G72 CHA @ DET Game Thread

With 11 games left, Jeremy Lin has made a strong push with an inspiring Linsanity performance in the past 3 games of averaging 22pts with a scorching hot 63% FG and 88% 3FG that generated a lot of Linsanity buzz in the media.

  • In 2 winsΒ vs the Pistons, JLin has played well with 10.5 with 47% FG and 43% 3FG averaging 24.13 minutes/game and a plus minus of +16.9
  • The Pistons had 4 game winning streak at home vs Kings/Nets/Bucks/Magic so they have good momentum despite the lesser opponents
  • JLin has continued to ride the “Less Thought” Linsanity and to develop more chemistry with Kemba and Batum which will be crucial for the playoff run.

Let’s go, JLin! Let’s hope and prayΒ JLin would continue to play well and enjoy playing his style of basketball on the court.

    In my heart, there’s a soft spot for funny wholesome stuff…

  • dave lam

    It will great for JLin to win sixth man of the year award. Keep up the high play until the end of the season and the award will to to JLin instead of Kanter

  • blubell

    I’m still waiting for you to update to Zootopia! Lol

  • blubell

    Voting Hairsanity as always πŸ™‚
    I read that this game will be on NBA TV. I hope he plays well again!

  • Maknusia

    Am I late to the party?!!! Its Good Friday….Bless Lin, Bless Hornets, Bless his fans and pretty much everyone!

  • bolero
  • Rick Johnson

    So much Lin chatter in the media after just two great games. Please let’s have a third one to pour more gasoline on the fire. !!!!

  • JoeTeam

    Let’s go Lin! and fans.

    – play to uplift people
    – play to inspire
    – play for the team to win!

    Replace with Post and we got it from keyboard to hoop.

  • HVJoy

    Thank you for sharing another Greg’s article. He is a devoted Lin fan, who follows Lin’s games closely and independently.

  • LinMad

    I don’t care anymore if Clifford doesnt support Lin. Lin has God’s support and his fans.

  • HVJoy

    – play for his next contract πŸ™‚

  • LinMad

    I’m not sure what’s more embarrassing for this organization. Clifford’s comments about Lin in the past 48 hours or the anti-LGBT law that passed and threatens to move ASG 2017 out of Charlotte.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin / Lee / Jefferson has been very good defensively the past 3 games. Surprising since Al not really thought of as a defensive player. Will be interesting to see how this group defends Drummond.

  • heart

    Like most of us here and even Greg Owens saw through the thick veil of politics that Cliff had deliberately conveyed to the public about Lin. Greg’s article of 25 March 2016 summed it up nicely the sentiment that most of us felt.

  • heart

    What’s up w/ this all of the sudden?

  • grover chang

    In honor of playing the pistons tonight a timely article by their no. 2 pick on the 2003 NBA draft. Darko Milic. He was drafted before Melo and pistons fans have been regretting that day ever since. But Darko blames the NBA system for his failures.

    https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/nbas-most-notorious-draft-bust-151151377.html?nhp=1

  • Maknusia

    Hornet may not get to host the next ASG because of state law of anti LGBT

  • blueCypher

    I doubt the all star game will get moved

  • CJSHYY

    I think so. This statement just show they are anti the law but we are w you guys…. come to our ASG.

  • LinMad

    Majority of people from NC actually support this bill. So it will be difficult to overturn it.

  • spiderman

    Wish they’d apply this policy to LIN who faces discrimination by media, coaches, GMs, owners, referees, hateful public and even security guards

  • Sophie Paris

    Can’t wait the game. I need to relax!!!

  • David Ly

    It’s a NBA TV game today just like the Spurs. No live games from league pass. Will have to stream live with links from: https://m.reddit.com/r/nbastreams/

  • adele

    Pray that God will enlighten him next season πŸ™

  • adele

    God has its way of making you regret on wrongdoings and bad things that you have done. This organization will pay for the price. They have their chance to have Jlin in their team but they abuse his goodness and not treating him well this season. It’s too late now for damage control. The damage has been done. And I don’t think Lin is up to the repair of the damage. I’ve always known that it’s the law of nature that it’s easy to give birth than resurrect the dead. Only Jesus Christ can do that.

  • JoeTeam

    good one, easier to procreate without care than to resurrect from the dead. Only this weekend …

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Pour yourself a glass of wine Sophie.

  • JoeTeam

    pray for us, by all the arguments here. I mean, we can be basking in joy from last week, but I guess we are all stressed out with the elections bscott and what’s happening in Europe.

  • heart

    Cliff must have said some pretty awful things in timeout. Excerpt from Michael Wallace in today’s ESPN article, 25 Mar 2016:http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/15062204/charlotte-hornets-hottest-team-eastern-conference

  • LinMad

    I think this Jeremy Lin karma is real. Treat Lin poorly, get dirt in return.

  • donsmacau

    Not sure if this has been posted yet but we had a fortuitous and magnanimous gesture by the Prosecutor Ken Thompson in the Peter Liang police shooting case
    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/25/nyregion/brooklyn-prosecutor-emerges-as-shrewd-victor-in-akai-gurley-case.html
    He recommend just PROBATION and NO jail time for Peter and on April 14, Justice Danny Chun will sentence him so we cross our fingers he accepts the recommendation and justice is served.

    For those of you who are religious and if Peter himself is a Christian say a prayer for him if you faithful believers think that might help.

  • donsmacau

    Funny thing is that only 1 person came out of that timeout heeding the words Clifford spoke.

    The rest were timid, shell-shocked, confident-less, confused scrubs masquerading as NBA starters.

  • donsmacau

    That is until JLIN inspired them to do something, anything

  • Joe what do you know

    Words are powerful. Having different type of teammates in pickup games really made me realise that. One was particularly nasty. Blaming teammates for each missed basket, lost balls or whatever he can whip out at people. Another one doesn’t dis teammates at all but rather high five us, constantly pats us on the shoulder for encouragement and say things like “great shooting!”, “that was nice” etc.

    As you might expect, I always play better with that encouraging teammate. Words are powerful…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The “Well forget it, let’s go.” is my favorite.

  • LinMad

    I think this may be Kemba’s night because this is his chance to shine nationally like Lin did against the Spurs. However, I think it might backfire because Kemba will play more ISO today and will try to get his. It could cost the game if Cliff doesn’t utilize Lin at PG. Cliff may enable KW to do just that while marginalizing Lin so he doesn’t get another Linsanity media attention.

    What’s bad is that Kemba already had his chance multiple times to get national media attention but blew it. I mean he’s in position to be the super star. He’s starting, Lin is not. He gets the ball in his hands, Lin rarely does.

  • donsmacau

    Let’s see if Stan Van Gundy has a plan this time for Kemba – if SVG watched any film of the last few games of KW – it isn’t too difficult for any high school coach to understand how they need to defend & neutralize Kemba (Batum for that matter)

  • DX

    Maybe try using a VPN which changing IP to different country.

  • JoeTeam

    maybe JLin never needed that pep talk, he’s always ready to show up and compete.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I can correct the PG-rated “Well forget it, let’s go.” to R-rated version but it might get deleted. lol

  • JoeTeam
  • JoeTeam

    well … eff it is what the web says without getting broken.

  • heart

    So apropos! This is my epiphany or hope to be:
    1. “Let’s Go!” from Linsanity 1.0 era.
    2. “Well forget it, let’s go!” to the upcoming Linsanity 2.0!

  • LinMad

    I see, I hope KW plays smart and pass more than shoot this game.

  • donsmacau

    Not many Home Gms left but …
    … if Starters ever have a 7pt bad Q1 again, do you know what you will hear? Not Boos for the Starters

    19,000 people chanting at the top of their lungs : “WE WANT LIN … WE WANT LIN … WE WANT LIN …WE WANT LIN ” Clifford would be flabbergasted.

    Sweet music to the ears!

  • blueCypher
  • kauaiblue

    Lol… so true

  • blubell
  • donsmacau

    Off the bus in alphabetical order just like elementary/grade school

  • BobbyH

    Respect. It is priceless coming from a person of his background.

  • adele

    Yes yes yes! I like that! Thanks to both of you😊

  • adele

    Thanks JoeTeam. You’re one of our strengths here in this forum. Please post oftenπŸ˜‰

  • kauaiblue

    Kudos to greg for a nicely written article.

  • bolero

    LIn: “Just give me the ball coach” . lol

  • heart

    Bonjour Sophie, comment Γ§a va? PrΓͺt Γ  regarder le match?

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Linzenness

    Of course Lin will opt out.
    Run fast and leave the city.

  • KWC

    Dude needs to start so we can enjoy every game.

  • Ben Johnson

    Should read “(when he opts out”)

  • LinMad

    it’s shopping time for Lin in July. No disrespect to CHA, just $2M is way too low and you know ittt.

  • heart

    Hopefully Pistons bring it to make it a competitive game. Hope they trap and double team KW and see how he reacts… Teams have done these to Lin all the time.

  • blueCypher

    It would be IDIOTIC to OPT IN

  • rookie75094

    Let’s go Jlin! ! ! Spank the Detroit wheel and pulleys! !!

  • kauaiblue

    Lol… isnt it so obvious and palpable the energy he creates… why do they want to fight it sso much? Unleash it!

  • kauaiblue

    Any thoughts on how jln is used tonight? By the way, im a fan of al jefferson now… dont mind his isos…

  • LinMad

    as long as he passes to a cutting Lin

  • BobbyH

    That’s a 2M dollar question.

    Two power force struggling: PR and KW camp. Who would win out? Especially in a national televised game, a good Friday game with focus setting in given the won over Spur, stunning the nation.

    I would say KW camp will prevail but Lin will close with less touches.

  • KWC

    Yeah they have been doing that a lot lately. Interesting to see this development.

  • LinMad

    it makes Alfense much better cause he doesn’t have to force a shot when he’s double teamed

  • spiderman

    Wow, how ironic coming from a brown-noser

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hahaha. I like that

  • Detroit pre-game show talked about the hot 8-2 winning-streak of the Hornets

  • CaliUSMC
  • Epie

    Kemba will get extra minutes. Kemba’s comeback night.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin will get under 25mins

  • Epie

    Not trying to bring this up again, but check the comments. Best comment at the very bottom. Hornets had to do the damage control for sure.

    What kind of music does Jeremy Lin listen to? We spent some time with @hornets guard. #CLT http://bit.ly/1q0UE97 https://twitter.com/CLTure/status/713451758463401987

  • @nba is really promoting JLin now.
    1:34 season highlights!
    https://twitter.com/NBA/status/713505397252825088

  • CaliUSMC

    anyone have hornets feed?

  • oh it’s the same thing πŸ™‚

  • only Pistons & NBATV so far

  • KWC

    What other backups get so much attention?

  • NBA TV mentioned “the return of Linsanity”

  • LinMad

    NBA has been very supportive to Lin this year. I just wish his own coach/FO was.

  • His coach is afraid to get fired if he mentioned the “return of Linsanity” πŸ˜€
    If JLin gets paid $12M, he’ll say it before every game LOL

  • JoeTeam

    I will try. Worried about over amping into the screen if you know what I mean lol.

  • LinMad

    Fox sports feed making Batum look like he’s the key player for Spurs/Nets game. I guess local media wants to give Batum all the credit.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If lin helps them go deep in playoff, the might fight to keep him.

  • @hornets
    Bring ’em bring ’em out πŸ™ŒπŸ½ #CHAatDET

  • JoeTeam

    I’m with you, he threatens to post up and hook in, but then he feeds Lin on the cut. Nice …

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Detroit is fighting for playoff survival

  • KWC

    “We spent so much money on this player so we have got to use him more even if he is worse than that other player who is cheaper” is a classic sunk cost fallacy committed by many teams.

  • yes, I want bidding war to happen!
    “7M/yr”
    “8M/yr + starter”
    “10M/yr + starter + MDA!”
    “How about _****** + *** + ****___? ”
    SOLD!

  • CaliUSMC

    ok thx

  • Alain Gervais

    10-0 run already

  • DX

    Hornets starters sucks!

  • LinMad

    starters look like they need to be rescued again

  • DET jumped to 10-3 quick lead.

    No Hornets can penetrate inside … they’re missing a certain someone

  • LinMad

    this is what happens when Cliff doesn’t give the bench enough credit. This is karma. I bet you even if bench brings the game back in, Cliff’s post interview will be something like, “Yah Lin played well but Batum made him play better”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Wonder who?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No going once going twice?

  • 808JL7

    It’s setting the table for a Linsanity game.

  • Ben Johnson

    This is getting old Cliffie….time to turn on the “Linsanity Signal” and have Jlin save the day once again

  • LinMad

    I want Lin to do well today but it’s not his job to save the team every game. It’s on the coach to figure things out.

  • The guy who made the Spurs coach said, “He’s wonderful! We couldn’t stop him all night long!” πŸ˜€

  • grover chang

    “Linsanity Signal” LOL

  • kauaiblue

    Brett favre does wierd commercials… lol

  • kauaiblue

    R pistons good?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Low budget

  • grover chang

    YES!

  • kauaiblue

    Oh cool… well get a good game then

  • JoeTeam

    2 more mins I hope …

  • LinMad

    not as good as Spurs but a top 8 team in the EC

  • LinMad

    our bigs are being killed, they don’t jump like the Detroit’s bigs

  • kauaiblue

    Hes coming in!!

  • grover chang

    With Drummond that is expected. Arguably the best center in the league.

  • LinMad

    lol prime example that Batum can’t facilitate on a fast break. Got away with a carry

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin in

  • 3:34 left in Q1
    18-24

  • JoeTeam

    easy to see they need lin now … I think I get Cliff … early behind, Lin early. Late ahead, Lin out.

  • LinMad

    Reggie always does good against Kemba

  • Alain Gervais

    He was standing on the side line for atleast 1 minutes of game time

  • KWC

    Having to play catch up too frequently.

  • LinMad

    Lin said it a few times this season. Cliff never acknowledged this though.

  • Alain Gervais

    Reggie have a day on Kemba

  • DX

    Even Lin in now, usually he won’t do so much since Kemba still there. Just wait.

  • LinMad

    sit KW

  • JoeTeam

    yep, as soon as 2nd q starts … down 10 now, maybe Cliff will do something this TO.

  • DX

    It seems everyone knows. πŸ™‚

  • 808JL7

    Kemba can’t defend and stop Jackson.

  • 9pts in 9min on Kemba so far
    Made him look really bad

  • LinMad

    Either sit KW, or keep embarrassing KW on national TV Cliff. You choose.

  • Alain Gervais

    Stop going to AL

  • LinMad

    I guess Lin is back to statue of Linberty

  • Alain Gervais

    Kemba is not a PG

  • Alain Gervais

    stop using him as a PG

  • CaliUSMC

    This is not lookin good

  • JoeTeam

    all the better for Linsanity later in game, bro.

  • LinMad

    Karma I guess.

  • CaliUSMC

    I feel u. 4th quarter madness

  • cdblue10

    What’s the score

  • Lefon Jang

    Nice pass by Lin, Lamb cant finish

  • JoeTeam

    nice kw 3

  • LinMad

    34-21

  • CJSHYY

    So today is Kemba’s night?

  • what a quick decision by Lin
    Very smart

  • cdblue10

    Arrghhh not looking good

  • JoeTeam

    he he, they are not down 23 yet.

  • LinMad

    Lin doing his thing on the defensive end.

  • KWC

    Wow lamb

  • 808JL7

    If it is then Hornets will lose.

  • LinMad

    Lamb wasting Lin’s steal…

  • Lamb missed both FTs πŸ™
    Lin could’ve a hand in Kemba FT and Lamb’s 3pt play

  • heart

    Lin plays defense and opens up court for KW to court.

  • DX

    Too early to say. Lin’s game starts 2nd Q.

  • Alain Gervais

    Kemba hittingg shot but its his Pg skills keeping us Down

  • kauaiblue

    He score a bunch but team still down 12…

  • Alain Gervais

    Kemba has Zero assist in 12 minutes

  • CJSHYY

    Looks like today is Kemba day… Hope Lin is not for D only.

  • LinMad

    Lin, Lee, Lamb, Al and Batum please

    or with Cody, Frank somewhere

  • KWC

    More about his defense

  • JoeTeam

    feeling good for the challenge yet again. Let’s see if JLin’s shot is on. He needs a couple of early hits to get his game going.

  • Hornets might look at the scoreboard: “We’re only down 12pts (24-36) after the 1st quarter. Good thing we have Lin!” πŸ˜€

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Pistons p by p has issue w lin.

  • David Ly

    For those who can’t get the game on league pass, copy and paste into VLC media player, network stream.

  • LinMad

    I honestly wouldn’t care if Lin doesn’t score that much today. He should be discouraged to carry the team when his own coach don’t support him.

  • Lefon Jang

    Kemba out

  • ok, time for Lin to do his thing in the 2nd quarter!

  • Lefon Jang

    Alfense in

  • heart

    Pistons announcers are so boring. JVG should have Jackson keeps driving on KW. Jackson can get records points today. KW is reserving his energy for offense.

  • Lefon Jang

    Lin to Lamb!

  • LinMad

    what file is that? A virus?

  • KWC

    Should attack Morris more

  • LinMad

    Lin will need to shoot 5-7 times this half to get in rhythm

  • LinMad

    Lamb can’t beat his defender, Lin looked confused

  • Lefon Jang

    Aron Baynes killing them!

  • CaliUSMC

    Lazy Batum

  • LinMad

    omg Batum…don’t ever catch a ball one handed and show it on a silver platter

  • Epie

    Why is Lin guarding 2 players? Lamb, come on

  • DX

    No O, No D for Al today.

  • LinMad

    Cliff is drawing plays for Al, Lamb, Kemba and Batum today. Won’t go for Lin.

  • Lefon Jang

    Bad offensive play by lamb followed by poor defense

  • Alain Gervais

    Our Defense is terrible. Ball movement and Player movement is terrible

  • CaliUSMC

    Lamb be getting greedy

  • Joe what do you know

    Looks like my boy is getting his assists… Great!

  • Epie

    Back to his old ways

  • LinMad

    Lamb …

  • Alain Gervais

    When Did Lin get 3 assists

  • LinMad

    man the players out there don’t look like they have good chemistry. Cliff dividing the team up before playoffs was not a good idea.

  • DX

    Lamb will be in doghouse again if keep doing these

  • Epie

    Yeah, something’s really off tonight.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lambs defense is a big issue take him out

  • aras

    Terrible game so far aboslutely terrible. hope Lin goes aggresive if this continues

  • JoeTeam

    that was an example why Lamb is not good. KHuang said that Lamb can outplay the starters, hence the icing. Not true in my view, he’s iced because of plays like that. Not smart. No fake move going in. Gets blocked in an open field like that …

  • DX

    1 to Kemba, 1 to Lamb, 1 to Al.

  • I am The Jason

    Charlotte needs to move more on the court. Detroit is out hustling them

  • Lefon Jang

    Piston 22 rebounds, Hornets 11

  • DX

    Made big different, especially some O rebounds.

  • LinMad

    Lin just needs more PG roles and players need to move off the ball and pass more

  • heart

    Cliff, please let Lin make independently plays. He kept micro manage, direct & telegraph every play from the sideline. There’s no freedom and flow to the game on Hornets end, so opponents can read and get into positions for defense easily.

  • Lin directed the offense to cut the lead to 8 but sloppy plays by Batum and Lamb made it 32-48 πŸ™

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Must be so irritating

  • kauaiblue

    Shoot the ball…

  • Alain Gervais

    Go to the rim

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Guess Lamb gonna be replaced by Troy…Lamb back to dog house…

  • kauaiblue

    Shoot it!

  • Lefon Jang

    Piston bigs play well tonite

  • LinMad

    Lin is discouraged, maybe the stuff Cliff said is getting to his head.

  • JoeTeam

    I want Lin to get mad and get into his game … #LessThought more passion.

  • Alain Gervais

    Defense Locking down the paint causingLin issues

  • JoeTeam

    baynes and drummond?

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin will likely be out after this. Adjustments needed

  • aras

    wow…Lin is not having a good one so far..

  • JoeTeam

    no, it’s in-game adjustment problems. Look at the rebs … bigs are killing our bigs.

  • CJSHYY

    Today is Kemba’s night.

  • Alain Gervais

    The team defense are leaving the three open but locking down the paint. Basically daring us to hit threes

  • aras

    he should be out 2 turnovers in a row..needs to sit and get it going second half..

  • dave lam

    Bad game so far from Lin and the Hornets
    Need to better in the paint Out rebounded by the Pistons

  • Singapore BB Fan

    He needs another 28-7 to be motivated

  • LinMad

    yep Lin not to the rescue today. Maybe 2nd half but i don’t see us closing in with the starters. batum look half asleep.

  • JoeTeam

    not yet. They are roundly getting stopped by the bigs. Rebs ratio tells it. Lin missed 2 midranges that could have heated him up.

  • Alain Gervais

    He only too 3 shot only 1 was open. All was guarded well.

  • DX

    What happened to Lin today, maybe think to much.

  • JoeTeam

    I wouldn’t think so, this team is playing too poorly to sit Lin.

  • Lefon Jang

    22222

  • aras

    kemba will replae

  • Alain Gervais

    2222222

  • KWC

    Maybe Cliff needs to say some more nasty things during half time.

  • JoeTeam

    so CHA took some but you die by the 3 too and runs happen.

  • LinMad

    222222222 tough layup

  • Epie

    Wow..Lin still in, that’s a big difference from Cliff. I like how Lin is keep challenging inside.

  • NBA TV announcer: “Lin made a tough shot! I love watching Lin plays”

  • LinMad

    Pistons commentators said they like watching Lin play, they like him.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin guarding Reggie jackson

  • JoeTeam

    there you go, Lin still in. Be positive. Game situation needs him, so he’s in as Cliff planned. Let this game play out without too much pessimism.

  • LinMad

    KW iso when there are at least 2 guys wide opened.

  • David Ly

    I like how Cliff stuck with Lin after timeout. He actually is letting him play after mistakes and 0-3 shooting.

  • JoeTeam

    didn’t happen, lean to the positive.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s why we lose ….

  • aras

    Detroit playiiing tough tough defense everyone expect kemba struggling…Lin should play a lot this game even if he is starting slow…this is one game you need 2 attackers.

  • DX

    So many +1 and offensive rebounds for Pistons.

  • LinMad

    could be making up for what he said earlier that bothered a lot of fans

  • Lefon Jang

    shots are short tonight for LIn

  • KWC

    Shots just not falling

  • Lefon Jang

    Glad to see Kemba passing the ball to Lin

  • Alain Gervais

    This looks like a loss

  • JoeTeam

    wow, that 3 was air … all day …JLin cold today.

  • aras

    COME ON LIN

  • Epie

    Oh wow.. that was weird

  • Alain Gervais

    Taught about it too much

  • kauaiblue

    Hea hesitating again…

  • Lefon Jang

    that shot wasn’t in rythm. he had to adjust

  • JoeTeam

    not yet bro …

  • DX

    That looks bad, airball for open shoot.

  • Alain Gervais

    We just have nothing

  • I am The Jason

    It’s cold night for Charlotte.

  • JoeTeam

    it was weird, like he had to look down to see his foot off the line or something ?

  • CaliUSMC

    what happened to thinking less?

  • Alain Gervais

    Walker keeping us close

  • LinMad

    Cliff happy Lin doing bad. Letting him stay longer

  • aras

    stop it

  • Alain Gervais

    They are killing us

  • Batum in for Lin at 3:35

  • JoeTeam

    alright, be positive else might as well stop watching now you’ll suffer all game.

  • LinMad

    This is a loss, bring in the 3rd stringers

  • Alain Gervais

    No one is having a good game except kemba. Cliff has to do something.

  • CJSHYY

    What’s wrong w Hornets? Only Kemba got doubt digit?

  • aras

    Alright for the team to get a chance even Lin needs to get it together second half. if he doesnt its a loss. right now kemba is carrying us.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Cool Joe

  • JoeTeam

    heh heh, yelling at halftime? Effing this and that? “Forget it, Let’s Go!”

  • Alain Gervais

    7 players have only hit one shot.

  • JoeTeam

    no, KW is not carrying anyone. He’s making his numbers. If he were carrying, he’d be creating easy buckets.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Shaq a fool shot. Lol

  • LinMad

    I’m not rooting for a W today. I just want them to fail and get some rest for the next game.

  • jimmyL

    thats bad

  • Alain Gervais

    agreed. No one has anything. Extra rest day messed us up a little. That miss three was just too open. Broke Lin normal shot timing

  • Hornets lack of interior D allowed Drummond to score early and opened up space for 3pt shooters
    It has been downhill since then

    Outrebounded 28-15

  • KWC

    Maybe 2 day rest is too much.

  • Alain Gervais

    No it happens often when some one is too open

  • LinMad

    Only one playing PG well is Lin. But his shots are off. What happened to those Al passes to a cutting Lin?

  • Lefon Jang

    It’s all on the bigs tonite

  • aras

    hes scoring at least the others arent doing anything.

  • JoeTeam

    almost like he stopped a shot pulling up to get behind the 3 line, had too much time, and had to shoot from a standing start.

  • dave lam

    Might as well bring in Troy Daniels and let him shoot

  • JoeTeam

    Al hasn’t had the ball with Lin, right? I didnt’ see any action where they could try.

  • aras

    yep its going to be all on walker and Lin but Lin has to step it up him and walker can change the game.

  • jimmyL

    Everyone is playing awful including Lin himself
    He needs to find his shots again and be more aggressive
    hes losing confidence as you can see how he airballed a wide open 3
    Lin made 4/4 against spurs who are a way better defensive team than DET
    Hope he comes back strong in the 2nd half

  • Lefon Jang

    Finally Batum made a 3

  • LinMad

    He has, but Al shot it every time he received the ball. DId not pass

  • JoeTeam

    you are interpreting too much. He had to reset and start cold because his momentum was taking him forward. Please don’t read his mind for us … I could make things up too.

  • jimmyL

    I didnt read his mind

  • JoeTeam

    he always scores … it’s not really bball to put it in the hoop. That’s only part of it.

  • LinMad

    Like i said, it’s Kemba’s day today but that doesn’t mean we’ll win.

  • JoeTeam

    ah, ok.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The only difference is Piston is a weaker team.

  • Lefon Jang

    What a shot by Kemba!!!!

  • JoeTeam

    I can accept that if you ant to say … it’s an ISO day. We’ll lose but KW will get his box.

  • aras

    ah please give him some cred where its due everybody else have been bricking the h*** out of the rim including Lin

  • jimmyL

    Yah so Lin should have no problem tearing them apart

  • Alain Gervais

    Kemba is hot right now

  • Wow, Kemba hit a Curry-like shot from half-court to match Morris 3
    72-56

  • LinMad

    Kemba’s night for sure.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not airball

  • Man, 72pts 1st half points will be hard to overcome

  • JoeTeam

    72 pts first half is pretty amazing.

  • Lefon Jang

    it’s usually an inverse correlation to Lin

  • JoeTeam

    happened before, I think right? Or was it JLin v Jazz where they won?

  • kauaiblue

    Whats going on with jlin? Looks tired.

  • yes, those Pistons are working in all cylinders!

  • LinMad

    Now if only Lin can rally the rest of the players, we might win but if he cant, I can only see us losing with Kemba scoring 30+ pts.

  • JoeTeam

    reread your post, you are being a therapist or mind reader.

  • aras

    dont think that had anything to do with confidence that airball…he should not have hesitated just shoot it insinctively.

  • Alain Gervais

    That was a very disappointing showing by the hornets. They can really be a bit Jykle and hyde

  • jimmyL

    Lamb was awful tonight he disrupted the rhythm for 2nd unit
    also bigs can’t set a proper screen
    Gotta be able to help Lin and Kemba get to the rim

  • Defense has to step up for sure.
    Too many offensive rebounds

  • KWC

    16 points is not impossible but they need to fix the d

  • LinMad

    I didn’t even notice that. Our defense is our main problem.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Against weaker teams…No adrenaline rush

  • jimmyL

    You are overreacting

  • yes, they need to cut on the 2nd-chance possessions

  • LinMad

    maybe that road trip, everyone looks tired except Kemba

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Curry has off nights too

  • jimmyL

    That’s a problem then
    they are down by 16 hope that gets Lin going

  • JoeTeam

    I think he stopped his shooting motion to stay behind the 3, then had to start from unbalanced jump. V weird shot.

  • Their slow-start has been a recurring theme lately even 2-3 games before the Spurs game

  • Lefon Jang

    Piston may not keep up with their hot shooting streak

  • jimmyL

    Yah hes hesitant tonight

  • cshot

    jeremy not doing too well today?

  • Alain Gervais

    more like 6-8 games

  • LinMad

    ya it could all fall apart next half. They might even slack off cause their ahead by so much.

  • kauaiblue

    He doent have to play defense…

  • Alain Gervais

    no one is. The long rest 3 games seem to be in effect

  • LinMad

    shooting not there. Defense and play making is.

  • Alain Gervais

    Piston Made Lin take really hard shots. Except the wide open three but it was too open. Lin thought about it way too long.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s still fun.

  • Joe what do you know

    Wow… Pistons 72pt by half time. What’s going on with Hornets defence?

  • Guest

    Where is the d ??? Looks like an exhibition game.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    He needs to be charged up…that adrenaline rush…that killer instinct

  • jimmyL

    batum needs to handle the ball less
    they can do without his TO’s tn

  • Alain Gervais

    Idk

  • JoeTeam

    I’m not saying he’s not making buckets. He does that all the time. CHA is down by about 20. That’s on him as PG. He’s not making the team work. He’s making his shots. That’s nothing to write home about, but you do and I accept that. For me, you can make all the buckets you want, but you’re still not effective if your team is doing so badly. JLin works to make his team effective. That’s what I’m saying. It’s not KW’s night … it’s just KW as usual.

  • jimmyL

    Bigs cant set proper screens

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Too many 2nd chances, no rebound, need tyler.

  • xeroid

    The problem is Lin wasn’t doing what he was doing the last 3 games. he’s thinking too much, can’t decide while he’s in air whether to shoot or pass, resulting a couple of travelling, and the 3 point air ball which he didn’t really want to shoot with all the time and looking at the line and backing up.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Hornets played bad for 1st half. Only Kemba did well.

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin will get it going the second haif. Just have to find opening. Couldn’t get to the rim at all. Adjustment by cliff have to be made.

  • LinMad

    i agree that was not pretty

  • JoeTeam

    I would have wanted him to make that just to get in the flow of the offensive game.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    So, is Hornets a legitimate playoff team?

  • Alain Gervais

    Bigs having a ton of issue with other things

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin needs to get pizz

  • jimmyL

    Charlotte really needs to find a big who can set screens…

  • LinMad

    I think he tried by sitting Al, but Lamb made some horrible plays. We were as close as 8 pts and it just fell apart with Lamb and Batum making lazy mistakes.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s sitting

  • JoeTeam

    I am not, I am actually quite calm. I’m asking you not to post mind-reading things like … ‘he’s losing confidence’. You can’t read his mind, bro.

  • LinMad

    MKG but he’s too injury prone

  • KWC

    Zeller and Hawes too soft against the brutes, Al too slow and TH too much bench.

  • Alain Gervais

    I agree some iso plays. We didn’t play as a team. The real issue is defense. They scored on us at Will. while it was hard for us to score. thats just a recipe for disaster

  • guest

    I hate seeing Lin labelled “inconsistent” for having some good games and back to bad games again. smh

  • LinMad

    They need Tyler to piss some of the bigs off with contact. I feel sometimes our bigs are too weak/scared.

  • JoeTeam

    #LessThought I think Baynes is having a great game, and Drummond is tough to deal with. He’s going to have to work it out during halftime.

  • Lefon Jang

    Hornets might have to bring in Psycho T tonight.

  • Alain Gervais

    What ever hornets do they have to finish 5 or above. Hawks would kill us.

  • good idea to slow down Drummond

  • jimmyL

    Psycho T?
    I dont think he will ever play…

  • LinMad

    depends on the plan. Kemba ball is not going to work against good teams. Hornets need at least 3-4 guys on the team that does well to really compete with good teams. If only 1 or 2 is doing well, we have no chance.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Their bigs are too strong for zeller and too fast for Jefferson.

  • jimmyL

    But hes a SF

  • JoeTeam

    Yep, I saw the backup too. Weird … should have just taken the long 2 and got into the flow of the scoring.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s cliff

  • jimmyL

    It’s not mind reading

  • Steppen03

    KW keep us in the game. He is really playing like an All Stars for most of the season. Someone has to contain Drummond. Hope to JL7 turn it on in 2nd half.

  • DX

    Me too, unfortunately, he will be labelled until become a starter.

  • JoeTeam

    and Zeller losing that reb to Blake was a bummer.

  • jimmyL

    not a big fan of him

  • Hornets have had this slow-start since 2-3 games before the Spurs.
    No urgency on D. It’s hard to keep expecting Lin to come off the bench to slow down the opponent’s momentum

  • JoeTeam

    lol, 4 quick fouls.

  • Joe what do you know

    Wha!!!!! Steve Blake?

  • heart

    Like I said, Cliff keeps calling plays from the sidelines telegraphing everything to opponents. And most plays are set up for KW, NB, Kam so far. No one is in rhythm, except KW. KW took 14 shot attempts while everyone else has single digit shot attempt…

  • kauaiblue

    Is this wizards game just temporary?

  • JoeTeam

    yep, he slapped a reb outta Zeller’s (corrected by Ager, it was Batum) hands. They needed that reb.

  • Alain Gervais

    I think It was datum who got stripped by Blake

  • His 3s are crucial in this game to keep it close.

    Hornets big men need to step up to grab all rebounds and box out Drummond.
    Lin would need to shoot more midrange Js to open up space to drive inside.
    Less thought and more instinct like he did before

  • LinMad

    When Lin does his own thing, more success. Cliff doesn’t trust Lin at PG. Reason why 2nd unit has so many facilitators all season long. If it isn’t Roberts, it’s Batum, Kemba, Lamb. Bigs refusing to pass to Lin after rebound too. Would rather pass to Lamb/Batum or someone who really isn’t a PG.

  • Joe what do you know

    Feeling lucky I’m not watching it live due to work….

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He did. 16 is doable

  • Lefon Jang

    you’re going to miss a big second half come back by Lin

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin will finish strong. LinPrime will continue

  • JoeTeam

    suit yourself, you cannot read JLin’s mind so your post about him losing confidence is pure fantasy. He’s confident … it’s just a terrible team game, and KW is playing for himself, there is no leadership on the floor, and DET’s bigs are killing CHA’s bigs and there is nothing in the paint. And Lin shooting that 3 air was a mistake, not a lack of confidence. He bailed out of a long 2 to try for the 3, and he was totally in reset mode. A mistake.

  • JoeTeam

    ok, I stand corrected yes you are right now I remember. Thanks.

  • Joe what do you know

    If that happens, I know what my night time entertainment will be.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Exactly, he needs to sit and shut the…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Quite dumb really…when you shout instructions obviously the opposing players heard it too…

  • grover chang

    I thought his shot was fixed. Is Detroit fouling him or he shooting last second shots.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    And confuse your players too

  • aras

    hes shot a couple of well guarded shots detroit killing us everybody playing bad expt kemba

  • JoeTeam

    Ok, big halftime puzzle – how to stop the DET bigs, and how to stop the hot shooting. If they can do that, CHA’s scoring will take care of itself (as long as they don’t rely on one guy in the paint … need some options).

  • Alain Gervais

    Its good defense. As oppose to bad shooting

  • LinMad

    He tried to drive a lot but Piston’s interior D is too good. Also one wide open 3 that he missed. That’s the only bad shot he made.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Ya exactly. To follow or not to follow if the it’s a poor instruction

  • David Ly

    After Lin shoots terrible like 1/6, in the back of my mind I hope Lin goes for at least 5/6 to get to 50% shooting. High hopes.

  • LinMad

    lol that was cute. Marvin passed to Cody and he wasn’t looking. It just hit his arm and bounced back to Marvin.

  • LinMad

    why don’t he signal instead like most coaches?

  • KWC

    Another O rebound.

  • grover chang

    When Lin plays bad, I just want the team to win. Even if it is ugly.

  • Alain Gervais

    Reggie jackson is eating

  • KWC

    Too many second chances

  • Lefon Jang

    Smack down!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    You mean like sending Morse code?

  • Alain Gervais

    The starter won’t Bring the lead down. Cliff has to do something else

  • The Pistons are shooting lights out, not slowing down.
    It will be tough to win this game.

    Bring out Psycho T and Lin to guard big men and RJax

  • aras

    Put Lin in take lee out he is not doing anything get some damn offense going!

  • LinMad

    “I tried so hard. And got so far. But in the end. It doesn’t even matter.” – starters

  • Alain Gervais

    I have to say Kemba is scoring great but its having no impact. He has to worst plus/minus -19

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    There’s no adjustments from cliff

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Is that how they count? Not 6/12?

  • KL

    This is what Clifford wanted. Kemba to get his stats even at the expense of losing.

  • xeroid

    Kemba is scoring 27, good game for him, but the combine point for Kemba and Lee is 30, while the combine of Jackson and Pope was 29, not much different, and the bigs for Detroit was the difference.

  • KWC

    MW still slumping

  • LinMad

    We just need to find a crack in the Pistons and let Lin exploit it. I think Lin driving hard could work. He might get fouled a lot by the bigs. But to be honest, I don’t think Lin should endanger his body anymore.

  • Alain Gervais

    law of averages

  • kauaiblue

    Seems like walkers been playing the whole time…

  • Lefon Jang

    he’s 2-5, not too bad. Obviously not getting many touches.

  • sport

    Had to stay late for work, was thinking I get a feeling Lin will not get to play much this time. Someone should do a chart, whenever Kemba’s chucking shots the entire doesn’t poorly. Whenever Lin plays well everyone plays well and scored 15/20+

  • LinMad

    isn’t Al supposed to be in already?

    EDIT: nvm he is

  • kauaiblue

    Now, the comeback begins…

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin in

  • KWC

    Last chance for a run

  • LinMad

    trip slip lol these Pistons announcers are funny

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin lets go bad pass

  • aras

    nooo nonono Lin thats a stupid pass

  • CaliUSMC

    -___________-

  • LinMad

    It’s so easy to beat Batum cause he doesn’t move his feet when asking for the ball

  • Lefon Jang

    nice move big al

  • KWC

    Looks like no come back today

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin shoulda shot that 3..

  • JoeTeam

    DET have the hops tonight all over the place.

  • aras

    Ah lin does not have it tonight…

  • Alain Gervais

    Detroit seem to just have more

  • LinMad

    DET looks like the best defense team in the NBA today. We need to do more than just take contested shots to break down their defense. Drive and kick. PnRs. etc.

  • CaliUSMC

    *turning off* πŸ™

  • JoeTeam

    I’m giving it 5 mins into Q4.

  • Whitman Lam

    Pistons defense is too good. Every shot is either contested or blocked out of the air. Can’t score against that.

  • CaliUSMC

    Haha.. ur firm on this 4th quarter come back.. fine I’ll stay till 8min mark.

  • Alain Gervais

    i agree their defense is just tough on us right now

  • LinMad

    We just need better PG plays and off ball movement. We’re playing too basic

  • Epie

    Painful to watch, too much hesitation

  • JoeTeam

    Well, it’s not me … It’s Lin. He always tries to give us something in the 4th, so I’m gonna let him serve it up …

  • Alain Gervais

    Only person getting open shots is kemba

  • LinMad

    Alfense is not going to work today. We’re going to need more Zeller and maybe put in Tyler to disrupt the interior.

  • JoeTeam

    he’s being smart – he’s been blocked. DET hoppin’!

  • sport

    Because they know the most Kemba chuck shots the faster Hornets go home cause everyone stays cold.

  • KL

    Basic gameplan against Hornets. Let Kemba shoot. Once he starts hitting a few he will freeze out his own teammates and stop ball movement.

  • JoeTeam

    Dang, I gotta go to family dinner … sorry to preach and not be able to hold up my end. Hope for the best!

  • sport

    Yup smart move by Pistons and this is will be exactly what teams will do in playoffs.

  • Alain Gervais

    Going to Al is not working

  • Lefon Jang

    Alfense is not working against Drumond

  • LinMad

    Drummond taps it in again in front of 3 Hornets. smh at these bigs.

  • Whitman Lam

    Hornets bigs can’t rebound anything. Teams know they can get easy 2nd and 3rd chance pts.

  • Alain Gervais

    2222222

  • CaliUSMC

    lol. it’s cool

  • KWC

    They are too soft.

  • LOL at Drummond at 2 straight goal-tending

  • LinMad

    goal tending

  • Epie

    Thanks Drumm

  • Whitman Lam

    Drummond gets up high over the rim. Hornets big men are all below the rim players.

  • GameWatcher

    That was a mercy call from the ref. It had no chance of going in.

  • Epie

    We should send him a thank you note for saving Lin’s stat πŸ˜›

  • LinMad

    true but he did goal tend

  • KWC

    All these offensive rebounds they allow

  • Alain Gervais

    Piston 45 rebounds – 27 wow

  • GameWatcher

    Don’t expect to get a lot of that

  • He’ll be in Lin’s Christmas list if it gets Lin going πŸ˜€

  • Whitman Lam

    This game was already over an hour ago. Just play some decent garbage time minutes, then go to Milwaukee and get a win.

  • LinMad

    MKG would have been nice for this game.

  • Illbe

    Has Lin played PG tonight?

  • LinMad

    Mr 4th qtr ????

  • LinMad

    ya he got a few assists and then Lamb tried to PG and it fell apart

  • jimmyL

    a little bit

  • KWC

    22 points in 1 Q is asking a bit too much.

  • Alain Gervais

    Detroit defense have been locked down

  • LinMad

    lol we never got the lead. started since 1st qtr

  • Let’s see if JLin can make something happen in the 1st 5 min of the 4th quarter

    Let’s go, JLin!
    http://i0.wp.com/www.jlinportal.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Lin_LINE_LetsGo.jpg?resize=131%2C126

  • sport

    Of course Kemba had to chuck up the last second shot. Whenever Kemba’ allowed to shoot by teams he ices out everyone for his own stats. I jus thope Lin goes 4th quarter mode and gets at least 15 points.

  • sport

    I was thinking 15 points like previous games.

  • LinMad

    i hope KW sits but it’s likely he will play a lot in the 4th

  • Good decision by Lin , just a close miss on bank-shot
    Good putback by Al

  • Illbe

    Please sit Kemba for part of it, so Jlin can PG

  • sport

    Cliff probably thinking, we’ve lost let Kemba pad his stats till the end. Seriously hope these stat padding and long minutes back fires on them.

  • LinMad

    Al jeff had a bad game today too

  • GameWatcher

    Is asking for some team play that hard? Getting blocked left and right and everyone still trying to go ISO.

  • Alain Gervais

    We have nothing.

  • aras

    lin missing these open shots….smh

  • Alain Gervais

    game over

  • JLin’s 3 looked good but just in and out

  • LinMad

    Maybe Lin is thinking too much

  • GameWatcher

    That was a must game too… smh.

  • LinMad

    time for 3rd stringers

  • Alain Gervais

    We just have nothing today.

  • Alain Gervais

    Thank goodness a game is tomorrow

  • aras

    Lin 2/10 come on man….

  • LinMad

    Detroit has so much more energy than we did. Everyone is doing horrible besides KW.

  • KWC

    Well, 80%+ 3pt shooting is not really sustainable.

  • Epie

    Will there be a highlights for today’s game?

  • zxcvb

    No excuses from me tonight. Just an off-game for everyone (except Kemba, lol).

    Lin and CHA were due for a stinker. Let’s see if they freeze Lin out tomorrow for one bad game.

  • Alain Gervais

    Its just one of those games.

  • LinMad

    yes for the assists and defense =P

  • sport

    They should freeze Kemba out for icing his teammates. Whenever he’s making shots this happens and Hornets lose. This is how it will be every game once Lin leaves.

  • blubell

    Yup. No need to overreact.

  • David Ly

    You paste it into a program called VLC Media Player. You can stream directly to your MAC/PC without using a browser. HD video is decently reliable with a good connection. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a2ca49487dcf609f1b4e5d11587131629e5f7f7f62a89476a0818992cb72fc0b.png

  • Epie

    Well, then I’m turning it off. Just painful to watch.

  • Lefon Jang

    nice pass by Lin

  • Man, it’s good there’s another game tomorrow πŸ™

  • LinMad

    MJ should have paid for an airplane trip instead of a long 9 hour road trip I guess

  • zxcvb

    Tonight is the one and only game where Kemba’s volume shooting isn’t hogging.

  • grover chang

    Good thought by Lin to try to shoot team back in, but shot is not going in.

  • KWC

    Yay Hawes will save us

  • zxcvb

    His passing would have been useful. Detroit closed off driving lanes.

  • Lefon Jang

    We need some magic from Troy

  • sport

    Chucking so many shots automatically takes away shooting opportunities from other teammates.

  • GameWatcher

    2/11 did Lin injured his elbow again?

  • zxcvb

    Yes, but he was playing injured before. Just an off-game.

  • LinMad

    man why does Lamb always look for his shot.

  • KWC

    Still winnable, just need 8 consecutive 3s and hold them scoreless.

  • kauaiblue

    Lol

  • Lefon Jang

    everything’s in and out tonite

  • zxcvb

    This is the first bad game in forever where Lin has actually gotten looks and just flubbed.

    It happens. Kemba has had 3 stinkers in the past week.

  • Hansbrough checked in for Al

  • Epie

    Well, my classmate Blake. It was great to see you again.

  • grover chang

    Psycho T!!!!!

  • Epie

    Oh man.. was about to turn it off, gotta watch him play

  • grover chang

    Who is this banes guy? Killing it!

  • KWC

    KW 29 and the next highest one is 10. How can they not lose.

  • grover chang

    Face palm* even lamb is going to miss FT. That kind of night.

  • LinMad

    Hawes is the X factor of this team

  • Alain Gervais

    We just had nothing today. cant take anything from it move on to the next game

  • LinMad

    Wrap it up Cliff. Bring in the 3rd stringers

  • JoeTeam

    Learned from the best.

  • grover chang

    Lin missing. Is his form and shots looking good and just not connecting or are they way off?

  • sport

    Lin needs to take some shots and set up someone else stop just passing to Hawes!!

  • JoeTeam

    Great interior d

  • jimmyL

    At least Lin took 11 shots today just an off night

  • LinMad

    Detroit is just shutting him down. They got good interior defense and Lin wants to drive but can’t.

  • Whitman Lam

    Probably dealing with back issues again.

  • Lefon Jang

    he rimmed out a few easy one too.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    2-11 is bad enough.

  • JoeTeam

    Grrrrrrr …

  • jimmyL

    Off night
    was bound to happen sooner or later

  • LinMad

    when the dancing security guy is more entertaining than the game

  • JoeTeam

    Hey man, you n me, buds for life.

  • Whitman Lam

    Al Jefferson clogging the paint doesn’t help either.

  • LinMad

    Cliff didn’t prepare properly.

  • Alain Gervais

    nope still cant get in there

  • GameWatcher

    A bunch of trees altered his shots and he left his floater home.

  • JoeTeam

    Except gsw later.

  • sport

    Lin out game over.

  • LinMad

    I don’t think Lin could have done anything. It was already a 21 pt lead in the 4th.

  • Whitman Lam

    Cause he’s a selfish player who got a big contract.

  • LinMad

    I had a feeling we would do bad today. i just got the vibe from the whole team and coach. I hope there is no locker room drama.

  • Darin Tanaka

    The whole team was just terrible including Lin. Not sure if they’re tired but they sure looked like it. It’s just one of those games that happens in the NBA.

  • JoeTeam

    These boards lol?

  • LinMad

    and the damage control. Maybe Cliff didn’t have time to prepare the team lol

  • Whitman Lam

    Not surprising. Hornets have the worst road record of any East playoff team. They just don’t win much against good or decent teams at their building.

  • LinMad

    I hope all of our road games aren’t going to end up like this or we’ll be out the playoffs.

  • JoeTeam

    Politics eats up a lot of spirit …

  • grover chang

    Well, Hornets beat them twice in Charlotte. I guess Pistons just wanted it more.
    1) Let walker score, freeze rest of team
    2) allow the three (hornets 3pt fg% bad)
    3) attack hornets weak bigs
    4) control the rebounds.

    Pretty good formula to beat the hornets.

    5) cancel linsanity. No Lin. No win.

  • Hopefully this loss will awaken the Hornets that they can’t keep starting slow with sloppy D and just expect to turn it on.
    Pistons wanted this game more and they got hot inside and out. Soon it became an avalanche.

    Let’s see how they will respond tomorrow

  • LinMad

    true, we don’t need Cliff to remind us about the pecking order. We know Kemba/Batum is the franchise player. if Lin has a good game, let us celebrate it. We’re happy for Lin. We don’t need you to ruin our celebration by saying those things. It also can kill the good vibes in the locker room.

  • heart

    Thank you Tyler Hansborough. Cliff should have sub him in earlier to guard Drummond.

  • Whitman Lam

    In both of the Hornets wins vs. Detroit, Andre Drummond was in foul trouble most of the game. In this game, Drummond barely has 1 foul.

  • LinMad

    Yep it all starts with the starters setting the example. Can’t always come back from behind.

  • JoeTeam

    Positive ….. cliff put Lin in to stop the bleeding. Cliff kept Lin in playing through his mistakes.

  • KWC

    Feels like they win games they are not supposed to win and lose games they are not supposed to lose.

  • grover chang

    I wouldn’t say they were guaranteed a win tonight. Detroit has been in top 8 all year and on a five game winning streak.

  • guest

    This post will be deleted as I’m gonna say certain posters here have integrity issues that I can’t stomach..so bye

  • LinMad

    i’m not offended by this at all.

  • KWC

    Yeah. I would really laugh though if they lose to Philly.

  • LinMad

    outcoached

  • grover chang

    Only 11 point lead.

  • LinMad

    im surprised we’re catching back up with 3rd stringers.

  • LinMad

    Pistons didn’t score in awhile lol

  • blubell

    3rd Stringersanity? Lol

  • Whitman Lam

    No, they just struggle against teams with better big men inside, Mavs, Nuggets, Detroit, all have an advantage in the paint.

  • grover chang

    5 possessions in one minute to win the game. Could we see a miracle?

  • JoeTeam

    :any chance?

  • LinMad

    nah we’ll need some 3s to win it.

  • LinMad

    Troy is clutch

  • LinMad

    19-1 run? what?

  • grover chang

    Is there someone they could hack for FTs?

  • GameWatcher

    I didn’t think Zeller and Kaminsky had a chance against more physical defenders Piston had. They will continue to have the same problem in the playoffs.

  • Alain Gervais

    3rd stringer no way

  • JoeTeam

    Wow

  • heart

    Pistons let their guard down w/ 3rd stringers. JVG’s mistakes.

  • Alain Gervais

    omg omg omg

  • Briiick

    Garbage time, no one cares.

  • blubell

    Don’t give up!

  • Whitman Lam

    Should’ve put in the 3rd stringers at the beginning of the 4th quarter.

  • grover chang

    LOL. Still fun till the end.

  • cdblue10

    Piston deserved to win,they’re a proud team this season and willed to avoid a sweep,move on to the next game.

  • blubell

    23-4 run…

  • LinMad

    Pistons must be pissed but they will still get the W

  • Alain Gervais

    what ever happen I’m proud of those guys. Shows we just lacked energy

  • LinMad

    game over

  • Whitman Lam

    Hornets bigs are just too soft in the paint. They can’t grab rebounds in traffic, finish at the rim, or protect the paint.

  • grover chang

    No more long bus rides. πŸ™‚

  • LinMad

    uhmmmmm Cliff said “Don’t foul” but why? The time is running out. He wants it to end already?

  • LinMad

    no more bad press pls

  • Whitman Lam

    This game pisses me off. NBA TV deliberately changes their TV lineup to show a Hornets game ON NATIONAL TV, because of the hype surrounding their upset defeat of the Spurs. What happens ? They get destroyed in Detroit.

  • Alain Gervais

    Well……. game is tomorrow.

  • KWC

    This reminds me of a Rox game against Mavs before when Lin was still with them. I think it was Jae Crowler who kept making 3s in garbage time and made the game super close. Don’t remember who won.

  • LinMad

    a game to forget

  • blubell

    What game?

  • LinMad

    Dear Clifford and Governor of NC,

    Regards

  • BobbyH

    Didn’t watch the game. 2-11 is bad. But was Lin given the touches and plays like the previous 3 games?

  • KL

    Detroit’s bigs were beasting. Hornets’ bigs were soft as usual. Rebounding advantage 62-42 to Detroit. Offence for Hornets was also sticky. Kemba making shots, but as usual not enough ball movement. Everyone had to force it a bit including Lin.

  • jimmyL

    Lin got touches tonight

  • Steppen03

    JL7 is just OFF tonight, period. No excuses. No shame either. Players make and players break even the very good ones like CP3. If JL7 was on then he and KW could have got this one in the bag. Still, couldn’t believe it’s just a 5 pt game in final minute.

  • Steppen03

    On NBA TV or whatevers doesn’t matters much. What matters IS: Wins against Raptors, Cavs, Spurs – Three Top Teams. What matters IS: Keep fighting, on to the next game.

    But I can agreed with you.

  • jimmyL

    Who’s reading minds now?

  • KL

    I agree that Detroit had much more intensity than anyone on the Hornets, Lin included. But I still think better ball movement could have broken through the tough Detroit interior defence.

  • Steppen03

    One of those games that “can’t win them all.” Like GS that have those terrible loses. But at least, this Pistons is quite good. Give them credits. They need this one much more than Hornets.

  • I am The Jason

    Detroit was the better team tonight. They space the floor giving them alot of uncontested shots. The Hornets were the complete opposite. Also the Pistons bigs were all over the paint pushing around the Hornets soft bigs. It was hard to watch

  • Guest

    this post proves a point that those posters have power to remove the post yet choose not to as they want to say they have integrity. nice. ;P

  • Guest

    don’t be as ppl w/o integirty usually are emotionless and thick skinned. hehe

  • MEL LIN

    just got back from tonight’s game.

  • MEL LIN

    needless to say deflated but had a good time

  • BobbyH

    Elaborate please.

  • MEL LIN

    well where do I start…..can’t cheer for him because he was missing all his shots including the 3 point attempt – airball all by himself. Pistons was making all the threes. Drummond was aggressive and our bigs can’t defend like usual.

  • MEL LIN

    Jeremy can’t drive because his shots weren’t falling so opponents are just packing the lanes simple as that.

  • HVJoy

    Lin had his right ankle wrapped before game time. Did he appear injured to you?

  • MEL LIN

    Saw some Lin fans….some with Laker’s jerseys waiting for autographs…but Jeremy didn’t sign them because he had a bad game. He was trying to make a comeback but if you’re down by a lot it’s hard to overcome. 1st quarter starters weren’t aggressive enough; they were being pushed around.

  • MEL LIN

    seems ok maybe a tad slow and no lift could be sore

  • HVJoy

    Thank you. I am glad you had a good time although our guy had an off night. I only caught the 4Q of the game. How did the team fell behind so much in 1Q (24-36)? Do you have any photos to share?

  • Maknusia

    It is what it is…you get couple of good games and one or two bad games in between. Cant really expect perfect game every single time. Lets move on.

    Hope tomorrow brings a fresh new light to the game. Go LIN!

  • JoeTeam

    You are, Jimmy.

  • JoeTeam

    Thanks, hope you had some fun in some way. It wasn’t fun to watch out here.

  • JoeTeam
  • orLinaryjoe

    Nothing to see here yesterday, moved on. O.K., will.move on today as well. Tomorrow is another day.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lol, exactly!

  • Maknusia

    My home team won…so not so disappointed! ;))

  • ra

    welcome back jeremiah…..

  • Whitman Lam

    Cliff only sticks with “his guys”, Zeller, Al, and Frank. Neither of which were effective against Detroits’ bruising big men.

  • JoeTeam

    Really? Cool to know. Drummond is a monster. I also like Whiteside, but Drummond man …

  • DX

    No English sub yet, but he mentioned doesn’t like NY’s crowded and LA’s traffic.

  • Uh-Oh

    Just a city boy
    Born and raised in south Detroit~~~~
    He took the midnight train goin anywhere~~~~

    How’s Detroit doing, the city? from the bankruptcy in 2013? A lot of houses were going very low, and some Chinese thought it’s a good time to buy those low price houses (even in some dead places where most of the houses are empty and nobody wants to live there) and believe that it will eventually going up later. If it’s true, they make good investment then. From some articles I read, they make Detroit sounds like a dead and scary city, which I don’t know if it’s true or not. But from the pictures, very dead indeed.

  • Uh-Oh

    Crowded yes. But that’s what Makes NY, NY. Lol.

    “…If I could redo it you know I will shoot the same shots and I’ll just make them”. That’s a man with confidence! I don’t know how he deals with pressure so well on and off the court. So much expectations on him from everyone. All the tweets that he gets everyday. His fans chastising his coach, his teammates. How could all these not get to him? Less thought…

  • aras

    maybe the fans should stop then…complaining about the coach the players etc etc…it only hurts Lin in the end.

  • adele

    Hope you observed that’s it’s still the usual Kemba show. What can you expect? Clifford is very consistent. He thought that Kemba ball can manage to win agains Detroit. Well well well…In Clifford’s mind? They are a hot team and they are in the playoffs and Kemba got his points for the all star push. Everything’s good in the hornets land even if they lose this game. We have to understand at this point, that Lin is not the first option in this team. And as long as they are in the playoffs contention, it will always be Kemba hero ball from now on. This hornets team will always be Kembas team. Lin can get scraps here and there to help them win, that’s all there is to it. That’s reality for this team. If you recall rockets before? He had a few great games also. But is he the star? Did you notice that after a great game, the coach will always go back to the old style? Same old Clifford-bscott-mchale style. Sigh!

  • adele

    And if I may add this, if you are a true Lin fan, please don’t be content with Clifford’s remark about Lin being valuable to hornets and he will always be a bench player. Pleaaaaaaase! And some are saying he is happy in this team. Lin chose to be happy despite the circumstances. He is a mature and responsible person. He might be duped by these manipulative people like Clifford, but he is smart and God is there to guide him. We can only hope for him to decide what’s best. And all I know that it’s best not to stay on this team and be a free agent next seasonπŸ˜‰

  • adele

    What does that tell you? It’s a coach game. Players are like chess pieces to them. Unless you are Kobe, harden, melo it’s the other way around. But most of the time, it’s the coach who manage the plays.

  • adele

    Clifford is not smart period. And he really wants Kemba to shine in national tv so so bad. They don’t care if they lose. I already have a bad feeling about this game. But as I have said, let’s move on and think about free agency. No matter how good Lin is in this team Clifford will not praise him like a star. No sir! He praised him as a bench player. Smh!

  • adele

    Well, if it’s not on national tv, they can let Lin run the show. It’s still a win win situation for them. As long as Clifford is consistent in his post game interviews about Lin as a bench player all his NBA life, they are content with that. But a very important message to Lin, please don’t be fooled again by these sweet words from a coach who clearly deceived you.

  • adele

    Don’t worry. They will only do this in national tv. They made a mistake in bringing out Linsanity. Clifford have to say those comments about Lin always in the bench and balance it with valuable😑. Cliff will use Lin to win games.

  • HVJoy

    It was a tough night for Lin. Even super star like Curry has bad games occasionally. Hope Lin will have a good game vs. Bucks tonight.

  • karen sy

    Hi mods, I have a post to adele that is waiting to be approved. I hope it can see day light soon. If I accidentally typed any prohibited words in there, please let me know and I do apologies in advance.

    done

  • Maknusia

    any key points? summary?

    Adele was pleading. Don’t think she is aggressive. But got your point, positive influence.

  • adele

    We are all entitled to our opinions. I’m cool. I don’t want to discredit what you’re saying. I’m just being consistent in what I believe in since the start of this season. Even with sws, I just don’t read the post. Simple as that. It’s my way of living a peaceful environment. Being too emotional about these things is not getting us anywhere. We are here to express our opinions. Of course with proper choice of words. You cannot be vulgar in public right? Now with differences in opinion in this site, you go your way, I go with mine. It’s not hard. You may not like what I’ve said, just don’t read it. If I get to the point where I don’t like what you said, I will not respond and if you continue with your views that differs with mine. I don’t read your comments anymore. I will only hit like and respond to views that I feel resonates with my views and opinions. I always believe that respect towards each other is the very essence of continuing the blog life here. Peace to you ‘joe what do you know’✌️

  • adele

    Thanks K. I’m being passionate in my opinion about Clifford’s coaching with Lin. Obviously he is not the best fit to coach Lin period! I don’t need to elaborate but all the people here knows and observed his coaching “prowess” wink winkπŸ˜‰

  • adele

    I don’t blame Clifford on these single games. I blame his overall coaching and personality. My stand about this coach and this team is the same. It’s not a good fit for Lins basketball strengths. No further questions your honor. Lol!

  • Joe what do you know

    No I don’t think she is aggressive and never did I suggest she was. The aggressive person metaphor/example was just used to illustrate my point on the importance of mutual respect and courtesy wins an argument rather than the use of hurtful words and belittling. If you read my post again word to word I trust you can see that. No, I was trying to express my respect to adele for her way of trying to reach out to people who might have different opinions. That’s the way I think we all should be practising.

  • adele

    Thank you Joe…your handle is too long. Lol!

  • Arsenium12 .

    Here is an excerpt from the Pablo Torre article about Lin, written late last season. Lin doesn’t want to hear the negativity. He’s a smart, disciplined person who’s focused only on what he can do to succeed. __________

    “[Lin] cannot help but tune out his dad and mom, who call from Palo Alto with concerns about his well-being. He refuses to engage friends’ complaints about Lakers coach Byron Scott giving his starting job to little-known Ronnie Price in December, then to littler-known Jordan Clarkson in January. The backup’s backup isolates himself from … loved ones …, from the people who cannot help but watch the games, read the articles, scroll down to the comments and emerge, in Lin’s words, “just super pissed off.”

    “It got to a point where I had to tell all of them, ‘Look, I appreciate you guys being on my side,'” he says. “‘But all this stuff about how upset you guys are, or how bad you think this is, I don’t want to hear any of it. I can’t carry that negativity to work.'”

    This edict originally came down during his second season in Houston, when coach Kevin McHale started pairing superstar James Harden (who needs the ball to thrive) with point guard Patrick Beverley (who doesn’t) over Lin (who does). It held up as Rockets general manager Daryl Morey … courted Carmelo Anthony, … . And it applies in LA now more than ever, … .”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I would hope for Clifford to take a seat sometimes and stop screaming at the players all the time especially Lin while trying to do his job.

  • BobbyH

    It is like asking BS not to fold his arms during the game and being relax.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s fine with BS because he doesn’t scream at his player.

  • BobbyH

    My point is it is difficult to ask people to change their habits.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Last game lose mainly because of Clifford being out coached. All night their bigs were out played by the Pistons bigs. Drummond and Bane were monster above the rim while zeller, Jefferson and Hawes were glued to the floor. Tyler should be their best matchup but we only see him in the game when it was over. When your bigs are not there as a threat, it’s hard for your guard to attack the rim.

  • grover chang

    Worse bosses characteristics: mean, incompetent, favoritism, and micromanagers.

    Cliff is at least not mean, maybe incompetent.

  • heart

    ATTENTION: @Psalm, mods, everyone, tonight’s Bucks vs Hornets game starts at 8:30pm ET not 15:30 as listed upper right corner of this page.

  • dave lam

    Let’s move on. Obviously a bad game. No need to shove the blame around Could have been bad food or poor sleep. I’m sure Jeremy will shake this game off and be ready for tonight. Goooo Lin!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    All I wanted to say is Cavs just recently lost to Brooklyn.

  • jimmyL

    u just said he had confidence
    you are way overreacting
    so what if he seems like he lose confidence he just needs to get it back
    theres nothing wrong with that
    he has the skill set to be a good 6th man in the NBA

  • jimmyL

    Tyler was brought in as a 3rd string
    he wouldn’t use him
    Hansbrough is pretty much done we know hes tough but people would rather give the minutes to youngins

  • orLinaryjoe

    Another Joe here, just of the orLinary variety, lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    2nd, 3rd or 4th wouldn’t matter, he’s in uniform isn’t he? Smart coach would max out his roster whenever necessary for the win.

  • GoJLin!

    Yes, it is a worth read on JLin – “Jeremy Lin Breaks NBA Records wherever he Goes” , the commands also nice & funny such as “Now Cliff can say all day that he played JL and not make reference to JL being played β€œout of position”… “part of this loss was on coaching and after Cliff’s dumb comments it worked to his advantage. It was like JL played down to Cliff’s assessment. Dumb and dumber” πŸ™‚ Well, after Good Friday, here comes the Ester! JLIN will be recharged with energy!

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes, just frustrating after 3 good games, starting to get media attention, talk of 6th man of the year and then this game. Feels like were back to square 1.

  • Lefon Jang

    Court case adjourned until the next game lol

  • jimmyL

    it does matter
    you dont use 3rd strings unless there are injuries to your 1st and 2nd unit

  • got it. It’s fixed now
    thanks πŸ™‚

  • CJSHYY

    Frustrate for sure but last night was so obviously it’s Kemba’s night… no one on the team played well..?! Right now playoff is the key… so just forget about it & move on. 10 more games to go.

  • JoeTeam

    I’m not sure Cliff can be consistent in the interviews because he seems to be balancing a lot more going on behind the scenes than just trying to win games. If it’s obvious to us about Lin being important, all these years, then there is either bias or criteria we don’t know about. These boards tend to lean to bias, and that’s true to me. Then we all talk about the politics and people guess at why. In the end, I’m hoping it gets clear with a next team.

    I just read an old article where Joe Lacob talked about MJ’s release. Who knew … we hear rumblings, but his is the clearest and this kind of stuff comes out later if at all:

    http://www.mercurynews.com/warriors/ci_27078013/warriors-co-owner-lacob-lists-reasons-firing-mark

  • dave lam

    It’s one bad game after 3 great ones I’ll take that for now. Considering where Lin was one year ago deep in despair with the Lakers. Things are looking better

  • JoeTeam

    No, I am not overreacting if you read this thread. I am on one point – please don’t post things about his state of mind because we don’t know what he’s thinking and last year, posts like what you wrote were finally called ‘reading his mind’. We have a history here and we’ve already gone through it with many discussions.

    Yes, I did say he is confident because you said he’s not confident. It’s another way to say I disagree, and how you felt about that is exactly what I mean.

    I went on to list was was observable.

    Last year we went over and over this kind of post and generally, we get nowhere if people want to post things about guesses as to Lin’s state of mind. All we can do is watch his play and note what’s happening to each other. People here have all kinds of experience with the game, so noting what we see is really helpful, and sometimes having some estimate of the game flow and team spirit also helps for those new to team, life action sports.

    If you get into his mind, then it’s hard to have a legit convo because nobody really knows what’s in the minds of these guys or the coach. Posting Lin has no confidence is one of the false narratives we already went through last year. We don’t know what he’s thinking. Yet, when he says in interviews he’s not confident at times, that’s just him talking genuinely, like you said. People lose confidence and get it back. That’s what he’s referring to when he talks about things off the court, that he’s humble and is working on his mind and all the other things.

    So anyway, have a good weekend, it’s no big deal.

  • I have to tip off my hat and commend @wizlin:disqus and @joewhatdoyouknow:disqus for being able to express their opinions and respect each other. This is exactly what this forum needs more and more πŸ™‚ We give respect to earn respect. And both of you demonstrated a perfect example of not putting down others’ opinion!

    Well, just to kid around, isn’t Good Friday a bad day after all and then we can celebrate on the 3rd day? Today will be a good day …

  • JoeTeam

    I agree. Yet, there isn’t a good easy response. If they went small, they are unable to have KW as pg generate ball movement. And the shots were not falling to demand space so small ball could work.

    It seems that DET game planned v well for what has been working for CHA, and Cliff could not counter-plan because he did not prepare his team/assets to adjust in-game.

  • grover chang

    Expect a rebound game after last night. Hornets are a good team and have too much professional pride to lose again. Everyone plays better, especially Lin.

  • GoJLin!

    JLIN told us at one of his recent interview to Relax, Enjoy it, believe yourself belong here :=) He said “Ups and downs are part of the NBA, ….. I asked myself many times, this is the treatment what I deserve? But then I know, if you have been insist on believing in yourself, you never know what will happen to turn the things up”. Go, JLIN Go!

  • Lefon Jang

    Cavs has already clinched playoffs so I don’t think they’re playing too hard now. They could easily squeezed 5 more minutes out of Labron in that game but they chose not to.

  • heart

    Lin has been very honest, vocal and insistent in speaking out for himself and Asian community as a whole this season!
    A: “Stand up for racial diversity and equal opportunity”; (The Oscar racial joke) “It didn’t sit well with me…”
    A: “Have fun and believe that you belong” (in the NBA). “Being the only Asian guy my whole life…”

    http://www.jlinportal.com/g73-cha-mil-game-thread/

    After a bad Hornets game where they started slow with lackadaisical defense being out-rebounded 42-62, they could not recover.

    – Despite not having a good shooting night, Jeremy Lin came in and helped with early assists to cut the lead to 8pts in the 2nd quarter but sloppy plays by Lamb and Batum gave another momentum to the Pistons
    – Only Kemba shot well with 9-18 to score 29pts but it was not enough.
    – Lin tried to drive inside but the Pistons defense packed the driving lane; he and the Hornets teammates will be extra motivated to redeem themselves against the Bucks.

    Let’s go, JLin! Let’s hope and pray JLin would not think too much and is able to get into his shooting rhythm on the court.

    It’s very easy to fall into the grass-is-greener syndrome. But the reality is there will always be imperfections in any situation. Jeremy will have a number of options this summer just as he had last off-season. He will need to pick a package of management/coaching/players and some of those parts will be negative.

    Jeremy’s best season statistically was his first year with Houston. He started and played all 82 games. Per game averages: 32.2 min, 13.4 pts., 6.1 assists, 3.0 rebounds, all under McHale as coach. Those are very good numbers. Yet how many here were happy at the end of that season? How many were complaining about management or coach or other players?

    This season is by far the best overall situation he’s enjoyed in his professional career. It’s not perfect, but perfection is extremely rare (one could argue nonexistent). There is always risk in chasing after perfection rather than working through existing imperfections.

    It’s a extremely likely that Jeremy will opt out for next season. There are so many variables for both the Hornets and Jeremy to consider. It’s premature to talk about this. I’d much rather focus on these last 10 games and the playoffs, which is exactly what Jeremy is doing.

  • HVJoy

    No objections from me. You made a good case, counselor. lol.

  • adele

    I’m not looking for perfection. I’m looking at what’s best for his skills. You need to aim high to hit the mark!

  • adele

    Lol. Yes! Nice to have some variety alright!

  • adele

    Lol!

  • adele

    He is not mean?hmmm. But what can you say about shouting and stomping of feet? What about unfair and playing politics?

  • adele

    Thanks psalm. We should promote respect here and this site would be a refreshing place to go and unwind instead of being a stressful place. I blog in the morning New York time during my breakfast. I find it very relaxing and yes amusing minus the irritants. Lol!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Adele, Hello! Lol. Let’s hope for a better Gane today!

  • Thank you for helping to show good examples πŸ™‚
    We can all use less stress here since our daily lives are so stressful already

  • adele

    True. This is one way of relaxing. Just think of watching a reality show of Lin. Fans should not get carried away. It doesn’t get us or Lin anywhere or any better. I come here to laugh and smile. It’s good for our health!😊

  • adele

    Yes. Hi third Joe that I know! Lol. Linsanity lives! Let’s get this on!

  • adele

    Hi first Joe that I know. I’m in your team alright!

  • Amen πŸ™‚ here’s to have more laughter in the next 2 months
