Another Audition Chance for Jeremy Lin Among Trade Rumors
Among the recent rumor of the Raptors considering to trade for Lin, JJ Barea, or Jeff Teague as playmakers to help Kyle Lowry who experiences back injury issues, this game would provide one more chance to offer the Raptors another look of what Jeremy Lin can bring to their team.
The @raptors are badly in need of playmaking help, as Kyle Lowry's back injury has shown. Bradley Beal might sound like a nice answer, but the likes of JJ Barea or Jeremy Lin are a bit more realistic.

In the November 21 game against the Raptors, Jeremy Lin has aced his first audition with a Linsanity-like game by scoring 26 Pts, 4 out of 5 Threes, with 11-13 shooting in 25 minutes. Another strong game would certainly make an impression for the Raptors if they feel the need to trade for a playmaker before the February 7 trade deadline.
