Scorching Suns Burned the Hornets 111-102, My Epiphany on JLin

Scorching Suns Burned the Hornets 111-102, My Epiphany on JLin

I was afraid this scenario would happen. After losing 9 straight games and embarrassingly only scored 22 pts in the 1st half of the last loss against the Lakers, the Suns came out hot shooting (unbelievably hot 57.6% 3pt shooting, 19-33) determined to win. I was watching the game in person behind the basketball rim so I couldn’t see all floor enough to make good analysis of plays but I was a... »

With Batum officially out, JLin is expected to start again. JLin status is PROBABLE & Lamb status is QUESTIONABLE Will JLin’s injured ankle cause him to slip a few times like in the GSW game again? Will it get better and allow JLin to drive and make cuts? The Suns has 9-game losing streak while the Hornets has 4-game losing streak. This will be a great Win to get the Hornets back on winn... »

G34 CHA @GSW Notes & Observations

Jeremy Lin finished with 13pts/1asts/3rebs (5-12 FGM, 1-5 3FGM, 2-2 FTM) in the Hornets 111-101 loss against the Warriors. JLin didn’t play well due to injured ankle, fell down 4-5 times in his drives or trying to cut. He tried his best to contain and blanket Klay Thompson but Klay still played well to score 30pts. Hornets big men were outmatched (1 blk vs GSW 9 blocks) while the transition ... »

Despite not having 100% healthy ankle, JLin started in place of injured Batum and finished admirably with 15Pts?4Ast?1Reb?1Stl?1Blk in 34 min. But the Hornets lost 90-109 against a tough, physical OKC team with a lot of shot-blockers (15 blocks for OKC vs 7 for CHA) Will JLin play against GSW to begin the 4 game road-trip to the West? (GSW, Suns, Clippers, Nuggets). Curry also might not play so th... »

Will JLin play? He was still seen limping in the TOR game so let’s hope he rests his ankle until he is 100%. He simply can’t afford to have lingering injury this season. Besides he won’t be able to help the Hornets much if he can’t run well. In 2 games absence, Jeremy Lin’s missing impact on defense is truly felt. The Hornets gave up the season record 122 points in a ... »

Will JLin play? He is listed probable but since he was seen limping 2 days ago, let’s hope he rests his ankle until he is 100%. He simply can’t afford to have lingering injury this season. Edit: It’s good to finally get the update that he will be out for this game Jeremy Lin will miss tonight's @hornets game in Toronto. No decision yet on Nic Batum or Spencer Hawes. — R... »
