AsAm News/CBS Sports:

CBS Sports is reporting that Jeremy Lin could join Filipino American Jordan Clarkson in the starting line up. This would be an NBA first–the first line up featuring an all-Asian American starting backcourt.

Speaking of Lin, coach Byron Scott was quoted in Lakers Nation as saying “He’s really started to get into a groove, ”

Lin scored seven of his 14 points in the 4th quarter of the Lakers 101 – 93 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. He also added four of his six assists in the fourth quarter, according to Sportige. Earlier this week, Lin dropped 25 in a victory against the Utah Jazz. The Lakers have won three straight.

Clarkson has also been playing well. He scored 16 in last night’s win over the Bucks. Since joining the starting line up, he has averaged 14 points a game.

CBS says Clarkson would play the point and Lin the shooting guard. Lakers Nation also reported that Scott planned to put Lin back in the starting line up, but was uncertain if he would play the point or shooting guard.

The line up change could happen sometime in the next week.
