Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis are thriving in the pick-and-roll

Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis have been a great combo for the Lakers. Here's what they had to say about it, along with some video analysis of their pick-and-roll chemistry. ONTARIO - Jeremy Lin stands as the Los Angeles Lakers' best chance at finding consistent, dynamic point guard play this season. After back-to-back years marred by injuries to their stable of point guards, the Lakers get another crack at adressing the issue with Lin in a contract year. Ankle injuries have hampered his progress in Los Angeles, but he's looked good in his first two games back. Much of that has to do with the...

Davis-Lin pick and roll effective already

ONTARIO, Calif. -- The play starts the same way every time: Jeremy Lin dribbling atop the 3-point arc, patiently waiting for a screen from Ed Davis. As Lin's yo-yoing lulls his defender, Davis flashes up and sets a pick. More often than not, Davis will go left, toward Lin's right side, which allows Lin to gain traction and comfortably attack with his dominant hand. Depending on how the defense reacts, Davis and Lin will usually do one of two things.

TDS Mailbag: The Return of Red Nation Radio

Yes, it's back. Now what shall we talk about? With the blight that was Voldemort blasting us all in the ass with his Avada Kedavra over the outstretched arm of that Chach Douche who will remain nameless out of our memories, we can finally turn the page and talk about a new season of Houston Rockets basketball. This is both good and bad because it means a new season of Jeremy Lin-free basketball as well as the return of Red Nation Radio. And unlike Jeremy, Daryl Morey can't trade away the likes of BD, The Doctor and myself for future draft considerations. At least I don't think so. Things...

Jeremy Lin could be starting PG, but Scott says team still figuring it out

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Entering what is probably his final NBA season, two-time MVP Steve Nash faces the very real prospect of spending it in a new role: as a backup. Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott said Jeremy Lin could become the team's starting point guard because of Nash's nagging health issues. "That is something I'm definitely thinking about it," Scott said after the team's practice Tuesday. "Is it in our best interest to start Jeremy or Ronnie [Price] or do we wait day by day, game by game?

When he gets healthy, Lin could potentially move into a starting role for the Lakers. The Lakers concluded another day of training camp today, with most of the news coming out of the session once again concerning (what else?) injured players. No Nash today at practice. No update yet on his status. Kobe took part in practice. Lin doing some light shooting. — Mike Bresnahan (@Mike_Bresnahan) October 14, 2014 Neither Lin (ankle) or Nash (hamstring/nerves/back) practiced today. Clarkson (calf), Henry (back) and Kelly (hamstring) were limited. — Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter)...

Jeremy Lin knows whatever his role, it will be an important one

LOS ANGELES -- Jeremy Lin is technically not the Los Angeles Lakers' starting point guard. When the Lakers printed out their starting lineup before Thursday's preseason game against the Golden State Warriors, Lin was listed as a backup to Steve Nash. The truth is Lin figures to start more games this season than Nash, who will turn 41 in February and played in only 15 games last season. Lin also figures to play more minutes than Nash even in games that he doesn't start.
