Jeremy Lin started well but slowed down with his shooting but still contributed 12 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals in 29 min (4-14 shooting, 2-4 from three-point land). It is encouraging see younger teammates can step up to close the game when Brook Lopez (13pts/4reb/1ast) and Jeremy Lin slowed down towards the end. It is a testament to the Nets team growth to develop younger players. It will only help to ma... »
