G31 PHX @ LAL Game Thread

Byron Scott is setting up Kobe as the hero to win the game while still sharing the ball.

Will Kobe try to pass more in the 1st half and drain more ‘clutch’ shots in the 4th quarter?

We all know everything will revolve around making Kobe to be the hero in a win.

Will Lin play more than 22 min?

Whatever it may be, Go JLin!

    Let’s go Jlin! !!! Make dragic the tragedy that he is.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    2nd

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    Starter or bench?

  • JoeTeam

    lol pregame chatter … has anyone noticed how on SAS, lately, Danny Green and Cory Joseph seem to switch off hot/cold days? It’s almost like Pop says … ok, today is your day, Danny, and we’re going to you. Etc. I don’t watch SAS games regularly, just notices the box scores and wondered what ppl think.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Since Black is a rooky, I presume he will play from bench.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Which means Jlin Nick clarkson and Black can play fast breaks. That maybe more exciting to watch.

  • JoeTeam

    except that Byron has to do something to elevate Hill’s game because it’s hurting the team. No clue what he can do as coach, and agree with you Black will have to play from the Bench. Hmmm … Booz back to 1st unit, Davis to 2nd lol. Or just Byron’s messy 4th Q where he leaves Kobe in, Booz in, Lin sometimes, swag sometimes, price whatever, and lately, Jumping Jack Clarkson (great moves sometimes, just wild sometimes). BSc seems so unorganized …

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No idea. Don’t watch any NBA games except JLin games. Since he is in Lakers. Lost my interest of watching games almost from few games after seeing too much of KOBE ball. Since he was benched, I didn’t watch but picked up to watch a little only when he played well:-)

  • hm, doesn’t he have to pass a physical test first before he can play?
    Maybe he did already.

    But yes, should be off the bench

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    BS didn’t have any “brain” as a coach. Don’t even spend time to figure him out except he is the best Tank Commander and Ego Massager in NBA.

  • JoeTeam

    BSc has nice suits lol.

  • JoeTeam

    1 day waiting?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Byron said Tarik Black will join team tomorrow and take customary
    physical. Hope is that he will be available for Tuesday’s game vs Denver.

  • yeah, it’s hard to be patient for Lin to get his chance again but one of these says …. hmm .. Linsanity will ride the wave as Chronos leaves!

  • ah ok .. makes sense.
    thanks

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Did LAL gives up player to acquire Black?

  • Yascar

    That’s interesting. Will check it out.

  • blubell
  • Frank

    get lost ellington Lin needs to stop deferring to this scrub

  • Frank

    In his previous interview,
    Lin said they had to “cater to kobe” and “find a balance”
    so if Kobe is your best player, shouldnt he be helping you guys and therefore cater to you? lol
    that sounds like a diss to kobe
    the team is bearing with kobe lol
    nice job LIN!

  • JoeTeam

    SAS is pretty fun against Rox today. Let’s go SAS while we wait …

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Did you notice the score between Harden the cornerstone and Corey B? Apparently Corey is more efficient.

  • HY C

    they waived XH.

  • Yascar

    Just because you said that, I’ve put the TVC on. Go Spurs!!

  • sws94

    I get tired of hearing Byron Scott say “on the defensive end”. He’s no defensive guru.

  • Boozer did say he “talked” about defense a lot in practice

  • Pre-game shootaround
    Need to click webstagram link

    https://twitter.com/Librafree/status/549381247705706496

  • Dorothy

    because he does not know how to coach O lol

  • Funny Bev description by Sean Elliott (ex-Spurs) LOL

    https://twitter.com/SheridanBlog/status/549379257118773248

  • JoeTeam

    Corey is having some nice games. I hope SAS beat them down the stretch. LOL announcers calling out no D by Rox. SAS having some beautiful ball movement. Rox in it because of the star system, and I’m hoping SAS wins this with some great end game play.

  • JoeTeam

    Danny green getting focus of Rox D now and Joseph and Mills stepping up. What a team, in-game handoffs of heat. Imagine that.

  • JoeTeam

    Great Tduncan takes a charge from Harden down the stretch! Kobe said he’d never take one, that’s for others. Joseph to Duncan for small on that possession. 98-91 and just say less than 2 mins before, it was tied. Go Spurs!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Harden with 6 TO a +/- minus 15. Comparable to Mr. Kobe.

  • Pete Roces

    Spurs basketball is an art, so beautiful to watch and you can’t stop asking for more. On the other hand, Rockets basketball….nevermind.

  • Pete Roces

    LOL!

  • JoeTeam

    announcers having a fun day drawing out all the spurs plays. BBall clinic for me.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    BS is just bs talker.

  • JoeTeam

    YES!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Let’s see how many minutes KB will play. I would say around 35m. If overtime, will be

  • Manu made a beautiful pass off his drive to find Bonner for a corner 3.
    I just imagined Lin in a black Spurs jersey doing the same move in 2015 :]

  • JoeTeam

    just love TDuncan. Missed a FT, rubbed his head and swung his arms like a kid.

  • Manu with a fake pass to Duncan off his drive to get Howard to try to block.
    Wrap-around pass to Duncan under the basket to get fouled. 2 FTs

    Also, Lin in black Spurs jersey doing the same move. :]

  • The Big Fundamental, baby!
    Please postpone 1 more year of retirement, Tim.

    Tim always picked up Lin off the floor after fouling him :]

  • LW

    Seems like a good pickup for Lakers. Rockets have released many good players: Lowry, Dragic, Patterson, Asik, Parsons, Lin…

  • JoeTeam

    Lin plus 2 years, please.

  • Pete Roces

    Amazing handle by the beard!

  • blubell
  • LOL Harden just bounced the ball out-of-bound with fancy dribble off-his-foot with a chance to tie it with a 3

  • JoeTeam

    with you watching this …. if Lin + Spurs, I’d have to take a leave of absence from work for 8 mos lol.

  • LOL .. we’ll be laughing too much every 2-3 nights

  • JoeTeam

    lol calling patty mills the tasmanian devil D.

  • JoeTeam

    stat pad me some Danny Green – he earned it! Seal the game, Danny!

  • Brent is right. Ariza is better than PArsons.

    Trevor Ariza can sure make his open 3

  • blubell

    James Worthy picked Jeremy as the player that should be making impact tonight.

  • MoominFloren

    Only if he’s allowed to play…

  • I have to say Harden is better than Kobe in passing the ball.
    With him covered, he passed to a wide-open Ariza

  • JoeTeam

    earlier announcer’s clinic … I think they were saying fox PG D cheating PG to the left, and Dmo was on the wrong side of the court by 8 ft. That’s a Rox coaching mistake.

  • Chipdip

    Go Lin Go!

  • JoeTeam

    harden is v young, and his ego isn’t as intense as Kobe’s. I would think he’s not going to give up the ball when he wants it, but he also doesn’t exude as much ball vacuum as kobe’s spirit. V deflating to play with that kind of 1-1 sucking vacuum when you have teammates that want to win together.

  • sport

    Danny Green sealed the win for Spurs against the Rockets with his free throw. Spurs are such a classy team. Wish Jeremy Lin can join them this off season. Pelicans would be most ideal but not sure whether the organization will marginalize him for Anthony Davis even though a star PF is the best fit for a star PG!

  • JoeTeam

    okay! SAS wins now onto LAL hehe.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i cant stop watching jeremy lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=242H7F8DKHA

  • LAJane

    😀

  • blubell

    Hmmm, maybe Worthy has an insider info that Jeremy will play more minutes tonight? lol. He’s expecting Jeremy to have 12 pts/7ast and praised his passing from last game.

  • Chipdip

    Sweeeeeeeeetttt!!! Go Lakers Go!

  • JoeTeam

    there’d be too many good comments to read, too many highlights, too many articles, and waaay too many team players to get to know with all the ball sharing. At least on LAL, we only need to know about Ed Davis and Clarkson.

  • sport

    only 12 pts?

  • Chipdip

    Non! Vu can’t escape… u r linned for life!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol although no more lakers broadcast

  • Chipdip

    well Jeremy plays his usual allowed 18 to 20 min

  • oh well, we used to believe Kobe is more accomplished and won 5 rings so he won’t ball-hog as much.

    we were so wrong :[ but oh well, live & learn

  • sport

    Rockets are trying to prove they are a better team without Parsons, Asik, and Lin. It’s not going to last, be ready for a Rockets meltdown next season.

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly

  • Alaingrvis

    30 minutes lol yea right

  • blubell

    Kobe?

  • sport

    Still want the Spurs to beat Warriors in Finals for an back to back Championship! Pretty sure Cavs won’t make it to the finals.

  • Chipdip

    Help…any live link? mine not working 🙁

  • Sophie Paris

    Always nice to see Rox losing… :p

  • Chipdip

    Kobe will play less minutes…… no more than 36 tonight.

  • JoeTeam

    I can go with that … Want TD to retire as revered as they come.

  • sport
  • Alaingrvis

    sure we will see

  • JoeTeam

    well, we don’t have to be hard on ourselves. We are trusting but verifying dudes. No veracity lol.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • I’ll try to be the 2nd prophet after @Jeremiah

    Kobe will pass in 1st half and only shoot 3-5 times
    Then Kobe the hero will shoot in 4th quarter to become the HERO.

    #CrimeFighterPlot

  • JoeTeam

    See y’all after the game. Tryin’ to see if my wife will let me watch (by convincing her to watch hehe). Go Lin!

  • JoeTeam

    then LAL loses down the stretch, but hey, it’s Showtime …

  • sport

    lol Get another TV.

  • Kobe: “Yeah, these people paid tickets to watch MY greatness!”

  • JC

    BS is still in the game!

  • Alaingrvis

    ha hard knock life lmao

  • Chipdip

    Thank you all… got it.

  • Go Len!
    oops.. wrong one 😀

  • yup, I expect the same thing during playoff pressure

  • sws94

    Price is beginning to score and shoot pretty well now.

  • sport

    Only 1st quarter then disappears like few games ago like what announcers said.

  • just like his 14pt-quarter a few games back
    he’s a streaky shooter

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Next season? I’d say, before ASG, full blown after ASG lol

  • sws94

    Yeah, but Lin isn’t scoring. If Price provides scoring and does OK offensively, then that doesn’t open a spot for Lin.

  • Frank

    So is Lin
    and pretty much anyone in the league lol
    but price is generally bad

  • sws94

    They are coming more often now. He’s not so horrible at shooting now most games.

  • LAJane

    sheesh…at the moment he seems to be on fire.

  • sport

    Tying Michael Jordan’s rings and passing Kobe XD

  • Chipdip

    Lin should not afraid of a teammate plays well. He just need to focus on his own plays. He improved a lot on defence, and if he gets lucky to have his own coach allow him to attack and the teammates do the same, then we can relive Linsanity again

  • Frank

    Lin isnt doing much either so Price will be a starter for a while
    Lin needs to bring out his best

  • TTNN

    it might be easier to practice a lot before game, and he shot in the first couple of minutes only. That’s the advantage being a starter.

  • sws94

    He has a coach that isn’t keen on playing him much. Anyway, Price will come back to Earth and shoot terribly again soon enough. He’s not a good shooter/scorer.

  • Promo Sports World

    Confidence is a wonderful thing and trust—-Price right now

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kobe haven’t show symptoms of “withdrawal” yet. Maybe 2nd half.

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s in a bit early…

  • JoeTeam

    1 D stop first play.

  • Promo Sports World

    The assist rebounds and defense helped lin in BS eyes last game

  • Chipdip

    Haha…Kobe reduced minutes? NO fking way… still out there…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That was a bad TO.. oh well

  • Lin needed to be careful to get the trailing guy poked the ball from behind
    Rondo did the same last game.

  • sport

    Lin moving more with Kobe handling the ball, glad he’s doing that instead of just standing around! Gotta cut to the basket or move closer to Kobe in order for him to pass you the ball!

  • JoeTeam

    2 prevents, 1 TO, 1 blown assist dunk Ed Davis, 1 good dive for FTs. About 2.5 mins.

  • occupatio

    pizza man always foul-level reaches in on lin and gets away with it a lot

  • true .. D’Antoni did the same with Lin with much higher ceiling, of course.

  • Frank

    It’s weird watching kobe so passive
    not used to this lol

  • sws94

    Lin doesn’t look right. Was he fouled on that shot. And Kobe has played almost the entire first quarter again.

  • occupatio

    indeed. lin stands around too much otherwise

  • cshot

    yah he will be shooting free throws i believe

  • sport

    Knowing BS reduced minutes mean playing longer certain quarters and sitting out others.

  • sws94

    He found Ed. Ed doesn’t blow many. Hope he gets some run with Ed this game.

  • Brent Yen

    Lack of communication. His teammates have to yell at him to warn him

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Was or wasn’t Ed blocked by Plumlee?

  • JoeTeam

    lol announcers giving geriactric props … stu: good job kobe could jump back up on his miss to deflect it to Booz. LOLOLOL

  • sport

    Great one handed rebound for his 2 point!

  • Chipdip

    wow..what’s that!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So now Jeremy is a deceptive rebounder?!?!??! Really, Stu?!??!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol refs

  • blubell

    wow… these refs

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Friggin’ Jeremy boxes out better than the bigs.

  • sport

    Phoenix Suns so bias 2 fouls on Lin!

  • JoeTeam

    you got the feeds, baby.

  • blubell

    Well… he loves Price.

  • Frank

    Lin chill dont foul too much
    youre an attacking pg chill wiht the defense

  • sport

    JLin better get mad and go at Isiah thomas!!

  • occupatio

    this ref is such a cheat

  • Chipdip

    Yeah…shame on these refs

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL thought you were watching. Not in office though, no instant replays for me *pouting*

  • Bearness

    Wow, you’re not kidding.

  • Frank

    Nah those were fouls

  • sport

    Phoenix Suns Refs did that last time when Lin played against Isiah Thomas!!

  • JoeTeam

    yeah, I missed it, was the initiation to Sacre a blown pass or was he using the glass (lol).

  • definitely some defensive star calls from having 1 ring

  • Hans

    F*king ridiculous foul calls against Jeremy. Just ridiculous

  • JoeTeam

    Family watching football. so I get to be here on my laptop and earphones. Modern tech … so much family bonding.

  • Pete Roces

    Dont want to watch it anymore.

  • cshot

    Lin is not allowed to touch anybody if he doesn’t want to get fouls called on him
    -______________________-

  • sport

    The scrub, Stu another racist obviously.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • sws94

    As long as they call them against Pheonix when Lin goes into his moves. And that’s what Lin should look to do, punish that little punk Thomas. I used to like him but not any more and Lin should just take it to him.

  • beidou

    He is loved and supported

  • I’ve been saying it’s part of the script of 1st half.
    Pass first in 1st half, then shoot in Q4 to be the hero :]

    I can read Kobe like a book now haha..

  • JoeTeam

    that was really awkward, like an old codger using long out of date terms you know what …

  • Bearness

    What is there to “aim”? You either play him those minutes or you don’t….unless you are not the coach.

  • sport

    BS continues to fit his nickname perfectly, all talk!! Really!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That frickin’ basket… sheesh.

  • sport

    In other words if they are losing he expect Kobe to play more minutes lol.

  • Bearness

    Kobe and BS are nothing if not predictable.

  • occupatio

    the repeated bias/discrimination against lin by the refs makes me really not take the NBA seriously or care much about any of it. the ones who succeed don’t necessarily deserve to succeed and vice versa — there’s no legitimacy to it.

  • Bearness

    LOL, I guess BS doesn’t need to take out Lin with 2 quick fouls since he won’t play him more than 20 minutes anyway.

  • Jeremy can’t do help D too much in this game.
    Isaiah Thomas is too dangerous with his 3s.
    Just need to deny him the ball or give it up

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin needs to keep his eyes on his man before help. SMH

  • sport

    2nd unit more fun to watch than 1st unit.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He should intimidate this guy with his size and strength

  • sport

    Nick Young 3 for 3 on Fire!!

  • blubell

    yes. a mid J!

  • Nice pull-up J by J!
    Yeah!

  • Chipdip

    The heat is on…. come on!!!!! we want more!

  • Frank

    NYoung makes 3s thats cool and all but hes annoying

  • sport

    Young keeping his defender honest and opens up JLin for his jumpers!

  • Nitron

    Keep shooting

  • Alaingrvis

    phenix comentators talked about lins trade rumors to miami and detriot

  • yes, and great to see Lin take the open jumper.
    Sometimes he would try to find Young again :]

  • sws94

    OK, now he’s getting into a rhythm. I think he should be careful about his help defense, IT can shoot from the perimeter.

  • JoeTeam

    and that stat by Brent … J’s pull up 3s at 37% is 15th in the league. Jer missed his first, and connected on his 2nd. So, 50% so far so just keep shooting!

  • Alaingrvis

    rumors

  • sport

    Young is fun to watch, and is a happy guy. I like him more than Kobe he ego maniac!

  • blubell
  • sws94

    That’s been a problem for a long time. You have to stay on a sharp shooting guard.

  • True, Brent is right.
    Lin has much success with his pull-up Js now!

    5 more please!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Your autocorrect… lol

  • Bearness

    Yeah, but I wish he would sometimes pass it back when Lin is open.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Sophie Paris

    Swaggy P night, go Jlin!!!

  • What a great play by Swaggy to give up the ball for an open Sacre inside

  • sport

    OMG Young 4 for 4!!

  • Chipdip

    He is on fire!

  • wow.. Swaggy 4/4 from 3s

  • sws94

    Not a good shot by Young, he hit it but he missed a lot of open guys there.

  • sport

    Good, less double team on Lin.

  • Bearness

    Dang, when he is on, he really is on.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Come on J just shoot over that small guy…

  • JoeTeam

    no way he was going to pass that weird.

  • Chipdip

    Only 1 sst for Lin? oh well… leading in the plus though

  • occupatio

    lin needs to stop leaving ITh

  • Sophie Paris

    Thomas keeps scoring on Lin

  • Frank

    Not really hes juts c*cky
    Kobe is more fun to watch

  • JoeTeam

    see that nasty attempt by Ellington? That was directly because Swaggy refused to pass to him on the open, so that’s what ball stoppers do to team play. Blocked and FTs at the other end.

  • blubell

    JEremy still in…

  • Chipdip

    3 times

  • blubell

    another J!

  • Bearness

    I don’t think Lin wants to guard him too tight since refs just keep calling phantom fouls on him. Not much he can do.

  • Alaingrvis

    finally refs

  • sport

    Yes Lin makes another mid jumper and offensive foul on Isiah Thomas Whahahah!!!

  • Chipdip

    about time !!! about time!!!!

  • JoeTeam

    2 for 3 pullups!

  • blubell

    That was an obvious one.

  • occupatio

    strange night

  • Chipdip

    Lin it UP!

  • Frank

    Lin doest have to stop Thomas
    Lin just needs to destroy him on the other end

  • cshot

    i agree. good observation

  • LOL can’t believe Lin got the call :]
    But Thomas is one bad actor

  • sport

    These are the blind refs we’re talking about, there can be a dead fish and they’d say it’s alive!!

  • 4 more, plzzzzzz!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has 2 pf i.t has 2 pf lol.paybacks a b…..

  • Chipdip

    Yes sir!

  • Bearness

    That was like a karate kick. ROFL

  • JoeTeam

    trying being Lin for a sec and see if there’s something you’d need to do with this team D.

  • yup more pull-up Js will make Thomas try to hard to shoot

  • sws94

    But he isn’t penetrating, I want to see him get back to going to penetrating.

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    isaiah gets all types of funny calls

  • Bearness

    I thought you were going to stop watching. =P

  • Frank

    Look at those god awful screnns by the bgs

  • Chipdip

    Darn… have to give Kobe more minutes now…

  • blubell
  • sport

    lol Punk Bledsoe missed the layup on the fast break, haha that’s right you continue with your 0 point game! That’s what you get for pushing Lin last time!!

  • LOL

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Becos he really looks funny to me…

  • JoeTeam

    there’s your 30. 11 Q1, 5.5 Q2. … whatever …

  • Chipdip

    He could rest the rest of the game too…

  • Bearness

    Probably because he’s small.

  • sport

    Cheating refs thinks Thomas is the hall of fame Thomas SMH.

  • JoeTeam

    and TOV first play back.

  • or just play the last 4 min after 15pt lead

  • sport

    LMAO, Kobe can’t let Swaggy get all the glory.

  • Chipdip

    Yup,… all BS!

  • sport

    Young stayed in when Kobe came back in but didn’t get to touch the ball once, go figure!!

  • Frank

    One thing I like about this rotation is that
    nobody plays more than 30mins
    bench or starter playing timing times arent that different for PGs an other positions except Kobe

  • blubell

    All three guards in for PHoenix. interesting…

  • sws94

    No need for the starters, they don’t look good.

  • Frank

    actually once lol

  • blubell

    At least he’s not chucking.

  • Alaingrvis

    i don’t like it

  • Chipdip

    because the Lakers starters are slow and one of them is so old and needs a timeout to catch his breath…

  • Bearness

    Guess he’s not playing so “free” now.

  • sws94

    Dragic doesn’t look comfortable with this team. He may want to go elsewhere.

  • blubell
  • Yura

    benches are playing now

  • Frank

    I liked him until he had a breakout season lol
    think he got overrated

  • Chipdip

    I bet they called a timeout to let him catch his breath

  • Lin 7pts/1ast in 11 min

    7-11, baby!

  • JoeTeam

    that was so offensive when he said it that way.

  • with 1 starter, Ed Davis

  • kauaiblue

    Gk suns!

  • blubell
  • Yura

    they’re catching up quick……….all that work for nothing

  • sws94

    Price to Davis isn’t Lin to Davis. 2 times he called for it and Price didn’t get it to him at the right time..

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    2, 3 TVs don’t matter if you have to pay up for family time. But some here know, if the wife or kids wanna do their own thing, in modern day ‘merica, Daddies don’t matter. No big, we have bball hehe. It’s all the fault of the charmin ‘merican dads out there – you can’t be the boss anymore ha ha.

  • JoeTeam

    he’s unable to parse. Or, looking for his midJ.

  • Yura

    only if Byron Scott was smart enough to realize that

  • Bearness

    Oh look, it’s starters blowing the lead as usual.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    starters too slow for this line up

  • LAJane

    Glad he said it. I refrained from saying this myself. I’m starting to feel it’s better for my mental health not to outgas frustration….it’s like a negative feedback loop that keeps me feeling like there’s sand under my skin. Just get up and do something I like for 10 minutes and then come back and check in…ay ay ay…;p

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Poor baby seal…sweet,innocent baby seal

  • Chipdip

    The starters play like scrubs

  • Alaingrvis

    hahahahahaha

  • Yura

    jordan hill sluggish..kobe old.. price, not too sure about this guy lol

  • Alaingrvis

    not good

  • sport

    Didn’t get to shoot though LOL.

  • no basket

  • Chipdip

    Price did his usual scoring and is done for the game

  • blubell

    Baby seals paying the price…

  • sport

    This time not so lucky only 8 points LMAO.

  • JoeTeam

    I just want to see a few big seals lol.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I love baby seals… dang, Price!!!

  • Frank

    Damn dragic
    I traded him for Lin really hope he gets benched soon or struggles again

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    What’s the story about baby seals?

  • Chipdip

    Their specialty

  • sport

    Is it just me or are more people buying Maserati cars lately? What’s with all these commercials?

  • Promo Sports World

    Not seen as high class as before….shows you how many millionaires there are in America

  • Chipdip

    He is more frightened if Lin+Davis put on the show…

  • David Kim

    Lin to Price, Price to Clakson? LOL
    Scottt is clueless……

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    .. and from what I heard from some family members a good majority of Americans have financial problems now…

  • Yura

    WHY IS CLARKSON PLAYING ANY MINUTES…… makes me rage whenever I watch him play

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson didn’t play

  • Yura

    he played last two games no?

  • sport

    Clarkson can shoot and defend pretty well but he’s still a rookie, looks lost every time he’s on the court.

  • probably right if watching NBA makes them want to buy Maseratis.
    NBA where amazing happens!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    With KB on the floor is like a car running on 3 wheels instead of 4.

  • Chipdip

    Lakers Starters all -ve; bench all positive and led by Lin with +5

  • Brent Yen

    Less rolling resistance you mean?

  • blubell

    Stu… Jeremy has always been a good rebounding guard. Nothing deceptive about it.
    https://twitter.com/Librafree/status/549408503010312193

  • Chipdip

    Yes three wheels on three flat tires…

  • sport

    To be fair Led by Lin and Young, both created the lead for Lakers which will be lost by starters as always.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    More like a flat tire

  • JoeTeam

    very lost except when he makes a 1-1 run. He’s young so can have a good step on ppl.

  • hm, maybe that’s why he wants to be PG, not SG anymore.

    Can’t “Shoot” anymore, just want to “Point”!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL NBA with commercials for men – food and cars…

  • Sophie Paris

    IT is good shooter too

  • Yura

    never gives him credit

  • sws94

    Just 1 assist? Shoot, I wanna see him get both points and assists. Sometimes it is hard to get them with Young because he loves to dribble around and then just chuck them up.

  • JoeTeam

    just look up consumer debt in US and you get a sense the new age will come soon for people not addicted to the unimportant things in life.

  • maybe Stu’s eyes are easily deceived.

    Stu is a Decepticon :]

  • sport

    I was surprised by Lin’s handed rebound/tip-in! It’s a first but that’s what he needs to do, be near the rim in case his teammates miss.

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    Speed brings momentum

  • Frank

    Boozer’s sad you didn’t mention him

  • blubell

    He needs… Linception?

  • sport

    Stu’s a hater and in love with scrub price. At least he’s more bearable than 3 stooges at Rockets arena.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Make sense?

  • Brent Yen

    So…so far LAL has a worse starters and a better bench…let starters play more can lose more…..finally tank commander found how to easily lose or lose a lot….

  • Alaingrvis

    like lin cat like move cuz asian guy cant be outright athletic but deceptively athletic lol code words

  • Alaingrvis

    moves =speed. i remember people said it during linsanity

  • Yura

    if BS was in the right state of mind.. this could be a possibility

  • Chipdip

    The Lakers new motto: Winning is BS!

  • sport

    lol Cause it felt like Boozer completely disappeared when Young and Lin were making shots one after another. That was so much fun.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin did pretty good today….this game is already a satisfactory watch for me…

  • sport

    Calling it now, Kobe will lose this game but as long as 2nd unit and Lin get their rightful minutes, stats, and plays well I don’t care!

  • sport

    This game showed that when Lin’s teammates gets going and he’s the PG, the game opens up for him!!

  • sws94

    He’s not a hater, he’s just overdoing it when it comes to Price.

  • Chipdip

    I Thomas is so good! Wait… he is 4 for 6 in 16 min and a plus 2, poor Jeremy is 3 for 4 in 11 min and a plus 5. So Jeremy was superior????????

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • Singapore BB Fan

    NYK is not getting any better with D Fisher and P.Jackson.

  • Brent Yen

    This is the forth time IT did something bad on lin then complaint about it….I am keeping the counts here….

  • sport

    Yet calls Lin deceptive rebounder?! Right….

  • JoeTeam

    but Cole Aldrich is having 2 good games in a row!

  • sport

    Lin’s not on the court right now though.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    No, we shouldn’t compare JLin to a second string player.

  • Brent Yen

    I meant over the last there yrs..

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is pretty much perceived as at the same level as IT I think…..

  • MoominFloren

    Looks like Lin is doing pretty good tonight, even with a tip in!

  • JoeTeam

    somebody has to be a big …

  • Yura

    i wanna see more lin/davis show!!

  • JoeTeam

    coming soon to a theatre near you …

  • Frank

    Bledsoe dominating!

  • blubell

    Kobe ISO…tsk tsk tsk

  • Yascar

    Unfortunately. I think he is seen as less than IT. But I do think he is better. Now he needs to show everyone that.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I want to see more of Jeremy.. by more I mean MORE including….

  • Kobe with another unbelievably… bad shot selection!
    Who in the right mind would take off-balanced shot covered by 2-3 guys?

  • JoeTeam

    as long as lal treads water until 4 mins left in 3q

  • sport

    starters look more like the bench.

  • LAJane

    ;-D

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Cole (discarded by Rox) is only so so. Good rebounder but shooting 40% for this game against Portland. Still negative 21. Bad.

  • LAJane

    Isn’t that his favorite shot?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Deceptive!

  • blubell

    Up is down. Down is up.

  • Alaingrvis

    well

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Great coach with no time out.

  • Chipdip

    BS, may be time to bring the bench out to regain the lead?

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lol leave them out to dry

  • Alaingrvis

    getting too confident

  • BobbyH

    Suns playing fast. They are trying to drag down the old Lakers starters.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I feel bad for those spending money watching Kobe.

  • JC

    Does a lot of laker fans follow Lakers Nation?

  • blubell

    dry or cry?

  • Alaingrvis

    either or both

  • Lakers starters commited 11 out of 13 TOs as they lost the lead 63-67
    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/549414754826330112

  • blubell
  • PPP

    I like the suns announcers, pretty entertaining

  • JC

    No need to be, they still think kobe is bb God!

  • Alaingrvis

    you spent money to watch kobe?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Yes…till the wheels drop off..

  • LAJane

    He’s always hoping that somehow the first string’s genius just needs a few more minutes to catch fire….hahahaha

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW didn’t follow the last few minutes of 3rd qtr, and it was 65-73 when I checked in. Go starters!!!!! LOLOLOLOL

  • blubell

    Come on. Bring out the real starters!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOLOL If only BS is smart enough to do so.

  • JoeTeam

    I vote Lin in.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS pants catches fire before the starters catch fire.

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe 24 minutes

  • LAJane

    I’m glad he hasn’t called a time out. Ride Kobe like Secretariat and hopefully the wheels will come off sooner than later. I’m not saying really, really come off…just enough to get the clunker off the road. 🙂

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Needs a bigger hole…

  • Chipdip

    Kobe! Wow scores! keep him until the game over!

  • blubell

    The starters are coming in 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lin (me) now…

  • Yura

    bench being punished for playing better than starters

  • Yura

    finally!!

  • Lin back in with 3:19 in Q3

  • LAJane

    He’s put him in the 3rd Q late before…but we’re under 3 min now. Oops…just came in.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lins defense on Thomas was really bad. Turn it up Lin!

  • sport

    Not going to work with Kobe still in should take Kobe out.

  • GoodDayLA

    Been doing it for years.

  • JoeTeam

    right on time. Was hoping out of that TO, but this is ok.

  • sport

    Can’t 2 fouls already.

  • sws94

    Lin has to play better D. Don’t know what’s up with his D tonight.

  • JoeTeam

    Lin’s defense on Thomas was really good.

  • GoodDayLA

    Yes

  • Chipdip

    Yup… BS made sure Lin is cool off

  • sport

    Those 2 ticky tack fouls from cheating refs what else?

  • Brent Yen

    Seems ok to me.l.what exactly are u saying?

  • GoodDayLA

    Disagree respectfully, Agree with Yascar

  • I think he might’ve read @disqus_D7s5CnYDWA:disqus ‘s post about caring less on D to play more O :]

  • sws94

    Yeah, but he let Bledsoe go right by him. He has to be tougher, we’ve seen him play D much better.

  • JoeTeam

    biggest fail tonight, not Kobe. Hill.

  • GoodDayLA

    100% agree

  • sport

    Yes Kobe finally out!!

  • Keith

    Why is this guy still here?

  • Brent Yen

    That is like 80% of the games….

  • LAJane

    Hope so.

  • blubell

    333333!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lin for 33333333333!
    YEAH!!!

  • sport

    Yes 3 for Lin!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    3

  • LAJane

    Happy happy! Double figures at last.

  • Alaingrvis

    bledsoe a good defender watch out lin

  • JoeTeam

    true dat.

  • GoodDayLA

    I watched the first half, Lin was torched, the problem is Lin is not allowed to attack on offense. If Lin attacked IT would look like a scrub

  • Promo Sports World

    Good for jeremy

  • BobbyH

    A double digit drought is finally over. I would rather him play mini D to save for energy for his scores.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe already has 25 min.

  • LAJane

    Amen!

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe is God for bs

  • sport

    Is this Lakers homecourt or Suns? Certainly feels like the Suns homecourt with these cheating refs!!

  • Alaingrvis

    yep well we know he will get atleast 32

  • JoeTeam

    NO lin was not torched.

  • Chipdip

    The starters dug a hole, the bench now has to climb out from the deep, the usual Lakers senerio

  • Jerome

    what the heck davis pass back to Lin u scrub

  • sport

    That was a blocking foul on Bledsoe, he wasn’t even set!

  • yeah, I guess the difference is he made it in the past

  • sws94

    He’s not moving his feet well on defense. Last game he played good D, not this one.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lins only goal is to average 15 ppg off bench on this pathetic lakers team

  • Jerome

    Nah its plkay

  • Alaingrvis

    not happening

  • yess…smh

  • Jerome

    Big contract next year

  • Pete Roces

    Its really unfortunate for Lin to land in LA and has to play with 2 ballhogs. Nick young is following his mentor’s footstep once get the ball will never pass back even triple or quadruple team what a moron!

  • sport

    Then starters come back in and lose the game.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy has played a good two games just been in a month long shooting slump

  • Sophie Paris

    He can’t do much on a screen

  • JoeTeam

    just like last game. Lin plays in a league where moving screens and moving blockers are aok by the biased refs. Don fine me …

  • Brent Yen

    He turn around the screen as fast as any other guards out there..I think he is fine.

  • GoodDayLA

    I watched it and honestly he was, you are watching something else.

  • JoeTeam

    let’s kill the false narratives starting from the emphatic lies.

  • sport

    How many times have Lin been unfairly called for those charges when he’s shooting?! It’s ridiculous!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That’s right Jer…. embarrass that small man!

  • JoeTeam

    bro. not you. you’re cool.
    Lol maybe Lin needs to change his sneakers.

  • GoodDayLA

    There is no team ideal for Lin, maybe Spurs that’s it

  • JoeTeam

    moving blocks and screens are pretty hard to beat, esp if you breath you get 2 fouls.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin is 7 inches on Thomas. Must abuse him

  • sport

    JLin with 12 points woohoo! Lets go for 20 pts!!

  • Yura

    they need to pass more. theyalways shoot after 1-2 passes

  • LAJane

    Another fg. 12 now. Great! Let Kobe be the one with 5 assists…fine with me. Shoot the lights out Jeremy if you can get your hands on the ball.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW all isos and no ball movement.

  • JoeTeam

    dang game is a bit out of reach …

  • Jerome

    Lin is so good
    he’s a scorer

  • JoeTeam

    yes, I’m watching the LAL v Phx game. We are def watching different games.

  • Jerome

    Lin needs a defensive SG to play w/ him
    hmm shumpert?

  • sport

    But I’d take Young over Kobe, Melo, and Harden lesser of 4 evils.

  • JoeTeam

    swag is a joke a times, like his last ignore of the whole team and wayy off balance pullback.

  • Chipdip

    He just needs PnR with a big

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    me too, at least he’s not too serious about himself in the locker room.

  • Jerome

    hes so annoying i always hated him

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS is not stupid, those pay him are.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Never like his games

  • JoeTeam

    I think he’s fun sometimes, but I wouldn’t want to try to rely on him for a championship run. He’s fine this year.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s a good shooter, not a good scorer

  • Promo Sports World

    thomas and lin got no love out of college and both getting quality minutes in the league shows you how biased scouting is

  • Lin for 14pts!!!

  • sport

    Yes 14 pts now!! Go Lin!!!

  • blubell

    That was great 🙂

  • Lin just snatched the ball from Thomas’ hands :]

  • LAJane

    Woo hoo! Scr3w D. Shoot!

  • Yura

    starters doing work!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin rebound assist

  • JoeTeam

    Count it!

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin is 1 pt away from his goal! His only freakin objective is score!!!!!! 15 ppg keeps you relevant

  • Lin’s rebound led to quick transition to an acrobatic layup of Ellington!!

  • Weifang

    waiting for Kobe to finish the game.

  • sws94

    Now Lin is beginning to feel it. Nice. And yeah, great defense on IT on that drive.

  • Jerome

    just c*cky man

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    RESPECT! Coaches always do that when Lin gets hot, they called timeout.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy has played 2 good games in a row…Ellington was playing empty minutes before that bucket

  • Yura

    yea but once JLin gets hot, BS will bench him. sad truth

  • Chipdip

    BS! Don’t you take Lin off!!!! Don’t you dare!

  • sport

    So long as BS doesn’t do a switch a roo and make Ellington the starter and bench the 2nd unit!!

  • wow, Lin 6-8 FG

  • Brent Yen

    If I must say..I would say 17ppg

  • David Kim

    LIn 6-8 14 pts 1 blocks 2 assts in 19min

  • Alaingrvis

    he may lol it won’t matter the impact fealt

  • BobbyH

    You know BS….

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He will for he is BS:-)

  • LAJane

    I’m holding my breath! …as if that would help…;-)

  • Promo Sports World

    Hopefully he string some good shooting games together

  • Weifang

    game is over

  • sport

    Doesn’t look like it this game but I have no doubt starters will come back in with the benches’ lead and lose the game!!

  • Chipdip

    Oh… Kobe is back… oh boy

  • BobbyH

    Time for Kobe and the 1st unit to come in to save the game, for Suns.

  • blubell

    Worthy praising Jeremy!

  • sws94

    Worthy is now praising Lin saying he’s pushing the ball and he’s shooting well.

  • blubell

    A Worthy praise 🙂

  • Lin with great D on Dragic forcing him to give up the ball

  • Chipdip

    Yes indeed! BS, can you learn?

  • Promo Sports World

    Swaggy with a bad shot that went in

  • LAJane

    Y’know…fine. I’d like to root for a TEAM, but by now all I care about is Jeremy and tonight’s a good one for him.

  • MoominFloren

    Never…..

  • blubell

    Mini Kobe.

  • sport

    Cheating refs at it again!! Is this really Lakers homecourt?!

  • Chipdip

    His D is so good!!!!

  • JoeTeam

    Note, Lin blocked IT 1v1, on the other end, IT kicks it. That’s the difference.

  • BobbyH

    Lin will close?

  • Promo Sports World

    Boozer touchy bad

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL for the past interviews Swaggy was asking for ball movement.. to him?

  • Alaingrvis

    33333

  • blubell

    Linsanity!!111

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin

  • Dragic is like “Can’t get passed Lin today! SMH”

    Kobe playing no D

  • Yura

  • LAJane

    That’s a good thing!! Jeremy had a great night, and Kobe is not solving crimes…let the world see it once again.

  • Promo Sports World

  • Chipdip

  • IsabeliJane*17

  • LAJane

  • Alaingrvis

    funny observation lin plays more when kobe is there

  • sport

    Dude don’t jinx it!!!

  • Yura

    hey price needs to play defense…

  • Jerome

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He doesn’t need to be dared. He will do it at will:-)

  • sport

  • Yura

  • blubell

  • JoeTeam

    Note: That was Lin on D stopping the run 1 on 1

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin playing great this ISO ball is insane

  • Jerome

    This Swaggy Iso is annoying

  • JC

    Great block by Lin! Hate these hero balls

  • Alaingrvis

  • blubell

  • JoeTeam

    if they win, it’s forgivable.

  • Promo Sports World

    See what u did there

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Young ISO and Kobe ISO – same level of disgust

  • Alaingrvis

    aaahhhhhhhh

  • Promo Sports World

    Damn

  • blubell

    So close…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    AHHH SHUCKS!!!!!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    so close

  • sws94

    I thought that was in for sure.

  • sport

    That was so close in and out!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    In and out but it’s because he hasn’t seen the ball

  • Pete Roces

    They are the blackholes of LA. What a disgusting tandem! If only they know the concept of teamball, LA will be unstoppable.

  • Chipdip

    Speed! sit Kobe down please

  • Promo Sports World

    Morris boys can play good role players

  • Alaingrvis

    Top Performers

    PHX: E. Bledsoe 18 Pts, 8 Reb, 8 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk

    LAL: J. Lin 17 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk

  • Jerome

    Hope they lose thou if they keep going at swaggy
    he aint that good

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    w.e happens I’m happy

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That Dodge Charger in the commercial looks nice…

  • Brent Yen

    Late game ISO is like you do it every game…at some pts you made one. Then you think you can make it every game..

  • blubell
  • sws94

    Hey, Lin stepped up the D. Great plays in the 4th.

  • Pete Roces

    BS:mission accomplished, tank mode still on

  • Alaingrvis

    well

  • sport

    Kobe with the turnover SMH…

  • Alaingrvis

    thats all folks

  • JoeTeam

    phx so smart – prevents Lin from getting ball, Kobe TOV.

  • Yura

    commentators say nothing about kobe turnover

  • IsabeliJane*17

    ISO ball is soooo overrated. Still it’s being preached in majority of teams.

  • blubell

    nice 🙂

  • JC

    Gotta love lin’s stat pad lol

  • sport

    19 points for Lin!!

  • joyce ward

    Alsao how many minutes did Bledsoe play?

  • Pete Roces

    team concept basketball – spurs, rest of league – ISO

  • JoeTeam

    21 pts?

  • Chipdip

    Lin great game! Glad the LA Losers lost! BS coaching deserves it!

  • JC

    Loving it lol 20pt

  • Brent Yen

    hahahahaha

  • sport

    21 pts if Lin makes these FTs!! Darn he missed them!! =/

  • Alaingrvis

    nope lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    AHH SHUCKS THOSE FTs!!!

  • JoeTeam

    bummer.

  • blubell

    How does he miss both? 🙁

  • sws94

    Jeremy, why did you blow the chance to get 21?

  • Chipdip

    too tired … with all the defence work 🙂 haha

  • Alaingrvis

    really didn’t matter

  • sport

    It does for his stats to go back up!!

  • JoeTeam

    just being Christian … give them the other face.

  • he needed to make at least 1 🙁
    oh well..

  • Jerome

    Lin why u gotta mmiss both shots? like why?

  • sws94

    Lack of concentration there.

  • 1mtoldman

    hes afraid if he ties swaggy for most points he wont get 2 play again.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL JLin. You should get 21 pts and tie with NY. Wonder he did purposely so that he won’t be marginalized next game:-)

  • Yura

    are you serious jordan hill got 1 rebound, johnson got 4?

  • Alaingrvis

    happens. his focus less when team lost already

  • Chipdip

    haha… he does not want to get Kobe to yell at him later for scoring too many points!

  • sport

    My guess, he was too mad about the lost.

  • 1mtoldman

    thats 2 (at least) awwshucks)

  • knibb

    My life over the past 60 seconds:

    Switched on the game
    Saw the score 110-105
    Noticed the time remaining
    Saw Kobe and a TOV
    Switched off

  • LAJane

    and only 2 assists – is it wrong to be happy about that? So proud of the O.

  • JoeTeam

    wise you

  • sport

    Hill and Price shouldn’t be starters but that’s BS for you!

  • joyce ward
  • sport

    Man Lin why oh why did you have to miss those FTs!! You could’ve gotten 21 pts tonight!! Stop passing so much to Nick Young, he’s another black hole go for your own shots!

  • Jerome

    19

  • LAJane

    LOL! I get it…but Jeremy had a good game.

  • Alaingrvis

    19

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    you man chucky, right? lol

  • knibb

    That’s encouraging. I’ll just wait for the highlights.

  • Briiick

    Lin’s FG percentage is proportional to how important the shot is, a trait of clutch players.

  • 1mtoldman

    hes afraid if he ties swaggy for most points he wont get 2 play again.

  • Alaingrvis

    so the trade rumors….. thoughts

  • Jerome

    Lin kobe wesley boozer davis should start well davis is a scrub but better than hill and sacre

  • sport

    Lin could’ve tied Young for 22 points if he didn’t miss his 3 FTs! So frustrating.

  • joyce ward
  • David Kim

    The ability of playing PG
    Lin >>>> Kobe + Price + Clakson

  • blubell

    His free FTs are off lately.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin going to miami would be great for him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    anywhere.

  • Alaingrvis

    miami

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin only has 19 pts.

  • Brent Yen

    LAL have to build around Lin, Davis and Young to have a chance to get 30 wins.

  • Jerome

    not gonna happen

  • cshot

    i highly doubt there is any chance for him going there :/

  • JoeTeam

    guilty pleasures in life, chocolate.

  • sport

    Yea not sure why =/ Gotta make those freebies.

  • BobbyH

    We should see if this playing pattern, having Lin close continues.

  • blubell

    Not with Kobe around…

  • Jerome

    they should go for dragic next summer from basketball point of view
    and greg monroe

  • 1mtoldman

    lin shoots 8 for 11 from the field tonite. it must be that GIRLIE shot.

  • Sophie Paris

    It was a good game tho

  • Pete Roces

    Lin has to be the PG and play 30-35 mins per game together with Davis

  • Brent Yen

    Not sure how Dragic can fare in LAL system tho

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    Calling KHuang …

  • Briiick

    Kobe still needs to play fewer minutes, thought better than previous ones.

  • sport

    Dude that’s what I’ve been saying too but they can’t not with Kobe still around! And FO doesn’t have guts to trade Kobe to another team!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Spo is Asian could be barrier breaking match

  • Jerome

    not well but Byron cant mess with him so Lakers secured a legit PG as starter

  • joyce ward

    Why, he he is so negative?

  • Jerome

    and kobe gone in a year so itll be dragics team

  • Jerome

    LOL

  • Brent Yen

    He thinks Lin has a GIRLIE ugly shooting form….

  • David Kim

    Top Performers

    PHX: E. Bledsoe 22 Pts, 8 Reb, 8 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 Blk

    LAL: J. Lin 19 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk

  • Alaingrvis

    heat are in the playoffs. good to see lin in the east its like chopped liver for him.

  • LAJane

    calling a hall monitor…Disqus has me on hold again.

  • joyce ward

    I totally agree with you. personally think this lakers roster is very fluid.LOL

  • Jerome

    thats a lie derek fisher did

  • sport

    Everyone can see this except Kobe fans and BS.

  • Alaingrvis

    yet they went exclusively to young and kobe late

  • Brent Yen

    If he comes…yes..

  • Yura

    always getting punished. for everything

  • CJSHYY

    From ESPN?

  • Alaingrvis

    yes

  • sport

    Kobe shouldn’t have played those long minutes in 1st quarter! That was 11 minutes straight, BS is clueless!! How hard is it to spread his and bench minutes out evenly?!

  • David Kim

    yes

  • Jerome

    Lin PG Dragic SG will be deadly

  • JoeTeam

    Yep, just want him to own up to bias … we think Doc’s girls’ team can outshoot me for sure.

  • blubell

    With Kobe back, Jeremy’s assists suffers…

  • Brent Yen

    what did you say…I see nothing in the mod queue

  • sport

    2 years not gone until 2016.

  • Jerome

    Dragic is a humble guy like Lin if he and Lin shared the backcourt they will have great chemstry

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Done. Why in the world as that on hold, Disqus?!?!

  • Brent Yen

    I think Lin’s form can be better…but it is already pretty good. Not like Boozer…

  • Jerome

    including this year

  • sport

    Not unless Kobe is gone, along with BS. They need a young coach who knows what he’s doing not these outdated geezers who have no clue. I’d rather Lakers get a start PF to match with Lin! Dragic will just take the ball out of Lin’s hands again! No more playing with SGs!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Get Shumpert or Klay…

  • JoeTeam

    which caused this team to lose. LOL BSc … suppress Kobe minutes, but slow team down last 5 to give other team the advantage. Mastermind.

  • JoeTeam

    or Hill.

  • joyce ward

    But, but lin is the bench PG….just sayin….

  • blubell
  • LAJane

    It’s called sportscasting, but really its the entertainment industry. They tend to be bling wh*res, so they go with the colorful swaggy one and the superstar, natch.

  • Brent Yen

    But same old same old will happen…if Lin plays with another ball dom.

  • KHuang

    Trust me, Dragic is NOT HUMBLE.

  • Brent Yen

    Hill’s form is 100x better than Boozer’s LOL

  • occupatio

    9 turnovers tonight

    http://i.imgur.com/ZnA0g4e.gifv

  • KHuang

    Right here.

    MISSED FREE THROWS are due to BAD SHOOTING FORM.

    Lin still needs a professional shooting coach, one with NBA experience.

  • blubell

    Well, LAL’s starting PG disappears after a good 1st quarter.

  • blubell

    A bearded Kobe?

  • Alaingrvis

    those layup where lin jumps so high he touches the rim while laying it off. i wonder why he don’t don’t it. to be honest he just higher on layups then dunks

  • sport

    Does anyone know the exact month?

  • joyce ward

    I personally cannot wait for kobe to turn on Scott and blame him for his bad games, because it is coming.

  • blubell
  • LAJane

    Their commentators say they can’t afford him without getting rid of somebody they’d rather not get rid of.

  • Brent Yen

    OK……

  • occupatio

    good god. i cant stand this brownnosing fool

  • Jerome

    If Thomas and Bledsoe want to hug the ball, Dragic will let them like Lin does all lakers scrubs

  • IsabeliJane*17

    For someone who plays sports for a living, Harden is nowhere near an athletic physique.

  • sport

    30 minutes too little, at least 35 minutes and Lin should have that minutes clause in his next contract stating he needs to start and have at least 35 minutes per game!!

  • Brent Yen

    I think Less. I think Lin should play 32

  • blubell

    He’s got bag full of excuses for Kobe…

  • occupatio

    highlights pls…

  • Brent Yen

    He is not…

  • KHuang

    I stand by what I said.

    I don’t like Lin’s uncomfortable footwork, jerky release, or inability to hit shots when he gets his feet set.

  • occupatio

    i missed 3rd quarter. was that where lin’s pts mostly came from?

  • Jerome

    nah Dragic aint a ball hog Lin can get the ball out of his hands if Lin cant then hes gone lol

  • KHuang

    I’m a Phoenix fan and I assure you that is not the case.

  • Jerome

    until 2016 offseason

  • Alaingrvis

    4th

  • Brent Yen

    he is fine…just not perfect

  • Briiick

    The whole team has to slow down waiting for grandpa Kobe to catch up .

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    This probably is more on the coach anyway.

  • Jerome

    I thought that was the case at the beginning of the year when he struggled and forced me to trade him for Lin….

  • blubell
  • sws94

    Crazy thing is Bledsoe looked terrible the first half. Lin didn’t look that good until the 4Q. Lin should have had 22 points, he missed 3 FTs.

  • Brent Yen

    Of course..with/without him…does not matter. Per Lin

  • sport

    Not sure why Lin can’t do more dunks as well.

  • sws94

    That can happen, Scott isn’t safe even catering to Kobe so much.

  • occupatio

    to be fair, lin is the best inbounder though. and it IS possible, and common, to run plays for the inbounder. that’s where BS coaching really shows.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    except he is too short for inbounding I think…

  • sws94

    Yes, some. There were a few easy shots they missed Lin got to the big men. Even Ed Davis missed one.

  • occupatio

    the taller ones dont do it better. not on this team

  • blubell
  • sport

    Dragic is NOT humble. Have you forgotten how he complained about not making All-Stars? And his brother dissing Lin about him getting votes cause he’s Asian?!

  • sws94

    He’s an excellent free throw shooter. He just was off tonight for some reason.

  • LAJane

    He’s had a high percentage in the past. I don’t remember you talking about bad form before…do you think he’s regressed, or changed in some way? “Girlie” seems unexpectedly strong language….

  • Brent Yen

    Oh yeah…I meant just in general.

  • occupatio

    imagine wes inbounding the ball. haha

  • occupatio

    dragic is a dirty, cheap-shot player.

  • sport

    I’ve been saying how Lin should got to an Eastern team, no ball hogs and catering to fake or old stars! Also easier to get into Playoffs and finals!

  • blubell

    No wonder McHale liked him.

  • Brent Yen

    Well..on the very same team…..there is one even dirtier…so…

  • Alaingrvis

    miami could really use lin.outside of wade who is where kobe is in terms of being old but he is a lot better averaging 23 on 50 percent shooting. lin could beat out chalmers but even then. he is on a playoff team. please heat do this. they need another scorer. lin would really help them

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    he is right there lol

  • Brent Yen

    I usually will turn away when that happens…

  • Brent Yen

    Scott took every chances to cover Kobe’s deficiencies….it means someone is feeling the pressures too

  • Jerome

    He wasnt wrong
    He deserved more votes than Lin did

  • spiderman

    Scott: What you talkin about willis

  • joyce ward
  • Jerome

    Lowry

  • Briiick

    Blocking is a talent ! A lot of Bigs don’t have it.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward
  • blubell

    Davis is a blocker. Jeremy must have learned from his buddy 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m kinda jealous how Plumlee was manhandling Jeremy 🙂

  • LAJane

    Jeremy will never ignore D, but I was actually happy he seemed to focus more on offense tonight. Let Kobe carry some of the assist load and let Jeremy do some scoring. If the mamba’s too slow to strike, maybe he can contribute something useful with assists.

  • blubell

    They were combined for 40 points tonight off the bench.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    so the heat would have to trade chalmers to get lin. i would do it but yea its less likely. although. he would start if they did. chalmers shooting 40 percent and lost his job to coles who is worse. but illl believe it when i see it. but i would still do it in a heart beat if i was them

  • blubell

    Of course, the real Kobe Bryant would not tweet this lol
    https://twitter.com/not_the_mamba/status/549432705016819712

  • sport

    Lin shoots better when he has those rubber bracelets on, what do you guys think? This game he had 2!!

  • KHuang

    It looks as if Goran Dragic is pulling down Lin’s pants and Miles Plumlee is feeling Lin’s breast!

  • LAJane

    We were just praying he could get out of single digit gulag…and now 19 isn’t good enough LOL. I’m laughing at my greed 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I would probably feel him the same way and more…

  • LAJane

    thanks 🙂

  • blubell

    Lets keep this PG… and I don’t mean point guard.

  • JoeTeam

    then Booz’s scoring spurt is 100% due to Lin ha ha.

  • LAJane

    IsabeliJane*17 must have beat you to it…already cleared.

  • KHuang

    I’ve been calling Lin’s shot “girlie” on forums since 2012.

    I never liked Lin’s shooting coach Doc Scheppler who is a championship level girls’ coach who has taught Lin a girl’s shooting technique.

    I would prefer Lin to shoot a proper soft NBA shot using a man’s form, not a girl’s form.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Purple & Gold?

  • sport

    Could’ve been more if Lin made that clutch 3 and didn’t miss 3 FTs =/ That’s 6 points for 25 pt game loss! X(

  • Briiick

    Lin is very good at blocking, rebounding and stealing for his size. He used to consistently average 2+ steals and many rebounds per game in Rox until McHale stopped him and asked him to cover some Harden’s defense.

  • KHuang

    Pro players of Lin’s caliber need to get pro caliber shooting coaches in order to fulfill their All Star potential.

  • JoeTeam

    no foul of course.

  • JoeTeam

    now you know why I don wanna be Mod.

  • Sophie Paris

    Touching a boob xD

  • Alaingrvis

    honestly if lin got traded he would be lucky but teams my just wait for offseason to get lin cheaper. after the miami buzz thats a good option in the offseason

  • joyce ward
  • PHX PostGame Thread is now up!

    http://www.jlinportal.com/g31-phx-lal-postgame-thread/

    Congrats JLin for a strong game in both offense and defense!

  • JoeTeam

    stu: deceptive rebounding wha???

  • cali7

    Lin says he still believes he can do more for this team.

  • JoeTeam

    Byron talking about the fictions Kobe rewind 10 years.

  • Briiick

    McHale asked Lin to defend on the perimeter while Harden could just wait under the board to pad his RBs.

  • sport

    Lets hope Lin continues to have 3 or more blocks every game so he can average that for the entire season! These blocks will show he’s a great defender and shut those haters up about his “bad defense”. His stats are the only way he can disprove these bias announcers and haters!

  • JoeTeam

    I want to see this soon. Getting bored with the current script. Need a part for the cinderella who saves the kingdom.

  • JoeTeam

    yes, that’s fine. Girlie shots are probably not a good way to say it. Not PC. Just can see on my TV many women who can dominate me on the court even in my best years.

  • Philip

    HAhaha. But Lin looked painful.

  • Brent Yen

    Not that I disagree…I just feel there are some many “you are only as good as your last game” fans…

  • LAJane

    Oh. I remember those threads on the pros and cons of Scheppler. Just didn’t remember your position in particular… 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    and Bev.

  • Brent Yen

    Scott:”just bring it…on the bench…i am all for it”

  • Brent Yen

    Nah….I think Doc is fine….

  • JoeTeam

    I don’t think Kobe got any more D than Lin. For sure Swaggy got tripled on some of those ISOs. Think Kobe has to figure out a new game to help team close it out, including being positive so people can step up without fear.

  • LAJane

    Kobe doesn’t really care about anyone but himself, so I don’t think Scott’s mini-me role would save him from getting dumped on. But I don’t think Kobe will blame him ’cause there’s not much to blame. Kobe is the one who determines his usage, no matter what BS’s blah blah blah is. And he’s the one who determines everyone else’s usage too…he does run the team after all. It’s not that Scott is safe…it’s just that to Kobe he’s kind of irrelevant.

  • Philip

    Then Dragic ‘s fans can vote for him. Nobody stops them. You can’t complain because another players has more fans and more votes than you. Dragic and his brother should complain Dragic’s fans for not voting for him.

  • Brent Yen

    3 blk for a PG is not realistic and not worth it..

  • cshot

    he always wears those haha. i have one too actually. its from active faith and it says, “in jesus name i play.” more of just a reminder of who he plays for and display his faith. not anything that fixes his form or anything hah

  • sport

    Not playing 11 minutes straight for 1st quarter and spreading his minutes evening would’ve helped Kobe save energy for 4th quarter!

  • sport

    Lin did it these past two games, maybe he can continue blocking shots and be known for his defense. That’s the only way people will see him as a great defender, stats.

  • sport

    I’m just thinking the fact he’s wearing something on his arms with that touching sensation might make a difference just like when we get injured we touch the wound/painful area to help make it feel better.

  • grover chang

    Why do I keep seeing post on Lin and Miami. Was there some trade rumor I missed?

  • grover chang

    I think hardens game is boring to watch but I’ll give him credit in that he is very efficient and the rockets are doing well with him leading. It didn’t have to be like this. Egos aside he and Lin could have been one of the best backcourts around even their first season together.

  • Jeremiah

    psalm, since Google’s search engine uses clicks (popularity) to help guide it, the full jeremylinportal.net name will have more effect if people actually use it. I think one way to get that going is if you use it in the links you provide for the new threads. Also, I typed in jeremylinportal.net to get here but of course the browser immediately reverts to jlinportal.com.

  • hm, thank you.. perhaps new thread links will work well :]
    I’ll give it a try

  • Michael

    Hahaha. That is so wrong.
