G1 CHA @MIA Pregame Thread+Poll
Finally, there is only 1 day left before the 1st game of the season.
Jeremy Lin fans have been awaiting for this moment for a while.
Jeremy Lin strong plays as the best Hornets player in the preseason with both 1st and 2nd unit mean Coach Clifford will rely on him to empower the 2nd unit to start the game and close out the games strongly in the 4th quarter or Overtime.
The last Bulls game provided a blueprint on how Jeremy has earned Coach Clifford’s trust despite a slow start but Coach still stuck to the regular rotation and allowed Jeremy to play his aggressive game to close 1st half with 8pts and played a prominent role in both offense and defense in the 4th quarter to pull the tough win.
Unfortunately, some fans quickly forget how JLin had the freedom and faith to play his game in the preseason and worry about his role in the regular season games.
This was partly due to the mistreatment from HOU and LAL coaches who didn’t fully trust him in the past 3 years so understandably, there was a little anxiety.
One key fact that we should not ignore is how Coach Clifford has been consistent in giving Jeremy a lot of minutes to play his game.
Unless this changes, we should not give in to the excessive worry.
1. With Jeremy Lamb and Troy Daniels possibly out, will Coach Clifford ask Jeremy to shoulder the scoring load more?
2. How will the chemistry among Kemba/Batum/Lin continue to develop in the 4th quarter?
3. How will the 1st unit fare against the Heat 1st unit? Will the chemistry be there to go toes-to-toes with Wade+Bosh led lineup?
These are the main questions we should be looking forward to find out.
Let’s hope, pray, wish and support JLin to stay healthy and happy whenever he steps on the court. Only good things can happen when we see a smiling JLin on-court
