Jeremy Lin Can't Find the Words to Explain Lakers' Terrible Play

If Jeremy Lin can't summon the words, there's not much to say.

There's no explaining the Los Angeles Lakers' game plan, which boils down to spray 'n' pray with Kobe Bryant and aggressive ball-watching on defense.

Lin looked on as Bryant chucked up 34 shots in a 136-115 blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors at the Staples Center. The Lakers guard tried to parse out the loss to reporters after the game, but even he didn't possess the poetry of language to properly explain the drubbing.

Lakers beat writer Shahan Ahmed (h/t BroBible's Kyle Koster) uploaded a Vine of Lin's attempt at encapsulating Los Angeles' impressive awfulness. He just couldn't do it.

"I don't…it's…you know," Lin said. "Uh…I don't know, man."

Lin may still be there right now, double-clutching pronouns in an empty locker room.

He can't say, "We're terrible at defense, Kobe doesn't trust us, and our offensive strategy is inefficiency personified."

Lin can't say that. It's not in him.

Bryant, of course, had plenty to say about the Warriors jamming 74 points down his team's throat in the first half.

"They came out and knocked down shots and put us in a hole pretty quick," Bryant said, per The Associated Press (h/t ESPN). "... I'd rather get guys involved early. That's always the intent. But when you go down 10-12 points in the hole, man, I've got to try to keep us in the ballgame at some point.”

Bryant finished the game with 44 points. Lin finished with zero points, two rebounds and another affirmation that this year is going to be the longest year of his career.
