G12 BKN @CHA Observation & Notes

Something special happened in Game 12 of Hornets vs Nets. It was the growing chemistry between Nic Batum and Jeremy Lin. Jeremy Lin played a crucial part in the 4th quarter to turn a 86-86- tie game into a 9pt lead (97-90) with 11-4 run as Lin and Batum contributed 6pts and 5pts. And they fed off each other. – NY Post recognized JLin’s contribution with the big bold headline of ”Nets undone ... »

Jeremy Lin had a great 1st half with 11 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast in 14 min but the Hornets lost 104-92 to the Knicks. Coach Clifford stuck with the imbalanced offense of the starters in the 3rd quarter as Kemba did too many ISOs although he finished with 31pts but only last on 12-21 shooting and Batum was struggling to finish with 4pts on 1-9 shooting. Lin and Lamb were shooting well but didn’t have a ch... »

Linsanity is back in NY where it all started! JLin came off the bench for the Knicks vs the NJ NETS to give a spark. This time JLin will come off the bench as a Hor-NETS to give another spark. Will history repeat itself? Will JLin find the comfort of playing all out like he did in the MSG? Last game, JLin started well to score aggressively with 5 quick points last game & pushed the run in the... »

How will Jeremy Lin bounce back after a bad game in Chicago? Would he find ways to score even if Zeller is out? It has become clear that whoever can score will earn playing time Let’s hope JLin continues to regain his shooting touch (esp. 3pt shooting) back, perform shutdown defense and be the most lethal scorer by repeatedly going to the FT line. Let’s go, JLin! Be your aggressive self! htt... »

After 2 games of hair-raising Hairsanity performance, Jeremy Lin didn’t do very well in this game to finish with 4pts/1a/1r/2stls in 17 min with 2-7 shooting. Only Nic Batum did well with 28pts amidst the horrible news of Paris terrorist attack. JLin: “(For end game situation), guys are comfortable playing with each other … We’re gonna stay ready … when(not if) our number i... »

After 2 hair-raising Hairsanity games, JLin looked determined to power up the bench with aggressive scoring, suffocating defense praised by Coach Clifford and clutch shots in the 4th quarter reminiscent of Linsanity run in 2012. Will the starters stumble out of the gate again? Or will Kemba/Al find the shooting touch? Jimmy Butler and the Bulls are mad for losing in a blowout loss and are ready to... »
