“From an X’s and O’s standpoint, I think we played really hard tonight. Everybody gave everything they had. We had big contributions all around the board. If you talk about which stretch was the best stretch, it was the stretch where we were doing it right on the defensive end, and the defense is what is going to carry us.” – Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin and the Los Angeles Lakers cruised passed the Charlotte Hornets Sunday night winning their first game of the 2014-2015 season.

Lin was a key factor in the Lakers win scoring a controlled 21 points and dishing out seven assists. Lin continues to put up solid numbers at home with 18 points against Phoenix and 17 against the Clippers. “It’s a matter of keeping the aggression high,” said Lin. “I was going to come out guns blazing.”
