“You got to run the offense” - Kobe Bryant’s message to Jeremy Lin. lakersnation.com/kobe-bryant-to… http://t.co/B5aUvRNjT0

Mark Medina

Byron Scott believes Lin was hesitant. Lin thought he was attacking but he said he'd watch the film

Jinno Rufino

Lin can't be Fish. He's not a spot up shooter. He attacks the paint and needs the ball a little more to get some rhythm.

Jinno Rufino

Anyway, I trust that Lin and Kobe will figure things out soon, Booz & Wes will come around. Hopefully Clarkson gets some burn.

Jinno Rufino

After 2 games, Kobe falling back to 06' Kobe who didn't trust his teammates. Lin, Booz, Hill, Wes, Ed need to be more assertive.

Jinno Rufino

J Lin needs to figure things out fast. He got CP3 on Sat.

Mike Trudell

Lin won a jump ball vs. Morris, and it fell to Kobe for his 2nd triple to give him 26 points.

Mike Trudell

Boozer has 8 of LAL's 11 TO's, a real struggle for him today. Lin also struggling, 2 for 4 for 6 points w/1 assist in 17 min.

Mike Trudell

Jeremy Lin's driving layup was just his 2nd FG, bringing LAL within 9 at 59-50 at the half. Kobe had 19 on 7 of 15 FG's.

Mark Medina

We got a Jeremy Lin-Ronnie Price combination

Gary Lee

LINSANITY: PHOENIX.

Mark Medina

Lakers starters: Lin, Kobe, Wes, Boozer, Hill

Mike Trudell

It’s likely that Eric Bledsoe sticks mostly to Jeremy Lin. Patrick Beverley did a good job on his former teammate last night.

Eric Pincus

Lakers project to start the same five - with Lin/Bryant/Johnson/Boozer/Hill - tonight vs. Suns. Phx w/o PJ Tucker/suspension

Mark Medina

Jeremy Lin looking forward to ‘fresh start’ with Lakers bit.ly/1rA5aNF

Kobe, Booz, Lin in ... maybe for a few more mins, before getting some rest. #EverybodyUp #NBAonBTV #HoopJunkies

Mike Trudell

Kobe, Boozer and Lin back in at the 9:53 mark, next to Price and Davis. 91-70 HOU.

Jonathan Feigen

Bryant, Boozer, Lin return. Rockets up 21, but still 9:53 left. Ariza back as soon as Kobe gets up.

David Hardisty

This is the best Jeremy Lin has looked for the Rockets in at least 18 months. Harden has 32. Rockets up 85-69 heading to 4th..

Mike Bresnahan

If the Lakers want to get back into this thing, they'll need more from Lin...he has 4 points on 1-for-4 shooting in 23 mins.

Jonathan Feigen

Lin, invisible in the first half, has done a great job of breaking down the Rockets defense off the dribble in the third quarter.

Mike Trudell

Lin to Davis was among LAL's best features this preseason, and nets another layup here as LAL gets back within 9. Lin up to 4 dimes.

Jinno Rufino

Kobe has defected to Lin and Booz in this quarter, seems to be working. #EverybodyUp #NBAonBTV #HoopJunkies

Mike Trudell

It was 62-45 at halftime ... it's now 66-59 with a 14-4 spurt for the home team. Lin's leading the charge on offense.

Jinno Rufino

Lin can get to the basket almost any time, teammates must find open spots for drop. #EverybodyUp #NBAonBTV #HoopJunkies

Mike Trudell

LAL's offense right now relies on 2 things: Lin penetration and Kobe elbow/post catches. Lin's cooking since Howard got his 4th PF.

Jabari Davis

LAL fans may be surprised w/the frequency that Lin is able to get into the teeth of the def, but he tends to routinely get to/near the rim

Mike Trudell

Carlos Boozer has 8 points in the first 5 minutes of the 3rd Q (13 total), including a layup off another Jeremy Lin drive. LAL within 9.

Jenny Dial Creech

Well this isn’t a good run for the Rockets.. Lakers cut the lead to 9 points. And Jeremy Lin has a lot to do with that.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Lin off to a MUCH better start in the second half, Lakers have rallied to within 11. BK

Eric Pincus

Lin creates for Boozer, 66-57 with 7:45 left in 3rd

Mike Trudell

With Howard sitting, Lin this time got all the way to the rim and finished through a foul from Jones. And-1 cuts HOU lead to 11.

Eric Pincus

Lin drives for his first fg and the foul - Lakers trying to hang around, trim it down to single digits - easier w/Howard in foul trouble

Jinno Rufino

There should be a stat on how many times Lin gets thrown to the ground. #EverybodyUp #NBAonBTV #HoopJunkies

Eric Pincus

Jeremy Lin's first points as a Laker come at the line

Jenny Dial Creech

Howard just picked up his 4th foul - on Lin, who yesterday at practice said the best way to contain Howard was to get him in foul trouble.

Mike Trudell

HOU has among the NBA’s best answer for Lin’s attacking style with Beverley on ball and Howard lurking. Lin 0 for 2, 2 assists in 14 min.

Janis Carr

Kobe to Lin for a bucket gets sleepy crowd going. Lakers trail, 49-38, with 3:03 left in second qtr. #nbareg

Mike Trudell

Take Lin’s penetration away as Beverley has, LAL will struggle to get open shots. LAL are 14 of 39 (36%) after Boozer/Kobe B2B hoops.

Jinno Rufino

Boozer 3pt play after handoff from Lin. Harden hits 3 on Kobe's face. 49-31 HOU #everybodayup #NBAonBTV #Hoopjunkies 49=34

Arash Markazi

Lakers point guards Jeremy Lin, Ronnie Price and Jordan Clarkson are a combined 1 of 11 from the field.

Mike Trudell

Beverley is the worst matchup for Lin … practiced against each other all year and Beverley is playing terrific PG defense. Lin yet to score.

Mike Trudell

Kobe’s back in at 9:02 of the 2nd, which would put him at 18 minutes in the half if he doesn’t rest. LAL down 12 as Boozer/Lin/Hill return.
