Lakers’ Jeremy Lin is on post-All-Star break roll, gives thanks to ‘God’

first_img“I still plan on starting him sometime before the season’s over,” said Scott, whose team Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. will play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder (35-27). “I don’t know if it’s going to be next week or the week after. But I like the way he’s playing right now.“I like the three-guard rotation we have with him and Wayne (Ellington) and JC (Jordan Clarkson). They all seem to be playing very effectively at certain points and times in games.”Lin on Saturday after practice spoke in spiritual tones when assessing his recent success.“Just trying to surrender my basketball and the results to God even more and … the more I can do that, the more I can have a clear mind, a free mind, just go out there and have fun, stay aggressive and not worry too much about the results as much as I may want to at times,” he said.Lin said that getting more minutes lately has been beneficial. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I’ve always been kind of a guy who scores in waves, scores in streaks and sometimes being out there a little longer helps you get your rhythm,” he said.Lin, of course, would welcome that start Scott is talking about. His hallway neighbors, the Clippers, have two players who prefer coming off the bench — Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes. Crawford gets his wish, Barnes doesn’t.Judging by Lin’s response to such an inquiry, he’s not like those two.“You’re asking me if I want to start?” Lin said. “Any athlete wants to start. Me included, yes.”Coach’s smiling faceScott was reminded that he was wearing a big smile following Friday’s 101-93 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at Staples Center. And why not? For a team that is 16-41, winning three games in succession is a big deal.“The last three games have been great, especially in the fourth quarter,” Scott said, “and just happy with the progress that our guys are making when the process is going well. There is no reason not to smile.”Scott said that he’s starting to see some of what he wants.“I’m seeing a lot of it, the competitive nature of our guys, the way we come out and compete, how hard they’ve been playing,” Scott said.Scott said he’s also pleased with the way his players have adapted to recent defensive changes that include keeping teams off-balance by going from full-court press to zone to man-to-man.AlsoPoint guard Russell Westbrook leads the Thunder with a 26.5 scoring average and has been on a tear, but he’s expected to be out for Sunday’s game after having surgery on his cheekbone on Saturday. Westbrook was accidentally kneed in the face by teammate Andre Roberson on Friday at Portland. OKC, eighth in the Western Conference standings, will be without reigning MVP Kevin Durant (foot) as well. … Scott said forward Nick Young’s left knee is still experiencing swelling and soreness and he will be out against the Thunder. He has missed the past two games. … Reserve power forward Tarik Black has played just four minutes in the past three games, not at all the past two. Scott said he likes his rotation right now, but that he expects to get Black back in there with “10, 15, 20 games left in the season.”center_img It’s been an up-and-down season for Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin.The biggest downer came when coach Byron Scott took him out of the starting lineup in early December. Right now he is experiencing one of his better highs as he’s averaging 16.2 points and 4.2 assists while shooting 47.8 percent from the field in 26.7 minutes off the bench in four games since the All-Star break.Lin also has had just two turnovers in those four games, of which the Lakers have won the past three — matching their longest winning streak of the season.Scott likes what he’s seeing, and Lin may well get a start soon.last_img read more

Mike Tyson’s AEW ‘Dynamite’ debut with Chris Jericho made for cringeworthy television

first_imgMike Tyson’s next opponent? His T-shirt.On Wednesday’s “Dynamite,” Tyson made his AEW TV debut just days after helping introduce the TNT championship to the fold, and it didn’t exactly go as he’d hoped. After Tyson arrived alongside some other stars of the combat sports world (Henry Cejudo and and Rashad Evans, to name a few), he kicked off a feud with Chris Jericho — and his AEW shirt. Some on Twitter felt the same way:AEW Fans on the Jericho Mike Tyson feud pic.twitter.com/9FnEYlG1cW— Wrestlelamia (@wrestlelamia) May 28, 2020I love #AEW, especially since I dropped watching the other company all together. But the Mike Tyson story line is complete trash. It makes zero sense and it won’t bring any new eyes to the product.Concerned AEW is going into hokey story lines way too much right now.— Christopher John (@PsychoNetsFan) May 28, 2020I love this company and watching Dynamite is my favorite part of the week. But if I’m being honest I have zero interest in seeing Mike Tyson in AEW. I want to see the Inner Circle fued against actual AEW wrestlers. Never been a fan of non wrestlers fueding on wrestling shows.— Patrick Feltner (@dalekgimpy) May 28, 2020I don’t know what’s more cringe. Henry cejudo or old ass Mike Tyson that can’t Rip a shirt off… like yikes. I think they just need to stop wrasslin’ altogether. It’s jumped the shark as a form of actual entertainment. It is worst than a hallmark movie. pic.twitter.com/yFcYw59eVm— MansaMusaMoney (@mansamusa_money) May 28, 2020Open Critique: As much as I love AEW. Mike Tyson’s involvement with the company should have ended with double or nothing. This seems like a giant Rehash of Wrestlemania 14. – I understand why they’re doing it. but this feels cheap to me.Other than that. Fantastic Dynamite.— Paul Nova. (@onefallpaul) May 28, 2020I will be really disappointed if @AEWrestling books a match with Jericho and mike Tyson. I get that he’s a draw and I have a lot of respect for the dude but he’s not a wrestler. Let wrestlers wrestle, they’re better at it.— OccasionallyAMusical (@Shtmusical) May 28, 2020I hope @AEWrestling don’t make the same mistake #WCW and #TNA did by having retired wrestlers and sportsmen take up TV time. We want to see wrestlers at their prime and the future stars too. Not old or famous guys that shouldn’t be on screen. #AEWDynamite #AEWonTNT— Wrestling-X (@WrestlingX1) May 28, 2020Really, there’s no such thing as bad publicity, so this is all good for Tony Khan and AEW. But let’s hope the next time Tyson is on screen, it yields less cringey results.Hey, at least it was a quality T-shirt. It’s never a good idea to threaten Mike Tyson 😯 pic.twitter.com/oXwrxxQdfx— TSN (@TSN_Sports) May 28, 2020Mike Tyson: “Hey, I’m telling you, this is not over. I’m coming back and Jericho’s getting his ass kicked!”🤑🤑🤑pic.twitter.com/iaNhbroA9f— Chamatkar Sandhu (@SandhuMMA) May 28, 2020Tyson, of course, is no stranger to a wrestling ring, with his infamous WWF face-off with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin in the late ’90s sweeping the nation and stealing headlines. Recently, he’s undergone something of a career resurgence, with rumors of a return to the boxing ring running rampant and videos of Tyson shadow boxing hitting the internet over recent months.MORE: Relive AEW’s ridiculously fun Stadium Stampede matchThe Jericho-Tyson feud has its history, though, with the two of them facing off on an episode of WWE “RAW” in January 2010. Tyson “knocked out” Jericho on the show, leading to Jericho’s challenge of Tyson on Wednesday night’s show.Usually in pro wrestling (or sports entertainment, if that’s your thing), celebrity or other sport guests tend to make for cringeworthy television, and this was no exception. While AEW has done more good than bad and they deserve a little bit of faith moving forward with this Jericho-Tyson feud, the stunt got off to a bumpy start.last_img read more
