G70 Detroit Pistons vs Brooklyn Nets: Lin Listed as Day-to-Day

G70 Detroit Pistons vs Brooklyn Nets: Lin Listed as Day-to-Day

The Nets listed Jeremy Lin’s status as day-to-day after he suffered sprained ankle in the loss against the Dallas Mavericks. They are being cautious with the injury and might use a few games to evaluate Spencer Dinwiddie/Archie Goodwin as PGs while waiting for Lin to recover. Archie Goodwin’s 10-day contract still has 5 more days left so he might get some playing minutes in the next three games against Detroit Pistons, Phoenix Suns, and Washington Wizards. The good news is reportedly training on March 21 to shoot although with little elevation as reported by Bryan Forseca. “Jeremy Lin is training with Kenny Atkinson at the far end. Taking jumpers with little to no elevation... »

G69 Nets Seek a Rematch against Mavericks at Home

G69 Nets Seek a Rematch against Mavericks at Home

  The Nets lost a tough-game 95-98 to Boston Celtics who missed Isaiah Thomas for injuries. The Nets had a chance to win the second game of back-to-back game but they had to fight an uphill battle when Lin checked in late with only 2:41 left in the 4th quarter with the Nets trailing 6 points, 85-91. Coach Kenny Atkinson tried to put Lin in at 6min mark in the 4th quarter when the Nets was trailing 77-80 but Lin had to wait 3 long minutes because there was no dead ball situation and Kenny did not want to burn a timeout too early. In hindsight, perhaps he should have called a timeout or inserted Lin with LeVert at 6:42 mark but he showed good intention to rely on Lin nonetheless. He might... »

G67 Jeremy Lin and the Nets Attempt to Tie Season Series with NY Knicks at the MSG

Jeremy Lin at the Madison Square Garden always brings a special feeling of nostalgic Linsanity. Never mind that Lin tried to downplay the upcoming game as just another game after Linsanity happened 5 years ago; Linsanity will always bring special moments of excitement in the Knicks history. Jeremy Lin’s team has a convincing 8-3 record against the Knicks (when he played) since he left the team 5 years ago; it is even more impressive considering 2 losses happened during the Lakers 2014-15 tanking season under the Tank Commander Byron Scott.

G66 Jeremy Lin and the Nets Need to Prevent Westbrook Triple-Double to Beat OKC Thunder

The Nets managed to snap 16-home game losing streak against the Knicks with 120-112 win. The Nets hit an impressive 19 three-pointers (19-38) as a team. After a slow 0-9 shooting start in the first three quarters, Jeremy Lin showcased a mini-Linsanity run in the fourth quarter to score 9pts/1ast/1reb along with great ball movement by the Nets to neutralize the Knicks run. After the game, Lin shared the fatigue after coming back from the 8-game road trip impacting his body in the first three quarters. Nets vs Thunder Matchup Russell Westbrook’s triple-double stats is astounding. He has 32 triple-doubles and is only 9 away from Oscar Robertson’s single-season record from 1961-62 se... »

G65 Brooklyn Nets Seeks to Snap 16-game Home Losing Streak vs NY Knicks

G65 Brooklyn Nets Seeks to Snap 16-game Home Losing Streak vs NY Knicks

After three competitive games, the Nets experienced a letdown in a game without Brook Lopez, who rested his sprained ankle, and lost a game against Dallas Mavericks 96-105 in a disappointing fashion. They were outscored 13-1 at one point in the fourth quarter unable to execute their offense down the stretch. Coach Carlisle’s adjustment to throw some zone defense after half-time might have something to do with the Nets struggle and the inability to find reliable big man in the middle to score really hurt the Nets. Jeremy Lin tried his best to provide some scoring to draw fouls and hit 4-5 free throws, 1 assist to Quincy Acy dunk but he can only do so much with his teammates struggled to... »

Although the Nets lost the game to the Hawks 105-110, Jeremy Lin has brought leadership and his sharp-shooting (51.7% from 3 in the past 7 games) to make his Nets teammates believe they can win any games they previously had no business of winning. His 9 straight points in the fourth quarter helped the Nets to break down one of the best defense in Memphis Grizzlies and his valiant attempt in the 4th quarter to rally his teammates against the Hawks gave the Nets a chance to win a game. Lin’s leadership has made the Nets exciting to watch in competing hard against two opponents that are playoff-caliber teams being ranked 5th in the Western and Eastern conference.

Hopefully, we can continue to build on this.” — NetsDaily.com (@NetsDaily) March 8, 2017 Improved 3-Point Defense in the 4th Quarter vs the Grizzlies After allowing... »

G62 Brooklyn Nets Need to Think Defense First vs Memphis Grizzlies

G62 Brooklyn Nets Need to Think Defense First vs Memphis Grizzlies

Jeremy Lin slowly increased his playing time above 20 minutes in his 5th game back from injury and was very productive to contribute 18points/3rebounds/2assists/1steal/1block in merely 22 minutes to make a late fourth quarter push against the Blazers. Unfortunately, it was not enough as the Nets defense could not stop the Blazers from scoring and lost 116-130. Non-Existent 3-Point Defense Throughout the season, the Nets 3-Point defense has been in the bottom rank of the NBA. Currently, it is ranked 26th out of 30 NBA teams with allowing 37.4% but in the last 3 games, it has hit a new low by allowing a horrendous 53.4% to Utah, Sacramento, and Portland. All three opponents are ranked in the T... »
