manager or marketing manager of the team

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    Lin can keep this role and this salary for as long as he wants. In fact just about every team would love to have Lin under such conditions. But Lin has loftier goals and ambitions. How do I know? I’ve been paying attention to Lin’s saga for more than 5 seasons now.

  • blubell

    Here is his exact job description from NBA.com
    Pete Guelli is in his seventh season as the organization’s Executive Vice President and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer.

  • golfhacker

    That’s still better defense that Har_en! And in all fairness, that’s a guard he is guarding too.

  • sws94

    I’m happy with it only if it is expanded. I know he’s new to the team and it’ll take time to integrate him. If Clifford is true to his word, which I’m not sure he is, Lin should have a nice role here where he can have some big games. I also think it is dependent on Kemba to work Lin in more, not just Lin and it is Clifford’s job to help Kemba integrate Lin more. I don’t think Charlotte is thinking of considering resigning Lin yet as they are still evaluating him and I’m not sure what they think of him so far in terms of meeting expectations or not. Lin will not have the role we want, but will it be a decent compromise? That’s all practically we will see on most teams, not just the Hornets.

  • sws94

    Excellent.

  • jolno

    “I mean 40 [minutes] a night is pretty tough especially if you want to
    be efficient on both ends of the floor,” said Harden, who led the NBA in
    minutes last season and currently leads this year with 39.6 minutes per
    game. “We got to figure out how to get guys more minutes and be more
    effective in the court so we can get better.”

    Hmm, it’s a big surprise that Harden even knows they are two ends of the floor. And this wanting to be efficient on both ends of the floor really confuses me LOL. What does he mean by being efficient on the defensive side of the floor? Does he mean playing passable “defense” while minimizing how much he has to move at the defensive end? I guess Harden can become a comedian after he retires.

  • jakey

    Dirk took a pay cut to bring in more players, didn’t he? Classy

  • blubell

    He’s very polite to JLin fans on twitter and tries his best to answer all of the tweets.

  • blubell

    Yes he did, just like Duncan for a better chance at championship. Kobe received a pay raise to bring down the organization…

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Bc he’s in marketing that’s big different from these blog writers… $$$ vs Mad at Lin’s fans…LOL!

  • sws94

    Shootaround vids are coming up, waiting for Cliff’s and what he says on Lin. Marvin really does great interviews. He’s smart and savvy, well spoken and has a great understanding of the game. I enjoy his interviews. I hope he and Lin can play a lot together. Kemba said he’s just going to try to play his game and not do too much, and he needs help guarding Curry.

  • blubell

    Yes, it’s his job to be professional for sure 🙂

  • cdblue10

    If the coach really want to integrate him as major contributor,he would start it now if they have the desire to keep him next year.I have no problem if Lin will be coming off the bench, but if he’s playing well,Clifford needs to recognized that and need to play him more(that’s a norm anyway for most of the coaches in the NBA).If they give him 25-28 mins/game and closes the 4th quarter of the time,then I have no doubt that Lin will resign on this team next year.As of Kemba,coach just need to tell him to move the ball and find a better and quality shot.

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    Let me make it real simple for you. If Kemba “wants to find a way to integrate Lin more” he just has to do one simple thing. It’s called pass the ball to Lin. Lin is a PG. He will figure out what to do next. In fact he will often pass it back. No need to make BB into brain surgery or rocket science.

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! Ya! Just pass the ball to Lin… but Kemba will not do it unless gets the order that he has to…. (that OT vs King) LOL! Let’s see what will happen tonight.

  • blubell

    It is interesting how MW and Jared Jeffries are so alike off court.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kemba needs help to guard anybody.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lol, 25-28 min used to be game that we questioned. What a new low this franchise has placed on Lin.

  • CJSHYY

    Who will be the one helps Kemba to guard Curry? Lin?

  • cdblue10

    The core of this team if they really want to compete are Lin,MW and Batum.Kemba is just small SG that handles the ball and if he’s contain and shots are not falling,Hornets is in trouble,while the other three ,they can always find other ways to impact the game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin can’t stop Curry but he gave Curry hard time last 2 meetings while Kemba got destroyed.

  • sws94

    If I were Cliff my best 3 point shooters have the most minutes. Period. Lamb has to play big minutes in this game. Kemba and Batum always do and they have to hit 3 point shots. Then they have to hope that Marvin hits some, Frank, and Lin can hit some. The best defensive guys are going to have their trouble in that system due to how quick the 3 pointers get their shots off and how they swing it until they can get one open through screens. Then they also bring the ball inside too and can score inside. If fast breaks present themselves go for them because GSW has great team defense and they are long. The Hornets bench may be able to counter GSWs. Maybe the Hornets bench scores a bit more or at least keeps up with them. But these starters keeping up with them and the part starter part bench lineups. I don’t think so.

    If Lin doesn’t play many minutes it can be for 2 reasons. One, his ankle. But two, his 3 point shot not working and the Hornets needing 3 point shooters on the floor. If Lamb plays 32 or 33 minutes, that’s why. Even if his shot is just so-so, he’s probably the team’s best 3 point shooter besides Daniels who hardly every plays. As for Lin’s D, the way GSW plays, if he’s knocked off on picks, they don’t need much time to get up 3s and when they are hot from 3s, no defense is stopping them.

  • sws94

    Kemba is definitely part of the core. And I looked at some highlights, Kemba is definitely getting assists. I looked at Lin/Batum/Kemba highlights and Kemba, like Lin, is a combo guard. He doesn’t look to pass as much as Lin, but he’s passing pretty well this season and getting assists.

  • sws94

    The team, whoever is around. If he gets by Kemba others try to block his passing lanes and such. It’s hard, Curry can handle and pass. Curry is a huge challenge. Just hope he isn’t red hot shooting tonight. He wasn’t for the Jazz game.

  • sws94

    Yes. It’s good.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This is why they lost to Cleveland and could have been more had Cliff decided to insert Lamb to replace Lin to close games.

    The best 3 pt shooters are allowed to shoot more but the best defenders are allow to play the most minutes, that’s what a smart coach without politic would do.

  • sws94

    Kemba has to change his mental approach. It’s not just passing. It’s allowing other players to do what he’s used to doing. That won’t happen overnight. He’s had years of playing the way he’s used to.

  • wandertheglobe

    I agree about Wolves and Knicks announcers are great. Of course, the 3 stooges of the Rox at the bottom of the list. For Lin fans, we would add, ATL’s Dominque Wilkins and CHI’s Stacey King.

    Nobody asked but here are my top and bottom local league pass broadcast crews. pic.twitter.com/Q29cOtIl0P— Haralabos Voulgaris (@haralabob) December 2, 2015

  • sws94

    I think he is. Lin is on the floor with Kemba more than he used to be. But Kemba has to change his game more to work Lin in. I think Lin can come to the ball more but he’s supposed to be one of the 4 out so the corner 3 is available. I don’t really know all of the plays, but in the system, all the players have to be on the same page or else guys end up passing the ball to where they think a team mate should be rather than where he moves to. That’s why Batum sometimes gets TOs (when he isn’t poorly executing the pass).

  • blubell

    Laker’s Stu Lance needs to be added to the bottom as well.

  • cdblue10

    That’s my point he looks to shoot first most of the time than passing,with his height that’s going to be his disadvantage when the game will become tighter.Although if he involve his team they can be more dangerous.As of now,Kemba is effective because of these 3 players,without them he’s just an ordinary SG/PG.

  • sws94

    Add Atlanta.

  • sws94

    He does pass though. I don’t have the links to the video right now but if you watched them, you see Kemba making good passes and getting assists. He’s improving in that regard. He used to be far more shoot the ball and not get assists. He’s moving in the right direction.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When you play twice the minutes more than corner standing bench with 100% control on the offense but only has 2 more assist than him, you’re not doing it right as a PG.

  • sws94

    What do you like about Kemba’s game? What does he do well?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Dribbling and fast.

  • cdblue10

    I’ve seen some of his passes but most of the time he just shoots,with his height he’s a liability when games become more defense oriented.

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    Of course Kemba and Batum both pass sometimes. They just don’t pass to Lin very often no matter how open he is or how long he’s been frozen out.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They do pass to each other more.

    The San Bernardino Fire Department is responding to reports of a “20 victim shooting incident,” the department said on Twitter.

    The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department tweeted that there was an “active shooter in the area of Orange Show Rd/Waterman Ave near Park center.” It urged people to avoid the area.

  • sws94

    I think Kemba is playing good basketball now. Many of the league’s PGs shoot alot. That includes guys like Westbrook, Lillard, K Irving, etc. The Rondo and Nash types aren’t as many as they used to. Lin is somewhere inbetween the Rondo types and the Irving type. Kemba has made huge shots and plays for the Hornets. In fact, when the first unit is faltering, then Kemba starts shooting much and almost, why shouldn’t he? He’s shown to be the one to at least help lower the deficit in a lot of games before Lin gets in and then the bench erases it and sometimes gets a lead. I can’t fault Kemba much right now. Compared to how he used to play, he has massive improvement for his style of play.

    But mostly, Kemba is playing with supreme confidence. A coach, team mates and fans secure feel watching someone playing with confidence. I don’t think he’s over-confident. His confidence level seems healthy now.

    Wow. That’s about 25-30 minutes from where I live…

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    I watched the Sixers game with a friend from China who knows very little about basketball. I chose that game because Lin was starting and I thought Lin was likelier to score a lot against a weak team. My Chinese friend said she really admires Lin for being so brave. “He’s playing in an environment where he’s an outsider. And those 3 black guys are so fast! They pass the ball among themselves and just ignore Lin.” I told her that Lin is really fast too and really good. But on this team he’s ignored sometimes. Interesting how an unbiased viewer sees the game.

  • cdblue10

    I would give him that…he’s really playing well but give it to Batum,Lin and MW because they are the major reasons why he’s playing well this season w/o them,Kemba would just be a Kemba like last year

  • cdblue10

    Stay home

  • blubell

    You’re really amazing. Your comments:

    Second: I think Kemba is playing good basketball now. Many of the league’s PGs shoot alot. That includes guys like Westbrook, Lillard, K Irving, etc.

    I’ve shown her Linsanity highlights in the past and she knows I’m a big Lin fan but that was a long time ago. Watching a live game this season, she kinda felt bad for him. Of course the obvious difference is Lin standing in the corner or on the 3 pt line not touching the ball vs. Lin running the offense.

  • sws94

    I agree with that. Kemba is definitely helped by Batum and Lin. No doubt. And MW provides a mature presence, hustle, grit and basketball intellect that helps unite the team. Plus I love how he pumps his team mates up, especially Lin.

    Lin’s role is big, I still put Kemba as one of the core but if you don’t, we at least know each other’s position. Good discussion.

  • sws94

    Sounding like a possible Boston Marathon scenario. This is sick. Really sick news.

  • Rick Johnson
  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Does anyone knows what was Lin’s PER for last game…I mean, in the single game?

    I’ve noticed his PER is sliding sharply, so I’d like to get a picture of what type of game ans statistic he needs to see it rise.

    At this point, I think it would be more realistic for us Lin fan to simply root for better efficiency from Lin which means low level of turnover and making his shots, even if it’s 4 shot per game….His FG% and 3point% have cringed up a bit which is decent news.

    At this point, I’m hoping he can get back to shooting 43%FG and 34% 3point, by all star break…I doubt we should expect 20point games..those will be very few with his current minutes.

  • Dorothy

    be safe

  • LinMad

    I don’t see Lin’s jersey

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Look like tickets are about to be sold out, 91 left.

  • NONONO

    I am more and more convinced that Lin would join GSW if Cliff continues to diminish his role (or minutes) for whatever reasons.

    Lin would fit GWS .

    Besides the following 5 reasons,

    http://2paragraphs.com/2015/05/5-reasons-jeremy-lin-works-for-golden-state-warriors/

    6. i did not see him would play less role (or minutes) in any other team

    7. He likes to have fun and food. How much he found it in Cha?

    8. If he enjoys playing bball more than big pay or star status. He is one of the most unselfish player (Tim Duncan, Dirk too ). Any team and any player would welcome him.

    9. Joining GWS means more games to play (playoffs, championships games)

    10. you name it,,,,

    His Jersey is left standing in the corner

  • DX

    I don’t think GWS want to do any change now. Maybe next season or they start losing.

  • webattorney

    GSW is set for now with Shaun and Barbosa in Guards positions. Why tinker with a winning roster?

  • If Lin plays well in this game, there will be more demand for Lin to join them next season

  • orLinaryjoe

    Things move and change. Come back home Lin!

  • DX

    But I would rather Lin be a starter in 76ers than bench in GSW. At least, I can watch more minutes.

  • LinMad

    where?

  • webattorney

    If they ever come to Irvine, CA, I am ready with my weapon.

  • wu kong

    joke.

    Cliff: “Actually NOT good to see you!”

  • NONONO

    Here is how I compare Livingston (team option next year) and Lin (player option)

    Offensive Rating -3 vs 7.6. Salary 5.8M vs 2.1M. And you know how good Lin is this year.

    https://twitter.com/HornetsPR/status/672178423976976384

  • it’s definitely better for JLin to be a starter to achieve his All-Star goal.

    Maybe not 76ers since the losing mentality has spread out like a virus.
    I just read Embiid being selfish not rehabbing requiring 2nd surger & eating right & now Okafor in fights will be hard to overcome. Maybe if MDA becomes the coach & there are some feared veterans

  • wu kong

    FYI: anyone else in the area of the San Bernardino shooting here are some live police scanners you can listen too: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/ctid/218

  • sws94

    That team is horrible. It’s not good for Lin to go on a team like that. It’s like Lin is only good enough to start on a bad team. He’s better off being a sometimes starter on a good team. A losing team is not good.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Tape it well Jeremy.

  • sws94

    Good. He just has to be careful not to make it any worse.

  • wu kong

    the suspects are loose so anyone in the area stay safe. praying for you all.

  • LinMad

    it seem like the suspects were targeting government agencies.

  • David Kim

    so 4 guards and 1 forward today?

  • blubell

    Thank you wu kong for all the updates!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    A good assistant coach would tell Cliff not to wait until down by double digit before sending in Lin.

  • NONONO

    Match and possible “swap” next season?

    Livingston vs Lin => Offensive Rating -3 vs 7.6. Salary 5.8M vs 2.1M. (Livingston, team option next season)

  • sws94

    When GSW goes very small. If they do.

  • LinMad

    maybe Lin won’t get his minutes today

  • wu kong

    are you able to get news where you are??

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Whatever they did, they’ve accomplished. They should be in hiding right now until their next evil act plan. This was a well plan not a suicide mission. JMO.

  • DX

    How about, A good coach would not to wait until down by double digit before sending in Lin.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s tight up with too much politic.

  • Rick Johnson

    Livingston is pretty tall, long, he could slide over to SG and Lin at PG. In fact he played SG for the Clippers.

  • sws94

    No Ewing at tonight’s game. Had surgery on his knee. Don’t know if that makes any difference or not.

  • Mr Chuckles

    But do you have body-armor?

  • Jeremiah (the Grey)

    Lin admitted a long time ago that he’s not so impressive as a 1-on-1 player. He excels as a PG playing in a 5-on-5 setting. This is the 4th year in a row since Linsanity that we’ve started the season with high expectations only to have our hopes crushed before game 20. This season was supposed to be different. Lin was promised he would be playing a lot of PnRs as PG or alongside Kemba and it’s just not happening. Every year the usual suspects emerge to explain why Lin is struggling: 1) He’s not a good shooter. 2) His handles are shaky 3) He makes bad decisions 4) He defers too much. 5) He rather pass than shoot etc.

    The troubling part is I sense that even his most loyal fans are starting to waver. I’m convinced that Lin has been constantly improving his skills and when he finally gets the chance to play PG with suitable bigs, all the criticism will evaporate. I don’t know when it will happen and I guess we can’t be sure it will ever happen. The things that keep me hopeful: Lin gets another go at FA this summer with cap space going way up; Hornets will need Lin to win against quality teams especially in the playoffs, trades may occur between Dec and Feb; and finally the taboo subject of injuries. As long as Lin doesn’t give up hope, we shouldn’t either.

  • wu kong

    yes. this was not simply a mad man

  • blubell

    Yes, but I can’t listen to the police scanners at work. I can google it and what you’ve already provided is sufficient.

  • Joe what do you know

    Aren’t they both quite old? Perhaps they’ll decide to hang it up next year. Could be a possibility

  • Rick Johnson
  • Joe what do you know

    Bahahaha!!

  • wu kong

    ok good.

  • wu kong

    you need body armor too

  • wu kong

    3 shooters with body armor and assault weapons sounds like more than a simple mad man

  • the funny thing is they’re advertising “Heating & Cooling Inc”

  • blubell

    …. lol.

  • wu kong

    how in the world did you manage to see that??!? I am impressed you saw anything else in the shot

  • I’m trained to bounce my eyes ..
    I pity our own JLin who has to focus to memorize Heating & Cooling phone #s around the HoneyBees LOL

  • They should send HoneyBees in front of GSW locker-room.

    Welcome them cheerfully right before game time =)

  • orLinaryjoe

    It is hot in here. Nice shirts!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Sure your eyes bounced…

  • JoeTeam

    My fav Warrior gal has moved on, I’m ready to change dance teams ha ha.

  • JoeTeam

    For the record, I did not see that.

  • David Kim

    Really good shooter !!!!

  • Spot

    His 3 is not there yet, he needs to quit working with Doc!!

    Oops, not Jeremy, sorry…. 🙂

  • DX

    Yes, he is great player but not superman.

  • Spot

    Steph got a wife AND a daughter!!!

  • CJSHYY

    The problem is — he made lots of them during the game.

  • David Kim

    Who is curry’s shooting coach?

  • Steph is a good husband and dad with strong faith so it shouldn’t affect him.
    jk 🙂

  • Spot

    I know. Me too 🙂

    Anyway, Draymond Green …. 😀

  • wu kong

    he’s a man. that will challenge even the best men to ‘bounce’ their eyes …

  • kjch

    I have to say.. I think omri’s sister beats them all lol

  • Spot

    Too much make up anyway

  • Clifford talked about Lin who’s a little sore in the morning but he feels good & hopefully can play his regular min

    Teams need to be able to score against GSW & can’t turn them over.

    https://twitter.com/hornets/status/672194219285565440

  • sws94

    He’s going to try to go, was a little sore this morning. Hopefully he can play his regular minutes. Cliff on LIn.

    http://www.nba.com/hornets/video/2015/12/02/1449096473904-151202-Coach_Pregame.mov-149033/

  • Spot

    Yep. That scares me 🙂

    The one on the right is a fake blond too. Apart that, they’re OK 🙂

  • blubell

    Bounced and bounced back?

  • Spot

    He had to sit and play healthy the next game.

  • Spot

    OMG!!!! :O

  • man, you have good eyes!

  • sws94

    He wouldn’t play if he wasn’t able to. This game is big. They need him. Players play a little injured all of the time.

  • that’s the problem with ‘bouncing’ .. it’s still all-over the place

    anyway, being single it’ll be harder on JLin than Curry for sure.
    Hopefully HoneyBees go easy on JLin lol

  • Spot

    No worries. As long as mama Lin stays in the zone…:)

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Disagree.

  • sws94

    He takes a step and shoot in practice. Not just catch and shoot.

  • blubell

    They better keep their distance! 😛

  • wow, it’s so good that it’s scary what’s not real

  • kjch

    Or bluebell goes nuclear countdown~~~~~

  • Sting like a bee, dance like a butterfly? lol

  • Spot

    Even the girl on the right had taken note, look at the pen on the shorts LOL!

  • NONONO

    I am tired to hear what he has said. “i hope lin can play regular mins?” what is lin’s regular mins?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Well done! Bravo!

  • Spot

    I don’t care anymore what Cliff says.

  • james brown

    15 minutes..so he will play less today because he wants him to be healthy for the next games..LOL!

  • NONONO

    i hope he sits out if he is not 100% feel good about his ankle.

  • james brown

    like the gal in the right side..LOL!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Police spray bullets on black SUV, hope this is the end of these madness.

  • sws94

    18-28 depending on how the game goes.

  • wu kong

    1 in custody 1 down swat approaching SUV with a bomb shield device looking for 3rd guy I guess

  • NONONO

    i think is between 9 and 28

  • CJSHYY

    If so Lin should not play… he will get less than 15 today…smh!

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t think so now… around 15 or less….

  • wu kong

    good live video : http://www.cbsnews.com/

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    1 more just matter of when.

  • sws94

    Okafur suspended 2 games. Won’t play tonight and the next game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Don’t know how you can chose.

  • sws94

    The game hasn’t started, I’m not minutes guessing. Sorry. It’s tiring. We don’t even know what he’ll look like. Anything can happen. He can come out and hit 2 3s and then go 5-8 from 3 and play a lot. Who knows?

    I wish we’d be more positive that Lin can break out of a shooting slump and have a big game. Some players have played really well when sick or injured.

  • CJSHYY

    I wish. You should send the tweet to tell Lin about this…

  • Steppen03

    Hellooo fellow JL7 fans =)
    First, God speed to those involved in the San Bernardino tragedy. Prayers need to send out…

    Am I the only JL7 fan that don’t want the Hornets to take this one ?? This is No big deal… Just one game in, what, more than 60 games left… GS is my fav team and I’ll say they’ll take this game at 15+ points. I’m not confident on how Cliff is using the players and esp. JL7. Go, Warriors!!
    But yeah, always hope JL7 to have a 18+ pt in 22+ min night.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    You must be flagged for the next 3 hrs. 🙂

  • yes, perhaps JLin can unite 2 nations someday lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Home or away broadcast?

  • Del Curry of course ..

    It’ll be fun listening how he comments on Steph

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Thanks.

  • Steppen03

    God protect us, now from all these madness in the world. You just don’t know where is safe anymore…

  • Clifford said the key to contain Curry is to draw different scheme & looks because he’s so good.

    Spent 2 days working on them

  • Chopz

    Well this most loyal fan will never waver. His true fans know what he can do, sky’s the limit. If it is destiny that he shines then so be it. But if not because of whatever circumstances, we will always still love him and be his fans no matter what. Nobody shakes him and nobody shakes me, got ur back jeremy.

  • Del Curry: “I’d love to play for Coach Clfford because if you can score, he will draw a play for you”

    So score a bunch, JLin!
    Let’s see all those drawings

  • Chopz

    I think he put away the drawing board and hid the pens when jeremy is nearby.

  • It’s a “Del Curry” night
    Del thanked the Hornets to celebrate while his son is visiting.

    And JLin drained a practice 3 in the back

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Lin could play a bit more tonight if GSW blows out the game…That would depend on his ankle..Let’s hope Clifford will let him play garbage time.

  • Steppen03

    Dell must be talking about the “stars” on the team, not JL7. For Cliff – I don’t see enough of actions matching his words. We will see … for 60+ games left.

  • real-dsb

    My preference of outcomes:

    1. Lin is a key contributor to the Hornets being the first team to defeat the Warriors this season.

    2. If Lin is unable to play his usual self due to his ankle or lack of PT, then I would root for Warriors to extend their winning streak.

  • CJSHYY

    Garbage time? LOL!

  • sws94

    He draws them for Lin on give and goes. Al to Lin, Batum to Lin. I’ve seen quite a bit of those. On other plays, Lin facilitates them. When Lin’s jump shot returns he’ll draw more for Lin on CnS with Kemba and Lin doing it for Kemba but LIn’s shot has to improve.

  • there were a few plays drawn for JLin (Hawes to Lin, Lin cut to the rim off Batum), mostly driving to the rim

    But we need mooooore 😀

  • Steph Curry turned the table and interviewed Del on his night =)
    Del: “… need to contain this guy! Don’t spoil my night”

    Great father-son moment =)

  • sws94

    I don’t agree with this. Regardless of how Lin plays, the Hornets are his team and he hates losing. He’s a team guy first so I want what he wants. I think he’d love to contribute and have great stats but if they can get a win and he has a subpar game, that’s better than his scoring a lot and they don’t win. Winning is top priority.

  • CJSHYY
  • sws94

    That would be inexcusable for Clifford to play a key player with an injury in garbage time. If it is a blowout, play the 3rd stringers and rest the key rotational starting and bench unit guys.

  • occupatio

    me, i want to be entertained. team win isnt enuf.

  • Lin definitely will root for Hornets to win.

    But we know if he’s not playing, we’ll get a lot of CLE late-game situation with stagnated offense so there’s naturally less chance for Hornets to win.

    Hornets need JLin to play big to win. Also, the rest of Hornets better bring their A game

  • NONONO

    Lin beat GSW with Knicks, Rockets and even tanking Lakers – only reason is he played at least 25 mins in each game and played PG role a lot.

  • real-dsb

    I listened to pregame reports, some mentioned Kemba being the key. But if Lin doesn’t play much with Kemba, Kemba will not succeed.

  • LinMad

    Marvin with the new haircut

  • Hornets came to play 9-7 with super-quick game pace

  • LinMad

    does Warriors have a stronger bench than Hornets?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Go Lin, go Hornets! Go GSW! Go Curry! Yes I’m a fan.

  • CJSHYY

    Kemba will wait for Lin to show up for score….

  • LinMad

    Batum with the kobe like contest shot from 3 and brick

  • Hornets strategy is to double Curry to give up the ball.
    So far, other GSW teamamates have scored well

    It might have a chance to work if they slow down later

  • LinMad

    Lin didn’t want to sell his yet?

  • real-dsb

    if Klay is hot, Hornets are doomed

  • cdblue10

    PJ has been killed and no adjustment was done

  • Steppen03

    It’s all about the coach and what he empowers. We don’t see the so-called “clueless” Lin under MDA. Lin have to do what the coach ask of him as to how to fit in with the team – 1st unit and 2nd unit. Behind the scene situations can affect a lot of Lin’s plays. JL7 just have to do his best – of what coach wanted. It’s not easy task when you’re also trying to be the best player that you can be.

  • LinMad

    Batum needs to pass more. He’s 2-5 already

  • NONONO

    NO MATCH. You cannot beat GSW with offense.

  • real-dsb

    yup, Klay is hot. Hornets doomed.

  • Alain Gervais

    Klay already with 13

  • Hornets can’t outshoot 3s with GSW

    They need Lin on the floor to give space for Kemba/Batum/Lin/Marvin to shoot 3s

  • LinMad

    who was on Klay?

  • CJSHYY

    For his dad, Curry don’t take that many shots… it’s all Klay now.

  • cdblue10

    PJ

  • cdblue10

    I’m glad he called a timeout

  • real-dsb

    warriors covered the 9 pt spread already LOL

  • LinMad

    PJ is deadweight

  • Klay slays PJ

  • cdblue10

    Pretty much

  • LinMad

    So coach thinks Lamb is a better defender than Lin…

  • jolno

    PJ is in such a bad spot because he needs to guard the better offensive player so that Batum can spend all his energy on the offensive end. Both Batum and Walker don’t really play hard defense so that they have the legs for their jumper heavy offensive games.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lamb want guarding Klay

  • cdblue10

    Of course he needs to put his fave son first

  • LinMad

    Maybe Lin is still recovering from injury so coach will not give him much minutes today

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin comes in Last regardless

  • LinMad

    Curry is dancing on the hornets

  • cdblue10

    lol

  • CJSHYY

    Always like that… no need to upset…

  • NONONO

    Curry is dancing and shoot…

  • DX

    Hornets want to compete pop 3 with GSW. It’s totally not right.

  • LinMad

    This team looks d league lol

  • cdblue10

    This is what I’m saying,Kemba is too short,when good defense was applied he’s ineffective

  • LinMad

    why are we trading 3s with GSW? Play better D and go for 2s

  • Dorothy

    Good job, Hornets LOL

  • DX

    Did Cliff watch GSW’s videos before the game?

  • LinMad

    apparently not cause we need better perimeter protection

  • NONONO

    Give Lin a rest. I would just enjoy Curry’s game.

  • 1mtoldman

    so..hotter and colder?

  • Lin Win

    hahah 61%FG I love our starter’s defense
    Walker looking hot with 0-3

  • 1mtoldman

    something was probably bouncing

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yes, and it still looks the same in real time.

  • wandertheglobe

    Watching the Warriors is like playing video game. So easy…

  • DX

    Exactly, Lakers did win GSW last year, just go over what they did.

  • NONONO

    Clifford said in an interview with the Charlotte Observer that Lin and Walker will play a lot of minutes together. When asked if it will be an effective combination, Clifford compared the Lin-Walker duo to Golden State Warriors backcourt partners Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

  • CJSHYY

    When did he say that? Preseason?

  • LinMad

    Batum doesn’t move off the ball. He just passes it, stands there asking for the ball back from Lamb.

  • LinMad

    when Lin played in China lol

  • DX

    Great! Lin is after Hawes. The 5th on the bench!

  • JJ Hui

    Why no MW? Hope he play with Lin!

  • NONONO

    i know. he already forgot what he said.

  • 1mtoldman

    klays scored more baskets than the entire horents starting lineup (at 8 minute mark)

  • Alain Gervais

    I think he said Jeremy

  • cdblue10

    Clifford needs to wait for Walker to score before Lin could come in

  • LinMad

    [L]ast
    [I]n, First Out
    [N]on-Closer

  • 1mtoldman

    pretty much standard the last 3 games; lin’s become the 9th man.

  • cdblue10

    lol

  • CJSHYY

    Normally if Walker didn’t shoot well when Lin came in he did score.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin coming

  • Lin Win

    Hornets #1 in TOs
    Stingy
    Yeah tell that to Batum LOL!

  • CJSHYY

    As usual.

  • cdblue10

    Why is it Batum?lol

  • LinMad

    Clifford killing the buzz from Lin

  • LinMad

    well at least Lin got a lot of cheers

  • DX

    Finally, 1:40. Cliff really count the time.

  • CJSHYY

    Damn it Kemba w Lin.. smh!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Watch out for LINcoming!

  • wandertheglobe

    LOL Lamb

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ast1!

  • LinMad

    THERE WE GO!

  • real-dsb

    1q130 livingston burned lamb for the alley oop

  • cdblue10

    Lin is already making his presence felt

  • LinMad

    Lin making things happen

  • orLinaryjoe

    1 pt, 1 ast in 50 secs. Efficient, lol.

  • cdblue10

    Put Hansbrough in

  • real-dsb

    no boxout of Ezeli for the putback slam

  • Lin Win

    Come on Lin make those FTs ffs

  • Lin Win

    Hawes is like Oh it’s my job?

  • LinMad

    relax its just a free throw

  • real-dsb

    don’t even attempt a heave to end the quarter?

  • Lin Win

    FTs = easiest points in the game for a guard

  • DX

    Who is protect the rebound?

  • LinMad

    ya but it’s like every time he misses some Lin fans ride him for it. He’s a 82.8% FT shooter this season. Best in his career

  • Alain Gervais

    Nobody is 100 percent

  • NONONO

    12 mins. 9-2 assists.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    should Kemba be resting…I mean…let JLin have the freedom to play

  • Rick Johnson

    How did Lin get free throws? Wasn’t shooting foul. GSW already in penalty?

  • cdblue10

    As long as Kemba is controlling the ball,no crumbs for him

  • wandertheglobe

    In penalty

  • cdblue10

    loose ball foul

  • 1mtoldman

    kemba 40 minutes man

  • LinMad

    ya I think we need to be as supportive of Lin as possible with his limited opportunity this season.

  • sws94

    Kemba still not looking for his teammates enough. He has to find Lin more.

  • cdblue10

    Clifford is no difference to other coaches

  • Lin Win

    Lin has more points and assist than Walker in 1 min of playing time.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    don’t understand the coach…if the starters are so bad, what makes him think that kemba can run with the bench…

  • jolno

    Kemba really spends a lot of energy chasing Curry on the defensive end and all of a sudden his shots are no longer dropping. Going 0 for 5 so far. It’s hard to shoot well while playing all out defense.

  • LinMad

    ya plays favorites not based on stats

  • NONONO

    Kemba played 12mins PG , no assist , no point? Lin one min. 1 pt and 1 assist.

  • cdblue10

    If Lamb is your primary option on the 2nd unit,then it’s game over

  • John Focker

    I’m not complaining…

  • real-dsb

    livingston guarding lin

  • CJSHYY

    Both PG.

  • real-dsb

    2q10 cmon Hawes. uncontested 3

  • Alain Gervais

    Lamb telegraph that pass

  • LinMad

    Lamb shouldn’t have passed that

  • Rick Johnson

    Crappy Lamb pass cost Lin a foul

  • Lin Win

    OH my god Hawes should stick to the post. I rather have Lin shoot a contested 3 than Hawes shoot an open one

  • cdblue10

    Lin is out

  • LinMad

    ok Lin is sitting now

  • DX

    Why keep doing these low IQ TOs.

  • real-dsb

    mo speights was moving to the left when Lin drove on him. Bad call. Even the Warriors announcers admitted it was a “favorable call”

  • cdblue10

    hahaha,hawes and kaminsky

  • Alain Gervais

    We lost 4 rebounds in a row

  • cdblue10

    yep

  • Rick Johnson

    Get Hansbrough in to get rebounds!!

  • cdblue10

    yep,exactly

  • wandertheglobe

    Hornets announcer Ready says Mo had his feet set and thought Lin should have moved around him.

  • real-dsb

    Lin destroyed Livingston on the crossover. That was not a charge against Speights (who was moving to the left). Should have been a foul on Speights.

  • zxcvb

    Just like we predicted. Lin’s teammates are selfish idiots. Lin gets phantom foul trouble (first one was Lamb’s awful pass).

  • Alain Gervais

    Game over. hornets just not good enough

  • LinMad

    ya that ref called it late too, it’s like he was thinking for awhile

  • Alain Gervais

    That was a charge

  • zxcvb

    Keep telling yourself that. Even GSW announcers knew it wasn’t.

  • cdblue10

    Clifford doesn’t know how to adjust in in game situations,too stingy

  • sws94

    Not a charge. Lin has not help out there. No picks. And now he has two fouls and Cliff may pull him.

  • Alain Gervais

    Its debatable. I really hate the lack of movement by the hornets

  • real-dsb

    Lin did. Mo Speights was initially moving towards his right to cut off Lin, so Lin changed direction to drove to Speights left, then Speight leaned left, that’s how Lin crashed into him. Just because your feet aren’t moving doesn’t mean you are set!

  • sws94

    Defender was moving left.

  • real-dsb

    I’m a fan of Ready, but she was wrong in this case.

  • Lin Win

    No! Shoulder to the middle of the body is charge

  • zxcvb

    It was clear Mo was sliding.

  • LinMad

    Cliff is actually leaving Lin in. Which means, he read the hate comments.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That lady keeps praising Kemba 0-5 while putting down Lin for one bad play.

  • jlim7

    Clifford or FO is really only playing their favourites or playing politics. Hawes is the recipe for rebound failure, but yet he is still preferred more than Hansbrough.

  • real-dsb

    more like Clifford *didn’t* read the hate comments.

  • LinMad

    LOL Lin got drop kicked

  • zxcvb

    Lin always gets HAMMERED flagrant style.

  • CJSHYY

    Maybe Lin will not close so ….

  • LinMad

    I think Lin was about to get pulled out right now but he diffused by getting on the line

  • DX

    WTF, 2/4 for FT

  • Lin Win

    How do you even foul like that? Who fouls with their leg up

  • zxcvb

    Hammered on his fouls.

  • Lin assist to Frank 30-43

  • real-dsb

    there we go! Kam hits the open 3 from Lin!

  • real-dsb

    great defense by Lamb, anticipating the pass

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin out for robert

  • LinMad

    wow Lin out for Brian Roberts

  • real-dsb

    2q752 Lin out

  • orLinaryjoe

    Brian Roberts? LOL.

  • real-dsb

    it’s the ankle. =p

  • orLinaryjoe

    Hawes!

  • cdblue10

    Of course,he doesn’t want his fave son Kemba to be outplayed

  • Lin Win

    Yeah Roberts! HAHAHAH

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Cliff, leave the kid alone.

  • CJSHYY

    He didn’t score so he’s out…. smh!

  • How come Lin’s eyes looked swollen?

  • 1mtoldman

    crying over his use in charlotte?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Now Lin loses min to Robert. Lol.

  • cdblue10

    Kemba is immune to everything but Lin obviously play better than him yet he was taken out,2nd foul is nothing on his substitution pattern if thats the case

  • NONONO

    got multiple bumps and kicks

  • real-dsb

    Lin out, time for GSW to put the game away

  • LinMad

    Kemba is 0-5, gets 12 minutes. Lin has 2 pts and 2 asts, gets 5 minutes

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Where the heck is Lin agent?

  • that might be it

  • LinMad

    Robert will get more minutes than Lin today with no producton

  • CJSHYY

    That’s the plan…From what coach said… I can tell Lin will play less min today unless he scores big but he didn’t even take one shot.

  • sws94

    Take Lin to the locker room. Probably OK but just check for sure.

  • LinMad

    I don’t know how any hornet fans can’t see Lin is being marginalized

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    For what? He’s fine.

  • sws94

    Lin might have been hurt with the foot to the head. Looks woozy.

  • 1mtoldman

    well ronnie we tried to tell them. when an old reganite like you and an old communist like me can agree on something well well, even there they go again.

    we’re probably rite.

  • sws94

    He was kicked in the head.

  • LinMad

    He got to the line twice and he’s play making.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kill the gottem Bees.

  • cdblue10

    THis coach makes Mchale god for LIn

  • your son’s voltaire

    so Lin isn’t a starter, gets replaced on the 2nd unit by a scrub. where is clafford gonna demote Lin to next?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s fine to shoot freethrow.

  • 1mtoldman

    there are many lin fans not a few of them on this site and posting now who cant see it.

  • LinMad

    nice interior d, jsut let green go coast to coast

  • Ulysses Modder

    right!

  • Lin should shoot some 3s when he’s back

  • 1mtoldman

    d leauge?

  • LinMad

    Lin won’t produce if he’s being played like this by the coach. I think he should stop trying, go ask for a trade already

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin needs to just say ‘screw it’ and shoot every chance he gets. i’ll cheer just for the shot attempts

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Cliff marginalize Lin to a new low level.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Green has 2 fouls. Bench him!

  • Lin Win

    HAHA no defense on hawes because they know he’s not good

  • CJSHYY

    So he made 6 pts.

  • cdblue10

    I enjoyed the 2 seasons in Houston better than this garbage team

  • I hope Lin will shoot lots of 3s when he’s back, even when covered
    That might be what Clifford wants anyway

  • kjch

    Time to be the alpha

  • CJSHYY

    I don’t think so…

  • LinMad

    There really is no reason to bench Lin for 2 fouls knowing he only gets 15-17 minutes a game now. He should have some more leverage

  • Ulysses Modder

    Problem of Lin in Houston was only Mchale

  • cdblue10

    Exactly

  • wandertheglobe

    It doesn’t look like Lin will be getting the benefit of these refs calling foul tonight.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I see no evidence that he’s allowed.

  • cdblue10

    But he played him the right way even if he’s a bad coach

  • CJSHYY

    I hope he gets 10 min in 2nd half.

  • Lin Win

    CLifford subbing the whole roster to see what works. Guess he didn’t do any homework.

  • Lin Win

    No it’s Har en as well. Look at Ty Lawson now.

  • David Kim

    Most of 2nd units offense run for the lamb now

  • Ulysses Modder

    This same play of Curry, was foul of Lin

  • LinMad

    What I’ve observed this season is that Coach Clifford has a shorter leash on Lin than Byron or Mchale.

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin will be held back by these 3 refs tonight.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Right way? He started this whole bench Lin trend.

  • cdblue10

    If you compare him to this coach,I’ll better choose him

  • FSW

    Dnp cd

  • not true, Harden never passed to Lin & went after JLin one time

  • Lin Win

    Haha Walker man ! 0points 0ast in 18mins

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If you don’t demand trade, what are you waiting for?

  • orLinaryjoe

    0-7 smh

  • Pete Roces

    I really admire Lin’s strong character, nobody in NBA can withstand these kind of treatment from his own team, coach, players and refs. Time to think of an alternative route, NBA just won’t allow him to excel.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    by the count of the comments here…can gauge that this must be a horrible game….

  • cdblue10

    he has a good game,that’s the problem and concern

  • Alain Gervais

    Oh oh here roberts come for Lins minutes

  • CaliUSMC

    Roberts with 5pts already……….. lol

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Clifford is like a mad scientist…every game is an experiment…sad:(

  • LinMad

    and why is Kemba still in? lol

  • cdblue10

    hard to decide on his situation

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Lin didn’t take one shot so…. Cliff wants you to score…

  • CaliUSMC

    kemba another miss.. .0/8 in 18mins

  • Rick Johnson

    Walker 0 pts, 0 Ast

  • orLinaryjoe

    0-8, can’t win that way

  • wandertheglobe

    Kemba 0/8 zero dime.

  • CJSHYY

    Good to see that… Haha!

  • james brown

    experiment with JLIN’s time..that’s for sure.

  • Lin Win

    Walker no points no ast in the first half
    IT’S OK !
    He’ll drop bombs in the 4th for us.

  • CaliUSMC

    wtf man im done watching this game..

  • kittyhead

    Don’t worry he will still have his 40mins to pad stats!

  • cdblue10

    It’s time for him and the agent to say something,his career is on the line this year.with the way he was used,there’s no way he’ll get a good contract next year

  • DX

    The answer is WTF.

  • jeremy

    Lin, time to move on

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    hopeless in Charlotte

  • Singapore BB Fan

    at least he is trying his best….not a bad thing…never try never know.

  • Dorothy

    injury LOL

  • james brown

    Cliff; we live and die with KW..hope we don’t die often!

  • LinMad

    better stand up for himself

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I would take injury sit out

  • jeremy

    Everytime Clifford takes Lin out
    It seems more of a punishment rather than trying to save Lin for later
    I do feel like Clifford enjoys it to some extent lol
    jk hes doing his job but its still annoying

  • Whitman Lam

    He never does. Needs to get T’d up a couple times yelling at the refs.

  • LinMad

    I do think he’s sadistic

  • NONONO

    Good lesson for Cliff and Kemba – It is easy to score if you do not care much about defense.

  • cdblue10

    He’s like Mchale but Clifford is worse because he’s singing different tone in front of camera

  • CaliUSMC

    He’s just taking advantage of the situation. He knows Lin is a pushover.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I think they need to call off the Asian night, it’s embarrassing.

  • DX

    I don’t know how to say. But Lin should leave ASAP. This is even worse than Lakers.

  • LinMad

    Lin is not even in the Hornets’ equation anymore. Better ask for a trade soon.

  • jeremy

    McHale let Lin play when team was down
    cliford doesnt do that

  • Pete Roces

    What’s Lin thinking right now? regret joining Hornets? quitting? send sms to agent after the game or praying for MDA to call him?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Much worse. Lakers traded for him and they want to tank. This franchise lied to him.

  • cdblue10

    yep thats the big difference

  • LinMad

    exactly

  • DX

    Lesson? I don’t think they are teachable.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    don’t think he is a quitter….just find an open spot and shot the daylight out of GSW.

  • LinMad

    ya there’s no why anyone can defend Clifford’s decision of playing Lin 5 minutes the first half. I don’t buy the 2 fouls BS when clearly Lin barely gets any time/opportunity in the 2nd half.

  • gandychan

    I foresee some DNP CDs coming up. Brian Roberts has just took the backup PG spot.

  • jeremy

    okay chill lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    You’re not far from it.

  • cdblue10

    He can still salvage the season if he wants too,if he’s looking for a sign from above,this is one of those,buy out the contract!

  • real-dsb

    Kemba 0-8 FG, 0 AST, 0 FT, 0 PTS at the half. Not surprised.

    Lin makes Kemba so much better when Lin’s on the floor with him.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin better come out aggressive in second half with Walker AWOL.

  • LinMad

    he can’t play make like Lin and some games he will miss like crazy. When he’s good at shooting, he’s really good, but if he sucks, he really sucks.

  • CJSHYY

    Maybe w Lin’s sore ankle… I don’t want Lin to play either for few min & bad stats… smh! This is worst than Rox & Lakers.

  • Dan Cohen

    that’s lin’s fault..for inconsistent.
    for this game, might be his sore ankle. but no more excuse.. sick of excuse for him now.

  • Whitman Lam

    Defender has to be directly in front of the offensive player and have their feet set outside the restricted circle. Anything less is a blocking foul.

  • jeremy

    I like walker but any other coach wouldnt have let him play 19mins in that first half
    just awful

  • LinMad

    tbh, I’d rather Lin get DNP-CD and just not show up to practice anymore while getting paid to sit on bench. All Lin fans should just turn their backs on the Hornets. Lin should just collect the $2m, then move on to next season.

    Oh ya, he also needs to stop promoting Hornets.

  • Rzo Vlade

    hate to say this why dell curry being honor…last time i check he was a scrub

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What? 5 min?

  • cdblue10

    He is a scrub playing in a scrub team

  • LinMad

    inconsistent of what? the only inconsistency is his minutes.

  • CJSHYY

    What? Really? In fact, I don’t know anything about him at all. LOL!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    for producing a superstar son –

  • jeremy

    He wasnt a scrub lol
    he was a decent 6th man

  • occupatio

    his main honor is that he’s curry’s father.

  • Rick Johnson

    It’s a ploy to recruit Steph. Is it a coincidence they do it when they play GSW?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I would not know who he was had Lin didn’t sign with this team.

  • Dorothy

    I started dislike him, I think his leadership and humility is fake, the way he plays ISO.

  • NONONO

    Right. Good lesson for Hornets fans.

  • Rzo Vlade

    make sense

  • Alain Gervais

    Thats a bit rude.

  • cdblue10

    Can’t play consistently if you don’t have a consistent minutes

  • Rzo Vlade

    just honest sorry

  • LinMad

    This game, Lin will only get to make like 5 pts in 10 minutes of play time. That’s all he will get.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    the NBA is for entertainment ….not life and death…look at Shaq and Charles…

  • real-dsb

    all-time Hornets pts leader

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin and his state compare a lot. 11.7 ppg as a career.

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! I only think that blog looks so fake to me. LOL!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Somebody had to.

  • occupatio

    for such a short speech, why does he need notes?

  • Mr Chuckles

    you know, at some point, Lin has to “be ready” no matter what minutes he gets. teams don’t care about if you got inconsistent minutes. they just care if you produced with the minutes you had.

  • Rzo Vlade

    he is one dimensional he only shoot three he is slow on def…….he is a scrub in the old days

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    OK Dell, too long.

  • Alain Gervais

    atleast 13.5 points for 6 season

  • AlexBB

    Hope GSW blows Hornet out of the water..

  • Alain Gervais

    I don’t know enough to comment. I’m 22 so way way before my time

  • JoeTeam

    they are a great family. It takes time to thank you family when it’s genuine.

  • Rzo Vlade

    shoot three…. nothing much….i watch hornets old days

  • Rick Johnson

    Better make it the best 5 minutes he’s played.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t think so… for Dell, it will be around 20 pts.

  • kittyhead

    If he isnt ready for this game, he should not play. That’s on him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes they are, but too long.

  • cdblue10

    or buyout

  • Alain Gervais

    His son is down the same thing

  • CJSHYY

    Haha!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    no…don’t think GSW is going to embarrass hornets in front of Dell Curry.

  • jeremy

    lol
    hes no leader and thats just how he plays
    thats why hes not a star lol despite being the no.1 guy at CHA

  • CJSHYY

    Well, he maybe will not get that many min now bc Roberts got 5 pts already. smh!

  • Rzo Vlade

    at least his son had great handles…..dad only good at standing at the corner….too short to def shooting guard and slow for guarding PG……he is a bit like troy daniels

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The rest of the team must be very bad.

  • Alain Gervais

    his wife is fiiiiiiinnnnneeee!!!!

  • LinMad

    I think following the San Bernardino shooting is better than watching this game.

  • heart

    Give me some updates guys/gals. Can’t watch right now. Looked at box score and Lin has the lowest minutes w/ no FG… Walker w/ 0/8FG=0pt so far.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Business is business. Dell would support his son over his employer.

  • LinMad

    Kemba will most likely get 36 minutes today with very low production. Like 4 pts 1 assist. Lin will be lucky to get 10 minutes today and he’ll end up with more pts and assists than KW.

  • Rzo Vlade

    I kinda like stephanie ready

  • cdblue10

    Playing time for Lin on this game is less than 10 minutes

  • he’s also the #1 all-time scorer in Hornets history so he deserves the honor plus being the dad of a reigning MVP

  • heart

    SMH! Cliff???

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I can’t think of a worse first half than this one. Not how Lin played but how he’s treated.

  • Pete Roces

    Sad to say, this might be Lin’s last season in NBA. All signs point to that direction. Miracles? I don’t think so.

  • LinMad

    Marginalized. Cliff will use ankle sprain as excuse.

  • cdblue10

    He’s actually playing good,I can’t grasp the reason for him being benched.

  • CJSHYY

    I start to think maybe Lin will not play in 2nd half or only another 5 min bc Roberts got 5 pts already.

  • Rzo Vlade

    wow never heard that….thats how trash the hornets is being led by a scrub…………from the very start I knew hornets are trash

  • LinMad

    that’s fine. NBA can stop using Lin to make money. Lin can make a lot more in China and be respected too.

  • JoeTeam

    So I have a story about Dell and his family.

    I was at an event last year and the family walked in. I didn’t recognize him as that was my first notice of them (later, I came to know them a lot on TV highlights). My host buddy said, let’s give them our seats, and while I was confused, I just went and offered our seats. He declined, and that was quite a classy move because arguably, he and his family were the most important people in that room.

    That’s why Dell should be honored – he did the NBA thing, and what you see in him as a down to earth father to a generation who are also leading was true when he was rightfully offered a seat that he turned down. Very humble and took no privileges even with rightfully offered by a guy who didn’t know who he was, but knew it was the team play.

    I bet there are other sports celebs who would not even look twice at us.

  • heart

    We saw that coming, didn’t we. Cliff’s true face is showing crystal clear now…

  • heart

    Sick. Glad I can’t watch right now…

  • LinMad

    BROB sitting ahead of Lin now lol so I believe Hawes and BROB will go in before Lin does.

  • Pete Roces

    Why CBA? I think Euroleague is the better alternative provided they are not racist and biased like NBA.

  • Rzo Vlade

    personality he is good…..but his basketball days scrub….hornets are know trash in old days

  • Ulysses Modder

    In the next season Lin has to return to New York

  • Alain Gervais

    Lamb starts second

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No one question his kindness.

  • kittyhead

    But he can opt in next season…so techically he still can play in the NBA for 1 more season.

  • LinMad

    I think he tried

  • real-dsb

    I don’t see it that way at all. Worst case scenario is that Lin is a bench player in NBA.

  • LinMad

    KW is mad. “WHERE THE F IS THE HELP AT!?”

  • cdblue10

    He needs to.

  • JoeTeam

    therefore people here calling him a scrub is probably unjust.

  • Pete Roces

    sure he can still play, but what role? as the 9th man again in a scrub team in the weaker EC?

  • JoeTeam

    Like I said, he’s not a scrub to me.

  • cdblue10

    I hate this coach,a lier and a deceitful human being!!!

  • I am The Jason

    Brooklyn or Milwaukee.

  • LinMad

    Team Chemistry is going to get toxic soon when Lin keeps being marginalized.

  • jeremy

    damn Lamb in and we wont see Lin until 2mins left lol

  • Pete Roces

    I don’t think he wants to play as a bench player forever.

  • real-dsb

    cool story

  • LinMad

    Maybe never. BROB might go in.

  • kittyhead

    That’s his choice. It’s sad his present goal is to have playing time now again.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lamb zero defense.

  • JoeTeam

    yep, when you brush up with famous people and they treat you right, it gives us all hope in the good of all people.

  • cdblue10

    I said it before,Kemba is just an ordinary player if he’s up against a good defensive team

  • Ulysses Modder

    Kemba and Lamb not know the word defense

  • Pete Roces

    We, as Lin fans, should just pray that somehow miracles would happen.

  • Lx

    Go Hornets, they are putting up a fight!

  • LinMad

    3 FT

  • sws94

    Lamb is not as good without Lin.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kemba frustrated. Fouling now.

  • LinMad

    KW and Lamb aren’t as good without Lin

  • Singapore BB Fan

    MJ shouldn’t have extended Cliff’s contract.

  • cdblue10

    BUt the deceitful coach doesn’t see that though

  • heart

    Cliff is not keeping his promise alright. His true character is showing…

  • your son’s voltaire

    one positive out of this game is Curry racking up fantasy buckets for me thanks to Kemba “gaurding” him ahah

  • kittyhead

    Clifford loves his scoring ability and rewards him playing time and runs plays for him. Who cares about defense?

  • real-dsb

    Not sure why people have problems with Dell Curry night. It’s not like they’re retiring his number.

    Just giving arguably the best Hornets player of all-time some credit. Even though he wasn’t an all-star or anything, he’s still probably the best Charlotte Hornets player of all-time.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kemba air ball

  • LinMad

    Kemba playing like Kobe now

  • real-dsb

    Sure, if Dell Curry played for a storied franchise like the Lakers, he’d just be another “scrub”, but this is the Charlotte Hornets!

  • CJSHYY

    1-12 for Kemba. What a night.

  • JoeTeam

    CHA really want to lose. Game plan for GSW greatness, I can live with that.

  • kittyhead

    Just like Mchale…lol Anyway MJ still can fire him next season…: ) Win-win.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kemba stamp of approval. shoot and hope for the best

  • kittyhead

    OK, lets celebrate the 20th V for Warriors!!

  • LinMad

    well at least the bench players Lamb and Zeller are making it a little exciting

  • jeremy

    he was not a scrub

  • JoeTeam

    what is a scrub? Start down that road and you have to entertain convos about Lin being a scrub. I don’t use that word, I try to talk about behavior. Kobe acted very mean to JLin, yelling at him. Is he a mean person? I don’t know, somebody loves him.

  • Pete Roces

    You guys think Lin is really injured? or its Hornets ploy not to play him much this game?

  • JoeTeam

    ding!

  • cdblue10

    He moves pretty well

  • JoeTeam

    if it is a ploy, it is to let GSW win easily lol.

  • Lx

    and he doesn’t get bench. amazing 😀

  • cdblue10

    Kemba has being raped.

  • Dan Cohen

    Word from the sidelines–Lin is ailing over the ankle injury

  • Dan Cohen

    Word from the sidelines–Lin is ailing over the ankle injuryi

  • your son’s voltaire

    you know you’re a bad defender when Curry doesn’t have to shoot jumpers but walks it in for layups all the time..

  • CJSHYY

    So he will not play?

  • real-dsb

    ouch Kemba 1-13 now

  • Alain Gervais

    who told you this

  • cdblue10

    Curry!!!!!!

  • sws94

    Some people are saying LIn’s ankle is bothering him a lot. Maybe he doesn’t play much if he comes back at all.

  • JoeTeam

    uh huh!

  • LinMad

    do you work for Hornets damage control department?

  • your son’s voltaire

    look at kemba just stand there underneath the basket watching curry hit a wide open 3

  • Rick Johnson

    Kemba can’t guard Curry.

  • LinMad

    who are these “people”? cause from what I’ve seen, when Cliff took Lin out he was talking to him like he made a mistake.

  • JoeTeam

    first time I saw her, I thought she was Steph’s sister.

  • jeremy

    Still no Lin? hmmm

  • Alain Gervais

    Its like this every game

  • kittyhead

    If this is real, he should never play from the beginning…

  • JoeTeam

    long is right, see what I did ha ha?

  • usually 1 min left in Q3

    not sure about this game

  • JoeTeam

    1 more minute.

  • cdblue10

    Don’t hope you’ll get disappointed

  • your son’s voltaire

    he’s finally coming in. but the damage is already done 🙁

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t think he will come back….

  • LinMad

    I saw Lin waiting to go in to play but he jsut walked back to his bench.

  • real-dsb

    3q2m Curry beat Kemba in footrace for fast break layup

  • Al

    Nobody can blame Lin if he is not playing

  • Alain Gervais

    he will

  • jeremy

    wasnt that roberts heading to the scorers table?

  • Ulysses Modder

    time out!

  • I hope Lin will come out with quick score of 3-5pts

    That might be the only way to finish this game

  • LinMad

    Kemba keep shooting so your % can go down to what you usually average.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I can’t assess how sprained his ankle is, but between my entertainment and his health? I chose his health. Better not force it if he really can’t.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Seriously though, who can?

  • cshot

    cliff needs to go dig a very very deep hole and put himself in it

  • LinMad

    If Lin gets to play again, he needs to stat pad and be selfish.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    haha ..Cliff is so confused he forgotten to call for timeout…

  • JoeTeam

    I need to crack open a beer then. Oops, still early on the west coast.

  • MorlockO

    LOL kemba’s tribute game to Kobe hahaha… when kemba’s shots are not falling, he is as good as useless…

  • sws94

    I asked and was told from another forum. Says a friend is at the game. Guess he’s near the Hornets bench. But Lin is going to give it a shot.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    A lot to learn from GSW…the team is not forcing play…it flows…

  • Lin in with 2:01 left in Q3

  • sws94

    No he doesn’t. That won’t make things better for him. He needs to do all he can to help the team win. And that may mean no stats.

  • Ulysses Modder

    kemmmmmbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Rick Johnson

    Take Walker off Curry

  • Of course Curry just got hot and scored 2 3s

  • Put Lin on Curry, Kemba can’t do it

  • Rick Johnson

    Curry murdering Kemba

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin corner work

  • LinMad

    Lin is gonna be 5th option to shoot.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kemba looks left….JLin is standing in the right corner

  • heart

    Can’t watch so I keep checking box score, no Lin.. Cliff is using ankle issue to ‘limit’ Lin PT? Might as well, he should have been on injury list, and not play at all. SMH!

  • cdblue10

    LOL

  • zxcvb

    Kemba is having the NBA’s worst game of the season right now.

    2-16, Harden-level defense. He refuses to defend…only wants his stats.

  • JoeTeam

    oh my … another 3.

  • real-dsb

    Just for the record, Kemba is guarding Curry. Lin is guarding Livingston.

  • kittyhead

    NO~~~~~~~~~~~I dont want Lin to do hard work and Kemba benefits…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kemba goes left…he doesn’t go right

  • LinMad

    Curry cooking Kemba in a pot

  • Ulysses Modder

    kemmmmbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • real-dsb

    LOL, this is just video game

  • Singapore BB Fan

    put JLin on Curry…to stop the bleeding..

  • blubell

    Curry just scored 11 points in less than 2 minutes…

  • cdblue10

    Slaughtered!!!!!

  • sws94

    Forget it. Curry is amazing.

  • zxcvb

    Steph has stolen Kemba’s soul. HOLY MOLY.

  • Alain Gervais

    For the records. Curry shot 2 more then Kemba

  • LinMad

    Cliff doesn’t acknowledge Lin as a good defender or shooter. What a sad season.

  • jeremy

    Did Lin even touch the ball?
    Speak up man!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I LOVE IT!

  • cshot

    can’t speak up and ruin the play that was drawn

  • Dan Cohen

    I have insider info.. friend from friend…not even joking.

  • cdblue10

    Lin didn’t even touch the ball since he came in

  • LinMad

    This the time Lin needs to say, “My ankle hurts now”

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JLin hasn’t touch the ball for 2 mins…

  • Ulysses Modder

    Lin be sad again.

  • cshot

    this effing sucks. i hate the hornets. i hate cliff ahhhh I’m raging so hard

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s designed.

  • JoeTeam

    We can let ourselves say the best eva! and then you start seeing his magic more.

    I would love to see the Curry Lin best friends out for a beer shot more often. They fit each other – they play differently, but I imagine Lin to be a good family guy like Curry.

  • zxcvb

    HOW’S THE GAME CLIFFORD? Your NO LIN strategy is working out great!

  • zxcvb

    Kemba is trash.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Kemba making it a personal battle against Curry and getting destroyed the whole game

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JLin invisible act…hiding in the corner

  • zxcvb

    Kemba needs to be suspended by CHA. His effort is a disgrace. He just gave up and let Curry shoot wide-open 3s for fun.

  • Dan Cohen

    forget linsanity..
    this is curryfury

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No one from Hornet announcers said it’s Kemba who guarded Curry.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Tonight he is having big troubles on both ends.

  • JoeTeam

    Folks. I can live without seeing Lin this game – rest is garbage time, and let’s just watch Steph keep putting in the 3s. No need to have Lin suffer that indignity with a twisted ankle.

  • LinMad

    At this rate, I think KW’s ego will get broken and he’ll sit his butt on the bench himself.

  • leeda harun

    cliffford just gonna say gsw is too good.

  • Dan Cohen

    cliff should say f-k it to kw..
    but no.. he is 12 million player.

  • wandertheglobe

    Kemba thinks he can out gun Curry?

  • zxcvb

    “Kemba played great defense. Curry just too good!”

  • Mr Chuckles

    and he would be right.

  • zxcvb

    ISO ball from Lamb.

  • Dan Cohen

    once curryfury gets into this streak.. it’s game over. kw couldn’t defend him.

  • jeremy

    Lin cant even touch the ball with 2nd unit now? wow

  • LinMad

    gg Lin will never get to play PG.

  • Rick Johnson

    Now Roberts playing PG!!! Lin never getting ball. SMH

  • heart

    Want GSW Blow out the Hornets. Anyone (true Lin fans) cares for them any more?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hornets is exposed…really bad play…unbearable to watch. JLin is not in action at all..

  • Curry has hit 40pts in 3 quarters.
    Kemba should stop guarding him

  • sws94

    Lin is still in the corner.

  • real-dsb

    Kemba hasn’t been guarding Curry LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Of all the guards in the NBA Jeremy Lin is the only one who could actually guard Steph Curry.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Decoy….

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I care about Jeremy’s ankle more.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Ridiculous.

  • grover chang

    I pray Lin keeps his head up and put his faith to his word and stay at peace. Stay strong in the Lord. His team is ignoring him.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Finally

  • Dorothy

    33333333333333333

  • your son’s voltaire

    so the “injury” excuse to play Lin just 5 minutes all of 3 quarters in BOGUS since he’s in right now

  • sport

    Checked box score, it’s 3rd quarter and Lin only has 7:55minutes and 2 points. Just when you think things couldn’t get worst it does. This is worst than Lakers! So glad I’ve given up on watching Lin’s game. Let me know when he finally gives in and just looks to score for himself and prove he’s a star before talking about “teamball” ever again. No one is going to listen to the Asian guy not designated as the “star” of the team. If Lin doesn’t wake up his NBA will be numbered and will be stuck as a bench guy forever unless MDA gets hired and saves him.

  • heart

    Me too.

  • Lin Win

    Lin 6 possessions since the 3rd quarter 0 TOUCHES
    ZERO TOUCHES with Kembrick and Batum

  • cdblue10

    Yep but the coach is blind

  • real-dsb

    yes, Lin with the 3!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Guts! JLin 3

  • Ulysses Modder

    I said in the next 6 games will be just one win

  • zxcvb

    Get your stats, J-Lin. Kemba ruined this already.

  • JoeTeam

    I liked that 3, team gave him a 2nd shot at it.

  • real-dsb

    good confidence. come back with the 3 after the miss

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin is auditioning for his next team right now

  • grover chang

    What a waste. Lin as pg would at least make this exciting. Doesn’t MJ realize he is boring Charlotte.

  • zxcvb

    That was always the plan, though. Even at the start of the season.

  • spiderman

    The media will probably ask Lin to explain the loss, and will also post his picture with a headline like “Curry destroys Hornets”

  • MorlockO

    no defense no offense…

  • adele

    Sad but true

  • real-dsb

    nice 3 KAM

  • Lin Win

    haha that Hawes shot LOL

  • jeremy

    Lin ask for the ball mannnn

  • kittyhead

    He doesnt need the audition. Warriors love him.

  • zxcvb

    I wish this game was a wake-up call to Cliff — you’ll never beat anyone good with your current lineup/approach.

    But it probably won’t be.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Why is Robert running the PG?

  • Mr Chuckles

    I really don’t like Hawes.

  • adele

    Care about his health.

  • JJ Hui

    The coach and Kemba killed this game!

  • LinMad

    its garbage time at 8 mins

  • Mr Chuckles

    Just dumb. White flag.

  • NONONO

    It looks like 3pt practices for two benches.

  • your son’s voltaire

    let me rephrase. Lin is negotiating his next contract with his next team right now

  • grover chang

    This is horrible coaching. You barely play the guy all season. A few garbage minutes and now you thrust him in the biggest game of the season. SMH.

  • Mr Chuckles

    I want Lin out. Don’t risk further injury.

  • JJ Hui

    I think the coach didnt know Jlin is a PG.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Let’s hope Lin plays the entire 4th quarter since it’s a blow out…No need to bring Kemba back…just rest him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    So Robert is the PG over lin too? The corners seem like Lin permanent home.

  • grover chang

    Waited way too long to play Lin, then not give him the ball. Zzzzzz. A potential epic game turned into such a snooze feast. If MJ plan is to entertain the fans, his team is failing.

  • adele

    Been like that. Nobody noticed.

  • sws94

    Lin’s ankle is bothering him. If it is garbage time, he shouldn’t play the 4th. A few more minutes and he’s done for the night.

  • LinMad

    I hope this team’s chemistry dies after this game. Lin needs to move to a different team soon. Coach won’t even let him play PG.

  • JJ Hui

    He is not that smart or he doesnt care!

  • heart

    Jazz was the best competition for GSW so far. They kept the scores close and even lead. Why? They played team ball. Hornets are not even close…

  • Mr Chuckles

    This is so hard to watch. Bad basketball.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This confirms Lin is marginalized to the worst by Cliff.

  • sport

    Hornets has been a bottom team for many years, don’t think he cares, it’s just a fun game for him to have his own team and call the shots while staying relevant to basketball. I bet Kobe wished he had the type of money MJ does to buy his own team as well.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin blocked that shot

  • Mr Chuckles

    Lin block?!

  • NONONO

    Cliff is giving up.

  • adele

    People here will wait after 30 games or after the all star. Or maybe after the season. Lol

  • real-dsb

    was that Lin who blocked Speights?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Saw JLin is so quick..to double

  • grover chang

    I’m use to jordan’s shots going in. Not now.

  • real-dsb

    wow Hawes with a Olajuwon move

  • Mr Chuckles

    Lin looking for another block there.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin blocking centers now. first it was Nene and now Speights

  • grover chang

    I guess if his team won’t let him affect the game on offense, he will do it with defense. He hates to lose.

  • LinMad

    Lin is 5th option even with 2nd unit.

  • sport

    LOL shots on the court yea, shots off the court and picking talents not so much.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Man, they’re not running any play for Lin.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    You noticed the play on the left side while JLin is standing on the right corner..ALL the Time

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin out of the game. gaddamnit

  • cdblue10

    That’s what I said…He has no role on this team

  • Mr Chuckles

    Lin out. Goodnight all.

  • Lin Win

    Hornets fans on Walker be like:
    We played clutch defense in the 4th so it’s ok to lose!

  • grover chang

    I’m sure Steph inside is saying thanks for ignoring Jlin, just makes my night easier.

  • JoeTeam

    chuckle lol.

  • Lin Win

    He’s injured its ok! This experiment is all on walker

  • LinMad

    I’m officially done with this team.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    wow..Lin is out…I guess Lin needs a rest eventhough the next game is on Saturday.

  • real-dsb

    Lin’s out, Hornets throwing in the towel. That’s good.

  • your son’s voltaire

    sorry but im done with excuses

  • wandertheglobe

    No need for Lin to play in garbage time. Rest the ankle.

  • adele

    Been like that all along.

  • real-dsb

    they’re putting in the garbage time unit, Lin not needed.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hornets has to start shooting 3s to close the game…no way you can keep missing 2pt shots

  • JoeTeam

    feed Clifford?

  • Lin Win

    Clifford’s little experiment with Walker and Batum failed AGAIN!
    Good loss!

  • zxcvb

    True. But it’d be nice to see him statpad to make up for past games.

  • leeda harun

    Have a goodnite sleep ..lol

  • Rick Johnson

    Really starting to hate Clifford. How many minutes did he get to play PG and play his game?

  • LinMad

    I guess, Cliff is saving Lin for nothing lol next game will still be the same. Probably 15 minutes or less.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Coaching in this game was to stupid for words.

  • jeremy

    even then why not draw some plays for Lin

  • zxcvb

    Coaching disaster by Clifford of late.

    Lost an easily winnable game against CLE. Friggin’ DESTROYED by GSW like a D-League team when UTA and BKN kept up and almost won.

    Another bad extension by MJ and Cho. They’re so knee-jerk, always with the early season extensions.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Batum? Wake up man.

  • JoeTeam

    it’s not an excuse, it was announced on Tues.

  • jeremy

    yep thats what i meant

  • cshot

    this is so ridiculous

  • sport

    No really? been done since last 3 games. Just follow Lin’s stats and highlight, no point in watching a bunch of nobodies chucking shots and marginalizing the best player on the team just cause of his race color.

  • grover chang

    Should’ve thrown Lin in with the kitchen sink earlier in the game. Horrible management by Cliff tonight. Not playing Lin enough was one thing but playing Roberts at all in this big of a game when he hardly saw the court this season is mind boggling to me.

  • cshot

    his stats are being ruined by cliff

  • selflin

    No teamball, forget this game!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Clifford seems to be a slow learner. Going to take several games of Kemba being exposed for him to change

  • selflin

    Chunk shots and even miss wide open shots!!!

  • leeda harun

    2 days of rest…clifford didnt plan anything to stop gsw…lol

  • sport

    Ruined by every coach not named MDA!

  • JoeTeam

    why, Lin has a sprained ankle, GSW can win at will so why not pull him during garbage time? Nothing to compete for here, I’m glad CHA folded early. They had to with KW’s shooting.

  • MomentousPetey

    I’ve been questioning their knee-jerk bs too

  • occupatio

    this game was unwatchable.

    kemba shouldnt be playing basically the entire first 3 quarters. ridiculous. he was doing nothing out there.

  • Dan Cohen

    this is depressing.

  • adele

    Not this season. We’re duped.

  • grover chang

    could someone explain why they are handing out all these extensions to people on this team. We aren’t even half way through the season.

  • zxcvb

    His plan was KEMBA IS ELITE. LAMB AND BATUM ARE GODS.

    They all frickin’ suck. Only Lin has shown the ability to beat top teams in his career.

  • LinMad

    I foresee more losses coming up. Maybe 5 losses in the next 5 games cause team chemistry is officially dead. Cliff single handedly took out the one guy who brought team chemistry to the team

  • jeremy

    Hope Lin just stops playing
    I dont want him to hurt his stats
    His treatment is getting worse game by game
    They never passes him the ball today

  • zxcvb

    Would love to see a big losing streak. Teach them some lessons and manners.

  • Dan Cohen

    that I agree with..but I think seriously if lin was in charge, they will inche closer..

  • JoeTeam

    I totally disagree – KW was out there to jack up Kobe-like Turnovers. That’s Brent’s read – a jacked brick is like a TOV. Jk, you me good.

  • cshot

    ok i just saw stats and saw his minutes.. if he wasn’t playing much cus of the ankle, then thats a little better but i still hate this stupid team and coach

  • LinMad

    everyone plays better when Lin is PG

  • real-dsb

    what game are you watching? Batum’s not on the floor. It’s Kam, Roberts, Daniels, Hansbrough, Harrison.

  • Lin Win

    This is what I’ve been talking about !
    Lin HAS NO ROLE.
    He’s as good as a catch and shoot shooter the way he’s playing!
    3rd Lin’s second time on the floor and he gets ZERO touches (6 possessions) until Kemba and Batum are out and Roberts IS THE PG.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Imagine you bought the ticket to watch the game because Lin was in the promotion?

  • selflin

    Hornets really want to ask Jlin to leave them…

  • DX

    I can see Lin has some emotion. He only shot 2 times and didn’t demond the ball.

  • real-dsb

    I thought Curry was pretty fun to watch. =p

  • Dan Cohen

    oh zammmmmm. why don’t you just say, what are u smokin.

  • sport

    Nah the sacrificial lamb (Lin) just woke up and saw all that crap about teammball and defense were BS while the designation “stars” can chuck shots and TOs at will!

  • LinMad

    Lin is 5th option on 1st unit and 2nd unit now when it comes to scoring. Which is ridiculous knowing that he is shooting 46% FG and he can get to the line very easily and make wonderful plays.

  • cshot

    when and where was it reported that he sprained his ankle?

  • FSW

    Not much game planning from cliff just micromanaging – hornets cannot win with this coach and Lin unfortunately is playing out of his comfort zone- might as well not play and not pretend being a team player matters in the nba

  • grover chang

    I really question if Cliff actually watched Lin on tape when he recruited him. How could someone who said they researched Lin play him so little and out of position. Give him the second unit with the ball. I don’t know…. kind’ve like in the beginning of the season when the team was winning.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Apologize.

  • occupatio

    dont worry. there was a 15% discount.

  • cdblue10

    Just sad.

  • LinMad

    since players who are not team playing are being rewarded, Lin should start being selfish too.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I’ll stand correct when wrong, not blind like some

  • jeremy

    He never does
    he only follows coachs instructions
    Its been obvious that coach does not wanna draw any plays for Lin
    anyone but Lin

  • leeda harun

    Ha ha….they come to watch curry

  • LinMad

    Maybe he’s like, screw this coach and team. I’ll just let them tank on their own.

  • grover chang

    Just horrible. I’m so mad at Cliff. I thought he was smarter then this. I didn’t expect them to win but at least make this game fun to watch. Even Lakers vs GSW had their moments.

  • your son’s voltaire

    here’s the problem when the coach uses Lin as a SG.. the team usually doesn’t have a good enough PG to actually get the ball to Lin and so he stands in the corners waiting, and waiting, and waiting. even on the 2nd unit, he still does the same thing cus coach says he’s a SG. and knowing Lin, he doesn’t ever go against the ‘system’. sigh

  • grover chang

    I feel like we say this every year. LOL

  • sport

    Been saying that the last 5 seasons and Lin hasn’t learned anything from being marginalized! No one is going to rally behind a 10 pt Asian guy!

  • jeremy

    This is the worst treatment Lin has ever had
    Way worse than Lakers and Rockets
    Is Paul still happy with the team and Lin? smh hes quiet tn cuz he cant defend his boy Clifford anymore

  • occupatio

    the warriors repeatedly destroyed the hornets on the boards for offensive rebs, and cliff doesnt respond by putting in psycho until its too late. the GSW bigs just eat hawes/cody/kam alive. cliff is a stubborn mule.

  • LinMad

    well maybe he still gets punished either way. When he does have good games, the next game he barely plays. So what’s the point lol

  • adele

    Clifford just finalizing the job of marginalizing. He wants to confirm Mchale and Scott’s coaching to Lin. You did a great job there Clifford. You just put our Lin in the bench list.

  • leeda harun

    Clifford is not smart on offensive play……..

  • jeremy

    thats the play isnt it?
    they are running PnR when Roberts is the PG

  • cdblue10

    Hornets won good games and Lin was instrumental on those wins,Cliff thought that he can win w/o LIn…stupid coach!!!!It’s not you,it’s LIn making everyone better.

  • real-dsb

    Lakers and Rockets far worse than Hornets.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Repeat: Kemba 4 vs Steph Curry 40

    Games Over!

  • sport

    Still his mindset still insist on passing instead of shooting every opportunity he gets with the little minutes he has left. Instead of being stubborn maybe all these obstacles are god’s way of telling him to give in to the system in order to rise higher. That means looking to always shoot first before passing.

  • cdblue10

    hahahaha…I love it!!!!

  • JoeTeam

    just go to the fantasy boards, it was announced I think Monday, but I said Tues to be safe. I was surprised because nobody here reported anything. I was hoping Lin would not play as this game turned out, his numbers went down.

  • real-dsb

    but Kemba almost matched Curry on FGAs 16 to 18. LOL

  • Singapore BB Fan

    amazing isn’t it?

  • your son’s voltaire

    he can always just run to the top and get the pass from Roberts and call for a screen or just take it in himself. no point in following a dumb plan that doesn’t work

  • leeda harun

    Cliiford is not that smart.He think he is safe now when he got the extension.

  • LinMad

    Curry: 40 pts on 14 for 18
    Kemba: 4 pts on 2 for 16

    Nuff said.

  • JoeTeam

    stop, he has a sprained ankle.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    what’s wrong with P.J Hairston?….Is he hurt?

  • leeda harun

    Well kemba will try to score more next game…ha ha

  • Joe what do you know

    It a real shame that Cliff either doesn’t know how to draw up plays for Lin or too stubborn about sticking with the default options in Batum, Lamb and Walker….
    Safe to say if JLin doesn’t get traded by end of the deadline, he won’t come back as a Hornet next year. I think this game with the Warriors would serve as a reminder for him of what “could have been” would be like….

  • cdblue10

    NO.

  • sws94

    Exactly. This shows Cliff doesn’t see Lin as a scrub. Lin tried to play. That shows guts. He was visibly not on his game. You could tell how he was playing defense. A positive is I think his 3 is getting there.

  • JoeTeam

    well me too, mainly because they had the potential and if you don’t sit such a bad shooting player (KW), you aren’t going to be a good team. People do not buy in, and then you get more losing play.

  • grover chang

    That is why I’m starting to think Lin gets marginalized with every team he is on. Lin shows the coach he is the smartest guy in the room. The coach can’t take credit for the win because Lin is the reason for the win. The only coach whose ego could handle this dynamic was MDA because he wanted his pg to be the reason for the win. What happens when the coach on the floor (pg) becomes the real coach of the team. This happens. Benching.

  • sport

    No Hornets is officially worst than Lakers and Rockets just look at the minutes Lin has. But it all started with Morey, Mchale and Rocket’s hidden agenda and h*** bent on marginalizing Lin and making Linsanity a fluke.

  • leeda harun

    3 guards is not enough to beat a top team.

  • Clifford continues to show poor in-game adjustment until it’s too late.

    It won’t bode well if they reach the playoff.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He should ask to be traded or waiver.

  • grover chang

    the coach is just the jockey, Lin is the secretariat doing all the real work to win the race.

  • adele

    Kemba is really a star for this team and the face of the hornets. Hope they will show his face against this loss and not Lin’s.

  • sport

    At this rate they won’t even make it!

  • occupatio

    all of lin’s 2 shot attempts happened in one single possession. hehehe

  • heart

    Curry 40pts owns one entire quarter and more by himself.

  • Promo Sports World

    I’m a big optimist and still think the tide will turn favorably but Jeremy’s climb back up will be a hard one. Sports are funny, redemption is always around the corner, but it doesn’t seem logical to think that way at the moment….

    On another note guns have no place in society

  • Singapore BB Fan

    wow the commentators talking about superbowl. not even on this game…so bad

  • your son’s voltaire

    that may have gotten him yanked lol

  • CJSHYY

    I already turned off the game.

  • grover chang

    That;s the one thing he did right. PJ shouldn’t even get off the bench.

  • sport

    Should really ask for a trade this is ridiculous! He needs to speak up!

  • cdblue10

    Crazy to think that others coaches prepares for him while his own coach put him on the leashed

  • leeda harun

    They are embarrased for sure.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This is why he has never made allstar in the east conf. He’s a made star not proven,

  • jeremy

    Agreed but Lin doesnt break plays hes always faithful to the coaches..

  • JoeTeam

    I agree wholeheartedly. Me, I’m looking toward the January game where CHA can prevent GSW from getting the LAL record. Hope that comes to pass, that game. Linsanity, but Steph sinks a last second or OT 3.

  • LinMad

    today, Lin played the least this season at 13 minutes. And no, his ankle is not an excuse..

  • John Focker

    Didn’t even bothered to start watching. More focused on Wizards beating Lakers than this travesty.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Alright…cut the misery…signing off…close the screen. see you guys next game..

  • jeremy

    Yah and now no plays called for him whatsoever

  • CJSHYY

    Can’t believe Lakers win vs Wizards for 1 now??!

  • LinMad

    same, i’m very very very close to cancel my League Pass and get a partial refund.

  • jeremy

    doesnt mean you cant draw plays for him
    if hes really hurt that bad, dont play him

  • JoeTeam

    why not? Harrison Barnes has been sitting out due to ankle. Does that mean you think JLin didn’t play in NYK playoffs due to a choice?

  • occupatio

    stephanie ready — ive never heard someone praise 0-8 for shooting as glowingly as she did tonight. ‘oh, kemba’s shots almost all went in! he just has to keep shooting. they were all good shots. they all looked good. he has to just keep doing what hes doing.’

    just shut your trap already. so annoying to listen to.

  • jeremy

    Thank you

  • JoeTeam

    me too.

  • grover chang

    I finally agree. This was ridiculous. Ankle or no Ankle. I don’t know what Cliff is thinking but whatever it is the end result is a complete waste. Lin only hope is to play for someone who is really desperate for a pg. I don’t see any candidates in that department.

  • jeremy

    either way he will have a lot of offers
    still a quality back up PG

  • LinMad

    if curry had those garbage minutes, we would have lost by 30+

  • cdblue10

    LIn chose the wrong team and the wrong coach!!!!

  • adele

    Rockets is the initial, seconded by the lakers and finalized by Hornets in terms of marginalizing Lin. Clifford confirmed what Mc Hale and Scott did to Lin.

  • John Focker

    Only good thing out of this crappy game: Kemba getting exposed as not being able to carry the team.

  • CJSHYY

    She had to otherwise what else could she say? Damn it so bad… LOL!

  • cshot

    thank you

  • Dan Cohen

    how do you know they are blinking..
    it’s all online.. as far as I can tell, you can be closing your eyes and typing if you took keyboarding lessons because it’s so hard to watch.

  • JoeTeam

    The kept him at the ball for his 2nd 3. First one hit back rim I think and they pushed it back to him and he swished it. I thought that was respectful, and maybe that was drawn up for him I don’t know enough.

  • jlim7

    So, how many of you has already given up Hornets? I still wait for miracle near trade deadline, may be they will trade Kemba / Al? Last season with Lakers, I gave up when they benched Lin, and wasted my ILP for 60+ games.

  • LinMad

    i agree but Cliff is very good at convincing. I thought he was the right coach too. Not anymore.

  • sport

    NYK was an injury that required surgery! Ankle is nothing!

  • leeda harun

    Ha hha.

  • heart

    KW is the face of the Hornets but a manufactured ‘star’ not a true one.

  • grover chang

    Thank God the game is over.

  • JoeTeam

    Sorry, I have had so many ankle sprains it’s not funny. It is something, it messes up everything.

  • heart

    Exactly, hog city is coming…

  • Let’s keep in mind that JLin’s right ankle was still sore in the morning so he’s limited in this game.
    It’s good that JLin wanted to play anyway to fight through it but it’s clear he’s not as aggressive as usual.

    Good clutch 3 and a couple FTs.

    Hope his ankle will heal in 3 days vs the Bulls

  • sport

    Never gave a dime to the racist NBA, and never will unless Lin gets treated fairly.

  • Dorothy

    LOL, you funny, MJ signed shoe deal with Kemba this summer

  • Alain Gervais

    I didn’t know it was still on. closed it when Lin subbed out

  • Dan Cohen

    problem is, if clifford is still playing his team this way, it wont matter.. maybe kw will learn and go off.. but it will not be ‘lin’ making an impact if they are playing this way.

  • CJSHYY

    Just forget about it. smh!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If Lin couldn’t even be the floor general with Robert on the floor, this disgrace coach is over.

  • Rzo Vlade

    remember cliff had a history with the rockets

  • cdblue10

    When coach doesn’t even recognized his player as instrumental of most of their wins…then it’s not a good sign

  • Lin Win

    Pretty pissed he didn’t make all the FTS. He used to hit 80%+ before Byron!

  • leeda harun

    Not going to o give up coz jlin is in the team.

  • jeremy

    that was literally the only time he touched the ball
    He was completely ignored in the 2nd half otherwiaw
    but believe what you want
    I will do the same

  • Dan Cohen

    that’s what I have been saying, but people refuse to believe it.

  • jeremy

    how? lol

  • heart

    Yet, he said he knows Lin’s game!

  • Lam

    I’m sorry to say this place is getting to be no different from the other site now. A couple of sane people in the midst of overreaction to every perceived slight on Lin.

  • JoeTeam

    yep he had that going in HOU.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not just the low min he played, it the standing corner role has become the worst.

  • grover chang

    But we say that every season. All the coaches recognize what Lin could do but his own coaches grow to dislike him. Cliff last year had mad respect for him as an opposing coach but grows to marginalize him as time goes on. Why?

  • Joe what do you know

    Ankle could be a thing…. I play the sport and I know even with a mild ankle sprain it would affect your performance and put extra load on your entire leg muscles… Not to mention this is NBA level plays we are talking about. But I’m still displeased at how Cliff is putting Lin on the bottom of his go to list. Just infuriating….

  • your son’s voltaire

    clafford following mchale’s instructions to a tee

  • JoeTeam

    that would have been fun, to see Curry score over 50 in his home town on his dad’s honor day.

    Oh wait … with Kemba’s 2-16 fail, Curry effectively scored 100 pts.

  • CJSHYY

    Lakers will win this game vs Wizards… ???

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s a liar.

  • Rzo Vlade

    wrong alexander

  • leeda harun

    We knowow

  • John Focker

    Stop it, the other site is filled with unmoderated racial slurs.

  • adele

    I’ve been saying this all along.

  • NONONO

    At least, we got one bad guy today. Look for another one.

  • heart

    Well, it’s not All on him, it was the ‘sale pitch’… Remember, Cliff told Lin he knows his game….

  • JoeTeam

    yep, my shot would be way off …

  • jlim7

    I am starting to think that Lin’s role in Rockets, Lakers and Hornets are only to impart the basketball knowledge about modern offense and for their young to learn P&R offense from Lin. He was always paired with weak P&R partner, and the better P&R partner always go to others. Like today, when Hansbrough came in, he already checked out.

  • He’ll be okay. He still hits 82.8% FT this season.

    Today is an exception. Lin just didn’t look himself today.
    He has been hitting 18-22 in the past 7 games

  • sport

    How many times will Lin be lied to and pushed aside for others before he learns to look for himself and give up his ideal of “team ball”. Does he not realize he’s at the brink of his NBA career? Just glad he can opt out of this deal. He needs another opt-out for his next team.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Refusing because it’s not connected. His role was the biggest problem.

  • CJSHYY

    What? Can you do that? Well, I will keep my LP bc season is still long…

  • JoeTeam

    that is true, this place is better. But to keep harping on Cliff and CHA because of a legit injury and then making it a Lin problem … well, put it this way, nobody is mad at anyone for H Barnes’ ankle sprain.

  • cdblue10

    Oh the lying part…Oh yeah they did pretty well!!!

  • adele

    Lip service. To me, its an act. Like a snake. Silent and deadly.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This is much worse.

  • Dorothy

    Lin wastes another precious year…

  • JoeTeam

    I have faith. He’s in good hands.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He did’t, he was lied to.

  • leeda harun

    Please elaborate

  • Dan Cohen

    kw is 12 million..
    main point is not to destroy franchise players confidence..so you always let him try again 2 or 3 times more..and THEN if it doesn’t work, you try something else.

    with a bench player that is 2 million buck, if doesn’t work once, no 2nd chances until a big while later.

  • LinMad

    i’m thinking of giving up soon. If next game isn’t a game where the coach actually empowers Lin to play his style, I’m getting a refund. I’ll still support Lin and hope he gets good games but I can’t giving Hornets any recognition. It’s no more team, it’s just Lin.

  • guest

    19 vs 31 assists. Starters a total of 7 assists.

  • Dan Cohen

    well, he has his extension, so he can afford more experiments.

  • John Focker

    If a Russian can buy an NBA team, there’s no reason a Chinese can’t.

    Here’s hoping Jack Ma (Ali Baba) buys the Nets and hires D’Antoni as HC, then sign Lin, Ed Davis, Marvin Williams, Psycho T, Kaminsky, and any other REAL team players.

  • MEL LIN

    jlin

  • JoeTeam

    That 3 made me happy … was that Roberts who fed it to him to get him going? It was great to see Lin adjust his shot and swish it. Made the game for me.

  • Dorothy

    Jack Ma actually signed an Alibaba deal with Kobe this year LOL

  • cdblue10

    Take Grant from the Sixers

  • leeda harun

    Hope jlin figure it out how to be more effective

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    A real friend would tell his friend the true how he feels. The enemy would not.

  • sport

    NBA is a very private club, not just about the money. Loads of people have the money to buy a team but only few are allowed to.

  • heart

    Yep. I don’t like her high pitch tone and her analysis sounds like Clyde Drexler to me. Like a true biased Hornets homer… I tune her out after a few games.

  • webattorney

    Here is a SCurry thought: Dell Curry said he thinks his son will keep on improving until age of 31. Game was somewhat enjoyable watching Curry embarrass Kemba.

  • joyce ward

    As I posted earlier, the NBA has already rigged who the teams playing for the championship. It’s going to be LBJ against Steph Curry. The problem with Charlotte is they have MJ as the owner with questionable ethics when is comes down to how business is done on this team. MJ and LBJ has some business dealings together, so of course Charlotte was going to take the fall in that game, then you have Dell Curry, who is friend to the team, and Steph Curry is hometown hero,guess what Charlotte loses again. As for lin, they didn’t allow him to play either of these games because the fix was in and lin is very skilled and intelligent and would have found a way to win. Lin’s skillsets are fine,it’s the politics. I think I feel more sorry for Kemba because Clifford hung him out to dry with Steph. Kemba looked really bad and I’m sure he has figured it out, that he was led to the slaughter. It may not play like that in press,but kemba know what was happening .Just use your common sense, the Hornets came back from a 23 pt lead to beat the Kings with lin/walker/batum. Why not use the same formula? Clifford not stupid,he’s playing to the politics.Also, don’t you think it’s strange that clifford signed his extension today before the game? Just some things to think about.

  • JoeTeam

    Good idea. Why not given the word is out they are going for commercial real estate bear in the next few years. I can attest that with the Clips change in ownership, owning a NBA team is a great investment (not me, but friends in the game).

  • JoeTeam

    you just have to have a good investment group to get allowed.

  • jeremy

    Yep

  • webattorney

    “Oh, my preshious”, Golum whispered.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Must be approved by team owners.

  • Dan Cohen

    wonder what the ‘highlights’ will be.

  • sws94

    Well, Kemba’s bad game gives Lin some more value in my opinion. Say, had Lin not had the ankle issue and he was productive, I think he would have had more time until the game turned ugly. Although, he would have got burned too by Curry. Those thinking Lin can stop Curry aren’t being realistic. Curry taking those long bombs is impossible to guard by anyone, I don’t even know if the most elite players can guard him.

    They need Lin’s ankle to heal. It’s obvious he was hurt. And getting kicked in the head didn’t help how he felt.

  • webattorney

    I think he meant God’s hands.

  • John Focker

    China has a healthy number of Kobeta…er, I mean loyal Kobe fans.

  • Brandon Simmons is a good Hornets fan who’s not afraid to ask the tough question.

    https://twitter.com/BSimmons25/status/672235530663419904

  • adele

    And they keep on promoting Kemba at Lins expense.

  • sws94

    He got kicked in the head. I think that had something to do with it. The first foul and 2 shots maybe. The second foul, I’m glad he hit at least one of the 2 shots.

  • leeda harun

    I believe you are right.gsw vs cle….the redemption

  • Dorothy

    Surprise, Lakers won over Wizards 108:104

  • JoeTeam

    You know it did seem like at a point, Cliff just decided to lose to LBJ by pulling Lin. They had a chance to win.

    With 82 games and such a tight race, you may be right it costs nothing to lose a few games for business reasons.

  • LinMad

    What we Lin fans need to do is voice our opinion on Twitter and Facebook to Hornets to the point that they will think about trading Lin in December just to save their franchise’s image.

  • Briiick

    Losing a game is good, a losing streak is even better and I hope this is the beginning. Why ? Because it’s the only way to remind Cliif that he can not afford marginalizing Lin in every game, just as what had happened in Rox.

  • John Focker

    Sure, any conspiracy theory is more entertaining than a game in which Lin is handcuffed AND shackled.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If we annoy them enough they will be forced to trade Lin.

  • sws94

    DId they sit Kobe? That is a surprise.

  • cdblue10

    I don’t think it’s the league,it’s more of the politics than anything else.Coach is scared to lose the locker room for an Asian kid that’s why Lin was treated this way.

  • your son’s voltaire

    once clifford got his extension, he’s no longer thinking about winning at all cost, he’s thinking about winning without Lin

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes it’s going to take more Walker games like this before they change.

  • LinMad

    right! or force to make him the franchise player.

  • leeda harun

    Only if they learned.if they get the 8 spot is enough for hornet this year

  • webattorney

    Hard to win when Curry and Klay are hitting their shots. Splash, splash.

  • Dorothy

    How about the Kings game? Clifford almost lost it without Lin.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    im over this season already. when lin stands in the corner for roberts and daniels? what the heck is going on? dont blame the ankle either. that doesnt determine whether he’s pg or not…

    at least the homer fans get to see the real kemba… this team’s going nowhere. 8th seed if lucky….

  • sws94

    Hard to play Kemba less with Lin being injured. The Hornets put up a stinker. They aren’t good enough to beat GSW most nights, but they could have competed better. Even Marvin Williams had an off game and he’s been pretty solid and consistent. And Hasbrough should play more. He’s tough.

  • Briiick

    Agreed. What Lin fans can do is to expose them, make them pay for their misconduct.

  • JoeTeam

    you guys are just too smart. I mean nothing is as bad a it seems to fans who are not in the know.

    It us true that our boy Lin has been in the wilderness too long maybe since Harvard and then 2 mos in NY. That’s ok, he’ll sort it out.

  • joyce ward

    Hey what’s up. First off MJ has a lot of questionable business dealings and he and his father use to be big time gamblers. Those two games had too much stickiness behind the scene .

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Well done.

  • John Focker

    Lin and Psycho T should start in lieu of Zeller and Hairston, Batum back to 3.

  • JJ Hui

    Whatever happened, the truth is Curry torched and toasted Kemba to ashes, and Lin faced Curry many times before and never this bad but also won some games!

  • sws94

    He was hurting. He tried to move around but his ankle injury showed a lot in the 2nd half. He was just directing traffic from the corner, pointing to different players.

  • leeda harun

    Noo wonder a lot of team doesnt like bandwagoagon fans

  • Dan Cohen

    problem is.. NO ONE NOTICES.

  • Dan Cohen

    when curry goes to god mode.

    Lin was able to stop it from happening..
    kw just lost him.

  • LinMad
  • occupatio

    thats right, lin is injured, but either lin can play or he cant. if he is good enough to let him see the floor, then use him, instead of — for example — letting roberts handle the offense . roberts just calls his own number most of the time, and lin sits in the corner, and never even touches the ball.

    the roberts-lin lineup is one of the stupidest things ever. i hope to never see it again.

    and lin’s injury condition is good to play some minutes in the 2nd, then let him play the rest. why even bother if he sees the floor for only a few minutes of meaningful time? he literally only played like 6 minutes in the first half.

    so, yes hes injured, but either he can play or he cant. its not some in between thing. if hes not effective in that condition, then dont play him at all.

  • Dorothy

    Nope, Kobe 35 min, 10/24 and 31 pt

  • your son’s voltaire

    how the hornets play Lin is how they will land in the playoffs. if Lin is the 8th guy to come off the bench, they will be the 8th seed. if Lin is the starter, they will be in the top 5 seed

  • John Focker

    Then there’s that perennial rumor about MJ’s first retirement really being the league forcing him out due to shady practices.

  • cdblue10

    Kemba was ineffective w/ a good defensive team,he’s too short to be a PG.I hope you believe me now.

  • John Focker

    His height is one contributing factor, but the deal-breaker is Kemba’s lack of court vision and playmaking ability.

  • JoeTeam

    Hi back, nice to see you posting. Go down and see my Dell Curry story … he and his family, Seth are really nice people.

    Ah, I see you are talking about the golf gambling that we know to be documented. I wasn’t really saying that as that to me is like the fix, I was just thinking your instinct is right and it’s not able gambling but just to smooth out interlocking relationships.

    I do agree the league would like to see a rematch of GSW and CLE, because of ticket sales and TV hype.

    Me, I would love to see Steph go up against SAS. KL would step up. I am scared DGreen will get to overconfident and start to perform less – he has that kind of swaggering personality.

  • JoeTeam

    Good post!

  • InfiniteWisdom

    still doesnt explain how guys like roberts, daniels, hawes and frank LITERALLY never passed him the ball on consecutive possessions…. this season is lost….

  • Lin Win

    That’s the problem ! You’re “Glad” he made at least one.
    Back then a miss was like so rare.

  • joyce ward

    I disagree, the Jazz almost beat them last night, so they aren’t invincible. The Hornets had the advantage her because GSW was coming off a back to back. Clifford didn’t do anything to stop the bleeding even when the hornets had whittled the lead down to 9 points at half time

  • John Focker

    Robert is being generous, I give Clifford a G-.

  • Dan Cohen

    no no no..
    it’s wrong wording.. this just seems like some lin fans wants to see lin play..without any proof or justification.

    Instead of saying kw was invisble.. he should’ve said/added..

    “anyone who knows lin and watches his game against curry knows that he is one of the few in the NBA that is ABLE TO DEFEND HIM BEFORE CURRY GOES OFF TO GOD’S MODE!!”

  • Lin Win

    He has to hit those or he’s not getting any points. No one gives him any plays so he has to make shots when he’s limited!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Calling yourself Lin fan but there’s no limit for you find reason to justify Lin treatment. SMH.

  • Briiick

    Getting the 8th spot is not easy in the east this season.

  • sws94

    Did he see Lin guard Barbosa? Lin couldn’t move laterally much at all on defense. Lin just gutted out 13 minutes. This wasn’t the night to put Lin on Curry.

  • cdblue10

    He can actually pass but opted not to,he just want to score more than facilitating.If he wants to be successful he needs to watch Isiah THomas films from Detroit.

  • your son’s voltaire

    after a game like this, i like to go on twitter and read all the tweets from our trusty fans being REAL about how Lin is being mistreated

  • JoeTeam

    usage has always been a problem for Lin since MDA left the coop.

  • grover chang

    This scenario is as plausible as anything else because coach off the Cliff decisions made no basketball sense. Even if he considers Lin just a role player this game made no sense.

  • LinMad

    FO/Coach doesn’t notice. Maybe FO notices but coach is stubborn. FO needs to send some demands to Cliff.

  • Dan Cohen

    No, thats a symbol for Good minus.
    my gradiing system in school is Outstanding, Good, Satisfactory, Needs Improvement, Unsatisfatory
    it is equivalent to is A B C D F (F = Failure)

  • sws94

    He didn’t want it. They aren’t to blame. Lin stayed in the corner. Everyone else came out for it and Lin was a spectator.

  • JoeTeam

    you are right, Cliff leaving KW in with that kind of shooting night was a choice to lose.

  • leeda harun

    True.more up and down this year.

  • John Focker

  • JoeTeam

    barbosa is v good on cuts.

  • JoeTeam

    the night HOU rained 22 3s that record MJ fouled to stop. Then a few night ago GSW almost got that record. I wish HOU got that to 24 or 25.

  • joyce ward

    Exactly ,the game made no sense whatsoever. The hornets had the advantage because they were coming off a back to back. The hornets didn’t capitalize on the were only down by 9 points during halftime.

  • Rzo Vlade

    H -horrible

  • JJ Hui

    F- for lier! lol,

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin was hurt so no….

  • sport

    FO only cares about signing Batum and promoting Walker. If they cared about Lin he would’ve started since first game of the season.

  • John Focker

    J for Junk?

  • Lin Win

    Haha AtTheHive is so biased towards Kemba

    Only thing he writes about Kemba in his bad performance was

    Kemba missing the three in stride.

    While Lin gets this

  • InfiniteWisdom

    lol i dont buy this for a second. is he supposed to pull a kobe and run toawrd the ball clapping his hands for it? never gonna happen. it’s clear as day lin is being played as a spot shooter in the 2nd half. it doesnt matter who is playing, he camps…. only time he plays pg is the 2nd quarter. it has been multiple games now, definitely a trend….

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, it was. He could switched up and put batum or put lin in to help defensively. The game seemed like a big set up to me.

  • cdblue10

    Whattttt???????LOLLLLL

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t visit that side. They are not friendly to Lin’s fans. Forget about what they said…

  • Alain Gervais

  • LinMad

    let me guess, they said Lin didn’t get enough minutes today cause he’s recovering from an ankle injury. BS

  • Lin Win

    I know it’s not friendly but bias like this is hilarious!
    He’s not even trying to be subtle!

  • JoeTeam

    Hey, I saw that too, that he got one play so we believe the same thing. I am just saying it was glorious to see him make the 2nd try, and whomever passed it back to him did not have to so that in itself was a good thing.

  • JJ Hui

    You are not him and you dont know the truth unless he told you.

  • CJSHYY

    I know but that’s the way it’s. Like Harden played no D but you never saw any complain from Rox or CF bc they are not allowed to do so….Only good. smh!

  • K for Keith-Smart level lol

  • JoeTeam

    Something is wrong when Cliff does nothing to fix a player’s bad shooting night. I side with JW … Cliff didn’t want to win. To me as a fan at CLE, it also looked like Cliff took the driver and his foot off the gas when CHA had a chance.

  • LinMad
  • Singapore BB Fan

    I have a hunch; a JLin trade is in the pipeline…

  • cdblue10

    I already did my share every freakin game

  • John Focker

    Just unfollowed. Lin fans should stage a mass exodus.

  • jlim7

    This is possible, too many things cannot be explained by basketball reasons. And if Lin said Clifford is X/O coach, we shouldn’t set aside as Lin too naive, it could be Clifford really knows the game and recognize Lin’s contribution, but his hands are tied, and his extension that is early in the season may be the prove that he is cooperating with the FO / owner. Now the only question what is the Lin’s role in their planning.

  • LinMad

    better be

  • CJSHYY

    From Coach pregm interview can tell… smh!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Slowly you will find out there’s no difference between atthehive and Klutchfans.

  • John Focker

    It’d make sense. Lin marginalized since the OT win vs Kings.

  • leeda harun

    Any idea on what team?

  • cdblue10

    Did the coach even try it.Or better yet did he ask Lin to guard him tonight?LIn has no role on this team.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    no idea….

  • JoeTeam

    Give it all the the Curry family on Dell Curry night is enough of a marketing reason, given how much money is in the game today.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He said he was find.

  • sport

    Even if JLin’s on another team its questionable whether that coach will make him a starter.

  • joyce ward

    Pelicans, maybe or the Grizzles

  • cdblue10

    Or buyout his contract

  • InfiniteWisdom

    homers gon homer.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Joyce, you think so too?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin didn’t start, it was Kemba 0-12.

  • Lin Win

    Don’t worry I’m not followed. I just want to see atthehive’s reaction to Kemba’s superb performance this game.

  • jeremy

    get out
    thats not it
    so disappointed in paul

  • joyce ward

    Jru Holiday, always hurt

  • cdblue10

    Bucks.Kidd is a hard nose coach who only wants to win,doesn’t scared to lose his job and doesn’t scared to fight with his team.

  • Rzo Vlade

    clippers is my bet

  • John Focker

    Nets for Jack? Grizzlies’ Conley was shut down to ZERO points by Lin two years ago. 🙂

  • leeda harun

    Maybe fo and coach is on the same levelma

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Who the heck listen to this guy on youtube anymore?

  • Rzo Vlade

    jlin for crawford

  • LinMad

    76ers, I’d rather see 30 minutes of Lin trying than 10 minutes of Lin in corner doing nothing each game while team/coach lets the game slip away.

  • John Focker

    Lin a HUGE upgrade over MCW.

  • jlim7

    One question to you all. Is MJ a gambler?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Anywhere for me Joyce

  • cdblue10

    Definitely.

  • sport

    Not a bad idea but that’s what the Opt-out was for. Lin definitely won’t waste money to buy out his contract. Just ask for trade.

  • Rzo Vlade

    jlin for jamal crawford

  • jeremy

    not me
    but still love the guy just cant agree with him anymore

  • leeda harun

    the hornet want a rim protector..can bucks provided that.Maybe Kidd gonna get fired soon. ? So no to bucks

  • John Focker

    Then Clippers would have a shot at the title…but it’s unlikely ‘coz Austin has to shine first.

  • CJSHYY

    Any postgm interview news from Cliff?

  • occupatio

  • rookie75094

    Watching the plicans vs the rockettes in huston…there is a fat guy with no shirt on….just a red sweat pants with the words big distraction on his butt…everytime the pelicans shoot free throw…he start wiggling his fat butt……. must be clutch attending the game… hehe

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When Lin goes stand in the corner while Robert runs the offense, that’s the end of excuses for Cliff.

  • jeremy

    ish smith is doing well and Tyreke is back]
    will be hard for Lin to earn mins imo

  • joyce ward

    No, not the Clippers

  • sport

    Their GM used to work for Rockets and learned under Morey so no.

  • cdblue10

    They have an athletic frontline,they don’t have a good guard but Lin is good match on this team

  • LinMad

    its curry, not a big Kemba

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The ankle problem (may be an excuse), the lesser minutes, the isolation in the corner, no PG role (not even a backup PG)..is getting more fishy..

  • John Focker

    You forgot to take daddyball into account.

  • Lin Win

    These are all signs of a trade. They just need to find the perfect rotation without Lin and Lin is gone.

    When you are a NBA player with no role, you are just waiting for your @$$ to get traded.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    After couple times, I was done.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    it’s NOT about this game. the low minutes and corner camping is a TREND… lin has NO opportunity on this team.

  • sport

    Jrue Holiday is their starter so if he’s gone then Lin has a chance at starting PG and playing next to a team player and star PF Anthony Davis! Only if Lin gets to start of course! Star PFs work the best with star PG cause there’s no ball hogging!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    ZERO. Big man Hawes now has more outside jump shot more than Lin. That’s the end. Wait Tyler even had more..lol

  • joyce ward

    The trade deadline coming up in December,right?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes mid dec

  • sws94

    It’s a bad idea. Lin had poor movement today, especially in the 2nd half. I know he got a block but Barbosa got around him on a simple fake that Lin usually has no problem with. Lin couldn’t handle guarding someone like Curry tonight.

  • AlexBB

    We should give it a few more games before we exit Hornet media enmass

  • Dan Cohen

    you can’t.. usually that means play him more. not less.

  • cdblue10

    They will go for a big fish…Al and Lin will be in the trading block this coming Dec 15

  • jeremy

    Thanks Coach Scott
    Actually like Scott way better than Clifford

  • LinMad

    so glad this Youtube star tweeted this. He has 177k followers. Imagine if all of Lin’s youtube friends tweeted something like this. Hornets PR would be working overtime for damage control

    https://twitter.com/ajRAFAEL/status/672235390418292736

  • John Focker

    December 15 until February 18 3PM EST.

  • CJSHYY

    Do you think they will trade Lin?

  • Dan Cohen

    lin to philly! gahahahahah

  • Dan Cohen

    anklo

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He is now can’t take it?

  • sport

    Lin chose his own path and tried his own ideal way and failed. So I hope if he does get traded he will finally give up on those ideals and just look to score and have fun instead of fitting in!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not the reason.

  • Timmy Ha

    Trade deadline is actually February 19th

  • John Focker

    That’s stretching it. Clifford has not thrown Lin under the bus.

  • CJSHYY

    Interesting about this …. what the agenda is this time?

  • cdblue10

    Friends are talking.Lin is voicing out his discontent.

  • Dorothy

    No, Clifford is devalue Lin, instead of pad Lin stats…

  • sws94

    These people are embarrassing themselves. Lin gutted out 13 minutes. That’s what they are saying in the Hornets forums, he was visibly hurt trying to walk around. We should have only expected about 10-15 minutes with his ankle like it was tonight.

  • joyce ward

    Don’t forget, they were selling lin’s jersey for discount on cyber Mondaym

  • Singapore BB Fan

    all I think of is the differences between Cliff and JLin…Cliff did not keep his promises.

  • LinMad

    damage control

  • sport

    Nope but actions are no different from BS.

  • Lin Win

    Yeah ! He gave up Linsanity for this. He needs to embrace Linsanity and play the superstar system.

  • heart

    Congrats to GSW 20th wins came at the expense of Hornets. Hornets don’t deserve Lin. The bar is reaching the 20th game mark people… Is Cliff still trying out other line ups??? Someone was saying that…

  • Rzo Vlade

    trade

  • sport

    I hope they trade Lin before Christmas and not on Christmas Eve/Day!

  • cdblue10

    He is a close family friend of Lin.Don’t you think Lin doesn’t verbalized his situations w/ them?

  • sws94

    You think Lin is faking an injury?

  • Rzo Vlade

    yes pls trade dec 12

  • CJSHYY

    What do you think about this statement from Lin’s friend? I think he means after OT…what the agenda is this time?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin needs to do himself a favor, make excuse to sit out the next 5 games, Hornets will go under .500.

  • sws94

    This is not the night to worry about Lin’s minutes. It’s the night to hope he heals fast and gets back to himself.

  • jeremy

    Well coach scott gave him more minutes and more plays were drawn for him

  • John Focker

    If Hornets trade Lin, the ingrates WILL fall out of playoff contention. Called it.

  • Rzo Vlade

    aj is his friend he smell something

  • LinMad

    I think Hornets media is blowing it up so they don’t have to play Lin. Even if he is hurt, at least we need to voice out for the low minutes he gets in other games where he is healthy. We are not embarrassing ourselves. We are standing up for Lin.

  • I agree.

    After the huge Kings OT game, tt’s been 3 games of short leash due to PF, TO, not scoring.
    Then supposedly an ankle-injury game.

    I want to hear more about what JLin said.
    Last season, he mentioned about getting opportunities to hit last-second shots.
    He’ll give a hint if he’s treated unfairly after that Game 14 vs Kings

  • John Focker

    Trade can’t start ’till Dec 15.

  • jeremy

    think she meant the earliest Lin can be traded

  • LinMad

    So he can get another 15 minute game and be last in, first out like every other night? Also last to touch the ball too. Give me a break, he is being marginalized. You are ignoring the other games huh?

  • Rzo Vlade

    AJ already voice displeasure theres something fishy when jlin friends react you know something is not right

  • cdblue10

    Ok sws I will be the first person to apologized to you if they changed Lin’s role on this team

  • occupatio

    he shouldnt have played at all in that case. i just dont understand cliff playing him ineffectual minutes.

  • joyce ward

    They don’t want playoff contention because I truly believe MJ knows he has mediocre players who are not championship material

  • jeremy

    agreed

  • sport

    They barely play him any minutes, writing is on the wall! So much for “Cliff understands my style, playing along side Walker, blah blah blah. Lin got lied to again!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I think you’re embarrassing yourself. Look at how he’s used. Why did they play him when the game was out of touch?

  • jeremy

    all i hear is lies lies liessss

  • John Focker

    But it’s not like Hornets have protected picks or any other motive to tank…weird.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Because that’s his new role and rotation.

  • joyce ward

    I think Clifford was trying to quiet down the masses.LOL

  • CJSHYY

    Only Lin?

  • PrimeTime

    Dirk and Duncan didn’t battle injuries that ended their seasons. Try and think logically for once instead of being a hater.

  • occupatio

    well, this riles ppl up even more.

  • PrimeTime

    Garnett is a shell of himself. Stop embarrassing yourself with foolish statements.

  • sport

    Lin needed final cruel wake up call! If Lin believes in GOD, all these challenges is telling him to give up teamball and look after himself first to be a star. When he finally becomes a franchise player then he can go for his ideal teamball!

  • LinMad

    Hornets will be sub .500 soon even if Lin stays cause this coach has been marginalizing Lin and team chemistry looks bad already.

  • John Focker

    Deja vu…Lakers did the same with Linsanity DVD + other merchandise.

  • PrimeTime

    I’m embarrassed that as a woman of color you sit here and spew conspiracy theories and delusions about Lin as his fan base disrespect your race daily. You are a disgrace.

  • joyce ward

    Well they plastered lin’s face all over their website

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I hope the Hornet will trade lin for the future 2nd round pick.

  • John Focker

    Smarter Hornets fans were already questioning why not preseason lineup/form?

  • Dorothy

    if Hornets want to trade Lin they will let Lin pad his stats, just saying…

  • PrimeTime

    So you just said Kobe hasn’t aged gracefully when he has major injuries that ended his seasons yet you’re using a sore ankle as a reason for Lin not being a good player today when he’s never a good player. When does reality set in for you all?

  • sws94

    It’s the athlete’s mentality. They go in there and try to help a team win in a big game. That’s looked on positively by their team mates. Lin didn’t do that bad the first half. He just had next to nothing in the second half.

  • John Focker

    And get Kwame 2.0 for it.

  • CJSHYY

    He’s Lin’s good friend & they even travel together this summer. He sure knows more than any of us here.

  • jeremy

    Or is it possible that they are trying to trade kemba lol
    hes been playing heavy minutes as of late…

  • leeda harun

    still waiting for 30 games

  • Briiick

    If Hornets know what they are doing, they wouldn’t have been called one of the worst managed organizations.

  • occupatio

    keep dreaming.

  • CJSHYY

    No…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    then 40.

  • heart

    Cliff does NOT know how or have the Offense/Defense acumen. He’s reverting to his old style of coaching w/ new players. A guy on twitter attests to this fact. He only depends on one or two key guys. The offense does not spread out like his talks in pre-season.

  • sws94

    HIs role isn’t that bad. It’s just the conditions for him to really get going havent’ been there. If Kemba continues to revert back to bad Kemba and Lin heats up, Kemba’s minutes go down to regular, like 34 and Lin’s go up. But the roles won’t change. Lin is PG for the 2nd unit only. With Kemba, he is something like a 2nd Batum and Kemba has to either pass him the ball, or when Nic gets it, Lin goes out to Nic and is ready to handle the ball, shoot it or pass it but don’t camp in the corner.

  • leeda harun

    mj is not smart too. ?.lol. maybe they want kw and batum as allstars only

  • jeremy

    its a joke smh

  • leeda harun

    ha ha…let us wait..only than we know the direction of this team

  • jeremy

    then 50

  • sws94

    When he gets healthy and has a good game, let’s see what happens. Tonight’s game was a bad performance by the team. It wasn’t a regular game. Roberts, Tyler and Daniels played in it.

  • cdblue10

    He’s not even a PG or SG now.

  • sport

    Lin’s barely PG for 2nd unit! Especially this game it’s everyone else as PG over him! Not to meantion before this injury he was always the last to come off the bench play a bit of 2nd quarter and 4th quarter while benched entirely in 1st and 3rd quarter!

  • joyce ward

    I am beginning to believe lin will be traded, He has a very cheap contract and I know the Grizzles, Bulls wanted him.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    1st half pg, 2nd half corner camping. not 1 game, not 2, not 3… it’s a trend.

  • Rzo Vlade

    yes pls bulls

  • Love Lin

    He smells fishy going on here. Lins time n usage hv been changed after Cliff signs the long contract. Aj dares 2 speak out the truth..

  • sws94

    Standing up for him is good. Not seeing he isn’t moving his best and can’t play like he usually does and wanting more minutes for him doesn’t make much sense.

  • jlim7

    It’s not Cliff, it is FO or MJ. Coach’s early extension means a reward because obeying FO / MJ.

  • LinMad

    well he better be traded cause Lin fans are making Hornets look really bad now. It’s ashame cause we could have been making Hornets look really good if Lin wasn’t being marginalized.

  • cdblue10

    Don’t count out the Bucks

  • John Focker

    It would explain the trend of diminishing utilization (to develop Roberts/Lamb) after Lin got some attention in OT win vs. Kings.

  • sws94

    He’s PG for the 2nd unit. Once Kemba goes out Lin is PG. Tonight Roberts played PG but Roberts rarely plays.

  • Alain Gervais

    There has been 4 years now and every year by this point people go nut pointing at reason Lin will be traded which never happens. Ive seen this before. Lin says away from the ball and almost stops shooting this also has happen before. Team mates stop looking for Lin another thing that has happened. This play is replaying it self over and over again. Lin as a star and starter is slowly being killed off. H*** even him as superb six man is dying slowly. I honestly cant complain. Lin choose this team. I don’t think him choosing another team will help.

  • John Focker

    True. It was unusual that Kidd walked to Lin for an exchange.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Maybe the PR will say something like this; “An offer JLin cannot resist”

  • occupatio

    thats a fair explanation.

  • Dorothy

    OK, it is possible that they signed Lin, let Lin play heavy minutes in preseason to boost price for Aisan broadcasting rights, now try to trade Lin to get picks because they know Lin will not come back next year.

  • cdblue10

    You saw that too…you have a sharp eyes

  • sws94

    And I think some of it is his fault. No one else was corner camping like Lin was. He didn’t go out aggressively and meet the ball. But tonight was a good idea he shouldn’t. Other nights, he can go out more. Someone on the Hornets thread said he did this in Houston, Lakers and now Charlotte. What’s the one constant there?

  • PrimeTime

    13 minutes. 5 points. Who we blaming today? All aboard we’re headed to DELUSIONALVILLE!

  • joyce ward

    Hornets need a rim protector.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s hard to impossible to trade a poison contract then. Now $2 mil and they know for sure he won’t come back, very possible.

  • PrimeTime

    No team wants him and his toxic fans. I don’t see why you’re so obsessed with him.

  • sport

    They may be “coach’s orders” but Lin can say whatever and go ask for the ball! He’s already getting between 15-18 mins worst than Lakers! He’s got nothing to lose and everything to lose in his career now being pushed to the edge!

  • Alain Gervais

    They won’t trade him. They got a bargain to begin with

  • PrimeTime

    lol. Delusional.

  • cdblue10

    BUt as a smart person,he knows that his career is slowly going down the drain at this point.

  • joyce ward

    You make no sense???

  • heart

    Yep. I know All of them are culprits. But to put trust and extend a coach w/low IQ in Offense/Defense is very poor judgement indeed.

  • Lin Win

    This guy takes the cake. I guess you need to be a Kemba fan to not get banned from attheHive. This guy had to learn it the hard way.

  • Alain Gervais

    Just look at the stats and minutes. They will clearly show it

  • leeda harun

    true.so which team can give that to the hornet?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This kind of use for Lin worthless and if they see something good on the table , almost everyone is tradable.

  • I thought of that remote possibility

    But if true, this game might derail that plan.
    They’d need JLin to keep passing to Kemba to make it happen.
    And they shouldn’t minimize JLin’s minutes

  • Briiick

    I hope so. If I am the manager of a team trying to clean space to offer Lin a starting PG job next season, I would definitely jump in the opportunity of trading for Lin now to lower the risk of running into a situation of Rondo in Mav or Lawson in Rox.

  • PrimeTime

    They need to get rid of Lin, useless tbh

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Show that cdblue10 is right?

  • Alain Gervais

    They got lin cheap tp begin with why trad him for what?? 2 mill for Lin is a steal. Like me getting a 2000 dollar tv for 900 why would i sell it. Especially when I’ve lowered The value of the tv.

  • sws94

    Again. No one else on the team camps in the corner. Not Kemba, Batum, Marvin, or even the reserves. Not even Daniels. It isn’t practical to think that Clifford is telling him to stand in the corner and don’t move. That really isn’t practical. Lin does this now for 3 teams. And really, in some games he doesn’t and goes to the ball. It’s his choice. Lin needs to move off ball like crazy when he gets better.

  • LinMad

    5 points on 2 shots. Doesn’t matter how many minutes Lin gets, if he don’t get the ball cause of Kemba, Batum, Roberts and Daniels being a better option than Lin, it’s coach’s fault.

  • Briiick

    I guess they wanted to trade Lin the moment they offered Lamb.

  • Dorothy

    another Troll? Flagged

  • sport

    Why do you think Wizards kicked him off the board? We’ve seen so many times how great players don’t know how to manage nor coach a team! Hornets has been bad these many years because MJ’s the owner. i thought they truly wanted Lin as starter but I was so wrong they’d rather hype up Batum and continue to promote Walker who will never be a star nor bring them a ring. In recent games they would rather lose than allow Lin to save the team!

  • leeda harun

    so try to enjoy every minutes lin play even though it is hard…

  • MEL LIN

    saw that too

  • LinMad

    2-16 Kemba. 1-2 Lin.

    Lin last option for shooting. Kemba 1st option. Nuff Said.

  • Lin Win

    Not even crying lol I find this hilarious.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    do you see marv going out to meet the ball? no. lin plays just like him, a catch n shoot floor spacer. when playing with kemba and batum/lamb he plays like a 3. this has been obvious. he doesnt touch the ball he’s just there as a floor spacer.

  • LinMad

    4 points from Kemba is impressive.

  • leeda harun

    maybe just friendly talk.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If you buy a house 50% under market value and someone make you an offer to a full value of that house, most likely you will sell if you’re a business man. Knowingly if you don’t next year you lose the house for nothing. Lin is leaving.

  • james brown

    good for JLIn now that others are doing this…we waited for cliffs action but right now, he can’t even use the word experimenting, otherwise he’s not a good coach.

  • CJSHYY

    I know don’t look like …. I guess just Lin & Cliff still don’t get along well.

  • joyce ward

    They are looking for a rim protector. They aren’t looking for some superstar. They probably have somebody already in mind that’s cheap.

  • cdblue10

    I am,but on the last 4 games it’s hard to enjoy it because of his usage

  • james brown

    JLIN and Aj are talking and Aj couldn’t stomach what JLin can.

  • leeda harun

    grizzlies got chalmers already only bulls is the last hope

  • sport

    Face the fact that it is racism and politics!

  • Dorothy

    Troll Alert and Flagged

  • LinMad

    are u celebrating about the Lakers win today by trolling us? Feel free to trash the hornets more. We actually don’t care.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin would have to be thrown in there with an AL and/ or Zeller who don’t fit there system

  • InfiniteWisdom

    marv doesnt camp? he handles the ball? seriously? and lamb, when playing with kemba and batum, he doesnt camp?

  • leeda harun

    be patient. You dont think jlin got a lot of pressure too

  • John Focker

    Flagged…

  • sws94

    That’s not entirely true. Lin and Batum have engaged in a lot of give and go’s when Lin cuts. And win goes out to the ball, he gets it and that enabled him to make some plays, like in that one game where he made the behind the back feed to Al off the dribble. Lin can space the floor sometimes, but if he sees the ball always on one side of the floor, he needs to aggressively go out and get it. that’s what Batum and Kemba does and I do NOT think it is the coach’s orders for Lin not to get the ball.

  • Andrew Ho

    Like a poster said below, this is happening again…4 years, same story. I definitely think external factors such as team members, coaches, front office, league politics have a big hand in it…but Lin is part of the story himself too…there’s gotta be something he himself is or isn’t doing that’s playing a part in him being marginalized…Rocky Balboa says it best:

    https://youtu.be/D_Vg4uyYwEk

  • leeda harun

    It is not in his blood.

  • LinMad

    only thing I can think of is that he’s asian

  • joyce ward

    Probably how it will go down. lin had several times that wanted him for more money, but he chose charlotte because of clifford.

  • james brown

    then , they should just placed JLIn in an injured list so he can rest and thats acceptable. and we know that JLIN regular time with hornets is 15 to 20 minutes max.
    cliff mentioned during the pre game that he hoped to give JLIN his regular time…Got it..he DID.

  • Lin Win

    Thanks mods for the quick ban!

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin is the only guy playing team ball that’s his problem. no team other than the GSW and Spurs play team ball. he has to change his approach

  • sws94

    Lamb doesn’t stay in the corner, he moves to get the ball and that’s why he gets it. Marvin moves in and out, he doesn’t always just stay there and watch the action on one side of the court. There are times they should move the ball to the weak side but if they don’t, Lin has to get it. During the whole preseason he moved off ball mostly, regardless of who he played with.

  • John Focker

    Who’s our MVP tonight? LOL

  • Lin Win

    Starts with R and A!

  • james brown

    roberts..look at the way his playing during first half..camping also on the corner when KW and Batum’s in..pls watch.

  • cdblue10

    He just need to make a decision and get out from this messed,it’s a good thing that he has only 2 mil at the table.His situation in this team is horrible compared to Houston.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin doesn’t blame anyone, us fans spoke out for this dirty business. Lin’s still out there fighting.

  • james brown

    Lamb and roberts again..when KW and Batum are in. watch

  • MorlockO

    maybe the contract has some under handed agreements… 1. play kemba more and to never bench kemba ever again… 2 make sure that kemba is no.1 ball handler and batum is no.2.

  • Another troll has been banned.
    This is quite concerning.

    Let me reiterate my suggestion:

    But I would encourage true Lin fans to be respectful to other basketball fans in many forums.
    That way we create more friends for JLin than enemies. That’s a big way to support JLin.
    Thank you

    Please don’t visit Lakers forums to mock them.
    You never know if post-Kobe era, there might be invitations for JLin to be a Laker again.
    Let’s not burn bridges with Lakers fans

  • InfiniteWisdom

    it is. ball handlers dont stand on the wing like that. he’s floor spacing. it’s OBVIOUS. also notice he NEVER floor spaces in the 2nd quarter. he’s always the pg with lamb the sg. but once the 4th q comes along, cliff cannot help himself and plays kemba. this makes kemba the 1, lamb the 2, and lin the floor spacing 3. how on earth can he call for the ball when his role is that of a floor spacer?

  • Alain Gervais

    which is why I’ve lost hope. He choose this. Its just crazy. There will never be another dantoni. Lins best year maybe behind him. Its kinda depressing but i watch anyway. I still believe for some reason his talent will overcome this

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sitting back is just something everyone needs once in a while.

  • John Focker

    The service here is TOP-NOTCH! 🙂

  • heart

    Why question Lin? Lin is doing everything possible to improve himself and show his worth if given opportunity, but the opportunity is NOT afforded to him. This time, the Hornets blatantly mislead him to believe that he can revive his career w/ them by giving him a bigger role and minutes to show his worth. He gave up big $ for to play his game. So far, they have gone back on their words.

  • your son’s voltaire

    but who can they get for Lin who is so productive and skilled at $2 Mil? i don’t think Cho will trade Lin just because Clifford doesn’t know how to use him correctly. may have to ride the pine the rest of the year

  • james brown

    that’s it..marv sometimes is involved with the play that’s why he moves..3 players are involve..center SG if batum is in and KW…the rest make space…to other who comments pleas watch the game and see how the plays progresses…it is easier said to just move if you don’t know how to play ball. JLIn knew that spacing is needed that’s why he’s so conscious out there over floor spacing because he wants to win games

  • Andrew Ho

    Yep. I admire his team ball mentality but it’s wasted if the team isn’t playing along. IMO it’s wasted effort and at the same time causes emotional stress. Like with all workplaces (and the NBA is no different), there is a “game” being played. Usually and unfortunately, it’s not the diligent, obedient hard worker who gets the raise and promotion…it’s the guy/gal who knows how the system works and positions accordingly (and I don’t mean basketball positions or system!)

  • CJSHYY

    Bc these players are all set up for O not Lin. Cliff only wants him to do well in D. Lance said he stood in 3P corner too.

  • sport

    Not only that but his ideal and insist on playing teamball and passing when he should look to score and take at least 13-15 shots per game!

  • your son’s voltaire

    true. he’s got a lot to learn about the real world but he won’t go against it because it’s like going against his faith and everything he believes in. it’s like an internal struggle

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Bc Lin, Roberts, & Lance all do the same as Cliff request… others are all set up for play… of course they don’t need to stand in corner.

  • Acbc

    Raptors game was much more fun again. Came back from 15 deficit at half time to win by 10 against the Hawks.

  • sws94

    I don’t think that’s always the case in every play. Because why would he be able to have the same guys on the floor and get the ball and facilitate when he does? Lin goes to the corner if Lamb is in or not. I think it is more as I said, the one constant in 3 teams is LIn. It’s become a tendency.

  • LinMad

    i have not posted on any other basketball sites since yesterday and I don’t plan to in the future.

  • james brown

    good basketball analysis…
    unlike others who just say get the ball, be aggressive, shoot the ball, or make a shot ..as if it is easy to be done?
    some kept on arguing the coach is doing his best..i believed so but his decision are a little bit head scratching, but its his decision and team will live and die with it..so , maybe they will often die because of their stubborness

  • John Focker

    A scary random thought just crossed my mind: I have a B.S. (Bach. Sci.) in B.S. (Bio Sci).

    Does this make me related to BS?!

  • CJSHYY

    Lamb is their #1 option from 2nd unit of course he didn’t need to stand in corner.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    when lamb plays with kemba and batum he’s invisible. marv moves to set picks when he’s the stretch 4. he doesnt go up top and ask for the ball, making plays. when he plays with the 2nd unit he camps as a floor spacer. in the preseason they ran plays for lin. now? all the plays are being run for lamb. lin can’t just willy nilly run to the ball and demand it.

  • Acbc

    No it just means your degree is full of it. Lol

  • sws94

    You know what I think. If he goes to another team watch the same thing happen. Then who’s fault is it? Sometimes players develop tendencies. It’s very odd that 3 coaches would do the same thing for Lin. It’s not odd to go into the corner. It’s odd for a player of Lin’s skills to stay in the corner. It’s not like he’s known for his 3 point shooting. He’s known for his penetration. So why wouldn’t a good Coach utilize that?

  • james brown

    nice analysis again!

  • Alain Gervais

    I have no choice but to agree. Its either that or racism. It could be both.

  • Andrew Ho

    Sigh. I’m pretty sure it is one of the causes of his inner conflict. Making him think too much, and therefore affecting his play and decision-making on court as well.

  • sws94

    He started off that way tonight and then what? He got a 3, hit a shot inside, got the ball in several places and scored. He didn’t disappear. It just took time for him to figure out how to get the ball. Lin can be more aggressive at getting the ball. That’s my point.

  • Alain Gervais

    I agree with that as well. Selfishness is rewarded

  • heart

    Funny… I just of thought of this after you said that: Cliff the BS. Not you, the Hornets…

  • Alain Gervais

    At this rate he is losing and 6 rounds have gone by

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    I’ll consider this game as a good game since he really didn’t see the ball much…and when he played, Cliff had him standing in the corner not doing much.

    The good news out of this is, Lin made his shots and got 3 assist…Too bad he missed 2 free throw and got one turnover from a charge.

    I’ve officially given up on Lin getting enough minutes to get good statistics…so now, I’m just hoping for good efficiency…If he only take 4 shots, let’s hope he makes 2…and let’s hope he doesn’t turn the ball over and try to get as many assist in few minutes.

    We will not see many 20+point game with Charlotte…Hope I’m wrong, but on this team, he has less room to operate as oppose to when he was with the Lakers…Sad but true.

    Hopefully, if he increase his FG% AND 3POINT% so that he’ll be able to get a better team next year.

  • CJSHYY

    I read some Lin’s fans went to Lakers Nations to say something so…. I really think we should not make more enemies for Lin…. He maybe will back to Lakers next year.

  • sws94

    This is the coach is always setting up Lin to fail nonsense that doesn’t help Lin. If Lin can improve on making himself part of the flow of the offense, and he does at times, then he can have a bigger impact. Lin is not being set up to fail by Clifford. I don’t believe that. I think he just is seeing stuff happens and if it works then coming back and focussing on D. When the O isn’t working, then Lin asserts himself. That’s been the pattern I’ve noticed. Or he just decides to assert himself, like in the King’s game OT. He was on the floor with Kemba then and he decided to make things happen and get the ball in different places. When he did that, Batum looked for him.

  • John Focker

    The charge was a bad call, defender was still moving. Even Warriors’ announcers said as much.

  • Dorothy

    Psalm, please check your email. Thanks.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Roberts 19:52 minutes

  • james brown

    3 coaches…Mchale – Jlin was PG who after giving the ball to harden stands at the corner because he knew harden will shoot the ball no matter what.
    BS- who let Kobe his PG and SG when he’s in, then replaces jlin with clarkson who becomes a SG-PG just like Kobe.
    cliff- KW and Batum is the saviour!

  • cdblue10

    This is the real life.In real world you need fight and scratch in every inch of success.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    In the 2nd half, did you see Cliff yelled and argued with refs when Batum drew an offensive foul and Kemba drew a 3 point foul on Curry? But he turned his back and looked away when Lin drew a charge in the 2Q.

  • spiderman

    If hornets want to trade Lin for more wins, good luck!

    Curse of teams that do not recognize talent when they have it

  • Pete Roces

    He was told to camp at the corner, no play was designed for him, even if he is aggressive and meet the ball, no one will pass it to him, its all on coach…..keep defending hornets!

  • Andrew Ho

    Yep. I know Lin looks up to Nash, who said that he always tried to play the right way by setting up team members and then looking to score later…BUT…Nash was the freakin featured star of the team and had LOTS of minute to do both…Lin is not the featured player and doesn’t have the TIME on court to do that…like other posters have said, he needs to establish himself first as a featured player, then he can start being generous!

  • LinMad

    I’ve concluded that Charlotte is not going to be Lin’s home. If it was, Cliff would have treated Lin more like Kemba or Batum or even Frank now. Frank is a rookie but he’s getting more chances than Lin himself.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    NO! the kings doubled kemba because he went off in the 4th quarter. he had to give up the ball. that’s the only reason lin got touches.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Preseason games were the best lineup and usage.

  • sws94

    Always someone else. Won’t fly after awhile. But I’ve got no more to say here. I hope Lin and the team figures it out. I want Lin to succeed on this team.

  • Alain Gervais

    That was before they paid Lamb. He became the new 6th man

  • CJSHYY

    I think Al probably will be traded so AS coach said Frank will get more min as season go on….

  • cdblue10

    After the Kings game in OT something have changed from management and coaching staff

  • MEL LIN

    Headline:

    Jeremy Lin Hornets Star requesting for a trade as reported CJ watson- At the Hive

  • Pete Roces

    Don’t buy Hornets merchandise. Unfollow all Hornets related twitter account, don’t watch live game, wait till Dec 15 and see what happens…..

  • sws94

    Then something is wrong with Kemba if he doesn’t utilize Lin better. But, if you’ve given up hope on Charlotte. OK. I haven’t. I want Lin to succeed and I think he needs to be more assertive sometimes. Not always, sometimes.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Glad you saw that, but it’s just one.

  • CJSHYY

    For real?

  • Alain Gervais

    I also Notice Cliff playing Kemba with Lin more which has turn Lin into a spot up three player. He gets maybe 4-5 minutes at Pg a game

  • heart

    good advice.

  • Love Lin

    It only lived for 3-4 games.. smh..

  • cdblue10

    Al already knew that he’ll get traded,he just doesn’t show it.

  • xeroid

    Why is Portal getting as bad as the other forum? Even got trolls coming regularly to bash Lin. Why all the fuss when Lin was with ankle injury and wasn’t sure to play? The ankle injury obviously was affecting his mobility, will we be happy for Lin to play 30 minutes and sit for the next 3 weeks due to aggravating ankle? Lin did ok tonight, shooting 1/2 with 5 points, unlike Walker who got 2/16 for 4 points, and Curry drive by him regularly forcing him to back off and then light up all the 3 pointers, or Brian Roberts, when he came in and made 2 shots for 5 points, and winded up 2/7 for the same 5 points, and all those so called fans worrying he’ll takeover the backup PG. Coach Clifford’s job is to win games for Hornets, not baby sit Lin. He’s the one who knows the physical condition and injuries. Lin will be all right, he’ll probably come out and score 20 points next game and all those so called fans will be pushing for starting job again.

  • LinMad

    link?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The danger for their agendas started in game Kemba was benched in the 4Q.

  • james brown

    that’s correct and cliff saw that KW couldn’t handle the job so he made a play with JLIn and Lin knowing its his time to do things as he did before made , changed gear

  • CJSHYY

    Every time when Kemba played more min w Lin that game Lin only could get 4 to 5 min as PG. smh!

  • sws94

    And did you see him score and go out to get the ball. He wasn’t stationary for as long as Lin tends to be. But again, I think Lin can do well on this team if Lin does some things differently and if the team looks for him. Takes both. But Lin has to do some things differently too. And I always say, fix what you can fix. You can’t change others, but you can change yourself.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Best advice.

  • Andrew Ho

    I’m not trying to say he himself is blaming others…my point is imo there is something he isn’t doing which is contributing to his marginalization….which is again imo he needs to look out for himself on the court more… agree he is doing a lot already…I just think he needs to be more ‘selfish’ on the court and get his first

  • Alain Gervais

    Not real

  • Yascar

    It’s probably both. I mean, following the game thread, it’s like deja vu. Jeremy camping out in the corner. We’ve had this for four years. People forget sometimes that it was this bad, arguably worse, in his previous teams.

    I agree there is politics, hate, coaches playing favorites. All of the above and probably more. But the jury is out with me as to whether changing teams is the answer. I don’t know what the answer is but it seems to me the ball is at least partially in his court. He needs to take it with both hands and shoot. Literally and figuratively.

    At some point, Jeremy has to find a way to be a key contributor to any team he is on. He is in the upper 1% of the world’s pro basketball players just by setting foot in an NBA court. He’s come this far. I still have faith – not in the NBA but on Lin and the God that has carried him this far.

  • cdblue10

    That one too.

  • sws94

    Lin struggled guarding Barbosa. Why would you put Lin on Curry of all people with his ankle hurting. Friend or not, this tweet shows bad judgment. It’s not the night for LIn to guard Curry.

  • Alain Gervais

    Although i wish Lin had this in him. As much kobe can get on my nerve i was Lin had some of Kobe idgaf attitude.

  • guest

    I agree!

  • LinMad

    not even a spot up 3 player. A stand and watch player cause Batum or Kemba will shoot. If not them, Zeller or someone else will take it before Lin.

  • heart

    I think so too. Cliff did say that FK will be integrated into rotation every game which means more PT for him and possibly starting at Center eventually.

  • LinMad

    lol Cliff’s post game interview has volume issues. Can’t even hear him. Maybe disguising something.

  • james brown

    good that you finally sees it..KW when with JLIN and batum seldom pass the ball to Lin except when he’s in a bind or has no open shot. look at how KW made those TO of his and you will see that he’s not really into passing the ball when his mind was already made up to take the shot.

  • Alain Gervais

    He is still relatively young

  • Andrew Ho

    sorry if my post was a bit unclear…not trying to say he himself is blaming others. Trying to point out imo there is something he isn’t doing which is playing a part. Which imo is that he needs to be more ‘selfish’ on the court.

  • CJSHYY

    Lin was playing well. Was marginalized. Ankle sprain is blown up for damage control by Hornets.

  • Pete Roces

    why listen to all the bs stuff when you already know that he is a liar….

  • james brown

    watch JLIN’s game during the pre-season..and what happened during the regular season..whats the difference, JLIN played a lot during Pre and got only minimal amount of time during regular season. Confidence level during pre=season from cliff was high on Lin, but changed and was given back to KW.
    sure KW is the franchise, but can’t the coach help both players by giving them both encouragement?

  • MEL LIN

    If I were lin I will sit on the floor and read a newspaper

  • cdblue10

    I just say what I see and nothing’s wrong with that.Same as you.

  • got it, thanks!

  • InfiniteWisdom

    NO! you cannot explain the STARK difference in how he plays 2nd q vs 4th q. in the 2nd he is the de facto pg and ball handler. lamb is the de facto sg. in the 4th q if he plays with kemba and lamb as he has these past few games, he is a floor spacer. lamb is the de facto sg. just look at the plays. kemba is up top, lamb is on the weak side wing. lin is either in the weak side corner or strong side wing. so unless they run a triangle style play, the strong side wing is simply a floor spacer. when they run motion strong, LAMB is the recipient.

    of note is that when lin plays with batum and lamb, lin is the pg. but we hardly see this lineup. kemba has been getting 40 min a night starting the 4th q…

  • CJSHYY

    What did he say?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Today game was one of many to come plus his ankle didn’t happen in the past 3 games.

  • LinMad

    rebounds blah blah blah i dont care

  • CJSHYY

    BS as usual. smh!

  • heart

    Really… Sickening… I wish Lin would stop taking charges for Hornets. Not worth for any team unless they treat him right.

  • MEL LIN

    We do hate you very much thank you and we are happy that your career is over finally.

  • LinMad

    haha he should smuggle a newspaper under his jersey and pull it out one game and start reading it during offense.

  • I also still give the benefit of the doubt on JLin being limited due to ankle injury.
    It’s only 4 games ago that JLin got to be the hero in the Kings OT win.

    Only if JLin started hinting of the unfairness like last year that I’d start to be concerned.

  • David Kim

    This highlight rockets vs warriors more fun to watch. After watching this highlights,I am little concerned how Lin is used in hornets team.

    http://youtu.be/e-oo_0_-nwE

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Probably Kemba shot 50% today in the 2nd half, that’s very good.

  • LinMad

    Conspiracy: Hornets put Kemba on Curry to make Dell Curry happy. It’s Dell Curry Night.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    it’s not necessarily kemba. i have no qualms about how lin plays in the 2nd q. he is pg, lamb is sg, the bench plays great usually. bench force one. the problem is cliff using kemba to sart the 4th q. this messes everything up. lamb gets less touches cuz kemba loves to call his owm number, lin gets turned into a 3&d player. why cant cliff leave the bench alone and play the beginning of the 4th q? then lin or lamb finishes the game with the starters? this is what they did earlier in the season… but now kemba is getting 40 mins? what the heck? the losses will mount vs good teams and this crappy rotation.

  • Dorothy

    Yes, sitting at the corner where he usually stands and waits for 3. that will be epic

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! I think so too. I guess they got the deal for Al to go that’s why he needs to take a rest for 2 to 3 weeks…?? I also think Zeller maybe also the target bc they just keep promoting him ….

    Another one bites the dust!
    It’s final ! AtTheHive is an Anti-Lin Fan site.
    This guy did nothing wrong but critisized the writer by calling him pathetic. Yet in the gamethread we can see multiple insults to other fans yet it’s justified.

  • james brown

    not saying its the other person whose at fault..you gave a reason that JLIN was with 3 other coach and maybe he’s at fault because he’s the common denominator on those occassions. I did just mentioned the obvious on what ha happened with those other 2 coaches and not to justify anything….

    i see the valor on believing that Hornets team with cliff as the captain are doing their job catering to all players, but I call on cliff on the things that he’s actually been doing is just as valid as your belief. we don’t ask you to change your stand but just showing you how vulnerable your stand is right now.

  • james brown

    2 occassion when the other player was in a bind…so he scored 4 points in the first half as i watched it..and how many shot did KW made? 9 or 12 with ZERO points made..so how many attemp made by roberts 2 while KW attempt let us say 10 shots in 10 plays.

    Roberst is a SG in a body os a PG and we all know he loved to shoot. Just saying..

  • Pete Roces

    Damn… Lin in Rox is heaven and earth from Lin in Hornets and considering he is being marginalized in Rox.

  • james brown

    his argument that no one was camping is now falling so fast and he should stop saying things because others are also watching the game..maybe it will apply to those who has no chance watching the game..that will be believable to them.

  • Andrew Ho

    Yep. I think a better way to protest if you want to, is to unfollow hornets related social media accounts…but do it without ANNOUNCING to the whole world to do it e.g. don’t post on twitter “LETS UNFOLLOW HORNETS ACCOUNTS! Otherwise it will just have the same effect as posting insults or disrespectfully, and reinforce their dislike.

  • occupatio

    i dont know why anyone bothers going to this site. the quality of a site is very much shaped by the quality of the staff. bad staff, bad site. its that simple. anyone who goes there and then gets upset about what happens, frankly, deserves it.

  • heart

    If you’ve been following Lin for a while, you’d know Lin’s character. Being ‘selfish on court’ is not how he wants to play. He’s being true to himself, playing team ball. Moreover, Lin follows the Coach’s instruction to the Ts. When you see him standing in the corner, it’s for floor spacing and that’s w/in Coach’s game plan/instruction. I saw him a couple of times in previous games when he still had minutes, he was vocal and clapped his hand to demand the ball. But lately, there’s an obvious change in Cliff’s priority for Lin. Lin is not getting minutes, screens or set plays, nada… Basically, he’s being jerked around. His teammates know this and ignore him as well. It’s a sad and upsetting turn of event, really…

  • james brown

    that’s why Jlin declared an injury, on Kidd’s advise..LOL!

  • occupatio

    there are ppl like that in every group. including lin fans. people are people.

  • The criticism is valid but unfortunately calling the writer ‘pathetic’ seemed to be the stumbling block.

    My suggestion is to always convey constructive criticism while being careful to be respectful so they can focus on the subjectivity of the tweets.

    It’s definitely harsh to ban without warning for being ‘rude’.
    If it’s clearly trolling and making fun of things/posters, that’s different and deserves banning.
    But I can’t say how they moderate in other sites.

    Not all Taiwan and Chinese fans are Lin fans. Many are fans of other star players and probably more so than Lin.

  • I expected JLin to be extra-aggressive to come out in the 3rd quarter & 4th but he was not the PG.

    Either his ankle was sorely limited that he can’t drive efficiently as a PG then he’s assigned the SG, or JLin’s just going through the motion of the role that Clifford asked him to play.

    I really want to hear what JLin had to say regarding this ankle injury or limited role in the past 4 games. He’s going to give a hint or tweet to indicate something is wrong with his role

  • yes, hope he can do it quickly

  • Lin Win

    It’s clear that the poster isn’t trolling.
    Being called pathetic is nothing compared to the insults being said in the gamethreads.

  • LinMad

    ya, what will it take for him to see Lin is being marginalized? 5 minutes per game?

  • webattorney

    Agreed. No open dislike.

  • it was getting so bad when Curry kept launching 3s but also got easy layup over Kemba. Clifford just didn’t make quick adjustment like always

  • sws94

    That’s a good thing. Lin can only get a lot of minutes with a substantial amount being alongside Kemba. Originally, Clifford said he wanted Lin and Kemba to be 2 PnR guards creating big challenges for defenses. So it’s good they are playing together to try to build chemistry. What is not so good is that they aren’t playing off of each other so much and I put that more on Kemba than Lin.

  • LinMad

    well his Weibo page shows he has 4 million fans, that is more than Kobe’s 3.7 million fans and some of you said Kobe is much bigger than Lin in China.

    Yeah…i admire that he wants to play that way but at the same time as a fan who wants to see him get awesome stats…just want to see him get his first. It is sad to see this turn of events…though for this game specifically imo we cant discount the ankle thing. Lets see the trend going forward

  • sport

    denial…

  • cdblue10

    LA i’ll agree but Hou they’re like angels compare to Clif and company.

  • Dan Cohen

    25 mil vs 2 mil

    ALSO this was when he was starting.

  • I agree.

    It’s too bad that all the good points were erased due to 1 word.
    The main discussion should be about being too subjective on pro-Kemba

  • CJSHYY

    He’s not always right & I disagree w him on this one…

  • Dan Cohen

    we not bashing, we speaking da truth duth.

  • LinMad

    i don’t know, in LA his teammates did like him besides Kobe.

  • jeremy

    get out paul

  • your son’s voltaire

    clifford made a complete 180 on Lin once the season started. it’s completely different from preseason so i don’t understand how paul can’t see it

  • cdblue10

    BS

  • Rzo Vlade

    wth dell is scrub….steph mvp

  • jeremy

    Hou was 100x better lol

  • james brown

    what rocky had said remind me of JLIN’s actions right now. He’s allowing the punches coming in but he persevere and kept on going and going until somebody stopped pounding on him because they were so tired of hitting him coz he don’t stop moving forward and gain the respect of everybody!

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! I don’t think Lin is really close to any of his teammates in Hornets. Rox he has more friends.

  • james brown

    he’s avoiding what is there right now so he can live with peace with in himself.

  • k.smith

    web, besides lin’s ankle, why is he playing less?

  • If it’s “open” dislike, I agree

    If it’s “not-so-open” dislike, it’s 50-50

    His teammates have been very good to JLin.
    His coach has been inconsistent with mixed results so I want to hear more evidence from JLin’s interviews/tweets before I made up my mind.

  • JoeTeam

    Lots of news articles you can read.

  • Love Lin

    Theres no doube that Steph is amazing, but isnt Dell one of the HOF? Im not old enough 2 participate in his NBA era.. 🙂

  • CJSHYY
  • JoeTeam

    this.

  • CJSHYY

    Also like this one. Pete will really unfollow Nathan or not…?

    https://twitter.com/zukovka/status/672245254330974208

  • heart

    Yep, many times for me.

  • jeremy

    Paul says Lin is looking to pass more..
    what? he barely even touches the ball
    smh not sure what game he was watching lol

  • Love Lin

    Ur comment makes me look at this fm diff angle.. We hvnt read any negative tweets fm Lin yet, so… well, just wait..

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! Paul is nice guy. We do follow each other on tweet but just can’t agree w his opinion sometimes.

  • CaliUSMC

    Not a HOF. But lets just say Dell always drained them 3’s on 95′ NBA JAM Super Nintendo 🙂

  • yes, it’s important to get validation from JLin tweet or interviews.

    He’s a smart guy and he has always let us know through tweets or interviews with code-words when things went horribly wrong

  • heart

    Yep.

  • your son’s voltaire

    didn’t Lin put out a bible verse before this game? other than that, he’s not going to express his discontent publicly

  • Andrew Ho

    I feel your fire but just perhaps consider it may be not doing lin any good. Afterall media has a big hand in shaping perceptions of a player. Its better for lin to have them on his side or at least not actively against him…which they could become if they dislike his fans. Not logical i know put people are driven by emotions a lot of the time.

  • bolero

    https://streamable.com/kmsp

    walker was upset for not getting help on D..

  • JoeTeam

    For those of you who have a problem with Lin playing 13 mins on a bad ankle night, have a look at J Bayless, a good player. DNP-CD coach wanted to eval Tyler Ennis. Now look at what Tyler did.

    If we want to be fans of easy street, let’s be fans for Curry and GSW. For now, being a Lin fan means going through a Ronin year. Please look that term up. You end up sort of solo and you have to be brave. Next year will be different, and my fear is the numbers this year won’t get him the role we all want him to have. Fingers crossed, stay positive.

  • your son’s voltaire

    doesn’t make sense since clifford put Lin back into the game after just playing 5 minutes through 3 whole quarters

  • Steppen03

    Why the crowd were booing at the end ?? Stay classy…

  • Yascar

    The immediate past Bible verse was “Rejoice always, pray continually… “

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin isn’t a ronin, he’s a deadly assassin

  • JoeTeam

    well, now that’s positive thank you.

  • LinMad

    idek if i should share this

  • CJSHYY

    That’s coach’s problem…

  • Joe what do you know

    That’s just what GSW does to you… Everyone can be a weapon, everyone can’t be left alone…

    But Marvin and Cody could’ve helped a tiny bit however they didn’t even move….

  • kittyhead

    Ya, blame Clifford not get the game plan ready.

  • your son’s voltaire

    yes that’s right. he was VERY down after the last game and the bible verse was expected. having real issues right now

  • CJSHYY

    I thought he was doing this for 2 days…LOL!

  • not yet.

    11/26 was “give thanks in all circumstances”
    11/25 was the WAS game where a quick 2PFs got him pulled

    Something weird has happened. Clifford raved about his defense then he’s silent with short leash.

    Let’s see if Lin will give us a tweet before Dec 5 Bulls game

  • Lin Win

    Lol AtTheHive is not a media. Lin fans outnumber the whole roster’s fans by miles.
    Lin coming to Hornets was the only spotlight they got in years.

  • khomphuong2

    Dorm internet going down during the most fun game of the year. ??— At The Hive (@At_The_Hive) December 3, 2015

    This guy is a college kid. Why bother?

  • Briiick

    Who was he talking about? I thought McHale was fired.

  • Steppen03

    I’m not worried about JL7’s PT for one game. I’m not worried about Roberts taking over – not sure how many would about that… But JL7’s limited role and less PT are not something that’s just pop up. It’s been a trend. Cliff don’t know how to use Lin correctly: be the combo guard with the starters and second unit – playing above 28+ min. every game – a true 6th man. That’s not happening. It will never happen enough to save the Hornets, unfortunately. I’m just going to judge him a game at a time. But one thing is for sure: developing JL7 is not one of the agendas.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Tyler Ennis who? It’s too obvious they made a big mistake to star him in the first place. 13 min was not the problem since we’re used to it. It’s the run to the corner doing nothing role while allowing Curry torching Kemba from anywhere was the problem.

  • CJSHYY

    Ido sure has different opinion from Paul this time….

    https://twitter.com/IdoAmir/status/672243569957208064

  • Carl Shula

    Come on. You don’t need an expert to tell you that Lin is under utilized. Just look at the stats. Of course there isn’t any open dislike. Lin isn’t playing so why should there be. Just connect the dots people. T-h-e-y-d-o-n-t-L-I-K-E-L-I-N.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No thanks to junk.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I will go with Ido. Cliff did not fulfill his part of the deal

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Priceless.

  • CJSHYY

    Me too.

  • Carl Shula

    I remember last year when Paul kept saying that the Lakers weren’t tanking on purpose…… It took him so long to finally say, yes, they are tanking on purpose.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    2+2= Clear fact.

  • JoeTeam

    yep, usage is very spotty that is not good for our man Lin.

  • cdblue10

    PFV is prolly having some eyesight problem

  • Singapore BB Fan

    if Hornets is honest about Lin and value his contributions then they should be upfront with Lin and his fans. Not lips service which the fans have witnessed since Rockets days.

  • Kemba is on the wrong end of Curry’s 10-11 shooting & 28pts in the 3rd quarter.

    https://twitter.com/NBA/status/672279049318756353

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Stop calling yourself the NBA expert Paul. Embarrassing.

  • Steppen03

    It’s so stupid!!
    You have three playmakers on the floor that can run and gun but Cliff only choose to utilize two (KW, Batum). Imagine if they all share the ball and it’s zipping around – the three of them can have 18+ points each every night. A more balance offense = a more dangerous team.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    haha doubt he watched the full game…maybe some highlights here and there to give that kind of feedback

  • cdblue10

    I cut my ties during the Cleveland game,at that moment when Lin was almost having a perfect game but didn’t give the chance to help win it was the last string.

  • CJSHYY

    Kemba needs to improve his D.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    kembarrasing…

  • sws94

    What a performance.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nothing new about Kemba D, it’s just this time Curry exposed him.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I will be super Kembarrass if that happens to JLin

  • JoeTeam

    that’s it, that was when this jumped the shark I remember.

  • bolero

  • Still enjoy this video of Lin stripping Curry and Curry having to foul Lin.

    https://youtu.be/-MH0uBZZ6rg?t=200

  • Rzo Vlade

    if i found out that cho guy is one of the guys behind this… i am piss

  • cdblue10

    Kemba should be embarrassed on this game,he’s not a star and needs to ask himself if he can carry a team.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s part or I might be wrong since he’s not gotten the extension for MJ.

  • cdblue10

    Yep

  • Singapore BB Fan

    now it has become a national embarrassment

  • Carl Shula

    Obviously Lin has to play his best and just get thru this. Being positive is important but being honest would be helpful. Just hoping he makes it thru this year and enjoys whatever time he has left in the NBA.

  • your son’s voltaire

    MJ likes certain guys like PJ, Kemba, and Tank. clifford likes certain guys like Batum and Lamb. i think Cho is the only guy that likes Lin. but clifford isn’t going to go against MJ in favor of Cho

  • CJSHYY

    Kemba sure looked bad for guarding Curry today. Cliff didn’t ask Lin to do it otherwise he would put some blame on Lin. Frank, Zeller or Lamb are all bad in D.

  • your son’s voltaire

    he gave zero effort at 18 seconds as he’s under the basket while Curry drained a wide open 3

  • Carl Shula

    It might be a blessing that Lin didn’t play. Why make him an embarrassment.

  • cdblue10

    We’ve seen his best from OT with Kings,but what did he get?

  • Carl Shula

    Of course, the bench. Usual reward.

  • CJSHYY

    Didn’t notice how bad Kemba’s D …. until today.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    “Being positive is important but being honest would be helpful. Just hoping he makes it thru this year and enjoys whatever time he has left in the NBA.”

    Wow, some positive comment. Looking forward to his retirement already?

  • Carl Shula

    I hope not. I like watching Lin. If he goes into retirement, I don’t believe it would be by his choice.

  • bolero

    But but he’s the 3rd best defender in the Hornets team…

  • JoeTeam

    nice

  • cdblue10

    You post so weird

  • but to cut kemba a little slack… curry is playing phenomenally…

  • CJSHYY

    Really? In fact, I don’t really think Hornet’s D is good…saw that highlights of Curry don’t think Cliff did good in D at all.

  • CJSHYY

    It’s true. He has been improved even more this year….Just Wow!!

  • cdblue10

    If Kemba thinks he’s the superstar of his team,he should have put some fight,but a player that doesn’t belong to that category will look like a scrub when played with the true superstars.

  • CJSHYY

    For what? Today? I think it’s Kemba should be embarrass not Lin.

  • John Focker

    Only BS really NEEDS him in the NBA.

  • occupatio

    yep, many bad posters from the other board came over here. this forum used to be better.

  • Joe what do you know

    What makes you come to the conclusion that Cho likes Lin? Please don’t tell me because he’s also Asian…

  • ec

    Golden state is undefeated. I believe the hornets were embarrassed. If Lin played a central role in the lost, he would look bad and be used as a scapegoat.

  • bolero

    Cliff said that before in an interview

  • leeda harun

    what embarrassment?

  • leeda harun

    blame it on your coach. Isn’t your coach is a defensive specialist?

  • grover chang

    Kemba looked bad with his D on Curry, but Curry does this to everyone. His incredible shooting takes all the air out of the defender. Only someone as stubborn as Lin keeps defending with all his strength.

  • Jun Liu 6 min highlight

  • grover chang

    I think we are piling on Kemba. To be fair Curry embarrasses a lot of players.

  • Spot

    Kemba Walker: franchise player. Good for them.

  • leeda harun

    kemba, batum and lamb is not enough to carry this team..especially when facing a top team

  • grover chang

    Bayless is misused like Lin.

  • Spot

    Let them fall apart without Jeremy

  • grover chang

    On top of missing out on a chance to be a top playoff team, the team is boring. Nathan is right they are boring and that makes these 20 games feel like half a season already.

  • Spot

    4 points on 30 minutes. If he was Jeremy…

  • your son’s voltaire

    educated guess, process of elimination.. MJ and clifford obviously doesn’t like Lin and so someone must like him or else they wouldn’t have pursue him in the off-season

  • your son’s voltaire

    he’s so full of it. i’ve lost all respect for him a long time ago

  • LinMad

    you mean it exposes Kemba.

  • grover chang

    I know what Lin could do and i don’t see him used properly. This is why I am upset. A missed opportunity to have Hornets win games. And win with style and lintertanment. Losing with boring basketball was unnecessary. I honestly feel if Lin was placed as the cornerstone of the team the team would be #1-3 in the East. Many winnable games thrown away.

  • Rick Johnson
  • leeda harun

    lin will try everything before we see any tweet or interview that say things went wrong

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Of course it is his too.

  • JJ Hui

    People wont help if you play hero ball all the time!

  • It’s good to start voicing the concern

    https://twitter.com/ACBeltran20/status/672299040365608960

  • I know it was only one play, but how many people have stripped Curry so cleanly in recent weeks?

  • kittyhead

    I will respect him if he is willing to do so and make equal efforts on both ends.After all this is his team and he should set the example, or he will be nothing different from Haren.

  • Spot

    Kemba’s D is incredible 😀

  • kittyhead

    lol Who are the top 2? MKG and Batumn?

  • heart

    There’s an article that Cho got Batum and wanted him at the 2 SG spot. Cho was the GM for Blazers. He knew Batum then.

  • Hope

    Vs. Bulls – 4&2 on 10 minutes.

  • leeda harun

    this guy is a lin fan. they gonna dismiss his tweet. I wish a journalist or an establish reporter can tweet something like this.

  • LinMad

    few more games like this, Lin will ask for trade by December 15th.

  • bolero
  • leeda harun

    Not really. I think the gsw sytem is design for curry.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! It’s true but we talked about today’s game & from the highlights you can tell how poor Kemba in D to make Curry shooting like crazy bc lots of open shot.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! We see lots of open shots…

  • JJ Hui

    I stopped listening to him more than a year now!

  • heart

    You caught on quickly.

  • TTNN

    so you troll that board hard, and then come back troll here.

  • Pete is the VP of Marketing.
    The more vocal fans are, the more he’ll be more concerned.

  • leeda harun

    They will only concern if hornet fans in general say this.

  • kittyhead

    I am curious if that’s true that Curry makes more than 1000 shots in practice every day? It’s so amazing he has been improving so much this season.

  • CJSHYY

    I don’t know but he’s really really good this season. I think he’s the best player in NBA now. He will get MVP again & win the ring.

  • Pete knew there was a lot of new Hornets fans because of JLin
    He’s been very cordial to engage with Lin fans.

    I’m sure it’ll get on their radar; I’m just not sure if he has the power to change the basketball side

  • leeda harun

    More like 300 x7days 🙂

  • leeda harun

    I thinkthat will be the last choice..

  • CJSHYY

    I think he knows pretty well how Lin’s fans feel… bc he only followed 5 people Nathan is one of them & there are lots of Lin’s fans sent tweets to Nathan…. I am sure he got the message already.

  • CJSHYY

    I guess Lin didn’t talk to Curry after the game like the past…. no picture so far…

  • leeda harun

    for a marketing department to have a guy like lin is like a dream comes true.unfortunately lin maybe going to stay only for 1 year

  • heart

    Notice how many times now that Cliff allowed KW played big minutes at home games regardless of needs for in-game adjustments. He probably thought that KW could pulled it off tonight against GSW to give him the win in front of the home crowd cheers. Yet, after KW’s many misses, Cliff still stuck w/his pre-scripted game plan. How much longer do we have to witness his non-creative offense scheme? After tonight’s game, most true realistic Lin fans have similar conclusion in regards to Lin. You know what it is…

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! They knew it too… So need to use Lin as much as you can when you still have him. LOL!

  • Lin Win

    Well Cliff blamed our rebounding for the loss and not Kemba so…

  • CJSHYY

    I believe before the game Cliff thought there maybe a chance they could win… I am so surprised that he didn’t ask Lin to guard Curry? But that turned out to be good for Lin… LOL!

  • heart

    Of course, can’t state the obvious. Beware of his double talks now…

  • leeda harun

    The funny things is he got an extension so early.the hornet management believed that he can take them far

  • heart

    I don’t want Lin to get hurt or have to take any more charges for this team.

  • kittyhead

    My impression is a twitter posted here said something like Curry shoots more than 1000x even before formal daily practices begin? I rarely read his interviews, so not sure if this is true. Anyway no pain no gain! He has reached a higher incredible level!Really impressed!

  • CJSHYY

    I know. But I guess the plan was set up for Kemba to be shine against Curry…. LOL!

  • heart

    yep. And he’s still using the old same offense scheme w/ new players. All the talk about knowing Lin’s game… If he truly does, he should utilize Lin properly as PG, especially in these type of fast pace games like tonight.

  • leeda harun

    Yes. Iam happy for curry.He is one of the good guys.

  • heart

    Yep. That’s what I stated in my post. And it usually at home game when MJ is present.

  • CJSHYY

    W/O Lin as PG they couldn’t really run fast break well. Too bad, he always like Lin to be SG… You know the SG w/o the ball…. smh!

  • Spot

    There is a real Clifford, who is very similar to McHale, maybe even worse, and the fantasy Clifford who plays team ball and uses pnr and trusts Jeremy.

  • leeda harun

    Agree.The last time KW got 39 points.Cliff took that as point that kw can guard curry.

  • LinJa

    I’m done. NBA is blinded by stereotypes.
