Preseason1 DET @BKN Game Thread

Finally, the moment Lin fans have waiting for a long time has arrived. Jeremy Lin will start a game as the starting PG and the face of the Nets franchise along with Brook Lopez and Rondae-Hollis Jefferson.

Jeremy expressed his excitement to start playing preseason games after one and a half week of good training camp. Despite being preseason games, fans can expect to see the starting lineup that Coach Kenny Atkinson envision for the regular games. Multiple lineup will be experimented to assess which players play well together to help as the starters and the reserves. Will Coach Atkinson play the starters sparingly for 2 quarters or would he use the regular season rotation to get a win to inspire this young team? Only time will tell us.

Let’s hope and pray the Nets can enjoy playing together in their first preseason game and be healthy throughout the season. Let’s go, JLIN!

    Reposting Jeremy’s expectation

    Jeremy said the preseason opener vs the Pistons is likely to produce some surprises.

    After practice Wednesday, Jeremy Lin talked about Thursday’s preseason opener vs. the Pistons. He admitted that game is likely to produce some surprises.

    “The big thing right now is that we’ve been practicing. It’s one thing to practice, but when you get in the game and see the film, a lot of stuff that might work in practice in a real game is going to be different. This is going to be our first experience of really what it’s going to look like, and I have no idea what to expect.”

    most people will probably use League Pass or any of the freestreams link above.
    If anyone has better links, I’ll add it in the article

  • Rick Johnson

    Is League pass working? I called my cable provider Time Warner and they said I can’t even order it until the regular season starts. Is League pass free for the preseason?

  • Click Click

    There will be a Nets mini-documentary / preview with interviews and most likely footage of the open practice on YES, prior to the game. It will air at 7PM-7:30PM. I’ll record that preview show as well as the game and hopefully put those up on YouTube asap. Won’t be chatting much here tomorrow night because I’ll need my PC to record it. Might chat a bit on my laptop.

    Before the first preseason game starts, let’s review one of Lin’s 2012 post-interviews again. Here is one of my favorite ones. Check it out, everyone to see the same guy we love who is now still the same humble, wise in answering media questions, handsome, etc.

  • ProLin

    The easiest way to watch YES online is to subscribe to Sling TV and it’s Blue package ($25 a month). That will give you access to all the live feeds of Fox regional sports networks, which includes Yes. You also get access to a bunch of other channels like TBS. That is a much better deal than to pay for league pass. But NY/NJ area are subject to blackouts… I think you can just use VPN and bypass that.

    Why Vegas is Wrong About the Brooklyn Nets

  • Really looking forward to the game tonight. Not really too sure what to expect from the Nets but I feel there will be a lot of positives and also there will be a lot to work on. I’m sure Lin will be just as excited as we are. He now has the opportunity to lead a team and show everyone how much better he is compared to his Knicks days.

    I’ve written an article on Lin. Jeremy Lin has the X Factor.

  • Weifang

    I bought single team LP for the sake of Lin of course. I feel like NBA only hires some temporary interns or co-ops to maintain their LP website. It’s a clueless product. I asked their support to confirm if I can watch Nets preseason game 5 days ago, of course no response. I still question myself why I paid money for this…

  • heart

    This may be the first time we see a picture of the owner talking and visiting Lin in practice. Past team owners may have done this, but we have never have seen a photo of them greeting Lin like this. Prokhorov gets a good mark in my book so far!

  • Maknusia

  • Chris B.

    OT: I watched a show called Open Court yesterday on NBATV last night where they had a round-table of coaches discussing various topics. One of the topic was who was the smartest player they coached. MDA said it was Nash and Diaw. Thibs and Doc said Rondo. All those answers really surprised me.

  • HVJoy

    At 6:15 of the interview, Lin talked about how Kenny Atkinson, then Assistant Coach with the Knicks, worked with him.

  • takeme2cruz

    MDA didnt really coach Lin, he just unleashed Linsanity and even himself was shocked.

  • takeme2cruz

    Amen.

    It takes a big man (pun intended) to admit your mistakes, have a plan to fix your mistakes, and immediately put that plan into action.

    Everyone was shocked. I think even Lin himself was shocked. You’re right though. D’Antoni got out of the way of Lin and let Lin be Lin. Atkinson was the one who developed and coached Lin during Linsanity. He will unleash Lin again in Brooklyn.

    Hopefully, this preseason game would set the positive tone for the Nets and be the harbinger of a winning season.

  • norah mackenzie

    i am just nervous – hope that the nets win tbh. esp with the team being so new etc.

  • KHuang

    Actually, I think that Ish Smith will do better against Lin then a healthy Reggie Jackson would have.

    Lin historically has handcuffed Reggie Jackson and scored on him at will, as Lin is heavier and stronger and faster than Jackson.

    Ish Smith is a solid veteran who knows how to hold his own. He won’t stop Lin, but he won’t stop helping the Pistons either.

  • Click Click
  • KHuang

    I feel that the key to Anthony Bennett’s survival in the NBA is to provide stiff defensive center resistance in the paint so that opposing big men can’t just establish position inside.

    Bennett’s prime goal ought to be to prevent opposing big men from crashing the boards, setting up for bailout passes to an unguarded 3 point line, and closing down on guard penetration when opposing players run perimeter big man screens.

    There must be a reason that the 76ers doesn’t want to keep him. Normally it’s because of defence.

    The excitement level is about right. 😊

    Well, the 76ers are doing a complete overhaul.

    Ish Smith was just a rental to them.

  • Rick Johnson

    Will be up to 24 after today’s game.

  • KHuang

    Rajon Rondo is one of the intellectually smartest (if not THE smartest) player in the NBA.

    However, intellectual smart and HOOP SMART are NOT THE SAME.

    Rajon Rondo is definitely not “hoop smart”.

  • KHuang

    The “Brooklyn Nets” have now finally fully started their franchise.

    The Billy King years, the Nets were lost somewhere on the New Jersey Turnpike between the Meadowlands and Chinatown.

  • Rick Johnson

    Mets season over, Knicks get blown out, Rose getting bad PR on rape trial. Perfect storm for JLin to take over New York.

  • KHuang

    In truth, the Nets won’t “pummel” this Detroit team.

    The Pistons will come to play, led by their point guard Ish Smith who is a solid NBA backup veteran guard who will make sure the Pistons hang together and play hard. The Pistons will actually be tougher with Ish Smith leading them than Reggie Jackson who always gets pummelled athletically by Lin.

    It ought to be a good solid game for both teams, but the Nets have the edge on firepower and depth.

  • KHuang

    Right now with a healthy Vasquez and upcoming real talent in Whitehead, the Nets don’t need Ish or even my man Jimmer Fredette.

  • Click Click

    Yankees out, Jets 1-3, Giants 2-2. Only hope is for Rangers to be good this year.

  • norah mackenzie

    he may be talented but what is the point if his attitude or temperament is wrong? like cousins as well – talented but temperamental – he looks like he wants to fight all the time like rondo

  • norah mackenzie

    i hope that you are right cos hard to say

  • KHuang

    The KEY to winning this game:

    The Nets MUST NOT OVERPASS.

    A lot of times in the NBA, the right play is to go through a defense, not around it. And the big bruising Nets have the athletic firepower and roster depth to mow through pretty much anyone.

  • KHuang

    Correct.

    Rajon Rondo is not even that talented physically – he has slow foot speed and slow reflexes and a poor shooting touch.

    DeMarcus Cousins, he’s still struggling with fundamentals especially on defense and conditioning. Hopefully new coach Dave Joerger teaches Cousins the skills he’s missing.

  • psalm234

    Just a quick question about Game Poll on JLin Stats.

    Should we keep it? There were only 10+ people participating last season and it requires a lot of manual work to set them up.
    Unfortunately, my job has demanded more time so I’m not sure if we should continue doing so.

    Note: I know I’m so very late to tally up the winner from last season but I will find some time to announce the winner in the next 2 weeks 🙂 I apologize for the long delay

  • psalm234

    I think the starters would start the game by emphasizing ball movement to set the tone for the whole team but Lin and Brook would use their experience later in the game to know when to attack w/o overpassing.

    I get the sense Lin, Brook, Coach Atkinson want this Win to inspire the young guys to believe.

    A name reffering to a boy with everything good in a person. Kais are huggable, sweet, romantic, talented, and smart.
    They have great hair, a playful personality, and they’re everything good you can think of. Being humble, usually they dont admit or see how amazing they are. Kais are guys with good senses of humor and are fun to be around. Kais the nicest people you will ever meet. They’ll be your shoulder to cry on, and they never break promises. With beautiful souls, and eyes full of wisdom, you’ll know right away that they know a lot. Girls, if you ever find a Kai, hold on to him tight, because you’ll never find someone as amazing as him ever again. Kais only come every once in a lifetime. With a big heart in his chest, and he’ll accept who you are, what you do, and support you. You’ll swear that he’s an angel sent from above. He’s a Kai. Simple as that.

    Perhaps I can shed some light on whether NBA League Pass includes pre-season games. The answer is YES because the way League Pass defines “NBA season” includes both preseason and regular season. Therefore, as long as the game is not blocked out due to the game being either a local game or national TV broadcasted, you should be able to view the games on your NBA League Pass stream.

    Speaking of League Pass…

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/17681632/the-annual-nba-league-pass-rankings-part-1

    30. BROOKLYN NETS (20 points)

    I’m not proud of this, but I manipulated the rankings to shove the Nets into dead last. An annual perfect 10 in the League Pass Minutia category has spared Brooklyn the ignominy of the cellar too many times. Call it the Ian Eagle Corollary: Every five years, the holy rankings system will deduct at least two points from the Nets if such a deduction is required for accuracy. And so it shall be.

    Ironically, Linsanity II: The Gentrification might produce appealing hoops — even to those beyond Boston fans rooting against the Nets. Kenny Atkinson, the team’s new head coach, worked with Lin in New York before spending four years in Atlanta under Budenholzer. Plop Lin back into a Mike D’Antoni-style pick-and-roll attack, mix in some Hawksy side-to-side action, and you might brew up something fun.

    The Nets just don’t have the personnel to make it potent. Brook Lopez is too slow to set a pick and dive inside for an alley-oop; he’s an ambler who prefers to pop for jumpers, loft floaters from the midrange, and post up on both blocks. The Nets have ranked 21st or lower in pace in each of the past five seasons, and it’s hard to run when Lopez is the fulcrum.

    The Nets likely won’t have the spacing to unclutter the lane for Lopez, anyway, especially if they start Rondae Hollis-Jefferson — a tenacious, switchy defender whose bricky jumper is all pointy elbows. Still, it will be fun to watch Hollis-Jefferson, Chris McCullough and the pups develop, and Luis Scola will be sonning fools with floppy-haired up-and-under moves until he dies. Lopez improved his passing last season, and worked a mean give-and-go with Shane Larkin; maybe he’ll do the same with Lin.

    Hit me with a Swamp Dragons alternate jersey, and I might consider lifting the Nets out of last.

  • ProLin

    more dissing is always good.

  • Chris B.

    From my understanding, all games are archived even those that black out locally or due to being broadcast nationally. The only difference is how long the delay for the replay. For example if you are living in the New York area and the game is blackout locally, the delay could be up to 72 hours. If game on ESPN, I think the delay is about 24 hour or less. If you don’t live in New York, game should be available very quickly after game ends. I don’t know if this apply to preseason, but I doubt if there is any different. Hope that helps.

    i knew foye would start

  • 1mtoldman

    not only i got the time wrong but i got the city wrong; i did better with sophie but hey its the thought that counts.

  • Click Click

    Not like there are a lot of choices if they’re limiting Bog and Vasquez playtime. Expect Kilpatrick to be playing a good amount tonight. Foye might start, but Kilpatrick will probably get more minutes.

  • LinMadd

    how many minutes is the real question. I hope Lin average 30+ mins this season.

  • Click Click

    This starting lineup is only for tonight.

  • heart

    Randy Foye? Did not expect that! May be match up issue or bc he’s a veteran and another play maker? Hopefully everyone shoot well tonight. Stan Van Gandy is an experienced veteran coach. He has Andre Drummond, and that huge guy, Boban Marjanovic. Lopez and Booker need to be ready to stop them. If Lin was able to block Drummond before, they should be able to, I hope…

  • JLin fan from Australia

    Agreed:-) No problem. I’m just surprised to see Melbourne instead of Brisbane. That’s all:-)

  • Acbc

    Funny, in Toisan, Kai doi is naughty boy and guai doi is good boy.

  • LinMadd

    looks like owners are excited about this season.

  • Click Click

    With Bog limited on minutes, their only other choices are Foye and Kilpatrick. Foye is the vet, so I guess he gets the start tonight. Kilpatrick is a better player and scorer though.

  • Click Click
  • heart

    We didn’t hear how Foye was doing in training camp, but for some reason I sense his agent is behind the scene pushing for him to start. Started seeing tweets of his pics more lately…

  • psalm234

    praying for a good start for the Lincredible Nets & good health for both teams 🙏 🙏
    Now let’s play 🏀, JLin!

  • Win

    I thought they will start Sean Kilpatrick instead.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    My NBA league pass subscription only starts tomorrow so I can’t watch tonight’s game…Am I alone?…That really sucks..I was really looking forward to watching the first preseason game.

  • zxcvb

    According to Mike Mazzeo on ESPN: “Coach Kenny Atkinson says Foye has a chance to be the starter at two-guard.” Hmm. He either values IQ/experience or Bogs has been slacking a bit since the Olympics.

    amen

  • pandaboy99

    Wow they are starting Lin, lucky for him theres no all stars like Ronnie price, patrick beverley or PJ hairston to take his place.

  • zxcvb

    No player but Lin will affect Lin’s minutes, which will probably be 34mpg. Only injuries can limit him.

  • heart

    Amen! Psalm at 7:29pm, let’s you and I and all who want to, in unison lift up our prayers to God for Lin’s sake!

  • blueCypher

    This is a part of Lin’s game I’m not sold on yet. I need to see him attempt and hit floaters more often

  • blueCypher

    Could this be the starting lineup for the season ?
    I was thinking maybe Atkinson wants to deploy Bogdonavich and Kilpatrick as 2nd unit offensive sparks

  • Click Click

    Bog is starting instead of Foye.

  • blueCypher

    This Joe Harris guy can really be a shooting gem. I’m lookin out for him

  • psalm234

    yes, I think it will come naturally in game flow once he’s in rhythm with regular rotation minutes.
    First thing is to get the new shooting form consistent throughout the game

  • heart

    Love Hamilton’s floater. That guy has lots of offensive weapons. Love Lin’s new shot too, looking smoother, less effort! May Lin have confidence, calmness, and enjoyment of playing w/ his new teammates tonight! Also, may HC Atkinson experience success tonight– his first-time coaching an NBA preseason opener game!

  • Click Click

    Nets playing sloppy so far. Definitely not in sync. Nobody is hitting their shots. Lin’s the only guy scoring…

  • kauaiblue

    Are the other nets players good?

  • gandychan

    Defense looks very poor right now.

  • CJSHYY
  • Alaingrvis

    offense is clunky and defense is slow to rotation. !st game though

  • Vincent

    idk why brook and lin havent played any pick and roll really

  • Win

    No chemistry…

  • LimitedEdition

    Terrible, especially on defense

  • zxcvb

    That was elite. Everyone knew he was going to drive with the clock running down and he scored anyway.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea. Give it time.

  • zxcvb

    More worried about Brook’s defense…Pistons are 3 for 3 on him so far.

    The offense is off, not spreading out. Only Lin is doing work. His teammates are lost so far…

    damn why is lin out i know its pres eason but come on haha

  • Alaingrvis

    preseason maybe a 21 minute cap

    Alright, Brook finally got a bucket. We need him to get going.

    Finally, something good by Brook.

  • zxcvb

    Play with Hamilton next!

  • kauaiblue

    Oy! Thx

    I think Lin and Hamilton make a better duo. Not based on this game, just in general.

  • Click Click

    Entire 2nd unit is now in.

    Is Hamilton fast? Never see him plays

  • Alaingrvis

    defense and offfense is getting better

  • kauaiblue

    Went to barclays center today a d bought my jlin #7 NETS jersey!!

  • Win

    Damn, Scola really is an animal…

  • zxcvb

    From what I’ve seen of his highlight vids, he moves really well for a PF/C. Very much a “Euro”-style center. Mobile and versatile.

  • Click Click

    Wow, didn’t know Joe Harris can drive lol

  • cshot

    harris is impressing me lol

  • Click Click

    Luckily Lin was hot early. If he didn’t score all those buckets, Nets would be in huge trouble right now.

  • Win

    Nice move by Joe Harris

  • zxcvb

    Good recovery by the Nets. Just needed a “Linjection” of energy after trying to get Brook going early. Nets fans don’t want to hear it, but this is Lin’s team. He needs to be #1a when he’s on the court because his success gets everyone going.

  • CJSHYY

    Maybe he will not play in 2nd half.

  • zxcvb

    Yeah. I don’t get too up and down though. Basketball is a game of runs.

  • Win

    Only 2 ast for the entire team…..

    offense a bit clunky still

  • CJSHYY

    A little bit low… but they just couldn’t make the shot…smh!

  • Click Click

    Good D by 2nd unit.

  • Wty

    I like the timely time out, as if regular season. It fueled the quick turnaround. Good coaching.

  • zxcvb

    Nets mostly worked on defense (70% said Kenny). Also, Brook being rusty put a wrench into their sets.

  • kauaiblue

    I thought this was going to pass…

  • psalm234

    the Nets looked nervous in the early min but made a litte run after a timeout by Coach Atkinson.
    It’s a good sign

  • blueCypher

    I expect Kilpatrick to have a really good season

  • 1mtoldman

    nets starting backcourt outscore pistons starting backcourt 11 to 2 unfortunately pistons starting frontcourt outscore nets starting frontcourt 21-6

    I’m liking our bench. Good D, smooth on offense.

  • Alaingrvis

    2nd unit is his. he has to score

  • stam

    The bench actually looks smoother than the starters lol

  • blueCypher

    I know, do we have to think about atlantic division winners haha ?

  • heart

    2nd unit plays faster. Love Hamilton’s game. This guy can be a starter.

  • Alaingrvis

    they fit a little better. the starters got better. lopez still hasnt gottten warmed up

  • psalm234

    Hamilton, Kilpatrick, Vasquez, Scola plus Harris will make a strong 2nd team

  • Ulysses Modder

    Problem of the first unit was Lopes that did not played well in offense and not defense

  • Win

    Lin gotta subbed out a little too early. I think he should at plays at least 20 mins even in a pre season game.

  • cshot

    scola is a little bit too agressive at times but i like it

  • NONONO

    it is first preseason game. Lin did well. not worry Brook will be fine.

  • psalm234

    my range is 30-45 depending on team defense and good health

  • stam

    is grevis recovering from an injury? He looks weird when he handles the ball…

  • Vincent

    nets benched seems to have gelled more than their starters

  • LinMadd

    that’s what I feel too. Maybe Brook isn’t meshing well with the fast pace BB.

  • blueCypher

    Joe Harris can really get some relevant minutes , just let that thing fly

  • kauaiblue

    Ia that good enough for playoffs?

  • cdblue10

    That’s very possible and doable

  • zxcvb

    Neither looks sharp. Brook gummed up the starters, but luckily Lin was there to carry them.

  • stam

    Definetly, Lin’s TO was cause of miscommunication… but it will get better as they continue to practice

  • zxcvb

    Would like to see Lin play with Hamilton here.

  • psalm234

    Pistons starters had much better spacing that Nets starters.
    They’ll need to work more on the offensive spacing

  • Vincent

    kenny should go to the brook-lin pnr not brook-lin pick and pop

  • Click Click

    Don’t worry guys, once Brook-Lin gels, it’s game over. Gonna take time. I predicted it will take 1-2 months for them to fully gel.

  • blueCypher

    Ya, hope the coach mixes in some starters with 2nd unit

  • cdblue10

    Prolly they don’t wanna lay their cards yet

  • NONONO

    I really cannot see Nets wouldn’t do better than Hornets last year – by comparing every position.

  • LinMadd

    so far it didn’t look like Brook is a PnR big.

  • JLin fan from Australia

    Whatever wins they need to have to go to playoffs! Am I dreaming big??? Don’t think so. They can do it:-)

  • blueCypher

    It should take faster than that haha. There’s only 6 months in the season.

  • DX

    The percentage is insane. Lead by Lin 3/3, whole team has 68.8% on PG and 60% on 3Ps, but FT is only 70%.

  • psalm234

    close .. Pistons was the #8 seed with 44 Wins last season

  • Vincent

    yeah I believe the problem is having booker and rondae on the floor at the same time because they cant shoot that well

  • psalm234

    Just need team defense and great ball movement 🙂
    They can definitely do it

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    Lin looks terrific. Lopez looks like he’s experimenting with his perimeter game.

  • cdblue10

    If you free up yourself Lin will find you even in the slightest hole

    brook needs to fire those 3s without hesitation. had plenty of time but it will get better

  • blueCypher

    This RHJ kid is athletic that’s for sure haha. Gonna be a lot of finishes from a Lin-assist this year

  • NONONO

    Brook did not expect the ball would pass to him so easily. When he gets used to it, he would shot the lights out.

  • Alaingrvis

    1 issue is the passing lanes but its getting better.

  • blueCypher

    Ya, it’s fine. Lopez is gonna let those fly without hesitation later

  • Vintage

    I don’t think they’re using their best offensive sets yet.

    im really excited tho… atkinson is going to lin a lot here, as for their team they will mesh just give them time

  • LinMadd

    same

  • stam

    lol brook was like huh? the ball is in my hands….

  • Alaingrvis

    he style looks so different from before. Will take some time for him to adjust. He is basically playing like a pf

    One more stretch in the 3Q probably (no 4Q for Lin). Time to get 20 or a few dimes, or both.

  • blueCypher

    Lin would have had 17 to end the half lol. If not for that head scratching lay up

  • xeroid

    He should have dunk the ball, too close to basket, his hand bounced from the rim.

  • Win

    Is fine, I want to look at the 2nd unit too so.

    I think he wanted to dunk but changed his mind. Hence the hand hitting the rim.

  • Alaingrvis

    thats what i thought

  • Win

    I think they really should let the starers play a little more mins.

  • HVJoy

    Hope he is not hurt because of that

  • LinMadd

    maybe in 2nd half or during regular season

  • blueCypher

    Ya, it looked like it. ah well, preseason

  • Alaingrvis

    i agree but not that much. maybe 25 minutes since the team is new.

  • AL

    Guy guys, I am so excited. Lin is tasting the fruits and His faithfulness!!!!!!
    We already knew it this season!!

    Now what is the cheapest/discounted way to buy a JLin jersey? I am in Australia if that helps? Thanks!!

  • stam

    Lol, Lin fans are still scarred from his past teams

  • cshot

    dont think that was a dunk. he just mistimed his jump imo. he was stretching out the ball wtih only one hand

  • Michael

    Ask Brent to send you one as a Christmas present.

  • Dan Ang

    Damn granny got flava!

  • xeroid

    Don’t you have Chinatown there? There must be imitation stuff there.

  • cdblue10

    Don’t do that it’s just pre-season

  • AL

    wanted to show some kindness I suppose. no need to be so aggressive for preseason

  • heart

    Vasquez and Scola should pass more to Hamilton and Harris. Seems like they keep doing the same thing driving into traffic and turn over. They don’t pull out the defense.

  • Dan Ang

    Kilpatrick bringing the energy!

  • blueCypher

    Did Joe Harris just miss 2 free throws in a row

  • blueCypher

    They don’t have Reggie Jackson for 6-8 weeks

  • Dan Ang

    If they are not, then that’s one less team to worry about.

  • AL

    cannot agree more… may be I should wait a year and buy one of the passed season? Not a hard core hard core fan but wanted to support and strutt about my brother in Christ. What a story and witness

  • Alaingrvis

    joe harris was a steal

  • kauaiblue

    Oh yeah, thanks!

  • blueCypher

    Yup, I think so.

  • Vincent

    i hope lin can rack up some dimes.. he would have had a bunc, but instead his teammates got fouled

  • NONONO

    0 assists? it would be up much more when his teammates get used to his fast , sometimes no look passes.

  • AL

    haha How do I email him?

  • takeme2cruz

    I love what I am seeing so far. Lin will ne way much better this season.

  • Dan Ang

    15 point game from JLin?…..All day, every day…..twice on Sundays!

  • Click Click

    I probably shouldn’t record in such high settings. Already over 4 gigs’ worth of footage…

  • psalm234

    I remember Lin was also this sharp throughout the preseason with the Hornets.

    But then they limited the min. Starting this time will definitely helps him to keep that HOT-shooting form 🙂

  • Click Click

    1st half…

  • Win

    The Hornets most starters played 16 mins.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Vasquez looks a bit too slow for me…He looks like he’s still injured or something

  • cdblue10

    New York is still Lin’s playground.He own that!

  • Vincent

    yup plus he has the full confidence of his coach and teammates this time around.

  • psalm234

    you record the whole game? whoa…
    maybe 720p is enough

  • blueCypher

    Is there a stream for the YES broadcast?

  • takeme2cruz

    Not this time. Not this time.

  • heart

    His teammates have to finish well at the basket or shoot w/ confidence!

  • Dan Ang

    Nice! Midseason form!

  • takeme2cruz

    I miss you Brooklyn. My first home in America for 9 years.

  • Vincent

    they definitely do! this is pre season so hopefully they get their shooting woes out now

  • Michael

    Click is going for 4k…

  • Dan Ang

    Lucky!

  • psalm234

    The 1st half of the 1st preseason game shows Lin’s versatility …

    If his team needs him to score as an SG, he can do it with ease.

  • zxcvb

    Exactly. During preseason he played his game. Even got big minutes on the regular.

    And then when the regular season started…back to McHale/BS usage.

  • zxcvb

    …in 11 minutes.

  • zxcvb
  • blueCypher

    thanks

  • Vincent

    is there a stream to watch the half time show?

  • takeme2cruz

    There wasnt any Chinatown either. Had to go to canal St in mahattan.

  • SeaKing33

    Can someone break down the first half for me?
    I’m guessing the starters are out for 2nd half?

  • zxcvb
  • Rick Johnson

    Has Lin played PG in the 2st Half or just SG? 0 AST’s?

  • Vincent

    thanks!

  • LinMadd

    he played PG, blown dunk and a lot of hockey passes/assists. But he shoots without hesitating. That’s something i like this season about Lin.

  • zxcvb

    Tony Parker PG. Lots of touches, but not a lot of ball-handling. Motion offense not in place yet.

  • Michael

    If you keep going East you will eventually end up in one of China’stowns.

  • blueCypher

    Haha,he should have just layed it up

  • Vincent

    i hope lin play atleast the first half of the 3rd q

  • cdblue10

    I keep doing that but I end up in Vegas…LOL

  • takeme2cruz

    Hasn’t been there for 25 yrs, so much change

  • Michael

    Hahaha…:P

  • takeme2cruz

    Wrong east.

  • LinMadd

    oh that missed layup was funny but then he made a 3 after to shut the doubters up

  • zxcvb

    I think he was talking about the RHJ missed dunk off the nice Lin pass.

  • psalm234

    I don’t know where you’re going to upload them but you know all of us appreciate it much 🙂
    man, that’s a lot of commitment for preseason+regular season+playoff games

  • blueCypher

    I think his minutes will be around the same like the 1st half

  • Sueki

    no words can describe my feeling……. HAPPY HAPPY

  • takeme2cruz

    I think he was between that or a dunk.

  • zxcvb

    Maybe they’ll conserve Lin’s minutes tonight so he can play 25-30mpg against the Knicks on Saturday. That’d be more entertaining.

  • Win

    He should play the entire 3rd qtr

  • Alaingrvis

    oh no oh no oh no rhj let it go

  • Michael

    Maybe he was waiting for the guy to catch up and ran out of runway.

  • takeme2cruz

    Pls stop.

  • gandychan

    Rhj has no shame! Wow!

  • Michael

    Lol glad my feed has no audio.

  • cdblue10

    He needs some gown..hehehe

  • Vincent

    he should lol but realistically id be happy for him to play half 3rd and close the 4th

  • Click Click

    Takes guts to sing on camera, but that was cringeworthy. Don’t ever do that again, RHJ, lol.

  • Michael

    It’s not just his threes, the detroit guards are almost getting nothing when he is defending them.

  • zxcvb

    Great D by Lin!

  • 7iger

    Stephen Curry play in Lin’s place instead

  • zxcvb

    He even got a stop on Drummond

  • Click Click

    Anthony Bennett… gonna be interesting.

  • AL

    Yes!!

  • Win

    Thats what Lin should do. Play with a lot of different line up.

  • zxcvb

    Okay, Lin can rest soon. Got the Knicks game at MSG on Saturday.

  • zxcvb

    There’s a dime.

  • Click Click

    That motion offense lookin’ real good.

  • AL

    gonna be delicious

  • zxcvb

    Lin out. Surely done for the night.

  • Vincent

    lin looks great

  • Click Click

    I hope so. He’s done more than enough for 1st preseason game.

  • zxcvb

    Phenomenal. So confident in the 3pt jumper. Missed his last two but that’s how you become elite. Hit 4? Keep shooting. Miss 4? Keep shooting.

  • Vincent

    i wonder if msg is gonna cheer or boo lin.. lol

  • psalm234

    Lin played very well with all the players ..

    He’s in full command of this team

  • zxcvb

    Wanna see him play 25min at MSG on Saturday. Deliver a taste of things to come.

  • Vincent

    yeah absolutely and kenny absoultely embodies that mindset

  • kauaiblue

    Will the knicks game be on tv?

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    they may cry

  • zxcvb

    Probably both. Mostly polite “golf claps” I’m guessing.

  • HVJoy

    on MSG network

  • kauaiblue

    Thanks! Shucks, i wont be in town… no espn?

  • zxcvb

    That was a 14-0 run Lin led.

    That seems to be how he plays. Whether his team is hot or cold to start, he makes it a game and then uses a ridiculous 2nd half run (14-0, 22-4) to put the game away.

  • Click Click

    Kilpatrick looks good tonight, but his shots just aren’t going in. He’s putting too much on his shots and layups.

  • Michael

    3rd ?

  • Alaingrvis

    What Lin team can have 15 assist and Lin only has 1 of them

  • HVJoy

    sorry, no

  • Vincent

    lin puts up 21 points with only 11 minutes of game time… imagine if kenny gives him 33-36 a game

  • zxcvb

    Motion offense! Lin is playing the Tony Parker role and I’m cool with that. All I want for Lin is lots of touches. He can honestly play both SG and PG now.

  • kauaiblue

    Ok, ill tape it on my vhs… lol

  • zxcvb

    Well, 17 minutes.

  • Vincent

    haha yeah 17

  • heart

    I think he’s forcing too much. He does have energy factor.

  • Michael

    21 Points without being a ball hog, such a huge contrast to some other ….

  • Click Click

    Blah, the 3rd unit / D-Leaguers let Pistons back in the game.

  • zxcvb

    Probably wants to play with Lin. Get some easy looks.

  • Vincent

    the commentators have been talking about lin for awhile… like any commentator would talk about their star player

  • blueCypher

    Confidence, not just the tweak in his shot. confidence

  • Alaingrvis

    yup

  • psalm234

    Nets announcers gave props to JLin’s sharp-shooting form!

    A hot-shooting @JLin7 rested with 5 min left in Q3
    Nets up 73-63
    21pts w/ 7-11 shooting (5-8 3s)
    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/784201078241763328

  • Vincent

    yes and that is a result of kenny and his teammates giving him the reigns

  • zxcvb

    This is the treatment Harden got in Houston. For the first time ever, a team wants Lin to succeed and isn’t trying to diss him with every breath.

  • Alaingrvis

    lopez almost played like a pf. Shooting threes lol. Very interesting

  • blueCypher

    yup. that is important.

  • blueCypher

    What do you guys think of Nets winning the atlantic ?

  • Vincent

    yeah i was surprised lopez played so few minutes tho..

  • LinMadd

    i was going to bet on that in Vegas

  • Vincent

    yes all of houston’s commentators were anti lin. stu lantz and mcdonald were mostly negative towards lin, however charlotte treated him a bit better, but treated him as a role player.. now he is completely being talked about as the leader in an offense that works well for him

  • HVJoy

    It will take Lin fans sometime to get used to this “Harden” treatment in Brooklyn. 🙂

  • I am The Jason

    Over Toronto and Boston.???? I don’t see Brooklyn winning it this year.

  • Vincent

    dang our bench lost the lead

  • blueCypher

    Even though I am not sold on Boston as this juggernaut , they will probably be the winner

  • Alaingrvis

    Big man just shouldnt do too much especailly in preseason. gravity destroys their knees

  • zxcvb

    Nets will surely outperform predictions by 10-20 wins. But other than that…too early. Motion offense looks ugly and defense is sound, but soft.

  • psalm234

    yes, BOS and TOR are very experienced and have been together for 3-4 seasons
    Tough opponents

  • Click Click

    Twice.

    But it’s OK, just preseason. Atkinson has to see what lineups we’ve got and experiment. Also wants to give the fringe guys some minutes because it’s their last chance in the league.

  • Briiick

    Lin is a SUPER STAR in Nets ! 3/4 of their talk is about Lin.

  • cdblue10

    highly unlikely but they might get lucky for a trade mid season…still doable though

  • blueCypher

    Agree. Boston and Toronto are really the top dogs

  • AL

    exactly!! pent up for too long

  • psalm234

    as it should be 🙂
    I’m sure the Nets fans spirit will get better after 3-4 more strong preseason games!

  • Vincent

    brook was on vacation in hawaii lol that explains his rustiness

  • blueCypher

    Hmm, what do you think of Kenneth Farried midseason trade with Nuggets ?

  • cdblue10

    I’ll drool for that…

  • ViNuyork

    there’s LIN shirt for $23 sale only for today…. got our family uniform for our several game tickets –thanx click click

  • blueCypher

    Ya, although I really hope Sean Marks stays on his “track” and not do any crazy moves

  • Michael

    Good they are moving the ball again, the end of the third guys were trying way too hard.

  • Vincent

    looks like lin is done for the night

  • Vincent Lee

    Lin’s sitting on the floor by the baseline; giving his teammates the seat?

  • cdblue10

    I bet he will,that’s the only way to build a good team

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Click Click

    Being a good leader. They had to sit there all night, so Lin is giving up his seat on the bench.

  • Vincent

    nice to meet you vincent.

  • LinMadd

    he likes to stretch

  • heart

    I saw Hamilton rolled to the basket w/ hands up but not one passed to him. He plays good defense too. I’m very impressed w/ his games. If he plays w/ Lin, he will get lots baskets from Lin and Lin will get assists from him.

  • NONONO

    Nets has only one player over 10 pts. No good.

  • zxcvb

    Ironic but the NBA PG role has evolved. Sometimes you gotta score; other times you gotta pass. Sometimes you gotta stand out of the way and let someone else run the show.

  • NONONO

    Need to see more assists.

  • zxcvb

    Like that drive by RHJ.

  • zxcvb

    Takes time in a motion offense. All guys have to be clicking. For now, I’m satisfied with unselfish ball movement even if Lin was the only one who could capitalize.

  • psalm234

    Coz they play around ~20min
    Not everyone can be Lin to score 21pts in 17 min 🙂

    Scola just got 10 pts

  • kauaiblue

    Why no lopez in 2nd half?

  • zxcvb

    Resting. He looked rusty all game, which is understandable for a big heavy 7-footer like him.

  • I am The Jason

    They have 3 players over 10 pts

    Lin 21pts
    Harris 12pts
    Scola 10 pts

  • Win

    McCullough is long like lamb, if not longer…

  • Click Click

    RHJ, Yogi, and CMC looking really good.

  • blueCypher

    No need to log heavy minutes in preseason. I think they will ratchet up his minutes towards the end of the preseason

  • zxcvb

    I really hope they can hold on and win this. Just seeing that “W” will be a mental boost.

  • Steppen03

    I see This Team beating the Celtics as is. We’re doing this well on a FIRST game. I don’t negatives. But if we add 2 more good players – The Nets can compete in EC Finals.

  • zxcvb

    That big 14-0 run came with Hamilton at center. Hmm. Something to watch going forward.

  • zxcvb

    I like this Yogi Farrell guy already. Just needs some seasoning.

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    i’m already sold on Hamilton over Brooks as the pnr big with Lin

  • Yuyang Deng

    This team is so unselfish, everyone want each other to succeed. No ego, it’s so good

  • Click Click

    It’s hilarious how they keep showing Stan Van Gundy. He’s like “how in the world are these 3rd stringers / D-Leaguers doing this to me?” LOL

  • NONONO

    Make fans happy too.

  • kauaiblue

    Jlin is being highlighted with the nets, as opposed to being marginalized and blamed when he was with rox, lakers, and hornets… im not sure what to do!

  • zxcvb

    It’s silly, but as soon as I saw Hamilton’s extended highlight video, my first thought was: “This guy is PERFECT for Lin.”

  • Rick Johnson

    Has Bennett gotten any play time? How’s he look?

  • Vincent

    I think brook will improve at time goes on he looked super slow and rusty tonight

  • kauaiblue

    I really like atkinson…such a contrast from smart, woodson, mchale, scott, and clifford… whew, thats a lot of bad coaches our guy had to put up with…

  • zxcvb

    I just like Hamilton’s game better. Brook is insanely skilled, but he’s slower and more traditional.

    Hamilton is more mobile and modern (can shoot, cut and run the floor).

  • Briiick

    BrookLin is going to destroy a lot of teams this season and make a lot nanalyst eat cow.

  • chan c

    Ha ha ha So ‘ON POINT’!

    ‘made me come out from my Lurking mode!
    Congrats JLin!!!
    Let’s go!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    1-4 2 point

  • zxcvb

    Dominique Wilkins may have a stroke.

  • I am The Jason

    Clifford was not a bad coach. The rest were.

  • NONONO

    why Bojan not playing?

  • Alaingrvis

    they havnt yet figures out a way to maximize each other. 2nd quarter it got better

  • kauaiblue

    Clifford was baaad…

  • zxcvb

    “Still recovering from Olympic play” is the official explanation. But Kenny said before the game that Foye has a chance to win the starting SG role. Huh? I wonder if Bojan might be moved…

  • Vincent

    i honestly liked foye and lin tonight.. foye was very willing to pass the ball to lin. from interviews it seems like bojan wants to be one of the stars on the nets

  • zxcvb

    WIN. Lin dominates. Nets win. Unselfish play all-around despite rust.

  • guest

    I know it’s only preseason but ESPN projected Detroit 47.5 wins and 4th seed of Eastern Conference and Brooklyn Nets at 29 wins. Hmmm…?

  • Steppen03

    Two is better than one!! Are we judging Brook’s game already ??
    Word: Omer Asik.
    Brook is an All-stars.
    I hope we only have good words for JL7’s teammates.

  • Dan Ang

    WOOOOHOOO

  • zxcvb

    Yeah, Foye is at a stage where he’s happy just to start. Bojan wants to statpad as much as possible because he’s in a contract year. So unless Marks wants to keep Bojan long-term…trade would be a smart move.

  • Briiick

    Another cow eater.

  • Dan Ang

    Experts scrambling

  • ViNuyork

    player of the game–while playing w/o pressure n having fun 🙂 🙂

  • zxcvb

    It’s only preseason…that’s why Lin only played 17m and didn’t drop 40 on these guys.

  • joyce ward
  • Briiick

    His last shot was good, with good reflection.

  • SeaKing33

    lol at Net’s Reddit…they are just realizing Lin’s ability

  • blueCypher

    Confidence. Empowerment. Free

  • GoJLin!

    Great! First Win! 17 min 7-11, 5-8, 2-2; 21Pts/1Ast/3R/1S +14 !!! Cheer! Thanks God to protect JLIN! Keep him happy and healthy!

  • zxcvb

    I remember that the Hornets wanted Bogdanovic last season. How about Bojan for Lamb? I started to hate Lamb last year, but I think he can be rehabilitated with Kenny and Lin in charge.

  • Briiick

    Lin used to play like a winning star when short-leashed.

  • cshot

    i think id rather rely on bog than lamb. bogdan could probably come off the bench and get lots of pts and provide spark. foye was VERY willing to pass to lin and i was really suprised at that. Bojan seems like the more selfish type in my opinion. And lamb just needs to bump up his IQ a bit…. a lot

  • blueCypher

    H*** no, Bog is more reliable and better than Lamb imo

  • Click Click

    Great game. Tonight showed what the Nets are capable of. Once Brook-Lin starts clicking, Bojan playing, defense tighter, and a 12-man rotation set, this team will be scary.

  • Vincent

    yes plus lamb was a bit of a hog.. he would call for the ball right away whenever lin brought it past half court..

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    they have been trying to move Lamb together with Hawes but no takers

  • Vintage

    He’ll get better throughout the season, but I don’t think he knows where he’s supposed to be on the court yet. Hopefully Atkinson can work his magic on him. Atkinson seems like a hands on type of guy, so that’ll be an important factor that Bennett didn’t have in recent years.

  • guest

    Poor Hornets…Damn!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • joyce ward
  • HVJoy

    Was it Brook who threw the towel over Lin?

  • Briiick

    They become bobcats again.

  • takeme2cruz

    Lin’s new form shooting is a really concern….not for me but for the league.

  • fungch1218

    Be nice. They helped Lin re-gain joy on bball.

  • clkor7

    Yeap!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • CJSHYY

    Just saw the interview… it’s so happy… finally he can have his own team. Haha!

    I think they fight hard but Boston is better team. Batum is 3-11 8pts 23 min

  • guest

    Last preseason, didn’t they go 7-0?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    17 min for Lin, 12 min for Brook
    They played the least minutes among starters.
    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson led the Nets with a +/- of 20 and 21 mins (the highest among players)
    Next is Lin with 14
    Randy Foyd and Trevor Booker with 11
    Justin Hamilton is the one who led the bench with a +/- of 9 (5 rebounds, 1 block shot, 9 points in 20 minutes. 3rd highest among players)

    Sean Kilpatrick is the one with the 2nd highest minutes, 3 points, and a horrendous +/- of -16.

  • cshot

    Batum 23 min 8 pts, MKG 23 min 7 pts. ouch

  • clkor7

    Yeap! The new Ivy league Cali boys bromance 🙂

  • stam

    Were there any starters on the pistons DNP?

  • LinMadd

    Cliff could have won more games if he didn’t suppress Lin so much last season over Batum and Kemba. But we know he was just following orders from the top. They really wanted Batum and they knew they needed to give him a max.

  • Peter Truong

    I think so.

  • cshot

    And my GOSH, Brian Roberts got sent back to the Hornets? Poor dude getting thrown everywhere. Honestly think hes a pretty solid backup

  • joyce ward

    Hey guys, still real busy at work, but glad basketball season is upon us. Loved Jlin’s game tonight. He played very well. I love that Atkinson is giving him time for his mind to transition from off the bench spark to the PG leading the team. The one thing that I love about Lin is that he is very smart and a quick learner. I loved that he told the truth in the interview before the game, not knowing what to expect from this game. He truly is the leader on this team. I love in the interview that lin knew exactly what they needed to do to clean up the team’s play. Also, Lin is about to about to pull out stuff that Lopez never knew he had to make him a better player. Lin is going to teach him how to play like a big, and make him a lethal threat to any team in the NBA. That is what lin did to Tyson Chandler. The Nets fans are in or fun basketball and watching their team make it to the NBA playoffs.

    Never mind ESPN, they really have become the joke of basketball as a reputable news sport source.

    Looks like it’s the game plan of the coach, of course it helps to have a coach he empowers Lin to lead and do well! Instead of those who marginalized him for outperforming so and so fake star. Coach and FO called out Lin as “the leader of the team” I doubt they dare not to pass to him. If Lin was benched or marginalized those teammates would ignore him on open shots for sure.

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    Seriously hope Nets will win the Atlantic Division so I can win some $$$. Their toughest competition will be Raptors but I really don’t see them as that great of a team.

    Take a listen Lin gave lots of good info on his post game podcast tonight from Nets Daily.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    this was NOT “just” a preseason game! all the doubters say that same crap. but the truth is that the pistons played their starters more minutes than us! and yes they missed reggie, but their team also had continuity. we were a new team, new coach, new everything. plus we didnt play bogs. AND our bench held it’s own vs the pistons starters (minus reggie of course). then in the 3rd quarter, with hamilton as the 5, we blew them off the court with a 14-0 run.

    there is NO WAY this is some fluke. what i saw out there was teamwork, hustle, and bit of that old linsanity… and to think, no bogs, brooks played very little, and skilpat missed everything. things can only go up from here…

    playoffs? we chasing 3rd seed baby!!!

    yes you’re right but I wish lin stops inventing new ways to miss easy freebie shots. Its his quirk I guess. It was great seeing Jeremy Curry shooting 60% from the 3 tonight, I can’t say that his shot is fixed after only seeing ONE preseason game, but im optimistic! Every good game from Lin we celebrate, we always go overboard in the partying here. Its unfortunate but this leads alot of us to go off the deep when Lin has his “stinker games”

    A little concerning that Lin had only ONE assist. What does that say about the team? Teague with established talent got 6 assist in Indiana tonight.

  • psalm234

    no worries … it’s all about perspective
    Even the great ones would make mistake here and there (i.e. missed dunks, CP3 was on skate with broken ankles, etc.) The great ones will laugh about it and produce. The insecure one will get embarrassed and shirk to the corner.

    Lin wanted to focus on his shooting and this is a great trend. Unless Lin had problems converting layups for 10 games, I wouldn’t worry about the 1%-5% mistakes. Otherwise, we can’t see the positives in our mind

    Different offenses and roles. Lin was playing combo guard role tonight in Kenny’s motion offense. They were moving the ball as much as possible to find the open man for an open shot. Lin played off ball SG catch and shoot on many plays.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Tonight we didn’t necessarily need [the pick-and-roll],” Lin said. “There will be times where we will have to be more heavy pick-and-roll, I understand that and each game has its own personality. Tonight we were getting good shots and it was flowing and the guys were finding me and that’s unselfish basketball and I was the recipient of that tonight.”

  • psalm234

    Lin also had a hockey assist on RJ’s almost dunk but he got fouled. That’d be 2 assists.
    Don’t forget he only played for 17min. In 34min, he’d have at least 4-5 assists
    Teague also played 26 min tonight.

    Yes, it still shows his teammates need more time to fix spacing and chemistry. No worries, it will come 😀
    This is what preseason games are for. Tweak and develop chemisty in real games.

    don’t tell me JLin is the next Shawn Kemp when it comes to fathering children…

  • SeaKing33

    I honestly think he underestimated his vertical, dude barely exploded and his wrist caught the rim. He should dunk from now on though…

  • InfiniteWisdom

    hafta remember guys like brook, rhj and booker are not catch and shoot players. a lot of “cheap” assists come from passing to those types of players. just ask kemba where his assists come from… also this game didnt have a lot of pnr so drive and kick or drive and dump assists didnt happen. we’ll see what happens on sat vs the no defense knicks… i expect a lot of layups for everyone lol…

    Why focus on assist? Assists are nothing if the PG can score! Just look at how insignificant Rondo is and what made Steph Curry so popular! Lin is no longer worried about purposely creating assist and over passing. If it’s open just shoot it which is what we’re finally seeing.

    I’m surprised by Kenny’s concern about Lin’s low assist…I would think he’d accept the low assist total as the instrument of the motion offense that forces Lin to give up the ball early in the shot-clock for the sick of ball-movement.

    Looks like Kenny feels it’s more of a Lin issue who is still caught up in last role of scoring threat off the bench.

    If kenny w ants Lin to record more assist, he should put him through high PnR.

  • Click Click

    LOL

  • psalm234

    Lin said it best “Just a motion offense with a lot of ball-movement.
    Can’t just do PnR but add a variety of staggers, pin-downs and catch-and-shoot.”

    Obviously, we’re going to see different offense that worked from game to game.
    It might be 21pts/1ast in 1 game but 11pts/8asts the next game

    Once the Nets master the variety of offense, defense would have a hard time adjusting to what the Nets will do.

    “It’s going to be a variety, since we have a variety of players. We have one of the best — if not the best — back-to-the-basket players in the NBA. So you can’t just stay in pick-and-roll,’’ said Lin. “Obviously I know how to play in the pick-and-roll, but we can’t only go back-to-the-basket. And we have shooters, so we can’t only go [post up]. We have to put in staggers, pin-downs and catch-and-shoot situations, too.

    “We have to do a lot of it. Unless you have a superstar who’s going to score 35 a night, the variety makes it dynamic. … That’s what the offense is for: To get everybody involved, a lot of ball movement, want everybody to touch the ball and just get a feel for it. Just a motion offense with a lot of ball movement.

    My 1 cent is that he didn’t force anything. It was all in the flow of the game, which is why it looked so effortless today. He initiated the offense, the team created the shots. After watching this game, it reminds me what has been missing for the past few months, lol.

    “It’s [due to] his role last year. He was in a scoring role. He came off the bench and he was looking to attack every time. That’s where we are right now, trying to get him back into point-guard mode, instead of thinking score, score, score,’’ said coach Kenny Atkinson. “That’s something we’re working on, it’s something we’re talking to him about, and we definitely want to see that assist rate go up.”

    I don’t think Kenny is concerned with Lin’s low assists. This was said before the game. Kenny wants a nice balance between scoring and assists.

    Lin will do whatever it takes to win the game. Whether that’s scoring, passing, and/or defense, he will do it all. Lin knows his role on the team, don’t worry.

  • John Focker

    Seeing Jeremy’s smile (while grabbing Brook Lopez) with 0:14 in the 4th gave me chills and goosebumps. It’s been too long, folks. And I’m not even the emotional type.

  • John Focker

    Surely the ESPN won’t show THIS.

  • DX

    If Lin keeps his 3 pts well, the defender must follow him to long range. Then the inside lane will be open up, Lin can attack the rim easily. Man, that’s so unbeatable.

    I have reservation and little concern what Atkinson said tonight. Here’s the excert: http://nypost.com/2016/10/06/nets-want-to-see-jeremy-lin-improve-in-this-key-category/ “It’s [due to] his role last year. He was in a scoring role. He came off the bench and he was looking to attack every time.

    **Lin can make assists when he has the freedom and autonomy to make plays, when the spacing are right, and when guys shoot confidently. Lin said it that there was not a lot of PnRs tonight. He took what defense gave, and the opponents gave him lots of open 3s. Lin gave them the assists and w/ his points, the Nets won… What do you think guys/gals?

  • John Focker

    Yeah, it takes years (four to be precise) of practice and discipline! 😉

  • KHuang

    I think Lin needs to play Lin’s game:

    focus on WIN WIN WIN.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Nine Piston players recorded more than 20 minutes in this game with their starters range from 24 to 26 minutes. The Pistons want to win this game and put effort in there but the Nets pulled it off with a big 4th quarter with players at borderline making the team.

    The starters of the Nets played between 17 to 21 minutes with the exception of Brook Lopez who played only 12 minutes. It must be a no sweat effort from the Nets.

  • John Focker

    Lin took mostly uncontested threes, so in essence whatever the defense gave him. I wouldn’t worry too much about it, as every team/game is different.

  • InfiniteWisdom

    dying to see bogs in the starting lineup.
    1.) is his d really that bad? or was it just bad team d in the past?
    2.) can never have enough floor spacing (foye can shoot too, but bogs deserves to start)
    3.) olympic confidence, will it carry over?

  • John Focker

    They still need more games to mesh, but I already like what I see and BB’s not even back yet.

  • KHuang

    It’s just bad team D in the past.

    He’ll compete hard defensively and not get roasted as badly as RHJ did this game.

  • Steppen03

    Add 2 more pts from missed layup. End game: JL7 will get his AND The NETS will get WIN….
    Don’t think I’ll be able to go sleep without thinking about This Team.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    I thought that was a statement made after the game

    And if Kenny wants Lin to stack up assist, he should let handle the ball more.

  • heart

    Exactly! Winning is the focus regardless. Does this show Atkinson has a rookie coaching mentality? I’m concerned that Lin would take his words literally. God forbid! Lin seems to know so much more. I listened to his post game podcast and he described what happened tonight. Then I read Atkinson’s statement, it’s deflated my enthusiasm. Atkinson wants Lin to focus on assisting instead of ‘scoring’ which is equated to ‘winning’… Very concerning…

  • InfiniteWisdom

    he’s just saying what we all said: lin was mainly sg last year. kenny wants the ball in his hands more as pg to run the team and make the decisions. motion offense means a lot of ball movement, but the key is whether or not the ball comes back to lin. last year was a solid no. he was a floor spacing sg/sf. tonight? YES! and because he was open, he shot it. he may not be as open in the future. in that case, pnr is his bread and butter.

  • CJSHYY

    I know Pistons wanted to win this one bc they didn’t want to loss to Nets… you know the bottom team in NBA even it’s preseason game.

  • Vincent

    lin easily could have had 3-4 more assists if his teammates made some of the shots. the rhj dunk was a gimme that was missed. Also like many have mentioned lin didnt get to play much pnr with either booker or lopez. In addition, Lin only played 17 minutes where the ball was constantly moving so thats not really fair to say why didn’t lin rack up more assists. Lin’s style will generate assists and MANY hockey assists. its his penetration into the paint as a PG that will allow the defense to collapse and the ball to move. SO he MAY not be credited with the assist, but he is the reason why the team is able to get WIDE open shots. That is the role of a true PG

  • KHuang

    Lin will do whatever it takes to WIN.

    That will never change, whether his coach approves or not.

    I was worried that coach Kenny was going to play Lin and other starters too much tonight because of what he said about wanting to treat this game super serious. But he eneded up only playing Brook for 12 minutes and Lin for 17. Don’t read too much into what Kenny says to reporters.

    Rose might not play. Jennings is probably still bitter and jealous about Lin being ranked over him this summer, so he might want to defend Lin and play him hard and physical. Lee might be put on Lin if he’s lighting on fire again. Who knows, we’ll see.

  • Steppen03

    He cannot disappoint us. He’s the leader and He will lead this Team to great things. Believe It! I ALWAYS Thought JL7 is Equal to SC30 (3 seasons ago).

    So you want all Lin fans to BE SAD over ONE missed shot.

    You really must be a LIN HATER.

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    So many JLin fans. He’s the man over there. It was a good night to be his fan. I tried video blogging and interviewed a couple of fans. I even have a video of Lin coming out of the tunnel but then i started screaming his name unconsciously so the video came out funny.

  • KHuang

    Agree!

    Brandon Jennings is gonna do what the playoff Miami Heat with their athletic swingmen couldn’t do against Lin: handcuff Lin off the ball with multiple guys and prevent Lin from exploding to open spots to catch the ball?

    And Courtney Lee whose defensive reputation is fake and overblown, he’s gonna try to stop Lin’s cuts and shots?

    That’ll be the day!!!

  • psalm234

    haha .. I don’t blame you
    I am curious to see what the Nets fans are thinking after a pretty-good display of teamball tonight

  • InfiniteWisdom

    even though they didnt have the super overrated reggie, they still had drummond, KCP, harris, morris, johnson, baynes, leuer, and SVG as coach. this was no scrub team. in the minutes the pistons starters played, the nets starters AND bench kept it close and in the 3rd busted it wide open. this was a QUALITY win. haters can say “it’s only preseason” all they want but i know better.

  • Steppen03

    It’s not the right thing to do. Double standards…. Someone has to be accountable for the negativity. I’m NOT mad if they just keep “Quiet” but to actually go out and make fun of someone… On other outlet like Shaq’s is alright by me because that’s what it is.

    The main thing that Nets fans think is “Finally we have a team that doesn’t continuously make bad plays”.

    Not discussed enough yet .. Lin spoke up eloquently on the locked arms of the Nets team during the national anthem to show “solidarity”. Great move to show unity than divisive actions.

    Lin is classy and intelligent as usual. Great leadership!

    “That’s something that I’ve spent a lot of hours thinking and talking with different people. To me, it shows that we can acknowledge there’s an issue at hand, but now you go about that is really what we tried to do; arms around each other, solidarity. We’re doing it together. This isn’t anti-cops, this country needs cops. This isn’t anti-minorities, this country needs minorities. This is what makes our nation great. We need more of both and we need compassion, more sympathy where guys can take the time and really put themselves in somebody else’s shoes.”

  • psalm234

    Great article praising Lin’s court vision to make smart passes not necessarily shown in the assist column.
    Brook also pointed out his teammates thrived off Lin’s being a constant threat and it will only get better.

    [NYSportsDay] “Jeremy Lin Points Kenny Atkinson’s Nets In Right Direction In Preseason Debut “
    https://www.nysportsday.com/2016/10/07/jeremy-lin-points-kenny-atkinsons-nets-in-right-direction-in-preseason-debut/

    Lin finished with 21 points, three rebounds, and one assist in 17 minutes of action, he drained five of eight from behind the three-point line.

    When Lin wasn’t making three’s he was either getting into the paint or making the extra pass to help set up a high-percentage shots for his teammates. It may not have shown in the assist column, however Lin did a solid job of not just making the extra pass but making the smart pass. This is just as important a skill for a point guard to possess, having excellent court vision.

    “I’m sure you guys saw, he just opens so much just by attacking and penetrating and continuing to be a threat for everyone else and we all really thrived off that,” said center Brook Lopez after the game. “I think it’s just going to get better from here.”

    Well, I warned NetsDaily a while ago, like a few months back. Not sure if they still remember.

    Back then, the Lin haters / trolls tried infiltrating NetsDaily and I was part of a small crew that called them out. We got bashed by both the trolls / haters and ND regulars, but Net Income eventually saw through the trolls and banned 2 of them.

    From then on, ND has been relatively quiet and calm in regards to the Lin hate / trolling. They will definitely be back though, with multiple alt accounts.

  • 1mtoldman

    it wasn’t just brook. as far as i know no one but myself either here or on netsdaily has mentioned it so i am loathe to do so now but the nets front court was absolutely destroyed by pistons; drummond got 21 rebounds! no one else in a pre season game so far as got more than 13.

    and drummond/harris/(who’s the third front court player for pistons?….one of the morris twins) put up all at least 15 points apiece i think; early when the nets were behind it was something like 21-6 pistons front court scoring versus nets.

    jon leur also was able to score easily; at least when scola/hamilton came in they scored some themselves, something (at least early and basically for most of their time on the floor) the nets front court starters in comparison to the pistons did not do.

    it was remindful of the situation in charlotte where the hornets front court weakness was obvious and mitigating the success of the hornets backcourt (batum always functioned as a backcourt player even when he may have been at times nominally a 3).

    having bogdanovic available would shuttle the responsiblities some but the four previously mentioned pistons players (good players, good scorers) put up big numbers fairly comfortably; and against a team with some backcourt offense (without jackson the pistons had none) the nets would be in trouble.

    need much better defense from the frontcourt.

  • 1mtoldman

    Here is the tail-end of Jeremy’s comments about the show of team solidarity last night …

    It’s about solidarity – and it’s not lip-service, too. We, as a team, I, as a person, we, as an organization, we want to be able to do things in the community, going forward, to be able to promote the same message. If I were to just sit there before the anthem and do that – I mean anyone can do that and it can be fake and superficial. But we want to be able to do something more and be more proactive about … and which we’re talking about internally.

    About NetsDaily, I was a regular on that site from day one, 8 years. Even 1 year before they moved to SBNation, when they were a regular Nets fan forum. Over time, I witnessed every regular poster there not mods eventually getting banned. NetIncome does what he does, he won’t really care if you’re a Lin fan or Lin fan troll. He has his set political views, and not so much tolerance. Just know that sometimes he’ll arbitrarily ban a bunch of people. Nets team have huge roster turnovers, and ND has huge fan posters turnovers. ND has okay articles, but the discussion there is not worth reading… similarly to ESPN.. not as bad.

    Thanks for coordinating the group purchases and giving out free tickets to the game last night. Wish I could’ve gone, but it’s too much of a hassle for me to drive into, out of, and find parking at Barclays. I will be at the home opener and also the home game vs. Knicks in Feb.

    Don’t rush your vlog release. Glad to hear you and your family had a great time meeting and watching Lin.

    To our fan standards, tiger fans ‘-), not perfect. In the beginning, the flow was not that smooth, and the defense looked lost for everyone. But eventually they came around. Atkinson did a good job coaching IMO.

    Jeremy Lin’s near-perfect Nets debut and the no-big-deal airballed layup

  • takeme2cruz

    Love Netsdaily. Lin finally has a major voice to defend him other than his fans.

  • Acbc

    It’s not bad IMO to be “unhappy” just because you won. When I coached, I always taught that process is far more important than results. Last night’s game is a perfect example of process. Neither team played their starters or “best players” 40 minutes. They were working on the process. A bad coach like Clifford or Mchale would worry about losing just one preseason game but process coaching means building towards being better. That means his mind is already on what needs to be done TO BE BETTER.

    My best and most talented student failed in that area and never manage to advance past 3rd tier pro tournaments. He hated practice and would complain to me that he wants to play games. The problem with that “game” self testing is that you could be playing really badly and still win if your opponents are playing worst than you. If you care too much about winning and not enough about the process, you will never get better.

    The hardest player you’ll ever face is yourself. A process player is constantly focused on beating yourself each and everyday. To be better than who you were yesterday, you must never be satisfied with wins and losses.

    This why Lin doesn’t care about TOs. He cares about making others better. To do that he’ll sacrifice his own stats to teach players better off ball movements.

    When Atkinson talks about how Lin must temper his score first mentality, he’s putting Lin on that process and challenging him to be a complete PG. it’s something he hasn’t done much since 2012.

    Atkinson’s probably mad at HIMSELF because he just learned the hard way that a lot of what he thought worked great in practices does not translate to actual games (just like Linstructor said).

    Or maybe Atkinson realizes the win (or loss) doesn’t count. He knows there’s a lot the Nets did wrong and a lot to improve upon.

    I doubt he was mad at anyone, including himself.

    Rockets have a huge Asian fan base from Yao’s legacy. Lin is actually good, and CF didn’t treat him so well. Dave “Clutch”, literally blamed Lin fans for spreading rumors about Harden partying at clubs the night before a playoff game.

    Thank you, Click!
    In this clip, Lin made a point to emphasize three (3) times of being back in the leadership position. He also shrewdly let the world know that his natural leadership ability has been involuntarily buried by former teams (Houston, Lakers & Hornets). I’m glad Lin is being vocal and direct in talking about his own strengths and ability. In doing so, he’s shaping his own narrative and image in the media. Good for him!
    Lin: “Being back in that (leadership) position is what I’ve been my whole life as a starting point guard, as a leader, someone who brings… whose job is to bring the best out of everybody else….to be back in this position… it feels natural; it feels like what I’m used.. That’s part of my strengths as a person or player is to lead and so I’m loving it, and… I’m just thankful to be back in this position again.”

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    I’ve driven to Barclay at least about 5 times and each time I parked on the street. We try to get there at least 30-45 minutes before the game and park around 5 blocks away. The center is surrounded by residential areas. And if you are there after 700PM then you can park in the meter 1 hour spots since the regulations for those spots apply on until 700PM usually. I don’t know much about paid parking places near the center but I am sure there are plenty. Click is right in that the mass transportation is amazing at Barclay. You can take the LIRR to Penn, then take any one of the subway lines that feed you directly to Barclay. That might be much faster than you driving through Queens and Brooklyn around rush hour.

    I agree, but i think a lot of it is on atkinson to get lin involved in the pick and roll. that is where he really thrives and will rack up the most assists.

  • MKL

    Rockets were a special kind of bad, HOU media was bashing Lin while he was still on the team. They were forcing fans to choose loyalty to HOU. NetsDaily is more pragmatic, but I suggest wait and see how things turn out. Because at first I thought Lakers media were fair… until the Ronnie Price/Byron Scott fiasco.

  • norah mackenzie

    but why single lin out that he still has an active lin thread ? – there were other players too – but the language used abt lin is just hateful

  • norah mackenzie

    the press always blames lin for everything no matter which team he plays for

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    No, it was all so fast, and I was video-recording but then started screaming Jeremy’s name when he finally came through the tunnel that I didn’t have the wherewithal to even plan a selfie. But my husband did manage to keep his cool and take the photo posted above. Someone did ask for a photo and Jeremy responded that he had to go to a meeting. Jeremy was really down to earth and friendly. Just a regular Joe.

  • takeme2cruz

    Kid must have watched a lot of games with dad and uncle.

  • MKL

    That was the Culture at CF, they would typically pick 1 player that was to blame for their problems. I mean McHale was doing it too during post game interviews. Harden’s flaws became Lin’s flaws, etc.

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    Joyce, it was unexpected and surreal. I’ve been watching JLin since his college days and had so many near misses. This opportunity just happened out of nowhere. He was the player of the game so he stayed on court until all the other players had come through the tunnel. I was all ready with my vlog camera. But then when I saw him coming through the tunnel I started screaming his name and my camera was shaking all over the place. I had three of my kids and they stuck our their hands and Lin came over and gave them all high fives. A very humble guy. I was so proud to be his fan last night.

  • Click Click

    Yup, Lin spoke out all summer in his own sly way, on the mistreatment he’s received from previous teams and coaches.

    Of course he doesn’t name names and he says it in a way that doesn’t offend people, but us fans know exactly what he means when he says that he’s always been a leader and that his role on teams prior to the Nets have not utilized him as a primary or secondary option.

    It’s so refreshing to see Lin finally be unleashed and unshackled. Also great to see him finally have the opportunity and ability to say what he’s wanted to say, what his fans have been saying, for the past 4+ years.

  • MKL

    I remember NBAcom player boxscore being clickable and the video would play for that specific score/assist, etc. Not sure if that will help you, but I thought if I was to create highlight vids of Lin, that’s how I would organize it.

  • psalm234

    IMO the key difference between Lakers and Nets is the franchise support. The media and bloggers will only follow the direction so they can still get access to the team.

    In the beginning, Lakers media supported Lin because Kobe wanted to “mentor” Lin to be like himself but once he fell out of favor with Kobe, Lin was in a bad place. With the Nets, the GM, coach, CEO, owner and star player like Brook are behind Lin so far, so Lin would have a higher chance of success.

    But yes, it’s good to take the wait-and-see approach.

  • Click Click

    From what I’ve seen, read, and heard the past 4+ months, NetsDaily / Net Income treat their previous players well and remember them fondly if they give their full effort. They also treat them extremely bad if they give up on the team or play like crap for them.

    Example: Kevin Garnett only played in 92 games for the Nets, but ND wrote an article about him when he retired:

    http://www.netsdaily.com/2016/9/23/13037882/kevin-garnett-retires-after-21-seasons-nba-timberwolves-hall-of-fame

    They still revere Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin, and the other NJ Nets players that played hard and well for them many years ago.

    However, they hate on Deron Williams because he didn’t deliver on his promises and practically gave up on the team…

    http://www.netsdaily.com/2016/2/23/11101838/five-years-on-the-deron-williams-trade-still-haunts-the-nets

    I’m sure ND / NI and Nets fans will love Lin because he gives it his all, never quits, always wants to win, and is a natural born leader. Lin will also turn around this franchise and help build a new, winning culture with his teammates, coach Kenny, Sean Marks, and their new staff.

  • HVJoy

    I know, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. It’s not how you start (especially in preseason), but how you finish.

    But I’m way too excited for Lin to finally be unleashed in New York again. It’s been a long, long wait for us all.

  • Click Click

    These highlight makers have access to the entire game, usually from the original broadcast / stream. They don’t merely piece together clips that NBA.com made for them. I just don’t know how they can pump them out so fast, simultaneously, from multiple games.

  • MKL

    Agreed, Team/owner support makes a HUGE difference. At the moment, the Nets media and Lin fans narrative both resonate. It’s Media like ESPN, by forecasting Nets to have the worst NBA record, being the counter-narrative.

    And then we had the extreme, CF and their divisive “Lin only fan” narrative.

  • takeme2cruz

    Exactly, as soon as they decided to tank and put the rookie Clarkson to start, they started to bash Lin especially by Dave Miller.

  • MKL

    Lin fans got slammed hard when they called out Lakers for tanking the season. Brings back some terrible memories…

  • takeme2cruz

    Yes it’s bad memories.

  • Click Click

    Lin fans usually tell the truth. The hard, ugly truth that Lin’s previous teams’ fanbase doesn’t want to hear or acknowledge. So they lash out against us, troll us, follow us to other teams’ message boards / forums, instead of facing reality.

    This is why I didn’t bother to get involved with message boards and forums defending Lin during his Rockets and Lakers years. It was just too toxic of an environment and a losing battle against those rabid, unfair, and disgusting fanbases, along with the biased media they’ve brainwashed by. Just wasn’t worth my energy or time.

    When I spoke out on the Hornets subreddit, they hated me for calling out Clifford, Kemba, and Batum for losing in the playoffs. They despised me for saying that the main reason the Hornets even made the playoffs or that they won 3 straight games against the Heat was because of Lin.

    Having said that, there are definitely some bad apples among Lin fans. Some can be extreme and very annoying with their delusional fandom. However, every fanbase has these type of people, but we get singled out and bashed, just like Lin. It’s a double standard. Lin fan haters criticize us for following Lin from team to team, when other star players’ fans do the same. It’s OK for those fans, but not OK for Lin fans to do the same.

  • MKL

    ND is a fun site to read. However, I’m saying that they don’t value their readers comments. Which is neither right or wrong, but that’s how they operate. I was reading Net Income before Nets Daily was a thing. Historically, they are quick to ban comments. The site structure itself is not friendly to discussion. I hope I’m not spoiling your optimism (not sarcasm), but that’s from my experience.

  • Click Click

    I’ve talked about Net Income plenty of times before. He is an extreme liberal NBC News / MSNBC ideologue. He deleted most of my posts where I exposed his liberal ideology in a Jeremy Lin article / thread last week where Lin said he wants to “protest” with his teammates. The thread was filled with liberal posters like most forums and message boards are, but their comments weren’t touched. I provided ample evidence and proof, just like I do here from time to time regarding politics, but it’s always my posts that get deleted.

    I’ve been threatened to be banned by NI before because I dared question the validity of his boy Mike Mazzeo in regards to Lin’s jump shot stats. I was wrong in accusing Mazzeo of making up the stat in his article, but Mazzeo didn’t provide a link to his source of the stat until I asked him about it on Twitter. Even though NI threatened to ban me, he didn’t.

    I think NetsDaily / NI has eased up on their nonchalant banning. I’ve seen quite a few obvious trolls and haters not get banned. Even long-time ND posters and outspoken critics of NI haven’t been banned so far. He did ban a Lin hater / troll that I called out though.

    Point is, while NetsDaily and NI are far from unbiased or agenda-free, they’ve been very fair to Lin and Lin fans thus far. Will it last? Who knows. Only time will tell.

    Both teams played poor, porous perimeter defense last night. Nets was probably even worse than the Pistons guarding the 3-point line. They’re lucky Pistons didn’t sink those shots more often after the 1st quarter or Nets would’ve been blown out.

    That’s why Lin and Atkinson both said they have to improve on defense. They know they have a long way to go before they can be somewhat satisfied with their defense.

    Detroit tried to trap Lin off the ball, often with 2 defenders.

    But Detroit found out what the more athletically superior Miami guards did: that it is impossible to prevent Lin from
    cutting off the ball due to his sheer explosiveness.

    The result was that the Pistons were GREYHOUNDED by Lin all game long as defenders were literally left in the dust by Lin’s cuts.

    Haha! I think more like they tried to make Lin as the face of the Nets…. I am sure they do wish Lin is the face of the NYK not Melo… LOL

  • Click Click

    Misleading title, but Melo is obviously still jealous and bitter.

    This part of his quote is fine…

    “He is the face of their franchise – believe it or not,’’ Anthony said after Friday’s practice. “He came up, they paid him. Now the ball is in his hands. Now he’s one of the franchise players over there. I don’t know what you want me to say about that. I’m happy for him, excited for him to see how it’s going to turn out over there.’’

    But then Melo goes and says this…

    “That was five, six years ago, bro,’’ Anthony said. “I forgot about that.’’

    Which proves what we’ve all been saying: that Melo, Dolan, and Knicks organization wants everyone to forget Linsanity ever happened because of how badly they screwed Lin and the fans by not offering Lin any contract and lying about matching.

  • grover chang

    On NBA radio the question of the day was what were modern day rivalries in the NBA. I said Melo vs Lin would be a rivalry for the hearts of New York. They politely disagreed and tried not to laugh at me. I understand their feelings. But it will be a rivalry. These two will always be connected.

  • GoJLin!

    I like that especially he pointed out “When Lin wasn’t making 3, he was either getting into the paint or making the extra pass to help set up a high % shots for his teammates. It may not have shown in the assist column, however Lin did a solid job making the smart pass, this just is important a skill for a PG to posses”. Yes, our JLIN proved having such an excellent court vision! Thanks God! Go JLIN, Go!, best wishes on Saturday night’s game!

    Melo virtually did nothing spectacular in his days of NBA. Too much hype has been given to him. Giving him the max contract is the biggest mistake of the Knicks. Right now, the face of the Knicks is Kristaps Porzingis who has brought excitement to their fans; much more than Melo.
    Lin has brought excitement to fans much more than both in his days of Linsanity.
    The cross town rivalry is between the Nets and Knicks. The next game is going to make believe the rivalry. Should Melo try to uppercut Lin again, he would definitely be kicked out of the game.

    Anthony said nice things about Lin in his response to the question. But some may perceive his use of the phrase “believe it or not” as a veiled shot at Lin.

    There have been indirect suggestions over the years that some Knicks were unhappy with the attention showered on Lin during his Linsanity run in 2012.

    Yeah, there’s obvious collusion between these stars and superstars against Lin. I’m pretty sure Melo told Wade to do anything and everything in his power to stop Lin during Linsanity. The other guys, not too sure.

    The missed layup is also a way to measure Lin’s star power. The media attention Lin is getting means he is an all star caliber NBA player. Just look at how many people posted about it. They have eyes on Lin.

  • Rick James

    lin needs to come in tomorrow and not think too much of the game. He needs to think of it as another pre season game, and no real bearing on the regular season. The team is still a work in progress and he needs to experiment more than go all out and show his hand tomorrow. With that said, im still rooting for nets to beat down the knicks. EDIT: rooting for LIN to beat down the knicks tomorrow.

  • Alaingrvis

    Lin is in a much bigger media market now so I’m getting used to the fake reports and misleading headlines. remember the story about Lin deciding not to play in the playoff and hw his knee injury wasn’t that bad yet he count jump or run as fast for a haif season in his first year with the rocket. These story wil happen but honestly linsanity in new york had both. Its just what happens to stars. Like anthony said Lin is clearly the face of the nets

    indeed, staying healthy is the most important priority for Lin and the nets. Without Lin, I have a feeling the nets go straight to tanking.

  • takeme2cruz

    If Vazquez is healthy, he’s so valuable as a backup PG for the Nets. This team can go farrrrr.

  • heart

    Is this headline Control damage for Melo! It’s a very odd thing to say “believe or not” if you’re truly happy for someone you believe in or that person deserves the praise…

  • 1mtoldman

    i count about 30 known commodity (ie. rotation players, recognizable names) currently down for some length of time for some injury (the largest category “knee”). i was going to list them all but too extensive.

    25 of the 30 teams have at least one major player down. (and the season hasn’t even started yet).

    and this is not some kind of scam to rest players in the preseason as someone here suggested; in all pro sports a huge number of players are injured all the time.

    the disabled list, the injured reserve, whatever its called. is always large.

  • Dan Ang

    Remember all those motivational speeches that tells us to “be ourself, stand up for what we believe….and don’t let the haters bring you down?” Well this guy is one of those haters.

  • psalm234

    don’t do it 🙂
    BOS and TOR are too formidable and more experienced

  • Rick James

    unfortunately that is probably not true. The knicks fans have moved on from Lin…you can go to their sb page, or their realgm page and not much people really care one way or another that Lin is back in NYC. It doesn’t matter what they think though, Lin shouldn’t playing ball for anyone but himself and God.

  • takeme2cruz

    Yeah let be silence about it. Let the result speaks for itself.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What’s the purpose of PnR? Clearly for an open shot. If Lin can get open shots all night long, you wouldn’t expect to see PnR.

  • blueCypher

    Ya those teams are really good. I just don’t think Boston is this beast that the experts are touting , even with Al Horford

  • takeme2cruz

    It takes time to go back to who Lin was. Lin has been the off the bench scorer since Houston year.

  • psalm234

    yup, I watched Vasquez around 2012-13 and knew he had court-vision and great 3pt shooting.
    If he’s healthy, I predict we can see 40+ wins

  • takeme2cruz

    Don’t mind if I repeat it.

  • Alaingrvis

    wasn’t he the one hitting threes like crazy during Lins famous toronto game?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Greivis Vasquez is not the one who won the game in the 4th Qtr.
    Jorge Gutierrez did.

  • psalm234

    BOS has a great tactician in Coach Brad Stevens and they move the ball as a team so that’s why they’re good. 2-3 years playing together make them dangerous

    They just don’t have a coach on the floor like JLin lol

  • LinMadd

    ya i noticed foye was playing like a PG yesterday while Lin was shooting a lot. Not sure if thats what Atkinson had planned.

  • takeme2cruz

    To be honest, I like to see sometimes in the season, Lin moves to 2 (Kobe) and Vasquez as 1 (Fisher).

  • Dan Ang

    Also, Ido Amir is a beast!

  • Alaingrvis

    not exactly. He wasn’t happy by Lins 1 assist. Lin just didn’t have passing lanes. Also his PNR was taken away. They should have used it more though since thats Lins strength. Lin without PNR is batman without joker lol. So hopefully they work on it but it helps have foye feeding Lin open threes. bogdanovich wouldn’t be able to do that.

  • psalm234

    no, Vasquez played with New Orleans Hornets in 11-12 season that ended the 7-game Linsanity winning streak. He got 15pts/11asts in that game. He was very good and healthy back then.

    The court-vision and 3pt shooting stood out when watching him play

  • psalm234

    yes, that way defense can’t load up on Lin.

    The more versatile the Nets, the more dangerous they become.

  • psalm234

    it just seemed like they happened more recently, maybe to the well-known names.

    Health is definitely #1 priority for longevity in the NBA; that’s why Kobe said he stopped taking charges.
    I hope the Nets performance team is really good this season with their holistic well-being approach

  • Arsenium12 .

    I just hope that Kiyan, Melo’s son, shown here in 2012, still really likes Jeremy …

  • Joe what do you know

    I think it’s kind of hard to judge without actually being there and understand how and in what tone the question was being asked. A clever and cunning reporter can stage up a whole dialogue exchange just to bait the subject into saying what the reporter wanted to use for sensationalising the topic at hand. I’ve seen too many similar things through Taiwanese media. Lots of Taiwanese reporters need to have their reporting ethics checked.

    Anyway, point is, who cares what Melo has to say about Lin? Lin is on the way up and Melo is way past his peak. Just enjoy the show and the popcorn. It’ll be Lin and us fans’ year! Woohoo!!

    There’ll be different heroes for the Nets – and the bench is no less important than the starters.

  • sport

    So for those who also bet on Nets winning more than 20 games on Bovada, does the outcome become official the moment they surpass that number? Or do you have to wait until the season is over? Thanks.

  • sport

    That’s what I think as well but from preseason game it looks like Atkinson will try to make sure every starter and main bench player gets 10+ minutes. Which is great so long as the ball keeps moving and Lin gets open shots. I just hope Atkinson isn’t stubborn about the contested shots thing cause when shot clock is down those are unavoidable.

  • sport

    If Nets win Division Champ then yes Lin will definitely deserve all start team!

  • sport

    Depends whether Dolan wants the 2 time MVP Rose to lead his Knicks or Melo to lead them. Dolan only cares about “stars” and turth is Rose is 10x bigger star than Melo. I’d be so happy for Knicks fans if they can finally use Rose to get rid of Melo.

  • casual bb fan

    LOL, IMO, Indirectly a ridicule just by mentioning the ‘walk on water’ thingy equating the believers to be a ‘cult’. Haha cheers

  • sport

    Like what Lin said this is a different team and PnR doesn’t fit all their skills. They will also use different offense against different teams to keep them guessing. I assume the difference in offense style is also why Lin doesn’t hesitate to take open 3s because that’s what the coach wants. It just feels easier since Lin doesn’t have to risk so much charging at the rim and risking injury if it’s not needed. Truth be told those 3 point specialist have way longer careers due to less wear and tear at the rim. Steph Curry’s playing style will allow him to play way past 30+ years age like Ray Allen.

  • takeme2cruz

    Tough decision for Atkindson to make.

  • Alaingrvis
  • sport

    Not too worried about BOS, I’d say Nets have a chance but to surpass TOR’s number of games won will be tough for sure. TOR won for past 3 years and their least number of wins is in 2013 with 48 games. I still think Lin’s team will surprise everyone. And it’s only worth betting on Nets this year because if they do pull it off, the “odds” next year will be very low. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_Division_(NBA)#Division_champions

  • sport

    BOS doesn’t have a star to lead them, Isaiah Thomas as PG sn’t it.

  • Dorothy

    I am visiting my son for family weekend at his school which is about 2 hours from NYC. We are thinking of watching Nets vs Knicks tomorrow. Is there a good site to buy tickets? Or it does not matter ticketmaster, stubhub are all the same? Thanks.

  • sport

    Melo is a loser for choosing money over a ring. He’s so out of shape just like Harden. Knicks should seriously hope D Rose will be able to push him out as the new leader of the team.

  • takeme2cruz

    That’s like the whole game. hahaha.

  • 1mtoldman

    im no expert on where to buy tickets but can note not a lot of tickets available and none cheap for this game (unlike most preseason games).

    for example game with det stubhub was advertising 1400 tickets as low as $9 the day of the game.

    already today 24 hours before game stubhub only listing about 600 tickets with cheapest pushing up around $80 a ticket!

    so if you really want something better get crackin. before all gone and or price goes up even more.

  • sport

    Wow there goes Celtics’ chances of winning Division over TOR. Truly think it will be between Nets vs TOR. I’m seriously not high on TOR, Kyle Lowry isn’t that great of a PG.

    From the times I’ve seen him play against Lin’s team he’s always performed well. Not to mention he’s one of the rare good guys of the league. I’d take him over cocky players like Chandler Parsons. He’s a star for sure but I don’t think his team will go anywhere without another star leader that makes their teammates better.

  • Dorothy

    Thanks. That is what I am trying to do–buy the ticket asap. Can someone who is experienced tell me whether I need to compare price at different sites? Thanks.

  • blueCypher

    I imagine you have to wait until the season is over for formality . I don’t know though . It is kind of silly to wait until April knowing the team has won over 21 games

    hmm again i dont actually buy tickets myself on these sites but if no one else show up with info; just scanning the sites, not a lot of tickets left all pretty much nose bleed and numbers of tickets listed available and price on stubhub and ticketmaster not much difference. gonna run you over $80 a ticket with fees at least.

    I saw 2 tickets right behind visitor bench available which means I can reach out my hands and touch Lin, but my son is against it. He thinks it is too much money to spend just on a ball game 🙁

  • sport

    I agree it would be silly to make bettors wait the entire season when the results have already been decide. I have never bet on sports before so really don’t know the rules.

  • martan267

    Why is that? There are plenty of players that make it to the all star team but their team may not have won their division. Why for Lin he has to do that before being deserving to be an all star? As far as I’m concerned AllStar is a fan favorite vote. So, many get on the team not due to just ensuring their team makes to to the top or near top.

    Funny, I looked at it, and I wasn’t disappointed. He was taking what the defense was giving him,” Atkinson said of Lin, who had 21 points within the flow of the motion offense. “I will say, this offense … it’s not completely point-guard dominated. It’s not the Steve Nash Phoenix Suns. I coached with Mike [D’Antoni]. Mike was very, ‘Give the ball to the point guard, he’s making all the plays.’ It’s a little different. We’ll see, but that’s part of it. We have a lot of guys touching the ball.”

  • sport

    lol Yes, I was only going to use $67 with the 50% welcome bonus which makes $100 for the division bet but then I didn’t want to “lose” the $67 so added $100 more for the proposition to win over 20.5 games (gives $80 win) that way I won’t lose that $67 if Nets can’t win over Raptors.

  • Joe what do you know

    So true. 21pts, not a single point was forced. That’s the beauty of it.

  • sport

    Now it makes sense, thought Atkinson wasn’t too happy with Lin’s low assists. Now it makes sense. If they can find that “balance” Lin will be very unstoppable with more arsenal at his disposal then ever before! So glad basketball season have finally started! Life is so much more “entertaining” watching Lin finally lead his own team!

  • KL

    The fact that Lin made a 3 right after the airball layup is so typical of Lin and his mental strength. He responds after every setback. I think that kept the team rolling. He is going to be the LEADER in terms of confidence and playing with swag.

  • Win

    Haha. Yeah. Can’t wait to see the Nets beat the crap out of Knicks tomorrow. I wish Kenny Atkinson will let Lin play 25 mins so the JLin can destroy the Knicks. Just like Mike D’Antoni destroyed them the other night.

  • GoJLin!

    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson wants to see higher assist totals out of his team; even Jeremy Lin had just one. But Atkinson wasn’t vexed, just worried about installing a scheme more than inflating stats. “Funny, I looked at it, and I wasn’t disappointed. He was taking what the defense was giving him,” Atkinson said of Lin, who had 21 points within the flow of the motion offense. “I will say, this offense … it’s not completely point-guard dominated. It’s not the Steve Nash Phoenix Suns. I coached with Mike [D’Antoni]. Mike was very, ‘Give the ball to the point guard, he’s making all the plays.’ It’s a little different. We’ll see, but that’s part of it. We have a lot of guys touching the ball.”

    Sure, Lin’s assist numbers might have looked better if Sean Kilpatrick hadn’t missed all seven of his shots or Brook Lopez had played at all in the second half. But most of all, they might have looked better if the Nets had played more pick-and-roll, which clearly is Lin’s strong suit. But that will have to wait. So, don’t worry, JLIN still play within coach’s plan!

    I actually think it is a good thing if the Nets do not run too many high Pick n Rolls for Lin. Every team seems to be game planning for it. I think Lin should just run the Knicks off the floor. They are slow and injured.

  • sport

    From what I’ve seen the starters are great, but the bench are a snoozer minus Scola. Nets does have a weak bench.

    Except that Lin’s strength so it’d be unwise not to use him to the best of his abilities. They just need to figure out when to use it to catch teams of guard with the new motion offense

    During preseason, there’s no need to spend much time on PnR. Lin has already mastered it and can run PnR with anyone. Better to spend time implementing a more intricate motion offense. That’s how you beat the best teams.
