P08 SAC @ LAL Post Game

Photo credit: http://www.nba.com/lakers/gallery/lakers-vs.-kings-10/24/14

MIN FGM-A 3PM-A FTM-A REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
32 6-12 2-6 5-6 1 7 1 0 3 5 0 19

*Note that one of the 3 pt attempts was a 35-ft desperation shot because his teammate passed him the ball with 1 second left.


 

I genuinely was not happy at all when Price had his two knee collisions. 1) Price is a good guy, I have no ill wishes towards him. 2) I wanted to see how Scott genuinely played Lin, not because he had to. 3) I didn’t want to see Lin play 40 mins in preseason and risk injury (which he almost did when Rudy Gay fell onto his ankle).

Scoring: A. Lin did his usual thing. Blowing by defenders, splitting 2 defenders and scoring on Cousins. In Q2 9:00, Lin wound down the shot clock and calmly drove in for the score like an alpha dog. Lin scored 9 pts in his first 12 mins in the game. Lin did one of his circle drives, but left handed this time, finishing with a 10 foot fadeaway jumper. In Q4, he had a killer crossover on McCallum.

Passing: A-. Lin had a Nash-like pass where he dropped it off behind his back no look to Davis (but Davis was fouled on the dunk). He should have had 3 more gimme assists, but Davis missed a couple dunks or got fouled. Lin did have a couple turnovers from bad passes/miscommunication.

Defense: B. Collison didn’t do anything against Lin. He rarely attempted to drive on Lin. Mostly just passed the ball. Sessions was more aggressive and did drive a couple times on Lin. I noticed that no one attempted to pick Lin when he was bringing the ball up. That’s a sign that they respect Lin’s ballhandling and are afraid that he’ll blow past them if they try to go for a steal.

IQ: A. Lin always knew the shot clock. There were several times where you gasped at Lin’s shot selection, then realized that he got the ball with a second left and had to take a shot. The announcers praised Lin all throughout the game. They called him confident and under control.

Overall: A-. Jeremy saved his best preseason game for last. There is no question who is the best PG on this team. Lin by far. Final preseason stats:

Player GP MIN PTS/36 AST/36 REB/36 STL/36 AST/TO FG% 3P% eFG% FT% TS% PPS
Jeremy Lin 5 129.6 17.2 8.6 4.2 1.1 2.8 0.500 0.400 0.556 0.759 0.636 1.7
Ronnie Price 7 179.3 9.8 6.6 2.4 2.2 1.9 0.400 0.200 0.433 0.714 0.479 1.1

 

P.S. The starting lineup for this game was: Price, Ellington, Sacre, Davis, Wes Johnson. That tells me that the preseason starting lineups don’t mean jack because most of those guys are second unit.


Brent’s take

@realdsb basically said it all, I will just add a few more.

  • Lin’s handle is great, it comes with the added support from the team and his hard work in the summer. Very happy to see, no fancy moves, just percision and get the job done. Still it will be shaky from time to time, just like shooting. But I believe he stepped up a lot in this regard.
  • Cohesion is still not there, But it takes time. Right now, able to make jumpers actually covered a lot of problems for them as a team. 3 Asts Lin got were from Sacre where I would not count on him to knock down those in the real game.
  • Wes and Clarkson seems able to knock down 3s when needed, I guess it is a good thing for LAL.
  • Need to repeat this, I really really hate to see Price’s injury. But I guess we can still wait and see what Scott will do after he comes back. Lin needs a capable back up and I think Price is good enough.
  • Lin is a big guard, I hope he get some post play too…..

I will give him an A-. I think in those 4 preseason games, he performed pretty equally in terms of impact and that is the only thing important.

    Preseason Advance Stats – Lakers

  • Excellent Analysis, real-dsb!

    “Confident and Under-Control” sounds like the theme I heard over and over again from announcers and Lin fans post

  • Arsenium12 .

    Here’s the review of Lin’s performance from LakersGround[dot]net:

    Lin —
    — With Nash out, this is Kobe and Jeremy’s team now. Boozer and Price will provide some vet leadership, but the offense will be led by these two. I think this is the situation Lin has been in need of since NY. A vet leader at his side to mentor him and enough experience under his belt to play with both consistency and control, Jeremy could have an excellent season. I really wish he could have been in the battle with Nash. That would have helped him a lot. Hopefully, Nash will be in his ear quite a bit. Tonight, Jeremy led the team in scoring and assists with Kobe out. With Price down, Jeremy was in the mix early. He attacked
    the paint and hit from the perimeter. On one highlight, he slammed on the brakes in the lane, crossed over between his legs and went the other direction for a layup. After the game, however, he was still thinking about the end of the game. “Hit that freethrow, get that rebound,” Lin said. Lin’s only miss of the game from the line came with 10 seconds left. Lakers haven’t looked good in those situations thus far. Got to close the door shut.

    The Stats: He scored 19 points on 6-12 shooting (2-6 from three, 5-6 from the line) to go with 7 assists, 1 board, 1 steal, 3 turnovers and 5 fouls in 32 minutes. He had a +/- of 0.

    The Action: Quick attack slicing through the D after running a two-man game out of the corner. He got the shooter’s touch on a wing three after nearly throwing a pass away. He set up Sacre for the elbow jumper off the bounce pass. He pushed up the break and dropped a bounce pass off to Davis behind him for FTs. He missed a wing three behind a screen. He missed a wing three. He attacked the lane with speed, took contact and drew FTs, he made both. He iso’d with the clock down, attacked past his man to his right and scored the layup. He threw a pass out of bounds getting the wires crossed. He hit Smith running the floor for a layup. He had 9 points on 3-5 shooting and 3 assists at the half. Second Half: He missed a 35+ foot three trying to beat the shotclock. He probed baseline, circled into the lane and somehow made a jumper when he was expecting a foul call that didn’t come. He threaded a bounce pass to Davis in the post for a reverse layup. He saw a bunch of open real estate in front of him as he brought the ball up, attacked it and drew FTs as the D scrambled to recover, he made both. He attacked the
    offensive zone with speed and hit Davis for the easy jumper. He attacked, hung and just missed the layup. He missed a three from the top of the arc. Wicked cross-over between his legs as he stopped on a dime in the lane, changed directions and scored the layup. He swished a wing three on the kickout from Ellington. He sliced through the D and somehow got a layup up and Davis came in to tap it in as it came off the rim (that’s what dribble penetration will do). He wound the clock down with
    the floor spaced, blew past his man and was fouled on the layup attempt with 10 seconds left, he made just one FT.

    That’s a strong, defining sentiment to begin the review: “With Nash out, this is Kobe and Jeremy’s team now.”

  • lleepar

    Two-guard system?”
    This may be old news to most of you. But I really haven’t fully understood the point guard’s position in Scott’s offensive schemes. But I caught a phrase used by Coach Miller in this brief Access Sportnet clip where Miller mentioned Scott’s “two-guard system” where either guard can initiate the offense [link]. (It’s in the last 20 seconds of the clip.)

    That could explain some of the rookie actions we’ve seen on the court — at least in the case of Clarkson. Apparently, Clarkson is playing SG along with Jeremy’s PG position, Clarkson is just as entitled by Scott’s system to start the offense as Jeremy is. (Have I missed something?)

    Of course, that doesn’t explain Randle’s behavior. But I have this vague recollection of an after-practice interview with Randle (very early in workout camp) where he told the reporter that Scott wanted him to do more of this coast-to-coast stuff on his own. But, as I said, it’s just a vague recollection, and I may have misinterpreted.

    I know Lin fans have had some discussions about the Coach and/or Kobe reining the rooks. But the alternative is wondering whether their “ignoring the point guard” behavior is just them behaving according to their instructions.

  • real-dsb

    that’s espn highlight worthy

  • real-dsb

    that’s nothing. McHale had a 5 guard system. LOL

  • SamC89

    I’ve noticed that he’s being using is left hand a lot this pre-season!

  • webattorney

    Good review. I also was not happy that Price got injured because I really wanted to see who Byron Scott would choose if both Price and Lin were healthy. I don’t really put too much emphasis on Lin blowing by his defenders because Sessions also blew by him. Any good PG in NBA will blow by his defender if there is a single coverage.

  • Brent Yen

    Been saying that, his ball control is at a different level now. Nothing fancy, just the precision.

  • Brent Yen

    HAHAHAHAHA yeah exactly

  • Brent Yen

    It is called a 2 guard front system. Basically the PG and SG plays the same way in this system. A very traditional system

  • real-dsb

    If you take out Lin’s two desperation heaves (one was 3/4 court at the end of a half, another was a 35 ft attempt because he got the ball with 1 second left), then he was 18-34 FG, 4-8 3PT for the preseason:

    53% fg, 50% 3pt, 59% eFG, 66% TS, 1.8 PPS

  • Brent Yen

    His stats was even better in the beginning of last season I think. Again Lin came out of the gate balling!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    I wish there will be one game where Lin just kept tap his head calling for a screen and ISO…LOL might be fun to watch. 😛 maybe not

  • real-dsb

    Yeah, I think that’s the fear on the back of Lin fan’s minds. Last year, Lin played exceptional in preseason and the beginning of the season, but got benched for no good reason. We will see.

  • Brent Yen

    that injury did not help either……was it his back? can’t remember.

  • real-dsb

    does Price blow by his defenders?

  • Maknusia

    he jumps over!

  • After all these injuries decimating Lakers guards (Swaggy, Nash, Ellington, Price, etc.), I have to admit Lin’s health is the #1 priority in this contract year. He can’t afford not to play many games because he hasn’t earned the trust with his new coach and teammates.

    Never mind if Byron has bias or not, D’Antoni was the same way in not trusting Lin before Linsanity happened.

    This year, it will be the case of “the Last Man Standing” to be the hero for Lakers.
    Laker fans would appreciate 82 games of 15p/7ast over 40 games of 20p/10asts!

    Jeremy, please use your floaters! :>

  • Maknusia

    True….reposting my earlier post

    The problem here, as an outsider view on JL brings

    1) ALL the
    positive hype, that he can playmake, facilitates well, makes his
    teammates involved, he can drive to basket at will, hit jumpers, cant go
    left, not a good defensive player
    – status…thus far, he had proven he can do it

    2)
    All the negative hype he brings, he is not consistent, looses focus,
    bad handle (recently he was ranking 15th in handles!), high TOV, etc

    these are the perception created, and Lin need to constantly brush this
    away from views, NBA and coach’s thought; work in progress, pretty sure
    by all star there would be people who saying right opposite of those

    When
    a new coach takes over, the expectation really builds up, foremost when
    one coaches huge organization such as Lakers. They tend to go with
    safer approach with known variables and slowly build the roster with
    proving from game to game.

    That was even my own experience coaching soccer and birdie at mid school level

    Hence, I would give time for the plate to turn, and JL needs to keep up his game, like today’s

    Looks like thats the reason Scott is going with vets and I could be wrong as well. Time will tell

  • I remember the back was after All-Star break. Not sure if it was also his back in early season

  • Maknusia

    Probably he is too involved in adapting to new players and system, and havent settled down yet. Pretty sure it will come, he worked on it though

  • no, but apparently enough to blow Byron’s minds

  • Cookiemole

    Started with the sprained knee (collision with Paul milsap). Then the back spasms (collision with David lee)

  • JoeTeam

    Now there you go, an A-. I’m with you now 🙂 FWIW

  • JoeTeam

    last night looked like 1 guard when Lin was on the court, and as Brent said, it was too much usage. Too much of that can deaden a guy, because during the lulls in the game say 10 pts up with minutes to grind, you can go to sleep. So adding that usage diversity is very important to keep the guys fresh.

  • JoeTeam

    unrelated, that last iso last night was nice to see. Old Lin back in the saddle. He got fouled and missed 1 FT. I would like to see him finish it (he had a chance for sure) and do the and1. Game would have been out of reach even with the pushdown.

    Exciting year ahead …

  • JoeTeam

    Hi psalm, a suggestion for in-forum posting … consider removing things on the page. All that other stuff is distracting, and when in forum mode, it’s convos. Don’t need schedules, who’s on, news links, etc etc. Just convos. That way, in-forum discussions and page reloads are not delayed, and it will feel cleaner. Just a thought, not meant to give you a headache. This experience is very much better than redit, but it’s also hard to get pms going and I’m going to bet once the season starts, there will be lots of chances to pm to discuss more details (and as this community grows, people will naturally want to pm from time-to-time. So, easy access to pm would be nice. Convos, PM. There’s the beef. I sense you are going to do great here, because .net has become a catch-all and the polar discussions there are ok to know the whole of JLin. But it can be distracting too. I used to go to CF for the polar views, and go to .net to talk about Lin. Now I come here, and go to .net to get the polar views. Ironic, now it goes on the web.).

  • I created a post “Jeremy Lin: A Perennial Underdog NBA Star”

  • JoeTeam

    nice to see analysts talking about Lin’s ‘progress’ when we knew it was there and just being suppressed. The more analysts ‘uncover’ in Lin, the more institutional bball and fans will want Lin to lead.

    This is why he should start.

  • good idea, JoeTeam. I’m trying to hide these widgets when inside posts. Some can’t be hidden so let me see which one I can clean up.

    In terms of performance, it’s actually loaded once and be stored as cache so it shouldn’t affect the page refresh time too much but I agree less clutter is better for user experience.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Lakers trim their roster. Mike Trudell also notes that with Steve Nash out for the season, Young out until December and Xavier Henry uncertain, the Lakers will have 12 players for the opener if Ronnie Price and Ryan Kelly are ready.

  • webattorney

    Yeah, he could have won the game by finishing the shot when he got fouled there at the end and making FT.

  • webattorney

    Read my post again. I said “good” PG in NBA. Obviously, Price is not a “good” PG, which is why he should not start. Essentially, almost all starting caliber PGs in NBA can blow by any single coverage. Jeremy is included on the list. Price is NOT a starting caliber PG.

  • k.smith

  • Kobe: “Jeremy is a LOT faster than what I thought he’s going to be. He’s very athletic .. The last game in Ontario, he was giving this incredible effort on the defensive end of the floor… he’s harrassing guards, being very physical, getting in the passing lanes”

  • John Lee

    Nice to see Kobe back up Lin’s D. Kind of undermine’s Scott’s justification for starting Price.

  • Christina

    Great article!!! Thank you for your dedication and hard work in supporting Jeremy Lin. Just thought about another thing to be listed – His triple doubles in less than 30 minutes was the first in NBA history since 19??, something like that.
    God Bless.

  • blubell

    Welcome, Christina!
    @psalm234:disqus is indeed dedicated and hard working 🙂

  • yeah, it definitely showed a gap between Kobe and Byron in evaluating Lin’s defense. Kobe has been surprisingly consistent to talk up Jeremy’s D and be his mentor (definitely intentional on his part) while Byron has been mostly silent but praised Price’s defensive skill.

    Scenario:
    1. They could either play good cop & bad cop to push everyone to be at their best.
    2. Or they could simply disagree.

    I guess we’re about to find out which when Price becomes healthy.

  • Thank you and welcome, Christina :]
    Yes, it was very rare. I remember it was only done 3 time for under 30 min.
    I should look it up and add it there.

    God bless you too and Lin in the upcoming season… starting with Oct 28 vs the Rox!
    We better start prayin’ and fastin’ for a Lincredible outcome haha..

  • thanks :] Lin Fans deserve only the best!

  • I just visited and boy … you gave the right description. Half posts got dominated by bickering and the other half on BB discussion plus plea to stop fighting. There was still 1 or 2 good posts.

  • SamC89

    I’m hoping it’s because Byron actually knows how good Lin can be, but is trying to massage Kobe’s ego because we all know who really “runs the team” right now.

    Hopefully that’s the best case scenario. I dunno, after the horrors of Houston, I just want to give some people the benefit of the doubt for now. Not every coach can be this clueless right?

    So as long as Kobe is high on Lin and the LA media is as well I’m ok with it for now.

  • SamC89

    I feel if he really wanted to and took over in the last few minutes they could have won the game.

    But he felt the need to involve his teammates more and so they ended up like Scott said, “playing not to lose.”

  • it is definitely bizarre move by Byron which could be attributed to increase PG competition or challenge Lin/Price to get better. Byron/Kobe also pulled similar moves to push Randle’s button.

    So let’s hope Kobe/Byron played good cop/bad cop. Lin’s stats completely trounced Price so it was hard to make any BB justification to start Price. I want to see game situation & Lin’s practice time with starters before making up my mind on Byron.

    I’m surprised at how classy Kobe has been regarding Lin. He’s fairly critical and not easily impressed, Lin must’ve given Kobe quite an impression. Kudos to Kobe for negating the “eye test” (ethnicity) and taking the 38-pt loss in stride. He calls talent as he sees it, that’s rare in today’s NBA, where many are still trying to cover up for the blunder of missing Linsanity.

  • Kobe is definitely an excellent litmus test regarding Lin’s talent.

    He always speaks his mind and is at the point in his career that he can say whatever he wants (i.e. owner’s increased revenue with new TV deal) after 19 years and 5 rings.

    And in the last 2-3 years of his career, he will get what he wants to complete his legacy with the Lakers. If Kobe says Lin is part of the big picture, it should happen :]
