G17 MIL @CHA Game Thread

After 4 consecutive games with 28+ min (28, 29, 29, 31), JLin had 2 games with 15 min due to foul trouble (4 PFs vs WAS) and TO trouble (2 quick TOs in Q4 vs CLE)

Coach Clifford made a costly mistake to go with JLamb to close out games since Hornets lost the 82-79 after benching JLin. The Cavs went on 16-8 run with Hornets shooting 3-17 with the Cavs getting open shots. Cavs guards (Delladova & JR Smith) scored 12 of these 16 pts

  1. Would Coach Clifford bench JLin quickly for early foul trouble & TOs?
  2. Would Coach experiment with Lamb to close out games?
  3. What adjustment would JLin do to get more PT & chance to close out games?
  4. FT attempts might be the best way for JLin to earn PT. In the 4 games with 28+ min, he had 13-17 FT Made-Attempts but he only had 1-1 in the WAS & CLE game

Let’s hope JLin find a way to draw a lot of FT attempts to help him to get PT and chance to close out games.

Let’s go, JLin! Relax, be your aggressive self & just play your game on matter what happens
