Asian boys invade in NBA. That sums up when Lakers coach Byron Scott decided to start Jeremy Lin and Jordan Clarkson on the backcourt against Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night. Lin (Taiwanese descent) and rookie Clarkson (Filipino-American) combined for 49 points, but their effort fell short to the Thunder.
Jeremy Lin posted on Instagram with this caption: “Proud to make history tonight with @jclark5on…first ever starting Asian-American backcourt in the NBA!! Proud of rook for that 30-piece too! #asianinvasion #halfasiancounts”
