Game 6: Atlanta Hawks vs Philadelphia 76ers

Game 6: Atlanta Hawks vs Philadelphia 76ers

Jeremy Lin continued to show encouraging progress in his rehabbed body in the previous Bulls vs Hawks game to finish with 3 points, 3 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 turnovers in 19 minutes. His +9 was the second highest in the team after Dewayne Dedmon (+19) in the 85-97 loss. The starters struggled mightily in this game with roughly -18 to -21 but Lin managed to direct the 2nd unit and some starters with excellent playmaking to give the Hawks a chance in this game. Although his shooting rhythm (0-5) is not back yet, he continued to show his old form by drawing fouls and making sharper cuts and drives to orchestrate the offense. After the game, Lin posted a Bible verse on his Instagram account about... »

Game 5: Chicago Bulls vs Atlanta Hawks

Game 5: Chicago Bulls vs Atlanta Hawks

With Chicago Bulls playing the back-to-back game after playing the Charlotte Hornets yesterday, the Hawks can capitalize on their tired legs and seek their third win in what seems to be the easiest schedule in the NBA for the Hawks. Will Jeremy Lin get more playing time than 9-10 minutes? It seems to depends whether he gets in a roll to score many points based on what Coach Lloyd Pierce said at the post-game interview that many players will get opportunities to play. Chicago plays tonight in Charlotte before coming to Atlanta tomorrow. Dunn, Portis, Markkanen and Valentine are out tonight, and barring something dramatic, tomorrow as well. pic.twitter.com/Fgi2unWyEz — Kevin Chouinard (@... »

Game 4: Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks

Game 4: Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks

After playing the 3rd game in 5 nights, Jeremy Lin did not appear to have any fresh legs and finished with 0 points and 1 rebound in 9 minutes. It would be interesting to see how Jeremy’s body would respond with 3 days rest to play against Dallas Mavericks tonight. The anticipated match-up would be on the two rookies,Trae Young vs Luka Doncic, as the 5th and 3rd draft pick in 2018 NBA draft. The Mavericks made a deal with the Hawks to move up the draft so the Hawks drafted Doncic and sent him to Dallas. The starting lineup would stay the same. Dedmon is back from injury and come off the bench. Hawks will start the usual starters: Trae Young, Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince, Vince Carter,... »

Game 2: Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies

Game 2: Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies

Jeremy Lin got over the hurdle of finishing his first NBA game after 555 days. In an article by Howard Megdal, Lin was quoted that he hasn’t felt the rhythm of the game or felt right about his body after the long injury layoff.  Some days will be amazing and some days will be a grind. Still, he’s returning from almost two years away, so while he isn’t close to 100 percent, Lin simply may not know what 100 percent is at this point. To him, it’s about rhythm, rather than maximizing speed, and he knows that isn’t back yet, either. “I think it just takes time,” Lin said. “Some days it’s going to be amazing. Some days it’s going to be a grind. But no, it’s going to take time. I understand t... »

Game 1: Atlanta Hawks vs NY Knicks

The time has finally arrived for the first regular season game of 2018-19 season. It has been almost a year since Jeremy Lin played in an NBA game when he got hurt in the first game of 2017-18 season on Oct 18, 2017. And it will be 555 days since Lin finished an NBA game healthy on April 10, 2017 against Boston Celtics in the 2016-17 season. He just returned to play 5-on-5 so he will come off the bench in the Madison Square Garden against New York Knicks, where Linsanity was born in 2012. His playing time might still be limited in his Return-To-Play protocol. It might not be Linsanity game tomorrow with the still-rehabbing Lin but for Lin and his fans, seeing him healthy and enjoying to play... »

Preseason Game 2: Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies

Preseason Game 2: Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies

  In the first preseason game, Jeremy Lin finished with 4 points/3 assists/3 rebounds with 2-4 shooting (50% FG) in 16 minutes of action coming off the bench as part of his return to play protocol. He played quite well trying to get back to NBA form after a year recovering from injury. He had a bit of a scare when he was fouled hard during his first layup but thankfully he got back up immediately. As usual, the referee did not call foul although it was an obvious foul. It has become an alarming norm that happened with Lin over the years. In the second game, Coach Pierce plans to experiment having Lin and Trae Young together on the court for the first time after alternating them in the f... »
