G35 LAL @ POR Game Thread

Without Kobe, will LAL and Byron Scott rely on JLin as the true PG?

Let’s hope they do for winning, trade showcasing or any other reasons.

Let’s Go JLin!

    Where is everyone??? Go JLin!!!

  • Nitron

    Go JLin!!!

  • Yascar

    Late again!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Reggie Jackson is a perfect example of an average player who was empowered.

  • Bearness

    Noooooooo 5th =(

  • MoominFloren

    I’m late again….

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Sorry!

  • CJSHYY
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Sneaky @psalm234 to get this done letting us know:-)

  • CJSHYY
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW! Thought JR is buddy buddy with Carmelo. GM pulls the plug?

  • Alaingrvis

    wow he hates messing with that bench unit of boozer lin young. guess we know who the real starters are

  • Bearness

    Can let Lin ball hog in 2nd unit! …although Booz is there anyway.

  • Bearness

    Can’t mess with starter chemistry. I mean, bench chemistry. LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    lol exactly

  • Bearness

    Seriously! We need a countdown before new thread next time. =P

  • Alaingrvis

    both jr and iman to the cavs?

  • CJSHYY

    PJ hates JR & didn’t really like Shumpert either?! I really want to know who will they get back?

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t know…

  • Rick Johnson

    JR with that locker room is going to be toxic. Everyone will want to iso.

  • CJSHYY

    He has to listen to LBJ…

  • joyce ward
  • 1mtoldman

    ok this is still sketchy but at the moment it appears: okc gets waiters. cavs get jr and shumpert. knicks just dump salary and get a bunch of contracts they will waive and a possible draft pick. (and daelembart will be waived also)

  • Promo Sports World

    Knick fan here and give me waiters and Jackson

  • Promo Sports World

    Shump at OKC fills the thabo void

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Guess he is doing it when his time allows him to:-)

  • Promo Sports World

    Jr and Sam to Cavs works for cavs too

  • Promo Sports World

    Now back to jlin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Don’t see anything even after I refresh it.

  • Brent Yen

    I just randomly switching among games now. NO team defends PnR worse than LAL did…so bad…

  • Alaingrvis

    jackson not included

  • Promo Sports World

    I hate the Knicks man even the fake trades don’t haopen lol

  • Alaingrvis
  • Alaingrvis
  • Sophie Paris

    I like Shumpert!!!! My former neighbor xD

  • joyce ward

    I can’t see the twitter posts even after I refresh the screen, What is going on?

  • JoeTeam

    Internet … seems all the tw are messing up.

  • Sophie Paris

    It works for me

  • JoeTeam

    what browser are you on? I’m on safari.

  • John Lee

    Too much JR toxicity on Twitter…

  • joyce ward

    google chrome

  • Alaingrvis

    one says kelly to start one. others say jr smith and shumpart to cavs. okc get dion waiter. knicks get second round pick

  • Sophie Paris

    Explorer ^^”

  • JoeTeam

    my Firefox is out too.

  • John Lee

    Internet Exploder?

  • Alaingrvis

    lol knicks traded iman for nothing. remember when they had lin and shumpart. lost both for zero

  • 1mtoldman

    some other reports have knicks getting a first round pick. also getting some contracts they will waive from both okc and clev.

  • John Lee

    “Right-click open in new tab” is your friend… 🙂

  • joyce ward
  • Filler-up

    Hi, just signed up today and this is my first post. Came into the game thread ann all you guys are talking about is the trade between Cleveland and NYK. Am I in the right place?

  • 1mtoldman

    right place, wrong time

  • Alaingrvis

    nope adrian woj said he made a mistake

  • Alaingrvis

    well game may start at 10 but really at 10:30 or when ever lin gets in. so still a while

  • JoeTeam

    something happened in last hr, I was loading tweets ok before that. Been that way forever. Some mashup error between Tw and this platform.

  • joyce ward

    Still not working for me

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Welcome! Right place but the trade is “hot” atm. Not much to talk about JLin atm:-)

  • Filler-up

    OK speculation time. Lin gets in at the 6 min mark, earlier than previously. Because fist unit is going to get blown out and BS will have no choice but to play the bench more minutes.

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol I have Firefox and Chrome too but I still prefer Explorer. Actually it works also on the other 2 for me.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Really?? I thought I saw earlier report said that it would be wks.

  • Alaingrvis

    who knows price unleashed could happen lol

  • bolero

    unchained . lol

  • Filler-up

    Great, more missed dunks. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

  • Sophie Paris

    They must be happy going on contender teams

  • John Lee

    Los Angeles Djangos play tonight.

  • Filler-up

    Thanks for the welcome. I hope this place is more friendly. I hope I can also provide some different perspective since I live in HK.

  • bolero

    When Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith found out about the trade… pic.twitter.com/3lYG6yyK1W— Whistle Sports (@TheWhistle) January 6, 2015

  • Alaingrvis

    it was entertaining.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL

  • Filler-up

    It would have been funnier if Price went up the second time and did the same dunk and missed again – like in the slam dunk contest at the ASG where they have do overs.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol yep i would be if it was lin. although cavs are not really contenders unless hulk lebron shows up

  • 1mtoldman

    cleveland is a contending team?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes it’s but please read and observe website rule http://www.jlinportal.com/website-rules-must-read/

  • Alaingrvis

    read my mind. but yea in the east they maybe. lebrun could still win games on his own. like the old cavs way

  • John Lee

    At home I run IE11 on Windows 10 Technical Preview with Core i7 and 12GB memory. IE still has problem with memory leak and consumes more CPU cycles than either Firefox or Chrome. Not too bad if you’re only running less than 8-10 tabs, but I’m regularly on 15-20 tabs so it becomes sorely obvious.

  • Sophie Paris

    Well they’ll make the playoffs

  • 1mtoldman

    right now they’re “contending” with the phil tankers and losing.

  • Filler-up

    Done that already but thanks for the heads up. If this place was not moderated, I probably would not sign up since I cannot stand the unmoderated sites that goes down in style points pretty quickly.

  • bolero

    @linfinity88 @Jlin7 Just because you see him at the game don't mean he's your buddy. 50,000 other people see him at the games too.— Dwain808 (@dwain808) January 6, 2015

  • Alaingrvis

    safari for the win

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Great! We do our best to keep everyone in line with the rules. That’s why we have many mods in different time zones/continents to mod the site 24/7.

  • Filler-up

    Are you really in Aussie land? Which city? Melbourne is my second home.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes I’m. Now I live in Brisbane. Used to live in Melbourne for over 3 years.

  • John Lee

    Welcome to the Sanctuary of classy Lin fans. I’m from LA but currently working in Hong Kong Central.

  • Sophie Paris

    Yeah I see. Usually IE is fine for my little use of internet, else I use the other ones.

  • Filler-up

    John, I took the morning off to watch part of the game on internet.

  • Acbc

    Portland should start their bench as well. Lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It’s working now. I used Firefox. After 2-3 refreshes.

  • John Lee

    Hahaha, Cavs just lost to the Sixers!

  • JoeTeam

    Welcome …

  • JoeTeam

    Hope your boss is not here lol

  • Acbc

    Hmmm, only LIN gets the super scrubs to be empowered…AC Law, Felton, Bev, Price.

    It’s amazing how opposing coaches are much more respectful of LIN than his own coaches.

  • Alaingrvis

    what

  • 1mtoldman

    kevin love must feel like hes back in (where was it he was?)–scoring 30 and losing.

  • sport

    Even Lakers reporter think Young should start over Ryan Kelly but says Lakers seems to like what they get from the bench. Such BS, reason Young can’t start is the same reason Lin can’t start, can’t take spotlight from the EGOManiac named Kobe! If Young got to start he’d show everyone how more athletic and better he is than Kobe at his age! I hope the Buss family sees how JLin, Young, and Davis can be their new big 3 given the chance!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just checked the score 95 vs 92.

  • Nitron

    Welcome !!

  • 1mtoldman

    making knicks now offcially the worst team in the nba.

  • joyce ward
  • John Lee

    Dolan deserves nothing less.

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya if starters do significantly better with Young than Kobe it might not look good. And Lin flourishing because he doesn’t have to defer to Young would also look bad for Kobe.

  • cindystar111

    well, lakers don’t start their best players. eg lin. not surprising.

  • cindystar111

    are the Cavs tanking too? lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    What is Cleveland doing? Collecting and collecting till they become the “Avengers” of the NBA?

  • joyce ward

    Yep, K-Love on his way to the Lakers. That is the big name that is going to come. He will suffer playing with Kobe for another year, just to become”the man” for the Lakers.LOL

  • james brown

    hoping that JLIN will be a FREE Player today!!! free from the bondage of short leash and BS NOW wanting to win!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Too bad Lakers FO didn’t try jumping getting Iman Shumpert. A reunion with Jeremy would be sweet. What in the world is Cleveland doing? Collecting more and more pieces, then discard and discard some more till they become the “Avengers” of the NBA?

    It’s laughable at this point already.

  • joyce ward
  • cindystar111

    lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • Briiick

    Good actor ! His top heavy body is a gift for it.

  • John Lee

    Bwahahaha, first Cavs lose to Sixers, now Mavs lose to Nets under Jarrett Jack!

    Pretty boy with 2 pts on 1-10 FG, 0-6 3PT, 0-2 FT. Talking about not being able to hit water shooting from a boat!

  • Sophie Paris

    Lmao

  • BobbyH

    I love the expression of the player that did this. “Whatever …”

  • JT

    houston playing pretty well, i think they going to beat a full strength bulls

  • joyce ward

    That was jimmy butler..LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Cavs solution to this loss – Get more and more players. Discard when they don’t fit the team. Rinse.Repeat.

  • Bearness

    He’s the man.

  • John Lee

    Hollywood cornerstone!

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    And the plot thickens…..

  • Jeremiah

    Yay! I’mma get tickets for those games!

  • John Lee

    And the fans rejoice!

  • james brown

    this is an indirect way of saying that KObe maybe on his last year playing competitive basketball..hope before this time, they start to realize(the lakers) that they are loosing their chance to get Jeremy and build this team from him!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Spurs do that all the time to their older players… yet they still win games.

  • Sophie Paris

    He’s out 2 weeks and Irving few days probably

  • sport

    Forget back to back, fans won’t mind seeing him rest for the entire season!

  • Filler-up

    No, I am using my carry over leave. Since I was in office all throughout Xmas, I can take a break now that everyone else is back.

  • John Lee

    The Spurs, unlike the Lakers, have a real coach (not to be confused with Koach).

  • 1mtoldman

    and his teammates rejoice.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t have my glasses on and I read it as “Roach”. I would have agreed.. still I agree with the “Koach”

  • Briiick

    Kobe could trade his early retirement for some shares, if he hasn’t done it already.

  • Jeremiah

    Is it ok to use the roach nickname for BS?

  • 1mtoldman

    reports of mavs demise premature; leading now by 8 in ot. and cp is up to 2 for 11! (also i think dirk went into 7th all time in scoring).

  • BobbyH

    WIN-WIN-WIN for FO/Kobe and Lin.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s ok.Just make it something like BRoach to distinguish him from Freddie Roach (Pac’s trainer)

  • John Lee

    I’ll take the Mavs win as it keeps HOU in 5th.

    I’m just happy pretty boy is only 5 pts on 2-11 FG, 1-7 3PT and 0-2 FT.

  • james brown

    watching at the meantime game of houston and the commentator was saying rose must beware PB dirty plays to cause harm not to foul!

  • Brin

    Go Lin! Keep up the positive attitude and playing with joy! Time to start enjoying the back to backs now. It’s your moment to shine and no reason to be tired with these limited minutes. No Kobe means you get a chance to show everyone that your brand of basketball works. Signature wins against GS and Portland without Kobe would be great. or just go for yours 18+9 if BS gives him the minutes, I think he will tonight.

  • Sophie Paris

    They’re down by 4 and 1 minute left. Lol Rox are 1/3 on FT tonight xD

  • Alaingrvis

    have to watch laker broadcast

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ah Lamarcus Aldridge… who turned my dad into a fanboy in less than a minute last playoffs.

  • Jeremiah

    Jeremy kept looking at the roach to see if he should foul. And 3x the roach signalled no by wiggling his antennas.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yeech Wes Matthews!!! That’s scary!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    That looks bad

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It looks like his leg is about to separate…

  • sport

    Ouch Wes Matthews that doesn’t look good. So many injuries good to players this season.

  • 1mtoldman

    rockets lose but p bev rockets player of the game.

  • james brown

    pau gasol is really something as a player if he is with the right players. 27 points against Houston!

  • nodomo

    Meltdown in Houston. Rockets up 5 pts with 4 min left in the game against the bulls…ended up losing by 9 pts.

  • John Lee

    YAY, Rox lost to Bulls and two games behind 4th place Mavs!

    Now I’m torn on who to root for, Clippers to bump down HOU to 6th, or the East Cost Spurs in Hawks…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ma root for a Spurs win/Rockets loss 🙂

  • JT

    too bad he’s not a PG so no chance for Lin to get traded to Portland

  • sport

    Price is really trying to copy Lin’s moves, ran to the rim and then stop and pop for mid jumper but missed.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The term “imitation is a form of flattery” doesn’t apply here..

  • John Lee

    For what I care, Bev can be Rox player of the game EVERY game if it means a HOU loss.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jordan Hill doing a Lamarcus Aldridge on…… Lamarcus Aldridge?

  • Filler-up

    Jimmy Butler is a bad bad man.

  • JoeTeam

    Then welcome and may we have linsanity for 32 mins! Today.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Damien dancing in there…

  • Alaingrvis

    lol sacree before lin

  • Rick Johnson

    Lillard blows by Price, Stu complements Lillard. If he blew by Lin he would criticize Lin for letting him blow by. Typical

  • Alaingrvis

    lin last sub amazing

  • sport

    Why is it that every time Lin’s about to check in there’s a time out?!

  • John Lee

    Rox play Cavs next, while Spurs will play Pistons, you just may get your wish. 🙂

  • james brown

    BS is really something…nobody is going to contest that he really LIKE any other Player Except a jeremy LIN!

  • Filler-up

    He’s the last one in. But had the biggest cheers.

  • james brown

    crowd shouts loud when JLIN’s coming in!!!

  • Pete Roces

    What happened to NBA? Dominated by ballhogs everywhere, is this the concept of team sport? Kobe and Young….smh

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just wonder: Is it normal for a player than injured lot and returned to play so many minutes?

  • Chipdip

    Good shot Lin!!!

  • bolero

    Yup, I heard that too.

  • Pete Roces

    Not BS anymore, its NBA in general that doesn’t want Lin an Asian American Kid to shine!

  • LAJane

    Welcome! You’ll be happy here….a safe haven of civilized Lin fandom 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin in game tied.

  • Maknusia

    Yeah, but its crazy to see him coming so late into the game

  • IsabeliJane*17

    From an actual coach perspective : Spread out his minutes first rather than give him heavy minutes immediately.

    Byron Scott:YES

  • Chipdip

    starters all minus, bench all plus… keep it up!

  • JT

    can’t believe nick young is playing PG and running PNRS. The hate is real

  • Maknusia

    Nothing makes sense in LAL

  • Chipdip

    Good foul!

  • JW

    lin out there directing offense though still

  • Brin

    Why is Young copying Bryant in every way trying to take PG duties. Lin needs to demand the ball. He is horrible at playing the point. Stick to what you do best please!

  • MoominFloren

    What?

  • Chipdip

    because LA has no coach

  • Brent Yen

    Lin looking to shoot more it seems. Scott is telling him to involve others I guess…..lol

  • james brown

    and consider its Portland land!!!!…”they say WELCOME to Port-LIN”

  • nodomo

    Lin looks free & loose on the court tonight. Playing freely…I like it…

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • Hans

    Lin looks free. Reminds me of the interview he gave yesterday, how he finds a balance between aggressive and relax and just have fun out there. it’s working.

  • Maknusia

    lol…first time hearing props for IE 🙂

  • joyce ward

    Is he scoring and getting assists?

  • Chipdip

    seems to me his teammates not moving much for him to pass to .. so he has to shoot more

  • Maknusia

    Welcome…and you would see Mods are trolls here…lol

  • Chipdip

    Lin just had a bad turn over which will ignite him… gonna be a huge night in scoring … haha

  • JJ Hui

    Just last game is enough to tell BS is bias! Lin played so few min after a really good game! He never value Lin’s contribution! I am glad Lin is strong and not affected much by BS’s mind game!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    As much as Boozer’s defense make me cringe, I can’t help but like the guy. He genuinely likes Jeremy. Looks more to pass to him whenever he gets (and screams “AAAYYYY!!!”) a rebound.

  • Maknusia

    He came in late in Q1, with 2:49 to go…immediately made a jump shot and an Ast to Boozer

  • Chipdip

    See… it is happening… 😉

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Freakin’ husband leaving the Portland guys to dust with that speed!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    For the first time, I can’t access to watch the game. Any help?

  • sport

    He’s playing well, still aggressive and looking to score more after that bad turnover. Booz passing the ball to him instead of Young LOL. Booz threw a great half court pass to Lin for an assist! Nice to have a friend on the floor who’d pass the ball to you unlike Chandler Parsons, past Rocket teammates or Lakers teammates.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol he literlly smacked lin butt no foul

  • nodomo

    I hate Boozer’s game too, but he does seem to be good to Jeremy

  • Chipdip
  • Brent Yen

    Too bad it was not an and one….

  • james brown

    refs BLIND!

  • Hans

    yes i saw that, he looks for Jeremy everytime he grabs a rebound. and although he’s d is weak, he pisses the opponent off by grabbing and pushing (and yelling I guess) the whole time. literally, the WHOLE TIME.

  • nodomo

    He looks free and playing without too much thinking. 5 pts and an assist..

  • Maknusia

    lately he had been missing the initial FTs…hmmmm

  • bolero

    Wow. Butt smacker.

  • james brown

    the TEAM needs to complain about non calls to make them competitive!

  • Brin

    Spot on. He does genuinely like him. I think Lin didn’t like him at first and has come around, they seem to get along well now. That was a nice outlet pass. Booz just needs to limit the mental lapses.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks! Able to watch it finally:-)

  • sport

    That was such a on the point, risky half court pass by Booz but so glad Lin caught it!!

  • MoominFloren

    Who is playing PG ?

  • spiderman

    Kobe sending the evil eye through the tv screen

  • Alaingrvis

    lin for the most part

  • Chipdip

    Go Lin Go!

  • spiderman

    Scott’s a no-show

  • Brewkowski

    That’s no foul. Just some love.

  • Maknusia

    Lin’s unit with Clarkson is really pushing it hard….Bench for the Win!

  • Chipdip

    Yeah!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Bench should start…

  • MoominFloren

    That’s good

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson has tunnel vision. all shoot

  • Chipdip

    Clarkson! Go go go! Your big chance tonight! All the best!

  • blubell

    One turnover and benched… smh.

  • Maknusia

    Lets see some Lin-Davis PNR

  • nodomo

    Clarkson getting more min than Jeremy in the 1st half? WTF

  • Maknusia

    darn…I spoke too soon

  • sport

    Lin out.

  • JT

    damn

  • Brent Yen

    Scott is so worried about Lillard….

  • james brown

    still giving price his PRIZE!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Honestly if I’ve ever had the chance to meet BS, I’m going to do something nasty!!!

  • sport

    Lin out, go Portland!

  • Chipdip

    Lin is just getting warm up! Hate the Lakers! … Hope an explosive game later from Lin…

  • james brown

    or he wants to lose!Lillard smoking Price!
    BUT price is now guarding Blake..BS afraid of BLAKE????

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin out lead gone.

  • Brent Yen

    No one talks,,,,,,pethetic

  • Alaingrvis

    and there goes the lead

  • sport

    LOL fail Price, lost the ball on fast break.

  • Alaingrvis

    its like lin out lead out lol

  • Chipdip

    There will be a long line up to do that… be prepare to wait in line for a very long time

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kill the BS Lakers. Can’t stand them.

  • blubell

    This is not Lintertaining.

  • sport

    Our guy just gotta keep shooting, pass less to Young and he’s golden! Once Young gets the ball he doesn’t pass back out.

  • Chipdip

    so he sent out the defence expert … hahaha

  • joyce ward

    Lin needs to get of his agent before his next contract. I hope he wises up..smh

  • JJ Hui

    This is extremely weird! Did Kobe tell BS not to let Lin plays more min so that Lin not bringing Linsanity to embarrass KOBE? This is so annoying!

  • David Kim

    With or without Kobe Lin’s playing minutes are same. LOL

  • Maknusia

    Would there be a time when Coach gets a DNP?!!

  • sport

    Lin needs a big time agent and a better shooting coach!!

  • Ttt

    Take Lin out and Lakers fall behind again!

  • Bearness

    Lin playing 8 minutes in first half with Kobe out? Really?

  • nodomo

    Clarkson is just ballhogging and not playing great D. Yet, BS leaves Clarkson in and took Lin out…?!?!?!?

  • Maknusia

    Yeah, it seems predetermined

  • blubell

    Kobe is not there so yes… lol.

  • Bearness

    BS – DNP Kobe decision

  • Alaingrvis

    lol jordan clarkson 9 minutes lin 8 hahahahaha

  • Bearness

    ROFL tru that

  • james brown

    BS doesn’t need JLIN…theres Young for him and he remember s KOBE of Young!!! sweet memories!!!

  • MoominFloren

    I hate BS, Kobe and everything in Lakers except fans & media

  • Chipdip

    Plus minus from the starters and the bench tells the whole story… BS is totally BS!

  • james brown

    no defense Price!

  • blubell
  • sport

    0 stats Price!!

  • joyce ward

    They might bee trying to get Clarkson some playing time to trade him…just some thoughts

  • Sophie Paris

    I like the interface lol

  • JT

    could be linsanity without Kobe and Lin starting but….NOPE, can’t have Lin shine

  • Bearness

    Lin is going to be highest paid player per minute played in NBA this season at this rate…

  • Chipdip

    Lin came in… got the lead… Lin is out… lost the lead…
    BS, you got that?

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has less minutes then sacre

  • nodomo

    Lin is gonna end the 1st half with the least minute of all 10 Lakers….

  • Maknusia

    He has diff lenses

  • JW

    Lin really pissed off BS with his post game comments. BS putting Lin in the doghouse

  • Alaingrvis

    this auto spell is annoying

  • james brown

    i have nothing against developing , but he’s developing everybody right now EXCEPT….JL!!!!! BS say JLIN doesn’t need to develop, thats why he’s giving him LESS TIME

  • John Lee

    Price -10 Lin +5, just saying.

  • blubell

    Price with the most minute… wth.

  • Alaingrvis

    its been like that for a long long time

  • Sophie Paris

    Then BS losing

  • joyce ward

    Sacre, Clarkson might be playing for trade bait..just sayin..

  • blubell

    What a small man.

  • Briiick

    I just voted for Lin in ASG, to counter the BS.

  • John Lee

    Ain’t fooling no one.

  • Maknusia

    Nice shot from Ellington

  • sport

    BS trying to get Price his double double SMH.

  • blubell

    Nice to be a PG without Kobe and Young on the floor.

  • John Lee

    Davis must be missing Jeremy sorely right now with his 0-4.

  • blubell

    Why is Jeremy in?

  • Maknusia

    lol…Lin got the last 5 sec!!!smh

  • Rick Johnson

    Good at shutting down Lillard.

  • james brown

    dispensable player to foul!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Davis: Can I get my bench role back?
    Boozer: In your dreams.

  • Brent Yen

    Hahahahahha wth was that..

  • Chipdip

    Portland played small; and Lin defended Lil

  • sport

    LMAO, good one!

  • JT

    BS with the mchale like rotations…gotta luv it

  • LAJane

    Good Grief! Well, it shows BS knows who can D. Guess he didn’t want to end the half more than one field goal behind.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Wow Davis and Kelly are still scoreless after playing 15 minutes.

  • Alaingrvis

    mchale was better

  • sport

    Deja vu basketball.

  • 1mtoldman

    mchaleesque

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Why???

  • blubell
  • JW

    Kaman got couple of good block on Davis though

  • Love Lin

    ED has been dreaming back 2 be benched since he got promoted.

  • Chipdip

    hahaha… thank you….

  • blubell
  • sport

    Good that’s what BS get for starting Kelly and Ellington instead of Lin and Young and benching that scrub Price!

  • JW

    just matching up on Portland going small.

  • Chipdip

    Everyone wants to join the bench to play with jeremy

  • sport

    I hate how Lin has to play with Price! BS’s copying Mchale’s way of making Lin ineffective. Lin better not let Price get the ball and look for his shots!

  • joyce ward

    Lin just needs to go in and rebound and shoot and drive.

  • LW

    Hope BS is just saving Lin for the 4th.

  • Alaingrvis

    I’m sorry but stop comparing scott to mchale. scott is far worse then mchale. it also shows you the range of bad coach to great coach. scott is the bottom. mchale is ok gifted by talented players. pop is way way better then mchale but mchale is way way better then scott

  • Alaingrvis

    what ever time lin plays just be efficient and score double figure.

  • Brent Yen

    I feel hem did all that…

  • Chipdip

    Yup another one against five game for Lin but not much else he can do able it right now. Also, that depends on how many more minutes he might get for tonight

  • CJSHYY

    I agree Scott is a lot worst than Mc.. he copy everything Mc did to Lin plus his own evil plan.. smh! As I thought Lin will not get more min.. Well one more than last game in 1st half… smh!

  • joyce ward

    Exactly and look out for #1.

  • chan c

    ‘just got on board… how’s the game and Lin so far?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Every game

  • CJSHYY

    In case Lillard made the shot Lin could be blamed for the shot… smh!

  • Alaingrvis

    5 points 8 minutes

  • MoominFloren

    Don’t think I can bear this drama anymore. I should quit watching NBA until Lin got traded or find a new team in summer.

  • Alaingrvis

    least minutes of the bench

  • JJ Hui

    KB’s calling! BS brown nosing! Just saying!

  • james brown

    both STINK! thats what matter, not who is the least…they don’t know how to coach and think that to foul, you need to wait for 10 second mark!!!LOL! and tell your PG that its your choice to call timeout but if can’t…i don’t know what to do…???LOL!

  • orLinaryjoe

    What, the team? LOL, you know that’s what he is thinking.

  • MoominFloren

    and 2 min less than clarkson……@#$%^!

  • chan c

    whaat? and , i was expecting he’d start in this game… smh

  • CJSHYY

    Not going to happen for sure.

  • John Lee

    Boozer: go ask Sacre.

  • james brown

    again..false hope..if the score is tied, maybe, but if not, BENCH and let price get his points and glory for the STATS, so they can use it to say Price is better than JLIN!

  • Alaingrvis

    mchale is avrage scott is badd. again the gap from badd to get is really really large

  • JW

    he was last sub in for 2nd unit. Clarkson got more minutes I think.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin for the 9moy!!

  • joyce ward

    Lin knows how they do this crooked stuff, he should be ready for this because it doesn’t get any better. I think Scott is an inept coach. I also think that his most of hid nonsensically rotations will have to do with up coming trades. just my opinion.

  • sport

    With a logical no hidden agenda coach yes but with BS forget it!

  • JJ Hui

    BS and KB controlling Lin’s min and make sure no Davis/Lin on the floor together, make sure no beautiful lop and no Linsanity happens so that KB looks good!

  • Brent Yen

    Don u think lin played better?

  • Alaingrvis

    steve blake behind lilard plays 12 minutes lin behind ronnie crap price gets 8

  • John Lee

    BS, horse manure, whatever. No point in comparing which excrement out stinks the other.

  • james brown

    and the 3 stooges (worthy and the 2 other stooges..LOL) doesn’t says the obvious for Lakers to win!!!!

  • Love Lin

    Hate B.Scott but luv Lin.. Trust me, u just cant help urself watching Lin.. 🙂

  • Briiick

    Kobe is BS and BS is Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    i stop watching them a long time ago

  • chan c

    omg… i can’t find words to say…

  • blubell
  • Yascar

    Absolutely completely agree with you. Can’t help myself even if its heart attack city all the time.

  • MoominFloren

    Still watch Lin highlights though

  • C Curtis

    That’s hilarious…. ha, ha.

  • Alaingrvis

    price got 16 minutes

  • sport

    Lin out again?! W the..? He was only in for defense? for end of 2nd quarter?!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Something smells afoul. Must be the kobe bs. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  • nodomo

    byron halftime says he wants fewer TOs. How about benching Kobe since kobe is averaging like 5 TOs per game the last 10 games??

  • cshot

    what is going on? can someone explain to me why this is happening lol? does lin have a lot of TO??? mistakes? bad D? why on earth is he pulled out again?

  • KHuang

    ASIAN

  • cshot

    i figured.

  • JoeTeam

    this is scott’s regular rotation for Lin. He decided with Kobe and Johnson out, he’s trying out other combos. That’s his prerogative as coach, esp to tank. No big deal. Watch for Lin coming in with 3 min left in 3rd.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    They’re behind not because of TOs. They’re behind because they don’t have any defense.

  • JoeTeam

    No, stubborn BSc with his fixed rotations.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I can’t stop laughing.
    Gag!
    Was he given a foul call?

  • sport

    LOL Price keeps falling down on defense, what an embarrassment!

  • KHuang

    Scott trying to DNP CD Lin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    BS is so afraid of winning without KB. He wants to keep the notion that @Lakers needs KB. Then he can continue to babysit aging brick KB.

  • james brown

    BS wants to win without JLIN!

  • Brin

    I’d like to see Lin make a motion of disappointment when he is pulled. Give BS a look like I deserve more minutes instead of walking back to the bench with his head down. May not make a difference with this inept coach, but at least show you want to be in there more. Asked the asst coaches why his minutes are limited, ask them what does he need to do get more opportunities. Not much he can really do though.

  • Rick Johnson

    BScott must have gotten an earful from Kobe after they beat the GSW without him.

  • joyce ward

    Exactly. He is the dumbest coach in the league and much has not been focused on him because nobody cares about Kobe. Lin just needs to go in and continue to play well and drown out the rest of the noise.

  • Alaingrvis

    scrubs play good then watch it fall apart

  • JoeTeam

    Yes m’am!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This Lakers game is ugly.. and not just because my eye candy Jeremy is not in the game. This is ugly in terms of basketball.

  • Brent Yen

    A nice strech of better defense..I am impressed

  • Alaingrvis

    portland is playing down to the scrubs. very low effort

  • MoominFloren

    1st priority is win with Kobe + Lin cannot shine
    2nd is lose without Kobe + Lin cannot shine
    3rd is win without Kobe + Lin cannot shine

  • joyce ward

    who

  • Brent Yen

    The team….

  • JJ Hui

    Really, nobody misses KB or needs KB, he is feeling insecure and real hurt in his own home now! LOL!

  • Chipdip

    Expect Portland to come back big… right after this break

  • JoeTeam

    Boo! from the rabble.

  • AlexBB

    Punishment for Lin and Young for standing up and criricise Kobe??

  • Brent Yen

    Lol…oh well

  • joyce ward

    So both lin/Young have been handcupped?

  • Love Lin

    set the alarm 4 the Q3 w/3 min left.. Lets wait n see..

  • Alaingrvis

    lizard too passive

  • IsabeliJane*17

    How’s Lizard’s tongue? Lemme guess.. autocorrect?

  • KHuang

    No, just punishment of Lin for BEING ASIAN.

    Scott focused on race ejecting the Asian guy.

  • Chipdip

    Oh … he is angry now… watch out

  • KHuang

    But it’s THE TRUTH.

    That’s why Lin’s minutes are steadily decreasing in a predictable way!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    auto spell idc about fixing it lol

  • Pete Roces

    Very few people see it coming, the benching of Lin in LA. Almost all thought that Lin has found a home in LA when news broke out that LA has traded Lin. What a disgusting organization just like the previous ones. When can Lin see daylight in this never ending tunnel…

  • sport

    Such BS, Price need 2 more assists more double double while Lin the better player is benched

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The only reason these starters are going at it is because Kobe is not playing.

  • Yascar

    Ronnie playing well. That means Lin will get even fewer minutes. I can’t believe it’s come down to this. Hope Jeremy just comes out with guns blazing. Play with joy, Jeremy.

  • Chipdip

    he will get it…BS will make sure he has more minutes to get it

  • Rick Johnson

    Starters getting tired. Losing momentum, take them out.

  • JoeTeam

    hmm, Lin not in. First time… Hope he gets all of 4th.

  • Alaingrvis

    they suck regardless have this squad start sooner or later the suck would return

  • IsabeliJane*17

    My issue with Ronnie is he is copying Jeremy’s moves.EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.OF.THEM.

  • Chipdip

    OUt of jeremy’s control. He will be back. Upsetting but I am hopeful things will get better …eventually

  • Pete Roces

    Who wouldn’t play well when given full support by coach and the org?

  • JoeTeam

    I’m leaning your way now that Lin doesn’t look in at all 3rd Q. BSc riding the hot team for once, oh really?

  • KHuang

    Ronnie GETTING KILLED DEFENSIVELY.

    Let’s not pretend Price is better than he is.

  • Chipdip

    BS is resting his best players like Kobe… oh and Lin too… yes… pure BS!

  • sws94

    When you have a guy hot, you can get assists. I think his best assist was to Davis there, most of the assists is just passing to Hill who is hot tonight.

  • sport

    Oh you noticed too?! Quite obvious right!!

  • Maknusia

    its really weird, and there is no balance within 1st and 2nd unit

  • grover chang

    Lakers look fluid. Who knew Kobe is the lakers version of josh smith. Could they just waive Kobe.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    My other issue is he is getting tiny bit better on offense with copying Jeremy’s moves.

  • blubell

    Ridiculous, playing the whole quarter.

  • Brent Yen

    Momentum shifts…time to put the scapegoat…

  • Love Lin

    B.Scott resest his alarm 4 that.. Q3 is almost finished.. 🙁

  • JoeTeam

    the hero …

  • Chipdip

    Now I hope Lin won’t come in until Portland completes the come back….

  • sport

    Doesn’t matter so long as BS is the coach! Wish Lakers would just trade Lin!

  • blubell

    So the most minute Jeremy can get is 20 this game…

  • blubell

    Ouch.

  • Brent Yen

    That s bad…

  • KHuang

    I wrote before the game that Byron Scott is trying to phase Lin out.

    I predicted that Lin would probably get under 20 minutes.

    Scott will continue decreasing Lin’s minutes, even if the Lakers lose.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    No offense Price..I know that hurts,but Jeremy gets hit WAY HARDER THAN THAT BUT HE NEVER COMPLAINS.

  • sport

    BS: Not until my beloved god son Price gets his double double.

  • JJ Hui

    Lin not playing in 3rd quarter? Now BS do you need Lin? Price is injured! Sorry Price, hope it is not serious!

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers will lose this game lin get double figures

  • Brin

    sad that it takes gushing blood from Price’s face to get Lin some minutes

  • Maknusia

    So is Lin coming in for the last 5sec again?

  • Rick Johnson

    Going to have a matching mask with Davis.

  • BScott has no problem extending Price minutes if he plays well.
    Trying to give him double-double to justify his decision to make him start.

    whoops.. Ronnie got elbowed

  • blubell

    Stu really loves Price.

  • Alaingrvis

    we will miss price lol

  • JoeTeam

    lin in. 29 sec good for 5 pts

  • Yascar

    Agree. My consolation is that Damian is doing much much better than Price!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    a lot

  • Chipdip

    To be fair… he did not complain .. that was a big hit and a cut… there goes (may be) his double double…

  • kauaiblue

    I almost thought that moron scott was going to put in clarkson

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Only when there is mess to clean up

  • JW

    God works in mysterious ways

  • sport

    Lin in only for defensive assignments, BS is such a moron!!!

  • Chipdip

    Nick! Wake up!!!!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Mystery god.

  • blubell

    You can hear the sadness in his voice.

  • Chipdip

    God said…NO!

  • Maknusia

    last 30sec then…smh

  • Alaingrvis

    he won’t pass nor can he really

  • I think Price could be done for the game. He went to the locker room

  • sport

    Lin made a call for Young so they can go for a 2 for one but Young missed ><"

  • james brown

    YOUNG so KOBE!!!think he shoots everything that is round!

  • Brent Yen

    So the 3q ends with two airballs

  • jolno

    It shouldn’t take an injury from Price for Lin to be finally subbed in. I guess DNP-CD is really not far away 🙁

  • JoeTeam

    C’mon KHuang, you write that every game for about 10 now. It’s just confirmation bias. Lin has avg about 22 mins in past few games. This one is ‘special’ lol.

  • Love Lin

    a few air balls tonite..

  • blubell
  • bolero

    BS fault for letting price play too long.

  • kauaiblue

    Byron scott is a moron

  • james brown

    BS says to himself..sheeeeeeeet, ruined my Plan! damn!

  • nodomo

    It’s mind-boggling. It wasn’t like Lin was playing bad or anything.

  • Brent Yen

    Well stat wise, it is better to be DNP CD

  • JoeTeam

    lol.

  • sport

    Wait…what happened?! How did Price get injured? LOL did the scrub get injured on defense? Cause he sure as heck didn’t get injured on offense even if he tried!

  • james brown

    stooges too!!!!

  • blubell

    What’s his name from The Wire?

  • Chipdip

    He must be asking someone to patch Price up right now and send him back to get the double double

  • Chipdip

    I call him a lot worst than moron 😉

  • JW

    trying to take a charge. got a blocking call instead and blood nose

  • Yascar

    Like they say, God works in mysterious ways???

  • orLinaryjoe

    Anybody really missing kobe? Only reason game so close.

  • I think TRob’s elbow said NO :]
    I’m careful to not say anything now..

  • joyce ward

    Lin just needs to step up his game and stop passing the ball to ballhog Nick and get his points…smh

  • JoeTeam

    very funny, stu’s partner says LAL leading why. bcuz kobe resting and then he caught himself.

  • sport

    LOL I knew it!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kobe impersonation

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    smh

  • he might get benched soon :]

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Again what in the world is wrong with those FTs?!?!?!

  • Rick Johnson

    Boozer fouls too much.

  • Love Lin

    Hes a team player, he always reminds himself of that.. Smh.. C’mon! Lin. Get some pts 4 urself..

  • Hans

    It’s gotta be a mental block. what’s wrong with his FT??????

  • JoeTeam

    He got hit v hard just before that.

  • Chipdip

    He heard you… haha

  • Maknusia

    most likely not focused

  • sport

    LMAO now Price won’t get his double double, ruined BS’s plan. BS can go cry with Stu!

  • KHuang

    it’s a PHYSICAL BLOCK from being HIT HARD.

  • Chipdip

    YES!

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin!!!

  • Maknusia

    nice!!!

  • blubell

    Attack!

  • JW

    wonder if BS gonna finish game with ellington or lin. or maybe even Clarkson.

  • Brin

    This offense is terrible. How often are they gonna run that same set. Nice lefty lay up kid!

  • blubell

    OMG Boozer.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol and one the boozer push

  • sport

    Booz with the dumb foul ><" 4 point play…

  • Rick Johnson

    As I said, Boozer fouls to much.

  • JoeTeam

    lin’s shot = no foul.
    POR Myers … 4pt play. Really?

  • Promo Sports World

    Get to 12-13 points

  • blubell

    He’s so pushy lol

  • JoeTeam

    jw right … NY very cold. Go away from him.

  • knibb

    Young: Mr. inconsistent.

  • Brent Yen

    Haha hat is wrong with boozer…..someone needs to cuff his right hand..

  • Chipdip

    Young, please pass it… not your night Nick!

  • Promo Sports World

    The love of price is amazing

  • kauaiblue

    Why smh?

  • cali7

    I haven’t looked at stats but I suspect a clear disparity Btwn lin’s minutes at home games and away games

  • Let’s go, JLin!
    Unleash Linsanity in 9 min!

  • joyce ward

    Get your points lin and screw this team and the coaches. Play for your next contract and BTW fire your manager…smh

  • nodomo

    All of Boozer’s fouls are soft push fouls. Weak…

  • JW

    booz barely touch him for the 3+1 though. Lin getting a lot of contact on that layup and no call.

  • Promo Sports World

    12-13 points is all I ask

  • way over-active hands!
    WWF

  • Promo Sports World

    Long overdue the firing manager part

  • Maknusia

    2 3pters would do it

  • Jeremiah

    Price will be subbed in to get DD and lose the game.

  • Chipdip

    Nick if you pass the ball earlier… if … OMG

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I want Jeremy to tire out Damien…..

  • Maknusia

    double nice!….go Lin

  • sport

    LOL Lin got back at Lillard, should’ve dunked that in his face!!

  • Chipdip

    Haha… block Lin’s shot? you made him angry and he stole yours then score!

  • blubell

    Davis cheering for JEremy 🙂

  • Promo Sports World

    Almost there

  • Rick Johnson

    Lillard hasn’t scored since Lin came in.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Davis: Can I get my bench role back?
    Boozer: AYYYYY!!!!

  • sport

    Haha I’m glad Lin is mad and got back at him, should’ve dunked that in his face!

  • KHuang

    Typical Lin vs Lillard.

    The All star gets shut down.

  • Maknusia

    Go Boozer!!!

  • sport

    Nice touch Boozer!

  • Promo Sports World

    12-13 points

  • Rick Johnson

    Had him shut down in the playoffs all 4th quarter until the last 0.6 seconds. LOL

  • Brin

    Lin has gotten so much better at denying the ball. Love that D!

  • Brent Yen

    Hill is so dumb…..he already got position and he went behind the defender…Lin probably was thinking WTH

  • Rick Johnson

    Crabbe trying to get it to Lillard but Lin had him too well covered.

  • Promo Sports World

    Low IQ

  • sport

    Guess there’s always good in everything, by being benched Lin had more time to focus on improving his D.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Right on! Hate to keep seeing Lin has to fight against 4 or 5 portland guys and his team mates not moving to allow him to pass

  • Briiick

    Lin figured out when in Rox.

  • Promo Sports World

    With bated breath geez my god the love

  • Singapore BB Fan

    when was Hill ever smart?

  • Brent Yen

    Like Lin has problem with it…

  • Lin’s explaining the last play to Hill?

  • John Lee

    0.9 sec.

  • sws94

    Hill and Boozer aren’t post players. Lin looking good.

  • Chipdip

    God made a decision to play Jeremy for the 4th quarter. Don’t mess it up, BS!

  • JoeTeam

    Ronnie wanting to wear the Barnes/Davis mask.

  • Promo Sports World

    Steve Blake got 21 minutes behind lillard

  • Brent Yen

    Kudos to Lin not giving up on him

  • orLinaryjoe

    Not good being the smartest player on court.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    or else will strike him dead….oops!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Need to teach him not to walk.

  • Chipdip

    Oh… now BS knows… it would be great… haha

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Announcer: How does Lillard do that?

    Hello he has a good pick from Aldridge.

  • Chipdip

    Where is Davis?????? Come on BS! We need Davis and Lin! NOW!

  • sport

    Now both Lillard and Aldridge are on fire.

  • Alaingrvis

    that was not a ally oop

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy-Davis PnR could answer against Damien-LMA pick and pop… OH WAIT….

  • Brent Yen

    Kudos to Lin not falling for that 4 pt play trap

  • Chipdip

    … and Jeremy has… oh never mind

  • JoeTeam

    I blame Hill. And they need to be playing fast, and that’s not Hill. Get Davis in for Hill, LMA is going to eat him alive now.

  • KHuang

    Lin’s been hit by phantom shooting calls against Portland many times in the past.

  • Alaingrvis

    expected lilard getting hot. scott waits for the lead to be loss to call a time oot. smh

  • Brent Yen

    So he was smart, he walk away…LOL

  • JW

    yea. that should’ve been a miss. and rebound and score for aldrige

  • sport

    Agree, Hill can’t defend and is slow.

  • joyce ward

    How many points does lin have?

  • JoeTeam

    10

  • joyce ward

    Good at least he is double figure again

  • Brent Yen

    They need to run something different

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Freakin’ Lillard has DOUBLE SCREEN on that layup…. sheesh when can Jeremy have at least one of those?

  • Rick Johnson

    We need 4th quarter clutch Lin

  • joyce ward

    I hope he and the bigs figure it out

  • John Lee

    When the Lakers actually hire a coach.

  • Chipdip

    Lin and Hill? We need Lin and Davis…

  • Brent Yen

    Hill is so dumb….oh wait…I just said that

  • JoeTeam

    that prev possession, NY was just not going to pass it to Lin no matter what.

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin will get blamed for not guarding lillard because you know he needs to do it all on D

  • Rick Johnson

    Boozer tired, get Davis in there.

  • Love Lin

    smart Lin.. get FT

  • Chipdip

    BS does not want to win this one without Price there

  • JoeTeam

    Hot … JLin for the win!

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes, finally Davis in for Boozer.

  • JoeTeam

    2 FTs! 12

  • sport

    Clutch FTs by Lin!

  • Alaingrvis

    yes both clutch

  • Lin for lead!
    YEAHHHH!

  • sws94

    Yes, clutch FTS.

  • Promo Sports World

    12 yes

  • Brent Yen

    I find Young sets good screens….

  • Promo Sports World

    3 straight strong games

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Please, Portland bigs are double screening so Lillard can get away from Jeremy.

  • Alaingrvis

    man we ws on the ropes but we survive now to finish

  • Chipdip

    Now Davis? BS, you lost Davis somewhere in the stadium and just found him? you know only 43 seconds left, right? Yes, you are really so BS!

  • orLinaryjoe

    oh…agony of it all. need a stop!

  • Briiick

    With the FTs, Lin is going to warm up.,

  • JoeTeam

    great decision to drive because Swaggy did nothing with it 2 possessions ago, though he did get the 3foul and all 3.

  • sport

    This close game plays right into Lillard’s hand. Might become OT game if both both team makes clutch shots.

  • Thank God Davis is in!

    1 Stop and Lin/Davis for the flush, please!!!!

  • occupatio

    yes

  • anddan

    Lin is sub of the game

  • Promo Sports World

    Man

  • Chipdip

    Nick will try the 3 pter

  • blubell

    it could have been a 2 for 1… Young.

  • Brin

    He just fouled today! I didn’t see him look at BS.

  • JoeTeam

    ok, Lin drive, and 1, into OT. Let’s go!

  • sport

    Please let Lin make the 3 pointer to tie the game please!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lillard is using EVERY BIG OUT THERE as a screen against Jeremy. Crafty..

  • Alaingrvis

    lilard is beast

  • JoeTeam

    I think the announcers said BSc said foul.

  • Promo Sports World

    Lillard has a team jeremy has pickup guys

  • Brent Yen

    And the 2 bigs in our paint can not stop him..

  • nodomo

    the right play is a 2 pt drive to the basket, not a crazy 3 by Nick.

  • blubell
  • Praying for Lin to hit 3 for the OT!

  • Rick Johnson

    If Kobe were in everyone would know who to guard. Now Young?

  • blubell
  • blubell

    LInsanity baby!

  • Maknusia

    missed it!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Dang!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugh!!!!!!

  • sport

    ah come Lin you gotta make that!!

  • JoeTeam

    Dang x2!

  • occupatio

    damn

  • Rick Johnson

    Dang, going to be DNP from now on. SMH

  • argh.. missed but at least he took it

  • Promo Sports World

    Can’t make them all

  • Alaingrvis

    bad shot forced it rather a drive

  • Singapore BB Fan

    consolation!

  • spiderman

    Why didn’t Scott go with his favorite PG?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This game wouldn’t have been this close………ugh!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS rotation problem…I think..

  • james brown

    we want him to shoot it, just like KOBE said its 50/50!

  • JoeTeam

    Seemed to me that Ellington didn’t do a clean inbounds not sure. Definitely should have driving for the and1.

  • Rick Johnson

    Gotta make those in this league to get any respect.

  • sws94

    That step back 3 isn’t his shot.

  • Maknusia

    nice shot!

  • spiderman

    again, this loss is on Scott

  • sport

    Someone has to make a 3!!

  • blubell

    oh well. pad your stats.

  • Smart play to get a quick 2.
    Hope for 1 missed FT and a miracle shot now

    well, 2 missed FTs

  • Tim Pham

    lin’s shot needs to be re-tooled. other than that, he played well. lillard just hit some crazy shots…oh well, it wasn’t like lin was supposed to be playing anyways if not for the price injury. lin isn’t wanted. making that shot wouldn’t have done anything long-term for lin’s career with the lakers

  • Alaingrvis

    the step back three looked wrong on thing lin can work on. was off rhythm

  • JoeTeam

    Not even mad. On that missed 3, Jeremy was just doing what Kobe taught him no big deal.

  • JW

    14 pts and only 2 ast for Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    have to say kobe would of helped today as well as wes on lilard

  • JW

    lillard went crazy hot in those few minutes.

  • Brin

    Lillard took over. He’s got game. Happy Lin was willing to take those shots at then end even if he missed badly.

  • spiderman

    did well with the limited minutes

  • sport

    Kobe would’ve lost the game already by chucking all the shots down the clock!

  • Chipdip

    Wes may be… not Kobe

  • james brown

    again..retooled…its just a missed shot..its us whose overthinking on JLIN’s Game, not him!

  • JW

    man 21 minutes. only cuz price got hurt

  • Promo Sports World

    Lillard going off only makes price seem valuable to the great Byron Scott

  • Maknusia

    AT least Jeremy got his points…with limited minutes! Thats a a BIG PLUS

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe would of slowed the game.

  • KHuang

    Never mind that Lillard went off on Price too.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nyoung shot selections were really bad

  • KHuang

    Another amazing performance by Lin.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    jeremy played the full 4th Qtr? Lillard got some rest in 4Q?

  • Rick Johnson

    Trouble is they had a lead when Price went out. Doesn’t look good for Lin. SMH

  • Chipdip

    Losing to a better team is not a surprise. If Jeremy was deployed better for the game, and if he has Davis with him out there… won’t find out tonight. Frustrating

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Damien was dancing OVER Price defending him ONE-ON-ONE…DON’T EVEN NEED A PICK

    Damien gone hot BECAUSE OF THE DOUBLE SCREENS HE’S RECEIVING TO GET HIS SPACE AWAY FROM JEREMY.

  • JW

    that didn’t matter though. they were all praising price.

  • Promo Sports World

    Exactly but who minds facts

  • sport

    You know you’ve lost the game when Hill is your highest scorer and Price was 2nd highest until he got injured and Lin took over. SMH Lakers could’ve won this if BS was such a stupid idiot. Too bad Price only injured his nose.

  • LW

    Have to say, Lin still cannot match Lillard.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    team…not one-on-one

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Remove his screens and let’s see what Lillard can do.

  • Love Lin

    Yup! Glad hes got pts on the stats at least, that will rebuild his confidence back 4 the next games..

  • Brent Yen

    Shooting 3s…no he can not

  • Promo Sports World

    Lillard is a great shooter and gets solid screens and plays with teammates and has a good coach and ….jeremy is by himself on an island

  • sport

    Lin doesn’t get screens! Lin shut him down when he came in until Lillard got multiple screens.

  • KHuang

    PFFT!!!!!

    Lillard and Aldridge take ALL THE SHOTS for Portland.

    Plus, Lillard has PLAYS run for him.

    Let’s not pretend that Lin got his butt kicked out there.

  • chan c

    oooh ,close , winnable games like this keep piling up.

    with kobe out , why can’t this coach use Lin properly?

  • Briiick

    This game could have been won, if Scott didn’t coach as if Kobe were still on the floor.

  • JoeTeam

    see above … also, it is different. They had more TOs. See how much they played into the fouling game? Missed 3 was the killer. Should have driving in for the 2 and1 OR dump to a big if he got coverage. Oh well. Had he made that, game over.

  • Alaingrvis

    what about rose going off on price a few weeks ago. laker especially without kobe aren’t respected. people go easy then when it matter turn it on. bulls did it. gsw failed because of it. lilard was passive as i said but i knew it wouldn’t last

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    3 for 13 Young?

  • Promo Sports World

    Ryan Kelly got 26 mins

  • Love Lin

    Lillard was on his monster mode..

  • occupatio

    lin got the shot he wanted, but was not composed

  • Promo Sports World

    Again Ryan Kelly

  • JoeTeam

    he was v inefficient for a F.

  • KHuang

    Because Coach Scott is trying desperately to EJECT THE ASIAN GUY.

    If Lin played more, this game would’ve been won!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kobe impersonation….that’s what I said…

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Lin didn’t tighten up.

    He just KEPT PLAYING.

  • sport

    I wanted 18 pts or more but Lin did miss some shots. His form still needs work.

  • spiderman

    a donkey does what he’s destined to do

  • james brown

    some of his sub pattern was not in harmony with his principle now that Kobe is out…his plan is really to lessen the impact of Jeremy, by letting him stay on the bench until he becomes cold or indifferent. that way he will lose the grit to play, but unfortunately, Price his LOVED and Fav GUY, took a fall, so no choice.it seems the last 3 point shot was not made for him, because he was not squared for that, how ever, Kobe says RELAX, you make it, GOOD if not go on with your life!

  • kauaiblue

    Never thought id saybthis but i looked forward to houston games more than lakers… and mchale was actually better than scott is… smh

  • sport

    In fact Lillard got most of his points on Price!

  • chan c

    easily… yes.

  • JoeTeam

    don’t think so. He wanted to go in and pulled back when he changed his mind. Should have gone in for the and1 or dump to a big. I’ll have to watch that reply … really seemed like a broken play because he couldn’t get out clean (think he got hit on the way out). Not sure.

  • KHuang

    I saw Lillard drop something like 40+ on the SPURS.

    The whole Spurs team couldn’t stop Lillard when the Blazers ran every play through him.

    Lin actually guards Lillard better than the Spurs do.

  • Briiick

    What are you talking about ? Does the coach ever empower Lin enough and let him get hot ?

  • joyce ward

    This was a predicted to loss. Scott did not insert lin ineo the game in earlers times becaues he wa strying to get his price precious time playing. Lin did good and came in and made a difference. Lakers held there own against a team with a 26-8 record.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy plays hard and the last 3 games have been solid for him….keeps his value going up and that’s all he has to do

  • Brent Yen

    But I like to see Lin creating his own shots…rather than getting pass from others…

  • LW

    Lakers lost the lead in the final minutes with Lillard scoring 3’s and layups while Lin just chased after him. He can do it by himself which Lin couldn’t.

  • KHuang

    Give SOME credit to Portland and their playoff caliber defense!!!

  • CaliUSMC

    He’s averaging 14pts. Not bad!

  • kauaiblue

    14 ok with me

  • occupatio

    lin — 21 minutes for this game. ugh

    price, 27

  • Promo Sports World

    Scott is horrible and learning about the GM’s family tragedy today there really is no plan in laker land other than selling kobe tix

  • blubell

    only because Price got injured.

  • chan c

    Ugh!

  • KHuang

    Trust me, McHale and Scott are equally bad.

    It’s just that McHale had a better team in Houston than Scott has in LA, so Lin had better players to work with despite McHale’s horrifically bad coaching.

  • occupatio

    i missed that. when did that happen?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin never on the floor without Kobe or young. Smh

  • Promo Sports World

    Ryan Kelly got 26 man lol

  • KHuang

    ME TOO!

  • Love Lin

    40+ on the Spurs? the beast.. Lin did his job 2 guard Lillard well tonite..

  • sport

    13 FGAs is Young’s average and I’m fine with that! Young didn’t chuck many shots and passed the ball. top10 players shoot between 12-15. 13 FGAs is what I want Lin to take every game as well!

  • Brin

    I look forward to future matchups with Lillard and Lin when the situations are a little more equal. Lin never gets that many screens and plays run for him. Lillard has willed his team to so many wins this year, he is a clutch player. Lin can definitely match him in the right situation though, I really believe that.

  • JoeTeam

    I thought Lin was awesome in D, denying Lillard the ball, cheating where possible to help the helpless bigs (causing that one TO near end), and fighting through screens. Myers .. is he German? Wouldn’t want to try to fight through a big German. Anyway, Hill and Booz missed some open shots that let POR get hot.

  • KHuang

    We know Scott is pathetic when Ryan Kelly who hasn’t played all season long and is totally out of synch and out of shape is getting way more minutes than friggin’ Jeremy Lin who nearly saved the game!

  • Brent Yen

    Young would take that shot too…might not be airballed, but still the same….really….

  • JW

    Still has the 2nd highest scorer with limited minutes. after Hill’s 23

  • blubell

    last 35 second of 3Q.

  • CaliUSMC

    Him and Young lost the game for us.

  • james brown

    yes no match for Lillard for being given ample opportunity with 1-2-3 picks so he can penetrate of shoot the ball, but lin has to make do of the seeming pick randomly given to him. LIllard was guarding JLIN and JLIN scored many points also, they can’t stop each other for they are good players, one in a good system, the other one in a bench system!LOL!

  • Promo Sports World

    But he is a stretch 4 man lol

  • occupatio

    it was a good look. had enough space to shoot

  • KHuang

    Lin doesn’t need the multiple screens the way Lillard does.

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    Calm down myself first….ok LAL was on back-to-back. I think Lin done a great job!
    20mins – 14pts (-2) Not complaining.

  • JoeTeam

    this is right – we need to see Lin properly scripted and screened for to see him shoot more clutch. Right now it’s all created in rhythm by himself, and that’s just too easy for him to get a challenge.

  • Chipdip

    I wonder how Ed Davis is feeling right now. He only played 27 min and had 4 pts. Hope he will make some noise and we can see him playing along side with Jeremy in future games.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lillard didn’t do it by HIMSELF. He got screens and DOUBLE SCREENS.

  • JW

    I think he got so many minutes cuz wes is out

  • KHuang

    Uhh, PROBABLY would be airballed.

    Portland CAN DEFEND.

  • Guest

    Yes, the rotation problem like Singapore BB Fan said! Davis should have come in much earlier!

  • JoeTeam

    He hasn’t had them last 3 years, except for Asik sometimes.

  • CaliUSMC

    What was said?

  • occupatio

    any news about how serious price injury is?

  • JoeTeam

    No kobe to feed him?

  • blubell

    11 stitches

  • james brown

    one cannot stop a good player at his best..he’s a shooter and a proven one, you can take only what you can do , but to stop him, maybe “IN YOUR DREAMS!”

  • sport

    Young never got into rhythm thanks to BS’s bad rotation and benching Lin! Lin would’ve gotten Young open earlier in the game for him get hot and come through at times like these!

  • KHuang

    ACCURATE post!

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    Lillard and Wes Mathews like lin a lot and if he had to backup Portland would be a nice spot

  • occupatio

    that doesnt necessarily mean missing games. stitches where?

  • JW

    Lin should work on that tight screen and pop from 3. Those are tough to stop and can draw ticky tack fouls.

  • CaliUSMC

    How do you know this?

  • KHuang

    Yes, the Spurs threw EVERYBODY at Lillard and he just roasted them.

    Lin covers Lillard better than anybody in the NBA.

  • blubell

    Nose region.

  • Brent Yen

    Of course, the point is air ball or not makes no differences…except it looks bad

  • Alaingrvis

    i hate the lakers shot so off rhythm bail out shots. atlas with harden pass shots he gt the ball to just shoot or drive. very panicky type of play by the lakers last 5 minutes. there sets are terrible and never work.

  • Chipdip

    Lillard is one of he best PG and he also has a TEAM to play with him, giving him great screen. Lin has to play against 5 most of the time and that “time” is limited. If Price was not hurt and can’t continue, Lin will be benched for the second half most likely…

  • Brent Yen

    yep….it was so good, in rhythm….too bad too short.

  • occupatio

    he will come back with mask and minutes

  • Promo Sports World

    Look at last year’s playoffs at lillard and Wes comments on Lin much props

    Also Adidas connection

  • occupatio

    not just short. it veered right

  • kauaiblue

    Yeah… both r pretty bad clueless coaches in the nba!

  • JW

    he didn’t wanna come out from locker room since he keep getting beat by lillard

  • KHuang

    So what, we are LIN FANS and we don’t give a hoot about fake price for Ronnie Price.

    We Lin fans are NBA FANS who know who plays and who can’t.

  • james brown

    he can’t shoot face to face with Jlin fronting him , thats why Lillard plays hard when he’s playing against Jeremy..good competition and energize both of them to play hard and smart!

  • KHuang

    Portland TOYING with the Lakers for 3 quarters, then went hard in the 4th.

    That’s what better teams do against weaker ones.

  • blubell

    BS will insist.

  • Brent Yen

    Not sure was left or right…but yes…one of it…LOL

  • sport

    Lin can learn from Young to draw fouls on 3 point shots.

  • KHuang

    No Lin either.

  • Brent Yen

    true…

  • kauaiblue

    Shot is bad… his elbow is flare which causes bad rotation… his setup takes way to long… he had space and defender affected his shot

  • chan c

    this coach is still oblivious to how deadly can this Lin-Davis connection be… smh
    why? why? why in the world can’t he see that???

  • Singapore BB Fan

    No pass back 🙁

  • JoeTeam

    that’s for sure …

  • kauaiblue

    Anyone know what he said?

  • KHuang

    Lin “looks bad” to most dumb NBA observers even when he’s winning games.

    EVERYBODY can airball shots against playoff teams in the clutch. EVERYBODY.

  • james brown

    that’s why lakers lost, because their defense specialist was being ball roomed by Lillard,LOL!

  • CaliUSMC

    Rose, Parker, and Lillard… are the All-Star PG’s that keeps giving Lin props. Nice!

  • Chipdip

    He also gave great comments about Jeremy tonight after the game

  • sport

    I still remember how Lillard dissed the scrub Pat Bev on how he does things that aren’t basketball LMAO.

  • KHuang

    Oh, he sees it.

    That’s why Scott WON’T ALLOW Lin and Davis to go off.

  • kauaiblue

    No backup

  • occupatio

    he had plenty of space to get shot off after the hard drive and step back. lillard didnt really affect the shot.

  • blubell

    Yup and admitted Jeremy was giving him a hard time. Must be the Adidas connection 🙂

  • KHuang

    Lin CANNOT DRAW FOULS off shots.

    He routinely gets hit on shots with no call or the offensive foul.

  • Promo Sports World

    Not ideal I know but there is no shame in backing up lillard and the Blazers play 2 pg sets

  • chan c

    sigh… ‘really , really frustrating…

  • Alaingrvis

    young was terrible today

  • Brent Yen

    The fact that Lin took that shot. I really think Lin is making progress…If Lin take that shot again given similar situations. I will say his game is completely evolved.

  • Brewkowski

    Wished Young showed up – only shot 3/13

  • kauaiblue

    Made him hurry the shot… he air balled

  • blubell
  • sport

    Just be happy Lin doesn’t have to play with that scrub Price at the same time!

  • james brown

    not even on BS DREAMS!…look at how he gave jeremy his time…nadda!!!!if not for the injury, Price will take these lost and be happy for his production and time kobe’s puppet loved that he is Right about PRICE!

  • joyce ward

    Not t mad at lin at all . I am so glad that he got his 14 points and according to the NBA he is a bench player going against one of the premier PG’s in the league and lin missing that shot should not be a big deal because after al he is bench player. The way that lin has been playing lately and if he keeps it up, he will have no problem on landing a contract where the Lakers will have to compete to keep him..I love it. GO lin. Very proud of him tonight. He is learning.

  • JW

    then why even bother playing with that kind of attitude.

  • Chipdip

    Lin’s 14 pts is second only after Hill who played 32 min vs Lin’s 21 min.

    Lin has more minutes than Sacre (14) and Clarkson (15) only. (If Price was not hurt, wonder how many min Lin would get.)

  • blubell

    He likes game winners. Of course he’s going to take it ;

  • Singapore BB Fan

    tomorrow? to get a the face mask molded?

  • KHuang

    And it isn’t as if Lillard can stop Lin at all either.

  • occupatio

    shot was in rhythm. i wouldnt call it especially rushed

  • Brent Yen

    But that was for game tying….LOL

  • kauaiblue

    Agreed… how can u not see it??

  • sport

    Lin deserves his own team and to start!

  • Chipdip

    3 for 13 and -8 in 27 min. AGree!

  • Brent Yen

    15

  • james brown

    seems the plan was to play jeremy the half of the 4th for his usage time and then Price will sub to finish the game.thats what i read from BS actions on court today!

  • KHuang

    If Price was not hurt, Lin would’ve received about 15 minutes.

    That was Scott’s plan before the game.

    Everybody can see that Scott is desperately trying to phase Lin out before the trading deadline so that the Lakers can waive Lin.

  • Briiick

    I guess BS’s plan is to lose all games Kobe doesn’t play, at least from the rotation. Tonight was an exception because Price couldn’t get back.

  • blubell

    which eventually will lead to game winning shot… come on Brent lol.

  • Chipdip

    Yup… probably right … same as rookie Clarkson

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    In only 21 min

  • Brent Yen

    Haha Linsanity!!!

  • KHuang

    Because Lin is so damn good, he can play through the hateful refereeing.

  • Brewkowski

    Kaman took him to school. Yes, Chris Kaman.

  • sport

    Same here, not being able to play with Lin to get easier open shoots hurt his game for sure.

  • KHuang

    Sometimes shooters shoot themselves down.

    This is the NBA where there really isn’t such thing as a “great shooter”!

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Now … THAT… I actually not mind to see they waive Lin 😉

  • Promo Sports World

    I wish the same my friend

  • Brent Yen

    Scott has been consistent. 7-8 in both Half. The only way Lin crack 20m is to grab the final 6 minutes

  • KHuang

    If Lin gets waived, he might end up on this Portland team!!!

  • sport

    Don’t mind see Lin leave this racist coach and crappy team!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nick gotta stop abusing shots.

  • joyce ward

    I told you guys that Young would not show up.He is a streaker shooter at best with a lot of hype from the LA media.

  • Chipdip

    Someone has to take it… Kobe not there… it would be Nick but his shots really bad tonight and probably a defence target anyway… so it defaulted to Jeremy

  • blubell

    Now you’re getting it 🙂

  • KHuang

    That’s right, throw the bench player under the bus and blame him for losing the game.

    Never mind Young and Kelly’s and Boozer’s bricking!

  • kauaiblue

    He was rushed. .. watch it again

  • Brin

    He really just needs a coach who believes in him. Like to see him work on that step back three. Not knowing the compensation he needs to make with lift tells me he has no muscle memory for that type of shot.

    We never see him shoot a step back three. He also rushed it since Lillard recovered pretty well and probably was thinking about the block Lillard had on him earlier in the game.

  • james brown

    well, they have the microphones and the buddy buddy press, and they could say whatever they like to say, for as long as they have the coverage!!!we live at it at the moment and just wait for this kind of opportunity. we saw how fate suddenly turns around when injustice and prejudice at the helm, just like PFV said, JLIN is at the threshold of something great that are ready to happen!

  • sws94

    Lin can take that shot but from closer range. He’s not used to making that move and shooting a 3. With practice he can make that shot, but it is a 3 point shot. That is a shot Young is used to taking and sometimes making.

  • I’d like to hear how Lin described his 3 attempt.
    If it was planned or he didn’t feel good about it.

    But can’t complain he got the shot attempt. Both Lin and Young (1-4 on 3, 3-13 FG) couldn’t make it today

  • JW

    don’t remember, but were most of his shots well contested?

  • LW

    I am sure there are a lot of but and if’s for Lin and he is as good a PG as Lillard. But as of now, he just doesn’t have the 3pt shooting that Lillard has. And this alone separates them.

  • Promo Sports World

    I like

  • Chipdip

    That would be great… a backup to Lillard is quite alright for this supporter. Many Lin fans may not like it.

  • KHuang

    Chris Kaman is an aged but HIGHLY SKILLED center who can really play.

  • occupatio

    point is that shot is as good a look as you are going to get in that situation, unless the defender makes a major mistake. it was a good look. not sure what your point is. you seem to expect it to be wide open with all day to shoot.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I don’t like that play. Lillard needed screen so did Lin.

  • Brent Yen

    To be fair, Scott needs to find better set for Young too

  • KHuang

    That’s OK, it would only be for a few months anyway.

    Then Lin would walk onto another team!

  • sport

    Nick wasn’t abusing shots he took 13 shots like he always does and was passing the ball. I actually want Lin to do the same, cause he’s never going to get high PPG if he takes less than 10 shots per game, 12-15 shots are the average for top players of the league!

  • james brown

    well admit that Lillard got hot putting 3 or 4 3’s late in the 4th Qrt. just how the the game played, look ahead for the next game!

  • sws94

    Lilliard makes the most of his screens. Why can’t coaches that Lin plays for get him screens? Lin needs to maybe call for them more, I’ve noticed Kobe does.

  • Brewkowski

    But he can do no wrong. The media and fans love his happy go lucky attitude.

    I’ve always wanted to use that phrase… happy go lucky.

  • Chipdip

    He is consistently being inconsistent

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lin was open but he looked uncomfortable doing a step back three

  • JW

    Lin almost didn’t come in at all in the 3rd qtr.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He needs a better talk. Nick would never to take shot like that in San antonio

  • james brown

    got 21 minutes also last game, so nothing sinister today…said BS!

  • Brent Yen

    Lin said he worked on that shot, just did not get the balance…oh well…Jeremy, let’s take more

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dude, he got hot because the Portland bigs are screening you out so he can break away from you.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Suck isn’t it?

  • sws94

    It was too short, he tried to stroke it but he didn’t have enough oomph on it.

  • blubell
  • sws94

    They play better as a team and can free up their PG. But Lilliard is special clutch now, and very, very confident.

  • Brent Yen

    Well…..that’s what lost balance meant

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    No, let Young SHOOT.

    In the NBA, your good shooters are going to have bad shooting nights every now and then.

    Young doesn’t need to change his game one bit.

  • Alaingrvis

    what i thought looked weird. still keep working get better this year don’t matter lakers should lose and did lose

  • Chipdip

    Yes… he needs to take more shots!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nice politic

  • JW

    he still need to hit those shots. he has a knack for them

  • kauaiblue

    No he was bothered by defender… otherwise he air balled due to what?

  • sws94

    The way to succeed is through failure. MJ said so.

  • PPP

    I like he used”we” instead of “I”.

  • Brin

    no way he gets waived. don’t get our hopes up

  • JW

    always staying positive. unfortunately the coach is working against him.

  • Briiick

    And the resistance is, KoBS.

  • blubell

    So without Kobe, Jeremy is the first one to be interviewed. lol. He’s just a bench player barely playing 20 mins. This is so BS.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Damien Lillard is nearly on par with Stephen Curry as far as hitting shots off multiple screens.

    Neither player can get it done on his own, but they are the best in the NBA at using double screens to free themselves for shots.

  • kauaiblue

    Good size too

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not what I meant at the number, it’s bad look n clock

  • JW

    u mean it’s not Hill, the high scorer? or Price, the assist leader?

  • KHuang

    TRUTH

  • Brent Yen

    Because today they lost 2 starters….it is an anomaly

  • Briiick

    Ok, time to vote for Lin before going to the bed.

  • Alaingrvis

    well lin is headed in the right direction

  • KHuang

    It’s more that Portland is a TERRIFIC defensive team and they’re gonna shut down a lot of people.

    Only Jordan Hill and Jeremy Lin were not shut down this game.

  • KHuang

    NO SCREENS FOR THE ASIAN GUY.

  • blubell

    What happened to Django Unchained. LOL.

  • Brent Yen

    This is the difference between Lin and Young. Lin knows it is good to NOT having Kobe while Young saying they needed Kobe

  • james brown

    JLIN has proven even in houston that he can make those 3’s also (AKA..clutch shots at the dying seconds of the final quarter) . the point at hand right now, Lillard is being groomed to succeed, while JLin is being groomed to….somewhat overthink his situation, confuse him on his talents and skill, kill his energy and grit so as to accept less pay and a back up PG position . which of the 2 you think will have a breakaway games…????

  • occupatio

    young looks up to kobe

  • JW

    and that’s why I think Lin need to practice those shots for next season. It is very hard to guard against.

  • KHuang

    Why wouldn’t Lin be waived?

    The Lakers keep reducing his minutes every game.

    Even with Price’s injury, Lin HARDLY PLAYED today.

  • Brent Yen

    Lillard can not guard Lin one on one…

  • kauaiblue

    8th man got 9 in 4th qtr… mr 4th qtr!

  • Alaingrvis

    yea team has zero idea what to do late

  • blubell

    and Kobe looks down at Young. It all works out.

  • Brewkowski

    Wow, you’re right. I’m surprised based on the amount of mins Lin played.

  • Brent Yen

    LMAO

  • KHuang

    Often, Kobe Bryant is a GREAT SCAPEGOAT when the Lakers play bad basketball in the 4th.

    Besides, the Lakers DON’T DESERVE TO WIN for having benched Lin so long.

  • blubell
  • Brin

    He rushed it a bit because he remembered Lillard blocked him earlier. He looked balance, but needed to use his legs more. Learning experience. He rarely shoots 3’s with his momentum going backwards like Young, who does that on every shot practically. Something to work on. Just glad he is taking these shots, that’s the big takeaway here

  • KHuang

    Lakers DIDN’T DESERVE TO WIN.

    Benching Lin cost the Lakers the game.

    Everybody is focused on Lin’s end game issues when the real problem is Lin NOT PLAYING EARLY.

  • JoeTeam

    hehe, GSW beating Westbrook by up to 30 … 5/21 22 pts. Kobe style.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This what bs is good at, find way to justify Kobe ball hogging.

  • occupatio

    he airballed cuz he airballed. its not as if batum was defending him. youre making unncessary excuses for lin. he missed.

  • Brent Yen

    No…I think it was not rushed, he was in thythm. He simply hopped back too much….

  • Brewkowski

    Yeah, I was expecting to see a lot of Lin. If it wasn’t for Price’s injury, I don’t think Lin would’ve had 15 mins.

  • Brent Yen

    word

  • james brown

    bull!!! he’s just justifying his incompetence on the guise that they lost because…BUT IF he made those shots..i’m surely he will utter with a loud mouth (breath so bad) that he’s the MAN!!! and KOBE , pls REST!…that’s what arrogant people says when they can’t justify their arrogance. of course even if they win, JLIN will always say, that a KObe in the team is Better than no KObe!

  • KHuang

    ANY player will badly miss clutch shots against quality defenses like Portland.

    ALL players have to practice those Lin style shots, regardless of who the opponent is.

  • Love Lin

    He knows exactly when the proper time is 4 brown nosing..hehe

  • Brent Yen

    There is no Lin’s end game issues…

  • kauaiblue

    Bad form, hesitation and rushed. .. why r we arguing… lol

  • CJSHYY

    He said so to let Kobe knows .. PR talk.. last time when he said something like just pass me the ball… next game he got so less ball… he knows what to say… Kobe always read all the news…

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s post game interview

  • Maknusia

    Yes, all his 10 shots were contested, and he made 2

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He won’t have that kind of shot ever again. It was a poison play designed by bs.

  • Brent Yen

    I know, but I believe there is some truths in it that he is believing…

  • Brewkowski

    Yes, Davis looked really thin against Kaman.

  • JW

    was there simply not a lot of PNRs? Is it cuz the defense doesn’t allow it or the coach does not believe in them?

  • occupatio

    is it just me or does lin get more topless interviews than others? journalists just hound him

  • Brent Yen

    Why not? Maybe next time, it will be a half court step back…and he will make it.

  • blubell

    Kobe won’t like this… it’s Kobe’s team, Hill. lol.
    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/552343120126685184

  • Maknusia

    lol…for a moment @BrentYen forgot about Linsanity…I guess thats what ROX and LAL does to us, fans, sigh

  • Brent Yen

    hahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • KHuang

    The media is pretending there is, from Scott criticizing Lin’s shot this game to Kobe screaming at Lin to all sorts of other LINFRACTIONS that Lin gets SCAPEGOATED for.

  • Brent Yen

    That was not the style of the 80s.

  • POR PostGame thread is now open!

    Jeremy gave his best shot while not giving many min before Price’s injury in the 3rd quarter.
    He missed the big 3 but he’ll get another big shot in the future. He finished with respectable 5-10 shooting for 14pts (2nd highest scorer after JHill) in only 21 in

    http://www.jlinportal.com/g35-lal-por-postgame-thread/

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I know. Journalists should have at least some decency to let the guy get some shirt first.

  • joyce ward

    When it is convenient. If young was hitting all of his shots, he would have not given Kobe second notice. This about about Young not producing tonight and he is looking for a scapegoat to save face with the LA media, because he has been so hyped up by him., nothing more. I said earlier today that Young would choke in this game because he was going to try to imitate kobe and not play his game.

  • Brent Yen

    it is just dumb…I do not think Lin could get any better shot there.

  • occupatio

    seriously

  • KHuang

    Byron Scott is an outdated 80s coach who has found out the hard way that 80s style pick and rolls don’t work in today’s game due to the abolishment of the hated illegal defense rule.

  • occupatio

    young is certainly mini kobe, or wishes to be

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yes…..I think I’m serious.

  • Brewkowski

    There’s been games where they were both on the floor and Price played point and didn’t pass to Lin.

  • Maknusia

    thats not a nice thing to say

  • occupatio

    i meant i was agreeing hah

  • Love Lin

    U rnt IJ tonite, take off ur mask.. ha

  • Yura

    I missed most of game. Jordan Hill did amazing tonight? How did this happen?????????

  • JW

    just crazy how we were raving on how Lin and Davis PNR were so great. and they don’t do much in the offense. And keeping those 2 apart as well.
    Kobe did a few PNR w/ Davis on the last game though.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    But I AM IJ… 🙂

  • Brin

    I would be very surprised even with the reduced minutes. I think they are still considering trying to sign him to a deal after this year so find that hard to believe and someone in that FO must be able to see his value both on and off the court

  • JC

    Lost by 4 points to the 2nd highest win team in WC on a btb game, I think lakers did pretty good tonight.

  • joyce ward

    The shallow me speaking…kind of like it….Trust me I am not complaining at all..LOL

  • JW

    I think cuz they interviewing him early so he hasn’t got a chance to dressed.

  • nodomo

    This is really mind-boggling. If Scott isn’t going to play Lin at all ( less than 10 min from Q1-Q3), why bother drawing up 2 plays for him at the end of the game with the game on the line? I don’t see Scott drawing up that play specifically for Price or Ellington. Nick maybe. What it tells me is when the game is on the line and Scott needs a quick 2, he went with Lin because Lin was the best option (against Lillard I might add). So why sit him so much in the 1st 3 quarters??? Makes no sense.

  • Brin

    Really? I need to see it again, but it just seemed like Lillard’s recovery made him rush it like he was surprised by how close he got to him. He had created a good amount of space and it just closed up so quick

  • Maknusia

    He did, he had the highest usage rate, without Kobe

  • Maknusia

    lol, as i said earlier, nothing makes sense in LAL….i’m not gonna analyze any deeper, will take as it is.

    Hence, Jeremy did well with whatever given minutes

  • chan c

    Yeah! I see brighter days ahead… 🙂

  • Guest

    ‘makes me wanna strangle him… and i’m christian …LOL ha ha ha

  • joyce ward

    Stop analyzing the last shot lin took and missed. it happen he played a great game to the wire, but some fans want to focus on the negative,. This has to stop. Give Lin props on how he was marginalized for most of the game, but he brought the team into a missed shot probably on winning the game. The Trailblazers are a 27-8 team in the NBA and one of the leaders in the Western Conference. Lakers have an inept coach who caters to certain players egos, which does not give the rest of the team a level playing field. Sott and the Lakers can screw themselves if they try to lay this on a bench player that played 21 minutes. Even Lilliard/Matthews gave lin propst on his game tonight. Many claim to come here with a balanced critique on his game, which is not often case.. I myself often find myself falling into that negative narrative about lin’s game,
    How about we speak some positives of his game tonight. I have to give props to him because he was marginalized for most of the game, but he came in with 5 points and ended with 14 points in 20 minutes. You go Lin

  • cindystar111

    if BS played lin longer minutes or allowed him to pnr with davis, portland won’t be able to stop him either. it’s crazy haters blame it on lin. he got 14 with only 20min play time, imagine how many points he would score if allowed to play like 36mins.

  • joyce ward
  • sws94

    Lin did OK. So he missed the 3. Even an open 3 is a low percentage shot. That was one where he did a one-on-one move and didn’t have the balance and probably lift that he wanted so it fell shorter than it could have. The team probably over-achieved tonight and Portland didn’t really have a monster game from LMA. They did from Lillard. So, good for Lillard, and you play the next game. I thought the Lakers looked pretty good without Kobe. Price played OK but gets too many minutes but I hope he’s OK. He took a nasty elbow to his face.

  • Maknusia
  • joyce ward

    Kobe has a real problem with lin, but Kobe’s problem is that he doesn’t have the leverage with the NBA or Lakers F/O as he one did, so he is scrambling trying 2 make himself relevant in the game today,

  • sws94

    Another masked Laker.

  • Maknusia

    Exactly, imagine the agony a player has to go thru sitting on bench for 2Qs! And then he has to come out strong and perform when the game is at stake! Jeremy did extremely well.

  • Maknusia

    I think his confidence is up…we had seen that in the last 4 games or so…he is shooting more and even more on contested shots.

    he just needs re-focusing on his FTs

  • Filler-up

    I don’t get it. Lin got torched this game with no help from the bigs. So how much worse would he have done last year?

  • Filler-up

    9th man. Even Sacre got in to the game before Lin.

  • Filler-up

    BS is not racist just dumb.

  • Filler-up

    Maybe Coach felt Lin was tired on BTB and so rested him to get a good 20 min out of him rather than a mediocre 28 min.

  • Filler-up

    All Kobe has to say is “Coach, we need to watch the pace because I ain’t gonna last running up and down playing like this.” Coach gets it and pulls Jeremy when he gets overly aggressive (in this game he was pulled after driving too far into the lane and getting trapped).

  • JJ Hui

    Honestly, you are new, history didn’t agree with your logic!

    Well rested days before games also the same! I wish BS has the positive thinking like you, that result will be they are the top 8 teams in the west!

    Think about sitting so long and dont see playing time, how is your emotion? How is your body feeling if you are human!

  • JAD2456

    Because Price got hurt at the end of the 3rd quarter, so Scott had to play Lin the whole 4th quarter. Otherwise, Price played pretty well last night, he wouldn’t waste a chance to bench Lin more.
