G17 MIL vs CHA Observations & Notes

G17 MIL vs CHA Observations & Notes

Jeremy Lin finished with 7pts/4asts/3rebs/+10 playing 22 min in 87-82 win against Milwaukee Bucks. He played very well facilitating to spark the bench to gain the lead in 2nd quarter as starters trailed again to finish with negative +/- for all games. Batum had very high 9TOs. Lin was benched with 2:08 left possibly because he hasn’t scored in the 4th quarter (0-2 shooting, 2 rebs) despite p... »

After 4 consecutive games with 28+ min (28, 29, 29, 31), JLin had 2 games with 15 min due to foul trouble (4 PFs vs WAS) and TO trouble (2 quick TOs in Q4 vs CLE) Coach Clifford made a costly mistake to go with JLamb to close out games since Hornets lost the 82-79 after benching JLin. The Cavs went on 16-8 run with Hornets shooting 3-17 with the Cavs getting open shots. Cavs guards (Delladova &... »

G16 CLE @CHA Game Thread

After 4 consecutive games with 28+ min (28, 29, 29, 31), JLin got into foul trouble (2nd PF after 5 min in Q2) and only played 15 min. After a hot start, he provided great defense with 2 blocks in Q4 but lost the nice offensive rhythm in the 4th quarter. JLin simply doesn’t have a lot of luxury as a bench player with limited min to not scoring enough or committed too many fouls too early. Wo... »

G15 CHA Observations & Notes

It’s too bad that a hot-shooting JLin (5pts in first 5 min) got to 2nd foul too quickly. He finished with 5pts/2blks/3TOs/4PFs. Otherwise he’d close the 2nd quarter like the previous 3-4 games. Otherwise he’d close the 2nd quarter like the previous 3-4 games. Clifford made a mistake to over-play a tired Kemba in the 3rd quarter allowing the Wizards to take 5pt lead. He should put JLin ... »

After a slow start, JLin contributed big time in the OT Win with his clutch 8pts out of 14 Hornets OT points. Against John Wall and the Wizards, the Hornets could have a great chance to win tonight since the Wizards played a game last night against Pacers so their tired legs might slow them down a bit Would we see Kemba/Lin/Batum/Frank/Zeller lineup that were most effective in the 22-pt comeback w... »

G14 Hairsanity in Overtime Win

G14 Hairsanity in Overtime Win

Jeremy Lin started slow but was his Hairsanity was tremendous in scoring 8 points (7 straight!) out of his 14pts in the 127-122 OT win vs the Kings. His 8 out of 15 Hornets points were simply the definition of clutchness! CBSSports even commemorated this excellent Hairsanity game to tell our future grandkids someday 🙂 Jeremy Lin is having one of those incredible NBA hair nights that you'll tel... »

G14 SAC @CHA Game Thread

With PJ Hairston and Cody Zeller back,: would Jeremy Lin go back to energize the 2nd unit? Or will Coach Clifford continue to experiment how to utilize Jeremy Lin to help starters build a lead.. but at the same time conserve his energy to power the 2nd unit that seemed unable to sustain great ball movement without his playmaking? With 3 consecutive games of averaging 28min/game, Coach Clifford see... »

G13 PHI @CHA Observation & Notes

G13 PHI @CHA Observation & Notes

In Jeremy Lin’s surprising 1st start of the season, Jeremy finished with 9pts/2asts/3rebs in 29 min. It was a mixed performance since Jeremy energized the starters in the 1st half as an SG but did not have as many chances to be the playmaker as he shared the ball with Batum and Kemba to initiate offense.  It’s understandable as they continue to learn to play together to develop chemist... »

Jeremy Lin has earned more trust from Coach Clifford with 28 min and 29 min in the past 2 games. The Nets game has brought out a developing chemistry between Batum and JLin to spark a 11-4 run in the 4th quarter to give the Hornets the lead that they never relinquished. Will we see more Batum to play with JLin in Q3-Q4? Will we also see JLin close the 2nd quarter to give him consistent minutes of ... »
