Hot-Shooting Jeremy Lin Fought Off Rolled Ankle and Bad Refs

  • JLin with 26pts/4asts/4reb with 9-16 FGM (3-4 3FGM) in 40min with a rolled ankle!
    And he also had to fight off Bad Refs #Linsane
  • After multiple hits, JLin still made the tough layup but still no calls from the refs who gave favorable calls to the Clippers. The Hornets lost 83-97 as only Lin and Lamb played well to score a combined 44pts (more than 50% of Hornets total points). The big men were mostly ineffective and Kemba didn’t have his good shooting today (4-16 for 10pts)
Game Summary
  • JLin started very aggressive in the 1st quarter although a bit cold with shooting 0-3 but got 1FT and 1 miss led to Zeller tip-in. He got heated in the 2nd quarter telling Clifford not to pull him out after he got 2 fouls.
  • In the 3rd quarter he really hit his strides in shooting and scoring. Then he rolled his ankle chasing Redick on D to pass to DJ. He came back and kept attacking.
  • Lin & Lamb played very well but Kemba didn’t have good shooting day. The Hornets hapless big men just couldn’t get things going at all. Lin showed he can be the floor general feeding the bigs. But the 4th quarter consists of Kemba/Lamb trying to get their own points. Not much passing. Lin tried to get teamball but teammates just tried to score w/o much ball movement. It’s a mess
  • Refs really gave home calls. Lin got really upset being hacked w/o many calls

    Post that gif on reddit. . No blood no foul…yes blood… no foul

  • pandaboy99

    This lin game really won over alot of Charlotte fans

  • JoeTeam

    fify: kemba had a normal shooting day.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah thats the old saying: no blood no foul but with lin its even with blood still no foul: spontaneous nosebleed as some here posting at the time.

  • JoeTeam

    probably the best game this year maybe? I guess there’s the 35.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    1/4 belongs to Kemba. He has 12. He continues for wanting to be hero; instead he becomes a joke.

  • I am The Jason

    That is why the losing streak continues.

  • lol, nice jab .. even for his standard, it’s pretty bad today
    usually he can make a clutch 3 after missing 2-3 shots
    4-16 shooting with 0-3 from 3s

  • Really great to hear =)

  • JoeTeam

    I was watching play by play until the last 2 mins, for about 5 mins there. I knew I missed a good game, but you know with events and all. Sounds like a great game and glad to read everyone’s updates on how it flowed.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Didn’t know that the game was on early than normal time:-( Waking up it was the final 3 minutes of 2nd qtr. Did watch the rest of the most game. Really dislike Kemba. Can’t understand why Cliff is too stubborn and not bench Kemba. If he did, there might be a win. This game is definitely on Cliff and Kemba.

  • JoeTeam

    BTW, on the upset for calls, there must be a Ghandi way to make sure refs see the protest but they cannot call a T no matter how forceful. No delay of game, no disrespectful demonstration. Maybe just a hand signal every on knows for quiet protest. Dunno, seems every time this happens, nobody is clocking it and keeping track. Steph got away with mocking a big last night, twice, when Shaun did a ball fake and broke a big’s D, so why not. Lick your fingers and mark it down in a ref scorebook.

  • Spot

    The Jeremys are a perfect combo. Too bad Kemba ruins everything

  • occupatio

    did they run curls for lin? or just gave him pick and rolls?

  • occupatio
  • Nice comment by Hornets fan stating the TRUTH


    lin dribbles to break down the D so other guys are open
    Kemba dribbles to get himself a shot

  • KL

    I watched the second half. Lin just ignored Walker and demanded the ball. He really wanted to win this game. Lin’s scoring was phenomenal. He defended with high intensity but so many calls on him for minimal contact. Also team defense was outwitted by the Clippers offense. Also Hornets bigs were not a threat at all.

  • LOL

    So the Jeremies finished 17/30 (56.7%)
    And the non-Jeremies finished 14/54 (25.9%)

  • LOL Lin broke Aldrich’s ankle there

  • aras

    Where is my man Jun -cant remember his name with the highlights !

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sometimes I wonder if Lin and CP3 switched team?

  • CJSHYY
  • Jun Liu
    Expect a bit longer as we might get 20+min highlights

    Then save it since Youtube might removed it like the last time

  • aras

    thanks psalm Jun Liu always puts out quality highlights.

  • LinMad

    After that missed foul call on Lin with the bloody nose, I was hoping refs would be a little more lenient towards Lin but instead they gave Lin some more fouls until he got 5. And it was over some small things while trying to defend Reddick.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • LinMad

    i liked that other pass to Zeller where he drew 2 defenders on him

  • CJSHYY
  • bolero
  • JoeTeam

    how do you wave a highlight?

  • JoeTeam

    If that is true, then KW is not as willful as his play indicates. He needs a leader.

  • JoeTeam

    those are the mightiest of handles in this very small game.

  • JoeTeam

    handles! Careful, too many posts like this will cause a withering of false narratives and a dearth of negative posters. If there is no Darth Vader, there is no Luke (in literature. I think life brings out enough hardships we don’t need it out here).

  • LinMad

    NICE RIVERSIDE!!!!

  • JoeTeam

    you were first ha ha.

  • Lin Win

    Another game that proves why Kemba should be on the bench.
    Lin destroyed Kemba in every aspect this game.

    Lin takes more than 10 shots and we’ve got a Linsanity show
    Walker takes more than 10 shots and we’re watching a brick show.

  • LinMad

    Lin crossing Aldrich and Lebron was clean unlike what Isiah Thomas or James Harden did to Lin this season (obvious fouls).

  • DX

    Even not on bench, at least play off the ball.

  • grover chang

    Glad they see it too. We’ve been saying that since the start of the season.

  • Lin Win

    You and I both know Kemba hardly ever plays off the ball or goes for cuts.
    I don’t think I’ve seen Kemba get a cut lay up before.

    Every player passes Kemba the ball from rebounds before Lin touches it.

  • Lin Win

    Hornets better be looking into some trades for Bigs.
    If nothing changes then we won’t be in the playoffs.
    Roberts,Al Jefferson,Hawes, Roberts and maybe Tyler needs to go.

  • LinMad

    Lets show some love for Lin by voting him for ASG. He was tough today. Rolled his ankle, got very physical and bloodied. Did not get a technical for all those bad calls on him.

    http://vote.nba.com/

  • LinMad

    Hawes too. If he can’t finish around the rim, he’s not fitting the mold.

  • Lin Win

    Yeah just edited it

  • LinMad

    I agree but Kemba needs the ball. This is why I still prefer Lin playing with the bench more. When Lin handles the ball more, everything about him improves. Kemba handles the ball more and he can have hot nights but most of his shot selections are ugly. It’s contested shots. I disagree with Roberts being PG over Lin. Lin should be PG.

  • John Focker

    I see you really want Roberts gone since you included him twice. 🙂

  • Lin Win

    That’s the problem. Lin and the bench hardly ever gets more playing time when they do well. It’s always the starters + Lin finishing and Lin doesn’t touch the ball often.

    The pattern is always starters give 10 points leads -> Bench ties the game and maybe get a 10 points lead -> Kemba comes back in and loses the lead -> Starters iso the game away

  • Briiick

    I think his volume shooting owes a lot to the management.

  • LinMad

    his dad is sponsored by Adidas too?

  • LinMad

    Hornets giving Lamb some love today. Lin and Lamb played great today.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jeremy Lin first highlights

  • 1mtoldman

    the hornets are 7-12 since signing coach Steve Clifford to a three-year contract extension Dec. 2.

    (can u say “kevin mchale”).

  • MoominFloren

    Charlotte is pretending to support Lin in AS. Everyone knows that a full name must be typed for the vote count. This is the second time they are fake supporting Lin as I can remember!

  • LinMad

  • Alain Gervais

    lins last shot before the 3 was at 6:00 minutes. thats crazy

  • LinMad

    ya he was getting iced out

  • 1mtoldman

    ice baby ice. (someone here besides me is probably old enuf to remember that phrase).

  • zxcvb

    Kemba is poisoning the team’s play. He kills ball movement (even when he’s scoting) and he destroys the defense by not putting in any effort. He aggressively moves out of the way to avoid foul trouble (his stats come first), and that forces everyone else to help and leave their man.

    Hornets will never trade Kemba and it’s going to be the downfall of the team and Clifford’s coaching tenure in Charlotte. Amazing effort by Lin on both ends tonight despite a re-sprained ankle and blatant ref cheating. Considering the light touch fouls they called on him, Lin should have had 6-8 more FTs (i.e. 3-4 more whistles).

  • Alain Gervais

    ha… im 22

  • LinJa

    my prediction of lin’s performance came true lol!

  • zxcvb

    Clifford talked about guys playing for stats instead of defending. I’m sure he meant Kemba as well as Lamb, but he has no power over Kemba. He has to play him 34+mpg or else MJ and Cho will step in.

  • Alain Gervais

    Kemba tried the kobe model which is let team ball play then take over late. please please don’t do that. even when datum is hot he shares the ball. i honestly don’t believe kemba can ever share the ball.

  • 1mtoldman

    its true you did predict it but im giving the credit to our bluebell aka bb8 and la jane for their presence and vibes inspiring in difficult circumstances of injury and spontaneous nose bleed, etc.

  • Lin Win

    Yeah He’s a selfish player that only looks for shots for himself. He’s even more selfish than Kemba

  • 1mtoldman

    u noticed that too right? that as the season has gone on walker has gone from being just a poor defender to a actively passive defender, the harden defense agressively getting out of the way of the play so as to not expend energy needed for dribbling to shoot

  • CaliUSMC

    Man can’t believe I missed this game.. but I just watched the highlights. Lin balled outta his mind!! Great game by him

  • MoominFloren

    Oh thanks my bad

  • KHuang

    And make no mistake, Kobe shared the ball PLENTY during his prime.

    Kobe had the good sense to play teamball when the team absolutely needed him to.

    Kobe would not have all those championships if he always played selfish loser isoball like Kemba Walker is currently playing.

  • KHuang

    They ALL get credit

  • 1mtoldman

    lin last 13 games (since started getting major minutes consistently for the first time this season):

    rounded numbers:

    33/16/4/4/ 47%/40%

    minutes, points, rebounds, assists, overall %, 3 point %.

  • Lin Win

    Can see Lin’s ankles are still bad at the end of the game.
    Doesn’t matter still drops 26 and outshines healthy Kemba.

  • Alain Gervais

    kobe actually has vision, much better pg vision then kemba. another thing is kemba doesn’t draw help from the defense. he gets space for his shot only. everyone is is still guarded

  • Lin Win

    No blood no foul!
    oh wait!

  • John Focker

    Kobe was able when he was willing, Kemba’s simply incapable regardless of his willingness.

    For all of Kobe’s personality shortcomings, he had talent and excellent work ethic.

  • Briiick

    PJ was the coach to make sure he plays the Triangle. After PJ was out, KB started to play losing balls.

  • Lin Win

    Yeah he only passed to players he trusted the most.
    Fisher,Shaq and Pau Gasol.

  • Linzen

    Man maybe I should skip all his game from now on. Last game I missed, he scored 35… this time 26!!! ?

  • John Focker

    You’re like @Michael 2.0!!!

  • CaliUSMC

    Really wish Lin went for the floater after he crossed Aldrich. Beautiful move though.

  • Briiick

    Let’s vote Lin for All Star !!

  • KHuang

    But that was enough on those teams to WIN TITLES.

  • KHuang

    When Phil Jackson forced him, Kobe Bryant could play very effectively and unselfishly in the triangle offense.

    Some observers believed that Kobe Bryant “broke” the triangle with his seemingly isolation play. But actually Kobe Bryant played WITHIN the triangle and was able to cut and pass well within team concepts.

    Bryant hated Jackson when Jackson was coaching him, but that didn’t stop Bryant from running the triangle effectively albeit very unhappily.

  • DanCohen

    zamm khuang, you seem to really hate kemba.

  • DanCohen

    same here.

  • DX

    Skip all please. But how you can make 35 instead 26 next time? 😉

  • Hope

    Taking a break when I heard the commentator in the hallway monitor saying lin got hit 4 times on that drive , but no foul call. Even with the bloody nose.

  • tom

    You always said Kobe was a selfish scrub lol

  • DanCohen

    man..wow..maybe I am a jinxie to the linny.

    I was watching play by play and stats when game started and he was stinking… 1/4 and stuff..

    then I was busy and stop watching play by play

    then came back to seeing play by play and stats to see how he was doing.. and he was like freaking 9 pts suddenly..but on 10 shots..

    then I kept wathing play by play and he wasn’t doing much..near the half when he was out..and then also when he was limping off the court as people at both sites was saying and the tweets.. that’s when I’m like uhoh he had 12 points at that time. I stop watching play by play to charge phone as he was not playing

    then when I came back he had like 21 points with 5 minutes left in the 4th. I was like wt-f..but still decide not to watch but watch jeremylin.net to feel what was going on.

    finally he had 26.

    similar sht happen with his 35 points…but I watche dthe end of it though.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Hope

    Lin had a great game. He was hitting most shots during practice 10 minutes before game time. This game was easy better than the Lakers opener last year.

  • John Focker

    Kobe was always selfish, and has only turned into scrub in the last three years due to injury and age.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Hope

    I felt KW should hand the ball to lin when they were leading 48-45

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • John Focker

    I was moving when Lin scored 35 points, and went through an experience similar to yours this morning (sleeping and waking up in HK). Lin didn’t do well when I watched, and did great when I looked away.

    Maybe we should stop watching live games, and send @blubell and @LAJane to every game.

  • tom

    Never
    Kemba is me>> team
    “Jeremy, I’m trying to pad my stats here”

  • DanCohen

    but I thought someone here was saying the commentators there stinks or something.

  • John Focker

    KW should hand the ball to Lin all the time.

  • John Focker

    Refs must’ve heard that and tried to take Lin out with bogus PFs.

  • Alain Gervais

    the said he wasn’t bad in first haif and it built up to omg jeremy lin after lol. Lin converting one disbeliever at a time

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOL That’s the best idea I heard today:-)

  • Briiick

    Haha, you’re finally right this time.

  • John Focker

    So you approve the fundraising for their travel and ticket allowance? LOL

  • Hope

    Hawes seemed to miss many blank range shots.

  • Linzen

    I can guarantee it if I miss the game with a certain guy name Walker. 🙂

  • KL

    I am beginning to think that Hawes needs to play with Zeller more like previously in Bench Force 1. Hawes tries to play teamball at least. Together with Jeremy they can instigate some teamball. Zeller helps with defence and rebounding. Both of them provide 2 screeners.

  • John Focker

    Hawes’ career stats are 45.7% FG and 35.2% 3PT, but was 4-23 (17.4% FG) and 2-7 (28.6% 3PT) in the last five games that he played.

    Something is very wrong with him, either physically or psychologically.

  • Hope

    Heard lots of cheers for many lin’s plays in this game. Lots of wow on many of his amazing passes. He made them look easy.

  • Linzen

    I know ?

  • Briiick

    1 vs 5

  • Hope

    The crossover wows the crowd. To bad he could not get the and1

  • 1mtoldman

    our bluebell also eye witness said he was fouled by every player on the clips on this play.

  • 1mtoldman

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Have been rather surprised to hear such a nice compliment from opp announcers to JLin lately.

  • Hope

    I felt lin got involved in most plays when he was in. Hornets might consider him be the pg the whole game next.

  • linspiredinla

    Yes, please continue to vote to show our support inspite of all the no foul calls. Can also re-tweet others tweets by clicking “quote tweet” then enter Jeremy Lin # NBAVote

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    If Cliff really wants to win any game at all, he must let JLin be pg at least 50% when he is in the game. Otherwise, forget about a win from Kemba and/or Batum ball.

  • Hope

    I thought I got to leave early when I saw he was wobbling of the floor.

  • JoeTeam

    29 today.

  • LinJa

    The difference with the bigs in this losing streak, I saw them driving to the basket instead catch and shoot. I kept saying shoot, as soon as they catch on the perimeter. Hawes and Kaminsky used to shoot from the top of the keyhole, now they catch on wings or elbow and drive. TOs happens and ends up being a dumped pass back out to kemba then ISOs again. Zellar is just not hustling as hard as before. Bigs not shooting, rebounding, defending and Kemba w/ his poor ISOs killing the hornets. If Lin touches the ball, defenses would actually shift and have mismatches to get bigs open, but they don’t shoot, they drive SMH. Bigs score when they catch under the basket..like maybe 25% of the time lol

  • heart

    Ok guys gals, didn’t get to watch. Thank God Lin had a good game but too bad Hornets lose again. Please give me update. How did Hornets lose? Hornets stats seem good except for TOs was more than Clips. Probably bad refs right?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They also said because of Lin ankle, it’s hard to guard CP3 (in the end of the game).

  • Hope

    Lin was getting hot when Robert directed the play, telling him to move further in the corner. Then he turned the ball over. It’s the kind of play that kill momentum. Should have given lin the ball when he’s hot.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Refs have never been good for Lin and as always their bigs were no threat and ineffective.

  • JoeTeam

    Yes, was it kw iso in the end say between 8 to 2 mins??

  • heart

    Thanks.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Frustrated me when I don’t know whom the PG anymore. Seem like everyone but Lin.

  • John Focker

    Huh? Kemba played 38 minutes today.

  • heart

    Thanks. (Iso KW when will you learn?)

  • LinMad

    Yes, coach needs to make it clear that Lin is the PG. It looks like some players like Lamb and even Frank want to get into the PG action but when they dribble they lose their handle quickly.

  • CaliUSMC

    I want highlights with the Hornets commentators. They seem really pumped up with all of Lins plays.

  • LinMad

    Frank and Hawes dribbling too much = bad

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If that’s true, things are changing. This is PR and it might be setting up for what we might see ahead. Jmg.

  • linspiredinla

    Did someone see or heard Lin told Cliff not to pull him out? Curious if fan at game heard it?

  • LinMad

    Do you think Lin is getting his minutes now cause Lin is actually top 8 guard for ASG and Batum is not even in top 10 anymore?

  • heart

    How’s Lin ankle? Was he ok’d after the game? So upset at the bad refs seeing him w/bloody nose again…

  • Hope

    Lin’s ankle still not 100%. He couldn’t keep up with JJ on many plays. I saw he pulled JJ waist when chasing him and called for 4 th foul.

  • 1mtoldman

    YES BLOOD, BUT STILL NO FOUL

    Lin still made the shot and no foul was called. –espn

    http://espn.go.com/nba/scoreboard/_/date/20160109

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Another important thing I’ve seen in game was Lin seemed to be like a team leader as he’s directing players where they should be on both ends. Kemba never does that, he’s too busy looking for his shots.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Don’t know how he did it but if you spent all your energy chasing JJ with your rolled ankle, you’re not supposed to score 26.

  • 1mtoldman

    well its not lin. when walker is in its walker when batum is in its batum when roberts is in its roberts. and then some of the time when lamb is in he decides he is.

    but the current rotations lin is never the designated point guard. its either walker, batum or roberts.

  • tom

    Not at all
    His all star Voting has nothing to do with his minutes

  • i’m glad that got onto the nbatv tweet…

  • oh good, i’m glad it’s circulating on both nbatv and espn…

  • steven ko

    highlights are out for those who missed the game:

  • golfhacker

    Tomorrow’s game at Denver is on national tv (NBATV). Hopefully the refs against Lin will be exposed to a nationwide audience.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When you don’t hold people accountable for their wrongdoing, They’ll never change.

  • John Focker

    Kemba as PG is as good a fit as using nail clippers as scissors. But to each his own.

  • heart

    Thanks.

  • heart

    So sick of these non-foul calls on Lin. Seeing opponents hand hitting
    Lin nose dripping w/ blood and their bodies flinging toward Lin’s
    shoulders and arms, YET ALL three refs from all angles kept standing
    still and NOT even one blowing the whistle??? NBA needs to investigate
    these refs and the reffing against Lin. This has become violent and a
    bullying game against Lin. So sick of it! A written complaint may be due
    to the NBA soon!

  • Briiick

    Court vision and PG instinct are very difficult to acquire to reach high levels.

  • John Focker

    NBA needs to investigate? NBA is probably part of the system, if it isn’t “just” the refs. A LOT of money is being gambled around pro sports, and Vegas isn’t keen on losing money. And it’s not just against Jeremy either, refs will rig games whenever it fits their (or the league’s) agenda, only that normally they are more subtle about it.

  • announcer said it. I think Stephanie Ready did

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    …and you can’t teach that either.

  • there’s website to download YT videos

  • heart

    Yep. Something is not right about this when money is involved…

  • your son’s voltaire

    normally when the refs missed obvious calls they’d make up for it. but nope. not when it’s against Lin. they continue to make horrible calls/non-calls throughout the game vs Lin

    Lin didn’t seem happy with his game tonight in his post-game interview. He said on the defensive end the team played better and harder but he has to do better on defense. He also didn’t think the team shot well. Lin wants to win. He was dissatisfied with his defense.

    Cliff said in the 2nd quarter with the 2nd unit the defense was better and the ball moved better. He said in the 2nd half, the ball didn’t move as well. He said the team had better defense tonight. He didn’t seem mad, I think he saw improvement in some things.

  • rookie75094

    It’s start from the top…Adam silver is doing his best to keep the Asian down. It’s a league wide conspiracy

  • guest

    It won’t matter against a poor team as the nuggets if the ref’s are fair or not.

  • sws94

    Lin and Lamb were kind of down in the interviews. These guys don’t like losing so that’s good to see. Lamb said they couldn’t get over the hump in the 2nd half and that they have to keep working hard. Hard work pays off.

  • CJSHYY

    He wants to win but too bad his team just played so so now. The big guys are bad….Hope they can win tomorrow.

  • sws94

    No excuses for those refs. They missed at least 3 obvious fouls. Not just one. Let’s get to the bottom of this because Lin doesn’t get calls on a lot of hard fouls and it is getting worse, not better.

  • heart

    If Lin keeps getting hits each game like this, and the hits become more violent and obvious, then there must be some kind of agenda. They want to tire Lin out, to NOT let Lin shine or WILL the win for Hornets. The truth cannot be contained. It will be revealed one day somehow…

  • sws94

    It is the bigs that are bad. Frank has hit a wall, Hawes hasn’t played well since coming back from the injury. Cody has bad hands but he rebounds ok. None of the current bigs are good strong bigs. I’ll give Hawes credit for some good pics he set for Lin.

  • sws94

    I’m sick of it too and angry. It’s outrageous.

  • sws94

    These guys are incompetent. Lin could get hurt if these guys don’t call obvious fouls. Not tonight but sometimes there are borderline flagrant fouls against Lin that aren’t called. Kobe’s was a flagrant from when they played the Lakers.

  • Briiick

    It takes a few games with KW under short leash to rebuild team morale and team work, whether the management allows Cliff to do so is another question.

  • CJSHYY

    I think there is no need for Kemba to pad his stats for ASG. Maybe they will start to play more team ball now?!

  • blubell

  • sws94

    With Kemba off the court, and Roberts, it’s good team ball. When Batum returns, team ball is still pretty good.

  • blubell
  • LAJane

    Here are a couple of pix of Lin holding squats to stretch out his rolled ankle. The way he just dropped dead to his knees in the middle of the court was a heart-stopper in person. I have no idea how he got that to where he could keep playing. Dragon.

    The seats were truly vertigo-making, but still got a great view of the action. BIG THANKS to JAKEY for the gift!!!! Woot woot!

    I just don’t know basketball well enough to give the kind of blow-by-blow insights that would be really interesting. Quick skim through the comments and it looks like you guys have pretty well said it all anyway.

    Shoot-around: Kaminsky was out on the floor early, diligently practicing shots. Jeremy mostly practiced 3s, which all went in. Bluebell was sorry there was no dunk :). Clips starting intro involved big sound, big lighting drama, and flames bursting from both backboards so the Hornets intro kind of disappeared. All I remember is the announcer trying to drum up some competitive excitement by calling Kemba one of the 10 best point guards in the league. (rolls eyes)

    Did anybody on the Clips hear that? Because the only guy they seemed to focus on was Lin. He got the first Hornets points in the game and from then on it was brutal. Redick and he were just a slug-fest all night. Slug Fest. Taking no chances, they often tried to trap him fighting past not one screen but two. Double teamed on offense AND defense…at least it seemed to me. Same story when Crawford was on him. Bluebell and I agreed we didn’t quite see that amount of energy and aggression spent on containing other Hornets. Jeremy is not “pesky”. He is strong and relentless. For whatever reason – not prepared for his intensity, or just losing temper with his effectiveness – they seemed very notably intent on trying to break him by whatever means. Bloodied – yes – but unbowed, and high score on his side. The Clips fan family behind us was commenting on what a good player Jeremy is – “Works really hard”. [Also said “good-looking” :)]

    Bluebell commented 3rd Q that Kemba just didn’t seem to be much of a presence in this game. Yes he bricked, but watching him in person, his energy didn’t seem to bring any notable factor either way. Sort of an oddly non-presence. The few moments Jeremy played point always resulted in something happening, but the rest of it seemed ineffective. In person, Roberts as point seemed even more pointless than on TV. Of course at the end, as you all saw, everybody began throwing up stat-hopeful junk.

    Still, it was great to see Jeremy play in person. Their announcer seemed so very low key on crediting visiting team baskets. I couldn’t help myself. Every time Jeremy scored I had to step it up by hollering LLLLIIIIIINNNN. Made Bluebell laugh. The older dad in the family behind me got a big kick out of it, and it seemed to get them paying more attention to Lin too. Actually, the crowd generally seemed friendly towards him. Some of his goals got some nice applause, and you could almost have heard a pin drop when he fell due to the rolled ankle and couldn’t move for a minute.

    My first basketball game in person. Feeling the energy changes what you see. Bluebell and I were wondering if we were gonna have to start saving up for another fix 🙂

  • Uh-Oh

    That sexy squat….
    Good pics catch. Thanks.

  • your son’s voltaire

    well, i would have to admit the league wouldn’t be too happy if the only Asian guy who is playing is a top 5 player. they probably want to keep it a black dominate league since black kids are their main target group

  • steven ko

    what’s with Wes Johnson? I thought he and Lin are fam (what up fam)? he better buy dinner for Jeremy after that hit. Jeremy took care of him last season :

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QtCCqSJKb2U

  • it looked like an accident to me, not like what kobe did.

  • tom

    That wasnt intentional dont blame Wes for trying to block the shot

  • blubell

    Great write up! You were a wonderful cheerleader screaming ‘LIIINNNNNN’ every time he scored 🙂 And yes a great big thank you to @jakey!

  • David Kim
  • LAJane

    P.S. I bothered me that in his post-game interview Jeremy commented the defense was weak and he included himself in that. NO WAY.

  • Acbc

    Lin will always do that, no matter how well he plays. He never blames anyone else but himself. It’s his own way to being a leader.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Don’t think Johnson did it on purpose.

  • blubell

    No one could match Jeremy’s defensive intensity. Even the Clippers fan behind us who didn’t know anything about basketball said Jeremy works really hard. They were cheering whenever Jeremy scored 🙂

  • LAJane

    I know. But…grrrrr. He was an animal out there tonight. Handles? At one point Redick was leaning on him and grabbing like he was trying to lift a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Jeremy held him off with his hip and one arm while handling the ball with the other. How do you get better than that? (swoons :))

  • LOL self-flagrant foul!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s leadership from him.

  • heart

    Lance slaps own face…The length he goes to get notice…

  • Acbc

    Lol

  • Briiick

    LMAO, this is wrestling !

  • KHuang

    I do.

    I hate ALL selfish iso defenseless low efficiency loserball players who refuse to play teamball.

    I would prefer Kemba Walker to be a solid two way unselfish teamball All Star PG running plays properly. Walker has more than enough game to play like that, like we saw in the Toronto game.

  • KHuang

    He was – but even selfish scrubs can be bullied into playing teamball.

  • KHuang

    If there is one guy on the team that deserves to shoot more, it’s Lamb.

  • KHuang

    Before every game, the NBA sends its representatives to meet with the refs.

    The NBA rep then TELLS the refs which team is going to win and which players to abuse.

  • KHuang

    The kind of vision and innate leadership that Lin does are born, not acquired.

  • sws94

    Thank you so much! Excited that you got to see Lin play well.

  • Briiick

    Lin has to repair the damage done by KW’s volume shooting and no defense. KW has successfully destroyed the team morale and team defense during those projected losing games. Cliff tried to reverse that by talking, it didn’t work. Now Cliff has to increase Lin’s role as his last resort, and Lin is trying to motivate his teammates by his own example.

  • sws94

    It’s ok actually. Shows the high standards he has for himself.

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    I’ll write the letter but i need data. If someone can compile the data for me, i will draft the letter. I’m an attorney, and this is right up my alley.

    Sounds like it will be fun to go together so we can hear you holler, “LIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNN!” LOL
    Great for Jakey to give you tix

    We were also so worried when JLin fell without much contact.
    Glad u and @disqus_3ojL2FVU9I:disqus get to watch great JLin game 😀

  • BobbyH

    I think my 5-11 prediction for Hornets January games could be too optimistic. Hornets is winless in January.

    Hope this game wake up some people in Hornets circle.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    There are couple clips that JLin was fouled by Johnson and hence the nosebled but didn’t get call. Another great one was KB had fragrant 1 but didn’t get one. Too many that I’ve seen that should get called but didn’t plus more phantom calls on JLin.

  • Acbc

    How many shades of grey is that? Lol

  • DX

    Any news about Lin’s ankle? Is he able to play tomorrow?

  • heart

    Thanks so much. That’s even better. Yes. We need to put a call out to all data experts and those who have clear Video clips send to you, such as recurring pattern of non-foul calls from which games, time, plays, ref #s, effect of the outcome, etc. I will try but the more help the better.

  • CJSHYY

    I think he will play.

  • james brown

    Jeremy that i know will never exchange having better stats with winning..that’s why he’s a bit down because they lost the game even though he performed well under the circumstances. Good to acknowledge his own demeanor than throwing his co teammates under their bus!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Best is to know midday tomorrow.

  • blubell

    I took couple of pics where Jeremy was rotating his ankles and trying to walk it off during time out. Our hearts stopped for a moment when Jeremy injured his ankle 🙁 But very glad that it wasn’t anything serious. He is such a warrior!

    LAJane said pretty much everything that I wanted to say. I’ll just add that the few times Jeremy played PG was very fun to watch. He was a leader out there directing plays. Great court awareness as he was aware of where everyone was and understood the flow of the game. He would always try to set up his teammate first instead of looking for his own shots. Kemba and Roberts on the other hand looked like they were always looking for their own shots, especially Roberts who looked a bit confused out there as PG. Not a leader.

    Blown assists. *sigh*. So frustrating to watch. Jeremy was noticeably disappointed with couple of the blown assists but was very happy (did a mini fist pump lol) when Hawes finally converted 🙂

    The refs were tolerable in the first half but lots of smh moments in the second half, especially where Jeremy was fouled by multiple defenders but no call. Jeremy was frustrated and complained to the refs and rightly so. He even pointed out his bloody nose to one of the refs.

    Too bad that Hornets lost but happy that Jeremy played well on both ends and we witnessed his second best scoring game of the season 🙂

  • tom

  • kauaiblue

  • kauaiblue

    Lol

  • sws94

    Depends on how it is in the morning when he wakes up. Sometimes after turning it it swells overnight.

  • blubell
  • kauaiblue

    Thats very damaging and embarrassing for the nba… they will improve on this if they r smart… but…

  • kauaiblue

    Thank you!!

  • tom

    Does Lin ever play PG at all?
    I appreciate Clifford’s playing Lin big minutes but you gotta let Lin run the offence when he’s in with Roberts.

    Another reason why Lin might not wanna stick around next year: Clueless coach

    I don’t want him to go to the SIxers because they are so bad and he most likely would have to share the play making duty with Ish Smith.

    Nets are awful too Not sure Lin would do well with their players.

    Perhaps the Grizzlies if Conley doesn’t sign back(very unlikely)
    Heat if Wade retires
    Bulls if Rose is gone(Jimmy Butler will be the first option)
    RocketsOKC for the 6th man role
    Pacers can use a PG too
    Jazz maybe? they dont seem to trust any of their guards

  • kauaiblue

    If you write something that mutilple people could copy and sign in their own name, we could send more letters!

  • heart

    Attention All Lin Fans: We need data compilation (game, time, non-foul calls, ref#s, effect of non-calls) and video clips of BLATANT non-foul calls on Lin starting today and going back as far as you can to show pattern of non-foul calls. Please send to @parentofan8thgrader. She’s an attorney and she has offered to draft a letter to the NBA, but she needs data.

  • tom

    That happens to everyone
    Only stars get all the calls
    If you ain’t a star, refs will swallow some of the calls so they can go home early

  • your son’s voltaire

    really? ronnie price gets better calls than Lin. but then again, he’s the headofsnake and a true MVP

  • LinMad

    just look at all the gifs on Twitter of Lin getting fouled this season. Especially the ones by Isiah, Harden and Kobe. And the ones today. Also previous games.

  • kauaiblue

    Thanks!

  • tom

    Maybe because we are too focused on Lin
    Everything just seems unfair

  • LinMad

    These refs work for the Italian mob. NBA is afraid.

  • LinMad

    Lin fans are always right. Just watch…2 years from now many NBA refs will be busted for working for the Italian mob. Byron Scott will be fired soon just like McHale.

  • MorlockO

    Can you prove that?

  • GoJLin!

    Yes, I agree, it has become violent and a bullying game against Lin more and more; hope this action will help JLin to get a chance to have some equal ref treatment at NBA. I understand probably not going to turn things around immediately, but just like when some of Lin fans send in the evidence clip, sometimes NBA did make the correction on his stat. No action, no result!

  • heart

    The Truth will prevail somehow…

  • your son’s voltaire

    speak for yourself, i watch a lot of NBA games not just the ones Lin plays in

  • TTNN

    can’t help it, I post this in the At-the-hive post game thread.

    Seriously, Kemba need to change his ball dominant playing style a little bit

    http://i277.photobucket.com/albums/kk77/menyanhuanghun/jlin/2015%20Hornets/Capture_zpsnhrj1erb.jpg~original

    For this game, he played 38 min, hold onto the ball for 7min, passed 63 times and only 5 of them were meant for his teammates to shoot.

    Brian Roberts, played only 1/4 of the min, out of 17 passes, he got 4 potential assist, and 1 secondary assist out of it.

    Kemba just hold the ball too long, out of total 18.4 min of the time of possession of the whole team, Kemba hold onto it for 7 min. That’s a lot of time.

    The thing is, holding on to the ball for that long takes a lot of energy, and it is not that easy to keep defensive intensity when you spend that much energy in the offensive end.

    http://stats.nba.com/tracking/#!/player/speed/?CF=TEAM_ABBREVIATION*E*cha&sort=AVG_SPEED_DEF&dir=1&Season=2015-16&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&LastNGames=1

    Follow this link to look at this game defensive distance player covered, (Avg Speed Def, which is the (defensive distance covered)/(playtime) in mile/hr, which is a good indication on how active a player are in the defensive side), and Kemba is second last in his defensive speed on this team, only better than our center in Hawes. (much less compare to Lin who is playing on a bad ankle.) I hope he could spend less energy in the offensive side, and spread that to defense.

    I might sound like a Kemba hater, but for Hornets to have any chance to get into play off, our star player need to lead the way and set the tone though.

  • guest

    Need to also include similar plays that were called for fouls for the other team but not Jeremy, in the same game if possible.

  • your son’s voltaire

    haha. and Lin fans are always being called “crazy” by haters and bandwagon fans even after proving them wrong over and over. and over..

  • tom

    I do too and I see a lot of non foul calls
    not just lin

  • tom

    Maybe you should follow MCW a little bit

  • KL

    Us Lin fans can really hold our heads up proudly.

    He was “overrated” ” flash in the pan” “can’t go left” “turnover prone” ” backup player” with “no point guard instincts”.

    The league has moved on to tentative or backhanded compliments “he is playing well THIS GAME” “solid player” “great bench player” “belongs in the NBA”.

    Now people are accepting that he is a good player who works hard at both ends at the very least.

    One day he will be recognised for the great player that he is, and a pioneer who stared down a corrupt system and prejudice and refused to yield. We can all be proud indeed of being on this journey with him.

  • KHuang

    SIC EM

  • TTNN

    Having problem to add the table. attach here

  • your son’s voltaire

    non-calls are a part of the NBA, but when it happens to a player throughout his career like in Lin’s case, then it’s a whole different thing. you obviously haven’t been following

  • KHuang

    All NBA refs come from a little known NCAA conference in the Southwest.

    It’s a closed corrupt system that is ruining the league.

    But the NBA LIKES their corrupt refs because the NBA can CONTROL those crooked refs.

  • MorlockO

    Then if you follow MCW and Lin, how much non calls that he get per game compared to Lin?

  • TTNN

    translate please

  • LinMad

    we have no bigs on this team that can do that at that speed

  • KHuang

    The NBA is ORDERING this bloody vendetta against Lin.

    Every morning before the games, the NBA sends a representative to meet with the refs. The rep then TELLS the refs who to target with unfair calls.

  • guest

    I’m glad Jeremy gets to at least play for a team whose commentator is Dell Curry. Very fair and positive assessments of his game. Very different from the last two teams.

  • KHuang

    NO.

    In my decades of watching the NBA, no single player has even come close to being constantly targeted by refs as Lin.

  • KHuang

    Pfft, the mere mention of that indicates that he is indeed watching.

    Anybody who follows nonLin games is APPALLED by the endless violence and cheating done against Lin.

  • LinMad

    she’s an intern for NBA. Is the NBA trying to bring in more Asians?

  • KHuang

    Clearly you don’t watch nonLin games enough if you are asking US for the answer to that question.

  • LinMad

    i hope they treat Lin unfairly just so more people can be outraged at the officiating.

  • tom

    I have and its not just Lin you obviously havent watched a lot of games outside of Lin or paid attention to other role players

  • your son’s voltaire

    i believe it’s a rhetorical question, KHuang

  • KHuang

    No, Lin no longer plays PG for the Hornets.

    Actually, I think Lin and Ish Smith would be a very good backcourt. Ish Smith would have to resist the urge to shoot on every possession when Lin siphons defenses away from him, though.

    Nets would be FABULOUS for Lin. He’d take those guys and push them deep into the playoffs, provided that Lionel Hollins let Lin do that.

    No team with Lin stays bad for long, provided that the fake stars on the team don’t go rogue in rebellion against Lin.

  • your son’s voltaire

    do you REALLY think Lin gets on average fair calls compared to other NBA players? honestly

  • KHuang

    OOPS, my bad.

    MorlockO’s posts were too sophisticated for me to follow!

    I stand corrected.

  • tom

    I’ll tell you this
    I do get the most irritated with refs non calls when I watch Lin and Yao although Yao does get star treatments here and there

  • tom

    both a lot

  • KHuang

    Translation:

    “KILL THE LIN HATERS”.

  • KHuang

    I seriously doubt that NBA front offices will offer Lin a contract next season, no matter how well Lin plays.

    Lin being Asian American is just too much racial progressiveness for NBA front offices to handle.

    I also believe that Charlotte will seek strongly to replace Lin next season via draft or free agency, even if Lin opts in.

  • LinMad

    Next time Jeremy gets bloodied and the refs refuse to blow the whistle, Lin should just wipe the blood on the refs shirt and get suspended. At least he will get his message through and it will go viral.

  • TTNN

    oh, thanks!

  • KHuang

    Let’s not forget how Jeff Van Gundy got fined $100,000 for telling the media that he overheard NBA refs discussing how they’d deliberately hit Yao with phantom calls in order to change the playoff seeding.

  • LinMad

    #NBAaintREADY

  • tom

    IF he could resist, thats a big IF

    Not sold on Hollins and Joe Johnson needs to go or get benched

    Stars will always try to get theirs first before they decide to help the team win

    I’d want Lin to yell at players who play selfish and put them in their place

  • KL

    I hope what you say does not happen. And frankly I would not be surprised if Lin is finally recognised years later, after his playing years. That is how sad this system seems to me.

  • sws94

    The problem is nobody leaks. Lamb can do that, Batum even although he isn’t that fast a runner. I think even Marv can do that. Wesley is very athletic so he had the speed and hops to make it look effortless but there are some guys that, if they got out and ran, could get passes. Cody today ran and Lin rewarded him.

  • tom

    No, thats stupid and so unneccesary
    That just makes Lin crazy, psycho
    One must be mentally ill to do such thing

    Lin gets nothing postive from it

  • KHuang

    I wanted Lin to SCREAM AT THE REFS until he got a technical foul.

    That would have been reported in the national media, and the NBA would actually have rescinded Lin’s foul in the ensuring Linbarrassment.

    Lin standing up to the refs with a tech would cause the national media to TAUNT the NBA’s refs, and that taunting would force NBA refs to be more honest due to increased scrutiny.

  • tom

    I believe in my man Cho

  • KHuang

    Disagree.

    Lin would be CELEBRATED by the media if he did that.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    For my ankle that I have suffered from playing bb days and I sprained few times per year, I didn’t have much issues after I had another bad sprain and fell down hard last week. Initially I had so much pain that I was barely to stand up and put weight on it. Don’t even talk about walking. After a while, it had so issue and I didn’t have any swell or pain at all. Hopefully it’s true in JLin’s case.

  • LinMad

    Everyone knows Lin is a nice guy. So if he did that, it will be funny.

  • tom

    Rubbing his blood on people? no thats crazy
    I agreed he needs to get mad and yell at the refs, trash talk and all
    but thats just crazy

  • tom

    not funny unless you’re mentally ill

  • your son’s voltaire

    or he can just pat the ref’s butt with the bloody hands. act like he didn’t know it was bloody

  • LinMad

    how is that mentally ill? It’s just standing up for yourself.

  • KHuang

    You mean the same GM that only offered $4 million over two seasons to Lin?

    Cho’s the man for signing Lin, but that $2 million player option next year ain’t gonna fly for a double figure scorer who’s worthy of the MAX by the numbers.

  • LinMad
  • tom

    Yep they do
    AI was one of them and they favored Kobe
    AI was way more talented than Kobe both played selfish ball but somehow Kobe was a hero and AI was a villian

  • sws94

    Hopefully. Thanks.

  • KHuang

    Bashing Kemba Walker’s bad play then implies that Lin deserves to start which then bashes the haters that say that Lin isn’t good enough to even be in the NBA.

  • TTNN

    he just got one tech couple of games ago though, not helping

  • KHuang

    Allen Iverson got away with so much illegal palming and travelling, he was literally a walking rules violation.

    And Kobe? That man pushed and cheated and elbowed like he was in a MMA ring as opposed to a basketball court.

  • your son’s voltaire

    what the.. they’re both wishing to be on the Warriors squad lol

  • tom

    Cho snatched him for cheap Ill give him credit for that
    I think he’ll offer Lin close to 10-12 mil next year
    Lin has been a double figure scorer for 5 consecutive years on different teams and in different roles
    You have to be pretty good to do that and he got most of it when game mattered

  • tom

    rubbing blood on people thats insane

  • KHuang

    Yeah, but THIS FOUL would’ve gotten Lin national news attention had he gone technical.

  • sws94

    Not in his character and he won’t. Him bleeding and going to the cut corner serves a big message. The let coach go ballistic. If Lin touches a ref he gets suspension and fines. And he’d never stop hearing from Mama Lin. Can’t happen.

  • KHuang

    Drawing blood by lying cheating calls is INSANER

  • heart

    That’s a leadership trait. Lin leads by example. He always evaluates himself first after carrying out a mission. He takes the blame for the team when the outcome is bad and gives credit to the team when the outcome is good. In doing so, he hopes his action would inspire team unity, and team members who follow his example would also examine their own actions too.

  • KHuang

    Totally true as usual –

    but grandstanding NBA refs WORKS.

  • bolero
  • sws94

    Psycho T can fill that role. Shame that BB doesn’t have enforcers like hockey does. Metta World Peace is a dying breed. Cousins tries, but he’s not quite the same.

  • KHuang

    No blood no foul.

    That is the age old NBA mantra with refs.

    Since the foul didn’t exist in the eyes of the refs, Lin rubbing his hands on the refs or other players means that there’s no blood to rub.

  • TTNN

    I do think Hornets fans know that Kemba is a ball hog, just don’t know he is such a bad ball hog. The worst thing is, Kemba stop playing defense……

  • blubell

  • KHuang

    Metta World Peace is a dying breed ever since that brutal Pistons fight for which he got suspended for nearly an entire season but somehow escaped jail time.

  • heart

    True. But let’s complain the BLATANT ones that could injure Lin first. If you have the others start compiling then send to her too–Data of the pattern of non-foul calls and phantom fouls.

  • KHuang

    I think Cho’s gonna draft a PG to replace Lin.

    Or Cho is going to go after a less performing more expensive backup PG to replace Lin with.

    Lin is just a RENTAL – and Cho as a LIN FAN might look to force Lin off this sinking Hornets team into a better situation where Lin can start and play teamball.

  • sws94

    Problem with an enforcer is they need to just enforce for the purpose. MTW has strong anger-management issues. So he became a menace.

  • KHuang

    Lin is too ahead of his time in race relations.

  • your son’s voltaire

    Lin buys his former teammates thousands of $ headphones and here he is using a cheapo iphone headphone

  • sws94

    It has national news attention.

  • DX

    Agree, but can be more smart, like pretend dizzy and hold a ref. Haha….

  • your son’s voltaire

    no worries. refs didn’t even see the foul so naturally, they don’t see blood

  • tom

    At least we agree Cho is a Lin fan lol

    The chances of winning are still greater than Lin being officiated fairly.

  • Uh-Oh

    It’s from Apple! These headphones are way more comfortable on the ears than the thousands one. Lin is smart to know. He gave them these because he wants to damage their ears. Ok. I joke. iPhone headphones are not bad.

    The expectation value of a $2 ticket I believe was around $1. If you want to play “correct” lottery like playing correct BB, wait til the jackpot reaches $1.6 billion.

  • Whitman Lam

    Clippers cheat their way to victory. Lots of fouling without calls, getting freebie free throws, and setting moving screens. When Deandre Jordan sets a pick he sticks his legs WAY OUT, almost like he’s doing the splits, so that the defender either trips on his foot or has to run out a lot farther to avoid tripping. How is that even legal ???

  • Whitman Lam

    It didn’t work in that OKC Thunder game, why would it work now ??

  • occupatio

    wow. where did JFV say that? during a game? or an interview?

  • sport

    Actually I remember seeing Lebron get a bloody nose hit with no foul call which was plan ridiculous. But Lin seems to get it more often.

  • JoeTeam

    ugh you beat me to it.

  • CaliUSMC

    Haha I know right. I remember last year some football player spent like six figures. lol

  • LinLinLin

    Then the team has to decide to not pass the rock to Kemba and just play teamball led by Lin!

  • blubell

    It was great! Had lot of fun with LAJane. My ears are ringing from LAJane yelling LIIIINNNNN every time he scored… and he scored a lot today! LOL.

  • LAJane

    Holy cow! We thought he’d be icing his ankle so we didn’t wait very long after the game. Lesson – never underestimate Lin’s generosity with his fans. The greatest.

  • LinLinLin

    Cho and Clifford conspired to bluff Lin into thinking that he would be allowed to play his game and thus signing for cheap. Both Cho and Clifford are unscrupulous liers as they knew it too well that Kemba won’t change his hero, isoball and won’t allow Lin to steal his thunder.
    I won’t say Cho is the man but I’d say he’s a conman, only a little nicer than Morey who asks his clutch and beat writers to dis Lin.

  • blubell

    I think this is pregame. Look at his hair.

  • sport

    Glad Lin played tooth and nail to get his and try to win but too bad for those cheating refs. I believe Lin would’ve willed his team to a win if he was 100% healthy.

  • your son’s voltaire

    well, tax takes half, and if the other half goes to the forum members, i’d be left with nil.. which is what my ticket is worth anyways. LOL

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    At 6:53, Lin pulled up a Curry-like nasty cross over which send a clipper tumbling into the ground…That should make it into Shaq a fool…

    Ok. Me too.

    I’m for you, you can keep your winnings because you took the risk!

  • I meant both of u with JLin =D

  • too many! hehe

  • JoeTeam

    A day’s hope or tickle is sometimes worth the dosh.

  • JoeTeam

    Well, I finally got to sit down by myself after a full day. Nice highlights, nice posts, so glad JLin got to play well.

    1. Were Clips that good or did CHA just not play well outside of Lin?
    2. Did Kemba try to take over at the endgame and ruin the run-up, or were they hopeless outmatched?

    I saw Hawes miss … if Zeller and Hawes missed a lot outside of the Lin highlights, then I understand that spread.

    Just curious – I’m looking forward to a game where Lin’s good play leads to a team win. This is a good first step, and I hope we see more if JLin is not traded. That is, with over half the games left, can they tweak this so they have a playoff chance?

  • blubell

    Haha. We arrived 1h15m before the game and saw the shootaround without Jeremy. I guess he was out there earlier signing autographs and what not. It looks like we missed it 🙁

  • LAJane

    Smart. I think you’re right. Whew…nothing lost 🙂

  • blubell

    We should arrive earlier next time! It was probably right before the shootaround began and we arrived during.

  • sport

    I watched the highlights and there were so many missed easy assists (point blank) baskets by the bigs it’s just sad!! At times like that I truly miss Ed Davis and even Asik who was a double double machine every game with Lin feeding him.

    After the game, Wesley Johnson asked JLin, “So I still get to be in your next YouTube vid right?” Lin replied, “You’ve changed bro!”

  • LinMad
  • LinMad

    I think NBA as a major sport wants Lin to succeed but there are barriers in the way that management is having a hard time to adjust to like old fashion coaches, biased/racist referees, players who are divas, etc. Seriously, Lin is only making $2M a year yet players still want to prove that they can beat that Asian guy. If NBA wants to tap into the Asian market, they need to start treating Lin like a superstar. Harden, Lebron, Kobe, etc. get special treatment from refs. It’s the complete opposite for Lin. I don’t even care if Lin isn’t treated like superstar, he just needs fair treatment from the refs. Those no calls and foul calls cause Lin barely touched Reddick was outrageous. It’s been happening a regularly this season. It feels like a regular occurrence. And there is no reason for it either. Lin is a nice guy, doesn’t cuss at refs, but refs treat him like he’s the most hated player on the court. I feel like the NBA needs to start an investigation on these referees. Are they working for the mob? Did other players bribe them? Even at home, it doesn’t look like Hornets get home court advantage like other teams do.

  • spiderman

    My view is more pessimistic; haters and bigots will hate no matter how well Lin plays.

    But Lin will move on and continue to do his thing.

  • sport

    If they did they would reel in their refs already and give Lin those foul calls to protect him! The NBA also hyped Lebron so much about his premature Legacy and now they look like fools. Sorry but 2 rings and changing teams before that doesn’t equal Legacy. A Legacy is like MJ and Kobe getting multiple rings with the same team and that window is already closing on him. That is exactly why I don’t think Steph Curry will GSW to create his Legacy with 3 peat and more! GSW just have to be ready to fork over the biggest Max contract when the time comes since he’s underpaid right now!

  • Ulysses Modder

    Lin play as played in Linsanity.
    Look to face of Pierce in the bench of Clippers in every move of Lin, He did not believe.

  • your son’s voltaire

    if that was harden, he’d get 4 foul calls on that one play. step to the line to shoot 8 free throws

  • a guest

    I’ll pray hard for you, Yao

  • a guest

    People say these divas, biased/racist refs have superiority complex but no, i say they feel super-inferior when they see Lin, Harvard kid balling. They can’t differentiate the feelings but the hatred and jealousy are too strong for them not to discriminate, humiliate and “retaliate”!

  • Teak

    and i’d add harden’s spendings in night clubs help the nba eco system–drugs, alcohol, women, clubbing, funky fashion…you name it

  • KL

    The NBA must have a good medical plan to constantly remove whistles which the refs keep swallowing.

  • sport

    Or just use Lin to promote NBA in China for the money. If they legitimately wanted Lin to succeed they would’ve easily put pressure in treating him fairly and starting him! Since NBA is pushing 76ers to change with MDA having some power maybe Lin will finally be allowed to start and lead his own team there!

  • PETE B

    HEY LIN FAN
    HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED CHARGING WITH HIS NOSE!! A flagrant nose to the hand next time lin should be suspended for attacking nba players with his nose

  • John Focker

    It’s already happened. Lin was called for a foul when Harden’s elbow hit Jeremy’s nose. Very likely the first-ever nose-to-elbow foul in the NBA. Also, Lin got three fouls in under 50 sec. True story.

  • nadal27

    why do people say that jeremy was mistreated and bashed by Houston. I understand that Kevin Mchale was not a big fan of his, but watching some of his old games, it seemed like the commentators were always rooting for him. For example, whenever he had a good game, the commentators always seemed to praise jlin. When Lin got his first triple double, they all cheered and seemed very happy for him.

  • golfhacker

    That was Batum. I was watching the game and said to myself that I was surprised to see that Batum would walk out to the court to see if Jeremy was ok because he always seems to ignore Jeremy when they’re playing!

  • golfhacker

    But in his own way, he would sound stupid.

  • golfhacker

    I heard the ref told Jeremy that he punched himself in the face. jk.

    re: la. jane featured post above
    1. yer a good writer (and bluebell says a good cheerleader, for lin)
    2. yeah i was the first (tho someone else stole the idea later) to suggest the presence of “our bluebell” and yourself were the impetus for the big lin game despite tremendous obstacles (bad refs, rerolled ankle, “spontaneous” nose bleed and the kind of attention you mention on both sides of the ball). and that the best way to keep producing big lin games was for you two spies to go to every game!
    3. well bluebell said you guys would be in the “nose-bleed” seats but it was lin that got the bloody nose
    4. how did you and “our bluebell” work out as sugar and spice tag team combo for the future?
    5. thanks for the big report
    6. you probably saw lin at the most individually dominant he’s been offensively this season cause in the 30+ point ot win walker and others were more equally primary, here lamb scored some but was not a creator at lins level, tho the hornets own broadcast (evidently or at least it was reported here) gave the best player award for the game to lamb both espn and yahoo gave it to lin
    7. at least now i hope bluebell knows how to get into staples and will have all her own tips for next time.

    we got faith (17) hope (with a star now) and heart here.

    what else do you need?

  • 1mtoldman

    surgeons on call.

  • 1mtoldman

    uh well we as lin fans see it that way but yer near the end touching on what many fans have been saying (fans of other teams/players) for a long time and what now some actual sports writers are suggesting: that nba refs are being paid to “throw” the games to the superstars and even (yes) to affect the point spreads.

    its interesting because silver (new commish) has proposed getting the nba in on some cut of gambling on games since its going on (or at least thats how i understand what he said).

    the opposite of baseball where previous scandals have made sport highly sensitive to any taint of “throwing” or fixing of games or adjustments to odds.

  • 1mtoldman

    i beleive it was a nose to harden too; obviously a pattern here.

  • 1mtoldman

    whats the deal here with all the emphasis on powerball?

  • 1mtoldman

    johnson taped lin on the side when he (johnson) first entered the game at the ft line next to lin.

    but later he gave lin a hard foul. well clips are known as the dirtiest and most hated team in the league.

    notice also how clips complain on every call against them. esp. paul and rivers (coach)–but reddick seems to be subbing for the supreme complainer griffin in his abscene as well.

  • 1mtoldman

    bluebell (who was there) said at the time that he got fouled by all 5 players on the other team here. (i think).

  • 1mtoldman

    Stranger than fiction.

  • John Focker

    Yeah, made from rice paper.

  • K. P. Chan

    Lin is always humble and he always holds himself accountable.
    I didn’t see the post-game interview but I will look for it today.

    When he made those comments, was he referring to the initial difficulties guarding J.J. Redick? He was “assigned” to J.J., but what happened was hardly Lin’s fault. J.J. played with multiple screens set for him at will, and the Hornets as a team didn’t figure out how to defend against the screens, or to switch correctly when J.J. came off them. It was the lack of team defense and it was on the coach not being able to figure out the adjustments.

    Throughout the game, Lin played defense with all his might and his heart, even after re-injuring his ankle.

  • aras

    It was Batum. It looked like he respected Lin as a player and was legit concerned about his injury. great to see

  • Spot

    We can push bluebell and LAJane for the Hornets honey bees! =)

  • Spot

    Probably Batum is playing selfish because of Kemba’s style of play. He’s in his contract year so he wants to keep his numbers high.

    We know Jeremy is different. There’s no I in Jeremy, that’s why he’s so special.

  • KHuang

    What happens on the NBA court stays on the court.

    Players can be friends off the court but SELFISHLY HATE EACH OTHER on the court.

    The NBA game is a business, not playtime amongst friends.

  • KHuang

    Not likely.

    Batum has proven so far to be totally unwilling to play off Lin.

  • KHuang

    ???

    I don’t know what games you were watching, but the Houston commentators and franchise HATED Lin and always criticized him.

  • kauaiblue

    Lol at 3…

  • kauaiblue

    Good idea!

  • kauaiblue

    Didnt look too gimpy to me…

  • KHuang

    It’s very simple as to why the NBA is targeting Lin.

    Because the general American media and entertainment industry regards Asian Americans as THE ENEMY, the NBA is treating Lin as Public Enemy Number One who gets beaten WWE style by “real” Americans.

    The only difference is that WWE has fake blood while the NBA has real blood with “vil-Lin”.

  • kauaiblue

    Fake.

  • kauaiblue

    Wlkins was for an opposing team… drexler commentated for jeremys own team…

  • kauaiblue

    Lol

  • KHuang

    Linjured?

    Believe it or not, Jeremy Lin shoots better injured that healthy.

    That’s because when Lin doesn’t have both legs, he cannot do his twisted up demented Doc Scheppler form with the wrong footwork that bricks free throws and wide open shots.

    When Lin is banged up and injured, he defaults to the old style NBA shooting style he learned from his dad. That’s the style that got him into the NBA and did Linsanity.

  • JJ Hui

    Are you Morey?

  • JJ Hui

    Yeah, that is low character Houston Clyde Dexler!
    The New York Clyde Frazier is a very fair and fun commentator to Lin.

  • JJ Hui

    The New York Clyde Frazier yes but not Houston Clyde Drexler, the whole world know since 2013 how the Houston media unfair to Lin.

  • Acbc

    I disagree. Lin’s form looks almost perfect now. Doc Scheppler is just too far ahead of the curve IMO.

    Lin’s release yesterday was much quicker and lower than his old form. It’s that quick release that allows him to get those 3s away before defenders can get on top of him. Lin’s changed form is to make his perimeter and rim game wider. He doesn’t need to have his old platform, ball high above his head midrange shot that was prevalent in the heydays of ISO play.

    ASG – VOTE for LIN! 8 days to go.

    It’s quite a statement that Lin continues to be one of the top vote getters. It would be even greater if fans can move him up from 8th among EC guards, and 13th among all guards. Even if Lin doesn’t get to go to the ASG (at least this year), it will send a message to the NBA and potential sponsors, that Lin still has huge fan support — also a message to Lin himself in a very tangible way.
    Lin very likely has about twice as many votes as Walker and Batum, combined! Maybe more* That also says something. Hornets fans are increasingly realizing that Lin is the team’s best facilitator and floor general – and one of their best scorers when given the chance. He plays the game the right way. Hopefully at least one GM with courage is paying attention.

    *Walker and Batum are not among the top guard and frontcourt vote getters listed, and the bottom combined have 66,150 (#10 R.Jackson 44,525, #15 P.Millsap 21,625). Lin has 122,988.

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya I was worried about that. Even after he finished the game those things tend to start really hurting afterwards.

  • KHuang

    For once, I totally disagree with you.

    Lin’s form looks perfect right now BECAUSE he’s NOT doing Doc Scheppler’s girls’ basketball shooting form that doesn’t suit men.

    Because Lin is injured and cannot plant his feet incorrectly the girl’s way Doc Scheppler taught him, Lin’s REVERTED to his high school and college shooting form with the quick release and fluid mechanics. That’s the NBA style form that Lin learned from his dad, and it’s used by great shooters like Bird and Jordan.

    The same exact thing happened late last season when Lin was totally banged up. Lin shot incredibly well because he wasn’t corkscrewing his body to do a girl’s shooting form like Doc taught him.

    Lin shoots better off balance than with his feet INCORRECTLY planted.

  • 1mtoldman

    lin will never play point guard for any significant minutes with this team the way it is currently constructed.

    that being said he has been able to adapt to what he has been give and with the aid of circumstances of injuries to others his minutes have become for a time signficant and he has been able to produce his best string of scoring games since his first season in houston.

    that could change however once others become healthy.

    but for the first time in his career he is not being permitted to play point guard; the pecking order is walker, batum, roberts, maybe even lamb (sort of on his own i think), then and only then lin.

    so no assists but points yes.

    Demoted but not fired.

  • 1mtoldman

    reassigned to sanitation perhaps.

  • 1mtoldman

    we have hope heart (with a star) and faith here i think.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah what she said.

  • 1mtoldman

    wish i knew what that symbol was here that i can’t see; all i ever get is :), like that.

    no emojos (or whatever they’re called) for me.

    note to self: correct the auto correct on blubell so i dont get corrected here.

    Staples was amazingly easy to get in and out of…to our surprise and delight. Lots of parking, very well organized, continuous food courts so no agonizing waits. So you could go advice-less and no problem.

    Blubell is knowledgeable about the game, unlike me who is learning from forum comments, stats, highlight clips and the rare free bugless streaming. Tight budget means no TV sports passes so little opportunity to train my in-game eye. Blubell chuckled at the cheat-sheet I brought with the faces and numbers of the Clips so I’d know who was doing what to who, other than obviously CP and Redick. Some of the worst manhandling was so egregious that I’d sometimes turn to her for confirmation: “Did I just really see that!?” Yep. So She was definitely the essential sugar, and I was the lung-power spice 🙂

    Yes it was the nose-bleed rafters, but we were directly above Hornets team seating, so we actually got an unobstructed view of bench action. During shoot around, Kemba and someone else (Marvin?) were watching tape of a game and gesturing. Couldn’t get telephoto enough to see who the opponent was (bad spy!) Not a lot of player interaction while sitting on the bench – not so much joy in mudville. Jeremy was often sitting, sometimes standing, quietly on the edges while Cliff went over the x/o with Kemba and the bigs…until about the middle of the 3rd when coach switched to talking to Jeremy. Too late….but I liked seeing that anyway.

    I missed the good game by Jlin but it shows every game that Kemba is just an a poor man’s Ellis,inspite of tight ankle and bad refs Lin still manage to come up with extra ordinary performance.

  • LAJane

    Hahaha. But I’m past the sparkly hot pants stage of life 😀

  • guest

    Just started to watch the replay of the game and in the first period, two of J.J. Redick’s three pointers at 7:19 & 6:29 were from moving screens. Not to say J.J. couldn’t have made them, but it gave him extra time to set up and shoot because of the illegal, moving screens set by his teammates.

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • blueCypher

    I can’t say I’m surprised , that team is going nowhere. A restart is needed

  • Whitman Lam

    Almost ALL the screens set by the Clippers are moving screens. Plus the screens where Deandre Jordan sticks out his long legs to trip up defenders, that one caused Lin to reinjure his ankle. Clippers were called for offensive fouls setting illegal screens in those preseason games in China. But it did not transfer over to the regular season.

  • 1mtoldman

    and thats a good thing.

  • Whitman Lam

    How long until the Lakers do the same ….. a couple more years of losing ?

  • 1mtoldman

    i posted here just a couple days ago zach lowe’s podcast comments that hollins would be the first nba coach to go.

    faster maybe even then (we) thought.

  • 1mtoldman

    just until kobes been wished a fond farewell. as kupchak said, then “we” can move forward.

    presumably without kobe’s handler, scott.

  • 1mtoldman

    resassign means essentially fired, it means kicked upstairs (or seeing the way in which this was handled maybe downstairs)–wait and see what the russian oligarch says at his news conference.

  • David Kim

    “It’s clear from our current state of affairs that we need new leadership,” owner Mikhail Prokhorov said in a statement. “With the right basketball management and coach in place, we are going to create a winning culture and identity and give Brooklyn a team that it can be proud of and enjoy watching.”

  • guest

    Yeah, I’ll have to agree. They did it to Kemba too. With Kemba the screener released and ran with the guard, with Jeremy it looked like they were blocking for a running back because he can fight through screens better.

  • LAJane

    Hey Psalm234, noticed the comments have disappeared from my game post. There were some I wanted to go back and review about moving screens – continuing education 🙂 Is there someplace I can find them?

  • LAJane

    That is so right. It was like rugby whenever Lin was involved!

  • kauaiblue

    Anyone know if hes playing?

  • guest

  • Acbc

    Yeah, what he said she said. Lol

  • new game thread

    Jeremy Lin is listed as questionable again after he reinjured the ankle although he was able to finish the game strong. It might be wise to sit out the game if the ankle is not cooperating on a back-to-back game.

    If he does play, let’s hope and pray that he can be healthy and play well to continue his hot-shooting from the Clippers game. Let’s go, JLin!

    Lin needs to fall down against moving screen for possible getting call.

  • Acbc

    That’s the transition form to present day. Go back and view Harvard vs UConn or highschool then compare to present and you’ll see a significant difference in how compact and simple his motion is now. Lin has finally arrived at his destination and only needs reps now. Soon you’ll see the quick burst shot that Curry does where speed of release is so much more important than elevation. That is the primary motivation for all this hard work Lin has done to rid extrenious motions. It’s all about creating a shot from the kinesiology of the body and how to manipulate alignments of joints to get them as closely to a single vertical plane.

    In the old forms you’ll notice his flying right elbow at beginning of stroke aimed away to the right of basket. At the end of stroke, his elbow is aimed almost ninety degree away from basket. Lin’s old form require exquisite timing of the pronation of his hip, shoulder, elbow, and wrist joints to create a throw. Today, his stroke is all about supination of those joints, with very little rotation. This means you’ll see less and less of the kicking leg on long 3s and much quicker releases.

    That particular game was a hot Lin coming into a season with positive feed back from his summer of shooting well over 70% on the practice court. Lin was confident and was mentally prepared to do well. Once Mchale benched him again when Beverly returned, Lin lost all that confidence and his stroke went with it.

    Shooting is mental, IMO. A pitcher can’t aim a pitch. He just thinks the target and throws, kinda like a Kareem skyhook. BUT, over a long season, consistency is a key component of greatness. To be a consistent performer, you need more than mental intensity and self confidence. You need a stroke that is fundamentally sound and kinesetically efficient. That’s where Lin is now.

    I told Brent and Psalms 3 weeks ago that I was really really excited about Lin’s stroke and that I’m expecting great things from him as he continues to build reps. I’m expecting him to be 38-38.5% this year on 3s at the end of the season. That’s how good his form looks to me.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Anyone has a picture of Lin Scheppler form and this old form that is being talked about?

  • blubell

    lol. Don’t worry about it!

    Did you try checking them after refresh? If you could let me know…some phrases from the post, I could try searching them.

    BTW, thanks for the great in-game report!

  • JAD2456

    Hi, Parent of Lots of Kids, haven’t heard from you for a while, you probably haven’t watched the games lately since Lin is injured. I have collected the data and made videos and lists about those non-calls. Can you draft a letter about it? Please see my posts here! http://www.jlinportal.com/jeremy-lin-nba-missed-stats/#comment-2481250397

    Thank you so much in advance! I’m wondering if it’d be better if you can make the letter to represent all the Lin fans. So all of us can send the same letter to NBA to arouse their concern and investigation.

    I hope this post reach you well!
