Motivated Jeremy Lin Puts Up Double-Double Performance in Lakers’ Victory Against Hawks

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin responded well after his worst performance in purple and gold uniform. The Asian-American star recorded his first double-double (15 points and 10 dimes) to help the Lakers beat the Atlanta Hawks 114-109 for their second win of the season on Tuesday at Philips Arena.

Lin, who went scoreless in 22 minutes in Sunday's 136-115 blowout loss at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, shot 6-for-7 from the field and 2-for-3 from the free-throw line.

Unlike his sloppy game against the Warriors, the 26-year old playmaker looked under control in 31 minutes of play, as he made it look easy for his teammates to score.

Lin, who could not give the exact adjective to describe the Lakers after Sunday's loss, felt some sort of relief after seeing their four-game losing skid finally came to an end.    

"Man, oh man, that's a lot better," Lin said when asked how important Tuesday's victory, according to the Associated Press. "It's been a rough start to the season."

Lin's excellent game might come as an answer to Byron Scott's call after the Lakers head coach voiced out his frustration about his team's play. Scott even hinted that he's close to making a lineup change if they kept on losing games.

Kobe Bryant also had a milestone in the win, as his 28-point output was enough to put him in the same circle with Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the 32,000 career points list.

"It's been tough," Bryant said in the post-game interview. "But you find beauty in the process."

Nick Young also played a big role in his first game off a thumb injury, scoring 17 points to give the Lakers bench the offensive firepower they were looking for.

Paul Millsap finished with a game-high 29 points along with 4 rebounds and 4 steals to lead the Hawks, who slide to 5-5. The Lakers, on the other hand, improved to 2-9 but are scheduled to face heavy opposition on Wednesday against the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center.
