Jeremy Lin had a strong performance on Friday as the Lakers nearly upset the Grizzlies, with the point guard scoring 20 off of the bench. But he still found a way to upset Kobe Bryant. Memphis had the ball up one with the clock running down. L.A. needed to take a foul to stretch the game out from the free throw line.
Apparently, Lin did not get that memo.
The struggle is real.
A couple seconds later, Kobe missed a potential game-tying shot, and the Lakers lost 109-106.
After the game, Byron Scott confirmed that he didn't want Lin to foul until around the 10 second mark:
Lin had a good laugh about it.
