G42 LAL @ PHX Game Thread

This is the important game before Byron will talk about the possible change of lineup after 10-11 games.

How will Jeremy play tonight?

Let’s keep hoping, cheering and praying for JLinΒ to give his best no matter what the results will be!

Let’s leave it all out on the floor, Jeremy! No holding back! 😎

  • blubell

    Woohoo!
    Have fun, psalm!

  • thanks! But I need to do some craft adding typo to the check LOL

    Pray that Jeremy will play well today!

  • 1mtoldman

    another big game for the splash brothers. they put up 54 on wolverine/beard the other nite and have 40 tonite with a quarter and a third left in a blow out of denver.

    some guy who puts up a lot of interesting stats on another board notes that the warriors margin of victory is in the top ten of all time. and every team that has been in the top ten mov has gone to the finals and the only won that didn’t win was against another top ten team with a better margin.

    ive liked g.s. since preseason and i really think s.b. working together in fiba really was the start of increased success this year.

  • Alaingrvis

    they are amazing but i would take top defensive team vs a top offensive team any day.

  • deesee5

    Pray for his team mates too. If they cant make any of Jeremys passes then its going to look kind of ugly. #getassists #nobucketsnowin

  • 1mtoldman

    atlanta the defensive team from the low scoring east (best) and gs the offensive team from the high scoring west (best).

    but of course neither team is one dimensional; g.s. actually only gives up 3 more points per game than atl (atl gives the fewest points of any team in nba)–while atl is the second highest scoring team in the east.

  • 1mtoldman

    if the lakers continue to run their non-existent offense of bring the ball up throw it to a. nick young coming around the curl on the side or b. jordan hill at the top of the key and then no more passes it will be ugly regardless of who is playing.

    7 assists for lakers in their last game right? 30 for hawks today.

  • JoeTeam

    eh heh, anyone here like to make bets lol? good post.

  • Dorothy

    I am nervous for Lin since I don’t know what traps BS has there for Lin. Am I going nuts?

  • Brent Yen

    Yes, just calm down…. LOL just kidding…..but really, he will be fine

  • Dorothy

    I used to think Lin will be fine eventually, but after what BS has done to Lin over and over and over again, I just don’t know what to think now.

  • Brent Yen

    He is fine now…I think…

  • 1mtoldman

    maybe this is “reverse linginitis”–ask who is it? i dont know whoever gave the causes and symptoms of the affliction.

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol. Keep Calm and Jeremy Lin πŸ˜‰

  • Sophie Paris

    Yes if I win ^^

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    @psalm234:disqus Enjoy the game. Hope that JLin will play well in this game for you and everyone who goes to the game. Hope he will get a win for all JLin who supports him no matter what:-)

  • ViNuyork

    JLin has been smiling despite all the bs that BS had done for him….this kinda reminds me of his msg. in his fb page…wanna share it w/ u -might help w/ ur nervousness..hehe

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Believe JLin will play much better this game after getting more familiar with the teammates that he is going to play again tonight.

  • JoeTeam

    I think so too.

  • LAJane

    Not nuts, ’cause there’ve been plenty of traps. But Jeremy’s still smiling in spite of his obvious frustration, so he’s persistently turning toward the light and if he can, well my challenge is to do the same. I embarrass myself sometimes, ’cause he’s the one actually living the situation and handling it with amazing grace, while I’m getting all wound up and I’m only watching from my comfortable place in the far sidelines πŸ™‚

  • 1mtoldman

    the difference between mchale and bs; mchale used to throw lin under the bus after the game: bs throws lin under the bus before the game.

  • MoominFloren

    lol……sigh……

  • Rick Johnson
  • Rick Johnson
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    News organizations usually send out beautiful ladies to interview Lin.

  • Brent Yen

    Standing Ovation for NYK’s 6th win…..oh my…LAL really is a good team…

  • TTNN

    they really won? OMG, that’s funny. so they did kept the square trend alive!

    https://twitter.com/SBNationNBA/status/557300275036180482

  • chan c

    ha ha … against what team was that 6th win?

  • Brent Yen

    NOP? I did not pay attention

  • chan c

    I came from a week long vacation. I guess I missed a lot. I pray JLin will just go for it today.

    Go JLin!

  • Brent Yen

    Pau Gasol along is killing Bulls defense…haha…

  • TTNN

    interesting that Young said Lin helped him out recently, by dragging him to chapel , lol

  • 1mtoldman

    without holiday or davis.

  • Brent Yen

    “Take me to church” (on repeat)

  • Brent Yen

    Ok….w/o Holiday, good. W/O DAVIS, VERY BAD.

  • 1mtoldman

    bulls defense is not very good this year. actually bulls are not very good lately. rose is really fragile. and “inconsistent”.

    i still think it stems from when dunleavy went out; not that dunleavy was any good but it thru off the rotation.

    since then butlers not been as good. being shifted about.

    brooks actually often outplays rose as d. harris did tonite r. rondo.

  • Brent Yen

    I think in general, if your big is not good at help D, your team is gonna suck in D……regardless of how good your perimeter players’ D are..But that is just my opinion. Most coaches from 1st grade to NBA will tell you that Defense starts with your PG…which I find very…..illogical.

  • CJSHYY

    The shooting slump

  • TTNN

    that’s why Young break out of it.

    Nah, Young really like to crash into other people’s interview…..

  • Rick Johnson
  • Maknusia

    He will, since you are there!

  • Maknusia

    I dont think it means individually, but setting the tone, asking your players to move and switch. PG sees this better than other positions.

  • Maknusia

    Now we know, who was the culprit! LOL…just kidding, welcome back. Yeah Jeremy will have a good game today

  • Brent Yen

    Bayless is really under rated.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    For some might be too young to know, guess who was the president signed execute power to declare MLK the national holiday?

  • Rick Johnson

    I’m sure Nash doesn’t want to mentor PG’s in Scott’s antiquated system:

    https://twitter.com/MarkG_Medina/status/557352992924389376

  • chan c

    Ha ha … Thanks Mak πŸ™‚

  • Rick Johnson
  • jolno

    If the trend continues the Knicks won’t win more than 9 games LOL (9-81 is impossible). They need to finish 8-74 to be the worst team of all time, so 2-38 the rest of the way to break the record.

  • Brent Yen

    Where is @psalm234:disqus ?!

  • 1mtoldman

    i read it as scott was “stressed” about giving nash space.

  • JoeTeam

    check out James McAdoo, Bob’s son and former potential first draft. Telling how great it is that Lin is here at this moment. A lot to be thankful for. McAdoo lit up 13 mins for Warriors today, just trying him out. Wish I saw it, wondering if Livingston fed him. Doesn’t look like it, given low A on 2nd unit.

  • Brent Yen

    THat does not make sense. PG is in the front…most players are BEHIND him…..

  • Rick Johnson
  • 1mtoldman

    go to 7 and 49 then 8 and 64 to keep the square streak alive (highly possible) and then close out with a string of 10 loses and we have a loser (winner)!

  • Brent Yen

    So many players force themselves to go into that triple threat stance off a catch. Really a waste of opportunity…Kobe and Young are 2 examples.

  • 1mtoldman

    the two guys lin will be required to turn the ball over to for the rest of the possession once he crosses midcourt.

  • Maknusia

    Since they are looked at as Floor General, it only make sense that they see and direct the floor

  • Brent Yen

    On the offensive end yes. On the d end……it is PF and C’s job to BROADCAST

  • Rick Johnson
  • sws94

    I think LIn should change a few things as a Laker. 1. move off ball more, not try to be open for a catch and shoot and cut more. 2. start changing speeds more and look for his shot more, even if he can pass it sometimes to someone else especially because he needs to start getting foul shots more 3. on defense, be very careful not to over help, especially tonight with the good shooting Phoenix PGs. Another thing is not make unnecessary fouls on help trying to steal balls from big men.

  • 1mtoldman

    when did shooting in the nba get so bad? routinely both teams combined miss between 90 and 100 shots a game.

    the chicago bulls 2nite starting lineup 15 for 53 so far. 15 made 38 missed.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Where’s Joyce?

  • Jeremy just signed his own Big Check for the Jlin Foundation LOL

  • Brent Yen

    LOL…….I thought Q&A is after the game?

  • Brent Yen

    Why Joyce?

  • Philip

    More accurately, BS throws Lin under the bus before and after the game.

  • Chipdip

    Think pictures of them will be posted here? hehe..

  • Michael

    Where am I?

  • Michael

    May depend on which guard BS wants him to mentor πŸ˜›

  • TTNN

    great! Pic please!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Enjoy her input

  • Rick Johnson
  • Brent Yen

    Oh no….you are awake..

  • Jeremy pic while signing

  • JAD2456

    Where is KHuang?

  • Just before shootaround πŸ˜€

  • CJSHYY

    Even Clarkson has Nash’s phone number… Not Scott? LOL!

  • Brent Yen

    So you must be in that LAL official’s pic somewhere

  • CJSHYY

    Tell us more …

  • Sophie Paris

    I’m here… if it can help? xD

  • Wut? Just hanging with Jeremiah for 1 hr before he came out . He looks good and focused

  • Brent Yen
  • CJSHYY

    So no Q&A?

  • TTNN

    haha!

  • Maknusia

    PF and C are seen as the main defender but not a the director of defense.

  • Brent Yen

    WHich does not make sense. THose are the 2 players who most likely can see the whole half court.

  • Michael

    Don’t worry I have a gut feeling Lin is going to have a nice game (unless that was my ulcer)

  • Sophie Paris

    Is the answer in your name? πŸ˜‰

  • Maknusia

    PG are expected to be more intelligent and has a better court vision and game study πŸ™‚

  • jolno

    BS: Hey rook, tell Nash that I am still fine giving him space.
    Clarkson: Why don’t you tell him yourself?

  • Brent Yen

    LOL….oh well…..good luck with that..

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! Today is last day to vote for Lin in ASG. By tweet, FB & http://www.nba.com/allstar/

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Can’t believe the answer is from a lovely lady from French. LOL.

  • Dorothy

    Did he not take the check and you still have it?

  • Michael

    George Washington.

  • 1mtoldman

    can’t believe nobody answered that.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Whatever you do don’t ever try to be a comedian.

  • Charlie Sun

    Whatever happens this season or in future seasons, JLin has already won. He is in the record books. He is an international star. No amount of hate can shake his faith. I enjoy seeing every game he plays no matter how badly the coaches misuse him.

    … But he better score 30/20/10 =P

  • Lin looks very sharp in shootaround. Made 8-9 before 1st miss. Maybe missed 3-4 out of 20

  • Michael

    I have been staring at this reply for the last few minutes trying to think of an appropriate way to answer it, but troll as I am, I am rendered speechless by your kindness πŸ˜›

  • sport

    After last game, I’m not even sure I should was, 3 minutes until game time…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    LOL, good for you Michael.

  • Sophie Paris

    lol

  • sport

    That would be a Linsanity game if that happens!

  • Lin practicing pull up 3s and FTs now

  • Rick Johnson
  • Maknusia

    thanks…keep it coming! πŸ™‚

  • JW

    is he starting? why is he getting interviewed

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes, Kobe, Price out. JLin and Ellington starting backcourt

  • JW

    thanks. didn’t know price still out.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That was a good block by Ed…. how in the world was that a foul?!?!?

    OH WAIT… home court advantage

  • sport

    So annoying and confusing Len sounds like Lin ><" Can they just call him Alex?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Announcers should use JLin instead of Lin

  • sport

    I agree JLin sounds so much better!

  • Sophie Paris

    Ikr I sent myself up for derision lol. If I was with Michael he would have known tho. xD

  • Rene#17

    333333 for Lin.

  • Dorothy

    333333333333333

  • JJ Hui

    Yes! lin 3!

  • sport

    Off dribble 3 pointer, keep shooting those off dribble shots Lin!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    36% behind 3 point line? I want it to be 50%! πŸ™‚

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Sophie Paris

    Oh yea I tick all the time

  • kittyhead

    OLin GoGoGo

  • Rick Johnson

    Davis got to get better with FT.

  • izzykiLL

    Lets go!!!!!

  • Love Lin

    Lins playing aggressively 4 the 1st half..

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That Jeremy circus shot! Burn Dragic,burn!

  • Maknusia

    nice…JLin again…go Jeremy!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    wow chemistry looks good

  • Maknusia

    wow…early 3s from LAL!

  • Charlie Sun

    Amazing how the Lakers can score more with a quicker pace (set by JLin)

  • sport

    LOL Johnson had all the time to take that 2nd 3 point attempt!!

  • MoominFloren

    Seems Lin is doing pretty good so far……Go Go Go

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I like how the Lakers are playing now…

  • sport

    Lin not getting foul calls this game cause PHX refs are bias, just gotta make shots instead of looking for fouls.

  • Sophie Paris

    Yes gonna be a good Lin tonight

  • Rene#17

    So fun to watch the faster play and passing the ball.

  • CaliUSMC

    layup and a 3? Nice πŸ˜€

  • sport

    Lets hope Kobe and Price continues to stay out of all the games for rest of the season!

  • Maknusia

    Pretty much most of the games

  • Maknusia

    Lin need to keep the PFoul at check

  • blubell

    oh no… foul trouble

  • Alaingrvis

    foul calls refs are such wow

  • Rene#17

    Bs calls by refs on Lin. Now he has to sit with 2 fouls.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugh.. fouls….

  • sport

    OMG…JLin was getting going but now out before 5 minutes for Clarkson!! See BS will always using the bench player to eat up Lin’s minutes!

  • Maknusia

    Clarkson is in

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Foul trouble there..

  • sport

    PHX refs hate Lin, never give him foul calls! So annoying when Lin has to play against them!!

  • Love Lin

    Just getting warm-up, then sitting him.. πŸ™

  • CaliUSMC

    I tune in and Lin goes out.. I must be bad luck 😐

  • Alaingrvis

    foul trouble has to come out

  • Alaingrvis

    foul trouble

  • deesee5

    Should keep track of Lins foul count before posting this kind of stuff there buddy.

  • sport

    Yet Clarkson gets foul called for him.

  • sws94

    Yes, I’m not sure either was a foul but he has to be more careful about fouling.

  • deesee5

    I just tuned in too.

  • JW

    so with kobe and price out, LAL should have so young legs other than boozer.

  • Brewkowski

    Is Young hurt or doghouse? Usually he’s first off the bench.

  • JoeTeam

    Let’s go Q2! Lin get back in there and keep your fouls down.

  • Rene#17

    Of course he doesn’t look Asian.

  • Sophie Paris

    He’s here

  • deesee5

    I wonder if Khuang is in attendance..

  • Brent Yen

    Refs call weirdly…m….but seems like at least it is balanced…not like just one way …

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Psalm said he and Jeremiah might meet up with KHuang before or after the game I think.

  • 1mtoldman

    with gerald green and young in you have the two primo bench chuckers in the league; only non starters to pump up a shot every two minutes.

  • deesee5

    Oh word? I didn’t know all were from the same area.

  • Chipdip

    any good link to watch the game? thanks

  • Maknusia

    Kelly can really shot his 3!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremiah flew to Phoenix just to watch this game.

  • Maknusia
  • deesee5

    Dang! Dedication right there!

  • MoominFloren

    How? Working, no game for me πŸ™

  • Brent Yen

    One of the worst transition D I have ever seen

  • Brewkowski

    IT just cruised by Black for the easy layup.

  • Alaingrvis

    quick mf

  • Brent Yen

    Nothing….just sometimes I thought it should be called and it was not called, vice versa

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JW

    black didn’t realize how fast thomas is

  • MoominFloren

    ic, thx

  • sport

    Lets hope JLin doesn’t go cold when he comes back in. I hope he’s starting 2nd quarter!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Out of topic, but based on commercials during NBA timeout it seems like US has a very liquid market for everything, from buying cars to mobile plans. I like it, and frankly I’m a bit jealous.

  • Brent Yen

    He turned too late

  • Chipdip

    thank you

  • Dorothy

    from where?

  • Alaingrvis

    what do you mean liquid ?

  • Chipdip

    Thanks Mak

  • Keith

    Just hate Isiah Thomas.

  • Maknusia

    At least LAL kept it close neck to neck Q1

  • IsabeliJane*17

    For example, you can lease a car there. In the Philippines, we can’t really lease a car. You guys have flexibility in purchasing a car.

  • Maknusia

    Waiting for @psalm234:disqus reporting now

  • Rene#17

    What Coach BS goes with Clarkson for the last shot???? If he made it Lin would be sitting on the bench longer in the 2nd Qtr.

  • sport

    Lakers would’ve lead more if refs didn’t cheat by giving fouls to Lin!

  • Maknusia

    He is a good shooter as well

  • CJSHYY

    Why it’s not Young?

  • 1mtoldman

    1st quarter lin report; 3rd most minutes, most shots taken! (for those complaining lin doesn’t shoot enfu) 2nd most points, 0 turnovers (for those complaining about turnovers).

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Brewkowski

    Thanks, my feed was a bit behind.

  • kw
  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    U forgot the PFs…

  • 1mtoldman

    phantoms

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    that’s consumer addiction that hurts our country … good and bad with that.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    What Bledsoe did to Lin is what Lin should be ALLOWED to do to any PGs out there

  • Charlie Sun

    Perhaps a little too much easy lending…

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i googled it. us dollar is the most liquid in the world. cool stuff.

  • sport

    It won’t be if Lin doesn’t come back in soon for 2nd quarter!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m not sure.

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson a bit reckless

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Easy lending can be a blessing or a curse

  • JW

    guessing BS is waiting for bledsoe to coming back b4 lin gets back?

  • Rene#17

    We want Lin. Get Lin in!!!!

  • Love Lin

    Hes into the game now.. πŸ™‚

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Current lineup would be more competitive If Jeremy’s running on point

  • JoeTeam

    That’s his inexperience … need Lin!

  • JW

    but that would mean u want lin w/ the 2nd unit.

  • Charlie Sun

    8 offensive rebounds by Lakers. The reason this game is close

  • Charlie Sun

    Or JLin could play more minutes =)

  • JW

    i think as long as he’s not in foul trouble, he should get 30 min today

  • sport

    Many starters get to play with 2nd unit except Lin for whatever hidden agenda BS has!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Even for food US has a really liquid market.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin back in

  • sport

    Finally Lin back in!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    2nd unit is way better than the starters on both ends of the floor.

  • MoominFloren

    wow with the bench?!

  • deesee5

    Could have been Lin and Kobe on that backcourt list, but noooooooo

  • IsabeliJane*17

    WHO’S THIS (BLEEP) TALKING ABOUT PATRICK BEVERLEY’S DEFENSE?

  • Charlie Sun

    Bad possession. No movement

  • deesee5

    Reggie Miller. Bev and harden are number one on the back court scoring list

  • John Lee

    Clueless dinosaur from illegal defense era.

  • blubell

    nice pass!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    ugh!

  • Alaingrvis

    wow

  • IsabeliJane*17

    You just insulted dinosaurs.

  • blubell

    Back to back assists πŸ™‚

  • knibb

    What a pass!!!

  • deesee5

    Well it’s mostly Harden on that scoring load. He was saying Pat better be thankful to be on that list, but likes his defense.

  • blubell

    Jeremy comes in… LAL has largest lead.

  • Charlie Sun

    A bit high of a pass

  • Love Lin

    Hes acting as a facilitator of the team once hes back 2 the floor.

  • Brent Yen

    Alley oop fail….darn it

  • sport

    Those were nice assists to Hill though, just don’t force feed his teammates!

  • golfhacker

    He has to stop those one-handed passes.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy looking relaxed

  • JW

    guess he was turned the wrong way? he should’ve been ready for it.

  • Promo Sports World

    Get me 8 points

  • Brent Yen

    why?

  • blubell

    Reminder: Starting today league pass is free for a week.

  • Alaingrvis

    he ws actually laughing at bev being on that list saying he should by harden dinner and carry his laundry

  • deesee5

    But it looks kool!

  • Brent Yen

    He missed timed….did not get the lift

  • Promo Sports World

    16/7 is possible

  • sport

    10-12 points before 2nd half would be better!

  • blubell
  • David Kim

    20 pts 8 assts

  • sws94

    Lin has to watch the over help or going for rebounding positioning. He left IT open and he can drain those 3s.

  • Promo Sports World

    Seriously my expectations need to be better lol

  • blubell
  • Cookiemole

    Looking at his defensive stats the only category he is below average in is 3 pt defense.

  • Keith

    I hate when Lin tries to help others and left his guy alone.

  • golfhacker

    Because they are not as accurate and the passing motion is slower giving the defense more time to react.

  • Brewkowski

    Hill needs Price to settle his game down.

  • Brent Yen

    Johnson was just walking to rotate…WTH

  • Guest

    Oh man Hill 3 fouls. Maybe some Boozer, Davis, Lin action?!

  • Alaingrvis

    lins playing pg real well

  • Brent Yen

    WTH Hill…..please hold the ball better…

  • Alaingrvis

    hill has 4 tov

  • Brent Yen

    Not true…

  • sport

    Hill only had 2 fouls right?

  • JW

    davis not finishing at the basket tonite. thought suns don’t have strong inside defense.

  • 1mtoldman

    len-sanity!

  • sport

    Please take out Hill for Boozer

  • JoeTeam

    really depends what you mean. I mean if it’s a diving sidearm pass to the open man, you do it and it’s slower sure.

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    hehe, psalm with his kids cheering Lin on … what a nice night for this site so far. Lin, just keep those fouls down for 4th quarter!

  • Brent Yen

    Put that the bench in the paint!!! like a road block!

  • 1mtoldman

    other than hills t.o.s lakers playing much different game; no one taking too many shots all players playing scoring. multiple passes often before a shot. who are these guys? (dont know if they can keep it up)

  • deesee5

    Those crunch wrap sliders look bomb. Gonna stop by Taco Bell during halftime

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Almost a steal… darn.

  • Charlie Sun

    Damn it Hill. Fix those butterfingers

  • Chipdip

    Davis, please WAKE up!

  • Brewkowski

    Hill is out of control with his TOs and PFs.

  • Alaingrvis

    ball movement is great today

  • blubell
  • sport

    OMG JLin hasn’t taken a shot since he came in!!

  • Alaingrvis

    davis a little off today

  • Alaingrvis

    playing pg

  • Charlie Sun

    Must be following orders again

  • JW

    he should have height advantage though over thomas

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I hope Jeremy will give those rubber bracelets he’s using to Psalm’s boys.

  • blubell

    wow… come on refs.

  • John Lee

    PGs are allowed to shoot.

  • Alaingrvis

    he sold it well

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugh 3 fouls!!!

  • sport

    Bias refs!

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly zero call for lin then that flop

  • cshot

    of course

  • sws94

    Lin gets no calls.

  • Brent Yen

    Haha ok….refs…

  • Alaingrvis

    he doesn’t

  • sport

    Lin should’ve taken some 3s when he was in! Didn’t take any shot attempts!!

  • Brent Yen

    I guess Lin has to show the arm more, like Harden..to force the issue

  • Rene#17

    JLin gets smashed under the basket and no foul call. Then bumps Bledsoe and is called for his 3rd foul.

  • Alaingrvis

    i don’t get what the refs have on lin

  • JW

    or even post against thomas

  • Charlie Sun

    So JLin vs BS/teammates/refs. Seems like a fair fight

  • 1mtoldman

    wave the arms.

  • nodomo

    are they ever going to give Jeremy a foul?

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy must have a chatty rep or something

  • Promo Sports World

    Makes no sense

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    For some reason, IT reminds me of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

  • Alaingrvis

    idk

  • FrankW

    LOL!

  • spiderman

    A real coach would argue the non-call

    How many of these have we seen this season!

  • FrankW

    Close game, don’t blow this one BS.

  • Promo Sports World

    Westbrook turtle at that

  • blubell
  • Sophie Paris

    With Westbrook and Wes lol

  • 1mtoldman

    game started to get a little hill centered in the last couple minutes but other than that best “team” basketball ive seen lakers play. more passing everyone contributing.

    phantom fouls on lin could affect p.t. in second half tho. still on balance it seems resting both price and kobe seems a good idea.

    the substitution patterns made much more sense this game than usual.

  • Alaingrvis

    laker and lin playing really well but the refs have ruin this game a bit for me. issue also slow pace style benefit defenders

  • Promo Sports World

    Minutes are even jeremy to get 28-30

  • Alaingrvis

    given foul trouble thats good

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s kinda bad. I like Donatello hahaha

  • Promo Sports World

    Need to knock out east coast bias but 16/7 hope….marathon training commences…stay positive folks

  • JW

    tnt announcers making fun of TNT showing LAL games

  • stam

    what can we do to show the absolute bias that the nba refs have against jeremy? i counted 2 fouls on him while going to the basket and he got nothing. He only has to breathe on any other player and he gets called for the foul. I don’t want to play the race card here but jeremy is definitely getting screwed on fouls as well as stolen stats.

  • MoominFloren

    Michaelangelo ?

  • Rick Johnson

    Refs ruining game.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    As long as he’s not Donatello, I’m good hahaha

  • Promo Sports World

    Pace way too slow without Kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    lol true also knicks games

  • JW

    they are saying especially without kobe. But the game is better w/o kobe

  • stam

    Lin is playing good defense in this game, the refs ruining it by fouling him out.

  • Alaingrvis

    also a fast pace offense would help lin get calls. this slow style makes it hard. why phx gets the calls while lin not but soft calls on lin while he gets called on for the slightest calls

  • Briiick

    The coach wants to leave a gap in the team so that Kobe can be plugged in at any time.

  • Alaingrvis

    well not to them

  • sport

    In 2nd half he really needs to come in looking to score!

  • webattorney

    Lin should hire Nathan Gottlieb as his marketing rep or something. The guy is Lin’s biggest fan.

  • stam

    They need better movement, they still crowd the paint and jeremy can’t drive. When he does drive, no one is free under the basket for alley oops nor are there 3 point shooters in the corner for dishing out. Also the screens they set are garbage.

  • Maknusia

    true….at times, Lin blows by so fast…its hard to catch the foul as well. Extended arm would help

  • CJSHYY

    I like what he said & he used to be a NYK beat writer.

  • webattorney

    Maybe him and Joyce Ward as his marketing rep.

  • stam

    transition points is one of jeremy’s key strengths, some people are too slow. You can see lin always looking around for someone to throw it to but everyone is behind him.

  • Frank

    if he doesnt score 12+ tn he will literally solidify hiimself as a back up

  • joyce ward

    I would do a lot better than the people they have now…LOL

  • webattorney

    Yeah, I know. For example, you could have got Charmin to pay him some money to appear on their internet commercial. Soft like Charm-Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    people told me pace too slow.scots system seem to prefer slow. the bench can go fast but not the starters

  • Frank

    I know this is how Byron wants you to play just pass the ball let others get it done
    but you gotta have some pride in your game

  • Rick Johnson

    Trouble is Lakers not a good defensive team so Lin needed for defense. He can’t rest on defense like Harden and avoid getting fouls.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin owning scotts system right now

  • joyce ward

    What is about Scott talking about line up changes. Has F/O given him so direction? scott asking Nash to come out and help train the PG’s. What is up?

  • stam

    foul’d again, no call what is this!!!

  • blubell

    What the heck… no foul? this is beyond ridiculous.

  • blubell

    yes! score.

  • Maknusia

    go Lin… coming in aggressive!

  • Chipdip

    A foul now? Wow…. finally one

  • stam

    why so much help defense lin damn

  • blubell

    so thats what it takes to get a foul… smh

  • sport

    F the refs!!! That hard foul was because they kept not calling fouls for Lin!!! That was so obvious if they still didn’t call that I’d would’ve gone crap shxt!!

  • Rene#17

    JLin has to get mugged to get a foul call.

  • stam

    i hope lin didn’t get hurt damn

  • joyce ward

    You know the reps always do he makeup fouls when they caught.LOL

  • Chipdip

    Thank you Ed for waking up… good dunk!

  • Maknusia

    Good AST by lin

  • blubell

    another blown assist…

  • sport

    LOL Hate Bledsoe Nice Flop with him on the floor but no call!!

  • joyce ward

    I hope he gets fined…LOL

  • Maknusia

    didnt realize this guy started the stream back again…He had stopped some time back. Thx

  • sport

    I still remember how he pushed Lin on purpose last game after the foul!! Hate PHX refs and their players who are jealous of LiN!!

  • Maknusia

    no more TO, pls

  • JoeTeam

    hill is just soooo bad.

    not boxing on oreb. maybe 3 goes on O and then no D. Prob 5 to 7 pts there.

  • blubell

    what was that?

  • joyce ward
  • sport

    OMG What was that? Lin should just taken a shot!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    What just happened there?!?!?!

  • sport

    All because Lin kept passing instead of just taking a shot! Ugh!!

  • Alaingrvis

    yea split second choice

  • Alaingrvis

    chaos lol it happens

  • JW

    Lin needs to shoot some of these shots. Defense gonna take away these passing lanes.

  • Linja

    WASTED DIME AT LEAST 5.

  • stam

    he would have if the refs were actually fair in giving fouls.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    davis is a little off today its ok

  • stam

    yeah davis blew a lot of shots today from lin. He would have at least 3 more assists if they didn’t blow it.

  • webattorney

    I swear, Nathan knows how to make Lin look good. The man is auditioning for a job from Lin.

  • joyce ward

    Lin hasn’t played with lin in a while, so I will give him a break

  • nodomo

    Lin needs to take some more shots…PHX quick hands causing some TOs when Lin should just shoot it

  • Maknusia

    Lin 2 Lin?

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • JW

    phantom foul on lin again

  • blubell

    on Hill

  • IsabeliJane*17

    On Hill

  • Maknusia

    Suns has started to push it…LAL need to buck up on X and O

  • stam

    NICE!

  • blubell

    beautiful lay up!

  • Maknusia

    nice layup…Go Lin

  • Chipdip

    This is called No Touch Foul

  • webattorney

    That’s the hesitation dribbling move I am talking about. Freezing your man and then speeding up.

  • JoeTeam

    nice announcers phx …

  • Maknusia

    lol…

  • JW

    oh. that’s good then

  • Maknusia

    Young is in

  • blubell

    refs………

  • Chipdip

    Haha… official PLAYS for the Suns!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Except for Miller who thinks Patrick Beverley is a good defender.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol literally all day

  • sport

    That’s why I hate PHX their refs are such cheaters!!

  • Maknusia

    more than 5 players on the floor!

  • JW

    just carzy. why was ref standing there so close to the play

  • stam

    did lin just get called for a foul again?

  • JoeTeam

    And did you see now refs not only swallowing whistles and blowing against Lin, but now they obstruct Lin. Wow …

  • Chipdip

    True… but this one is physically on the play… wow…

  • John Lee

    Lin will go down in NBA history as the guy who introduced the “no-touch foul” into the league.

  • cshot

    pls no

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    Did you see that ? The ref blocked Lin to cause the TO!

  • webattorney

    If so, that was a dumb foul.

  • BobbyH

    Are the refs assigned with teams? I thought they are random assigned for different teams/games?

  • blubell

    Making history wherever he goes… lol

  • Brent Yen

    hahaha….this is probably the 2nd time I saw things like that for past 20yrs

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yep… disgusting is an understatement.

  • Chipdip

    should stop the play and let Lakers has the ball…. oh… the refs are playing for the Sun… I almost forgot

  • sws94

    Lin looks like himself in this game. How many assists does he have?

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    No….

  • sport

    No that was Black, pheew!

  • blubell

    6 assists.

  • BobbyH

    What a weird game. But Lin, keep fighting. We are with you.

  • JW

    so was that lin’s TO?

  • Brent Yen

    5 blown

  • stam

    6, could have been 9 if they didn’t keep fumbling his passes

  • Solo

    My very first time !!!!!

  • Maknusia

    Lin Out Clarkson is in

  • Alaingrvis

    23 minutes for lin

  • sport

    Lin better get mad and start shooting!! I’d be mad if Lakers lose!!

  • Brent Yen

    Clarson needs to abuse IT with his speed.

  • JW

    i think lin should be back w/ 7 minutes left. unless clarkson do really bad

  • sws94

    I don’t think he needs to shoot this game. I like how he is playing. He’s running the offense and well.

  • webattorney

    Game over. It’s against a team like Phoenix whose players actually move around and set screens for their PGs, you can tell Lakers lacks talent. Probably the same thing against Houston and GSW.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    IT just got lucky he’s got some nice bigs.

  • Brent Yen

    Somehow every time I saw a rotation leak….Wes has something to do with it

  • sport

    He needs to get going if they’re going to get over the lost points!

  • occupatio

    that ref isnt just a hater but just incompetent.

  • Alaingrvis

    bench defense is sketchy today

  • stam

    damn this is not good.

  • Brent Yen

    Clarkson is not ready……so…make it simple for him..just PnR all day

  • Maknusia

    Q3 too many TOs….lost the lead

  • Alaingrvis

    he isn’t at all

  • sport

    BS don’t know PnR!

  • sws94

    If he does it with assists and steals, that’s good too. He’s been setting up his team mates and that’s what Byron wants to see. He’s redeeming himself for the last game. He’s driven to the hole a few times and had some nice finishes but he’s mostly been setting up the offense well.

  • JoeTeam

    This offense is really easy to defend … nor something. Just not a very interesting set of choices.

  • sport

    They are literally HOME refs!!

  • stam

    unless Lin goes crazy and shoots the lights out. unlikely though.

  • sws94

    Where’s Joyce?

  • Brent Yen

    THere is a chance…..Lin won play because of garbage time

  • stam

    wow isiah is really good, respect.

  • sport

    Lin better bring it on in 4th quarter! Want to watch the PHX’s players lose even with refs cheating for them!!

  • Alaingrvis

    bench defense was soft putty

  • Frank

    team w/o lin is so bad

  • blubell

    Come on Mr. 4th quarter… be clutch!

  • Maknusia

    Q4 is gonna be a catch-up game, else Suns are going to blow out LAL

  • Chipdip

    Expecting Jeremy a strong 4qt. The 2nd unit without him is not playing well.

  • webattorney

    Phoenix’ PGs can match him and turn it on to 2nd level.

  • sport

    He needs to come back at the start of 4th quarter! They are only down 10 points, can still come back!

  • occupatio

    the officiating against lin continues to be disgusting

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    Here I am….LOL Had to step away for a minute to get my bearings. I love lin to death, but he needs to see the setup coming with Scott sometimes and beat him at his game. Lin is playing wells tonight and I am glad that he is back on track

  • JW

    i think BS will stick to his plan and let 2nd start the 4th.

  • Mr Chuckles

    It is going beyond biased.

  • webattorney

    Phoenix’ PGs can easily turn it on to 2nd gear. Lakers can’t keep up with them. They can go at a faster level for 30 more minutes by rotating their PGs and run Lakers into ground. No chance.

  • sport

    Johnson had 4 TO yet play the most minutes!! SMH Where’s Ryan Kelly?!

  • Brent Yen

    I do not think it will happen

  • 1mtoldman

    he could have said…”once lin leaves the game”.

  • blubell

    Hill with 5

  • nodomo

    Clarkson’s inexperience is showing…getting burned.

  • Brent Yen

    Scott with Inf

  • sport

    BS is so dumb, Ryan Kelly was 3-4 from the field yet he insist on playing Johnson!!

  • Alaingrvis

    hill is worse his misses and to always ended in a fast break

  • joyce ward

    The Lakers bench actually suck without Lin.smh

  • Keith

    BS always find way to lose

  • CJSHYY

    Bc no Kobe, Johnson instead… smh!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Great u rb

  • Maknusia

    Kelly should have been in

  • sport

    Doesn’t help that Clarkson is lost.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Really bad.

  • Brent Yen

    BS is really too old…..every teams know if you deny their 1st option…they are doomed

  • JoeTeam

    there are no offensive options on this team 1st or 2nd unit. Kobe being on the floor is an illusion.
    Clarkson so green.

  • occupatio

    its so obvious that when lin pushes in transition, the team actually does well. but BS is ‘resting’ him.

  • 1mtoldman

    yer head must be on a swivel by now.

  • Maknusia

    Are we competing for TurnOvers todays?! sigh

  • JoeTeam

    boozer working hard to get Phx in bonus.

  • webattorney

    Boozer thinking “Lin looks kinda different.”

  • Maknusia

    atleast he worked hard to get the rebound as well πŸ™‚

  • LAJane

    Yup…Clarkson’s the guy to spark the 4th Q…smh

  • blubell

    No PG out there…

  • Maknusia

    10pt game

  • joyce ward

    Scott doesn’t have a clue. I actually think he might be worried about his job, because kobe is kind of giving every indication that he is tired and wants to retire while he is still at the top of his game.

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson a sg. his defense is bad as well

  • Rene#17

    When Clarkson is in this game he shoots all of Swaggys shots.

  • Maknusia

    come on Black…you can do better

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Nothing for Young… smh!

  • JoeTeam

    yeah. he’s ok.

  • webattorney

    If I hear BS say “We missed Ronnie this game”, I am going to kill (figuratively) him.

  • Maknusia

    he is hungry for not getting minutes..so expected

  • blubell

    OK, enough…. Bring back Jeremy!

  • Brent Yen

    LOL calm down,,,,

  • LAJane

    Whether first or second unit, no one other than Lin is the engine that makes it go.

  • sport

    Just don’t listen to post game!

  • ETC

    Since you are an attorney I am sure you can defend yourself.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lakers starters, as much as they don’t want to admit it,needs Jeremy in the lineup every game.

  • spiderman

    Byron trying to make that point

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! BS just don’t know adjustment at all…smh!

  • blubell

    kill him with your kindness? lol

  • webattorney

    I added “figuratively” to protect myself just in case BS’ attorney is looking at this site.

  • ETC

    If we lose its because Price isn’t in there. If price is in there and we lose it is because Lin played soft. You can’t win.

  • blubell

    Clarkson needs to calm down.

  • joyce ward

    Exactly. look at the at the starters all of them have point son the board. With kobe, they would have not had point son the board.

  • JW

    really bad defensive rebounds. lucky they didn’t score

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    What is clarkson doing? Think it’s D-League or practice just playing so undisciplined.

  • ETC

    I just want Jeremy to score 8 more points.

  • Maknusia

    unfortunately he is not given oil to go

  • LAJane

    From your mouth to God’s ear regarding Kobe retiring early.

  • webattorney

    Phoenix just playing a practice game, really. Just a warm up game.

  • blubell

    Game over. Garbage time.

  • Maknusia

    he is too green…oh well Green got the shot as well

  • occupatio

    so scott says before game that they expect lin to do more… how is it possible to do more sitting on the pine?

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers bench looks horrible today.

  • Chipdip

    BS, may be now to send Jeremy back? may be…????

  • stam

    lol BS should have put the starters back in at 930

  • joyce ward

    He ha 10 points , right?

  • ETC

    They are in tank mode. It doesn’t matter. They don’t want to win without Price or Kobe in the game.

  • Alaingrvis

    bench has to be better nick giving zero help

  • blubell
  • webattorney

    I do will not get the marketing rep job from Lin. He’s too confrontational.

  • Michael

    Wonder what changed πŸ˜›

  • Brent Yen

    ….Scott should pul 2nd unit with Lin for the last chance.

  • sport

    OMG Clarkson is a train wreck put Lin back in after this time out!!

  • JW

    ok. Lin and the starters should be w/ 7+ minutes left. Lin should get his 30 minutes and be the scapegoat for the loss

  • grover chang

    I think it’s safe to tank now and let Lin play.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lakers’ depth chart for back court AND front court is as.. um.. deep as water in a dog’s water bowl.

  • webattorney

    With Lin, the game would have been closer, but really, Phoenix just playing around with Lakers until the 4th.

  • spiderman

    This is on Byron… tank commander

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    i sware bench had a lot better defense idk what happen

  • Brent Yen

    Not really…but Suns can definitely win the 4Q tho

  • Chipdip

    Without Kobe there, BS does not care about a win

  • John Lee

    Lakers down 5 when Lin left the game, six minutes with Clarkson now down by 17.

    Anyone still not convinced Lakers are tanking?

  • grover chang

    True the talent disparity is too great.

  • David Kim

    Starters without Lin is horrible.
    Bench without Lin is horrible too.
    Let Lin play at least 35mins.

  • Sophie Paris

    They are garbage since Lin out…

  • webattorney

    No, really. Lakers lack depth and talent.

  • occupatio

    why is my TV still on?

  • blubell

    Scott just can’t have Jeremy play more than 30 minutes.

  • Maknusia

    Lin is IN

  • occupatio

    ok

  • ETC

    Lin needs to pad stats.

  • Maknusia

    stick to the plan…lol he is just plain bad coach

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Poster named @stephentam:disqus you remind me of Jessica Stam, a Canadian model

  • LAJane

    ..like with a bad telenovela…it’s called “hate watching” πŸ™‚

  • spiderman

    what a genius Byron is

  • webattorney

    Putting LIn into game meaningless at this point. From team’s point of view, that is.

  • Maknusia

    lol…as I said earlier, it seems a TO competition, way too many

  • John Lee

    BS figured the L has been secured, pats Clarkson for job well done.

  • occupatio

    lin in but nick the brick is also. not much to see here

  • 1mtoldman

    i actually praised the minutes management in the first half. in the second half; to me and i had no opinion before: its clear to me that bs is tanking.

    he waited till the game got entirely out of hand to make substitutions. clarkson clearly out of his league–looked like a h.s. kid out there.

    joyce would say: smh.

  • ETC

    He just needs to enjoy the garbage minutes.

  • Maknusia

    lets go with 3, guys…we are going to close the gap

  • blubell

    they’re just trading baskets

  • JW

    anybody knows why they do the close encounter tone when thomas scores?

  • Chipdip

    3 more asts…DD

  • blubell

    Scott doesn’t have a plan and he is not a coach. lol

  • blubell

    Young is ruining Jeremy’s chances.

  • JoeTeam

    Jeremy calm.

  • ETC

    Sometimes I wonder if the miss assist are intentional.

  • sport

    Time for Lin to get some clutch 3s!!

  • Maknusia

    lol…I dont think so

  • webattorney

    Lakers need to be leading by at least 15 point with 5 minutes remaining in ANY game to feel safe about winning the game.

  • occupatio

    my soul feels dirty after watching lakers games

  • blubell

    πŸ™‚

  • Alaingrvis

    this is the best lin has looked in scotts system.

  • sport

    Why did it take BS this long to have the best lineup in?!!

  • Maknusia

    we are not taking enough shots, these last 2 games

  • blubell

    that’s deep… lol

  • LAJane

    Maybe the Lakers hired him because he has a thick enough skin to tank and let the bad-coach criticism roll right off.

  • Alaingrvis

    thats the style. also tov lead to less shots

  • Briiick

    As long as Kobe is not retired, coach will keep it slow without PNR.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Assist #8

  • golfhacker

    Don’t look around – just shoot!

  • Maknusia

    need 2 more AST for lin!

  • Maknusia

    1 more AST!!!!!

  • blubell

    #9

  • blubell

    oh no…

  • webattorney

    Oh man, feel bad for Black. Doesn’t look good.

  • sport

    Crap! Black going down!!

  • occupatio

    wow lakers curse is real

  • IsabeliJane*17

    OM!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LAJane

    Didn’t he just say he was looking to make more steals…GO Lin!

  • CaliUSMC

    wow..

  • JoeTeam

    Yeah, I heard that. But he said some nice things about Lin I like.!

  • Alaingrvis

    seem like it

  • webattorney

    He worked so hard.

  • blubell
  • MoominFloren

    what happen??

  • sport

    Or just bad trainers and coaching?! Lakers need to fire their trainers cause obvious they aren’t doing their job properly causing all these injuries!

  • webattorney

    Torn something I bet.

  • golfhacker

    Landed on Swaggy’s foot?

  • CaliUSMC

    poor guy…

  • Brent Yen

    I do not know why Lin passed that shot..but it worked…Young made it

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson has 1 assist. bench i.e young was missing a pg

  • CaliUSMC

    I want lin to give his next assist to Davis. So that they both get a double-double.

  • blubell

    haha. got his assist. so all is good.

  • ViNuyork

    oh no…not again…

  • Maknusia

    Instead of JHill, Davis should be in

  • sport

    OMG Hill in instead of Davis?!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I hope Tarik’s sprain won’t be too bad.

  • Chipdip

    Come on! Kelly!

  • Maknusia

    another TO

  • CaliUSMC

    Hill and them butter fingas

  • blubell

    double double!!!!

  • Chipdip

    10!

  • stam

    YES!!!!

  • Maknusia

    NYoung is hot on 3s

  • LAJane

    Double double!

  • CaliUSMC

    that 3 was clutch

  • Maknusia

    JLin double double! Thank You Young!!

  • stam

    Would be nice for lin to start scoring now!

  • JoeTeam

    Lin calmly bringing LAL back. BSc timed it just right to lose.

  • Maknusia

    Thanks you Lin πŸ™‚

  • JW

    should be down 7. with 4:05 to go

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ok I’m good with that double-double.

  • sport

    NOw Lin needs to make his only 3s to for 18 points and it’s good!

  • LAJane

    and here comes Johnson again

  • Maknusia

    we would love to see that πŸ™‚

  • blubell

    Bledsoe loved by the refs tonight.

  • John Lee

    BS the tank general, Wes the tank colonel.

  • CaliUSMC

    Was he the one that Lin gave a deathstare to for pushing him?

  • Maknusia

    oh my…shot have made that 3…Wes

  • LAJane

    …and that probably explains Johnson in again…safeguard the loss.

  • Maknusia

    missed it!

  • JoeTeam

    wanna double double with cheese.

  • webattorney

    That looked like more than just a sprained ankle; that’s my feeling.

  • golfhacker

    Jeremy HAS to make that shot. Open 10-footer. C’mon.

  • Maknusia

    darn..another TO

  • blubell

    Lakers media not talking about Jeremy’s double double… smh

  • JW

    DD with loss doesn’t matter too much

  • webattorney

    Phoenix just playing around with Lakers.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I like how Jeremy is calming down Nick.

  • Maknusia

    game over…might as well rack up the TOs…lol

  • blubell

    Young needs to be taken out.

  • Maknusia

    but he is the only one shooting

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    this is comedy

  • JoeTeam

    What a pathetic front court.

  • Chipdip

    Team Turn Over Problem!
    BS, it is YOUR problem, you better fix it and not blaming on individuals on the team.

  • occupatio

    most of these players have no heart

  • JW

    BS: If only we had Price.

  • sport

    OMG that was a meltdown after Black went down!! Why was Hill in over Davis?!!

  • Chipdip

    Agree 100%!

  • JW

    yea. especially when SUns playing small

  • occupatio

    good question.

  • Briiick

    Hill’s defense is worse than Harden ! Has he ever gotten any blocks ?

  • Maknusia

    Oh well, at least we know, that Jeremy player Superb with good assist and double digit…Good Double-double game for him. Added with 3 great STEAL!

    LAL lost because of TOs and not enough shots taken. And they slowed down on 3s after Q1. It was Young and Lin who brought the game back in on Q4.

  • occupatio

    and such a selfish player

  • MomentousPetey

    lol wut about Johnson?

  • sport

    Highlight of the Game: Lin calming Young down with the bear hug and brushing his hair LOL!! Someone gotta make a gif out of that!!

  • nodomo

    Bryon shoudl be fired. He left Clarkson in for too long in the 4th quarter and let the game get out of hand. Too many turnovers, bad shots, poor defense by Clarkson…

  • MoominFloren

    Really? hahaha

  • stam

    all those phantom fouls and lack of real fouls on lin cost them too. The refs helped with the loss. defensive break down in the 4th quarter.

  • JoeTeam

    yep, swaggy losing his cool trying to play ISO game, Booz arguing with Lin on the jump ball positioning further confusing swaggy / Hill, …

    I think BSc as someone noted should have call TO and put Lin back in for Clarkson with 9.5 mins. That was all the difference.

  • Maknusia

    comeon the guy only had 17min, the least for the lineup. But I do agree BScott need to fired, like yesterday!

  • MoominFloren

    But he is doing a great tank job……..trying different ways to lose

  • golfhacker

    If only Jeremy would show some frustration.

  • MomentousPetey

    Can’t forget the GREAT defense either

  • MomentousPetey

    were you watching the game?

  • sport

    Like JLin said he plays better went calm. He showed frustration at the cheating refs though!

  • stam

    Lin gets only 15 mins when he plays well. he should have put in Lin 3 mins earlier in the 4th.

  • Brent Yen

    It is all Lin’s fault!!!!!!! jk….can’t help

  • MomentousPetey

    HE WAS LIVID(as he should be) when the refs were calling bs fouls on him!

  • Maknusia

    thanks for the reminder…added

  • cshot

    i actually agree with nodomo on this one. clarkson should have been pulled out earlier after the first couple of TO and bad shots

  • John Lee

    Yes, but he was efficient, net -12 points in six minutes between 3Q and 4Q.

  • Alaingrvis

    scotts system has a lot of pgs. issue is when all the other pg except for the natural pg turn it over. lso nick young isn’t a finisher. showed today

  • stam

    Exactly what bryon is thinking. Lin didn’t do enough while he was on the bench.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    #TrollHard

  • kittyhead

    Clarkson is Laker’s next hope and it’s ok to let him learn experience. I dont care about the loss since your coach’s name is BS.

  • JW

    he does have the highest minutes. so must be true.

  • Chipdip

    BS does not think Jeremy any good… he would love to bench Lin with any excuse…
    Tonight: “The Ref blocked your shot!, You sit!”

  • stam

    Should have given lin the ball more than swaggy, would have been more ball movement.

  • Briiick

    If the coach wanted to win, he would have switched the 1st and 2nd unit. Instead, he inserts Lin into the slow 1st unit to show Kobe that his position is always there.

  • JW

    i think they do that cuz they guarding nick tight even w/o the ball. easier for him to have the ball to start.

  • Alaingrvis

    isiah was happy to see clarkson. lin closed him out except for those heat check 3 point shots

  • Maknusia

    that would have brought LAL way more wins! we had been saying that all along

  • JoeTeam

    he does and why bother. He calmly brought the team back by feeding Swaggy for what, 3-3s? very nice.

  • stam

    If lin had better picks and if jordan hill didn’t just stand in his one spot, there would be a lot more running to the basket

  • spiderman

    Byron’s legacy as a showtime Laker no longer exists. A man with no self-respect.

    He will forever be remembered as a loser

  • sport

    Wish Lin took more shots this game for more than 10 pts =/

  • Alaingrvis

    as i said before lin after a game looking lost in scotts system looked like he had played in scoots system for years

  • stam

    if bledsoe wasn’t so loved by the refs, lin would have performed better than him.

  • Alaingrvis
  • Briiick

    Look at the 2nd unit, they quickly became worse than the opposing 2nd unit when Lin was not facilitating them.

  • golfhacker

    Swaggy – black hole
    Wes – black hole
    Hill – black hole
    Boozer – black hole
    Clarkson – black hole
    Kobe – black hole
    Jeremy – get the $&/! out of LA

  • sport

    Home court refs for Bledsoe and Isiah Thomas!

  • JW

    goran 11/15 and thomas 9/12. they were shooting lite out.

  • stam

    davis had a hard time converting today; lin could have had 13 assists.

  • Brent Yen

    They have the reputation. What disgusted here is how they do not call a few for Lin

  • Alaingrvis

    not today they played well. just to much tov

  • JoeTeam

    Byron with his brilliant offensive system designed to slow everybody down so a part-time near-pensioner can come play. I’ve NEVER been on a team where anyone got time off from practice. If you don’t practice, you sit. And on and on. just saying this could have been a win if the team was coached.

  • Maknusia

    yeah…the least…they could have called the obvious ones, sigh!

  • Brent Yen

    It is hard to escape from a black hole….will be even harder to do so from lots of black holes…lol

  • Brent Yen

    Yep

  • JoeTeam

    I didn’t know this was matching … good job! Double Double!

  • David Kim

    Brandon Jennings 7pts 1-10 5assts 3TO 1steal in 30mins today.
    Jeff Teague 10pts 4-15 7assts 3TO in 30mins
    Lin 10pts 4-9 10assts 3TO 3steals in 31mins

  • JoeTeam

    My last knock on LAL bigs – they really bailed BSc out. Had Hill not brain-locked so many plays near the end, it would have been crystal clear that BSc left Clarkson in about 2.5-3.5 mins too long. Now BSc can throw everyone except Lin under the bus. Watch him try …

  • joyce ward

    I really believe that Clarkson will be traded. They are not really high on him. If they were they would have featured him more after Randle went down

  • stam

    he can always say lin is soft.

  • JoeTeam

    When Jeremy plays over 30 mins, they win. What happened tonight? Well, to be honest, they were playing a system designed in holding pattern for an aged pensioner, so it wasn’t an NBA contending setup.

    Mitch, can you do something about this?

  • stam

    lin should have gotten at least 4 free throws if they officiated fairly.

  • Frank

    Hill isnt coming back next year and nobody will want him
    ed coming back
    Lin better leave

  • Alaingrvis

    maybe but what will they get. he is very raw as a player. too raw

  • JoeTeam

    And I’m glad else he’d have a broken hip from Bledsoe’s NFL end-zone hit.

  • CJSHYY

    Trade? His salary it’s very low like 400,000 something? I guess probably will not sign him again.

  • Alaingrvis

    i doubt it maybe d league

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    Hill’s defense is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo soft.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    LAL is on track….

  • JoeTeam

    He was a mess and BSc was even worse for not managing his PT right. Jumping around, not thinking, throwing up shots from behind the backboard … sheesh.

  • sws94

    I’m very pleased with Lin tonight. No big deal about the TOs, they weren’t bad ones like the last game. He was calm, facilitated well with 10 dimes., played his game but enough of Byron’s to please him, played solid D even though the refs were calling ticky tack fouls on him and he only got one foul called on a drive and should have had 3.

  • jolno

    That and-one on Bledsoe (foul on Hill) was just embarrassing. Nothing touched Bloesoe on that play except the ball and the surrounding air. The later body check by refs on Lin was just the icing on the cake LOL.

  • Alaingrvis

    10-3 lol what tovs

  • JoeTeam

    you were watching! good report.

  • sws94

    I don’t think so, he’s just a raw player now with athleticism.

  • Brent Yen

    He did not get the chance to develop. He is already lucky that he is on the same team with Lin. otherwise he will get even lesser minutes

  • JoeTeam

    I checked Lin is about 3:1 TOV/A

  • Alaingrvis

    hmmm good stat

  • jolno

    Nick Young made some good plays tonight and you really can’t fault him for wanting to shoot when he got hot in the 4th quarter.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    I don’t know. I will see what Scott has to say. If he starts saying positive things about lin, the that is bc the F/O has intervened. If not then he is still in downward spiral so that they will have an excuse to fire him. I have been a Lakers fan for many years and I can tell you that this is the worst blight on this organization that they have ever had. They have the blight of not having the best players at times, but they have always had the coaches not go against the players to make the organization look bad. Scott has done damage to the image of the Lakers organization because he felt entitled because he has won a couple of championship rings. He has proven himself to be an inept coach and totally clueless to today’s basketball game. I don’t know what the F/O will do, but I hope it will be soon.

  • Sophie Paris

    Yes he was good a double double despite too many refballs.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    Correction:
    2:1 A/TOV per 36.
    Ronnie is 3.1:1, but he has no offense so not trying.

  • blubell
  • MoominFloren

    Waiting for Lin highlights as well as game reports from Psalm, Jeremiah & Khuang πŸ™‚

  • ETC

    I think Lin had a Good year so far. Most of the bad stuff out of his control.

  • stam

    If they did call the obvious ones instead of automatically giving him a TO, lin would drive to the basket like harden and draw fouls like he did during linsanity. It’s not worth it for him to drive now, he gets pummeled and TO.

  • blubell

    mini highlight πŸ™‚

  • Brent Yen

    He had a slight shooting slump…other than that, yes!

  • MoominFloren

    Thanks !!

  • JoeTeam

    Me too I believe he has damaged LAL. I don’t know LAL history, but blaming players and upholding Price (beyond what McHale did for Bev) and then knocking players before games … that’s not coaching and he should take his money and watch TV and complain to his friends.

  • JoeTeam

    He made some great shots when Lin was feeding him. Without Lin, he was the same, sort of freelancing and 2nd Unit gave up ground.

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s post game interview

  • JoeTeam

    Booz at a key time just before Lin came back in. Hill later with about 3 bad O plays and about the same bad D.

  • Brent Yen

    Game was on TNT and Lin did well. Good…..another successful audition

  • occupatio

    topless interview again

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! PG job audition. Too bad they lose the game… smh!

  • Jedi

    Enough black holes evenly spaced around him and he might just be able to stay where he is…kinda like a metal ball surrounded by 4 magnets. lol
    Although we should add that he can’t move.

  • Brent Yen

    Boozer is always bad on D. His value is completely build on his offense. so..

  • blubell

    Hehe.

  • occupatio

    they rarely rarely talked about lin. he’s invisible to reggie miller.

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    yep, like the announcers said, he should not try to dribble in transition.

  • Yascar

    Just because you said that I’m watching pronto! πŸ™‚

  • Brent Yen

    No one wants to talk about Lakers. THey talk about Kobe. So…I will take it

  • jolno

    Three assists is a lot for Nick Young though LOL. Anyways, it’s hard to break his old habit and Nick Young is a shooting guard in every sense. He just wants to shoot.

    I think the problem with the 2nd unit is the lack of a floor general to calm things down. Clarkson has long ways to go before he can become a serviceable PG. Right now he is just a SG playing PG. Lin probably needs to play close to 40 minutes for the Lakers to have a chance to win tonight.

  • JoeTeam

    They really complimented Lin well I think in his 2nd stint tonight.

  • JoeTeam

    don’t watch the end.

  • blubell

    I thought so too.

  • blubell

    Hehe.

  • JoeTeam

    I knew it …

  • stam

    sometimes his O is good. but his D is one of the worst out there.

  • CJSHYY

    I think they will sign him not Davis now.

  • blubell

    You told me not to watch the end… I had to watch it. lol.

  • sws94

    The announcers talked about him and liked his game tonight. I’m not sure about the guys in the booth, I didn’t listen to them after the game.

  • JoeTeam

    You’re right, taking Lin to 35 mins tonight would have done it. At some point, Clarkson gets out of this experience range and starts to lose confidence and then panics (that shot from behind the back board wow he’s not Paul Pierce).

  • Brent Yen

    @Psalm234 is there some where….he has to photobomb that pic!
    https://twitter.com/AngelieMeehan/status/557419344557129728

  • stam

    i wasn’t an NBA fan before Lin, but I am sure that it’s not the norm for coaches to knock on their players right before a game. That has got to be the first.

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    I DO NOT like the black hole metaphor here.

  • blubell

    Where is psalm? πŸ™‚

  • JoeTeam

    What, the push and shove D?

  • JoeTeam

    That’s a basic tenet of team play – you keep it in the Locker Room.

  • Maknusia

    Private session with Lin?!

  • joyce ward

    I love how the reporters always ask lin the hard questions and he gives the intelligent answers

  • JoeTeam

    Hope that sprain just hurt more than the damage. You never know with ankles … so complex a joint.

  • spiderman

    Lin has fans everywhere

  • blubell

    Well, they’re definitely not getting em from Scott, Young, Hill, Wes…. you get the idea. lol

  • stam

    swaggy talks a lot of crap when he has a good game. Lucky he’s got such an easygoing personality.

  • JoeTeam

    Glad to see this. If he is covered tighter and knocks those down, then he has the Lillard, Curry arrow in his quiver. Need to see this a LOT more.

  • kittyhead

    WOW Cant wait for the reports!

  • Jedi

    I can’t believe I actually watched that just to see what you guys were talking about….sigh.

  • stam

    he always waits for lin to lose the assist and then shoots but shoots it immediately with kobe’s passes.

  • Alaingrvis

    not really he just joking. he does theater he plays good or not

  • blubell

    Better than Stu going on and on about Jeremy’s miniscule mistakes.

  • blubell

    Clearly this is all JoeTeam’s fault.

  • JoeTeam

    It was my Vulcan Mind Meld force … Calling IJ7 now.

  • Maknusia

    thats very true!

  • JoeTeam

    i don’t mind instigating a bit … we get the cheerleaders. Speaking of that, when is Kenoshi coming here?

  • CJSHYY
  • blubell
  • FrankW

    Lakers had 8 more turnovers, 4 less blocks, 7 less steals, 5 less 3 pointers with 9 less field goals. Lin did well with a double double even with so many blown assists. He also had 3 steals. This game was close into the early third quarter then Suns pulled away
    and never looked back. Phoenix’s announcers piled on the complements after Lin make a nice layup and said he should do more of that. Wish he did instead of spoon feeding Young per BS’s instructions. Further BS should have Lin enter the fourth quarter earlier. Every time Isaiah makes a three pointer I wanted to smack him – that little guy is too good. Anyway on to the next game.

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    Yep, his interview said it all. He’s officially under instruction to feed everyone to get this team to gel. That after BSc does nothing and Kobe comes by from time to time to lose games.

  • jolno

    This young Lakers team (without old Price and Kobe LOL) played a competitive game tonight against a Western conference playoffs contending team in the Phoenix Suns. I guess this team was what Mitch envisioned (minus Randle and plus Black) during the off-season because no one really expected Kobe to come back after so many injuries or BS to find his lost son in Price.

    Hopefully tonight’s game is a step in the right direction and Lin can gradually gain control of the team over the old overrated “superstar” who should have retired already. Good bounce back game by Lin after being frozen like Olin in the Utah game lol.

  • blubell

    JoeTeam the Linstigator πŸ˜›

  • stam

    that’s really nice of JLin to speak to the crowd after the game!

  • Alaingrvis

    the young talent is there definitely . have to develop and add to it

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    I’ll take if if I can get his autograph some day …

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Frank

    still dissing lin indirectly what a douche

  • Alaingrvis

    not really. wasn’t lin at all

  • joyce ward

    I posted the same thing on twitter. All the Lakers need is add a few more pieces and new Head Coach, and I think they can become an up and contending team in 2 years, giving the players time to play with each other and build chemistry

  • Maknusia

    you sure?

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    Lin only had 3 TO s in this game.

  • Alaingrvis

    without lin -3 tov -10 assist

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    Hill had 6, Wes 4, other guys are bigger problem here.

  • stam

    Yeah, they need better offensive schemes. A lot of times they run the same play where lin passes it off, tries to screen someone but he’s not very good at it lol.

  • blubell
  • spiderman

    Why are they sitting so far? lol

  • joyce ward

    OK, why is Scott all of sudden wanting Nash to mentor his PG’s…This is bizarre

  • TTNN

    wrong, bigger crowd when he was with Rox, and hold a Q&A after GSW game. lol, that’s his hometown, so should not count.

  • JoeTeam

    Please take note of this interview and spread the word – Lin cannot get his shot in because he’s under instruction as said here to spoon feed all the kids on the team. You could see it perfectly clearly when he nursed I think 3-3s out of Swaggy and almost brought the team back within 5 from over 15 down or so. The bigs collapsed in the end.

    http://www.popcornmachine.net/gf?date=20150119&game=LALPHO

  • joyce ward

    This the kind of stuff that the NBA eats up. Lin ain’t going nowhere.

  • Alaingrvis

    has the most minutes for the lakers with foul trouble

  • Briiick

    The offensive scheme is as if Kobe were playing. Coach won’t change it until Kobe retires.

  • JoeTeam

    Yep, I was there Asian Heritage night. Looked like the whole corner was filled up to the boxes, But this pic looks close, not wide enough to tell.

  • blubell

    Crazy Lin fans. duh. LOL.

  • blubell

    Take any pics?

  • stam

    yeah i agree, it’s all about the way you say it.

  • JoeTeam

    stop trolling Frank.

  • FrankW

    Turnovers wasn’t the only problem. Phoenix had 32 raining three
    pointer attempts vs. Lakers’ 17. And BS don’t want 3 pointers.

  • JoeTeam

    He needs one for Clarkson, Price is too old but I liked his humility, and anyway, Lin would have some fun. Maybe Swaggy can learn some tricks so when he freelances, he has great bailouts.

  • Frank

    Whatever Scott says seems to have negative tone towards Lin
    maybe its just me

  • Frank

    how is this trolling?
    are you mentally challenged?

  • blubell
  • stam

    LOL, it feels like he’s been reducing the shoves recently, but i recall a time when it he’s had back to back pushes and then he gives a confused look to the ref.

  • Frank

    when he says take care of the ball better
    sounds like a diss to lin cuz he handles the ball

  • CJSHYY

    I guess maybe Kobe is out soon. That’s why he started to talk about Nash again…? I think Lin is coming back to starting lineup soon.

  • Alaingrvis

    not really his system has a lot of balls handlers

  • Frank

    Both are horrible teammates to Lin

  • blubell

    Please edit the foul language.

  • Frank

    Knowing BS, he doesnt seem to blame johnson swaggy and ellington a lot

  • joyce ward
  • blubell

    How so?

  • joyce ward

    Lin highlights

  • Grace
  • Frank

    im sorry but the d-word is foul language?
    isnt that a bit too far?
    I sense some double standards here

  • Briiick

    The coach is going to change the system away from the slow one designed for Kobe, with him retiring.

  • joyce ward

    Yep straight up flop.LOL

  • blubell

    So should the refs.

  • Maknusia

    When a Mod says, “please edit…” its only polite to oblige, rather than being defensive about it.

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    I see the highest Blk is one from Davis, which tells you how porous LAL’s paint defense is.

  • FrankW

    Douche is in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

    Ronnie is tough, Period – Byron Scott.

  • JoeTeam

    Yep .. but not of the post-event. Hit refresh to see Lin’s Wu Shu warmup.

  • JoeTeam

    Wasn’t that 2 weeks ago lol?

  • blubell

    That is a good stretch πŸ™‚

  • spiderman

    like, get away from Byron as soon as you can

  • IsabeliJane*17

    What’s the event in Phoenix that Jeremy has to meet up fans post game?

  • JoeTeam

    Nice to read.

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    IT with not 5 St, but more like 3 gifts.

  • joyce ward

    Scott is so dumb, that he doesn’t realize that lin/nash actually have a friendship and that they actually talk very frequently. This is just one more thing for Scott to realize that he doesn’t have a plan to develop the rookie players…smh

  • JoeTeam

    Whistle: Indirect trolling.

  • blubell
  • wandertheglobe

    Nash should take over as HC. Have Lin runs MDA system, it would be so much fun to watch.

    OK..Picture time! πŸ™‚

  • Maknusia

    that would be sweet!

    More…

    Hire Nash and fire Scott; that will be sweeter.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Did he miss?

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    He doth protest too much – it’s bad acting. I can hear the whine and smirk, it’s a repeated pattern.

  • FrankW

    I see Nash is working hard for his millions from the golf course by texting to Clarkson. Could you teach swimming by texting as well?

  • JoeTeam

    Postive, but stretched ligaments don’t show up in X-rays. Ah well, too bad.

  • Maknusia

    totally…thats what I meant

  • FrankW

    Wow, that was fast!

  • Maknusia

    More more…

    Lin played with a chest contusion – soft.
    Ronnie out with a sore elbow – tough.

  • TTNN

    he hurt his elbow? that was a hard crash

  • JoeTeam

    maybe why he took few shots after.

  • joyce ward

    What chest contusion?

  • FrankW

    My iPad keep dropping out on his long YouTube videos, need to convert to mp3s.

  • jolno

    I think Ronnie might be out for reasons other than sore elbow because it happened right after 20 games for the new lineup was up. BS was hinting at another lineup change recently and it could be a case of the front office forcing BS to start Lin again after BS’s curious experiment predictably failed. All speculations on my part with no facts to back them up though LOL.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordan led the team with twice as many TOs as Lin in less minutes.

  • Pete Roces

    LA will get into playoff if that happens!

  • Brent Yen

  • FrankW

    And it was a serious contusion according to a doctor but haters keep calling Lin soft. The doctor’s comment (not the official Rocket’s doctor) was on the website somewhere.

  • Maknusia

    hmmm it always thickens…but never seem to thin

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordan Hill had 6 TOs!

    Lin — — Better game from Lin as he orchestrated the offense with the ball in his hands a little more. This led to a team-high 10 assists. He also did a good job making sure Nick got the ball when he was on fire in the fourth quarter.

    On how Scott wants him to run the offense: β€œHe wants me to get everyone involved and get them set up and get everyone going in way that’s their strength,” Lin said. He said the trick for him is finding a balance with the screen-roll and mentioned trying to get some early offense opportunities in that and finding a balance with everything else.

    Defensively, the Lakers had their hands full with a trio of Suns guards. Some foul trouble for Lin in the first half but he didn’t pick up another foul the rest of the way.

    The Stats: He scored 10 points on 4-9 shooting (1-2 from three, 1-2 from the line) to go with 3 boards, 10 assists, 3 steals, 3 turnovers and 3 fouls in 31 minutes. He was a -4.

    The Action: He got tapped on a layup at the front of the rim. He sank a quick-fire three off the early offense screen. He found Davis in the lane on a lob for FTs. He attacked from the wing strong and scored the layup. He was blocked trying to score on a quick counter strike after a made basket. He hit Hill running the floor for the dunk. He found him on the two-man game for the 21-footer. Off mark on a lob to Davis who was left open. He pounded the dribble too much, then attacked and was blocked. He then picked up his third foul with 31 seconds left in the half and had to sit.

    Second Half: He probed baseline, kept his dribble alive and found Hill under the hoop for the And-1. He looked obviously fouled on a pass with no call, layup the other way. He scored a layup when Davis scooped up a loose ball and hit him in transition. He attacked the paint strong and came down hard in a pile for FTs, he made one. He found Davis pop free at the elbow he was able to attack for a dunk. He pushed out the break and hit Ellington for FTs. He missed a sideline three. He pushed up the break and threw a bad pass that Hill couldn’t finish (looked like a sure layup before that). We got it back and this time Lin’s bad pass was picked off. He attacked to his left off the screen and scored the layup. He lost his man and gave up a three. Great job pushing up the break and finding a hot Young for the And-1 three. He missed a big step-back jumper with over 2 minutes left.

    I hope you guys understand that Jennie Buss is responsible for all the marketing and media interviews for players that come out of LA, especially when they are on the road. Lin getting all of the interviews and the media attention when Kobe is not there is not coincidence. Lin having a media event after the game tonight is not happen stance

  • JoeTeam

    GSW Asian Heritage night was about 2.5x that, but it’s the Bay Area home town … good stuff.

  • TTNN

    are you saying they are seriously thinking shutting Kobe down? Lin even got a pre-game interview today.

  • CJSHYY

    No wonder Kobe would not show up until tomorrow… LOL!

  • JoeTeam

    Glad to read this. So, every sit game, let’s have a party!

  • TTNN

    yeah, but still surprised there were so many people. To be fair, that was the first game Lin came back after Linsanity, thus lots of people going.

  • real-dsb

    The only person sitting “right next to Jeremy” is a woman. Just some space and a giant check on the other side. =p

  • TTNN

    Lin really need to throw some shoes to be tough.

  • JoeTeam

    Tonight’s Highlights:

    1. calm Jeremy taking the team back from 19pts per PFV to about 5.
    2. calm Jeremy stroking that 3 behind the screen. A little more challenge and it would have been a Curry or Lillard standard.
    3. Jeremy NOT being hurt by Bledsoe’s end-zone hit
    4. Jeremy getting praise on 2nd half stint 1 from announcers
    5. double double and strong stats all around
    6. clearly a possible win had Byron cut Clarkson’s gig by 3 mins
    7. psalm’s picture with your check! good job !

  • JoeTeam

    Yes, fair is fair. First back in the Bay so you are right. Phx the faithful, Lin shall rise from the ashes he he. not really ashes.

  • joyce ward

    My theory is that Kobe did his little drama bit about , if I can’t get what I want then I won’t play. I think the F/O called him on it this time, that is why his narrative is that I will do what ever the F/O wants me to do.

  • JoeTeam

    I love the guy doing the selfie – it’s the modern day I was there but not present …

  • Bearness

    Haha, it seems like he was a little shy though. Definitely could have sat closer to him instead of leaning over. =)

    BTW, it was a great time of Q&A between JLin and the fans. I’ve got some videos, hopefully I can upload it

    But let me give the brief update of the check presentation. I told him how he had so many fans around the world who love and supported him. And we wanted to support him to show our love and appreciation by donating to his Jeremy Lin Foundation. I told him his fans from around the world like Italy, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines, Hong Kong, Australia love him very much and can’t stop talking about him every single day =) ..

  • joyce ward

    That’s awesome @psalm234:disqus,

  • joyce ward

    The reason, I say this is that Scott has seemed to temper his comments about lin. Lin played the most of the starters tonight,. it just seems strange to me that Ronnie Price is out with an elbow injury. Not buying it. I think this is time to evaluate his starting lineup with lin, when Kobe is shut down after the Alls-Star game.I think if this team had the right coach and enough time to gel, this team will look the team OKC team 5 years ago,young, but in contention.

  • MoominFloren

    You’ve read my mind..hahahaha

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    We all are but some fans still want him to play and not BS. I feel that KB should retire now and BS should leave/be fired so that Lakers can rebuild. With KB is lingering with BS, Lakers is going no where. It will be extremely silly for Lakers to hand on KB until end of his contract. The damage will be too great and will take years to rebuild. If KB and BS stay even after this season with current toxic environment, I really want JLin to take any offer but Lakers.

  • joyce ward

    I was thinking that since Stuart Scott passed that perhaps ESPN has approached Kobe to do what Scott did by adding hi own brand to ESPN reporting and that is why Kobe is willing to do what the F/O wants to do.just some thoughts

  • Jedi

  • sport

    Why do I feel like every time BS plays Hill too long that they lose? Why didn’t he play the 4th quarter lineup for most of the game? It’s so obvious that the Lin, Young, Kelly, Black,and Ellington should be the starting lineup!

    what about psalm with a shirt?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It did. At least I did:-)

  • 1mtoldman

    the foundation is being laid. lakers site writers are now suggesting both kobe and price be shut down. so that clarkson can “learn on the job”. since the season is a tank anyway.

    and of course there’s the “rumors” of kobe being “great” for a commentator role. but….i dont think that plot has thickened yet.

    it was interesting on broadcast last nite at some point they listed all the “young” lakers players (27 and under) and their contract status, NOT DID NOT INCLUDE LIN!

  • Maknusia

    If I’m not mistaken this is his 3rd Double-Double for the season

  • Maknusia

    He could give you that consistently , if he was allowed to play atleast 30-32 min

  • 1mtoldman

    during the game i noted when it was starting to get too “hill centered”. not good. and of course time management in second half (as is usually the case) seems to be in full tank mode.

    still for the first half got a feel for what could be.

    i still dont like young on first unit tho. would go add davis subtract young from yours.

    retire kobe. waive price. (cause as long as price is there hes #1; kobe and price are kind of a pair, lakers site writers are already suggesting shutting down both kobe and price 2 make time to “develop” clarkson: and assuming the season a tank.)

    Some good games that jeremy had this season, that I had posted on PFV youtube

    Hi Paul, thanks for the video as usual :).

    To me there were couple other games where JL did better
    1) Nov 18th against Hawks. JL started and played together with Kobe and performed superbly and LAL won the game
    2) Oct 31st against CLippers. Superb backcourt game by Kobe/Lin
    3) Dec 12 against Spurs. JL had 30min but did not start, LAL won the game

    There are many more. I think the key is, as long as he gets 30mins he plays well in majority of the games.

    just my take πŸ™‚

    Haha, I know what you mean except it’s the reverse for me. My wife always reminds me whenever we fight that I chose a strong willed woman with a mind of her own instead of a meek and submissive one. That usually shuts me up good. She was a very good athlete from a rival school that I always had my eyes on. I forsaken many other advances to chase after her and she never lets me forget it. 30+ years later, she still keeps me on my toes with her sharp wits and powerful personality.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    At this time a year ago, D’Antoni had 16-26 record without Kobe comparing to BS’s 12-30 today.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin’s number one problem might not be just his coach but also the NBA refs.

  • yes, excellent thoughts.
    Next time, we should do the drive in Nov-Dec timeframe to qualify for the tax season. We’re a bit late to come up with the idea but we’ll learn from the experience =)

    It’s a bit tiring and stressful process but I don’t mind doing it for great supportive Lin fans & great cause =)

  • Thank you, Paul =) It was a great time for people all-around.
    I’m sure it made a lasting positive impact to the families attending the Q&A since Jeremy was very encouraging for families to help pursue the kids’ dreams.
    Still a great inspiring young man helping many people with his stories and just simply being humble.

    I’ll tell you more about it later

  • Dan Cohen

    that’s mean.. no need to picky on pricey..
    rather have lin on the bench when kobe is the 1st unit.. and have him starter if kobe is out and pricy is out. if pricey is not out.. pricey might freeze out lin.

  • Dan Cohen

    yes, but so is ed davis..but there is no eddavis.net

  • I need to find time to write down thoughts after watching how the game unfolded and how he interacted with coaches.
    But my #1 impression is this…

    Lin can never score 20-25+pts/5asts with Byron Scott’s approval since that’s not his role for him. It’s more like 10pts/10asts or 12pts/8asts as a non-scoring facilitator (but Lakers would still be losing, of course). Basically he wants Lin and Ronnie Price to play a role, not wanting to utilize Lin’s scoring strength but just play his system of favoring big men inside to create. No PnR whatsoever was quite maddening to watch. This is why Byron would never be a good coach since he doesn’t tailor a role to a player’s strength and his system is so outdated.

    Byron wants him to set up his teammates first, repeatedly going into the big men (even Hill was not bringing it last night).
    Often times, Lin would look at the coaches’ direction to see what plays to set up and he’s going to choose which teammates to set up, not to score himself. Plus Byron’s system is pretty bad and outdated w/o PnR and noone cutting to the basket/moving w/o the ball so Lin can’t find them easily for easy points. Throw in the bad defense (who caused the loss after the mini-run) and lack of desire to rebound, this is pretty much why Byron’s system is perfect for tanking.
    It’s like bringing 80s dull knife to the gun-fight with 3-ball and fast-breaks.

    The good thing is I’m growing more confident that Lin would never sign up to play in the FA under Byron’s perfect Tanking system. Oh yeah, the refs were pretty bad with the calls. Laker fans (30%-40%) in the building were quite vocal in booing the home-cooked calls last night. Everyone can see they allowed Suns hard fouls w/o calls.

  • yes .. I believe Lin would need more acting class ala Harden to trigger the refs’mind to blow a whistle.
    But last night ref calls was pretty bad all around against the Lakers.

  • CJSHYY

    What made you think so about this? ” The good thing is I’m growing more confident that Lin would never sign up to play in the FA under Byron’s perfect Tanking system.”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Perhaps maybe BS does all the talking but in reality is he does not know PnR offense? He complained that Lin needs to set up the offense for his teammates faster but not allowing fast speed and most of the time Lin has to wait for Hill to get into position to feed him the ball.

  • mostly because he was able to drain all those practice shots with ease but he often looked toward the coaches bench to run plays to facilitate first. I got a feeling he feels underutilized but he’s being a good soldier to play the facilitator role that Byron wants.

    There was a time towards the end of the game when they’re down 15+pts and 4-5 coaches talked for a long-time on court during TO. They looked confused on what to do to come back in the game. They talked to a group of players but Jeremy was not the main part in the group, possibly more to the side. There was 1-2 times when assistant coaches talked to Jeremy in length after a good stretch in the game (I got all pics) so that’s great to see. But I never got the sense that Byron talked in length to Lin about the main plan.

    idk, it could be gut feeling. But no PnR which is Lin’s bread-and-butter and he’s playing the facilitator part more like a role player led me to believe Lin can do more. I really don’t think Lin will sign up to play for BScott willingly. It’s simply a bad system not utilizing PG to score, just to facilitate. Perhaps perfect for RPrice but not Jeremy.
    Just my 2cents

  • CJSHYY

    My friend said in some games they saw that white hair AS coach? (don’t know his name..?) always walked to Lin on bench & talked to him..

    BTW, did Lin do any handshake before the game? Did you see anyone more close to him?

  • perhaps. I think Byron wants his big man to create offense like how Princeton system works but Princeton requires big passing men to feed the guards if they’re covered. The 2nd part just doesn’t happen enough. Lin just never gets the ball back on the perimeter.

    So Byron’s Princeton system is broken since the big men don’t pass enough or they can’t pass. Boozer is the only one who can do it but no big men did enough.

    But again, the main problem is defense that derailed the mini-run.

  • yes, you should see the hand-shake in the TNT PlayerCam youtube video below.

    Yes, the white-hair coach and another assistant coach also talked in length with Lin on strategy.
    I have pics later.

  • CJSHYY

    Oh! Never Scott always that white hair AS coach.. Good. Do you think Lin seemed to be happy or not in Lakers now?

  • webattorney

    I thought they called it on Hill on this one?

  • I think he’s happy with his teammates to be good influence to them (as his prayer-request emails said and how Nick Young confirmed Lin has been helping him lately, went to chapel LOL) but not his BB role.

  • CJSHYY

    Young to Chapel? That’s good.. It works. Young is shooting better now… LOL!

  • thank you, @Marie Simon πŸ™‚
    Greatly appreciate it. It helps to cover some of the printing cost LOL so you actually helped sponsor the check or the Thank You card hehe..

  • not sure if he’s joking about that part but the part of Lin helping him was genuine :]

  • CJSHYY

    I believe so… confident in shooting again… πŸ™‚

  • Thank you for the kind words, @gasparthe2:disqus
    Many generous people here and at Twitter who are not regular posters have made it possible so it’s definitely a collective effort. Good to see that we are able to help uplift Lin’s spirit and show we appreciated all that he does! :]
    So you’re not ‘Home Alone’ lol ..

  • JAD2456

    Neither Lin nor Hill touched him enough to make the foul call, refs were clearly biased!

    I’m getting a little tired of the Real GM mods. They have like 5 mods all with the same opinion of Lin and they are always taking little jabs at him. I said my bit there but I may stop going there. I thought at least the Houston Real GM mods were a little fairer. It would be nice to see an Laker mod at Real GM be more supportive of Lin and those that challenge the Lin is nothing but a backup narrative they have going there. I find Lakersground much more easy to deal with.

  • yup, I always like DancingBarry’s unbiased review and ratings at LG
    I’ve never been to Lakers Real GM yet

  • Briiick

    I don’t believe BS not liking pnr, he had done it well for CP3, Kidd etc. I think he doesn’t want to do it now because Kobe is watching from his back.

  • sws94

    There’s a real anti-Lin bias there. I don’t think they are very good mods at all.

  • joyce ward

    So what do you make of scott wishing Nash to come in and mentor the PG especially Clarkson?

  • webattorney

    LG pretty good, although I never go there as its purpose is for Lakers in general. They know Lakers suck, so they don’t really blame Lin.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t want Price? They want Clarkson to be backup for next season?

  • webattorney

    That BS thinks Clarkson not ready to play.

  • JJ Hui

    It is ok, some posters discovered this link earlier and some watch it later. It is no harm done if you or someone posted this link more than once. I rather see this than someone attacking Lin!

  • joyce ward

    He “s not. The game gets away to easy for him.

  • LAJane

    Your great report is so helpful and encouraging. You’d think watching on TV would be good enough, but it’s just not the same as being there. You just have a wider view and feel of the whole of the game dynamic – not only the court but the interactions on the bench, among the coaches, the arena energy. When direct experience by a knowledgeable fan makes it so clear how outdated and inadequate Scott’s approach is, then it’s equally clear how obvious this also is to Jeremy. As KHuang always points out, Jeremy has got the fundamentals in spades. He’s not confused about what’s happening and I now have even greater trust that he knows what is possible in these tremendous limitations and is pushing those limits wherever he can. Thanks for this excellent account and terrific analysis!

  • JJ Hui

    No one touched him, bias referee! May be they just breath on his skin! LOL!

  • yes, way too many mistakes last night ..
    But he doesn’t get consistent minutes either.

    Plus he spent too much time on court last night despite Lin’s foul-trouble.
    BScott should call a quick TO and Lin should’ve been coming in early

    Not sure what the play for Nash to come in. Probably to get more Nash’s support of his coaching by agreeing to tutor younger PGs.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well we could send him a video instead of physical card. Psalm can put some credits or something at the end.

  • that could very well be true since PnR tailors to Lin’s strength and putting the ball in his hands which conflicts with the main narrative of Kobe as the PG and sole hero.

    Then it’s definitely more reasons for Lin not to resign with LA if it’s an intentional act to remove PnR to cater to Kobe and downplay Lin’s strength/popularity

  • joyce ward

    Or, perhaps the F/O hinting that he is not the coach they want to use to rebuild the team.

  • pero_square

    <3 Gottlieb. I saw him calling out Bill Oram on twitter haha.

  • blubell

    They did… but still it is a no call.

  • You’re 100% correct. I was able to constantly look at Lin’s interaction with teammates/coaches after good/bad plays and got more appreciation of what his role during a huddle/bench/on-court. TV is just focused on following the ball so we lose all this dynamics.

    Lin is constantly a leader on court, giving encouragement to teammates, whispering strategy, directing teammates what to do during TO in late-game situation. I can tell his teammates appreciate his leadership to want to make them better. Nick Young had testified in the interview. Lin hugging Nick Young not to get a tech was great to see. Those two are pretty close right now =) It’s real-life friendship and leadership that matter the most indeed.

    Lakers might not be winning but Lin’s winning characters continue to be full on display and winning his teammates’ respect and appreciation. Jeremy is simply Linning in what matters in life. Great job by the young man indeed to continue to stay true to his faith and good characters!

  • pero_square

    Good job representing. It must have taken a lot of effort to organize this. I got a bit misty-eyed reading the part where Lin clutching the card. I hope this gives him strength when he is feeling down.

  • Rick Johnson

    I don’t see Hill touching him either. They called that on Hill?

  • webattorney

    I don’t think any PG would excel in BS system. Most PGs not named Kobe would end up cussing at BS, unless you are like Price who is grateful for any chance to play. It seems like BS is blaming Lin for all the things that other players cannot do. I am telling you even Magic couldn’t get Lakers to playoff. One thing Magic would and could do is to kick out Kobe and BS and make the team gel. Lin doesn’t have the resume to do that.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol ask nick young and the bench. young really didn’t play good until lin came back.

  • I think the refs were wearing “Vegas Gambling Odds” glasses LOL

  • Briiick

    Yes. He wants Nash to support his coaching and share the responsibility of tanking as well. Nash had already told him no by not contacting him anymore.

  • LAJane

    Boy did Bledsoe give him a hard foul…even the Suns announcers were wincing on that one “..that’s all hardwood!” Jeremy limped a bit and was clearly in pain. Threw him off on the first of the two FTs. Could have affected his shooting for a bit – though he did get into double figures woot woot. Also nice to see his good relationship with Nick, including calming him down after the technical he got. Won’t keep Nick from chucking like Kobe, but good chemistry is better than bad πŸ™‚

  • webattorney

    Psalm, let us know when you post the video of Q & A.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    @psalm234:disqus…how was the chemistry of Ed Davis/Wayne Ellington and Jeremy off court?

    Thanks!

  • Briiick

    Recall that Lin said in public in the beginning of this season he preferred Rox offense, which sounded very frustrating to me for him to say that.

  • webattorney

    I have a very hard time understanding the rating symbols though. He should really use 1 thru 10 point rating system.

  • Rick Johnson
  • spiderman

    I hope Lakers sign Price to a max contract

  • webattorney

    Only several issues left this season for me that are interesting: 1) Will Kobe retire or stay one more year; and 2) Will Lin stay with Lakers? 3) Will BS stay? Other things, I know pretty much.

  • Briiick

    only if BS’ salary can be used for it.

  • CJSHYY

    So that’s why Kobe maybe will play then? Even NYK beat them last night so if Kobe plays this game then he is more likely to get the win than vs Sun.

  • sws94

    I don’t think he wants to use numbers, he’d rather go with the expressions in the emoticons.

  • LAJane

    can’t be…too young to have all that bball history. Wonder if he’s lurking there somewhere in the crowd.

  • Brent Yen

    I am more interested in how much FO really wants Lin

  • CJSHYY

    I think Kobe will stay until his contract is up but maybe not full season. Lin will stay so is BS at least until Kobe is out.

  • gasparthe2

    πŸ™‚

  • webattorney

    That, you will almost never know. Now, if they offer Lin 10 Mill per year contract, then you will know.

  • Brent Yen

    But it is more interesting to know…..lol

  • webattorney

    Gotta make what you want to know knowable based on clear and simple actions. But we will know if FO really wants Lin if they offer him good money.

  • Brent Yen

    That is what I am waiting for….All about the contract

  • webattorney

    I guess $5 Mill per year and no guarantee he will start.

  • JJ Hui

    That is why it is hard not to like Jeremy Lin, right?

  • CJSHYY

    That female reporter from ESPN said last year… it’s like 3 years 25M.

  • LAJane

    Was that from the Bledsoe smash? The commentators thought he might have landed on this tailbone. Whatever…he sure takes a beating and doesn’t go down. Must be in really great health for his body to handle these insults so well!

  • Brent Yen

    I hope so..

  • JJ Hui

    BTW, Is KHuang smiling behind you with black shirt and reverse black cap?

  • Brent Yen

    Maybe 6 Mill, but hopefully he will get a long term stability too.

  • LAJane

    It does hurt like crazy! Had enough of those in my dance career that I actually can’t watch those replay moments. Pain memory eek eek eek! Hope the ligaments weren’t yanked too bad…for a shorter recovery.

  • Chipdip

    Did you get a chance to ask Jeremy not to resign with the Lakers?

  • Brent Yen

    AS voting has ended…Does that mean Kobe will not play much from now on?

  • CJSHYY

    I think Lin should get pay more than 5M bc his marketing value can add up more than Young… I really think he will get a good contract from Lakers bc if they want to put him for marketing… Plus Lin looks really relax to me in his contract year.

  • Brent Yen

    Top priority for LAL seems to be signing 2 MAX players..at least one in this summer. So….whatever remains……I hope Lin gets a lot of it…that is assuming Lin stays.

  • JJ Hui

    LOL! It is hard to tell from photo, may be he is full of wrinkles when get nearer!

  • Brent Yen

    Boozer is suffering on his triceps injury. I hope that means he will push less…..

  • LAJane

    We’ve had some good threads on this topic in the recent past. Lot of opinion that whatever baloney Scott might say, he’s too much of a control freak to want Nash around and that he’s been encouraged to stay away. Lots of political agendas in the Lakers org – Jeannie vs. bro vs. Kobe vs. Scott vs. managing fan constituencies. Nash is an additional unwanted influence in this tangled web. So any advice and counsel he gives to whoever is going to be quiet and mostly out of sight.

  • no =) Unfortunately KHuang couldn’t make it because he had to help someone out

  • Brent Yen

    Do they just ban Lin fans like CF did?

  • LAJane

    I wish it were only dumbness, ’cause that could possibly be educated. I think it’s deliberate. He doesn’t want anybody else’s fingers in the pie.

  • LOL … the situation wouldn’t allow us to ask tough questions due to many LA PR people. @Jeremiah had a similar question but wisely withheld it.

    My mission was to deliver the Thank You card to Jeremy safely.
    Dangerous questions would’ve endangered that mission hehe..

  • Brent Yen

    Starting Clarkson? JK……….at least they made the group right this time…lol
    https://twitter.com/LakersReporter/status/557616425679216640

  • grover chang

    I don’t think Lin would want to stay if Scott and/or Kobe stay. The Knicks have limited cap room and star players have not shown interest in going to NY. what are the chances Lin returns to N.Y.?

  • CJSHYY

    Or maybe w/o Kobe they will start Lin/Young/Davis.

  • joyce ward
  • LAJane

    He’s not. Just pure hypocritical PR while in Nash’s old territory. Not gonna dis the guy whose pic is still plastered in the arena.

  • LAJane

    Don’t hold your breath yet.

  • LAJane

    Loved the short and sweet bromance moment with Dragic at the start. He’s got friends πŸ˜€

  • joyce ward

    Asking how is it working with kobe. LOL

  • JoeTeam

    good point, maybe the goal was making ASG % (has he been AS every year? dunno, just a thought)

  • LAJane

    I really don’t think he wants Nash around at all. I think those are empty PR words. He’s a control freak who doesn’t want another respected expert adding his two cents to this already dysfunctional and tangled mess.

  • joyce ward
  • JJ Hui

    One time a camera accidentaly pointed on Lin in the locker room when he just came out from shower and was changing, he has a very nice V-shape body from shoulder to waist, but on the court he wears some protective vest and looking straighter from the shoulder down.
    You know how to appreciate V shape body compared to straight down from shoulder or belly bigger than any part of the body, right? LOL!

  • LAJane

    Yeah LOL…and they have a laugh about it!

  • joyce ward
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I feel bad for his teammates like a bad relationship but refuse to end so they can move on.

  • LAJane

    So our all caps curmudgeon is really a Good Samaritan! Why is that not a surprise πŸ™‚ But sorry to miss his eyeball commentary.

  • joyce ward
  • LAJane

    Hah…can you imagine how surprising and frustrating for HIM to find himself saying that!

  • JoeTeam

    An angry uncle?

  • Dorothy

    Are they trying to set up the mood that Clarkson starting over Lin by sending this out?

  • JoeTeam

    the call was on Hill, luckily, but still imagined.

  • CJSHYY

    What is this all about? Clarkson played so bad last night… smh! Hate this team.

  • JoeTeam

    balance in life!

  • JJ Hui

    Psalm said KHuang didnt go to the game.:)

  • JoeTeam

    great vision that came true!

  • Quite good b/w Ed and Jeremy, I think. After a blown play, I saw Jeremy encouraged Ed and talked how Jeremy wanted things should be (I think) or just discussed it. I didn’t see much with Ellington but I could’ve missed it

  • JoeTeam

    why not they need some more ‘moves’ to continue the losing streak.

  • JJ Hui

    They talked quite a few times before the tip off. Seems like they are friends though.

  • BTW, Ed Davis is a good humble guy.
    At the tunnel I wished him the best for the game and he responded “Thank you, I appreciate it” and he looked like he meant it.

    Tarik Black was also good in patiently signing many stuff. A bit more intimidating.
    Sacre only signed one side of the tunnel but I don’t blame him coz he’s not getting much PT with Tarik’s emergence.

  • ok, I’ll try to find time in the evening then need some editing, etc.

  • pandaboy99

    Anybody who watched clarkson play yesterday you would know that hes not ready for the start, the game was practically blown wide open when he was on the court in the third.

  • JoeTeam

    Maybe just kidding around about McHale.

  • JoeTeam

    nice to read about the crowd response to refs. Something has to change, vid don’t lie. That Lin/Hill phantom foul called on Hill was easy to spot by any casual observer.

  • Dorothy

    well, with BS anything can happen. No one thought Price in any way is better than Lin, but BS can make up stories. Nothing BS does make sense. So, if that happens, I would not be surprised.

  • Briiick

    Tank vs starter vs bench

  • JoeTeam

    at 35 sec, I thought that was a screen but really, E.D. did nothing and IT was screened by Mk Morris. No wonder we don’t see this more often.

  • JW

    BS is never concerned when it comes to KB.

    https://twitter.com/LakersReporter/status/557629613082693633

  • blubell

    If you value our friendship, I’d suggest you do it now… lol, jk. I can’t wait!

  • JW

    Lin should’ve dribbled thru. He was already past the basket. Easy block by Clarkson. Not much lift to jump back towards the basket to protect the ball.

  • CJSHYY

    See Kobe will play but just didn’t want to do it w teammates.. I guess Kobe still didn’t want Lin to start… so if Price can’t play tomorrow then maybe they really will use Clarkson.. that’s why they keep promoting him today…? smh!

  • joyce ward

    They always post crap like this. I notice no pictures came after that because lin started turn it up and of course you won’t see that

  • JW

    They didn’t say who won the 3on3s then.

    https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/557626126450032641

  • CJSHYY

    Where’s Lin?

  • Brent Yen

    I do not feel Lin was serious at all….LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Working hard some where

  • joyce ward

    No they didn”t, probably lin team. Where is lin/davis?

  • JW

    davis is standing in the back drinking water. Young is also on Lin’s team sucking on water too.

  • BobbyH

    Let it so. It is better Lin playing in 2nd unit freely, better than Kobe’s ball boy.

    This will also show that Lakers’ so called PG starter is only a placeholder, nothing more.

  • JW

    I don’t know. from the sound of previous practice scrimmages, they get pretty serious trying to win.

  • I promised to upload the Thank You card but you’ve probably seen it on the twitter picture (under Lin’s sandwich) LOL

    https://twitter.com/linspiredinca/status/557441561361797120

    This was when Q&A was over and Lin was gathering his stuff to go back inside.
    Suns PR person just handed the Thank You card.
    Lin actually brought the sandwich out before the Q&A but he didn’t have a chance to eat it so he brought it back inside after Q&A

    And attached is the snapshot of the Thank You card showing the verse to stay strong and courageous (one of his favorite verse Joshua 1:9), the symbolic 3000 Career Point milestone by Librafree and the awesome DuckLin cartoon by Garycgy.

    I managed to get Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black to sign it for Jeremy, score! (no picture taken)
    Ryan Kelly was a little confused by the request but he was kind to get along with it πŸ˜€

    Note: On the back of the Thank You card, there were encouraging words from us getting his back no matter what the results and hoping him to stay strong and courageous, stay smiling. And we wanted to show our love and support to him during this tough time in LA. There were confidential donor names so I can’t post it for privacy. But trust me it’s good stuff hehe..

  • Acbc

    This shows how low the BS system is when lin actually preferred Machale’s bad system. The only reason why it worked better is Rox had better spacing with emphasis on 3s.

  • CJSHYY

    I think it’s Lin’s team that’s why they didn’t say it…. If it’s skin team won then they would say it.

  • Brent Yen

    Could be….but Lin looks like he WALKED in to the paint…LOL

  • BobbyH

    BS’s next diss when discuss starting Clarkson over Lin: Not that Lin is slow. But Clarkson is athletic.

  • CJSHYY

    I believe he will play… that’s why Lin back to bench jersey.

    LOL another 17ast game? No thanks

  • CJSHYY

    But when?

  • Brent Yen

    This is one of the problem for LAL. Their big was never high or low. Hence the defense was always leaking both ways…

  • blubell
  • blubell

    No thanks or no tanks?

  • Brent Yen

    They meant the same….

  • CJSHYY

    So no more next season? Wow!

  • cali7

    There is a complete disconnect Btwn kobe being able to play and kobe being able to play with the team and build chemistry. Scott only cares about the former.

    He didn’t sound ready from Byron’s comments.

  • Lymania

    Nice and cute smile you got there, psalm.
    But I gotta give it to this man in the white circle, who SCORE the BEST expression in this group pic!

  • CJSHYY

    So you watched his interview today? What about Kobe?

  • Rick Johnson
  • LAJane

    I noticed a card under his sandwich from the earlier post and assumed it must be “ours”. The whole thing is just AWESOME! Fantastic job, Psalm. (And if jlinportal wasn’t on his/family/friends/agents radar before, it will be now! Nice to know on this civil, smart, funny, and supremely positive site they will find both bball smarts and love!)

  • grover chang

    Kobe is in great shape but his inconsistent schedule is going to confuse his muscles. I expect Kobe to pull a muscle soon and be out for weeks. Then Lin gets more minutes and Lakers lose their lottery pick.

  • Lilly Chen

    Wow, this is awesome! I’m so happy you got to talk to him and give him the thank you card. I’m sure Jeremy was blown away from your and everyone’s gratitude. Thanks for sharing your story and pics! Can’t wait to see your videos πŸ™‚

    Talking about Lin involved in the future of Lakers. Araz Markhazi hated JLin before but now acknowledges now that Lin could be a good piece.

  • JW

    not really a glowing endorsement. but i guess it’s a start

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Stay home Kobe. Give your teammates 100% at the time not 15%.

  • Rick Johnson

    It’s always excuses: “he played poorly because he’s too fatigued”, then he played poorly because “he’s rested too much and he’s rusty”.

  • Thanks. Great observant eyes you have there. We all really pulled in our contribution. Awesome that we did it collectively =)

    Believe me. I’m glad the card was passed on because it wasn’t guaranteed. They really prioritized security between fans and Jeremy. At least 3 layers of people to talk to before the card was finally passed on to Lin.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Wow big change usually happens after the press are out there talking about it.

  • Thanks, Lilly. Glad it really encouraged both Jeremy and his great fans =)
    I hope I got some good clips since I haven’t checked all that’s in there. But I’ve got some of Lin talking in Q&A plus some pics of teammates/coaches interaction. Stay tuned! It might take some time to work on it

  • webattorney

    As long as it wasn’t in a real game . . .

  • webattorney

    Dragic telling Lin “Just in case I might come to Lakers to start at PG spot, no hard feelings.”

    Ah, you should have made a notation next to “webattorney”, stating “A critical fan”.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • LAJane

    Good things find their rightful place πŸ™‚

  • CJSHYY

    It’s so funny why they didn’t say Johnson or Ellington but Davis & Kobe so far behind?! LOL!

  • Interestingly, Markazi also concluded by saying he wished Lakers will get Top 5 pick this year + rebuild next year despite stating this team sans Kobe has been competitive against Top teams in the West.

    Everyone knows it’s better for Lakers to tank to get Top 5 pick but it’s good to hear honest analysis that the team minus Kobe is better than last year’s team plus Kobe can’t be lock-down defender (Opp FG% 6%> their average vs Kobe)

  • Rick Johnson
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks for bringing it out. I also had my suspicious when I first looked at the pics. The more I looked, the more I suspected I must say. Glad Psalm confirmed this while I was sleeping as usual:-) Good things often came out when I was occupied:-)

  • So we may have 2 headlines:
    “Ageless Kobe + One-arm Price came to play!”
    or
    “Kobe + Price still need their beauty rest”

    I’d have a wild guess it will be the 2nd one as Byron continues to audition the post-Kobe starting lineup before he makes announcement of lineup shuffle soon.

  • joyce ward

    I am calling it right now, kobe seems ok to retire because he has offers from ESPN to do sorta what Stuart Scott did.He had a syndicated show that talked-about sports in general. Stuart added his own flare to the program. Most importantly scott worked alone. .and the plot thickens

    Lin: it’s only Axe..

  • bolero

    who’s the asian lady. I always see her with the lakers.

  • Rick Johnson

    Don’t think they were playing hard. Usually Davis would follow Lin and go in hard for the rebound and put that back. Here he just pulls up and slowly jogs.

  • Rick Johnson
  • webattorney

    Read about it also. Kobe wouldn’t get along with most guests or co-workers. Although intelligent, Kobe is not the right for this kind of job. He would get bored unless people talked about HIM.

  • good reminder! Let me do it there before I forgot :>

  • Chipdip

    Lin wanted to give the ref a foul call … hahaha

  • Briiick

    Is there a technical way that Kobe gets the money and LAL open up the cap room ? I guess so, then it is up to the owners willing to cough up 25million.

    Maybe he could retire and the Lakers would then hire him as an assistant coach or an adviser or something.

    I’m sure there is, tell him they want to waive him and he can choose to either get traded to a team he wants or retire.

    So during the game yesterday, Anthony F. Irwin, a sports writer, tweeted this about Lin. What is your take on? Is Lin really doing that BAD that he won’t be in the league next season and China is the only option for Lin? Are we as Lin fans delusional? https://twitter.com/AnthonyIrwinNBA/status/557390066469703681

  • Brent Yen

    I think he will be out of the league as a writer 1st…..lol so ridiculous…

    Sounds like a hater tweet to me.

  • Brent Yen

    This is beyond hate…lol

  • Bearness

    Really a dumb comment. By the way, somehow I don’t really see Lin playing in Chinese league, even in his twilight years.

  • CJSHYY

    Why needs to care about someone’s tweet & only got 2 favor?

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t even need to argue w him bc the more you do the more he will tweet hate on Lin.

  • JoeTeam

    I would say yes, sometime in the future. Why not, lots of good ppl and money out there, so maybe when NBA makes a move there Lin will be a flagship. For now, I would imagine well promoted summer leagues, who knows. OP here not sure about why she asks.

  • CJSHYY

    Just check his tweet & not that many people RT or Favor… so he probably tried to use Lin as the attention for himself. Just forget about him. He is nobody.

  • Brent Yen

    Of course….

  • Bearness

    I’m not saying he shouldn’t or has a reason not to. I don’t see it though. I guess just gut feeling.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks!

  • Nhawj44

    It may only have 2 favors but there was quite a discussion going on under the tweet

  • Brent Yen

    That is his purpose…I would say

    After a great game of double-double by Jeremy in PHX, let’s hope it continues with more chemistry with his teammates.

    Despite the defensive shortcomings by the bigs which will be the Achilles heel or secret weapon of tanking (whichever one we want to see it), let’s hope JLin continues to thrive in his facilitator role with flirting with more double-double. 12pts/7asts average would look quite good in a Byron system that doesn’t feature his strength for the Free Agency.

    Let’s also hope JLin is also charged by our Thank You card and show of support by hundreds of Lin fans in Phoenix Q&A.
    Who knows if Jeremy likes to use the Thank You card for his sandwich tray from now on?
    LOL

  • CJSHYY

    Every player will have the hater like this… He is nobody so …

  • Guest

    After tweeting back and forth with him and his colleague, they said that it was a “joke”. However, Mr. Irwin stated that he will write an article to back it up.. so i guess, we’ll see what the article says. It’s funny how, we are called “crazy” Lin fans and yet they are the one who made troll tweets like that.

  • Brent is right. It’s quite an instigating question designed to have a heated debate.

    The right response should be, “It depends if the rest of coaches in the league also think Price should start over Lin” I just tweeted it :>

  • Nhawj44

    I think Mr. Irwin is actually a writer for Rants Sports…I think. That’s what I get when I googled him anyway. After tweeting back and forth with him and his colleague, they said that

  • Grace

    I quickly took a peek at his profile on Twitter & FB and he does not have many followers. I don’t think his opinion is relevant.

  • spiderman

    Wish she could knock some sense into Kobe lol

  • Nhawj44

    He’s a sports writer and I think I even saw him on tv as well..not sure how much impact he will have but, I had wanted to know his reasons so we did have a few tweets going. He said that he will write an article to back up so we’ll see.

  • CJSHYY

    Exactly. I think he picked Lin up on purpose bc he knows lots of Lin’s fans just google and got to him… he wants attention…

  • Nhawj44

    I thought so, too, but I didn’t want to call him that directly…although, I was tempted. lol. I tried to remain as respectful as possible since as Lin fans we already have a bad reputation.

  • Grace

    Maybe insinuate that if he wants to be a popular writer, he needs to support JLin. :o)

  • Brent Yen

    I do not really care about our reputation. But I guess respect is needed….

  • 1mtoldman

    rant sports has done major hatchet jobs on lin before, calling him one of the ten worst something or others, i forgot. its not a credible real sports site. its a like wise-guy attack site. “rant”….get it?

  • Briiick

    There are numerous haters out there who need attention to continue to hate.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    MR. BRYANT, YOU OWN IT TO THE BUSSES.

  • Nhawj44

    I thought I deleted this since I reposted it below under the right heading. πŸ™ Still trying to find my way and how to post here. sorry if I appeared a little lost.

  • Nhawj44

    Thank you for being our voices and represent us, Lin Fans, well yesterday! It truly wonderful seeing the pictures and hearing the reports. And yes, let’s all pray that JLin will continue to do well the rest of the season, regardless, whether he comes off bench or starts. Better things are to come!!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Nhawj44

    Got it!!!! LOL…I guess, I was a fool and fell for it, didn’t I???? LOL!!! On common, you can say it ! πŸ˜‰

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s a shame for anyone or even ESPN to call this guy is an expert. Need to say no more.

  • BobbyH

    Period.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s ok. You will get used to it soon:-) New thread is up: http://www.jlinportal.com/g43-lal-nop-pregame-threadpoll/

  • JoeTeam

    He probably will after all his NBA struggles are done, 10+ years or as part of NBA expansion (if not for league promotion). Right now though, he’s doing fine as a top PG IMO who can make a difference in any game.

  • Nhawj44

    For some people reputation is just as important or equals respect and if we lost respect then anything we say will be meaningless. However, that doesn’t mean i would keep quiet either … LOL. *sigh* and THAT’S my downfall unfortunately. lol

  • stam

    The NBA would be a lot fairer and the referees would be much less inclined to be biased if they created a separate investigative committee that keeps tracks of referees and their previous track record and allows for people to report biased calls. They would have the power to fine referees and fire them. This will eliminate super star calls and give Lin a huge advantage because of all the non/phantom calls. I believe that he would drive a ton more if he knew he would be fairly officiated.

  • Paul Villarreal

    You’re welcome. You and everyone else is doing great work here and really happy you and others got to go out and see that hard work pay off in person with the man himself. Nice! :o))

  • Paul Villarreal

    I’m here all the time, Maknusia. I just don’t post. Until now! πŸ˜‰

  • Paul Villarreal

    Thanks sws! πŸ™‚

  • Carol Tiu

    Knicks likes giving away good players.

  • Sophie Paris

    Not fun… We need to win against Rox once again, it’s the last match up I believe.

  • Linja

    Peer-pressure Dissing.

  • Sophie Paris

    Aww and I was liking that guy… guess what not anymore. It wasn’t even funny.

  • CJSHYY

    We don’t click or leave comments for these trash Lin articles bc we don’t want to help them to get what they want… reading rate.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Don’t click it for them. smh!

  • JJ Hui

    He is not even sharp looking! Just ignore him!

  • jolno

    Irwin gonna write about NBA tomorrow? Or flipping burgers?

    Sorry I have to do it, this guy is beyond ridiculous. The blatant racism is so strong with this tweet.

  • if we’re treated with another double-double like performance tomorrow, that would be worth it, Paul =D

    Thanks for all the hard work that you do with the always-excellent videos!
    I haven’t forgotten about the PFV Corner idea here so I’m still contemplating how to make the corner nice and cozy enough. I’ve got the dedicated video list idea but need more forum-like features to make it work. Stay tuned =>

  • You’re welcome and Amen, Sista! =)

  • JC

    One thing I know, he’s going to need ‘lin’ in his tweet for it to be close to relevant

  • Acbc

    It’s really funny how Joyce described the nerdy brainy jock which pretty much discribed me in high school. I’ve had my share of light weight cute blondes that came and sat on my lap at parties, none of whom attracted me the slightest.

    My wife used to complain about her muscular legs and athletic body, but that was part of her charm to me. That and her self assured independence has been the magic that has kept me interested long after the fading of youth and beauty. She’s like a fine grape vintage that keeps getting better with age.

  • Maknusia

    i guess, I missed this one…its taken down πŸ™

  • Marie Simon

    I wonder if you already released the video for Q & A ?? would you post it soon ? Thanks.

  • I’m planning to find time to do it sometime today =)

  • Marie Simon

    that was a quick reply, hope I can easily find it . Thank You & take your time:)

  • Marie Simon

    wow, they have to scrutinize the card before it got to his hands!!! Amazing , am so proud to be a part of this movement for all our love to Jeremy!

  • JoeTeam

    What you write about … ah, the depth and joys of life. Since you complimented your wife publicly, you get more Lin fan time on the boards πŸ™‚

    We find it (truth, goodness, what we value) everywhere and …

    Now, I have a question for your philosophical view – Lin is just one of those who strives who makes it big one day, actually pretty early. How does that fuel a lifetime of that, how do we maintain our freshness to keep at the working formula, and how do we stay true even with the spoils of success (selective attention being put on Porches to Teslas, ‘collecting’ material or social prized, etc.? How do we make it in the first place (what you coach your kids)? etc that is worth much more than the box score.

  • Acbc

    It’s pretty much like that bible passage that we’ve been talking about keeping the eyes on the prize. It’s definately not easy. My wife and I could do better at it just like everyone else. The measure isn’t how badly we fail or even how good we are at it. The measure is how much we improve each day. That’s the prize we should seek. If we do then we can never be good enough or bad enough. We can only be trying enough.

    Lin seems well focussed on the true prize and won’t be tempted by the trappings of success. It’s a scary thing to put our faith into someone so young and with more fans comes more expectations and mental pressure to never fall. But if he does, I hope we all would be first to forgive him and not judge him for sub coming to being a human being. Like I said, the real prize is that we keep trying to become the best we could be. Only God is perfect, even Christ had his human moments once he became human. It’s not failure that defines us, it’s how we pick ourselves up every time we do.

  • JoeTeam

    we have to rely on today’s youth, acbc. That’s the nature of passing it on. Yet. it does seem we’ve watered it all down in our paper chase … for money and riches. It must have been like that in our gen … hard find people who have what it takes to take the prize forward. Hence the whole idea of not passing on until the job is done …
