G54 BKN @LAL Game Thread

How will Jeremy respond in the 1st game after the 8-day break?

Will his rediscovered passion on playing basketball translate to better pts/asts production?

How will he achieve his 2nd half goals of:

1. cutting down TOs

2. Efficient playmaking including finishing at the rim

Let’s keep hoping, cheering and praying for JLin to play his best in the 1st game of the 2nd half of the season!

Go JLin!  😎

    Go Jeremy!

  • real-dsb

    The past week was pleasant, no Lakers games!

  • lol … no BScott talking is nice indeed

  • real-dsb

    classy move by Steve Blake to give up his jersey number 25 out of respect for Jerome Kersey

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/12354293/steve-blake-portland-trail-blazers-changes-jersey-number-honor-jerome-kersey

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s even better. Sick of hearing nonsense from his big mouth!

  • rookie75094

    the numbers are clear…. Jlin>>>>>> the starting whatever called the wolverine…. even haters from cf are admitting to it…but of course not clutzh the biggest hater

  • rookie75094

    I am so rooting for the mavs to beat the rockets tonight….even with rondo playing…. just for this game only.

  • 1mtoldman

    its going to be hard to out tank the 6ers now that they have the lakers phnx protected pick. as i understand from posts here lakers will play 6ers twice before end of season and sixers genius (his fans seem to think so) hinkie just decimated team again acquiring nothing to sink to the bottom for sure and for more draft picks.

    10 day signee todd frazier or someone like that is the starter 2nite.

    bs will have to have all the tank guns at work.

  • 1mtoldman

    wow….i know how hard that must be for you to give up hate of rondo to root for him; you may not have to divide your affections; last game both barea and harris ouplayed rondo; they mite get the minutes 2nite too.

  • rookie75094

    yes my hate for the huostun rockets and their racist fans even trump my distaste for rondo.

  • 1mtoldman

    the houston hardens. (btw check out chris baldwins piece on houston on last thread if you haven’t already).

  • rookie75094

    thanks for the heads up…yes read it and love it.

  • rookie75094

    to me their is no point discussing the tankers anymore…. minus Jlin of course… so I will just rooting against the Jlin haters and the cursed teams that discarded Jlin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

  • rookie75094

    I wonder if they lock upp Jlin red envelop or they just leave it there…I bet it will be gone the minute Jlin left the place

  • leeda harun

    LETS DO THIS!!!!!!LETS GO JEREMY.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That Young complained about Jeremy not passing the ball is absolutely ridiculous. Jeremy is not the one who took tons of shots; it is quite on the contrary. Young has been a black hole. The Lakers media is making things up to divert the attention that Byron Scott is a horrible coach and this team is simply not playing at their potential as the consequence.

  • 1mtoldman

    young has a staggering and unprecedented (one exception) off the bench in the nba fga to assist ratio of 12 to 1!!!! that’s 12 fga’s for every assist. you need to pass jeremy cause i sure wont.

  • CJSHYY
  • Alaingrvis

    there is a chance lin may return to the rockets. all i heard lin say this all star break was i want to be a better version of what i was on the rox.

  • John Lee

    Yeah, ‘coz saying that he will be a better version of what he is on the Tankers is not really saying much. LOL

  • CJSHYY

    I really hope no Lakers or Rox… but if really no other team then Rox is OK to me bc Lakers is really bad.

  • Alaingrvis

    hahaha

  • Alaingrvis

    ill take anything over this s year. also playoffs i miss the playoff hunt

  • 1mtoldman

    based on trade deadline day when 40% of the players moving were point guards there is a big demand. im confident lin will have choices in free agency. regardless of what he does or doesn’t do rest of season. i mean the majority of the players moving were even by the most anti lin standards objectievely worse than lin and yet still there was a place for them. to me that was a positive development/trend.

  • 1mtoldman

    its going to be hard to out tank the 6ers now that they have the lakers phnx protected pick. as i understand from posts here lakers will play 6ers twice before end of season and sixers genius (his fans seem to think so) hinkie just decimated team again acquiring nothing to sink to the bottom for sure and for more draft picks.

    10 day signee todd frazier or someone like that is the starter 2nite at point guard.

    bs will have to have all the tank guns at work.

    some wag on comments board on 6ers game tonite has avatar of ralphie from the simpsons with the quote” hey sam i have a crayon to trade what you got”

    sixers had actually won a few games and i thought it was going to be strictly a family affair with the knicks/lakers race to the bottom but now that 6ers have that pick and two games against lakers with their even worse lineup it will be hard for the lakers to “not prioritize winning” better than hinkie the master. (he’s been at it longer than anyone i think). the amazing thing to me his 6ers fans seem to think hes a genius and doing the right thing by stockpiling draft picks. smh.

  • Alaingrvis

    no way dallas sign rando long term

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly

  • leeda harun

    never underestimate Mark Cuban…

  • Alaingrvis

    he is so bad. god he better thank the boston big three for the rest of his life

  • 1mtoldman

    rockets started out tonite 8 0 and 11 4 than dallas took rondo out and now theyre back in the game.

  • Grace Nsns

    Listened to Morey’s interview a bit he said that Pat Beverley’s
    presence on the team was a factor in Goran not choosing rox as both players are represented by the same agent, Bill Duffy. Wow the agents nowadays do hold some power.

  • Grace Nsns

    Coach’s trying to blend him in, paring him up with Nowitzki all the time, it gonna take time.

  • leeda harun

    dont believe it.Just give Dragic the money and the position….maybe Dragic will come back to Houston.Afterall Machale always like Dragic

  • Brent Yen

    Will be on the road during game time…. hope Lin a good game

  • Grace Nsns

    Dragic stated he wants to be ‘the PG’, rox can’t give him this, Harden’s going to hold the ball >70% of time.

  • leeda harun

    Morey is good at PR…

  • bolero

    Nah, that’s young sarcasm.

  • CJSHYY

    Show Dragic the money, he will call Rox his dream home. LOL! I don’t think Rox will pay Dragic 20M per year. Harden will not allow that to happen.

  • John Lee

    Excuse for failing to get Dragic back. Dragic trusts Morey even less than he does the Suns.

  • Grace Nsns

    Rox bench terrible, they need a true ball handler badly.

  • leeda harun

    They used to have one…he is an Asian by the way….

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah everyone knows that morey has poisoned any houston chances of getting any quality players, he’s just trying to reach for a straw to divert attention from himself. (read chris baldwins latest post on last thread for further details).

  • rookie75094

    best of both worlds… the mavs spanking the rockets with minimal rondo help….hahaha

  • Alaingrvis

    bev i having a terrible year

  • BobbyH

    They used to have a starting PG that can take them deep into playoff.

  • 1mtoldman

    i told you! you could have yer cake and eat it too; rockets were winning till dallas removed rondo; barea and harris getting the minutes and mavs winning.

  • rookie75094

    I love that there is more discussion about other teams than on the tankers… hehe

  • Samuel

    And watch Rockets to buy Rondo in this offseason, their fans will miss Lin even more after this year..

  • 1mtoldman

    actually 2 be fair bev isnt having that terrible a year. its just before he was hyped and now hes blamed. he has more points per game and assists per game than last year. and shooting a higher 3 pt %. just has abl status no longer necessary. and so hes the new sg for the houston hardens. actually almost everyone lin fans predicted this.

    sg for scapegoat not shooting guard.

  • rookie75094

    it’s actually simple really…rondo in…mavs suck…. rondo out…mavs awesome… I hope Cuban is not too dumb to see it… hehe

  • rookie75094

    lol derick rose 8pts 2 asst 6 tov… talking about elite…hahaha

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • rookie75094

    with the tankers…. not even the hotties will help Jlin… hehe

  • John Lee

    Knicks and Sixers both tanking hard, though the Magic victory relieves some pressure for the Tankers. I’m hoping karma works OT so Tankers lose the protected pick despite tanking to bottom five.

  • rookie75094

    I am glad melt down is a regular occurance over cf on rockets game day….hehehe…. melt baby melt!!!

  • 1mtoldman

    the key thing here is sixers now have the pick (from suns) and if posters here in past were correct have 2 games against lakers between now and end of season…and hinkie just decimated team again for more picks. bs will have to bring out the heavy tank guns.

  • rookie75094

    yes him and rondo…. hehe…jk

  • rookie75094

    RPG17 the anti tank weapon will ruin bs plan… that is my prediction and I am sticking to it.

  • 1mtoldman

    for detroit tonite no brandon jennings (injured) no d.j. augustine (traded) no reggie jackson (not yet available) and facing as you say yes the great d. rose.

    no problem! spencer dinwiddie in yes his first nba start outplays rose.

    dinwiddie 12 pts 9 assists 3 steals. (rose stats remained to end of game thos his fg % dropped to 2 for 9 )

  • rookie75094

    rondo with another tov…hehe

  • rookie75094

    it’s also great to see that the wolverine is bricking 3’s…hehehe

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • rookie75094

    rondo score 10 points…. reason… harden is guarding him.

  • rookie75094

    I am so conflicted watching the mavs and the rox…. especially when you want to see both of them fail…

  • kauaiblue

    Rather watch rox go down…

  • rookie75094

    yes agree …. I do hate the rox more.

  • kauaiblue

    Montejunes is awesome

  • rookie75094

    rondo jump up and throws the ball away…. haters: crickets,crickets…

  • rookie75094

    agree… I have him on my fantasy team… go dmo

  • Alaingrvis

    lol bev turned rando into a shooter

  • rookie75094

    yes the two defensive scrubs are helping each other…hehehe

  • rookie75094

    josh smith does not see any bad shots that he does not like…. hahaha

  • rookie75094

    what I found comical is the racists at cf are touting prigioni the fossil they just got from the knicks… haha

  • rookie75094

    mavs up by 20…without rondo…nice

  • Samuel

    Rondo is having his best offense night as a Mav, 6-9 for 12 points, and guess who is on him tonight? that’s right, the Mr. elite..
    Meanwhile, Mr. elite only shoots just 1-7 for 3 points. Maybe Rockets can just trade Bev to the Mavs for fat felton? should be an upgrade for them..

  • rookie75094

    no… mark Cuban will beg Jlin to play for the mavs this summer

  • rookie75094

    I still remember Jlin beat mavs last year with harden sitting out… oh how time have changed….the rox are missing Jlin big time just about right now.

  • rookie75094

    oh boy got to mute stu on the tv now…go Jlin

  • rookie75094

    stoo is touting everyone on the tankers and the nets but Jlin…. how predictable… mute for real now…hehe

  • rookie75094

    lol rondo came in …mavs lead down to 14…. just like clock work.

  • rookie75094

    Charlie v came to the rondo’s rescue.

  • rookie75094

    wow rondo just threw the ball away from the out of bound…lol

  • rookie75094

    tankers game starting…and that is about it.

  • rookie75094

    mavs lead down to 10… thanks a lot… looking at you rondo!!

  • rookie75094

    I guess every one is waiting for Jlin to come in the game to joint the chat… lol

  • Maknusia

    lol…..u know…thats what excites us

  • rookie75094

    mavs lead down to 8 and carlise finally woke up and took out rondo

  • Maknusia

    meanwhile your updates are fulfilling 🙂

  • rookie75094

    thanks…hehe

  • Rick Johnson
  • LAJane

    My fantasy trade – Rondo for Lin

  • rookie75094

    mavs lead down to 6…. I love how rondo is losing the game for the mavs…hahaha

  • Maknusia

    JC being aggressive on offensive end

  • sws94

    He looks great so far.

  • rookie75094

    I hope Jlin is allow to do the same

  • rookie75094

    jc is fools gold

  • sws94

    He just has to do it. No more allowed to or not. Go in to the game, drive, shoot when it is there, dish when it makes sense. Don’t let Young run the show, he runs the show. He has to change his approach I think.

  • rookie75094

    yeah then get bench for doing it is what get my blood boiled.

  • David Kim

    i am glad that i didn’t go to watch the tanking game. LOL

  • sws94

    I hope he looks good when he comes in, refreshed and effective.

  • rookie75094

    Jlin at the scorer table…get ready everyone…lol

  • rookie75094

    here ihe comes

  • sws94

    Lin and Price are in together. Huh?

  • rookie75094

    Jlin and price in together

  • David Kim

    Price playing PG..

  • golfhacker

    Violet Palmer one of the refs. Don’t expect Lin to get any foul calls in his favor from her.

  • rookie75094

    yup… Jlin to the corner ..I guess… sigh

  • David Kim

    Lin 3!!!!!

  • rookie75094

    Jlin for 3

  • Alaingrvis

    a 2

  • rookie75094

    price doing the assist and Jlin doing the scoring… I am ok with that

  • Alaingrvis

    brooklyn announcer try to build the game up but it isn’t working

  • kauaiblue

    Pass the ball u scrub price

  • blubell

    better than listening to lakers feed…

  • rookie75094

    monte ellis just save rondo’s butt… back to Jlin… hehe

  • Alaingrvis

    lol it don’t matter anymore

  • kauaiblue

    How boring… nets so shortsighted… having linsanity.in brooklyn? I live in brooklyn!

  • kauaiblue

    What?

  • Alaingrvis

    no i want lin with a good coach not brooklyn

  • rookie75094

    he won the game and save rondo from embarassment

  • kauaiblue

    Nice shoes

  • kauaiblue

    Oh cool… rox lost

  • rookie75094

    Jlin was wide open and hill pass the ball away and tov

  • sws94

    I think Price looks good so far. Lin, besides hitting the 3, doesn’t seem that involved in the offense.

  • Alaingrvis

    do i have to watch this pick up basketball game. not a quarter in and all I’m thinking is what a waste of time

  • Maknusia

    He is hungry

  • Alaingrvis

    it was a 2

  • kauaiblue

    Yeah… im almost going to go read 100 years of solitude

  • rookie75094

    price with the dunk…and stooo had an orrrgaaaasssmmmm…. yeah I took the game off mute…hehe

  • blubell

    They’re not passing to Jeremy

  • sws94

    Does Lin look to get the ball enough? Why isn’t he in the offense more?

  • Alaingrvis

    it doesn’t matter

  • Maknusia

    lol

  • sws94

    Listening to Bklyn announcers is easier.

  • Maknusia

    Good defensive pressure from lin, even he lost the ball

  • Dorothy

    3333333333333333333

  • Alaingrvis

    now a 3

  • rookie75094

    Jlin for 3

  • sport

    Wow Brookyln’s crowd is LOUD for both teams, feels like NYC!

  • Maknusia

    Lin for a 3!!!!

  • rookie75094

    mini Linsanity run… and bs took out lin….F you bs

  • sws94

    Is Lin still in or out now?

  • Maknusia

    Yeah…good pass to Hill, unfortunately he was pushed…so no assist there

  • LAJane

    HAHAHAHA

  • sport

    Entire lineup just taken out except Hill including Lin!

  • Maknusia

    As soon as you asked…he was pulled out!

  • blubell

    No need to watch til end of 3Q

  • sws94

    Too soon.

  • blubell
  • sws94

    Byron is just putting in whoever he feels like in whatever combinations. Did Wesley Johnson play yet? Where is Boozer? Is he injured or sick?

  • rookie75094

    is there another game to watch?

  • sport

    Lakers Bigs always mess up Lin’s assists, they make Asik look like a star!

  • Alaingrvis

    byron continues to not understand momentum

  • Maknusia

    standard rotation from BScott

  • blubell

    He never understood it.

  • sws94

    Right, among other things. Doesn’t have a good feel for the game or player flow.

  • rookie75094

    he doesn’t even understands basketball ..let alone momentum

  • sport

    Phew I got Brooklyn!

  • Maknusia

    he never did…stubborn with his rotation timing

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    lol…thats true as well

  • Alaingrvis

    its like japanese algebra lol wink wink

  • sws94

    So he’s going to DNP Boozer?

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    wow

  • rookie75094

    boozer turn for dnp-cd

  • sport

    They seriously think Paul George can return?! Are they crazy? Dude just had a serious broken leg injury!

  • Maknusia

    that was hard push on Hill, so not blaming him there

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    both not played yet

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    from last year on the rox

  • rookie75094

    watch the starters losing the lead going to halftime… just like clock work

  • blubell

    Haha… yes. I got your wink wink lol.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Are “momentum” and “line-up” foreign words to BS? Why in the world again is this guy hired as coach?

    OH WAIT…

  • Maknusia

    lol…yeah you are correct….that …..was the purpose

  • rookie75094

    except Darren William is playing for the tnkerrs as well… hehe

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    the art of tanking…. part 1 section 1

  • Maknusia

    101…he mastered and perfected it!

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    at least it’s Friday night and I don’t have to work tomorrow

  • Linja

    They count one 3’s and one 2’s, why?

  • rookie75094

    there goes the lead

  • Alaingrvis

    wait till the third

  • blubell

    When the tank is at its peak.

  • blubell

    School of BS.

  • Alaingrvis

    always

  • sport

    aww it would’ve been a highlight if Black made that dunk!

  • Alaingrvis

    nick young this year has showed he is not as good as sold but also scots slow system has screwed him

  • Maknusia

    thats correct…90% of the time its during Q3

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    on the happier note…the mavs beat the rox despite rondo best attempt to screw it up…back to the tankers game

  • Maknusia

    free intake…anyone interested?

  • sport

    Good!

  • rookie75094

    tankers up by 1…halftime…bs must be fuming..hahaha

  • blubell
  • sport

    Don’t like Young as much after saying Lin doesn’t pass when he’s the one ball hogging!

  • Maknusia

    i did read that…but was there a video on it?

  • Alaingrvis

    hard to say if he was joking or not. he jokes a lot

  • David Kim

    Because Boozer refused to buyout? LOL

  • rookie75094

    Lord…..I love to see the tankers win by the margin of Jlin points… Thank you in advance Lord.

  • sport

    Heat looking good and like a contender even without Lebron. Nice to have such a great coach in Spolestra, Dragic is lucky to end up in Miami!

  • Maknusia

    Pretty much everyone had double digit points!

  • Alaingrvis

    its crazy lin gets hot for 1 minute and nearly goes for a big run yet clarkson and price hold the ball all day to no affect

  • rookie75094

    yeah.. Jlin is special like that…that is why I am his fan no matter what

  • Alaingrvis

    yea then he is taken out

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • rookie75094

    bs is actually a robot and is programed with the tanking protocol… I love to see bs malfunction one of these days

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    bs halftime tanking speech must be very inspiring… lol

  • rookie75094

    jc airball..lol

  • Maknusia

    Nets is pushing it…as usual…its Q3!!

  • rookie75094

    and just like that tankers down by 8

  • Alaingrvis

    2 minutes 9 point shift

  • sport

    Can Lin just come back in already?

  • rookie75094

    yes…at least I want to see a close loss

  • Maknusia

    8pts lead…is just crazy

  • Alaingrvis

    scott never makes in game changes. his head would explode

  • rookie75094

    I feel sorry for lakers fans… so quiet

  • Alaingrvis

    scott brings in davis and hill to do what exactly

  • sport

    Price and Hill comes in before Lin =/

  • golfhacker

    Honestly, I think the fans are ok with losing (tanking).

  • Maknusia

    and price

  • rookie75094

    bs learn from his mistake… it was a close call with Jlin had a mini linsanity run

  • Maknusia

    not bad…JHill is getting hot

  • Alaingrvis

    everyone before lin

  • rookie75094

    wow price with a brick

  • Alaingrvis

    still down by 9

  • rookie75094

    that brick should bounce off bs head and take him out for this game… then Jlin will win it for us Lin fans..hehe

  • Maknusia

    aint that winning, is BScott’s book?

  • Maknusia

    lets not cross the line here 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    a lot of players who scores but have zero affect on the game

  • rookie75094

    I said just for this game… not the whole remainder of the season… hehe

  • rookie75094

    Jlin in

  • rookie75094

    and score

  • Maknusia

    hahaha

  • Alaingrvis

    lin scores despite continuos insults

  • rookie75094

    another mini linsanity?

  • blubell

    followed by benchsanity.

  • rookie75094

    ny still scoreless

  • Maknusia

    thats LIN

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    ny is building a brick mansion

  • John Lee

    That was the original plan, current progress puts him on pace for Khalifa Tower 2.0.

  • Alaingrvis

    yo why is price hogging the ball

  • rookie75094

    head of snake…garter snake that is

  • sport

    He thinks he’s the starting PG! SMH, taking the finally quarter shot with a drive. Sorry dude you’re not Lin!

  • sws94

    That was an ill-advised shot. Otherwise, he plays ok. He’s better not shooting.

  • Alaingrvis

    he took the last two both missed

  • rookie75094

    this game is just going according to bs tanking plan… smh

  • Maknusia

    Looks like Price is made as pg and Lin as SG

  • Alaingrvis

    and hill has 11 shots

  • sws94

    It’s looking like DNPs for Boozer and Wesley Johnson.

  • Alaingrvis

    scott is a weird cat

  • blubell

    Deron Williams always playing extra hard against Jeremy. Still having Linsanity nightmares? lol.

  • John Lee

    DW can only ravage tanking teams these days.

  • John Lee

    Actually a compliment getting DNP from tanking coach.

  • rookie75094

    but not anti tanking player… Jlin schooled him as usual

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah they’re completely on board; in fact some are concerned the organization is not doing enuf to ensure tanking. actually its now called “not prioritizing winning”.

  • rookie75094

    omg…Jlin got a foul call by violet palmer

  • Alaingrvis

    2 in a row

  • rookie75094

    yes

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers play zero defense

  • John Lee

    Violet Palmer’s off her game, must be tanking too. LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    this offseason in has to work on his free throws

  • blubell

    Argh…free throws…

  • 1mtoldman

    lin appears to have his game back after those two physically ill games before the break. just get 10 points tonite and dont get hurt and its all good. lin does his thing within the tanking strategy in minimal minutes.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If he passed it would be a charge

  • Alaingrvis

    hill plays less defense then boozer

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No interior, Hill is jsut so bad.

  • rookie75094

    good decision Jlin… don’t listen to stooo

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    not sure who’s worse

  • 1mtoldman

    brook lopez eating up lakers “bigs”

  • 1mtoldman

    lin leading lakers in points per minute tonite.

  • John Lee

    Spurs really losing steam, they could sure use a healthy dose of Linsanity next season (or this season, should buyout take place).

  • Alaingrvis

    with boozer the team played good defense

  • blubell

    Young – 0/5fg

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I am crying inside watching Lin going rouge.

  • rookie75094

    ny is messing up Jlin assists…. better shut your mounth about Jlin not passing

  • blubell

    13 pts and counting 🙂

  • sport

    Lin hitting that jumper like a boss!

  • rookie75094

    J score again

  • John Lee

    He’s got nothing left except his mouth, kind of jinxed himself after IDM.

  • 1mtoldman

    continues his torrid tank shooting.

  • rookie75094

    about time ny

  • Maknusia

    LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Don’t make me chose between F and F-.

  • blubell

    I Do Miss

  • golfhacker

    ESPN has Lin 4/5. When was his missed shot? I missed that one.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has 5 shots hill has 12 lol who has more points

  • sws94

    I think a 3 or long 2, clock was winding down.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes you did

  • sport

    Wow is Young being iced out? Those were his first points! Glad Lin isn’t passing so much anymore! Gotta look for his points!

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    last second mess up by ny..and J has to shoot

  • Alaingrvis

    he threw one up when nick lost the ball with a second left

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well the word “effective” is foreign to Lakers coach

  • 1mtoldman

    thanks mike

  • 1mtoldman

    could jeopardize the tank.

  • golfhacker

    Ah, thanks.

  • sport

    It was the bail out shot.

  • 1mtoldman

    ok now lin is not only leading the team in points per minutes hes (tied) leading in scoring period; with the fewest minutes played of anyone on the team who actually set foot on the floor.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    uh i said that already. but i dont have a cute avatar.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Yes Lin hitting all his shots except the bail out one!

  • Gigi

    I’m not watching the game. So Jeremy is completely playing as shooting guard? No shared point guard duties with Price?

  • blubell

    Wooohoooo… Linsanity…. then bench 🙁

  • Maknusia

    Lin shows he can be a effective SG as well

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Damn fast.

  • rookie75094

    17 for Jlin… please bs don’t put the fake starters back for the love of God!!!!

  • blubell

    sorry 🙂

  • sport

    No taking turns bringing the ball up but Price is passing to Lin even when he’s PG. Price did hog a few shots but still passing to Lin and ignoring Young. LOL Lin had made all his shots except the bail out one! 17 points!! Mini Linsanity game! New York crowd is always is crazy for Lin!

  • cshot

    plz let lin finish

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Needs to tank. Will put starters in.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin wanted Price to forward the ball fast

  • sws94

    He can get 20 in this game, maybe Byron will let him finish.

  • sport

    I like this changed Lin, finally understand he needs to be score first, pass second PG!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Why do I get the feeling that a lot of people are still complaining that Jeremy ONLY has 17 points, ONLY a measly 7 shots…

  • WooHoo!! 17pts for #17
    Only 1 TO

    Efficient playmaking and cut down TOs 😀

  • Me Likey! haha..

  • sws94

    He’s playing SG.

  • blubell

    Still giving Deron Williams the shivers. lol.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin plays defense alone should earn him 30 min per game.

  • Rick Johnson

    Young not doing anything. Put Ellington back in.

  • Gigi

    Lol, well I’m glad Price can identify who the hot player is…I wouldn’t want to pass to 1 out of 7 Young either. Ha

  • sport

    Still brings the ball up occasionally!

  • Even better LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin should ask for buyout tomorrow.

  • blubell

    Why not today 🙂

  • John Lee

    Jeremy was the only true friend Young had, who insisted on passing to him despite the slump.
    Then the ingrate dissed Jeremy.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Shower and sleep

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Nick, seriously after so many shot attempts? Maybe you should be the one to pass more.

  • sport

    Lin should’ve taken the shot himself he was wide open but he took it back out =/

  • blubell

    no time… need to get out now!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Price is much better and smarter than Clarkson to play point.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea i sw that it happen it as fast paced. as long as the lakers are plying fast idc its lin style

  • sport

    Young also not getting passes.

  • blubell
  • sweaty buyout is OK too =)

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    come on Jlin… Please blow up the tankers plan!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nonsense, nobody hit every open shot.

  • blubell
  • sport

    Because we want 20+ and Mini Linsanity?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    he wiill

  • golfhacker

    I think Sport meant for Lin to drive to the basket.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I personally think “Linefficiency” (I shudder) is much better because everything follows from there.

  • Maknusia

    interesting BScott leaving Lin in there

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He can buy me out whether he’s sweaty or not…

  • Maknusia

    stil LAL dont understand team ball, just chucking shots and hoping to go in…sigh

  • blubell

    BS foul!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Are you fking me, foul?

  • Gigi

    I’m glad because the 2nd unit deserves to finish.

  • Jeremy’s shoulder just fouled Anderson’s shirt?

  • Maknusia

    true

  • rookie75094

    violet palmer giveth… and violet palmer taketh…smh

  • Alaingrvis

    i cant believe that got a call late in the game

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    his airspace.

  • sport

    Refs with the BS foul calls on Lin again!!

  • Alaingrvis

    if lakers can be this i have no issue watching win or lose

  • rookie75094

    and yes I am greedy… I want the win in addition to Jlin awsome game

  • that was so unbelievably bad that it should be reviewed

  • Maknusia

    he was playing more of a SG and only during 4thQ, some nice back and forth between him and RPrice

  • blubell

    I’m tired of losing. Jeremy deserves to win.

  • John Lee

    *facepalm*

  • that was certainly curious, perhaps to determine next lineup

  • blubell

    So close….

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    damn fast

  • golfhacker

    Next year)

  • Maknusia

    lol….nothing is enough…I’m fine even BS pulls him out now…Lin has his numbers….its all good

  • 18!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He can buy me out of my family house and bring me anywhere, @disqus_W4kOOens57:disqus! hehehe

  • Maknusia

    19

  • Alaingrvis

    his ft has been bad for 2 months now

  • sws94

    Lin has to practice his FTs.

  • Alaingrvis

    nope

  • FT bugaboo again 🙁

  • golfhacker

    Lin’s FTs are ridiculous.

  • Maknusia

    yeah man…was hoping for a 19!…but who cares…he played well

  • Alaingrvis

    every time lakers lose third quarter is the culprit

  • Maknusia

    WOW…didnt realize Lin would be the highest score for LAL…!

  • Nets announcer was surprised at Lin’s reaction at Bogdanovic for scoring the go-ahead layup with time expiring

  • sport

    Lin’s FTs been very off this season =/

  • blubell

    Jeremy could have had 20+ pts… oh well. this was a nice game.

  • rookie75094

    the tankers would have won the game if the starters were reversed… F bs!!!!

  • blubell

    Stay classy.

  • sport

    Wow Lin was mad even talked to that Nets player who made that last shot instead of taking time off the clock for the win.

  • sport

    Missed way too many FTs =/ Gotta make those since he gets hit at the rim so much!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I find his efficiency more interesting

  • blubell
  • good leadership by Lin to call out the unsportsmanlike conduct not to run out the clock

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    stay classy my friend lol nets

  • John Lee

    Jeremy team-high in scoring. Stuff it, Stu.

  • Vocal leadership by Lin to keep up the sportmanship

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    There’s only one true Free Taco bringer on the Tankers.

  • Alaingrvis

    idc if price is pg lakers still play real ball with lin at sg. the starters look like imposter nba players. scott has to start the bench then i bet we win some game which maybe counter productive to the goal but the nba has to deal with this tanking mess. to not play the best players for draft picks

  • sport

    Lin really needs to work on his FTs they’re horrible this season especially for a PG! He made almost every shot, really efficient!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    in 9 shots; that is efficient. Lin is still adjusting his arc for shots and that is not good for FTs.

  • FrankW

    18 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, 1 turnover, 1 steal, 3 personal fouls, +/- +0 , in 24 minutes.
    Excellent, keep it up Jeremy.

  • sport

    Waiting for highlights.

  • he’s still at 77% but his concentration can definitely be better.
    He needs the free buckets for sure

  • Maknusia

    Great Game from LIN post ASG!….Keep It Going Jeremy!

  • FrankW

    6-9 from the field, 1-4 3 points, 5-8 free throws

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    By design. Byron Scott wants Ronnie Price, his head of snake to get assists and Jeremy is moved to the SG position.

  • I’m so glad he achieved his 2 goals tonight =)

  • blubell

    Recover!

  • Gigi

    Hoping he can get it back up to 80% before the end of the season…

  • sport

    Yes especially when he gets hammered so much at the rim!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Carlos Boozer gets a DNP.

  • sport

    90% would be better.

  • sws94

    Ellington is good, but Sacre, Kelly, just no. Black hasn’t looked that great lately either.

  • rookie75094

    Just be glad Jlin doesn’t shoot ft like rondo… hehe

  • sport

    Still need Price to pass to Lin instead of Young for Lin to score! I was surprised seem like Young was being iced out not sure why.

  • Alaingrvis

    without lin he is athletic for nothing. lin makes players like that good. like jones last year

  • Maknusia

    Still Lin proved he is capable..

  • blubell
  • He Remembers too!
    the 2 goals =)

  • sws94

    So Boozer is DNP CD just because.

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    and WJohnson

  • blubell

    Boozer is DNP because BS

  • sws94

    Yeah. But Johnson is sometimes playing and you don’t realize he’s out there.

  • FrankW

    Deron Williams played 40 minutes and if Jeremy Lin played 40
    minutes he would have 30 points.

  • Maknusia

    true…lol…didnt really miss him…i guess

  • blubell

    lol.

  • John Lee

    Current tank standings:

    1) NYK: 10-44 .185 GB –
    2) PHI: 12-42 .222 GB 2
    2) MIN: 12-42 .222 GB 2
    4) LAL: 13-41 .241 GB 3
    5) ORL: 18-39 .316 GB 6.5

    BS giving his all for the protected pick, closing in fast on PHI and MIN.

  • blubell

    Deron Williams needs to thank BS for not playing Jeremy 40 min 🙂

  • blubell
  • LOL yes .. Wes is one “stealth” player!

  • blubell

    So he is not blind… interesting. lol
    https://twitter.com/bgarcia90/status/569014993334575105

  • rookie75094

    he will have Linsanity nightmare tonight… lol… waking up in the middle of the night with cold sweats….hehehe

  • sport

    Johnson sucks so glad he’s benched.

  • John Lee

    And the makeup of the first unit was dictated by…?

  • blubell

    mission accomplished!

  • 1mtoldman

    well i would agree with you except we are old fashioned; ive studied this and most fans of most tanking teams (its now called “not prioritizing winning”) consider this a perfectly acceptable strategy and applaud their teams for doing so. hinkie’s fans in philly consider him a genius and his unloading two better players at trade deadlin plus picking up more picks including the option on the suns/lakers pick is considered exciting. in fact many people in la. are angry with the lakers for not more fully embracing this strategy.

    of course the bench players (on lakers) are vastly superior players to the starters. the idea is: if you can’t win anyway now, lose big to acquire draft picks. and it will be very hard for the lakers to keep their pick with philly now owing it should the lakers falter and actually win some games because lakers/philly play twice between now and end of season and there’s pretty much no credible players left on sixers now. (imagine an entire team of lakers starters quality).

    so. roll out the tanks. er “not prioritizing winning”.

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    He knew for a long time but just wanted to tank…

  • 1mtoldman

    how many point guards in the nba you think shoot 90%?

  • 1mtoldman

    77% is far from horrible. slightly below average “for a p.g.”

  • blubell

    HAHAHAHAHA… he doesn’t know what winning is.
    https://twitter.com/bgarcia90/status/569015674196004864

  • John Lee

    “I’m serious”…and then “I don’t know”? SMH

  • rookie75094

    he may not be blind… but he is certainly dumb and deaf?… paraphrasing the WHO…hehe

  • he let the 2nd unit close tonight to test if they’re “ExcitingButStillTankWorthy”.
    And they passed! (thanks to Young) haha..
    I think he might allow them to start soon

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    As a coach, he is used to losing… a lot.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Classic BS.

  • 1mtoldman

    im amazed. he seemed to have his game back after the two “sickly” games before the break and get his points and quality play (high shooting %) high scoring per minutes. (best on team besides most points). great game. best of both worlds; lakers get their tank and lin gets to look good. i doubt that fine a compromise can exist ever game. but hey it worked tonite.

  • John Lee

    Right, which is why Boozer was DNP tonight. Does he hear himself talk?

  • rookie75094

    and no mention of the game high scorer… that’s bs alright

  • 1mtoldman

    translated: “i seriously dont know”.

  • CJSHYY

    Bc that’s the way BS likes it… Young helped BS to tank….

  • sport

    Except for those BS foul calls on Lin by refs and missing FTs. He can’t control foul calls but he can control his FTs and make them pay more at the charity stripe!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That ungrateful thing!

  • John Lee

    Good thing that he competed too, otherwise his FG% might’ve been in the negative.

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    funny

  • Chipdip

    because he is not pleased with old man Lin out there to spoil BS’s tanking game

  • sws94

    He’s pitiful.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin plays with the least minutes for the bench.

  • he just summed up his coaching career.. =)

  • 1mtoldman

    secret tanking weapon. long range bomber with almost 80% failure rate.

  • blubell

    Seriously.

  • sport

    Hmm when has BS coached a winning team?

  • rookie75094

    that’s bs way of saying… if I am not smart, I am stupid as stupid does…

  • FrankW

    Lin was 82.3% last season. He could have pushed close to 90%.

    Steve Nash for one was 90% + and it took him 7 seasons.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron didn’t drill Lin to tired feet.

  • CJSHYY

    Young maybe miss the shot on purpose… smh!

  • 1mtoldman

    the games with philly will be critical. hinkie has been at this longer and jettisoned some serious decent players at the deadline. (course putting the ball in his court by pulling the lakers pick from the suns).

  • John Lee

    He was actually aiming outside the basket, so he was SPOT ON.

  • BuzzerBeater

    So great to see Jeremy had a good game, let’s keep it going.
    End the season positive and strong and sign with a better team next season.

    I wonder if Carlos will get interviewed, kinda hope he does and calls out Byron for being awful.

  • 1mtoldman

    the amazing vanishing player. true and correct its not really much different whether johnson is on the court or not.

  • Acbc

    Too many tiger moms tonight. Come on, the guy just scored 18! yet people want to squeeze out a few more like it matters. Every other star player has ups and downs, yet we expect him to shoot 50/40/90.

    It’s like a golfer who just shoot 59 and fans complain about the 2 footer he missed to shoot 58.

  • John Lee

    Advantage: Sixers, who don’t have an anti-tank weapon whose agents secured 20 min PT for.

  • 1mtoldman

    curry’s the only one this year.

  • He alienated everyone. But he seriously doesn’t know why he kept getting fired from his job?
    Wow … speechless

  • rookie75094

    I am ecstatic with Jlin game tonight… fwiw

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    coach to fail.

  • John Lee

    The David Copperfield of the NBA.

  • 18pts in 24 min?
    I’m good =)

  • blubell

    He is just a terrible communicator and shouldn’t be coaching.

  • BuzzerBeater

    FTs have been such a pain this season, we know he’s a better FT shooter then this season shows so I’ll just blame it on the suckiness of this season in general.

  • 1mtoldman

    swaggy is the ideal secret weapon for tanking cause he’s only concerned with his swag.

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    i think mainly its just 1 or 2 repeating themselves.

  • joyce ward
  • 1mtoldman

    yep.

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    its sort of a kind of musical chairs.

  • leeda harun

    A good game Jeremy 🙂

  • Arsenium12 .

    Boy, the lights must be bright at the Staples Center. More importantly, good game Jeremy. …

    https://twitter.com/LA_TripleThreat/status/569014922882846720

  • blubell

    Nice recovery 🙂

  • sport

    Not going to settle for 18 because we know Lin could’ve made 20+ pts if he made his FTs.

  • MoominFloren

    Lin 18 pts, Tankers lost…….I’m satisfied :))

  • TTNN

    LOL, Young: they are a good team, need to give them credit, they make big plays and shot big shots.

    Is he talking about nets?

  • BuzzerBeater

    well that was anti-climatic! lol

  • CJSHYY

    So Boozer join the club for tanking now… smh!

  • joyce ward
  • blubell

    Highlights!!

  • CJSHYY

    So, he missed the shot on purpose to help BS to loss the game…

  • TTNN

    the team is tanking, there is no point to be upset.

  • Alaingrvis

    atleast scott treats everyone like crap

  • rookie75094

    actually a pretty good night for me…the rox lost ,the mavs win with rondo sucking it, and Jlin had a very good game…. I am completely satisfy .

  • 1mtoldman

    he seemed to acheive what he said he would. im impressed.

  • blubell
  • Acbc

    The perfect trifecta!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol enough said

  • John Lee

    Equal Opportunity Offender.

  • John Lee

    Caption: “which one of these two fingers is the middle finger?”

  • blubell

    Minus Kobe of course.

  • John Lee

    More like “the clown is not worth it”.

  • joyce ward
  • blubell

    Whatever Worthy…

  • CJSHYY

    I think Boozer will stay w Lakers next season that’s why he didn’t care about his stats like he used to… Now he supported his lousy coach?!

  • Alaingrvis

    well kobe would smack him lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The tankers: W L
    New York 10 44
    Minnesota 12 42
    76er 12 42
    LA Lakers 13 41
    NY is leading the tankers but LA seems to be catching up with losses

  • blubell
  • Grace Nsns

    lol

  • joyce ward

    Why post this drivel that worthy speaks. He is so wishy washy…smh

  • sport

    LOL Price should start? Yea they are totally rooting for the tank now!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Boozer has already given up on Byron.
    Whatever, Boozer is going to the East next season; he can still play.

  • Maknusia

    smart guy

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    most of us are good with it….you sure the complain was from here?!! hmmm

  • joyce ward
  • Maknusia

    He said it…Big Picture=Tanking…we get it!

  • rookie75094

    bs is a liar… Jlin is not even sniffing 30 minutes…let alone 48 minutes…hehe

  • That Lincredible speed kills =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordan Hill just can’t roll with passes.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol evryone has had a chance to start at this point either way lin will be gone in three months

  • Gigi

    The fact that Byron thinks insulting his players is a possible solution to their team woes is ridiculous.

  • rookie75094

    now it is worthy turn to be dead to me…. talk to the hand worthy…talk to the hand

  • blubell

    ……

  • So … did Bogdanovic have the honor of being the 1st player Jeremy Lin went after for unsportmanship conduct? =)
    Gotta love Lin going after guys breaking the unwritten rule of not scoring when they will certainly win.

  • Tey Ling

    Why should BS be upset now? He wants to tank, so tanking here we come. Does he just realized that he has the worst coach in wins for the lakers in history? The tanking route has been ingrained and there is no time to change course.

  • sport

    First time seeing Lin bicker with opposing teammates, he’s growing and being more vocal 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    LoL
    Byron has been bringing Lakers the big pics.

  • Maknusia

    I dont mind…so that we would know..what are these “worthy” guys are saying….its still “news” spin

  • sport

    No, there’s no use in arguing about minutes when the team is tanking.

  • Yup…Glad a lot of people see the Lincandescent Fire!

  • joyce ward

    We all know what they are going to say. They give lin no props at all even when he plays well. Why is this news worthy?..smh

  • Maknusia

    Do we Fans need to Insult you in order…you do properly coach?!

  • CJSHYY

    But this guy also said JC looks more & more like RW? Didn’t watch when he played… Do you feel the same way?!

  • Maknusia

    man! this sounds crazier than crazy

  • joyce ward
  • David Kim

    Mike Trudel tweeted

    Scott said that he may change the entire line up as soon as next game. He didn’t like the energy in the 3rd after a good 1st half.

  • Maknusia

    Personally, I’m fine with JC’s game for a rookie

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    Did he really play like RW?

  • BuzzerBeater

    Bogdanovic, the first inductee to Jeremy’s “Hall of Shame”

  • Maknusia

    haha….that would be fan’s talk I guess

  • blubell

    Who else is talking to your hand beside Worthy now? lol

  • Tey Ling

    BS still didn’t get it, he has been out coached by all opponents thus far. The opposing coach has adjusted to lakers game strategy whereas BS still remain in the dream world. What a joke.

  • joyce ward

    Scott is full of crap. He was instructed to change the starting line-up. He is still acting like he is the man. You read what Mitch said today, that they are building for the future and that they are not going to bring in some old vets to help kobe when one last championship before he retires.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Basically BS will insult to tank.

  • Tey Ling

    What were Lin’s words?

  • I didn’t watch how JC played tonight.
    Clarkson plays with raw athleticism but he’s still far from being compared to RW, esp. the shooting
    He played quite well as a rookie but not ready yet, sometimes looks lost like all rookies do.

    But both play like an SG, not so much like a PG.
    Then again, Lin played as an SG tonight =)

  • CJSHYY

    Do you really believe Lakers will not sign Kobe again in 2016? I hope Lin will not really buy the story… smh!

  • joyce ward

    Not at all. Everybody is always praising Westbrook, but if you watch how he plays, he plays very reckless most of the time. When he is pitted against a good defender, his game is exposed.

  • Maknusia

    Agreed…to his credit, he did some good plays tonite

  • CJSHYY

    So what? If none of them are making the shots? They still can loss the game.

    Price is just is just like Beverly, can’t shoot well. Price is not that great odf a passer either. Lin/Price will be the duo for last games of the season because Price is trying to get Price another contract, which I don’t think Mitch will bite. I think Mitch has some definite plans about the the future of the Lakers and he doesn’t really seem to care what fans, Magic Johnson, and to some extent what kobe thinks.

  • joyce ward

    Then Clutch would have to ban most of the posters on the site, because they all are singing the same tune about Beverly. One poster even said that Howard finally realized that lin made him look good, because he would actually try to get him the ball.

  • DancingBarry at LG gave a big smiley grin to Lin

    Lin — —

    He came in with Ronnie in both halves at the SG spot. Ronnie would take the lead guard role at first, but they would share duties with some nice chemistry as the game went along. Lin liked what he saw from how they ran things and communicated. Aside from missing a few too many FTs tonight, good game from Lin. He helped the Lakers dig out of the huge fourth quarter hole they were in. Had he sunk a sideline three with 3 minutes left, they would have cut it to 6 with plenty of time left. That would have made things interesting. Loved seeing him yap at the Nets for a late basket that the Nets could have run out the clock at end the game. Really want him to play with more of that chip on his shoulder. DFish was a nice guy off the court, but played with a chippy abrasiveness on the court that I wish Lin added to his mental game. Good job tonight. Glad Scott sat Wes instead of Lin to get Ronnie minutes, instead of getting Lin a DNP like he did last time.

    The Stats:

    He scored 18 points on 6-9 shooting (1-4 from three, 5-8 from the line) to go with 1 board, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover and 3 fouls in 24 minutes. He had a +/- of 0.

    The Action:

    He swished a wing jumper on the Price kickout. He was picked on the perimeter for a breakaway. He sank a wide open corner three. He attacked and fed Davis for the layup.

    Second Half:

    He took a kickout, attacked off the three line and scored a layup. He attacked the lane and dumped it off to Ed for the easy layup. He missed a wing jumper. He attacked later on the same possession and drew FTs getting knocked in the head, he made one. He blew past his man who tried to pressure him and drew more FTs next time down, he made just one again. He drew more FTs in transition (lucky it wasn’t a charge) and made both. He sank a step-back wing jumper. He probed baseline and then hit the turnaround jumper. He scored a bustout layup a few seconds later on the outlet from Price. He missed a three out of a timeout. He missed a big sideline three that could have cut it to 6 with 3 minutes left. He attacked quickly off the inbounds and missed the easy And-1 layup, he made just one FT.

    I guess Harden felt the cold shoulder in Beijing during his 2014 visit, and Les feeling the abandonment of his Chinese sponsors. They may want Bev gone, but in this day and age of ABJ, I wouldn’t trust the org unless both Morey and McHale are gone.

    Jeremy Lin trade failure still haunts Rockets: Dumb disrespect fuels Daryl Morey’s trade deadline bungling – Chris Baldwin

    And the Houston Rockets remain stuck in the muck of their own making, as far from an NBA championship as ever.

    In many ways, these Rockets are still being haunted by the dumb dump trade Morey made over the summer. Jettisoning Jeremy Lin is the move that’s helped hold Morey’s so-called masterpiece back.

    The fact that Lin’s been completely misused this season by the one coach in the NBA who is more clueless than Kevin McHale cannot change one simple truth. This Rockets team would be much better off if it had the type of scoring, playmaking, ability to get to the rim and improved 3-point shooting that Lin provides to go along with Harden’s undeniable brilliance.

    Letting Chandler Parsons go after everything else fell apart remains dumb, but somewhat defensible. But giving away Lin is the “Kick Me” sign that only the foaming craziness of the Lin Haters shields Morey from.

    At the time, the Lin dump got spun as a move that the Rockets needed to do to clear maximum cap space for Chris Bosh. In reality, Morey backed the Rockets into a corner when he childishly completely disrespected Lin by putting his No. 7 jersey on Carmelo Anthony in that ridiculously inept recruiting campaign. Once the Rockets general manager did that, there was no way he could bring Jeremy Lin back.

    And every team in the league knew it. Morey forced himself into making a bad trade — and Houston’s still paying for it. Even if Leslie Alexanderis not.

    The Rockets did not just lose Lin either. The organization’s clearly lost credibility with big-time players.

    Sad Jeremy Lin Fallout

    The sad thing is that everyone loses in this situation. Harden is left shouldering an untenable burden, forced to push a bigger and bigger rock up the hill. The Beard deserves everything he’s gotten this season — the league MVP talk, the Sports Illustrated cover, the praise from people who used to crucify him. But he’s in a no-win playoff situation.

    Then there’s Jeremy Lin . . . stuck on a horrific team that has no interest in winning this season, playing for a coach who seems determined to show management there’s no talent on his roster and it’s absolutely not even one percent his fault. Once Steve Nash bowed out and the Lakers gave up any thought of competing, Lin never had a chance.

    Houston needed Jeremy Lin to absolutely rescue them in one of their two playoff wins against the Blazers (see his 21 points off the bench in Game 5) and set up the winning three in the other with a near Larry Bird level play. Now, coming out of the deadline, the Rockets are still almost completely dependent on an exposed Patrick Beverley at point guard.

    James Harden deserves some credit for recognizing the Rockets had something in Lin even as Morey and McHale refused to do so. Harden’s gone out of his way to praise Lin this season. These two always largely got along, as shown by their recent teaming up on a Chinese New Year ad for the NBA.

    This bad summer dump continues to hover over these Rockets like a cloud, no matter how much the professional and amateur Lin Haters alike cry otherwise. That last chance at a feel-good ending sure looks long gone.

    It’s lounging in South Beach, feet up and back turned.

  • 1mtoldman

    andre miller is quoted as saying: that “he” ie george karl “knows how to deal with players and egos and thats’ why hes been so successful in the league”.

  • 1mtoldman

    i pointed that out earlier here that 40% of the players moved on deadline were point guards. even the most virulent lin hater would have to acknowledge that many of those were certainly not nearly as desireable in terms of historic production and future potential as lin. so yeah there seems to be a high demand for point guards. which bodes well.

  • Acbc

    The real problem is that CF was a henchman for Morey’s agenda to prove that he was right to get rid of Lin the first time. No matter how much CF and Cluts have sellers remorse with Lin, nothing will change unless Morey decides he can gain something from having Lin back. M&M proved once already that they’d rather lose than let Lin shine. I have little faith in them changing overnight.

  • grover chang

    some players will have their shooting coach periodically stop by and work with them throughout the season. Even the great Dirk has his coach come all the way from Germany to shore up his shot and get back into rhythm. Maybe more Doc is the answer, not less. There is no textbook jumpshot, just a consistent, repetitive form is most important.

  • KL

    Lin did everything I had hoped for. Good stats while maintaining efficiency and playing the right way. Hope for some wins soon cause that will pressure the tank commander. Free throws need improving.

    Still, Lin has again found a way to thrive in a ridiculous situation and more changes (i.e. playing alongside Price).

    Give Lin adequate and consistent minutes, teammates he can build chemistry with, better coaching emphasising teamball and Lin will do really well.

  • grover chang

    That kid isn’t shy, making the most of the opportunity to hug Lin.

  • grover chang

    Really, Lin 18 pts and Davis 14 rebounds. Scott can’t be this dense. Everyone, even a casual fan could see Lin and Davis from preseason to present are magic together. These two should be the head of a two headed Serpent. Lin is a Dragon and Davis is a snake.

  • Acbc

    That’s why I said just a little slack in his chains. Last night he was put into a position to score as SG with Price helping. Lin made the most of it. Just as easily, BS can say to Lin to pass more and for Price to set up Swaggy.

    DNP was never going to happen so close to Chinese New Year and Asian fan base.

    I think DB likes LIn, he’s fair. I don’t even go to Real GM Lakers board anymore with Kilroy and Slava and the other “mods” there that don’t like Lin’s game and get into the Lin fans are annoying stuff. DB and some of the other mods at Lakers ground show the proper way to mod and they aren’t afraid to look at Lin and know what he can do and how he’s been shackled by Byron.

  • sws94

    I don’t want to see Lin back in Houston, though. The press there is, I’ll be nice, unenlightened. And Clutch Fans is run by that obnoxious punk that even blocked me from Twitter because I dared challenge him in a place where he holds no power and exposed how nasty he was to Jeremy.

    I think a lot of us are looking for a place where Lin can play his game going into his prime years now and the press is fair. The press isn’t bad in LA, they just suck up to Byron too much and don’t call him out enough. But Houston, no. We’ll see what happens and I hope Lin has mostly games like he did last night until the end of the season. I liked how he played last night.

    As for Beverley, he was going to be exposed sooner or later and the CF mob there would turn on him. Parsons was their golden boy and they turned on him. They’ll turn on Harden too, they’ll turn on anyone. They are a bunch of losers there, many of them. There are few decent members there.

  • sws94

    Some people on the Spurs board have made some derogatory racist comments about Lin too. I’m just not sure about Texas at all. I’m sure there are lots of good people in Texas, but there are enough idiots to make Lin’s life unpleasant there even if he plays well. There’s a bunch that don’t seem to accept Asians.

    Clutch fans and Rockets deserve a Beverly max contract for many years to come. Going back to Houston would be like going back to a sick relationship with the naive hope that the other has changed

  • KL

    A thought just occurred to me. Any team that seriously wants to get Lin is likely to keep quiet about it. If they were very public in their interest, it would alert and trigger the interest of their competitors. Displaying interest would also result in paying a higher price. I mean, nobody expected the Lakers to make the trade for Lin in the past offseason.

    So there is hope that Lin would land up in a good team, even if we are not hearing any rumours right now.

Even if you include the “Game Action and Roster Moves” forum the “Jeremy Lin as a Los Angeles Laker” thread is one of the biggest threads on the site.

    Love him or hate him, they seem mesmerized by Jeremy Lin.

  • Rzo Vlade

    i have a feeling….for a male point……hahahahahahahahah theres something

  • Rzo Vlade

    lol she is married

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, she is. She and her mother together are hilarious..LOL

  • Acbc

    Anyone who has felt the anger and blind rage from being unable to achieve your own goals because of people in power blocking your every turn will know why I feel so badly for Lin. It hurts so bad because I’ve lived it in my 20s. It’s like you are drowning in an ocean of turmoil that you struggle to keep you’re head above only to have some faceless oppressor push you under for another count. The level of self hate, anger and blind rage can be overwhelming to the point of self destruction. THIS IS THE INTERNAL BATTLE LIN HAS TO DEAL WITH. How Lin handles this mass of negativity is incredible to me that I am totally astounded and in total awe of his internal fortitude.

    It took Quite a few years for me to resolve many of those issues, but with love and kindness, I eventually overcame those negative emotions.

    Every once in a while I can get annoyed by Lin fans who harp on the imperfections of Lin’s game. Why is it that Lin HAS TO BE PERFECT, when no other superstars are? WHY DO WE SUCCUMB TO THE LEVEL OF DEMANDS THAT HATERS HAVE FOR LIN? During Linsanity, haters were quick to criticize every little fault he had. Meanwhile he was breaking records set by the superstars like Lebron, Westbrook, Durant and DWil. These guys never had to be judged the same way. THEY NEVER WERE JUDGED BY THEIR FAULTS AND ONLY WAS JUDGED BY THEIR POTENTIALS. they were allowed to be developed into superstars. Lin on the other hand has been pushed down further and further into a sea of negativity. HOW LIN HAS BEEN ABLE TO CONTINUE TO IMPROVE IS BEYOND MY COMPREHENSION.

    I AM ANNOYED WHEN LIN FANS JOIN IN THIS CHORUS OF NEGATIVITY. IT DOUBLY PAINS ME THAT THOSE OF US WHO CARE ABOUT LIN DON’T REALIZE HOW DEBILITATING IT IS TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH HATERS WHO DEMAND PERFECTION, ONLY HAVE HIS OWN FANS DO THE SAME.

  • Martinez

    Harden&Lin miss this!

  • joyce ward

    Well said.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lin – enough said.
    Young – NO. For the love of mashed potatoes, NO.
    Johnson – Lukewarm.
    Boozers – Sure
    Davis – Package this guy with Jeremy Lin and you get a dynamic duo
    Hill – ?????

  • joyce ward

    I am loving Lin’s attitude of late. I like the fact that he got on that player last night after LA had conceded the game and the player went on down the floor to score. There is an unwritten rule in NBA to do this is considered unsportsmanlike behavior. Also I think Lin is finding his voice on the team, and he is learning how to tune out out Scott. I might be the odd man out, but I think F/O likes lin, but the Lakers are in a precarious situation because they are tanking and they know if they unleash lin, he would win games for them. That is why the Laker media, Worthy and the likes are upset. Lin doesn’t fit their mold on what a starting PG should look like from the Lakers. He is not black and didn’t come from meager means. Mitch did his little song and dance number about Scott doing a good job, because that is all they can say, because they are tanking. Mitch also kind of put Kobe on notice yesterday, when he said that he wasn’t going to give a vet a whole lot of money to come in and try to help kobe win another championship. He also said that kobe will be a part of the rebuild process next year, but it will not be team’s focus to get another championship. I think that Mitch plays everything close to his chest. He will only tell you what he wants to tell you.jmo

  • CJSHYY

    So what do you think about Mitch & FO want Lakers to do next season? Tank or rebuild w/o Kobe in the future? Do they consider Lin is also part of the plan?

  • FrankW

    Best revenge is to prosper, live well and long and be happy.

  • George Livingston

    Bev will get a huge contract…McMorey created a narrative that Beverly was this incredible defensive stopper in order to get rid of Jeremy. Every time I hear someone talk about Beverly on national broadcasts, they alway mention his defensive prowess. Jeremy should never go back to the Rockets- they treat players not named Harden/Howard horribly….and at some point, they will get rid of those two without any issue. They have no class…..remember the Carmelo Anthony jersey incident…remember how Jeremy got cut on Christmas day.

  • George Livingston

    I am praying right now that Jeremy NEVER ends up with the Rockets again. I don’t need to see anymore of this:

    1) Harden screaming at Jeremy for not getting him the ball
    2) Play-off losses blamed openly on Jeremy
    3) His jersey number showing up on a prospective player prior to even moving Jeremy
    4) Mchale’s open criticisms of Jeremy (remember that Philly game where he had like 9 3s, they lost and he blamed him for doing a clear-out and taking a 3 to tie the game)
    5) Getting cut on Christmas day

    This is an awful and classless organization. Morey is hailed as a statistical genius, but the irony is that he doesn’t care at all about stats anymore. The only thing he cares about is placating Harden. The fact that they are now throwing Beverly under the bus speaks volumes…I don’t know if you remember that game where Beverly came back from injury, and Mchale said “Boy..it’s great to have you back” and gave him a huge bear hug.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe is done with his next season contract.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    rockets are not his problem now. BS and TW Sports are.

  • George Livingston

    BS and TW Sports are temporary issues. It’s likely he won’t be with the Lakers next year…and I think it wouldn’t be good for his career if he does stay. I get the feeling that there is a number of Lin fans that wouldn’t mind him going back to Houston…and thus I am stating my case for people to remember who the real Rockets are.

  • FrankW

    Here’s to you Bojan Bogdanovic for making that uncalled-for last layup when the score was 114 to 103 rather than running the clock down with remaining 5 seconds – Ronnie made both free throws and Lin had the steal. Okay Bogdanovic is a rookie, don’t do it again.

    So what did Lin said to the Nets bench and to Deron Williams? Lin was pretty alpha about it and welling to take them all on.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    make no diff what fans want, it will come down to Jermy himself

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    …and Lopez got 1 TO.

  • George Livingston

    No offense intended, but I disagree with you on that one. In this day of social media, fan opinion is pretty relevant. Words and narrative are created by agendas and repeated in the social media universe, and eventually become “the truth”….ie Houston would be the best place for Jeremy. If overwhelming public opinion becomes that Jeremy should go back to Houston, this could influence the decision on both sides- for the Rockets and Jeremy. I think it does make a difference.

  • joyce ward

    I think they do. I think that Lakers want model themselves after the Spurs. They want to grow their own. I think Mitch likes lin’s toughness, attitude, and his unselfishness. I think Mitch knows that under the right coach, lin would flourish. Also, the Lakers know that they had a big foot into China with Kobe. They are going to loose that stronghold. Lin is in a very tough situation. Lin knows that any team he goes to will be the same crap all over again. One thing that has happened since he has been on Laker’s team, Kobe/Scott have been exposed and have brought much shame to Laker organization. I think that lin is beginning to understand that scott is a bufoon and that it is all a part of an scheme so that they can tank. Scott picks on Lin/Young because he knows that they just give him the finger at what he says.(that’s Scott’s way of toughening them up…LOL) I do think whenever Scott takes things too far with Lin/Young, the F/O yanks Scott’s chain and pulls him back in place. Call me crazy, but I think Lakers make lin an offer, and it will be up to lin/team as to whether to take it.

  • FrankW

    Sure did and plus one foul to boot. I guess Brook was not happy about Bogdanovic either.

    Williams looked passive when facing the wrath of Lin.

  • joyce ward

    I think one of the players on the bench said something and lin responded and the coach laughed. I think Williams kind of looked away when lin was talking to him.

  • joyce ward

    BS/TCW will do whatever the Laker F/O want them to do. If the Lakers want lin to stay, you will see how fast the narrative changes on lin. Scott/TCW are puppets when it comes to the Lakers. Also TCW is not stupid either, why do you think they are always posting pics of lin on their network, despite what the Scott cronies say. TCW/Laker F/O understands the bottom line is about money and viewership ratings.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He never forget he’s the victim of linsani ty

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yeah there must be someone pulling the strings

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I’m hoping lin will ask for a buyout so he can joint the Cavs or another playoff team. Nothing left this season in LA now.

  • joyce ward

    Why would lin ask for a buyout? Lin will finish out the season with the Lakers and go someplacelse. I am sure the Lakers will make him an offer, but don’t think lin will take it.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    So we can see the real drama in post season and I don’t trust BS in the final month of what he gonna do. No guarantee lin can get his stats.

  • joyce ward

    Good team scouts have already scouted lin. The narrative has changed that lin is not getting enough playing time. Nobody is talking about his TO’s, or his defense anymore because has cleaned that up.

  • joyce ward

    Also, who knows, maybe the F/O made a deal with lin in letting him play to get his stats up after the way they have treated him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If you have doubt that lin will not stay in LA then why not explore with another playoff team now?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Maybe and maybe not

  • Rzo Vlade

    to mods after this season can we get a poll of all nba teams and member of this site will chose where jlin will land, will offer or jlin will pick……members will only chose 1…..just for fun

  • joyce ward

    Who says if he takes the buyout, a team will pick him up? Besides Lin is not the type to run from a fight. He will stay to the bitter end and make the best out of it, that is Lin’s personality. The translation for me when lin said he didn’t let his family/agent talk about FA as I am tired of moving.

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    I love Steve Novak:)

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s why I wrote I was hoping.

  • CJSHYY

    I feel the same way… don’t think Lin wants to have buyout either.

  • joyce ward

    OK:) We all know Lin, Scott has thrown down the gauntlet and lin will take up the challenge. Lin understands this, Young, not so much. He is still looking for the hookups for fans to give a break when he plays poorly

  • joyce ward

    He doesn’t. If you notice what he said after ASG,Translation: I am willing to take up up any obstacle/challenge that you throw at me, because I am a fighter, not a quitter.

  • joyce ward

    Also Lin drove by him a couple of times with relative ease. LOL

  • bolero

    D. Wiliams is too old for Lin now..lol

  • joyce ward

    Notice how the Lakers are trying to play it up that Nash is mentoring Clarkson and he is texting him, but never mention that lin/nash have been doing the same thing all season. It is never mentioned because lin doesn’t reveal that it is happening.

  • 22cents

    Yeah. ^_^.

    Hello Moderator. What’s with my posts being “Held” then discarded? Is there something wrong?

  • JoeTeam

    now that’s the narrative that rings true!

  • JoeTeam

    because he has proof in his own life that things turn around if you abide by your own path. It’s a touchy belief. I’ve met ppl who escaped their countries on boats, and on one case, they jumped off a thirsty boat to swim to an island. Everyone else stayed and might have died. They lived because on the other side of the island, there was a refugee camp. So, this guy … he would always say no to his manager, because what his dad taught him … go with your own belief or you die. Another guy was washed overboard at night, and grasped and caught a tow rope. He climbed back on board. So he believes that luck plays a great role in life.

    The ying/yang of magical events, one has to manage the beliefs it spawns …

  • gasparthe2

    Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3. If Lin stays with the Lakers, then the team may need to acquire a REAL coach.

  • JoeTeam

    did you notice announcers harping on Lin for missing that layup and-1 and also, when he complained about the unsportsmanlike conduct? I thought it was weird, like they didn’t get the memo …

  • 1mtoldman

    my gf and i love to watch her on what ever that show is we call “up the chute” where they throw someone’s clothes “up the chute”. and go give them a make over. then we go thru and throw each others clothes “up the chute” figuratively but literally getting rid of anything the other thinks is ugly and tasteless.

    (someone should do that with lins perpetual adias flip flops) .

  • 1mtoldman

    if you notice trade dealine as someone on here answered when i pointed out that all the deals took place just in the last few minutes that anyone actually seriously contemplating something keeps their “cards close to the vest”. of all the rumors that come out; when something actually happens usually its something no one predicted. l

  • JoeTeam

    Relax ac … you are awesome. The Lin fans to harp on Lin are not really doing it from a belief system, but a need to cope with life by criticizing someone clearly levels beyond themselves. That’s the nature of online life – you can in 2 sentences be better than anyone, and the cost in working at being good FOR everyone is gone. It will continue their isolation.

    The solution of course is to look inward, at what journey exhibited travails offer us. I learn from every Lin hurdle and his response. Harping on him does me, him, and other fans no good. Learning from his responses, reflecting on how it can be employed in my life, etc … well, let’s just say as an old man I’m green and growing. The Lin fans you are upset at are ripe-you-rot and that is a sad thing at any age. I do have my rotting days, though …

    “All hail Sam Hinkie.

    The Sixers …..combined “performance” on Thursday and Friday made this ascent inevitable. Philadelphia dealt away two of its top four players, Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels, for virtually no return prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, and in its first contest following that decision, Brett Brown’s club trailed by 20-plus points in a bad home loss to the Pacers.

    It is fair to say that Philadelphia has been better than New York this season, and I would agree with you. However, the Sixers have executed a tanking plan that is like nothing we’ve ever seen in the NBA,” —-brad roland, fansided

    bs will have to bring out the big tank guns if expects to outduel hinkie to the bottom to hold that pick now that its in hinkies hands and lakers have 2 games with philly before the end of the season.

    the lakers have what 28 games left? looking at the schedule i think the only games they might have to worry about “not prioritizing winning” are those two against the master hinkie’s minions. which would make them what 15 and 67

    oh they have a game with east coast version of the lakers from the buss/jackson stable. the nicks so i guess they could get up to 16 and 66 that would have a nice ring to it.

    how does that compare with historic futility?

    They could start Clarkson at SG and Lin at PG. But of course it would take a good coach see that.

  • 1mtoldman

    fans hate chalmers/cole; they got rid of cole and chalmers to the bench. chalmers numbers are similar to lins actually but obviously he was utilized much more opportunity to get those numbers. and he shots dreadful %.

    i see yer point with cole gone ….but the reason dragic left phnx (he said) was because wanted to be a point guard. he wouldn’t come here if he was going to “just stand in the corner” and as i said chalmers cant be a sg because he can’t shoot.

    wade i thought said at the asg that he would be ready to go? yes no? if not then it gets pretty thin. yeah. but chalmers pretty sure has been set down.

    imagine would what be the reaction if lin said things like that.

    Nor sure yet but I am not happy about why JC is still start? If Lin is really coming off bench that just show Lin is not part of their future indeed. No matter what? I hope Lin can out of Lakers next season.

    “Two days before the Thunder’s season opener in Portland, Jackson sprained his ankle and missed the team’s first two games. In their third game, the Nov. 1 home opener against the Nuggets, Jackson was cleared to play, but according to a source, refused to because of disappointment that he wasn’t traded before the Oct. 31 extension deadline for first-round picks entering their fourth season, like Harden before him. Jackson spoke at shootaround that morning, coyly saying he probably wouldn’t play that night. Immediately after finishing his session, he grabbed a ball and threw down an impressive drop-step windmill dunk — in front of reporters and his teammates. Remember: This was when the Thunder were piecing together a roster without Durant and Westbrook, and only had eight active players available.”

    Jeremy Lin should never be compared to this guy.

  • Rick Johnson

    Needs to do something about his free throws too. I’m sure he practices tons so not sure it’s just that he needs to practice. Is his back spasms bothering him? Is it a psychological thing due to bad coach and tanking team?

    There were so many blown assists. Hill blew his shot after that full court pass from Jeremy!

    certainly agree but back to my issues: looks like probably if they decide novak is worth keeping for sharpshooter that woudl be perry jones and jeremy lamb being dropped from bench but again a larger question i dont know the answer too: generally when a team has players on their 15 man roster who have been on the 13 man bench–what happens to them when someone comes back from injury or a trade comes in whatever and they want to keep these players on their 15 man roster technically where do they, where can they put them to hold on to them but keep on their 13 man bench.

  • 1mtoldman

    thats what their fans thing but i mean i dont know how knight and bledsoe will work together but obviously dragic didn’t want to be there. by my accounting knight was the best player moved at the t.d.

    how he will fit in phnx dont’ know i guess milw moved him because they thought they couldn’t resign him next year but still in the middle of playoffs i think milw is more damaged than phnx.

    Haha. This is why I think LIN likes Naruto who has the nine tail fox demon in him that has fed on the anger of being hated and feared by the leaf village (LIN meanwhile is hated and feared by the NBA). I think he knows all too well the negativity heaped upon him by haters and doubters that seeks to drown and snuff him out. Recently he has talked about being spiritually ready and just yesterday he asked for a prayer group support. Is he asking for spiritual support to quell that demon fox of anger, doubt and hate within him?

    Every once in a while my demon fox slips out and reminds me of those negative feelings and I wind up howling at the moon.

    Mo Williams is really a stud being traded around the league. He’s a heck of a player contributed significantly to Timberwolves and now to the Hornets. He’s the reason that the Hornets is still contending for a playoff spot. Lance Stephenson simply doesn’t have it.

    Dragic’s first game as a Heat in 1st half 15 min 0-5, 0 point 0 AS… Wade run the O most of the time… Dragic sure will miss Sun a lot…. No one pass the ball to him just like Lin … Change the team in mid-season it’s really not a good idea. smh! I really think he made a huge mistake to leave Sun.

  • MoominFloren

    Poor Young. He’s not great but he’s good enough to start in this Tankers. Even he’s in shooting slump at the moment, he deserves to start.

    I think this is an honour to be benched or DNP in a tanking team, right? Guess who is the first one to be benched and DNP? That’s our boy, the Anti Tank Lin!

    A whiner comes in with max contract and dragging his brother along, there’s just no way ANYONE on the team is taking it well. Everyone’s probably thinking “what gives?”

  • MoominFloren

    He’s catching up now 4/9 FGM

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! W 2nd unit he is running the point now.

  • John Lee

    Mavs used to have 3 Chandlers!

  • MoominFloren

    Imagine if Dragic brothers still on this team….

  • sport

    Pelicans are a really good team, I’m surprised thought they were great only because of Davis, got some players who can knock down 3s and great rim protection.

  • 1mtoldman

    i thought that too. actually i sort of still think that. just think its the “new” heat that haven’t figured out how to integrate their lineup.

  • 1mtoldman

    actually there arent 2 b knights it only seems that way; 1 b knight 1 b wright.

  • MoominFloren

    Yes you’re right. Thx

  • sport

    True and the fact that they’re missing one of their star players Bosh.

  • Yascar

    Oops yeah you’re right. A Brendan Wright and a Brandon Knight? Right? lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Too bad OKC won big with their new 7 footer!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Suns is losing in the 4Q to Chicago. A Brooks is such a big addition to Chicago that proves Morey doesn’t know about talent when he got one.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Chicago is kicking the butt of the Suns with its 2nd unit!
    ABrooks starts hitting his shots in 4Q
    Defense is holding the Suns at bay.
    17:8 in 4Q

    Nets (2011-2012) had Deron, Jordan, Shawns and Sheldon – all
    Williams.

  • JoeTeam

    You are indeed human living alive and in truth.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Pelicans’ Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson go down with injuries that could be serious. Already missing Jrue Holiday too.

    OKC must’ve cast a voodoo spell on them to steal the 8th spot. How rude. Not like this OKC, not like this.

  • CJSHYY

    Plus Sun maybe it’s not as good as past after traded Dragic & IT away… I think OKC will make it to playoff this season.

  • Sunny Sullenberger

    Rockets vs Raptors
    PB FGM-A : 1-8
    K Lowry FGM-A:2-13

    Jeremy accomplished his goals to cut down on TOs (1TO) and having efficient playmaking (18pts/2asts in only 24 min). Jeremy has played well mostly as an SG next to Price who played PG. But Jeremy also had the chance to be a PG in the 4th quarter. Let’s hope this “score first/pass second” mentality continue to help Jeremy with great stats to help his Free Agency in the summer. In this team, he’s their best threat of scoring because he can score so many different ways so he should be the primary scoring threat to make defense collapse on him which open up space more his teammates to score.

    Paul Villareal also made an interesting observation that Jeremy has learned to play within a system when he’s not the main playmaker which allowed him to have great game in DEN and BKN games. Let’s hope Lin continues to solve the puzzle of thriving in the ineffective Princeton Tanking (Prince-Tank) system.

    Let’s go, JLin!

  • JoeTeam

    Lin needs a guy like price to give him the ball … worked well earlier in the season. Clarkson and NY both waste too many balls, ruining the team flow. Price is experienced.

  • Acbc

    Raptors beat Atlanta yesterday. It was a schedule lost back to back on the road. ROX were lucky because Lew Williams was out with injury from game against Atlanta. L Williams scored 7/10 3s off bench to kill Atlanta.

  • sws94

    He’s got to get into the move faster and dribbling out in front without turning his body leaves him vulnerable to get it stripped, especially with longer defenders.

  • Brent Yen

    In a sense he needs to do what harden does…

  • FrankW

    Kyle Lowey 37 minutes, 11 points, 7 turnovers
    DeRoazn 38 minutes. 10 points, 5 turnovers
    Beverley 25 minutes, 3 points, 3 turnovers
    Bledsoe, 32 minutes, 13 points, 5 turnovers

  • sport

    Lin needs to work with a PG who doesn’t chuck as many shots and Price can’t score.

  • Filler-up

    Bledsoe is going to suffer without Dragic next to him.

  • Sophie Paris

    It stands for “babe”/”baby”…
