Lin & Clarkson Combine for 39 in Lakers Victory

Jeremy Lin

The second act of the first all Asian American starting backcourt in the NBA went even better than the first act.
 
The Lakers behind 20 points by Jordan Clarkson and 19 from Jeremy Lin beat the Minnesota Timberwolves in overtime last night 101 – 99.
 
The funny thing is that the Lakers acted as if they didn’t want to win.
 
Despite scoring 19 points and adding five assists and a steal through three quarters, Lin didn’t play the entire fourth quarter or in overtime. It’s widely believed the Lakers’ coaches are doing their best to lose. If they fall out of the bottom 5 in the NBA standings, they would lose their number 1 draft pick because of a deal they made with the Phoenix Suns.
 
On Tuesday night, the first time two Asian Americans have started in an NBA backcourt together, Clarkson hit a career high of 30 and Lin struck for 19 in a defeat against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
 
Check out the tweets and highlights from Wednesday night’s game below.
