Lakers are listing status for Carlos Boozer (sore left shoulder) & Jeremy Lin (sore back) as probable to play tomorrow vs. Denver
This is why I wonder about a Parsons video. They did one for Lin on Wednesday, but you can't have a guy booed in a tribute video, can you?

It's Lin-Price-Young-Boozer-Davis to start the 4th, and Young rising to drain a tough jumper to cut HOU lead to 3. 7-0 LAL run.
