Game 15: Atlanta Hawks vs Denver Nuggets: Efficient Lin Continues to Shine in Limited Time

Game 15: Atlanta Hawks vs Denver Nuggets: Efficient Lin Continues to Shine in Limited Time

Jeremy Lin continued to capitalize his performance in the limited time that he was assigned and thrived especially in the 4th quarter against the Golden State Warriors. He showcased great defense in guarding a taller Kevin Durant multiple times forcing misses, giving up the ball, and even an entertaining offensive charge causing both players to smile. Durant did extend the arm and Lin did a great job to accentuate the impact by falling down, earning praise from the announcers. Jeremy Lin not even acting like it wasn't a flop 😂 pic.twitter.com/vr19ww2f0i — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) November 14, 2018 That offensive foul on KD was brewing. He really lowered his shoulder into L... »

Game 11 New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks: A Surging Lin to Make an Impact in Limited Time

Game 11 New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks: A Surging Lin to Make an Impact in Limited Time

After a scintillating performance (19 points, 2 assists, 2 steals, 1 rebound) against his former team Charlotte Hornets albeit with limited 18 minutes, Jeremy Lin shared with The Charlotte Observer that his rhythm continues to come and will focus on the mental aspect, no longer worried on his body. The Atlanta Hawks Tanking Process Impacts Lin’s Playing Time The Hornets game also showed the Hawks might start embracing the #tanking process for the sake of development of young players and increasing the chance to get higher draft pick by losing a lot of games. It would explained why Coach Lloyd Pierce play Bembry (5pts/6rebs/2asts) for 29 minutes to close with the starters but not Lin (1... »

Game 10: Atlanta Hawks vs Charlotte Hornets

Jeremy Lin is coming back to visit the team that he once helped to go to the playoff during his one-year stint but has not come back to the playoff yet. There is no doubt there will be ex-teammates and Hornets fans who will give him a warm welcome. Jeremy Lin said he's excited about the homecoming aspect of tomorrow's game. Amazingly, it's his first game in Charlotte since he played for the Hornets in the 2015-16 season. — Kevin Chouinard (@KLChouinard) November 5, 2018 In his Heat vs Hawks post-game Q&A with fans, Jeremy provided his health assessment in the scale of 1-10 to be an 8 so it is encouraging to hear him feel he is on the upward trend from coming back from t... »

Game 9: Miami Heat vs Atlanta Hawks

For the second straight game, Jeremy Lin finished with a season high 23 points in only 23 minutes. His improving health allowed him to drive effectively to the rim to draw foul but with minimum contact as much as possible. This is an encouraging development since noone knew how long or if Jeremy would be able to get back to his athleticism prior to the injury. The Hawks managed to blow the third quarters again to lose the game to the Sacramento Kings. Afterwards, Coach Pierce shared with the media about Lin’s inspiring words to his teammates to play with joy and spirit especially in his own journey of playing again after 2 years of not playing in the NBA. It remains to be seen if his w... »

Jeremy Lin had a mini-breakthrough in his 7th game of the season to regain his rhythm and shooting. He finished with season-high 12 points, 8 asssists, and 1 steal in 24 min. In the post-game interview, Coach Lloyd Pierce offered praise for both Trae Young and Jeremy Lin in a question about Trae’s performance. [1:52] When asked about Trae, Coach praised both Trae and Lin to be good in PnR. “Good to see Jeremy get the ball in the basket a little bit. A lot of them are In mid of PnR. We’ll find ways to get them going downhill. They are our two facilitators” "Nothing to be excited about with that one tonight." pic.twitter.com/d7dkcSkkpe — FOX Sports: Hawks (@Ha... »

Game 7: Atlanta Hawks vs Cleveland Cavaliers

One game after Jeremy Lin received the season high playing time at almost 19 minutes (18:58), he posted the season-low minutes at 9 minutes (9:19) in the 76ers game. He only played 4 minutes in the first quarter before playing another 5 minutes in the fourth quarter after the Hawks was trailing 22 points with 5 minutes left. It is unclear if 1 early turnover by Lin made Coach Pierce not rely much on Lin in a game against his old team where he worked as an assistant coach. Or there might be additional consideration of a back-to-back game to save his legs while still recovering. But the inconsistent playing time certainly does not help Lin’s attempt to regain his NBA form. There is a lot... »
