P06 LAL vs PHX Game Thread

Finally, Lin WILL PLAY in this game. There was no reporter announcement but Jeremy tweeted the news himself.

Again, let’s use the Disqus comments as the only option for Preseason Game 6 Game Chat so we can benchmark our experience of using CHAT and DISQUS for Game Thread.

The game will tip off around 7pm PT OCT 21 @ Honda Center, Anaheim, CA.

  • blubell

    Go Jeremy and the Lakers!

  • Finally, you’re back to be 1ST!

  • Jeremy in the yellow jumpsuit has arrived at Anaheim with his teammates. #BruceLinStyle #EnterTheDragon

  • Michael

    Go bluebell…boooo Brent…(even though he isn’t here)

  • real-dsb

    Word is that Price is starting and Lin coming off the bench.

  • yes.. I just saw Mark Medina’s tweet .BOOO!

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/524720608589139968

  • real-dsb

    As I’ve maintained all along, I actually don’t care who starts. All that matters is who plays the important minutes.

    And this being a preseason game where Lin is not 100% healed from 2 ankle sprains, I’m not sweating it.

  • True, I see there’s some experimentation but at some point I want to see how Kobe+Lin will finish strong.

    There needs to be a lot of PT with Kobe+Lin on the floor to finish games.

  • John Lee

    Whew, I’m here for a fresh breath of air and some cool basketball minds. Our old turd just blew a few lids off about Lin not starting. So much negativity despite troll Voltron banned. It’s only preseason and people already bent out of shape on an hourly basis.

    I’m so grateful for this Sanctuary!

  • Brent Yen

    LOL….Lin is unlikely to play many minutes tonight, no reason to put him in starting lineup at all.

  • John Lee

    Exactly, and Price’s been running with the starters so it’s only fair that he’s allowed his 5 minutes of glory. Management is an art.

    Yet people at the old turf are calling Scott racist and making death wishes. I’ve spent a couple of years there and there are still a lot of great people, it’s sad to have to leave, but the negativity there is overwhelming. Here I can’t use colorful language but I like the fact that I won’t need to.

  • Michael

    Me too. It’s like if you don’t agree that Lin has to start they can just swear at you. And it’s just a preseason game, and we don’t know if Lin’s ankle is 100%..

  • Brent Yen

    Ha! This is internet all about…:P

  • Michael

    Maybe we should switch to intranet.

  • 1mtoldman

    well im not tech enuf to follow the format here but i monitor; that other place was fun early 2nite i even popped in for a bit to clown around with etane and others before closer to game time; i am pleased to hear that voltron who i left there because of was finally banned. but as you say theres a whole new legion of baby v’s born and attracting the worst of the old. appreciate the info. i saw it starting to get dark there again so left. i been watching houston/mia. houston winnning; has there ever been a game harden played when he scored more points than the primary player he was opposed with on the other team? harden making wade look good; howard beating bosh tho.

  • Brent Yen

    My router is about to die, I guess I can not join the conversation today…darn it.

  • 1mtoldman

    where do old routers go when they die?

  • Michael

    CPR

  • Brent Yen

    doing heart transplant?

  • Michael

    If it’s crashing because of the heat, turn a fan on it. Or get one of your kids to fan it during the game.

  • Brent Yen

    Nah…I suspect there are defects in the memory chip.

  • JoeTeam

    i feel the same. I hope more come over.

  • JoeTeam

    … and then they call you out for being beta when you might have already taken it to the hoop many times and won and lost.

  • Michael

    I am sure you can still do your trolling in Disqus.

  • JoeTeam

    can you do a cold reboot, or reflash your firmware?

  • Michael

    I don’t know what their obsession with this alpha beta thing is about. Maybe too much teenwolf.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Better have Price start on this one, with Jeremy coming back from injury. The last thing this birthday girl needs is seeing Jeremy getting into an injury almost immediately again.

  • real-dsb

    aw man, too bad. How are you commenting now if your router is dead?

  • real-dsb

    time to make friends with your neighbor and ask for their wifi password. =p

  • JoeTeam

    I know … when I was younger, it was really painful to be shut down all the time bcuz of being Asian, yellow fever from our own, etc. At the end of the day, it took a lot of will and drive to ascend despite that. Nowadays, with social media, you get the ones unwilling to put in the effort, so all you get is complaining about stuff.

    Really, every person on this planet is facing adversity, and it takes character (like Lin) to ascend through adversity.

    So there you go, I understand them, but it still is a trollfest so here I am.

  • real-dsb

    today’s your birthday? Happy birthday!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yes, and thanks!

  • real-dsb

    I heard that was going to sit this one out as a precaution, but upon finding out it was your bday, he decided to come off the bench for you. =)

  • TTNN

    Happy birthday

  • real-dsb

    wow, kobe playing defense like it’s the olympics

  • John Lee

    Happy birthday! Even Jeremy is celebrating it by coming back from his injury. He got his priority straight! 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    happy day! Hug your dad and mom!

  • John Lee

    Emergency maneuver: put it in the freezer for a couple of minutes and take it out before condensation forms inside the router.

  • real-dsb

    terrible shot selection by Bledsoe

  • TTNN

    impressed with Kobe’s defense though

  • real-dsb

    terrible cross court pass by Price, led to dunk

  • k.smith

    thanks for the updates. hopefully i’ll be able to catch some of it.

  • that’s one bad telegraphed pass. His shooting started well. More like Toney Douglas game as a small SG

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Thanks!

  • Brent Yen

    LOL….condensation will kill it…well it is dying anyway

  • real-dsb

    that’s a good comparison

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Brent Yen

    on my cell phone

  • TTNN

    defense looks good, offense kind of slow

  • Brent Yen

    I just reinstalled the firmware,…..nothing changed

  • Brent Yen

    Starters are old…:P

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I mentally sent him a message to play on the 21st.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I did.Thanks!

  • Michael

    Wes is…

  • TTNN

    they should let Lin there now, they are getting sloppy now

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Thanks! 🙂

  • Wes Johnson with bad screen canceling Kobe’s breakaway layup.
    His BB IQ is not very high. There’ve been some silly TOs like this

  • real-dsb

    Lakers need a point guard

  • TTNN

    wow, that’s Price’s defense, just let Dragic walk in

  • TTNN

    should call a time out now

  • Michael

    His defense was Priceless

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Goran VERY UNCONTESTED THERE!

  • Price TO. Traveled trying to create dribble-penetration.
    It’s really not his game. He simply tried to give the ball to Kobe.

  • real-dsb

    Scott probably preplanned when he will sub Lin in. Since it’s preseason, I don’t think he will sub based on score or play. Scott wants to see what this lineup can do.

  • Michael

    Followed by and travel…and Happy Birthday!!

  • real-dsb

    Goran blew right by Price

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Haha thanks! Thanks Dragic!lol

  • TTNN

    Price could not stop Dragic…. 8 pts in one quarter

  • John Lee

    LOVE the pic with boyfie!

  • real-dsb

    good defense by Price there, very Lin-like. Holding his ground, not allowing the opponent to push him around.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    ‘Blew by’ an understatement.He danced his way to the basket.

  • k.smith

    box score closer than I thought.

  • k.smith

    he gon be the starter.

  • TTNN

    be patient, and see, this is still pre-season

  • JoeTeam

    assist to TO: 0.5

  • Michael

    I dunno 4 mistakes as a PG and 1 very good defensive play guarding bledsoe = starting PG? Sure hope not. And he is not a rookie.

  • JoeTeam

    bummer. new toys!

  • Michael

    Are we there yet..

  • real-dsb

    Lin is in to start the 2nd quarter

  • After 1st quarter, Lakers is down 17-24.

    Price performed OK but way too many TOs IMO in an experiment to hand the ball to Kobe to create. Decent defense.
    He simply didn’t help Kobe’s job to be easier which is the primary criteria.

  • Lin’s in for 2nd quarter!

  • 7iger

    No wonder you were sharing the cake

  • real-dsb

    wow, what a block by Davis!

  • real-dsb

    Lin has a tough assignment to guard the tiny and quick Isaiah Thomas

  • Lin with good deflection on Thomas leading to fastbreak

  • real-dsb

    Q2 10m Lin drew the defense and kicked out for a wide open Ellington. unfortunately Ell missed the 3

  • k.smith

    this is going to happen a lot.

  • real-dsb

    Q2 10m Lin poked the ball away, Ell came up with the ball for the breakaway. Got fouled and missed the dunk/layup

  • 7iger

    Geez! Lakers Clanks a lot

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Damn shots not falling for the Lakers.

  • 7iger

    And it went in as I said that

  • real-dsb

    LOL, no way Randle was going to stop on that fast break

  • JoeTeam

    randle handles way better than Parsons, imho

  • Brent Yen

    He is faster…

  • 7iger

    Happy B-day

  • JoeTeam

    and he can go in weaving fakes while he moves. Parson’s is easy to guard because he’s linear.

  • emz

    Someone with more time than me should do on/off stats for league players who make their rosters get more steals just by being on the floor. ‘Cause I swear Lin helps poke so many balls loose that teammates capitalize on.

  • real-dsb

    looks like Lin actually got credit for the steal instead of Ellington

  • 7iger

    yup

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Thanks Garfield…7iger

  • 7iger

    another block for Davis

  • Lin with another great assist to Davis as the shot clock ran out!

  • JoeTeam

    feeding Davis!

  • real-dsb

    wow, Lin draws quadruple team in the penetration and fed Davis. love the Lin Davis connection!

  • Michael

    Lin is boss.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    4 more points to trim down…go!

  • JoeTeam

    kobe Lin action!

  • 7iger

    Don’t sound like KHuang, someone might attack you. I kid.

  • real-dsb

    like the aggressiveness and confidence by Lin, despite almost getting picked

  • real-dsb

    Q2 6m Gerald Green, are you serious? that was Curry-like

  • JoeTeam

    kobe sharing!

  • blubell

    Interesting interaction between Jeremy and Kobe.

  • real-dsb

    beautiful pass by Kobe to Davis, got fouled before the dunk though

  • Linteresting Linteraction? :>

  • blubell

    Nice D

  • Great D by Lin on Thomas causing him to travel!

  • blubell

    Stop it ;P

  • 7iger

    Nah, Lin no D 😉

  • blubell

    Come one, trolling stops when Jeremy plays 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    handle is rusty

  • emz

    announcers basically said that lin’s defense was on point, because that’s how you’d have to defend a guard iso’ing ^_^ nice indirect kudos to lin there

  • yes, loved the single mindset to get to the basket!
    He’s the great playmaker that can consistently do it (as Kobe said).

  • Michael

    handle or randle?

  • yeah, need a lot of practice

  • JoeTeam

    2 guys reaching tho.

  • blubell

    can it be both?

  • TTNN

    so starters here now

  • JoeTeam

    yeah, you smile at that Kobe …

  • TTNN

    Does Hill always screen out Lin?

  • Maknusia

    he was very assertive, very focused to bring to the basket. Thats what he need to constantly do, beautiful to see that

  • IsabeliJane*17

    J playing with starters.These guys better step up.

  • JoeTeam

    you got props from announcers …

  • Maknusia

    beautiful in blocking he passing lane and causes TO to Suns!

  • TTNN

    Now real starters here.

  • real-dsb

    Wesley Johnson blows Lin’s awesome 3/4 court pass

  • Brent Yen

    He got pickpocketed by a foot

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wes very boneheaded move out there,passing to Hill whose back is turned away.More Davis time.

  • blubell

    Hockey assist?

  • real-dsb

    low BB IQ, what can you say =)

  • LOL Gerald Green pass to outer space!

  • blubell

    Very aggressive Jeremy tonight.

  • 7iger

    oh boy Lin fall too many times already

  • Loved Lin’s aggressiveness to the basket. 4pts with 0FG!

  • real-dsb

    Jeremy aggressive again, forcing his way in the paint, but without jumping and taking a hard fall. I like it.

  • TTNN

    wow, love they are running 1,2 pick and roll, nice

  • real-dsb

    Lakers have the lead, Lin +7 so far

  • emz

    awwww =) I think Kobe just asked if Lin’s alright, because Lin seemed to say “yeah I’m alright” while nodding

  • JoeTeam

    liking Lin working with Kobe …

  • IsabeliJane*17

    1 point to go!

  • TTNN

    I love Davis

  • emz

    so upset that they didn’t go to this more with harden and lin, I really hope the lakers choose to abuse this play

  • they’re talking and communicating constantly!
    This is not Houston anymore :>

  • JoeTeam

    Lin leads them back … ha ha trolls not here.

  • emz

    that went in but Lin’s defense has been on point

  • real-dsb

    Q2 3m Lin with great perimeter defense on Thomas. Unfortunately, Thomas ended up making a circus lefty shot.

  • JoeTeam

    just a matter of time …

  • Michael

    No love for Lin’s D on Isaiah?

  • JoeTeam

    good one … chose to abuse …

  • and not getting technical from the ref after pumping his fist hoping for a foul

  • TTNN

    I hope this current line up will be their starters. I don’t like Hill, I like Davis.

  • Brent Yen

    Just better offense….very low percentage shot

  • Davis is 5X Hill on defense

  • real-dsb

    agreed

  • TTNN

    yeah

  • real-dsb

    you mean from the announcers? we’re loving it here

  • JoeTeam

    props to:

    Kobe working with Lin
    Announcers talking truth
    Lin steady and coming back from injury

    Only wish … one more FT. 4/6 not cool but maybe he can finish up 9/10.

  • emz

    got the T, kobe just shot it

  • blubell

    Great pass.

  • Lin with the highest +/- at +11 to lead 26-15 run in the 2nd quarter

  • real-dsb

    Lin making a lot of great bounce passes.

  • blubell

    Jeremy is a game changer.

  • JoeTeam

    Isaiah fighting with Lin. Good. Get his head outta there ..

  • you mean 8/10? 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    Lin was sealed at the block!!!

  • blubell

    Jeremy trying to post up IT 😉

  • JoeTeam

    oops, brain mush …

  • a bit later but he kept yapping at the ref and got it 😀

  • TTNN

    so Jeremy don’t have a FGA yet?

  • real-dsb

    q2 1m ugh, another low bb iq play by wes. Bounce pass straight to the opponent.

  • blubell

    nope just FTs

  • nope.. kept getting fouled driving to the basket :>

  • TTNN

    uh, there is Lin’s FGA

  • JoeTeam

    liking the intensity between Lin and IT.

  • real-dsb

    Q2 0m refs called foul on Lin on Thomas. replayed showed there was no contact.

  • real-dsb

    now he does. 3/4 end of half shot. =p

  • Brent Yen

    IT has been like that since last yr. He plays extra hard against Lin.

  • TTNN

    am I the only one feel Jeremy’s passing get better? he has some surprise passing angle than last season….

  • real-dsb

    the squeaky wheel gets the grease (technical)

  • Michael

    Must be all those math lessons from Morey.

  • blubell

    The smaller guards tend to do play hard against him. Like Nate Robinson and Barea.

  • real-dsb

    I commented below too. Really effective bounce passes to get the ball into the post. Last year, Houston could not get the ball into the post.

  • JoeTeam

    better movement from Kobe and a good cut from Boozer?

  • JoeTeam

    I think when they were saying the couldn’t get to the post, Lin was doing it and it was Harden and Bev who couldn’t get it to D12.

  • Michael

    This year they are much much much…about the same.

  • blubell

    Jeremy seems to be using his left hand a lot more or is it just me?

  • JoeTeam

    IT messed with him by cheating right by a lot on one play, but Lin didn’t go left because he was still scoping out the play.

  • Brent Yen

    IMO, in IT’s case, he just can not bearing the thought that he was out played by Lin

  • Brent Yen

    They shades him to his left…this is common

  • Michael

    You are not alone.

  • Brent Yen

    I think it was not the passing. It was because of the body movement

  • 7iger

    I am here with you…

  • Brent Yen

    He is not here

  • Michael

    You are not alone (and I got a You have already made this comment warning).

  • 7iger

    Oops thought we are sing MJ “you are not alone”

  • Michael

    IT seems very pleased with himself, but he is starving his other 4 teammates.

  • Brent Yen

    Yep….I still remember last yr, he elbowed Lin then complained to ref about Lin fouled him.

  • blubell

    Ah, thanks for the explanation.

  • real-dsb

    Halftime summary:

    As reported, Price started the game and played the entire 1st quarter. Price didn’t do a whole lot. Just passed the ball to Kobe.

    Lin played the entire 2nd quarter. Matched up against Isaiah Thomas the entire time. He was very aggressive and confident, forcing his way into the paint at times to pick up the foul. He made a ton of accurate bounce passes to get the ball into the post. 3 assists and no turnovers. The “3 pt miss” was just a 3/4 court heave at the end of the half and can be ignored.

    On defense, he guarded the tiny and quick Isaiah Thomas well, despite a misleading box score. For the most part, Lin held IT in check. Also got 2 steals.

    Q2: 12 min, 4 pts, 0-1 fg, 0-1 3pt, 4-6 ft, 2 reb, 3 ast, 2 stl, 0 to, +4 (leads the Lakers).
    Note, the 3 pt miss was a 3/4 court heave at the end of the half.

  • they’re not here together 😀

  • JoeTeam

    I noted that, but I can’t remember what move he made. I think he too IT to a screen. Definitely showed his brain at work not taking the bait.

  • Brent Yen

    I think his aggressiveness was ok

  • Maknusia

    I feel thats true for all the PG playing against JL

  • real-dsb

    Price starting Q3, Lin sitting

  • TTNN

    Lin will finish

  • Brent Yen

    yes, but IT stood out to me in this regard for 2 yrs now

  • Michael

    I like his lingression too.

  • JoeTeam

    IT got 2 FT on phantom contact.

  • real-dsb

    Q2 10m without Lin in there, Kobe has to carry the team on his back.

  • Brent Yen

    Price should be benched ….

  • Michael

    Priceless D on Bledsoe.

  • JoeTeam

    When he’s been on his own, his first move has resulted in double team and close out. So, I think he just needs to work it out how he’s going to get the ball to the cutting man. Like with booz and the one where the shot clock was gone. He’s doing alright … just need the rest of team and him to be in sync.

  • TTNN

    so defensively, they hide Kobe at 4.

  • real-dsb

    Price getting schooled by Bledsoe. Price even did the Harden defense, let him drive past him and try to poke the ball out from behind. Didn’t work, and led to a Bledsoe assist for dunk.

  • Michael

    Price isn’t helping the offense either, everything is on Kobe now. Not a good look.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugly offense with J not on the floor.Horrendous defense

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe can not run a team…weird.

  • JoeTeam

    points slipping when JLin is laying down with the puppies.

  • Brent Yen

    Bledsoe is eating Price alive…lol

  • real-dsb

    wesley johnson, another low bbiq bounce pass that missed badly

  • Brent Yen

    Not a bad rotation to test Lin. Basically let his minutes slides 6 minutes so he gets to play with starters and bench with about the same minutes

  • JoeTeam

    not weird … too young and they don’t listen to older guys ha ha.

  • TTNN

    the same with Price

  • Brent Yen

    Yep

  • real-dsb

    3q3m Davis with a nice finish inside

  • real-dsb

    3q3m Price ugly play. I don’t even know what happened, but it was ugly

  • Michael

    Price with good perimeter defense, problem was Dragic was in the paint making a layup. Only off by 10 ft. or so.

  • Michael

    Seems like Davis is better than Hill at taking contact.

  • JoeTeam

    4Q is gonna be fun!

  • real-dsb

    3q2m IT back in the game, matched up against Price

  • Brent Yen

    Helping one pass away…SMH

  • Brent Yen

    Suns simply having more fire power….and LAL are not loading their gun at all. 😛

  • Brent Yen

    Why was Randle blocking Lin…

  • TTNN

    so that foul results in no basket.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Finally some J jumper.

  • real-dsb

    Q4 Lin is in, matched up against Thomas.

  • real-dsb

    4q11m IT made tough jumper over Lin

  • blubell

    Alley oop!

  • JoeTeam

    I just smiled big.

  • Maknusia

    JL trademark…just there

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Alley to Davis!woo hoo!

  • real-dsb

    4q9m Lin draws the triple team. Alley oop to Davis!!! Just like Knicks Tyson days.

  • TTNN

    Lakers really hurt not shooting and making 3s

  • Maknusia

    yeah, that truly hurts….

  • Brent Yen

    They have bigger problems ….so…

  • TTNN

    what problem?

  • real-dsb

    Lin said, “That was for IsabeliJane. Happy bday!”

  • Michael

    Last year NBA’s slogan was think BIG

  • TTNN

    was there people chanting Jeremy Lin?

  • blubell

    Who ran into Jeremy?

  • blubell

    Jeremy/Davis… let’s go!

  • Maknusia

    The commentators was chanting Linsanity

  • JoeTeam

    LiiiinN! to Davis again.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Another J-Davis connection!

  • real-dsb

    4q8m Lin with great vision to find a wide open Davis on the break. Like the good ole days.

  • blubell

    Another signature pass.

  • blubell

    3!!!!

  • blubell

    Jeremy the difference maker 😉

  • Maknusia

    welcome back baby

  • real-dsb

    4q7m Kobe back in

  • blubell

    Randle completely ignored Jeremy.

  • Lin said to Randle, “I was OPEN!”

    Randle failed to be LBJ

  • 7iger

    PG Randle

  • JoeTeam

    Dang, Lin wide open for the 3 no kick out.

  • real-dsb

    randle… showing that he’s a rookie

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Rookie,know your place!

  • John Lee

    Randle and Clarkson to D-League for a few weeks for respect and discipline lessons as soon as Young and Kelly are back.

  • real-dsb

    4q5 Kobe with a 35 ft attempt. lol

  • TTNN

    I like Lakers commentators, pretty fair

  • real-dsb

    send Wes too

  • real-dsb

    that’s an understatement compared to the Rox commentators

  • TTNN

    D-league will not help Wes

  • Brent Yen

    WEs has to go to Europe

  • Announcer, “I like Lin’s change of direction”

    They notice and appreciate good things

  • JoeTeam

    Is it me, or is Lin their only hope to win this, even though it’s preseason.

  • QQ

    He had his defender in the air, over him. He should’ve gone up leaning in a bit, and gotten possibly an and-one.

  • Michael

    You are not alone.

  • 7iger

    I think not just you, everyone.

  • JoeTeam

    He followed the big in … don’t know why he kicked it out to the 3 though, he was wide open.

  • JoeTeam

    yes, then if Randle had kicked it out, it’d be almost tied.

  • Lin cut through the heart of the defense. SLICED!

  • blubell

    Jeremy very active

  • TTNN

    Wes!!!!!

  • 7iger

    I mean most Lin’s fan.

  • JoeTeam

    blutbell .. JLin goest first step left. Awesome. He’s just not taking bait!

  • to the D-League!

  • Wes with 7 TOs!!!!!

  • 7iger

    OMG, even stone hands O can catch that.

  • blubell

    Mr. 4th quarter doing his thing 😉

  • I really really like LA refs’ whistle for Lin 😀

  • Maknusia

    nice to see the fair foul call he gets

  • real-dsb

    4q4 Lin setting the offense like the floor general, draws foul against IT.

  • JoeTeam

    LOL Lin with the Harden sell.

  • 7iger

    2 years with Har_en better learn that.

  • Almost a 3! That would have brought down the building…

  • real-dsb

    4q2 Lin with the pullup 3, missed. I like his confidence though. Good percentage open look.

  • Brent Yen

    That pull up shot is what Lin needs to do. He was 26% last yr.

  • TTNN

    okay, who wished for 8-10 FT? you got it already. 🙂

  • @joeteam:disqus 😀

  • JoeTeam

    That’s a Curry specialty. On a good night, that ends the opposition. Lin gotta hang out with Curry more.

  • Michael

    That would have crashed the server.

  • JoeTeam

    I wanna have more, don’t want to be right …

  • Announcers, “Jeremy Lin really TOOK OVER in the 4th quarter!”

  • Maknusia

    greedy!

  • QQ

    Don’t know what’s with Stu having so much trouble giving Lin any compliments. Not as bad as Drexler, but it’s quite clear that any sort of acknowledgement out of him comes only begrudgingly. It’s like he’s one of those who had dismissed in the past Lin as being a fluke, and now is having difficulty reconciling himself to accept Lin as a legit player.

  • Maknusia

    yes!

  • 7iger

    Davis always efficiency.

  • real-dsb

    4q1:30 Kobe calling the iso for himself. Fadeaway jumper for the lead.

  • JoeTeam

    well, sometimes it’s good right?

  • blubell

    Kobe taking over the game…

  • 7iger

    wow Kobe

  • Brent Yen

    Are we in for OT?

  • real-dsb

    4q0:43 Kobe draws triple team. turnaround jumper.

  • real-dsb

    announcers said about Lin:

    he’s taking over in the 4th quarter
    reading the defense
    good passing
    outside shot looks confident

  • real-dsb

    it’s almost like Kobe heard the announcers say how Lin was taking over the 4th quarter and Kobe’s like, “hold on, don’t forget me” =)

  • 7iger

    Thomas afraid to leave Lin all the way to help def Kobe.

  • Brent Yen

    They need bigs for double. IT is too small

  • This is a great game for Lin to be the 2nd Banana for the Lakers after Kobe.

    Kobe as the highest scorer with 21 pts, Lin 2nd with 15pts

  • Maknusia

    thats was MJ mimic on body shake

  • JoeTeam

    hope not, need to rest Lin. I was bummed with the 3/3 kobe near end. Hope this isn’t a trend. Too easy to lose big games.

  • JoeTeam

    It’s clear LAL were looking for Lin to lead the offense back, until it was time for ISO.

  • 7iger

    wow a foul

  • JoeTeam

    2 phantom fouls called on Lin tonight, per the announcers!

  • blubell

    Booooooo

  • real-dsb

    And Kobe needs that from Lin, because he wouldn’t have the legs for those fadeaway jumpers at the end of the game if Kobe had to carry them in q1-3

  • Isaiah Thomas choked

  • Then Wes choked

  • JoeTeam

    It’s ok now … whew. I wished Lin could have finished out, but it’s ok. Great Game!

  • Twice

  • QQ

    Wes Johnson seems to have money on the Suns…

  • blubell

    wow. OT

  • real-dsb

    I knew Wes was going to miss the FT

  • 7iger

    LOL OT

  • JoeTeam

    dang, OT without Lin. Crap.

  • His heart is made of Tofu

  • TTNN

    uhhhh, OT no Lin….. who suppose to defend IT?

  • Michael

    Wes was standing there ball watching, didn’t box out and didn’t go for the rebound.

  • real-dsb

    well, I gotta say this is probably the best preseason game of the year. both teams actually playing hard and exciting.

  • TTNN

    Lin +12, Price -13…

  • real-dsb

    you called it

  • 7iger

    W. Johnson sucks..

  • Lin and Davis with the two highest +/- at +12 and +10.

    The next one is Ellington at +4

  • blubell

    This OT Brent’s fault…

  • JoeTeam

    Trolls said Price gonna seal starter tonight.

  • real-dsb

    floyd mayweather (lin hater) watching this game. Is he a Lakers fan? ugh

  • Maknusia

    will give him some time, to get familiarize with play and team

  • QQ

    Wes seems to have A LOT of money on the Suns…

  • JoeTeam

    True, true … see how tired he was after the 3rd one.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • 7iger

    I guess it is all depend on Kobe now

  • Maknusia

    i was thinking the same here…ban brent

  • 7iger

    OMG, 8 TO for Johnson

  • QQ

    Wes seems to have mortgaged his house to bet on the Suns…

  • 7iger

    Wes bball IQ is too low to be a starter.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Note to Byron:the guard coming from injury made an IMPACT WAY BETTER than the other guard (not the injured future HoF).If you’re smart,you’ll know who to start.

  • It took just 1 game to show that the difference of 85% Lin and Price is day and night

  • real-dsb

    ot2m Kobe out of the game. Scott being smart and not overplaying Kobe in preseason.

  • 7iger

    Sun keep Leading every time without Lin.

  • Wes-Nile-sanity!

  • TTNN

    so Kobe is out?

  • really good decision.

  • blubell

    Oh, psalm… lol

  • TTNN

    yeah, that’s smart

  • 7iger

    Johnson try to redeem?

  • blubell

    What else is new…

  • TTNN

    he needs that, so he could be confidence

  • JoeTeam

    hey, Phx is your team. Do you like this year’s setup?

  • Maknusia

    others need to learn to step up

  • TTNN

    Price, @#$@*^&$%

  • real-dsb

    ot0:26 Price loses the ball himself trying a 360 spin.

  • Brent Yen

    And ppl say Lin’s handle is bad…

  • 7iger

    Currently, Johnson -8, 8rb, 8TO

  • Maknusia

    Price trying to force into….he should learn to calm down in running the offense

  • 7iger

    It is over

  • TTNN

    how Price got 10 assist? Don’t feel that way though.

  • blubell

    I h8 his game tonight.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The regulation had a regular season intensity.OT was meh…

  • blubell

    He passed to Kobe.

  • I still can’t believe how he got those 8 TOs.
    They are simply killers

  • blubell

    1st and 3rd Q was meh too.

  • Maknusia

    win would had been nice…but I’m okay…playing together in getting the chemistry right is more important.

  • TTNN

    IC

  • 7iger

    Mostly low IQ TO

  • TTNN

    Price is -19!!!!

  • 7iger

    Not anymore after last 2 points, now -10.

  • Michael

    Price played really poorly but he should start because he is gritty….whatever that means.

  • TTNN

    Not bad, this Laker team will still be fun…..

  • real-dsb

    wow, i’m shocked, definitely didn’t feel like 10 asts. I would have guessed 3.

  • JoeTeam

    lol.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Edit: The 4Q had a regular season intensity

  • blubell
  • 7iger

    I guess when Lin sub out we can just keep on chatting haha. The offense is unbearable without Lin’s command.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ll chant for “championship!championship!”

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Michael

    A question to the elders on this site. Is this the norm for the lakers front court?
    Wes low BBIQ
    Hill soft
    Boozer slow
    A bit disturbing.

  • JoeTeam

    Nice game by Jeremy. Sort of troubled this team is so thin. They can be scouted easily. They better work it out over the next month … talent there, but I wonder about some decisions on the court. Also they have to shoot better, get more 3s to keep D honest.

  • 7iger

    Davis should start

  • 1. Lin and Price are at the other end of the +/- spectrum with +12 and -19.
    31pt swing is one eye-opener for Laker fans, announcers and reporters

    2. Price really squandered his opportunity to be Nash replacement with the starters.
    He tried his best but he simply doesn’t have the court-vision or athleticism. He’ll be a good backup PG.
    Lin on the other hand, rose to the occasion as Mr. 4th Quarter

    3. Lin-Davis are definitely the highlights of the night connecting on multiple occasions with ESPN-worthy highlights.
    No look-pass, alley-oop, wrap-around pass. They’s just sublime and so fitting for LA Showtime!

    I’m fully satisfied with the LIN-pactful force tonight!

  • 7iger

    Well, they still have a few weapon left on those injured players.

  • believe

    Nice game from Jeremy. So refreshing to see him play point. The 3rd was so boring and the Lakers looked rough. Then Jeremy happened in the 4th and Game On…too bad it ended for him on a sour note. Looking forward to seeing him play this season; it has been a long two years.

  • JoeTeam

    true true.

  • real-dsb

    Game thread now: JLN 2100 comments (incl both halves). JLP 400 comments. So this site is around 20% of JLN active participation. Very impressive given the short time it’s been around.

  • Michael

    The refs really have to cut down on those phantom fouls, or maybe it’s just for Halloween.

  • 7iger

    I think Lin scared Thomas so the refs have to call foul.

  • blubell

    I hate Halloween.

  • JoeTeam

    and no trolling posts to fight through so maybe we have 50% of .net’s quality reads. It’s good enough for me, I’m just looking for good Lin fan and bball talk.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t get it either.

  • cali7

    And 0 turnovers

  • blubell

    You mean Lintensity?

  • And LA being a showbiz town.. they’ll want to see more Lin-Davis and Lin-Kobe :>
    Lin is where he belongs!

  • Michael

    Lin didn’t do enough IMO, if he had a +19 he could have balanced out Prices -19. It’s just math.

  • real-dsb

    who said that?

  • John Lee

    Whereas Jeremy is +12, and Davis +10.

  • good stats-checking!

  • blubell

    Lakers don’t focus on Jeremy’s TOs like Houston.

  • real-dsb

    I had the same observations.

  • 7iger

    Well, they probably have trolls too.

  • blubell

    Are you filling in for Brent tonight?

  • yeah, that’s all we want. Fun cheering and good BB talk!
    Life is too short to spend time with trolls… well, good trolls we’ll keep 😀

  • IsabeliJane*17

    More horrific than a horror movie.

    Add this:
    Back court:PG depth

  • 7iger

    Boozer is old so slow is normal.

  • Michael

    Yes. I hear his router pulled a hamstring, so he couldn’t do his duties as a troll.

  • cali7

    I was listening to ESPN LA for the fourth with Thompson and some other guy, and they were all positive on Lin. I come home to and am watching postgame coverage…more positive comments. It is honestly refreshing.

  • 7iger

    May be his wife pull the plug from his router for keep smiling at the pc.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    How many days will the injured router be out? hahaha

    Brent’s Router – DNP

  • cali7

    Those were on highlights on TWC sportnet postgame coverage.

  • blubell
  • Michael

    Well Brent Scott said he wanted to watch it scrimmage with his kids first, before letting it play.

  • cali7

    Hmm… Scott was asked whether he thought Lin was going to be a closer in games like today and he said that it was a chance to give Lin 20 something minutes and give Price a rest, and then something about tomorrow’s game. Won’t read too much into this, but just reporting.

  • Brent Yen

    e.g. cohesiveness, discipline…

  • blubell
  • SamC89

    The trolls on that site have gotten even worse. A bunch of new members that post as “fans” at first and then all of a sudden post some very CF stuff.

    I tried to go back and browse there but it’s just too hard.

    Though I will say it was a bit confusing at first with Forum, Disqus, and Chat. Wasn’t really sure which area to go to. But overall a great site. Thanks for working together everyone 😀

  • believe

    I am glad I found your site…JLN went down hill couldn’t trust to look at it with my kids around. I want basketball comments not all the other junk. Hoping you will provide this! So far, I like what I see and hear!!

  • SamC89

    I like how he doesn’t throw his players under the bus even if they had a poor outing. This is both encouraging and also firm.

  • k.smith

    d*u*mb*a*zz coach.

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    You may take out “probably”. 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I hate Lin puns as much as J does but I’ll upvote that 😉

  • blubell

    Welcome!

  • blubell

    Take out the trolls.

  • 7iger

    Well, I better off to sleep b4 my wife pull my router’s plug for keep smiling at the PC. Nite all.

  • yeah, it takes some time getting used to 🙂 Forum is just an archive of old posts with comments.

    Disqus is just for general BB talk. Chat is still experimental but many lean towards Disqus, I think

  • SamC89

    I think Scott is just being smart. What he’s trying to do now is manage the confidence of his players. We all know Lin is the better player and he knows Lin is mentally tough so there’s no need to throw Price under the bus.

    Also, remember, he doesn’t want to push Lin too hard either and also take too much of the spotlight away from Kobe. While Kobe is definitely more mature than Melo and has way more accomplishments, he’s only human as well.

    So I want to give Scott the benefit of the doubt there. That he’s going to team unity right now. I’m sure if the reporter had asked something negative about Lin, then Scott would have defended him too.

    We’ll just have to hope and see. Fingers crossed!

  • blubell

    psalm is out of control with Lin puns these days. I’m a little worried. lol

  • Nice! They must be smart analysts LOL

  • blubell

    Good night and join us tomorrow night!

  • Brent Yen

    Too late, when you wake up tomorrow, your PC will be gone

  • QQ

    The Lakers’ stat guy is Price’s agent.

  • Michael

    Brent disagrees. Brent is leaning like Michael Jackson towards chat…

  • cali7

    Price interview – He’s seems relatively humble. Being asked about 10 assists and he says that it’s just guys making shots. Says happy to have Jeremy back. “He looked great.”

  • JoeTeam

    now we have a new JLin fan saying …

  • Michael

    Hey. You are back. I can’t fill your shoes. They are too big.

  • JoeTeam

    you have experienced this lol?

  • Brent Yen

    LOL about to

  • we really get the sense that the announcer fully appreciate what Lin brings

    One example:
    After watching Lin quickly cut to the heart of defense in a split second, Announcer said “It’s one thing to see the opening but to be able to quickly do it is GREAT!”

  • blubell

    I think we should bench Brent and make you our starting troll.

  • Brent Yen

    I thought he already is

  • JoeTeam

    Chat – benefit is is it like live chat so you are in with your Lin pals and it’s for real.

    Disqus – asynchronously, you see who agreed with you with up votes, and it enhances the convos and relationships.

    It lean to chat because you feel like you are really with the people.

  • blubell

    Good that you don’t care about who starts 😉

  • Michael

    We have 2 starting quality trolls. We are going to alternate between them this season….Sounds familiar?

  • Brent Yen

    team player I am….

  • Brent Yen

    are we going to do that alternative starting thing..?

  • Michael

    Not to sound like McHale but “Yes!”

  • Do we need Post-Game thread?

  • blubell

    I don’t remember this happening. lol.

  • Brent Yen

    seems ok so far

  • cali7

    Definitely. They love his penetration and passing. Also great to hear Lin bringing the ball up practically every possession. Really noticed this because I would listen to Rockets games on my way back from work and sometimes I never heard Lin’s name although he was in.

  • Brent Yen

    No wonder you initialed M too.

  • blubell

    PFV.

  • cali7

    I saw this on the highlights on TWC sportsnet. He did it after the alley-oop I think.

  • hey, Brent 🙂 Where u been, man?

  • Michael

    He did that after that no look pass from Lin. But it only lasted for 1 second, plus the amplitude was really low.

  • Brent Yen

    reprogram my router and watch the game using my cell phone…..laggy…

  • Michael

    Woah that was fast.

  • JLin assist to Ed Davis. Both understand PnR very well.
    It’s a beauty to watch!

  • Michael

    Michale?

  • cali7

    Johnson saying Kobe trusting teammates.

  • ah, I just replaced mine 2 days ago.. Life is good afterwards :]

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well, how far Kobe goes into this season also depends on how Jeremy plays.

    Kobe’s shooting caught fire when Jeremy smoothed out their offense in 4Q.

    Lin – Feels good physically. First 2-3 minutes of each time he went in, game felt fast. Says he is trying to be a better defender. He called out the refs a bit. Asked about fouling out. Lin says that he thinks maybe refs not used to but getting used to seeing him as more of an attacking defender. Says he would rather foul out now and get a rep for defending.

  • cali7

    Kobe – “Jeremy Lin makes a big difference.” Creates shots for others; puts pressure on defense. Makes a really big difference.

  • blubell

    Now we know what Kobe and Jeremy are talking about on the court.

    I’m going to note that the question was what was the difference between the blow-out games, and the Jazz game and today’s game. He says some general stuff and then says this about Lin.

  • real-dsb

    Nah, to replace Brent, he’d have to keep to less than 5 words per post.

  • JoeTeam

    I would rest Price too.

  • Brent Yen

    He did that, I think.

  • blubell

    This tweet is misleading and out of context.

  • Brent Yen

    I believe Lin was projected to play only 18 minutes. The last 5 minutes in 4 Q was Price’s. Lin is coming out of 2 injuries……well Lin fouled himself out anyway. LOL

  • Just for the note

    Jeremy “Mr 4th. Quarter” Lin finished with 15pts/5asts/4rebs/2stls/0TOs with the highest +12 on +/- in 24 min.
    Lin and Ed Davis connected a few times on highlight worthy plays

  • blubell

    Scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    If Lin can shoot off the dribble pull up threes at 36+%….he will be super deadly. Especially when he shoots it on top of the key. His worst zone I believe.

  • JoeTeam

    lol … I said 9/10 need remedial math. Saved by psalm.

  • JoeTeam

    you see that when Lin and Kobe were trying to work the pnr, and Lin went in and got fouled. Kobe runs over to explain the play, with PJ Tucker trying to listen it. It’s in the highlights, v interesting to see.

  • JoeTeam

    he’s going to need it on LAL because they won’t naturally kick it out to him for the 3. So, a pull-up will get him some spacing respect.

  • blubell

    Sounds of the Game: Kobe Bryant praised Jeremy Lin in his return as the Lakers agree that they’re finally starting to gel as a team.

  • Brent Yen

    And I noticed that they run a lot of high PnR on top…..

  • JoeTeam

    so tell me more …

  • Brent Yen

    It just seems like teams still in “Dare Lin to shoot” mode especially when he is coming off a screen.

  • blubell

    Kobe post game interview

  • JoeTeam

    so, LAL do high PnR, and teams give him room to pull-up?

  • Maknusia

    Credit to McHale there,,, he deserves the credit, though

  • Brent Yen

    Yes…he is known for his drive…

  • Brent Yen

    Not just on top of the key tho…that is in general true. Lin is too quick that even defender keep half or one step awaym he still can get to the spots he wants. This advantage will be gone after Lin passed his prime.

  • JoeTeam

    ok, I get it. Yes, if Lin just keep working in his pull-up and fadeaway, he would be generating his own space. I see thanks.

  • JoeTeam

    so, visually, I’m seeing what you mean by his Linsanity pull-back jumper against the Timberwolves, I think. It was almost like a crossover and had about 15 feet of separation.

    Tonight, I was really bummed when Randle (iirc) didn’t kick out to a wide open Lin at the practiced HOU 3spot.

  • Brent Yen

    But I guess his focus is not there right now….let’s just keep healthy and work on it in summer.

  • Brent Yen

    Randle is like those players who set the play 1st in their mind, then they go……so. Kind of like a fake read and react.

  • JoeTeam

    Yes, when Lin is with his team, his focus is getting the team going. It’s quite a responsibility. It’s less draining with good coaching and a vet like Kobe next to him.

  • blubell

    It is not the first time Randle ignored Jeremy…

  • JoeTeam

    I’ll see what you mean as the season goes along. I’m not watching any non-lin minutes because on the west coast, it’s family time and I’m in trouble as it is doing my work lol.

  • JoeTeam

    yeah, and that one wow he was so open.

  • blubell

    Not 100% sure but Randle got benched after that…

  • JoeTeam

    lol, funny. A coach with accountability maybe.

  • blubell

    He’s still young and long ways to go.

  • blubell

    Yup. MVP chants for Jeremy.

    — — Back in after missing three games and the chemistry with Davis was there from their first possession together. Glad they had him on the floor tonight because the offense was pretty clueless at times. He was the only one able to organize anything semi-consistently. I’m sure he will work his way into the starting lineup. I’d prefer to see them iron out wrinkles now versus when the regular season comes. Lin eventually fouled out in this game on a phantom foul in the final seconds, so no overtime for him. Which is a bummer…with Kobe sitting to close that, Lin would have been taking over from there. That would have been fun. “Jeremy Lin makes a big difference,” Kobe said. Jeremy’s dealing with the bad wheels. He looked mobile and generally active. Considering that, his D was pretty respectable. He gave up a late drive, but he battled pretty well all things considered. It seemed like a lot more than 5 assists in this game, one or two of those passes led to FTs. “I thought he looked good. A little rusty in the first half,” Scott said. Lin did an excellent job drawing fouls and getting to the line 10 times in just 24 minutes. The combo of Kobe and Lin drawing fouls will help the team as a whole. He led the team with a +12. “I feel like I feel great and will be ready to go tomorrow,” he said. He said he thinks maybe the refs aren’t use to him being an attacking defender and playing that style. I think if the team develops that rep as a whole (which is what they look like they want to do), then that will help him in that regard.

    The Stats:

    He scored 15 points on 3-5 shooting (1-3 from three, 8-10 from the line to go with 4 boards, 5 assists, 2 steals and 6 fouls in 24 minutes. He was a +12.

    The Action:

    First possession and he set up Davis for FTs on the bounce pass. Great reach from behind to strip his man and it led to a Laker breakaway. With the shotclock low, he backed it out, attacked off the Davis screen and fed him for a layup. He was nearly stripped, recovered the ball, attacked and drew FTs in the paint, he made both. He drew FTs after tracking down a rebound and trying to turn it up court, he missed both, however. He attacked the lane with speed and drew FTs getting tripped up, he made both this time. He swiped a pass in transition to prevent a breakaway. He worked the ball to Hill in some traffic off the two-man game for a score. He zipped a pass to Boozer cutting into the lane for an easy score. He ran into Thomas’s legs on a challenge at the end of the half to give up FTs. He missed a long heave 60 feet out. He had 4 points, 3 assists and 2 steals at the half.

    Second Half: He sank a pull-up 18-footer from the wing. He worked the two-man game and lobbed it to Davis for the dunk. He curled into the lane with speed and took it into the heart of the D under the hoop to earn FTs, he made both. Sweet no-look read to his main man, Davis, in transition for a dunk (the D was totally caught off guard). He swished a long three up against the shotclock. Out of a timeout, he blew past Thomas and finger rolled in a layup down the middle of the D. He drew two fouls on one possession to put the Suns in the penalty, he made both FTs. He missed a long three behind Boozer. Wow, phantom foul with 11.5 seconds left, fouling Lin out and giving up two FTs up by 3.

    I am waving back at the banana.

  • Lin is the 2nd Banana after Kobe after this Linsightful game for Laker fans! :p

  • blubell

    You’re out of control with the Lin puns lately. It is time we have a………….. Lintervention 😛

  • no worries. We’ll continue to experiment in regular season games :]
    @real_dsb:disqus has good criteria to evaluate their effectiveness

    I also feel Disqus allows more well-thought analysis and nice summarization of good comments through “Best Votes”

    We might need to experiment with “ShoutBox”-like chat on the side of Disqus comments (Sidebar) rather than inside the post which feels separate from Disqus

  • For tomorrow’s Game+Chat, we might experiment “ShoutBox”-like chat on the side of Disqus comments (Sidebar) rather than inside the post. Currently Chat feels like separate from Disqus because you can’t see them both.

    Hopefully, this will allow us to post well-thought long analysis in Disqus but allow us to yell/shout/cheer at the Chat box!

  • Maknusia

    great….thanks…lets experiment it as part of preseason exercise! 🙂

  • well, you successfully Lintegrated me to be mindful in my Linning Lingo :>
    It’s simply Lin-sational!

  • blubell

    Well, that was Lincessant use of Lin puns.

  • blubell
  • Once you Lin, you can’t go back :]
    It’s Lin-conceivable!

  • I like how 2 reporters cautioned Jeremy to be careful in answering questions about fouling out :]
    You can tell they have a certain level of comfort with Jeremy and likes him.
    He’s in a good place now :>

    Hahaha thanks! This made my day more fun. I’m a bit disappointed it’s not the dancing banana but at least it’s a banana.

    Wes Johnson with a fainted banana.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Bananas are yummy and good energy boosters, especially for athletes 😉

    In the case of Wes though, his banana fainted…

  • AllKpop<3Ailee'sBoobies

    That was for Kobe

  • 7iger

    I build pc as a hobby so my wife can’t possibly hide all my pc.

  • The scattered MVP chants could very well be for Kobe or Lin.
