G51 WAS @CHA Game Thread
After a huge win when Jeremy Lin led the Hornets to beat LeBron James and the Cavs after 6 years of losing (23 games) in Kemba’s absence, he was not much utilized in the loss against the Heat. The script was to have Kemba come back as the lead PG but things didn’t go according to the script. Hassan Whiteside was dominating with a triple-double including 10 blocks. Both the 2nd unit and starters struggled against him. But we also saw how the 2nd unit did not rely on JLin to set up their offense, which was disheartening to see after seeing what JLin can do as the PG in the Cavs win.
- Would we see the same 2nd unit dynamics tonight of JLin not being trusted as the PG?
- Would Clifford rely on JLin’s playmaking with the starters to close the game?
Things never go smoothly with JLin’s career but we know he always persevere to give his best to his team when his number is called. He doesn’t need to be the #1 scorer but he can offer the best playmaking to allow the Hornets to play team-ball necessary to win.
Let’s go, JLin! Let’s pray and hope that he manages to be 100% healthy soon before to help the Hornets to win
