ready as ever. BRING IT ON!
YESSSS!!!! Great Start! Knicks 13 - Lakers 4. JLin Ballin!
Seems like they're starting to play Kobe up on JLin now. C'mon Jer! LETS GO!!!
haha. they are double teaming lin now. also lin got fouled so many times and it's not called.
wtf lin has a huge ass bruise on this left arm
Blake and Fisher bruising JLin, but JLin abusing them...
Crazy spin move! and the finish!
Yea that was real pretty. They're playing him super-physically probably in attempts to break him down and get him fatigued faster.
Magic compares him to nash/stockton + says hes the real deal.
Magic also correctly predicted that Rubio was for real, too. Even when other analysts dismissed Rubio after he struggled in the Euro league last year. Magic's opinion obviously carries 10000X more weight and expertise than the average talking head.
Very true. Magic is considered one of the games greatest PGs to ever play the game.
Magic is by far the best PG to ever play the game
Career Halftime high. 18 pts, 5 asts. Heck i would've been happy with those numbers at the end of the game. Its just halftime! GO Lin and go Knicks!
I have a funny feeling it's gonna come down to Kobe and JLin in the final seconds.
I hope not. Knicks should probably be lead by like 20 now but Bill Walker is bricking shots. Really need to play Novak. Lakers are actually doing a good job on Lin but Knicks are doing a better job on Kobe
close game, its going to be a battle to get Lin's 4th straight win.
YAAAAAAAAAAAAHThis is what makes Jeremy special. The bigger the stage, the greater the pressure, the better he is.
2 straight huge 3s by Lin... linsanity!
damn, they changed one of the 3's to just a 2 pointer!
He tore it up tonight. 38pts!!!! TOs, not so great. But 38pts!!!
JLin Killed it tonight. No more doubting this guy. He did it against a vetern defensive smart team. No excuses. Jlin is for real and the Knicks are winning. The guy exceeded my expectation. Thought he would only get 21 pts but 38!? OMG! Put this game in the rookie vs sophomore game now! God Bless Jlin and may God bless america!
wow Jlin fan, you f'ing nailed it with the 3 point call... i figured he'd be neutralized in the paint with bynum and gasol, but he still took it in...drains the 3's for the hell of it LOL!
NO, LET HIM REST! MY PARENTS (LAKER FANS AND SELF-HATING DUMBASSES) ARE GUNNA GET SOME JEREMY LIN POSTERS SENT TO THEIR DOORSTEPS! =)
Can't wait to see reporters ask Kobe if he knows who Jeremy Lin is next time.
post game interview.reporter: you know who lin is now?kobe: the yellow mamba?

David Lee offered Lin his apartment in White Plains. Jeremy, come by for dinner, I'm 5 minutes away in Scarsdale! Jlinfan#1, I think we can get rid of the survey "What Happens on Asian Heritage Night?". What a week!!!!!!
Jeremy Lin is the best player in the entire NBA right now. Forget the Rookie Sophomore game. Lin should be a Commissioner's pick for the East All Stars. And if Lin keep this up, he will be the first undrafted player to win MVP. What amazes me even more is that Lin is dominating while playing a team concept. He is the biggest supporter of his teammates (most of whom are making minimum wage) and in turn they support him. Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Isiah Thomas, and today's Kobe Bryant are the best guards I have ever seen. Right now Lin is playing as well as any of them have ever played.
After following Jlin, as many of you have, for the past 2 1/2 years, I can't express how happy I am for the guy. It was a gutsy, amazing performance out there by all of the Knicks players. Their D was phenomenal. they made a few unnecessary TO's in the last quarter but played like champions as a team. Shump and Jeffries in particular stepped up, even Novak on D! Every Dleague game, every night of disappointment waiting for coach Smart to give Lin a chance, enduring all of the doubters disparaging comments...has all been worth it to see Jeremy demonstrate what we all believed he was capable of. Thanks to the guy who selflessly updates this Blog for all of us who are hanging on every accomplishment
somewhere along the way people forgot lin is a really good defender. he made some really nice defensive plays out there.
I do not usually follow basketball, but I was drawn to Jeremy Lin because he is the first American born NBA player of Asian descent. And I was drawn to tonight's game due to the talk, hype, and publicity about him. And he was absolutely stunning. I never seen anything like it -- an Asian-American player dominating in the NBA. It is an indescribable feeling. I can't help but think this is something historical.I know Jeremy will stay focused and committed. He is humble and has a good head on his shoulder. Keep it up. Don't get distracted. You are inspiring.
Whoa guys best player in the NBA? Let's slow down there... :)I'm kind of tired of seeing these articles talk about how he doesn't have the physical prowess like DRose or Chris Paul. People didn't think he could shoot, play d, and now they don't think he's strong or fast. The prejudice is incredible... The dude scores off the charts for agility ratings and he is clearly more than physical enough if he can play against the LAKERS. Geez.
ESPN says:"Lin has had four straight games of at least 20 points and seven assists. The only other player to have a streak of that length this season- LeBron James."He may not be the best, but right now, he's playing like the best!
Yea, if i had a dime for every time i heard the adverb "deceptively" used to describe his speed and agility I'd be rich.
"Deceptively" doesn't bother me. It's true. He's isn't Russell Westbrook or John Wall in terms of raw speed. He's got a quick first step and and great body control."Surprisingly" athletic or quick or strong, on the other hand, annoys the hell out of me.
Why should I slow down?There is no player in the NBA hotter than Lin right now. He is leading a team with one All Star and a bunch of minimum wage guys on a leaguewide winning rampage. Nobody, not even Lebron, could win with such little talent beside him on the court. Lin has gone up against serious All Star talent (John Wall WILL become an All Star one day) and dominated the way an MVP would. So far, nobody has been able to stop him. After tonight, I am not sure if anybody can. Put in front of us somebody who's playing better than Lin right now and I shall "slow down".
I am not sure John wall will ever be an all-star. He is over-rated. And way too many good PG in the league now. It is a PG dominated league, will be hard for john wall to be an all-star, with JLin around :)
Well, I did predict Lin was capable of playing at an All Star level. And now I'm doing the same thing for Wall. John Wall is a very young player who should be in his junior year of college. He is learning how to be effective in the NBA as a team player. I have always believed that it takes time for young pgs to develop, even for Kyrie Irving whose coach Byron Scott is limiting his minutes because of poor defense. When I think of Lin vs. Wall, I think of Michael Jordan vs Clyde Drexler. Like Wall, Clyde was the ultimate physical specimen at SG and played well on both ends. But Clyde did not have the perfection of fundamentals that Jordan had developed. Still, Clyde was a deserving All Star and NBA champion. If you look closely, John Wall played better against Lin than any of the All Star guards that have played against him. I am rooting for John Wall to become so good that the Lin vs. Wall debate becomes like Magic vs. Larry.
All I can say is WOW !
He did it against a very strong defense. I am impressed. He still needs to work on things here and there as well as work on making those open Js and Lin will be hard to stop. But it would be nice to see adjustments from lin to counter this type of defense. It's too bad tomorrow's game isn't on national tv somewhere :(.He definitely needs to cut down on his TO. But The Linning continues!
THE CATALYST LETS GO JEREMY YOU CAN DO IT THE HUMAN RACE BELIEVES IN YOU AND LOVES WHAT YOUR ARE DOING YOU REPRESENT THE HARD WORKING UNDERDOG WHO DECIDED TO REMAIN DILIGENT AND PERSEVERED THROUGH MANY OBSTACLES AND MAY YOU CONTINUE GOD BLESS LETS GO KNICKS
He's so good now, we won't even have to make a big deal about it. It'll just be "Jeremy had another 20-10 game today and played great defense blah blah blah another game tomorrow."Lovin' it!
89 pts in first 3 starts most since the meter ... This man is ssseeeerrriiiioooouuusssss

it would be better if the commentators didn't shout "fuck" every 5 seconds...
Give it up for Kobe, though. After the game, he gave Lin major props and indirectly called out the Warriors and Rockets:"Players don't usually come out of nowhere. If you can go back and take a look, his skill level was probably there from the beginning, but no one ever noticed."http://www.usatoday.com/sports/basketball/nba/story/2012-02-09/Lins-third-career-high-in-a-row-leads-Knicks-past-Lakers/53045018/1
Thanks for sharing the article. Read Kobe's comments and was as impressed as you were by his willingness to acknowledge Lin's performance and talent.
We have it all wrong. Jeremy's offense is not limited to the pick n roll. He barely used it tonight. He was hitting open guys, penetrating, shooting J's, navigating through double teams,....He showed tonight he doesn't only excel in D'antoni's system. He put up better numbers and even more dominating not really doing the pick n roll. He can be an asset to any team in the NBA. I hope the Knicks see that and give him a fat bonus this year. He is way underpaid right now.
Growing up a Lakers fan, I love the purple and gold intensely...but tonight I rallied behind JLIN. - (I've been following Jeremy when he first hit the SI article as a Jr at Harvard). It was amazing to see him drop 38 against my team. And I'm totally stoked to see it done despite everyone in TV, sportswires, game analysts, try to moon walk and hedge themselves all becuase they can't believe that that an Asian American can ball. Way to Go Jeremy!
He carried the team tonight again. His teammates were struggling an he picked up their slack. He beat a really good team with 2 franchise teammates out. He's going to win 10 in a row and make the playoffs.
