G74 CHA @ PHI Game Thread

G74 CHA @ PHI Game Thread

With 9 games left in the regular season and the 6th place Hornets being 2 games back from 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference standing, JLin and the Hornets will make a strong push to secure home-court advantage in the playoff. 2 games against the 76ers should help them to close the gap if they can focus Will JLin continue to develop more chemistry and strong defensive/offensive plays on the court?... »

G73 CHA @ MIL Game Thread

After a bad Hornets game where they started slow with lackadaisical defense being out-rebounded 42-62, they could not recover. Despite not having a good shooting night, Jeremy Lin came in and helped with early assists to cut the lead to 8pts in the 2nd quarter but sloppy plays by Lamb and Batum gave another momentum to the Pistons Only Kemba shot well with 9-18 to score 29pts but it was not enough... »

Less Thought Is the Secret of Recent Linsanity Success

After having a horrible shooting slump  (32.5% FG% and 25% 3FG) after the All-Star Break which coincided with reduced playing time due to the arrival of Courtney Lee, Jeremy Lin had posted an impressive shooting numbers in the past 3 game  with  63% FG (25-40) with an unbelievable 87.5% 3FG (7-8) In the 3/22 post-game interview after JLin scored 21pts following his 29pts/7rebs Linsanity performanc... »

G71 CHA @ BKN Game Thread

What a tremendous game! After JLin unleashed his best Linsanity performance (29pts/7rebs/2asts/1stl) to almost single-handedly beat the mighty Spurs, what can we expect on the back end of a back-to-back game at Brooklyn Nets tonight? If Kemba regains his shooting touch after 2 bad games (8-29 shooting, 1-13 3FGM), we can expect a smaller usage for JLin (15min) similar to what happened after the hu... »

After a relaxing family time of watching movies with his cousins, JLin had a good shooting game (6-10) with 2-2 perfect 3pt shooting in the Nuggets game. It seems family time always helped Jeremy to relax and perform better on-court. Jeremy spent time enjoying cooking for his family and friends. Will more family time help him to perform well against the mighty San Antonio Spurs? Will Jeremy even g... »

G69 DEN @ CHA Game Thread

Despite the shooting slump and minimized role, JLin got the call with 14.6 seconds left after Marvin Williams missed 2 FTs to allow the Heat to close within 3 pts. He delivered with 4 clutch FTs silencing any hope in the building that the Heat can steal a win in the last seconds Will this boost his confidence to keep shooting and get over the shooting slump? Jeremy took time to relax and watch Zoo... »

G68 CHA @ MIA Game Thread

Kudos to JLin for his perseverance. Despite not having a lot of  usage & touches (15.6% USG and 8% of team touches per @TTNN), JLin still found ways to contribute to spur a big Hornets run in the 2nd quarter How will JLin contribute in the 2nd game of back-to-back against a tough MIA team? He played 25 min while Kemba and Batum played 38 min so he might be needed as a playmaker. It seems like ... »

After a bad Hornets loss against the Mavericks, will the Hornets get back on the winning track again? How will Jeremy Lin respond after a bad game when he only shot 3 times and made 1/4 FTs? He bounced back strongly in 2 games this season of scoring 2pts by scoring 19pts/1a (1/13 Hawks game in 27 min) and 14pts/4a (2/10 Pacers game in 28 min) But in 2 previous bad games, he shot 0-9 and 1-7 while ... »
