G31 PHX @ LAL PostGame Thread
Lin came through with a strong game with 19pts/2asts/3rebs/2blk/1stl/2TOs in 26 min. He could’ve reached 21pts but missed 2 FTs late in game, probably lost concentration in a sure loss. He probably knew he needed to make at least 1 of them but he played great defense so it could’ve been a fatigue plus lack of concentration.
He also played strong defense that combined with strong offensive game made Byron leave him to close the game with Kobe.
Kobe didn’t make good decisions late (5TOs) in game causing the Suns to pull away but such was the scenario to make Kobe the hero of the game. It failed as many have come to expect.
Great job, JLin!
