G33 MEM @ LAL Game Thread

First game of 2015 for Jeremy. Let’s hope he will play freely and joyfully that his performance will reflect that no matter how many minutes Byron Scott gives him.

Go JLin!

    No wonder in BS’ eyes, KB can do no wrong. Really blind dad spoils his child to no end!!!

  • JoeTeam

    oh gawd, that son thing again.

  • sws94

    Not cool, he’s a coach. He has to work with all of his players. He shows too much favoritism.

  • joyce ward

    I think I just threw up in my mouth..smh

  • Jeremiah

    Of course BS. Without your “son” Kobe you’d never have a chance to coach the Lakers.

  • Jeremiah

    You read my mind!

  • JoeTeam

    hehe, not only in coaching but also with the trolls lol.

  • Jeremiah

    Ya think?

  • LAJane

    The sad part of that is that he believes that might have any real emotional meaning to Kobe…other, perhaps, than irritation at the patronizing tone of it.

  • JoeTeam

    too right mate ! as the Aussies say. Kobe doesn’t seem to need or want a father figure.

  • sws94

    I definitely did.

  • JoeTeam

    yet another proof point on now well JLin is doing despite coach, Kobe, and team freeze-outs … check out Brandon Wright’s production falloff since going to BOS from MAVs. He used to get over 2x the minutes, and now when he’s in, he’s very inconsistent on half the minutes. I would imagine this team doesn’t know how to work with him yet, and the chemistry has to built. On LAL, it’s pretty much set – get your own, or get it off Jeremy.

  • CJSHYY

    So now what? Family business?! smh! Scott is really sick person.

  • LW

    BS is sucking up to Kobe (his boss) without any shame!

  • MoominFloren

    Disgusting

  • Sophie Paris

    In the mean time in New Orleans… Pelicans are crushing the Rox 😀

  • occupatio

    im watching it too haha

  • Sophie Paris

    NO kings of blocks ^^

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Singapore BB Fan

    Cut all this b.s. and start coaching the team…

  • occupatio

    lin sure has had to deal with many father-son relationships.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Looks almost like a flattop (a la Iman Shumpert) but I guess it’s just the angle of the photo.

  • Jeremiah

    Rox are shooting 37%. It’s like a team full of Kobes.

  • 1mtoldman

    rockets have missed 21 3’s thru 3 quarters. wonder what the record is for most missed 3’s in a game?

  • joyce ward

    What an amazing young man. through it all he still just keeps pushing the envelope.You gotta respect that about him.(also he ain’t to bad on the eyes:)

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    We need more people like you Joyce. You judge someone as who he is not skin color or culture back ground.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Very similar like the Knicks after Linsanity.

  • Briiick

    It’s about time for the epic late season fall very characteristic of McHale’s coaching.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Anyone helped me getting millions dollars job, I call him or her whatever they want.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Perfect in one word.

  • joyce ward

    It is interesting that I grew up in the south and saw a lot of racism. My mom always told us to judge everyone by the person that they are. It didn’t matter what the skin color was. I went off to collage and joined the militarily to pay off college loans and I met so many people people of various backgrounds and culture and it was an easy fit for me, because my mom had taught me so much about not judging people based on a stereotype. But Thank you anyway. I give all the props to my mom in how I turned out.:)

  • JoeTeam

    You’re right. I asked the concierges at GSW if it’s ok to get autographs during warmups, and they said the players are under contract so they only do it if they want to. Every game, someone tweets Lin signing. Do y’all know how it is, to get an autograph? I sort of want to get one for my son next time. Time to get him some wall posters besides Disney!

  • JC

    Good to know

  • Jeremiah

    Go Rox! Lol

  • joyce ward
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    My pleasure Joyce, I only said what I read from your many comments. Again, mom is always the best. Can’t imagine without her in anyone life.

  • CJSHYY

    Feel a lot better now… LOL! Smith only played 5 min before trash time in 4Q… Looks like Rox didn’t like him that much. DM played well.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • joyce ward

    She was so awesome ans very calculating and very funny at the same time. I remember when me and my sisters turned 15, 16 and 17 and she put us all on birth control pills. She made us take them every morning with her standing over us giving us the pills and making sure we swallowed them. Her saying was I trust my girls, but not the boys they come in contact with, so I want my girls prepared.LOL

  • KHuang

    With a smart mom like that, bad boys had NO CHANCE with you girls even if the pills were placebos!!!

  • JoeTeam

    wow, your mom care and gave freedom at the same time. Respects.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • joyce ward

    You know a lot of my friends got pregnant while in high school. None of us did and we graduated college with no babies in tow.

  • @joeteam:disqus, you need to come to the game early before shoot-around and wait at the tunnel of the visiting team. If players want to stop by to sign (which Jeremy usually does), then that’s the best chance to get autographs.

    All the best for you :] Make sure it your son is with you so his wait would be rewarded

  • Hip hip horray for Joyce’s mom :]
    She must’ve taught you a lot of wisdom throughout the years

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Stalk them players in the hotel…

    Joke. I think you have a better chance waiting in the tunnel though, as @psalm234:disqus said.

  • wow.. your mom must’ve thought either her girls want to prove to her the boys got no chance or her insurance plan is good :]
    Wise mom!

  • JoeTeam

    Ah, that’s it. When the enter. Ok. good tip on waiting with the kids.

  • joyce ward

    I always told her that she was way ahead of her time, she said no, that she did things that made sense. She told us girls that she could give the speech about keeping your virginity for the right man, but she said that would go right out of the window with our youth generation, so she taught us to make informed c choices, besides my mom was in her earlier 40’s when I was in high school and the word grandma was not a part of her vocabulary.LOL.

  • but remember it’s very early before the shoot-around

  • joyce ward

    Yes as I look back on it now, she used a lot of wisdom when it came to us girls. Most of the time we thought she was trying to spoil our fun, but she was thinking about our future.

  • joyce ward

    Yes she did. Whenever I thought I had an amazing idea about something, and she would listen and ask me to repeat what I just said with my listening ear and see if it made sense. She would have me pick apart the things that would work and not work.

  • John Lee

    Two years too late…

  • JoeTeam

    I’m going to try that, that’s very good!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Interesting to see Lakers used JLin’s pic quite a bit. Is the org wanting to tell JLin’s fans something???

  • First game in 2015!
    Let’s go, JLin!

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lets hope for a good game

  • Brent Yen

    Ballstream is slow…the site is weird….m…

  • JoeTeam

    V smart lady. You prob got your common sense from her. In my family, my dad was the one who taught that. I was changing out drive shaft bearings by myself by 13. Immigrants, we had to do everything around the house ourselves. That I think kids these days don’t get, a sense of how to do things for themselves. Your mom not only protected you, but she gave you some great thinking tools!

  • TTNN

    now you said it, it is down now. 🙁

  • blubell

    working now.

  • TTNN

    okay, going back….

  • JoeTeam

    so about 430p for a 6 shoot around?

  • that’s definitely one parenting gem worth keeping :]
    Thanks for sharing more of your mom’s wisdom.

  • joyce ward

    Joe it is so amazing when you have to repeat your ideas out loud and have them analyzed. She would ask me very pointed questions in which sometimes I didn’t have the answer and then she would give examples of of if it was her, how she would handle it. She never suggested that I should do this or that, because she said it was it was my idea and that I was smart enough to work out the kinks to make it it happen. Sometimes I was so frustrated with her that I wanted the answer and she would make me work it out on my own.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • IsabeliJane*17

    I hope tonight will be a good game. I have a 100 grams box of Toblerone to go with this game. (There’s NO WAY I’m giving up chocolate this 2015)

  • John Lee

    Thanks, just puked some of my breakfast

  • JoeTeam

    That’s great, a modified socratic method so you were committed and bought in, and you needed her help rather than fighting her. I really am going to try to remember that for sure. I tend to try to coach by giving the way, and while I really want to see ppl free to choose, your mom’s way is way better than mine which is supportive and I will not give the answer now that I see how easy that could be, to make the less experience desire the help. Yep, keep schooling me 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    thanks, ballstream is back.

  • MoominFloren

    Trade season is not over yet….

  • joyce ward

    Joe Team, I think you are pretty awesome with your common sense. I love the fact that you don’t get caught in the drama that ensues on this site sometimes. I like your level headiness and your calming demeanor. I will say that you , brent and Psalms24 are the calming factions on this site.

  • joyce ward

    That was my mom…

  • joyce ward

    So was lin and kobe were the key players?

  • Alaingrvis

    goaltending

  • blubell

    Davis must have heard Scott planning to cut his minutes for Kelly lol.

  • TTNN

    Hill is not good today somehow

  • Price just bounced-pass the ball to Conley’s ankle

  • blubell

    Nice move by Conley 🙂

  • John Lee

    Good aim, elite PG.

  • TTNN

    Price take too much risk, bad defense

  • sooo.. consistent (said BScott)

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Marc bleeding…

  • so… not a model of consistency? :]

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    Last year JLin held Conley SCORELESS, haters are so stupid.

  • joyce ward

    Lin needs to come out wit guns blazing!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    not that type of player

  • JoeTeam

    well thank you. I think I object to trolling at times, so I appreciate your feedback. Some days, I don’t really want to see it and wish I had the Mod button but lol I’d better not have it.

  • Did Price’s defense just spearhead Gasol’s bleeding eyes?

  • Chipdip

    One against Five and four additional big boys watching…

  • Chipdip

    Good defence!

  • JoeTeam

    oh yes he is … 2.5 min runs. 2 pts with 3 sec left on half, etc etc.

  • JoeTeam

    lin on!

  • Chipdip

    Ed Davis! Great game so far….

  • Alaingrvis

    no he is pg who can score

  • blubell

    OOO… early substitution.

  • Lin is in with 5:18

  • Chipdip

    Sit that Kobe down please… he needs a break.. come on…

  • LW

    The best place for Lin to be at Lakers right now is the bench because Kobe has decided to change his game and be a PG!

  • MoominFloren

    wow…what happen?

  • blubell

    Nice D.

  • yes, made Conley gave up the ball

  • Alaingrvis

    nothing

  • Brent Yen

    What happen to price?

  • JoeTeam

    Oh, 2 D, 2 O. Lin helped 2 stops. not used on the 2 Os.
    That right? I’m gonna keep track as much as I can (family time right now).

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Did MMA with Marc…

  • JoeTeam

    Even BETTER! PG who comes out LINNING!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL Future Laker? hahaha

  • Alaingrvis

    nothing just subbed him out early

  • I’m thinking BScott thinks Price is over-aggressive on D and not scoring points.
    But not sure..

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    I think Price wasn’t effective in defense?

  • Chipdip

    Yes LIN!!!!!

  • TTNN

    yes!

  • blubell

    but no whistle?!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That was some yummy acrobatic scoring…

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe’s length really opens a lot of angles for him to pass

  • Chipdip

    of course NOT 😉

  • blubell

    That was a nice fake 🙂

  • Chipdip

    Haha… Kobe the PG!!!! throw the ball hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    what was that

  • Brent Yen

    This happens to lin a lot I feel

  • blubell

    butterfingers.

  • Chipdip

    Nick you ball hog… good shot!

  • Brent Yen

    Nick young needs to hit the roll man more

  • Chipdip

    yup… he missed

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Young’s shot selection…. ugh…

  • Chipdip

    Again he missed … ball hog Nick

  • blubell

    OMG. PASS.

  • Chipdip

    Jeremy is so fast….

  • blubell

    Wooo hoooo!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy on a fast break…. oooh

  • Chipdip

    Unbelievable… but actually he was forced to pass

  • Brent Yen

    Lin with the after burner….wth with that speed…wow..

  • Alaingrvis

    when he confidence is shaky but that particular play happens. move along folks

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Linstant after-burner! :]

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Second shot was fine, he aim for a two for one.

  • I see Gasol’s arm on Lin’s head?

  • Chipdip

    Keep it up Jeremy! great shot

  • Chipdip

    Jeremy!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blubell

    LInsanity!!

  • TTNN

    yes!

  • Chipdip

    Again!!!!

  • Lin dove to the floor and the crowd went wild! 😀

  • blubell

    On Fire!

  • Chipdip

    We WANT MORE! Keep shooting!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It looked like he just threw the ball but it counted and it may look like a bad shot to a lot of people but who cares since it’s Jeremy Lin who did it!

  • Jeremiah

    Lin obviously needs to be benched.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    threw what

  • LW

    Lin just produced another espn highlight!

  • Lin a perfect 4-4 in 2015 with crowd-pleasing diving ball for the assist!
    Happy New Year 2015, Jeremy!!!

  • Brent Yen

    I am kind of annoyed by how tweeter ppl only judge a shot is good or not by it was made or miss.

  • 1mtoldman

    rite ronnie price is much more consistent. a consistent ten year scrub.

  • blubell
  • Joe what do you know

    Jeremy’s new year resolution must have been making BS look like a fool. Well done my boy!

  • Chipdip

    haha

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy’s HOT…. shooting right now

  • joyce ward

    Brent don’t go there, keep your focus. I have learned on twitter to chew up the meat and spit out the bones,,huh..

  • blubell

    Nick Young actually passed lol

  • Brent Yen

    I guess this is what Scott don want…

  • Alaingrvis

    first time this year i see lin is hot and he keeps being aggressive

  • MoominFloren

    Not only shooting ; )

  • joyce ward

    lin is sayin f** k Scott, he is going to play his way>>LOL

  • blubell

    Why is young shooting that?

  • Brent Yen

    Good for him as long as he can make the shots

  • joyce ward
  • Promo Sports World

    At my first warriors game and jlin goes off might have to move to the east bay

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I actually like Prius.

  • Brent Yen

    Is this considered a racism?

  • blubell
  • JJ Hui

    Fun and exciting without slow old man KB! LOL!

  • blubell
  • blubell

    uh oh. 2 fouls.

  • Alaingrvis

    memphis defense is up

  • Brent Yen

    LAL’s PNR does not have spacing..

  • blubell

    So Hot…

  • Lefty Lin!!!

  • joyce ward

    Lin will figure it out

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy on FIYAH!!! I want that heat!

    The Boy on Fire.

  • blubell

    Lefty lay-up 🙂

  • Chipdip

    Nick… that shot was awesome!

  • Brent Yen

    I hate to say it…but LAL really should not run PNR when it is boozer

  • Chipdip

    Lin it up! Keep Linning!

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Lin would have to have about 5 turnovers already if he were to switch identities with Kobe!

  • joyce ward
  • yes, yes,.. breathe, Sista :]

  • blubell

    lol.

  • Brent Yen

    Ur profile pic really looks great…lol

  • Alaingrvis

    lol lin with 8 shots 1st half

  • blubell

    I need to slow down my breathing… lol.

  • JoeTeam

    go GSW!

  • MoominFloren

    I should stay home and watch this game…..

  • blubell
  • spiderman

    actually like this line-up. Kobe and Nick aren’t chucking away

  • joyce ward
  • JoeTeam

    No, because poster knows differences between Asians lol.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward
  • Brent Yen

    This is what said about footwork, tony can not be worse…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ok I’ma go read something else. Price is in…

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Kufos is underrated.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin for the first time most minutes from the bench

  • 4 times he blew it.. wow

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Rim: “Not in my basket!!!”

  • JJ Hui

    wow! commentator praised Lin 13 min 13 points and said he would get standing ovation!

  • JoeTeam

    Hey Guess what, Rose is at LAL tonight with her kds. Saw that on .net last night. She said look for her on the sidelines.

  • joyce ward

    Lin got 13 pts…YAY

  • cshot

    i like the grizzlies commentators better than the lakers announcers…..

  • Alaingrvis

    yep or any opposing commentator. i enjoy games a lot more

  • in 13 min :]

  • Brent Yen

    He has to stutter his steps in fast break,,,very bad

  • Brent Yen

    Hill is just bad….why can he not just move with Gasol with his hands up?

  • Dorothy

    wow, have not heard from her for a while

  • JJ Hui

    See how BS make sure he splits Lin and Davis not on the court together, he is so afraid of the Linsanity showtime especially Lin is hot!

  • Alaingrvis

    rim block him 3-4 times on one shot

  • Brent Yen

    I think it is more about it will let Kobe look good

  • KHuang

    If Lin’s lucky, he might get a whopping 24 minutes this game!!!

  • Brent Yen

    U r right

  • MomentousPetey

    Hello Sherlock!

  • Alaingrvis

    ryan kelly in the game

  • JJ Hui

    Yes, both i guess! Make sure no Linsanity and make sure KB looks good! He make sure he makes KB happy!

  • Brent Yen

    Kelly with solid box out

  • Chipdip

    rest Davis so he can play with Lin…. I am dreaming

  • IsabeliJane*17

    For someone coming out from injury, he boxes out better than the playing bigs

  • joyce ward

    This almost as bad as a bad Hollywood script. As I ststed before a friend of mine who was a die hard Laker and is fed up with kobe. He tried to trade him to another die hard laker fan in fantasy league and they would not take him.LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Price just made a bad read.

  • Briiick

    A taste of Linsanity ! That happens when the leash is loose and Lin doesn’t worry about having to take the spotlight from KB.

  • spiderman

    just don’t re-injure the hamstring

  • Brent Yen

    Nice…..

  • Chipdip

    Hey Kobe nice play, you can take the half off …

  • blubell

    happy for Kelly

  • Brent Yen

    That Kelly lay up had me worried a bit

  • I am The Jason

    This game is proving Lin should embrace Linsanity and not run from it

  • joyce ward
  • Brent Yen

    Hahaha this just too funny.

  • blubell

    To be fair, LAL announcers were actually nice today.

  • joyce ward
  • KHuang

    Player of the game: JERRYD BAYLESS.

    In previous years, Bayless would be brought in off the bench to go against Lin 1-on-1.

    Lin and Bayless would play to a standstill in Memphis Rockets games. But those days are OVER because Bayless was unceremoniously ejected via trade!

    No way Lin shoots 6-8 with Jerryd Bayless dogging him on the court!

  • especially when Lin dove to the floor for the great assist to Ellington!

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Seem like JLin plays more min when he plays in LA than away games.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    not happening

  • It was good that Lin tried to force the pass (almost a TO) to Kobe in the last possession so Kobe knows Lin wants to feature him too.

  • blubell

    Dont be a debbie downer… lol

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Jeremiah

    Kobe is so inconsistent. Price OTOH is VERY consistent.

  • blubell
  • 7iger

    But what he said is true.

  • blubell

    I know… *sigh*

  • blubell
  • joyce ward
  • Sophie Paris

    Pleasant half !!! 😉

  • KHuang

    I wrote that the better the opponent, the better Lin plays.

    That’s not because Lin plays any differently. Lin’s the same no matter who the opponent is.

    It’s because when the Lakers face a powerful opponent, their players lack the individual talent to get the job done and so they turn to Lin to save the team. And Lin ALWAYS delivers.

  • JJ Hui

    I think i saw Jeannie Buss in the audience.

  • JoeTeam

    hehe

  • blubell

    From Silver Screen & Roll?

  • Briiick

    When LAL reach their potential with JL being THE PG and Kobe in a less selfish mode, they should be able to beat most teams in the league and get to the playoff without much struggling. That is similar to what Lin thought before he got benched.

  • blubell

    The crowd loved it 🙂

  • The only thing that Kobe is consistent has been wanting to be the Hero!

  • Brent Yen

    Yes! I got a mention!!! lol

  • Briiick

    Well said!

  • joyce ward

    Yep, they are known lin haters

  • TTNN

    they are.

  • Alaingrvis

    you know i have to say since he was bench i was pissed and didn’t care when he didn’t score as long as lakers sucked. i need to change that way of thinking. its about lin succeeding even if it means lakers win. i hope he score double figure from now on

  • KHuang

    Typical LARRY BIRD play by a player with equal court awareness to the great Bird.

  • Chipdip

    I love it too … hahaha

  • JoeTeam

    I’m not mad. Someone else has him in fantasy hehe

  • JJ Hui

    May be because a lot of people tweeted Jeannie Buss about the unfairness of BS towards Lin!

  • occupatio

    Lin blocked Allen but lakers announcers said nothing, even after seeing it again on the replay.

  • Briiick

    Very likely.

  • Brent Yen

    Gameplans like DEN will still happen. Bad shooting nights will still happen. I am ok with his every game…really. He tried.

  • spiderman

    …and he can be a hero if he played the right way & empowered Lin

    but not bright enough

  • Alaingrvis

    still cant avrage 6 ppg

  • Brent Yen

    Well..I hope not…either…LOL

  • Chipdip

    OK… Lets sit our hot guy on the bench and see if the Grizz can come back….

  • Alaingrvis

    hopefully he gets it going average 11-12 on 22 minutes per game

  • Briiick

    WOW!!!

  • KHuang

    Somebody on the Lakers worked with Lin on his jump shot form.

    Lin is FIRING, and it’s because he’s got his footwork right.

    Now Lin’s getting proper elevation and extension, sort of like Linsanity but even better.

    If Lin shoots with this flawless form, I’ll never complain about his bad technique ever again.

  • Guest

    ellington has springs

  • Brent Yen

    He is fine…not good to have high elevation either….

  • yes, that was so obvious not to mention Lin’s good play.
    The bias to support BScott decision was too much

  • Brent Yen

    Grizzlies is able to slow the game down…not good for LAL

  • KHuang

    I wasn’t talking about the height of Lin’s jump.

    I was talking about how Lin recently had a hitch in his jump shot that was messing up his open looks.

    That hitch is GONE, and so is Lin’s bad shooting!

  • occupatio

    what position does Black play?

  • Brent Yen

    I really don see that hitch. But if you are happy, that is good!

  • Brent Yen

    PF?

  • blubell

    I take back what I said about LAL announcer being nice to Jeremy today lol.
    https://twitter.com/ianeBeE/status/551240145752842240

  • occupatio

    why is he not getting minutes with hill in foul trouble?

  • Brent Yen

    Too new I guess

  • Brent Yen

    Kudos to Price….

  • occupatio

    kobe is not guarding ANYONE. he is just walking around

  • blubell

    And Stu goes on and on praising Price. haha.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • blubell

    One of the few mistakes… says Stu regarding Price. lol

  • Brent Yen

    He pretends he is daring ppl to shoot…..happens all the time

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So why does Davis just have to squeeze himself next to Jeremy?

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe’s D effort is pethetic

  • occupatio

    that allen layup was totally on kobe.

  • Chipdip

    OK the test of sitting your hot guy down not working. Grizz is back. BS coaching in action!

  • Brent Yen

    His previous misses on him too I guess…Just thanks to Allen….LOL

  • JC

    Jlin with the most shots at half time!! So is that why he got benched?

  • Alaingrvis

    push off lol

  • Brent Yen

    Of course….he has to get his teammates involved…

  • Alaingrvis

    he didn’t bigs came in because of foul trouble

  • MomentousPetey

    starters, starters….,,starters..,,..WE TALKIN BOUT STARTERS!

  • orLinaryjoe

    he’s very good at that. needs no practice.

  • occupatio

    kelly is jumping forward on his catch and shoot.bad

  • blubell

    Boozer specialty.

  • MomentousPetey

    Byron Scott’s “starters” losin the lead,…. YAAAAWWWNNN MFER!

  • Brent Yen

    Most ppl do that…but he he did it too much

  • orLinaryjoe

    Have to sit him down. Getting too hot.

  • TTNN

    that’s pretty risky though, if he did not get that steal, he will be really off position….

  • occupatio

    hes prolly nervous.

  • blubell

    Time to bring in Lin but he scored too much in the first half…

  • Brent Yen

    Not in rhythm for sure…did not miss by too much tho

  • Chipdip

    Lin’s fault

  • occupatio

    BS conundrum

  • Jeremiah

    He learned that from Harden.

  • Brent Yen

    Nice pass….Kelly’s pass was off..

  • KHuang

    Lin to be BLAMED by Scott if this game loses.

  • TTNN

    lol, Stu “good defense of Price”, and Conley shake of Price and lay up.

  • Brent Yen

    When the game is on the line, Lin has to sit

  • occupatio

    lin hasnt seen the floor all quarter

  • blubell
  • JJ Hui

    BS trying to lose? Weak Kelly and weak Price in there?

  • KHuang

    It’s called TYPICAL ANTI ASIAN MEDIA GARBAGE.

  • Brent Yen

    haha

  • BobbyH

    Lin to close?

  • KHuang

    No, Scott is trying to WIN.

    Price is the SAVIOR according to Scott.

  • blubell

    So the early substitution in the first quarter was a fluke. It was a beautiful mistake by BS. lol.

  • joyce ward

    Is Nick Young out there?

  • KHuang

    NOPE.

  • Brent Yen

    Uldrich is smart

  • occupatio

    this is like a mchale rotation. lin wont be back until conley does i guess

  • Brent Yen

    THis is getting ugly

  • joyce ward

    Lin got his points

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    It’s not really funny, but HAHA anyway!

  • JJ Hui

    BS really knows how to lose games without Lin!

  • occupatio

    wes doesnt even chase the ball. disgusitng

  • 7iger

    He forgot his med on the first half so he mismanage the time.

  • Alaingrvis

    no they will be in next

  • Brent Yen

    THe official reason will be ” I think Price had a good game, Ded Conley well”

  • TTNN

    yeah.

  • Guest

    Stu pays Ronnie for a chance to smell his farts

  • JC

    lin wouldn’t get more minutes even if he outplays everyone on the court! That’s bs

  • Alaingrvis

    this is by far the least effort I’ve seen kobe play tbh since his return from injury his effort is way down

  • MomentousPetey

    ROFLMAO!!!

  • KHuang

    Lin being PUNISHED for playing like Michael Jordan!!!

  • occupatio

    worse, he has no clue where the ball went. guy is so stupid.

  • Brent Yen

    Haha I guess…..he has a cap on production I guess

  • Linja

    Stu knows who is paying him. He owes to KB and BS.

  • JC

    Expected!!

  • Chipdip

    BS!, Admit it! You need Jeremy! Accept it!

  • TTNN

    Kobe is still playing?

  • BobbyH

    25 mins

  • TTNN

    oh, FT

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin in. Go get some!

  • Chipdip

    MAN!!!!!!!!

  • JC

    Price is still playing!!

  • blubell

    I love it!

  • TTNN

    yes!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    BURN BS!!!! BURN!!!!!! Steal + layup!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Coast to coast after steal!

  • Brent Yen

    KELLY does not ball watch

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Keep shooting , attacking….

  • Chipdip

    great!!! Kobe is off! have a nice long rest!

  • Brent Yen

    That was not Lin’s spot for high %age shot IIRC

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    R. Kelly “not the Ignition guy” would like to apply as Jeremy’s new BFF.. joke!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The father makes sure his son out score the asian guy. Otherwise….

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe 27 minutes pass his limit today

  • JJ Hui

    Kellshould sit and Davis should check in, dumb BS!

  • JC

    If jlin gets treatment as kobe or price he would get 30+tonight

  • occupatio

    lin not doing well against udrih.

  • joyce ward
  • Chipdip

    More Lakers fans speaking out!

  • Brent Yen

    That is what happen when there is no force in the paint.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    why is that sherlock

  • cshot

    jeremy lin is freaking fast… i believe the ppl who say he’s faster than wall…

  • 7iger

    So much of limiting Kobe minutes

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Yes, but he has to trail the play anyway. If it was one on one….then it would be really bad

  • JC

    Haven’t see anyone could chase up to jlin

  • orLinaryjoe

    Doh. Sat most of 3rd. BS.

  • JJ Hui

    Hope Mike Trudell knows how dumb BS is!

  • golfhacker

    Udrih is not a good 3pt shooter. Lin should go under the screen.

  • Jeremiah

    Yep his witching hour is fast approaching!

  • Chipdip

    come on Lakers…. just one on one?

  • joyce ward

    Lin has done well against udrich all game. I am not sure what feed uyou are watching. urdriich even said at halftime that you can’t stop lin, but you have to find ways to slow him down.

  • KHuang

    The last guy I saw with Lin’s speed was the 1980s Jeremy Lin: Michael Ray Richardson.

  • occupatio

    assist!

  • I am The Jason

    Nick Young is shooting the Lakers out of the game

  • blubell

    another steal!

  • blubell

    and assist.

  • joyce ward

    They have already trying to make excuses for Swaggy P…smh

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy is singlehandedly bringing this game closer.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    How Beno scores is the reason why MEM is a much better team….

  • MomentousPetey

    them flare screens though………

  • occupatio

    it is why they are a team.

  • joyce ward
  • MomentousPetey

    they are COACHED…like actually.

  • Brent Yen

    It is one form of TEAM BALL

  • Alaingrvis

    lol memphis on young always shoot never assist. they chuckle when he gets the ball and just wait for him to shoot and bring up that he always shoots everytime

  • occupatio

    try to have an original thought that isnt put out there by lakers announcers. pathetic

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    yea this slow team stop him from having an open court

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Tell his grandson? Please. I’ve downloaded the highlights to show this to Jeremy’s sons.

  • KHuang

    This is cool and all, but we diehard Lin fans have been watching Lin pull better games than this over the last 3 seasons.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    this is to slow. they need to speed it up

  • blubell
  • Guest

    .

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Genuine..

  • JC

    Is that the real mj!!?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Foul trouble.. but he’s back

  • blubell

    and he is in now.

  • blubell

    So nice…

  • 7iger

    He is in then Lin out soon

  • Booyah! J’s Jumper!

  • joyce ward
  • Promo Sports World

    Following you guys lets go lin side note warriors play an amazing pace in person

  • occupatio

    these refs

  • JC

    Definitely Huston Lin produced a lot more than lakers Lin, they are just not using him correctly

  • blubell

    Yes… pad your stats, Jeremy and lets win this.

  • Brent Yen

    Finally…no more Lin-boozer PnR

  • KHuang

    MJ could use a Jeremy Lin on his Charlotte Hornets.

    HINT HINT

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    black not in game yet?

  • blubell

    33333333333333333

  • Chipdip

    So he shot for the three himself 🙂

  • I am The Jason

    Memphis PNRs are hurting the Lakers

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy = HOTNESS 3!

  • Lin for 333333333333!!
    20pts, baby!!

  • spiderman

    Scott wants to bench him badly

  • Jeremiah

    20 points

  • blubell

    Kobe coming in… ugh.

  • Alaingrvis

    hill immature there

  • occupatio

    damn if lin hit that shot, crowd would go crazy

  • Brent Yen

    I want to see Lin-Kelly-Davis stagger screens!!!

  • Sophie Paris

    Linsanity mooode

  • joyce ward
  • occupatio

    that would involve coaching…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin killed one on one defense until he got help screening.

  • Sophie Paris

    Bigs fouling too much

  • Brent Yen

    Ok I am sorry….I got greedy

  • occupatio

    delusional lin fans…

  • blubell

    come on Brent…. smh. lol

  • MomentousPetey

    I’m sure they appreciate those multiple screens their getting…

  • KHuang

    If FRIGGING DEFENSELESS PRICE had not played so many horrible minutes, Udrih and Conley would never have gotten hot against Lin to begin with!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    well they are attacking per defense not lin

  • blubell

    Trudell has always been fair.

  • KHuang

    No other way to score against the NBA’s best perimeter defender in Lin.

  • 7iger

    So after BS ditched Lin he decide to keep shooting, in your face BS.

  • Chipdip

    Ed Davis and Lin, want to see you dance!

  • occupatio

    exactly. stu beiing silly. thats what they do against other teams

  • orLinaryjoe

    Let’s tango!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Stupid T Hill.

  • Chipdip

    nick, good shot and steal!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Nic!

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe played D…kudos…I know I can not ask too much

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Conley has a good screen at that….don’t blame Jeremy you haters!

  • Alaingrvis

    hill gone

  • Brent Yen

    YES!

  • blubell

    finally…

  • occupatio

    wtf

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol goodbye Hill

  • JC

    Nick just made the last 5 points for the lakers why sit him down?

  • blubell

    He’s still in…

  • Sophie Paris

    Come on 4pt game!!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    2 pt game!

  • Alaingrvis

    2pt game

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Some Jeremy-Davis PnR to win this game!!! come on!!!

  • occupatio

    such a risky pass by kobe

  • Brent Yen

    It will be Kobe Davis

  • Sophie Paris

    Yes 😀 Let’s do it Lakers pls…

  • blubell

    Jeremy should be player of the game… so lets win this!

  • QuietLinFan

    Davis should’ve come in sooner! Don’t know BS’ strategy or is there one?

  • JC

    ESPN bad game info 🙁

  • IsabeliJane*17

    AH SHUCKS!!!

  • occupatio

    wake up. lin sets screens — he doesnt get screens. thats BS offense

  • KHuang

    NO, let the Lakers LOSE.

    They don’t deserve to win for having unfairly benched Lin so thoroughly!!!

  • blubell

    I know… i saw the play by play.

  • JC

    No kobe will chuck the potential game winner at the last second

  • orLinaryjoe

    No matter, let’s get this for Lin!

  • occupatio

    stu is not as bad as clyde drexler, but hes starting to annoy me

  • JJ Hui

    If BS put Price in for closing, he is really bs no sense!

  • JoeTeam

    this us a great game!

  • spiderman

    Come on Byron.
    Bring in Ronnie!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    don’t watch it

  • KHuang

    It is a CRAP game that was SAVED BY LIN.

  • blubell

    At least he’s not blaming him for someone else’s mistake… yet.

  • occupatio

    LOL. i remember that one

  • orLinaryjoe

    LOL. As much as they deserve this. Lin needs a win!

  • Sophie Paris

    Dude they always lose while Lin has a good game… Ok Lin gotta put the game winner then 😉

  • JC

    Let kobe or price chuck the game winner then it’s a better ending

  • KHuang

    Yeah!

    Then let Byron Scott FACE THE MUSIC of having benched his best player!

  • JoeTeam

    Lin stops the easy 3!!! kobe miss.

  • blubell

    Bryant… contested shot. surprise surprise.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Co-Briccck!

  • Chipdip

    Kobe is running the show… Jeremy is standing around… go figure ..

  • JC

    Heroball here we come

  • blubell

    why didn’t they foul earlier?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The freakin’ what was that Kobe?!?!!?

  • Alaingrvis

    wth was that scott should of said foul

  • KHuang

    I can’t believe it.

    Lin has played about 27 minutes!!!

    For Lin, that’s like 8-10 more minutes than Byron Scott was intending to play him!

  • JoeTeam

    OT OT OT! Let’s do it.

  • Chipdip

    Kobe is correct… Jeremy is frozen out there when play with Kobe

  • Brent Yen

    Why Lin did not foul?

  • JC

    Anyone want to bet that Kobe will shoot the last shot and miss?

  • I am The Jason

    Byron Scott telling them not to foul. Smh

  • JoeTeam

    well, brain tick.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin should play 33 to 35.

  • Sophie Paris

    Idk no excuse ^^’

  • JoeTeam

    cannot afford it.

  • occupatio

    apparently he was looking at BS and BS didnt call for one. according to stu

  • blubell
  • MomentousPetey

    waiting for Scott’s direction

  • orLinaryjoe

    the kobe effect

  • Alaingrvis

    the lakers as always

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hmm, either coach said not to foul or he froze

  • Sophie Paris

    That’s what I think… but let’s hope not!!

  • JC

    You know what’s gonna happen right???

  • Chipdip

    Hero ball is coming…

  • blubell
  • Dorothy

    no, the commentator said because coach did not ask Lin to foul.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Coach said no foul

  • orLinaryjoe

    if he takes enough shots, he will make one someday.

  • blubell

    so he should be mad at BScott!

  • KHuang

    How pathetic.

    Kobe Bryant doesn’t even attend practices or knows the plays, and now he’s drawing something up out of thin air?

    What a LOSER.

  • occupatio

    BS borrowing Mchale play board

  • joyce ward

    Sott said no foul, kobe is a joke…smh

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This freakin’ game wouldn’t come to this if not for good minutes management.

  • JC

    Really!!?

  • KHuang

    Stupid Bryant, Lin’s just following coach’s orders.

  • blubell

    Thats BS.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s a holl

  • Brent Yen

    Why give the ball to Davis?

  • Chipdip

    Kobe! You should shoot the damn ball…

  • occupatio

    why didnt kobe shoot it

  • Guest

    .

  • Sophie Paris

    Davis FT…

  • KHuang

    BRICK BRICK

  • QuietLinFan

    Yes! Wasted the 3rd Q with JLin sitting out most of it. Nothing new. Predictable coaching.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin looks to sideline to BS. It 4 sec diff.

  • occupatio

    they were trying to break ed davis’ mask. doh

  • KHuang

    UNLIKELY

  • JC

    Except where mchale wrote ‘harden’ change that to ‘Kobe’

  • blubell

    Flagrant?

  • Alaingrvis

    relying on david free throw this is bad

  • occupatio

    head hit. will be flagrant

  • JoeTeam

    wanna !

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Stupid LakersPulse not knowing.

  • occupatio

    yes. by princple, they hav eto call flagrant

  • 7iger

    Well, he doesn’t need to cause the play is get the f off his face and let him be the hero.

  • Solo

    Kobe doesn’t want Lin to have the highest points on the team.

  • occupatio

    doh. i was wrong

  • occupatio

    lol 3 bounces. i love it

  • Pete Roces

    Should you yell at your team mates for not fouling when coach said NO FOUL? Kobe the ballhog should yell at the coach not his team mates….smh

  • KHuang

    But then Lin would BADLY OUTPLAY KOBE and Scott would get pissed at that.

  • Sophie Paris

    He missed a ft. Nooooo xD

  • occupatio

    damn. i dont like davis being scapegoat. he played a great game

  • cshot

    well its done

  • Chipdip

    4th Q, Kobe comes in… Lin is over even still in the game

  • Alaingrvis

    or should a player be smarter then the coach

  • blubell

    How will BScott explain this in the interview? lol. They’re preparing to scapegoat Jeremy.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Game ovah. Only a miracle or a coach who can actually coach can save this game.

  • I am The Jason

    Also the laker bigs are not helping lin with those high screens Memphis were running

  • Sophie Paris

    They gotta foul quick!

  • Pete Roces

    smart player will obviously be benched

  • occupatio

    but seriously. a head hit is a flagrant.

  • occupatio

    they got outcoached.

  • KHuang

    Why was Davis and his 50% FT in there in the first place?

    BAD COACHING

  • JoeTeam

    As soon as Kobe came, I felt the game was over. Really he had a couple of good indiv plays, but he also changed the game for the negative. No Lin offensive threat, half down on D.

  • JJ Hui

    They dont have to lose this game if they dont have a dumb coach, because they were leading 12 at one time!

  • occupatio

    mchale playboard borrowed again

  • Brent Yen

    It is kind of too obvious….

  • JoeTeam

    All BSc had do to win was to put Lin in with 6 mins left in 3rd, not 2.5.

  • Sophie Paris

    Like always

  • blubell

    McHalen not using it anyways…

  • KHuang

    But unlike Lin who knows what he’s doing, Mr. No Practice Clueless Kobe drew up some selfish brick garbage.

  • Chipdip

    yes… so close… hero ball…. I would prefer Nick to shoot it

  • occupatio

    whatever who cares. lin got his pts

  • JoeTeam

    Hey, question … had Kobe made that, is that an assist for Lin?

  • KHuang

    Byron Scott more focused on beating Lin than beating the Grizzlies.

  • 7iger

    Exactly

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Toilet paper shot.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Still ok. Jeremy pounded the Grizzlies on his own on BOTH sides of the floor.

  • KHuang

    I’m GLAD the Lakers lost.

    They don’t deserve to abuse Lin and win.

  • Sophie Paris

    Yep close game

  • John Lee

    …and the FG%.

  • JoeTeam

    Yep, get the team ahead, run downhill, and give it to Price for garbage time.

  • I am The Jason

    Another game winner miss for Kobe. This lost is on Byron Scott as usual

  • Chipdip

    Clearly, Jeremy plays well and score well without Kobe in the court.

  • blubell

    Jeremy got his stats… all that matter.

  • KHuang

    That’s right.

    In the modern era, I’ve not seen a single player take on 5 opponents singlehandedly like Lin routinely does.

  • spiderman

    you da man ronnie!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe so disrespect his teammates.

  • KHuang

    Lin will be PUNISHED next game for daring to play this well.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Disrespect HIMSELF.

    Kobe playing a usual CRAP game.

  • Alaingrvis

    well hard shot

  • occupatio

    like mchale, lets lin sit on bench until the team falls behind.

  • 7iger

    15 minutes max

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe in Lin stands at the corner.

  • BobbyH

    Why Lin closed the game? Jeanie Buss there? Home game? BS wanted to win?

  • KHuang

    Next game, Byron Scott will make sure Lin gets less minutes so that Ronnie Price can play more.

  • Sophie Paris

    That’s called consistency

  • Briiick

    I guess BS has done so much against the odds of winning that he lost his sense to call a foul in the last minute.

  • KHuang

    Ronnie Price GETTING ABUSED TOO BADLY.

    Has nothing whatsoever to do with Lin.

  • occupatio

    makes no difference. they run plays for anyone but lin at endgame. hes just the inbounder

  • 7iger

    Consistently bad

  • Alaingrvis

    have to say the play where kobe drop and passed it to davis was a bad idea. he is a 50 percent free-throw hooter would rater he shoot it or get it to either lin or young

  • orLinaryjoe

    You have to admit, with .6 seconds left, the last kobe shot looked good going up. Had a chance.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I personally think BS wanted a steal or something else but not a foul.

  • David Kim

    Top Performers

    Mem: M. Conley 19 Pts, 6 Reb, 9 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk

    LAL: J. Lin 20 Pts, 3 Reb, 5 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    not really lin subbed in real early so who knows why

  • KHuang

    Kobe drew that crap up.

    That’s what happens when guys like Bryant who skip practice don’t know who their 50% FT shooting teammates are.

  • occupatio

    how many minutes lin play?

  • orLinaryjoe

    No argument there unless he could have dunked it.

  • Linja

    28

  • occupatio

    he only got to play bc boozer/hill fouled out.

  • blubell

    not enough.

  • occupatio

    lol. pathetic.

  • Je Ballew

    I’m easy to please. Jeremy might play the great game.

  • KHuang

    Not as impressive as it seems.

    NO Zach Randolph tonight.

    Randolph OWNS Ed Davis.

  • BobbyH

    Lin played 26 min. Kobe played 33. If their minutes should be reversed, the game would be won.

    Edit: Lin 27:33 to be exact.

  • blubell

    exactly.

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe 33 minutes. lol already relapsing scott

  • CJSHYY

    From ESPN?

  • Alaingrvis

    28

  • JC

    BS indirectly setting up Kobe for failure!

  • Linja

    Ronnie is very “Inconsistent”.

  • joyce ward

    Jeannie NBuss reading her tweets. She is not stupid an I think she is not happy with Scott because his ignorance transends all realms of what the Laker organization are trying to represent.

  • KHuang

    Price not doing squat the 1st quarter is why Lin got subbed in early.

  • occupatio

    nevermind the 4th quarter crap. this game was lost in 3rd quarter, in which lin didnt play till 2 min left.

  • blubell
  • Linja

    So to maintain “Inconsistency”.

  • David Kim

    yes

  • Chipdip

    He did not get to touch the ball much in hte last 4 min of the game. Kobe in, Lin watches

  • KHuang

    When Lin came into the game late in the 3rd, it was ALREADY GARBAGE TIME.

  • Alaingrvis

    does he ever do anything on most nights

  • CJSHYY

    Thanks for the infor

  • KHuang

    PATHETIC.

    A player that good gets only 27 minutes, and that 27 minutes is basically a season high for Lin off the bench???

    Lin will be punished by Byron Scott for this outing. GUARANTEED.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Took the words outta my mouth

  • KHuang

    Might as well have been 24.

    Kobe coming in RUINED LIN’S GAME.

  • JC

    lol he did it again

  • 7iger

    BS kept Price in hopping that miracle might happen.

  • BobbyH

    I will agree if Lin closes game from now on.

  • Alaingrvis

    he waited to long to sub as always. atlas mchale was quick to sub lin in if they started to struggle. would come in at the 9 minutes mark some days

  • Sophie Paris

    All the bigs in foul troubles, 2 fouled out. Can’t protect the rim.

  • Alaingrvis

    well it is what it is

  • Linja

    I did give KB the credit for his experience. BS – bad. Lin will learn this one, not having to wait for BS’s instruction.

  • occupatio

    like harden and howard, kobe also takes it out on lin. its never easy geezus

  • orLinaryjoe

    Waiting for that Price consistency to kick in. It did, the usually bad way

  • blubell

    Kobe is only player to play over 30 minutes.

  • Brent Yen

    Lets see how quickly Scott blame Lin

  • KHuang

    McHale still hated Lin just as badly as Scott does.

    It’s just that the Rockets had more backcourt depth, though Bev got his butt trounced even worse than Price does.

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    I think so bc he got more points than Kobe. Next game he will not get that many min or points for sure.

  • BobbyH

    Messed up team tempo?

  • KHuang

    Kobe not interested in winning the game.

    Only interested in beating Lin – which Kobe failed to do yet again for the millionth time.

  • Brent Yen

    The foul or no foul thing…

  • BobbyH

    But that didn’t decide the game outcome. Oh, wait, BS will use it anyway to distract away from his inept.

  • CJSHYY

    Scott said no foul… plus that’s not the reason they lose this game.

  • joyce ward

    I am so happy for lin and the game he played tonight. Lin is a really good player and a very good team player where his team mates trust him. I love that this was a game where lin stats said kiss my azz Byron Scott you are full of it. I Can play efficient in 28 minutes.

  • Alaingrvis

    scott has no feel of the game. doesn’t call time out if the other team gets hot. doesn’t sub the top scorer in when they start losing the game. he is a very poor excuse of a coach. also per defense was embarrassing

  • Sophie Paris

    Pathetic xD

  • KHuang

    I called this since 2012.

    No surprises – Kobe is historically a TERRIBLE clutch player and is a horrific 4th quarter liability.

  • occupatio

    it just goes to show confirmation bias. like the lakers announcers, they think is kobe is super clutch and ignore all the data that shows otherwise and anything suggesting he is, they are all over it.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Love that! Was wondering what that stat was. Another record! Woot! Co-brick! (Disqus doesn’t like it with a K)

  • 7iger

    Yes, to prove that BS is right.

  • Linja

    Byron, Low IQ guy. That is why he so hates Lin.

  • KHuang

    These outdated 80s coaches like Scott are bewildered by the pace and tactics of the modern game.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I personally think BS wanted a steal or tight defense but no foul.. just to show off he can coach during pressure time lol

  • Briiick

    Scott tries to make him a scoring leader.

  • Brent Yen

    But it is one good thing to scapegoat…

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Byron Scott, HIGH IQ guy in the illegal defense era.

    Low IQ guy in the modern era.

  • occupatio

    i just call him dumb

  • Alaingrvis

    probably this is the issue

  • JoeTeam

    the thing is, Kobe the upset guy just ran and took 3 sec to make that foul, and all he had to do was to yell for lin to foul and it would have been 2 sec saved. He was being a hero to make a point, and that cost the game really. Lin was probably thinking he had a steal hehe.

  • Chipdip

    Consistency in play! BS loves it.

  • Brent Yen

    4 seconds diff….M…I think most NBA teams will foul

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Good news somehow: Scott didn’t blame Jeremy on that foul thing.

  • Brent Yen

    He did yelled

  • KHuang

    That’s it, Scott.

    Scapegoat the Asian guy like you always have.

  • occupatio

    true. good pt

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    what i thought. hrvard guy isn’t stupid after all

  • orLinaryjoe

    Let’s see if he denies not calling for the foul in the end.

  • golfhacker

    7am in France – ur dedicated!

  • Brent Yen

    I am sorry Scott that I was so cynical on you

  • Alaingrvis

    no he said lin did what he said kobe was wrong.

  • occupatio

    what do you mean?

  • Alaingrvis

    altough i think kobe was right

  • blubell

    This somehow doesn’t sound like BScot…
    https://twitter.com/bgarcia90/status/551260181230002176

  • BobbyH

    What a snake.

  • Brent Yen

    I thought he will just say it was Lin’s fault

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Doesn’t matter.

    Why is Scott talking about Lin’s lack of a foul when he’s got MR CHOKESTER BRYANT bricking the game away with scrub play?

    Lin’s play is so nontoxic compared to all the garbage Kobe pulled!!!

  • occupatio

    i dont really understand the logic of waiting.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea he took the blame which he should but he did

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yea solid. SOLID PAIN IN THE BEHIND.

  • orLinaryjoe

    BS: I said “Foul, Lin! He thought I said “Wow, Lin!”

  • JoeTeam

    how do ppl know BSc said no foul?

  • KHuang

    But Scott still is calling out Lin.

    Scott should be blaming Kobe Bryant for the game losing, not calling out Lin.

  • joyce ward

    I told you guys that ESPN is not interested in posting anything positive about Kobe. Kobe is not even being mentioned in SI or NBA unless it it is negative.

  • Chipdip

    Ah… Kobe, may be you should listen to your coach first and talk back TO YOUR COACH and not screaming at your teammate!

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe has played well allowing team ball. scott has to sub early not kobe fault

  • JoeTeam

    solid way to lose.

  • KHuang

    Solid waste, yes.

    Scott is a LOSER.

  • Brent Yen

    Well I am not gonna asking too much…

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    I’m beginning to like ESPN… LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    this is a stretch

  • Linja

    or, Pho !

  • KHuang

    Still Kobe CHOKED at the end, like he always does.

    That’s what Kobe gets for not attending practices and thus not knowing what to do in clutch situations.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yeah, did BS a solid by getting him a job!

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    bull feces is not runny, but solid.

  • 7iger

    Well, after Kobe call them name.

  • JoeTeam

    FIFY: “that’s all you can ask for if you don’t mind losing every game to get some risky picks.”

  • MoominFloren

    hahahaha

  • JC

    MJ been following lin’s game or just lakers?

  • JoeTeam

    why wait until past half court, so LAL have ending shot?

  • KHuang

    That’s right, scapegoat the Asian guy and question his intelligence.

    Scott is just scraping for a way to criticize Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    chocked well. he is where 40 year old mj was. just cant do it any more

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yeah, he thought about it, but when he was too stupid to call it, the esp thing didn’t pan out. Lin should never listen to him anyways.

  • KHuang

    I call LYING AGAIN.

    I’ll bet money that Byron Scott said NOTHING to Kobe Bryant about this.

  • Alaingrvis

    what does this mean. lin is professor x. lin a mind reader

  • JJ Hui

    That was why he got fired by two teams! Glorious right?

  • occupatio

    kobe does have internet and have access to twitter like we do. cmon lol. saying it to the media is to say it to everyone.

    relax.

  • cshot

    can jlin get praise from scott for once?

  • KHuang

    Stupid coach needs to make himself heard to players so that no miscommunications happen.

    Stupid coach should also KNOW the orders that he’s barking out for players like Lin to carry out.

  • JW

    so lin was doing well for the game, but doesn’t seem like last few minute, lin was involved on the offense.

  • Sophie Paris

    Scott wanted Lakers to take the final possession with 10 sec.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Choke is choke.

    Doesn’t matter how old a player is.

    Besides, Kobe has ALWAYS choked in crunchtime according to the numbers.

  • Alaingrvis

    well your asking us

  • JoeTeam

    tonight was one of his top efficiency games …

  • Chipdip

    At least 4 minutes watching Kobe to dance

  • golfhacker

    I don’t think he took a shot in the 4-5 mins.

  • KHuang

    BWAHAHAHA!!!

    Try starting Lin and playing him proper minutes with proper usage.

    See what happens.

  • Briiick

    You are exposed !

  • Chipdip

    Because Kobe wants him there

  • Joe what do you know

    Yeah. Standard BS practice. Just drag Lin down into his own swamp of stupidity.

  • Linja

    If KB is the solid waste, BS is the Septic tank.

  • Alaingrvis

    scott sounding incoherent right now

  • 7iger

    They pay him to kiss Kobe behind

  • KHuang

    NO IT’S NOT.

    Scott now accusing Lin of “miscommunication”.

  • JoeTeam

    well, as soon as Kobe came in, whole offense went slow and into loser mode.

  • joyce ward

    Lin playing by the rules because if he had been given freedom, he would have done what is right. Kobe getting mad at lin because he didn’t foul goes back to the drama he and scott have created for him by putting him on a short leash and it came back to bite them in the butt.

  • KHuang

    NO.

    Scott accusing Lin of miscommunicating on coach’s orders.

  • John Lee

    Why? BS only praises the likes of Price, and I for one don’t want Lin in the same category.

  • MoominFloren

    He has a son named Kobe

  • BobbyH

    10-23 now, and it is counting, the 23 series.

  • Alaingrvis

    scott is flip flopping right now

  • occupatio

    true

  • orLinaryjoe

    Pho king dumb of BS, LOL.

  • KHuang

    Typical Byron Scott – order Lin to carry out a specific task and then CRITICIZE Lin for having performed that task properly.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Seriously?!?!

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    And a hamster named Price!

  • Briiick

    I don’t like the BS praise.

  • PostGame thread is now open!

    Congrats JLin for starting 2015 with his best game in a Lakers uniform despite only playing for 27 min!
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g33-mem-lal-postgame-thread/

  • occupatio

    should have mentioned only 27 minutes. thats why its especially great

  • joyce ward

    If Scott would have stuck with lin/Davis down the stretch he would have won this game..

  • Rick Johnson

    Jeremy Lin Impacts NBA All-Star Voting in Big Way; Lakers PG Screws Up James Harden’s Bid

    http://www.travelerstoday.com/articles/17138/20150102/jeremy-lin-impacts-nba-all-star-voting-in-big-way-lakers-pg-screws-up-james-hardens-bid.htm

    “Lin’s presence in the current race is jeopardizing Harden’s chance of becoming an All-Star starter for the first time in his career, and there seems nothing he can do to change the obvious result.”

  • KHuang

    Nope.

    Byron Scott don’t wanna be quoted praising the Asian guy.

  • John Lee

    Music to my ears!

  • MoominFloren

    No…..hamster is cute, don’t insult it

  • CJSHYY

    How? Lin is only #9 not #4?!

  • KHuang

    What, we’re covering up for Byron Scott now?

    It isn’t as if Byron Scott has TOLD THE TRUTH all season long when it comes to Lin.

  • John Lee

    Effectively 24 minutes, last 3 minutes Kobeball don’t count.

  • 7iger

    That I like

  • CJSHYY

    Kobe will start over Harden for sure even he is old.

  • KHuang

    ok ok.

  • JoeTeam

    can’t wait for the New Jeremy Lin Interview guy:

    “what, did he really say that? I heard him say to foul at 10 sec.”

  • occupatio

    scott said to the media it was not lin’s fault. how can kobe not know that — either hearing it directly from scott or through the media?

    you are saying crazy stuff that does not make sense.

  • Brent Yen

    Kelly too

  • KHuang

    That’s not the point.

    Scott accused Lin of “MISCOMMUNICATION”.

    Scott shouldn’t be criticizing Lin’s play at all.

    Besides, Scott has a history of LYING about his encounters with Lin.

  • JoeTeam

    ok, I just saw the replay where he was yelling but not really at anyone. I took it to be Kobe yelling in general lol.

  • Sophie Paris

    Friday night nba night 😀

  • occupatio

    so is black even available? why did he not play a single minute tonight despite bigs in foul trouble?

  • John Lee

    It was BS own fault for clogging up Lin’s ears with solid waste.

  • KHuang

    If Scott had played Jeremy Lin more in the 3rd quarter, the Lakers would have walked away with an EASY victory.

  • cindystar111

    nice to see great game from lin. kobe/bs suck as usual.

  • KHuang

    OK, that’s the entire game summary right there!!!

  • cindystar111

    blame lin even after he left the rockets?

  • cindystar111

    lol

  • JW

    Lin really had a hard time answering that question that the team is starting to play better together. Sounded like he didn’t want to say something bad.

  • Sophie Paris

    So predictable

  • 7iger

    True or not I like Lin to be the reason just to piss off Houston.

  • spiderman

    “Price good D… Kobe solid…Lin inconsistent”

  • spiderman

    Scott is trash

  • JJ Hui

    Scott really like an uneducated cave man, he thinks everyone is stupid and dumb when he spits out nonsense and expect people to take it without any queation?

  • Guest

    a solid pooper

  • occupatio

    highlights

  • sws94

    or as usual?

  • occupatio
  • jolno

    After Lin scored his 20th point with that clutch three, I thought to myself that Kobe would not allow Lin to score again because another bucket means Lin will increase his season high scoring output to either 22 to 23 points (season high was 21 against Bobcats i.e. Lakers first win which started Kobe’s jealousy towards Lin).

    Well, turns out I was right and Kobe made sure Lin never had another chance to attempt a shot without breaking the “offense” aka “hand the ball to Kobe”. Anyways, Kobe will keep firing more bricks at the end of the game to create a unbreakable record of most consecutive field goal misses on game-tying or game-winning shots with 5 seconds or less in the game.

  • golfhacker

    Clearly, you don’t need any beauty sleep 😉

  • jolno

    Possible reason: philosophical difference with BS who only “talks” about defense whereas Black actually “plays” defense.

  • LAJane

    At 5:58, Poindexter walks up to Jeremy to give him a supportive tap. I was surprised. I know sometimes opposing players will do this if they know each other off court. Have they ever played together? If not, is that a little unusual? Seemed like some kind of respect.

  • LinFanAtNC

    Have you seen this?

    Mike Trudell ✔ @LakersReporterFollow
    Scott said he did think about fouling earlier but it may have been a miscommunication with Lin. Could have obviously saved several seconds.
    1:16 AM – 3 Jan 2015

  • LinFanAtNC

    But I thought he still did in an indirect way:

    Lol 🙂 But usually I fall asleep at half time if the game is boring hehe
