G7 CHA @MIN Game Thread

JLin tried the right approach to aggressively score in the Spurs game and his shooting has improved at 40%FG. His FT would need to get better from 3/6 But his man and team-defense had to be better so not to leave his man too much space on 3pt line like Patty Mills did. Will JLin have the same mentality to continue attacking and shooting? Will his shooting finally get better? Will Lamb and Batum ge... »

Hornets was steam-rolled by the mighty Spurs in a 94-114 loss. They were competitive until the Spurs made a 22-5 run to close the 3rd quarter, turning a tie game 71-71 to 76-93. Manu Ginobili made triple 3s in this run. Jeremy Lin still hasn’t regained his shooting touch but did the right thing to attack the rim. He finished with 12pts/2a/3r/2tos/2pfs. Unfortunately, he only made 3-6 FTs after hit... »

After 2 blowouts in which Jeremy Lin only played 19 min and 17 min, how many minutes do we expect him to play against the mighty Spurs? Hornets have been practicing their passing so it’s a good indication that the playmakers (Kemba/Lin/Batum) would be needed down the stretch in 4th quarter to have any chance against the disciplined Spurs. Let’s keep hoping JLin find comfort in his game as in prese... »

The Hornets won in a blow out 108-94 but there’s some controversy with Jlin fans on why he only played 17 min. He finished with 7p/2a/1r/2s/1b/4TO Paul Villareal offered his observation that Devin Harris tried to rattle JLin a bit; that could’ve influenced less min. @JLinPortal @chankpc DAL tried to "get after" JLin a bit and it may have thrown him off a bit, or Cliff may hav... »

After an impressive win against Chicago Bulls with the help of 37 suggestions from ex-coach Thibs, will the Hornets continue its hot shooting against the Mavs? Will Coach Carlisle trap JLin and force him to give up the ball to prevent him to run the 2nd unit offense? Will Lin/Lamb/Hawes/Zeller continue to be effective? Kemba also blogged about his desire to set the tone strongly for the 1st unit t... »

Jeremy Lin Analysis – Hornets vs the Bulls 11/3/15

Late afternoon yesterday (11/2), a huge and generous JLin fan asked if there is any JLinportal member who lives in Charlotte that can attend the game and watch the interaction between JLin and his coaches plus teammates This huge fan was so concerned that JLin might not be treated well that a ticket can be donated if there is someone who can help with onsite reporting. Immediately, I thought of ou... »

With 0-3 start against strong playoff teams, criticism started to come to Coach Clifford but they have been competitive. Can they win against a tough 3-1 Bulls team? They lost against DET on a road game that Hornets beat during preseason but this is a regular season. Will JLin regain his shooting touch? It’s good that Coach Clifford still trusted his playmaking in the 4th quarter but it will... »

Hope and Trust: A Cycle of All-Star, Primadonna, Lamb and Jeremy Lin

Hope and Trust: A Cycle of All-Star, Primadonna, Lamb and Jeremy Lin

Years have passed since Linsanity happened. Jeremy grew up and improved a lot as a player: – his defence is better, – his 3 point percentage is higher, – his turnover rate has been going down year after year, – he learned to play off ball and catch-and-shoot. What we have now is a mature player, a very skilled one, capable of any sort of things. One thing Jeremy still doesn... »

The Hornets shot poorly in the 4th quarter and lost a winnable game vs Atlanta Hawks 92-94 Paul Villareal pointed out correctly that it’s hard to overcome 1-18 shooting with 3 min left in the 4th quarter Why did #Hornets lose today to #Hawks? - With 3:00 or so left in 4th Qrtr, CLT was 1-18 FGA in 4th quarter. Hard to overcome. #NBA — Paul Villarreal (@CNM_JLin_Vids) November 1... »
