Preseason8 CHA @ IND Game Thread
Jeremy Lin was clutch one more time in the 2nd and 4th quarter to lead the Hornets to 7-0 preseason record.
Coach Clifford show his faith in Jeremy by trusting him to play in the 2nd and 4th quarter after a slow start in the 1st quarter when Jeremy’s shots haven’t fallen and he chose to facilitate more.
This probably wouldn’t have happened in Houston or LA in the past 3 years.
It’s only preseason but both teams wanted to win last night and Hornets executed better as JLin shut down Reggie Jackson and played 1-2 tandem well with Nic Batum in the 4th.
It’s very encouraging to see the growing chemistry between them even if Kemba was not playing.
Tonight it’s a back-to-back game so Coach Clifford might want to rest his starters more but keep the same rotation.
Will Kemba play briefly? Will JLin start at SG? Who will be the starting PF, MWiliams or Zeller?
Whichever lineup Coach Clifford chooses, let’s hope the Hornets continue to grow chemistry and JLin is trusted more as a playmaker. Only good things can come out of it.
Let’s go, HairSanity!
