Game 73 OKC Thunder vs Toronto Raptors: Improved JLin Stats in the Last 7 Games

Although Jeremy Lin only scored 6 points in 15 minutes of play, he was able to be aggressive to score a long 2-point shot to start the game and got 2 FTs. He played great defense on Russell Westbrook but missed 2 threes in the 2nd half.

With Kahwi possibly resting on a Friday game with the Raptors hosting OKC Thunder, Lin might get to play more minutes. Lowry is still expected to be out to rest his injured ankle.

In his 14 games with the Raptors, Jeremy Lin has improved his plays in the last 7 games. He was missing all his 3 point shots in the first 7 games but improved to 30.4% 3FG. It is still below his 34.3% career average 3FG but it’s a great sign that he is getting comfortable in the Raptors system to find his shots.

He would need to produce one or two Linsanity-hot shooting games in the remaining 10 games so he can convince Coach Nurse to give him more playoff minutes. Let’s hope it happens sooner than later.
