Both Utah Jazz and Charlotte Hornets have 18-22 record but the Hornets have lost 9 out of 10 games while the Jazz split 6-6 in the last 12 games. The Hornets desperately need to win but will their defense hold? Jeremy Lamb is still out for the game so they will lack some firepower for the Bench Force 1. JLin had a glimpse of Linsanity leading 7-0 run in the 4th quarter as the PG. Will he have anot... »

Defenseless Hornets Lost Again; Glimpses of Linsanity

Defenseless Hornets Lost Again; Glimpses of Linsanity

The Hornets defense was exposed again as they lost to 92-105 to Milwaukee Bucks. Defense was a problem again since no one is stopping the Bucks from attacking the rim. Fatigue might be a factor as they played a back-to-back game. Glimpses of Linsanity was seen in the beginning of 4th quarter as he played as the PG to lead 7-0 run with scoring 4pts on 2 drives plus a drive & kickout to Kemba on... »

On the 2nd game of back-to-back game, Lin is listed as questionable with right ankle sprain that reinjured during the Pelicans game. Even Kemba and Nic Batum are listed as probable. If JLin is not 100%, he should really rest but we know he’s very competitive so he might play tonight. INJURY REPORT: @hornets Lamb DOUBTFUL (R toe) Lin QUESTIONABLE (R ankle sprain) Walker (L ankle s... »

It’s great to see JLin looking healthy in his 19pts/5reb bounce-back performance. He seemed to be in groove scoring 9pts out of his 19pts in the 4th quarter that earned the praise from ATL announcers, including Dominique Wilkins who was not known as a fan of JLin’s game before. But after discussing an anecdote how JLin wanted to meet Wilkins in the heights of Linsanity in 2012, it migh... »

G38 ATL @CHA Game Thread: Bounce-Back Game?

G38 ATL @CHA Game Thread: Bounce-Back Game?

After 2 days of rest, Jeremy Lin said his ankle is okay and hopefully he can move faster on-court tonight. Will JLin have a bounce-back game tonight after having a bad game (2pts, 0-9 shooting) due to back-to-back and ankle issues? How did JLin bounce back after 5 such games with 0-X shooting in the Lakers last season? It turns out he averaged 15.4pts/4.4asts/2.6rebs in the bounce-back games. With... »

Jeremy Lin is listed as questionable again after he reinjured the ankle although he was able to finish the game strong. It might be wise to sit out the game if the ankle is not cooperating on a back-to-back game. If he does play, let’s hope and pray that he can be healthy and play well to continue his hot-shooting from the Clippers game. Jeremy Lin is questionable for tonight's game vs. ... »

For the first time in a few games, Jeremy Lin is not listed as probable due to his ankle injury. The 13pts in 1 quarter during the Suns game gave hope of his improved mobility. This is another tough game against the Clippers who owns the current longest winning streak at 7, tied with the Spurs. Let’s go, JLin! http://www.nbaliveonline.tv/streaming http://www.nba.com/leaguepass/ http://www.firstrow... »
