A similar question had to be asked last night about Jeremy Lin who scored 25 points in a rare victory for the Los Angeles Lakers–this one over the Boston Celtics 118 -111.
Lin’s playing time has been limited as the Lakers have chose to go for the youth movement. Many have accused coach Byron Scott of pulling out key players at the most inopportune time in a bid to lose and gain a higher draft pick.
Last night’s Lin played 30 minutes, more than any other Laker point guard.
So what came first, playing time or more points for Jeremy Lin who scored almost 1 1/2 times above his season average?
After the game, the Lakers were so excited, three of the players photo bombed him during a post game interview. Check out the video below.
