G68 PHI @LAL Game Thread

This would be the game we all would want Jeremy to prioritize his health by resting his back to prevent further injury.

If he does play, let’s hope and pray that he will be safe. Health is #1 at this point of the season preparing for the Free Agency.

Especially this is a “Must-Tank” game vs #3 worst NBA team, 76ers

Jeremy has nothing else to prove as he’s shown to many NBA GMs what he was capable when running Pick-and-Roll for 6-7 game stretch after the All-Star Break.

Go Jeremy!

Guess JLin's stats in Game 69 vs OKC
  • Brent Yen

    hehehe

  • TTNN

    2nd

  • Brent Yen

    I thought NYK is the #1 worst team? 76ers is FAR BETTER than NYK are….lol ok I know I exaggerated…

  • I think you’re right, I’m remembering last season hehe
    NYK got 14 wins
    MIN with 15 wins
    Then 76ers 17 wins, and LAL 17 wins (blame it to Jeremy leading 3-game winning streak LOL)

  • somehow I knew you sensed it was about to be released soon!

    Yes and you were not exaggerating. Lakers going for the #30 spot.

  • LakerNation article pondered if JLin’s last 10 starts might help determine if the team wants to re-sign.
    Most of us know Lin will probably have 99% of not resigning to play for Byron and behind Kobe’s shadow.

    With Coach Scott in evaluation mode, the final 10 games with Lin as the starting point guard might help determine whether the team wants to re-sign. It’ll be interesting to see if Lin ultimately becomes a part of the team’s long-term plans with the Lakers excited about Clarkson’s progress and talk of the storied franchise going after Rajon Rondo or Goran Dragic in free agency.

  • FrankW

    Sounds like you know something we don’t know. What’s up your sleeve?

  • JoeTeam

    JLin said he’d cherish the minutes, I hope he has great performances.

  • I hope he does too and stays healthy!

  • Brent Yen

    “the final 10 games with Lin as the starting point guard might help determine whether HE wants to re-sign.” Here, I have corrected it for LN

  • I take it to mean that in the last 10 games we’re going to find out if BScott will get fired AND Kobe will retire for good LOL
    Probably 0.01% chance, hehe

  • Brent Yen

    Those LAL ppl thinking their team is so badly wanted by players is just beyond ridiculous. To a D-leaguer or some players wanted a roster spot maybe…

  • BobbyH

    In the development of those 10 games, Lin will evaluate how BS let Lin play P&R, how BS calls time out, how BS make sensible rotation, not in the name of tanking. Forget about play, because BS only knows 1/4 Princeton with 2 long balls.

  • Brent Yen

    lol

  • CJSHYY

    I agree w you… But I also think Lin pretty much has the team he wants to go in mind…

  • I think Brent can sense when new game threads are to be released in 3-5 hours prior to game time and just waited to pounce :]

  • I’ve talked to some Lakers fans and they’re just super-optimistic about tanking and they’ll come back up quickly. They knew Kobe’s problem getting along with stars but I guess they are just resigned to that fact and hope for the best. I don’t have the heart to tell them it might take a few years especially after Kobe is completely gone.

    Oh well, at least we all are waiting until Kobe retires. Kupchak might even be interested to recruit Lin again in 2-3 years. hehe..

  • Brent Yen

    The process will be even slower if Scott is the man in charge

  • Brent Yen

    I just woke up, turned on my PC, and saw your post about the new threads popping up. Plain and simple…lol

  • I expect Byron will be gone as soon as Kobe retires, I think.
    There was a reason why Lakers waited 4 months to hire Byron before the season started and he probably knew his fate is tied to Kobe’s

  • 6th Sense :>

  • Eric Pincus has to explain about this Super-Bowl of losing to his wife :]

    https://twitter.com/EricPincus/status/579780182539534338

  • According to the schedule, it looks like Lin might be back as a starter in the PHI game with 10 games left (if Byron keeps his word)

    https://twitter.com/LakersReporter/status/579779325697785857

  • Acbc

    They are dreaming in colour if they think LIN would even consider playing for Scott and having Kobe messing the team chemistry. It’s unbelievable how delusional the people in LA are that they think that players are dying to play for the Lakers.

  • Acbc

    Insider information!??…lol

  • Brent Yen

    Good for tank….right?

  • Sophie Paris

    Good to enjoy Lin his last 10 games as a Lakers. Lol

  • Brent Yen

    Can not wait for FA to arrive

  • Sophie Paris

    Yes soon Brent soon 🙂

  • BobbyH

    Slower? It is more like one step forward, 2 steps back.

  • Sophie Paris

    They want that lottery top pick

  • 1mtoldman

    will determine who has the true tank spirit.

  • linspiredinla
  • Sophie Paris

    Aww baby jlin with the ball… too cute *_*

  • My 2nd wish after MDA becomes Lin’s coach is to have Steve Nash be the Assistant Coach #1!

  • TTNN

    I don’t know whether Byron want to change starting line up on their last game of the 5 road game trip. Somehow I had the feeling that Byron might not even get Lin to start towards the end of the season. It is not like he never eat up his words.

  • I think deep down the writer also didn’t believe it but they had to a job to do :]
    After all the reported disagreement between Lin/Byron, they must have known Lin won’t come back

  • yeah, they might end up like 76ers tanking for years to chase that dream

  • 1mtoldman

    it might not be the easy way; but its the hinkie (some say genius) way.

  • Sophie Paris

    At least the cavs not getting it this year lol

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • BobbyH

    That would be interesting.

  • TTNN
  • 1mtoldman

    it might not be the easy way but its the hinkie way.

    this game will determine who has the true tanker spirit.

  • leeda harun

    the orders still from BS…reminded me of the same thing last year in Houston

  • lleepar

    Pressey is the man next to Scott in the picture …

  • TTNN

    I think 76er is easier to get the lost, on the road, and back to back. And they have double incentive to lose.

  • FrankW

    Sad for Coach Scott for the lost of his mother.

  • 1mtoldman

    and their team has been structured to lose as a clear and not hidden agenda; any time a player shows potential of producing wins they dispatch him to acquire more picks.

    with lakers its more about (mis) management.

    and they just acquired that double incentive recently as a deliberate choice.

  • linspiredinla
  • joyce ward

    That is a terrible loss. I lost my mom about 3 months ago.

  • Chipdip

    I dont think Lin will sign with LA… but if he does… not sure if I would go through another year of frustration again… I might have to go back to watch the torturing hockey by the Toronto Maple Leafs.. oh NO!

  • blubell
  • FrankW

    Me too, a few years ago. It gets better but never could get over it. How would I like to go back in time a do a few thing differently.

  • John Lee

    I swear, this is scary as h***. I don’t like to mention it because it sounds mean, but the streak is insane. Remember what happened to McHale’s and Sampson’s family?

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    Not me. I did the best I did with the information I had at the time. So based on the information I had, I made logical choices. I am never the one for regrets, because I think we all are put on a destiny track, and our little stumblings are all apart of the equation.

  • TTNN

    same feeling here, don’t know what to say…………

  • MoominFloren

    ……..too many coincidence…..

  • joyce ward

    Ok, let’s take it down a notch. Lin knows exactly what is at risk for his health, so I am going to trust lin in this situation. because we fans don’t have the whole picture

  • FrankW

    I know, but didn’t want to say anything.

  • GoodDayLA

    Actually I am concerned Lin has recurring back issues. Just like Nash…I guess you can’t play forever anyways.

  • FrankW

    Just a coincidence, all the coaches were in their 50s.

  • linspiredinla
  • sport

    If he can incorporate other ways of scoring besides getting to the rim maybe he can avoid falling down on his back so much.

  • sport

    All these coaches were from the 80s, their parents are bound to be very old, just coincidence.

  • tin3ytina

    I feel bad for bad mouthing Scott earlier.. In all honestly, hope he is able to get through this. It must be so tough for him. Surprised that he’s coaching tonight..

  • Brent Yen

    So we know Percy is the second in command

  • MoominFloren

    Not maddog…..

  • sport

    Now that would be awesome!

  • CJSHYY

    He is BS guy so not surprised…

  • GoodDayLA

    Wonder if it’s from that contact, heavy weight lifting, or what…

    I have never hurt my back from playing basketball, but I have from lifting weights.

    I know Lin has flexibility issues from his training videos. That is why he used the deadlift equipment that you stand inside of to do deadlifts. This is used for people with subpar mobility but also precautionary to avoid exactly a back injury. But it shows you there was concern over Lin’s flexibility/mobility etc. his trainers would have him use that over the traditional deadlift method of lifting a barbell.

    I also have seen Lin do some olympic lift videos with Houston Rockets. his form is not very ideal, but he is decently strong. I would not be surprised he tweaked his back doing those lifts with his sketchy form at the high weight.

    It is tough to recover from that stuff.

    Even just squatting wrong can cause it, but if you do not squat really heavy weight, you cannot get better as an athlete.

    It’s like a catch 22

  • John Lee

    I think it’s safe to assume most people are surprised that he’s coaching tonight. IMHO a parent’s passing takes top priority and everything else can and should be dropped, especially in a tanking season.

  • sport

    But Lin said he was hit by a teammate when scoring and that’s what cause the injury.

  • GoodDayLA

    Oh interesting. Did not know that. I’m sure at the NBA level, it is very easy to get hurt. Those guys are huge and strong. Lin is either really strong, has high tolerance for pain, OR BOTH.

    Lin would slaughter the average guy who thinks he is some rec league star. That’s why he can drop 40 so easy at the SF Pro Am these days.

  • Brent Yen

    He is NOT coaching tonight….right?

  • blubell

    Not coaching in game against OKC.

  • GoodDayLA

    Pressey?

  • linspiredinla

    He is not.

  • linspiredinla

    Oops, guess BS is coaching tonight

  • TTNN
  • John Lee

    Unless the bride is also a Lin fan, this may actually backfire. Jeremy will end up stealing most, if not all, of the bride’s thunder. LOL

  • 1mtoldman

    quiz: name the 3 ex rocket pgs available to play in the game 2nite.

  • John Lee

    Looks like he is. He will be missing OKC (Tue) and MIN (Wed) games.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes…I think?

  • TTNN

    Lin, Cannon, ??

  • 1mtoldman

    cannan, yeah and : ish smith!

  • TTNN

    and he starts!

  • Sophie Paris

    Hahaha awesome hope my future husband do same. XD

  • John Lee

    You can certainly make it a requirement during his proposal. 😀

  • Grace Nsns

    I Smith.

  • 1mtoldman

    this shows you the lengths that tanking will take you to; ish smith has played for 8 different teams in 5 years; been traded and or reaquired literally moved from one team to another 13 times! (been with the raptors 4 times).

    and now hes the spg for the 6ers.

    hard to outtank these guys.

  • 1mtoldman

    see further notes below. true and correct.

  • Brent Yen

    Weird game again….

  • hopefully the bride is not Kristina Wong LOL

    http://www.angryasianman.com/images/angry/kristinawong_marry01.jpg

  • sport

    Lakers playing down to the level of Sixers.

  • Brent Yen

    Not very far down tho….lol

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    Jeremy barely gets to touch the ball. Even Jabari gets more touches.

  • Maknusia

    Back and knee injury are pretty much standard in professional basketball, its worrying at times, but its part and parcel of the game.

  • Maknusia

    May the blessed soul rest in peace

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Oh my God! No wonder Jeremy is crying.

  • BobbyH

    2 pts

  • blubell

    Nice move.

  • TTNN

    Convington also formal Rockets

  • TTNN

    yeah, surprise he could do that with his back

  • blubell

    That’s what Stu said 🙂

  • Sophie Paris

    ‘Yessss BUT only if you invite jlin at our wedding’ xD …

  • Maknusia

    nice!…yeah…one touch passes

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Could it be just a coincidence?
    When you coach Jeremy, take good care of your mother. Of course, you should always take care of your mom.

  • John Lee

    Correction: “Yessss BUT only if you get jlin to SHOW UP at our wedding”.

  • 1mtoldman

    mite be a touch optimistic about either team getting to 80.

  • sport

    2 TOs by Lin the first one was a really dumb one where he didn’t notice the clock (shot clock violation).

  • Sophie Paris

    That’s better ;D

  • Brent Yen

    76ers are pretty long….

  • Brent Yen

    Haha….but the weird thing is no one was yelling at all…feels like no one knows the clock

  • sport

    Yea that one was weird.

  • Maknusia

    But the while team need to buck up on TOV, way too may for a quarter!

  • blubell

    Good thing it is team TO 🙂

  • sport

    True, alot by first unit as well.

  • Maknusia

    hahaha!!!!

  • sport

    76ers outscoring Lakers lol.

  • Maknusia

    LAL cant get their offense going…

  • Brent Yen

    Haha LAL is really doing a good job…..

  • TTNN

    what happened, 10 points down?

  • sport

    Refs being whistle happy on Lakers, don’t know seems like players don’t want to move today.

  • 76ers are like the collection of unwanted players from HOU
    Canaan, T-Rob?

  • Brent Yen

    76ers played much harder

  • Maknusia

    Actually its both

  • 1mtoldman

    ish smith was with houston once upon a time too.

  • Maknusia

    true!

  • sport

    Lakers look like they’re the ones playing from back to back game, did Scott do too much pretank drills?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sixer bench outscored Laker bench 20:8

  • Brent Yen

    Maybe refs bet their money on 76ers..

  • yeah, Morey and Hinkie definitely got a lot of wink-wink deals going on

  • John Lee

    Morey-Hinkie connection. Sixers now dumping ground of Rox in the name of tanking.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin for 3!

  • sport

    Finally, Lin took a 3s!!

  • blubell

    Havent seen catch and shoot 3 in a while.

  • Jack

    3 push off foul calls in like one quarter

  • Maknusia

    LIN for 333333

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Is Byron using Jabrai Brown as PG?

  • 1mtoldman

    look quick while it last lin leading lakers in scoring.

  • sport

    Back to back 3s!!!

  • blubell

    back to back catch and shoot! 🙂

  • Maknusia

    Another 3!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sweeeet!

  • 1mtoldman

    most of that is covington who is 6ers best player other than noel; he just doesn’t start most of the time.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin as SG!

  • sport

    More 3s from Lin please!

  • Maknusia

    sweet…yeah…bring it on the 3sssss

  • blubell

    3/3 perfect from the field!

  • John Lee

    …on a bad back.

  • John Lee

    Jabari seems to be a good sport and much smarter than JC. Kid already got 3 asts off JLin.

  • Jack

    How many ft have the Lakers gotten from the refs? Lol

  • blubell
  • Sophie Paris

    Yes more always more ^^

  • Chipdip

    Lin it all the way! Go Lin Go!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Round robin rotation by Byron.

  • blubell

    Jeremy is out 🙁

  • sport

    Lin out already?!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Go Sixers trounce the Lakers all you want.

  • John Lee

    Jeremy was taking the tank apart. Bad Jeremy, bad!

  • John Lee

    I’ll root for Sixers’ 15-0 run.

  • Maknusia

    lol…yeah…pretty much none, except for the last one from Hill

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    All those practices are unnecessary. The team are not ready to play the Sixers.
    Scott’s preparation for this game is a joke.

  • sport

    Refs rigging it for the Sixers.

  • Alaingrvis

    15 more games. Then we are out. Like being in prison with a week to go. So close but so far away lol

  • blubell

    Hulk Smash!

  • tin3ytina

    He is, but im sure his mind won’t be in the game :/

  • Maknusia

    he needed the rest as well

  • 1mtoldman

    he got the most minutes of any non starter.

  • Sophie Paris

    It’s like the Lakers play at the same level as their opponents and finally lost it at the end by a few.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sixers doesn’t seem they want to take this game.
    Lakers neither.
    See who is the worst tanker!!!
    They scored less than 20 points for a quarter.

  • 1mtoldman

    8 to 1 in favor of 6ers.

  • TTNN

    Lin got no assists. 🙁

    All the low post in does not count as assists.

  • Alaingrvis

    Not trying hard idk. It’s crazy canaan was like the fourth string in Houston. Never played yet he is giving us issues

  • sport

    Lets hope Hill doess’t score anymore so Lin can continue to tie as leading scorer.

  • John Lee

    Nah, it’s BS who’s giving us issues.

  • 1mtoldman

    thats what it means to be a ….tank.(er).

  • sport

    I disagree, Sixers were playing way harder than Lakers, lead with 10 points earlier and still leading.

  • Maknusia

    lol….let all excel!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    No way! Jordan Hill is going to look for his new contract elsewhere. He needs his stats.

  • blubell
  • Solo

    Sixer’s coach remembering the nine 3-pointers that JLin dropped on them last time……their house record

  • sport

    Sixers killing Lakers with 3s lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    How are the sixes beating the lakers……….by passing

  • TTNN

    JC with nice footwork to go through screen in last play.

  • linspiredinla
  • blubell

    Paul is awesome 🙂

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What has Scott done the the Lakers? The team scored less than 20 in the first quarter.

  • sport

    Refs really rigging it for the Sixers, so many phantom foul calls on Lakers.

  • Brent Yen

    Yeah….I guess LAL did paid those refs…for tanking…lol

  • sport

    Too many running drills, Lakers look like they’re all sleep walking while Sixers are the ones on back to back!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordon Hill is 5-5
    The rest on the court now shot less than 30%
    Byron did a good on these players tanking.

  • 1mtoldman

    lin hill boozer have scored almost all the laker points; rest of the team 6 for 25.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jeremy has already made 2 stupid TOs in 11 minutes.

  • 1mtoldman

    the starters other than hill also have more fouls collectively than field goals made.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m surprised that Lakers is still in the game.
    Oh, I see. The starters of 76ers scored only 13 points so far while their bench scored 30+ points.

  • Maknusia

    nice…WEllington getting his groove

  • sport

    Clarkson playing really really bad ><"

  • sport

    Yea it’s a good thing they’re playing against another tanking team.

  • Maknusia

    with those drills, its seems LAL has all the game as their back to back!

  • nodomo

    Sixers announcers making some good comments about Lin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers are winning as far as tanking is concerned.

  • 1mtoldman

    2 of 7 is getting his groove?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Only Jordon Hill comes to play.
    Maybe he’s not going to be here on the Laker roster.

  • TTNN

    Hill should take that hook shot more than his long 2s. But he should start to take 3s.

  • sport

    I have yet to see Lakers take the lead in this game. Looks like BS want to tank this one as well. =/

  • linspiredinla

    What are they saying?

  • sport

    Except his hook shots are quite inconsistent as well. Last few games there were awful. But definitely should take 3s over 2s.

  • John Lee

    He won’t be around to run the drills for the next two games, needs to strengthen the tank in advance to prevent Lin from completely smashing it during his absence. Lakers have beaten GSW, ATL and HOU, anything could happen.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yeah Hill’s long 2s are just a step away. How difficult it is for him to shoot 3? Jordon Hill with his 3 point shots could make him a valuable big man in NBA.
    My advice for him is to practice 3 point shooting in the off season because Lakers might not pick up his option year.

  • Maknusia

    hahaha/…the last 2 back to back shot was really important for LAL to stay in the game…else the lead would have widen

  • Linja

    How come they did not count a dime for JLin? (Pass to J Hill who scored?) ??

  • sport

    He was 0-5 before that so yes he’s finally getting there lol.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Stolen, as usual.

  • 1mtoldman

    i would call it falling back to a statistical mean.

  • sport

    Except Lin’s minutes are limited anyway so doesn’t matter. And I thought Lin got off from some practice cause of his back? Lin was happy sitting on the bench, probably cause he feels better and got the 8 points 🙂

  • TTNN

    he was 50% this season on 3s.

  • Linja

    BS likes WE, in BS’s eyes, 2 of 7 is Groovy.

  • TTNN

    not like his long 2s are more consistent. And Hill could get fouls when he works close to rim.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Laker is only 6 points behind. The 76ers are worse than I thought.

  • 1mtoldman

    tho the only lakers performing at all are hill boozer lin; actually statistically the game is even except for the fact the lakers have only been given 1 free throw. philly 10. thats the difference in teh game.

    as someone suggested when tanking is the goal perhaps the “homer” effect of the refs works this way.

  • TTNN

    just realized there are so many ex-Rockets on 76ers, Like Rocket 2nd team there.

  • sport

    A big who can shoot 3s would be very valuable indeed.

  • sport

    I have the same feeling especially when I see Canann, The 76ers GM learned under Morey and is friends with him so.. Rockets has been dumping their unwanted players on them.

  • 1mtoldman

    6ers have been structure to lose. its the hinkie way. you can’t blame the players or the coach. the goal is to be bad to acquire draft picks. its a long term strategy that has yet to be off but…some people feel hinkie is a genius. and 6ers are the only team admittedly and openly embracing entirely the tanking to dp’s strategy.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah its been discussed below. and the hinkie morely connection mentioned in that context.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Trait of a tanking team is that their bench will outscore their starter or at least score as much. 76er’s bench outscored Lakers’ starters.

  • Sophie Paris

    And they don’t even do it on purpose xD

  • 1mtoldman

    everyone here is equally bad; 3rd and 4th stringers from other teams. anytime anyone threatens to play well they are traded….for more dp’s. noel is the only player they theoretically will keep.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Who would guess that the player 76er picked up on waiver scored 10 points leading the team. Next game they should start Thomas Robinson.

  • BobbyH

    Maybe I am wrong. But it looked like a B2B to the Lakers, with the hard practice.

  • sport

    Yea Hinkie sure learned from the “best” which is why 76ers will forever be the tanking team unless they fire him!

  • linspiredinla
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Scott’s practice is worse than a real NBA game.

  • John Lee

    Must be pretty cool to be paid to fail, as long as one has the thick skin to withstand the spit in the face.

  • TTNN

    LOL, in TWC, they talking about TOs and all examples were Lin, and right after that, they said “Jeremy Lin had a good game coming of the bench”, like it is not coordinated.

  • 1mtoldman

    fair and balanced.

  • sport

    Well if the owner doesn’t care about winning and is gullible enough to believe in his dumb GM then so be it.

  • Solo

    Thats what I thought too 🙁

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordon Hill is playing like there is no tomorrow for him in the Laker.

  • sport

    Lakers will be a better team without him, well not that it matters if Kobe and BS are there and Lin’s gone.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jabari Brown is leading the Lakers in assists.

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    He improved quite a bit on finishing at the rim, 5-6 is pretty good. He always works hard, and is pretty strong.

  • Maknusia

    lol…that look!

  • 1mtoldman

    go on line and you will find all kinds of enthusiastic praise for the genius of the hinkie way. like its nouveau something great. its referred to as “not prioritizing winning” instead of tanking.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordon Hill definitely could shoot 3s. If he put his mind into it, he could be a valuable NBA big man for years to come.

  • sport

    LOL Clarkson continues to chuck up misses. He will be the key tonight to BS tanking.

  • TTNN

    JC is taking every shot he could, that’s strange.

  • TTNN

    just said the same thing

  • 1mtoldman

    any time jordan hill makes all his shots in the first half its something different.

  • sport

    Threatened by his old teammate Jabari Brown who’s also a rookie but playing better than him.

  • Alaingrvis

    Have to say sixes play like a team. Lot like spurs. They seem like a much better team then the laker. Altought lakers have mo talent. Even tought those talents are off the bench

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers shot about 40% 76er less.

  • TTNN

    I like Jabari better than JC, JBrown always play within himself. He was better in college too. Just because he is 6’4 as SG consider a bit short.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    76 starters are shooting @35% for the Lakers to win this game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers took the lead while 76ers insist on using their starters (16 points so far) to tank.
    76er called time out.

    “Good job! way to go. Lose this game and dinner is on me!”

  • Starters made 10-1 run in Q3 for a 3pt lead, 51-48
    It’s too hot for the #Tank so Byron might bring 2nd unit in early to cool them down

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    2nd unit minus Lin will do.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    7/27 for 76er starters. They couldn’t play for the bench of any team in the league.

  • Grace Nsns

    Playing with Brown ruined Lin’s +/-, his RPM could drop next week.

  • yup, Lin scored 8 while the rest of 2nd unit only had 10

  • sport

    Want Lin to make another block shot today to keep his no.1 PG shot blocking lead per 48mins.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m sure Byron is not going to give Lin too many minutes.

  • John Lee

    Halfway through 3rd, and the Lakers had 3 FTA. Sixers had 12. Hope the Lakers win and the cheating refs lose big money on this game.

  • “Rest your back, Lin. That 8pts in 11 min is bad news for the tank”

  • sport

    Clarkson and Ellington already has 8 and 10 points even though they started off shooting bad cause they kept shooting. Lin needs to learn to do that.

  • Jack

    The 76ers dropping 3s all night

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    They are getting serious with the game; they send in their bench.

  • Brent Yen

    Lol….

  • sport

    Don’t care so long as Lin gets his stats and keeps making shots!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I really admire both coaches to make this game a close one. How come I’m not excited?

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • sport

    Lin is in yes!

  • Maknusia

    Lin is IN

  • Jack

    Lin showed them how to run a fast break

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is tied with Hill as the leading scorer for Lakers.

  • blubell

    Sweet pass!

  • Lin with a bullet pass for the FLUSH!

  • Maknusia

    Perfect Pass!!!!

  • sport

    Nice layup down the middle and assist to Johnson!!

  • blubell

    Classic no look bounce pass 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Oh God. The first assist for the game.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Definitely a crowd pleaser

  • Lin is gaining #Lakers fan respect from not playing 100% but pushing through

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    As long as Brown is not in, Jeremy will be OK.

  • Should be on ESPN tonight =)

  • JoeTeam

    ed davis ft, such a nail biter event.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Poor Canaan scored no point for the game. He was much better in Houston.

  • Maknusia

    sweet..nailing the FTs

  • Ed Davis won’t blow that assist too often

  • JoeTeam

    Lin having a great night.

  • sport

    Ouch, Lin be careful, take some 3s instead of just going to the rim.

  • Grace Nsns

    Hi nailed a 3, 🙁

  • Lin 13pts/1ast/2reb in 15 min

  • blubell

    More freebies 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    not in his dna

  • he’s feeling it!
    maybe we;ll see 5 3s hehe

  • Maknusia

    1/2…will take those frees 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Am I mistaken? Lin has scored 15 points already?

  • Maknusia

    another FT!!! 2/2

  • blubell

    Jeremy is Everywhere!

  • “Jeremy Lin Making it Happen!”

  • Maknusia

    yes!

  • Grace Nsns

    This lineup is bad, he has to sacrifice his body.

  • TTNN

    Lin works way better with JBrown

  • Promo Sports World

    Let the crowd remember jeremy

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin has picked up 3 fouls. One more foul Byron will take him out.

  • Maknusia

    Lin the game changer!

  • Promo Sports World

    They will regret it in the offseason

  • That was beautiful poetry in motion #LinDish #Brown3

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

  • 1mtoldman

  • blubell

    ED is a beast!

  • That was a mean DUNK by Davis!

  • TTNN

    Ed!!!

  • sport

    Way to go Eddie, full court pressure on Lin and he just went down the court for a slam!!

  • sport

    It’s the LED show now!! Ed with the block, Lin with the lay up, Lin with the dish from full court double team, Ed runs down the court for the slam. Then Boozer topped it off with the nice turn around shot for Lin’s assist.

  • Maknusia

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yeah go for the dimes. 3 assists.

  • Promo Sports World

  • blubell
  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy in Philly with the young kids stranger things have happened

  • Maknusia

    dont wanna give him any ideas now!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hinkie is just like Morey.
    They claim T Robinson from waiver and saved the team millions.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    All it takes is a foul.

  • blubell

    Tanking utmost.

  • blubell
  • David Kim

    Nobody can’t stop Lin. LOL

  • Maknusia

    Go LIN!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin picked up his 4th foul.
    That’s what Byron is looking for!

  • sport

    5 more points Lin, lets go for that 30/30+ point game!!

  • Hans

    BS is gonna loose his job if he doesn’t bench Jeremy soon….

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I can answer that: EFFICIENCY OVER QUANTITY

  • sport

    I want Lin to score more than 30 points to score more than Kobe in a game this season!!

  • Maknusia

    Hope he is allowed to do so!!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    LOL
    Byron is going to lose his job whatever way you look at it.

  • Is this already season-high for Lin? 25 or 27 pts?

  • orLinaryjoe

    I want Tacos! And I hate Taco Bell!

  • sport

    youtube video makers, hope you get it quick with those highlights tonight!

  • Maknusia

    5 more min…need to keep the lead

  • Hans

    Not if he was hired to Tank…..does it better than anyone

    Darn free throws for Kelly and not Lin =p

  • TTNN

    Jeremy can’t miss Lin

  • Yascar

    25. Hope he gets more but it’s been a superb game for him!

  • blubell

    Jeremy “can’t miss” Lin – Stu 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Are you kidding?
    Giving up 20:4 in 4Q
    It’s a crime for the 76er.

  • sport

    only 29 not 30 yet opps too excited!

  • JoeTeam

    only if he’s pulled … he’ll def get a foul. Dunno …

  • Filler-up

    Better still, opposing PG is 1 for 11.

  • sport

    Can JLin get 40?

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    2nd team play the whole 4th?

  • blubell

    Lets get to 30 first 🙂

  • Maknusia

    nice block by ED

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    First free Linsanity and a game later Linsanity for a night. Something DEFINITELY came down from the F/O.

  • Sophie Paris

    Give the ball to Lin !

  • Filler-up

    Philly in the penalty with 5 min left! Wow!

  • Maknusia

    LAL…need to watch out those 3s

  • Alaingrvis

    1 more point Lin out there freestyling

  • Promo Sports World

    31 right there

  • sport

    Just need Lin to make a dagger 3 to complete the night for a 32 point game.

  • Maknusia

  • blubell
  • sport

    Did he get the foul call? FTs coming for 31 pts?

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

  • rookie75094

    wooohooo… I got Linsanity again!!!!!!!!

  • John Lee

    I’ve never been so happy to lose (poll result)!

  • There will be a lot of GMs interested in #LinDavis package soon

  • blubell

    What? you didn’t vote LInsanity? You call yourself a fan? lol

  • JoeTeam

    nice, let’s hope he keeps going. Seems he’s shut it down.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m not a GM and I’m interested in that.

  • David Kim

    plus Mike Dantoni

  • I propose @JohnLee:disqus to change to @JohnLeeLinsanity for 1 week LOL

  • Maknusia

    that would be nie…hope so hope so

  • Filler-up

    Lin drew 5 fouls in the 4th

  • John Lee

    It’s psalm’s fault (arms crossed, pointing at psalm), no other choice other than Linsanity should’ve been allowed! LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    1 more point

  • sws94

    How many minutes has Lin played straight? He’s exhausted.

  • yes, pleeazeee

  • Sophie Paris

    The hardest to get

  • John Lee

    That’d be like Malone/Stockton Jr., or young Amare/Nash combo.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    1 more point for Lin; FT or anything.

  • sport

    Come on Lin just 1 more shot to get 30 points!

  • Maknusia

    bench him then? 🙂

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    next year i will get 82 linsanities in a row… book it!!!!

  • David Kim

    What a pass by LIN

  • blubell

    Welcome to the Jeremy and ED show

  • rookie75094

    wow…what an assist!!!

  • Brin

    Forget the scoring, these dimes are ridiculous

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The dime is good 5 assists but I want 1 more point.

  • blubell

    I’ve never seen Jeremy clap so much… since Linsanity.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I like how Ed can totally read Jeremy’s no-look passes… very basic passes but very effective.

  • Another beautiful #LinDavisBullet to beat a double-team!

  • JoeTeam

    Jeremy is slicing up this D at will.

  • sport

    I do, for JLin’s 30 point game! Kobe’s the only one he got it this season!

  • Maknusia

    5REB, 5AST, 29PTS, 27min

  • blubell

    Meanwhile Boozer didn’t anticipate…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    You can do it Lin.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    They’re making each other’s job easier.

  • LAJane

    Two bodies, one mind 🙂

  • Solo

    No “death stare” from Kobe in the house?????

  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    Bullet heard around the world for all Lin fans!

  • JoeTeam

    cue the bench points starter comparison.

  • sport

    Ed also knows exactly what to do when JLin’s double teamed! Still loving that slam after they double teamed Lin from full court!

  • John Lee

    Vulcan mind meld? LOL

  • Maknusia

    PnR are bad…we dont like them!!!…lol

  • David Kim

    Lin + Davis = Nash + Stat

  • sport

    LOL complete fail by Canaan.

  • Alaingrvis

    1 more point lol well idc still happy

  • John Lee

    One more Free Taco basket please. Three not required but preferred.

  • Lin got 29 out of 56 bench points!

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    76er called timeout twice to save time for Lakers to bury them.

  • sws94

    Shaqtin a fool there by Canaan.

  • Rick Johnson

    I though players usually aren’t in on the tank.

  • sport

    Canaan’s shot should be on Shatinafoo! that was just…Wow.

  • JoeTeam

    yep, just drive and get 2 FTs.

  • Sophie Paris

    Was very funny

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sigh!

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    i am going to rewatch this game twice…one from la stream and one from 6ers stream…yay for league pass..hehe

  • Lin is full of SWAG now =)

  • sport

    1 more point, 1 more point, 1 more point!

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is laughing at brown because he did not milk the time?

  • Maknusia

    SwagLin

  • orLinaryjoe

    2 more point, 2 more point, lol

  • That was a scary fall by Brown

  • John Lee

    This will bring the question to the minds of casual Lakers fans: Where has the duo been all season?

    A: In BS jail, of course.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The way I know Lin is he will just dribble the ball away and kill time.

  • LAJane

    Enough is never enough 😀

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Unless Lin is fouled.

  • blubell

    Tacos 🙂

  • Maknusia

    Free Tacos!!!!

  • rookie75094

    yes he is classy like that

  • Maknusia

    1 more point, 1 more point, 1 more point!1 more point, 1 more point, 1 more point!1 more point, 1 more point, 1 more point!1 more point, 1 more point, 1 more point!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin will not shoot.

  • Maknusia

    never!!! greed! 🙂

  • John Lee

    Three Free Tacos nights, all brought to you by Linsanity, NONE by Kobe “Death Stare” Bryant.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jeremy will never shoot the ball even when he’s wide open.

  • John Lee

    Lin fans have been starved for too long!

  • Alaingrvis

    Lin got double wasn’t selfisht to get 30… Class

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    We will settle with 29pts then!!!! 🙂

  • sport

    Dumb Sixers, I wanted Lin to get a last chance for his 30 point game! <.<

  • Lin earned the respect from 76ers players

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If Jeremy was allowed to play like that the whole season… the free tacos sponsor will be questioning “why are we doing this?!?!”.

  • dolphin2k2

    Great game by Lin. His floater has turned really ugly though… more work there plz. Exciting game to watch.

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin’s 29 points 5 assists will at least take his PER rating close to 16.

  • blubell

  • joyce ward

    I guess Pressley didn’t follow Scott’s tank plan.LOL

  • JoeTeam

    bcuz you can’t just eat tacos, you gotta get drinks and fries, orings, pies, … Jeremy is money for TBell.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wesley looks jealous at that connection.

  • TTNN

    So, Scott left the whole bench team finish the game, what that means?

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That’s unsportmanship conduct that Lin will not even try.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    They should give Jeremy a commercial deal or something.

  • BobbyH

    BS was there in the game.

  • LAJane

    A worthy bromance!

  • JoeTeam

    loved that Stu called it finally – Lin stretched out the double team and made room for a great pass.

  • TTNN

    LOL, Ed on radio, and he said UNC beat out Havard, and they had a $100 bet, and Lin has not pay Ed yet. haha

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya, just thinking that. For some reason Scott left his best players in. Seemed like he wanted to win this game for some reason.

  • blubell
  • nodomo

    freakin beautiful

  • joyce ward
  • sport

    LOL, I was totally waiting for Ed to say this.

  • blubell
  • #Lintimacy LOL

  • Didn’t some CF losers say Isaiah Canaan is better than Jeremy Lin?

  • Filler-up

    Defense leads to offense, and easy points.

  • joyce ward
  • Sophie Paris

    Game was better than it looked like from the slow start. Thanks to Linsanity!! 😉

  • blubell

    We need a fire hydrant here… not to pee on but actually use it to put out a fire here! 😛

  • nodomo

    hahahaha

  • Keith

    I thought you called “losers” . Why care? hahahaha….

  • TTNN

    those two ex-Rockets PG are combined 4-26, ouch!

  • JoeTeam

    he’s got to go with a higher class food like … Ruth’s Chris or something.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    0_0 – that’s all I could say…

  • rookie75094

    yes they did…and they are having a melt down right now….hahaha

  • Filler-up

    1 for 11 and multiple fouls to get them into penalty early, all because of 17. Philly PGs were 3 for 25. Yikes.

  • They were doubling him and being extremely physical to stop him. Hadn’t see any team do that in a while.

  • This Lin guy kept breaking records LOL

    https://twitter.com/FlyByKnite/status/579854384005173248

  • Alaingrvis

    Never

  • sws94

    Lin still has it. He is close to a star player when he gets going. Tonight Lin shot the ball, and I think that’s when he is at his best. That while not being 100 percent and Byron playing him, what, 14 straight minutes?

  • BobbyH

    The shock wave of the death stare?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Haha, Lin is already gething Davis paid! Lin Davis rush hour!

  • David Kim

    Robin Lundberg tweeted that Lin and Davis are their best players.

  • some ladies got Linterested now LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Those dimes are worth more than $100

  • blubell
  • Yascar

    Jeremy makes a lot of people eat crow. He’s done it his whole life.:)

  • sws94

    Canaan isn’t as bad as he was tonight. But CF is full of losers, they aren’t worth anyone’s time at all.

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    kobe is in tears right now…. crying into his lakers jersey…hehe

  • blubell
  • Filler-up

    Take the handcuffs off and play Lin and Davis more often.

  • nodomo

    no haircut and got that asian fro that he had before. I like it!!

  • blubell

    He should use Charmin to wipe away those “tears”

  • LAJane

    Dancin’ around the bonfire here! Well…the kitchen table actually, but feeling the glow and using my imagination!

  • John Lee

    Proudly serving crows to NBA fans, coaches and GMs since 2012.

    Jeremy Lin, the official crow caterer of the NBA!

  • Dan Cohen

    I Canaan is what he is.. a canaan from the 3 point line.. but he can’t make plays. ppl just see scoring.. they don’t see the play making intangibles. that’s why cf losers are losers.

  • blubell

    That’s Linsanity Hairstyle 🙂

  • rookie75094

    Lin and Ed is a FA package now…haha

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Rare, medium, or well done… they can take their pick.

  • rookie75094

    Lin always rewards his teammates. You get a steal, most likely Lin will look for that player to score. make a block and Lin will find you for two on the other end. Thats why players play harder on the D.

    Well today he looked mostly to score and didn’t do too much passing only when double teamed. Been saying it all season, Lin needs to look to score and pass second to play well! When defense focuses on him and teammates like Ed, Boozer, Johnson are moving and making shots that’s when good things become easier. Not sure which Sixer it was who wanted to make it a one on one battle against Lin and Laker announcer was laughing, “But Lin has better Bullets” lol that was sweet!! That was when Lin was making back to back to back mid jumpers!

    I don’t understand Scott. Based on tweets I’ve seen on twitter and Scott’s interview, tonight was a must lose if there was ever a game to lose this season for tanking and yet he plays the group that has proven they can close out games and win. Some fans will not like Lin for winning this game and they will blame him perhaps and he could become a scapegoat.

    It was Ish Smith. Earlier in the game Stu quoted Lebron James statement that John Wall and Ish Smith were the two fastest players in the NBA. Then Smith was paired against Lin and Smith didn’t do anything. People forgot before the draft that Lin was clocked as fast as Wall. I remember when that fact was brought up before that hater Clyde Drexler just chuckled and repeatedly said he didn’t believe it. Well I didn’t see Smith the fastest guy in the NBA do much against Lin.

  • blubell
  • Dan Cohen

    See, I’ll probably get bashed for saying this but I’m stil going to express my freedom:
    Lin did play a great game. I was impress with his scoring efficiency in 29 minutes and had a better stat in terms of points that I expected (15 and 8). But at the same time, before the game even started, I’m thinking, if Lin plays a good game, it will not be impressive to me because this is the lowly philly. (say if he has 15 and 8, that’s nothing to be impress about because he is capable of playing like this against regular teams with 25 min of pt. and this is a lowly philly team). He is SUPPOSE to play well (if he got 15 and 8, in 15 minutes.. THAT is impressive). how the lakers trail them at 1 point, I think about 10 points, is even beyond my guess. I’ll definitely be very impress if this was against GSW…if it’s against GSW, it might not be 29, 5, 5. You dig what I’m saying.

  • Chipdip

  • John Lee

    I kept saying we have to drug @Michael:disqus before each game, but sure no one ever listens to me. LOL

  • Dan Cohen

    oh, of course ..and he has 38 vs the #1 spurs.. Those are surprisingly impressive for lin fans and should get excited about.

    But this is lowly phillys.. it’s expected that he plays well.. if he has like 15 and 8, it’s expected against the phillies, because he is capable of that against many team..so it’s obvious that with lowly phillies, he should have that performance. I mean 29 points is nothing to squeeze at esp with back spasm.. no matter which team.. heck 15 and 8 is very good with back spasm. But the main point is if this is GSW and/or a good team with a coach that knows how to change course or a great defensive team, lin with his current laker players, will not get 29, 5, 5. it might be a bit lower. If he gets 15 and 8 against those tough team with back spasm..that will be even more impressive than this. So this is nothing to be ‘wow’ about and stuff.

  • sport

    Didn’t even notice Lin’s shoes, has he been wearing those dragon shoes yet?

  • well even in previous games Lin got doubled once or twice when he got hot, but tonight they were really worried about him LOL

    Lin — — “We needed this win,” Lin said. “On the road you never know what can happen, it’s tough.” He got better as the game went along. He had 8 points in the first half, 9 points in the third quarter, getting to the line and being aggressive. He threw the knockout punch in the fourth when he went off for 12 and led the charge against the lowly Sixers. All of his assists came in the second half, including a sweet no-looker to Wes for a dunk and a fastball off the dribble to Davis from about 35 feet out for a layup. He didn’t have that Steve Nash stiffness to him tonight, but had the game. Extremely well-rounded attack, hitting threes, step-backs in the lane, drives, drawing FTs. He got the 29 points in 29 minutes. “He looked pretty good and obviously he must have felt good,” he said, giving him praise for his play on both ends of the floor.

    The Stats: He scored 29 points on 10-16 shooting (2-2 from three, 7-8 from the line) to go with 5 boards, 5 assists, 1 steal, 2 turnovers and 4 fouls in 29 minutes. He was a +10.

    The Action: He wasn’t aware of the shotclock after entering the game and it expired with the ball in his hands and the D giving him room to shoot, tanksational. He attacked from the wing and scored a layup. He had a lob deflected (should have gone for a two-for one). He was called for a push-off with his off arm on a drive. He sank a three in early offense. He dribbled into a crowd and was tied up on the floor. We won the jump and he swished a three. He missed an elbow pull-up jumper. He had 8 points on 3-4 shooting, no assists and 2 turnovers.

    Second Half: Quick attack down the middle of the lane for a layup. He no-looked a sweet bounce pass between defenders on the break to Wes for the slam. He attacked the paint and drew contact trying to turn the corner, he made both. He attacked the paint and ran over a player, looked like possibly a charge but he got FTs, he made one. He drew a touch foul on the perimeter for more FTs, he made both. He stripped a man, pushed it up and hit Brown for the three. He swished a step-back wing jumper in early offense (possibly going for a two-for-one). He missed a wing pull-up to end the third. He sank an elbow jumper. Davis blocked a shot and Lin took it the distance for a layup. He pushed out the Davis block and hit Davis for the layup. He missed a floater. He probed the lane and swished the step-back 10-footer. He attacked and was blocked out of bounds. He attacked and hit the step-back wing jumper. He curled off a screen and hit a fading 16-footer. Nice challenge on the other end to get a stop. He was trapped and drew FTs, he made both. Wide open wing jumper and he missed. He pushed up the break, awkwardly scooped a shot around a defender and bricked badly. With trapping defenders trying to track him down, brilliant bullet baseball feed off the dribble from about 35 feet out to Davis for the layup.

    Overall game summary by Dancingbarry.

    Give Ed Davis some credit defensively for dominating the paint and Lin credit for dominating on the offensive end on his way to 29 points, 5 assists and 5 boards. Behind those two, especially in that fourth quarter, the Lakers won 101-87.

    As badly as fans wanted this loss, you can’t blame the Laker players for playing hard. If you want the tank, have Vitti tell Lin to rest his back prior to this one. In the bigger picture, the Lakers still had a good week for the tank and are heading out on the road. No need to jump off the rooftops.

    “I’m sure there are going to be a lot of people saying what the h*** are doing? What’s wrong with you guys? But it is what it is,” Scott said. We’ll see exactly what it is come June.

    Let’s CELEBRATE a true Linsanity experience in LA! 😛

    What a tremendous performance by Jeremy Lin who still had the effect of back spasm but managed to have “Cant’ Miss” game with hot shooting and highlights-worthy of Lin-Davis connection

    29-points/5rebounds/5assists/1steal/2TOs with 10-16 shooting, a perfect 2-2 from 3pt-land in just 29min.

    He shared a game-high +10 with whoelse but Ed Davis himself

    I thought it’s a specific JLin record-breaking page but it’s the tweetable stats, hehe..

  • Sunny Sullenberger

    Sixers Coach Brett Brown wasn’t
    happy about the number of points his team surrendered to Lin and the Lakers.

    “That’s not who we are. On the defensive side, to give up 60 points in the second half is what bothers me the most,” he said. “We tried to double-team with 7 or 6 1/2 minutes left and he still found ways to score.

    “We tried multiple people on him. We tried to get length on him. We tried to get quickness on him and we tried to blitz him. We searched to find ways to defend him and we struggled all night.”
