G47 CHI@ LAL Game Thread

Jeremy received 28 min and 23 min following a DNP. How will the 3rd game be any different?

We’re still monitoring Lin’s agent (Roger Montgomery) tweet about Victory is certain.

It might look to translate to  20-30min as long as Lakers is losing to achieve the Tanking purpose. Will Linsanity game be allowed to resurface?

All it takes are multiple screens and good shooting rhythm from JLin without BScott killing the momentum

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

Go JLin!  😎

    test

  • Maknusia

    Second!!!!

  • Jedi

    Woke up just to write 3rd. Now going back to bed.

  • Maknusia

    Make sure your dream is about Jeremy playing his style of BB. Go Lin

  • Jedi

    Haha, pretty umm ‘unmanly’ to dream about Jeremy. It’s bad enough I think about him so much when I’m awake.

  • Michael

    That was fast.

  • Maknusia

    Naa, I think he haunts you 24X7….try to record your dream now to verify! 🙂

  • JJ Hui

    Lady first! LOL!

  • Michael

    You are the First Lady.

  • leeda harun

    Hello everyone:-)

  • JJ Hui

    LOL!

  • Michael

    Hi there.

  • Rick Johnson
  • leeda harun

    hi back, Micheal

  • what’s up, @disqus_HmSLGZ4iV2:disqus?

    how’s the sleep-typing going? =>

  • I activated the Chat on the bottom right but it probably doesn’t work on mobile devices.
    Only on laptop/PCs

    BTW It’s only for members so no trolling 😀

  • Michael

    Waiting for the game. And I am wide awake ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ

  • Finally! Linsanity, baby!

  • chan c

    Let’s go JLin!

  • Maknusia

    hi front, Michael

  • hellooo 🙂

  • Maknusia

    I had a flat tire today, would that make any difference in Lin’s game?!…wondering..hmmm

  • yes, it means Maxxis tire threatened Lakers to pull their sponsorship if they don’t see Linsanity soon! LOL

  • chan c

    Knicks are being massacred by the Pacers.Would that make any difference in Lin’s game?! hmmm 🙂

  • Maknusia

    Great News!…Dont mind getting more flats…lol

  • Maknusia

    Yes…then the consideration on Lin would come higher…maybe 🙂
    Melo had started to think of Linsanity…probably the rest would follow suit

  • Michael

    No double teaming now…

  • Michael

    Were you trying to block his shot while he was dunking on you? I’d say that was a gutsy dream.

  • Allen Wayne

    Is it the front or rear tire?

  • 1mtoldman

    nicks were up 7 after the first quarter. someone must have got the message to them that this game was the most important game tonite 2 lose to secure tanking success according to “tankathon”.

  • 1mtoldman

    is it a maxxis tire?

  • leeda harun

    I wonder why of all the sudden he remembered Linsanity

  • chan c

    he he .. they are now only a few games behind the Lakers

  • Rick Johnson

    Will be interesting to see who can tank better the Knicks or the Lakers.

  • 1mtoldman

    lakers are doing better at the moment. but the ultimate test will be the tank bowl sunday, sunday, sunday.

  • Rick Johnson

    JLin has his best games at MSG. BScott will have to DNP-CD again.

  • Maknusia

    we need triple now

  • Maknusia

    It was a GoodYear!

  • Maknusia

    rear, left

  • joyce ward

    I guess Mitch was at practice today. I wander what brought him out. Also the junk about Nash might rejoin the team soon, it a PR ploy. It is obvious that Nash/Scott had some kind of falling out. Nash does not want to help him. I bet Lin is in contact with.

  • Rick Johnson

    I could see why Nash wouldn’t want to be associated with a brainless coach and a tanking team. It could besmirch his reputation if he every wanted to coach.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Mitch was in the practice today. I guess it’s for PR time on report about Kobe, trade, & future…But I really think the biggest message it’s we want the top 5 draft so we are tanking…LOL!

  • Joe what do you know

    Just pass the rock out mate!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Had one yesterday!. Getting bad luck outta way.

  • Sophie Paris

    Keep your bad luck for yourself lol

  • Maknusia

    I thought thats a good way to brush off the bad luck….so Jeremy would have a good game

  • John Lee

    In countdown order…

  • BobbyH

    If it is Linsanity, keep the tire. If not, send it to BS.

  • Sophie Paris

    Maybe… If so you’ll have to keep going you know haha

  • Maknusia

    will do! lol

  • John Lee

    The Chinese believe broken items means owner averted bad luck (object being sacrificed as the proxy), especially with jade jewelry/items. Maybe crystals too.

    To Lin fans, Maxxis tire would mean the same, I suppose.

  • Sophie Paris

    Try Michelin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Not me. It’s just a matter of fact of life:-)

  • 1mtoldman

    not titan?

  • Maknusia

    any sponsors!?

  • 1mtoldman

    la tankers number fun: today’s number is

    5.4.

    the ave. number of points per game for the season for the projected starters not named hill tonite for the tankers.

  • Sophie Paris

    Titanic? lol

  • 1mtoldman

    there is a history between titan tires and france, since you mention the french brand michelin i thought maybe you are familiar with.

  • John Lee

    Current ranking of the best tankers in the league:

    1. Minnesota Timberwolves: 8-37 – 17.8% W
    2. New York Knicks: 9-38 – 19.1% W
    3. Philadelphia 76rs: 9-37 – 19.6% W
    4. Los Angeles Lakers: 12-34 – 26.1% W
    5. Orlando Magic 15-34 – 30.6% W

    Lakers seem to sit comfortably in the 4th place, but has some really tough competition to crack into top (or bottom) 3 to better protect their top 5 pick from Phoenix. I think Mitch will sleep better if Lakers can out-tank the Knicks.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Nash is a real hall of famer not like Kobe Bryant. Steve Nash has lots of integrity that Kobe doesn’t have.

    I found Kobe and Byron despicable in their selfish plot against teammates. They sought glory but Kobe couldn’t even play in the ASG this year. This could have been Kobe’s last ASG but it is not to be. Kobe and Byron had ruined their reputations by themselves. Thank God, they got what they deserve, a shameful season. It will goes down in history that Kobe is the hall of shamer in his last seasons.

    Byron Scott is the most despicable one with his way of fixing games.

    There are many ways to look for talents in basketball. Tanking is the worst. Teams should look further from the draft. Tanking teams don’t necessary get what they want. All these teams need is a good coach; the coach who can help the players to play at their best. Good players will gather around good teams.

    Milwaukee is recovering very fast under the new coach Jason Kidd. Brooklyn is failing fast and is getting worse. This year Milwaukee is sure to make the playoff but the Nets is going downhill. NY must be cursed for basketball. Knicks and Nets are junk teams.

    Lakers under Byron sunk deep and deeper. It would be a joke if all they got from tanking this season is just a mediocre draft choice. All is for nothing. Lakers w/o Lin will be unwatchable.

  • Sophie Paris

    Didn’t know, it isn’t assimiliated with Goodyear?

  • John Lee

    Interesting, Toney Douglas (pick 29) and Patrick Beverley (pick 42) were both drafted by Lakers in 2009.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Look for Lin’s smile as Lakers clown around …

    https://twitter.com/Librafree/status/561000873023647744

  • John Lee

    Denver just lost to Memphis by 30 points, 69-99. Hopefully Brian Shaw is on his way out in favor of D’Antoni, so that Lin can join Faried. No Reggie Jackson please.

    Is it a coincidence that former Lakers guards make poor coaches? Shaw, BS, Fisher…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The opportunity of getting the best draft choice for Lakers is still slim even if they have tanked successfully. Heaven forbidden for teams working in evil manner to get what they want. They would probably drop even more in shame. I believe at the end Byron and Bryant would get what they deserve, a shameful record.

    By tanking, the Lakers would alienate their fans even more and finally would give in to the Clippers.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    As long as Kobe is in the team, Lakers will waste draft choices and talents.

  • John Lee

    Actually, pretty good chance to get top five it team is in bottom three. Nothing’s guaranteed of course, but Mitch has got to try. It’d be cosmic justice if Lakers tank out successfully and still lost the pick to Phoenix, I know I’d celebrate. 🙂

  • What’s the new slogan? #Holdat?
    Isn’t that one of Boozer’s catchphrases?

  • Hans

    These big budget teams have great scouts. I think the Knicks organization know how to draft and find talents very well. They just don’t have the patience to develop them into proper building blocks.

  • 1mtoldman

    “What’s the difference between Brian Shaw,Derek Fisher,and Byron Scott? Nothing,they are all terrible coaches coming out of the Laker tree.”

    saw this on a nuggets game comment board 2nite. so yer not da only one thinking dat.
    More

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Me too! I can drink to that.
    The system of lottery picks doesn’t necessarily guarantee Lakers to get their first round pick from Phoenix next season. Byron and Kobe has been trying to fix games to make Kobe look good. However they all end up to what they deserve; shame! May justice prevails at the end and all Lakers get is just an unprecedented shameful team record.

  • kittyhead

    They played triangle offense and that’s out of date in the NBA.

  • 1mtoldman

    all 4 of the games tonite rated significant to tank ratings by “tankathon”; the other 3 teams needing to lose already lost (and lost badly in deep tanking fashion).

    so the lakers need to keep pace as well.

  • Maknusia

    Lets GO…GO LIN

  • orLinaryjoe

    That’s what mine was

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Coaches should be primarily responsible for wins or losses but Byron Scott is one coach who has never assumed responsibility. He just brags his way into coaching. All talks and no substance. The best he has achieved is to cause injuries for his players with his so called tough practices. He aint tough. He’s just a loser with the worst losing record for any coach in the last 5 years.

  • chan c

    Sacre starting in this Lakers team is mind boggling

  • Maknusia

    I’m always impressed when a Big hits a 3!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yeah! Laker fans should start complaining like Knicks fans

  • John Lee

    chan buddy, it’s time to keep up and start thinking in tanking terms. Mitch himself already admitted as much earlier today.

  • 1mtoldman

    france wanted titan to pick up a failed goodyear plant/ titan pres. bashed french workers. created quite a stir.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Why didn’t Jordan Hill step a few feet further to try for 3 instead of long 2s; it’s mind boggling too.

  • occupatio

    lin gets his face scraped all the time. doesnt get that call like rose

  • Maknusia

    lol, I dont think Hill has the stroke

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Out of the first 5 shots, the Lakers tried 3 3-pointers.

  • chan c

    oh yeah. thanks buddy. i’ll try very hard to follow your advice 🙂

  • Maknusia

    Boozer is in early! Sacre on foul trouble

  • Maknusia

    Q1 looks similar to last game, coming in aggressive..good

  • BobbyH

    Should we root for Lakers to win or lose? I am confused now.

  • Boozer with 4 quick points.
    Ready to prove Bulls was wrong to let him go.

    I can see a lot of assists from Lin to Boozer tonight!

  • occupatio

    keep life simple. root for not-ugly basketball.

  • Briiick

    Kobe is known for calling his more talented teammates soft and driving them out of town. Melo is also known for driving talents out of his team. That is why the two teams are spiraling down fast. Harden is doing similar things and his team will join the above two very soon.

  • chan c

    put some paper bags on their heads and sit on the front row

  • 1mtoldman

    as near as i can tell from laker fan sites almost all laker fans are entirely down with and ok with this tanking strategy and have no problem with it support it and see it as the right thing to do. dont want to win. want team to lose so that they can get the lottery pick.

    and as pointed out on here elsewhere with kupchak’s backhanded comments today the entire organization seems to be down with it too.

  • Lin complained about the no-call

  • orLinaryjoe

    Low percentage bball. Or low iq

  • occupatio

    eff these refs

  • chan c

    that’s it. be aggressive..

  • chan c

    yeah baby!!

  • BobbyH

    Mid range.

  • sport

    Lin not getting fouls calls!

  • chan c

    root for Lin! 🙂

  • sport

    Don’t care just root for Lin!

  • Swish!!

  • occupatio

    not going to give me calls in the lane? i’ll shoot over you all instead

  • kittyhead

    as usual!

  • Hans

    The Bulls are getting good looks with good passing, the shots are just not falling. if they continue to do this, they’ll make a comeback really soon. Mean while, Clarkson’s D is making Rose like the pre-injury Rose.

  • bolero

    Butler on Lin . Respect.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is getting better in his step back jump shots. We haven’t seen much of these in Houston.

  • occupatio

    true

  • Charlie Sun

    That was pretty

  • chan c

    finger roll baby!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin!

  • Maknusia

    Nice…Aggressive…4pts!

  • sport

    Nice, running right down the middle!

  • Who is this nice SG, JLin? LOL

  • Maknusia

    Comeon need to limit the TOs

  • orLinaryjoe

    Keep it. Balance!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clarkson ‘s alley ho doesn’t work.

  • bolero

    They know what Lin can do.

  • sport

    Would’ve been a highlight if he made it.

  • Brent Yen

    Bad pass

  • chan c

    let Lin – Davis do it!

  • sport

    Yes Lin is the SG just be glad Clarkson is passing him the ball!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clarkson ran a horrible fast break1

  • John Lee

    Easy, root for good Lin stats and Lakers’ loss.

  • Charlie Sun

    Clarkson plays a full quarter again. Must be nice having a coach support you

  • Brent Yen

    Lin really trips a lot after that switch to Adidas…

  • Maknusia

    Its Clarkson tryout time…. so its expected

  • occupatio

    ok might as well root for bulls. lakers bball is so ugly

  • John Lee

    Makes Lin look good in front of fans, who know very clearly who brings home the alley oops…AND the free tacos!

  • sport

    Lin with 4 points in 5 minutes, he needs to keep doing that!

  • orLinaryjoe

    I’ve decided that only the first half is worth watching. Tank second not worth it.

  • Brent Yen

    4 pts of that was not…lol

  • occupatio

    indeed

  • sport

    But Lakers are leading though.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yeah, must be the shoes, lol

  • John Lee

    Jordan Clarkson is no PG (but OK developing SG), and Wes Johnson is no NBA player.

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    Too bad JLin never got a full quarter tryout

  • Maknusia

    must be Lin?

  • BobbyH

    BS is no NBA coach.

  • Brent Yen

    U forgot to mention one man

  • Brent Yen

    Thank u

  • Clarkson is a rookie PG in training.
    Lin plays a lethal SG, but Byron is ready to suppress him if he’s too hot!

  • occupatio

    clarkson holds the ball too long even on non end-of-quarter possessions. somehow thats part of his ‘PG responsibilities’

  • FrankW

    Strange that they pass the ball to Lin now. Something is up.

  • BobbyH

    Welcome.

  • sport

    I actually like this. With an unselifsh PG that way Lin just focuses on scoring instead of passing too much! So tired of him passing and not looking to score! He really needs to change his mindset to become the Allstar he wants! Teams aren’t going to treat him well and he needs his PPG stats to prove it!

  • bolero

    Maybe showcasing lol.

  • orLinaryjoe

    No, never Lin.

  • chan c

    everybody seem to be trying out for this team. what with all the experimenting this coach is doing…

  • John Lee

    Roger Montgomery’s “victory is certain”? LOL

  • BobbyH

    Wait until 4Q.

  • occupatio

    where is joyce? lin is playing the way she wants

  • bolero

    Hmm. Showing Lin now.

  • Brent Yen

    He will stop after few mins

  • John Lee

    If truly so, we’d be able to tell from Stu’s sales pitch. 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Roger might have something on his sleeve. Let’s give him the benefit of doubt.

  • chan c

    what a pass…

  • occupatio

    seriously tho, lin got real mad about the 2 missed calls and just went super aggressive mode

  • John Lee

    Or be pulled by BS.

  • Charlie Sun

    Lin-Davis begins again

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That drive right in the middle for Lin is impressive and gutsy!

  • Charlie Sun

    Um… what was that Wes?

  • chan c

    what was that clarkson?

  • orLinaryjoe

    I like

  • Maknusia

    so no calls, is good?!

  • Charlie Sun

    JLIN!

  • blubell

    beautiful…

  • What a spectacular drive by Lin!

  • Maknusia

    nice…6pts! 1AST

  • BobbyH

    That’s how basketball should be played, everyone involved.

  • blubell

    uh oh… Jeremy is hot!

  • chan c

    mid range!

  • Maknusia

    Davis and Lin assisting each other!!!! 8pts!

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin-Davis play again

  • sport

    Lin just looking to score now! YES finally!!!

  • Lin is HOT!
    shooting I mean 😀

  • sport

    This lineup is working WOW!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    No, Lin getting agry like the Hulk!

  • blubell

    I see a big Smile!

  • sport

    Lin as SG with Clarkson as PG is working!!

  • Hans

    Jeremy is gonna be benched so soon for getting hot

  • chan c

    that smile… that smile… 🙂

  • Charlie Sun

    Lakers are feeling good. Time for BS to adjust accordingly…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What a change when Lin runs the point!
    You see the difference: the game flow!!!!!

  • chan c

    beautiful no look…

  • John Lee

    You’ve been hanging out with IJ17 recently? LOL

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin as Pg and Ellington as SG is better!

  • Joe what do you know

    Someone just fired an RPG rocket at the tank…

  • chan c

    million times true!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    VVVVVVVV

  • blubell
  • BobbyH

    TNT CEO.

  • sws94

    He’s playing wonderfully.

  • bolero

    Yup. Brooks fast. Good guy happy for him.

  • Pete Roces

    but the tank commander survived, so….

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Of course not! There are only 3 guards. He started the worst!

  • Charlie Sun

    If this pair continues to play, BS is only a few months late to figure it out

  • sport

    Opps haha you’re right Kwok!! haha that’s why Lin was scoring so easily XD

  • Tim Pham

    lakers probably using one game to show world they aren’t tanking, just to cover up the tank. Playing LIn to showcase him for trade???

  • blubell
  • sport

    So…is it just me or is this the REAL starting lineup of Lakers? O.o Anyone else glad Swaggy is out and chucking shots? Don’t mind when he’s hot but when he’s missing ouch!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    much more than clarkson in 1Q

  • chan c

    sshhhh…. don’ let the coach hear that

  • Carol Tiu

    BS stutters a lot as he gives fake pep talk.

  • Charlie Sun

    The bounces are in the Laker’s favor!

  • Sophie Paris

    It’s all that matters 😉

  • blubell

    J to Ed!

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin-Davis AGAIN!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is the strongest lineup for Lakers. BS hasn’t figured this out yet.

  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    Oh please, anyone could have called that in preseason

  • Charlie Sun

    Linsanity 2.0: Davis edition

  • Brent Yen

    Davis is only a post move away from a bigger contract

  • chan c

    but boozer is sent to bench now…

  • occupatio

    byron trying to win bc he doesnt want the lakers record for losing streak

  • Charlie Sun

    I’m going to wait to see how long Lin and Davis continue to play

  • ah.. we’re on the same wavelength!

  • sport

    LOL good point since Byron dislikes Magic and he obviously doesn’t want to break the losing record of the franchise!

  • Brent Yen

    Man, if lin wants, he really can rack up points quickly

  • Alaingrvis

    lin with a very good 11 minutes

  • Carol Tiu

    Must’ve begged Mitch to give him this one.

  • sport

    Not wants, he should!! When he’s passing too much it gets boring and ugly!

  • DLin

    Lin is done probably for half.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin much more productive than Clarkson!

  • joyce ward

    What happened

  • blubell

    Of course, the boneheaded substitution.

  • JoeTeam

    nothing, just time out and his shift might be over for the half.

  • Brent Yen

    Well..I have no control…..I wish this is 2k and I just kept pushing that scoring button..lol

  • John Lee

    Lin did well…THAT’s what happened.

  • orLinaryjoe

    No need to compare.

  • DLin

    BS – Linsanity killer happened

  • Charlie Sun

    So business as usual

  • Brent Yen

    His time is up….now clarkson

  • orLinaryjoe

    Push away!

  • occupatio

    i think its a good time to go to bathroom and release my bowels.

  • JoeTeam

    your kids are cuter today ha ha.

  • Charlie Sun

    I don’t think BS is trying to win. He’s too stubborn to change his ways.

  • John Lee

    Ed Davis crystal clear on what’s going on, loves playing with Jeremy!

  • Carol Tiu

    Old habits die hard.

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    You, my friend, don’t have any tanking talents whatsoever. 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    also same with boozer.

  • Charlie Sun

    Darn, I’ll never be Tank MVP!

  • Alaingrvis

    its expected

  • JoeTeam

    that is a tall order?

  • sport

    LOL We’d have Linsanity every night!

  • JW

    is bulls just having a bad night? why is LAL having their way with them? I thought Bulls are known for their defense.

  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    You have to compete first half only. Then MYSTERIOUSLY Empty tank

  • Keith

    Whenever Lin is benched. I come here.

  • 1mtoldman

    too early to tell pattern has been he trys to win in first half to make it look good; then makes choices clearing tanking in second. dont want it to be too obvious cause remember mitch says coaches and players have been instructed to try to win. (wink wink)

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    Was the look at the end, “Oh shoot, BS wants a chat”

  • Mr Chuckles

    Man, we voted for Lin on the player cam vote, just show Lin on the bench.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy can play the game and plays it well….A playoff contender will pick him up.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Tbe bench scored 30 and the starters scored 20.

  • JoeTeam

    please, it’s dinner time in the Bay.

  • sport

    Automatically tune out when Lin’s out back to watching my tv shows.

  • yeah, he saw something he despised LOL

  • blubell

    Great no look pass but… blown assist
    https://twitter.com/LakersSBN/status/561013860573151232

  • Pete Roces

    pray hard for that, the sooner he leaves the tank, the better.

  • 1mtoldman

    not this year.

  • occupatio

    im bored

  • 1mtoldman

    thats what i said below. thats the pattern since kobe went down

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin is leading in assists… again

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Ellington is proving that he can run PNR

  • Rick Johnson

    TNT announcers: Jordan Hill stay away from the jumpers. Stay in the paint. EXACTLY!!

  • Brent Yen

    Somehow no one is talking about nick young

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s actually Ellington running the point now; CXlarkson a non factor

  • Who? lol

  • sws94

    Ellington is a nice player. He is not only a catch and shoot player, he can create his own shot without chucking away all the time like Swaggy. The team looks better without their 2 ball hogs, Kobe and Swaggy. Even though Kobe passes, he’s still something of a ball hog when he does.

  • Brent Yen

    Lol

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    I’m very ok with this

  • Rick Johnson

    No defense chucker. Ellington better all around player

  • sport

    Great now D Rose passes Lin’s points, they ahd the same stats but Lin has only 12 minutes while D Rose has 14 minutes.

  • Charlie Sun

    Momentum beginning to shift?

  • JoeTeam

    boozer .. 2 misses, no D on Snell … 6 pts right there.

  • joyce ward

    It is all good. D Rose is suppose to have more points than lin. DRose is a starter.

  • Brent Yen

    He is like half half…his efficiency is too low when having to creat shots. But yes

  • JoeTeam

    booz, and he just arrested the fade.

  • Brent Yen

    Rose has a very ugly form….I guess he will tune it in the summer. His form was way better

  • Charlie Sun

    Critical 3rd quarter. Will the tank script continue? Or will there be something new?

  • Charlie Sun

    Yea, that 3 did not look good

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Ellington runs plays and does well without the ball.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Is this the Bulls that edged out Warriors the other nite?

  • JoeTeam

    he seemed much bulkier. Needs to lift for his knees (quads protect the ligaments).

  • Briiick

    BS is trying to win this one at least on the first half, trying to show he can do something more than tanking ?

  • sport

    Not when people see the game as D Rose vs Lin!

  • JJ Hui

    So now BS coach throw Ronnie Price to outer space and no minutes at all?

  • JoeTeam

    no butler, so I didn’t realize it at the time but was Mirotic there because of that?

  • Hans

    15 assists shared by 7 of 9 active players. good team ball. this is how Jeremy would like it. contagious team basketball

  • sport

    Nah just don’t want to break Magic Johnson’s losing record.

  • james brown

    given enough time and chemistry, JLIN will make Their players players as a team, only if they will buy in with the chemistry!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Chicago was caught off guard in the beginning. They thought Lakers would tank!

  • 1mtoldman

    point guard report for first half: clarkson/17 min/5 point/3 assists
    lin/12 min/8 points/3 assists
    price/0min/0pts/0 assists

    the head of the snake has been unceremoniously cut off.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott gave up on his head.

  • sport

    FO and Mitch stepped in?

  • Charlie Sun

    He wants to give Price a look on the bench. After all, he knows what JLin can do.

  • orLinaryjoe

    BS will play Lin less, so even score.

  • Brent Yen

    Trade closing?

  • JoeTeam

    starting … clarkson.

  • Briiick

    Yeah. They will tighten their defense.

  • JoeTeam

    It’s going to be hard for LAL to close … Rose was monster last few mins against GSW. They didn’t have Bogut in there to block.

  • Brent Yen

    Not really, but he is not a rookie…so I am more worried….

  • Carol Tiu

    Because the snake itself (kobe) is gone. So much for all that blather by BS in order to justify putting him in starting lineup.

  • JoeTeam

    what’s the first half 2nd init report? I think outscored first again, right?

  • Brent Yen

    Thibs will adjust….BS will wait until they are not leading anymore

  • JoeTeam

    No sure about his footwork while dribbling. That’s a high skill thing, esp if you chew gum too.

  • Chipdip

    BS: I am going to sit Lin until he is ice cold before he gets a chance to return to the court…

  • 1mtoldman

    the 4 bench players outscored the five starters 32 to 27

  • Arsenium12 .
  • kauaiblue

    When jlin gets it going its beautiful… r we the only ones who sees this?

  • occupatio

    yes

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lakers will have Lin, maybe?

  • JoeTeam

    hey, Nate took my advice. Now a closeup of you looking v smart as you are ha ha.

  • CaliUSMC

    omg i didn’t know there was a game on tongight!
    Lin is playing goooood!

  • 1mtoldman

    also the 5 starters 27 points came in roughly 70 collective minutes of play the bench 32 in roughly 50.

  • JoeTeam

    We 220m of the 500m fans, I don’t mind.

  • MoominFloren

    Whenever someone posted a photo of BIG smile of Lin, I know he is having a good game 😉

  • Charlie Sun

    BS: “What’s adjustment?”

  • Brent Yen

    Seems like this is the tanking time plush player evaluations..I guess that is just perfect for LAL’s grand plan? Lol

  • Carol Tiu

    He just remembered he’s in a tanking team.

  • occupatio

    someone pls let me know when game starts. i cant stand half time shows

  • Brent Yen

    Now we know besides asking Michael to sleep, what else can we do to help lin to have a good game..

  • CaliUSMC

    I don’t get it.

  • 1mtoldman

    have whoever blowout a tire again.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The thing that I notice is when Clarkson is in the game with Ellington, Ellington actually moves more and faster to compensate for him.

  • JoeTeam

    When Michael misses a game, Lin is good.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The team plays much better w/o Kobe.

  • JoeTeam

    I want that.

  • Brent Yen

    Shhhhhhhhh

  • JoeTeam

    pretty good.

  • sws94

    And Nick.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Everybody knows it except Byron Scott and Kobe. 59 points for the half giving up only 48.

  • Ellington knows how to get his shots off screen or dribble.
    Clarkson is still learning to be PG/SG

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    sure! no ballhogging

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    i just realized i event said nothing today. because scott hasn’t pulled anything………yet

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    kelly is good he is just over played

  • Charlie Sun

    Announcers: LA bench shooting 68%.

    As many here would say: You’re welcome LA starters

  • bolero

    Whats up with Bulls?

  • sport

    No Kobe no Nick = team ball!

  • Brent Yen

    Lal plays hard..

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Hope a win tonight.

  • BuzzerBeater

    68%!!
    the percentage is so nice without Nick to drag it down XD

  • sport

    Lin still not in?!

  • Charlie Sun

    Both teams not shooting well so far

  • JoeTeam

    Hill doing well tonight on O … no kobe?

  • Brent Yen

    Butler is really a tough cover..

  • sport

    I hope when Lin’s back in he still got the hot hand!

  • sport

    Yes Lin’s in!!

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin is back in after Ellington foul

  • Lin in 6:25 left in Q3

  • Charlie Sun

    Butler can have his way with Clarkson

  • Charlie Sun

    Rose foul JLin

  • JoeTeam

    give him 30 for the win!

  • Mr Chuckles

    Lin got a foul call for him?

  • sport

    Yes it’s a miracle that JLin got a call! first of the night too!

  • JJ Hui

    Hahaha! That’s right, now is the look on the bench, see who can warm the bench faster!!!

  • Brent Yen

    By rose…which is more unbelievable

  • bolero

    Lin stared at rose after the foul

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Butler is more dangerous than Rose.

  • BuzzerBeater

    JLin is in for Ellington? so he’s covering Butler?

  • Alaingrvis

    rose

  • Mr Chuckles

    Is h-e-double-hockey-sticks about to freeze over?

  • Alaingrvis

    sometimes butler

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Rose is a bit overweight

  • Alaingrvis

    maybe too muscular

  • BuzzerBeater

    both tough! but Im mostly scared of Butler nowadays

  • Alaingrvis

    rose looks uncomfortable

  • sport

    Entire Bulls team not play welling tonight, was this a back to back?

  • blubell

    Ouch… FT

  • Maknusia

    come on need to make those FTs

  • Charlie Sun

    I wonder why JLin’s FT% has dipped this season

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin blew by Butler and almost scored

  • Maknusia

    Comeon…need to keep the lead

  • BuzzerBeater

    76% currently :S
    very weird, he was money from the line

  • sport

    Too missed layups for Lin already =/

  • Alaingrvis

    twice left hand miss come on

  • Charlie Sun

    Poor Tarik Black. He’s very bored on the bench

  • Maknusia

    Nice steal and a basket…Clarkson

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    da future.

  • sport

    Yup, Clarkson can get more steals with his long arms and height!

  • Brent Yen

    Lal is been exploited by that base line drive..

  • chan c

    yeah after having that breakout game awhile back?

  • Alaingrvis

    lin keep shooting and driving

  • Charlie Sun

    That combined with cold shooting spells disaster

  • Alaingrvis

    so is bulls all lin has to do is finish it. he gets to the rim with ease

  • I believe this was on JHill’s slam in Q2

    https://twitter.com/Librafree/status/561028132291899392

  • Brent Yen

    They should put lin at the right wing…not left

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin-Jordan Hill is not that good.

  • sport

    Didn’t Black get injured not too long ago?

  • yes, next one is going to drop!

  • JJ Hui

    The commentators really non stop trumping up Jordan Clarkson until it sounded fake, jeez!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    I’m sure the bulls are forcing him that side

  • Brent Yen

    Because hill is just a cone when doing ppnr

  • chan c

    as per the announcers 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    they did the same thing for price when he was starting; now the head of the snake is cut off and looks so sad on the bench.

  • Maknusia

    missed it!

  • JJ Hui

    This is really cruel of BS, RP must be offended the bs coach!

  • Charlie Sun

    Bulls heating up

  • Promo Sports World

    No movement

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Losing lead in 3rd as usual

  • Maknusia

    2 pt game now…as usual Q3 been bad

  • chan c

    this scenario has happened before lol

  • golfhacker

    Don’t know why Jeremy fades away on his jump shots.

  • Why is Clarkson playing full Q1 and Q3?
    So Lin won’t get to be the PG

  • Maknusia

    pretty much every single game, now 🙁

  • chan c

    clarkson showing off smh

  • Promo Sports World

    Pass the ball man

  • Rick Johnson

    Need Davis out there, or Black

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sloppy Jordan Clarkson!

  • Brent Yen

    Could be a corner three for Lin I guess..

  • Maknusia

    who wouldnt?!

  • JoeTeam

    peking duck face again.

  • blubell

    Scott is not stopping him..

  • sport

    Lin’s out of rhythm, missed 3 shots =( No thanks to BS for sitting him for 9 minutes every stretch!!

  • Charlie Sun

    Clarkson at 29 min. And we haven’t even started the 4Q

  • Maknusia

    at least we closed it with a 4pt lead…sigh

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers have cooled off a bit

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clarkson can’t see anyone to pass to except Jordan Hill when he was on the court.

  • JW

    he’s playing kobe minutes

  • sport

    Clarkson keeps want to take the last shot of the quarter SMH! Should be Lin doing that!

  • Maknusia

    Lin need to learn to shake it off and be prepared

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    A Brooks just torched him.

  • Charlie Sun

    I’m guessing Clarkson will get another chance to close out game. Must be nice having a supportive coach

  • Alaingrvis

    he is there rookie he will get a lot of playing time. thats there priority. if randle was healthy he would get more

  • joyce ward

    Exactly

  • chan c

    but clarkson wanted to take the last shot

  • the moment is too big for him.

    If Byron wants to win, Lin will play PG in Q4

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He is so sloppy!

  • Charlie Sun

    Lin needs Davis back

  • 1mtoldman

    you noticed that too? smh

  • Brent Yen

    Then he should stick with what was working….

  • Maknusia

    Isnt that the plan, to get Clarkson as much minutes so that he learns?

  • Keith

    Notice Lin doesn’t run around to help w the defense often as he used to be . Good.

  • chan c

    new favorite son 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    He is covering good shooters..

  • 1mtoldman

    its more in my opinion a matter of the kobe factor. price was only on the court to stay out of kobes way. caddie, ball boy. once no kobe. no need for price.

  • Maknusia

    true, and thats the plan…we just need to accept that

  • Charlie Sun

    Ed Davis only has 10 min. JLin-Hill does not work

  • JoeTeam

    that price closeup … i feel for the guy.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah and also as someone else pointed out keeps the ball out of lins hands. with clarkson essentially the pg for both first and second unit (even tho its obivous he is not a pg).

  • Maknusia

    He is a rookie…give him a break

  • Charlie Sun

    Prediction: Now that the full bench is in, the Lakers will extend lead. But when starters come back, the lead will evaporate

  • Chipdip

    Here we go… Lin+Davis!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Boozer Hill doesn’t work. Someone needs to be in the paint. When Hill looking for his jumper messes things up.

  • joyce ward

    Scott trying to tank. Give the fans a good show in the beginning and then put in the rookie and let go game to H3LL to keep that draft pick…smh

  • Charlie Sun

    Wes, please don’t try those 3s

  • Promo Sports World

    A selfish team

  • Charlie Sun

    Ed Davis once again in position to cleanup miss

  • Brent Yen

    Like LIN’s dribble…can change pace better now

  • Rick Johnson

    Ellington Davis Lin Boozer Johnson. Probably their best lineup

  • Charlie Sun

    Nice fast break Ellington

  • Maknusia

    AB been playing well! 12min 12pts

  • golfhacker

    I’d take Kelly over Johnson.

  • Charlie Sun

    Bad pass JLin

  • Maknusia

    I will take AB 🙂

  • sport

    Why didn’t Lin just take a shot?! ><"

  • Brent Yen

    Waiting for davis

  • kauaiblue

    Shoot it!

  • sport

    Should’ve just taken a shot!!

  • bad pass by Lin that time. Should’ve shot it

  • Alaingrvis

    real bulls are playing. defense is high becareful

  • Maknusia

    there goes his minutes….should be more cautious in Q4

  • chan c

    ouch.he’s gonna be crucified for that…

    from no less than so called ’fans’ themselves , in the other site. 🙂

  • orLinaryjoe

    Slowed it down and forced it. Pedal to the metal, Lin.

  • Promo Sports World

    Can’t make pass but guys are standing around

  • CaliUSMC

    Hes in full defer mode

  • sport

    Lin should’ve taken a shot and not pass!

  • Charlie Sun

    Watch BS bench JLin after the TO

  • sws94

    Yeah, it’s a bad play. Move on.

  • Maknusia

    grrrrr

  • Ken Chatsworth

    This is a case where not shooting is actually selfish.

  • He should’ve shot it. Still has no confidence in his mid range. Please get a real shooting coach and also work with Kenny Atkinson again. Atkinson turned Jeff Teague into an All-Star.

  • kauaiblue

    2nd half blues… whatsnup with this?

  • Carol Tiu

    especially with the clock winding down.

  • yes, noone makes a cut

  • Promo Sports World

    Wouldn’t have been a good shot

  • Promo Sports World

    Statues

  • Brent Yen

    Will lin come back?

  • CaliUSMC

    I predict an overtime

  • JoeTeam

    just decided … lal will win.

  • sport

    doesn’t matter, he was dribbling for a long time and it’s better than getting a TO!

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy Lin makes a turnover meltdown fear etc

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin will make buzzer beatet in overtime

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Over passing kills your game. Lin gave BS all the reason to justify his last DNP.

  • Maknusia

    not JHill?

  • blubell

    Lin for the Win!

  • Alaingrvis

    bulls just playing like the bulls lol relax

  • FrankW

    Only 2 tos

  • Charlie Sun

    Ellington rushed 3

  • blubell

    wow, Jeremy still in

  • Ken Chatsworth

    1 more min

  • Charlie Sun

    Nice drive Ellington

  • Maknusia

    TO in Q4, is not that good…but it happens

  • CaliUSMC

    Ellingtons dad is probably smiling. Dude is playing great!

  • Promo Sports World

    Ellington trying to get a contract

  • Brent Yen

    Oh yeah!

  • sport

    Bulls calls timeout with 3 seconds. BS looks lost LOL.

  • chan c

    hardworking kid

  • JoeTeam

    B +

  • sport

    Over passing is Lin’s witness and he needs to look to score more!

  • Charlie Sun

    BS yelled something to JLin

  • Charlie Sun

    Announcer got drilled!

  • chan c

    finally..

  • CaliUSMC

    Big two by Lin!!

  • blubell

    Bank it!

  • sport

    Yes Lin with the 2!

  • JoeTeam

    lin smooth …

  • Beautiful drive high-off the glass!

  • Maknusia

    nice…GO Lin

  • Brent Yen

    See…u have to put lin on the right

  • Promo Sports World

    The touch

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin 11/5 stat so far

  • Promo Sports World

    Jlin getting good shots

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin in attack mode again

  • Brent Yen

    This is why u float…because the resulting off reb

  • CaliUSMC

    That white lady was getting down

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Teamball!

  • Mr Chuckles

    I like the aggressiveness.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin drive gets scare easy put back. that should be an assist lol

  • chan c

    Don’t mess it up , coach!

  • blubell

    11pts/5asts so far

  • sport

    Wish Lin made that! Missed 3-4 layups tonight ><"

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Lin done.

  • Rick Johnson

    8-0 run. Scott going to take Lin out. Protect the tank.

  • bolero

    What’s up with rose. JLIN toying with him.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Sacre cleaned after Lin. Did I just say that?

  • Briiick

    BS, don’t throw in a monkey wrench!

  • Charlie Sun

    Sacre made a play?!

  • Man, Lin drove so fast it froze my screen!

  • Maknusia

    last one minute of his playing time…lets see if that gets extended

  • JW

    how many for Lin? is that it?

  • Tim Pham

    damn…lin’s layup game this season has been a bit off probably due to lack of rhythm and opportunities..he usually makes at least 2-3 of those missed ones. can’t wait till he gets rhythm for next team

  • FrankW

    Is this a tocos night?

  • sport

    Lin drove in the last easily tonight but missed way too many layups! If he didn’t miss 3-4 layups he’d have 17 points now!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yes, and he is awarded. Needs to play more like this. Don’t slow down. Drive, drive, drive, and yes, pass.

  • Alaingrvis

    I’m sorry to say this but thats not derek rose.

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    Still too much time to know

  • Rick Johnson

    If he didn’t stand up ball would have gone over his head.

  • Allen Wayne

    Did you pick up my dry cleaning?

  • orLinaryjoe

    LOL. Funny stuff, these Lakers fans. Oh yeah, me too.

  • bad night after coming up big vs Curry

  • Charlie Sun

    I’m glad Coach Nick is seeing this too

  • Maknusia

    probably he saw the clock…his playing time is almost up, unless BScott watch is broken

  • Charlie Sun

    OMG JLin is still in

  • Charlie Sun

    Boozer and Davis back on bench. NO MOVEMENT NOW

  • Maknusia

    should have kept Boozer in

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    How did hill got beaten on the rebound by gibson?

  • Charlie Sun

    Once again Sacre and Hill do not move when JLin has the ball

  • blubell

    Wow… Clarkson in for Jeremy.

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin out. Game over

  • Promo Sports World

    Geez man

  • Mr Chuckles

    Hill just kills the flow.

  • Maknusia

    spoke too soon

  • orLinaryjoe

    Game over folks

  • Rick Johnson

    Should always have Davis or Black in with Lin

  • sport

    Lin out?!!

  • CaliUSMC

    Refs want overtime

  • Promo Sports World

    U don’t win with this lineup

  • golfhacker

    Are u really surprised?

  • Chipdip

    BS coaching!

  • JoeTeam

    I just decided, LAL will lose with lin out.

  • Maknusia

    what?! you thought JC wont be coming in?

  • Yura

    Ellington ball hog so obvious!!!

  • Charlie Sun

    Sacre makes a block

  • JJ Hui

    I can’t stand this, what makes a rookie deserves to close the games? BS coach is irritating beyond words!

  • Briiick

    Turn off channel. Time to tank.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    sacre to close the game? Tanking for sure.

  • CJSHYY

    Lakers is tanking again?! I thought they want to win this one?! smh!

  • Mr Chuckles

    Man, sad, Rose looking like old Kobe.

  • occupatio

    sacre over davis, again

  • Maknusia

    27min, 11pts 5 AST, not too bad

  • sport

    What are the chances this game goes to OT?

  • orLinaryjoe

    See his block? Did I just say that, again?

  • Mr Chuckles

    Hill is seriously bad.

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    mmmmm…..

  • Maknusia

    Lets see if LAL could hold on?!

  • Charlie Sun

    Simple observation. JLin with Davis attacks and scores well. JLin with Hill can’t do much

  • Brent Yen

    Zero?

  • Simple for everyone except Byron Scott.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin score played great. game don’t matter. off to next game

  • Charlie Sun

    BS willing to give OT if Lakers can give up a previous win

  • Mr Chuckles

    Hill is BS’ secret tank weapon.

  • CaliUSMC

    99.9%

  • orLinaryjoe

    I know, rare, right?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Teams don’t need to scout the Lakers and they don’t scout 2nd rd pick rookie. Rose was messing around with that play.

  • occupatio

    what has wes done that he should be in the game now?

  • Michael

    What happened? My friend said Lin was beastin so I tuned in and he was taken out for Clarkson?

  • Maknusia

    infinite?

  • sws94

    How does Scott not close with LIn? Is he seriously trying to win games?

  • chan c

    makes sure to mess it up…always…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    typed too fast….anyway…tanking for sure….

  • Brent Yen

    M….

  • blubell

    He is contributing to the tanking.

  • Maknusia

    go back to your previous mode

  • orLinaryjoe

    No beasting, just tanking

  • Brent Yen

    This is how rose hurt himself

  • Maknusia

    B…

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Feel sad for Rose

  • blubell

    Well this explains why Jeremy got benched.

  • Charlie Sun

    Clarkson with a crazy shot that goes in

  • BScott chose to go with starters+Wes Johnson to replace Kelly

  • John Lee

    After 3 games, I think that by “certain victory” Roger Montgomery meant Lin get an average PT of 25 minutes.

  • chan c

    did that just validate the hype over clarkson? lol

  • Yura

    WOWWW 11 points now for Clarkson

  • JoeTeam

    Clark’s night, and his bragging right lol.

  • Good job by Clarkson on drive+And-1

  • sws94

    He lost it up in the air and it still went in.

  • Maknusia

    he is showcasing….good for him

  • Promo Sports World

    Butler a player

  • Charlie Sun

    If the Lakers win, BS will say he likes Clarkson’s poise down the stretch

  • CaliUSMC

    No overtime lol

  • David Kim

    I recorded the game. Is it worth to watch the game? or just watch highlights?

  • Promo Sports World

    Lakers will win inspite of themselves

  • occupatio

    hill thinks he is a superstar

  • Tim Pham

    highlights as usual

  • Yura

    Jordan Hill scores better without Kobe. He was doing horrible few months ago

  • Maknusia

    nice to see him banking that shot!

  • Tim Pham

    bulls didn’t show up at all. more like a bulls lost it rather than lakers won

  • JJ Hui

    LOL!!!!

  • LW

    Tacos?

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes good drive. Had confidence. Probably from not getting jerked around.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Watch it. Some nice drives by Lin.

  • chan c

    tied with Lin? in much much more minutes…

  • Charlie Sun

    Watch the parts when JLin and Davis are in together

  • John Lee

    EVERYONE scores better without Kobe.

  • JoeTeam

    If LAL wins, yes because it’s good scrappy basketball. Lin did fine. His own negative variance to miss 2 layups, a midrange … he had his chances.

    If LAL loses, just watch the Lin parts because BSc was dumb to put Clarkson in for Lin to close an important win game.

  • Carol Tiu

    BS will let Clarkson give free tacos to fans, if he can.

  • JJ Hui

    He is the tanker pilot!!!

  • Tim Pham

    who cares? at this point it’s like u want to take the dog or the cat after the divorce? 20 min or so of lin being able to showcase his trade for his next team is the best we can get ..lakers won’t win…lin isn’t coming back..so who cares..

  • blubell

    Then you need Jeremy.

  • DLin

    You do realize when swaggy gets back, Lin will get 15 minutes a game??

  • David Kim

    Thank you for reply!!!

  • Maknusia

    Clarkson is doing fine…but would have been nicer with both in together

  • Brent Yen

    Are u sure it is that many?

  • chan c

    Lololol the tank job might not just work tonight…

  • Yura

    Your right, what was I thinking

  • Rick Johnson

    Man if only Lin got foul calls like Butler

  • DLin

    You do realize when swaggy gets back, Lin will get 15 minutes a game???

  • Promo Sports World

    Sad to see Jeremy do no wrong and get no love…frustrating as a fan

  • golfhacker

    Me too!

  • joyce ward

    I am so sick of lin getting the short stick. Tomorrow all we will hear is about how well Clarkson played and nothing about Lin…smh

  • Tim Pham

    NEWSFLASH: who cares about clarkson this or that…the point is ….lin is gone by trade deadline or season’s end…there is no turning this around. bs isn’t going anywhere since he has a 4 year contract and he isnt gonna suddenly make lin the starting pg. wake up guys! lets just hope lin can do what he does like tonight in at least fair time (tonight was fair) and wait for his next team

  • Maknusia

    not going to happen

  • ok, question of the night is….

    What did Price do that BScott disowned him? LOL

  • Yura

    SO SLOPPY

  • LW

    Clarkson MVP tonight? Even though Lin and him have similar stats.

  • occupatio

    hope bulls win

  • Singapore BB Fan

    haha….more exciting now….BS scratching head…

  • Charlie Sun

    Butler, what a shot

  • chan c

  • blubell

    Butlersanity?

  • Mr Chuckles

    Here we go!

  • JoeTeam

    saying anything negative here in our Stepford Wives’ site will get you self-banned as Mod.

  • occupatio

    so smart to shoot it quick

  • Alaingrvis

    don’t matter really

  • CaliUSMC

    Overtime 😀

  • David Kim

    i think FO did something…

  • Tim Pham

    well, hopefully it won’t be for long…38 games left or trade deadline…bottom line is, lin isn’t here for long

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Go tank

  • Chipdip

    BS Coaching! GEt a real PG out there !!!

  • Brent Yen

    No! I wanna sleep..but I am not Michael

  • sport

    Hoping for Overtime so Lin can get more points!

  • Maknusia

    thats the reason he gets call as well…

  • JoeTeam

    Put Lin in:

    1. LAL wins
    2. save me from all the haterz please.

  • blubell

    Scott’s beloved Price… what happened?

  • Charlie Sun

    The Sith eat their own

  • Promo Sports World

    Optimistic for a trade to a contender

  • Alaingrvis

    butler is the future for the bulls

  • CaliUSMC

    Who is this Michael 😐

  • BuzzerBeater

    To Clarkson’s credit, he’s a rookie so that’s impressive.

  • hmm… 4pt game w/ 52 seconds lost.
    BScott can get crucified here if Lakers lost

  • Maknusia

    Want LAL to win?! ;;)

  • JC

    Hope lakers lose this one

  • Duh… Bulls have a full court press so Byron Scott doesn’t bring in any more ball handlers.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Clarkson getting abused now.

  • Yura

    Seriously put Lin Back

  • chan c

    what was that? lol

  • CaliUSMC

    AHAHHAAHHAHHAHHA

  • Charlie Sun

    Bulls smell blood now

  • Singapore BB Fan

    …michael jackson’s billy jean….the kid is not my son….

  • Maknusia

    Keep the lead guys…slacking now!

  • David Kim

    Scott trying to win the game without Lin…
    Lets go bulls!!!

  • Maknusia

    As soon as Rose comes in, the game changes

  • blubell

  • Alaingrvis

    LOL!

  • Promo Sports World

    Hey coach u there

  • Hans

    you can’t fake this sh….you can’t!!

  • Charlie Sun

    Damn it, I want to sleep hahaha

  • Maknusia

    Afraid of Lin’s fan?!

  • Chipdip

    This BS coach should be fired immediately!

  • JoeTeam

    Very Obvious NO LIN, no win even if DOWNHILL!

  • Alaingrvis

    its scott remember

  • JC

    If it was Lin who got that TO he would get crucified by bs, kobe, lakrrs media, basically anyone but Lin fans

  • JW

    taco in danger

  • cshot

    oh heck yes lol

  • Jeremiah

    We need Kobe to take the winning shot.

  • Michael

    No idea. Just know that bad things happen when he is here.

  • Rick Johnson

    Clarkson chokes. But it’s really Scott’s fault for putting him in that situation. Gotta know your limits.

  • Keith

    Nice! Thanks Pau. Just like what I want

  • Byron’s getting what he deserved.
    Putting rookie to close game can cost his job soon!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    rookie…is still a rookie…we still like the kid..but please BS don’t kill him this way…

  • LW

    You are right! No tacos after all!

  • JoeTeam

    I wish for you to be right.

  • CaliUSMC

    I should get a poll win, if Lin gets buzzer beater in overtime ;). Thanks psalm.

  • yes.. BScott needs to be held responsible by the media

  • ETC

    Wow. Can’t believe that it is tied.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    sacre overstayed…..

  • Yura

    Not sure he knows anything, he’s confused

  • neither can BScott 😀

  • Charlie Sun

    BS excuse for the blown lead, “we didn’t have Kobe”

  • ETC

    I am hoping that the Bulls pull out a win.

  • blubell

    OTOTOT

  • chan c

    lolol OT!

  • Promo Sports World

    That’s the winning time lineup lol

  • ETC

    Funny.

  • Yessssss! OT, baby!!

  • Alaingrvis

    watch lin not play at all in overtime

  • David Kim

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Charlie Sun

    Basketball gods have taken away the favorable bounces from the Lakers

  • Brent Yen

    Lol

  • sport

    Unless Lin’s put back in!

  • Maknusia

    wow, that was close…thought it might go into OT!

  • CaliUSMC

    What I say Brent. Stay wakie wakie

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL

  • Keith

    Bad Coaching by Byron Scott. he should have bought Jeremy Lin into the game. This run is solely due to bad PG play by Clarkson.— Sir Kudo (@jkudog) January 30, 2015

  • blubell

    The moment was too big for Clarkson… Scott.

  • Yura

    He has to. Clarkson’s struggling

  • ETC

    The lakers are going for a record! Dude. Go lakers! Tank Tank Tank!

  • LW

    It’s so hard for the Lakers to get a win.

  • Maknusia

    Bulls outplayed LAL on second Half

  • Charlie Sun

    Game recap, JLin helps spark 6-0 run that allows Lakers to regain a strong lead in the 4th. Clarkson comes back in, lead gone.

  • Keith

    That was Byron Scott's fault. It's obvious the PG was struggling. Go back to Lin— Kevin Donalson (@DrKEDSR) January 30, 2015

  • chan c

    Q : will Lin be allowed to play?

  • 1mtoldman

    you mean its so easy for them to tank to loss

  • Brent Yen

    This is all on u!

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Dialog won’t be that Clarkson choked but D Rose is good.

  • Chipdip

    Right, Clarkson did a good job tonight but making him to close out the game is asking too much from a rookie! This BS coach got to be kicked out!

  • Maknusia

    my stream forze…what happened?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Can’t win with the lineup. Thought they are going to lose. Well at least overtime. Not bad with this lineup.

  • Hans

    Gotta give props to BS, this IS how you keep things excited and tank AT the same time. Master of all.

  • 1mtoldman

    tank commander

  • ETC

    Don’t mind if Rose gets the credit. He does deserve some credit.

  • blubell
  • chan c

    relying on your rookie to make the crunch time plays…what a coach…

  • Allen Wayne

    Duh

  • Yascar

    Preach it Ding!

  • Maknusia

    i guess so

  • Jeremiah

    BS’s OT lineup?

  • 1mtoldman

    i agree.

  • blubell

    Still no JEremy.

  • JC

    A TO and a choke by BS’s precious pg in the last minute allowed the game to be tied

  • Maknusia

    Geez, I thought we sealed the game…sigh…typical

  • chan c

    ok.Go Bulls!!!

  • Charlie Sun

    BS sticking with starting lineup

  • orLinaryjoe

    He does the tanking well. Will keep his job. Involuntary tanking though

  • I’d rather not see Lin in OT. Bulls are out for blood.

  • Yura

    OMG

  • Chipdip

    haha… no Lin…. the Full Tanking is rolling… watch out!

  • JC

    Lose the game please

  • sport

    Still no Lin? Bulls for the win then!

  • Joe what do you know

    Cos the Lakers are COLD….

  • LW

    Sorry Clarkson, no MVP tonight!

  • JoeTeam

    ha ha clarkson lost./

  • Charlie Sun

    Clarkson trying to do too much

  • Rick Johnson

    So in OT you keep in the lineup that blew an 8 point lead

  • orLinaryjoe

    I’ve seen this movie b4. The Warriors OT game.

  • chan c

    lakers lost like a puppy out there w/o a true PG.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin will make buzzer beater. Dont worry.

  • ETC

    He has to stick to what works. I don’t blame him.

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    At this point, it would be smart for BScott to have senior like Lin in the game

  • JoeTeam

    GSW were not tanking they had their best out there.

  • Maknusia

    always!

  • Jeremiah

    No tacos for you.

  • Maknusia

    at least we proved Brent was wrong! 🙂

  • Charlie Sun

    NOOO

  • CaliUSMC

    Lol

  • JoeTeam

    Clarkson, was he the PG on 12-0 Bulls run?

  • Yura

    Jesus, he looks so confused. Everyone is so confused!!

  • JC

    Never…..
    Ever……
    Gonna happen, I never doubt he won’t make one if he is given a chance though

  • sport

    LOL from the bench?!

  • Jack

    Let’s go bulls!

  • JJ Hui

    i hope Lin plays the last three minutes, or else I should go Zzzzzzz!

  • ETC

    I hope the starting line up loses. Makes thing more obvious to the rest of the haters.

  • Joe what do you know

    For crying out loud just bring JLin back~!!

  • Maknusia

    sigh

  • Charlie Sun

    Announcers mentioning Lakers look lost on offense right now

  • orLinaryjoe

    Smart and BS in the same sentence?

  • Promo Sports World

    Noah doing big things

  • Brent Yen

    Great…Scott is exposed

  • Yura

    Good play by Bulls. We never see plays like that here

  • chan c

    ha ha Lakers are just crap right now…

  • Charlie Sun

    Clarkson doing his best Kobe imitation

  • JC

    Bs please don’t let Lin go in there to be the scapegoat

  • sport

    Do you need to ask?

  • Charlie Sun

    BS: No retreat. Stick with the plan. STARTERS 4 LIFE

  • Jack

    “There’s not even the thought of passing” lolol

  • Maknusia

    who know…the positive vibe might wake him up..i know not gonna happen

  • chan c

    lol buzzer beater from the bench..

  • Promo Sports World

    How is this not called out la media lol

  • blubell

    LoL

  • Charlie Sun

    Announcer: Not a single thought of passing (referring to Clarkson)

  • JoeTeam

    Can’t believe this coach. TO now with Lin in and game has a chance. They really trying to lose.

    All Clarkson can do is to try to dribble it in. It’s 1v9 with a rookie. It’s not Harden or Kobe – it’s all he’s got.

  • JJ Hui

    STUpid bs coach beyond words!

  • Promo Sports World

    Lakers are a joke

  • Rick Johnson

    TNT Announcer: “there isn’t even the thought of passing”

  • Charlie Sun

    Even if JLin comes back, it may be too little too late

  • Mr Chuckles

    Come on Bulls!!!

  • JC

    Let Lin sit out the whole OT please

  • chan c

    coach made sure to keep the losing streak alive!

  • LW

    falling behind by 5 pts and Lin still on the bench, Lakers you just got another loss!

  • Joe what do you know

    Make way everyone, Kobe Jr in da house!!

  • Michael

    Commentator: There is not even the thought of passing (Clarkson)

  • ETC

    Go Kobe Jr.!

  • Charlie Sun

    Still no offense, only quick jump shots

  • Singapore BB Fan

    No tacos tonight? ahhhhh…

  • Maknusia

    passing had been striked out from the offensive plan

  • Yura

    I hope LIn doesn’t come in

  • chan c

    i concur…

  • Promo Sports World

    This game is insanely bad

  • Singapore BB Fan

    no fall guy

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin not coming back. Well in the back of crowd as BS draws a “play”

  • Maknusia

    because the “L” infront of the insane is missing

  • golfhacker

    Brent Barry called Wesley Johnson Wesley Matthews. Haha!

  • Hans

    The TNT commentators are calling out all the coaching faults. BS should be ashamed.

  • Maknusia

    1pt game!

  • sport

    So does BS tie the losing record after this one?

  • Promo Sports World

    Pat Riley aka BS idol would never let clarkson play like this

  • blubell

    Expose him!

  • chan c

    ellington , only bright spot on the floor for Lakers

  • Charlie Sun

    Yup

  • ETC

    Go Bulls!

  • Yura

    Yes, it’s nice not hearing that STU talk!!

  • Mr Chuckles

    Sacre DO NOT foul out.

  • Charlie Sun

    Ellington now ball handler

  • Mr Chuckles

    No chance.. #2

  • sport

    LOL he’s going to break the record for longest losing streak LMAO! Lakers would be dumb not to fire him!

  • Promo Sports World

    Well this might be ellingtons sole time in his career where he can play like this so why not

  • Hans

    I’m watching solely to watch the Lakers lose this one and tie the record.

  • JC

    Should Bulls just fail lakers?

  • blubell

    Do we want a double OT? lol

  • Charlie Sun

    Prediction: BS will go through every player not named JLin to handle the ball in the 4th

  • Alaingrvis

    tbh i didn’t care who won. but that losing recored is just rewards for scott

  • sport

    Double OT and still no Lin no thanks!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    should go for the 2 or 3?

  • Maknusia

    FO is thinking…as bad as his coaching is…atleast he is helping to get the draft picks

  • Tim Pham

    if lin had a backup role like brooks this year…still be way better than lakers

  • Yura

    Commentator says the truth!!

  • Maknusia

    drive

  • Jack

    If they lose, it’s because Lin wasn’t in.

  • Charlie Sun

    Go for 2

  • Ken Chatsworth

    Should be Sacre ISO

  • Alaingrvis

    yea on a winning team

  • Michael

    Any sticky isolation will do.

  • Mr Chuckles

    NOOO!!!!

  • Hill made a Big-Boy shot there

  • JoeTeam

    Hill, that was scary fun …

  • joyce ward

    What did they say?

  • Yura

    Double oT!

  • CaliUSMC

    lin with buzzer beaterrrrr come on let him in!!

  • Charlie Sun

    Hill long shot pays off this time

  • Maknusia

    yes! good boy

  • JC

    It’s simple, bs will let his pg make the 3pt shot

  • Promo Sports World

    Or Steve Blake on Portland

  • Alaingrvis

    with obviously a better coach. also this slow scott style is caging lin in

  • Maknusia

    ??

  • Watch Gasol score the last 2 to steal a win 😀

  • Tim Pham

    bulls take this one!

  • chan c

    lol 2nd OT?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Assist Ellington…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Who gonna shoot?

  • Tim Pham

    i hope so. after all the crap the lakers gave him despite him saving kobe multiple times to rings

  • JoeTeam

    still lots of time to lose 16 sec.

  • Charlie Sun

    It would be poetic justice

  • Gasol would be the best candidate

  • Maknusia

    AB

  • Jack

    NOOOO

  • Carol Tiu

    Let LAL lose and get it over with.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    he is holding something close to his chest….maybe a photo of Kobe….

  • Maknusia

    OT

  • Mr Chuckles

    Ack!
    More bad hoops.

  • Charlie Sun

    DOUBLE OT

  • sport

    Double OT…..If this goes to 3OT it’s probably the most boring triple overtime game!

  • chan c

    Lol 2nd 0T!

  • Promo Sports World

    Drose needs to pass the rock to butler

  • Charlie Sun

    Watch BS still not change lineup

  • ETC

    Hoping they put lin in the last oT

  • blubell

    Ellington played over 40 minutes and Clarkson close to it…

  • orLinaryjoe

    torture

  • Maknusia

    happened!

  • Yura

    PlZ put bench in

  • golfhacker

    Darn it. I have to get up in 4 1/2 hours.

  • JoeTeam

    Wonder if BSc is now willing to let Lin play, I mean Clarkson needs a nap …

  • Briiick

    Now Lin should come in to kill them.

  • Maknusia

    Can we have some Lin, please!!!

  • chan c

    Prolonging the agony. Ugh!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Long jump shot? Bad choice.

  • sport

    No let BS tie the losing streak so he can break it the next game!

  • blubell

    You first have to sleep to get up. lol.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    please don’t drive…ok

  • Jack

    Linsanity double OT

  • Yura

    Yes!!!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    He won last game with that shot….so I guess…

  • Maknusia

    lol,,,,but dont we love that?! 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    scott= no

  • chan c

    i can’t take this prolonged agony anymore…lol

  • Yura

    Haha

  • Alaingrvis

    scott will not do tht

  • Hans

    both line ups are gassed. If BS really wants the win, the LA bench is at huge advantage

  • CJSHYY

    They want to tank…

  • blubell
  • JW

    How do they still trying to claim that they are trying to win when they have the inexperienced line up at end of games.

  • JoeTeam

    I couldn’t believe he left his feet.

  • blubell
  • Carol Tiu

    We’ll know if BS wants to win this one if he puts Lin in.

  • Maknusia

    might as well go and get some drink to cheers you up…and go to work…

  • orLinaryjoe

    true

  • Charlie Sun

    Hah same lineup

  • JoeTeam

    happy for Weezy tonight!

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    Nice shot Ellington

  • Maknusia

    look like he wants to stick with the starters…sigh

  • Jeremiah

    If Lin don’t play they better lose.

  • Great spinning reverse layup by Ellington

  • chan c

    it didn’t work for the first OT. but the coach sticks with the same line up.let’s see..

  • Mr Chuckles

    Only Lin standing and cheering his team on.

  • Charlie Sun

    Clarkson hits long 2

  • Maknusia

    so far so good

  • CaliUSMC

    bye bye sacre

  • Maknusia

    Boozer in

  • Charlie Sun

    Looks like BS will be forced to make a change now hah

  • Brent Yen

    Clarkson finally figured out how to attack brooks…

  • sport

    Clarkson and Ellington must be dead tired! 40+ minutes?! Are they KD and Westbrook?!

  • Maknusia

    late he had impressed me alot…good for him

  • chan c

    C’mon Bulls. Win this one now….

  • Maknusia

    if you are dead…you cant be tired..lol

  • occupatio

    you can guess what the headline for this game will be

  • I think we should root for 3OT until someone fouls out so Byron has to play Lin!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Ed Davis – 16 minutes.
    Awful. I hope he ends up Jeremy in a playoff team next season.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    over stayed

  • Maknusia

    Hill can block! great

  • CaliUSMC

    rose – i don’t even know you anymore.

  • Charlie Sun

    Hill block

  • Rick Johnson

    Scott must think Clarkson is Kobe or something.

  • Brent Yen

    That block worth all 9 mils Hill is making

  • chan c

    but the coach is clueless

  • joyce ward

    Yep, I just feel bad for lin, he can’t get a break in the NBA…smh

  • Maknusia

    JHill is MVP tonite

  • Charlie Sun

    Hill is feeling the long range again

  • big-time block indeed

  • sport

    Wow Lakers might actually pull out the win with this lineup?!

  • Brent Yen

    Totally

  • chan c

    hill shaping out to be this game’s hero , if they come out with a win…

  • Mr Chuckles

    Bulls are out of gas.

  • JoeTeam

    LAL will win now. I give the game to Hill. Or, 2nd unit won game, Clarkson/BSc lost it, Hill saved it.

    Oh, Assistant MVP – Weezy.

  • Maknusia

    bigtime indeed

  • sws94

    Wow, the players may pull off beating the tank tonight. Byron tried, but they were determined to win.

  • Charlie Sun

    Well the last time Lakers had a lead like this, they blew it

  • sport

    Ellington has most minutes 44!

  • Tim Pham

    how did the bulls blow that momentum in first ot?

  • DRose just didn’t have it tonight. Neither did Gasol missing FTs

  • Promo Sports World

    Trade trade trade trade

  • Mr Chuckles

    Bulls need to trap Clarkson again.

  • Promo Sports World

    Clarkson and Ellington will get all the guard minutes

  • Briiick

    b2b

  • chan c

    Lin blocked Rose too , along while ago 🙂

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This is a good thing. Hope Mitch will trade Lin.

  • occupatio

    does hill get the headline or clarkson?

  • Maknusia

    back to back, right

  • Promo Sports World

    Sucks

  • JoeTeam

    I just thought of that, 2nd.

  • Still plenty of time. It was 4pt with 52 seconds in regulation before OT

  • Charlie Sun

    Wes makes

  • Maknusia

    true

  • Lin is standing on the sideline. He’s itching to play 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    Lal finally clamped that base line drive

  • JoeTeam

    Only diff was, then Clarkson was gambling rambling. Game is more even now with different touches.

  • joyce ward

    I am out. I hate how they treat Lin. Lakers media will swarm Clarkson/Ellington tomorrow. Scott din’t even bring lin back in for the OT.smhg

  • Charlie Sun

    Bulls too tired to pressure D. Lakers may pull this off

  • chan c

    can i say Rose lost it for the Bullls? if they lose this one…

  • Mr Chuckles

    Dang it.

  • sport

    Great now BS has more excuse to bench Lin.

  • blubell

    *Scratch scratch*

  • Alaingrvis

    as i said don’t matter. bulls are not contenders

  • Tim Pham

    feel ya, but seriously, i hope lin fans still don’t have hope in lakers situation? im surprised lin got to play 26 mins…once swag is back, lin will be 10-15mins. not surprised, too late, time to move on. (for us and lin)

  • JoeTeam

    Don’t worry about it Joyce. LAL were not trying to win, so no cost to Scott for sticking with the bad starting team. If they lose, he did his job. If they win, he’s proven right. JLin is still outta there.

  • Hans

    It’s a pity how the post-game discussion wont be focusing on how the Lakers let the game got into OT in the first place. too bad.

  • chan c

    he must be… 🙂

  • Headline: Pau Gasol helpes Lakers defeat Bulls in double OT.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    no worries….over playing at this rate..players will suffer physical injuries…just like KB

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Rose shooting 7-26.

  • Tim Pham

    no, wrong. bs doesn’t need excuses to bench lin. he already has .

  • Charlie Sun

    Looks like Butler is out

  • blubell

    Jeremy is still the LAL’s assist leader.

  • sws94

    He didn’t bring back Davis either and Boozer was only in because Sacre fouled out. I have no idea what he was thinking but somehow, it didn’t blow up in his face. Hill just made a lot of shots.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Ball game.

  • sport

    Both Clarkson and Ellington had 40+ minutes while Lin never had that kinda of treatment with Rockets nor Lakers!

  • JoeTeam

    yes, really, as announcers said, no ball movement no player movement after lin out.

  • well, the Bulls didn’t have enough in the tank to finish the big run
    Rose 7-26 shooting. Yikes!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Let the rookie bragggggg all he wants…JLin would be the first to congratulate JC.

  • occupatio

    NBA. where amazing happens. scrubs win it

  • Price and Black look sad

  • Charlie Sun

    Once in a blue moon, this lineup can win

  • Chipdip

    BS tried so hard to tank another one and he failed… very rare!

  • sws94

    Clarkson can injure himself without a ramp up in minutes. Byron is crazy.

  • Tim Pham

    LIN FANS: it’s a lost cause…best case is lin plays 20 or so minutes..worst case: DNP…..clarkson is their future and naturally they will play him a lot…lin will be gone by trade deadline or end of the year…lakers never really wanted lin, never had a chance here, just call this a year in which lin had to restructure and re-tool. let’s wait for next year.

  • Alaingrvis

    I’m out. scott avoid record. lets start a new run at it. 2-3 months left

  • Briiick

    BS should be fired for missing a tank.

  • JoeTeam

    he’s free to lose, so he was proving his tough coaching point (you stick with your team and they win)

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin looks too happy on the bench tonight. Like elated.

  • Maknusia

    Here comes AB!!!

  • chan c

    Lol against the Bulls , no less

  • Maknusia

    lol…u are naughty!

  • Yura

    What is BS smiling for!!!! he looks so happy

  • Singapore BB Fan

    DRoss 26 FGA only making 7 isn’t going to help Bulls cause…

  • joyce ward

    I hope Lin has some prospects for next season. Lakers wanted any PG other than lin, now they have him. I will say this that teams are going to scout Clarkson now and and he will not have such an easy time next time.

  • Charlie Sun

    So Chicago needs a PG? I can give them a name =)

  • JoeTeam

    $182k, sliced and diced for 12 mins, ran a nice 2nd stint leaving a good cushion.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    that he isn’t going to break that record….losing streak…

  • james brown

    BS: what a game. i want to lose but…:P

  • He can’t believe he played that lineup but DRose shot himself out to still win

  • chan c

    i didn’t realize that… he really did it for his team’s loss tonight

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson can be average sg if he develop. not a passer

  • Maknusia

    Finally!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Teams already did….just see the final minutes in the regular and the first OT….teams know….

  • GoodDayLA

    Actually Clarkson will do ok. I like his game, just young and raw. I too hope Lin finds this summer a chance, He looks ecstatic on the bench so maybe he thinks he will be traded ?

  • sport

    If only LIn had the minutes that Elllington and Clarkson had when he was a starter!

  • JoeTeam

    He had a terrible time trying to close out. Risked injury for all those starters lol. Did you see that strip by AB at a key time? Clarkson is exposed.

  • joyce ward

    Yep

  • yes, he didn’t hog the ball

  • JoeTeam

    Happy for Hill, Weezy.

  • blubell
  • yes, he’s been playing very well

  • Briiick

    KB is still there watching, FO is afraid of his fans, LAL have no hope in a few years.

  • Yura

    Hope so. Lately he doesn’t seem bothered by all this mess.

  • Brent Yen

    If hill plays like this every game, he will be benched I guess…lol

  • JoeTeam

    somebody told him. Hope he watches tape.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    small sample size….but that only applies to JLin

  • CJSHYY

    I agree just like L Galloway from Knicks. He only got 4 points tonight. 2 from trash time. But I guess BS just wanted to tank so he didn’t want 2nd unit to on the court.

  • occupatio

    i dont want to have to watch more games of hill thinking hes a superstar. to think, its even possible have lakers basketball more ugly than it already is.

  • LOL Barkley said that’s the worst Double-OT game

  • sport

    It’s the truth! Thank goodness it wasn’t Triple OT!

  • james brown

    the bench wasn’t given time except when sacre fouled out..BS wants to tire out the starter so they know how to play hard!!!!

  • Showcasing for Trade!

  • JoeTeam

    Chaz Barkley just said that might have been the ugliest double OT …

  • blubell

    So highlights are already uploaded lol

  • sport

    Doesn’t matter Lin’s out of there after this season!

  • Joe what do you know

    Sir Charles doesn’t lie…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    What else can he do to disguise his frustrations? He was all ready to tank…but as some said…DRoss outsmarted him…

  • CJSHYY

    Bc they knew Lakers is tanking but who could believe that Bulls played so bad tonight all due to poor shooting by Rose. smh!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clarkson is a shooter with long arms and he could be defender but when he guarded Aaron Brooks he would have problems with his quickness.

  • Alaingrvis

    it was

  • Briiick

    Hill is having the second worst on/off team rating, second only to you know whom. His scoring (and Clarkson’s) is at the slight of opposing teams.

  • GoodDayLA

    He looks so happy tonight on or off the bench, so odd.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol the announcer tried hard to make the game interesting. but he failed

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    we should learn from him

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Chicago should have won in the first OT.
    This Chicago team has problems with Derrick Rose running the PG.

  • occupatio

    frankly, the lakers scorekeeper was generous to lin with how assists were counted

  • GoodDayLA

    Probably

  • blubell

    They usually are not so lets call it almost an even.

  • occupatio

    wasnt complaining. just surprised.

  • MoominFloren

    I try to convince myself that maybe Lin knows that a trade is coming? Zero chance but I really want him leave this team asap

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s a team effort. The whole Lakers fired up but Chicago is playing roller coaster. Derrick Rose didn’t pass enough to Jimmy Butler.

  • grover chang

    Lin smiling and happy. Good night overall. Lin played well and his team won.

  • CJSHYY

    True. Rose was really bad in shooting tonight. If they let AB played more Bulls maybe would win this one. BS tried so hard to loss this game but failed.

  • grover chang

    I know rose stats have been bad but I was surprised how bad he looked compared to his old self.

  • Rick Johnson

    Chuck: “that was the worst double OT game I’ve ever seen, Bulls did everything they could to lose that game”

  • Alaingrvis

    not even close he looks like he is wearing down

  • Barkley commented that Rose has lost his burst and Jimmy Butler is the best player.
    But hard for Rose to change the game and give touches to Butler and also Gasol.

    So I think it’s just like Kobe’s situation in LA

  • occupatio

    i said even last season that butler was more importrant to bulls than rose. ppl said i was crazy.

  • If DRose didn’t take the outside shot, Gasol would have finished it inside.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea but rose its too soon

  • chan c

    imagine what he can do with 40 mins of playing time…

  • chan c

    lol Barkley is preaching the truth!

  • Alaingrvis

    if he takes another step to superstar yea he will be. his offense plus defense makes him great but offense alone he is pretty good

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Butler is a much better player than Rose. Rose has lost its explosiveness and he’s a bit out of shape, and a little overweight. Shooting 7 out of 26 really hurt the Chicago team.

  • blubell

    You don’t have to imagine… just watch the Linsanity highlights 🙂

  • sport

    Lin didn’t take a single 3 point attempt this game why? Also gotta work on his shooting touch, missed too many layups if not he’d have 17 points!

  • joyce ward

    Well they had to play well for the home team. They are going on the road now and that will be another story. Also this league is not ready for Lin to be a starting PG. Lin does not possess the skin color or impoverished background that fits the NBA standards. LA is suppose to be the melting pot of diversity, not so. NY fans were more accepting of him than this so called”storied franchise”. Lin looked happy for them because he knows that contending teams have probably threw some numbers out there about what they are willing to pay him. So I will stay off twitter for the next couple of days, so I won’t have to hear how Clarkson is the best PG in the world(rolls eyes)

  • chan c

    i hope somebody quotes that and tweet

  • grover chang

    Clarkson would be a nice sg. He just doesn’t have that sixth sense to be a goo dog.

  • ETC

    Hard to watch the game. Just wish lin played more. His season seems to be over.not his fault. May just watch highlights next time

  • CJSHYY

    I guess they don’t want to win …

  • occupatio

    this season is cooked for lin. we already knew that fairly early but we all wanted to not believe it in order to hope for hope. just have to accept that. free agency, next.

  • Rick Johnson

    Bulls already showed how to do it, full court pressure, double team him. He won’t pass to get out of it. That’s how they went on 8-0 run to force overtime. Not sure why they got away from that in OT.

  • grover chang

    Broken clock is right twice a day.

  • grover chang

    Lin, black, Davis, combo would’ve killed it tonight.

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Basketball is a game of rhythm and runs. If you consistently getting your minutes, you could do much better. Even Ronnie Price could do well given him consistent minutes and plays to set him up. Consistent minutes and rhythm is something that is hard to come by for Jeremy,. Lately he played much better in the first half when Davis was there. Jordan Hill and Lin did not do too well.

  • joyce ward

    Yep, Lin will never get a fair shake in the NBA. He will not get a starting job, because the narrative is out on him. He just s need to keep focusing on his game getting better and better,

  • sport

    Lets hope Lin knows his destination for next season already!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He’s a better scorer with his jump shots. He just needs another coach who is always pulled him out to disrupt his rhythm. It seemed that it’s oK to score for everyone but Jeremy.

  • GoodDayLA

    Hill is horrible. Holds the ball way too much and lovesthe fake handoff

  • sws94

    I went to Real GM and they are going on about how Clarkson played so well and played the best PG. I already told the mods there that they are all anti-Lin and it would be a better forum if they had a least one mod that liked his game. I’m really beginning to strongly dislike that site. Clarkson played a lot of ISO ball out there. Sure, he scored, but he does not look that much like a PG.

  • Hm Knicks game at MSG next in 2 days
    Maybe Lin will get 1 more min at 28min!

  • ETC

    What is the point of watching if most of our time is to root for the other team. Highlights are better.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Exactly Rose is kind of plump and slow in moving the ball. He’s not the franchise player anymore.Chicago might have to trade him. How could he go to playoff with games like this!

  • grover chang

    It’s like glimpses of linsanity flashbacks. This game a little rose vs Lin and next game is Lin at MSG!

  • Maknusia

    He played well today

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yeah, exactly, their defense is horrible.

  • GoodDayLA

    100% agree.

  • joyce ward

    Yep. I think he might end up in Dallas, because Mavericks don’t have a bench worth crap. Lin wants to be a part of a contending team. So we will see what offers he gets. I can also see Davis in Dallas backing up Tyson Chandler. Rondo wants a max contract and Cuban ain’t giving that to him. Also Kobe wants Rondo, so Mitch will go along with Kobe’s wishes for his last year on the team

  • sws94

    Lakers don’t win without Hill. He played very well tonight.

  • Alaingrvis

    tbh i can wait

  • in a win, people usually would look at the positives and downplay the negatives.

    Of course, the only exception would be Lin.

  • GoodDayLA

    So u disagree with Joyce ward? You seem to add commentary here that leads to no conclusion or analysis. Could u clarify?

  • MoominFloren

    Didn’t watch the game. Did the game give any implication on the chance of Lin trade? I’m still praying for that………

  • sws94

    They were saying Lin played terrible defense. Lin had a tough time with Brooks but played Rose fine. Basically they mentioned every mistake Lin made but nothing about anything good that he did.

  • we keep hoping one of these games will be Linsanity.
    The problem is BScott keeps getting in the way

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Derrick Rose played with little energy!
    The ball movement was stagnant.

  • Maknusia

    should give DNP-FD

  • Brent Yen

    Not really…to me at least… There is no reason to trade Lin tho…he is not occupying cap space next yr at all

  • yeah, I would skip the Real GM site then.

    Clarkson couldn’t guard Rose at all and Lin had to help

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    You can be sure MOST of the ppl in this site Likes Lin’s game

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Don’t worry; it should take about 10 more games like this to get the job done.

  • joyce ward

    Hill has very low bball IQ. He doesn’t want to play under the rim because I think he is not that physical. He just wants to shoot jumpers. That is why MD didn’t like him because he was a lazy big. He didn’t want to get physical, he just wanted to settle for the jump shot.

  • GoodDayLA

    Many knew early on. glad your coming aboard.

  • Brent Yen

    Not the hand off part…but yes he played well

  • MoominFloren

    Aww………

  • GoodDayLA

    Dallas, Portland or mda. I think that’s it

  • Michael

    How about give BS a DNC.

  • CJSHYY

    Never mind about them… that’s normal bc Lakers won tonight. But think about it, if Kobe on the court tonight, Clarkson would not have any good stats just like Lin… Fans change their mind game by game.

  • Maknusia

    ok DNC-FD

  • leeda harun

    Jc is the lakers product…they should be happy ..lin is only here for a while only

  • CJSHYY

    Did Clarkson play good D on Rose? Don’t think so.

  • Brent Yen

    MDA? where is it?

  • sws94

    Yeah, but Real GM wasn’t bad for the Rockets. I don’t like the mods at the Laker forum. Lakersground has fairer mods and a lot more support for Lin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Their plan is alway to take Lin out in the middle of 4Q and let Clarkson close the game. Ellington will try hard to cover for him. Occasionally Ellington will play PG for a while. As long as everybody is passing, the flow of game will be OK. Clarkson however is not the one who could keep the ball moving.

    Ellington is the one in control of the game.

  • Brent Yen

    Good to know. I will just dwell here, in my Ivory tower…LOL

  • GoodDayLA

    Wherever mdantoni or goerge Karl go

  • Brent Yen

    Because he is in over drive mode..

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    FWIW, some of those drives should be FTs for Lin…

  • Brent Yen

    Oh….I see

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s post game interview. He looks very happy 🙂

  • joyce ward

    I am happy for Clarkson, but he is foll’s gold. When the NBA teams really zero on him and his game, he will be done. These teams strategize their whole game around how to get the ball out of Lin’s hands. Lin has learned all of that the traps and schemes they have out there for him now. Kobe wants Rondo as LA’s staring PG, so we will see how Clarkson lands.

  • Joe what do you know

    Nope. Not only that his crunch time ball handling and court vision was a disaster

  • wandertheglobe

    Why do they even need to evaluate Sacre? He’s 3rd string at best. This whole team is upside down.

  • kittyhead

    I don’t care about what lakers fans think. Since they love the way Kobe has played for years, they tend to appreciate the kind of playing way. That’s ok.

  • joyce ward

    Lin is such a good team mate.Lin just loves the fact that they played as a team and they won. I think Lin likes the unit that he plays with, especially davis/boozer/black. Those bigs get him and he gets them.

  • Brent Yen

    Almost get the feel that Lin is trying not to play with HILL….LOL

  • wandertheglobe

    Orlando is about to fire Jack Vaugh. MDA to Orlando?

  • JoeTeam

    that’s worth reading.

  • JoeTeam

    I wasn’t clocking, but announcers said 12-0 run. Later in OTs, ball moved around a little. Clarkson stopped having racing blinders on.

  • leeda harun

    for me its evaluation time…to make sure that the real talents stay on the roster

  • he definitely likes to win as a team esp. after those 9 losses.
    It’s funny how he tried not to say the word ‘Linsanity’ when talking about going back to NY LOL

  • Rick Johnson

    He should be a SG.

  • chan c

    i mean now, in his current team and state…

  • CJSHYY

    I think Lin is so happy bc they played team ball just like what he said in last interview & won. Bulls lose this game bc Rose ISO too much & had poor shooting night.

  • joyce ward

    You Know what, I am glad that a lot of media are asking questions about Scott not playing Lin. They are not calling him inconsistent. They know that he is that guy that can come in and takeover and win a game for you. They know that he is being marginalized, but they are not ready to step and say the reason why.I just like the fact that Scott is being exposed as a bad coach and kobe as a bully and very bad team mate.

  • blubell

    Already 3 years? wow…

  • hm … ORL has some good young guys
    Oladipo is more an SG too so it’ll mesh well with Lin

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! That’s what I thought…

  • Brent Yen

    This kind of tells you what perception Lin has.. A solid NBA player…just not a starter..but capable of starting

  • leeda harun

    no…jlin is a starter material but they wont give him that chance because lakers want a superstar Pg and not an asian american

  • Brent Yen

    I am just saying in general sense..not just LAL.

  • JoeTeam

    yes it was fun to watch Lin/Rose.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    Exactly. Scott said that this line up will go at least 15-20 games, just enough time for the Allstar game and the trade dead line.I think the next set of starters will be the bench. They want to be nice to Lin, hoping that he will sign with them, because LA doesn’t want to lose their foothold in China. I would not even doubt that the Lakers proposed a business deal with lin/agents about this. just some thoughts

  • Brent Yen

    I am not saying Lin does not care..but…

  • JoeTeam

    they don’t get bball. Clarkson singlehandedly almost lost the game. I mean, JHill on a long midrange 2 from the elbow? Then Rose shorts on the rim?

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    good idea, let the wave of ppl pass, those who cannot see bball and see how Clarkson lost the lead.

  • chan c

    you make it so obvious , coach. he is now your new favorite son 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    Lin’s become a Donald Duck these days.

  • leeda harun

    yes…JC is the new favorite..poor price..

  • JoeTeam

    on of his layup misses?

  • blubell

    As long as he is not Scrooge McDuck 🙂

  • joyce ward

    Scott just trying to keep his job through the rebuild process. I said awhile back, When kobe goes out, who is his loyalties going to, and now we know. Price doesn’t even factor in the equation anymore. That whole staring lineup is an evaluation and to see if any teams will bite for a trade. F/O knows that Clarkson is not a PG, but a scoring guard. Ellington ran the point when he was in with Clarkson. Lin knows what up next season. Notice how Scott is playing Lin, and not price.Lin very happy tonight. At one point he was the only one on the bench standing up and cheering. and the plot thickens…

  • CJSHYY

    Me too. I also think today they really run more team ball & won just like what Lin wants… That’s why he’s so happy in his post game interview even he didn’t close the game or play in OT.

  • JoeTeam

    Lin is carefree.

  • Brent Yen

    Both were fouls……Lin usually stop being driving after he can not get the call.

  • Pete Roces

    BS is full of BS.

  • chan c

    question is, how long will it be until the next ’falling out of grace’?

  • bolero

    Bet Jeremy Lin plays in Golden State next season.— Nate Jones (@JonesOnTheNBA) January 30, 2015

  • CJSHYY

    I really don’t care or mad about what BS said now bc lots of time just BS. He always like this all the time.

  • leeda harun

    sometime i think Lin interviews give FO ideas how to improve the lakers team.

  • Brent Yen

    And see only 6 minutes per game?

  • Rick Johnson

    Lakers won, screwed up the tanking. Lin will be DNP Sunday. Price to play instead. Also not a home game so Buss not as concerned about selling tickets.

  • JoeTeam

    Sometimes he can if he pulls the near-flop out but I agree these game are not worth all the effort. Just clamp it down and play basics. His efficiency numbers are not as good, but most fans just look at the box numbers and don’t know how to divide.

    Clarkson was not too efficient tonight. Some nice highlight plays, but really fell apart down the stretch.

  • blubell

    Haha. Why not Ellington DNP?

  • leeda harun

    no jinx please…

  • CHI PostGame Thread is now open

    http://www.jlinportal.com/g47-chi-lal-postgame-thread/

    Lakers managed not to blow the win in 2OT after letting the Bulls took 9-0 run to get the 1st OT.

    DRose shooting 7-26 simply took out the Bulls offense.

    As for JLin, he managed to get 11pt/5asts with 5-11 shooting in 27 min. Lin started shooting well and drove aggressively in the 1st half with 8pts/3asts with 4-6 good shooting in 12 consecutive min. But he lost the good rhythm as Clarkson played PG in Q3.

    So for 3 consecutive games after DNP, Lin received 28min, 23 min, 27 min but without major roles. Lin’s agent might’ve negotiated 23-28 min consistent playing time after the DNP

    Byron chose to leave the “Rebuilding/Tank” team in 2 OTs. He certainly didn’t want to use Lin/Davis. Price and Black are benched so he wanted to try different lineups to experiment.

    Next game is NY Knicks at MSG. Hopefully Byron will draw more plays for Lin like he did in the HOU game.

    There was a funny moment where Lin smiled after he caused ABrooks to travel.

    Walking back to the direction of the bench, he was smiling wide but stopped suddenly as he saw someone/something (Byron?) that he despised

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I didn’t see any emotion from RP, Black nor Kelly. Sad to witness it.

  • chan c

    yeah, with curry and klay there, where would he be?

  • wow, that’s very curious.
    Betting Lin be the 6th Man to help GSW get championship?

  • CJSHYY

    BTW, did you see RP? BS never talk about him now?!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Anywhere but Lakers, Knicks and Rox for me:-)

  • JoeTeam

    um. no though that’s my dream. GSW is not run by a free cash flow machine like NYK, so they are sensitive to profitability. Plus they are building that very exciting facility so they have to stay within the plan.

  • leeda harun

    well maybe we will find it out soon enough..lol. JC is lucky two mentors to teach him…Nash and Jlin

  • joyce ward

    No lin is not getting anymore DNP’s. Notice how Ronnie Price Is DNP, his little run was over after Kobe got injured.If you notice when they got back to LA, Scott feeding the press this jibberish about I don’t know when lin will play again, that changed very quickly, because Scott got his butt chewed. I think lin/agents turned up the heat on the laker’s FO, then they acted and clamped down on Scott. Then you had lin say that he and Scott talked and that is was a good talk for now.

  • JoeTeam

    Actually, Livingston gets good minutes except for when they are trying things out like with McAdoo, Holiday. Also, the team really shares scoring, so it’s a fun team to be around. We fans wouldn’t be so greedy if Lin were on GSW. Lin would get regular double figures would be my bet, judging by how much Speights, Holiday, Livingston, etc get to eat, etc.

  • JoeTeam

    saw a hot of him, same composure as his post game about 10 days ago. Calm, staring ahead. I felt bad for him, he prob has a family. That LAL drama gave him some good exposure, and the lack of scoring hurt him for long run to. Dunno …

  • joyce ward

    Because he was a means to an end foe Kobe. Kobe didn’t want to share the ball or spotlight with lin. I suspect that Clarkson’s spotlight will be doused soon, because Kobe doesn’t want to have to comeback and compete with him for the spotlight. I wouldn’t be surprised if Clarkson was traded.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    If I’m JLin, I won’t want to. I really dislike Hill’s game. Don’t care much about Sacre. Like Ellington, Davis, Black the most. Only like Boozer and RP when they did well.

  • joyce ward

    He was just a pawn that kobe/scott used to take the spotlight off lin and put it back on Kobe. Trust me, lin is not lost on this. Kobe is out and scott has no more usefulness for Price. Mitch probably told scott, that he was not resigning Price. Also Joe Team, you have to look at who they are playing. I still believe the 1st unit is trade bait. Lakers have no assets, so why not put them out there on display. Notice how lin/boozer/davis/johnson are the 2nd unit and they are playing, so the lakers are evaluating on who they want to keep. I suspect that lin/boozer/davis/johnson will be the staring line up to end the season.Mitch knows that if kobe comes back, no FA is going to sign here, so they will just hangout until Kobe retires and then they start their rebuild. I would not even doubt that contending tends will go after lin/boozer/davis for their bench. We will see what happens, but I am happy because lin seems very happy.

  • kittyhead

    I’m with you! Bet with my friends how many road games Lin will get da DNP-CDs…LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes. Believe he was the first one from where the coaches sat. Black was the second one. Did see cam on them when watching the game. From there I paid more attention to the bench when JLin was on the bench. That’s why I noticed them. Only JLin and Boozer at times cheered for the players on the court esp during 4th qtr and overtimes. None of the bench moved or clapped.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Davis was given only 16 minutes.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers should lose this game in first OT but luck out because Chicago played worse.
    Lin didn’t play too well.
    Ellington was the best player today.
    Clarkson could have lost the game if Derrick Rose didn’t play so horribly.

  • Michael

    Did he get this line from a red cross commercial.

  • chan c

    I’ll take your word on that , Joe. 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    Thanks! If Lin were on GSW now, I’d be in the poorhouse going to every game.

  • JoeTeam

    Me too. With kobe out of the picture for now, there is peace until next year. Look at what a mess Kobe left. I don’t know how true bball team ball LAL fans can take it year after year. I’d move … or find another sport.

    Lin as SG and KT as SF

    Really? Why they didn’t cheer for them? Weird?

  • CJSHYY

    I think Lakers will not sign him for next season but Clarkson.

  • CJSHYY

    I totally agree w you on Price just the excuse to bench Lin & Mitch didn’t like him. I don’t think Price is coming back next season.

    So BS is full of himself? =)

    JLin is a PG period. Any one with a BB IQ knows this. To use him as SG is dumb. Clarkson is not a PG at this time…he is a shooter not a facilitator. When Lin is on the floor with Clarkson it is a slap in the face for all who know the game to have Clarkson remain the PG. You wonder how Lin keeps a good attitude through all this nonsense. It is supernatural! Last night they lost the game even though the score says they didn’t. LA’s bench are virtually all starting material, and the starters are all bench material. It’s back words and the bench had to watch the so called starters in OT, knowing they aren’t the best to be on the floor to win. The Bulls lost the game in the end and were not beat by LA. There was a time that LA was beating them, but that changed in the 4th.
    Until there is a team and coach that commits to our man, JLin, as the PG always then nothing will change for him or for us, his frustrated fans. We love team BB, and the NBA doesn’t. It’s all about the AllStars….ISO, boring…BB. They need to sell tickets and if the average ticket buyer has a low BB IQ then ISO will continue to be bought, as good BB. Give me college ball, and teamwork….much more exciting than this.
    Sorry, I hold back all my thoughts and boom one long post..Lol!

    Psalm. I looked at that Houston game again. I strongly believe that BS DID NOT DRAW any plays for him. This is significant because it shows – Lin can score at will and that BS doesn’t care. Are you disagreeing?

    Thanks

  • DLin

    Livingston averages 17Mins a game this season with GS. Worse than LAL. NO THANKS !!!!!!

    By the way before all this new line up….this is who I liked to see playing together
    PG – Lin
    SG – Ellington
    SF – Black
    C – Davis
    PF – Boozer
    The front court can be switched around some, but these three and maybe Johnson for Black or Boozer on occasion. Swaggy comes in for Ellington if you need a spark!

  • hm, I thought we had videos of Lin sitting on the bench then BScott came surrounded by all assistant coaches. That was quite significant that BScott even talked to him during game (he didn’t during PHX game) much less drew plays for him.

    I haven’t added it to Video Gallery but it should be in Post/Game Thread. we can look for it

    I prefer Ellington to Swaggy. He has more versatility in his game and plays better defense. That lineup isn’t bad but it is missing 3 point gunner. Black and Davis may be redundant. Kelly is the right idea, but he isn’t doing much.

  • JoeTeam

    he was almost gone until he had that monster game and then BSc/Kobe decided to use him because he won’t break out on Kobe.

  • Filler-up

    When Lin is on the floor, Clarkson might bring the ball up but it is Lin who facilitates.

  • Filler-up

    Rose just dropped 30 on GSW the game before. Give the guy a break. He had an off game, probably came in with the wrong mindset.

  • Filler-up

    DRose was defended by Lin for quite a bit. Perhaps that had a role in his bad stats – actually when Lin was guarding him, he rarely shot much.

  • JoeTeam

    maybe, but I sure would like to see Lin get a ring earlier than later.

  • GoodDayLA

    still not impressed. I dont like his style of play. He is very slow footed on both sides. I likes how he was an energy rebounder under MDA. Looked way better.
