Preseason1 CHA @ ORL Game Thread

Finally, the first preseason game will start against Orlando Magic.

What does Coach Clifford expect to accomplish in the first game?
1. Will he give some time for 1st team and 2nd team to gel with one another to develop chemistry?
2. Or will he start to experiment with different lineups as he said with various Pick-And-Roll combination in the perimeter with any 2 of three playmakers (Kemba, Nic Batum and Jeremy Lin)
3. And what kind of lineup will he use to close the game?

It will be interesting if Coach Clifford will also use the time to test if some new players in the Training Camp are good enough to keep around.

Let’s hope for the best for Jeremy to have fun with new teammates & develop great chemistry with 2nd and 1st team.

  • BuzzerBeater

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS at some basketball action finally!
    Noooooooooooooooooo at it not being televised, Im so mad 🙁

    The other game (Pels/Pacers) wont be televised either, what kind of outrage!?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Suppose to concentrate on the worship of our almighty God:-) Still send my prayers to JLin and the team anyhow:-)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    They did it on purpose so that we couldn’t see the beginning of a new lineup that doesn’t work. Again my conspiracy theory. LOL

  • Alain Gervais

    the stats will tell regardless. and radio people

  • Rick Johnson

    Any website to stream the audio? The WFNZ site isn’t saying anything regarding the game.

  • Alain Gervais

    lol another one. lol orlando wanted the game to themselves selfish lol. but lin fiends never quit

  • blueCypher

    I see, it is not an official tv broadcast

  • BuzzerBeater

    Yeah it looks like its just gonna be what the (Magic) arena shows in their big scoreboard. This is torture lol

  • Yascar

    Just tweeted it.

  • blueCypher

    Yup, no color commentating

  • Alain Gervais

    listen to the radio at same time

  • Ben Johnson

    Color commentary is back it seems

  • Grace Nsns

    Thanks!

  • Alain Gervais

    yes

  • Alain Gervais

  • Alain Gervais

    i don’t have it and i have LP

  • I am The Jason

    The best color commentary is this forum. Thx 🙂

  • Alain Gervais

    hornets don’t look good. this is orlando of all teams

  • Ulysses Modder

    This Hornets need to have Lin starting

  • MoominFloren

    Hmm….the difference between international & us LP?

  • nice find 🙂

  • Alain Gervais

    don’t think so.

  • wandertheglobe

    Batum 1/4 FG so far….KW just air ball

  • zxcvb

    Lin isn’t listed in the ESPN boxscore. Is he inactive this game?

    Clifford said that some vets wouldn’t play both games.

  • blubell

    They’re playing on international LP but not US it seems.

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin is not in but lamb is in

  • Alain Gervais

    maybe he won’t play today

  • blueCypher

    I think Lin is not playing today

  • Michael

    No….Aww alright. Thanks mate.

  • Alain Gervais

    1-7 4 point batum.

  • MoominFloren

    I’m hoping to see Lin.Come on coach…..his hair not gel …..not playing today?

  • Alain Gervais

    maybe walker plays whole 1st quarter

  • BuzzerBeater

    Lamb and Zeller in.
    So far I see some decent ball movement, they’re bricking them, especially Batum but they havent been bad forced shots. They certainly seem to be running a much faster system than last season when it looked like they were playing in molasses.

  • MoominFloren

    Maybe….no gel no headband…>.<

  • zxcvb

    Looks like Lin is resting today and playing big minutes tomorrow. Makes sense.

    Clifford said some vets will sit out today or tomorrow. No need to play both games of a preseason back-to-back.

  • blueCypher

    This ridiculous camera angle prevents us from seeing the bench, haha

  • Alain Gervais

    in about to go inl

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin is in

  • Alain Gervais

    why is everything threw batum

  • MoominFloren

    Hope im wrong

  • blubell

    The hair… 🙂

  • blueCypher

    Lol, that hair is funny. keep it

  • blubell

    Ouch.

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin got his pocket picked by cj watson

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin for 3

  • zxcvb

    Lin is in! TO followed by a 3! Ha.

  • Alain Gervais

    let lin get rust off

  • Grace Nsns

    Oh I missed that, was that a dribble 3 or a C&S?

  • zxcvb

    Another drive and FTs. He got angry about that TO.

  • Alain Gervais

    foul 2 ft

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin or Lamb got the 3?

  • Alain Gervais

    lllllove the hairl

  • Ben Johnson

    hate it!

  • Alain Gervais

    looks like classic jackie chan hair cut

  • Rick Johnson

    Scoreboard says Lamb. SMH going to be hard this season.

  • blueCypher

    keep this hair, troll everybody

  • zxcvb

    Was that Lamb or Lin? Announcer said Lin, boxscore said Lin. Jumbotron didn’t show it.

  • Alain Gervais

    lamp 3 point

  • Alain Gervais

    pnr a lot lol good

  • Ben Johnson

    yup

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin gave Zeller the ball under the basket and missed the bunny

  • zxcvb

    Lin and Zeller already. FTs.

  • very glad to see that

  • Alain Gervais

    foul 2 ft

  • zxcvb

    They seem confused. They said Lin made a 3 but it was Lamb. And they said Hawes missed the bunny from Lin, but it was Zeller.

  • blubell
  • Alain Gervais

    zeller not haws

  • blubell
  • Michael

    Commentators are in preseason mode.

  • Pete Roces

    any decent link for the game?

  • blubell

    See below… there are a few.

  • Alain Gervais

    very happy with how lin was used. starters have work to do

  • zxcvb
  • Ulysses Modder

    The team Hornets with lin is a good team

  • David Ly

    Screenshot from uber-illegal videostream.

  • Pete Roces

    Thanks

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin made his first TO the moment he got the rebound.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    was that an assist?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    First Assist to Hawes/

  • zxcvb

    Lamb too selfish so far. Lin likes to set up teammates early on. Esp. in preseason.

  • zxcvb

    LOL. Even in preseason, everyone fouls the Asian guy HARD. Anyone else, and they’d let him score since it’s meaningless.

  • Rick Johnson

    Well it’s good to see Lin being used correctly as a PG and getting foul calls.

  • wandertheglobe

    risky move for preseason

  • nice hand by Lin to challenge his man to miss jumpshot

  • zxcvb

    3pts on 0 FGA. Infinity efficiency!

  • Alain Gervais

    lin didnt shoot yet

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What is Hairstone doing except fouling?
    Why is he even on the court?

  • Grace Nsns

    ??

  • LimitedEdition

    Lin already destroying the opponent’s defence by getting to the paint so easily

  • pandaboy99

    Looks like clifford letting lin run the pick and roll

  • Alain Gervais

    since it preseason idk how to look at the defense

  • blubell

    double teamed?

  • LimitedEdition

    Well, he is the best player and the biggest threat on the 2nd team

  • blubell

    33333!!!

  • JW

    Lin 3

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    First Zeller-Lin connection.

  • Michael

    yes

  • Grace Nsns

    long 2, 🙁

  • blubell

    Assist!

  • Grace Nsns

    It was a 3, lol

  • BuzzerBeater

    This Jeremy Lin, Jeremy Lamb calling is going to drive me nuts! its sounds the same on my bootleg streams lol

  • blueCypher

    lol

  • pandaboy99

    lin is playing his game!

  • Lin’s 2nd assist to Hairston on the corner

  • pandaboy99

    clifford must be happy

  • Michael

    Limb

  • blubell

    Yes, very confusing…

  • blueCypher

    you guys, the hair = swag. keep it the whole season 🙂

  • Grace Nsns

    Jeremy missed another 3, but catching up, not bad.

  • Alain Gervais

    yesss

  • Alain Gervais

    its ok

  • This is good. Teammates give the ball to Lin to create.
    Lin finds his teammates to score.

    Good Bball for JLin fans 🙂

  • BuzzerBeater

    lol

  • blubell
  • Michael

    As long as the next 50 go in….am I asking for too much.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What worries me is the turnover.

  • JW

    Hornets seems a bit rusty with this 1st pre season game.

  • Rick Johnson

    I want to see some Lin / Hansbrough

  • LimitedEdition

    Lin looking really good so far, remember he has not even gone Super Saiyan (his hair) today

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Charlotte’s bench against Magic’s starting 4

  • blubell
  • Alain Gervais

    lol they doubled lin lol 3

  • blubell

    another assist!

  • ORL Announcer: “Good pressure on Lin who has been hurting the Magic”

  • blubell

    They’re saying good things about Jeremy 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is the only playmaker on the court now.

  • zxcvb

    Neither official scorer or ORL announcers know what is going on. They’re wrong on every CHA basket call.

  • BuzzerBeater

    they’re sharing the ball, playing good defense, letting Jeremy play PG….is it too soon to be a little optimistic?

  • 7iger

    Yes, it is

  • blubell

    Good job, Jeremy!

  • pandaboy99

    lin got the lead down to 3

  • JustSayNo2HardensIso

    Jeremy played great. Very proud. Multiple pick and rolls for him. Right when Kemba came in, he turned the ball over.

  • JJ Hui

    Thanks everyone for the game posting! I am out of the country, no access to nba games, so i am relying this and nothing else!
    Go Lin!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    in played great. wow how much did lin get to play his game last year . finallyl

  • BuzzerBeater

    🙁 I’ll keep my optimism on hold for now than!

  • David Ly

    http://goatd.net/121806/watch-charlotte-hornets-vs-orlando-magic

    You can watch with this link. I am watching from amsterdam.

  • Alain Gervais

    LP didn’t show the game lol

  • blubell

    6pts, 4asts, 2 rebs, 10 min.

  • pandaboy99

    6 pts 4 assist in 10 mins some good stats

  • Alain Gervais

    yep yep lol

  • JJ Hui

    I did not buy LP!

  • blubell
  • Alain Gervais

    i did 🙁

  • Rick Johnson

    Hasn’t been used properly for 3 years. I’m sure he’s rusty and just warming up.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    2nd

  • Alain Gervais

    yep

  • zxcvb

    Yep. The “Lin effect.” Make or miss, he’s a huge positive if you let him PLAY.

  • Dorothy
  • pandaboy99

    dont forget all the fouls he drew

  • Alain Gervais

    this day has been a roller coaster. lol like a normal day as a lin fan. but it feels good right now.

  • John Lee

    That’d be 18/12 if he gets 30 min, elite PG numbers!!!

  • blueCypher

    i wanna see lin play with kaminsky

  • Alain Gervais

    i don’t think h*** play today

  • zxcvb

    Exactly. He “stopped the bleeding” as well. Kemba and Batum stunk it up.

  • blueCypher

    ya, it looks like he is not playing today. i meant some time in the future

  • blubell

    Oh no, hope MKG is ok.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Ugh MKG please no! Get up 🙁

  • pandaboy99

    I think the big takeway from this game is that clifford and his offensive schemes is not going to be a hindrance this year for lin.

  • zxcvb

    I wanna see if Kemba and Lin can play together. Elfrid has no fear of Walker.

    BTW, Lin is ESPN’s “top performer” for Charlotte in just 10m. Typical!

  • wandertheglobe

    I like what I see so far for Lin. He gets to play PG.

  • yes, JLin is allowed & encouraged to be the playmaker with the 2nd team when he’s on the floor

  • JJ Hui

    Haha next time dont buy. If i am home in US, i use my laptop window but outside the US, i only carrying my Apple thingy, it has no access 🙁

  • blubell
  • pandaboy99

    Its also clear from the way lins teammates pass that they arent looking for their own shot they are looking for the best shot

  • Michael

    Ugh…

  • Plus the extended play of time from late Q1 to Q2 with 3 min left was good to develop rhythm.
    The 2nd team made some run after Lin warmed up

  • Alain Gervais

    boy

  • blueCypher

    i didnt see what happened, is it knee ?

  • just 1st preseason game w/ new teammates, I think

  • Michael

    Landed on his shoulder.

  • Alain Gervais

    kemba 0-5

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Where’s Tyler?

  • zxcvb

    I like MKG…he’s one of the early/only allies of Lin. KHuang doesn’t like his game, but I think he’s a nice unselfish role player. Overpaid but nice to have.

  • blubell

    yup, with 4 assists.

  • pandaboy99

    i saw hawes pass to lin multiple times to run the pnr… unlike jordan hill whod take a 20 footer or young who brick a 3 or jordan clarkson who dribble into traffic and jack up a jumpsshot

  • Yellow

    Did I hear it correctly that the Orlando announcers say Walker hasn’t made a shot and he’s over..?

  • Alain Gervais

    what i like he hasn’t forced a shot. but datum seem to be the pg for the starters

  • JJ Hui

    Who?

  • Rick Johnson

    MKG

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Just stay off Kemba guys, this is the first pre-season game. Go Hornets.

  • Michael

    MKG landed like this.

  • zxcvb

    I’m only 99% joking when I say that Lin’s hair is hurting him. How could that monstrosity not effect his vision, ha!

  • Alain Gervais

    ofcouse

  • wandertheglobe

    It seems Batum is first option, taken 11 shots, made 4, 11pts. KW is 0-5 FG, 2-2 FT with 2 points

  • JJ Hui

    Tq

  • JLin Stats in 1st half: 6pts/4a/2r/2TO in only 10 min
    Very aggressive with highest 4 FT attempts

  • Rick Johnson
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    We’ll speak out together once Lin is mistreated but now Lin is very happy.

  • blueCypher

    hope it is nothing serious

  • JAD2456

    0-5.
    4 assists, same as Lin

  • zxcvb

    Make or miss, my issues with Kemba are not preseason-related. Dude is a 38% shooter in a weak East and total freedom. No way he should be a starting PG in the NBA.

  • Alain Gervais

    still i wanna see if he can score 15 points without 15 shots

  • JustSayNo2HardensIso

    exactly!

  • linspiredinla

    where is this link?

  • pandaboy99

    that means batum moves to the 3 and lin moves to shooting guard

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s still the team starting pg, let focus on Lin doing well at the same time respect his teammates.

  • zxcvb

    Batum doesn’t belong at SG. He’s a great glue-guy SF. At the 2, his offense and defense both suffer. He’s never even played SG in his pro bball life!

  • JW

    Crazy that they don’t have a dedicated reporter for Hornets. It’s a professional team.

  • TTNN

    wow, this guy was “hearing second-hand”…… Well stuck with him reporting hornects this year. 🙁

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I will put 100% effort on Lin doing well and healthy. What happens to MKG is a wake up call to anyone.

  • I’d like to see Lin close out he game with the 1st team.
    But Clifford might opt to play 2nd or 3rd team in a meaningless preseason game

  • wandertheglobe

    Big blow if it’s serious.

  • zxcvb

    I don’t diss him outside of J-Lin forums. This is our space to vent.

  • wandertheglobe

    He’s not at the game, covering college football. It’s only preseason.

  • Yellow

    I agree!

  • TTNN

    Glad today Lin got good min without Batum and Kemba, and run offense by himself. I like.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Batum does his SG stuff.
    Kemba didn’t shoot well as the PG.

  • Rick Johnson
  • JW

    the way coach talked comparing to curry and kyle, perhaps walker’s defender is a bit aggressive so Batum gets more opportunity.

  • Yellow

    again, I agree!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Never know who’s here.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hairston got a lot of minutes. He should thank Lin for giving him the open 3.

  • TTNN

    I know he is not at game. Heard a lot of complain from Hornets fans about him already.

  • JAD2456

    Didn’t notice Hawes has 2 assists!

  • CJSHYY

    It’s preseason they want to see who they can keep…

  • JW

    he did his job staying at the corner waiting for lin to break down the defense

  • Alain Gervais

    also mkg injury

  • yes, I saw all his teammates looked for him early to start offense .. Goooood 🙂

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Zeller better figures out fast why he’s there as a big man.

  • blubell

    So we saw PG Jeremy in the first half. Will we see SG Jeremy in the second half?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I believe it’s what gonna be as the season moves along.

  • Alain Gervais

    for some it was japanese algebra lol …. who said that once upon a time

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    His lone assist is to Lin.

  • TTNN

    so all his FGA were 3pt?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Of course! With Kemba bricking all his shots.

  • blubell

    Please don’t bring up bad memories 😛

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Good eyes, I must have missed that as the steam was off and on.

  • zxcvb

    I want to see him play with Kemba. Make or miss, let’s see if they can ball together.

  • Alain Gervais

    lol

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Coach Clifford played 10 players almost evenly.

  • TTNN

    radio is interview to coach Salias about Jeremy Lin now. 🙂

    All good words about him.

  • BUZZCITY17

    Lin needs to STEP IT UP ! GO Buzz CITY!

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s shame for NBA that I have to get oversea illegal site to watch this game. SMH.

  • blubell

    What did he say?

  • Alain Gervais

    funny right

  • Got nice pics of JLin’s first point ever as a Hornet #BuzzCity 🙂
    History is made!

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/650466463287898112

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    11 attempts?

  • FrankW

    Starters 24 points, 69 minutes.
    Bench 24 points, 52 minutes.

  • he’s already up 🙂

  • blubell

    He’s doing fine… its only the first preseason game with a new team!

  • JW

    bench all have at least an assist except hairston

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Greedy organization. All restriction in the US.

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    said he is a good person.

    work hard, and also could push the pace.

    Said he is such a good person, he was 14,15,16th guy in golden state, used to sit beside him in suit, and he don’t know he could be that good in NY. But he said, he is still like that person as in Golden state, down to earth, but bring that confidence of success and swagger here now.

    All good words, I did not record everything.

  • Dorothy

    222

  • Arsenium12 .

    ESPN listing Lin as CHA top performer for the first half …
    __________

  • blubell

    Thanks!

  • It looks like Clifford wants to start regular game rotation (starters to begin Q1/Q3) more than experimentation
    This is good.

    I want to see who gets to close out the game

  • Dorothy

    Kemba just got 2+1

  • zxcvb

    Gonna be a frequent theme unless Jeremy starts.

  • Dorothy

    Kemba 3333

  • zxcvb

    To be fair, without Lin, the desire to watch would be waaaay less.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Walker breaks out of the shooting slump with Batum as playmaker.

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    First lead for Hornets in the 3rd.

  • CHA took the 1st lead 59-58 on Marvin Williams’ 3

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kemba comes alive; good for him.

  • blubell

    No desire…

  • Walker is probably better as an SG with Batum or Lin as PG

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jeremy Lamb can create more spacing than MKG. Batum, Walker, Lamb.

  • JW

    wonder if it’s cuz MKG not a offensive threat. Lamb spread floor better

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sure is!

  • zxcvb

    No Vucevic…wouldn’t liked to see him or Gordon (wing defender).

  • blubell

    Walker – 10p/6a

  • good point
    better spacing for sure

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hornets put on a run! running the Magic out of the couet.

  • LimitedEdition

    Good to see Walker stepping his game up. Need him to play well for the team to make the playoffs

  • Hornets O & D is clicking.

    Jefferson is light & quick to challenge shots

  • zxcvb

    If this were about basketball only, it should be Lin / Lamb / Batum / Hawes / Zeller. With Kaminsky at PF when he’s physically ready.

  • pandaboy99

    Jefferson is very quality big man

  • John Lee

    Why “probably”? 🙂

  • I am The Jason

    The Hornets are whopping the Magic in this quarter. Keep up the good work.

  • Alain Gervais

    now we look better

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    MKG should be on the bench helping the defense of the 2nd unit.

  • lol .. trying to be nice haha..

  • JW

    Lamb is showing what he can do w/ MKG down

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Coach Clifford has used lots of combinations.

  • yes, with steady dose of P&R of 1st & 2nd team, this is very promising

  • JW

    nice pass around for Lamb 3

  • I think Kemba plays better against a smaller Shabazz Napier in Q3 than taller Payton .
    Better matchup. But good to see him rolling.

  • JW

    starters at 22-23 minutes mark. cliff said about 25 minutes. so starters might not finish game then

  • Grace Nsns

    no Lin yet?

  • JW

    hairston just sub in. walker shooting FT

  • Yellow

    Napier is listed 6’1″, same height as Kemba. They both look so small on the court.

  • It’s interesting to note that Hornets play starters in Q3 (except Lamb for injured MKG) vs Magic 2nd team

    Magic is more solid in last year’s rotation so they’re testing 2nd team or new players.
    Hornets need more PT to establish lineup with new players in 1st & 2nd team

  • Grace Nsns

    Thanks. The stream froze on me, checked @espn, LIn’s is only one sitting now

  • Yellow

    Hope to see Frank and Tyler get some minutes.

  • Alain Gervais

    maybe tomorrow

  • zxcvb

    I like Clifford letting guys play 10-12m at a time. I’m more interested in tomorrow with Lin against a good team like Miami.

  • Brewkowski

    What happened?

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin in

  • Yellow

    Too bad i can’t watch the game tomorrow 🙁

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I don’t think so. Clifford seems to play guys for more minutes per game.

  • zxcvb

    Top performer at the half. He’s doing better than anyone else!

  • Rick Johnson

    The @hornets MKG has suffered a right shoulder injury and is still being evaluated. #CHAvsORL
    https://twitter.com/HornetsPR/status/650472060976766976

  • announcer also mentioned Napier was a freshman during college while Kemba was senior at UConn
    Kemba probably intimidated the younger Huskies 🙂

  • zxcvb

    I think they’ll see minutes with Lin tomorrow.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is a very cold bench. They will take longer to get into the flow.

  • Rick Johnson

    Yeah Lin !!

  • Lin;s pull up jumper!

  • Acbc

    Limbo

  • Nice to see no hesitation for Lin to rise up for the pull-up jumper in the middle

  • Yellow

    probably 🙂

  • zxcvb

    Nice midrange J, but I wanna see the Tony Parker floater!

    Make or miss, I wanna see Lin try that two-footed floater.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I guess MKG is really hurt.

  • Grace Nsns

    His floaters not ready yet, no wonder he didn’t use them last season.

  • GoodDayLA

    honestly I really like MKG. He’s like a poor man’s Andre Iggudalo. But this team is better off if he doesn’t play much or plays off the bench as a subtitute wing man or defensive specialist when needed. His jumper is broken otherwise I’d have no issue with MKG starting.

    Could be a blessing in disguise.

    Lamb should then start at the 2 while Nic shifts to 3. Then we wait and hope Clifford has the BALLS to start Lin if he is serious about winning.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Roberts runs the Point. Lin plays the 2

  • Alain Gervais

    idk but the rule is if you are subbed out and cant shoot the ft thats it for the day

  • Alain Gervais

    he will be playing that so practice for him and kemba lineup

  • zxcvb

    Yeah, he had a floater in NYK, but it was off-balance and off one-foot.

  • Lin’s getting warmed-up w/ drives, FTs & jumpers so we might have to wait 2-3 more games for the #Buzzing floaters :]

    Maybe in Shanghai against Clippers

  • David Ly

    I wonder if they’re going to go small later in the game and sub in Walker for Roberts and keep Lin at SG to end the game, and slide Batum to SF, especially since MKG is out.

  • good point.. let’s hope it happens at the end of Q4

  • JustSayNo2HardensIso

    that’s what i’m waiting to see.

  • Alain Gervais

    no i think starters are done. this is first preseason game so a warm up

  • GoodDayLA

    there will be games Clifford will keep lin benched while Kemba, Lamb, and Nic play. Wait for it. #politics

  • Yellow

    how did the led cut by 6 so quickly?

  • Whitman Lam

    Sad, and MKG was getting along very well with Jeremy. This is worse than that Julius Randle injury on the 1st game of the Lakers season.

  • blubell

    NIce pass!

  • LimitedEdition

    WOW!

  • Rick Johnson

    Nice Nash like pass behind the back.

  • Nice Lin behind-the-back pass to Zeller for the flush!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    My Lin-Zeller connection!

  • Alain Gervais

    missed it hope theres highlights

  • zxcvb

    EPIC PASS by Lin. CP3 is proud.

  • John Lee

    Roberts running point instead of Lin.

  • wandertheglobe

    Nicholson of the Magic is a beast

  • BuzzerBeater

    Nicholson exploded.

  • Alain Gervais

    yep

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Ouch… blocked 🙁

  • zxcvb

    I remember him in college. Super-skilled but lacks a good NBA body. He and Lin would be ideal.

  • blubell

    Lin scores!

  • Lin for 3 2 off Hawes’ pass!

  • BuzzerBeater

    mid-range baby! woohoo

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin’s mid range is money today.

  • zxcvb

    Frank in the game…hmm.

  • I am The Jason

    Frank the Tank has enter the game

  • zxcvb

    I wanna see Lin-Frank pick-and-pop and Lin-Kemba double-barreled backcourt.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Glad to watch couple nice baskets of JLin!

  • I’d love to see Lin’s assist to Frank for his first 3

  • zxcvb

    I don’t need any “proof” of Lin. He will play like an All-Star candidate if given the touches/screens.

    I just want to see if his teammates and coaches will trust him.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Did JLin play pg today?

  • blubell

    Yes, first half.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jason Smith and Nicholson are doing their job inside the Hornets.
    Lack of rum protection when BBig Al left.

  • Dorothy
  • 100% in 1st half but half-and-half in 2nd half

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks! Only see him play SG since I signed in.

  • Brewkowski

    Have me a bunch of pop-ups and virus warnings! 🙁

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks!

  • BUZZCITY17

    Lin is struggling in the 2nd half

  • Alain Gervais

    what?/

  • wandertheglobe

    He’s not playing PG, but still 2/2 FGs. Roberts is playing PG

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Not exactly. The bench struggles.

  • Alain Gervais

    exactly

  • BUZZCITY17

    it doesnt matter.. hes getting blocked by CJ Watson.. like come on

  • zxcvb

    Checked user history. He’s a troll.

  • BUZZCITY17

    He got blocked by CJ watson.. nuff said

  • Alain Gervais

    mostly pf defense nucleus eating today

  • Yellow

    hmmm…looks like it

  • Yellow

    Jeremy is definitely better in running point.

  • blubell

    33333!!

  • Alain Gervais

    lol wow

  • Rick Johnson

    3!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Bingo, first 3!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Jeremy ~struggles his way into another 3point, woohoo!

  • Alain Gervais

    2nd

  • blubell

    Yes, keep struggling 🙂

  • he’s shooting well
    but takes time to play w/ many players

    Lamb had to join 1st team w/ MKG injury & Frank also joined

  • Yellow

    4th foul already?

  • GoodDayLA

    Jeremy Lin is a ball dominant PG asked to play off guard.

    Can I ask who is the other teams’ SG right now against Lin?

  • I take this ‘struggle’ anytime lol

  • blubell

    yup 🙁

  • blueCypher

    Cannot wait for that highlights video after the game haha

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The bench needs rebounding help! All those offensive rebounds from Magic really stinks up

  • Alain Gervais

    preseason.

  • cshot

    splaaaasssshhhh~~

  • wandertheglobe

    You want Lin to perform like he’s on NBA2K?

  • BUZZCITY17

    I just scored 55 pts and dished 18 ast with Lin on 2k

  • BuzzerBeater

    Imagine when he’s not ~struggling? Things are looking great!

  • Alain Gervais

    on easy

  • pandaboy99

    Looks like lins new shooting technique over the summer is paying off

  • blubell

    The struggle is real. LOL

  • wandertheglobe

    Ahh…I didn’t know. LOL.

  • Yellow

    YAY!!!

  • Dorothy

    Troll Alert

  • BUZZCITY17

    At Least Clifford can see Lin is the best bench player the Hornets got.. by far

  • David Ly

    I’d like to see Lin put up at least 10 shots this game.

  • BUZZCITY17

    SuperStar Mode

  • Michael

    Are we struggling to support Lin?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Time to give Tyler some minutes!

  • Rick Johnson
  • zxcvb

    Rox, Lakers, Hornets…all the same. I’m American and I know too well the racism of many folks.

  • blubell
  • GoodDayLA

    BLESSING in disguise for the Hornets. I’m serious. When MKG comes back, he can come back as an off the bench defensive stopper who is used as needed instead of this starting 3 man.

  • BuzzerBeater

    You know who’s struggling? us with this bootleg Magic jumbotron stream. Everytime they make a play, they replay it when the Hornets are running their offensive set ugh, but beggars cant be choosers I guess! hehe

  • blubell

    Oh, no.

  • pandaboy99

    hawes and lin are definitely playing off eachother

  • Grace Nsns

    OH NO!

  • BUZZCITY17

    Clifford can see Jeremy is the best PG on the Hornets rosters.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yep! they in Lamb and that opens up the game.

  • blubell

    It’s just preseason. It will get better.

  • BUZZCITY17

    lol nice job stealing my name

  • Alain Gervais

    lol pissing me off

  • cshot

    i though lin was going to sport the headband?

  • zxcvb

    Cody “Omer Asik” Zeller. Missed 2 point-blank dunks set up by Lin.

  • GoodDayLA

    there will be games where MKG is needed, but in more games than not, you need better shooting and Nic and Lamb being in is better than Nic and MKG most of the time

  • CJSHYY

    Too hot. I guess. LOL!

  • Lin is like a magnet for fouls :]

  • blubell

    I thought so too. No gel. No headband. LOL.

  • wandertheglobe

    shoot the 3 frank

  • Yascar

    I agree actually. But they need everyone to be healthy. Hope it’s not a long term injury.

  • blueCypher

    forget about the headband. free flowing hair = swag

  • Rick Johnson

    Kaminsky should have shot that, wide open

  • Grace Nsns

    2 more points please!

  • LimitedEdition

    Frank!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clutch steal by Lin.

  • blubell

    Lin steal and assist to Frank!

  • zxcvb

    Playing scared! Passed up wide-open 3 from Lin

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin smart, get ball to Kaminsky after he blew last possession.

  • zxcvb

    Lin helping Frank = Lin effect.

  • BuzzerBeater

    He is the team’s best elite defender, hope he’s feeling better soon!

  • blubell

    Rookie with 3 TOs already.

  • Kaminsky should just shoot, not pressing too much to make difficult pass

  • grover chang

    Lin may play backup, but I am happy watching him play significant minutes Lin style rather then start and not play his game like the past 3 years. I pray he has fun and finds a lot of joy playing with the hornets. And that the team wins of course.

  • zxcvb

    Not a good stint by Frank.

  • Spyckie

    Looks like rookie nerves 🙂

  • Alain Gervais

    rookie relax

  • zxcvb

    I like Frank being unselfish, but he’s clearly too nervous. Lin is helping him though.

  • zxcvb

  • rookie jitters, I guess.
    Clifford might not play him too much

  • Rick Johnson

    Want Lin to get a 3 so he ties Lamb

  • blubell

    Rookie with the 3 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin in 4Q is clutch performance.

  • GoodDayLA

    lin is a great natural scorer. He will get some more points. He just always does.

  • zxcvb

    Frank nervous and hurting Lin’s unit. I like Lin keep feeding him though. Good leadership.

  • zxcvb

    I love Lin trusting Frank even when he makes dumb mistakes. He’ll make a great coach someday.

  • blubell

    He did that with all of the rookies he has played. Good veteran.

  • GoodDayLA

    hah its preseasons and meaningless. Wait till regular season starts and Frank shoots an airball.

  • I am The Jason

    Lin is helping the Tank. Not the Lakers tank. 🙂

  • cshot

    I’m sure frank is appreciating Lin’s trust!

  • Alain Gervais

    frank really nervous but has a shooters touch

  • blubell

    He has nothing to do with the latter.

  • zxcvb

    He has skill…just nervous! So lucky he has Lin as PG.

  • blubell

    Good defense.

  • Rick Johnson

    Hair’s looking messy

  • blubell

    Mr. 4th quarter!

  • zxcvb

    I love the fair reffing! No call on Lin’s layup on light contact, but then no call on the other end right after.

    All I ask for is fairness!

  • LimitedEdition

    Easy win!

  • blubell

    Go Jeremy! Clutch!

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes !! Team high scorer.

  • GoodDayLA

    As I said earlier, Lin is a naturally gifted scorer. I always fret about him getting more points, but when used properly in a fair manner, Lin seems to find the ball and opportunities to score.

  • Alain Gervais

    lol.

  • JW

    coach wants to see what Robert can do. Guess not much yet.

  • pandaboy99

    holy crap lin clutch

  • Lin with great D followed by a good drive to “ICE” the game

  • pandaboy99

    im so excited for this season!

  • cshot

    awww yea!

  • Alain Gervais

    good experience for kaminsky

  • zxcvb

    Lin = clutch / cool /crazy hair

  • Yellow

    Despite rookie’s jitters Frank still shoot 50%…YAY *.*

  • David Ly

    Love how he just drove to the basket once Watson was giving him ball pressure early in the shot clock at the end of the game. No hesitation this season so far.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Charlotte with 3 Gs and 2 Bigs
    Lin preserves the victory by his scoring.

  • blubell

    So this is how you close the game 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    He really, really, really hates to lose.

  • GoodDayLA

    Jeremy Lin will be the all time best free agency steal in the modern era. A 2 million guy playing like a 15 mill per guy. Only in America.

  • Yellow

    LFW! Clutch Clutch!

  • Lin ex-#17 with 17pts!

  • blubell

    #7 with 7 assists 🙂

  • GoodDayLA

    I actually think Kemba Walker will greatly improve his game this season. It may still pale in comparison to Lin, but Kemba knows the pressure is on and I believe Kemba will play his all time best with Lin on his heels.

  • Yascar

    Bro he’s playing in #7! But I’ll take the 17 any day! 🙂

  • Briiick

    I am waiting for the JL highlights. Can’t find a link to watch…

  • LOL.. yes nice correction

  • +1, I’m just happy there’s no Julius Randle type of rookies that never pass Jeremy the ball, or Jordan Clarkson type that tries to do too much.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Love to see Zeller gets double digit scoring.

  • yeah, I went blank for a while lol

  • blubell

    17/7!

  • zxcvb

    Lin too good.

  • Yascar

    Lol it’s ok we’re all excited!

  • GoodDayLA

    If Jeremy Lin is at the 1 with a 2 like Lamb, he will do even more scary damage.

  • Rick Johnson

    Must be a sign.

  • zxcvb

    This is why Lin needs to start. He needs big minutes.

    He loves to help others for 70% of his time. And then he goes LINSANITY for the next 30%.

    Decent game by Lin.. 17 and 7 in 25 minutes. He can definitely still play better than this though

  • David Ly

    Lin and Lamb
    25 min
    5/10

  • BuzzerBeater

    Yay! I went from being mad at there being no stream to getting a stream and Lin looking great, the team and system in general was very refreshing to watch compared to the last 2 teams that shall never be mentioned again.

    LOL. Go home troll. You failed like Kemba “38%” Walker.

    I don’t like the preseason rotations. I hope Clifford plays some more realistic rotations in the last 2-3 games.

    This starter bench cycle never happens in real season games and playoffs.

  • grover chang

    didn’t get to watch, but Lin numbers and comments on hornets unselfish play sounds like tonight was a good debut for Lin as a hornet. Not a bad return for a $2 million dollar player.

  • zxcvb

    BTW, I’d love it if Kemba and Lin with a double-barreled backcourt like Bledsoe/Dragic, Curry/Thompson, Wall/Beal.

  • Arsenium12 .

  • Dan Ang

    Haters are going to say, “How many minutes tho?” LOL

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clifford has to try different combinations. Some of tthem work and some don’t

  • GoodDayLA

    Coach Clifford will use Lin fairly. He may not use him quite to the point of starting Lin and trusting Lin as PG all the way like we want, but it will indeed be the closest thing since Linsanity.

  • Dorothy

    Troll Alert

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    7 players played over 20 minutes.
    Played 12 players. almost all of them over double digit minutes. Kaminsky played damn close to 10 minutes.
    Couldn’t ask for better minutes management for preseason game.

  • blubell
  • Michael

    You went out on a limb to say that.

  • pandaboy99

    !Lin played the most minutes!… clifford is a lin fan!

  • Briiick

    Love it!

  • blubell

    Might not play much tomorrow.

  • JJ Hui

    Distract the opponent! LOL!

  • zxcvb

    Yep! Lin’s best is always 4th quarter. He’s not a selfish guy — even if he SHOULD be for contract’s sake.

    He loves to help others by passing (despite TOs) and then he takes control if necessary in the 4Q. That’s why his best quarter is always the 4th…even in NY.

  • blueCypher

    Ya, I think the others who didn’t get to play much today will play tomorrow

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clifford played Kaminsky the 4Q; damn close scar the sh*t out of the rookie but Frank responded well at the end.
    We would see more Zeller and Frank together on the court more. They seemed to complement each other well in the middle.

  • pandaboy99

    you can thank lin for feeding the kaminksy for the 3 and calming him down

  • Alain Gervais

    lmao he looked like a dear in headlights most of the night but handled it well

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    This translates to 25/10 per 36 min, already elite numbers, especially considering he’s playing with a new team for the first time.

  • jlim7

    Why does Hansbrough not get PT?

  • Rick Johnson

    True, had a good second half.

  • blueCypher

    tomorrow probably

  • John Lee

    Maybe big minutes tomorrow?

  • cshot

    how many min did walker play?

  • Alain Gervais

    we do have a lot of pf maybe hard for him to find minutes

  • Alain Gervais

    23 to lins 25

  • Yellow

    Who’s the MOD on duty now?

  • pandaboy99

    lin on the team just makes kemba better, cuz he knows he can be pulled for lin if hes not producing.

    I repeat.
    This MOD IS CRAZY

  • cshot

    thanks! hopefully lin can get a lot of playing time during the reg season as well. i assume he would from backing up both batum and walker

  • blubell

    He is very good with rookies. He did that with Terrance Jones in HOU and Tariq Black in LA.

    I hope he continues to average this number or higher.

  • Yascar

    ??

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clifford played almost 12 players with double digit minutes. What more can you ask?
    Tyler is going to make the team.
    Not sure Brian Roberts and Hairston would!

  • Dan Cohen

    it’s only preseason… calm down.

  • Whitman Lam

    Nice to see Cody Zeller in the background, he’s fighting to crash the board for the offensive rebound put back in case Lin misses the layup. This Charlotte team’s got his back, unlike Houston and L.A.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin only made 2 TOs and 7 assists in 25 minutes. That’s a relief.

  • Alain Gervais

    whats crazy about today is all his points and plays came in the flow of the game. it was a relaxed linsanity.

  • blueCypher

    i would not underestimate the lin fans 🙂

  • real-dsb

    he needs to change his jersey to 33 then =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Two Jeremy(s) shot 50% and that include their 3 pointers. They were both 2-4 in longs.

  • Rick Johnson

    Exactly

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yep! They would figure out something.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I might be the only one who second you.

    One question are you related to bluebell 0.0?

  • Is there something wrong?

    CLT is Charlotte’s airport. Like LAX is Los Angeles.

  • pandaboy99

    In thought people use cha

  • jlim7

    First few minutes Kemba was 0 of 5. In third quarters, he made points on Batum feeds. Seems like his shooting is better when he is open, so Clifford decision to have second ballhandlers is correct.

  • Rick Johnson

    I’ve seen both. The NBA app uses CHA

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Lin GOT HIS

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • real-dsb

    that would be very bad news since MKG is anchor of the defense. And injured right shoulder would affect his shooting (which he had improved last year)

  • blubell
  • blueCypher

    please. keep the hair for swag the whole season. no gel no headband

  • grover chang

    blubell thank you for all the pictures. I love you.

  • John Lee

    Let’s get ready for the next game thread vs the Heat, hope Lin and Hornets rip Dragic a new one!!!

  • zxcvb

    Would have shot 7/10 if he had normal hair! All those strands annoy me.

  • John Lee

    Hey, I liked the gel Super Saiyan look!

  • zxcvb

    He might rest. Clifford said some vets would rest and Lin played 25m tonight.

  • blueCypher

    gel is too much work, focus must be on bball haha

  • Alain Gervais

    lol reminds me of the hair jackie chan had in the 80s. miss the movies lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Even with  my message to support Yellow。
    Couldn’t I say, I feel the same。

  • John Lee

    If spiky hair poked opponents’ eyes, would it be considered offensive foul? LOL

  • blubell

    Ummm, ok… LOL.

  • Whitman Lam

    ‘Cuz Cliff wanted to WIN the preseason game !!

  • Alain Gervais

    brian mcrobort is terrible. i think lin plays also he is new. must get chemistry. some turn over was on not having chemistry

  • John Lee

    But KHuang needs to get his Lin/Psycho T fix and I’m curious to see it too. 🙂

  • blueCypher

    lol, probably not. but that would be an advantage

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    I don’t think he can sit, MKG got injuried, Batum will slide to SF, and there is no guards….. I think both Jeremy will play a bit more min.

  • blueCypher

    so we are all in this season huh, 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Clifford wants 2 ball-handlers, i.e. 2 playmakers on the court at the same time.

  • jlim7

    But when he was out after injury and replaced by Lamb, Hornets started getting points, first by Lamb, then by others. I think it is correct what Khuang said, Batum is better at 3.

  • Alain Gervais

    we havemnt seen this lin in 3 years. saw it a few in huston but man I’m happy he’s back

  • blubell

    You mean AllLin? 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    So is League Pass free for the preseason or am I going to have to buy it for tomorrow’s game?

  • John Lee

    Where’s @awarde:disqus ? Uncharacteristic for her to miss a game.

  • Briiick

    Can someone make a JL highlight ? Many thanks !

  • blueCypher

    Honestly, I think its just been unfortunate events for Lin after New York. Had Harden not been traded to the Rockets , his role with the Rockets would have been like todays game.

  • Alain Gervais

    i like it but mcrobort better never play he looked like a rookie.

  • blubell

    I remember she missed few games last season because of busy work schedule.

  • blueCypher

    How did I miss that one , hah.

    I follow the Warriors too and its gonna be great

  • Rick Johnson

    He will be even better when he builds chemistry with his teammates. I haven’t seen him paired with someone like a Tyson Chandler or Ed Davis yet.

  • blueCypher

    There was an easy one that Spencer flubbed I remember.

  • blueCypher

    I recall they have a free period every year

  • blubell
  • grover chang

    I think Kwok said it earlier that Zeller could be the new Davis. I thought so too after watching last season highlights. Zeller has the speed, hops, and hands to be a new Davis.

  • real-dsb

    distract the opponents

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Haven’t been enjoyed JLin and his team game so much since I had the chance to watch his game which was 2 seasons ago. I’m so bumped up finally I can watch JLin’s live game with effortless great game. Only was able to watch the very last couple minutes from 3rd qtr til the end. Guess it was the best part of the game:-)

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    LP wouldn’t let me stream the audio today. I’ll see on my TV when they play Miami tomorrow.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not this year I believe.

  • blubell

    Audio used to be free… they’re charging for that now?

  • Tommy

    cuz hes a scrub he might not even make the final roster

  • Phillycheese

    Good catch.

  • blueCypher

    I figured, makes sense. I would like to see a closing line up with Lin and Kemba back court

  • grover chang

    😉 Keep them coming! I’ve missed these Lintastic Nights.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes higher than 1 team game.

  • pandaboy99

    Well roberts as pg is a failed experiment

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    7 assists; not playing much PG!
    That’s amazing.

  • pandaboy99

    With mkg out this is much more likely

  • Ben Johnson

    Think he passed both tests with flying colors…bring on the 28-30mins per game Coach

  • Ben Johnson

    should have had at least 10…lots of blown assists by the bigs

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Mid-Autumn Hibernation?

  • Phillycheese

    You mean deer.

  • John Lee

    I said @awarde:disqus, not @Dinoneseus:disqus. LOL

  • blueCypher

    Even with MKG healthy, Kemba-Lin-MKG-Batum-Jefferson . I think this can work. I think the coach wants to play 4 out

  • joyce ward

    Great game Hornets,especially lin. I think once this team really gels, they are going to be a force to be reckoned with. I love how lin kept feeding frank and giving up on him. I bet Clifford likes that about lin. Also want to see more of Lin-Hawes connection,

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Let’s don’t trash Lin’s teammate.
    He’s playing the first game.
    He’s handling the ball as PG.
    He took only 1 shot.

  • John Lee

    Hey you showed up!

    The bigs tried their best to convert Lin’s passes and did quite well. I don’t miss butterfingers at all. 🙂

  • Tommy

    Im not trashing
    only stating the truth

  • Alain Gervais

    hawe and zeller had a few ways one and it was blocked

  • John Lee

    That was a VERY small sample size to draw that conclusion.

  • pandaboy99

    How many times did you see lin give up the ball and get it back on this hornets team… Now compare that to lakers and rockets

  • Rick Johnson

    That’s team ball. Not pass it to Kobe to let him chuck you out of a game ball.

    Charlotte Hornets PR
    ‏@HornetsPR
    The @hornets had 5 players in double figures tonight led by Lin’s 17 pts. Lamb-16, Batum-14, Walker-13 & Zeller-10. #CHAvsORL

    He WAS a great player, but never been (nor will ever be) a true leader.

  • BuzzerBeater

    They had 30 assists! So great to see.

  • Rick Johnson

    He’s a low % volume shooter now.

  • blueCypher

    I disagree, he was a great leader during those championships with gasol

  • John Lee

    Welcome back from mooncake coma! 🙂

  • John Lee

    True leadership is seen in the tough times when things AREN’T going one’s way. Running Shaq out of town (Kobe himself in retrospect admitted it was a mistake) and throwing teammates under the bus show true colors.

  • John Lee

    Half of which were from Lin/Kemba. 🙂

  • grover chang

    thx

  • CJSHYY

    Can’t believe this?! But I really want to see how he’s going to play tomorrow.

  • Ben Johnson

    that team is a disaster waiting to happen, haha ;D

  • John Lee

    Translation” “I AM the offense, why set up anyone else?”

  • Alain Gervais

    cant see this

  • John Lee

    Definitely, since the incredible “head of the snake” is missing. /s

  • blueCypher

    lol, kobe wants to finish the offense not set it up haha

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! That’s right. He told Russell he likes to shoot…. so that kid will pass every ball to Kobe. LOL!

  • grover chang

    Be my guest and watch. I’m a Laker fan but I don’t think I could stomach watching the Lakers. BS offensive system and an old Kobe makes it hard to watch. Lin and Davis were the two bright spots for me last year.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    8 players of Hornets played over 20 minutes. 3 players played from 18 to 10 minutes. Frank Kaminsky only played in the 4Q and that’s a darn good substitution, not at the beginning. Frank played almost 10 minutes taken away 2 secs. This preseason game is well coached. Zeller and Frank began to defend the rim better together.

    The 3rdQ surge and 4thQ defending the lead were both good. I can almost feel good team chemistry between some players; starting or playing from the bench. From the bench, the Hornets need both Zeller and Kaminsky to protect the rim; Steve Hawes is more an offensive player. Perhaps he would far well with Big Al. Jeremy Lamb can really stretch the court spacing. Clifford’s theory of having 2 playmakers on the court proves to be sound.

  • Guest

    Let Kobe look backward. We are moving on.

  • joyce ward

    So it begins. LOL

  • real-dsb

    “Frank, I’m going to keep passing you the ball until you shoot it!” =)

  • grover chang

    Girl, you let me down ;-(, where is the picture.

  • blubell
  • real-dsb

    It’s all right, first preseason game for a rookie. Just trying to get his bearings. He’ll be fine.

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    BS is just offensive, there is no system.

  • blubell
  • Arsenium12 .
  • Michael

    But isn’t that part of why they won championships?

  • blueCypher

    I hope its nothing serious

  • real-dsb

    That’s because Lin knows how to maximize his teammates’ strengths (unlike some of the coaches he’s had in the past). Reminds me of the time he waved off Shumpert and passed the ball to Novak for the 3.

  • real-dsb

    season average? =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Steve Hawes seems a bit of liability on defense.

  • blubell

    I’m sorry… 🙁

  • John Lee

    Kobe only likes winning when it’s through him.

  • blubell

    Off the bench? not a bad stat!

  • Let’s join Lin to wish speedy recovery for MKG

  • blubell

    Wasn’t he one of the opponent coaches that praised Jeremy last year?

    This ESPN recap video only showed Lin as #197 in NBA and not 17/7 who lead the Hornets. ESPN just doesn’t dig Lin.

  • Rick Johnson

    Other teams going to double him a lot so Hornets better get some shooters ready as there will be someone open.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s what Lin wants… that’s why he picked this team bc coach agreed to do so. Even only w 2M salary.

  • TTNN

    that’s job security, they like to get player who play good against them, like Josh Smith goes to Clippers.

  • golfhacker

    However, Charlotte has more talent now.

  • LW

    They must justify their Lin ranking or they will slap their own faces.

  • blubell

    I was thinking Scott Brooks… lol.

  • blueCypher

    Right, what good is more money if you are unhappy

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    They want lin at a bargain basement price. They know that lin is a good player, but it is the politics of the NBA. There is a hierarchy of players and lin is not on that list. Look at Tony Parker,excellent PG, but does not nearly get as much hype as Westbrook,or Chris Paul.

  • GoodDayLA

    No force, just this seasons version of last years hawks team until they empower Lin and trade for some better big men

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks! You answer my question.

  • wu kong

    http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/dislocated-separated-shoulder?page=2

    “When Will My Dislocated or Separated Shoulder Feel Better?

    How quickly you recover depends on how serious your shoulder injury is. Separated shoulders may heal over a period of 6 weeks. Dislocated shoulders may take longer — more like 3 to 12 weeks. But these lengths of time are just approximations. Everyone heals at a different rate.

    Surgery for severe separated shoulders is sometimes needed to repair the torn ligament. Afterwards, you will probably need to keep your arm in a sling for about six weeks.

    For a severely dislocated shoulder, surgery is sometimes needed to correctly position the bones.”

  • Lin’s versatility as a PG/SG combo in this game is going to really help the Hornets 1st & 2nd team.

    Plus, his clutch moment to seal the game with great defense & clutch drive will help Clifford to play Lin/Kemba/Batum at the end of the game.

    ==== THE HAIR ====
    -Lin’s hair is cracking me up
    – Da*n Lin what kind of cut is that?
    That’s called “The Asian.”
    The Asian? you got to be kidding me lol
    Didn’t he spike it up for that recent video?
    – lin’s going with a more traditional look. good for him.
    Lin’s hair is really bothering me :p
    how long until jeremy lin plays for us?
    – That was karma for the hair, Lin.

    ==== GAME ====
    Jeremy Lin kind of killing us. But good for him.
    – Lin has played an excellent game so far.
    – The turnstile defense he’s faced at times has helped
    Lin has owned the Magic today. Been great knowing when to shoot and pass, and also doing a good job picking up fouls against the overly aggressive defense.
    Why is Lin getting superstar calls
    – Lin with another superstar call
    – We gave up 106 points to the hornets… Lamb and Lin combined for 33pts on 10-20 shooting… good luck with practice tomorrow.

    Hmm, Zeller took no 3-pt attempts, he said he was going to start shootings 3s this year. Well, maybe he was just bluffing to the opponents to think that he may or may not take a 3.

  • it’s a little scary for sure.
    I haven’t watched the Super Saiyan video so it might not be for everyone

  • A lot of good analysis AtTheHive game summary:

    I watched the 2nd half quite closely… I really hope MKG is ok…

    Batum can play and he is reliable… he is great with half court movements but he really is a 2nd or 3rd scoring option at the moment. His cross court passes were great and they all lead to 1 extra pass for an open 3.

    Roberts is PG but he cannot really create for others… he ends up deferring to Lin all the time… Cliff really should try Troy Daniels next game playing along side Lin… the second unit would be much more threatening from deep.
    (I had a quick check on Roberts Assist numbers….Career 2.8 APG with 19.5 MPG….really not a good creator…)

    Frank is good enough to be in the backup C/PF for now… not ready for starting role just yet… (he made a few rookie mistakes… a few sloppy passes and 1 travel)

    Cody is pretty good on offense (not getting calls though)…. seemed a bit slow on the defense at times…especially playing against Nicholson…. very uncomfortable when he got dragged out to the 3 point line…. maybe something to improve on?… he was so much better with the defense rotations inside the key…

    Lin is a good fit to the Hornets… The coaching staff is already running out of bound plays for him…. but definitely needs more teamwork on the plays
    (The ran the same out of bounds play 3 -4 times… Lin doing the inbound pass and run a double screen around the the base line to the basket or out)
    (1st time Lin try to catch the pass under the basket but got knocked out of bounds)
    (2nd time Lin caught the pass at the weak side 3 point line and hit the 3)
    (3rd time Line caught the pass under basket but missed the layup)

  • real-dsb

    Wow, the Charlotte Observer’s Hornets coverage is really lacking.

    1. Their main Hornets beat writer, Rick Bonnell, was not even at the game. He was covering the Clemson football game. Clemson is in South Carolina, not even in the same state as Charlotte.
    http://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/college/football/article37696497.html

    2. The game recap that the Observer published was by Ken Hornack, who apparently is a Fox sports writer for the Magic. In that article, Hornack lists the three players under “Who Mattered” in the game: Batum, Walker, and Andrew Nicholson (Magic). “Worth mentioning”: Troy Daniels, Elliot Williams, Devyn Marble (Magic). Barely any mention of Lin, you know, the leading scorer for the Hornets?

    http://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/charlotte-hornets/article37678878.html

  • real-dsb

    SBNation (At the Hive) has far better Hornets coverage than Charlotte Observer.

  • I heard Charlotte Observer doesn’t really provide good coverage on Hornets.
    So perhaps that’s the reason there are many independent Hornets blog sites

  • sorry, I guess less scary stuff is better :>

  • real-dsb

    “Jeremy Lin led the Hornets with 17 points, on 5-for-10 shooting, to go with seven assists”

    “With the second unit, Lin handled much of the play making duties, and
    creating several open shot opportunities by driving the lane and drawing
    defenders. Lin played a lot off the ball in the second half, with
    Roberts handling the point guard duties, but handled that role as well,
    which is a good sign seeing as he will likely see time with Kemba Walker.”

  • that’s a very smart strategy by Coach Clifford.
    Lin would need to learn to play together as PG/SG w/ Kemba & Nic to close out games.
    I wonder if we’d see this lineup towards the end of preseason games

    Goes to show what kind of writer Ken Hornak is (or most sports writers, for that matter).

  • Michael

    How about this one?

  • real-dsb

    Well, Hornack was mentioning that Daniels and Williams didn’t play. But not sure how that is Worth Mentioning more than many other things that happened in the game.

  • Phillycheese

    “Cheap” is so negative. I prefer “value”.

  • John Lee

    My point exactly, why mention what things “didn’t” happen when there are plenty of other things did.

    Hansbrough didn’t check in either, let’s write an essay about that while ignoring the winning team’s highest scorer of the night. Either Hornak is a REALLY bad writer, or he’s got an agenda.

    Even a boxscore writer would’ve have to write nicely about Lin.

  • real-dsb

    OT – Lawson trashing Curry’s defense:

    “I thought Steph was just
    chillin’ on defense – and then going crazy on offense. He looked like he
    was just putting shots up and not working so much on the defensive end.
    He would just come down and hit three or four 3’s. He can shoot when
    he’s got his legs under him.”

    Curry may not be the best defender in the world, but you can’t be the league’s #1 defense unless all 5 starters are contributing on the defensive end.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I read it and refused to do anything about that article. Actually I should say I don’t give much of any value of that site thus far.

  • John Lee

    This goes beyond not providing good coverage, skipping the winning team’s highest scorer is unforgivable even for boxscore writers. This is just low.

  • real-dsb

    Looks like he got leaner in the offseason (although the weight may be cancelled out by his extra hair, LOL). I think Lin’s better off leaner with lower weight than stronger with heavier weight. He’ll be quicker at a lower weight.

    I don’t think bulking up to take more hits in the paint is the right tradeoff. Instead, Lin should stay more on the ground (instead of absorbing hits while jumping high).

  • John Lee

    I think he got Curry and Harden confused.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. Won’t read/click their contribution in future. Saw another similar piece in the past few days. JLin seems like a non-existence player in that site.

  • John Lee

    That site is as dead to me as KKKlutchfans. Can’t believe the feature photo was Lin having the ball stolen, and then no mention of his 17/7 and closing out the game.

  • real-dsb

    Even if they just had a business mind, they would know that covering Lin would bring them much more views.

  • real-dsb

    LOL good one!

  • blueCypher

    Is there another alternative to BS and League pass

  • John Lee
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I watched JLin games via http://www.firstrows.eu/us/basketball last season as compared to League pass previous season. Found that I like http://www.firstrows.eu/us/basketball better. Many more options to view. This is free.

  • Rick Johnson

    Tomorrow is the last game before they go to China. I wonder if they will feature Lin more to drum up buzz or just rest him because it’s a B2B? After tomorrow it’s a whole week before the next game.

  • real-dsb

    I think they’ll play Lin, he’s just a “bench player” after all. =)

  • blueCypher

    I meant paid ones. The quality on these are lower, while a good fall back option

  • CaliUSMC

    IMO- it looks like he lean bulked. He def added some muscle mass.

    OK. Can’t help you on that. Didn’t like league pass; never try other one.

    Ya, LP is terrible. Blackout for national tv games, meaning the good ones. But Hornets wont have national games this year

  • real-dsb

    top comments in that reddit thread:

    “I still like Lin. He passes the eye test to me and puts up decent
    numbers. He’s been in some bad team fit situations. Hoping he can be the
    Hornets 6th man and has the ball in his hands for the second unit.”

    “Dark horse for 6th man of the year.”

  • CaliUSMC

  • kauaiblue

    Lol re essay

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    At least, Lin is shown with his assists not only the turnovers.

  • Phillycheese

    Yep. Lawson wouldn’t know a good defense even if it came in a bottle.

  • KL

    I called it right. I said that Lin would bust out of the gate for the preseason. Lin had good boxscore stats, but more than that, he was efficient (17 points on 10 shots) and clutch down the stretch.

    Also I think if Clifford played Lin with 6’1″ Roberts he could play Lin with Kemba to close out games. Amazing how Lin seamlessly moved between playing on and off the ball. At this rate Lin is going to be unstoppable.

  • Ulysses Modder

    Yesterday’s game was against a very bad team, today Lin had played against Chalmers and Dragic, so I’ll better analyze the Hornets and Lin for this new season.

    Solomon Nwachukwu · Queens High School for the Sciences
    Nice game by our Hornets. Lets hope the injury MKG is not serious. And Ken Hornack….how the heck did you miss Jeremy Lin in your reporting? Interesting that you didn’t even mention him. He did help our team win and led the team in scoring. Another bias reporter. Smh

    Russell Young
    What Steve said. How can you not mention JLin the leading scorer, who came off the bench, led the second unit well and also played one of the longest with 25 mins? BTW, is also looking like a great fit and steal at a team friendly contract… Not observant from the Charlotte Observer (light quip)

    Steve Prost · Chaplain at U.S. Army Chaplain Center and School
    uh, was jeremy lin not one of “those who mattered” or “worth mentioning” with not just the best stat line of the game among all hornets but also passing the eye test as a leader on the floor when he was on the floor in passing, penetrating, creating looks? From your long article you’d think he was practically a total non-presence

  • KL

    In my personal opinion Orlando will do better than they have been given credit for. Miami will do worse than people expect.

  • Yellow

    Where can we get PER of the players? PFV always mentions PER and iirc, he did mention the source in his video but I forgot it.

  • Yellow

    but i thought there’s a site which has the PER of all players…anyway, will incorporate the calculator in my spreadsheet.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW Impress! At least it isn’t JLin fans are doing the critics.

  • KL

    Honestly given the injury to MKG they should be more careful. I think Lin and the starters may get less minutes for the game against Miami.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Honestly Jeremy should take care of the ball like Kemba Walker; stop turning over the ball.
    The first turnover is simply unforgivable; utmost negligence. It’s related to your resume to be a starting PG, Jeremy.

  • KL

    I think Jeremy will average 2 turnovers or less this season. Clifford will get his teammates to help him out, unlike in his past 2 teams.

  • KHuang

    Typical anti Asian hate from the media.

  • KHuang

    A guy like Nicholson who was totally unstoppable like he typically is doesn’t need a 3 pt shot.

  • KHuang

    Lin’s slowed down a tad bit and gained more weight.

    That makes him even more lethal than ever because before he was almost moving too fast for the game.

  • JE Ballew

    Half empty cup.

  • CJSHYY

    He only got 2 TO that’s not big deal. I believe he could get his double double if his new teammates could finish it.

  • webattorney

    It did look bad, careless. But he did some good things. I am not convinced that Hornets has good PNR players who can work with Lin.

  • KHuang

    Remember that I warned against Lin learning TOO MUCH fancy ballhandling from “The professor” this summer?

    That’s what Lin gets for OVERTRAINING that useless fancy streetball dribbling that doesn’t work against aggressive long armed NBA athletes.

    Lin settled down and went back to his standard plain dribbling game that has worked for him the last 4 seasons.

  • KHuang

    You’ll find out that practically the whole team can run effective pick and rolls with Lin.

  • KHuang

    Serves Lin right, actually.

    That useless fancy dribbling streetball training from the summer is what earned Lin that turnover!

    Lin’s gotta dribble cleanly and conservatively. He learned his lesson and now will be just fine.

  • jlim7

    Khuang, if you have League Pass, better to replay it over and over, don’t rely on the highlight, you will see that when it was turnover, he has already picked up the ball with his two hands and brought it to left side to avoid steal, but defender reached in and didn’t even touch the ball but his right hand bumped with Lin’s right hand, and Lin lost the ball.

  • Brent Yen

    I have to say you have a great vision and…great monitor I assume…LOL

  • Preseason2 CHA @ MIA Game Thread is now open
    http://www.jlinportal.com/preseason2-cha-mia-game-thread/

    What a great start by JLin to kick off his Hornets season!

    It’s still preseason games but it’s very encouraging to see how Coach Clifford used JLin as a PG in the 1st half and a combo guard (PG/SG) in the 2nd half. Jeremy passed the test with a flying color to be the Top Performer with 17p/7a.

    More importantly, Jeremy would eventually be the versatile weapon to be a combo guard to close out games with Kemba Walker because it would only make sense to have all playmakers on the floor to beat quality teams.

    Would Clifford give JLin some rest today since he plays last night?
    I predict JLin will only play ~20min tonight since Coach Clifford has seen what he wants from Jeremy.
    After MKG injury, it would be better to be more cautious with all key players.

    It would be awesome to see JLin have some stint to play with starters. He already knows how to play with Jeremy Lamb in the 2nd team so it should be an easy transition.

    Let’s go, JLin!

  • awesome! That means he/she’ll be ready to create another one after the Heat game tonight 🙂

  • blueCypher

    I think he will play around the same amount of minutes today since the next games will be in china

  • you’re correct. Nash used to do the same thing to dribble in-and-out of the paint to probe defense then whip behind-the-back pass to the trailing big men or pass outside to a wide-open 3pt shooter.

    I think we’re seeing more fruits of his work-session with Nash in LA.

  • JFirst

    It was working ok. Just finished watching it. Thanks!

  • he might play even more minutes in China since the fans demand him 🙂

    We might heard chants like “We want Lin” “We want Lin”

  • jlim7

    Not sure, you are being sarcastic or not. Don’t take my word, replay the first replay at your home (not the highlight one), i pressed pause play repeatedly.

  • Brent Yen

    I tried…it will not load….I guess I will just forget it…lol

  • Acbc

    IMO, Lin should do a wind tunnel test. That hair is definitely a drag and slowing him down. Lol.

    Seriously, if he can just improve his 3s with quicker release, he wouldn’t need to bulk up to take hits. Just like Curry forces defences to be tight to him and never sag behind screens. He’d blow by defenders so fast that he would have enough time to chose multiple options without ever going into the trees.

  • jlim7

    I think wait for other fans to come up with slow motion of this, then everybody can see. I don’t have software to capture and make it slow motion. By the way, at other site mention this as Jeremy was trying to do Invisible Euro Step. I read after i wrote my reply to Khuang, and i think this is indeed a euro step, and now i understand euro step naturally will force defender to reach in. Actually, what Lin should do is to flail arms like Harden.

  • Martin Chong

    must be 4k resolution!

  • Brent Yen

    And snap his head back like Harden (no kidding)

  • GoodDayLA

    Psalm, playing Kemba and Lin is a recipe for disaster against the elite Nba teams. Yes that lineup will cream bad to average teams, but it pains me to see u support a failing strategy. I’ve watched too much bball for far too long. I know it is fools gold.

  • orLinaryjoe

    No reason why Lin and Kemba can’t play together at reasonable scenarios like Thompson and Curry.

  • GoodDayLA

    Oh my…

  • Infini

    I really do hope this preseason play is indicative of how the Coach will play Lin as there was some false hope in last year’s preseason.

    For now I’ll remain optimistic.
