Video: The Jeremy Lin Show Continues vs Lakers

Another Linsane performance by the Knicks guard.

Like everybody else, we were skeptical about this whole Jeremy Lin phenomenon in the beginning, but now it appears that the hype is very—or at least somewhat—real. Watch the Knicks guard torch the unsuspecting Lakers above.

    this dude belongs in the league no doubt about that.

  • Towelie

    Atleast he got his chance.

    So all this time the Knicks only needed a pg with a heart the size of Manhattan? Go figure

  • shutup

    I didnt know sh!t about Lin before 4 games ago, but I’m rooting for him, definitely makes things interesting for the bottom of the eastern conference.

  • golakeshow

    Jeremy Lin is a stupid loser

  • chinadian123

    @golakeshow stfu… I know u a Laker fan.. so am I but respect what JLin did stop being a hater just because Lakers lost…smh..

  • http://facebook.com/tronjohnson Chief

    Legit night and win for Lin and the knicks. I do believe his cross-up of Wall was more impressive than a night where he shows the garden faithful how over the hill Derek Fisher is. And Steve Blake can’t guard anything. The lakers are crap this year, other than having Bryant and Gasol.

  • OTB

    I find it funny that people still doubt the kid. His production is bound to fall off, but if you can drop 38 points on the Lakers (and do most of the damage in the paint against Gasol and Bynum’s outstretched arms), you have talent. Unfortunetly, that talent is going to be killed once Melo is back.

  • shutup

    That spin move was sick, not sure any other pg in that position woulda been able to stop him.

  • doyouwantmore

    Laker fans are only happy when they’re on top. As soon as the Lakers don’t have the refs and league office helping them win championships half of their fan base shrinks. I was a Sonics fan, win or lose. I am Kings fan, win or lose. Lakers fans really care about fame, stardom, and shiny gold uniforms – but not basketball.

  • Sonicproof

    True that, doyouwantmore. Laker fans are as fickle as they come.

  • Red

    Kid has made my nba fantasy team happy. With that said he’s a fluke!! Lol jk but he’ll be just a decent player but he’ll be an All-star next year all of China will vote for him because Yao helps him.

  • Bill

    Short Asian dude that’s only in his 2nd yr, and was never even drafted dropped 38 pts on the Lakers. “Wack Mamba”, Chokey Bryant, who’s in his 13th yr decided not to play until it was too late and lost.

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    Lin definitely has game. That stop and go style, is a lot like Steve Nash, and is a durable and effective one. This is no flash in the pan. The only question is whether he gets the minutes and touches once the ball stoppers return. Hopefully, D’Antoni recognizes how much better the Knicks look as a unit with the current guys they have.

  • logues

    all he does is lin

    is golakeshow a fan of the laker…

    Click my name, for The Post Up a little over 6 weeks ago when I “broke the news” on Dec.27 at 10:40 am that the Knicks claimed Jeremy Lin…Then check out JTaylor21′s comment at Dec.27 at 11:08 am…PRICELESS! LMFAO!

  • Kobester

    As asian guy who loves to play and watch basketball, I am so inspired and excited right now…..

  • http://www.yahoo.com Red

    Yeah he was a fluke, for a second I actually thought this kid would go far but tonight proved otherwise.

  • shutup

    they won tonight and the kid had 20

  • http://www.yahoo.com Red

    Off of 24 some shots & made only 8…ok.

  • buschfire

    better than what melo has been doing this season.

  • Startown

    Did you see the final play, fricken unreal, back pick mugs Rubio and then they give Lin the foul, one week into his career and Nevis getting Kobe calls?

  • http://www.yahoo.com Red

    Melo was injured a bunch, don’t try to argue if you’re gonna say Lin is better than Melo. And that was a bogus call, they should’ve called that.

  • http://redisahater.com boba

    so he’s not allowed to have a bad shooting night? and as for the volume of attempts, this knicks team needs him to score; novak can only drill so many treys.

    i feel like people are setting a ridiculous requirement for lin to be “for real”. WHAT MORE DO YOU PEOPLE WANT?

  • Red

    Uhm actually Shumpert had a stroke too, now you’re just being a Stan. There’s no reason for u to keep shooting if you miss 18 shots but you know Fields is killing it and so is Shumpert.

  • http://www.slamonline.com spit hot fiyah

    @orange i checked it out, preceless indeed lol. nice to see that u r showing up again after the knicks won a few games

  • ChipS

    I wish people would stfu about Melo being a problem when he comes back. He was the one who begged D’Antoni to give the kid run because he hates playing POINT FORWARD because he’s a SCORER not a setup man or point guard or whatever yall want to call it. And of course Lin has been better because not only was Melo outta his habitat, he was playing with 3 or 4 different injuries at the same time. And yeah Lin numbers will go down because their BEST players and Scorers are coming back but he will still be as effective. So I wish everbody will stop acting like this will be the first time Melo will play with a point guard. Iverson,Billups, and Andre Miller all dominated the ball and Melo still put up numbers. Melo can relax now and go back to doing what he does best. Besides, he knows whats being said/written about him, he knows how the media and NYC fans is, he don’t want to prove them right. Reminds me of 08-09 Denver when he was injured all year and not shooting the ball well and everybody doubted him. In comes new point guard, team gets on a roll, playoffs come, he becomes lethal. Give him a chance!

  • http://www.yahoo.com Red

    Agreed, Lin will still produce, but more so with assists, I predict he’ll get monster assist numbers but his scoring will plummet.

  • http://SLAMONLINE.COM LakeShow

    Kid is Linsane. BA dum chahh! He is, as they would say, legit.

  • shutup

    lmao startown, did you see rubio dribble the ball of his foot? talk about calls or no-calls but Lin did his thing sorta makes me think maybe you wouldnt be so high on rubios success if he didnt play for your team, as for Lin cant say I like the Knicks but his story is inspiring, want nothing but success for him.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Slick Ric

    ^ hypocrites

  • BBaller

    Lin with another W

  • WHITE_MAMBA_IS_GOAT

    @golakeshow …. He’s stupid? He’s from Harvard!

  • balLin

    @red Fluke? He had 20pts, 6 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals and won the game on a free throw. You’re right. Those numbers are seriously overrated. 8 for 24? Wow he’s terrible. If only he put up numbers like Kobe did when they played like 11 for 29. That Kobe. What a fluke. (that’s sarcasm btw for those who can’t tell).

    I think people who believED that Lin would score 30+ ppg were insane. The kid is a great NBA point guard who is playing above his level right now because they are short two all-stars on his team because he has to in order for the Knicks to win. I think naturally his numbers obviously will calm down because it’s not necessary to try and score so much when Melo and Amare are back. Winning games is the ultimate prize, not individual statistics. They found their point guard. Not a “fluke”.

  • Red

    He’s not Kobe simple as that.

  • projectphantom

    who is comparing Lin to Kobe? or Melo for that fact? If being a fluke is averaging 25 and 8 thru your first 4 NBA starts,ill take a team full of “flukes”

  • ChipS

    2-15-12. He’s coming! He’s back. Coaches will cringe and he will troll his opponents!

  • Red

    A fluke is taking 24 shots & only making 8, I wouldn’t ever take that. I’d rather take a consistent, disciplined point guard who is humble, Derrick Rose maybe? Yeah you guys are hype fiends.

  • fruizm

    Those of you that say that its pure luck or hes a fluke…you have never played bball in your life! Its hard to score 38 in a pick up game…this kid is getting 38 against the LAKERS…say hwat you want, he can BALL. I dont even like him that much, but he can definitely BALL…

  • Startown

    Shutup: my point was refs determined outcome, wasn’t Lin or Rubio, both played poorly in second half, you have to watch the game in order to understand.

  • Red

    Oh he can ball all right that’s not being said, him getting as many points was a product of not being paid attention to on D & bad teams. Once he played consistent big men he couldn’t hit it anymore. 8 of 24, he’s a decent role player.

  • shutup

    I did watch the game, there was no call to be made when Rubio turned the ball over is all I’m saying, poor execution and overall sloppy play plagued the end of the game for both teams. it was just a matter of execution, Rubio also missed a layup at the end along with Kevin Love’s airball. @red Ive seen Rose go 4-17 against the warriors so and 8-22 against the hawks 9-21 against boston,11-28 against the Heat lmao. This kid is nothing but humble, he gives credit to his team all the time, just because he didnt shoot over 50% this game what does that prove? Hype is giving credit to someone that hasnt earned it, which was my initial problem with Rubio, but now after producing much like Lin is doing you cant help but want the best for these young players.

  • projectphantom

    @ red im overly hype on Lin. Its just a cool story. So D rose never shot bad in a game or had a inconsistent night? Fluke? smh. HIS TEAM WON THE GAME. He isn’t going to shoot lights out everyday. no one does in the NBA, Not even even the best pg in the league your boy D-Rose. BTW knicks are 5 and 0 with him on the court.

  • Red

    Don’t compare Lin with a NBA MVP lol. Yeah Lin is a good distributer because of lax D and will continue to rack up assists cause he’s getting better because of this experience. They’re 5-0 because of horrible teams mostly not to say he hasn’t helped of course & don’t say the Lakers are good please

  • projectphantom

    I’m not comparing them!!! he is not rose, not even close lol. They played “horrible” teams, but remember they had no stat or melo. they were supposed to be horrible in there absents too. when you have jerred jefferies in your starting line up…….uhh ill be nice here and say your team has no hope. winning is everything!I GUARANTEE the Lin story wouldn’t be 1/4th what it is now if they went 0-5 or 1-4 with his same numbers.

  • swiftyk

    the Jeremy Lin story is in it’s first couple pages. he’s playing great right now, best first 4 starts in history they’re saying on espn. personally, i think that after teams have enough footage of him to scout him, he will slow down. but, i’d much rather see him go off all year long; it’d make a better story, and it would be better for basketball in general. the greats are supposed to beat the bad teams, so i don’t see how you could use that against him.

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    The Knicks were horrible. This was WITH Melo and Stat. Without those two $$$$ guys, the Knicks should be super horrible, right? So if your team is super horrible and you beat horrible teams (somehow we’re categorizing the Lakers among this mix), that’s still something, no?

  • Red

    I agree it wouldn’t be but it just happened they played bad teams. The Stat-Melo duo isn’t working its because they’re that he’s doing well, if he can be a distributor though(Lin) then The Melo-Stat duo may work out.

  • Name

    Red, you’re a complete moron. Rose routinely has 8-24, 9-28, 10-29 type nights. Also funny that you completely disregarded the first four games where he averaged 25+ on 58% shooting while dramatically boosting the production of guys like Jefferies and Novak. More importantly, Knicks have won their last five games with him playing huge minutes and they’re the 8th seed at the moment.

  • Red

    Against horrible teams with suckie D, but once he played against a premier PG with D(Rubio) he shot 8 of 24. But yet I’m the moron, cause it isn’t you who’s being a stan & ignoring the truth of it all.

  • shutup

    Rubio didnt change the shots that Lin was getting, he was still getting to the cup, his lift was just gone. Dude is still sleeping on peoples couches. even with going 8-24 he went for 20/8 with the win. I wasnt comparing them other than the fact that the stat of 8-24 isnt a indicator, because if it was then Rose would fall in that category too.

  • shutup

    and just saw this little tidbit on espn Iverson had 101 , Shaq had 100 and Jordan had 99 in their first four starts, Lin has 109; take it how you will dude already has an NBA record.

  • swiftyk

    every team has a defense with nba caliber players. it’s not like lin is out there playing with kids, they’re all “professionals”.

  • Red

    Again Lin isn’t Rose not even close. Bad teams & him not coming out of nowhere while secretly having been a decent player. Decent as in he could be a good role player.

  • Startown

    Rubio and barea played good defense on Lin… if you hold a guy to 33 percent shooting what moe can you ask. Sure he’s tired all NBA players are struggling with that. Lin looks to be a solid guard, there are several good point guards in the league, and it is very rare that anyone shuts down Rose, Westbrook, Nash, Parker, or any of the top guards!

  • http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=pawtucketymca Gametimeweezy

    @Red…. You are right bro and I’m a diehard Knicks fan and I can totally agree you see Lin with the same respect that I do and also see he’s no where close to being ELITE yet…. A good role player and a spot starter while players are injured? Yupp that’s what he is right now. And he needs to consistently play this way against the inferior point guards. Hopefully there will be less pressure on him when Stat and Melo get back to the point where I don’t really want to see him have to SHOOT twenty times a games ya know. He’s not going to hit them all, only Durant does that. Sometimes the matchups WON’T be in his favor… But when our elite players get back they better allow Jeremy Lin to enhance what they do.

  • projectphantom

    You tell us to not compare Lin with Drose and whoever else. But you bring rose’s name up every time you type Lin’s name? What point are you trying to make about Lin. That he’s a 1.)fluke? 2.)hasn’t proved? 3.) inconsistent? 1.)20 and 8 every time he steps on the court 2.) 5-0 isn’t that as consistent as you can get 100% winning percentage? 3.) oh yeah he already has NBA records not even your beloved drose couldn’t break)

  • http://www.yahoo.com Red

    He’ll be an All-Star, but again he’s a role-player. I mention Rose cause you guys act like he’s elite not me. Ok he broke MJs record too, so guess he’s now the next MJ all right great logic. AGAIN he played bad teams & came out of nowhere. The kid reminds me of a less Rondo imo.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Chubachuchi

    @Red you have never picked up a basketball or never seen any other nba team play but your hometown haven’t you? 8-24 are rose-esque fg numbers and i love the dude, its either him or cp3 for the point guard crown. In Lin’s first 4 games he shot 58%, that is craazzyy for any player, especially for a point guard. Lin is not even close to a John Wall (who he scored twenty something and 10 dimes against)let alone DRose, but you have to give him credit, what he does isn’t a joke. I bet you can’t even score 20 on a recleague and Lin dropped 38 on a Lakers team with 2 7-foot behemoths waiting to wack his sh*t.

  • http://hoopshype.com/salaries/new_york.htm Gametimeweezy

    I’m trying to give the benefit of the doubt for some people. No one is really comparing Lin to Derrick Rose other that they both have shot 8 for 24 are they? Breaking records? Oh is that what ESPN said? The reality is BONAFIDE superstars Stat and Melo WILL be walking through that door.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Red

    Lol…when have I not given him credit? Maybe when I said he’d be an All-Star next year? LOL wow, yes he did good. He’ll be a great role-player for the Knicks I predict & propel them unless Baron is 1st string. Actually those aren’t D Rose numbers, apparently NBA MVPs do 8 on 24 shooting..wow.

  • balLin

    @red

    Rubio couldn’t stop him in the first half. He shot 7 for 12 and scored 15pts. Everyone including reporters, coaches, players, all said that Lin simply fatigued and should have sat at least 4-5 mins in the second half to get his legs back. Rubio proved nothing except he can stop a tired Lin after NOT being able to stop him in the first half.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I think I know where you are going with your Lin sh*t talking. And if I’m reading what you write beneath your ignorant outbursts, I agree. He’s NOT on the same level as D. Rose or the point guards out there as of RIGHT NOW. But to bring back my entire argument to why I started with you in the beginning, he’s no fluke. He’s just starting a career. Yes, most of us are breathing his hype. But you’re also breathing his demise. 1 off game in the second half and now he’s a fluke? C’mon man. That’s as extreme as us nut huggers in the opposite direction.

  • http://hoopshype.com/salaries/new_york.htm Gametimeweezy

    But seriously he’s been on fire for 5 straight games why would anybody scrutinize at this point it’s all the laws of averages anyways. Lin actually stands to start having a few off games now.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Chubachuchi

    @Red I’ve been following Rose since his Simeon days being from Chicago; starting from last year his fg began to plummet because he had to take alot of shots because the Bulls offense is modeled that way. Your @ss a fair weather fan or in denial if you think Rose has a high fg percentage, I’m a hardcore bulls fan and personally I’d take Rose over cp3 just cause of my bias. Everybody knows Rose is a high volume scorer, not the most efficient scorer fg wise but still the most valuable player in the league nonetheless. Yes, the reigning MVP has 8-24 number nights more than your average player but he’s still the best, you better start checking on his fg stats once in a while.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Red

    Demise? By saying he’ll be an All Star?! LOL WOWWWW you guys have 0 arguments though. Oh, newsflash 100% of the league is fighting fatigue, this kid has been resting while NBA players were playing back to backs he had a leg up, he wasn’t at a disadvantage with fatigue wtf smh

  • http://www.slamonline.com Chubachuchi

    PS he doesn’t remind me of Rondo at all, Rondo is faster and passes better but at the same time I’ve never seen him make a 3 lol

  • ballLin

    @red Yes. That’s why Kobe and the Lakers didn’t have trouble after going OT with the Celtics against the Knicks. That’s why after scoring 38 against the Lakers, obviously fatigue couldn’t POSSIBLY have anything to do w/ the second half of the game. You’re right. 0 argument. smh. stfu.

  • startown

    Check back at the end of the year and we will see if anyone is offering their point guard for Lin straight up? Look at the NBA, more than half of the teams have a very good point guard. Jennings for Lin, Rose for Lin, Wall for Lin, Collison for Lin, Lowry for Lin, Rondo for Lin, Lawson for Line… just to name a few… none of them will do it.

  • startown

    All players are tired the schedules have been brutal, Chicago had something like 9 straight road games, every player that plays significant minutes is tired and the shooting and defense shows it.

  • Red

    Lol.

  • red is a numnut

    red is a total numnuts. dood is talkin complete nonsense. don’t even bother tryin to get him to change his mind, cuz he’s been drinkn the hatorade. when REAL nba analysts (including stephen a. smith, magic johnson, michael wilbon, chris broussard, jon barry… just to name a few) are convinced of lin’s talents and leadership… why would some red’s retarded opinion matter? nothin but a troll. lin, a role-player? tell that to NY head coach mike dantoni. most likely, he (along w/ the rest of us with real bball knowledge) will not pay any attention.

  • shutup

    Startown, game time and practice time are totally different, have you played ball before? the energy it takes to start a game and in front of a crowd and to dominate 4 games, and he still hit the winning free throw, after putting 109 points in four starts dude has the right to be tired, the Knicks are riding the wave hes getting more NBA minutes than he ever has, he had the pressure about getting cut weighing on him and he’s sleeping on someones couch while he did it, why cant people just be happy for someones hoop dream to come true?

  • Startown

    Shut up;,please…want to compare trophy rooms, if you say Lin is great, than I’m going opposite, as you have been wrong on your assessments this year.
