Magic Johnson

Jeremy Lin is going to be a good starting PG for the Lakers w/ his ability to get in the lane and create shots for himself & his teammates.

Mark Medina

Chris Kaman made rounds in connecting with the Lakers before the game and at halftime. Not enough empty seats to reenact Cleveland scene

Lakers lead at half, 50-13. Veteran watcher @Mark Medina says this is their best defensive half. Guess that says something

Starting with last night's game, the @Los Angeles Lakers players were gaining confidence and it has carried over to tonight's game, even without Kobe.

Blazers down 8 after 1. Younger bench unit got outplayed by Lakers reserves to close the quarter. Jeremy Lin with 5 points in 4 minutes.

Jovan Buha

The Lin-Davis pick-and-roll is the driving force of the Lakers' second-unit offense. Randle's full-court drives are gravy.
