G39 MIA @ LAL Game Thread

Will Jeremy continue his aggressiveness to score so Byron would have to give him more than 19 min to close the 4th quarter?

Will Kobe play?

Let’s keep smiling and play your heart out, JLin!

    Go JLin! Play well; stay healthy; have fun!

  • John Lee

    Second! (pun)

  • orLinaryjoe

    speedy!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Just refreshed and saw the new thread:-)

  • Maknusia

    Again, Gals rules!

  • John Lee

    During Kobe’s absence the Djangos have rised from 30th place in points allowed to 29th.

  • John Lee

    Would trading BS to a different team result in the Josh Smith effect for the Lakers team? 😉

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yes, an alternate reality.

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe is back, I am afraid I might have to watch an ugly game….

  • John Lee

    No worries, probably not much of a game, just some bad theatrical play between “father and son”.

    Byron also hard capped Kobe’s minutes at 32, which Byron said he wouldn’t break even if the Lakers are in overtime.

  • Briiick

    It really depends on which player he plans to kiss.

  • Brent Yen

    32? Hahahahaha

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Maknusia

    keeping my fingers crossed…with closed eyes

  • Briiick

    Is BS KB’s agent ?

  • Maknusia

    lol, maybe he is trying to have a backup job, in the event coaching is not available

  • Frank

    Lin in early then

  • Brent Yen

    U mean out?

  • 1mtoldman

    atlanta sat up 3/5th of their starting lineup 2nite and still obliterated the philadelphia tankers.

    ” It is not a good thing for the NBA when a one team can intentionally field their B-Team yet still utterly demolish another team’s best players.” –fan comment.

  • 1mtoldman

    gals always rule.

  • Joe what do you know

    I think it’s time for Batman to come and put BS into Arkham Assylum… Dude is exhibiting symptoms of insanity and tendency of becoming a sociopath for destruction.

  • Brent Yen

    We definately need coach Anzai….

  • 1mtoldman

    wow mo williams gets a start tonite for minn and puts up 42! (make that 45!!!)–off the top of my head i had i think williams as the only non-starting guard with better #s than lin for the year. (and wasnt lin at williams camp pre-season?)–

    shows what a “back-up” point guard can do.

  • Frank

    In
    cuz Kobe will handle the ball more
    ronnie becomes redundant

  • Brent Yen

    He was an all star…right?

  • Frank

    Hope Kobe has another 2-12 game an awful game
    this time he will seriously consider shutting down or even retiring
    but at the same time
    as a bball fan growing up watching kobe go at it against Iverson, Vinsainity and all
    It makes me sad to see him go like this already lost a Nash now kobe its not fun tbh

  • Frank

    Mo is a decent PG
    he was only coming off the bench now cuz hes old
    he used to be a good starting pg

  • 1mtoldman

    2008 2009 i think. probably with cleveland. had about 3 or 4 really good years with milw? and cleveland.

  • John Lee

    Hmmm…who else fits this profile? 😉

  • Frank

    oh and zach lavine is gone lol

  • Frank

    lol Lin aint old

  • John Lee

    His sole purpose was to troll the Lakers that one game. 🙂

  • joyce ward

    Shahan Ahmed followed you

    This guy is a NCLA Laker reporter

  • JoeTeam

    Go Lin:
    23 mins
    16/6a/4r/3s
    Want FTs, if so … 19 pts hehe.

  • 1mtoldman

    actually not looking at age but as i was saying i beleive without looking it up that williams and lins #s are pretty similar this year. and probably the top 2 non-starting pg’s in the league.

  • JoeTeam

    easy, just boxscore the Kobe parts …

  • John Lee

    I meant Kobe. Used to be good and now old, should come off bench.

  • Brent Yen

    I like to follow the flow tho…..lin is not playing enough minutes to allow me doing that..

  • Frank

    luv it

  • Frank

    mo has more mins and plays set for him

  • Samuel

    you are happy with only 23 minuters? look what Scott have done to us 🙁

  • Frank

    used to be GREAT but selfish and still selfish
    he needs to retire but Kobe cant come off the bench his pride wont allow that

  • Frank

    id prefer 18pts 4a 4r 1stl in 20mins

  • Brent Yen

    lol

  • 1mtoldman

    holy batman old mo going for 50 tonite to break the minn losing streak.

    shows you what a backup point guard can do.

    32 year old williams playing 44 minutes.

    (lin be lucky to get half that)

  • JoeTeam

    21 is his avg, so yeah, I am just going for efficiency. Might as well have fun while The Picture of Dorian Gray is playing at the theatre.

  • 1mtoldman

    actually yeah 23 is the new 32

  • JoeTeam

    whatever works … well in band so we should get it.

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe back means the end of 1st and 3rd q will be no stat time for lin theoretically…..I think lin can do better to use those time now…let see what happens…

  • Samuel

    there is no reason what so ever that Price should gets more playing time than Lin, BS being BS..

  • rosebud68

    Just wanted to say hi to all. I haven’t posted here yet , but i come here for a little inspiration when things are getting rough at the other site ( the one where most of us first met). Don’t know what i am praying for these days. I really want Lin off this team, but fear he may land in an even worse situation. Who would have ever though things could be worse than Houston and yet here we are. I just wish Lin the best. Hope he plays HIS game and is happy!

  • Brent Yen

    Welcome rose….long time no see

  • Frank

    Mia is a joke Lin will get it done tn

  • Brent Yen

    I am not religious…but I would pray for lin to have more joy….

  • FrankW

    Or joint Steve Nash on the golf course.

  • Frank

    weve been over this…nothing we can do just work with what we have lol

  • rosebud68

    Thanks, Brent. Nice site, bravo!

  • Frank

    hope u and ur husband enjoyed the game you attended

  • JoeTeam

    um, well, like I said, I’m just gonna have fun like the SwaggyP-Lin-Weezy interview. If they can make fun of the situation, I’m not gonna keep obsessing over the same thing every game. Just wanna see some fun, like:

    – Lin at the top end of his games as allowed. How about a Dunk? 2-footed Dunk?
    – SwaggyP hitting a few 3s AND passing back to Lin (since they made fun of him being for not passing back, in that interview and he laugh at himself too)
    – more Tarik Black living up to his bada$$ name

  • JoeTeam

    then 21pts!

  • Samuel

    I bet Scott wants to ride on Price 24/7 if possible, Lin gets less nad less muntes with the season goes on, now he enter the game at 2:30 mark of first and third qt, and out at 7:00 mark of second qt and 6:00 mark of fourth, doesn’t matter how he does..

  • rosebud68

    OMG, it was AMAZING!!!!!!!! The kids had a blast too. JLin played a little catch with my little one 🙂 .Anyway, Lin was on fiya, 20 pts., who wouldn’t have had a ball!

  • JoeTeam

    hey sister! Good to see you here.

    We’re here supporting Lin. Lately ppl have been a bit down talking about Kobe coping, but hey … Lin is now a SwaggyD(uck) and let’s see some struttin’ tonight!

  • joyce ward
  • JoeTeam

    Duck Face, 3s goggles, and how about a dunk tonight?

  • Yascar

    Welcome Rose, good to see you here.

  • rosebud68

    hee her Thanks bro. Gotta luv that duck face after that 3 pt make. Quack quack tonight, i hope!

  • Samuel

    they are really a bad team, 1-8 without LeBron, eventhough they still have both Drew & Love..

  • rosebud68

    Thanks! There is only so much bickering one can take over there 🙂

  • Maknusia

    Welcome Rose…Hope JLin has a blast today!

  • JoeTeam

    You lucked out on the pts that night. Good timing! Hey, I have a q … they say that players don’t sign autographs but I always see Lin signing on tweets. Is he doing that at court side, or when he comes in the tunnel, etc.? He must be one of the nicest guys if he’s signing before games during warmup.

  • Maknusia

    you are one strong gal! most of us here gave up long ago 🙂

  • Frank

    YESSS im happy for you rose!! ahaha (even though i dont know u just as a fellow Lin fan)
    ahaha you must have had a decent seat to play catch w/ lin lol

  • JoeTeam

    Yeah, I’m in a mission for SwaggyP to be really swaggy by passing back to Lin, and for Lin to become the SwaggyD. That would really loosen up the team for some great runs!

  • Frank

    100pts

  • Maknusia

    *clap* *clap* seconded

  • FrankW

    Because you gals are more stubborn by far, remembers every little thing we did wrong and reminding us to no end.

  • JoeTeam

    well … how many mins did Mo get tonight?

  • 1mtoldman

    who’s “drew”?

  • Brent Yen

    Irving

  • Frank

    its okay
    Lin still getting it done and hes playing more relaxed now
    trust me if he keeps this up 11pt-4.5a-3r-1stl in 15-20 mins
    he will get paid next year

  • LW

    LeBron left Cleveland for a reason. Guess that reason is still there.

  • 1mtoldman

    44

  • rosebud68

    He doesn’t usually interact with fans before games. He is really focused. Except before his first return to MSG when we were there and the press was all over my kids and Lin because we were all in his gear. He took pics and signed bed the game. Usually he will say hi afterward . The LA game was unusual. he was smiling and very relaxed . I think he finally said wtf, nothing is changing here so he was chill. He played a little catch with my boy during shoot around

  • grover chang

    My prayer is that he plays with joy, has fun, and could smile at the end of the game. So far this year God has been answering my prayers.

  • Frank

    wait you know Lin?

  • Brent Yen

    Her cute kiddos played with Lin….LOL on the court side..

  • Briiick

    Only LeBron knows how to win. The other two “stars” are good for show and stats.

  • JoeTeam

    Yeah, but for me bcuz West coast is dinner, I give up on the price/kobe mins so I can be a good Family Guy hehe. You’re right about the flow tho … watching the whole game is important to get the context of Lin’s great play (or not less so) … you can almost feel it sometimes, the potential for him to win the game at-will.

  • Welcome, Rose! =)
    Glad you can visit us here. I saw your report on the recent game in LA. Glad JLin had fun with your kids and passed the ball around.

    It’s okay … JLin has been smiling a lot in 2015 and his plays have improved much!
    Check out the Monthly split showing JLin’s improvement (79% on PTS from Dec-Jan)
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g39-mia-lal-pregame-threadpoll/#comment-1791054659

    So just pray that JLin keeps his SMILES in 2015 and gives his best.
    We don’t know what tomorrow holds but we know who holds tomorrow! =}

  • CJSHYY

    Just like Lakers… so this Princeton O system it’s bad?!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • JoeTeam

    Wow, how cool is that. Hope you got cell phone vid. Imagine your sons going to college and high fiving lin a couple of times a season. I’d love to see that, you with no-gray too haha.

  • Maknusia

    yeah and he could still hit his 3s!!!

  • JoeTeam

    wow … in our dreams I guess.

  • rosebud68

    Thanks for the info Psalm! 🙂 I will report here when I attend Lakers/ Knicks and Nets soon. 🙂 (that is if Lin is still with the Lakes )

  • joyce ward

    I might be wrong, but I think with the latest media blip, that they are trying to preserve kobe until next season, I don’t think the Lakers will make any moves because I don’t have anything to bargain with. I think that the Lakers biggest gain out of the season which they didn’t expect was that they have one of the best benches in the NBA. I think that they might want to keep them together as part of the rebuild plan. They won’t have have time to build a contending unit with Kobe on the books until next season. I think if they keep the 2nd unit together, that half their rebuild will complete and it also gives them a chance to evaluate lin as a starter because he he shown himself with the 2nd unit as leader, then it will be easy to slide him into the starting position when kobe leaves. Then again they might have lin on the reading block, who knows. I know for one thing this team is in a downward spiral motion with scott at the helm, and I think the F/O knows doesn’t know quite what to do. Just some thoughts.

  • Frank

    kevin love being lazy
    he only wants to pad his stats

  • rosebud68

    me toooooooo!

  • if I remember correctly, JLin always had great games when you watched in NY :]
    Wow, you must have the right timing on JLin’s good games.

    Hey, maybe playing with your kids bring good mood and smiles to JLin!
    We just need to organize kids so JLin will play around with them, smile and play well in games LOL

  • Frank

    Lin only gets half of thaat in my dreams ;(

  • rosebud68

    Ha ha. No vid but pics 🙂 and NO GREY ! Ever hear of hair dye? Hee hee. Don’t need it yet, though.

  • JoeTeam

    Yes, but who can take over for Lin? Guess you can always get someone. ABrooks I like he’s doing well.

  • Maknusia

    Thats a good idea, more games for Rose and family!

  • haha.. make sure your tickets are flexible. You can always resell in stubhub if not
    Today we heard Pacers rumors from Pacers reporter so there’s a small possibility

  • rosebud68

    Don’t really know him but he sees my kids and me at a bunch of games and says hi 🙂 We are BIG fans, we follow him around a bit. He is a great inspiration for my little guys

  • Maknusia

    except, maybe during FTs…lol

  • If Rose can’t attend games, JLin’s team need to organize kids to come every game. hehe

  • rosebud68

    YES! We have brought him great mojo, or he gave us a great gift and blessing, depends how you look at it 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    Well, the it’ll be a fine sight indeed in 10 years, with your kids 6’2″ and all no-grey! Hmm … let’s cheer for Lin being as storied as Duncan.

  • exactly.. I cringed when he smiled during FTs LOL

  • sport

    That’s why Lebron was smart to have the opt-out clause after 1st year! At this rate he’s so not staying in Cleveland after this season!

  • rosebud68

    Any NY or Brooklyn games we’ll be there, and occasionally a few out of town games 🙂

  • Maknusia

    yeah…whatsup with that?

  • rosebud68

    Yes! Well you know i did make that despicable JLin with Hotties page in Houston! So embarrassing. Someone took my pic with my kids and Lin and posted it there! ugh

  • Frank

    damn thats dedication! keep it upp

  • That’s what Medina’s article reported that they will manage Kobe’s health this season so he can play well next season.
    Perhaps some damage has been done so they’ll limit him now.

    Everyone in FO and coaches should be on Kobe watch to see how his health fares.
    BScott and coaches would definitely want to extend Kobe’s PT to next year since their jobs will be at risk if he doesn’t

    Things must be in limbo at the moment. Just watching Kobe armwrestle with Chronos.

  • Briiick

    The FO miscalculated 1. TV ratings keep going down with Kobe returning; 2. Kobe couldn’t stand Lin playing beside him after a few practices, ruining any hope of retaining or attracting free agents.

  • just losing focus by changing FT ritual, I think

  • kittyhead

    I dont like him. He’s a Kobe fan and admires the so called “experienced”snake head’s O and D over Lin. lol I unfollowed him when he implied Kobe’s turnovers due to Lin’s incompetence to run the offense.

  • #MutualMojo sounds good to me! ;]

  • Maknusia

    but why the smile?

  • JoeTeam

    Well. Some of the comments there went south, but because it’s Lin, a lot of the pics are wholesome. Hope your family’s biz continues to go great so you can continue to see your kids grow with Lin. He’s going to be the boss on a team sometime! Linsanity will come again, if not just for the glory of sports with some other guy. I’m hoping it’s Lin.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s what I thought… I hope Kobe can retire ASAP.

  • joyce ward

    I think they want to keep lin also for his marketability. Lin is a very smart businessman. I think Lin brings more than just basketaball. Lin helped to design headphones for the Laker players with the Lakers logo. That has not been done before. Lin probably has a patent on them and i bet the Lakers want to buy them from lin to sell in the Lakers store along with the other Laker products. We will see if headphones appear in the Laker stores. I would bet they are being tested in the Asian market overseas right now.

  • JoeTeam

    smart, and all these industrious Chinese manufacturers ready to pitch products to him lol. He did get the Linsanity trademark,a nd I hope he gets to use it sometime for his life’s work.

  • sport

    Both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving are overrated stars doesn’t help that they are using Princeton offense lol.

  • rosebud68

    They are shared company seats and we are lucky to get them. It is a true blessing , especially so that my kids can meet the player that most inspires them face to face 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    lebron james, kevin love and kyrie irving and j.r. smith is leading clev. in scoring; as they are losing badly at half to phnx. 11 turnovers for clev. and phnx shooting 60%. clev. d seems as nonexistent as the lakers.

  • FrankW

    Al Horford triple double in 29 minutes! 10reb, 10ast, 21pts.

  • JoeTeam

    Just really enjoying Justin Holiday’s story this year. They interviewed him on local TV this past Sunday night for the late night sports wrap. He’s Jrue’s older bro, and he said how hard he just tries to work and how Jrue gave him encouragement. He was the last guy to make GSW after bumping around the league and playing in Europe. He’s married and seems like a really nice young man. He and Speights have monstered for GSW this year off the bench. Really like his story. Watch him, he’s a jr Linsanity in a sideways way. Definitely not a PBev. He earned it.

  • Frank

    JR needs to let Irving shoot

  • CaliUSMC

    Is Kobe playing? 😐

  • Frank

    Ya mun

  • CaliUSMC

    :

  • oh, he probably wanted to bring smiles positively to all aspects of his game. Which worked for his aggressiveness and shots, except for FTs hehe..

  • Frank

    nope if u can pad stats as well as they do
    ur a star

  • Briiick

    Yeah, turning NBA into a retirement show.

  • Maknusia

    And he shot 8-10 …wow

  • Good for him! But did he come off the bench to equal Lin’s record? =)

  • 1mtoldman

    atlanta didn’t play most of its starters. so horford could freelance. more interesting to me is mo williams 50 point game. that is something you dont see every day.

  • Maknusia

    for a moment i thought its mom (mun)…lol

  • Maknusia

    nope…starter

  • Maknusia

    triple double is rare as well

  • joyce ward

    The thing about lin is that he being pro active in his FA. He tried it the way the NBA set up the rules. I believe he is targeting the owners who are the investors. Lin is letting them know that I am not just some dumb athlete waiting around for the NBA to decide my destiny tract, but this is what I have to offer from the business side of the house to make your brand a household name.

  • ok, I guess it’s still pretty good. I like Horford’s attitude

  • 1mtoldman

    a lot more triple doubles than 32 year old part time players putting up 50. (already 15 triple doubles this season alone before horford) rondo has 3.

  • joyce ward
  • JoeTeam

    Yay for you! Really happy you share your good situation with us. Thanks much!

  • 1mtoldman

    define yolked.

  • Sophie Paris

    Nick lol

  • JoeTeam

    Then it’s Lacob and his crew!

  • Alaingrvis

    buff

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Please tell me the “yolked” he says Jeremy is means “Jeremy Lin looks buff/muscular”….

  • joyce ward

    To grow your body to massive porportions.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t mind as long as his body doesn’t look like it’s eating his head.

  • CaliUSMC

    ^i have that problem.

  • Alaingrvis

    hahahahahah

  • Alaingrvis

    lins body is lean like most ball player

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I like toned guys (and ladies as well). Not too muscular that they look like they’re competing for a body building contest that their heads look too small for their body. Just toned.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lean is good. Too muscular is meh for me.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i always wonder if those body builders can hug themselves

  • CaliUSMC

    Well I bulk 3/4 of the year… Cut for the summer. It’s just my head is too small when I bulk. I’m Korean too.. we are known to have big heads.. I dunno. :

  • IsabeliJane*17

    As long as you’re proportional, that’s nice.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lol. I’m very insecure, sorry 😀

  • CaliUSMC

    Off topic before game time- anybody know anything about overclocking? lol

  • Alaingrvis

    lol I’m into body building its a very bad idea to balk 3/4 a yea. it should last no more then 3 months. also count calories and eat no more then 500 calories then your body requires

  • Brent Yen

    Yolk the computer…?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Jim is a great sports reporter for decades long.

  • CaliUSMC

    you should differentiate what bulking is- dirty vs clean. Bulking for 8months isn’t really that bad. 500 calories is a bit too much. 200-300 is enough.. depends on your body type. 2lbs/month should be max, etc.

  • CaliUSMC

    do you possess the wisdom to school me up?

  • Maknusia

    does it turn yellow or white?

  • Maknusia

    depends on the question…shoot

  • Alaingrvis

    at the most 500. yes you know your stuff. I’ve been cutting to 8 percent body fat for 4-5 months now. seeing all types of gains lol

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Maknusia

    8pct! wow….whats your weight?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Horry talking about Davis should be getting more PnRs… yeah good luck with that. BS avoids playing Jeremy and Davis together like a plague.

  • CaliUSMC

    I got the new Pentium chip (anniversary).. g3258- dual core. stock rated 3.2ghz. Trying to get to 4.6 on stock cooler. Stuck at 4.5 for the past few days.
    Core – 4.5x
    Cache – 3.2x
    Vcore- 1.260v
    Vring/cache – 1.185v
    Input voltage – Auto
    C-states/EIST – disabled

    Getting MSE code from BSOD. Any tips?

  • Alaingrvis

    i started at 202 down to 174. at 11 percent right now. have to go to 167 at the lowest. eating 1500 calories a day. doing intermitted fasting where i eat for 4 hours and fast for 20 hours.

  • FrankW

    Look who’s talking about yolked, Tarkl Black at 6’11”, 257 lbs and turned down NFL.
    Go Jeremy, Nick and Tarik!

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC

    8pct is ridiculous. Do you act like Ben Stiller from Dodgeball? lol

  • Alaingrvis

    lol hahaha. idk i want abs. i am big naturally. so i hold a little more fat even at 11 percent. why i have to cut to 8 percent

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wow the Laker crowd is getting thinner.. or they’re just late because of traffic?

  • FrankW

    Heat test the cpu.

  • CaliUSMC

    I don’t mind a little belly fat. I just care about strength. Cutting makes you weak!!! :l

  • blubell
  • deesee5

    Possibly they’re late. That’s how it is a lot of times. But then I wouldn’t be surprised if they have less in attendance nowadays because Lakers aren’t really winning.

  • Alaingrvis

    i want aesthetics lol all i care about. could be week like a girls. as long as i look good

  • sport

    JLin looks happy and his form and shots look great!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    As usual Heat is feasting on those points from TOs…

    I’d like to call this “game ovah” as early as 1Q

  • deesee5

    #becausetanking

  • Briiick

    No worry, coach allows him to average up.

  • golfhacker

    They know the game doesn’t really start until Jeremy gets in the game)

  • Rene#17

    Just cheer for the Heats until JLin comes in. Very ugly.

  • sport

    LMAO down 8, Kobe chucks another miss. So glad Lin doesn’t care about this anymore and is all smiles!

  • Maknusia

    havent played with this processor, but according to the review should be able to get up to 4.6. Was your volt increment small enough for each step (jump)? what was the recorded temp?

  • Alaingrvis

    lol 10-0

  • CaliUSMC

    175 is a great a weight for mass and asthetics… gotta be around 5’8′-5’10 though.

  • BobbyH

    5 min into a game with zero score. Would this a NBA record?

  • Maknusia

    Bad start! shots not falling

  • sport

    Great return of Kobe LMAO.

  • 1mtoldman

    0 for 9 got to love those starters

  • Alaingrvis

    5’9

  • occupatio

    what an embarrassment. just take them off the court already.

  • Maknusia

    if BScott is smart he would make adjustments now, not waiting for a 20pt diff

  • JW

    for some reason, I thought Stu said “the Fakers looking for their 1st pt.”

  • Alaingrvis

    once i start eating regular again ill go from 167 to 173 ish.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    For some random reason I still don’t like Heat.

  • Maknusia

    another record??! LAL is all about records then…lol

  • Alaingrvis

    12-0

  • Love Lin

    An ugly start.. 10-0.. ridiculous..

  • Alaingrvis

    scott does zero subs. smh

  • 1mtoldman

    wonder what is the record for most consecutive missed shots to start a game.

  • Chipdip

    Waiting for Jeremy to score???

  • IsabeliJane*17

    No tweaks on the lineup? LOL how long will BS do so? When the team is down 20-0? hahahaha

  • JW

    BS is fine letting these guys work their way out, but Lin make 1 mistake, he’s out

  • Chipdip

    Ok the real “starters” are coming in…

  • Rene#17

    This is soooo bad. Why am I so happy?????

  • BobbyH

    Half of the quarter and zero score.

  • blubell

    except Jeremy. smh.

  • FrankW

    Overclocking is kinda like nitro fuel injection. Need to
    know your risk/reward ratio. Hey I think Volvo is coming out with a triple
    charged 450 hp four cylinder engine! My old lady wants one, needs go shopping
    in a hurry.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Freakin’ need Jeremy to play along Tarik and Boozer..OH WAIT…..

  • JW

    sure, keep KB in

  • Rick Johnson

    Good thing Kobe is back, otherwise they might get blown out.

  • JoeTeam

    Need Lin now hehe.

  • knibb

    LA score reflects BS’s basketball IQ.

  • occupatio

    watch kobe play the ENTIRE first quarter. just watch

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I love the sarcasm of this post…too bad I can’t upvote 100 times.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    well

  • Chipdip

    18:0 …still no Lin…. no win

  • Maknusia

    thats good portion of muscle mass. IF, yea…i hate that. I maintain at 12-15bf thru out the season. Keeps my life balanced and easy. I eat everything. could easily gulp 2-3 chick a day…lol Friends hate to travel with me, since i eat all the time

  • sport

    LOL down 16 only gets Booz, Young, and Black in when they really need 2nd unit and Lin!

  • Maknusia

    nice to see changes in the lineup, but get Lin in there!

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is so deep in the dog house

  • webattorney

    Whiteside much better than any Lakers big, including Tarik Black. Impressive.

  • Chipdip

    Beautiful! BS strategy at work…

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Rookie is hungrier than the vet bigs..it’s embarrassing for these vets.

  • golfhacker

    Are we having fun yet?

  • Briiick

    Kobe should really change his BS agent, who makes him look really dumb.

  • JW

    BS is saving Lin from having a bad +/-

  • Maknusia

    HEATing is fun

  • 1mtoldman

    kobes return energizes the starters.

  • Chipdip

    OK Jeremy s getting ready… the real game starts shortly

  • Alaingrvis

    if you eat a lot and stay lean then your metabolism is fast. so if you wanted to build muscle you would need to either eat a lot or do less moving around

  • grover chang

    I don’t think there is enought charmin to clean this mess up!

  • LW

    0-18! is that a record? espn scoreboard is not showing the scores for this game.

  • BobbyH

    There is only one word to describe: PATHETIC

  • james brown

    great defense..nice BS?????

  • blubell

    Jeremy is in!

  • sws94

    Pathetic.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Mop ain’t enough either

  • Chipdip

    16 pt to climb out… shxxxx

  • CaliUSMC

    Thanks. 🙂

    (Using my nerd voice)-
    I first used prime95.. but saw that it was kind of pointless since theres no AVX. So I switched over to x264 (modified loop version), and max temp was 77C on 4.5 settings. I know it’s a little too hot, but 85C is my max for benchmarking. I think Intel rates the throttling at like 105C. This chip was like $60 bucks, so I don’t really care about degradation. I change voltage settings one at a time by 0.001 increments. (proud nerd voice) I gotta say..this chip has been very impressive!

  • blubell

    The “starters” are soft…

  • Chipdip

    Lin to Kobe… Kobe won’t give it back and he shoot and miss

  • Maknusia

    metabolism is high, when you eat alot as well…so its catch 22. I dont go into catabolic

  • blubell

    Assist!

  • 1mtoldman

    really keeping kobe’s minutes down.

  • Alaingrvis

    get a weight gainer. its a drink that give you 1,000 calories

  • Maknusia

    lin to young…received an AST

  • Guest

    Kobe looked no energy and standing around and bricking!

  • blubell

    Come on Boozer… that was a beautiful pass!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Jeanie says…be patient….but..but…game appears is over before it even begins…

  • LAJane

    we can only hope that even this is too much for his body 🙂

  • Carol Tiu

    He’s probably tuned out BS as well. Good for him.

  • LW

    so a blowout in just 8 minutes!

  • Chipdip

    Kobe now sits..great… slowing scoring out of that black hole

  • grover chang

    Man. So glad black was picked up.

  • BobbyH

    It is a wash for the next 1.5 seasons. Fans has to be patient until 2017.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Does she mean:

    Be Patient = Calmly keep on waiting

    Or

    Be Patient = Go to the hospital because Lakers sucking so bad they are hurting your health

  • Chipdip

    Nick! pass to Jeremy! you fool!

  • Rick Johnson

    Young should pass that

  • blubell

    what is young doing out there?

  • deesee5

    Be patient for when the season is over she probably means.

  • LAJane

    bein’ swaggy, as he perceives it…

  • David Kim

    When Price plays well, he plays more mins.
    when Lin plays well, he plays same mins.
    its really BS.

  • Rick Johnson

    Young should have passed to Kelly trailing

  • Chipdip

    Playing Swaggy F(ool)

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    pleasing stu

  • golfhacker

    Chucking.

  • Maknusia

    i’m all natural, and no supplement..lol only take oils (fish, coconut, sesame, olive oils). most of the gainers are sugar. I rather eat real food

  • 1mtoldman

    its a known fact young does not pass.

  • blubell
  • Rene#17

    But it’s Young.

  • 1mtoldman

    young does not pass. 12 fga for each assist.

  • blubell

    Stu… Stu… Stu… Shhhh.

  • Chipdip

    Starters deep minus, bench all plus…

  • joyce ward

    I hope lin starts getting his points.

  • Alaingrvis

    better have a lot of money or be a really smart buyer. i spend 80 bucks on food for me a lot. its hard eating healthy

  • sport

    At least Young is making his shots, JLin just needs to start scoring!

  • occupatio

    lalalala

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    yup, as usual, they are the one who brings the game closer

  • Maknusia

    he tried to sneak in the 3pt, just didnt have the time

  • 1mtoldman

    same old same old. but it wont matter; last game starters still got the minutes in the second half even tho they were a collective minus 50 at half. (bench plus 27)

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    since i travel alot, there is not much choice. Most of time Nandos is good

  • LAJane

    Yup…one second isn’t quite enough…barring the odd miracle!

  • Guest

    I want to tape his ugly mouth!

  • JJ Hui

    Want to tape his ugly mouth!

  • JW

    Is Stu on social network? maybe people are sending some negative comments so he’s sour with Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    how did he miss that

  • Rene#17

    Stu stu you’re showing your bias.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lol thats a good analogy. I like sleepers. I boosted a 2jzge engine in high school in my buddys is300 ;).. And yes!! This chip is the ultimate sleeper for nerds!!!

  • occupatio

    damnit lin

  • Chipdip

    Yes!

  • blubell

    THere you go!

  • CaliUSMC

    NICE DRIVE LIN!

  • blubell

    Shush… Stu!

  • occupatio

    nick has to punish chalmers for playing him so tight

  • CaliUSMC

    “misses the hard ones make the easy ones” shutup STU!!

  • CaliUSMC

    WAIT I WROTE THAT WRONG! lOL

  • LAJane

    One minute “Damnit lin”, the next “Yes!” Don’t listen to us J…stay strong!

  • blubell

    lol

  • I am The Jason

    A 12 pt quarter. That’s the Kobe effect right there

  • occupatio

    when lin fouls, he needs to really foul.

  • Chipdip

    Nice block Jeremy … with your body!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    “yolked” block

  • sport

    Tarik Black another selfish player, took a 3 pointer instead of passing to a wide open Lin!

  • Chipdip

    Starters scored…2 big points! BS, great coaching!!!

  • sport

    I agree, make sure the player doesn’t make the shot!!

  • JW

    I think he was open as well.

  • Alaingrvis

    i have never tasted nandos. as long as it is healthy

  • occupatio

    he was nervous about the clock. i wouldnt blame him

  • JJ Hui

    Someone please tweet Jeanie Buss about Stu Lantz non stop bashing Jeremy Lin! What kind of bias commentator! Is he and Lin are same Lakers?

  • JW

    Stu just for some reason has a negative tone w/ Lin

  • Great defense by Lin to take charge.
    But Stu blamed MIA player’s bad decision and gave no credit to Lin.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    My question to bscott is why do you punish your players in practice so they’re so worn-out in real game?

  • occupatio

    typical

  • Cookiemole

    Lol, don’t be so greedy? Overlocking is always a crap shoot.

  • Rene#17

    JLin to black. Oh shut up stu.

  • blubell
  • sport

    That was a clean steal by Lin on Wade but cause Wade’s a star, Lin got the foul!

  • occupatio

    clean steal by lin

  • webattorney

    What happened to Stu? At beginning of the season, he was fair. Now, Stu just as bad as Drexler. Even Miami announcers are better, although they did remind audience that Lin had a horrible game against Heat during Linsanity run.

  • 1mtoldman

    lakers bench out scoring staters 16 to 2

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Starters still hasn’t score…RP, Johnson and Hill. Bench only Boozer

  • blubell

    Drowning in BScott’s Koolaid?

  • He adopted Byron’s other son, Price ever since he became a starter

  • occupatio

    and he is super generous to young.

  • 1mtoldman

    he went to the clyde drexler school of lin bashing.

  • Love Lin

    Whats his prob. w/Lin? Never praise Lin when he does well, just keep magnifying his flaws.. A biased commentator.

  • Chipdip

    No picks for Lin…. did you see any?

  • JW

    Stu wondering that LAL can’t get that lead. Well, if u have better starters, then maybe we have a chance.

  • Rene#17

    Drank the kool aid.

  • LAJane

    Price back in…I’m going to go do the dishes now…

  • Alaingrvis

    yea put the scrubs back in

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Game ovah…

  • webattorney

    Lin’s minutes will be down to 15 or less.

  • cshot

    hows lin doing?

  • Rene#17

    1st units in. Come on Heat.

  • I am The Jason

    SMH. The Lakers starting unit only has 2 pts. Just shameful

  • CaliUSMC

    This <10 mins a half is real annoying.

  • blubell

    sitting on the bench…

  • occupatio

    hill comes in and immediately gives up paint bucket

  • JoeTeam

    so many smart negative ppl. you know what I mean announcers to other forums etc. Bad start, bad game. Not fun. Let’s go Duckie!

  • JW

    he did fine trying to get everyone playing as a team.

  • joyce ward

    Lin knows the drill, get in and get your points and get out. You have only 29 minutes to make your case. No time to waste. Sooner or later he will get it..smh

  • occupatio

    cant my head around the offense being organized around young.

  • sport

    Price does the same steal and doesn’t get a foul!! Bias refs!

  • cshot

    so no points i guess?

  • FrankW

    2pts, 1ast, 1reb, 2pf

  • Promo Sports World

    Not with this offense Joyce…its a real challenge

  • blubell
  • JW

    stu finally happy that Price was able to cause that TO

  • Tim Pham

    khuang is such a genius…lin will be dnp-cd soon. bs just wants to slowly transition lin to that so he is reducing minutes slowly just like how he kept mentioning price to slowly transition him to start over lin

  • sport

    attempted 3 shots, missed a layup and a 3 pointer.

  • occupatio

    stu ejaculates over price again

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It’s 34 vs 20 @Lakers when starters are back in @6:38 left in 2nd qtr. Let’s see what will be the scores by the end of 2nd qtr.

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC

    lol

  • Pete Roces

    Stu does this do justify Price’s start over Lin, all under FO’s instructions, same situation as in Houston.

  • Tim Pham

    who care? let stu be golly over a team that isn’t going anywhere and stuck with a 48 million dollar player who won’t cant even play the full season

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Just remember I could mute the sound to shUT Stu Lanz the heii up.

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC
  • Promo Sports World

    Wish we could do that Houston Off-Season all over again

  • MomentousPetey

    #TRUECLASS

  • occupatio

    i wonder if stu knows something. namely that lin is surely gone from lakers so he does this pro-price spiel

  • james brown

    stu is the new Drexler!!!!!

  • JoeTeam

    Lin had 8+ mins very std for his 2nd unit first H run. This game was lost by first unit and if BSc gave lin more burn, LAL might close the gap but no. He’s sticking with his mins for Lin.

  • webattorney

    No, Lin will play some PT but not much.

  • 1mtoldman

    i already said that

  • blubell

    I’m starting to think Stu is worse.

  • JoeTeam

    prob 20-23m

  • Pete Roces

    yes, just mute it, Stu’s commentaries are trash….

  • james brown

    haven’t seen it but of course it can be yours!

  • occupatio

    lol

  • JC

    Not surprised at all that this game is going to be a blow out by heat

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    actually what i said was he “went to the clyde drexler school of lin bashing”

  • 7iger

    He will be lucky to get 20m

  • occupatio

    drexler never graduated from anything, nevermind his own school

  • webattorney

    Heat playing badly but Lakers playing worse.

  • james brown

    drexler was drooling also about PB’s defense!!!!LOL!!! Brother of different mothers!!!

  • sport

    LOL Johnson right under the rim yet stepped out for a miss.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Mitch please trade or waive lin

  • KHuang

    No, I’m still happy Lin is with the Lakers.

    I’d rather Lin get 8 minutes a half in LA than ZERO minutes as a DNP CD in HOU

  • Alaingrvis

    i hate the fact that the bench bailed out the lakers

  • Promo Sports World

    Here is the deal with Stu…he at first likes Lin and then hears some Lin fans calling him better than Kobe…he reverts to his cultural biases and doubles down…real simple old school guys like that try to see the player but they judge…

  • JoeTeam

    he’s a lucky man!

  • Rene#17

    Can you get this bench off the floor?

  • joyce ward

    The thing with Lin he needs to come in the game with a plan. Their is no level playing ground when it comes to him and he needs to realize that. He needs to go in and get his points and then help everybody else after that,

  • Pete Roces

    Is there a point to watch the game if Jeremy isn’t on the court? I will never watch it!

  • 1mtoldman

    whats the record for fewest point in a half by a starting five?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    This has becomes a norm in Lakers

  • occupatio

    lin isnt too bright about his career unfortunately

  • sport

    Keep saying that he needs to score before passing with selfish teammates but nope not changing.

  • JJ Hui

    That is why he looks so ugly! The saying is, evil within form the look and expression of a person!

  • Promo Sports World

    Lakers just wanted the pick…there was no winning formula this year or playing jeremy….playing Ronnie Price is all about tanking…just hope a pg need opens up with a playoff contender

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Thats cotton soft

  • JW

    this is so sad w/ the starters.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    WRONG.

    Lin is SMART.

    He plays TEAMBALL, and that’s why his team was winning when he was on the floor.

    Lin should strive to be the opposite of Kobe and Young.

  • 1mtoldman

    cotton-elle

  • JoeTeam

    he’s really not playing well, they should sit him. He’s not able to play at the NBA level anymore, and he keeps shooting his turnover-bricks.

  • Promo Sports World

    Laker fans channel your east coast and start the Fire byron or sit down kobe chants

  • Alaingrvis

    rhythm lol ha thats what it is or age

  • Briiick

    BS plays KB more like this, there will be no KB fans.

  • occupatio

    kobe shots coming up short despite so many days of rest

  • occupatio

    and thats gotten him 20 min a game with bleh stats

  • 1mtoldman

    lakers starters with 1:34 left 10 points on 3 for 23

  • BuzzerBeater

    All starters with -11 and lower, hehe I love it.
    Lower I say! get down lower!

  • ETC

    The problem is that it isn’t that easy. There are 4 other guys on the court. Once you get selfish so does everyone else. He just has to stay the course and focus and good fundamental team basketball no matter what. He builds trust by being unselfish. It will come to him.

  • JoeTeam

    Stu – I’m not so much mad at his comments at Lin as I notice he is constantly lecturing or “teaching” I think that’s the problem.

  • 7iger

    No he is not lucky he is pure effort and determination.

  • Hans

    Kobe’s negative impact and BS’s ineptitude have gotta be the elephant in the house that nobody could bring up in the lakers organization, from top to bottom. Serena Winters, Mike Trudell, all those people, they must know it. it’s too obvious, right in front of their eyes. Gotta be hard representing and white-coloring for the lakers at the moment.

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    Old guy at the barbershop man

  • joyce ward

    I am still convinced the Lakers are trying to manage lin’s minutes so that a contending team will not compete with him for FA. If you want to trade a player for a better player you would give the playing time to show off his talents instead of burying him on the bench wit less minutes. The Lakers want to sign lin cheap as a free agent because they know that since kobe is expected to be here another year that no so called superstar player is coming here to play with kobe.

  • JoeTeam

    exactly. very boring guy.

  • blubell
  • ETC

    I don’t expect Lin to play great with Kobe in because there seems to be a chemistry issue with the team when Kobe plays. It becomes more of where is Kobe rather than where is the basket. Also, we need more players to play team ball.

  • occupatio

    you want to believe that bc otherwise the organization would look absurd. but sometimes the world is absurd

  • sws94

    Shame about Wade, he plays efficiently.

  • Pete Roces

    teamball? whats that? basketball = hero ball, only Spurs play teamball, the rest pffffttt

  • JoeTeam

    I can love that.

  • sport

    Except if Lakers wanted to trade Lin they’d be showcasing him! And Lin’s contract ends after this year and will be FA, free to choose his team! You can bet he’s not staying in LA!

  • webattorney

    Still their best player, making good passes to Whiteside.

  • joyce ward

    What other story is viable to this utter nonsense?

  • ETC

    If you frustrate Lin too much, he might go elsewhere on his own and take his chances. You never know.

  • occupatio

    precisely. there is none

  • blubell
  • webattorney

    Stu rhymes with “Phew”.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin pls take no more charge for this disgraced organization. Stay healthy for your next team.

  • 1mtoldman

    headline: lakers staters energized by return of kobe bryant manange to put up 16 points on 5 for 26 shooting in first half.

  • KHuang

    Not lecturing or teaching.

    RACE HATING

  • Acbc

    Stu rhymes with stool

  • CaliUSMC

    rhymes with doodoo

  • Michael

    Actually the whole team is struggling to find rhythm when he returns after resting.

  • LAJane

    That sounds right…but then I remember being so puzzled that Houston would go to such lengths to devalue him as an asset. I’m torn between you, Joyce, and occupatio’s “absurd world”.

  • ETC

    Funny. I don’t know how much Kobe can take. If I was him , I would think of an injury and sit out. Do an Omar Asik.

  • Chipdip

    Wow…… great BS team

  • Briiick

    BS doesn’t want to let any backcourt player outshine Kobe.

  • occupatio

    be one of us! be one of us!

  • sport

    Except Lin is play hard not for the team but for himself.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Man, Chalmers did a Linda Ronstadt on Price (Mr. Defense) and Blue Bayou.

  • Chipdip

    True… he can’t function at all. Gets no picks and play one against 5

  • Briiick

    Great! That is better than Kobe’s %.

  • ETC

    For God.

  • JoeTeam

    LOL. maaybeeeee …

  • LAJane

    Hey, and doesn’t the starting five’s 1st Q 16 pts set a new record for least points in a first quarter? Since, like, 1975?

  • Michael

    You must be selling batteries 😛

  • webattorney

    Lakers can actually beat Heat tonight if they start playing little better. Wade out with a slight injury.

  • BobbyH

    I thought Rox is the sickest org. I guess Lakers out-sicken Rox. All from top to bottom all cater to one single obselete player.

  • james brown

    for now simply because of other people..give him a just and fair coach and i believe you will see the difference. His Plays is better with a TEAM, because even he himself doesn’t want the Glory. He wants everybody to have it also!

  • Promo Sports World

    What’s crazy is jeremy is a better player now….best backup in the league quite possibly and yet gets no burn….right every lin hater says a very good backup pg and yet that doesn’t play true

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Pls lin it’s time to play ef it. Score and guard your man only. Win or lose is not important for this organization anymore

  • ETC

    Good thing we started Price. The head of the snake is in!

  • KHuang

    Definitely…..

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Always

  • james brown

    there are more than you might think!

  • Alaingrvis

    idc lin has to score

  • blubell
  • james brown

    starters???or the bench!!!

  • 7iger

    1st qtr is 12pts.

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • webattorney

    I care. I want Lakers to lose.

  • KHuang

    Lin, KEEP TAKING CHARGES.

    Don’t ever stop playing WINNING BASKETBALL.

  • FrankW

    Black has as many oreb as the whole Miami team.

  • Maybe FO is just helpless wanting Lin to play min but Kobe/BScott doesn’t want to.
    Sometimes dirty politics just look dirty, ya’ know

  • KHuang

    For the WIN!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    What’s Bs….every coach preaches team first plays hard day in and day out…gets better year after year…work on deficits….that’s Jeremy Lin the last 3 years and each year it gets worse from a coaching standpoint

  • Briiick

    I think it is as simple as BS doesn’t want any backcourt player to outshine Kobe, and the F/O has other more damaging things to worry about.

  • Alaingrvis

    us both

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If this organization care about winning, they would have played their best player or fire Bias Scott.

  • 1mtoldman

    i asked the ? whats the fewest points by a starting 5 in a half but i think the answer given was total points for a team; i dont if there is a stat for starting unit. but i could be wrong. i supposed somewhere someone’s got a stat for everything.

  • 1mtoldman

    thats total points for team.

  • 1mtoldman

    starting five only has 16 at the thalf.

  • Brent Yen

    How was the game? Just came back

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    The nicest coach I met

  • occupatio

    the machine is still on the ‘rinse and repeat’ cycle. you didnt miss anything

  • Alaingrvis

    bench bailout lakers only to be well……benched

  • james brown

    only on JLIN!

  • 7iger

    Then 1st half not qtr.

  • orLinaryjoe

    I can finally watch now. So hope Lin can some for himself. Play free, nothing to lose.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    starter had only 2 points when bench went in

  • Alaingrvis

    18-0

  • JoeTeam

    well, if they are not doing their best to win, they should lose so I’m with you

  • 1mtoldman

    this is one of those comic book bizarro worlds where the starters are the bench and the bench are the starters.

    the sad thing is; in the portland game at half the official bench had outplayed the official starters arguably even more significantly than in this game (based on plus minus) and yet the starters got the minutes in the second half.

    it seems likely the lakers are tanking. (of course there are other explanations).

  • orLinaryjoe

    Stu rhymes with fool and some two words I can not says here.

  • blubell
  • james brown

    then don’t play him much because he’s a detrimental player inside the game! But for KOBE all seems just a rhythm and elsewhere DUMB and INCONSISTENT!

  • 1mtoldman

    correct.

  • Briiick

    It sounds like being hijacked.

  • webattorney

    Man, Nathan a real Lin fan.

  • Promo Sports World

    Asian PG man…Asian PG….at the end of the day some folks ain’t ready. A very good player born to play a game but the league isn’t ready

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Of course. He can assist me anytime he wants too..

  • JoeTeam

    nah, he lectures just about on every call.

  • Rocketeer

    The NBA is a league of egos. It’s not about competition, it’s about entertainment. No wonder so many people watch college basketball because they despise the half-@ssed nature of the NBA.

  • JoeTeam

    one of these days, Lin is going to take you up on all this talk lol.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think it’s more of diversity. NBA isn’t ready for diversity. The problem is diversity is one of the best tactics for marketing and they’re not into it.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    BRING.IT.ON.

  • occupatio

    nba not ready to stop suppressing ballots from outside america

  • Rocketeer

    Byron’s coaching makes sense when you look at it as having two goals:
    1) Appease Kobe’s ego and make him look good
    2) Do a perfect swan dive into a tank

    Lakers are as rigged and fake as pro wrestling.

  • KHuang

    NBA already has diversity with all the European players in the league.

    But Asian? NOPE

  • james brown

    thats what i am telling, JLIN made a positive play and impact on thegame and Mr. “STU”…..PID, exposed the negative out of that..But only with JLIN’s plays!

  • LAJane

    Tell it, girl! 😀

  • james brown

    STU..pidity really is an inborn talent?????

  • Promo Sports World

    NBA wants market share is the way I see it…for years they allowed a known rascist to own a team…that corporate culture trickles down to players…many of whom lack the perspective to see how they are pushing biases they have fought their lives to fight against

  • ETC

    Anyone can see – which includes the entire sports media that Lin can be the starter on this team. It isn’t that hard of a decision. Why not develop a potential PG for the future rather than benching him? I hope Lin gets traded. I know he needs stability but he also needs playing time.

  • occupatio

    drexler is legit stupid. stu is something else

  • KHuang

    Nope, Lin should play like a WINNER and not be the Kobe loser that you want Lin to be.

  • webattorney

    Without Wade, Heat not a good team.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    They have a different meaning of diversity. The world is not just North America and Europe but that’s how they define it.

  • Alaingrvis

    very bad.both bad teams

  • occupatio

    nevertheless, the heat shows how good their coaching is.

  • Alaingrvis

    bosh gets zero calls

  • Mr Chuckles

    Wow, Price is a turnstile without the spokes.

  • orLinaryjoe

    W/o Lin, Lakers not a good team!

  • spiderman

    you da man, ronnie!!

  • JoeTeam

    Hulk Hogan Jane!

  • blubell

    Empathy from Jeremy…

  • Rocketeer

    Lin would get minutes if he was content to be a Derek Fisher, who was Kobe’s favorite point guard. Kobe wants a yes man, and Lin isn’t going to be a willing one. Price has sold out to the team star because it’s his only way of having a career. He’s Patrick Beverly’s twin in this regard.

  • sport

    Went to grab some snacks and Lin’s still not back in.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He won’t like me when I’m angry.. and by “angry” I don’t mean raging mad.. lol

  • grover chang

    Reminds me of Warren Moon in the nfl. They just were not ready for a black quarterback to lead a team.

  • blubell

    grab a meal

  • james brown

    both of them are ..only STU got it from Birth..(being born and named “STU….PID!!!!har har har!!!

  • Briiick

    Well said. Lin plays for wins.

  • ETC

    Catch a movie.

  • Chipdip

    Probably will get less than 15min today

  • webattorney

    Lakers can beat Heat without Lin tonight because without Wade, Heat not good.

  • ETC

    I feel like BS is punishing Lin for playing well. That makes no sense.

  • Alaingrvis

    wth is the heat doing

  • Mr Chuckles

    Trying to out-suck the Lakers starters.

  • occupatio

    they not taking the lakers seriously.

  • spiderman

    only down by 2 lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Elite defensive pg is still scoreless.

  • ETC

    Did Scott see how Price got burned by Lillard the last game? The whole world saw it and for that you reduce Jeremy’s minutes.

  • KHuang

    Will Lin even play the 2nd half?

    This DNP CD Asian thing is moving along much faster than I had thought it would.

  • JW

    BS called Pat Riley to give me some freebies.

  • KHuang

    Makes PERFECT sense from a RACIAL standpoint.

  • orLinaryjoe

    That’s true. Evens the suckiness.

  • KHuang

    I’ve been writing all season that the better Lin plays, the more he gets benched.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Someone needs to check for glue on the bottom of Price’s shoes, everyone is blowing past him without even a screen.

  • webattorney

    Lin will play. fo sho.

  • Rene#17

    Stu is totally bias. Yea right price getting the foul. Oh kiss his butt.

  • spiderman

    0 pts in 20 minutes!
    his awesomeness

  • joyce ward

    This game is all about making Kobe the comeback king and nothing more. The rest of the payer’s game will suffer at Kobe’s expense. lin needs to be smarter and go back to making the most of his minutes.

  • CaliUSMC

    Didn’t kobe have a 1/9 game not too long ago? These games are becoming very common..

  • KHuang

    I hope you are right.

    Lin’s minutes keep decreasing with each passing game.

  • grover chang

    The first European players had to go through a lot of doubters at first like drazen petrovic. Great shooting guard. Now European players are stars in the nba.

  • ETC

    I think BS won’t put Lin in until Price scores 2 pts so someone please help price score a point.

  • KHuang

    If Price scores, Lin’s DONE.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Price got burned by Cole’s 3.
    No comment by Stu & Bill

  • JoeTeam

    if they put Lin in now, LAL wins the game. But they will wait until 2.5m left.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Go Go Miami!

  • Alaingrvis

    you already know

  • Brent Yen

    Came back for a bad game to watch…..oh well

  • JoeTeam

    we’ve seen this movie a few times, hollywood LA.

  • KHuang

    Smarter?

    There’s NOTHING that Lin can do other than play good teamball.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! That’s the way it is… smh!

  • spiderman

    Miami’s fall from grace – they really do suck this year

  • hm… 666 is not a good number.
    Trudell wants to say something?

  • KHuang

    I doubt Lin plays the 3rd quarter.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe now 6 6 6

  • Briiick

    1 for 10.

  • Guest

  • occupatio

    lebron’s team isnt much better in record

  • BobbyH

    He is going to play 38 min until he got TD.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Mark of the beast….

  • ETC

    Kobe is 1 for 10 from the field… The rest are Free Throws..

  • blubell

    and not the good kind…

  • Hans

    Wow, everyone in except the great 6-6-6 (1 for 10, what ????) KB and Price

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Even Back has more minute than Lin. LOL at this organization.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Evil

  • sport

    Still better than Cavs!

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    Kobe going 1-10 is crazy…looks like Scott is blinded again

  • sport

    No just BS’s racist decision!

  • blubell

    Jeremy still not in… smh.

  • dave lam

    Lin coming in to the game sitting at the scorers table

  • ETC

    I am telling you that Price needs to score before Lin comes in.

  • occupatio

    on track for 20 min, if even that

  • JoeTeam

    lin at the horn, right on time to all you chicken littles. love y’all.

  • orLinaryjoe

    BS: “What, trying to win the game again?”

  • ETC

    BS finally can’t handle it.

  • grover chang

    How did Miami beat the clippers

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I now put them as the same.

  • JW

    and you guys said BS is inconsistent w/ Lin’s PT.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    By scoring more baskets

  • sport

    Except each time Lin is on the sideline, the other team calls a timeout!!

  • spiderman

    you da man ronnie!!!
    0 points in 25 mins

  • Briiick

    Why isn’t Wade on the floor ?

  • Chipdip

    Lin sat so long… may be cool down enough for BS to sending him back… BS does not want Lin to score anything

  • Alaingrvis

    price is a bag of balls.

  • Rene#17

    Price does the stupid foul and still is in.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I guess because Clippers doesn’t have defense.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Only reason I’m still here.

  • webattorney

    At least BS limiting Lin’s PT is helping Lin stay injury free.

  • JoeTeam

    he does cause the other team to burn TOs, right?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    He is still Wading for his turn..

  • joyce ward

    Lin better try to score point in the paint

  • Alaingrvis

    and he gets none of them in the basket

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The Magics wouldn’t even want him to be their third string.

  • Maknusia
  • occupatio

    byron doesnt look at stats for anyone else besides kobe

  • sport

    Lin needs to go out there gun blazing!

  • Briiick

    You mean, waiting for Lin ?

  • JoeTeam

    lin in 2 seconds later than we usually see him. 2:28. You doubters can relax, I got it. s said swaggyJT.

  • Pete Roces

    Is this benching solely BS’s decision or FO’s? I am really confused why would LA trade for Lin and then bench him?

  • Maknusia

    Lin is IN

  • ETC

    As BS said, you play well you get more minutes. When BS sees Ronnie plays, he might be imagining things.

  • KHuang

    Not necessarily.

    Lin still has to practice with the team, and the Lakers overpractice as hard as training camp despite ot being midseason.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Except, Lin is growing roots on the bench

  • Maknusia

    Like to see Lin and Kelly do their thing!

  • KHuang

    You should not be gloating over 2 minutes for Lin.

  • Maknusia

    deep rooted…sigh

  • blubell

    Stop feeding Young please…

  • ETC

    We have been waiting for a long time.

  • Dorothy

    well, young keeps missing the shot, guess Lin will keep feeding him

  • occupatio

    lol nick

  • Rick Johnson

    Swaggy wasting possessions, shooting them out of game.

  • deesee5

    Again my tanking theory continues to be supported. Keep Price in when he is struggling badly. Take Lin out even though he’s hot just to cool him down.

  • Maknusia

    Can Lin be a little selfish

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Do you realize Miami put their pg starter Chalmers off the bench to match up with Lin?

  • JoeTeam

    I’m not gloating over 2 minutes. I’m trying to combat negativity with humor. I got your back, bro.

    KHuang, haven’t you been watching the games? Lin comes in with 3 mins left, getting the horn about 2.5 mins. Then he plays 4th and if it’s downhill and they need him, he finishes. Only times he doesn’t finish is when BSc thinks he’s coaching or it;’s garbage time.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Yeap… he can eat by himself… stop feeding him..:)

  • occupatio

    i wish lin would call for picks

  • Chipdip

    Nick! You missed that?!!!!! OMG!

  • blubell

    SMH

  • Rick Johnson

    Pull Young. He’s going to lose them the game.

  • Maknusia

    Khuang dont go into depression watching games

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This “Nick Young should get his shots back so feed him” should stop.

  • Rene#17

    Nick is disguise as Kobe.

  • Rick Johnson

    Young messing up JLin’s +/-

  • Mr Chuckles

    Swaggy getting on Shaqtin a Fool.

  • webattorney

    My man Kelly!

  • sport

    Not as bad as Price’s missed dunk.

  • JoeTeam

    really … prob missed 3 lin feeds or more.

  • Rick Johnson

    Take Young out put in Clarkson.

  • KHuang

    NO HE CANNOT.

    There is no player in NBA history that can sit for stretches longer than an entire quarter and suddenly come into games to score wildly.

    Lin is out of rhythm from the benching.

    There’s no such thing as a NBA player who can play well despite being out of rhythm.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lakers announcer: Lin has been quite tonight.

    Because he’s on the bench by Bryant Scott.

  • Hans

    Can you guys imagine if Jeremy was playing like Young? He wouldn’t even get in in the 4th

  • cshot

    bill or whatever that fat 2 eyes announcers name is, pisses me off so much saying that lin has been quiet tonight. i wonder why he has been quiet??? maybe cuts he only got to play 9 min?!

  • blubell
  • blubell

    played 24 minutes… second most behind kobe. smh.
    https://twitter.com/LakerFacts/status/555232626899189760

  • sport

    Lin needs to shoot some 3s to have a great scoring game!

  • CaliUSMC

    Kobe and Young = 3/20 = 15% FG

  • grover chang

    Too bad lin is having an off shooting night. Going to make it almost impossible to win. Lin better hustle to compensate.

  • deesee5

    This looks like another typical game. Lin is leading +- which tells me he helps the team win/catch-up when on the floor. Price has the worst, yet they just let him play. Yep, they really tryna lose this one. Lol! I’m not watching this game, but it dosen’t look like he’s doing much if he’s up against Chalmers.

  • joyce ward

    I think the Lakers and lin/F/O has made a deal to bring lin back at a decent deal, because he is just dumb playing this way, if he wants a starting position in the NBA. I think Lin/ F/O made a deal that they will sign Lin as a backup PG until the next year while kobe is on the team to help develop him, because no way Lin is this dumb to fall for the “okie doke”

  • blubell

    So many blown assists tonight.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Come on Booz!

  • Chipdip

    Here comes J Lin!

  • blubell

    Beautiful

  • Rene#17

    Lin scores. Shut up stool.

  • Chipdip

    Yes… LIn Lin Lin!

  • blubell

    hoop and harm!

    Linning!!!!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    2 pt game and foul!

  • Mr Chuckles

    Let’s GO!!!

  • deesee5

    Yep Mr. 4th qtr. Where’s Kwang? Doode said Lin won’t show up. Lol

  • Rick Johnson

    How does JLin hit the floor so much and so hard.Careful man.

  • Carol Tiu

    Kobe be saying, “Put me in now, Byron!”

  • JoeTeam

    Joyce … Lin is playing to win. Had booz and swag made his feeds, they’d be up now.

  • Maknusia

    they swtiched?!!! NY is playing Lin and JL is playing Young…nice

  • sport

    Lin with the circus almost off out of bound (NO FOUL Call), Then and 1 for fast break!

  • JJ Hui

    Yes, Lin! Lin makes a difference!

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Way to go, stop feeding cold Swaggy, go in to score Jeremy.

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    5pts in 2min = clutch

  • JoeTeam

    ok, let’s go Lin!

  • blubell

    Linsanity 🙂

  • KHuang

    MAKNUSIA.

    Remember a few minutes ago how I said that no NBA player could come in off the bench after sitting on the bench for more than entire quarters and score wildly?

    I was just PLAIN WRONG.

    Lin is THE GUY that heats up no matter how ice cold he is from unfair benching!!!

    I likee!

  • Alaingrvis

    young is playing like crap right now

  • Chipdip

    Jeremy, don’t feed Nick…

  • Mr Chuckles

    Dammit Swaggy! Come to the BALL!!

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Oh no TO = bench

  • JoeTeam

    Ok, I like you again lol.

  • Maknusia

    he has adapted well, and moreover Q4 is his forte

  • blubell

    ummm….

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ll assume you mean feed.

  • JW

    Stu: Good timeout.
    (bring in the starters)

  • Brent Yen

    NIck ran so slow…..his mind is not there…

  • Chipdip

    BS was thinking the same… sat JLin long enough and he won’t be able to score anything…

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya stop feeding Swaggy he’s cold.

  • grover chang

    Why is he passing to young? He can’t even dunk tonight.throw to Kelly.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Bring in starters please so I can go to sleep

  • Alaingrvis

    hahahaha the starters are -12

  • blubell
  • ty

    It was BS calling for the play to Nick….. instead of the guy just getting warmed up…. too ridiculousness going on

  • blubell

    Love Tarik!

  • Maknusia

    Kelly can really shoot his 3s! not bad

  • KHuang

    I don’t like me

    but I like you and Lin!

  • Chipdip

    OMG ..booz , please pay attention

  • JoeTeam

    booooo … zer./

  • joyce ward

    Lin stop feeding Nick

  • Maknusia

    3pt game…come on LINSANITY

  • Brent Yen

    Scott called Nick’s number again

  • Chipdip

    Ah… this Lakers team….

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin is suck…….oh wait they double team him.

  • JoeTeam

    man they are double and tripling lin – that’s how they are maintaining the lead.

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC

    sub-way player of the game

  • Ken Chatsworth

    No one knows how to move to bail out positions

  • Brent Yen

    Now we know why Nick gets to shoot that much

  • Mr Chuckles

    Heat coach always does that to Lin. Guess he knows something.

  • JoeTeam

    well, you’re ok man. Go hug psalm at the phx game lol.

  • Maknusia

    If only BScott reads Lin’s scouting report

  • blubell
  • grover chang

    Don’t run plays for young tonight, run for Kelly.

  • golfhacker

    Tie the game with a 3 Jeremy. Change the narrative.

  • Chipdip

    Price is in… TurnOver

  • Maknusia

    and some pictures!

  • blubell

    WOW… BS.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin out. What’s new? Turnover.

  • Dorothy

    Go Heat

  • CaliUSMC

    Ok im not watching nomore. good night!

  • JoeTeam

    what the H, price in and TOV.

  • JW

    Are they guarding Kelly tight? doesn’t seem like he’s open a lot

  • blubell

    Nothing from LAL announcers once again.

  • grover chang

    Lin out. Noooooooo!!

  • no ridiculing tone from Stu

  • Michael

    Stu complaining about Lin holding the ball for too long without noting that several Lakers are not running the play.

  • Hans

    UNBELIEVEABLE !!! BS TOOK LIN OUT !!!!!!!!

  • joyce ward

    Lin needs to adjust this and figure it out and play his game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If you hate Lin so much, why not let him go?

  • sport

    Wasn’t even a turnover, Lin got trapped and called a time out!!

  • Rick Johnson

    When Price turns it over Stu always says “Lakers” turn it over.

  • occupatio

    im done. goodnight

  • Michael

    Great substitution BS.

  • JW

    so no comment on Stu on that Price TO and foul.

  • webattorney

    As expected, Lin probably get less than 20 minutes. It’s going to go down to around 15 by season’s end.

  • blubell

    16minutes… is this season low?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Go Heat!

  • Maknusia

    LA gonna pay the price with Price…sigh

  • BobbyH

    Lin can score 8 points in 2 min. BS won’t let him the highest scorer.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin out, go Miami!!

  • KHuang

    by WEEK’s end

  • spiderman

    throw that shoe ronnie!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin’s done. Saving minutes for Kobe

  • Chipdip

    No Lin No Win… Miami, you can win this one easily now

  • sport

    Think there was a game where Lin only had 15 minutes!

  • deesee5

    Lol wtf

  • Alaingrvis

    15 i think

  • If Price finished with 0 pts in 32min, what will Bill & Stu say?

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Can finally go to sleep

  • KHuang

    The Lakers are GETTING THERE.

    Their plan of phasing out the Asian guy is being slowed only by the Asian guy’s superb performances.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    16 min, new low for Lin.

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    Lin with 16min; 7pts and is a +9

  • Brent Yen

    head of the snake

  • sport

    That he didn’t score but was great defensively SMH.

  • JoeTeam

    Price immediate made the TOV.

  • JJ Hui

    Lin was in rhytum and now is out, what a low IQ coach! And i hope Stu is mute from now on!

  • KHuang

    A Linsanity worthy effort in scrub minutes.

  • Chipdip

    Price has ZERO point? … and he is playing at this important closing time? BS, you are full of BS!

  • deesee5

    And the tank keeps rolling…

  • blubell
  • grover chang

    Spoelstra must be laughing hard inside. He doubles Lin once and is able to send him to the bench. Too easy.

  • Dorothy

    Price is in for his defense, LOL

  • Mr Chuckles

    Coach pulls best player in Lin (+9) for worst in Price (-14). So bad.

  • JoeTeam

    Well. I saw maybe 5-7 lin assists blown.

  • blubell

    Thank you Lakers Nation for pointing out the BS
    https://twitter.com/LakersNation/status/555235898128748544

  • deesee5

    Well if the Lakers catch up and win then, that’s a good thing right? Gotta wait and see.. Should have kept Lin in there though.

  • Briiick

    Price with team low +/- plays the longest while Lin with team high +/- plays the shortest time.

  • Rick Johnson

    Link had it to within 3. They’ll never see that again.

  • Brent Yen

    hahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • CJSHYY
  • deesee5

    Lmao!! Oh man. #tank

  • joyce ward

    That is why lin needs to get in and get his points and stop acting like they are going to give him more time.He needs to realize that there is no level playing field for him.

  • Brent Yen

    waahhahahahahahahahahaha

  • Mr Chuckles

    Kobe, nice assist … to the guy in the fifth row.

  • David Kim

    Price 25min 0-4 0pts -14 lowest
    Lin 16min 3-7 7pts +9 highest

    Highest +- Lin was benched by Lowest +- Price?LOL
    Thats ridiculous!

  • KHuang

    On the other hand, Spoelstra definitely has sympathy for Jeremy Lin.

    Erik Spoelstra is Asian American and thus understands what Lin is going through. Spo is a silent supporter.

  • Chipdip

    Hahaha… 🙂

  • CaliUSMC

    Nice!!

  • blubell
  • JJ Hui

    BS pulled Lin out and i hope they lose now, no Lin no win!

  • grover chang

    Kelly could play.

  • blubell

    oops… double post.

  • Chipdip

    That’s the BS way of coaching in action

  • Alaingrvis

    lin played the least of all players who have played for the lakers

  • JW

    Lin deserved to finish the game the way he had played.

  • Maknusia

    It seems BScott has no love at all for the 2nd unit

  • KHuang

    Scott doesn’t take out any player that does well other than Lin.

  • Maknusia

    2nd is like a cold storage

  • grover chang

    BS YOU ARE A MORON! (I know you all know this, just need to let it out sometimes)

  • spiderman

    where did byron get all that hate from?

  • The LinHate from Stu & Bill is strong

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/555237589910056960

  • Brent Yen

    wahahahahahahahaha

  • KHuang

    Lin deserved to START, PLAY THROUGHOUT THE GAME, AND FINISH!

  • deesee5
  • Mr Chuckles

    Like Eastwood said in “Unforgiven”, “Deservin’z got nuthin’ to do with it.”

  • Michael

    Stu: Nothing easy when you go against Price. : )

  • Maknusia

    One need not be Asian to understand Lin, just being Human would do 🙂

  • blubell

    muhahahahhahaha

  • Michael

    I feel you….not in a weird way.

  • MoominFloren

    How’s Lin doing?

  • hohohohoho… Kobe Kool-Aid is strong in LA announcers

  • Brent Yen

    Linsanity……in 16 mins only..

  • sport

    His love is only for scrub Price and Kobe!

  • Alaingrvis

    at the end of the game price will plays twice the minutes lin did

  • Michael

    You have to admire his determination?

  • Alaingrvis

    not playing

  • Dorothy

    AND scores 0

  • Chipdip

    Wow… Kobe scores and the commentary was wow wow wow…. he is oh 2 for 13… in 28 min playing time… Guess he will be the reason the Lakers are getting so close???

  • takemeback2reaganyears
  • JW

    Stu: Gotta admire that determination(on Kobe’s 3)
    The guy’s missing and losing the game for LAL.

  • JoeTeam

    Lin – low mileage, high pay. Gotta smile for him.

  • Michael

    The crowd is more interesting than Stu’s comments.

  • deesee5

    Ohh I see D.Wade is out? This should help Lakers..

  • KHuang

    Who here is enjoying this Lakers meltdown?

    I am.

    I feel bad and even sad for Lin, but I’m totally enjoying the ensuing collapse.

    In all my decades of watching the NBA, I’ve never seen a starting backcourt get so whupped by a hated reserve guard who barely played!

  • deesee5

    Dang did he really say that? Lol

  • JW

    he was out for a long time. hamstring

  • MoominFloren

    thx

  • got criticized left & right by LAL announcers, given no credit for the bench run

    While Price and Kobe were worshipped. This is such biased announcing

  • blubell
  • MoominFloren

    urg….

  • KHuang

    Great perspective and reminder!!!

    $$$$$

  • Maknusia

    i feel you in a weird way, arent you suppose to be asleep

  • deesee5

    Lol I just noticed. Simultaneously reading Twitter and here haha

  • spiderman

    you da man ronnie!!
    finish strong!

  • Hans

    There’s Davis, who shot 5-6 for 10 pt 5 rb, sitting. Lin, with team high +9, sitting. Meanwhile, KB, Price, Wes Johnson all net -7 or worse, are all playing. Whatever.

  • Maknusia

    all of the sudden Kobe thinks he is a 3pter?!

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    My thought too, LOL.

  • blubell
  • haha.. daring BScott to not be YES man

  • LW

    So Kobe is going to have the last shot, the 2nd to last shot, the 3rd to last shot… and with his shooting % these days, you know how the script will go.

  • MoominFloren

    Just check the box score….16 min ONLY
    Why am I not surprised?? sigh…..

    #freelin

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I want to believe on the “about to be traded” part.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol price defense

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    Remember who is the finisher ?

  • Chipdip

    2 for 17… but that “determination”…

  • Dorothy

    LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    lol at price defense

  • LA Announcers : “Kobe 2-17 but never gives up. What a brave HERO!” #BizzaroWorld

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When did con artist ever keep his words? lol

  • Mr Chuckles

    2-17 so clutch.

  • james brown

    My thought three, LOL!!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Go brick

  • james brown

    LIAR!!!!

  • Michael

    Stu disagrees

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    lol

  • JoeTeam

    pathetic handicap on these young men: Kobe 2/17.

  • Maknusia

    will take that $$$$

  • spiderman

    try 3 for 20 kobe!

    you can do it!

  • MoominFloren

    but but but he is clutch, he is greater than MJ…

  • Mr Chuckles

    Post game should be fun.

  • blubell
  • webattorney

    Chalmers doing it.

  • JW

    It just seems that it has to be either Kobe hero or tank.

  • Chipdip

    If Kobe gives up and sit on the bench, the Lakers would win this one.

  • JoeTeam

    in his 20s, it’s a blessing.

  • David Kim

    Nick too..lol

  • ViNuyork

    JLIN has d least playing time among d players…..price in for 30 min with ZERO pts and – 15…SMH big time 🙁 🙁

  • Alaingrvis

    wow scott says no timeout wth. is this coaching

  • Mr Chuckles

    How many of us saw that coming?

  • grover chang

    BS looks dumbfounded. He doesn’t even know what he did wrong in this game. Man I’m so upset. Lin shot was off but he scrambled to get the game back and they throw it away. What Lin and Kelly and black did was playing like heroes. NOT Kobe 2 -17

  • orLinaryjoe

    YESSSSSSSSSSS!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clutch……..less

  • JoeTeam

    Love it, Kobe lost another buzzer shot.

  • blubell

    So how many game winners has Kobe missed?

  • Brent Yen

    WTF…why did they not extending the game?

  • Dorothy

    Money

  • sport

    LMAO, game wasn’t over and bench were already headed to the locker room.

  • MoominFloren

    Are you kidding ?? Too Brave to brick!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    scott no timeout really

  • Maknusia

    my thoughts as well, with Lin in

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    +9 All we’re saying.

  • David Kim

    If kobe allows him to do that….lol

  • LW

    A moral victory for the Lakers? Nah, they’ve had too many already!

  • 7iger

    The 2 best chuckers got the most minutes

  • JoeTeam

    is it 15 ?

  • BuzzerBeater

    C’mon now, he’s gotta save ’em Alain!

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    oh….no wonder…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    All of us.

  • Chipdip

    Haha… if the NBA extends the games and Kobe can win it for the Lakers!

  • Jerome

    Seriously noone wants to torture Byron?

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! I never like Chalmers so much until tonight… Ya! So glad Kobe missed the shot.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol he has a bank full of them by now

  • JoeTeam

    It seemed to be an open pull-up with separation. Very bad kobe mason work.

  • Maknusia

    there goes….sigh

  • Briiick

    What a finisher ! Every tank needs one.

  • Alaingrvis

    still he should be smarter beforehand and save a few

  • JoeTeam

    hehe, blame Lin for calling that TO. Lin lost it over 6 minutes before.

  • Brent Yen
  • Brent Yen

    He is not bad….

  • blubell
  • JJ Hui

    All he did is bashing Lin! The hatred inside him is just unbelievable! That is why i said he is an extremely ugly person!

  • Mr Chuckles

    Glad it ended that way. Makes everyone who should look bad, look bad.

  • Dorothy

    BS did not know it was going to be a close game.

  • Jedi

    I pumped my fist when they lost. Sorry true Laker fans.

  • blubell
  • FrankW

    Lin only 16 minutes, less than anyone but he has the best +/-. What is BS doing?

  • grover chang

    There is only one Miami player I don’t like. Bosh. If Bosh didn’t tease houston then Lin would not be in LA.

  • Chipdip

    Lin a +9 , the next one is Young at +3. Kobe -6, Price -12
    Lin 16 Min; Kobe 31 min, Price 32 min.

    Miami, an easy game for you, lucky you!

  • Maknusia

    Giving Jeremy his best +/-

  • Michael

    So far I haven’t seen any indication that Scott is capable of drawing up a play in the halfcourt that will give the Lakers a better shot than a random 3 in transition…Maybe BS knows that too. ( Or maybe he blew it …again= =)

  • BuzzerBeater

    Happy with the results!
    Jeremy with highest +/- of +9. Got 7pts and 2asts in just 16 measly minutes.
    while Ronnie the GOAT ended with 0pts and lowest +/- in twice as many minutes and another brick mansion built by Kobe.

    A beautiful loss imo, onto the next one!

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Jedi

    Agree 1000%.

  • Alaingrvis

    price with the most minutes on the team. lol

  • Alaingrvis

    the next game will be like this

  • 7iger

    I hate to be right but I was right Lin didn’t get 20 minutes.

  • Tim Pham

    almost bought laker tix, but decided against it now that lin is not gonna play. screw them

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Then Lin would be in Houston as a seasonlong DNP-CD.

  • JoeTeam

    As Brent predicted, a v ugly game. Gnite back to work for me.

  • Michael

    I stand correct Scott was out of timeouts. He may blame Lin for that timeout called when he was doubled.

  • Michael

    I stand corrected Scott was out of timeouts. He may blame Lin for that timeout called when he was doubled.

  • blubell
  • spiderman

    Byron’s basketball IQ is off the charts!

  • KHuang

    I just hate how Lin is being steadily decreased to DNP-CD.

  • MoominFloren

    Hahaha……….i like the hashtag
    #letusneverwatchthisgameagain
    #evereverever

    I feel so good now for missing this game 🙂

  • Linja

    I figured our NBA LP is one worth 1/3 of the $189.00.

  • webattorney

    Me too.

  • KHuang

    I called it too.

  • 1mtoldman

    dont forget with the most minutes on the team the laker starting backcourt go respectively 0 for 4 for and 3 for 19

  • 1mtoldman

    lins dropped from the 9th man to the 10th man

  • Jedi

    Totally…waterfall bearish trend.

  • Linja

    Your prediction is dangerously coming to pass.

  • blubell
  • ViNuyork

    IQ zero 🙂

  • FrankW

    Trying to match McHale’s IQ.

  • Linja

    and scored zilch.

  • Charlie Sun

    First post here, hi all!

    F Kobe. F BS. F Stu.

    I hope we have more games like this. It will make the fans really mad at the way this organization is treating JLin.

  • Alaingrvis

    you know I’m running out of things to say

  • JoeTeam

    Welcome to the nice zone.

  • Maknusia

    its all because of you…you been instilling it to Scott

  • JoeTeam

    whole forum. Need some creativity.

  • deesee5

    Just got back. Wth happened? They got kinda close there.

  • Brent Yen

    It means you talk too much…LOL jk

  • grover chang

    Like this?

  • Rick Johnson

    Should have put Ellington or Clarkson in instead of Swaggy.

  • CJSHYY

    I have a lot to tell Jeanie Buss. smh!

  • JoeTeam

    The opera lady has not sung yet.

  • Brent Yen

    Scott and bench happen…

  • LW

    Kobe must have another record : most game tying/winning buzzer shots missed.

  • Charlie Sun

    Can IQ be negative?

  • nodomo

    Me too. I wanted to type something but it’s beyond logic to explain what’s happening to Lakers & BS

  • Briiick

    Price did a great job not outshining a 3 for 19 Kobe.

  • occupatio

    I came back to check if the absurd world was still absurd.
    reassured, can go to sleep now.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i miss the day of over analyzing lin. now he plays so little it don’t matter

  • Maknusia

    nite nite

  • occupatio

    niters.

  • Alaingrvis

    what did price do for 31 minutes can someone tell me.

  • deesee5

    Play well and still DNP? I still think nah.

  • Chipdip

    Just wonder how the LA Sport writers think about the Lakers after this game.

  • FrankW

    You did know that last shot wasn’t going in as usual.

  • Maknusia

    you need tutoring from Brent

  • blubell
  • JW

    post game is trying to say Kobe do other stuff with his shots not going in. 7 assists.

  • kittyhead

    Snake head’s tough D to set the tone.

  • JoeTeam

    NBA Dictionary: Schedule Loss … when Kobe plays.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Traffic cone imitations.

  • QuietLinFan
  • grover chang

    Maybe Kobe should practice something else besides shooting

  • sport

    Lin was benched for most of the game, spark the team for a comeback by scoring 5 points straight then got double teamed and trapped. Lin calls time out and BS takes him out!! Even Laker Nation tweeted about unfairly benching Lin when he was getting going! I hope Jeanie Buss reads that!!

  • Rene#17

    These announcers are such tools. How can they sleep??? Must go to church more often to confess their BS lying.

  • Charlie Sun

    I think BS and Kobe have gone Linsane. And not in a good way. Like really insane.

  • nodomo

    I like Price as a person but it’s just ridiculous that he got double the minutes as Lin

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    lol

  • Rene#17

    By warming the bench.

  • Maknusia

    we scheduled to win only 20, so pretty much… most of the game are, schedule loss

  • sport

    They can sleep knowing that their brothers are doing well and the Asian guy is marginalized!

  • Yascar

    Hhhmmmm…. Am I right in thinking that Ellington and Price get guaranteed contracts tomorrow? Any connection perhaps?

  • nodomo

    When Lin was ice cold that one game early in the season, BS finally benched him in the 4th. How about benching Young & Kobe since they were both ice cold??

  • Brin

    Lin hits 3 shots on 7 attempts, Kobe hits 3 shots on 19 attempts. +9 for Lin/-6 for Kobe. But Lin played a horrible game and will be labeled inconsistent, right?

    The only reason Kobe has been sitting out is so he has a reason as to why he has been shooting so historically bad. Even he realizes how bad he has been this year and needs an excuse. That is the only reason he has been out! What’s the injury, general soreness? please!

    He still plays when he feels like it so he can rack up the points trying to chase Karl.

  • Maknusia

    Ask the Coach, I doubt even Price would be able to answer that

  • Linja

    This is a no F zone. 🙂

  • Mr Chuckles

    I love how Kobe keeps consistently feeding the narrative (needs-to-retire).

  • ETC

    I believe they could have won this game if Lin played more and if they benched kobe. This year is dedicated to glorifying him. We just have to accept it. Jeremy needs to go somewhere else to develop.

  • deesee5

    Yeah that was the last I heard. But what happened at the very end? Looks like they were starting to come back. Wondering if anybody screwed up right there or if they actually fought hard to catch up like that. If they played well, BS can make a case and be like “you see, have faith in Ronnie and Kobe. They almost got us back in”.

  • blubell

    Jeremy was benched so we have highlights already 🙂

  • nodomo

    KObe is consistent – consistently bad.

  • joyce ward

    what horrible game did lin play with 16 minutes. Stop trolling..smh

  • Maknusia

    Jeremy always gets lightning speed highlights in NBA!!!

  • joyce ward

    Don’t talk abt Price on here because I don;’t want to here it.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Byront Scott is in live interview now, waiting for the word SOFT.

  • MomentousPetey

    With 3 assists, 2 turnovers, and 0 points on 0 of 4 field goals in a team high 31 minutes and 48 seconds of play, your “starting” point guard!

  • Maknusia

    agreed, it was winnable

  • Keith

    @amartinezla why does BS keep taking @JLin7 out when plays well.— Oderint Dum Metuant (@LakerGangDre) January 14, 2015

  • Chipdip

    To be fair to Price, it was not him, it was the coach’s decision. BS is just full of BS

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    I hope Lin will sign with another team next season.

  • Alaingrvis
  • blubell
  • MomentousPetey

    We should ask the Lakers’ front office this question…

  • deesee5

    Nooo.. Kobe is just plain bad now. This wouldn’t happen with the old Kobe at his prime.

  • Jedi

    You mean in relation to his IQ?
    Nah…we’re not so lucky.

  • Alaingrvis

    omg wow its fallen this low has it

  • Maknusia

    vodka helps

  • Alaingrvis

    translation= hey we didn’t get blown out. i did a good job

  • FrankW

    +/-, all the starters in the – while all the bench in the +. And the best player with the the most + was benched.

  • MoominFloren

    i just hate how you are right …….

  • sport

    Best and most entertaining part of the game!!

  • blubell
  • grover chang

    STU-pid just ruins those highlights for me.

  • Jedi

    He got praised for his fouls.

  • deesee5

    Good jog in making sure we lose! #tank

  • Alaingrvis

    lol price 48 minutes

  • LW

    That becoming a Kobe signature sadly!

  • Charlie Sun

    Will he tinker even fewer mins for JLin and more for Price?

  • blubell
  • David Kim

    Do I just have to retire now with Scott?
    -Kobe.

  • Mr Chuckles

    49 minutes. Lin -1 minutes.

  • blubell
  • MomentousPetey

    The “starters” dug the big hole! SMH!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Please tell me which one is Stu: black or white guy?

  • Joe what do you know

    How’bout throwing yourself away first, coach? Trash bin is right there

  • Charlie Sun

    Just as soon as he figures out how to use that darn time machine

  • MomentousPetey

    Was that the punchline?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Black

  • Charlie Sun

    Maybe comedy is BS’s true calling

  • grover chang

    Black

  • blubell
  • sport

    Every game there are “Stu highlights with his face” How can you miss that?

  • Alaingrvis

    ok so a guy at 17 year in the nba who btw cant play every game or practice has gotten worse over a period of time. nope he will get better lol. delusional

  • golfhacker

    But the white guy is just as stupid.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol hahahahaa

  • spiderman

    ref stole a steal from Jeremy

  • Mr Chuckles

    What is wrong with Hill?

  • DLin

    Can someone tweet him back the more important question – how do you justify starting Ronnie – someone with 0 pts and 3 turnover 40 minutes?

  • MomentousPetey

    Naah, not even close, there are already atleast 15 to throw away imo….

  • 7iger

    BS can’t stop mention Kobe and Price in same sentence

  • Alaingrvis

    take all lins player away.

  • deesee5

    Wellll it’s possible Kobe will do better next season. I think they are tanking which is why it looks like he might not care too much, and is taking the tank ride. If he cared, he would have given Byron the stare long ago. I wouldn’t think Kobe would want to end his career with a team losing record and crap play on his final year.

  • jolno

    It’s also “possible” to win the lottery. Guess people should just keep buying lotteries and forget about working 9-5 jobs LOL.

  • Alaingrvis

    how to get -1 minutes lol?

  • 7iger

    We know u have to pay Price but you don’t have to play him.

  • Michael

    So Scott threw the game. Got it.

  • Jedi

    Actually he doesn’t say outrageously dumb things like Stu.
    Maybe he still wants to retain a shred of dignity and reputation when BS and KB retires.
    Basically Stu is ALL IN with the BS bandwagon and will crash with it.

  • golfhacker

    Keep Jeremy in the locker room an extra minute.

  • sport

    Yes they did because Wayne a star! SMH, Then later Price does the same thing on another player an gets away with it!!!

  • blubell

    BS will find a way… anything for Jeremy lol.

  • kittyhead

    Maybe give Clarkson more time than Lin. Price is the precious snake head; he will get the most time no doubt.

  • ETC

    Yup move the bench up except lin.

  • blubell

    They stole a lot more than that steal…

  • Charlie Sun

    Given enough seasons, BS will be able to win 82 games. Just have to throw away ALL the bad games.

  • grover chang

    Everyone gets promoted from the bench except Lin and Young.

  • 7iger

    Pure stupid beyond words.

  • sport

    Great take away all of Lin’s best players! SMH Watch Hill get better stats playing with Lin while Black and Kelly suffers LOL

  • blubell
  • Jedi

    Not allowed to even show up at practice!!

  • DLin

    Wonder if they are moving Lin to D League now or waiving? The last time Scott took Lin out when he was hot in Boston, he was demoted to the bench.

  • Michael

    Stop lying, the energy level was very mediocre = =

  • spiderman

    Byron is a tinker-head

  • sport

    Wild guess? cough cough Kobe, cough cough.

  • Maknusia

    Saving Lin for playoffs…lol

  • DLin

    Can someone ask JeannieBuss to please waive Lin…

  • kittyhead

    I never doubt Lin will run away from BS and Kobe as far as possible. He’s not that stupid.

  • Chipdip

    Should Lin make some noise to ask for a trade? I am so frustrated right now…

  • Charlie Sun

    New lineup. Kobe, Price, Wes, Young, Sacre. Offensive juggernaut right there.

  • sport

    He was unfairly benched this game, he should ask for a trade!!

  • grover chang

    Stu was alright with chick Hearn. I miss chick, but my heart would break if he didn’t show class with Lin. Chick Hearn was a big nba fan and loved the game and loved his lakers and stayed classy.

  • BuzzerBeater

    and even with negative minutes, Jeremy will still end with higher +/- then Ronnie XD

  • sport

    D leagues are only for rookies!!

  • DLin

    No takers though with his contract. Its a hard decision either way. You can’t be to complacent cause you lower your free agency value if there is any talk of you complaining.

  • Chipdip

    Looks like a BS team go all the way to the final …

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    Lin knows the best on what to do, we just need patience

  • Rick Johnson

    He will just give BScott all the rope he needs to hang himself.

  • Brin

    If you are mediocre point guard and want to up your status in the league follow J Lin. It’s amazing how other players are talked up so much to overshadow Jeremy. What happened to Acie Law? Is he playing in Greece? I think Ronnie is a good guy, but surely even he realizes it is ridiculous the minutes he’s getting.

  • KHuang

    Put Hill in for Sacre.

    Right now, Sacre is the better player.

  • KHuang

    DNP CD, then waive.

  • Maknusia

    Bench would trash them with one hand tied to the back

  • grover chang

    I like Price as a person to. He is probably just as shocked as we are, but what could he do? Smash his face into a wall and break his nose again.

  • sport

    There’s only 3 1/2 months left, Lin got nothing to lose at this point!

  • deesee5

    True. Lin wouldnt over react and talk crap. That’s just not him.

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Kobe, what basket? Waste basket? Post? Light post??

  • Maknusia

    some training minutes

  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    Post career

  • KHuang

    Scott is basically saying “LESS LIN”

  • blubell
  • Keith

    Scott was wrong again and need to apologize to Lakers fans.

  • grover chang

    Whose rhythm is Lin talking about? Kobe’s or himself?

  • KHuang

    Yes

  • Alaingrvis

    hope its 2 but it is 3

  • sport

    He’s only saying this cause Lin make back to back buckets at the rim with crazy shots with and1! This is totally Kobe being jealous of Lin doing better than him!

  • spiderman

    50 points in 10 minutes should do it

  • orLinaryjoe

    Was just about to say that. If he stays, I’m not sure I’ll like it…

  • JJ Hui

    Ugly beak nose n evil looking! Google his name!

  • 7iger

    1. Kobe 2. BS 3. BS LOVE for Price.

  • Michael

    He actually mentioned that Kobe has the most missed shots record in the history of the NBA, and Stu was extremely defensive, so he started to back off on his comments. Kind of tells you what they are like.

  • ETC

    There is a God and everyone gets what they deserve. Reap what you sow.

  • sport

    If Lin gets traded or when he signs to another team, I hope he comes back and give them a BEAT DOWN! He still needs to pay back Rockets!!

  • Brin

    My sarcasm was obviously not conveyed well enough here. smh

  • Yura

    Exactly the same as those guys at the station with James Worthy and Rob? The white guy is so scared to say anything negative about Kobe

  • blubell
  • DLin

    PFV – I hope you realize how wrong you are about B Scott wanting to groom Jeremy – nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • blubell

    Haha… You’re not the only one…

  • Alaingrvis

    he said laker scott is in no way trying to develop lin

  • 7iger

    Groom to warm the bench.

  • Brent Yen

    It is not like Kobe played great in the beginning of the season

  • deesee5

    Maybe next season… After the tank is over, and Kobe gets help with better players is what I’m guessing.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin man

  • DLin

    Now but not 3 games ago.. check the record.

  • MomentousPetey

    Lin is not Kobe’s f’in acquantance! Stop asking him questions about other players! These f’in reporters!

  • PPP

    Ugh..Lin says hello!!

  • ETC

    He already admitted this. No need to rub it in

  • jolno

    Which is worse?

    1. Headless mamba firing bricks with some shots falling into the hoop coincidentally.
    2. Bodyless head of the snake just stayed on the court doing nothing.

  • David Kim

    Defensive specialist Price made Charmers all star player 19pt, 8 assts while he made 0 pts. LOL

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Translation: BS played me how I wanted him to.

  • golfhacker

    The Tin Man had no heart.

  • ETC

    Lakers are still developing bryant and price for retirement.

  • DLin

    He still said this is possible but he is less certain now. With this game, I think 100% sure Lin is not getting groomed.

  • Brent Yen

    He meant next yr in an AAU game?

  • kittyhead

    Maybe try to paint himself black all over.

  • Brent Yen

    Who knows..maybe Scott thinks Lin will be better by sitting on the bench. I would not suprised if he thinks so…lol He has made weirder decisions…

  • Guest

    if his game legs got any livelier he’d turn into the energizer bunny

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hill injury next, thank BS.

  • blubell
  • Yura

    Hahahhaa this is it!!!

  • FrankW

    The one with dead legs shouldn’t take 19 shots. 3 of 19 is an embarrassment and killing the team. Pretty much lost it in the first quarter,

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lol not happening

  • Brent Yen

    dissing starters…good

  • Jeremiah

    There is only one story here. Kobe took 19 shots with a FG% of 16. The last game he played it was 17%. He has to sit out most games or shoot in the teens. Kobe is totally disabled. He must retire. How long do the Lakers think they can pretend that Kobe is still an NBA player?

  • Alaingrvis

    lol shot heard around the world

  • Maknusia

    yeah, and the 20 games tryout is about to end, so he might have wanted to give RP some minutes to prove

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    unless kobe sits

  • joyce ward

    I might be wrong, but I don’t ink lin is going anywhere if the Lakers have anything to say about it. If Kobe is here for another year,no other PG starting in the league is coming here to play with Kobe. Lin will have the upper hand in FA, because I believe there will be a lot of contending teams to offer him a back up role

  • deesee5

    Welll, he made a good point about how Lin should stay with one team, instead of moving everywhere else and seeing a new system, and all new team mates. But I don’t think it helps too much if Lin stays. Lin won’t develop any further playing for this team and coach. If anything it’s going to be like this for maybe one more year if Lin stays.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS will never understand it. lol

    Note: Lin smiled.

  • spiderman

    he’s embarrassing himself

  • blubell
  • FrankW

    Lin’s words don’t mean a thing when the head coach is clueless.

  • blubell
  • deesee5

    Better hope it’s the right team this time instead of just any team. Can’t stand another year of crap.

  • ViNuyork

    lol…Jlin get his 15 ml. doing nothing just like Nash 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    Yes, and this is one of the few thing that still gives me the positive feel…:P

  • joyce ward

    What is up with all of the J lin quotes about Kobe..LOL maybe they the media knows something we don’t know…and the plot thickens+

  • DLin

    Kobe and Lin – Lovers? Doubt it.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin talks like a coach in interview vs BS, endless of blames.

  • deesee5

    Sad

  • Yura

    Jeremy didn’t seem too stressed or being hard on himself in the interview.. I hope not 🙁

  • sws94

    They ask Lin because BS gives moronic answers. Lin gives intelligent ones.

  • DLin

    I think he has a back up plan…..

    Probably already had a talk about wanting to get traded. It seems he doesn’t complain anymore.

  • Yura

    You think so? He looked very casual in interview as if he didn’t care about his reduced minutes :/

  • ok, I’m done protesting to @JeanieBuss of Stu & Bill hatred toward Lin with criticizing only but not giving any credit. Plus giving credit to Price despite his non-impact in the game. Good that many Lin fans responded to her of our disappointment!

    I’ll create a PostGame thread now.

  • grover chang

    At least Lin could still smile through all this….or maybe he is just smiling at Serena and she misunderstood and thought he was being optimistic.

  • DLin

    That’s what you do when you go to a new team. I think PPG is only from the team you were at so he gets to start from scratch. I sincerely hope I am right. If Lin tells FO I am signing else where then FO won’t have a choice but to trade him or getting nothing come FA. Too late to showcase him right now.

  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    But, why does BS get away with benching him? You do not allow that to happen if there is value in your player, unless they are already out.

  • Je Ballew

    Call my crazy because I really enjoyed the game tonight. Considering, Jeremy had a very good game with limited minutes. With BS coaching what we get is insanity. It’s not as good as Linsanity, but it’s as good as we are going to get until Lin gets to play on a decent team. NOTE: Kobe and Price played an hour and one minutes combined and their combined shooing was was a total of 3 for 23 from the field (13%) . Jeremy scored 3 for 7 (43%) in 16 minutes.

  • sws94

    If Hill is injured, who starts in his place?

  • Brent Yen

    It is as good as Linsanity….to me at least

  • DLin

    No use in watching the whole game – I’ll just watch the highlights if that’s the case.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin

  • Alaingrvis

    one of those shots was a hail mary

  • DLin

    In your dreams : ) Black Lin will start.

  • sws94

    And one of those shots was a 3/4 court heave at the buzzer. And it hit the rim.

  • FrankW

    Are you talking about a threesome?

  • LAJane

    …what d’ya think, Joyce…Jeremy and his agents must be very aware of this so perhaps it’s part of why he seems so relaxed in spite of the treatment that has us gritting our teeth?

  • Je Ballew

    What did he have to be distressed about?

  • Brent Yen

    No…per that logic, he has to change his last name too

  • grover chang

    That shot was not close according to STU

  • sws94

    Did they ask Lin anything else besides what’s wrong with Kobe?

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is saying what happened to Lin……

  • blubell
  • FrankW

    No way, even Black got more minutes.

  • sws94

    I did too. Their ineptness made the crowd angry and exposed Byron for the fool he is. Lin came in and made the team look halfway decent, until Byron brought his squad of fumblers back in (with exception of Davis and sometimes Hill tonight).

  • blubell

    Post game interview… warning: Ireland.

  • grover chang

    Hopefully Lin gets another triple double and Lebron sees a kin like basketball spirit in Lin. Then demands a trade for Irving and take back Lin with a package of players.

  • Je Ballew

    Until they are properly coached they don’t deserve to win and probably wont..

  • grover chang

    Gotta say, that’s one ace in Hardens pocket. If he doesn’t shoot well he could get to the free throw line for points. Lin has the same ability and should’ve pressed for more free throw shots.

  • Je Ballew

    What lively game legs. He had a long layoff and NO improvement.

  • Brent Yen

    Not sure about that…..

  • Acbc

    Postal?

  • Chipdip

    ….hey… he only got 16 min … 16 min!!!!

  • Je Ballew

    Looks like him too.

  • Maknusia

    it looks like it

  • Je Ballew

    Made our of Charmin.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Lin seems pretty relaxed….

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! That’s why I feel so odd… he is not even mad about short playing time..?!

  • james brown

    no one asking ..happy with 16 minutes of play????

  • Je Ballew

    I don’t think that Scott can spell either. I think he meant DOOM NOT GROOM..

  • Chipdip

    Post game thread is up…

  • Brent Yen

    But it is good I think.

  • Maknusia

    yeah, seems like he understands the situation well, unlike in Houston, and has some things planned out for him

  • Chipdip

    I like he new calm composure… great

  • MIA PostGame Thread is now open
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g39-mia-lal-postgame-thread/

    This was such a bizzare game with LA Announcers (Stu & Bill) embarrassingly rooted for Kobe to keep shooting (3-19) and ooh-aah-ing the difficult shot (3rd one). And Stue helplessly tried to praise Price anyway they can despite the no impact (0pts/3asts/2TOs in 32min) to justify BScott’s decision to start Price.

    Furthermore, Stu kept trying to criticize every single move/decision that JLin made w/o giving any credit (highest +9) to spur the bench run to almost tie the game. Price got the lowest -12 of the Lakers

    Lin finished with 7pts/2asts/1stl/1TO in his fewest minutes (16 min)

    My guess is Byron didn’t like how Lin overdribbled trying to find open teammates. Lin’s Nash-like style definitely clashed with Byron’s outdated style. I don’t think Lin would ever resign to play for Byron Scott in the FA again.

    It’s good to protest to Jeanie Buss and many Lin fans expressed their displeasure of Stu hate.

  • ETC

    Lin has nothing to lose. Playing on a bad team, with a ball hog and getting no minutes. I wonder what he has to lose. Might as well encourage kb to play better

  • james brown

    they have fair wounds from injury, while us ..self inflict one (shhhhh!!! by our COACH!!!!) har har har!!!!

  • CJSHYY

    I guess Lakers did promise him something otherwise he will not act like no big deal …

  • as his TS% just went downhill skiing =) LOL

  • yup, Hard 0 pts LOL

  • LAJane

    To quote CaliUSMC on the lowest number of points scored in a half:
    19 Los Angeles Clippers Dec 14, 1999
    20 New Orleans JazzJan 4, 1975
    20 Atlanta HawksJan 14, 2013

    …and the new winner is: 16 Los Angeles Lakers 2015 (1st half, LAL/MIA) Congratulations!

  • Je Ballew

    Forgot about that, Changed to 50 FG%

  • Alaingrvis

    haif 16 was by 1st quarter

  • ETC

    Lakers are embarrassing.

  • james brown

    and answered Ireland on question of shooting struggle, by saying “he didn’t struggle on his shots….to which ireland defendedly replied “its not him(jeremy) he’s referring to”..nice answer to clear things out..and no questions about that 16minutes of greatness given to jlin by Bull-Sheeeeeeet!!!!!!!!

  • LAJane

    Did I miscalculate in my eagerness to diss the starters?

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers had 34 thx 2 bench

  • Alaingrvis

    lol they still suck 34 is bad as well

  • james brown

    His interview (Lin’s) replies, …..shooting slump may means , “not Much Practice or too much Practice”!

  • Je Ballew

    and Scott doesn’t coach

  • joyce ward

    i think that lin has proven himself to the lakers that he can come in and do what he needs to do in cruch times to win games. Lin is all about team ball to get the win games and not about his contract year. That is why I think Mitch likes lin because he is er loyal and true to his convictions. Also I truly believe that the F/O has had a sit down with lin about his status on the team in the future. I think Mitch thought that kobe could really mentor lin and not feel threatened by him,but not the case.

  • Je Ballew

    Second game in a row. The opponents love Mr elite.

  • Je Ballew

    ME TOO. Takes as much skill and a lot more character,

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Easy because I don’t watch game except JLin was in. Can’t watch the beginning because of streaming.

  • Brewkowski

    No, BS called timeout later to bring in KB

  • JJ Hui

    Thank you so much Psalm234! Now i hope LAL fans chant in Staples Ctr
    “Fire Byron Scott” ! That will be satisfying ! Lol!

  • JJ Hui

    Lol excellent answer for comedy!
