Time to find out!

Go JLin!  😎

  • 1mtoldman

    my 2nd 1st

  • blubell

    So close 🙂

  • bolero

    2nd?

  • 1mtoldman

    2nd time i’ve been 1st 2 post.

  • 1mtoldman

    as reported earlier by this and other sources okc so deep now after trade deadline; i dont even know who they’ll drop from 13 man bench when durant and adams return. blowing out denver (another in the triad of tanker teams with ex laker coaches,) without durant.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Reading the tweets, depending on prognosis on Durant second surgery, he may not be returned too soon.

  • Jedi

    Missed cos I was out buying roast duck!

  • David Kim

    Byron Scott echoed his comment at shootaround that Boozer would start tonight. Tarik Black goes to the bench, other 4 starters remain.

  • joyce ward
  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • joyce ward
  • real-dsb

    Scott: “The one thing I want to do is make sure these guys stay hungry. I don’t want guys to feel comfortable that they’re going to play 25, 30
    minutes a night. Also, I might just play all 12 guys and it’ll be a
    little over 20 minutes for each guy.”

    Scott’s pretty much already started every player on the team at some point. Now he’s going back to Boozer and maybe Price. At what point will he realize that he’s the one not getting it done?

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • 1mtoldman

    steph curry must be mvp; without him gs lose to indiana.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    If and only if they can make it to playoffs.

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    GS lost to Indiana; Indiana runs for the playoff.
    Detroit wins today too.
    Boston must win to keep in the thick of the playoff chase.
    Brooklyn doesn’t play to day

    Charlotte Hornet is in trouble even with the addition of Mo Williams. The team needs too much help.
    Miami is in trouble without their max contract Chris Bosch gone for the season.

    6 teams are running for 2 spots and the competition is tough.

    The West is really non-exciting with the Thunders oust the Phoenix for sure.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hope that he gets into the flow of game and doesn’t force things by himself.

  • joyce ward

    76er’s lost too, so their tank is becoming more secure

  • 1mtoldman

    hinkie is the master tanker. most experience.

  • joyce ward
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Dallas is the team to watch.
    Amar’e Stoudemire fits right in. He played 5 minutes for 6 points.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Just take what you can get and get good % in stats, Jeremy! You can’t win a game by yourself when the tank engine is running.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    76ers almost won the game in the last minutes until the tank engine started.
    That’s why Michael Carter William get traded. He wants to win.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The like of Morey is so disgusting in the basketball world.
    What does the 76ers get in return for 2 dismal seasons.
    Not much!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    again? wow, don’t think NY will be playing tonight. Last time he did this BS made him sit out

  • 1mtoldman

    6ers had actually won 4 of 10 b4 da trade deadline tank master hinkie had to act quickly. also a genius move getting the lakers phnx pick with 2 games against lakers yet 2 go.

  • guest

    Anyone have any info on when tanking helped a team secure a playoff berth? much less championship? Is there evidence it works?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Enes Kanter filles the need of the Thunder nicely. Steven Adams will never get back his starting spot. 20 points (8-12) in 26 minutes. This young big center has found his home.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    According to Byron, they are not tanking but actually trying to win. That’s his goal. Well
    either Byron is lying or he’s the worst coach in NBA history. I go with the later.

  • John Lee

    Evidence is irrelevant these days, when many rely heavily on guesswork by the name of “eye test”.

  • joyce ward
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Of course it works that Lakers will have a top five draft pick next season (96% of chance).
    But the player Lakers is going to draft might be a fluke.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He’s not going to let go of Lakers. He wants to take the team to graveyard until he is crippled for life.
    Absolutely a liability for the team.

  • John Lee

    Attention wh*re, nothing to see here.

  • joyce ward

    Yep, i hope Mitch/Buss have the guts not to offer him another contract

  • John Lee

    It’s most likely BOTH.

  • guest

    I know that… I am asking is there a team that did this and it paid off to the point of moving to playoff ready? and if so what was the time frame.

  • John Lee

    Arguably, KHuang insisted that Spurs “tanked” to get Duncan. You know the rest. 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Look at the top teams we are having now. GS, Atlanta, Memphis, The Spurs (Have they tanked in the last 10 years)
    The answer is negative.
    No teams has tanked to championship in the last 10 years.

  • joyce ward
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That was long time ago. They played basketball differently with different rules.

  • 1mtoldman

    hmm nicks trailing today 62 to 38 at half.
    denver trailing tonite by 30 in the 4th
    positive signs for bs continuing the tank big time 2nite because… quick quiz what do these 3 teams have in common (besides losing)…???

  • Promo Sports World

    Always showing Jeremy for clicks never giving him props in the write up

  • Promo Sports World

    16+points tonight Jeremy lets get that nice contract in the off season

  • MoominFloren

    Boozer absent for practice = DNP
    Young late for game = DNP?

  • John Lee

    All three coaches by former Lakers guards, too easy. 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    sam hinkie’s fans in philly feel he is on the right track; certainly the most prolific at it. as someone else points out the incentives and rules to “not prioritize winning” are insufficiently old to allow much of a sample.

  • CJSHYY

    See… he is not go away…. smh!

  • MoominFloren

    Whatever
    Don’t bother to know once Lin is out of Tankers

  • 1mtoldman

    its a sample question. the actual quiz will be harder.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Players like Lance Stephenson is so overrated. Mo Williams is making things happened for the Hornets but still it’s not enough.
    Both Lin and Mo are underrated PGs.

  • John Lee

    Look at it from the positive side. If Kobe doesn’t retire, Jeremy will have the chance to humiliate him with the new team.

  • Sunny Sullenberger

    Guess what would be Jordan Clarkson‘s reaction to this based on his deleted tweets about Kobe?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Atlanta won today over Milwaukee. Five starters in double figures.

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! Amare got 12 min for only 9 min. He played well w Mav. Glad for him.

  • MoominFloren

    First working day after Chinese New year break, tons of work, training, presentations waiting for me………I need the anti-tank Lin to cheer me up :))

  • Acbc

    BS is just throwing up chicken bones and wherever they land in his magic circle is his starting line up. Can’t believe he can lie straight face to the media.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    With Dirk and Amare, Dallas spread the court pretty well. Two big men one can hit the 3s and Amare is a beast in the paint.

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, Dallas fans said the Rondo experiment is utter fail. With him on the floor everybosy’s stats go down

  • 1mtoldman

    i thought he was throwing darts blind folded at a spinning sectioned wheel.

  • 1mtoldman

    actually dallas has gone back to the 3 headed point guard they had before rondo; barea and harris getting about equal minutes.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    More playing time and shot opportunities for Lin 🙂

  • John Lee

    If Spurs aren’t interested, Jeremy can still thrive playing with Dirk, Tyson, Amare and Parsons. (Two being former Linsanity members)

  • 1mtoldman

    parsons another of the many players out 2day. around the league.

  • guest

    so how do they continue to sell this to fans?

  • HeroBallJLIN

    he squeezed 12 min into 9 min. Wow talk about time management. 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    he would be out for many games because of bone bruises.
    Dallas is so deep; you won’t feel a thing.

  • 1mtoldman

    idk but fans seem to be on board with it if you look at fan comment sites around the league. they support it. tho tv revenues are down for teams following this strategy. btw they dont call it tanking now they call it “not prioritizing winning”.

  • FrankW

    Tip off coming up!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yeah, now it seems Dallas starters has balance scoring; everybody has to contribute.
    With Amare playing for the bench (14 points 11 minutes), Dallas will be OK.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Somehow I doubt Busses have the gut to do so. Well, too bad. Just want JLin out of Lakers in FA. Any team except all ex teams.

  • joyce ward

    27 more games to go…..

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Glad you are on board on counting down:-)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Dallas vs Charlotte
    Starting guards
    Charlotte
    Mo Williams 2 assist 4 TOs 3 steals
    Henderson 3 assists 2 TOs 1 steal
    Dallas
    Ellis 4 assists 2 TOs
    Rondo 4 assists 4 TOs 1 steal.

    You know the criticism against Jeremy is just unfair. Everybody does it and is unnoticed. Eric Bledsoe made tons of TOs in many games too. The inconsistency happens for everyone when your opposition makes changes in covering. Only Lin is put under spotlight and a microscope.

  • Alaingrvis

    oh no only laker broadcast

  • 1mtoldman

    has anybody else noticed that not only does scott not know how to use the 3 pt shot on offensive he has no idea how to defend it? i dont see any other team that permits so many wide open 3 point shots against them.

  • sws94

    Is Clarkson picking up some of Lin’s moves?

  • golfhacker

    I think the Spurs also tanked to get David Robinson too.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea it happens all the time

  • Who plays defense in these starters?
    BOS is shooting unbelievable 73% (8-11)

    I guess BScott keeps perfecting the art of Tanking =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    No defense at all!
    Just run and gun

  • I was thinking the same thing.
    He must’ve learned from Lin, the good mentor.

  • 1mtoldman

    and boston is normally a bad shooting team

  • and he’s supposed to emphasize strong D

  • Alaingrvis

    maybe lin won’t play

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers switch back to the older starting lineup.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is a bad attitude!

  • Alaingrvis

    it is scott

  • they look unstoppable out there. They should tank BScott

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lip services as usual.
    Boozer is right. BS just preaches and doesn’t practice

  • TTNN

    Lin might get DNP tonight?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The one who should be traded. No team wants him; not even D-league.

  • Promo Sports World

    Well lets see

  • There’s a chance BScott might take that after giving Boozer DNP in the last game

  • 1mtoldman

    looks like lin and black are the odd men out in bs dart throwing bones tossing to determine who plays.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin gets punished for doing too well.

  • 1mtoldman

    tank commander got to stay tough; no charmin here

  • sws94

    It isn’t even that. He doesn’t play tonight maybe because Scott decided that he wouldn’t play one of his regulars tonight.

  • Alaingrvis

    buyout just went up

  • Alaingrvis

    percentage wise

  • sws94

    Wouldn’t be surprised.

  • Rzo Vlade

    this coach is pathetic

  • Promo Sports World

    Nba really needs to penalize tanking…hurts the fans money wise…hurts the product on the court and messes with players viability in the league wow

  • The 1st time Wes is noticeable on court but it’s a traveling TO

  • blubell
  • I agree … it’s really hurting NBA products in the long-term.
    Even Jack Nicholson wants to sell his Lakers season tickets.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    So JLin and Black are going to be DNP-CD in this tanking nation.

  • John Lee

    Wes is a bust, he belongs in the D-League.

  • blubell

    Price in foul trouble.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is the back up

  • Charlie Sun

    Gasp, JLin may play!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s not entirely up to Scott.
    God bless Jeremy!

  • 1mtoldman

    should just be waived

  • John Lee

    Definitely, Jack has high visibility so this is bad news for little Jimmy, Jeanie’s gonna crack the whip.

  • Alaingrvis

    ill give a few more minutes before i change the channel

  • HeroBallJLIN

    No Lin No Win. Simple as that.

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott is running out of excuses of not playing Lin, of dissing Lin.
    Why doesn’t he just admit it that he is a Lin-hater!

  • Yascar

    Jeremy’s cousin. The family speaks.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Lakers is tanking. Scare of anti-Tank JLin!!

  • Charlie Sun

    Yup Price is that shutdown defender I keep hearing about. That’s why I. Thomas has 8 points in just 5 minutes.

  • blubell
  • Rzo Vlade

    is this true

  • Dan Cohen

    unless 2 pgs get into foul trouble, lin will not play because bs wants to show to the world that ‘see, I’m not just dnping lin, I dnp boozer, johnson and everyone else..so I’m fair’.. when in fact he has another agenda in mind.

    notice I say 2 pgs in foul trouble. because that will be sure that lin will be playing otherwise bs can have the option of having black in only.

  • Dan Cohen

    ok I’m wrong.. whew

  • blubell

    Jeremy is in!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What we really want is DNC-GM decision for Scott.

  • CJSHYY

    They don’t want to win… tanking.

  • well, well, well .. BScott started Lin in Q2

  • blubell

    Nice spin move.

  • Charlie Sun

    That would have been a sweet score if Lin wasn’t tripped

  • Beautifully-timed Lin Spin!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The fans should scream for the head of Byron Scott!

  • John Lee

    People refuse to believe this, but Jeremy’s agent actually took care of the DNP.

  • Yascar

    It’s definitely his cousin.

  • blubell

    Thank you Ed.

  • Ed Davis just swatted a fly down 🙂

  • Ed got Lin’s back =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Nick Young gets pick pocketed.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Nice scoop shot.

  • Rene#17

    Lin with a layup. Come on let’s go Lin!!!

  • Dr. Lin just made sharp incision in the middle of the lane for an easy layup =)

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Translation: I don’t know minutes management.

  • And he’s serious about not knowing LOL

  • Rene#17

    That way no one can get into a rhythm. Tank master at work.

  • blubell

    I bet Dr. Lin has great bedside manner 😉

  • sws94

    Exactly, doesn’t matter who is hot. Just even out the minutes. Yikes.

  • Promo Sports World

    Craziness

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s trying to make it sound smart so it’s not obvious.

  • 1mtoldman

    dont call him “the commander” for nothing. no one has done less with more.

  • lol .. let’s ask IJ’s opinion about it

  • Rene#17

    JLin keeps on feeding Hill and can’t finish. Smh.

  • blubell

    Nice reverse!

  • blubell

    J to Ed!

  • blubell

    Jeremy is everywhere 🙂

  • Grace Nsns

    one lay-up then one steal!

  • Promo Sports World

    It’s crazy how he doesn’t start on this team

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I was ready to switch back to Oscars till Jeremy came in…

  • Rzo Vlade

    naruto

  • joyce ward
  • Rene#17

    JLin a total difference maker.

  • blubell

    Makes both FT!!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Jeremy just dominating. Best player on Lakers

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin time

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    Get me 16 points

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah sure good thing tank commander scott was wary of lin 18 pt game last time and held him for the entire 1st quarter or the tankers mite actually win a game.

  • blubell

    9 points in 6 minutes

  • blubell

    Mr. Efficiency!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    JLin going back to the free throw line potential 11 pts in like 6 min

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If this is not Linefficiency I don’t what this is….

  • Sunny Sullenberger

    the leading scorer

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    It’s all about getting stars for free agency

  • blubell
  • HeroBallJLIN

    Wow what a roller coaster of emotions. Went from Lin not playing (angry/sad) to Lin playing and just dominating (happy) lol

  • 1mtoldman

    lin leading lakers in scoring again.

  • I am The Jason

    Lin is taking over the game. All he need is the ball in his hand and a big to run the floor with him to produce magic

  • JW

    Notice Lin holding the ball on his side preparing for the FT again. Haven’t seen that for awhile. He was shooting right away after getting ball from ref.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    always played well if given the opportunity

  • blubell
  • Dr. Lin just made a living in BOS middle lane w/ 9pts in 6 min! LOL
    Leading scorer for LAL

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Yeah I think so too.

  • blubell

    Horry: Lin playing with consistency
    Worthy: Lin is the Key

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m glad Jeremy didn’t participate in ASG activities. The long rest did well for him. 🙂

  • joyce ward

    LOL

  • 1mtoldman

    lins already got his double digit scoring so im good.

  • Lin needs to keep his hot shooting.
    More FTs for the last 5 min in the 2nd quarter 🙂

  • blubell

    Yup. lol.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is going to be benched. He does too well and lakers is winning.

  • CJSHYY

    They really said that…?! Wow!

  • blubell

    OMG Linsanity!!!

  • Rene#17

    Throw it up JLin and it will go in. Just love it!!!

  • blubell

    where is the foul!

  • LOL … BScott can’t bench Lin now
    12 pts in 8 min!!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Skill

  • blubell
  • I am The Jason

    Since the refs did not give foul call for Lin, the basketball gods granted Lin that basket

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Would be nice to have Ed + Black with Jeremy in the floor.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Isaiah Thomas looks more and more like a turtle in Boston jersey and headband…

  • joyce ward
  • Rzo Vlade

    smh……lol

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Wow JLin is just on fire now. Imagine if he got 35 starter minutes. Imagine what he can do. BS you paying attention to Lin

  • blubell

    Shame Scott doesn’t care.

  • Alaingrvis

    a lot of fouls lately

  • yes, Lakers knew BOS is in FT penalty by 9 min in the 2nd quarter.
    And Lin s cashing-in!

  • blubell

    Favorited and Retweeted 🙂

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    AttackLIN! Like!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott has been keeping this from happening!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I personally think after he retires, he should set up a sports agency. He can evaluate his talents by playing with them.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Talking about team chemistry.
    You’re having it now.

  • Lin went for a quick 2-1 to get ball back w 7 seconds left

  • blubell

    That was fun…

  • Alaingrvis

    very fun

  • blubell
  • Great Lakers smiles all around to close 1st half … nice game by Dr. Lin to get 12p in 12 min!

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    last play set up perfect by lin shot just didn’t quite go for kelly.

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    i almost went to bed then saw the summons: lin in, glad i didn’t.

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    The Return of Linsanity: Tankbuster?

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Love that reverse drive

  • Alaingrvis

    what is the bench vs starters stats

  • Arsenium12 .

    Sorry for the duplicate post. Can’t delete it.

    https://twitter.com/linspiredinca/status/569704862998401025

  • joyce ward

    I bet the fans were on their feet in Staples Center when lin was going off.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    They are now going to ask for tacos. lol.

  • blubell

    Signature move.

  • Alaingrvis

    in a fast paced offense that 12 would be a 20. lead would be 12

  • joyce ward
  • 1mtoldman

    can we ask for tacos?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The best defense against Lin is not from the Celtics.

  • 1mtoldman

    4th quarter will tell whether (as someone suggests here) as the game against milw that bs really wants to win because of traditional rivalry with celts (as milw game bcuz rivalry with kidd)–or if he falls back into tank mode.

  • joyce ward
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    You want to bet!
    The snake will think of something.
    This only happened when it lost its head.

  • blubell

    and 1!

  • JoeTeam

    Wish ppl would stop saying DNPCD … just always looking over or shoulders. Let’s look ahead with Lin … offense!

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • BobbyH

    DNP 2nd half?

  • JoeTeam

    Ninja!

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott wants to sit out Lin but God wants to see Lin play for him tonight!

  • CJSHYY

    I think Lin will be back in 4Q. BS will do everything he can to loss in 3Q.

  • blubell

    Scott dares to go against God? lol.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Bazinga!

  • blubell

    Novak would have made it…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott is the snake and Ronnie Price is his head.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Trading baskets again!

  • blubell

    *yawn*

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    In come the stopper, Ed Davis

  • Maknusia

    good hear he is beasting! will be missing this week games

  • Jedi

    Snake has no head. Can’t think.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Ronnie is hurt and Clarkson picked up his 3rd!

  • Jedi

    LOL. You’re gonna make CJSHYY real mad.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t worry. BS will let Clarkson w 1st unit lose more points before Lin can come in…

  • Maknusia

    thats not going to go well with BSCott plan….lol

  • joyce ward
  • BobbyH

    He will use Hill as PG if necessary, even if Clarkson fouls out.

  • joyce ward
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is always the last one in from the bench; dissing to the best.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Is Smart playing against Jordon Clarkson?

  • blubell

    The 3Q meltdown. Tanking activated.

  • stam

    BS is leaving lin on the bench because he was hot.

  • Alaingrvis

    its basically same plan as the 1st haif

  • joyce ward

    yep, he will bring him back in the 4th q when game is compositely outta hand,

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott is so afraid Lin will win the game for him; so he will make sure Lakers in a hole first.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Wesley Johnson runs wild.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well, just watch how he plays now. 🙂 I see passion again after that long rest.

  • stam

    lin is happy with the team though

  • blubell

    Loving Jeremy’s reaction from the bench 🙂

  • blubell

    Jeremy is in!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Those cheers for Jeremy’s return…

  • joyce ward
  • blubell
  • joyce ward
  • blubell

    Come on, Jeremy. Give these nice people tacos.

  • stam

    nick young must be in the dog house, even lin is in

  • joyce ward

    Nick was 15 minutes late for the locker room show up. So that is probably why he is sitting.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Just get into the flow before trying anything first.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sit him as long as possible.
    He’s such a black hole in the offense.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Boston is very aggressive; fouling and fouling.

  • blubell

    Too bad we’re stuck with LAL feed…

  • blubell

    J to Ed again.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers bench on fire.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Who here is participating at Jeremy’s live chat?

  • HeroBallJLIN

    They need to feed Lin the ball. He is hot and should be facilitating the offense.

  • MoominFloren

    How is the anti-tank Lin doing in 2nd half?

  • Alaingrvis

    yea

  • blubell
  • Michael

    Yay finally able to post again. Missed you guys a lot. Yes even you Brent.

  • Promo Sports World

    Get me 16

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Four bench players are in double figure.
    Good tanking!

  • blubell

    Welcome back! Where did you go?

  • ManuGinobilin

    Unbelieveable.

  • orLinaryjoe

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Imo, Brad Stevens is NBA’s good looking coach as of the moment…

    and Jeremy didn’t like what I said so he embarrassed Brad Stevens’ team by throwing that ball in…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin leading scorer

  • IsabeliJane*17

  • Arsenium12 .

    Lin has 19 points in 21 minutes.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Unbelievable … Hahahaha!

  • blubell
  • HeroBallJLIN

    Wow JLin is officially back folks. JLin just can not do no wrong. I guess the odds are finally starting to go in Lin’s favor!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott doesn’t want Celtics to go to playoff on him.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Captain Jeremy..

  • JoeTeam

    he does have that swagger we cannot miss …

  • orLinaryjoe

    Will be. Wes still.leading?

  • Maknusia

    Great, glad to hear that!!!! Go Lin

  • Alaingrvis

    isaiah thomas showed immaturity on that toss out

  • Arsenium12 .
  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Four bench players in double figure. They should start!
    None of the starter is in double figure!

  • Maknusia

    Looks like Lin after ASG has different motto

  • blubell

    So it worked… muhahahaha. lol.

  • joyce ward
  • JoeTeam

    And his D

  • blubell

    Linsanity in full force!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin21!

  • Maknusia

    Clap clap

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    Wow!

  • Promo Sports World

    Keep it up jeremy haven’t seen mojo like this in long time

  • Maknusia

    Jeremy Lin is BACK!!!!!

  • Brin

    Refreshing to hear Scalabrine and Mike Gorman call it like it is about
    Lin. Called Linsanity in the 2nd quarter and Scal said Jeremy is very
    “underrated athletically” . Announcers who actually watch the game and give accurate analysis.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Bench is outscoring starters 72-28. Has it ever been this lopsided?

  • Alaingrvis

    beat season high

  • deesee5

    Gonna give some credit to BS on this one. Letting Lin play. He felt like winning today.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Come on 4 tacos!

  • Maknusia

    Oh man, I need to catch up with this game once I’m back

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Fans gets the tacos!

  • blubell

    only if they play defense.

  • webattorney

    The intense battle between lowly teams is exciting. LoL.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol out scoring doesn’t seem like the right word.lol

  • blubell

    definitely.

  • sport

    Well I guess as much as BS wants to tank he doesn’t want to lose to Celtics?

  • HeroBallJLIN

    I am glad Lin is also playing well in both halves. Go Lin!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    No kidding!

  • Rookie75094

    Linsanity! !!psalm234…I should win the prediction this game

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    better than watching lowly college teams out of loyalty lol.

  • FrankW

    21 points in 23 minutes.

  • Lin tied this season high 21pts with 2:17 left.
    Let’s go, JLin7!

  • John Lee

    Respect for the White Mamba!

  • sport

    Can’t believe I missed this, gotta wait until tomorrow to rewatch the game. Can’t believe 21 points is what JLin’s scored the most this season as a Laker in only 22 minutes! He he got his rightful 33-35 minutes per game he’d have 30+ point games!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin drives on Zeller for his 6th

  • Maknusia

    I’m just as excited, from reading all this comments, oh man missing it

  • blubell

    Good timeout by Jeremy

  • webattorney

    Lakers won this one.

  • blubell

    Yes but better with tacos.

  • LOL.. if there’s nail-in-the-coffin, let’s do it

  • Rookie75094

    Linsanity for the win

  • blubell

    come on Price…

  • sport

    Darn JLin missed two shots, wish he made them for 25 points.

  • JoeTeam

    just watching now to see if Lin scores 2 more.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clarkson is sent in to lose this game.

  • blubell

    Lets not get too greedy… Jeremy is having a great game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Just run out the clock and the game is won.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i get 1 mill but wished for 1mill and 2 dollars

  • blubell
  • sport

    Hey it’s not enough until JLin starts getting back to back 30+ point games like Linsanity XD

  • Alaingrvis

    price fooled out

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    Nothing will change… BS wants to tank….

  • Rookie75094

    RPG17 the antitank weapon

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hashtag for the win

  • Maknusia

    So was Lin playing SG or PG, maybe combo?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The unforgivable offensive foul from Johnson.

  • JoeTeam

    dang … no tacos now … miss one for the fans.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    I hope Lakers don’t tank this one. Be so horrible if Lakers lose this one.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    yea this is correct 20 points in under 30 minutes is big

  • sport

    Wow BS wants to lose really bad afterall!

  • These TO by Price and Wes are so costly.
    But I got a feeling Lin will give nice surprises here

  • sport

    Hope Celtics miss their shot darn!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Please no OT

  • Maknusia

    Why?

  • Job713

    OT = Lin for 30 points!

  • blubell
  • blubell

    I just want a win.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Lol I’m surprised Lin’s High in Lakers is only 21 pts

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t want OT. Hope win this game now.

  • webattorney

    Mostly SG.

  • blubell

    hehe

  • blubell
  • sport

    Please don’t let this go to OT but with BS’s coach who knows! We need Lin to make a clutch shot now after those misses!

  • FrankW

    Just get a W

  • blubell

    NO OT

  • sport

    crap Young’s going to tie Lin’s points!!

  • deesee5

    wow

  • Alaingrvis

    over time

  • sport

    crap OT!!!

  • blubell

    This hurts…

  • BScott got burned again by not fouling and allowing 3!

  • CJSHYY

    Why no foul again?

  • Job713

    Same strategy as McHale — Don’t foul when up by 3.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Avery Bradley… really?

  • HeroBallJLIN

    I was so hoping no OT but better than the lose.

  • The good thing is Lin can break season high of 21pts!
    Yeehaa!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    dumb!

  • blubell
  • webattorney

    What a shot!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • sport

    BS learning from the best Worst coach Mchale!

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Why Young didn’t make the FT.. smh!

  • Maknusia

    Really?oh man!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Hes a 90% FT shooter, guess the pressure got to him

  • blubell

    He better watch out… the fans…. lol

  • gotta look at the positives =)
    Double OT is welcome too

  • Alaingrvis

    they’ve loss a lot so you know repetition

  • 1mtoldman

    commander scott back on duty

  • blubell
  • sport

    Except Lin already has 4 fouls while Young Ellington, and Johnson only has 1 and they can surpass his points!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol idc win or loss it really don’t matter

  • orLinaryjoe

    Be calm, my beating heart!

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    I thought BScott should have learnt his lesson from previous scenario

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah i think scott actually wanted to win this one but you know you can’t just foster a losing culture and then win when you want.

  • Maknusia

    Hahaha for a tanking team can’t really complain there

  • blubell

    Of course. Jeremy scores!

  • Job713

    Closing in 30!

  • Lin is Mr. Magician around the rim!

  • sport

    Lin scored first basket in OT!!! WOOT!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin drives to Zeller and get him out!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Throw your ball in the air shot

  • blubell

    Jeremy making a difference 🙂

  • sport

    Lin forced teh TO YES!!! WOOT!! OT is ALL LIN! Got assists from BOOzer!!

  • BuzzerBeater

    lol what on earth! I left to grab a snack when it looked like a sure WIN and now I see theyre in OT WTH!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    2 points 2 assists in OT! Linsane

  • Job713

    Lin getting the superstar travel no call.

  • blubell

    23pts/5asts. woohoo!

  • man, my screen is frozen 🙁
    Go Lin!1

  • sport

    Lin assist to JOhnson! OT IS All Lin and Celtics didn’t score a DIME. Linsanity is BACK!

  • blubell

    Well deserved. lol.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy continues to embarrass the Celtics after I thought that Brad Stevens is the most good looking coach in the NBA today..

  • LINSANITY in LA!!!

  • blubell
  • stam

    FEELS DAMN GOOD DOESN’T IT!

  • deesee5

    About time he got a superstar call

  • sport

    OMG you’re missing out big time! OT is All LiN! Lin is first to score a 2 pointer on both teams, then forced TO on defense, then assist to Booz, assist to Johnson!! Awesome!!!

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    lin leading in points assists and fga!S

  • joyce ward
  • blubell
  • I can’t decide if I want Double-OT or not =)

  • blubell

    This is so beautiful 🙂

  • Job713

    Double OT for 30-10 stats!

  • blubell
  • sport

    Lin to Booz again!!! LOL can Lin get a Double Double in OT?!! 4 more assist to DD!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Get Davis or Black in there. Need a rim protector

  • Job713

    Too bad NBA TV using LA feed.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Davis!

  • ETC

    Why is it that when we have talented players, we try to make the team work to their strengths and make adjustments so that everyone can be a powerful force. I just don’t believe Lin had that opportunity. LA seems to be optimizing everyone’s playing ability except for Lin.

  • sport

    Davis!

  • Job713

    Wooo ! Big shot!

  • Rzo Vlade

    fireeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    You can not stop Lin, you can only try to contain him!! Go Lin

  • Job713

    He’s been working on that mini step back shot in all those practice videos.

  • sport

    Linsanity!!!

  • 1mtoldman

    u realize that lin only played 2 quarters. only half a game. did not play a tick first or 3rd quarters. (oh i guess he got what the last minute of the third?

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Freakin’ give the big shots to the Cobra…. Jeremy the Cobra…

  • blubell
  • Rzo Vlade

    clutchhhhhh!!!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Zeller got his 6th! Not quite, close!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Somebody make a photo of Jeremy with a thought bubble of that

  • sport

    Lin please make 5 more points for 30 point game or 4 more assists XD for DD!!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Lin finally gets 30 Min and see what he can do, BS.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    lol.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Love to be a spoiler!

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Love the OT to give Lin the stats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michael

    Boston rarely compliments the other teams player.

  • joyce ward
  • Job713

    Lin with the great chemistry with players of opposing team.

  • CJSHYY

    OT it’s all about Lin… Ya! Finally got the win today!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    30 mins 25 points 6 assists.
    Looking forward to the hollering from PFV

    LINSANITY!!!!!!!

  • ETC

    Can’t wait for the highlights on this one.

  • cali7

    Chris McGee and HOrry saying Jeremy Lin was outstanding. Horry saying they talk badly about Lin but he stepped up today. Horry says Lin is not someone that makes other players better but just has to play his game…

  • deesee5

    Gonna give credit to BS on that one. He felt like winning so he left Lin in and let him play

  • blubell
  • HeroBallJLIN

    Hands down the best Lakers game all season!!

  • Jedi

    What is this feeling of happiness I have….I have missed it so much.

  • Job713

    Looking for the Lakers to go 25-0 until the end of the season with Linsanity….

  • BuzzerBeater

    Serena got jokes lol

  • Arsenium12 .
  • cali7

    Young and Hill crash lin’s interview. Now lin’s interview. Lin says he thanks God and it’s been a long year.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • blubell
  • John Lee

    Horry talking out of the other hole. Jeremy makes everyone around him better when he’s allowed to.

  • Promo Sports World

    Seriously

  • orLinaryjoe

    Horry needs to just shut the pie hole. Sorry.

  • blubell

    So happy for him.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The bench scored 84 points.
    What sort of bench is it! Awesome!!!!!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Haha, tools the words out a my mouth by a second

  • ETC

    BS just wanted to make sure he doesn’t get the worst record in Laker history.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    i think thats set

  • deesee5

    Thats the winning squad! BS keeps em in when he don’t feel like tanking. lol

  • blubell
  • Arsenium12 .
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Horry is pretty consistent about his views on Lin.

  • sport

    It’s ridiculous how Celtics still can make playoffs in the east. Some Eastern conf teams are so bad and do not deserve playoff spots! They should change the rule to teams with the best records in both East and West combined!

  • deesee5

    I think they still gonna get it. lol

  • blubell
  • leeda harun

    outstanding performances by Linsanity

  • Promo Sports World

    And There it is folks

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    See you later
    Serena sweetheart~!

  • We have an official Linsanity in LA tonight! WooHoo!

    Lol looks like they played overtime to cover the starters sulking game

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Chipdip

    YES!!!

  • Maknusia

    Whooio hoooo

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Thank the Lord he didn’t make it to ASG. A long break always does something nice for everyone.

    Happy days for the Lakers after snapping their seven-game losing streak. pic.twitter.com/9ndrnZ23OR— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) February 23, 2015

  • blubell
  • sport

    BS just didn’t want to lose against Celtics, it’s the Lakers vs Celtics rivalry.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • webattorney

    Never smiled like this with Kobe on Lakers.

  • blubell
  • LINCREDIBLE!!!

  • joyce ward
  • blubell
  • Job713

    Losing the lead in regulation and winning with a statement in OT makes it more enjoyable.

  • Jedi

    Glad to hear this acknowledgement! I like Brad Stevens!

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Keith

    I saw Lin was talking to Clarkson when they were on the bench.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Allen Wayne

    JLin went from DNPCD in the first quarter to Linsanity. It’s lincredible.

  • Keith

    If Lakers are not going to tanking mode, Lin fans would see alot of these.

  • Job713

    Luv these comments of respect from the opposing coaches.

  • joyce ward
  • golfhacker

    DNPCD in 3rd qtr too!

  • blubell
  • JW

    maybe it means Celtic will be one to go for Lin this off season. but that would be crazy. Going from NY, to LA, to Celtic. yea. hiccup to Hou.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    The long break did wonders for Jeremy. I can see him playing with passion again. The fire… no the INFERNO, is back

  • JW

    how long has this guy being coaching. is only to reconsider after all this time?

  • Keith

    If Lakers won last game on Friday, Lin would be player of the game too.

  • Job713

    + rest from the BS conditioning program.

  • blubell
  • stam

    LOVE Your comment!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Brad Stevens is the most…….. humble coach in the league

  • joyce ward
  • CJSHYY

    I think he just played his game & showcase for the teams… no matter what BS or Lakers want to do ….

  • JoeTeam

    I got nervous on that 4Q last layup when he got knocked sideways – just don’t want to see him injured for this team in the slightest!

  • I am The Jason

    I am going to keep it simple…..Lin for the win

  • sport

    Lin said before the break that he wasn’t satisfied with his body and felt he needed to work to get back to the form he wanted. I’m sure he worked hard during ASG break!

  • Keith

    It's not Linsanity. It's just Jeremy Lin given a consistent opportunity to play.— Alexander Siu (@siushi) February 23, 2015

  • blubell

    Love the crowd reaction.

  • golfhacker

    “Thank you Jeremy”.

  • blubell
  • ETC

    Lin might be playing well but I can tell you I wont be surprise if the next games he gets pulled so they can tank so I just hope he can keep up his stats with the limited playing time.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    He worked hard in a relaxed sense because he played with his dad, bro and shooting coach.

  • joyce ward
  • JW

    When Lin didn’t play the whole 1st qtr, i thought he was gonna be DNP-CD. I think someone said Price was limping after a foul. so maybe that’s why BS even let Lin play the 2nd qtr.

  • blubell
  • cali7

    The fans had some great reactions.

  • Maknusia

    With BScott anything can happen, I’m happy with Lin playing his game

  • JW

    Damn, I was stuck w/ Stu and his snide remarks.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Nick and Jordan are always together being silly.
    They’re like Dumb and Dumber and i say that in a loving way lol

  • stam

    Yeah i’m afraid lin will be DNP – the ultimate way to kill his hot streak.

  • “LINSANITY” PostGame Thread is open!

    LMAO!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Me too…

  • JoeTeam

    Uh, no way.

  • LOL .. Love the Lin Head-Shake!

  • JoeTeam

    Kobe at home …grrrr

  • joyce ward
  • dolphin2k2

    Would have love to see 1 more 3 fall and victory with IT still in the game, but a win is a win…. Great game!

  • Michael

    Something fishy is going on…:P

  • JoeTeam

    fav scene – tongue stuck on ski lift pole.

  • JoeTeam

    And it wasn’t easy for Lin to pick his moments but he did produce each minute.

  • Joseph2

    Horry must be blind for a long time.

  • grover chang

    The best proposal I heard was all division winners make the playoffs then the next best 8 teams.

  • grover chang

    I miss Walt Frazier. So much better then Stu and Drexler.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin got to do Linsanity in the OT. THe floor was spread in a way like it was in NY. He got the screens he needed. He got the ball over and over up top. You have to wonder why the coaching staff allowed it. I’m happy regardless.

    It’s so damn obvious if he gets to play this way, he will always look like one of the league’s stars.

  • james brown

    just like NYK back then..all players happy coz JLIN made them play best!!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    I think they needed either Black or Davis in there for paint protection and for pick n roll. Crowder was getting to the basket to easy.

  • GoodDayLA

    There is something terribly bad about the Boston defense too that plays exactly to Lin’s strengths & allows Lin to attack them like crazy. Works for me.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Highlights

  • LAJane

    OMG!! Had unavoidable conflicting event, so just got home and couldn’t believe the box score!! My first thought, like GoodDayLA below was “why the coaching staff allowed it.” Looks like I’ve got a lot of posts to sift through to find out how it went down. I missed witnessing the Linsanity, but thrilled.

  • LAJane

    Haven’t seen happy arms around him like this in tooo long! So nice!

  • LAJane

    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • sport

    Wow 9+ minutes of highlights awesome!!

  • Filler-up

    I though Ln wouldbea DNPtis game since he was the 6th sub into the game.

  • Filler-up

    Talk is cheap. Scott was very complementary as an opposing coach. Play the man when you have him. He will make some mistakes and he will try to play too fast. But if you play him, you will be rewarded.

  • you need to watch the highlights at least 3X =)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Jay highlights

    Lin’s body language shown he is the leader and his smile in Trudel’s interview looked exactly like the one in that Knicks’ interview where Landry Field kissed his head! Those were real happy smile and it is so comforting to see on Lin again!

  • it was glorious to watch the 1st Linsanity game in Lakers.
    No matter what happens next .. Lakers fans know what Lin’s capable in a good non-tanking system! Once they get a little Linsanity, they would crave for more =)
