G36 LAL @ LAC Game Thread

With Ronnie Price out, Jeremy is scheduled to start for the Lakers

It might or might not help JLin because he’s been comfortable leading the 2nd unit. Plus Kobe will dominate the ball more which might reduce Jeremy’s effectiveness

Whatever it might be, keep Smi-Lin & Let’s Go JLin!

    The Glory 😀

  • HY C

    I thought BS said Kobe will rest today, no?

    BTW, I’ve just donated $50.

  • Sophie Paris

    He rested the last game.

  • Thanks!
    Hm, it gives an idea. Maybe we’ll take up collection for lakers so Kobe rest 1 game and feature Lin, Davis so Lin gets 40pts+ =)

  • Maknusia

    *clap*

  • Grace

    JLIn is starting. Go Jeremy!!!

  • HY C

    Yes, I know, but I remember BS will rest Kobe in today’s game, too.

  • 1mtoldman

    speaking of point guards putting up a lot points; the rockets are having their hands full with clev. tonite largely because kyrie irving has already put up 30 on mr. elite d; with 5 minutes left in the third.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    @psalm234:disqus Will make donation when I have time to figure out how to transfer money from my US bank account. Haven’t used it for years and have never it from this site to my US account. Believe I still have 11 days to figure this out:-)

  • Brent Yen

    So Kobe always rest against good teams?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL He just want to be a hero in winnable teams:-)

  • Dorothy

    love your new picture. adorable kids.

  • Brent Yen

    Thanks!!!!!!!

  • Yascar

    I’m apprehensive about this game, I think J will be out of sorts as a starter. Hope he stays aggressive. C’mon Jeremy!!

  • Maknusia

    Bcoz he wants JL to shine…hmmm

  • Sophie Paris

    Would be awesone then !!! 🙂

  • Sophie Paris

    Here is what you need to know before the Lakers’ “road” game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

    1) With Ronnie Price (broken nose, flu) listed as doubtful against the Clippers, Jeremy Lin will likely make his first start since Dec. 5. Lin averaged 11.9 points and 4.9 assists in 20 games as a starter, while managing 9.0 points and 4.1 assists in 15 off the bench. However, Lin has amped his game up in his last three contests, averaging 14.7 points on 53.3 percent shooting with 3.0 assists and 1.7 steals.

    2) Both teams employ one of the league’s top free throw shooters, as Jamal Crawford (90.9 percent) ranks fourth, and Nick Young (90.8 percent) is sixth. Crawford has been excellent at the line in his last eight games, going 33-for-35 (94.3 percent). However, Young has been even better recently, knocking down all of his last 18 foul shots and shooting 45-for-46 (97.8 percent) in his last 14 games.

    3) The Lakers have struggled lately against their STAPLES Center co-tenants, dropping eight of their last nine matchups against the Clippers, including each of their past four. Most recently, the Lakers fell on Halloween night, 118-111, as Blake Griffin led the Clippers to a fourth-quarter comeback with 39 points.

    4) The Lakers (23.6) and Clippers (23.0) rank first and second in the league in pull-up points per game, led by Chris Paul (8.9) and Kobe Bryant (8.5), who are also the NBA’s top two in pull-up scoring. The difference has been efficiency, as the Clippers lead the league in pull-up shooting percentage (40.9), while the Lakers clock in at 11th (37.5).

    5) Per usual, Paul has been one of the best passers in the NBA, ranking fourth in assists (9.5), while leading the league in secondary assists (3.0) and assist-to-turnover ratio (4.55). Combined with his 17.6 points per game, Paul’s distributing has him tied with Anthony Davis for the NBA’s most offensive win shares (4.9).

    6) When it comes to third-quarter scoring, only James Harden (7.8) has been better than Bryant and Griffin, who both average 7.5 points. Griffin had the hot hand last time the two teams met up, pouring in 13 third-quarter points, while Bryant tallied just three.

    7) DeAndre Jordan has been a catalyst for the Clippers’ success on both ends of the floor. The Texas A&M product ranks fourth in the league in offensive rating (129.4) and 10th in defensive rating (99.1), making him the only player in the top 10 for both. The Clippers also score 15.4 more points per 100 possessions with Jordan on the floor, while holding the opponent to 1.9 fewer.

    8) No player gets hotter faster than J.J. Redick, whose league-leading 2.9 scoring average in the game’s first three minutes ranks just ahead of Kevin Durant (2.7). Redick has gone off for 10 first-quarter points 10 times, which has resulted in eight victories for the Clippers.

    9) The Clippers have found offensive success away from the basket this season, as they rank second-to-last in drives to the hoop (16.9) and close touches (14.5), while scoring the third-fewest points in the paint (35.2). However, the Clippers have been deadly from long distance, where they are making the second-most 3-pointers (10.2) on the second-best 3-point percentage (38.5). However, the Clippers have been solid from wherever the choose to shoot, as they place at or above league-average in just about every area of the court (see below).

    http://i.cdn.turner.com/drp/nba/lakers/sites/default/files/shotchart_1420671115682.png

    10) On the flip side, the Clippers are one of the league’s best teams at locking down the paint. With the 6-foot-11 Jordan — who is second in blocks per game (2.3) — serving as a deterrent, opponents have averaged the fewest shots (19.2) and second-fewest baskets (10.3) at the rim. Meanwhile, the Clippers are also holding their foes to the NBA’s third-fewest points in the paint (39.0).

    OK, how do you donate to jlinfoundation, where do you click on the site?

  • Brent Yen

    PB does not close games anymore? LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Have you check the donation thread?

  • MoominFloren

    Why need him once Lin is gone?
    Listen Price, you’re the next.

  • Rookie75094

    I have never rooted so are for Jr smith in my life until tonight…. but to no avail…. oh well back to hating all of the rockets and Jr smith as well… win wîn for me… lol

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! They like Terry more now.

  • JC

    The post for donation from the pregame tread should be brought here

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • HY C

    Recently some sports writer had an article about “how curry and klay become the best backcourt in the league” (don’t remember who the writer is)…

    This got me thinking that, when the beard just joined ROX, ROX tried to promote Lin and him to be the most dynamic backcourt duo. Then the beard’s jealousy kicked in, and everything went south.

    Now Lin is supposed to be able to help create another legend for Kobe (like Spurs Robinson passing the torch to Timmy), unfortunately, Kobe is so short-sighted, he would rather see the team lose than allow Lin to outshine him.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • joyce ward

    @psalm234:disqus I just donated $100.00

  • 1mtoldman

    after giving up 30 to irving half way thru the thrid i guess even mr elite d. can hav an off nite. yeah not tonite. in fact it was only when p bev was out that the rockets cleared the game.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The things he said about JLin….jealousy in locker room stuff…poor fellow, never appreciate how JLin got the Knicks getting to the playoff.

  • joyce ward

    I get nervous when Lin starts with Kobe. Hope he plays well and show no fear playing with Kobe

  • John Lee

    And he thinks he’s better than Jeremy…SMH. It’s ridiculous that he’s in the NBA.

  • Briiick

    Next time, make sure there is not a SG with a larger contract. Spurs’ model is the standard today with a star PG instead of SG in starters.

  • Jeremiah

    He did have 10 SUs though. (Shoelaces untied)

  • Brent Yen

    Most likely he will go all defensive mode…

  • Rick Johnson

    Hope he doesn’t just dribble up and pass to Kobe. Or they don’t do that Kobe as PG garbage.

  • Jeremiah

    Hope he goes totally LINSANE!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Linsanity!!!

  • Maknusia

    I think he will take a different approach…lets see

  • Thank you, Joyce!

    Let me update it in a new post here so others have quick links

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ok, you’re nervous. Hope not so for Lin. GoLin!

  • Frank

    not gonna happen kobe is gonna take over as usual
    Lin on this team is better off the bench believe it or not

  • joyce ward

    Thanks:)

  • Frank

    Lin closed a lot of games last year cuz he was real good

  • joyce ward

    Yeah,probably will go defensive mode., I just hope he gets in double figures tonight.

  • joyce ward

    Ok, I was trying to send it through Jlinpotal but couldn’t figure it out.LOL

  • Brent Yen

    @psalm234:disqus might need to enlist @awarde:disqus’s nieces….I heard they have a plan to corner Lin….somewhere

  • LOL

  • Frank

    a date i shall never forget
    the day I decided id devote my whole life to destroying everything byron scott loves as he did mine

  • np :]

  • joyce ward

  • HY C

    Q&A for Lin and fans only?

  • sure. come fly to Phx on 1/19?
    dinner is my treat LOL

  • Brent Yen

    The prophet can predict the menu I assume…

  • yup =)

  • yes, jlinportal@gmail.com. Thanks :>

  • joyce ward

    email address to send copy of receipt please..Thanks

  • HY C

    wow, you are so lucky

  • Frank

    Honestly I don’t feel Lin is showing much appreciation/love towards his fans
    just saying
    he doesnt do much
    not much social media stuff to get ppl involved

  • Jeremiah

    You mean it?

  • Brent Yen

    What?! I think he did more than most of other players

  • joyce ward

    Just sent it. Thanks:)

  • grover chang

    Are you trolling?

  • ok, the response has been overwhelmingly … too positive.
    I promise I’ll send emails on choosing the name on the card tomorrow, people LOL or you can send to jlinportal@gmail.com

    I can’t keep up with it. I’ll watch the game first tonight haha…

  • Frank

    really?
    Im not on fb but i dont see much interaction on twitter

  • Maknusia

    What do you mean?

  • Frank

    nope
    dont see him much on twitter

  • joyce ward

    Don’t laugh, they are serious and very cunning. LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Oh…you mean twitter….at least he has an account…..I would love to see McHale or Scott to have one

  • Frank

    dont see him get invloved with fans much

  • joyce ward

    Thanks for doing this. I am sure Lin will appreciate it.

  • Maknusia

    that would definitely go nasty! lol

  • Brent Yen

    exactly what @psalm234:disqus needs!

  • Frank

    me too
    would be sending them death threats insults family insults every day

  • Maknusia

    He had couple of Q&A with fans…remember

  • Frank

    on twitter?

  • Brent Yen

    That is ridiculous and bad…

  • Frank

    just like how they treated lin lol

  • Brent Yen

    Not really…

  • Maknusia

    an eye for an eye, would never get us anywhere

  • Frank

    bad and ridicoulous?

  • 1mtoldman

    speaking of point guards….wow utah blowing out chicago in chicago. d rose continues his sketchy play (3 for 15 for 7 points 2nite and the worst 3 pt shooting % in the league for the season for any volume 3 shooter and 30% from the field overall for the month of jan–4 games including 2nite)–actually brooks off the bench has been outplaying him at least half the time.

    even tho they’ve won 9 out of 10 before this one their point dif. is the worst of any team with a 70% winning %.

  • Maknusia

    i dont think it was twitter…we had the whole QnA posted here some time back.

  • Maknusia

    It was not their shooting nite (33%)

  • Brent Yen
  • Jeremiah

    Captain Kirk’s voice: Damn it! I’m a prophet not a psychic!

  • no, it was FB Q&A
    Then there was Google HangOut for some fans
    Then JLin week of fan interaction through quizzes/prizes
    Then he sponsored the FootLocker fan meet by buying preseason tickets from his own pocket, etc.
    He did a LOT for his fans

    Where have you been, @Frank 😀

    If you follow on Twitter or check the latest news here or jl dot net, you won’t miss it next time

  • yw =)

  • 1mtoldman

    for the year of the teams currently in line for a playoff spot only houston shoots worse.

  • wow.. you serious? we can talk haha..

  • I’ll do my best

  • if he can, drinks are free too :]

  • Maknusia

    good memory…thx…

  • Jeremiah

    It’s Lin’s mistreatment by the Rox and now Lakers that keeps him from doing more of what you’re referring to.

  • joyce ward

    Wow it will be interesting to see who is left standing for the NBA championship.

  • Brent Yen

    Hard not to bet on Spurs…

  • Maknusia

    its still early into the season…they ranked 10th now

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, but everybody is old and injured. Tony Parker just came back. so we will see. BTW did you find it odd that Lin/Young were featured last night in the Laker Access event. No Davis, No Hill. and we all know Kobe doesn’t go those events anymore. I thought for sure they would have Randle(although he is injured)the face of the franchise.

  • Mike Trudell is good to show Lin’s defense against CP3

    https://twitter.com/LakersReporter/status/553032270701793280

  • Brent Yen

    I assume this is decided months ago? I think they are well aware each one’s popularity

  • MoominFloren

    Go Jeremy Go !!!

  • Bearness

    Is Lin starting??

  • Jeremiah

    My gf will think I’m crazy and there’s a lot of tickets to book on short notice but I’m due for a vacation. 🙂

  • Mike Trudell just reiterated that JLin held CP3 to 2/9 shooting although double-digit assists in Oct

  • Bearness

    What the heck?

  • yes

  • Bearness

    Why? I mean that’s great, but why? Because Price broke his nose?

  • joyce ward

    Did you see my twitter post today? I am sure it was not popular. I just think that lin needs to stay and keep his head down, because Scott’s longevity on this team is only tied to Kobe. When the Lakers get in rebuild mold they will get a better coach that can do that

  • yes, plus flu

  • blubell
  • Bearness

    Nice… I mean too bad for Price, but nice…

  • Arsenium12 .
  • joyce ward

    Lin playing PG

  • Maknusia

    hsss…TO…stay aggressive Jeremy…Go Lin

  • CP3 scored on Kobe’s no-D

  • blubell
  • Why did Lin stop guarding CP3?
    Kobe can’t handle CP3’s speed

  • Bearness

    Wow Pistons won 7 straight since Josh Smith trade. LOL

  • so Kobe asked Lin to guard Barnes but he can’t guard CP3 either
    *Sigh* gonna be a long night

  • Lam

    Smithsanity!!

  • Pete Roces

    every team sets screen for their PG except LA, BS brain dead or what?

  • Lakers D looked thoroughly overwhelmed

  • Alaingrvis

    this unit has zero chemistry

  • LW

    a blowout in the making.

  • sws94

    Unfortunately, Lin isn’t looking great with this unit, and hasn’t really gotten to do the PnR with Davis yet. On defense, the Clippers O is light years ahead of the Lakers.

  • joyce ward

    What is lin doing?

  • CJSHYY

    Guarding SF not CP3.

  • joyce ward

    That is because kobe doesn’t come to practice.

  • Alaingrvis

    this game will be hard. a new unit thrown together it will be a grind

  • blubell

    finally!

  • Good pass by Kobe to find an open Lin under the basket

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Looks like Kobe is PG

  • Alaingrvis

    picking up speed

  • Great D by Lin to jump and challenging CP3 for the miss

  • sport

    JLin only gets to start cause scrub the Price still can’t play?

  • Brent Yen

    Attack the close out, good thing happens… Try to beat a wall….usually a TOV follows

  • Bearness

    Lin was struggling a bit but I like that he is just keep attacking.

  • Jerome

    Kobe is so jealous of Lins popularity

  • 2 times Lin moved w/o the ball and Kobe finding him for the score
    It’s a good sign

  • Pete Roces

    Kobe back to PG role, Jeremy has to be agressive and not just standng at the corner.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin look uncomfortable with this group byt he is finding his way

  • sport

    That’s why Lin can’t play PG.

  • Jerome

    easier said than done

  • CJSHYY

    Why you so said? Kobe is very popular in home game.

  • Alaingrvis

    very.. he has improved with out the ball

  • Promo Sports World

    Point forward 24

  • sport

    JLin’s moving but Kobe isn’t passing to him, Lin’s lucky to get 4 points!

  • Brin

    Keep working on moving without the ball, find your spots and look for space. I really like how he hid out under the basket. Kobe had no choice to give him the ball.

  • Alaingrvis

    expected

  • CJSHYY

    Agree.

  • Brent Yen

    Agree..

  • sws94

    Good drive. Wanna see Lin get the ball and go. Also, move off ball more. His outside shot doesn’t seem great today so he needs to penetrate.

  • Briiick

    Lin is doing very well, used his attractiveness to pull defenders away creating opportunities.

  • Promo Sports World

    16 points goal today make it 4 straight good games….problem is he will get no time in the 2nd quarter

  • Pete Roces

    Kobe is passing to him, Lin just scores 4 pts off Kobe’s pass.

  • Brent Yen

    Wtf was that?

  • blubell

    Come on, Sacre…

  • Jerome

    awful pass

  • sws94

    MIscommunication there.

  • Jerome

    calm down lin that pass was god awful

  • Bearness

    Wow, he was totally not paying attention….

  • sport

    Not as much though.

  • Sacre turned Lin’s assist to TO .. *sigh*

  • sport

    It was awful ><"

  • Promo Sports World

    Never seen fans or posters get so caught up on bad plays….its basketball

  • Bearness

    Wasn’t bad. Just looked bad because Sacre wasn’t ready.

  • he thought Sacre was Davis

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This Lakers team looks like they were 5 random guys pulled from the stands and thrown in to play basketball..

  • Alaingrvis

    they basically are today

  • JC

    Is Lin playing pg or Kobe

  • sport

    Lin needs to wake up and be aggressive!

  • Promo Sports World

    Too many minutes given man worried that he won’t see the court till the 3rd

  • blubell

    Nice pass!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Finally someone with good chemistry with J….

  • Promo Sports World

    5 shot attempts in the first quarter is being aggressive

  • sport

    Kobe as PG for first unit. Lin PG for 2nd unit.

  • Pete Roces

    See how Clippers big jumps out of pick to harass Jeremy, LA’s big must do it to disrupt CP’s rhythm, unfortunately, Hill and Booz are not Griffin and Jordan

  • sws94

    That’s what LIn needs to do. Nice assist.

  • Promo Sports World

    Slow bigs

  • sport

    Of course, Jordan is a 3 point machine and Griffin is close to MVP status.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    WOOHOO.. LONG 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blubell

    Sweet clutch 3!!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Sweet good 1st quarter jlin

  • Briiick

    Linsanity!!!

  • sport

    WOw… Lin from DownTOwn! literally LOL great!

  • Lin’s 333333333 from WAYYYYYY Downtown!

  • BobbyH

    At least he smiled after shooting the 3s.

  • Bearness

    Yeahhhhhhhhhh!!!!

  • sport

    If BS sticks to this rotation and not play Price anymore they are golden even if Kobe is PG for starters! Lin gets to play PG while Kobe is out, everyone is happy! So…why hasn’t BS done this all season? Oh right cause he’s in love with his god son Price! SMH!

  • Brent Yen

    Nice 1q

  • Jerome

    This is why Lin needs to start

  • blubell

    Not a game winner but its still a winner 🙂

  • Briiick

    Lin, the clutch !

  • Alaingrvis

    lin will play a lot today it seems

  • orLinaryjoe

    Nice 3!

  • Bearness

    I’m pretty sure this is first time he played entire Q1 this season (normally reserved for Kobe).

  • Brent Yen

    If not a blow out

  • Jerome

    but yah if kobes gonna play PG Lin actually better off coming off the bench
    they dont mesh well

  • blubell

    Jeremy is not afraid to take the big shots.

  • Promo Sports World

    Folks on her saying lin not playing aggressive come on folks jeremy has been playing this tempo for the last 4 games and starting tonight might be the cherry on top….enjoy it

  • Alaingrvis

    they are fighting don’t think it will be a blow out

  • Brent Yen

    I really hope scare had caught that pass..was a nice pass..

  • Briiick

    I have a feeling that Lin could win this game !

  • blubell
  • Jeremiah

    If Lin gets >35 min he should be able to settle down and have a great game.

  • JC

    When gets close to 20pts, kobe will bench him for the rest of the game

  • orLinaryjoe

    Not Davis. Sacre: What, someone passed me the ball?

  • blubell
  • sport

    Ok Lin wasn’ aggressive enough until he made that 3 from downtown after end of quarter. Now he has 7 pts and I’m happy, dude gotta keep shooting!!

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy for the last 4 games has been playing very smart … Crossing my fingers for 30 mins tonight

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    Sport im telling you that last round of criticism before the new year from bs triggered something…not Linsanity but jeremy Lin NBA of pride

  • Brent Yen

    Clipper has no respect for scare at all

  • Promo Sports World

    He might be the big Charmin

  • JC

    That’s the furthest 3 he made

  • blubell

    Do you, Brent? lol

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    That should count as 5 points lol

  • Promo Sports World

    Quietly Nick young has been really inconsistent and not a whisper

  • Brent Yen

    He do not catch that lin pass, so…NO

  • Brin

    I like how your wrote scare for sacre since he looked scared to catch it. It wasn’t a bad pass you just have to be ready and put your arms up.

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson with a vet play there nice rook

  • Brent Yen

    Kind of risky…..

  • Promo Sports World

    Reminds me of less polished shump

  • Alaingrvis

    he has a pretty good dribble have seen lin do that play

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy back in between 5-3 min mark

  • Brin

    The last second shot by Lin was sweet because you could tell he had no intention of driving even though he had plenty of time to get to the hoop. He wanted to chuck that long range three. That shot I give a little credit to Swaggy rubbing off on him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    4 pts

  • Promo Sports World

    Swaggy trade bait I feel

  • Bearness

    I think he has been inconsistent all his career so maybe it’s not news. LOL

  • sport

    Anyone glad Price is out with that nose injury? This should’ve been the lineup this season with Ellington and Lin as starters!

  • Promo Sports World

    Co-sign

  • Lin should do more Comedy Gold session with Swaggy like last night!

  • probably when CP3 is back

  • sport

    Oh and Clarkson as bench PG after Lin leads 2nd unit a bit before resting! Best substitution of the season my god!

  • Brent Yen

    Boozer does not rotate..

  • Bearness

    Too bad for Price, but I was pleasantly surprised.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Boozer so great on D

  • Brent Yen

    Boozer only push

  • Promo Sports World

    So true his overvalue is insane

  • Bearness

    His signature move…

  • Promo Sports World

    Makes bball sense

  • Promo Sports World

    His feet hurt….I remember he said that in Chicago once

  • orLinaryjoe

    Boozer find his game after not having to play with u know who.

  • blubell

    Good to see bench doing well.

  • kauaiblue

    Sheyt… clarkson is the new beverly/price

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson doing a few lin moves

  • Promo Sports World

    Davis needs to find his groove

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So-called AmBoy (American Boy in my country slang) Jordan Clarkson copying Jeremy in every way…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Mr Bryant, can you please stay guard your man M Barnes?

  • Lin has mentored him well then

  • Alaingrvis

    clipper play zero defense

  • Brent Yen

    I think u r asking too much

  • sport

    Can Price just rest for the entire season! And can Scott stop with his pedophile obsession with Price!

  • I just reailzed Clippers starters are playing with Lakers bench now

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Maybe I do.

  • Brent Yen

    This is what made clipper better than before..griffin’s speed

  • Joe what do you know

    Wow. Reddick the flop God. Ellington didn’t even touch him…

  • MoominFloren

    why not? hehe

  • orLinaryjoe

    Bench is stronger anyways. Except w/o Lin today.

  • blubell

    No PG on the floor.

  • JJ Hui

    Urgh! Fake Hero came in and why not Lin?

  • Promo Sports World

    Looks like a triple double possibly

  • kauaiblue

    No jeremy?

  • yeah, his speed is scary

  • blubell

    BS

  • Bearness

    ????? I don’t know what you mean. I see Kobe is playing.

  • Promo Sports World

    Like I said 5-3 min mark

  • Pete Roces

    After Scoring 7 pts, Lin is being benched by BS, great coaching and tanker.

  • blubell

    Darn BS.

  • MoominFloren

    Bench after that long 3???

  • Alaingrvis

    he played the whole 1st so i expect he will rest a little longer

  • Brent Yen

    Who was that guy rotate to cp3 and leave reddick alone?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Last out, last in.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He played 12 straight mins.

  • kauaiblue

    Byron mchale

  • Promo Sports World

    Get Nick empty stat young out

  • Alaingrvis

    he played the whole 1st so he will rest a little longer

  • Brent Yen

    Nick young looks like a YMCA player right now

  • Promo Sports World

    Trade bait

  • blubell

    BScott’s minute management sucks.

  • Brent Yen

    Doc exploited it so successfully

  • Alaingrvis

    lets keep prospective lin played 12 straight minutes on a good day off the bench he will be lucky to get 12 the whole first half

  • blubell
  • he might’ve used up his swag last night
    no comedy show for him before game!

  • sport

    It’s really great this game, Lin getting minutes as starter and with 2nd unit!

  • Promo Sports World

    As soon as I saw 10+ I knew 2nd quarter mins would be am issue

  • Maknusia

    so far his minutes are ok

  • Maknusia

    he has the second highest minutes among starters

  • IsabeliJane*17

    CP3 lucky he has good bigs around him

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe being a poor passér

  • Bearness

    LA “bigs” have no chance of stopping them.

  • blubell

    Sweeet 3!!

  • Promo Sports World

    15 points
    Jeremy

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Another 3 for ILY..

  • CP3 just stared at the 5ft space Kobe gave him and drained the 3

  • Brent Yen

    The defense Is so bad. Only lin was trying

  • Promo Sports World

    Hill And Kobe horrible defenders

  • IsabeliJane*17

    LOL who made Blake waltz on that dunk?!?!?!

  • I’m glad Lin didn’t try to challenge Griffin’s dunk

  • LAJane

    LOL!

  • Bearness

    He had time to windmill and it wasn’t even a fast break.

  • JJ Hui

    This is the same pattern Like the begining of the season, KB bricking too much and cannot run,

  • sport

    OMG 22 point lead by Clippers, where the ….is the defense!!!

  • Brent Yen

    If anyone saying this is lost because of lin, that guy has to be executed..

  • Clippers looked like they had no resistance in playing Slam-Dunk City

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The way I see it, this Clippers team still wouldn’t get out of playoffs round 1…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe is the worst defender. He can’t guard anyone.

  • Jerome

    May I?

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy needs to get his points quick in the 3rd because big garbage time

  • JC

    Lol got to love how the lakers big AND kobe just standing still right under the basket while the clippers big just flying all around and dunking

  • blubell

    Ready the guillotine!!!

  • Briiick

    Kobe sucked !

  • Lakers only hope is Clippers got bored in 2nd half and started missing plus playing no D

  • nodomo

    Why don’t anyone in the media point out the obvious, Kobe doesn’t play defense. He doens’t even put a hand up or show some kind of effort to defend when a shot goes up…

  • sport

    Ok, this game is lost if Kobe continues to be PG for 2nd half, too slow. Lin just gotta keep shooting!

  • BobbyH

    You read my mind. I think Lin saved some energy on D. I personally like it.

  • MoominFloren

    Can someone make a Kobe no defense video?

  • Brent Yen

    Everyone except lin Ellington and Kobe……seems already giving up the game…

  • Promo Sports World

    They will look at cp3 stats and say he killed lin and price would have done the job lol

    Mind u we know who was guarding cp3

  • Jerome

    Lin isnt gonna stop CP3
    then again who does?
    ppl are crazy if they call out Lin’s D cuz aint nobody cant guard CP3 when hes shots are fullinh and griifin dandre setting up haaard screens for him
    its impossible

  • blubell
  • Brin

    The Clippers bigs just dominated this half. Barnes is on fire from three. Is it me or does Kobe’s assists even look selfish? CP is playing well, but something about Lin guarding him that bothers him. He has the length and speed to just stay with him and can stay with his lateral movements.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JLin wasted his time with the “starters” esp. with Kobe trying to impress…:(

  • blubell
  • BobbyH

    I am good with Lin 10 points. Win or loss, why care, as if FO/BS do.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What the heck is he keep staying in the paint? He crowded Laker’s bigs.

  • Promo Sports World

    Bigs and kobe can’t play D

  • sport

    Lin contested that missed 3 yet all his teams were just standing around the rim like statues!! SMH

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    KB is just too slow and can’t compete in NBA games. Should retire for good!

  • Alaingrvis

    well the starter have zero chemistry but also clippers are fast and athletic. its lakers old slow offense cant keep up. its a tough spot to put these players in new units like that. still this loss was expected. kobe is off. young is off. both with zero points

  • Maknusia

    wish he had made that 3!

  • JC

    I could defend better than that…by just raising my arms

  • orLinaryjoe

    Someone give the PG a walking stick!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s slower than Boozer.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Clippers is exciting to watch………against teams with no defending bigs

    Jeremy only 1 defending…

  • Bearness

    Ouch, that’s harsh, but true.

  • Maknusia

    why…to slow him further? jk…roller blade would be a better choice

  • blubell
  • Bearness

    They’re having dunk practice.

  • Promo Sports World

    Randle could have helped with speed to recover on the screens….Davis a banger can’t help on the perimeter….lakers are a sad roster when it comes
    To the bigs being versatile…I mean sacre gets minutes

  • blubell
  • JC

    Worst thing is they didn’t even try

  • to help play Defensive Tackle (DT) :]

  • Maknusia

    surprisingly, Kobe had not been taking shots

  • Briiick

    kobe exposed. Don’t be humiliated again and again, it’s time to retire!

  • Brent Yen

    He gave lin a TOV!!!!!!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    0-4 something is off with him seem very tired out there

  • MoominFloren

    wakakaka

  • orLinaryjoe

    Don’t worry. Saving for 4th quarter Kobe festival, LOL.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy’s trade value is going up each game for a contending team

  • so true.. Kobe tried his ‘5-foot Death Stare” at CP3 but it didn’t work at all!

  • Promo Sports World

    Amazingly bad

  • Brent Yen

    Why?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Without practicing, BS expects everyone should know what Kobe would do with the ball as pg. SMH

  • sport

    They got to play with Lin for half of the time they were on court cause Lin has to rest after play entire 1st quarter.

  • MoominFloren

    Trying hard to get a rebound….and triple double

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They were blocked or stripped on his way to the basket.

  • Maknusia

    you know, that you are going against the forum rules here, with Kobe’s name….lets keep decorum

  • it’s supposedly makes shooters tired for shooting too much .. according to PPierce on Kobe.
    Or is it the other way around? :]

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Doc River schooling BS’s stupid comment about rivalry.

  • Alaingrvis

    it would be ridiculous to believe ronnie price could stop this. but i bet some will try. like the peeve stopping westbrooke stuff.if lakers want to stop this they badly need a rim protecter.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I can run faster than him if my old age if I give it try:-)

  • Brent Yen

    Lin already got 10p…he can rest now

  • Promo Sports World

    Good question: lots of playoff teams need pg help:
    Heat, Blazers, Chicago to name a few. I could see jeremy leaving to help a playoff team I really do

  • Brent Yen

    Still not exactly a rivary, this is a beat down right now

  • Promo Sports World

    Or a mobile big man to defend pnr

  • Chipdip

    Lakers so ugly….

  • Jeremiah

    Walker

  • Maknusia

    so thats the mark?

  • Alaingrvis

    just someone who scare people. i badly miss dwight.

  • Brent Yen

    U just raised my hope…..good promo!

  • sport

    No d what so ever besides Lin ><" Everyone standing around even after Lin contested shots.

  • blubell

    Haha. I like your trash talk.

  • Alaingrvis

    expected new unit and all

  • Brent Yen

    I believe that is the mark where Scott start to get nervous..

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ronnie with shoe D. What would Kobe do with stick?

  • Maknusia

    D got worse on Q2

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    There’s no rivalry between the Lakers and the Clippers…. and there’s no comparison between Doc River and B Scott.

  • Maknusia

    not even close…sigh!

  • Alaingrvis

    hate this off the ball lin price will be back soon so he can do it

  • orLinaryjoe

    Fixed. Better? LOL.

  • blubell

    Hope Jeremy can make Scott a nervous wreck.

  • Maknusia

    upvote

  • Brin

    Watching Steve Ballmer dance crazy like he is leading a Microsoft
    conference puts into perspective the opposite directions of these
    franchises who share a building. Hard to believe considering the storied history of the Lakers and how much of joke the Clippers had been for years.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL So annoying to watch KB, Hill, Davis in the last 2-3 min in 2nd qtr.

  • joyce ward

    good lin can go back to the 2nd unit and win the games,

  • Chipdip

    Yes, true. Jeremy moved with the starters and the starters score so many points than the bench now. Sickening.

  • Rookie75094

    2 obvious fouls on Jlin in the 1st half by the clips but the racist refs ignored them

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly

  • sport

    Yes especially the offensive foul where he was pushed and fell down!

  • Maknusia

    Thats what I wanna see

  • Chipdip

    They stand around both in offence and defence. The Clippers ran plays… the Lakers? OMG…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    KB and Hill are really bad news for Lakers.

  • Jeremiah

    The Force is just not with Kobe anymore. Not even the dark side.

  • JJ Hui

    Exactly! It is so annoying to see him so slow and not retiring and hogging and wanted to do everything including PG!

  • sport

    Just be glad Lin’s scoring even as “SG” with starters.

  • JC

    As the commentator said:”the clippers D is bad, the lakers D is astrocious!!”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Oh no Kobe now tries to stop a crime

  • Alaingrvis

    hill being out hustled

  • orLinaryjoe

    Not really trying. Ug

  • Brin

    Lin just guarded everyone on that possession

  • Jerome

    bad pass Lin stop doing that please!

  • blubell

    Not the first time. He did it in Houston and doing it again in LA.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No one does

  • Chipdip

    Lin guarded Paul way out, Paul passed the ball.. Lin the first one back to defend that guy… Gee… where are the other Lakers?

  • Maknusia

    Thanks mate…you are a great fan of Lin! 🙂

  • orLinaryjoe

    0 for 5! Ug Kobe

  • sport

    Lin stop fouling! 3 fouls already! Forget about defense!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sit Kobe please.

  • Jerome

    stop fouling play for urself

  • Chipdip

    Yes!!!!!!!!

  • sport

    Please bench Kobe he’s horrible!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Pig will fly first:-)

  • sport

    >< Lin with 4 fouls…. what are you doing?!

  • Jerome

    Lin so dumb

  • blubell

    ouch

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe looks very rusty

  • Maknusia

    yeah, he just need to be extra careful now

  • occupatio

    lin picking up too many fouls

  • Alaingrvis

    lin 4 fouls

  • sport

    ><" Contesting shots at the rim that are obvious fouls….Uh!!

  • Lin has 4 PFs now.
    He needs to stop fouling before offense exploits him

  • Chipdip

    He tried his best but his teammates are not… he might as well sit

  • Jerome

    Lin just had to play himself out of the game he just had to on a night when he gets to play more mins
    he jusr has to play hims elf out of the game

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Game ovah since 2Q..

  • Chipdip

    … may be he is trying to foul himself out from this ugly game? …

  • JJ Hui

    KB handles the ball too much, that is where the problem comes!

  • sport

    Yes he just had do obvious fouls when his teammates aren’t playing any defense!

  • Maknusia

    NYoung is in

  • Briiick

    Lin better sits with Kobe sucked like this and kept dominating every offense.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is not rookie he has played a lot of game so one 30 plus minute game means nothing

  • Brent Yen

    I think this is different…….

  • Maknusia

    there is no point racking up PF when team D is not there

  • occupatio

    kobe is embarrassing

  • Alaingrvis

    is not a rookie

  • Chipdip

    Not gonna to complain again Lin not being the starter with the Lakers any more. Playing with KB is not good at all. Playing with the bench players is so much better.

  • Rookie75094

    Wow the last 2 Jlin fouls were caused by Kobe to and brick

  • sws94

    Not competitive now. Lin in foul trouble. I don’t know if Byron should wave the white flag or not. But it is getting close.

  • it’s too bad but Lin chose to play D when others are not willing to play hard

    When he’s back, he has to scale back his D

  • occupatio

    kobe playing PG isnt working

  • MoominFloren

    Not exactly. Kobe on court is the real problem

  • sport

    And Lin was actually on fire this game! ><"

  • Brin

    So Kobe running the point is good, why? If Lin had 6 turnovers and 4 in under 5 minutes in one quarter that is all we would be hearing about. Probably won’t hear a peep from Scott about turnovers today, but he went out of his way to talk about them last game. Can’t hurt Kobe’s feelings

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Playing with Kobe is like stone in his shoe.

  • Brent Yen

    I do not think Lin cares about the foul…he went all the way to foul….JJ

  • Jerome

    he wont come back 4th q is gonna be garbage time lin will sit

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Should try him at C

  • Jeremiah

    Is this what the end of Kobe looks like?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yeah, slows game down to a crawl.

  • occupatio

    he got frustrated i guess about the porous defense

  • Chipdip

    0 for 7 and 8 TO… The most important Lakers player? OMG…. get him out of there please

  • sport

    Lin’s been in the league for 5 years, not a rookie.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    He knows this is a lost cause so just wants some rest.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe where are you? M Barnes is shootin.

  • occupatio

    too bad this is live — i cant fast forward to when lin comes back

  • Alaingrvis

    typo

  • sport

    You mean if he comes back right? By the time he’s back Lakers would be down 50.

  • Chipdip

    I said long time before… Kobe will not be there by Feb… GOD is working on that plan…

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    I think it is something else. There is no one Scott went away from the thing that were working. He called Kobe’s number too much and Lin is frustrated I think..

  • Briiick

    Kobe may still hope to pad his stats against weak teams, but today against LAC he is completely exposed.

  • sport

    Not just Kobe but Price needs to go too!!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin not tht type of guy

  • Brent Yen

    If it goes to garbage time..he will sit…

  • Chipdip

    Yes, he now has the best +/- compare to his fellow starters by sitting down. Can’t imagine how frustrated it is to play with the starters

  • Brent Yen

    Yes !

  • MoominFloren

    No…. please let him stay…. I want to see 10 TOs from him

  • Alaingrvis

    games like today make kobe look real old.

  • Chipdip

    Now that would be his natural position to stay there to watch

  • Briiick

    His only hope tonight is to pad in the garbage time.

  • blubell
  • JJ Hui

    Yes, no doubt about it! I am getting sick to see him on court, i am not kidding!

  • sport

    And Kobe with only 2 pts, would’ve been nice if he had 0 pts.

  • Carol Tiu

    Don’t forget byron.

  • Promo Sports World

    Well that was a quick 3rd

  • Brent Yen

    Stat padding time

  • Promo Sports World

    Wanted 15

  • Briiick

    I felt the same. Lin couldn’t help his team with Kobe sucking like this and still demanding every ball.

  • orLinaryjoe

    brick kobe

  • occupatio

    lakers bigs getting eaten alive

  • sport

    CP3 just got his double double, Blake on his way to a triple double.

  • blubell

    Every game is stat padding time.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Do the world a favor Kobe, RETIRE.

  • Brent Yen

    Oh well

  • sport

    Cause he is old! 35 years old playing 35/40 minutes per game!

  • Maknusia

    i could go with that

  • blubell

    then spat out.

  • Briiick

    Kobe is going to repair his stats in the garbage time.

  • Promo Sports World

    Clips need a pg too….thinking of jeremy options if he can’t be a starter

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Yascar

    Scott have mercy on your superstar and sit him down.

  • Brent Yen

    This is a massacre now…I like it..

  • occupatio

    nick had open lane with that move but took jumper. so dumb

  • Promo Sports World

    Scott or Kobe has the goods on something

  • Maknusia

    like 20pts?!

  • Brent Yen

    And Jameson said he has hign IQ

  • Maknusia

    you have turned evil!

  • Brin

    This is ugly. Kobe can’t practice or play back to backs to rest so BS decides he needs to keep him in a blow out game down 33 points. Smart coaching.

  • blubell

    Massacre and execution… what is going on with you, Brent? lol.

  • JJ Hui

    Now KOBE, the team without you almost won the Portland T. B. The team with you behind Clippers 30 points now, still a hero?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Hate to be DB. Dead bananas for everyone. Well, maybe not Lin, LOL

  • occupatio

    lol

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    lol lakers shoot deep then clipper rebound fast break layup. bad shots a lot by kobe got lin those fouls

  • CP3 disliked Lin from the days of Linsanity so probably not a good idea

  • Brent Yen

    Really, I think CP3 respected him too..

  • Briiick

    If Scott doesn’t sit his boss now, he is not even able to pad his stats in the garbage time !

  • occupatio

    hill and boozer have no pride on defense.

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe Germany knee work collapsing

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The one that runs the offense never practice with the team. Is that how you prepare for battle BS?

  • Brent Yen

    At least Lin forced one TOV out of CP3

  • Keith

    Nah, CP3 is Lin hater. I remember he made fun of Lin in front of Melo at the bar. Someone filmed it . Should be on youtube.

  • something is wrong with KObe’s left eye.
    Looked half-asleep or something

  • Brin

    In a game where everyone says Kobe is distributing and getting assists he still shoots more than any other starter with the worst efficiency.

  • blubell

    So I guess Jeremy will end up with 20 minutes…

  • Brent Yen

    That explains his defense…

  • blubell

    Haha. So evil tonight. Growl…

  • thinking 8ft is 3ft? lol

  • occupatio

    getting blown out by lob city is the ugliest.

  • sport

    CP3 and Harden made fun of Melo about Lin being his PG.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clippers stop playig.

  • occupatio

    lets see who scott keeps in to pad their stats

  • Promo Sports World

    Lakers and Knicks are the nba big problem

  • sport

    Kobe for sure….

  • wow.. Boozer and Kobe have the same 8ft-defense on 3pt shooters

  • Promo Sports World

    What happened to Ryan Kelley he got 26 mins the other day….bs is lost

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clippers are using the Lakers for tomorrow practice.

  • Maknusia

    Boozer been learning well from Kobe, it seems

  • occupatio

    pure disgusting

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Also a disgrace.

  • occupatio

    sacre’s defensive stance is to not bend knees against CP3. lol

  • sport

    Cough Cough all starters with 3-4 fouls except who?

  • Jeremiah

    This is Kobe on 3 days rest. He can’t practice anymore, he can’t play anymore. I wonder what it will take for Kobe to face reality.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    lol.

  • occupatio

    this is where minutes management is a joke. no reason kobe should be in this game now

  • sport

    Until he breaks down with another injury and I’m serious about it!

  • Promo Sports World

    Make madsen the coach and bite the bullet and eat Kobe salary —– smart moves won’t happen

  • Frank

    lol im not on fb damn

  • Promo Sports World

    Magic rolling in his grave

  • blubell

    WTH… Jeremy only played 3 minutes in the 3Q… why feature him?
    https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/553057462324969472

  • Maknusia

    totally, BScott should have rested for the next Magic game

  • Promo Sports World

    The great vlade divac rolling in his grave

  • Alaingrvis

    foul trouble

  • Frank

    Come on man 10 more points in the 4th

  • Promo Sports World

    The great nick van exel rolling in his grave

  • JJ Hui

    Now i have to congratulate KB for his heroism to be a floor general and ball hogging for a big lost! LOL!

  • blubell

    I know… my question is why feature him?

  • Briiick

    Scapegoat.

  • sport

    Garbage time, will JLin get to play 4th quarter?

  • Frank

    why not play Lin jesus
    byron scott shall be beheaded

  • Jeremiah

    I think he’s done.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Wow Detroit just beat Spurs and Mavs on the road b2b after they got rid of J Smith.

  • Carol Tiu

    Oh, no. Kobe on the bench now. I wish he would play more on this game.

  • Brin

    Not sure if we should be impressed with the Clippers high flying offense and utter dominance by their bigs or baffled by how Byron is supposed to be the coach who preaches defense. The +/- numbers today are hilarious to see.

  • Brent Yen

    Of course not

  • occupatio

    reminds me that byron doesnt play kelly enough.

  • Brent Yen

    BTW…I liked how Lin played….He gets his pts under the “RADAR”

  • Keith

    I think he should get some rest since this is losing game.

  • occupatio

    so nick is a passer now in garbage time?

  • Brin

    Perfect example of addition by subtraction and how overrated and underrated players are in this league.

  • Promo Sports World

    Effort ain’t there trade the bigs and young get picks force Kobe to retire

  • JJ Hui

    I am imagining Lin LOL and Kobe Cry out loud! I am so happy now and i dont know why, I am laughing along with my grandma! OMG!

  • occupatio

    this pt spread must be some kind of record for lakers

  • John Lee

    J Smith perfect fit for Morey the “genius”.

  • blubell

    Yup. Clutch deep 3 to go with double digit score on 50% shooting.

  • sport

    Did Boozer say something next to Kobe without looking at him?

  • Alaingrvis

    2-9 young 2-12 kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    why

  • Brent Yen

    Really? I thought GSW game was worse

  • Frank

    hes good at that

  • Brent Yen

    Shooter’s mentality.

  • I think Lin read Brent’s Adjusted Plus Minus earlier and decided to foul a lot to get -26 (highest on starter) rather than -34 like Kobe or -41 like Ellington 😀

  • occupatio

    its not over yet

  • Frank

    Lin shouldve known better
    smh

  • Keith

    Young is catching up

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Harvard alumni boss is smarter….he should get another alumni in his team..

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe looked bad today. very slow and old. idk what scott says now

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    WTH? Ellington already played 36 min? You’re beyond dumb. BS.

  • Brent Yen

    on what?

  • blubell
  • sport

    Kobe won’t admit he’s done.

  • occupatio

    whats annoying about when lin tries to foul is he doesnt foul hard enough. its like hes trying to get awy with fouling. if youre going to do it, make sure the shot doesnt get off

  • JC

    The only thing Hill does is taking mid range jump shot…yet he is listed as a center

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Carol Tiu

    He’s an economics major after all.

  • Briiick

    You suck old man !

  • Yascar

    About what?

  • Alaingrvis

    maybe kobe should not play athletic fast teams

  • Brent Yen

    He should not play starters..

  • that means he tried to get away with steal or slap the ball

  • JC

    “I love how he gave everything he got out there!”?

  • blubell

    He should not play. period.

  • John Lee

    He should not play, period.

  • Brent Yen

    I do not think he tried to foul…

  • Brent Yen

    I stand corrected.

  • Briiick

    He should only pad in garbage time.

  • blubell

    repeat after me. lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea i saw that

  • Guest

    Just curious, are you an attention seeker or a diva?

  • occupatio

    on houston, lin was deemed not good enough to start or get enough minutes, but not bad enough to play garbage time. same here. its the worst.

  • Frank

    this was gonna be a blow out hes not gnna play in the 4th shouldnt have fouled

  • golfhacker

    Defense is so bad, even Price is -8 and Johnson -5.

  • Carol Tiu

    Now why doesn’t BS think of that.

  • Brent Yen

    huh? Price?

  • JC

    He should coach…

  • occupatio

    however, lin plays like a dork in garbage time. doesnt even try to stat pad

  • John Lee

    Beat you by what must’ve been microseconds… LOL

  • Brent Yen

    AAU…I know, I know

  • blubell

    He gets away with that ever single game.

  • yes, not intentionally foul to stop the play.
    Just aggressive D turned to fouls

  • Maknusia

    new record…maybe

  • occupatio

    ok. turn tv off or not?

  • blubell

    Smash TV

  • Alaingrvis

    lin in

  • occupatio

    wow nice dunk black

  • blubell

    stat pad!

  • Alaingrvis

    yes

  • Brent Yen

    This is a surprise…I guess Scott think Lin is a garbage time player. But I will take it

  • LOL.. what did Lin do on the bench to get back in the game?

  • Frank

    finally Lin pad stats plzz why cant u play for urself a bit?

  • Alaingrvis

    just 2 points lin all i need

  • nodomo

    Lin is in becuase Ellington has 40 minutes in this game. Horrible game/minute management by Scott.

  • Frank

    giving kobe a nice foot massage

  • Briiick

    Lin is a winner, he looks down to stat padding.

  • occupatio

    ok. tv still on.

  • sws94

    Ellington has played 40 minutes!

  • blubell

    Like I said earlier. Scott’s minute management sucks.

  • Maknusia

    lol…you sure watching today’s game or some replays?

  • Brent Yen

    LOL your finger was on the button already?

  • JC

    I turned it off at half time

  • Lin probably talked a lot of how to coach in garbage time that Byron got tired of hearing it :]

  • Alaingrvis

    idk lol idc just stat pad

  • Maknusia

    his time keeper was asleep

  • or giving Byron an earful of Harvard coaching :]

  • occupatio

    got saved in the last minute

  • Hans

    The situation is so bad here that we can’t even expect a breakout game when Jeremy gets his occasional starts. Remember the 38 pt game vs. spurs or 30+ games vs. 76ers when he was with the ROX? Man, what has he done to deserve mistreatments like this? May God bring him strength and perseverance, and have mercy PLEASE!

  • Frank

    man byron sucks thats all lol

  • LOL.. you’re about to shut it off

  • ok, Lin… 15pts pleaseee

  • blubell

    Good thing you didn’t take my advice to smash tv.

  • Frank

    I hate CP3
    used to like him but hes not the same player anymore

  • occupatio

    where does TCW find these clowns to comment on the game?

  • Brin

    Never really see Lin stat pad so would be nice if he at least tries to get some rhythm with Tarik Black. but rather he just shoots like crazy

  • golfhacker

    I’m being sarcastic!!!

  • Brent Yen

    why

  • occupatio

    hes stupid about his career sometimes

  • Maknusia

    was that your prediction number?

  • Frank

    he humiliates Lin every time

  • sport

    Oh Lin’s back in?!

  • Maknusia

    then it should have been -80 and -50

  • occupatio

    at his worst in garbage time, he doesnt do anything. i think there is a responsibility to fans to at least try.

  • KHuang

    NO HE DOESN’T.

    Not this game either.

  • Brent Yen

    Black has a good demeanor I feel

  • Frank

    MAN LIN SHOOT!

  • sws94

    Lin doesn’t look like he’s looking to pad his stats.

  • sport

    Lin shoot, pad stats!!

  • occupatio

    kelly is an asset. lakers would be dumb to let him rot on the bench.

  • blubell

    It seems he’s mentoring the rookies out there.

  • JC

    It’s not fair competition

  • Brent Yen

    How did Black spined that deep? LOL

  • KHuang

    Lin, DON’T SHOOT!

    Just keep the shooting stats high and don’t press yourself.

    Get the ball to these teammates and keep playing good team basketball.

  • Maknusia

    lol, everyone is shooting except Lin

  • occupatio

    clarkson got some leap

  • KHuang

    Good.

    Let Lin protect his shooting percentages.

  • Frank

    Lin should wudnt shoot thats so dumb

  • KHuang

    Yup, but he’s got TUNNEL VISION.

  • Maknusia

    Lin is not a good shooter?

  • nope .. he’s coaching on the floor

  • KHuang

    NO.

    It’s dumb to shoot when one’s trying to protect his percentages!!!

    You are not smarter than Lin. KNOW YOUR PLACE.

  • Brent Yen

    I agree

  • occupatio

    lin is boring his fans and blowing his stats in garbage time. what’s new?

  • yes.. coaching

  • KHuang

    NOT messing up his stats.

    Let the garbage guys build some confidence and get some touches.

  • blubell

    Nice alley oop.

  • sws94

    Not everything is about scoring. He’s trying to get some chemistry with some of the guys on court.

  • Frank

    very very boring

  • Maknusia

    his percentage is on the downsilide anyways, aleast get his points to compensate…with 3TO and 2AST is gonna look bad as well

  • Brin

    I knew he would try to get the new guy feeling comfortable. nice alley oop. Young has no problem trying to pad stats, not in Lin’s nature to do it

  • occupatio

    i like black. seems like someone who could complement lin

  • blubell

    Young should give rookies a chance and stop hogging the ball.

  • occupatio

    if i paid for tickets to watch lin play, id be disappointed.

  • Brent Yen

    Only HIGH %age shot…nicely done…Lin

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That Jeremy teardrop woke me up…

  • occupatio

    sweet shot by lin

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is totally padding stat

  • sws94

    There you go, nice acceleration and a floater.

  • Maknusia

    finally a finger roll…he must have heard all of us screaming!

  • Brin

    I’ll take a couple assists in garbage time

  • Stu(?): “Nice teardrop by Lin”

  • KHuang

    Black from the HOUSTON system.

  • Frank

    who cares about chemstry
    he needs good stats

  • Nice find by Lin to find Clarkson under the basket

  • John Lee

    D is so bad Xavier Henry has a -20, and he’s been waived!

  • occupatio

    ok i can sleep peacefully now

  • Frank

    Lin is the most frustrating player to watch cuz hes always tryign to please teammates

  • blubell

    and mentoring the rookies at the same time. He is being a good teammate.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I want a highlight reel of that Jeremy very deep 3.. he can go deep….

  • Alaingrvis

    lol like i said 2 more points. lin isn’t the type of player to score 10 point when its over to make there stats look good

  • sport

    Except most of his teammates shoots off dribbles so Lin only go 2 assists and 2 points in 5 minutes of garbage time.

  • Rookie75094

    I like the Lin/Black combination

  • Brent Yen

    Rest in….oh…..just good night

  • nodomo

    Clipper announcers were commenting that it’s sad to see kobe go like this, reminded them of Michael Jordan’s attempted comeback with the Wizard. Just sad.

  • Maknusia

    yup, 12 is fine 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    cough cough younge

  • Frank

    hes not thats so dumb
    he doesnt realize how much he needs it for his next contract

  • CJSHYY
  • Briiick

    No I don’t think so, he was trying to play the right basketball. I am sure he knows once you get some bad habit, it’s hard to get rid of.

  • blubell

    Very macabre tonight… lol

  • in the last 2-3 possessions, yes..pts or ast

  • Alaingrvis

    please

  • he’s very much a coach at heart to get his teammates going

  • sport

    Best highlight of the game before everything went to dumpsters with Kobe as PG.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW Kobe 2-12 4 pts. Really feel that KB should retire for his own good. He can’t compete with NBA games. He literally becomes the blackhole of Lakers.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is better for lin then scare athletic like davis

  • Frank

    yah he can just not agaisnt good teams with this awful roster

  • CJSHYY

    Can not agree more… but he still wants to play… smh!

  • Brent Yen

    I know I know…I am just exaggerating. Actually I meant good players do not need to “pad”

  • sport

    First time seeing Jeremy shoot from 3 ft away! If he can make that consistently that would be amazing!

  • nodomo

    Scott is really a horrible coach. Kobe played the entire 3Q, didn’t hustle on D, was ice cold and committed 5 TOs. Any other player, esp if they keep making the same mistake (eg, TO on 3 consecutive similar plays), would get benched. Except Scott let Kobe play the entire quarter. Even the announcers were horrified by Kobe’s play.

  • Frank

    Lin’s inability to pad stats in garbage time will end his career earlier then it should

  • blubell

    Yes, unlike Young who is not giving rookies chance. Very selfish.

  • Rookie75094

    Davis is good with Jlin too but BS got in the way

  • Linja

    Sacre is like Byron, a look of low IQ man. Sacre does not respect Lin, apparently.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Kobe won’t retire, he’s going to play until his contract ends. Unless Lakers waives him, get ready for 1 more year of worst Kobeball.

  • Brent Yen

    You must be a very good comedian…or a bad one

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    it looks promising…need more time together

  • nodomo

    It’s sad. Both the Clippers and Lakers commenters were a bit embarassed about his declining play.

  • Frank

    hes a back up now needs to pad his stats

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    If KB isn’t playing in this game, Lakers may have a chance but with him in the game, forget it. Lost my interest to watch after JLin was out in 3rd qtr because of foul trouble. Did watch the few minutes JLin was in in 4th qtr.

  • blubell

    Well, that was fast 🙂
    Highlights!

  • Alaingrvis
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It’s only getting worse and not better. He is only embarrassing himself more and more each game. His body just can’t hold himself up anymore.

  • Maknusia

    super fast!

  • nice.. 1st quarter highlights

  • blubell

    I saw that.. what was that all about? haha.

  • Briiick

    That’s why pros don’t want to play recreational games, they could lose their hard trained reflex.

  • Maknusia

    its a selfish game afterall, to remain in NBA

  • james brown

    are you his manager????LOL!!!

  • Brent Yen

    They have to…they are fighting for their minutes….

  • Alaingrvis

    he could go for 30 lol and lakers lose by 10 lmao

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s DA DEEP THREE…

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Exactly

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well if this is what Lakers wants for the next 1.5 yrs, let them be but please unchain JLin.

  • sws94

    Mr. Sunshine you are Frank. Try some more sweetener in your tea 🙂

  • Chipdip

    No Laker Big would do anything to help their teammate

  • Frank

    I wish…actually nah knowing myself i would destroy his career

  • Frank

    what?

  • Acbc

    Only dorks treat play time as garbage time. ALL PLAYTIME is valuable as real time practice. Only fools waste valuable team practice time for selfish stat padding. Only bad coaches, selfish players, dumb fans will think that a one game loss is a season wasted. Only the weak minded will give up just becasue the clock on this one game is running down when the season is a work in progress. I don’t remember who said it, it may have been MJ….”I’ve never lost a game, I just run out of time”.

  • Brent Yen

    PPL will start to say he should start over Lin?

  • no worries.. Lin wasn’t panicking, he still plays the right way (team-ball) to get his teammates going but got his pts and 2 asts

    We like Lin’s team-ball so it’s hard to ask him to play selfish-ball in garbage time

  • Frank

    he got greedy
    but next game DNP-CD

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Go ahead!!!

  • Frank

    already sayig it

  • Brent Yen

    true

  • nodomo

    Lin last 6 games. 13 pts, 54% FG, 47% 3PT, 3 Assts. Good sign his scoring is up after that stretch of shooting slump and low scoring.

  • Frank

    I actually would love some Lin selfish ball
    if he goes down that road
    hes a 20-6 player for sure
    hes offensively talented

  • Frank

    had to shut em down on twitter

  • blubell

    As long as you’re not saying it…

  • sport

    I agree, Lin needs to be more selfish, pad his stats, score first pass second!

  • Maknusia

    Clarkson played well…with 20min

  • Frank

    still low scoring
    with Lins ablity he should be around 14-15 ppg in 22mins

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    i wonder what they say about kobe. he looks real old

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Let BS and KB embarrass themselves more!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Unfortunately the 1st 3 shots did not go in…

  • Maknusia

    but but…he said it first…now we know who the culprit is

  • Alaingrvis

    bigs real soft

  • Brent Yen

    Kind of true…

  • sport

    Just have to wait until his body breaks down to the point where he can’t play like Nash. Hopefully before end of Feb.

  • nodomo

    Kobe was soft

  • blubell
  • Frank

    thas the future of nba PG
    score first!
    unless Lin gets that, he will suffer for a little while

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    lets not wish that on any players…let them come to their own terms

  • james brown

    even with no possible replacement sub at the PG, jeremy couldn’t get a 30minutes + playing time…what if jeremy fouls out, as if Scott give a damn! so to protect JLIn by scott from self destruction, he has frozen the time of JLIN so he can play garbage time.LOL!

  • John Lee

    But then 5-6.

  • sport

    At this point I think Lin would rather stay at his hometown to finish off the season and then look for his next team.

  • blubell
  • nodomo

    That was an embarassing performance by Kobe. You could tell he was trying to score because he was shut out, and the more he tried, the more he missed and kept turning it over during the 3rd quarter. Total embarassment. Even the Clippers and Laker commenters mentioned it (in nice words).

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Father and son like to use soft word.

  • John Lee

    Who’s the coach, Byron? Have you no shame? (Rhetorical question, already know the answer)

  • nodomo

    Kobe did not man up

  • blubell

    Execution and massacre it is. haha.

  • nodomo

    Do they watch game film? I mean serious, if Byron is going to call the team soft, watch the film and see who was playing soft. Start with Kobe!

  • dave lam

    Maybe he forgot to apply BenGay to his joints after the one game rest

  • Briiick

    Lin has a gift to execute the most efficient scoring method in NBA, penetrating and handing the ball to a Big to finish. Even butter handed Asik looked like a double-double Big working with Lin.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    haha so….with rest comes with rust. Without rests comes no legs.

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    McHale suing for IP infringement/copyright violation.

  • Alaingrvis

    wait so if he rest and play bad its rust if he doesn’t rest and play bad he is tired. the guy is old. at some point the white flag has to go up. idk if kobe will last this year or could do next year. he may have to play 26 mpg if he want to last

  • Maknusia

    I think we should place him in the blacklist

  • nodomo

    Almost halfway through the season and he’s still rusty? Time to bench him if he can’t compete!!

  • james brown

    again, he is declining and want the lakers to go down with him..he doesn’t want to be alone now that he’s on the doorstep of retirement..ok to alone before at the top of his game, but he so lonely now he’s alone on the decline!

  • blubell
  • JJ Hui

    BS said he is not worry about KB, he said he is fine! LOL and OMG! KB is the main problem!

  • unfortunately that’s not how he’s built in.
    Ever since his HS days, he always tries to play the right way, just like Nash does.

  • blubell
  • nodomo

    Kobe’s been rusty all season shooting 37% FT and 29% 3PT…

  • Frank

    He tries but hes not nash or rondo
    hes a natural scoring machine

  • Young is limited w/o PG instinct for sure :]

  • Alaingrvis

    ronnie would stop kobe cold streak and young as well. ronnie is god

  • I forgot 😀 .. maybe more like 18pts!

  • blubell

    Nah… lets go all out.

  • Jeremiah

    Must be the meds he’s on. Smh.

  • Guest

    Look who’s talking. Why don’t you man up to kobe.

  • John Lee

    Nothing negative about 2-12 and 6 TOs in the discipline of brown nosing.

  • nodomo

    and let Kobe lose the game with his horrible 3Q play. Clearly he was rusty…

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Byron, it is your job to stop that from happening…. you get big bucks for that responsibility. Yes, you failed… terribly!

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    You have had your head filled with too much STUPID LIN HATE from Metalogic and the other hate trolls on the Jeremylin.net forum.

    Just enjoy Lin’s efficient performances and stop acting like a CLUELESS HATER.

  • james brown

    when his teammates feels the love of sharing the ball, thats when Jeremy scores a lot, because everybody is eager to participate on team plays, but when ISO ball comes in and stat padding, you see who you’re real co players are. and Jeremy readily helped them get what they want, will it affect his NBA paying years, it needs to be seen, but right now its the way he thinks and play, so lets just wait if there willl be changes in him and if were going to like the changes as we follow him!

  • Brent Yen

    The point of that TWlove game

  • KHuang

    Of course they’d defend him.

    For the last 3 years, Lin’s been KILLING the Clippers!

    The Clippers don’t want to be posterized any more by Lin, though he just keeps doing it.

  • John Lee

    Oh no Serena didn’t just try to slip that one in there…

  • jolno

    I think BS played Kobe through third to help the Clippers build a huge lead so the Kobe-less Lakers would have no way of coming back in one quarter lol.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    honestly i wish kobe had retired already. he has to go through this for 2 years. they play him like a superstar which he isn’t any more. suck seeing him like this

  • KHuang

    That’s FRIGHTENING.

    I’ve never seen a player shoot that deep a 3 that comfortably. Not even Larry Bird or Reggie Miller or Ray Allen.

    Lin’s shot form is flawless. He shot that 35 footer like it was a 3 footer!

  • james brown

    i think not. a teamwork oriented TEAM will be excited to have lin on their roster if its possible, so it will be definitely not his end. AAron Brooks still is playing, but if you’re telling is his being a star player, i believe it will come. patience and kind waiting for him and for us to who follows him!

  • Chipdip

    Haha.. trying to be mean to the Houston hero?

  • KHuang

    SILENCE HATER.

    Leave your trolling over at jeremylin.net with your stupid troll idols.

  • golfhacker

    He can unchain himself after this season)

  • MoominFloren

    How is Lin? Not following since his 4 fouls

  • Brent Yen

    Played good

  • KHuang

    DEEP DISH

  • Alaingrvis

    pretty good today

  • blubell
  • james brown

    indirectly saying, SCOTT was the softest among all.LOL!!!

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    those tip rebounds yes the bigs was out hustled all day

  • james brown

    because the are Soft, just like what SCOTT is feeling right now!LOL

  • KHuang

    That’s REALLY FUNNY.

    Harden flopping during the game is one thing, Harden flopping on the bench after a McHale “foul” is AWESOME!!!

  • blubell

    Haha. Ultra soft.

  • John Lee

    Why? It’s his own choice to brown-nose Kobe.

  • blubell
  • james brown

    i just hope serena would add his reply to scott “what are you sniffing byron to lose your senses”?

  • Alaingrvis

    magic are next so it should be easier

  • MoominFloren

    Great!

  • MoominFloren

    thx

  • Brent Yen

    I thought I saw FISH……

  • Frank

    CUZ I KNOW HE CAN BE A 20+ppg star!!!
    its frustrating sometimes

  • blubell

    Is that when Ronnie “head of the snake” comes back?

  • sport

    Whatever, coach only knows how to blame players when it’s his own coaching incompetence

  • MoominFloren

    great

  • james brown

    then don’t rest him for the sake of just to cater to kobe so he can find his rhythm, lakers needs to finds way to WIN…what is most important to BS? KOBE or WINNING GAMES?

  • KHuang

    The loss is on Byron Scott and Bryant to a lesser degree.

    Bryant was playing piss poor today. Any coach who really cared about Bryant’s welfare would’ve mercifully subbed him out.

    Meanwhile Byron Scott is screaming at his players for running his stupid outdated iso system that Kobe Bryant has instituted because Kobe doesn’t practice with the team.

    I wonder who’s going to get injured in the next practice as Byron Scott windsprints Lin and the Lakers as punishment for Kobe’s poor play?

  • Alaingrvis

    as i said before i rather lin off the bench looks free. he can obviously score with the starters but that slow style sucks for lin

  • Frank

    ur so extreme

  • KHuang

    Like Nick Young said, there are no guaranteed wins for this terrible Lakers team.

  • CJSHYY

    He played bad today…

  • Alaingrvis

    likely

  • blubell

    I’m thinking pizza..

  • Chipdip

    If he really mad then he should resign. He should realize the responsibility starts with him before any of his players. Are you still mad, Byron?

  • Jeremiah

    Someone needs to tap Kobe on the shoulder and with a wink and a nod say, “Kobe, it is time.” BS doesn’t have the heart to do it. I guess they’ll send Mitch. Seriously this has to be one of Kobe’s last games.

  • John Lee

    In his defense, his PG was Kobe.

  • Brent Yen

    I really don get why Scott did not. I do think Kobe wants to play at all

  • he’s got RANGE and SMILES 😀
    Smi-Lin Assassin!

  • blubell

    What defense?

  • Frank

    Metalogic is too harsh but prolly not a hater
    i believe ping51 is

    anyways
    I believe lin can be a 20-6 player with FG%50+%
    he can score efficiently just needs to stop messing with his shooting form

  • Je Ballew

    BS “I don’t want anyone to be too comfortable and think their minutes secure”. I don’t think he was speaking of Kobe when he said that. Why would any coach want his players to play, anticipating being pulled any time they missed a shot or made a turnover. Apparently he believes that fear is a greater motivater than instillling confidence in his players.

  • Acbc

    No, ur so dumb

  • KHuang

    Scott thought that Kobe’s “reputation” would paralyze the Clippers with quivering fear.

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    What about his pay check?

  • Frank

    and the bigs who couldnt help Lin contain CP3

  • Brent Yen

    It scared Kobe fans more I guess

  • winner
  • Frank

    no ur so idiotic

  • Jeremiah

    Lol. Please pay him not to play anymore.

  • KHuang

    Doesn’t matter what you think of your troll idols.

    You’re becoming just as hateful as them.

    Change your ways and stop bashing Lin for good games like the trolls you idolize constantly do.

    Lin is battling an EVIL coach who has a TYRANT shooting guard who takes shots and minutes away from Lin. Blame the coach and nonshooting shooting guard for the bad play, not Lin who was solid yet again.

    And LAY OFF Lin’s shooting form. He hit that 35 footer IN YOUR FACE. So CHILL WITH THE HATE.

  • blubell

  • Frank

    That long 3 was beautiful
    perfect form
    Lin has one of the most beautiful shooting forms in the NBA
    when other players make those deep 3s their forms are awful
    they make em by luck
    but lins was beautiful not by luck
    hes a very good shooter well can be

  • Briiick

    The way Scott plays Kobe not only drives away audience, it also kills Kobe’ fans.

  • jolno

    The Clippers really ran the Lakers off the court tonight because Kobe just refused to move on defense. What made it worse was Kobe’s insistence on playing PG and fighting rebounds against his teammates to pad his way to meaningless triple-doubles. There is really no accountability when it comes to BS and his beloved son in Kobe so the team morale was bad which caused repeated defensive breakdowns in team defense.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    OK, THIS is a terrific post.

    Good for you.

  • knibb

    I used to view politicians as the least trusted profession with television evangelists a close second.
    Thanks to KM and BS I now see NBA coaches are closing that gap … FAST

  • CJSHYY

    Scott just did exactly what Kobe asked him to do… so it’s on Kobe himself.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Scared KOBE’S TEAMMATES!!!

  • blubell
  • Je Ballew

    When he discovers the fountain of youth mixes an attitude adjustment pill with it making Kobe a team player he may succeed. Until that time, GOOK LUCK, BS.

  • Briiick

    The soft spot is Kobe.

  • Maknusia

    lol, that might work as well

  • Frank

    im not a hater
    just trying not to blame hateful coach and other scrubs who drag Lin down

  • Carol Tiu

    That question has been answered a long time ago.

  • KHuang

    Just when Scott’s idiocy makes him a laughingstock, he ups it even further with this insane quote about a VERY RUGGED basketball team that has FIGHTERS up and down the roster.

    I would never call Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Matt Barnes, Glen Davis, JJ Redick, or Jamal Crawford “soft”.

  • Je Ballew

    Easy no brainer, “KOBE”

  • Jeremiah

    Lin collected fouls because he was the only one who cared enough to make an effort on D. He could have taken it easy and gotten better stats.

  • Briiick

    Kobe sucks.

  • Maknusia

    McFlurry

  • KHuang

    I know you’re not a hater.

    But why WOULDN’T you blame the coach and scrubs who are dragging the Lakers down, not so much Lin? I certainly do.

    On the other site, the trolls blame Lin for EVERYTHING and pretend that Lin is the cause of the bad coach and scrubs. You’re not believing those troll fools, are you? You know better, I think.

  • Maknusia

    Scott could have made Kobe effective by playing SG with 22-26mins

  • Brent Yen

    A good thing

  • Maknusia

    Serena..benched soon

  • james brown

    BUT ..BUT, some other poster commented on the form of JLIN’s shooting, some other here suggested to get a shooting coach , but you are now telling them he has a good stroke and a “Lin has one of the most beautiful shooting forms in the NBA”….?

  • Jeremiah

    Oh Kobe decided to switch from bb to dodge ball which is completely fine.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hilarious 100x!!!!!!!

  • Briiick

    Well said!

  • Brent Yen

    Because he is not a hater of coaches and other playerrs…

  • Maknusia

    lets not call one another as trolls here…if there are issues, bring it up to the Mods, pls. thx

  • Jeremiah

    But Price is still the head of the snake.

  • Je Ballew

    Does that make Kobe the headless Black Mamba? I’m confident that the Elite play of Price would have prroduced a win for the Lakers. 🙁

  • Carol Tiu

    I’m thinking Lin must want to get out of this team already, because playing with kobe is sheer torture.

  • Briiick

    The only players Kobe can beat are his teammates now.

  • Brent Yen

    HailHydra!

  • Brent Yen

    And the toilet paper

  • KHuang

    I’m SO HAPPY for Lin.

    Yeah, after this beatdown too.

    I wanted Lin to repair his jumpshot so that he could shoot effectively. I openly proclaimed that Lin could be a Ray Allen level shooter if he fixed his form. Lin HAS, and that 40 footer he hit like a 10 foot practice shot was something that not even Ray Allen could hit that easily.

    Right now, it appears to me that Lin’s game is COMPLETE. He’s playing terrific unselfish basketball and is an effective two way force. No matter how badly he’s frozen out or how deeply his minutes are cut or how many defenders are loading up on him, Lin gracefully gets consistent results and does at least one unbelievable thing every game.

    I don’t believe that Lin can or should play any better at this point. He’s making the very best of the awful situation surrounding him. Whatever scenario Lin ends up after this, Lin will be SUPER SUCCESSFUL because things cannot get any worse than what Lin is going through right now.

  • sport

    I credit this to Lakers training staff for changing the way he places his feet and his shooting form!

  • CJSHYY

    No need to care what Scott said… he just needs excuse to cover his bad coaching skill… smh!

  • blubell

    I doubt it…

  • KHuang

    We Asians eat heads AND snake.

    Is anybody else like me: a FISH HEAD EATER who eagerly gobbles up fish maws and eyeballs and all that stuff that cause normal folks to watch in disgust?

    To me, the head and the bones of the fish are the GOOD part!

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    I believe your technical judgments.

  • james brown

    i think when a person is being attack left and right on his principle and decisions, he becomes defensive and sometimes vengeful to the detriment of people around him. Loosing his grip can be in a form of DENIAL, and confirmation of this are the seemingly conflicting statements of what happening around him.
    i think theres a really need for the Lakers to Hire a Basketball Psychiatrist because there are indications that they have personnel suffering from this sickness..LOL!

  • KHuang

    I know, but one can be a true Lin fan like Frank and also have legitimate reason to blame Scott and Kobe for dragging the Lakers down!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    complete well he still needs a automatic shot. the new shooting form is better then last year but should be auto matic in a year or two. he also needs better iso moves. as a pg he has a while to go. to play different style that he isn’t comfortable with. his prime is 1-2 year away

  • sport

    I hope Lin can consistently make that 30/40 foot 3 pointer! Imagine how deadly he’d be and all the space he’d have for a fake to the rim!

  • Jeremiah

    He’s literally destroying his teammates.

  • spiderman

    Seeing the box-score, looks like Kobe and Swaggy shot the Lakes out of the game.
    Lin did well
    Donkey Byron may be trying to prove how critically important Price and Wesley are for defense
    Byron continues to be severely out-coached

  • jolno

    I lost count on how many illegal screens the Clippers got away with knocking Lin down left and right to free Paul for wide open looks. Nevertheless, Lin still got up after every illegal screen and tried harder the next possession. The fact that he got 4 fouls really shows that he’s the only one really trying hard on defense.

    As always, BS came out talking nonsense after the game (head of the snake? LOL! played soft? Like playing tougher would help the team move their feet on defense!), I am just happy that Lin excelled despite the poisonous environment he’s playing in. Well done, Jeremy!

  • KHuang

    NOBODY can consistently make a 30/40 foot 3 pointer.

    I’ve never seen anybody be able to do that, EVER. Maybe the Harlem Globetrotters, but not the NBA.

    That said, I still agree with your assessment that the more range Lin has the better. Lin can open up the court for himself by becoming a deadly outside threat.

  • Briiick

    He has been doing it for a few years.

  • nodomo

    Guess Byron doesn’t watch game film on how Price gets burned left and right…

  • cali7

    Scott calls the team soft. Talk about pot calling the kettle. Scott is the one that needs to man up and be a coach, keep EACH player accountable, and sit Kobe. I am sick of Scott.

  • blubell
  • Guest

    whats lins ppg? it say 10.7 but it was that before the game

  • Guest

    10.7

  • KHuang

    There’s only one iso move I’d like Lin to develop, and it’s not critical if he doesn’t.

    I’d like Lin to be able to take one or two power dribbles in any direction while guarded and then fire up a midrange jumpshot.

    76ers great Andrew Toney was the king of this move. He was the best isolation scorer of the 80s, better than Jordan even according to Larry Bird and Charles Barkley. Toney would murder opponents with this two dribble stop and pop jumper. It’s a lost skill that nobody does nowadays.

    Lin, like Toney, never needs a screen to score against a single defender. If Lin had this two dribble skill, he’d become every bit as unstoppable as Andrew Toney was.

  • blubell

  • Maknusia

    Khuang, everyone is entitled to their own reasoning, even if it doesnt agree with mainstream fans. As long as one is not picking and mocking Lin or one another, that is fine

  • jolno

    Nah, we all know how BS always looks the plays of his beloved “sons” in K&R through rose-colored glasses. BS just can’t find faults in their plays (blind love? LOL)

  • blubell

  • blubell

    Looks like Jeremy didn’t do the post game interview tonight.

  • blubell

  • Jeremiah

    I really think he does. He never stops shooting.

  • blubell

    Nevermind. Here is Jeremy’s post game interview.

  • Alaingrvis

    hope he work on it will be looking for it

  • KHuang

    I was THE GUY who was taunting Lin’s shooting form earlier this season.

    But since the New Year, Lin’s form has CHANGED.

    Somebody has worked with Lin and reverted him back to his college style of side shooting that he learned from his father. Lin’s father taught him Larry Bird and Michael Jordan’s form, and that’s the form that Kobe and Lin are using today. And if it was Lin’s father himself who worked with Lin, that wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

    I agree with Frank that Lin has “one of the most beautiful shooting forms in the NBA”. I went from calling Lin a “girlie twisty flat shooter with a T-rex release” to a “Ray Allen level shooter” the instant I saw that practice video of Lin using proper technique in his jump shot while a Lakers shooting coach rebounded for Lin.

    Lin’s technical jump shooting improvement caused me to totally reverse my criticism of his shooting! I LIKE IT!

  • KHuang

    ok ok, I yield!

  • spiderman

    T-rex release lol

  • Frank

    I think so
    just looks so good
    swaggy has a bad form but he makes a lot

  • KHuang

    Terrific interviewer!

    Very fair questions, insightful too.

    I like how Lin didn’t entirely agree with Scott calling the team “soft” but didn’t throw anybody under the bus!

  • MoominFloren

  • Frank

    Ilol no Lins doing the best they can to prevent them from going the wrong way but they do anyways

    I dont blame them cuz I got banned multiple times for bashing coaches and players on the other site

  • MoominFloren

    Kobe needs a whole season to take the rust off

  • blubell

    I don’t think its coming off..

  • KHuang

    !!!!

    OK, I’m now YOUR fan!!!

  • spiderman

    cracks me up

  • Carol Tiu

    Everybody’s sick of him except for kobe, FO and his showtime friends.

  • Maknusia

    Yeah, I would like it too. I have seem him doing few tim.es, but its not his forte yet. Would really love to see him develop that

  • Frank

    Just needs more picks set for him
    Their bigs are absurd
    not sure why NBA bigs never set screens for him
    Lin’d be beating off opponent pgs every time he will blow them by

  • sws94

    Scott is a buffoon. The players are going to get sick of him trashing them and talking up Kobe and Price. That wasn’t a happy Lin tonight. He was professional, but he was ticked off.

  • KHuang

    Not only did Kobe Bryant brick the Lakers out of the game, he also hogged and turnovered and got roasted.

    This is the worst game Bryant ever played in his career.

  • Maknusia

    Bcoz they are not playing like a big, they rather pop.

    Kelly been good together with Davis

  • Frank

    lol
    they banned me cuz i go too far when I bash them and literally insult ppl who were critical of Lin

  • Frank

    Its just absurd
    even u pop
    Lin can still use their screens
    2points guaranteed

  • Jeremiah

    My mom was like that. But me? I’m soft like Charmin

  • Philip

    I think the problem you have is you should not use the word “inability”. Lin is ABLE to pad stats if he wants to,garbage or not garbage time. You are doubting his ability to do it and your negative attitude is quite annoying.

  • Maknusia

    i think insulting another is bad….calling as it is, is fine… but some fans, are just being fans, I guess. Many in LG are getting banned as well, for the same reason.

    When you argue in another forum (which is not Lin centric) one should just state his/her point rather than insulting other players and coach

  • KHuang

    The Lakers under “Coach” Byron Scott have NO OFFENSIVE SETS.

    Lin’s bench ran a clean Princeton offense in the preseason to devastating effect, but that’s been abandoned in favor of Kobe Bryant’s clueless outdated 80s’ isoball.

    The entire team, bigs included, are not able to set quality picks because the spacing and options are all messed up due to the utter lack of coaching.

  • Carol Tiu

    He does, but has selective reasoning.

  • Frank

    eyeballs are good for u..well at least thats what they tell me…

  • Maknusia

    yummy

  • Maknusia

    Ask the coach

  • Maknusia

    truth!

  • Frank

    oh i dont even go o other forums
    CF was enuf

  • Frank

    yah i was to mad at Byron

  • JoeTeam

    I liked how professional and accountable he sounded but didn’t get personal even about his own play.

  • MoominFloren

    Really? You just make me want to watch the replay.

  • Carol Tiu

    Nope, they’ve calcified.

  • blubell
  • Frank

    Lin needs an adequate coach
    he has had no luck with coaches so far
    that Hou assistant coach still pisses me off

  • spiderman

    setting another record.
    several “worsts” this season so far…. more expected

  • Maknusia

    hope all lin fans could be the same?…thats tough! 😉

  • Frank

    If i get a chance to meet him
    i will do more than asking lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Bs didn’t see how the clippers bullied his son Kobe tonight?

  • Maknusia

    he likes records….so….

  • Maknusia

    i better refrain you from going there then

  • KHuang

    There’s nothing Andrew Toney did that the bigger and vastly more talented Jeremy Lin couldn’t do as well or better.

  • KHuang

    I’m TOO MEAN to be that professional and accountable.

    I’ve gotten very nasty with employers who threw me under the bus, and I never got punished for it either! But I was not in a team situation like what Lin is in.

  • Maknusia

    The Strangler had talent as well

  • Maknusia

    me too

  • JoeTeam

    That is coming later when he’s the anointed leader. He is going to be laser polite in about 3 years.

  • jolno

    When Kobe was younger, he threatened to leave the Lakers via free agency to join the Clippers to gain leverage in negotiations. I guess tonight he actually did play for the Clippers after all LOL.

  • KHuang

    The only adequate coach Lin ever had at the professional level for an extended time was Eric Musselman of the Reno Bighorns in the D League.

    Musselman had Danny Green, Steven Novak, Marcus Landry, and Lin.

    Lin’s Reno Bighorn team would CRUSH Lin’s Lakers today, even if Lin today was playing against 2011 D League Lin!!!

  • Jeremiah

    Lol Give Kobe a break. He’s probably done, finito, kaput. He just doesn’t know it yet.

  • KHuang

    YES HE DID.

    The Strangler was probably the best SG in the NBA before stress fractures in both feet knocked him out right before the Jordan era.

    But I consider Lin a far greater talent than the Boston Strangler!

  • KHuang

    The other day, I bit into a freshly steamed tilapia straight from the tank.

    It was a FEMALE with EGGS!

    I ate all the eggs – and the skin – and the gills – and the lips – and the fins – EVERYTHING!

  • spiderman

    they help you see better

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    My mom and grandmother are soft like Charmin too.

    When I was a kid, my mom and grandmother screamed at disgust at my father as he ate the eyeballs and maw and fins and sucked the flesh off the bones. He looked up at them briefly, and then went back to eating them while they called him a “trash compactor”. I was embarrassed and yet sympathetic for my “poor” father who just kept sucking the bones and chewing on the fins.

    Now that I’m a fully grown man who’s semi mature, I decided to try eating the same “garbage” parts my dad did. VOILA, I immediately discovered that he was eating the juicest tastiest parts! That’s because the fish tastes best closest to the bone and the “itsy bitsy” parts of the fish are DELECTABLE! Then I understood: my dad was eating the GOOD PARTS and he was HOARDING it all for himself!!!

    I now get a total kick out of eating the “refuse” parts of the fish as my fellow diners watch in gastronomic horror. But I have even managed to convert a few people to my eyeball eating ways!

  • KHuang

    Lin ALREADY IS – with his well placed media barbs and his stellar play!

  • Maknusia

    I love the eggs as well, normally would fry them

  • joyce ward

    It is always interesting to me that when you call beat LA reporters out on twitter in how defensive they get. My tkele is that you have hit the nail on the head,

  • Jeremiah

    Thanks for making me squirm.

  • Brent Yen

    Well, it is expected….

  • Brent Yen

    PPL who knows how to eat, will eat those…

  • cali7

    I didn’t watch the game as I’m taking a break from watching but keeping up from comments here. I suspect Kobe’s defensive issues were more glaring today because Wes is out. From what I recall, Wes’s main purpose as a starter was to cover for Kobe as much as possible defensively, and that his why his starting spot was never really in question.

  • KL

    Every time I visit America and see the people eat, I always wonder, why aren’t they eating all the best parts?!

  • Brent Yen

    IDK about that. Kobe is consistently bad on D this season. He was really good like 10 yrs ago

  • Jeremiah

    BS is mad as in crazy not really angry.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Yeap, go back a watch the film…..Lin ever talked about someone in Knicks or Houston (?) who prepares the film for him and analyse the game…here in LAL …you go home to watch the game (alone). that’s sad…

  • Brent Yen

    No…I think there is a team who prepares films. They will make it ready before players leave

  • Briiick

    Just voted Lin for all star !

  • Maknusia

    mos of us are not trained to eat..and then again, it depends which part one come from, and cultural impact around the area as well

  • sport

    Might not be a bad thing if he did.

  • TK Wong

    I liked Jeremy’s 3 assists tonight … each showed his high BBIQ , ability to create, and skill level: 1) spin down the lane and pass to Boozer for layup 2) Alleyoop to Black for slamdunk. 3) drawing double team at top of key them finding Clarkson under basket for layup . Wish JLIN had more opportunity to create as the PG for Lakers .

  • sport

    It’s sad to see Lin on his way play the best game of his season only to get held down by Kobe and his teammates. When he hit that 40 foot 3 pointer, it could’ve been a Linsanity game without BS and Kobe.

  • blubell

    Full highlights.

  • Brent Yen

    It was a pretty good game for him….

  • blubell

    When Jeremy made the deep 3 everyone celebrated except Kobe. If you see the highlight, Kobe actually looks away. What a teammate.

  • KL

    Yeah I understand and it’s great! Cultural diversity is what makes travelling fun.

  • LAC PostGame thread is now open.
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g36-lal-lac-postgame-thread/

    Despite Lakers lost in a blowout, we got a treat of Lin hitting a beautiful 30footer like he shot Free-Throw easily. Plus he stayed aggressive to get 12pts and did his best to guard CP3 and all Clippers around (thankfully not posterized by Griffin when he dunked). And got to play the unexpected 5 min garbage time like a New Year’s gift from BScott.

    So I’m quite happy =)

  • CJSHYY

    He sure upset Lin played well bc he is getting older & older everyday…

  • cali7

    He didn’t look worse? I think it would be better if he did, as there’s greater exposure. Since it involves the Clippers this kind of game from him is even worse in a way. In the end though, we know who has control over this team and/or organization.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Let’s compare the last two games; the game against the Trailblazers and the game against the Clippers. The obvious differences are in one player, Kobe , and the game plan of Coach Scott.

    Byron only blamed the loss on his players but it is the same team, and the same players except Kobe. If the team is soft. It is soft because of Kobe and Byron. There were competitive in the last leg of back to back games. How come they suddenly become soft in the home court. This is not a logical answer for the blown out loss.

    The logical answer is the team is only soft when Kobe is in and Scott make changes with the team. If they had stayed with the same lineup in Portland, the team might still be competitive. The Clippers is not much better than the Trailblazers on the record.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is the same team which wasn’t soft when they played w/o Kobe. The logical explanation could only be the lack of team chemistry in this game against the Clippers when Kobe played the PG. On the other hand, as a fan I saw that the Lakers played into the hands of the Clippers. The Clippers knew exactly what the Lakers were going to do and they defended the Lakers well. The Lakers however didn’t have a clue what the Clippers were doing and they couldn’t defend the Clippers for this reason.

    Byron should be responsible for this loss. The Lakers has never been in the game. The game plan was designed by the Lakers’ coaches. I really don’t think the Clippers is that much better than the Trailblazers. It’s the coaches who made the game plan which simply failed.

    It’s definitely that the same players suddenly don’t give an effort to play. It’s incredible. They are professional. They all want to win the game. Coach, it’s your game plan which wasn’t working! Your players were played into the hands of your opposition. I called this incompetent coaching, wouldn’t you?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin can use some deadly ankle-breaking crossovers.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe is just a small part of the team and he boosted himself up too much out of proportion.
    Sports writers have kept on telling us that the team actually played better w/o him. The current Kobe is definitely not leading the team well although he’s given the role by default.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron Scott and Kobe are just like generals sending his soldiers to battlefield but they all got ambushed and totally outplayed by the opposition. This irresponsible generals called the valiant soldiers who have been playing hard all the time soft, charmin, etc.

    Figure this out. Who is losing the games before the battles even begin? The Clippers employ sound strategy and excellent plays to score on the Lakers. They dunked the ball so many times that I began to have pity on the hoop of the Laker. Coach, your game plan wasn’t working at all. You haven’t made enough adjustments to compensate for your dismal planning when they didn’t work out for the team.

    Bench Kobe and Fire Byron Scott is the only thing that is needed to turn this team around.

  • 7iger

    Nah, they just “missing Price.”

  • 7iger

    Some showtime friends probably sick of Kobe too but like Worthy said it is hard to criticize friends.

  • 7iger

  • 7iger

    It would be easier for Kobe to get 3D with TOs than rebounds.

  • 7iger

    Yeah, I stop watching right about there too. The outcome already determine at the point.

  • 7iger

    He didn’t just look like, he was a double-double when Lin and him were starters.

    my all my asian elders say that lol
