As much as I wanted Lin in the game at the end of regulation, I guess the experience Clarkson was getting is work it. I want this W.
Bulls lead by 5, 2 min to go in OT. i'm amazed Byron Scott is sticking with Clarkson with Lin on the bench.
Having Lin in there also wouldn't have left it all on Clarkson. Would be a shame if Clarkson's strong night ends so badly for him.
Lakers blew a nine-point lead in the final 1:21 of regulation. Byron should've put Lin in as another ball-handler vs. Bulls' press.
How can you not put Lin in the game with the the Bulls putting on a full court press for the last several possessions?
LAL picked a good time for a 6-0 run, as Ellington, Boozer and Lin score B2B2B to make it 90-83 with 6 minutes and change left.
Black, Davis, Swaggy, Clarkson, wouldnt mind Lin for cheap. 4 current Lakers I'd like to keep. Plus of course Randle/Kobe.
And as soon as I sent that last tweet, Noah hit a jumper, then forced Lin's miss on the other end. Bulls within 8.
Strong LAL bench performance in the 1st half. Carlos Boozer had 14 and 4, Jeremy Lin 8 points and 3 assists, Ed Davis 8, 4 and 2.
Lakers up 59-48 at the half, shooting 58.7% - Boozer 14 points, Hill 11, Lin/Davis 8 -- Bulls 45.0% Rose 10 points
El trio Boozer-Lin-Davis tiene 30 puntos desde la banca.
Boozer y Lin suman 18 puntos para los Lakers, que ganan 38-29.
Likin' the way Jeremy Lin is looking tonight. Lakers offense is flowing right now against the Bulls. Lin with 8pts in 9min on 4-5 shooting.
WHAT A PASS, JEREMY LIN.
Like the move by Byron Scott to put Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis out there together to run the pick-and-roll.
Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer carrying the offensive load for the Lakers. Boozer has 10, Lin 8. Both being very aggressive.
Lakers arriba 24-14 a base de una gran defensa y mucha variedad en ataque. Bien Boozer y Lin desde la banca.
Similarly strong start for LAL as they had against Washington on Tuesday. The lead is 24-14 over Chicago after Lin's 2nd hoop.
2015 Jeremy Lin > 2014 Jeremy Lin.
LAL's up 22-14 after a pull-up J from Jeremy Lin soon after his entrance. Clarkson's 2 for 2 w/a 3 for 5 points, and 7 Lakers have scored.
When asked how many rookies he's seen fearlessly taking big shots like Langston Galloway, Melo mentioned the L-word: "Probably Linsanity"
Linsanity was truly great - but my favorite part was a certain beat writer asking Melo how he'd adjust his game to Lin's style after 4 games
Funniest part is Melo referred to Jeremy Lin as "Linsanity" and recalled him in a question about rookies - before noting Lin wasn't one.
It's spreading - Carmelo just brought up Linsanity in reference to Langston Galloway. Also, seems to think that's Jeremy Lin's name.

Jeremy Lin on how he's handling all the losses: "Definitely feeling it. Ya, I'm feeling it."
