P04 LAL vs UTA Pre-Game Thread

First of all, some game information.

This game will be held @ Honda Center, Anaheim, CA,  on OCT 16th at 7:00 PM PT.

OCT 15 UPDATE:

Lin is adding things everyday, he is about to come back!!!! However, seems like we will have to wait until at least Sunday.

Lin practices his handle reminded me how good his handle looked in Linsanity era. The handling is there, only needed encouragements to show.


OCT 14 UPDATE:  

 

Lin starts to pick up some light activities. Nash’s old problem seems is coming back. LAL is in a need for another playmaker. Even if Lin starts, the 2nd unit will collapse without playmakers…

Seems like it is possible that Price will start on Thur against Jazz


 

OCT 13

We do not know whether J. Lin will play in this game or not. It is so far a 50/50 chance that he will play.

Also Nash seems was hit by injury bug as well.

A big question by fans to Coach Scoot is, is the heavy practice sessions partially causing the injuries and sub-par performances in the games against Warriors. Seems like Scott dialed down a liitle bit after 3 pre-season games were in the book now.

Defense will still be the one and the only focus for the LAL in the coming game against Jazz.

However, Coach Scott might also start to think about the regular rotations for this team in the regular season. So far it seems the chances of Lin starting is getting higher….we will wait and see how it will plays out in the final 5 preseason games.
