Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Doing Great, Byron Scott Not so Much

Posted on 2 Mar, 2015, by in NBA

The Oklahoma City Thunder without Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant have no business beating anyone, but the Los Angeles Lakers take pride in their losing ways, or at least their head coach Byron Scott and front office do, once again letting a great game from Jeremy Lin go down in a wasteful mismanagement of playing time and substitutions.

Posted on 20 Dec, 2014, by in NBA

Not for the first time this season, the Los Angeles Lakers looked a lot better when Kobe Bryant wasn’t playing, including a very good but short game for Jeremy Lin in a 104-103 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, with the name of the selfish scorer written all over another disappointing ending.

Even though the Oklahoma City Thunder have injuries, there’s no reason for them to look this bad against the Los Angeles Lakers, the worst team in the West.

Kobe Bryant Gives Lakers Some Breathing Room

Posted on 19 May, 2012, by in NBA

Kobe Bryant was, well, what you expect from Bryant after two losses, especially at home. Deadly efficient, clutch, close to unstoppable. When Bryant gets angry but remains focused, this is how it goes. He finished with 36 points while shooting a perfect 18-18 from the line, giving the Lakers a bit more breathing room with a 99-96 win.
