G4 CHI @CHA Game Thread

With 0-3 start against strong playoff teams, criticism started to come to Coach Clifford but they have been competitive.

Can they win against a tough 3-1 Bulls team?
They lost against DET on a road game that Hornets beat during preseason but this is a regular season.

Will JLin regain his shooting touch? It’s good that Coach Clifford still trusted his playmaking in the 4th quarter but it will be a good time to have the preseason JLin back to shoot aggressively without hesitation, even if the PnR with Hawes doesn’t work out smoothly as in the past 3 games

Will Hansbrough play in place of a dehydrated Zeller who lost 10 lbs? It would be a good test to see if his rebounding can help against CHI big men

Let’s persevere to hope/pray/wish/support JLin to stay healthy and have fun to play his aggressive game whenever he steps on the court

Let’s go, JLin!

      3rd for a change! Since I can watch the game, hope this is a win and that JLin will do really well:-)

    • JJ Hui

      4th!

    • zxcvb
    • Did we ever see Lin sitting like that McHale? I’m pretty sure he never did with BScott.

      (I know, this is a repeat comment, but it’s a repeat post too… from the other thread.)

    • zxcvb

      I only recall him breaking down film with assistants in HOU and LA.

    • JLin Fan from Australia

      Hope and pray JLin and Coach Cliff are able to figure out how to beat the trap is setting for JLin and help him to organize the “attack” and get a win!!!!!!!!!

    • Yeah, that fits with my memory too.

    • zxcvb

      Maybe play off the ball more (with Roberts as Derek Fisher PG) so that he can attack off the catch, off curls, off screens. As primary ballhandler. all the defense has to do is load up on him and force it out of his hands.

    • Rick Johnson

      No, he JLin just grabbed the clipboard. LOL

    • NONONO

      Lin needs to attach the rim or no hesitate for open shot. Distribution is the second option. You are the best when you are relax and focus on attacks. Shot until lights out!

    • FreetheMind

      Need a good game tonight from Hornets. Let’s go JLIN and get it done tonight!

    • InfiniteWisdom

      the bulls dont trap as much. this bodes well for lin and the entire team…

    • Arsenium12 .

    • This is good. Thibs wanted his good friend Coach Clifford to beat his old team, the Bulls.

      Let’s see if the Hornets is up to the task to get the 1st W

    • Linzen

      Don’t yell at me… but JLin doesn’t look too happy here…
      May be coach is saying “Jeremy, you need to stay at that corner.”

      Really, really hope I am wrong!

      .@hornets F Cody Zeller (dehydration), listed as QUESTIONABLE, will play in tonight’s game. #CHAvsCHI
      https://twitter.com/HornetsPR/status/661680024756555777

    • Spot

      I don’t think it’s wise make Zeller play. Roster is deep and Hansbrough could do a good job coming from the bench.

      Noah will eat Zeller alive considering his condition

    • Sunny Sullenberger

      Wow, Thibs was really fed up by the Bulls, now he wanted his old team to lose.Just a big Wow.

    • orLinaryjoe

      Zellar was on IV for dehydration. He also blogged before that he needed to get into the game time routine, not getting enough rest and not eating properly before game and had to eat popcorn from concession stand. Hope he gets that down.

    • KHuang

      Dehydration?

      So THAT’S why Cody Zeller has been playing SO SOFT.

    • Spot

      I think he gave Clifford some advices in general, not just for this game.

      Oh well, probably he saved a couple for this game too 😀

    • Spot

      He played so soft that he looked like Al Jefferson on defence 😀

    • KHuang

      The soft wimpy way Lin’s teammates are playing, maybe they’re dehydrated too.

    • Spot

      Yep, probably 🙂

      Jeremy should get them some Gatorade 🙂

    • MoominFloren

      Good morning / evening, Lin fans.
      What is the starting lineup? Still go with Hairston?

    • yes, Hairston is starting again today as expected
      He’ll probably wait up to Game 8-10 before making any changes.

      https://twitter.com/AdiJoseph/status/661683806173138944

    • CJSHYY

      This is so weird bc they don’t like you but you still start for the team?!

    • Getting physical means .. a Psycho T debut?
      https://twitter.com/hornets/status/661681782811586560

    • MoominFloren

      Huh? Don’t know if this is a motivation or demotivation…
      Let’s see if Lamb get more minutes tonight.

    • perhaps last chance for Hairston to prove himself

    • Spot

      Same lineup, same result.

      Probably Clifford likes Japanese culture. Cause to me he’s doing Harakiri.

    • blubell

      Psycho Linsanity!

    • orLinaryjoe

      x7

    • Spot

      As long as Clifford sits on the bench, Hairston will start.

      In his mind he’s the defensive winger who lock the defence.

      Lamb and Lin are 2 nice puppets who can score against weaker opponents.

      That’s Clifford.

    • Spot

      Don’t count on it. Getting physical means being nasty. That’s it. Old school coach who still wants ILLEGAL DEFENCE like KHuang would say.

    • blubell
    • blubell
    • Spot

      Not wise to me. It’s just the beginning of the season.

      Charlotte is already in panic mode if they rush players back on court when they’re not healthy.

    • blubell
    • Spot

      Lin and Lamb close.

      Al and Kemba look like they’re the boss

    • Tommy

      Cho and Clifford not on the same page
      Perhaps my man Cho is not pleased Hairston starting over Lin/Lamb

    • JW

      Cho said he had talked to him and his agent. At least there were communication. They probably tell him that he really needs to shape up and prove himself.

      At least that’s better than FO at LAL.

    • Spot

      Exactly. That’s what I think too.

      That’s why if Clifford keep losing game Cho will change coach.

    • JW
    • spiderman

      digging themselves into a hole

    • zxcvb

      Same lineup? 0-4 coming.

      If Lin plays ~27mpg, I want to see at least 12 FGA from Lin (unless he’s getting to the line a ton).

    • KHuang

      0-4 for sure.

      But if Lin plays at his customary level during the minutes he receives, Lin will probably be a + player with solid overall stats.

      All Lin can do is win in the minutes he gets. And even in LA, Lin more than did that.

    • zxcvb

      I’d take a repeat of the Miami game. In fact, I don’t think a win would even be good for the team. It would just encourage Clifford to keep the same lineup. At least after last game, he said a “7 or 8 game” sample size is necessary.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Nobody but MJ dare to do it because if the next one comes in and doesn’t make any difference, whoever makes such decision will be on very hot seat.

    • spiderman

      Waiting 7 or 8 games. Doesn’t seem like coach eager to keep his job

    • blubell
    • wu kong

      I sure hope this is not a power play/drama between coach and FO. but honestly what else could it be.??.. what a mess. 🙁

    • KHuang

      It’s not weird.

      PJ Hairston still can be signed this summer.

      The Hornets are hoping for him to really step up.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Hairston’s got the rest of this season as an audition for all NBA teams. Consider it’s a blessing that he is starting for the Hornets. His stack is on the rise and he himself is responsible for his future alone.

    • Alain Gervais

      I think they win.

    • 林帆

      小林,加油!

    • wu kong

      I guess they could just be trying to use tough love with him… force him to prove himself… hmm I like this better than FO/Coach drama. so i am going to believe this is the case.

    • KHuang

      If Lin played “Miami games” for the rest of his career, I’d be perfectly happy with his game!

    • KHuang

      PJ Hairston’s stock is ARTIFICIALLY on the rise, yes.

    • microserf

      Hi guys, newbie here.

      http://www.nba.com/hornets/live-hive-11/03/15 they interviewed JLin at the 17:00 mark

    • Michael

      Hairston looks a little dejected wonder why..

    • John Focker

      7 or 8 games…because at the end of the stretch they’d be playing NYK and T-Wolves.

    • Michael

      That doesn’t even rhyme.

    • 林帆

      书豪, 不要太犹豫,更不要太谦虚。 你比罗斯强多了。球场属于你!

    • Spot

      Cho brought in guys who can play fast and hit 3s.

      Clifford is playing exactly the last year’s lineup with Batum in the place of Stephenson.

      The same lineup who was horrible last year.

      I don’t think they have same visione of the team right now.

      If I am Cho and I could be without a team if they don’t extend my contract, I’d go down my way.

    • John Focker

      Welcome to the most positive, civilized Jeremy Lin forum!

    • Alain Gervais

      Team looks good

    • Spot

      Good sign to me. If Clifford doesn’t win… Bye bye

    • John Focker

      “Cho brought in guys who can play fast and hit 3s.
      Clifford is playing exactly the last year’s lineup with Batum in the place of Stephenson.”

      Yeah, the problem is that they didn’t get rid of the guys who cannot play fast or hit 3s.

    • Spot

      With Zeller who can barely play and Noah with second unit and no offensive schemes by Clifford Jeremy should have a glorious night to make an impact.

    • Spot

      It’s up to Clifford. He wants defence.

      Cho wants attack.

      This lineup is pretty bad. But roster is good and deep. They only need a good coach who can play with a double playmaker.

    • starters playing well.. good spacing & open looks
      just few defensive holes

    • Alain Gervais

      17 Hornet 9 Bulls

    • microserf

      Thanks, John! Like you guys, am hoping JLin and the Hornets play great against the Bulls.

    • sws94

      Team looks really good right now. Nice ball movement, crisp and organized.

    • Alain Gervais

      Bulls trading like atlanta but we are ready this time

    • Alain Gervais

      trapping

    • 17-9 Hornets starters play well

      Great looks & penetration

      Defense is surprisingly matching up well.

    • Alain Gervais

      Trap defense not working Bull doing the same defense as Atlanta

    • I think Thibs needs to get a big Christmas gift from Clifford with his 37 suggestions LOL

    • blubell

      Rhyming is overrated.

    • JLin Fan from Australia

      Welcome!

    • heart

      More flow; ball not stagnant so far.

      If you can write in English is better 🙂

      Even I find difficult sometime to write in English cause I’m Italian 😀

    • Alain Gervais

      no thats not him lol they look the same …..Zeller

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin about to check in

    • Joe what do you know

      Zeller looked like he’s not mentally there. Moved a bit funny too

    • Dorothy

      Lam in , no Lin

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin stood and sat back down. Lamb in

    • Michael

      No look bench.

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin in now

    • Dorothy

      Lin in now

    • Joe what do you know

      Are we watching the same game?

    • John Focker

      Looks like Lamb in for Hairston, maybe Lin to back up Walker/Batum.

    • Michael

      歡迎..you.

    • zxcvb

      Bulls announcers praising Lin.

    • heart

      Notice, one thing Batum knows how to get a Haden’s foul-> throws his hands up in the air.

    • blubell

      Looks like you’re cursing. BANNED! LOL.

    • Michael

      Michael Jordan just checked in.

    • Briiick

      Announcers are mouthpieces of the top brains, Bulls indeed are interested in Lin.

    • Alain Gervais

      He kinda looks like Zeller lol

    • spiderman

      Lock in the lead — bring in Hansbrough and Kaminsky

    • welcome 🙂 .. Let’s hope for a Linning performance tonight!

    • Alain Gervais

      They would definitely be better with lin instead of brooks. That goes unsaid

    • Michael

      Does that mean the Hawks hate Lin? Cause Dominique …..

    • Michael

      Notice how Lin runs to save Batum when he picks up the ball.

    • Dan Cohen

      why didn’t lin moved.. batum had to hand out the ball to signal him…smh.

    • zxcvb

      Team looks sharper today. They’re moving well and playing together.

      Maybe they win this after all…

    • Lin drived & got fouled. 2 FTs!

    • zxcvb

      Lin attacks fearlessly! GOOD.

    • blubell

      Freeebieees!

    • Briiick

      Good, allow me to turn on the TV.

    • Alain Gervais

      assist

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      It ppours on the Bulls.

    • Pete Roces

      league pass down?

    • zxcvb

      Now THIS is more like it! They look like the Preseason Hornets.

    • blubell

      When will we see Playoffs Hornets?

    • Dan Cohen

      so..if a playe inbounds the ball and another player shoots it in..does that count as an assist?

    • MoominFloren

      Me too … Still stiluck in 2:35

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin with 2 early assist

    • Michael

      I see the similarities.

    • zxcvb

      Gotta start Lin for that.

    • Dan Cohen

      was the inbound counted as an assist?

    • Michael

      In 2K16

    • Alain Gervais

      Lol its not because they’re are both white

    • JW

      Batum asking for the last possession shot control. should’ve let Lin push it.

    • Alain Gervais

      Yep

    • Riddick

      Lin giving the ball to Batum to bring it up is complete BS!

    • Hornets leads 37-20 after Q1.

      It’s impressive. Thibs must’ve given a lot of useful 37 suggestions

    • zxcvb

      I don’t mind. Don’t need Lin taking a low% shot with almost no time left.

    • Joe what do you know

      Hawes’ tache…. The guy’s still livin’ the 70s….

    • NONONO

      everyone in Hornets got +, wow

    • Dan Cohen

      batum is sg and lin is I don’t know pg sg sf cg?

    • CJSHYY

      Do you think they play more like preseason game tonight?

    • blubell

      Even Zeller? LOL.

    • zxcvb

      Alright, now Lin has to shoot.

    • JLin with 2pts/2asts/1reb in 3 min after Q1

    • sws94

      Yes. I think the defenses of Miami/Atlanta took some of what they want to do away.

    • Riddick

      Batum is now haren on this team. smh

    • NONONO

      Brooks no chance to defend and score on Lin

    • zxcvb

      Good aggression by Lin…possible foul. Missed shot, but he didn’t hesitate.

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin 3 assist

    • Tommy

      No plays called for Lin
      No screens set for Lin
      yepp Clifford is a great coach for Lin…

    • Joe what do you know

      Thank you Cody for giving Lin another AST!!

    • John Focker

      Jeremy in PG mode with Walker and Batum both off the court. 3 asts already (team high so far).

    • Alain Gervais

      Relax

    • John Focker

      At least he’s not making Lamb the playmaker when Walker and Batum are off the court.

    • blubell

      Glad Zeller is doing well.

    • Tommy

      I am relaxed
      but Lin isnt an important player on that team
      people need to stop praising clifford lol

    • Alain Gervais

      3 assist

    • Tommy

      lucky

    • Joe what do you know

      Oh heck!! I see bloody spilling out from Cody’s face like the Old Faithful…

    • zxcvb

      Marvin missed Lin for the easy layup.

    • Michael

      Zeller was hit on the forehead or nose when Noah’s elbow came down. = =

    • NONONO

      Bulls really needs Lin. They cannot on Rose

    • zxcvb

      3 FTs?

    • Alain Gervais

      nope

    • Michael

      The masked rose.

    • Rick Johnson

      Hawes too slow. Bumble the ball

    • Rick Johnson

      Lamb enjoying his new contract.

    • zxcvb

      Great basketball today. We obviously want Lin to shoot more, but guys are wide-open and knocking shots down.

    • wow.. this is a Bulls slaughter

      50-29 with still 8min left in Q2

    • sws94

      Hawes doesn’t react quick enough to getting the ball from Lin.

    • Alain Gervais

      He is hot and cold. the game pace is really helping him today.

    • orLinaryjoe

      Hawes having a good shooting day.

    • spiderman

      he needs to play

      Wow Hornets up by 21 points and Lin barely played and it’s only 2nd quarter?!

    • Tommy

      Lamb iso all the way

    • Lintolerable Cruelty lol

    • orLinaryjoe

      Jlinporter steaks!

    • Bearness

      Hot shooting. Won’t last all game.

    • sws94

      Lin has done some things that aren’t on the scoreboard. I think he got a block on that shot. He ran a ball down. He saved a ball. He’s getting to the line. He’s doing fine. The team looks like a team and that’s great.

    • JJ Hui

      Yeah, wait till the defend set and that is too slow!

    • Joe what do you know

      That’s it. Hawes was so bad the past 3 games because he had the wrong facial hair design!! The mastache give him magic power!!

    • sport

      Miles better than last game.

      3333

    • Lin for 33333333333333!!!!!

    • Promo Sports World

      If the game ended now I would say great bounce back

    • zxcvb

      Lin’s defense has been elite too.

    • John Focker

      Lin catches up to his stats in last game (21 min PT) in just over 8 min!

    • blubell

      and for the win hopefully 🙂

    • JJ Hui

      Yay! 3333!!!!

    • zxcvb

      I even love that MISS from Lin. Aggressive midrange J.

    • zxcvb

      Ball movement is great today. No ego, all unselfish.

    • Bearness

      For sure.

    • Rick Johnson

      Yeah Kaminsky. Play him more.

    • Pete Roces

      international league pass still down, can’t even load the page

    • JJ Hui

      So fun to watch Kam 333333!

    • Ulysses Modder

      Lin and his 3 open

    • sport

      Don’t mind if they start Kaminsky can definitely spread the floor with his 3s.

    • Dan Cohen

      lin has a bad habit
      he helps too much AND leave his man WIDE open..
      I do not see a reason why he has to leave his man there when NO ONE else was adjacent to cover mcdermot.

    • Joe what do you know

      I’m watching on Apple TV with international LP…

    • spiderman

      hansbrough hansbrough hansbrough

    • JJ Hui

      I hope CC let Tyler have some fun to lift his spirit! It is no fun sitting on the bench and dont touch the floor!

    • sws94

      I agree. It looks like sometimes he positions for rebound. That 3 should have been contested better and maybe Cliff saw that and will remind Lin to stay home on 3 point shooters.

    • Lin domination in Q4?

      Stats-padding is welcome 🙂

    • takemeback2reaganyears

      he might have intercepted that pass had he….

    • zxcvb

      Sort of agree but it’s worked more than it’s hurt. Got burned once. Made an amazing stop 3 times already.

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin sits

    • zxcvb

      Played 11 straight minutes. No prob. Also, for selfish reasons, it’s good Lin sits during a likely Bulls run.

    • Joe what do you know

      If the help defence is for an inside layup, I’d go help out as well cos layup is of a higher percentage. Choose the lesser of the 2 evils is the principle to defence.

    • Alain Gervais

      yea cant run him down

    • John Focker

      Hairston beasting it today after team declined his option. The conspiracy theory about him stinking up to force team to decline option may hold a few drops of water. Now beasting it for new offers.

    • CJSHYY

      I think he’s done for 1st half.

    • Tommy

      Clifford is strange he doesnt let Lamb or Hairston play extended mins even when they are playing very well

    • Great to see smiles from all Hornets 🙂

    • zxcvb

      I think he’s just lazy — that’s been the knock on him throughout his career. Doesn’t get in shape, doesn’t watch film. Doesn’t go to all practices.

    • Alain Gervais

      Who did Lin block??

    • Tommy

      but still starts over more talented Lamb

    • blubell

      Nice to see the points are distributed evenly.

    • KHuang

      What the heck???

      Chicago’s the team that’s supposed to be up by nearly 30, not Charlotte!!

    • zxcvb

      Moore. By “overhhelping” he got a block from behind.

    • Joe what do you know

      Nah~~~ still not buying that theory. He just got lucky today. The whole team is lighting it up in fact…

    • Alain Gervais

      Unless thing go really bad You will likely get same minutes every game

    • Alain Gervais

      Thx

    • John Focker

      Sir, here’s your serving of crow stew… 😉

    • zxcvb

      *shrugs* draft picks always get priority. Makes MJ look good if he succeeds.

    • LW

      Good to see Cody back on court. At first I thought he might have a serious broken nose!

    • heart

      Want Hornets to win, but it Seems like Bulls is not adjusting. We’ll see if they do after the half.

    • zxcvb

      I’ll have a double.

    • Briiick

      Coach must have visited here and picked up some ideas, LOL.

    • grover chang

      Hornets winning. How is Lin playing. Is he playing aggressive?

    • John Focker

      Batum’s shot is really off today. Hopefully that’ll translate into more minutes for Jeremy.

    • zxcvb

      Yes! Taken 5 shots (3 FGA and 2 FT trips), including a midrange J.

      3 dimes, should have 4. Other guys are hot. 7p/3a/0to/+13 in 11m .

    • Alain Gervais

      Refs helping Bulls

    • sport

      Hitting shots today and still playing as SG.

    • Joe what do you know

      When he was hit in the first quarter the amount of blood spilling out made me think I was watching someone playing Mortal Kombat…

      He’s been off like all season I think.

    • DaBoss

      Thank you Thibs and JVG!!

    • Tommy

      that was Mirotic’s assists was given to Snell
      How do I report

    • Briiick

      Opponents now know he is the new ball handler and will game plan him.

    • occupatio

      i wonder if lin got pulled cuz he left his man in corner for open 3. or it was just regular rotations.

    • Riddick

      I like the Bull’s announcers. They’re fair in their analysis….no matter which team.

    • Michael

      Which character?

    • Job713

      Brooksanity!

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      69 points in the first half! That’s unbelievable. The kind of firepower from overall.

    • zxcvb

      That’s on Kemba. A little too pleased with himself after that nice drive, forgot to cover AB.

    • zxcvb

      Against a good defense too. Ball movement and everyone sharing.

    • John Focker

      Johnny Cage, most likely.

    • Job713

      Hope the hot shooting doesn’t cool down in the 2nd half.

    • occupatio

      lamb has been super hot, but many of those shots seem ill advised. contested and difficult, and early in clock.

    • Alain Gervais
    • yes, aggressive cut to get 1st 2 FTs
      smartly baiting Taj Gibson to foul him on perimeter
      Then take a huge 3 off a screen

      finding open shooters.

      everyone playing very well today. Great spacing & wide-open shots

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Spencer Hawes come back with a very good game.

    • John Focker

      Yeah…Clifford, please chew him out on that one.

    • zxcvb

      7p for Lin in 11m first half.

      Hoping for 10p for Lin in a 12-14m 2nd half (which he usually plays more).

    • Tommy

      i always consider those assists lucky

    • Joe what do you know

      It’s his mastache!!!

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Kaminsky has taken full advantage of his 3 point shooting.

    • Tommy

      good do it

    • GoodDayLA

      not if its a blowout. Then Brian Roberts and others come in.

    • blubell

      nom nom nom…

    • zxcvb

      Lin might get to stat pad with Roberts. Organize the youngsters like preseason.

    • sws94

      Rose is a shell of himself.

    • heart

      He’s pretty confident at it. Good for him.

    • MomentousPetey

      Golden State Warriors of the East….

    • GoodDayLA

      he shoots the long ball better than Lin and PJ and Lamb

    • spiderman

      will need hansbrough soon to close it out

    • Job713

      Lin should learn some footwork and ball handling from this Street Beats crew.

    • GoodDayLA

      no not quite

    • Alain Gervais

      He will never be what he used to be….but i don’t think the bulls will lay down

    • 1 playmaker has to be there not to blow leads.
      Lin/Roberts would be welcome.

      Clifford might reward Lin with Stat-padding to get his shots back

    • sws94

      I doubt Lin plays in garbage time. Roberts will, probably Hansbrough and others, none of the main guys.

    • John Focker

      Could he be…the new Novak? Does have better dance moves.

    • MomentousPetey

      I know, I meant it as an expression…=)

    • occupatio

      11 min so far. would need to play continuously from midway through 3rd quarter to end to make ~30 min. assuming its not blowout.

    • zxcvb

      In Boston, Stevens lets IT statpad in blowouts…a bit of a concession for the 6th man “forced” to come off the bench.

    • Michael

      Newvak.

    • Dan Cohen

      hhahaha you mean tom thiboeau.. …
      he must have told clifford something about the bulls and their weaknesses..haahhaah
      thus the 37 suggestions.

    • yes .. if it’s 20+pts with 4 min left, it should be stat-pad time

    • Job713

      Steph Curry is not the back up PG.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      The bench has scored much better than in the last game in the first half. They scored 31 points in the first half. Last game they scored only 27 points for the whole game.

    • sws94

      He worked with the professor.

    • MomentousPetey

      The chick is smokin hot too…

    • Parent of an 8th Grader

      Was looking for a redemptive game tonight after the tough losses – this one is too lopsided to be satisfactorily redemptive. I want a nail-biter in which JLin shines and rises to the occasion. Yes, I want to see JLin be the game changer. Let’s see how the second half goes . . .

    • blubell

      Nooooo… vak

    • Dan Cohen

      guess the 37 suggestions from tom thibeau helps.. 35 of them was about bulls weaknesses and the players tendencies!!! LMAOSMH

    • zxcvb

      Insider trading.

    • MomentousPetey

      TRUE =)

    • Job713

      The professor can’t drum like this.

    • it’s okay .. tonight they need a W and JLin to get his shots back + some stat-pad

      one game at a time

    • CJSHYY

      I think more like revenge from Thibeau…. LOL!

    • sws94

      I don’t think Charlotte will take their foot off of the gas. Chicago may cut the lead but they are too far behind and Charlotte wants their first win. Plus, their home. I really think they have this one.

    • linfan

      Hope the momentum does not turn in the second half

    • 8/10 3PT shooting is something else

      no pressure shooting is the best

    • MomentousPetey

      That tap dancing chick is bae af!!! =)

    • Tommy

      Lin is not the primary scorer for the 2nd unit thats for sure
      hes just the guy that brings the ball up and passes it to someone
      no plays called for him no screens

    • sweet revenge dish is served by Thibs lol

    • GoodDayLA

      He’s doing a Lin to all the potential guys who can break out.

    • Parent of an 8th Grader

      I know. It’s hard – the life of a fan. So much speculation. So much hoping. No control. I gotta get another hobby.

    • blubell

      thats cold… lol

    • Job713

      Even that, he doesn’t bring up the ball. Watching Hawes dribble up the court makes me think that “everyone is the PG.”

    • Michael

      Bulls will warm it up.

    • Michael

      Rock collecting?

    • Singapore BB Fan

      Come to think about it…if Tom is able to reveal Bulls weaknesses..why didn’t he fix them while he was with them?

    • sws94

      Why does he have to be the primary scorer? He’s a slasher and facilitates or co-facilitates depending on who is on with him. In some games, he’ll be hot, and he’ll be one of the big scorers. In the first unit, Kemba wasn’t the primary scorer. There was no primary scorer. Everyone was touching the ball and scoring. A team where everyone is involved is a happy team.

    • Joe what do you know

      Could probably do with a better outfit than that… The girl herself is nice

    • I think he got a screen for the big 3

      As a playmaker, he’s doing well finding open shooters
      Highest assist at 3 at one point

    • orLinaryjoe

      No stress there

    • Tommy

      yep thats why clifford is not top notch

    • heart

      It has been said by Hornets announcer, Stephanie, in previous games that this season Clifford’s offense allows anyone can bring up the ball.

    • sport

      Doesn’t matter so long as Lin is looking to score, they want him to play SG more than PG for this team.

    • GoodDayLA

      u said he was an average joe. that’s what they do. Like Steve Blake

    • sws94

      I’d rather guards do it, not Hawes. He got away with it this time but I hope he doesn’t do it often.

    • yes, that’s the goal for this team.

      Selfless scoring. No Kobe mode here

    • grover chang

      Are he hornets playing better defense? Wow.

    • zxcvb

      He’s gotten 5 good shots already in 11m. 3 FGA and 2 FT trips.

      Teamball tonight because everyone is hot. 1 game sample size is weak.

      Even Kemba only has 7 shots (FGA + 0 FT) in 16m.

    • Parent of an 8th Grader

      I don’t know what web sites I would default to once JLin retires. Perhaps he’ll become an NBA or a college coach and I’ll follow those games.

    • Tommy

      meh im not a fan of the team

    • Briiick

      He couldn’t, just as Hornets can’t bench Walker.

    • there as a glitch in the beginning but other than that they didn’t allow wide-open shots for most time

    • Tommy

      pretty sure clifford said he only wanted ball handlers to bring up the ball…

    • sws94

      I don’t think it is that cut and dry. They want him to use his skills and one of them is creating for himself and his team mates. Does it matter that much whether he is called SG, PG or combo guard?

    • GoodDayLA

      doesn’t work in close games. But that’s usually when Lin somehow comes through.

    • Michael

      you mean orlinaryJoe.

    • Sundown

      With a good points-to-shots ratio as well.

    • CJSHYY

      More team ball & like preseason game?

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      That should definitely by avoided.

    • heart

      Me too. But that’s what has been said, so any players know that they’re allowed to. That’s why you don’t see lots of fast breaks passing.

    • Job713

      Watched Jlin hit 4/5 3-pt in shoot around.

    • Tommy

      yep avergae joe makes pretty good back up
      so he should be allowed to do more

    • Tommy

      5 good shots?

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      The Bulls aren’t bad.
      They played a good game shooting @58% and 50% from the arc. They just turned the ball over 8 times 6 more than the Hornets. Normally the bulls would be leading in the first half. but the Hornets shot 58% too but 80% 3P%!

    • Sundown

      Wow you can hear everything Clifford says.

    • Tommy

      hes not scoring thou

    • Tommy

      hes a score fisr guard imo

    • zxcvb

      Open shots. Clear lane and/or off a set play.

    • Tommy

      exactly

    • GoodDayLA

      at least the hornets coaches have temporarily fixed whatever was wrong before. The bulls look like garbage though. Maybe its Charlotte making them look like garbage.

    • GoodDayLA

      there is like no defense by the bulls. so odd. no thibs.

    • Alain Gervais

      Crazy stat= 20 assist 2 TOV

    • zxcvb

      Rose playing with one good eye…big mistake to rely on him so much. Always some kind of injury with him.

    • Sundown

      Probably the bulls are having an off night on the road after a good start but still the Hornets got to take advantage of that and finish them off with conviction.

    • Briiick

      How about his two legs and another eye ?

    • sws94

      Lin is a team player. If you aren’t a fan of the team and just want Lin to do well, then you’ll only like the games he is a big scorer.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Balanced scoring from the Hornets. No one is specially hot. The Hornets are all hot.

    • zxcvb

      Questionable.

    • blubell

      I don’t know any fire breathing Bulls…

    • Job713

      Lin needs to stat pad during garbage time.

    • golfhacker

      Well, Jeremy may get to stat pad tonight.

    • zxcvb

      Okay, Big Al, I see you. But unless he’s this good every game, his style is just a net negative for the team.

      Maybe this is Morey-style tactics. Pump up a guy’s stats early on and then TRADE him.

    • zxcvb

      That would be a nice reward for all his teamball.

    • Rick Johnson

      JLin did a better job guarding Butler in the preseason than Hairston.

    • blubell

      Kemba and Lin combined for 3 blocks.

    • orLinaryjoe

      Al has 1

    • zxcvb

      Walker is really unselfish this season…I guess he really does want to win.

    • JJ Hui

      Pls give Tyler Hansborough playing time, i really pity him!

    • Riddick

      No idea why Cliff doesn’t give him/others a chance. He doesn’t seem to do well w/change.

    • Alain Gervais

      Cliff is set on who play and how many minutes

    • zxcvb

      That TO by Batum was on Big Al. Terrible screen, made it easy to trap Nic.

    • LAJane

      I still don’t understand the insistence on Jefferson. Yes he’s got things to bring, but I see him get the ball under the basket and time after time he just gets bull-headed about having his way, even when he’s obviously overwhelmingly swarmed. Then he either gets stripped, throws up a hopeless prayer that doesn’t fall, or has to try desperately to find an outlet through the waving arms and legs around him. His flexibility and IQ just don’t seem to be what they need to be.

    • Alain Gervais
    • Riddick

      Ya, has no idea how or doesn’t like change.

    • zxcvb

      I hear “Pull over! Pull over!” 10X per game.

    • sws94

      He has a nice touch and some decent moves but everything is slow to develop. It stops the ball movement.

    • Briiick

      Batum shot like last season’s Walker in terms of %, price to pay for being a ball handling SF I guess.

    • Parent of an 8th Grader

      what does that mean?

    • David Kim

      I just want Lin get more playing times..

    • Alain Gervais

      He clearly don’t fit the future of the team. I don’t know what happen to him next year

    • John Focker

      Leading disappearing fast…good thing Clifford called timeout.

    • Riddick

      It’s already obvious that this team is ALL about Batum/Walker.

    • Sundown

      You can really hear everything – “under, under!” “no foul!”, “go-go-go”. Great to know what he’s thinking/saying.

    • John Focker

      And Al. Kemba/Batum/Al.

    • Riddick

      No surprise here. First lineup on floor too long.

    • zxcvb

      PnR defense where he wants his big man to switch onto the guard to prevent penetration. “Pulling over” to that side of the floor.

    • Joe what do you know

      That means you’ll get asked for your licence and registration very soon….

    • GoodDayLA

      So now they are coming together. THey’d struggle first 5 games and then win 80% in a row I assumed for first 20-30 games and then revert down a little bit once there was game film on them post all star break.

      Lin’s going to be a low usage glue guy for the 2nd team in part because teams are gunning for him off the bench so the scoring will be spread out to others. He might not get much in good stats, but I think the team will appreciate his sacrifice. And who knows if he re-signs or opts out if he averages 8-11PPG, 2 rbd, 4 asst for the year.

      I don’t think any other team will want him in the summer even if CLT makes the ECF but that’s ok. Not to start of be a core guy that’s for sure. But I guess he can finally feel part of a team where he is accepted. I think that’s more important for him than being a star.

      I do think these guys do accept Lin for what he is so good for Lin. He does not play or live for any of us.

      Glad for Lin, not so much his hardcore Lin fans like me who want him to be a team star guard and get 17, 7, and 5 every game.

    • Briiick

      Good, I don’t want garbage time to further shorten Lin’s PT.

    • Riddick

      I try to forget Al. lol

    • Parent of an 8th Grader

      Ah, thank you.

    • JJ Hui

      I say he is old school and so boring to watch!

    • LAJane

      I really liked his veteran stability and great personality in the preseason, and really want to wish him the best…..but…..

    • blubell

      and step out of the vehicle?

    • Dorothy

      Lin is waiting to come in

    • sport

      Wrong, Lin’s goal in the NBA is to be an All-Star and than Championship!

    • Alain Gervais

      18 point game

    • Joe what do you know

      Man Kemba can really break some ankles

    • Dorothy

      Lin in

    • GoodDayLA

      don’t ask questions that make sense 🙂 ON another note, I’m disappointed by Lin’s role on this team but it is what it is. I think Lin isn’t going to get what he bargained for by signing with Charlotte. I think the team will do well but us Lin fans are in for a tough pill to swallow.

    • Michael

      into a puddle.

    • blubell

      Splash!

    • GoJLin!

      Even if Lin close the game, he only play 24 minutes:(

    • GoodDayLA

      I think everyone sees Lin is just a low usage decoy. I’m still struggling to come to terms. But I also understand this was probably Lin’s last shot in the NBA.

      Khuang was not that far off in that almost no team wanted Lin. I do agree with that as well.

      Team success as a low usage bench guy will not salvage Lin’s career but it may give him the mental release he has been looking for over the past 6 seasons.

      Lin to Brooks: “I love you man…you’re a great guy…but I got to BALL this season.”

    • Briiick

      BOOYAH!

    • sport

      Lin eating Brooks for breakfast, big advantage is sweet. 😀

    • zxcvb

      He’ll play more once he finds his rhythm. He played 27 in the first two games. Would have played 30 in the 1st game (w/o Lamb)

    • Singapore BB Fan

      Crazy…3pointer!

    • GoodDayLA

      LOL I am not even excited. But I am happy for Lin he has found a team that accepts him.

      Holberg is a clown for using small Brooks to cover Lin. What a moron of of a coach. Classic fail putting small guys on Lin. Lin will go off.

    • orLinaryjoe

      Lin!!!!

    • I am The Jason

      Lin went to the bank with that 3

    • BobbyH

      Is that an intended pt bank shot? If so, this is a very good shot.

    • blubell

      5 points in less than 2 minutes?

    • your son’s voltaire

    • Alain Gervais

      12 points 12 minutes

    • GoodDayLA

      he won’t be an all star much less start again except for injury.

    • sport

      Shh….Let Lin get his stats. XD

    • zxcvb

      Good psychology by Clifford? “No more Mr. Nice Guy…you don’t shoot, you don’t play.”

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Unbelievable 94% at FT%

    • orLinaryjoe

      Who cares. It went Lin!

    • Briiick

      Deep dish pizza only.

    • zxcvb

      Lin looks so SWAGGY today. He’s confidently shooting (even in the 1st half) just like preseason.

    • Joe what do you know

      He’s already got 12pt. It says more to score big in little time than playing more time…

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      So far the Hornets win every quarter.
      The Bulls didn’t play bad. The Hornets are just superb!

    • LW

      It’s best to let Lin organize the last shot.

    • GoodDayLA

      lol. I love seeing small guys cover Lin. I KNOW Lin will go off. He will no be stopped at all.

    • “Lin, get to the rim like it’s your Lion King blanket” 🙂

    • zxcvb

      Zeller should have given it back to Lin earlier.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      55% FG 65% 3P 94% FT!!!!!

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      My wish is every Hornet players scored in double figures.

    • Joe what do you know

    • blubell

      Yay, I win! Everybody wins!

    • GoodDayLA

      what a dumb rookie coach. GUYS DONT fall for fools gold. Lin can cream small guards. this is not indicative of Lin versus real competition where a real coach puts a six foot 8 wing on Lin and traps.

    • orLinaryjoe

      Lin and 1

    • Alain Gervais

      Hornets look real deep lol

    • zxcvb

      Hawes is playing GREAT today. When he’s not lazy, he and Lin are an ideal duo.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      It left Zeller and Marvin Williams to score in double figure. Go Zeller, Marvin. You can do it.

    • 110-77 with 8 min left.

      I start to feel bad for the Bulls 🙂

    • Briiick

      OK it’s garbage time now, play the 1st unit!

    • Alain Gervais

      Everyone had a hand on today no 1 superstars

    • your son’s voltaire

      notice Clifford yelling GO GO GO on every offensive possession. he really wants the team to run

    • linfan

      Early garbage time?

    • zxcvb

      You’re right that Lin can’t beast like this against a top defensive coach.

      But if the Hornets share the ball like this, he can repeat his Heat performance (17p on 10 FGA).

    • sws94

      This is actually very pretty basketball the Hornets are playing.

    • LW

      Hornets are playing hard so the coach can allow Hansbrough in.

    • Hornets with 10-0 run in the 4th quarter!

    • LAJane

      LOL

    • sport

      Happy Lin playing with confidence but it’s shorty Aaron Brooks guarding him, he needs to play like that against other NBA players without the height advantage.

    • Sundown

      Great team play. With a group like this, the way they are going to win any number of games is by teamwork, which is looking good so far.

    • zxcvb

      It’s more about Charlotte’s improved ball movement, screens and cuts.

      Lin is playing OFF the ball more too. Can’t just trap him off PnRs.

    • sws94

      He has space. He can go one-on-one against tough defenders. It’s the traps that slow him down.

    • sws94

      He’s in motion this game more. He’s doing great.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Kaminsky needs 4 more points to be in double figures.

    • sport

      Hornets need to play like this every game with everyone scoring!

    • GoJLin!

      Go ahead to set up the regular season win scores record!

    • GoodDayLA

      impossible. everyone wishes. but not possible.

    • zxcvb

      Yes. Curry also plays a TON off the ball. The more Curry plays SG, the better he is.

    • sport

      Even Hawes making 3s wow.

    • Alain Gervais

      2 more point

    • Michael

      140 tonight?

    • zxcvb

      Hopefully, Lin can get to 20 before Cliff clears the bench.

    • zxcvb

      Confident midrange miss,

    • GoodDayLA

      best move of night is Lin step back Miss. FINALLY A REAL SHOT

    • LW

      Feel sorry for Aaron, Jeremy is owning him.

    • Sundown

      Tyler sighting!

    • Alain Gervais

      hanborough

      better line-ups today…
      coaches must really not like hansbrough

    • sport

      Finally Hansbrough is in!

    • Maknusia

      That will push him further to be an effective player…I dont mind, since he is in a good environment

    • Sundown

      Buckets for everybody!

    • Happy Birthday, Psycho T!!!!

    • I am The Jason

      Psycho T !!!

    • Rick Johnson

      Yessss, Handsbrough

    • GoodDayLA

      LAMb swag

    • Lam

      The three’s are falling. Its not going to happen every game.

    • spiderman

      lamb is on fire!

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin maybe done

    • LW

      The team says “this one is for you!”

    • zxcvb

      Great leadership by Lin.

      Tyler ruins Lin’s assist…Lin gives it right back to him.

    • GoodDayLA

      Hans borough would fit Lin good on this team. He is so not used to finishing anymore. Lin can do those dumps.

    • heart

      Just got back watching the game, what did Clifford say to Lin?

    • Briiick

      Psycho T looked to have good PnR chemistry with Lin !

    • Michael

      書豪我愛你…probably not.

    • blubell

      Jeremy is always patient with the Bigs.

    • sport

      Will Lin play the entire 4th quarter?

    • Rick Johnson

      Hope Lin makes Handbrough look good so coach will use him more. More of an inside presence than Hawes. Zeller & Hawes kind of redundant.

    • LOL .. Psycho T: “HAppy BDay to me! I got to play football too”
      Lowered his shoulder like a LB

    • It might look that way.. Clifford wants Lin/Lamb to get a lot of airtime

    • zxcvb

      I think he knows how awful it is when your teammates freeze you out for 1-2 mistakes.

    • orLinaryjoe

      psycho got 2 carried away

    • JLin Fan from Australia

      LOL

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      55% / 65% / 95% as a team; What more can you ask.

    • blubell

      Don’t make me ban you… lol… Share!

    • zxcvb

      Lin deserves to stat pad for the rest of the game. Or at least until he gets 20, ha.

    • JLin: “This is for KHuang!” lol

    • spiderman

      better line ups today!

    • Joe what do you know

      Psycho was nerves I bet… Lin made a nice dump to him, he’ll be grateful.

    • Briiick

      Psycho T is a beast. And Lin knows how to feed them !

    • Alain Gervais

      Lin done

    • Dorothy

      Lin out

    • Rick Johnson

      Lin out. No stat padding. Can’t let him have too good stats or won’t be able to afford him next year.

    • zxcvb

      No! Lin is out!

      On one hand, he’s being treated like a top player. On the other hand, he deserves to get 20 for his play.

    • spiderman

      coach has a blind spot

    • CJSHYY

      Today is big win game so it’s OK…

    • occupatio

      i remmeber khuang was trying to tell me hansbrough could finish around the rim. hah, it still hasnt happened. missed the bunny.

    • Alain Gervais

      19 minutes 15 points Just wow

    • Michael

      On the third hand no need to risk injuries. (waiting for the fourth hand )

    • oh well.. he’s a Top 6th Man/playmaker so no sense getting potential injuries

    • LAJane

      adrenaline

    • zxcvb

      Yeah, his PER for today is Linsane. 15p/5r/4a in 19 minutes!

    • Rick Johnson

      Lamb already signed his extension so they will let him stat pad.

    • blubell

      This is getting out of hand…

    • occupatio

      indeed

    • LW

      Clifford seems to use Lin differently. He sits him in long stretch then plays him in long stretch. May be he sees Lin is a rhythm guy.

    • LAJane

      Phooey. But yes. Let the back benchers finally get some PT.

    • linfan

      Lamb is all arms and legs

    • JLin Fan from Australia

      Good that everyone has the chance to play in this game:-)

    • Rick Johnson

      Rusty. First minutes he’s had all regular season.

    • Alain Gervais

      He is shooting ridiculous let him get experience because most days he won’t shoot like this.Lin should not be out there

    • zxcvb

      Alright, Hornets. Just keep sharing the ball. The shots won’t always fall like tonight, but just play the same way. Cut hard. Screen hard. Pass hard. Win big.

    • Rick Johnson

      Ya, long season. JLin has to stay healthy.

    • Briiick

      more than one.

    • Alain Gervais

      I heard Cliff yell at a soft screen that led to a turnover. He knows what the issue are

    • Joe what do you know

      Man… Imagine what could it have been if Houston didn’t make that stupid Harden trade and kept Lamb for development. He and Lin would’ve been leathal for a backcourt duo

    • Michael

      You mean like this?

    • JLin Fan from Australia

      Don’t dismiss him too quickly. This is his first few minutes. Allow to make some mistakes.

    • Maknusia

      He is a good coach…no mistake there…

    • JLin Fan from Australia

      Of course he is. I have better faith in him than many posters here:-)

    • Maknusia

      lol…and you need to bring Khuang in?

    • Alain Gervais
    • Alain Gervais
    • zxcvb

      Bulls announcer diss of Lin. “It’s one thing when Kemba Walker [gets layups], when Jeremy Lin does it, that’s a wake up call.” LOL. Beware the worst shooting starter in the league for the past 3 years! Lin is Mr. Efficiency even in HOU and LAL.

    • FreetheMind

      Psycho T is the best screen setter on this team. Too bad he does not play more.

    • sws94

      That’s stupid. Lin is the better driver and finisher of the two. And Kemba would even say so.

    • Alain Gervais

      The issue is he cant finish if you pass to him or at least that how it looked today

    • Rick Johnson

      Teams best rebounder too.

    • FreetheMind

      Lin only got 19 mins tonight. I guess team did not need him but Lin dropped in 15 smoothly in just 19 mins.

    • zxcvb

      Race, race, race…oy vey.

    • sport

      Bulls announcers are so bias. They were talking about Bull’s poor defense and said it’s one thing to see Walker getting to the rim but when you see Jeremy Lin doing it too, it’s a wake up call. Except Lin was no.2 to Lebron in points per shot at the rim 2 seasons ago and is miles better than Walker in shooting!

    • LAJane

      This is not the first, and it won’t be the last, STUPID, UNINFORMED yapping we’re gonna hear this season.

    • sws94

      But they don’t watch Lin. He made his name with his drives, not his jump shots.

    • Riddick

      Ya, heard that & thought I may have heard it wrong. But nope, not a game until there’s a negative comment about Lin. smh

    • FSW

      Lol

    • zxcvb

      That’s exactly what I mean by race. The evidence for a casual viewer is obvious but they just say that Lin “looks slow” compared to Kemba or whoever.

    • Maknusia

      definitely 130+

    • Sundown

      …or shoot without fouling.

    • zxcvb

      The praised Lin earlier…but I guess they got angry when Lin destroyed them again, ha.

    • Dan Cohen

      Bulls announcers stupid..
      there.. it’s simpler.

    • I am The Jason

      Now I see why Roberts is buried in the bench. Not looking for anyone

    • Riddick

      lol…soooo predictable..

    • LW

      Hornets get their 1st win of season! Hope they can now return to their pre-season form.

    • Rick Johnson

      Finally they call a foul for Handbrough. He gets hacked every offensive possession.

    • Alain Gervais

      why mention it.

    • orLinaryjoe
    • spiderman

      stoopid

    • orLinaryjoe
    • Alain Gervais

      Hanborough can’t finish or shoot which is why he doesn’t play. Took 2 assist from lin on one play lol

    • GoodDayLA

      who’s wasn’t tonight?

    • Tommy

      meh Lin cudnt drive and get past defenders when he played heat and hawks
      they are not wrong

    • zxcvb

      Lin needs to attack Felton and D-Will as much as possible next game.

      Dallas is well-coached, they can hang in there. But Lin should be able to score 20 in 25-28m if he’s aggressive.

    • Rick Johnson

      He should have just dunked that. He’s like point blank right there.

    • golfhacker

      He makes Omer Asik look athletic.

    • GoJLin!

      Good job! JLin 18:47 game time with 4-8 (2-2 for 3ptr), 5-5 FT, +21; 5R, 4A, 1PF, 1 TO, 1BS 🙂

    • Brian Roberts should be more classy not to shoot in last few seconds

    • Alain Gervais

      Idk if he got the hops

    • Maknusia

      yeah…the first couple of preseason game…if im not mistaken in Rox, they two was getting fine!

    • spiderman

      attack with an ax

    • GoodDayLA

      the only bearable part of watching these games is that they keep panning to Michael Jordan’s wife. I’ve seen Lin’s role barring injury. Beggars cannot be choosers.

    • Alain Gervais

      Exactly. very clunky

    • zxcvb

      He’ll find his rhythm with more minutes.

      KHuang has Tyler, but I have Greg Smith. I love Greg Smith…his hands, finishing and screens are ELITE. He just needs to stay healthy and get minutes.

    • Tommy

      mans out there fighting for his minutes lol

    • Joe what do you know

      It’s funny yet annoying to see the bench warmers being so trigger happy and missing most of the shots. Everyone wants to pad their stats but ending up padding their FGA only…

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      That’s not nice!

    • kittyhead

      Compared to Asik, who is better at finishing around the rim?lol

    • Michael

      He could do a slow blow by against them.

    • Dan Cohen

      ew

    • JJ Hui

      May be he sat too long on the bench!

    • Rick Johnson

      Maybe he needs to hit the weight room so he can bulk up and muscle through those bigs. He takes a lot of contact inside.

    • Michael

      Lol, not what you think.

    • Dan Cohen

      yeah, they are bull-sht

    • Alain Gervais

      Asik

    • JLin Fan from Australia
    • sport

      It’s obvious he’s anxious to show what he’s capable of after being benched for so long.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      How do you like an offense of 51%, 60%, 95%. The team plays like Steve Curry, LeBronz as a whole.

    • JLin Fan from Australia
    • LAJane

      For guys who mostly never see the light of day I think it’s less stat padding than just trying to get in the play. Anxious urgency is not the best food for excellence.

    • MorlockO

      wow awesome game from Lin, 15 pts, 4 ast, 5 reb, 1 blk in less then 19 mins !!!

    • JLin Fan from Australia
    • Sundown

      Lin tied for most rebounds.

    • blubell

      CHI radio interviewed Jeremy after the game and praised him. Best game as a Hornet.

    • JLin Fan from Australia
    • sport

      If only he had more playing time.

    • Dan Cohen

      but I thought they say sht about him..? so why they interviewing him!?

    • spiderman

      looks like a major gap in intelligence between CHI radio and TV commentators

    • JLin Fan from Australia

      It’s a blowout game. Don’t need to risk injury. Still have 78 more games to go. Enjoy the victory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Dan Cohen

      that. was. fast.

    • golfhacker

      Prob the TV guys saying sht, not radio guys.

    • blubell

      No Stacy king.

    • Dan Cohen

      or gap in prejudice

    • sport

      Yea, thought the bulls would put up a better fight oh well just hope the team continues to play like this throughout the season. Seems like on every team, Lin never gets 32 minutes as a starter.

    • cshot

      whatd i miss guys?! how did lin do today?

    • spiderman

      lol
      worst game ever

    • JLin Fan from Australia
    • Phillycheese

      He did good

    • Maknusia

      bad game for lin! 🙂 lol…..Best game for Hornets and everyone for the season

    • LW

      You missed everything!

    • Job713

      Why NBA promoting a bench player ??

    • BobbyH

      Is that official NBA tweet?

    • Rick Johnson

      Who was guarding him?

    • spiderman

      lamb was cooking!

    • FreetheMind

      Idiots. Kemba is good but Lin is the better finisher around the rim. This coming from someone who has watched both for years even before the NBA. NBA definitely finishes better than Kemba around the rim due to his size. Kemba is quick as h*** but Lin has more control when he attacks the basket.

      Like other posters here said, it is that same stereotype about Asians. America unfortunately is a cesspool for stereotypes and nothing will change as long as we got the same people running all the media in this country.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      1 on five! Speedy Jeremy!
      If you spread the court, Jeremy can blow past everyone. AB is eating dust.

    • Maknusia

      lol…any promotion is good,,,we need not nitpick…right 🙂

    • Joe what do you know

      They are 2 different type of penetrators. Lin is fast runner with explosive first step to blow by his defender when he sees the driving lane sudden open up due to player movements. He doesn’t force too much when it comes to drive-ins. Kemba is quick as well but he’s unique in which his mad handling and ability to change direction at ease can really break his defenders’ ankle and shake them off for him to drive in. But Kemba is more prone to force his way into the paint. Both are good drive-in guards. But the way Lin does it makes it easier for his ankle. Kemba will get some sort of ankle injury if he doesn’t have his daily fish oil…

    • Rick Johnson

      Batum was the highest scorer. But we know JLin broke the back of the Bulls, put the game away. Interesting the NBA making Lin the face of the franchise though.

    • sport

      For a big, Hawes is a great passer which we’ve seen during preseason. He just need to be more efficient with his scoring.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Five steps right?

    • The Internet will be broken if Hawes threw alley-oop to JLin lol

      That was sweet1

    • blubell

      Oops it was CHA radio.

    • cshot

      stop trolling hahhha yall had me scared at first

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Hairsanity!

    • sport

      Lin did complain about his dunking stats on nba2k

    • Sundown

      He’s good marketing. Playing fine but that story! That hair!

    • CJSHYY

      I think that must be from the team to NBA.

    • Singapore BB Fan

      watch Hawes reaction after Lin scored at 0.33 – he was like “Yes!!”

    • John Focker

      Maybe this constant and consistent promotion of Lin is what got Batum on alert…kind of how Melo felt upon returning after Linsanity.

    • KHuang

      In person yes, in the stats sheet no.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      51.6%
      60.9%
      95.7% as a team! This is definitely going to be a record of some sort.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      He just needs to cut down on his hesitation and just does it.

    • Steppen03

      HooWoo!!! x10….
      A Must Needed Victory for our Stingers. =). Now, Let’s grab 6-0 for the next six games !!!

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      The Hornets has scored over 30 points for every quarter!!!!
      The most at the first quarter while they’re mad. 37 points.

    • Kwok Wai Lai

      Lin always has good game against the Bulls.
