G70 SAS @ CHA Game Thread

After a relaxing family time of watching movies with his cousins, JLin had a good shooting game (6-10) with 2-2 perfect 3pt shooting in the Nuggets game. It seems family time always helped Jeremy to relax and perform better on-court.

  • Jeremy spent time enjoying cooking for his family and friends. Will more family time help him to perform well against the mighty San Antonio Spurs?
  • Will Jeremy even get a chance to close if he performs well? It’s more likely that Clifford will continue to close with Lee and the rest of the starters since the Hornets have tried to close games consistently without him no matter how well his performance (i.e. JLin shot 61% in the Hawks/76ers/Nuggets without closing)
  • This trend has further increase the possibility that the Hornets have moved on from JLin as he might exercise his player option in the off-season and they have no plan to resign him. This might explain why JLin doesn’t close even if he performs well since they prepare to build team chemistry without his presence.

Let’s go, JLin! Let’s hope and pray JLin would continue to play well after some relaxing family time no matter if he finishes or not.

Guess JLin's stats in Game 70 vs SAS
  • GameWatcher

    First!

  • DX

    2nd, Lin will have a better game today since he usually had better performance when face the top teams like Carvs, Raptors, Warriors etc. Of course, if cliff would like to.

  • JJ Hui

    3rd!!!

  • CJSHYY
  • Lefon Jang

    That’s such a baloney excuse. He’s saying that just in case Troy Daniels is not working out.

  • blubell

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hornets fans have to be very stupid to believe this.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No question what did Lamb do to deserve this?

  • Arsenium12 .

    Here are some highlights from the game with the Spurs earlier this year.

    At the 2 min 15 sec mark in the video, Jeremy is shown pulling off his warm-up jersey to enter the game. One of the Spurs’ announcers comments on how Jeremy’s hair (the mohawk) bounces right back into place : “Those are almost like knives sticking up! [Laughter]”
    __________

  • rookie75094

    Let’s go Jlin! ! ! Spank the San Antonio senior citizens! !!!

  • DX
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kemba Walker has NEVER beaten the Spurs in his career. The last game the Hornets beat them was Jan 15, 2010. If they/Clifford want to win tonight game, there’s an “unjust” benched point guard who has done that multiple times, just give him the damn ball. But unfortunately, that’s not the Hornets’ priority.

  • Lefon Jang

    Notice he’s wearing a LA Kings cap and not LA Lakers!

  • heart

    And people are beginning to question Cliff’s decision on Lamb 3 DNPs maybe after the publishing of this article: http://swarmandsting.com/2016/03/20/charlotte-hornets-whats-up-with-jeremy-lamb/

  • jolno

    The Hornets’ top priority right now is to make Kemba look like a superstar since they will be hosting the All-Star game next season. Kemba’s game is more appealing to the general public (i.e. iso dribble crossover chuck with difficult shots much like Kobe). Anyways, I hope Lin did well statistically in his very limited minutes. I wonder who will be guarding Kemba. Will Pop actually send Green to guard Kemba and let Parker guard Lee? I assume Leonard will be matched up with Batum.

  • Sophie Paris

    Key will be if Jlin will play minutes or not.

  • KHuang

    Yeah, Lamb’s new to regularly outplaying Batum and so that’s why Charlotte is sitting Lamb to try to take his production down.

  • @JLin7 interview with hupu media(China) reporters.
    https://twitter.com/penny10654/status/711794372342259712

  • Weifang

    Just minutes won’t save this team, Lin needs full control on both ends of the floor to be compete with Spurs.

    There is another chance Hornets might win – Pop asks the starting 5 go home and use 10 men rotation with the rest of the team.

  • @IdoAmir
    Game vs DEN made me realize @JLin7 isn’t getting a fair chance with @hornets. He sparked a comeback, & got benched. No #honesty, no #loyalty
    https://twitter.com/IdoAmir/status/711940033775804416

  • DX

    Remember saw this video, but couldn’t find the link.

  • A great video of Pop sharing the Spurs organization philosophy on “characters” to many coaches

    [ 1:56]” The question is about character; we talk a lot about character and can you really change someone is that is selfish? Can you change that to make him or her part of the team?
    My bottom line is usually “They am what they am” (very bad English). So if this kid is selfish you’re not changing him; it’s going to come out in the wash; it’s gonna come out in an important part of the game. You gotta get rid of him. Bye-bye!
    The fiber of your team is the beginning of everything that you do. We want players who have gotten over themselves (It’s not about you) It’s about this person and this person; and what we do as a group…

  • KWC

    And I love the part where he talks about fair treatment to everybody.

  • BobbyH

    I guess based on this principle, lot’s of so called stars won’t make the team.

  • More good stuff that reminds us of some of the divas (with opposite characters) that Lin had played with

    How do we do that?
    [3:27] But it’s not the game that I want them (the scouts) to watch players play
    That’s easy. You could tell “he can shoot; he is a rebounder; he plays good D .. blah-blah-blah”
    How do they react to their teammates in timeouts?
    When they’re losing the game, do they go hide?
    When their winning the game, they beat their chests like they just discovered a cure for cancer
    They don’t realize it is just basketball!

    You can see that in a person;
    At practice you know how hard the compete, how they react to coaches
    – are they respectful to the game, to their teammates or to the coach?
    That tells you a whole lot more than if he’s just a good player
    So that starts to tell you about character

    When you amass enough characters on the team, you can probably handle someone who might be a little off the mark in one way shape or form

  • TTNN

    https://twitter.com/BringBackTheBuz/status/712003481192828929

    “10. Lin seems to almost have come in and do what we hoped Stephenson would do. He has been a good counterpart to Kemba. I know you said you don’t like to talk about the future of players too early but is Lin, someone, you think you would like to hold on to? (Bring Back the Buzz)

    I can’t really talk about free agency but you know we like Jeremy and I think he has done a good job for us.”

  • CJSHYY

    So no answer….

  • sws94

    He can’t answer but at least he said we like Jeremy and he has done a good job for us.

  • TTNN

    yeah, of course, what do you expect?

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! I think that’s PR talk. He knew he can’t keep Lin… LOL!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He doesn’t say he hated anyone either, even about Stephenson.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! That pretty much said it all…

  • TTNN

    uh, not really. They asked about AI too, and he didn’t say anything either. He can’t. That’s what i mean you don’t really expect him to say anything anyway.

  • heart

    Cho=Morey! Didn’t Morey also said they ‘like Jeremy’?

  • CJSHYY

    Well, that beat writer talked more… Anyway, I don’t believe Lin will stay & I think Hornets knew for a long time….

  • TTNN

    me either.

  • rookie75094

    Spineless gm…smh

  • CJSHYY

    GM always said one thing & do another ….

  • rookie75094

    Lies..lies

  • Linzen

    The game is blacked-out on LP… well it’s better for my blood pressure I guess. 🙂

  • Joe what do you know

    Not expecting a win for this one. Just hoping to see Lin make an impact and allow to run offense longer…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s why I hate NBA monopoly.

  • sws94

    He didn’t have to say he liked him or what type of job Lin did. I don’t have a jaded view of him since he hasn’t shown anything to me to make me have one toward him.

  • yes, me neither

  • CJSHYY

    Morey said the same about Lin…These are pretty standard PR answer.

  • JLin mentioned he tried to do ‘stuff’ on the sideline to be mentally ready when coming off-the-bench

    https://twitter.com/Loveforlife0323/status/712026888848302080

  • DX

    I am totally OK for loss if Lin get 30+. 🙂

  • Sophie Paris

    Yes just hoping for Lin to have a good game and having fun 😉

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Very good point.

  • Joe what do you know

    Minutes or points??

  • xeroid

    But it’s on NBA-TV, so if you have cable you should have it.

  • DX

    How about both?

  • I think we agree we need Double-OT tonight then 🙂

  • DX

    Yes!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    -Good chance to beat the Spurs if Lin has the ball and be THE POINT GUARD.

    -ZERO chance to have that happen.

  • Rick Johnson

    I imaging unless they play Lin at PG and run the offense through him it will be loss #11 tonight:

    https://twitter.com/rick_bonnell/status/712039488218898434

  • Joe what do you know

    Greedy, but h*** yeah!

  • sws94

    It may be standard PR but it doesn’t mean Cho should be compared to Morey. Houston is history in my opinion, and neither Clifford or Cho remind me of the people Lin was involved with in Houston.

  • sws94

    It’s an extra channel. I don’t have it and so I have to watch it on a free feed and they aren’t the most reliable. I wish LP didn’t black out games. Comcast got rid of YES so their customers can’t see Nets games televised in NY.

  • Rick Johnson

    Exactly

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    All 10 were led by your franchise PG.

  • some funny tweets about Dwight Howard & James Harden 🙂

    @HoopsHabit
    All right Twitter peeps. This Dwight Howard-Sitckum situation is an odd one, but what do you think is the appropriate punishment?

    @McKellipsTyler he must date a Kardashian for no less than 6 months.
    @DanyJoshuva Let him stay as James Harden’s teammate
    @DanielCoupe Shoot free-throws with Jordan an Drummond till one makes 3 in a row.
    @Dusty_Harrah @nflcommish would spend $20mil to screw up an investigation, suspend him 1/4 of season, fine HOU $1mil, 1st&4th rd picks.

  • Joe what do you know

    Bugger, big jam on the golf course. Looks like I’ll be missing the entire 1st half….

  • 热情的lychee

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Continue on for the rest of their franchise PG until he retires or moves on another team.

  • DX

    Thank you, this is one and still another one.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Believe it is a different interview.

  • gum

    I will have to follow the game tonight on play by play in Munich, Germany. Will have my fingers crossed for a nice game by JL and also a big win…Went to a fancy shopping street in down town and saw a Tag-Heur store. I dragged my German friends into this TW store…Voila, there were only 2 pictures on the wall…One of them was Jeremy Lin’s….My friends heard earful about Jeremy! 5 hours ahead of your Eastern time here!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Great! Enjoy your lovely time in German!

  • heart

    How nice? Missed Germany scenery. Beautiful sights!

  • adele

    Not happening

  • adele

    Fine with me😆

  • CJSHYY

    Lin maybe will get more min but for D purpose only.

  • heart

    Why are Hornets giving Lin media face time in this Spurs game? They know they need him? He’s the only one whom has been on teams that beat Spurs before?

  • adele

    Lol😋

  • hope for a double-OT then … swing away!

  • CJSHYY

    Do more D to help Kemba score….

  • adele

    Lies lies lies baby🎶

  • adele

    Same question as Lin?

  • adele

    Maybe.

  • heart

    Exactly! They’re on NBA TV, nationally televised. They want their guys to look good and take credit for the win if they win…

  • adele

    Sigh! I really don’t like ot because Lin will be very tired running around and chasing players. But if it’s the only way to get his stats, so be it!

  • adele

    Sad but true. That’s hornets reality game show.

  • adele

    They put Lin for marketing and if they lose, at least it’s not Kemba.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s for sure bc they are pushing hard for Kemba to get the most improved player.

  • DX

    Damn, League Pass also block this game. Only can watch online stream, bad quality.

  • heart

    KW was not on the league radar until Lin joined the team. Lin has been used for marketing and winning games but not getting credits for them. Tire of seeing him being used…

  • adele

    Hornets is number 6 in the standings. There are 4 teams tied in number 7. Pacers is playing against Philadelphia and bulls against Sacramento. If hornets will lose tonight, they will be pushed further. Well well well!

  • adele

    I know. But let’s hope for something greater for Lin next season. Keep the faith🙏

  • DX

    Air balls came from Batum and Lee.

  • adele

    True😥

  • adele

    For mvp talks

  • Alain Gervais

    spurs doing it easily

  • DX

    Yes, Parker 3-3.

  • Parker is 3-3, Spurs leading 11-4

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Spurs are doing what Dallas did to Hornets.

  • grover chang

    Like varsity playing junior varsity.

  • I hope Lin say to Clifford, “You know I can contain Parker, right?”

  • BobbyH

    They are selling Playoff tickets already? It is not even set,

  • CJSHYY

    Get the money first…LOL!

  • sws94

    Lin was one of the players interviewed in the shootaround.

  • smart, no buyer’s remorse 🙂

  • Batum 2nd straight TOs

  • DX

    Haha, someone will be pissed.

  • Epie

    Batum’s career high TO coming..

  • sws94

    SA knows what Batum is going to do before he does it. So far, Hornets looked overmatched.

  • rookie75094

    It’s a hornet TO party…hehe

  • DX

    He just want to get easy ast.

  • CJSHYY

    Parker is on fire…. What Kemba did?

  • rookie75094

    Tp is spanking kw…lol

  • DX

    Parker 4-4, 17-6 go!go!go!

  • Alain Gervais

    lol 19-6

  • sws94

    Told you guys Parker isn’t near retiring yet. He’s got that short jump shot down.

  • Alain Gervais

    Hornets lucky the have a week schedule late

  • Parker 4-5 shooting + Batum 3 TOs + Duncan 2 steals =
    Spurs leading 17-6

  • adele

    Kemba zero. Lol! Talk about mvp

  • DX

    Park 4-4, Kemba 0-4. Batum 3 TOs.

  • rookie75094

    Well the Senoir citizens are spanking the bugs…hehe

  • BobbyH

    This Spur team is old but with energy and tough defense.

  • Alain Gervais

    22-6

  • adele

    Tony Parker 10 points in 6 minutes. That means Kemba is a great defender😋

  • CJSHYY

    No timeout from Hornets yet? 22-6

  • KWC

    What a whipping/

  • golfhacker

    Fool’s gold.

  • heart

    Spurs did their homework. They are reading Hornets offense. Spurs are making Hornets turnover and lots of steals from Hornets…

  • LinMad

    This coach thought he had a good plan cause he won 7 times in a row against crap teams.

  • Spurs beautiful ball-movement .. Looked like 20+ passes in that possesion

  • adele

    Good defense?

  • rookie75094

    Clifford doesn’t want to lose face calling timeout…lol

  • LinMad

    We’re too basic.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hey Cliff, Lin in Pop calls time. You get it?

  • Lin in with 4:10 left in Q1
    Hope we see some PnR soon

  • Joe what do you know

    Holy crap… Slaughter fest on….

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOLOLOL Am now beginning to watch the game. Let’s see how many points Hornets is going to lose with this franchise hero:-)

  • adele

    Clifford will only listen to Kemba. Lin? Deaf ears.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I muted now un-mute.

  • CJSHYY

    Set up game plan against Lin….

  • LinMad

    Lin knows his stuff

  • rookie75094

    Time for a comeback….go Jlin! !!

  • Epie

    OMG.. what’s up with.. this ATM question

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He knows Lin well.

  • DX

    Lin helped a fan getting a gift. haha

  • LOL .. Fan guessed correctly who knows what ATM stands for? Automated-Teller-Machine
    “Gonna go with the Ivy-Leaguer”

  • too easy 😀

  • heart

    Lin’s hair in that ATM clip…!

  • is kemba guarding parker?

  • BobbyH

    He should fight for the title Defense MVP against Harden.

  • adele

    That’s Clifford formula number 1

  • adele

    Lol

  • Gimme question for fans LOL

  • whoops, Batum airball

  • rookie75094

    The problem is kw still guarding tp…smh

  • Alain Gervais

    Lamb in

  • KWC

    I wonder if they can break 10 for 1Q

  • adele

    Fun to watch them lose right?

  • zxcvb

    Kemba and Batum getting exposed.

    Only contender CHA has beaten is CLE…with Lin playing starting PG and Kemba OUT.

  • Manu picked Kemba’s pocket

  • LinMad

    desperation, Cliff brings in Lamb

  • out of the dog house

  • Alain Gervais

    iso verses the spurs lol

  • zxcvb

    LOL. Enjoy your future, Charlotte!

  • Hornets looked completely outmatched 7-26

  • LinMad

    if Lin ran the offense, we would have a better chance.

  • rookie75094

    It’s really simple…bench kw

  • your son’s voltaire

    only starter on the floor is kemba

  • KWC

    Seriously sad

  • grover chang

    I only feel comfortable with a chance not a win. Spurs a whole different class.

  • Clifford is panicking .. Trying BF1 with Lin and Lamb

  • Joe what do you know

    Funny thing. Got a call just minutes after posting the message. Security company saying my house alarm went off. So here I am just in time for Lin’s first sub-in.

  • zxcvb

    The only two great wins CHA is thanks to Lin: CLE and TOR.

  • zxcvb

    Like 5 airballs this game. Kemba, Batum, Big Al.

  • grover chang

    Is the crowd booing?

  • DX

    Like NBA team play with NCAA team.

  • zxcvb

    Streetball team.

  • So many airballs

  • rookie75094

    Alfense is the other problem

  • LinMad

    lol crowd is booing the team now

  • adele

    It’s ok.

  • grover chang

    Lamb 3333333

  • zxcvb

    Lin is like, “Told you so, Cliff.”

  • Alain Gervais

    yup

  • KWC

    7 points in a quarter, is that some kind of record?

  • LinMad

    Cliff did not prepare for this game. If he did, he would have allowed Lin to start as PG similar to Cavs game.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin played 4 minutes and has no stats. kemba dominating the ball

  • zxcvb

    LOL, Kemba. Welcome to reality, chump.

  • Alain Gervais

    lol they tried to play iso verses the spurs. lmaooo are you serious

  • heart

    Let Lin be PG for heaven’s sake! Doing the same thing but expect different result???

  • LinMad

    like someone else said, fool’s gold. Not just KW but the coach too.

  • adele

    Not happening in Clifford’s dictionary

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin touches the ball once in 4+ min.

  • When every Hornets shot is contested, we get 4-22 (14%) shooting!
    YIKES There must be 4-5 airballs

  • Joe what do you know

    This game makes me suicidal….

  • zxcvb

    I didn’t mind that because it allowed Kemba, Al and Nic to get totally exposed. Horrendous.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Didn’t see JLin has any ball touch since I began to watch:-(

  • DX

    Kemba 0-6 and he will keep shooting.

  • Alain Gervais

    makes me gleeful

  • Kemba is still the PG; that’s way BF1 is not there yet :[

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Me neither but the hole gets so deep now for Lin.

  • zxcvb

    Exactly. They’re built to be a 1st rd playoff exit.

  • adele

    I laughed so hard. 😅

  • Alain Gervais

    30-7

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Oops! I save myself by looking how Kemba loses the game himself.

  • heart

    KW hasn’t set up any good shots for anyone. Lin is just passing around and setting up AJ but he couldn’t make shots.

  • sws94

    Alfense is not going to work. Batum facilitating isn’t going to work. This is really a cold splash in the face of reality to the Hornets.

  • rookie75094

    Cliff is talking to himself…what to do…what to do…lol

  • adele

    It’s ok. I think they are prepared for the loss.

  • your son’s voltaire

    anyone wanna guess clifford’s post game interview excuses?

  • zxcvb

    This is game is over anyway. Better to let them get destroyed. Maybe this game can help salvage the stretch run, showing they need Lin against top teams (i.e. playoffs).

  • Pete Roces

    haha, what a game just like I expected! Brilliant Clifford vs Spurs, what a joke!

  • KWC

    Jeremy Lin did not do his job.

  • trying to design a play to get to double-digit now 🙂

  • Joe what do you know

    I think I’m gonna go dig out my wife’s Bride War Blu-ray Disc and put it in the player just in case…

  • rookie75094

    Haha…true

  • sws94

    One thing Cliff doesn’t do is that.

  • Alain Gervais

    3333333

  • your son’s voltaire

    clifford: “Jeremy played 4 whole minutes and had zero stats. that’s unacceptable!!”

  • Alain Gervais

    and 11111

  • LinMad

    they’re built to not be in the playoffs. We got lucky cause of KW scoring so hot. If he shot the way he did last season, we wouldn’t even be in the playoffs. Yet this coach continues to keep the KW iso offense plan.

  • zxcvb

    4pt play?

  • Rick Johnson

    Walkers sits JLin hits a 3 + 1

  • Mr Chuckles

    44444

  • Alain Gervais

    yup

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOL 28 v 7 in first qtr. Kemba is 0-5 FGAs 0 pt for playing 12 min while Parker 5-7 with 10 pts while playing 10:51. What a contrast!

  • LinMad

    3333333 and1

  • DX

    Yes, 3+1

  • Lin 33333333333333 And-1!!!!!!

  • LinMad

    We’re only down 19 thanks to Lin

  • Joe what do you know

    Lin 3!!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    damm Al

  • BobbyH

    3-1

  • zxcvb

    Al is a dummy. CATCH THE BALL.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin playing great

  • LinMad

    Replace Al with Zeler

  • zxcvb

    Lin defense! Lee can’t convert.

  • sws94

    Al wake up. COme on.

  • Joe what do you know

    Al helping Lin with his TO stats….

  • LinMad

    Lee should have passed it.

  • Great STEAL by Lin

  • heart

    Sensing the momentum pickup when Lin is PG? Lee should have pass that to Lamb!!!

  • Let’s go, Lin/Lamb/Lee!

  • Alain Gervais

    BF! is kinda back woo

  • Alain Gervais

    BF1 return

  • adele

    Lin pg getting alive and interesting. Sigh!

  • zxcvb

    Get Al outta there. Can’t catch passes, make shots or rebound.

  • zxcvb

    He’s playing against Lin.

  • LinMad

    Only thing I dislike about Lamb is he holds on the ball too long. He needs to let Lin be the PG.

  • Joe what do you know

    Lamb going solo mode a bit …. again

  • This shows a silly experiment by Clifford to break apart BF1 ..

  • Alain Gervais

    He is better then before. Still iso is in his DNA

  • grover chang

    Radio play by play guy sounded slow earlier. He is now earning his pay since bench took over. Very frenetic. Linsane pace.

  • zxcvb

    Can’t watch this trash, selfish team. Only Lin knows how to play teamball.

    Everyone else is a selfish streetballer. They can beat bad and mediocre teams, but never good/great teams.

    Only 2 great wins are CLE and @TOR, both with Lin leading the way.

  • heart

    Lamb has tunnel vision. Once he gets the ball, he hogs it. He didn’t see Lin was running along side him.

  • CJSHYY
  • yes, not quite a team-ball 100%

  • zxcvb

    Kemba the Kornerstone.

  • LinMad

    I feel bad for Nelly lol

  • Alain Gervais

    22222222

  • golfhacker

    22222!

  • zxcvb

    Amazing move by Lin.

  • Alain Gervais

    BF1 wooooo

  • zxcvb

    Lee does something good?

  • LinMad

    Strong 22222222

  • Pete Roces

    All teammates of Lin thought basketball is a one man sport. just do one against five is the right thing to do.

  • Lin quick driving layup … 2222!

  • zxcvb

    How long till Lin gets benched?

  • Alain Gervais

  • Joe what do you know

    BF1 scoring more in 4 min than what starters scored in a quarter…. Shame shame shame…

  • your son’s voltaire

    hornets making a comeback with kemba on the bench. coincidence? i think not!

  • zxcvb

    Whenver Lamb touches it, he never gives it up until he’s about to make a TO.

  • zxcvb

    Woo! Temporary Linsanity!

  • KWC

    Game becomes more respectable.

  • golfhacker

    If Cliff had any brains, he’d play the 2nd unit for entire quarter.

  • LinMad

    EZ

  • zxcvb

    Come on, Lamb.

  • Spurs can’t handle Lin’s speed!!!
    8 quick points!

  • Pete Roces

    He has one but left at home.

  • Alain Gervais

    wow what an assist

  • zxcvb

    Lin’s teammates haven’t made a SINGLE wide-open shot. 4 missed assists.

  • golfhacker

    Assist!!!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Even with incompetent teammates, Lin is cutting this lead big time.

  • Alain Gervais

    Linprime has been resurrected

  • LinMad

    You see how Lin called Cody for the pass and Lin passed it to Frank? That’s good PG

  • KWC

    For however briefly it is.

  • Pete Roces

    oh boy I miss ny days big time, those alleyops to tyson, assist to novak for 3, damn

  • Beautiful pass by Lin to Frank .. 2pts!!!

  • Mr Chuckles

    Why did the Hornets call a full timeout?

  • Joe what do you know

    Yeah!!!!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    HIS ALIVEEEEEE

  • zxcvb

    LOL, Cliff just walks by Lin without even a word/back pat.

    He’s P*SSED that Lin making Kemba look bad. This is against the Spurs starters now too.

  • adele

    as always bailing them out! Stephanie ready said “this is the kind of game you like to erase from your memory “really? You can just see Kembas demeanor, he slumped his shoulder. He is a poor loser. Lin is still fighting. His spirits are still for winning. This is the main reason why I just root and follow him.

  • sws94

    He’s FANTASTIC. He’s back!!!!

  • CJSHYY

    Pull Lin out & let his Kemba back to loss more….

  • your son’s voltaire

    clifford mad. gonna bring his starters back in to slow the hornets momentum lol

  • Alain Gervais

    lol if cliff is smart you don’t change this

  • “Why do you waste this UNCANNY court-vision by JLin, Cliff?”
    WHY

  • LinMad

    BF1 is back? Cliff needs to keep them together. I don’t like Al, he slows everything down.

  • Alain Gervais

    Without Lin this is a blow out

  • zxcvb

    Just goes to show that Lin’s shot is ELITE when he’s empowered.

  • I am The Jason

    BF1 to the rescue. Lin showing why he is kryptonite to the Spurs.

  • LinMad

    I bet you starters will try harder when they come back. It’s the Lin effect in action.

  • zxcvb

    It’s a blowout anyway. Kemba and Nic come back in and it’s over.

  • heart

    Once Lin turned the momentum in favor of Hornets and the scores up, like clockwork, you’ll see Cliff returns his favorites KW/NB to the floor.

  • LinMad

    or any contender

  • zxcvb

    Lamb, Frank and Al aren’t even making shots. Imagine if they actually made a wide-open shot.

  • CJSHYY

    10 min for Lin So it’s time to move him out… smh!

  • JLin 8pts/1a/2r in 11 min +3

  • LinMad

    yep that’s the same pattern we’ll see. He won’t keep Lin in. I think if Cliff really wants to win today, he will need to play Lin at least 35 minutes

  • zxcvb

    More like 7m. 4m of Kemba Watching.

  • adele

    my throat hurts because I was shouting. Lol, cheering for Lin.

  • blubell

    Nice!

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin auditioning for the Spurs

  • golfhacker

    Batum trying to steal Lin’s thunder.

  • rookie75094

    And booing clifford. ..lol

  • LinMad

    Lin being the floor general which allowed 3 fts for Batum

  • zxcvb

    That’s the bronze medal option. If he can’t play for MDA or Brooklyn, then the Spurs is a fine option. At least he’ll play teamball for 20mpg and compete for a ring. Also, Parker is getting up there.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin +4 Walker -21

  • adele

    Because he is mighty Clifford.

  • your son’s voltaire

    that’s the difference in their skills

  • your son’s voltaire

    eww kemba back in

  • kauaiblue

    Hows he doing??

  • zxcvb

    No call on that obvious foul.

  • Alain Gervais

    Tide going back to the spurs

  • zxcvb

    Kemba back in.

  • LinMad

    Ever since KW came in the gap got bigger.

  • Alain Gervais

    Yea. They just play more haif court slow ball

  • zxcvb

    He’s a junk streetballer but CHA and fans love him.

  • Rick Johnson

    Was within 11 then Walker came back and it’s up to 15.

  • heart

    You heard Lin yelled on that lost ball which means someone fouled him but no call! That’s usually is the case. He just doesn’t lose the ball like that!

  • Kemba has the worst -25 so far

  • golfhacker

    Cliff: “Ok Jeremy, time to go back to the corner.”

  • zxcvb

    He can never lead the team to beat top teams. He’s literally NEVER beaten Lebron or the Spurs.

    That’s laughable. Even by pure chance, you should have at leaast 1-2 wins over the past 5 years.

  • rookie75094

    Kw to the rescue. …….for the spurs …hehe

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin was +4 until Walker came in and reduced it down to 0

  • Lin +3 became +0 after Kemba checked in *sigh*

  • Rick Johnson

    +4 to 0

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    At least I see Lin is now very fast.

  • ok, I thought it was +3..
    +4 is even better

  • grover chang

    Parker could do what he wants now.

  • thanks…

  • heart

    KW slowed down the game and he has no defense. Parker comes alive when KW came back in the game.

  • zxcvb

    LOL, Kemba comes in and it’s a blowout again.

  • zxcvb

    Lin’s rhythm ruined with Kemba/Nic again.

    F**k this team and this coach.

  • KWC

    So layups are good now but jump shots still suspect?

  • LinMad

    No one is setting up screens at all

  • zxcvb

    He hit his last three 3s. Just needs the ball.

  • grover chang

    No. His jumper is good again.

  • blubell
  • Alain Gervais

    Kemba cant guard Parker

  • zxcvb

    Can’t guard anyone.

  • KWC

    Lets hope for another run in the beginning of the 4th.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin’s shots forced when playing in this lineup

  • Alain Gervais

    Kebabs defense have been an issue lately

  • LinMad

    Tony Parker is killing KW

  • zxcvb

    Game will be over by then, if it isn’t already.

    Hopefully, Lin can at least play PG and find rhythm.

  • wow Lee in for Kemba

  • zxcvb

    Anyone but Lin Offense

  • CJSHYY

    Bc Kemba has 2 fouls

  • KWC

    KW comes back and things go to he!!

  • golfhacker

    222222!

  • zxcvb

    This damn coach and team never learns.

    They’re passing and calling plays for everyone BUT LIN. 11pt deficit becomes 19.

  • I am The Jason

    BF1 should start the 3rd quarter.

  • zxcvb

    LIN is all you have CHA. Try it.

  • golfhacker

    22222 more!

  • KWC

    The KW effect is real

  • LinMad

    Spurs should sign Lin

  • Great drive by Lin! 22222
    Reverse layup

  • Alain Gervais

    When Kemba is in We start losing. When he leaves we go on a run

  • LinMad

    Lin wanted that!

  • Nice floater, JLin!!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Woo! Again, there is NOTHING WRONG with Lin’s jumper.

    He’s not Curry or Redick, but you let him play PG and his shot is EXCELLENT.

  • heart

    That sequence when NB/MW/Lee/Zeller were passing to each other while ignoring Lin standing the corner and then turned the ball over was ugly!

  • adele

    No I’m reserving my voice for Lin

  • grover chang

    I can’t tell. Does Lin hate the Spurs so he kills them or he likes then and so plays well in front of them.

  • Joe what do you know

    Our boy is back guys!

  • KWC

    Double digits in a half. Haven’t had that in a long time.

  • LinMad

    This is why Cliff needs to empower Lin more at PG. Smart teams will shut down KW easily and who else will carry the team? Only one is Lin.

  • your son’s voltaire

    kemba sits and the hornets make another run. coincidence? i think not!

  • zxcvb

    Cost them 8pts. Lin would have this game within 7-8.

  • BobbyH

    What a floater!!!

  • blubell
  • travis

    i think its the more the hornets are sucking the more they go to lin

  • sws94

    Linsanity-level game so far against the best defensive team in the NBA.

  • your son’s voltaire

    teams can shut down Lin but that’s when he’s even more deadly because he can pass

  • LinMad

    Imagine if Lin started at PG like the Cavs game. How close this game would have been?

  • zxcvb

    Even if they’re stupid enough to build around Kemba, they should at least use Lin as a 6th man. They literally can’t beat any contender ever without Lin leading.

  • adele

    They already know that but they still want Kemba. What does that tell you about this team?

  • Alain Gervais

    Im guessing Hornets will throw money at Lin. HE is basically their back up plan if Kemba fails like today

  • pandaboy99

    Hey lin fans. Got to love lin is having a game on NBATv! Hope popovich is making notes on a replacement for aging ginobili and parker

  • KWC

    Your 2M non-option backup PG/SG/SF is 1/3 of your offensive production.

  • Monk

    Reading all this, I experience extreme mood swings. Pls sign to a good team lin.

  • zxcvb

    He should have 3-4 assists too. 3 blown layups and a couple blown wide-open jumpers.

  • @JLin7 with 12pts/1ast/2rebs/1stl in 16 min
    #unstoppabledrives #courtvision #3ptand1

  • cdblue10

    Hahaha,Clifford and Kemba were just exposed in this game…lol

  • blubell
  • LinMad

    true, Lin has fallen from 6th man to like 9th after the Cavs game.

  • travis

    i agree they dont run enough plays for him

  • zxcvb

    Al, Marvin and Lee now ahead of him after that.

  • LinMad

    yep, that’s something KW doesn’t excel in. He’d rather shoot it.

  • CJSHYY
  • adele

    That’s why I don’t trust this team, this coach, this so called hero ball Kemba their franchise player their fake star.

  • heart

    KW can’t carry team when competing w/ top teams. Sorry, this is when it counts, not when Hornets are leading and all the hard work is done by everyone else.

  • rookie75094

    No!!! Jlin is nobody”s backup!!!

  • sws94

    Parker is fine and playing very well. If they are thinking of replacing anyone it is Ginobili if he retires as he’s considerably older than Parker.

  • Alain Gervais

    hahahahahahaha. Lin wasn’t in that building but the starters were

  • LOL .. so appropriate .. except Lin laser should push the big bad robot back

  • LinMad

    Lance is a Lin fan?

  • Lam

    Audition time

  • zxcvb

    He’s just a streetballer. Fine against bad teams and mediocre ones, but he’s literally never beaten a Lebron team or the Spurs. That speaks volumes.

    The best two wins of this season are CLE and @TOR. Kemba was out for CLE w/ Lin leading the way, and Kemba was secondary to Lin against TOR. Cold hard facts that CHA fans and front office will always ignore b/c race.

  • CJSHYY

    I think Hornets & Cliff know about it that’s why Lin got 16 min & already took 8 shots now.

  • sws94

    I can deal with the jumpers, but Al not catching easy passes is annoying.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Could have been down by 35 pts.

  • Alain Gervais

    who?

  • reminds me of passes from the good ol’ linsanity days.

  • adele

    Lin at least he show cased his play. I’m happy.

  • Joe what do you know

    The little karate kid in half time show…

  • Rick Johnson

    So will Cliff go with Lin when it’s 0-3 in the playoffs?

  • Alain Gervais

    Cliff better alter the starting Lineup because it will be over by the time Lin gets in.

  • zxcvb

    No way. They’ll go down in flames 0-4 with Kemba ball. And they’ll blame Lin if he makes any TOs or shoots poorly with no touches.

  • your son’s voltaire

    he’d do exactly what mchale did, use Lin to win and blame Lin when they lose

  • LinMad

    Lance wins

  • sws94

    He won’t. But I hope he brings Lin earlier if they come out flat like they did int he 1Q

  • CJSHYY

    Start? NO. Maybe just like today… more playing time only.

  • blubell
  • adele

    Yes

  • JJ Hui

    See this is how Cliff disrupted the flow! Everything smoothly going and he had to put in his trophy KW, then the game choked right away without delay, KW out again and Lin has the flow again.

    Yeah right KW got 3 points after half time!!!! KW 0 points after first quarter!!!
    The announcers said the bench brought them back.
    KW 3 points in 24 min, So much glory!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Alain Gervais

    I know he won’t. I know mchale has a short leash but he would alter the lineup if he saw something working. Cliff is like well ill try it again

  • blubell
  • KWC

    Lin having more PT than KW. Surreal.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What’s wrong with Kaminsky 3 pt attempts? Lin’s assists right there.

  • adele

    Loving it!

  • your son’s voltaire

    what’s worst is kemba allowing an old man to score on him at will

  • LinMad

    It trickles down from the top of the organization

  • NONONO

    wow 7 pts 1st q? Where are the Hornets all stars??? I bet Lin did not start the game, and 100% not starting PG

  • CJSHYY

    Young & JC?!

  • heart

    The karate kid won and I think they play the song from Linsanity era– “All I do is win..and all hands go up…” Fun…!

  • adele

    True. No way Lin is backing up somebody again. Not even to curry

  • KWC

    Why he likes 3pt so much? Doesn’t look like he is that good with it. WIth his height he should be dunking and shooting real close to the rim with 70%+.

  • your son’s voltaire

    this proves that Lin’s previous teams are garbage organization

  • CJSHYY

    Lin didn’t take one shot in 1stQ

  • NONONO

    too bad i missed 1qt bloodbath

  • DX

    Because KW has 2 Fouls already.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t worry LP will have video later.

  • Illbe

    Run the Floor and Get the Score!! Nice Play!

  • Lefon Jang

    I missed the first half !!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Should have been Lamb.

  • Joe what do you know

    Kam has always been a stretch big man. He’s just off today…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JLin is applying for Parker’s job

  • zxcvb

    Delusional Hornets fans think Lin “found his shot.” Give him the damn ball, you twits.

    Kemba has shot sub-40% for his career until Batum and Lin joined him, and not a peep about Kemba’s PROVEN godawful shooting. This year is an outlier for him. Aaron Brooks had a better year as 6MOY for the Rox way back.

  • Alain Gervais

    That first quarter followed by the second was the best time I’ve had this season

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    My condolences.

  • Illbe

    Jeremy has 1/3 of the Hornets points! Lol

  • JJ Hui

    This is good court vision that not every pg has, especially KW! Enough said.

  • Lefon Jang

    brutal !

  • LinMad

    KW will always get exposed by great teams. He needs Lee/Lin’s defense against crap/decent teams to score well. With great teams that require him to guard players like Tony Parker and getting defended good, he can’t do anything besides pass the ball or look like a fool.

  • zxcvb

    With Lin playing PG, he is 5/6. As backup SG watching Kemba and Nic, he’s 0-2.

  • Joe what do you know

    Totally different narrative in the two quarters but equally entertaining…. On the opposite end of the spectrum….

  • heart

    Lin is the only one made a 3 in this first half.

  • JJ Hui

    Yes, lots of them!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    and 1

  • Lefon Jang

    I thought you’re golfing

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not much we can do. I have predicted the game is the loss. As long as JLin is doing well, I don’t care that much except making fun of Cliff and Kemba.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    ya even Curry found it hard to score against Spurs

  • NONONO

    it is all Clifford’s fault – totally exhausting starters (especially Marvin, KW, Batum, Cody) for the season and benching Lin

  • zxcvb

    Wrong. He made a 4!

  • adele

    Yesss👍

  • oh wow .. 1-10

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    We all know whom Pop wanted to talk about and what to do in 2nd half.

  • JJ Hui

    Serve them right!

  • Alain Gervais

    Yup and i loved both sides equally lol.

  • your son’s voltaire

    good teams exposes bad coaches like mchale and clifford cus you need all 5 players on the floor playing defense to win. you can’t just shield your star players because you want them to focus only on offense

  • LinMad

    Lin, Lin, Lin. Double team Lin. Good thing Lin is a willing passer.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Pop has to decide if he is going to put 2 or 3 men on Lin

  • zxcvb

    Yep. “Let Kemba streetball all he wants. Just stop Lin teamball.”

  • heart

    I know I meant a 3 FG plus 1, of course, lol. Every point counts for our guy.

  • Joe what do you know

    Got a call minutes after posting that message. My security company saying my house alarm went off. So came back just in time for Lin’s sub-in in the 1st quarter. Thank you gecko…

  • Lin knows how to attack the Spurs with drives and crisp passing to break down D

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sorry but this Lin game is hard to come by here in Charlotte.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    You should listen to Hornets announcer. It will give your blood boiling:-(

  • adele

    Yes I know. Pop will get ready for Lin.

  • heart

    Yep, total team 3FG is 10 attempts, but Lin is the only made his shot.

  • NONONO

    Clifford toke Lin off most of 4 quarters since All-star, now we seen the problem in the pass 4 games

  • Lefon Jang

    Life comes at you fast…

  • Joe what do you know

    Lin’s on the bench… Time to go fix up something to eat…

  • LinMad

    Kemba trying to ISO still and gets blocked. He’s going to look like a fool if he continues to do that.

  • zxcvb

    I saw a post on Reddit: “5 different Spurs help on Curry on 1 play.” Well, duh. That’s what you have to do because 5 WARRIORS help Curry get open on every play.

  • NONONO

    So Hornets beat Spurs in 2nd quarter.

  • Lefon Jang

    kemba traveled

  • LinMad

    that was not a spin move, that was a collision lol

  • your son’s voltaire

    hornets offense is 1 on 5. their defense is 4 on 5

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Singapore BB Fan

    yeap…if you watch carefully, GSW has been putting up illegal (moving) screen for Curry in most of their games. Ref called that out in the last game against the Spurs.

  • Joe what do you know

    Ha… Kemba is a trainwreck so far today…

  • GameWatcher

    Feel like a mercy game

  • zxcvb

    Kemba Ball: 28-7 Spurs
    Lin Ball: 29-23 Hornets

    And that’s with Lin standing around for 3-4 minutes when Kemba came back in.

  • LinMad

    you mean 39-23? I don’t think we ever been that close. The lowest we went was 12 pts I think.

  • zxcvb

    I’m talking 1Q vs. 2Q.

  • LinMad

    Batum screwed up with that foul.

  • Lefon Jang

    Has Kemba peaked too soon???

  • sws94

    Maybe.

  • Lefon Jang

    If you’re talking about the foul on Duncan, I thought that was a good foul.

  • Joe what do you know

    He even grabbed Duncan’s jersey….

  • zxcvb

    And his TOs are the worst. Just awful passes that turn into buckets.

    When Lin makes a TO, it’s to a big man who can’t catch a pass or a non-call on a drive. Either way, it’s a deadball TO and it almost never leads to a transition bucket.

  • Starters made a good push so far in the 2nd half 14-9 to cut it to 50-60

  • JJ Hui

    Yes Lin 12, KW 3 points!

  • HVJoy

    Just got home for a late dinner. Hornets are only down by 10?! Lin had 12 pts in the 1st half! Wow.

  • NONONO

    It has been like that all season. we just thought Lin was pulled out due to too many PF,TO ,,,, it is nothing

  • zxcvb

    If Pop were coaching the Hornets, Kemba would just sit for the rest of the game. If you don’t have it and someone else does, your ego can survive a 1-game benching. Cliff on the other hand…

  • It might be fatigue … which is totally expected by most people except for Cliff

  • Joe what do you know

    You missed the god awful 1st quarter starring megastar Kemba Walker…

  • Bearness

    Is Lin auditioning for Spurs? =D

  • HVJoy

    What a shame! lol

  • Lefon Jang

    Kemba blocked again!

  • Sophie Paris

    Yep 🙂

  • your son’s voltaire

    he’d be behind Patty Mills lol

  • zxcvb

    If Kemba just sat down, they could actually come back.

  • HVJoy

    Duncan!

  • zxcvb

    LOL, Kemba. Nice defense. He stops defending when his shots don’t fall.

  • Lefon Jang

    Lin is waiting to check in

  • LinMad

    TP with the dagger through KW

  • Ouch .. Duncan just s*****-blocked Kemba’s layup

  • your son’s voltaire

    yup. i see this EVERY TIME

  • blubell
  • give starters credit. they’ve helped reduce the lead this quarter.

  • zxcvb

    Kemba lost his man again. Lucky not to get burned.

  • zxcvb

    Starters minus Kemba.

  • LinMad

    I give credit to Lee and Batum

  • Lefon Jang

    Kemba was clueless.

  • LinMad

    MW!!!

  • LinMad

    Spurs havent’ called time out?

  • JJ Hui

    KW didn’t hogged the ball and the game is flowing!! Coincidence?

  • zxcvb

    God, please sit Kemba. Lin is going to stand around and play backup SG.

  • Lee+Batum defense was tremendous in this run
    Plus Lee+Batum+Marvin offense

  • golfhacker

    Spurs don’t panic.

  • Lefon Jang

    2222222

  • Alain Gervais

    2222222

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lee/Lin backcourt works

  • Joe what do you know

    Starters finally clawing back with them freezing out Kemba….

  • sws94

    Lin/Lee yes.

  • Alain Gervais

    I have to say Batum is a very crafty player

  • wandertheglobe

    Kemba is out, Hornets look like a different tem

  • zxcvb

    Great contest by Lin on Manu, flying 20ft in a split-second to close out.

  • Lefon Jang

    sometimes

  • LinMad

    The Lin effect rubbing on Lee/Batum and the others

  • JJ Hui

    So CC had to admit KW is not useful in this game!

  • your son’s voltaire

    if clifford likes height advantage so much then play Lin/Lee/Batum backcourt

  • adele

    Yes😊

  • LinMad

    yes he is but sometimes it’s unnecessary to shoot on one leg lol

  • yes, made Manu missed to the left a bit ..
    He must’ve felt the jet coming LOL

  • zxcvb

    Yep. You can’t measure that in a boxscore. Energy level went from 0 to 100.

  • Alain Gervais

    i agree. Happy when it works pissed when is doesn’t. 50/50 deal

  • Alain Gervais

    yup

  • HVJoy

    another article on notable NBA hair? 🙂

  • Lee saw from Lin that Spurs is prone to give up drives & followed suit

  • zxcvb

    BTW, Lin 6-7 with Kemba out. 0-2 with Kemba in.

  • LinMad

    I think Zeller should be in for Al if they really want to push the pace.

  • your son’s voltaire

    proves Lin’s shooting struggles was due to playing with kemba

  • zxcvb

    I like him a lot as a 3rd option, 2nd ballhandler. Not as a 2nd option and 1st ballhandler.

  • zxcvb

    Yep. He just needs the ball cuz he’s a PG.

  • KWC

    That was beautiful

  • NONONO

    No reasan to bring KW back in 4q, he is weak on both ends

  • zxcvb

    CHA bigs are the worst. Can’t catch a pass, can’t make layups.

  • GameWatcher

    AJ, come on, stop missing the bunnies

  • Alain Gervais

    Al is weird. Sometime he makes everything other he make nothing. No matter how tough or easy

  • Joe what do you know

    Wow…. Spurs’ ball movement is just BEAUTIFUL….

  • Lefon Jang

    Lin is playing with so much confidence

  • kauaiblue

    Man, so close!

  • zxcvb

    Barely missing now. More shots, better rhythm.

  • Al at 0/6

  • GameWatcher

    cooling down… come on, trust your J.

  • Alain Gervais

    Keep shooting. Lin missed are always close.

  • LinMad

    Al doesn’t really help this unit. Bring in Zeller.

  • adele

    Lin only played 18 min. Kemba 24 min.

  • zxcvb

    He’s fine. Needs time to find his rhythm after halftime and bench-riding for the 3Q.

  • Lefon Jang

    They are not challenging Lin’s 10 footer, he should keep shooting it.

  • Good attempt by Lin, just slightly off-balanced
    Keep shooting!

  • golfhacker

    Lin stomped his foot when it didn’t go in – haha!

  • Alain Gervais

    First time Lins been close all year

  • zxcvb

    The one before that was in-and-out.

  • cshot

    lets go jeremy! keep shooting them mid range jumpers!

  • NONONO

    dare Clifford to bring KW back in 4th quarter

  • Lefon Jang

    quality over quantity

  • your son’s voltaire

    animal style!

  • sws94

    He had 2 shots that were in and out. He looks really good tonight. Confident and decisive.

  • Sophie Paris

    Please no KW ><

  • Great to see his confidence..
    Hope he keeps driving/shooting

  • Joe what do you know

    Probably got something to do with his pregame meal…. Fried chicken or not…

  • adele

    Clifford will let him. He doesn’t want Lin to have his glory. Kemba is their man.

  • zxcvb

    Animal-style Lin is not ideal, but better than DGAF Lin we’ve seen lately.

  • NONONO

    hope Lin take 5-10 more shots in 4 q

  • NONONO

    10 is better

  • sws94

    Al and Frank don’t play at Lin’s speed. Lin got Al easy looks he should have converted. Frank fumbled an interior Lin pass.

  • LinMad

    Mr 4th qtr coming up

  • zxcvb

    Big Al, come on.

  • zxcvb

    More likely Alfense.

  • Lefon Jang

    33333

  • Joe what do you know

    Wanna see lamb back…

  • Alain Gervais

    3333333

  • zxcvb

    God, I hate CHA bigs.

  • zxcvb

    “Broken jumper” LOL.

  • LinMad

    POWWWWWWWWWWW

  • KWC

    That’s right

  • Lin 3333 off Lee’s assist!!!!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    Lambs offense and defense sequence was ugly

  • your son’s voltaire

    gotta love Lee’s awareness to pass it right back

  • zxcvb

    Lamb ISOs on every touch. He’s ruining the game like Kemba.

  • “What a great SHOT by Lin under duress!”

  • LinMad

    Why must Lamb iso

  • NONONO

    LAMB pass!!!

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin/Lee is great!

  • Lefon Jang

    3333333333333

  • Lin and Lee w/the most number of shots taken, as it should be.

  • LinMad

    that’s a foul!

  • Alain Gervais

    33333333

  • zxcvb

    Duncan still amazing.

  • Lefon Jang

    wow this is intense!

  • zxcvb

    What “broken jumper” trlolololol

  • gandychan

    LET’S GO!!

  • zxcvb

    LIN >>>>>>>>>>> Kemba

  • LinMad

    33333333333333333333

  • cdblue10

    I’m missing a big game again…

  • LinMad

    LEGGOOOOOOOO

  • CaliUSMC

    O_O.. Lin on fiya

  • What GREAT SHOT by JLin!!
    Wide-open 333333!

  • I am The Jason

    Lin is carrying the team tonight. 20 pts. and counting

  • LinMad

    Lin better close the game, would be funny if KW closes and we lose.

  • blubell
  • KWC

    Yet another proof that he can perform well against top teams.

  • LINSANITY!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!

  • adele

    33333333333333333333

  • cshot

    oh h*** yea!!!!!!!!!!!

  • yes 🙂 …

  • gasparthe2nd

    Hurrah!!! My hero Jeremy Lin!!!! nuff said.

  • wandertheglobe

    Linsanity!!!!

  • LinMad

    Clifford probably not happy that Lin outshines KW. He will make up for it next game.

  • travis

    watching lamb has been cringworthy, i support cliffs decision to bench him for daniels

  • ViNuyork

    haha..coach .clifff … IN YOUR FACE…..you better leave him in there if you want to win this game 🙂

  • heart

    Lin the game changer!!!! That’s what I call a leader!!! Not shining away from pressure and execute in big moment!!

  • adele

    Shouting at the top of my lungs. My throat hurts.

  • HVJoy

    The tougher the opponent, the better Lin plays.

  • Smi-Lin Assassin!!!

  • cshot

    cavs, spurs… no match against lins greatness lol wooooooooo

  • blubell
  • LinMad

    Can Lin be 6th man again? Stupid coach demoted Lin after a great Cavs game.

  • Lam

    Lets see whether Clifford pulls Lin back for Kemba. NBA Politics or winning?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just got back. WOW! Is it real that the score is 74 v 75?????

  • Joe what do you know

    It’s fate. God is telling me I have to watch this game LIVE so he send a gecko to trip my alarm. Hallelujah!

  • Lefon Jang

    Lamb just low basketball iq

  • Alain Gervais

    lol Lamb ignored Lin asking for the ball

  • travis

    and once again jeremy lamb continues to kill his team

  • NONONO

    can we sue Clifford for our emotion damage for DEN game?

  • HVJoy

    Yes, it is!

  • blubell
  • LinMad

    Stupid Lamb trying to play point guard. Are you serious? Sit him down.

  • zxcvb

    DAMN IT LAMB.

    Lamb ruined a play for Lin by hogging it and waving Lin off. Turned into a breakaway layup.

  • Dan Ang

    Haven’t seen Lin smile like that for a minute!

  • Lamb wasted the possession,refusing to give the ball to Lin

  • Lefon Jang

    Lamb needs to pass!

  • heart

    Guys try to be hero and left out Lin, result Turn over!!!

  • blubell
  • zxcvb

    Lamb won’t pass. God, I hate this kid.

  • LinMad

    Now I know why Lamb was in the doghouse. He needs to be in the doghouse a little longer.

  • your son’s voltaire

    uconn player like kemba

  • zxcvb

    LIN EFFECT. Setting up the SCRUB LAMB.

  • NONONO

    LAMB is hurting both ends

  • cshot

    lamb better

  • sport

    Lin has always shined against Spurs every season. Too bad Pop doesn’t want to sign him.

  • LinMad

    And that’s why Lamb needs to stick to catch and shoot only.

  • zxcvb

    Lin the leader, getting Lamb a 3 despite his selfishness.

  • zxcvb

    Not really. It’s all Lin.

  • blubell
  • cshot

    not screw this up lol. didn’t type all the way

  • Pete Roces

    Poor Lin will be marginalized for sure next game….

  • zxcvb

    Big Al is awful.

  • LinMad

    Bring Zeller in

  • Alain Gervais

    Take Lamb out please

  • zxcvb

    F**k this team, they STILL won’t trust Lin.

  • Come on, Big Al!!
    You gotta make easy lay-in!!!

  • Lefon Jang

    2222222222222

  • NONONO

    i see Lin replace Parker or Ginobili next season

  • Briiick

    Cliff wasted a possession, refusing to instruct his players to let the Lin handle the ball.

  • sport

    No to Gino that means bench player, yes to Parker (starter).

  • LinMad

    Lin 2222222222

  • zxcvb

    Midrange coming back…

  • blubell
  • LINSANITY!!! 22pts!

  • HVJoy

    “22 for Jeremy Lin!”

  • zxcvb

    If Big Al could just make layups, they’ve be up 6-8.

  • LinMad

    WHAT? LIN TOOK THAT CHARGE AND THEY CALL IT A FOUL?

  • Lefon Jang

    Spurs are giving Lin too much space to shoot the mid

  • LinMad

    Oh it was Lamb that fouled

  • That’s a CHARGE!

  • Alain Gervais

    Called Lamb for the foul i think

  • heart

    I wouldn’t mind seeing this game go OT.

  • adele

    Lin smiling. Im happy😊

  • sws94

    Absurd call. And on his home court. The only way that is a block is if Lin is in the restricted area and I don’t think he was.

  • oh, we need Silence of the Lamb 🙁

  • NONONO

    paker bench next season, Ginobili retires

  • LinMad

    This is why Lin needs to start at PG on another team. He can help lead a team to beat top teams in the NBA. Cavs and maybe Spurs today.

  • HVJoy

    So happy I rushed back home for the 2nd half of the game! Go Lin!

  • cshot

    leggo jeremy. you can do this!!!!!! bring the W and PLEASE let the guy get more PT and touches

  • I am The Jason

    This game has a playoff feel to it.

  • zxcvb

    I think everyone here knows that! Trouble is no one but MDA will let him!

  • Rick Johnson

    Oh, no Walker back in. SMH

  • ViNuyork

    hope you win this game– gonna showcase JLin for the spurs n pops next season

  • zxcvb

    I know. At least Lamb was playing some D here and there.

  • sws94

    There’s another one tomorrow!!

  • LinMad

    KW in for Lamb?

  • Lefon Jang

    3333333333333

  • NONONO

    Spurs play excellent team ball every year. Lin would shine there

  • Alain Gervais

    333333333

  • Joe what do you know

    Lamb chopped…

  • Alain Gervais

    And another one

  • ViNuyork

    d HOT HAND….

  • Rick Johnson

    3333333!!!

  • sport

    Parker to bench before he retires? Did Pop even say anything about that? Hard to imagine Pop will bench Parker for Lin.

  • blubell
  • zxcvb

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • LinMad

    3333333333333333333333333333

  • sws94

    YEAH!

  • NONONO

    why KW?????????????????????????

  • OH YEAH!!!! LINSANITY, BABY!!!

  • zxcvb

    LIN >>>>>>> Kemba

    Jeremy Lin is UNCONSCIOUS on @NBATV! #SASatCHA
    https://twitter.com/NBA/status/712081142862757888

  • HVJoy

    25 for Lin and Hornets led by 3!

  • NONONO

    Replace KW with Lee!!!!!

  • Briiick

    Lin’s 3 was mean !

  • zxcvb

    Walker hogging it but Spurs bailed him out.

  • blubell
  • John Focker

    Because Vegas. Hornets beating Spurs would cost a lot of people a LOT of money.

  • NONONO

    NNNNNOOOOO REASON put KW BACK

  • LinMad

    lol makes it sound like he got hit hard and knocked out

  • blubell
  • NONONO

    Clifford cannot let Lin shine over KW?

  • Lefon Jang

    Kemba blocked again

  • oh no … Kemba has the ball :{

  • blubell
  • Alain Gervais

    Wow this is so intense

  • LinMad

    good D

  • Briiick

    The announcer is excited about Lin.

  • KWC

    Good preview of playoff

  • Bring Lee in for Kemba!!!!

  • LinMad

    BREAKING: Spurs to sign Lin for $15 mln next year (just kidding)

  • adele

    Championship feel? East against west?

  • NONONO

    If Lin started this game, imagine what scores now?

  • $17M for #17 LOL

  • blubell
  • sport

    Lin too nice, gave Kemba 2 positions to do his thing before asking for the ball and the lead is now down to 2

  • Lefon Jang

    it’s possible consider Parker is old

  • JJ Hui

    Coach needs to prop his trophy!

  • Joe what do you know

    Marv was wide open Kemba!!! Bloody h***!!!

  • HVJoy

    And, the game is on NBA TV?

  • your son’s voltaire

    eric collins is having a field day

  • zxcvb

    *eye roll*

  • adele

    Yes that’s our Lin 😊

  • Alain Gervais

    if Lin Pnr the have khwi on Lin

  • LinMad

    Cliff should sit KW.

  • cshot

    Lol i laughed so hard when stephanie ready said that the hornets know how to feed the hot hand… first time all year lol

  • sport

    Depends if Parker retires or goes to bench. Definitely don’t want Lin to replace Gino as bench player.

  • zxcvb

    Only when the hot hand is Kemba or Batum.

  • LinMad

    win or lose, Lin showed everyone he can be a PG. Why isn’t Cliff playing him at PG? Not even a backup PG.

  • sport

    You know why he don’t want nor value him!

  • heart

    Me too! She’s been quiet since Lin been leading the game. Her angles always favors KW, of course!

  • wandertheglobe

    Pop puts Leonard on Lin?

  • LinMad

    I dare Cliff to sit Lin now lol

  • NONONO

    KW PG = LOSING

  • Lefon Jang

    Kemba turnover

  • LinMad

    Nelly is from Charlotte?

  • Pete Roces

    kawhi leonard on LIn now, thats ultimate respect from pop

  • your son’s voltaire

    he’s scared. can’t sit Lin when he’s scoring

  • Nitron

    That’s a respect

  • Alain Gervais

    good defense on Spurs

  • LinMad

    KW …..

  • zxcvb

    That was a foul, but still a nice play by Green.

  • zxcvb

    Another BS call against the Asian guy.

  • zxcvb

    Green flopping badly.

  • LinMad

    BS call

  • That’s a BOGUS foul!

  • Lefon Jang

    22222222222222

  • Pete Roces

    same old story, NBA not letting Lin shine.

  • Alain Gervais

  • blubell
  • LinMad

    No stupid fouls

  • sws94

    Fantastic, so proud of him.

  • I am The Jason

    Lin is scorching tonight.

  • heart

    Clutch Gene LIN!!!!

  • Lefon Jang

    I think Lin will finish the game today

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin is CLUTCH
    Kemba is crutch

  • Joe what do you know

    LINSANITY IN CHARLOTTE!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Man, if only Lin was the starting PG

  • LinMad

    All Lin need are touches to get in the rhythm. Cliff needs to allow Lin to be the backup PG. Tired of Lin sitting in corner 80% of the time.

  • CaliUSMC

    I’m really happy man… great game.

  • Pop: “I Want This LIN in my TEAM now!!!” LOL

  • Alain Gervais

    0.4 left

  • Epie

    Please win1!!

  • Joe what do you know

    This game is totally worth giving up 10 holes of golf…

  • LinMad

    WOW 0.4 for a 3?

  • John Focker

    Kemba can’t lead the Hornets to beat sub-.500 Nuggets, while Lin beats Cavs AND Spurs. Sure, Walker starts.

  • LinMad

    This game > 7 wins in a row with KW as leading scorer

  • cdblue10

    I hate work…LOL

  • blubell
  • Lefon Jang

    HORNETS WIN !!!!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    we winning

  • Alain Gervais

    I hate that guy… kewl tweet though lol

  • cdblue10

    Hahaha,this guy has no clue.

  • Lefon Jang

    WOW !!!!!!!!!!!

  • Linzen

    Miss this Linsanity game! 😩😭

  • OH YEAH ….. LINSANITY happened, Hornets WON!

  • Lefon Jang

    I’m gonna watch this game 3 times at least

  • Epie

    ME HAPPY!!

  • LinMad

    We just beat the greatest team in the league thanks to Lin.

  • blubell
  • NONONO

    Lin > CLE, LIN > Spurs

  • CaliUSMC

    Did Lin miss any shots in the 4th?

  • wandertheglobe

    LOL…Cliff can actually coach.

  • gasparthe2nd

    Lincredible!!!! Jeremy Lin is the Man. Let him lead and he becomes a most extraordinary player.

  • Briiick

    The 3 NBA commentators are talking about Linsanity !

  • blubell
  • LOL Lee intercepted the ball like a cornerback!

  • golfhacker

    On national TV too!

  • Alain Gervais

    Spurs can control curry but not :Insanity

  • ViNuyork

    LINSANITY 2.0….. C. CLIFF thanx for leaving him there….

  • blubell
  • zxcvb

    That was the game of the year. No question.

    Lin is responsible for ALL three elite wins this year. Kemba can only beat non-contenders. He literally never beat a Lebron team or the Spurs until Lin did it tonight.

  • CaliUSMC

    wtf was that NELLY?

  • rookie75094

    Wooohooo!!!Linsanity!!!

  • zxcvb

    Curry needs help. Lin can score on his own, fighting his own teammates and refs.

  • heart

    Sooooooooooooooooo Happy for Lin! And who led the win for Hornets w/ tough team????

  • Martin Chong

    The win will keep me happy for the whole week!!

  • NELLY let out a primal scream.. a side-effect of LINSANITY FEVER LOL

  • grover chang

    When will pop learn his lesson?

  • blubell
  • CaliUSMC

    why is he there? so random. ha

  • Steppen03

    WHAT THE H*** DID I JUST MISSED …??!?
    JL7 & Hornets BEAT The Spurs!
    I just checked in the box score for first time and saw the score and …BAM!!! – JL7 sealed the deal! =)

  • Alain Gervais

    ohh year forgot

  • John Focker

    This one Andy guy from a TW blog site (who claims to have inside connection) claimed one day before the game that Lin will be UNLEASHED.

    I say now that he’s for reals!

  • blubell
  • gum

    It is over 2am in Munich….I am so excited that I will not be able to fall asleep! Congratulations to Jeremy Lin and his fans……Hornets too. I think PFV would be so happy too!

  • sport

    When he offers Lin a big contract to replace Parker.

  • grover chang

    Kemba would be killed if he blatantly ignored Lin at this point. Like the emperor allowing the gladiator to continue in the gladiator movie. Are you not Lintertained

  • wandertheglobe

    Best game of Lin career!

  • JoeTeam

    I’m with you, just dropped in for a bit in the 4th wondering if JLin would be allowed to finish, and got a biz call and whoosh! What a game. Can’t wait for highlights!

  • I so want to hear Pop’s post-game interview on JLin LOL

  • kauaiblue

    Linsanity!!

  • BobbyH

    So far.

  • Alain Gervais
  • Monk

    This is a great start to my day.
    Im gonna nice to my coworkers

  • LinMad

    I bet you Cliff won’t even mention Lin in press conference. Maybe a small acknowledgement and he’ll change the subject and focus on to other players

  • JJ Hui

    STARTING PG, not backup!

  • heart

    Lin led Hornets to win against Cavs for the first time since 2010. Now Lin led Hornets to win Spurs for how many season,10? Anyone know?

  • CaliUSMC

    First take segment tomorrow? lol

  • adele

    You missed the game? My throat hurts because I shouted a lot! Lol

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin on NBA TV interview now

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • sport

    LOL Lin with 29pts while Kemba with single digit points wahahahah! Lin breaks another Hornets franchise record! First beating Cavs and coming back from 23pt deficit!

  • no way, better than all those Linsanity games? or the triple double?

  • wandertheglobe

    Rick Kamla interviewing Lin on NBA TV

  • blubell

    Amen.

  • Lefon Jang

    Lin gave a lot of credit to Cliffo on NBA TV !

  • CaliUSMC

    Short one..

  • blubell
  • golfhacker

    You need to consider the competition. Definitely top-3 performance.

  • LinMad

    Lin #2 on NBA Pulse. KW doesn’t even get on here.
    http://www.nba.com/pulse/

    Hornets is going to lose their real franchise player.

  • sws94

    Right, it’s not the best game. But it is the top 5 this season. Almost as good as the Cavs game. Maybe better than Toronto.

  • sport

    LOL Batum likes Lin! Was wondering which player poured water on him. Seriously this team would be perfect with Kemba! Lin and Batum can lead this team on their own without that selfish chucker and ball hog.

  • Lefon Jang

    NBA needs this game from LIn. NBA needs Linsanity to happen again.

  • HVJoy

    exciting…..thrilling…..dinner-skipping good…..so-proud-I-could-cry…..Linsanity!!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Tonight, Lin got maybe 60% of the touches and looks that Curry and Kemba get every damn game.

    Beating the spurs with 29p in 31m was the result. Just saying.

  • LinMad

    cause it’s rare for Cliff to play Lin this way. If he did it more, we would have won more games and watch more exciting ones too.

  • Dan Ang

    First, the Hornets (sans Kemba/Big Al) ended the Cavs 5 game win streak against them and giving MJ his sweet revenge. Now beating the Spurs, coming back from a 28-7 deficit in the 1Q. We can’t make this up. Jeremy Lin is gonna get PAID next year!

  • heart

    He’s always gracious! Cliff wanted this win bad. He had to play Lin seeing Spurs got KW’s number and KW couldn’t get it done tonight no matter how hard he tried!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • I am The Jason

    M. Williams 2-7 6pts
    K. Walker 2-11 6pts
    F. Kaminsky 2-9 5pts
    A. Jefferson 1-9 3pts
    J. Lamb 1-5 4pts

    Linsanity 11-18 29pts

    Side note. Lin scored more the the Spurs Bench 18pts.

  • Hope

    Wow, I missed this game. Bummer!

    With Kemba’s 40min every game Lin would be average 40 points!

    So happy for Lin. This game once again prove the haters are wrong!!!

  • Briiick

    Lin lets his teammates shine when beating weak teams, he is only allowed to show up when facing unbeatable teams. Thanks Hornets for saving Lin for his super star status.

  • blubell
  • LinMad

    It’s good that Lin played well on a blackout game cause this is broadcasted nation wide I think. More publicity for Lin.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Sophie Paris

    The linsanity game of the year

  • sport

    NBA is pretty dead right now minus GSW and Curry. Lin brings excitement to the league.

  • Alain Gervais

    this is true

  • Sophie Paris

    They didn’t take Lin seriously lol

  • CaliUSMC

    Don’t feature this lol

  • CaliUSMC

    yes!!

  • Dan Ang

    Maybe that’s Cliffy’s plan all along. Bait and switch! Just kidding =P

  • Sophie Paris

    Spurs bench was off tonight

  • zxcvb

    He easily could have had 40 with 40m. He didn’t even touch the ball for his first 4m!

    In truth, he got 29p in 27m.

  • travis

    they had leonard on lin the whole second half

  • sport

    Lin’s been struggling, Spurs and Pop thought they didn’t need to guard him, big mistake!

  • DX

    Great fan, you got payback.

  • zxcvb

    Watching the postgame, Lin’s teammates are so happy when Lin leads them to a big W (CLE, TOR, SAS). When Kemba “goes off” versus the Jazz or whoever, everyone just walks to the locker room.

    Seeing ballhoggers like Kemba and Harden dominate isn’t rewarding for their teammates. Seeing team-ballers like Lin or Kawhi or Draymond dominate always gets people hyped.

  • Hope

    Can I get some long a## positive praise from a hater fan instead of 1 line or silence?

  • zxcvb

    They’re mostly on the other forum. Some making insults still.

  • sport

    Including Batum who is a teamplayer besides earlier in the season.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Skip is gonna have a fun time rubbing it in Stephen A’s face. but lol at people’s twitter handle with “Real” in it

    URGH

    so cool

  • golfhacker

    Lin 31 mins, Kemba 30 mins….hmmmmm

  • Alain Gervais
  • LinMad

    they can’t handle the truth. they can only handle fabrication

  • zxcvb

    He is naturally, but this season, he wants to get PAID. Some dumb team will pay him though, so I guess he knows what he’s doing $$$-wise.

  • Arsenium12 .

    The Hornets last beat the Spurs in January, 2010.

    In their last 30 regular season games (back to Jan, 1998) the Hornets beat the Spurs 6 times (counting tonight).

    What a night for Lin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    See : http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/rivals.cgi?request=1&team_id=CHA&opp_id=SAS&is_playoffs=N#games::none

  • LW

    They contained Kemba alright.

  • Lefon Jang

    something’s not right?

  • blubell

    Clifford: Jeremy Lin was terrific.

  • I am The Jason
  • Briiick

    Batum is a wise guy, he tried, knew his limitation and settled for the right play for himself.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • I feel like Lin’s getting more attention from big names this game than the Cavs game. Is this because it’s on NBAtv? Or because beating the Spurs is more impressive than beating the Cavs? Or both?

  • CaliUSMC

    Is his post game over?

  • LinMad

    29 pts from the bench though? Against the 2nd best team? Unheard of. Lin earns everyone’s respect right there.

  • Hope

    Forget cliff. Idc

  • adele

    Double that!

  • I’ll create a new post-game thread soon

  • Lefon Jang

    Spurs is on another level than the Cavs

  • Briiick

    The compounding effect of beating contenders one after another.

  • zxcvb

    Lin and MDA in Brooklyn would be so perfect.

    Even if Prokhorov is a Lin Doubter, the high-scoring games, media coverage and global $$$ would be well-worth it. And we all know that Lin would at least lead them to a Top 4 seed and 2nd rd playoff run.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • golfhacker

    Just saying when Jeremy gets minutes as PG good things happen. He should have had at least 3 more assists too if the bigs stepped up.

  • Lam

    I hope spurs sign lin after this audition.

  • BobbyH

    One of them, just after Spurs shut down Curry and GS.

  • Dan Ang

    Absolutely right!

  • JoeTeam

    Yeah, I was working and I thought, let me check the score. Then it was … wellk JLin did great guess he’ll sit. One phone call and then it was over. I didn’t get to enjoy all that he did to bring them back and win. I hope there is a replay somewhere. So good, glad you saw it!

  • sport

    Lin’s beating them every year but still nothing.

  • LinMad

    Lin surpassed Lebron James and Steph Curry on NBA pulse. He’s now #1: http://www.nba.com/pulse/

  • cshot

    lol popovich “”He was decent,” laughs, then adds, “we couldn’t stop him all night.”

  • grover chang

    Spurs held the spotlight because they best GSW in what was billed the greatest regular season game in history. So knocking them off the next game was big.

  • zxcvb

    Yep. They still have Manu and Mills and they’re loyal.

  • Martin Chong

    Yes, with ridiculous poisonous big fat contract, because he deserves every penny of it!

  • Alain Gervais

    https://twitter.com/CNM_JLin_Vids/status/712089107867017216 This is not true most people are talking about Lin. This is definitely Lins biggest game since Insanity.

  • Alain Gervais

    lol

  • BobbyH

    That’s something from a championship coach and from a top defense team.

  • zxcvb

    Probably some backhanded comment.

    “Lin was terrific tonight…except some TOs. Kemba drew all the attention, so Lin hit some shots and they went in.”

    Lin also played elite defense, but I doubt Cliff noticed.

  • Sueki

    give credit to the coach tonight….

  • heart

    These NBA TV guys still did not give Lin full credit for winning over the Spurs… They mentioned Lin playing behind KW and Lee… implying he’s just a bench player… God I pray that one team that Lin is waiting for to lead as starter pg to bring them to the promise land will be here soon, next season. No more playing behind anyone… Lin is the game changer, starting caliber PG with Clutch GENE!

  • Alain Gervais

    yes they did

  • LinMad

    LMAO

  • cshot

    if he was “decent” and still able to whoop your team, then make that man be ON your team pop! hahaa

  • sws94

    Believe. He’s Jeremy Lin. On the biggest stages against some of the highest quality opponents Lin delivers. He steps up and delivers. He is a winner. Always. When he struggles don’t stop believing. Be patient. Struggling brings hunger, desire and he doesn’t give up. When the time is right, he’s there to save the day.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Rick Johnson

    Manu going to retire after this year. Almost didn’t come back this year.

  • Epie

    Yes, for not benching Lin.

  • sws94

    Love Pop.

  • zxcvb

    Blatt’s Cavs were great but vulnerable. Spurs are elite, as good as GSW minus their “rest games.”

  • Alain Gervais

    This is th most media Lin has gotten since Insanity days. The fact he is doing this in charlotte is amazing

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Alain Gervais

    It was sarcasm

  • heart

    They said Lin is “playing behind KW and Courtney Lee”. That’s not full credit to me!!!

    Need to beat Curry now

  • Martin Chong

    I’m going to spend all my time here until highlight uploaded.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • LinMad

    I was wrong. Before I said Cliff needed to play Lin 35 minutes today if they want to win. Apparently you only need 31 minutes of Lin =)

  • cshot

    i know

  • Alain Gervais

    They barely mention them. They said It was Lins win.The spoke about Lin for 5 minutes. They talked about the spurs for 30 seconds

  • Sueki

    so true…. so true…

  • zxcvb

    But Mills still has seniority. Until Parker retires, Lin wouldn’t see big minutes.

    SAS should be on the radar, but Brooklyn or Philly is better.

  • sport

    Manu is SG and 6th man, Lin deserves to be starting PG!

  • HVJoy

    Good Lin just became cooler too.

  • KWC

    Guess his PT tomorrow against an easy team.

  • adele

    Smh. Clifford can’t just give him a break. A praise with negative remark? What a d.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin played best when Kemba was OFF the court. Unless Kemba could draw attention from the bench. LOL

  • Briiick

    13

  • LinMad

    KW wish he was Lin today

  • sport

    Philly for sure if MDA becomes head coach instead of associate coach.

  • zxcvb

    17m. He’ll get benched to prop up Kemba, just like the game after the CLE win.

  • KWC

    You too lazy. You just flipped the digits.

  • Nitron

    Good one 🙂

  • heart

    Whatever… I heard them say Lin “playing behind KW and Lee”, that TO ME is not enough credit…

  • Yascar

    If he wins, it will be in large part because of games like this one.

  • blubell
  • adele

    That’s pretty effective and efficient Lin for you. If it’s Kemba, either a loss or OT

  • I am The Jason

    Lin needs to start. I say go to Brooklyn or Philly

  • HVJoy

    It is about time Clifford gives credit where it’s due.

  • Sueki

    amazing ONE MAN SHOW!!!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Parker is slowing down. Spurs need a younger PG for next year if they wan’t to go against GSW in a 7 game series. They would have to carry Parker on a stretcher by the 7th game. Maybe Parker can go to the bench.

  • zxcvb

    No, they deserve credit! Lin IS playing behind Kemba and Lee.

    That’s what makes his performance so stunning and his “struggles” understandable.

  • Alain Gervais

    They spoke about Lin for 5-7 minutes. They mentioned his teammate once in the whole thing for 5 seconds

  • heart

    Notice Lin always makes timely basket to either tie the game or get the lead for his team.

  • just to be clear (since I can’t tell), he was still using his new shooting form, right?

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin said he switched his shot because it made his legs tired

  • sport

    get ready to skip tomorrow’s game, Lin will get benched with limited minutes after every break out game.

  • Alain Gervais

    yes

  • Brewkowski

    For some reason, I’m really enjoying the evening. The weather is awesome, a cool 67F, and nice amount of sunshine due to daylight savings. Enjoying a nice cold brew. Life is good.

  • good news! maybe it’s finally clicked! and some people’s prayers answered.

  • sport

    New form requires less jumping with lower arc = quicker release which in the long run is more consistent and tougher to guard.

  • golfhacker

    And clutch free throws!

  • LinMad

    KW wants to take the shine away before it blows up. Back to statue of Linberty

  • Brewkowski

    Everyday.

  • BobbyH

    Nooooo, the flow of the posts …..

  • golfhacker

    Have another one for me!

  • zxcvb

    He deserves it based on his all-around play. His defense is elite even when he doesn’t get the ball (and his %s fall as a result). But it’ll probably just go to the 6th man who has the most PPG, even if his team sucks.

  • Rick Johnson

    I think it’s that the shot requires less leg so when the legs are tired towards the end of the game it won’t effect his shot as much.

  • Epie

    lol psalm234 is our Cliff 😛

  • sport

    Hope KW continues on his shooting slump for rest of the season!

  • HVJoy

    I thought Spurs did that only for the last 4 or 5 min. in 4Q

  • adele

    True. Lol! But we savor this win for Lin. One of the NBA announcers said that its Lins win tonight. Kemba is 2/11. He said this is not Kembas win. Yeah!

  • Hope

    This kind of game makes me hate that Melo guy more. What an ah

  • Brewkowski

    Will do brother. 👍

  • your son’s voltaire

    and the armchair fans will come storming back with their “Lin’s shot is broken” theories

  • Alain Gervais

    very clutch this year

  • sport

    30+minutes and playing PG! Lin had 30 minutes games for Hornets in other games but iced out by Kemba’s ball hogging.

  • BobbyH

    That alone could spark some conversations why Lin played behind KW/Lee with that capacity.

  • Alain Gervais
  • sport

    This one and the one against Cavs.

  • sport

    And haters will say he’s trash and it’s only 1 game.

  • heart

    Did you guys lost your voice from screaming when Lin made clutch 3s and free throws tonight? I could hear you guys/gals, kidding, lol. Happy that this game was nationally televised and he won for Hornets. It was depressing the first quarter for sure….

  • your son’s voltaire

    melo and kobe are so selfish it’s unbelievable. those two are buddies, too

  • Dan Ang

    Yes, more lovin’ and less hatin’

  • grover chang

    Thank God Lin got to play his game and his suffering was rewarded on a rare hornets national televised game. God’s timing was perfect.

  • your son’s voltaire

    i had to plug my ears because people here would constantly post “3333333333” lol j/k

  • adele

    My throat hurts. Lol!

  • Dan Ang

    All day, every day, in every way!

  • heart

    You understand me. That’s what my thought went when I heard that!

  • sport

    Melo, Kobe, Harden, Kemba all selfish volume shooters and Kemba’s by far the worst shooter and least efficient of them all!

  • cdblue10

    Now I guessed the so called experts about Lin can’t say anything now,shaky handles,can’t shoot very tentative,all your doubts have been answered tonite…LOL

  • your son’s voltaire

    this win was so sweet in many ways. from the very start to the very end.. the gift just kept on giving!

    More like roll eyes.

  • sport

    No coincidence that Kemba was “missing” in both games! Kemba can’t handle elite defense, he will go into shooting slump if they make playoffs.

  • Dan Ang

    Only the best from Pops

  • ViNuyork

    haha—dats pops— best compliment

  • NONONO

    Lin shows his best by leading the team beat best three top teams CLE, Spurs and Raptors. But he has hart time to be NBA 6 the man? No Lin, No second round playoffs.

  • LinMad

    they don’t know that Lin was marginalized during his “sucky” run

    ya i didn’t understand why KW was put back in. Even some Hornets fans said they wanted to see KW sit and bench to start in the 3rd.

  • Brewkowski

    Was MJ there in person?

  • JJ Hui

    Yes love the beautiful palaces/gardens and cathedrals all over Germany!

  • Steppen03

    Honestly, I don’t care for the title Sixth Man… JL7’s No sixth man on this Hornets team. All I care is: games like tonight where he’s unleashed. Just need some glimpses of brilliance for auditions for the next season.

  • Maknusia

    Oh man! missed the game!!!! darn!

    Hugs to everyone!!! Great Great game..yet another historic game from Jeremy Lin!

    Go LIN!!!

    I’m not sleeping tonite…gotta watch the whole game!!!! :))

  • Bulldog

    This is not a real Lins game. His shoot reform is complete, but he’d played an SG instead of playmaker.

    No pnr on the floor, no strong side weak side transition. Not the best of Lin yet.

  • Bulldog

    23pts and 8a 4r 2s plus 1.3b is more likely.

  • Dan Ang

    Front row of course!

  • Brewkowski

    Awesome! Based on posts, it seems like MJ’s been keeping a low profile and not present or visible at games. So did he react to Linsanity? Or cool as a cucumber?

  • Illbe
