BS’s (Byron Scott) Mismanagement of Lin’s Minutes Nearly Cost Lakers the Game vs. Hawks

I don’t have time to write much, but wanted to, once again, rant. I find that even when Lakers win, I’m still not happy. BS’s management of Lin’s and Kobe’s minutes has been an issue with me all season. And, of course, tonight was no different. Lin is usually the first guy to come out of the first quarter (although in tonight’s game Lin was not the first guy to come out of the first quarter) and the last starter to return in the second quarter. How does that make any sense. And also, shouldn’t BS be limiting Kobe’s minutes. That was all the talk in training camp and in preseason. Instead, BS is riding Kobe like freaking Secretariat. In what universe does BS think this is reasonable?

In training camp, there was all this talk about how Lin will be the one playing the bulk of the minutes. But it’s now become very apparent that BS is going to limit Lin’s minutes for no good reason, except for his irrational favoritism of Ronnie Price.

In tonight’s game, Lin had one of his best games (ended with 15 points and 10 assists) and played only 30 minutes. how does that make any sense? Not only that, BS would sit Lin for long stretches. For example, even though Lin was one of the first starters to sit in the 3rd quarter, BS waited until around the six-minute mark in the 4th quarter to bring Lin back in along with Kobe and Hill. Kobe, of course, played the ENTIRE 3rd quarter, as usual. In fact, if you look carefully, BS had planned on subbing Kobe and Hill BEFORE Lin in the 4th quarter, but there was no dead ball, so by the time the whistle came a lot of time had already been taken off the clock as Kobe and Hill were waiting to check back in. So BS decides to call Lin back in as well. Once again, I was SHOCKED, when I saw Kobe and Hill getting up to check back in while Lin was still sitting in the 4th quarter. BS makes absolutely no sense! I really don’t know how anyone can be so moronic about such simple matters.

Man, these NBA coaches really piss me off. I don’t know how much more I can handle watching this level of irrationality and idiocy. While the lead in the 4th quarter was quickly shrinking, BS kept Lin out the first half of the 4th quarter, even though Lin was the main catalyst for the Lakers doing so well. I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for him to bring Lin back in. And then when I saw Kobe and Hill walk up to check back in, while Lin was sitting (I know I already said this earlier, but I can’t help but repeat this point again) I was going out of my mind at what a complete moron BS is.

BS killed Lin’s rhythm. Lin was really on tonight, but sitting Lin for so long between the 3rd and 4th quarter really killed Lin’s momentum. This mismanagement of Lin’s minutes killed Lin’s rhythm last season with Rockets and a similar thing is happening again with BS and the Lakers. Also, BS pulled that crazy stunt where he takes Lin out in crunch time when he needs a defensive stop. Again, so irrational. It’s not like Ronnie Price wasn’t getting blown by by Schroder regularly.

What really sucks about all of this is that Lin can’t really tell BS to manage his minutes better, even though that would make a difference between the Lakers winning or losing. Lin can talk to the coach about how to better use him in terms of plays to run for him, etc., but as a player you can’t really come up to the coach and tell the coach to play you more without it pissing the coach off. But BS is really killing the Lakers’s chances of winning by the horrible and irrational way in which he’s managing Lin’s and Kobe’s minutes. I swear this is a big reason, among others, why the Lakers are doing so poorly. But, of course, this is the type of thing that none of the coaches are aware of, due to their lack of foresight. So this is not going to change and this is going to kill the Lakers all season long–especially later int he season when Kobe is really going to feel worn down with all the minutes.

I don’t know how it’s not clear to every Lakers coach and player that when Lin does well, the Lakers win games. In this sense, Lin is the MVP of this team. This is because Lin embodies the Spurs spirit. So when Lin is firing on all cylinders, the Lakers are playing team ball.

What was, once again, very disturbing in tonight’s win is that the Lakers reverted to standing around and watching Kobe in crunch time. Lakers got lucky and won a close game that shouldn’t have even been close in the first place if BS had substituted Lin back in way earlier in the 4th. In the future, Kobe hero balling in crunch time is going to continue to kill the Lakers. Unfortunately, this is something that Kobe and BS simply refuse to understand. So even though the Lakers got a win tonight, I’m still not happy with BS and I don’t think I will ever be happy with BS. BS has shown, so far, to be a completely incompetent coach. I’m not sure how much more of his idiocy I can handle. After two seasons with McFale, I don’t have much left in me. This is why my posts have just devolved into a series of rants. I have lost patience with most NBA coaches and, unfortunately for Lin and Lin fans, we have had to and continue to deal with the most idiotic of the idiotic coaches.

  • Agreed, Lin was doing very well until the 3rd quarter yank. Easily could have been a 20-10 game (25-15?). AND I CAN’T BELIEVE BS TOOK JLIN OUT WITH THE GAME ON THE LINE. It felt like Portland all over again. BS got away with one there.

    I’m seeing Ronnie Price the same way as Patrick Beverley. They give the illusion of defensive specialist, but I bet if you look at the numbers JLin still does better than Price just like he was better than Beverley.

    • Right on, Charlie! I did have flashbacks of Portland last night. These NBA coaches man…nothing I can do but just SMH.

  • MrPingPong

    It’s your blog, Philosopher. Rant and vent all you want. And for good reasons too! Perhaps Dr. Teng can share with you his bottle of Dom Peri to wash off the frustration. I am so used to seeing Lin being marginalized in thousands of ways that I am now immune to it.

    Substitute in Price for Lin to play defense in the waning minutes was quite McHale-ish, wasn’t it. I just laughed at the whole thing. I was ready for a loss after that happened. Yeah, the Lakers were lucky to get a win in my opinion. That missed three pointer by whoever that was at the end could have sent the game into over time.

    Anyway, Rockets tomorrow! I hope to get a cheap ticket to the game here in Houston. Wish me luck! Letzzz Gooo JL17!

    • Dr. Gary Teng

      Professor MrPingPong,

      I am just as frustrated with BS as our Philosopher is, if not more. I pretty much give up any hope on BS’ couching competence.

      You made an excellent point — Substitute in Price for Lin to play defense in the waning minutes was quite McHale-ish… But my reaction to BS’ farcical decision was very different. When I witnessed that with my own eyes, I did every brave men would have done in that situation — I cried. 🙁

      You made another great point — The Lakers were lucky to get a win… That missed three pointer was made by the first year NBA player Pero Antic from Macedonia who has a dismal three-point record of 25% so far (this stat does not include the 0-4 last night.)

      I have soooo many problems with BS’ couching genius. For example:

      1. (Wasted) Johnson does not deserve more than 5-minute playing time each game. (He played 31:55 minutes last night, second only to Kobe’ 36:57 minutes.)

      2. Ed Davis deserves to be the starter and plays as many minutes with Lin on court together as possible to provide screen and PnR for Lin. This dynamic duo is lethal, productive, and entertaining.

      3. (Runaway) Price is nothing more than a two-hit wonder kid but treated as the CP3 reincarnation.

      The list goes on and on…

      In all of those (seemly) irrational couching decisions, I see Kobe’s invisible hands are pulling the strings and calling the shots. If my guesstimation is correct, there is still some small hope in the post-Kobe era for the Lakers.

      Do I need to have my head examined ASAP?!

      BTW: Enjoy your game live at the Toyota Center tonight and don’t forget to bring some Prozac with you just in case. 🙂

      • Yeah, BS’s favoritism of Johnson is, indeed, also hurting the Lakers (I think Johnson averages the second most minutes for the Lakers). So many things wrong with BS’s coaching. Starting Ed Davis with Lin is a no-brainer, as well. And Price shouldn’t get more than 15 minutes a night.

    • Good luck getting tickets to the game! Not sure if I’ll be able to watch tonight’s game live. I may have to watch it pre-recorded tomorrow.

  • Steven Ko

    don’t blame BS. remember, he’s just a puppet for kobrick. and in crunch time LA will probably lose more than win because of kobrick. he has to be the hero. he cannot stand lin being the hero. but if this nonsense continues, it will eventually alienate swaggy and i think kobrick at least has an iota of respect for swaggy. it’s a win-win situation for kobrick and LA. if kobrick takes and makes low percentage shots in the 4th quarter and leads his team to a W, then he’s the hero. if they lose, they are simply tanking to keep a high draft pick. lastly, the nba is a black(ish) league. it would be unthinkable to have an asian wing player dominate…the repercussions would be enormous.

  • I couldn’t agree more. Scott is almost as stupid as McFail. His misuse of Lin and especially Bryant and Price is maddening. Jeremy was totally out of rhythm when he was inserted back into the game at the six minute mark of the fourth quarter and he never regained the flow he had in the third quarter. It befuddles me that these former players like Scott and McDickhead have such low basketball I.Q.’s. It is very frustrating to have to witness such lugheadedness in NBA coaches in general. Are there any good ones? Only a few I’m afraid.

    • BBallFanfromNYC

      Coaching and playing are different. I would not say that these guys have a low B-Ball I.Q. However, the coaching aspects, such as time management, ego management, recognizing and developing talent, yes, a lot of ex-player coaches lack that, though there are some former players who transition well to coaching, the most famous example being Phil Jackson.

    • Yes, watching NBA coaches “coach” is maddening, indeed. I need to just accept their idiocy, otherwise, I won’t be able to continue watching these games. Why do these guys have to be so goddamn dumb?! I can’t tolerate this level of stupidity.

  • MrPingPong

    Hello Lin fans/non-fans, just making conversation here…

    First I’m happy to announce that I was able to buy a cheap ticket to the game tonight at Toyota Center in H-town. It’s not the best of seats, but it will do. I’m sure there will be a large contingent of Lakers fans in the crowd tonight, as Lakers fans are really everywhere! It’ll be fun watching Lin vs Bev, Kobe vs D12 and most entertaining of all, the mind game between BS vs KMc.

    I scan the WEB for game previews and for obvious reasons, the Lakers are underdogs again. But think about this: Rockets PF Terrence Jones is sitting out due to injury and D12 is being investigated for child abuse. So it’s up to Harden, who just came off a very bad game against the Grizz, to carry the Rockets. Unless it’s the playoff, Harden usually bounces back really quickly after a lousy performance. The question is who is going to guard Harden this time? Tough mind game again for BS!

    Dr. Teng, I won’t bring any Prozac along, but I will bring a spare battery for my smart phone to video the game as I usually did in past seasons. Should I look to buy a Rockets JLin 7 jersey at Toyota Center clearance corner? Such a jersey will be a highly valued collector’s item, don’t yall think?

    JL17 will boss tonight! 🙂

    Have a great day/afternoon/evening everyone, wherever you are on the WEB!

    • I don’t keep up on anything Rockets related due to my gag reflex, regarding anything Rockets related. As a result, I didn’t know that TJones isn’t playing. Also didn’t know the news about Dwight. So he’s also not playing tonight? If that is so, then I think Lakers should win this game easily.

      • MrPingPong

        I don’t follow the Rockets either, except when they play the Lakers. Just found out about TJ and D12 when venturing over the Rockets fans sites. D12 has not been charged with anything, and he is playing tonight. Here’s a link to D12 news:

        Anyway, dunno how much this will affect D12’s psyche and the rest of his team. But it’s still a negative for the Rockets. I’d say attack the basket and cause him to commit fouls because right now his mind is not clear.

        • Dr. Gary Teng

          Professor MrPingPong,

          One way or the other, you are always out-smarting or out-humoring me. I am not too happy about this.

          Besides, you have a smart phone and I only have a dumb phone…

          I just can’t take it anymore! 🙁 🙂

          Anyway, hope you enjoy the game tonight. I believe that your mere presence will help Lin and the Lakers destroy that rotten Rockets on its launching pad!

          BTW: Please make sure your boiling blood won’t accidentally ignite that spare battery and cause it to implode in your pocket.

          • MrPingPong

            Dr. (Standup Comic) Teng: I dunno about me out-smarting or out-humoring you, but your comments made me laugh every time. Humans are social animals after all. We need to interact with one another in order to make sense out of all this BS nonsense! I wonder what the Dalai Lama would think of us LOFs. Does he watch the NBA at all? 🙂

  • Dr. Gary Teng

    Wow! I get a new title. I like it. 🙂

    I hate to admit that there is another thing I am very unhappy about — You get to watch the Lakers vs. Rockets game live at the Toyota Center and I get to watch the game on my broken black-and-white TV set.

    Who said that the world is just?!

    Anyway, wish you have a great time and I am looking forward to reading your field trip report.

    BTW: I learned from the website that Dalai Lama has a variety of hobbies (e.g., meditating, gardening, and repairing watches,) but watching the NBA is not one of them. I hope he will soon start watching the Lakers’ games and become a Lin fan too.

  • Ed

    So many things happening at the Lakers yesterday. I think there was a heated exchange between Lin and BS, there was almost a fight between Kobe and Lin. There definitely was finger pointing. Lin really has to not get Kobe into his head if he can. I predicted a rebellion of sorts, I think its happening and I am satisfied.

  • What a nice coincidence. Lin sits before Kobe again. The Rockets proceed to go on a 8-3 run to take the lead to end the 1st.

  • MrPingPong

    OK, Lin fans/non-fans, just came home from the game and finished my late dinner. I was stunned to see the video tribute to Jeremy Lin at half time. The crowd actually applauded Lin. More on the game later in the morning….

    • I’m surprised the crowd didn’t boo Lin. That’s good to hear.

      Anyway, I just finished watching the game pre-recorded. So I just found out now that the Lakers won.

      Lin was, once again, McHaled, because he has an allergic reaction to all things Rockets, like myself. I went over this theory in the first game between Lakers and Rockets:

      I think it’s interesting how this is the EXACT REVERSE of what happened with Lin when Lin was with Rockets and played in Madison Square Garden for the first time as a Rockets. If you recall, Lin came off of his worst game vs. Raptors the night before facing the Knicks at MSG. Lin turned into Linsanity overnight. And similarly (but in the EXACT OPPOSITE WAY), Lin had one of his best games as a Lakers getting 10 assists the night before facing the Rockets at Toyota Center and turned into the passive Lin. And had one of his worst games as a Lakers vs. Rockets at Toyota Center.

      As usual, Lin had a number of bad calls/no calls by the refs. Lin also had opportunities to draw fouls, but didn’t because he played too passively.

      Anyway, at least Lakers won. Nick Young has been a big help for the Lakers since he’s come back. I’m really impressed that he’s shown no rust.

      • ashley

        I didn’t watch the game but has read enough from fans that expressed their disappointment in Lin. I’m glad our Philosopher isn’t one of them–because there is a theory to tell what’s happened with Jeremy! Oh, I just hope he could figure out sooner how to handle the Rox and Beverley’s defense, and perhaps just try to play like Kobe or Nick Young and get better stats. He’s been labeled inconsistent and hasn’t been able to turn things around. It seems that he’s facing the same obstacles playing with a ball hogging teammate and under a McHale-like coach and is playing worse than before. Sigh!

        • Forthelin

          I watched pieces of the game, but from what I saw, Lin seemed to be doing a decent job of getting in front of Beverly, especially in the last quarter. I didn’t see Lin score, and he did play passively. One issue with Lin is that if he doesn’t get his confidence going at the beginning with a few baskets, or get a couple of calls his way, he tends to start losing his game. He seems not to do so well in back to back games. I can see where Kobe’s advice to Lin can be valuable. I’m not a Kobe fan, but he has an arrogant confidence in himself and, from his comments about Lin, wants to see that in his teammates, and he will bully them until they fight back on the court or leave the team. I don’t like Scott’s management of Lin’s minutes either, but from a coach’s pov, minutes are basketball currency. You can’t keep giving out money and not getting what you want in return. That said, Scott also needs to man up and focus on wins, which can only be done with teamball, Lin’s strength, or Kobeball, which is entertainment. Can’t tell where management seems to stand on this.

        • Ashley,

          Lin has a great game the night before facing Rockets, then in the game after the Rockets game (vs. Mavs), Lin has another excellent game, so I think my theory about Lin being “McHaled” has credence.

  • MrPingPong

    OK folks, I went to Toyota Center early to check out the Rockets store. There were no Lin 7 jerseys but a few suspicious looking Melo Rockets 7 jerseys on clearance sale instead. I’m sure Knicks fans would love to get their hands on these.

    At pre-game shoot around, Lin seems relaxed shooting effortlessly from various distances and angles. And when he swished that 3 ptr in the first minute of the game, I said to myself, ‘here we go, payback time’, but that turned to be the only shot Lin made. But you know what, I’m OK with that because the other parts of Lin’s game was pretty descent and most importantly of all, his team won! Lin didn’t seem to have enough lift in his legs. He is just a human being with ups and downs, both mentally and physically. And the delusional LOF in me predicts he will bounce back in the Mavs game beautifully tonight! 🙂

    The Lakers’ victory can be sum up in one word: thievery! Who would have thunk that WJ is a good thief! 🙂 More seriously though, without D12 protecting the rim, the Lakers seemed to be able to attack the basket at will and without D12 in the low post on offense, the Lakers were allow to venture out and double-team Harden wearing Harden out and causing him to make mistakes. And Kobe was playing like Kobe, smooth as silk, “stubborn as a mule” (in his own words), keeping the game close with his undefendable turn-around fade-away jump shots. The crowd ooohs and aaahs every time Kobe touched the ball. And there were a lot of Kobe fans in the arena. In the end, Kobe iso beat Harden iso, thanks to WJ, the thief!

    Here is the first segment of my video of the game. I made it in B&W to replicate Dr. Teng’s B&W TV viewing experience. I assume his antique TV still has sound, so I left the sound on. More to come later! 🙂

    • Dr. Gary Teng

      Professor MrPingPong,

      I deeply enjoy reading your field trip report. Can’t wait to read more of it.

      I would like to sum up the Lakers’ victory in one word: Karma!

      In the last playoff game Rockets vs. Trail Blazers, McHell just wouldn’t let the last 0.9 second opportunity go wasted in trying to humiliating Lin. In the end, McHell only managed to make himself look like a god-damn fool in front the whole world.

      In this game, BS put Lin back on court in less than the last 4-minute playing time. Houston was leading Lakers by 5 points (91 to 85) with about 1:48 minutes left to play. By hook or by crook, the Lakers won the game by 6 points (98 to 92.) This means that there was a whopping 11 point swing in 1:48 minutes. (Please note that those numbers might be off a little because I was in a state of deep depression followed by irrational exuberance during this 4-minute period.)

      This time, however, I truly feel bad and have sympathy for McHell — Just imagine! From now on McHell no longer has Lin as the scapegoat to kick around to cover his own coaching stupidity and incompetence (and he dares not to even lift a finger at Harden.)

      To me, justice was served!!!

      I smiled all the way to the bed that night!

      BTW: Too bad that I forgot to ask you to purchase an XXXL Harden jersey for me. It would have helped me to save quite some $$$ on toilet papers and protect the environment. 🙂

    • ashley

      Mr. PingPong, you’re not delusional. As always, Lin bounced back in today’s game and I’m glad to be able to watch it, even though they lost big (106–140).
      I did see the subbing pattern of Lin–being pulled out the first in the first Q and called back late in the 2nd Q, as if he were still on the Rox. This gave me the impression that BS regards Lin as a weak link and is reluctant to play him more.

      However, if my memory serves me right, BS played Lin the entire 3 Q with the other starters, but he couldn’t make any difference anyway; the Mavericks was simply much better. They have more experienced, established players who shot well, and most importantly, they played team ball. I was truly impressed by their fast, sharp ball movement, which resembled the Spurs’ winning playoff game against the Heat. I used to enjoy Jeremy’s passing, alley-hoops with his teammates, but this has become a rare case with the Lakers.

      Other reasons why the Lakers got blown away: both Nick Young and Kobe had an off night and the defense of the Lakers big men was bad. Kobe’s shot 6-22; he’s determined to shoot anyway, whether he has a hot hand or not. It’s pathetic. I believe Kobe’s confidence in his shooting worked magic in the old days but unfortunately, not anymore. Just hope he realizes that sooner and make a change for the team.

      • MrPingPong

        Hi Ashley, I am just playing the stats game here! Never bet against Lin! I will win more than 50% of the time when betting on Lin! 🙂

    • Thanks for the field reporting, MrPingPong! Maybe I should remind you that you have the ability to post articles on here. No pressure. Just a reminder. Haha.

      The most shocking about the Rockets game is that Harden actually played team ball. This is most shocking, because with DH out, you’d think Harden would ball hog even more and no one would blame him for doing so. Lakers definitely stole a win vs. Rockets.

  • ashley

    From, I got the info that the SportsNet LA made no mention of Lin at all despite him being the highest scorer of today’s game, getting 18 points on 8-11 shooting.

    I think this is the first time Lin scored more than Kobe this season (18 vs 17). Isn’t it weird that they mentioned everyone but Lin? Also, they kept mentioning Kobe, the awful shooter today. It’s so unfair and makes me so sick and sad that it warrants some ranting here. I hope someone could question them what’s going on–how the hell could they say and show nothing about LIn’s play when briefing today’s game? Just hope Lin can keep up the good work so they can’t keep cheating us!

    • MrPingPong

      As I’ve mentioned here many times before, I am used to seeing Lin being marginalized by NBA pundits in thousands of ways. I’m immune to that now. The beauty of it all is Lin will just keep playing and making his marks in the NBA. This just drives the LOHs crazy! 🙂 Those poor guys, there is so much hate in them! And to paraphrase Marie Antoinette, ‘Let them eat (Kobe) steak!’ 🙂

      • Dr. Gary Teng

        Professor MrPingPong,

        Am I “Waiting for Godot?”

        And to paraphrase Marie Antoinette, ‘Let them eat (Kobe) steak!’

        Wow! In the ancient China, an extremely dopey and incompetent emperor said something very similar. Apparently, stupid minds think alike too.

        • MrPingPong

          • Dr. Gary Teng

            Professor MrPingPong,

            Once again, you got the upper hand… 🙁

            I am so shocked that you cracked my unbreakable enigma code in no time. As you already know, “Todog” means that I am still waiting for you (the top dog) to throw some leftover dog bones (B&W video segment) for me (the under dog) to chew on.

            Upon learning that you only own a B&W smart(ass) phone, I am feeling much better now. (Could it be that may explain why the download speed is so slow?!) 🙂

          • MrPingPong

            Dr. Teng:

            You are giving me much more credit than I actually deserve. Speaking of dogs, there is an old saying in Vietnamese that goes something like, “it’s the case of a dog catching a fly while yawning.” That is all that is happening here for me: just dumb luck! 🙂

            Switching topic slightly, there should be a lot of back breaking deals on non B&W TV and lintelligent phones this coming Black Friday. Are you a sucker on “door buster” deals like me? 🙂

    OK folks, here is the first quarter of the Rockets game (in full color as in “La vie en rose”).

    I missed most of the Lin tribute video played during a time out because I turned my camera off during each time out and was not expecting any such thing at all! You can hear the crowd applauding Lin in the background. Morey was definitely trying to make up for his bad behavior! 🙂

    • MrPingPong

      OK folks, here’s the second quarter action of Lakers vs Rockets. I added a short take of two young Lakers fans sitting right next to me at around the 8:40 min mark.

          Professor MrPingPong,

          “It’s the case of a dog catching a fly while yawning.”

          I know that you intended to comfort me, but the truth is that I can’t even shoot down a mosquito with a 18 gauge shotgun… 🙂

          Since I am (semi) color-blind, I am pretty contend with my B/W antique TV and dumbass phone. Whereas you are trying to give a big boost to the economy by shopping at the Needless Markup (Neiman Marcus) boutique store this coming weekend, I plan just to go to the local flea market to find a non-broken colorless TV for replacement… 🙁

          As usual, Kobe took over the 4th quarter during the Lakers vs. Nuggets game last night and you all know the rest of the story.

          Please allow me to quote from Albert Einstein of the classic definition of Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

          The contrast couldn’t be more clear between Kobe and Jeremy — Insanity vs. Linsanity.

          Do I need to say more?! 🙁

  • Jetty

    Your articles are always a good read.
    Just a shout-out to you, Andy.

    On a lighter note: at least nobody’s going to blame it on Jeremy for the loss. =) And Lin is starting to get more comfortable there. The team will do better as time goes on. They do want to have a winning season, …even for Kobe. He just need to trust his teammates more. I’m fine with Kobe as Lin is. Afterall, This IS all about Lin. No McHale BS! No Rockets BS! Just keep looking on the brighter side.

    • Thanks! I appreciate it. Yeah, i think I’m just about done being pissed off. Haha.
