Jeremy Lin decided on the last minute to travel with the team on the 5-game road trip. He and Master Luo, his trusted massage therapist who came from Taiwan, traveled on the road and continues to help the recovery of injured left hamstring.

Both the Nets and the Suns have high pace offense but the 3pt shooting efficiency is the main difference in the Nets wins (37.6% 3FG) and losses (28.6% 3FG)

While the Nets are playing at a high pace, it is other categories in which they are inconsistent. Brooklyn is attempting nearly 34 3-pointers per game but is only making 31.7 percent of those shots.

The difference can be explained in their five losses. In defeats, the Nets are shooting 28.6 percent (51-of-178) from behind the arc as opposed to 37.6 percent (35-of-93) in wins.

KEY OF THE GAME: It would be difficult hit good 3P% shooting on the road but the Nets would have to achieve close to 35% if they want to win because they shoot such high number of 3-point shots. The Suns is ranked 20th in allowing Opponents to shoot efficient FG% at 0.354 (The Nets a little worse at #24 with 0.358) so they might have a chance.

 

Let’s hope and pray JLin will heal quickly, the Nets will continue their formula of success, play gritty basketball and hit their 3s together as a team, and most importantly finish the game healthy!

Let’s go, JLin and the Nets!
