G26 OKC @ LAL Game Thread

Can the Lakers win against the OKC if Kevin Durant rests his sprained ankle from last night’s game against GSW?

How will Ronnie Price fare against Russell Westbrook? Will Jeremy get more than 19 min to play as PG? Or will Kobe continue to play PG especially when the Lakers is trailing?

Let’s hope Jeremy will play his game, be aggressive but controlled, play great defense and facilitate in a balanced offense. It’s not easy to do but if he can bring good performance from practice to the game after 3 days of rest, nothing can keep Jeremy down!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    First again

  • 🙂 How did you do it so quickly?
    Well, hopefully a good sign for Jeremy! Go JLin!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL I just checked in and saw the new game thread in my study break:-)

  • KL

    Jeremy is a starter in this league. It will happen. Go Lin!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Puny 3rd…

  • Pete Roces

    4th?

  • jolno

    So how many points will the Lakers be trailing when Lin subs in? I am guessing 15 lol. Can’t be as bad as last game right (17)?

  • livyrlife

    Despite the recent doom and gloom, I am still 100% certain that Jeremy will be an All Star soon.
    Jeremy Lin is Resilient!
    Godspeed Jeremy!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    20pts???

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • MoominFloren

    slow motion layup…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    This is what KB and BS want from JLin:-)

  • JoeTeam

    Let’s go Lin! Efficient, cross the board stats. Start your foundation for rest of this year to let them go but show you are the boss.

    Let’s go Kobe – pass the ball.

    Um, Hill is playing. Wonder if he’s going to be consistent in terms of bad from his last 2 games.

    Hope Westy bricks …

  • BobbyH

    And Rice does his normal job.

  • Brent Yen

    Maybe today…lin will have 22 minutes…..I hope it will be more than 19…lol

  • MoominFloren

    Kobe bricks. WB beasts.

  • MoominFloren

    if starters dig a hole big enough, Lin may see more minutes

  • Brent Yen

    I am not sure if Clarkson is with the team or not. If he is…he is the guy playing garbage time, not Lin

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Bearness

    I know it’s done in good humor, but that’s getting lame.

  • MoominFloren

    I mean if they dig a hole early in the 1Q, Lin may play earlier, more minutes if he is able to keep them up… ..Go Lin. Keep shooting!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ibaka and Perkins will be on going for Jeremy’s throat this game… leaving out whoever they’re guarding

  • JoeTeam

    I’m playing Lin in Fantasy so he’d better get 22 mins or more to blow off his last 2 games of low output lol. Aren’t I a boxscore fan …

  • Brent Yen

    LOL….At least you have legit reasons..

  • Alaingrvis

    he isn’t starting so

  • JoeTeam

    hey and some nights like tonight, my opponent has Kobe so we need Kobe to stink it up and Lin to come back strong. Could be a glorious night for me a Lin fan, or just another ‘aw cr …”

  • Statpad time! yeah..

  • look at us .. 22 min will be a highlight of the night :>
    McHale suddenly looks like Santa Claus now.. haha

  • JoeTeam

    Really, this year is not about winning bball, so time to get stats, highlights and spend time in LA finding that sweet balanced life …

  • Brent Yen

    “We’re not asking you to be perfect on every play. What we’re asking of you and what you should be asking of each other is to give a perfect effort from snap to whistle.” – Coach Ladouceur

    That’s what Lin is doing

  • Brent Yen

    LOL hahaha true

  • JC

    Blazers down by 2, let’s see if lillard can make a 3 against Spurs.

  • JoeTeam

    I see that on D and of course he has physical mistakes from all that exhaustion. I hate it when ppl who never played the game or are just pundits say he’s lost his confidence or is confused because he’s not. The Booz interview – the reporters were going for the soundbite, and Booz upheld Lin as much as he could with the onslaught. So long post to say … yes, you are right, Lin is doing it right as as best as he can. That’s why I play him … for the Glory! when he comes through and I’ll take the loss if he doesn’t.

  • JoeTeam

    I don’t miss seeing Harden’s face 4 times a week.

  • Brent Yen

    Exactly

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • winner

    Is tie now. Might go OT.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JoeTeam

    Oh, De La Salle … you are too close to my home.

  • Brent Yen

    Haha….tribute to Kobe now…LOL

  • Between Kobe and Harden, it’s a toss-up nowadays :]

  • that sweet stats to get the next contract and brighter future :]

  • Brent Yen

    HAHAHA Manu grabbed his own screen man to block the defender….I guess Lin can learn from it too. Bad screen? no problem, pull him to the right position…JK

  • he’s probably thinking .. I can play 5 more years! lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Whenever until mother nature takes him out.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No desire to see any of these: JH, KM, DM, PB, KB and BS.

  • or Chronos as Kobe said, right?

  • ok, who thinks Lakers will be down 10+ by end of Q1?

  • Brent Yen

    Down by 13 when Lin comes in I think…LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s right!

  • ok, I have 11 :>

  • Brent Yen

    Price is hot…I guess this game will be ok

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I would say 20 when JLin brought in:-)

  • yes, when Prices scores, that’s considered hot :]
    until he scores 3 and Kobe benches him

  • Alaingrvis

    making one shot is getting hot for price

  • lol.. probably not enough time

  • sometimes .. Russel plays for the other team

  • Brent Yen

    Ugly Princeton set

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Would love to see that but it’s 4-2 now:-(

  • Brent Yen

    He is Lakers’ hope today

  • RB just blew by Price there

  • his defense was speared

  • Brent Yen

    HIlls just made yet another mistake. LOL

  • Dorothy

    Where can I see the game? SAS still on ESPN.

  • Brent Yen

    Price is hot!!!

  • Brent Yen

    ESPN3

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Brent Yen

    Price scored more than OKC combined

  • Alaingrvis

    price is funny

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW Price is really hot: 8 pts now:-(

  • super-hot!
    Lin’s the last one to get up after the 2nd 3

  • Brent Yen

    Has to give him credit…LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Price played perfect today. Not much Lin…..turn off TV

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Can’t watch the game but just follow the score.

  • Alaingrvis

    after 21 games of crap ohh ok

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep JLin will be DNP CD

  • Brent Yen

    He knows…Lin is ready to go back to the locker

  • Alaingrvis

    okc is all durant it seems

  • MomentousPetey

    I wouldn’t consider RW blowing by him and making lucky 3s “perfect”

  • This will be a more competitive game.
    OKC legs look tired after last night’s game

  • Brent Yen

    He was already perfect today when he made that 2

  • Price is feeling it and letting it fly.

    When a coach has the faith to play you for many 0pts, he’s got nothing to lose

  • MoominFloren

    Can’t believe the score !!!!!

  • Dorothy

    Which channel is ESPN3 on Verizon Fios?

  • Bearness

    If you subtract Price’s score (anomaly), it’s even. =)

  • Alaingrvis

    wth

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL JLin didn’t even bother to stand when Price hit the 3rd 3s

  • I bet Byron is gleeful Price scoring some points so it justifies him playing Lin fewer minutes.
    Let’s see if he brings Lin in at 3 min or 2nd quarter

  • Brent Yen

    Not sure just check the SPortCenter

  • MoominFloren

    WT…..11 pts for Price !?!?!

  • kauaiblue

    Good

  • Brent Yen

    So…Even Price is hot, Kobe still insists to make home run pass to bigs…At least he is fair

  • Chipdip

    No ill feeling toward Price. He wants to get signed for big buck so good for him.

  • RB just baited Price to draw a foul and drained the 2pt.

    3PT-play!

  • Dorothy

    thanks

  • he’s making the most of his opportunities
    With BScott having full faith in him, he has nothing to lose.

  • Chipdip

    Good for him!

  • kauaiblue

    Lol… price

  • Alaingrvis

    lol scare before lin

  • Price 11 pts, Kobe 0 pts.

    I think Lin should come in for Kobe

  • knibb

    Price better be careful, if he does any better Kobe’s going to send to back to the bench.

  • Brent Yen

    Price did not take the chance when Adams is on the floor. Too bad..

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Welcome! Finally I was able to watch after the first few minutes.

  • MoominFloren

    14 pts….

  • Brent Yen

    Kind of weird tho…..It means he sends Lin back to starters…LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thunder continues to leave Price open for 3s. He is able to make it tonight. So funny he himself couldn’t believe after he shoot the 4th ones.

  • knibb

    That’d be perfect but “knowing” BS, he might send in Clarkson instead.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    KB should even play in this game. Tos machine.

  • MoominFloren

    What’s his career high ?? 14 pts?

  • Yascar

    Hey this is good. Lakers got their star pg. They might trade Lin now.

  • Lin cut to the rim for 2!!

  • Lin off the glass for 2!!

  • Bearness

    Sorry to go off topic, but Spurs vs Blazers going 3OT. Wow, crazy game.

  • Chipdip

    Lin it up!

  • Brent Yen

    Kudos for Kobe to reverse the ball, go with the pinch post option out of the triangle

  • Chipdip

    I hope so… really would like Lin go to a smaller market team

  • Alaingrvis

    lol stop it

  • sport

    Want them to trade Lin before the trade deadline.

  • Alaingrvis

    won’t happen. random was the best shot. they didn’t even offer him

  • LOL at Price shaking his head after making so many shots :]
    It’s not just us who couldn’t believe it!

    Good for him, though!

  • Brent Yen

    Lillard is really a tough cover..

  • sws94

    18

  • Alaingrvis

    this game if it ended right now is the best of price career

  • already switched, eh? haha..

    Lin is a perfect 2-2 for 4pts w/ 2 rebs.
    He’s ready to bring it

  • sport

    Guess OKC’s defense is just as crappy as Lakers? lol

  • MoominFloren

    Thx

  • Brent Yen

    Simple, when a team play team ball…Lin scores

  • B2B so tired legs .. but credit Price for letting them fly
    After so many 0 pts games, he’s bound to get his shots down :]

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    KB is 0-2 after 12 minutes.

  • Lin’s aggressive driving to the rim.
    Very good to see!

  • sport

    You know OKC is crappy when Lin has 3 rebounds already. Lets hope he gets a double double! Pressure is on when Price is playing well!

  • Pete Roces

    Guys, Spurs vs Rip city is way more exciting, 3OT. Lillard is AMAZING!, probably the best pg this season. He can’t miss..40 pts already.

  • Brent Yen

    2 Tovs

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has 4 rebounds. also his passes are a little too risky

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    What happened on that one???

  • sport

    Was that off OKC? Lin with 4 rebounds already! Good to see that! Haven’t seen him get so many rebounds in a while! Lets hope he keeps scoring and gets his double double!

  • Brent Yen

    Not sure…

  • kauaiblue

    Why does he always pass it?

  • Alaingrvis

    nope behind ellington who reach back but dropped it

  • Brent Yen

    Spurs are gassed…

  • sport

    Saw that, it’s crazy 3 OTs!!

  • Alaingrvis

    shot was more open

  • Brent Yen

    Standard fast break procedure

  • Alaingrvis

    would rather he shoot that one or get a better pass

  • sws94

    He needs to shoot it. Looking for his own shot, he did well. Trying to make those pin point passes with speed, TO.

  • Pete Roces

    Portland get this game…what a ball game. Now compare LA to them..pffft

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is too fast for his team

  • Bearness

    Lillard was clutch.

  • Brent Yen

    I guess Lin has to slow down for his teammates…Like how Parker does it

  • sport

    Well after finally going to 2nd round last playoffs, Blazers stars are now hungry for more. Not to mention everyone plays hard against the Champs too bad Spurs are short handed right now.

  • Bearness

    But Spurs actually have a half court offense…

  • Brent Yen

    He does not have options anyway

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugly shot selection Lakers.. what else is new lol

  • cshot

    u kidding me… sigh price back in

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is still on the court is new

  • Bearness

    Lakers players would disagree. They all think they are options. Kobe, Young, Boozer, etc are all so busy chucking it up as soon as ball is passed to them. LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Why JLin only played 7:37 and checked out again???

  • Bearness

    Maybe because he came in even later than usual?

  • Brent Yen

    That is why ther are not as good as they can

  • sport

    BS wanting to pad Price’s stats what else is new?

  • cshot

    cus roonnie pirce i s having the game of his life

  • sws94

    Come on Byron. Lin shouldn’t be out of the game already.

  • Brent Yen

    Because Price is hot. Lin does not have PG instinct

  • Bearness

    ROFL was that a Ronnie Price heat check shot?

  • David Kim

    Scott doing his best make Price look good

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Eh…… you spoke too soon

  • sport

    And..is out cold, good!!

  • Brent Yen

    Yeah….too soon I was thinking he would be yanked like 2 minutes earlirer

  • sport

    OKC making a easy come back against Lakers starters lol so much for “better defense” to start Price and Davis.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Ok not watching. Go Thunder!:-)

  • Brent Yen

    no…just watch and cheer for OKC

  • Alaingrvis

    would be shocked if price don’t make a shot again

  • sport

    Same here, Lin out go Thunder! Westbrook having it easy against Oldie Bryant and scrub Price.

  • Bearness

    Yep turning it off pretty soon…

  • David Kim

    i am more frustrated these days than Lin in Houston.

  • Alaingrvis

    wouldn’t

  • Bearness

    I was about to say… haha

  • MoominFloren

    Let’s go WB! Cant let Price beat you in score!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • PPP

    be positive guys, lakers are showing off price for a trade. lol

  • sport

    BS is set on making his 0 point guy look good, and continuing with his long subbing patterns. At least Mchale insisted on his 8 guy rotation where Lin got more minutes!

  • kauaiblue

    This crep is boring

  • Brent Yen

    The biggest mistake OKC made so far is they loaded on Kobe….They are taking out the worst player on the floor

  • sport

    His bricking will be Lakers’ starters demise lol

  • David Kim

    34 38 haha…

  • kauaiblue

    Mark jackson said something decent about jlin… “hes too good of a player to be playing this way… not for lack of effort but rather rhythym.”

  • MoominFloren

    No, Price is the answer – BS the Proud Papa

  • Brent Yen

    He said it? I muted the TV

  • cshot

    how many fouls does price have?

  • Brent Yen

    RWB is moving Price around….

  • Brent Yen

    2 I think

  • sport

    2, Lets hope he gets 2 more for 4 lol.

  • CaliUSMC

    Price seems to be playing great!

  • David Kim

    yes 3…..

  • Bearness

    More points than rest of starters combined. Welcome to bizarro world.

  • Carol Tiu

    That was a pleasure to watch lol

  • Brent Yen

    Not sarcasm…I really did not know Price is this Charmin in the post

  • Brent Yen

    Not bad…..good game from him

  • Alaingrvis

    so price has to be taken off westbrook.soo why is he out there

  • Bearness

    He is backing himself up in anticipation of RB backing him up. LOL

  • sport

    So much for Price’s “defense”, they switched Johnson on Westbrook now he’s getting fouls!

  • Brent Yen

    Exactly….that is weird…

  • kauaiblue

    Yep… i almost shat my pants

  • sport

    Come on get your third foul Price so Lin can come in!!

  • MomentousPetey

    good one!

  • Alaingrvis

    off westbrook soo

  • sws94

    Johnson doesn’t guard PGs well though. And why is Price out there, his miracle shooting has come back to Earth.

  • BobbyH

    Only circumstance can get Lin out of this pit hole. But Lin still needs to perform.

  • BuzzerBeater

    hey i just turned on the game, why did he say that? was it cuz of JLin’s 2 TOs? or what?

  • 7iger

    Just box score watching but at this rate Lin will only get 15 minutes.

  • sport

    I hope he learns his lesson that he always has to get his points as a starter because his role isn’t safe against any coach not named MDA!

  • kauaiblue

    I think im going to sleep…

  • BobbyH

    After this LA sting, Lin should learn a hard lesson.

  • blubell
  • Bearness

    I’m sure you right, unfortunately.

  • Alaingrvis

    well so much for the lead

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Lakers lost all 8 pts led while JLin was out and now 50-52. So they lost 10 pts when JLin was subbed out. Great job BS and KB!!!!

  • sport

    BS doesn’t care just want his golden boy Price to get his points to justify his decision and Kobe to get his. At this rate Kobe will get single digit games.

  • MomentousPetey

    Flagged.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    What are you talking about???? Are you even watching the same game as me???

  • MomentousPetey

    Just flag bro

  • Brent Yen

    Hahahaha

  • sport

    If you’re from a diff time zone it’s really not worth it to stay up late to watch Lin. Can always watch replay the next day from this link http://replay.nbaliveonline.tv/

  • joyce ward

    This is probably a site that you need not post on.if you can”t give back intellegent criticism, then you don”t neef yo post here

  • TTNN

    LOL, now Price got yelled at by Kobe.

  • Dorothy

    Don’t forget to vote for Lin.

  • Brent Yen

    THat was purely Kobe’s fault

  • Bearness

    Even if it’s low pay, I hope Lin will go for 2-year contract next year (2nd year player option) and play for a team that will give him 30+ minutes. Really so sick of his own teams bringing him down.

  • Brent Yen

    Did, did, and did.

  • Bearness

    Which is why he needed to yell at someone.

  • JoeTeam

    Brent, you know math being Mr MatLab … the more minutes Lin plays and is more productive than Kobe, the more I win my Fantasy because we’re erasing Lin’s 17 minutes of low productivity from last game. What a fun night. Go Lin, out efficient Kobe. Go Kobe, jack up shots lol.

  • sport

    He has to choose the right coach and one that plays teamball.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Did on 3 places – All ballot site, Twitter and FB faithfully since Day 1 mmmhhhhh

  • BuzzerBeater

    Kobe, who is playing like a steaming hot pile of garbage lol smh.

  • knibb

    Confirmed. He actually said it.

  • Briiick

    One vote per day. I vote for the winner Lin not some stat padding pretenders.

  • sport

    Kobe looking for someone to blame guess it’s Price the scapegoat instead of Lin now.

  • David Kim

    I was listening espn ny radio today. Barkley said triangle offense is just for Jordan, Pippen, Kobe and Shaq not for others. There were 4 coaches who tried triangle offense. They all failed and are fired quickly. Scott (Princeton offense similar to triangle offense) will be gone when Kobe is gone. May be he will be gone before Kobe.

  • MoominFloren

    Top scorer: Price 14 pts
    Top rebounder: Davis 5, Lin 4
    and Kobe 1/6 FG
    OKC 52: 50 LAL
    ……
    Pigs can fly

  • blubell

    Thanks for the reminder. So busy these days, I keep forgetting…

  • Alaingrvis

    when price is your leading scorer…………..

  • TTNN

    yeah, both center rebounded total 4, = Lin’s rebound #

  • Sophie Paris

    So lin gonna play 14mn… lakers loss ;p

  • Alaingrvis

    likely

  • Sophie Paris

    1 lucky night in 10 years xD

  • KL

    At least Lin’s +/- has improved since being separated from Kobe.

  • TTNN

    everyone don’t play with Kobe would get positive +/-

  • blubell

    Seems like Price will finally play around 30 minutes as a starter. smh…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Westbrook’s assists looks like, “dude I’ma dump the ball to you because I’m covered”

  • Bearness

    “1 lucky quarter in 10 years” FIFY =)

  • Alaingrvis

    lol some how starters in negative again

  • TTNN

    Looks like Byron will make sure Price will play against Westbrook, so whenever Westbrooks is on, Lin will be off.

  • Brent Yen

    Of course….how can they survive NBA is beyond me

  • grover chang

    My prayer for games is that Lin ends it with joy.

  • Alaingrvis

    yep. then price will be taken off westbrook so wes can guard him and not stop nothing

  • Sophie Paris

    Yea 14 pts for him is already his career best no? Lol

  • Brent Yen

    SOunds good.

  • kauaiblue

    Thanks!

  • Promo Sports World

    10 points please

  • Brent Yen

    18 is….

  • Bearness

    Probably. Win or lose, Price is celebrating tonight! ROFL

  • BuzzerBeater

    Price must’ve sacrificed a goat or something in exchange for those shots. I think the magic wore off by now.
    Lakers still trailing even with his godly performance that will never happen again.

    Lets go OKC!

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    regie jackson gets 19 minutes. lol who three year ago would prey lin would get the reggie jackson treatment

  • Alaingrvis

    lol a joke right

  • kauaiblue

    Id love to see jlin for once just get pissed and go against this good boy team player serve my teammates thing…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    hahahahahahahahahaha on that sacrifice.. poor goat probably got its throat slit.

  • Alaingrvis

    so kobe fatigue after 4 day rest.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Just voted for Allstar my Picks: Aldridge, Blake, Marc Gasol, Lin, and Thompson.

  • 7iger

    Lol a big ditch

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You got a dynasty there… who’s the 3 on that lineup?

  • Bearness

    He does sometimes. Like in last Celtics game. Then Byron promptly benches him. He simply is not going to give him the chance.

  • MoominFloren

    LOL 4 zero pt games coming

  • blubell
  • BuzzerBeater

    If anyone’s unsure of which big to pick, if I could kindly suggest ANTHONY DAVIS.
    A vote for Anthony Davis is a vote for down to earth, unselfish future superstars. Thank you /end campaign

  • BuzzerBeater

    sport who’s Thompson?

  • Brent Yen

    LAL seems ditched that high post split……

  • sport

    I was going to vote for Anthony Davis but I figured with his hype he’d get alot of votes anyway.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If I’ll vote, my lineup would be:
    J. Lin
    K. Thompson
    N. Batum
    A. Davis
    T. Duncan

  • BuzzerBeater

    nevermind durr Klay Thompson, lol totally forgot about hiim

  • BuzzerBeater

    Yay!! Basically, nobody give Dwight any votes hee

  • sport

    lol, forgot about the 40 point scorer of GSW already? The best SG of the game gotta vote for him over the fake star Harden!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think my lineup is kinda small though lol

  • Alaingrvis

    this is boring now wonder laker tv rating suck

  • blubell
  • BuzzerBeater

    I hope so or I will cry, and blame you in the process of him not getting in.

    Its a really tight race, especially in the West where all the good players are.
    Marc, Davis, Blake, Dwight, Aldrige, Duncan, Cousins..idk sport idk

  • Brent Yen

    Hahaha…The whole princeton just flowed into an ISO

  • IsabeliJane*17

    PrincISO

  • Alaingrvis

    im too bored to even troll the lakers

  • sport

    LOL 3rd quarter Kobe with 7 points, Old Man’s legs are already goners playing with the scrub starter in Price, great to see! Would love to see this single digit spree continue so long as Price is starter! OKC go double the ball hog!!

  • PPP

    bored to death, my goodness

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Please.I’m kinda thankful for this. I have enough time to look for a leather backpack for everyday use.

  • Alaingrvis

    at this rate wesbrook will have 30 points 15 assist

  • sport

    I’m not even watching, just looking at the score board, waiting for Lin to come back in and read everyone’s posts on here.

  • MoominFloren

    haha….Can’t allow Price outshine him…no one is going to touch the ball from now on….

  • sport

    That’s what happens when the star player gets to lead the team all by himself. Lin used to have that with the Knicks when Melo was out.

  • Alaingrvis

    never thought a 1 point game would be this boring. atleast okc can say its the back to back

  • sport

    Price with 3 fouls, come on get your 4th and 5th foul and foul out of the game you can do it!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin will probably only plan 12 minutes by this rate.

  • Alaingrvis

    he has 2

  • sport

    Opps must’ve been his assists, darn.

  • JC

    Price 23 min, Lin 8 min… This is sick, to see how bs value price or anybody else

  • Alaingrvis

    well

  • Brent Yen

    hahahahahaha….Ibaka literally just walked into the paint…

  • MoominFloren

    maybe less

  • BuzzerBeater

    Just read what happened to Landry Fields and now Im even more depressed! 🙁
    He just cant catch a break! Thankfully he’s okay.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    skipped a few steps to the basket…

  • sport

    Aww that’s sad and he was starting too! =(

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think he’s ok. No concussion. Just needs to be careful with those stitches.

  • TTNN

    what happened?

  • sport

    I bet starters might play most of 4th so Kobe can pad his stats, can’t let the star post 7 point game.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Fell on the floor head first.

  • TTNN

    Is Boozer now new 6th player now?

  • TTNN

    OMG!

  • MoominFloren

    oh….thank God

  • Lin finally is in with 2:37 in the 3rd quarter.
    Let’s go, JLin!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He was lying on the floor for a while. Received stitches on the head but no concussion.

  • MoominFloren

    Go go go

  • BuzzerBeater

    fell right on the back of the head, kept saying “I cant feel”. Scary stuff.
    He had to get 8 stitches but thankfully nothing serious.

  • BobbyH

    OKC double-team Lin when he has the ball.

  • blubell

    Hmm…why would they do that to a back up pg? lol

  • BobbyH

    Lin just couldn’t learn the lesson not doing the charmin foul.

  • Alaingrvis

    wasn’t on him

  • MomentousPetey

    I think it was on Ellington

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Every team knows who is the main guy in Lakers except Tank Commander BS and KB.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    On Ellington

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Don’t call out JLin unnecessarily.

  • Man, ESPN assigned the shooting foul to Lin.
    Should be Ellington!

  • blubell
  • sport

    Sacre with the horrible TO again! ><"

  • Alaingrvis

    lol that was funny

  • Boozer made a bad pass leading to 3pt

  • IsabeliJane*17

    hahaha that is just so horrible…

  • blubell

    They just changed it.

  • MomentousPetey

    It was Boozer dude…

  • MomentousPetey

    Flagged

  • BobbyH

    My bad.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Can’t believe it.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    These bigs make me cringe. Horrible passing and sets bad screens. Jeremy sets a better pick than them.

  • kauaiblue

    Frustrating and boring to watch…

  • livyrlife

    Jeremy’s assist to Young 3pt robbed by the scorekeeper!?

  • TTNN

    Lakers strip another Lin assist here! The Young 3 pts is Lin’s assist, but did not counted again. what happened?

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • sport

    Another missed assist?! Why?!

  • livyrlife

    no xmas gift for whoever it is

  • sws94

    It’s hard to tell them apart sometimes, lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    naughty list

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hahaha yeah. I think one of them should grow hair on the head, for easier recognition.

  • Alaingrvis

    wth tired

  • blubell

    This is at least the 3rd assist he’s not getting credited for…

  • golfhacker

    They only had four days off. Hahaha!

  • Alaingrvis

    also only 1/4 of the season

  • blubell
  • Lin has the highest rebound for the Lakers at 5.

  • sport

    lol Tired with 4 days off.

  • Alaingrvis

    scott excuses

  • Brent Yen

    Lin listening to Scott and like “what were you talking about?”

  • sws94

    Lin on this team just isn’t working. Young is too shot happy, there’s no good PnR player on the bench now that Davis is with the starters.

  • blubell

    Davis has 7.

  • sws94

    Young is out of the game.

  • Alaingrvis

    young thrown out

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Flagrant 2 on Young? The h***?

  • wow, he’s ejected?

  • Alaingrvis

    elbo to the throat yea right call

  • sport

    Young mad about not getting his minutes and shots, took it out on Adams.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I kinda think that screen by Adam is ugly.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yep.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Jeremy should do that but take it out on Scott, just sayin’

  • Alaingrvis

    still

  • Boozer is really a liability on defense

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If that you-know-what does that screen to Jeremy… I’ll upper cut him in the nuts.

  • blubell

    Nice move!

  • Nice J by J!

  • Linsanity!!!!

  • blubell
  • Nick Young is out so Byron might have to play Lin the 4th quarter!

  • sport

    Bench comes alive with Lin!

  • Alaingrvis

    wow lin doing it for lakers

  • blubell

    Nice pass… and Lakers are making a run with Jeremy’s leadership on the floor.

  • Great find by JLin to find Ellington who rained the wide open 3 on top of the key!
    Booyah!!

    LINSANITY!

  • Alaingrvis

    lets see how long he plays

  • Swaggy is out, they got no choice to let Lin score!

  • blubell

    Jeremy is the floor general.

  • yeah, let’s see how biased BScott is

  • BuzzerBeater

    ESPN has this game marked as finished, crying lol even they’re bored with it.

  • Alaingrvis

    likely ellington

  • Alaingrvis

    he will choose ellington or price

  • Brent Yen

    Lin’s time is up I guess

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL

  • blubell
  • spiderman

    Scott talks out of his rear

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin will be out anytime now.

  • Let’s see BScott bench Lin while he scored 4pts and had a huge assist to Ellington’s 3

  • spiderman

    Young needs to learn how to attack the basket more

  • Great shovel pass assist by Lin to Boozer!

  • sport

    Come on Lin go get your Triple Double!

  • blubell

    Jeremy doing it all!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    bounce shot!!

  • Lin can’t miss!!!!

  • blubell

    nice bounce 🙂

  • LOL … Linsanity!!!

  • sport

    Keep Shooting Lin, getting those rebounds, and assists!

  • occupatio

    im confused. why is kobe out?

  • sport

    LINSANITY!!

  • blubell

    Byron looks worried because Jeremy is doing so well 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    tired… as per BS.

  • Lin’s dribble penetration to find Novak… Ehm, ELLington for 3!!!

  • sport

    AWW Man if Lin Made that 3 it’d really be Linsanity!!

  • occupatio

    lol

  • JJ Hui

    Yes, Lin makes a difference!

  • occupatio

    damn if lin made that 3

  • sport

    Boo…ing Kobe ball hog in to ruin everything!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy making Ellington look better.

  • sport

    Same here really wish he made it! The crowd would’ve erupted!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    wow how did this really boring game get interesting in 2 seconds

  • occupatio

    i cant believe they called that foul on jeremy. so ridiculous

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Will BS take JLin out now??

  • ok, Kobe is back.. Prepare for a Loss!

  • blubell

    Byron better leave Jeremy in…

  • Brent Yen

    So the younger players like Lin does not bounce pass much…unlike older guy like Nash Parker Kobe etc

  • sport

    Mr. 4th quarter? XD

  • Alaingrvis

    first time after young gets tossed

  • Briiick

    We just witnessed a glimpse of Linsanity ! Keep the bench there if Lakers want to win this game.

  • sport

    Young is out and JLin is on a roll I hope he stays in!

  • Lin with 10pts/5asts/6rebs

    Let’s hope for an OT so he can get a Triple-Double!!!

  • spiderman

    you know he wont

  • sport

    Why did the BS put Kobe back in?!! He’s going to ruin everything!! Guess he can’t let the Black Mamba only get 7 points haha I hope that’s his stat line at end of game! Selfish ball hog starting Price the scrub over Lin!

  • TTNN

    should be 6 ast

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Won’t surprise if BS takes JLin out any minutes now.

  • spiderman

    are you not lintertained!!

  • blubell

    Lin still in!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Here comes Kobe to take a dump on all my hopes and dreams.
    Seriously he better not ruin this.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So Davis is inserted in the starting lineup, aside from defense, for “guaranteed” assists for Price and Kobe.

    Hehe

    Davis: Again, can I get my bench role back?
    Boozer: In your dreams.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Surprise!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blubell

    Charmin?

  • David Kim

    LIn so good to be benched by Scott LOL

  • beidou

    Should tweet Mitch and ask for 30 minutes

  • Alaingrvis

    davis wow

  • sport

    Same here! Hoping for OT so he can get his Triple Double!!!

  • sport

    I know, stupid score keeper took about his assist to Nick Young for no reason!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    These Thunder guards.. their passes look like “I’MA DUMP THE BALL TO YOU ‘CAUSE I’M COVERED!!!”

  • blubell

    We want more!!! 🙂

  • sport

    Crossing fingers for OT!

  • Brent Yen

    This stupidness is completely on Scott.

  • spiderman

    why not for win?

  • Yessss, OT please..
    Double-OT pretty please!

  • Alaingrvis

    the is how a close game should feel

  • 3D possibility

  • blubell

    More minutes and possible triple double? 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers lost a step as soon as kobe came in

  • super sloooooow..

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The Lakers are really over practice.

  • Brent Yen

    Not just kobe…almmost all the plays are about how to get a shot more tough

  • It’s like the Lakers hit the Slow-Mo button when Kobe checked in

  • JJ Hui

    Kobe came in the momentum and the flow gone!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    They downgraded from a high-def camera to a grainy, vintage model.

  • sport

    Kobe came in and taking away Lin’s assists and rebounds for that Triple Double <.<

  • 80s model :]

  • sport

    Line 10 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists! Wishing for OT!!

  • Ellington got Ibaka-ed

  • blubell

    Go Line! 🙂

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    boozer plays NFL

  • BuzzerBeater

    Linesanity!

  • Boozer played MMA then, *sigh*

  • occupatio

    damn boozer

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Reggie Jackson’s face reminds me of Patrick Beverley. I’m getting irritated at him already.

  • WWF :]

  • occupatio

    ugly s o b

  • Chipdip

    Kobe…. plz sit!

  • sport

    Kobe better not chuck up this last 3 for a loss! Want an OT so Lin can get his triple double in leaa than 30 minutes to break his record!

  • blubell

    Lin for 3… OT?

  • Brent Yen

    I would rather that shot was taken by ellinton

  • occupatio

    ellington has defended russbrook pretty well this game overall

  • David Kim

    Scott will be fired for benching Kobe or he will be fired for not benching Kobe. LOL

  • sport

    Kobe came int a ruined everything! If not Lin would’ve had his double double looking at triple double already!

  • Briiick

    Audience there can feel that, we knew that.

  • occupatio

    id prefer anyone else but kobe

  • blubell

    But what about Linsanity…

  • TTNN

    Kobe is going to lose this one

  • sport

    Either way once Kobe breaks down, he’s goner!

  • Brent Yen

    Someone has to pass the ball tho

  • Carol Tiu

    Hope they go to OT so Jeremy can get DD. He has 8 rebounds now.

  • JJ Hui

    Without Kobe in the 4th quarter, Lakers won this game!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Not impressed with Westbrook’s stats in any way.

  • and everyone knows it ..*sigh*

  • livyrlife

    Saw that BS-Kobe-a-kisser pulled Kobe and whispered to him to get ready to enter the game, i knew the momentum’s gonna shift to the Thunder…smdh

  • sport

    Lin !!

  • yeah, Lin for 2!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    wow

  • sport

    Boo…hope Lin takes the last shot!!

  • spiderman

    if he only had a brain

  • Alaingrvis

    fun game

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    you know who gonna shoot.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    ..while it lasted

  • Brent Yen

    Lin really got that step back jumper well this season. Love it

  • blubell

    Jeremy? 😛

  • Alaingrvis

    6.3 sec so no

  • Briiick

    If Kobe wants to play the point, please takes no more than 15 shots.

  • he needs 1 more!
    yeah…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    game over

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Game Ovah

  • Chipdip

    “Perfect” ending… Kobe fk it up!

  • blubell

    haha. of course

  • Everyone knows…… Kobe will miss

  • Brent Yen

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • sport

    Kobe came in ruined everything, Lin would’ve made that last shot if he passed!!

  • livyrlife

    Perfect ending!

  • Chipdip

    Good defence? No…. easy defence! Everyone on Kobe!

  • Carol Tiu

    Kobe wasted everybody’s effort

  • JJ Hui

    Why always Kobe had the last shot? This is so uglyyyyy!

  • Dorothy

    LOL, love the ending!!! Lin got his stat and Kobe messed it up. How sweet it it.

  • Alaingrvis

    young kobe makes that. 5-8 times kobe has missed a game winning shot

  • occupatio

    lalalallalala

  • blubell
  • sport

    LOL Kobe with 9 points, how’s that PG Price working out for you?

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe 3/15 worst on team takes last shot.

  • Wow… Lin got Lakers the lead and Kobe managed to slowly blow it.
    Laker fans should be so upset but can’t do anything about it!

  • TTNN

    wow, Kobe already faked up the defender, why he try to draw the foul?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That emoticon is cute lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    got twitt from Kevin King?

  • Alaingrvis

    hhahahahhaha

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    How many minutes Lin had???

  • JoeTeam

    Hehe … I went for JLin vs Kobe and it came down to who played better. Lin by a huge margin. Fantastic game, Jeremy. You singlehandedly brought the team back and then offense ground to a halt. Still, you put them in the position to win it with a simple 15′ shot, and Kobe bricked.

    Time to pass the baton, Kobe!

  • sport

    Because he’s the franchise player and it’s dumb basketball and coaching even though Lin was playing well.

  • Linja

    22

  • We got Linsanity!!!, baby!

    Whoever voted Linsanity!!! wil win!! YEAH!

  • Brent Yen

    THis pic is funny, Lin drives Kobe runs for life…

  • Guest

    22

  • David Kim

    Robin Lundberg‏@robinlundberg
    Kobe is going to wind up shooting like 35% for the season.

  • Brent Yen

    hehehehe

  • sws94

    He turned back into himself after Young was ejected. So maybe Lin’s problem is, he defers to dominant scorers too much. Anyway, he played great and finished the 4th and made a big late shot. It looked dismal after the first half for playing time and he made a difference on ESPN.

  • Alaingrvis

    um 22

  • Chipdip

    Only if he gets 35 min… speechless… really… those….

  • JoeTeam

    22′? I was guessing.

  • congrats to you … and to me too! LOL

  • occupatio

    funny thing is you know scott would do it the same way all over again

  • sws94

    Linsanity lite but yeah, some Linsanity on display.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Whatever. @brentyen:disqus has a bot that votes Linsanity at all polls lol

  • David Kim

    3-15 today LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Not really a problem or Lin’s problem….Just by design….

  • livyrlife

    Westbrook’s voice doesn’t match his mannerism and stocky body..

  • JoeTeam

    yes yes yes!

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    He is determined to lose….we know…we know

  • The important part is … Laker fans knew it!
    Plus Kobe blew it!
    LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Why does Linsanity-lite reminds me of unsalted butter?!? tsk tsk lol

  • Brent Yen

    Well at least Lin took the 2nd last shot

  • blubell

    LOL.

  • how’s the fantasy points, Bro? :]

  • sport

    Who’s up for Kobe breaking down next game to make up for his crappy performance? I’m so waiting for that so Linsanity can break out!! Thank You Nick Young for flagrant 2 and getting ejected so Lin could take over completely without you chucking shots!

  • blubell
  • he’s a Kobe-bot so yeah…. :]

  • spiderman

    and his faithful enabler

  • blubell
  • PPP

    you are biased. linsanity means the game should have won.

  • David Kim

    Kobe will definitely be retired by 2016

    -Jim Buss & Jennie Buss

    If not, we never gonna sign him back. LOL

  • I am The Jason

    Kobe being put back in the game was the death nail for the Lakers. Byron Scott should have kept Kobe on the bench for the rest of the game. As soon as the ball was not in JLin’s hand, the Thunder’s victory was assured.

  • blubell
  • Linja

    Tyson’s ?

  • Briiick

    At least Lakers’ fans there got a taste of Linsanity tonight. Guess that was good, so good they might want more…

  • JoeTeam

    I won because Lin outperformed Kobe and it went down the wire because as you know all the different players finish up their nights and this game by Lin really was double joy for me ! because the fantasy game came down to – will Lin outplay Kobe and he monstered over Kobe!!!

    You guys didn’t get to see that head to head but you can imagine that by the box score.

  • Byron “forced” him to distribute to Swaggy/Boozer.
    Once Swaggy is out, he’s free to attack w/o worrying about BS

  • JoeTeam

    Lin really had some Linsanity plays today, esp his kick out to Ellington for the 3.

  • blubell

    What about Linsane in the Membrane? lol

  • Good for you … and us! 😀

  • Brent Yen

    This game is not about Linsanity itself tho. Lin is auditioning right now. More Natl TV game like this the better. Just grab every chance to show. Not just scoring, but his overall game.

  • sport

    Except Lin won’t stay until 2016 not with BS and Kobe who chuck shots even when he’s off his game.

  • ok yeah… that too 😀
    LOL

  • David Kim

    Kobe should just retire after this season or it will just hurt his legacy.

  • blubell

    Jeremy played the whole 4th quarter and ESPN announcers had plenty praises for Jeremy. It was a good night.

  • livyrlife

    Honestly, the mini Linsanity run almost got me stop breathing for a good 3mins.. 😉

  • Brent Yen

    I should not mute the game….missed all that

  • blubell
  • yes, we are since we’re Lin fans .. since Kobe took over as PG, it didn’t take away Linsanity’s contribution.
    Not Lin’s fault

    Besides, Linsanity happened for 3 weeks in NY (even with losses)

  • Briiick

    Now that we witnessed a few minutes of Linsanity, let’s put up some votes for Lin in ASG!

  • so true!!! LOL

  • Brent Yen

    I really have no problem with Kobe taking the last shot. That should be one of the only 7 shots he take…not 12 or 10 or..

  • Chipdip

    I am a very angry man.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Waiting for highlights,highlights,highlights…

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    ah 22 mins. We needed more.

  • Alaingrvis

    reggie jackson gets the same minutes as westbrook with westbook being the starter. lin gets 22 with price as the starter. lol who figured

  • sport

    Oh really? Those racists ESPN haters and losers actually praised Lin?

  • Briiick

    My thought too.

  • Brent Yen

    If Lin did not score, the last 6 m would be Price’s to take

  • JoeTeam

    This. I felt it was winning time when Swaggy got Flagrant 2.

  • Briiick

    My thought tooooo.

  • sport

    =( was too short, wish BS didn’t put Kobe back in then Lin would’ve had his Double Double!

  • livyrlife

    dunno about tyson’s..how’s his?

  • JJ Hui

    Yes so many games and he never feel guity and that is the worst part! Knowing that he is the one who has the ball, other team just have to double or triple team in the end. All the other players built up the game but Kobe just ruined it in seconds! This is emotional and mental abuse!

  • Alaingrvis

    or if young was not thrown out

  • Chipdip

    22 min! bunch of crazy and stupid laker management …

  • KL

    ESPN has a mix. Some Lin fans, some Lin haters and everything in between. Watch out for official NBA media though. They don’t like Lin.

  • blubell
  • I am The Jason

    He was 3-15 tonight with only 7 pts. He should not have taken the last shot. Lin was hot that entire 4th quarter and Byron Scott mess up the momentum when he brought Kobe back in the game.

  • JoeTeam

    no no no, I was hyperventilating.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • blubell
  • sport

    Man still thinking about that missed 3, imagine what the crowd would’ve been if Lin made it!

  • LAJane

    Great overall…showed up in every category. 8 rebounds…:D

  • Brent Yen

    That is what I meant…Kobe should sit more and only take big shots. I can settle with that. Better than just mess up everything…

  • Alaingrvis

    i knew he would take it

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Wow BS answered why didn’t Lin shoot the last shot since he had the hot hand: 32,000 plus points.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Tank Commander at work!

  • Brent Yen

    Yes…I meant given Young not there

  • pero_square

    This guy is beyond ridiculous.

  • BuzzerBeater

    what about the 1 billion bricks in his career tho?

  • Brent Yen

    hahahahaha

  • Alaingrvis

    i would agree if kobe made more the 3 shots for the game or had a better efficiency at those shot this year

  • livyrlife

    Kobe wants to win the scoring title…i said it long before he surpassed MJ’s record..smdh

  • blubell

    Backhanded compliment… surprise surprise. smh…
    https://twitter.com/bgarcia90/status/546187050530000896

  • LAJane

    don’t knock unsalted butter….butter cream frosting rocks!! Fan of J whether savory or sweet 🙂

  • David Kim

    In todays ESPN NY RADIO SHOW, Barkley said Knicks player will not play for triangle offense. They will play for auditioning next year team. Thats what Lin gotta do?

  • Alaingrvis

    nit picking

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When you hate someone you never missed his negative point.

  • cshot

    how many dumb mistakes did kobe have?? too many to count

  • blubell
  • David Kim

    Wow he never says bad things about Kobe. LOL

  • Dorothy

    sounded so much like McHale.

  • blubell

    Don’t bite the hand that feeds you? lol

  • Let’s vote Jeremy Lin for #NBABallot!

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/546188098527576064

  • Brent Yen

    He is doing it. Brought his professionalism every game. Trying his best

  • pero_square

    It’s an open secret that BS doesn’t rate Lin, but they don’t want to make it too obvious.

  • LAJane

    Hahahahahahahaha!

  • Chipdip

    Exactly! He sounded like every ball player could have a perfect game every time

  • Alaingrvis

    or price

  • David Kim

    Follow Robin Lundberg‏@robinlundberg
    Byron Scott referred to Kobe as the Black Mamba in his in game interview. He knows where his bread is buttered.

  • JJ Hui

    Not only that but have to brown nose Kobe!

  • Why did he sound like McHale now?
    Only negatives, barely any positives.

    Did he call Boozer’s mistakes dumb too?

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    Triangle and “cornerstone” SG are the past. NBA teams are doing the Spurs’ way.

  • Brent Yen
  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lol is it true

  • Chipdip

    Clearly there is an unspoken rivalry of Kobe and Jeremy, and we all know who has the coaching staff backing up!

  • blubell

    Tell ’em Jeremy.

  • Laker fans knew Lin should have taken the last shot after making the previous shot.

  • Alaingrvis

    say it isn’t so. lol piss on the hydrant lin

  • Chipdip

    Best illustration of the game conclusion tonight

  • Linja

    I have never seen a coach dislike one player so much as to dis him every time he got a chance.
    Lin is truly a witness to all of us. Stay in faith !! All eyes can see.

  • pero_square

    *Rub hands together*

  • blubell

    Only in Kobe’s head.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • ehm… BScott must have learned from McHale :]

  • nodomo

    Great game by Lin. Sad that it took Nick’s ejection to give Lin playing time in 4Q. If nick wasn’t ejected Lin is probably sitting the 4th while Scott goes with Kobe as PG

  • Briiick

    I am glad Lin is fearless now ! That’s good, that is the attitude to wake up Linsanity !

  • blubell
  • jolno

    So? Kobe is also leading the missed FGA by a huge margin this season as well as leading the NBA in all time bricks! No wonder we just saw another brick by Kobe added to his all time missed field goal attempt record.

  • golfhacker

    Good for Jeremy. He wants to get the heck out of LA!

  • blubell

  • I am The Jason

    This is just more proof this team will suck for the rest of his tenure there. Blind to the fact Kobe was cold this entire game.

  • yes,.. part of the grand plan.
    Swaggy’s ejection was a fluke showing Linsanity impact to Laker fans.
    Now, Laker fans will be hungry for more!

  • Briiick

    Scott is a turnover for the Lakers.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    lol won’t happen. as i said at the beginning of the year kobe will find it hard lasting all year.

  • Brent Yen
  • pero_square

    I don’t think McHale was ever this critical. He never gave the praise Lin deserved but he never openly dissed Lin like this either.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin ws very passive aggressive in the interview

  • Chipdip

    I think Jeremy is sticking it to the Lakers now. What do you think?

  • LAJane

    Wow! Speakin’ out!

  • JJ Hui

    Stupidest answer from a stupid BS coach!

  • knibb

    Maybe they are related.

  • sport

    JLin: “I like game winners too”. cough cough his way of saying, “I should’ve taken that last shot not Kobe”.

  • JoeTeam

    fify: Byron ws very passive aggressive in the interview.

  • Alaingrvis

    so kobe is tired after 4 days rest. when that start happening injury gets more likely. being tired always leads to injury so it isn’t smart that kobe just fight through it. his body can’t take it. if i was scott kobe would average 30 minutes if not less

  • Linja

    His 4Q play was an audition in front of a national audience .

  • MomentousPetey

    Depends if Scott and/or Bryant are sticking……….

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • LAJane

    Grrrr…he infuriates me!!

  • JoeTeam

    Byron misheard the question. He asked about Lin not Sacre.

  • spiderman

    if he only had a brain

  • knibb

    I’d say give Kobe the rest of the season off.

  • LAJane

    Amazingly much!!!

  • spiderman

    and how many thousand plus MISSES!

    Walked my dog today and nearly lost my life because a basketball came flying at me out of no where. How many people have to die before someone puts a stop to Kobe throwing bricks? #keepthepeace #savetheanimals #serialbricker

    Since Lin came in, the Lakers have started dominating.

    Lakers will likely lose though because Scott will replace Lin with Kobe.

    Some Kobe fun facts. Out of 121 players who have shot enough to qualify for league shooting %leaders he is # 117. Out of all players in the league he is # 342 0f 438. He averages 22.4 shots a game. No other player in the league takes even 20 shots and only 3 take more then 18. Stuff of legends

    So many critics for Kobe and Scott HAHA LOL

  • JJ Hui

    James Worthy and Robert Horry praising Jeremy Lin!

  • sws94

    Byron, he brought the team back in the 4th. Give him props. He played very solid. And you had to mention dumb turnovers. You coached dumb. How’s that? This guy is bugging me big time.

  • sport

    Reporters should’ve told BS, “4 days of rest wasn’t enough for him?!!”

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s good. The more minutes he plays, the sooner I suffer less of watching him. I have enough of him. Believe Lakers is better without KB and BS anyday.

  • sport

    This comment made it official BS is a racist hater!!

  • ok, PostGame thread is open.

    Yeah, a flash of Linsanity happened tonight for Laker fans to see before Kobe stopped it to a grinding halt for a loss!

  • blubell

    Reminiscent of McHale criticizing Jeremy’s last play against the Spurs game where he scored 38 points.

  • PPP

    BS made a dumb mistake to play lin in the 4th.

  • blubell

    Probably Boozer.

  • sport

    I’m bring out the fireworks when that happens! Watch next game Kobe does too much and injures himself, can’t wait for that!!

  • don’t forget “Lin sometimes play for the other team” plus “Lin would rather score 29pts/11TOs” out of nowhere

  • sport

    That’s a good thing, can’t wait for Kobe the selfish ball hog to break down and for Linsanity to take over!!

  • Je Ballew

    The Lakers have a pretty good team without ISO players on the court and Jeremy running the offense.

  • LW

    No suprise today. Scott is sticking to his game plan: give Kobe every chance to look good and tank for draft picks at the same time.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No bench player had this kind of media surrounding.

  • JC

    If kobe turn around and start actually helping young guys and lakers, his legacy will be greater, but of course he’s very nearsighted

  • Chipdip

    May be Kobe got him the contract… what do you think?

  • JC

    Lin’s brand of bb is a lot more fun than even watching kobe during his prime!

  • Carol Tiu

    32,000 plus manufactured points.

  • kauaiblue

    Mchale!

  • George Livingston

    This is an awesome comment I just saw from MSN with regards to a Jeremy Lin article:

    Kobe doesn’t get some things, like open shots being a better shot than one that is contested.

    On this very site in November they had an article about Kobe and here is a quote from the Mamba…

    “I asked Kobe a/b his many shots. Kobe: “I’d rather not have to do that, but you can’t just sit back and watch crime happen in front of you.”

    Right now, Kobe’s FG% is .377% and the Lakers as a team are shooting .437%. Keep in mind that Kobe is really pulling down the teams FG% because of how many shots he takes.

    Deducting Kobe’s shots from the teams total the rest of the Lakers not named Kobe are shooting .457%

    So, Kobe is shooting .377% and the rest of his team is shooting .457%

    Kobe, the crime is YOU shooting so much and so terribly and not letting your teammates shoot more as they make a lot more shots than you do.
