im sure you all would be happy with
lin getting 28 n 12 every night with 0 turnovers
Look, for everyone bashing amare, last game he put up 22 shots. we lost.
this game he put up 10 shots and made 4. Amare can turn it on when he needs to. I agree, not one of his best games, buy gee, give the man at least a week before you come with stupid ass trade ideas
and no one can guard dirk.....all you can do is put a hand up and hope. he's frickin dirk nowitski....i am not ganna hate on stat for dirk scoring buckets....dirk can shoot with his eyes closed
Lin will probably be turn over prone
But remember, he played at Harvard in college.. And this is only his 9th start, he probably isn't used to all these different defensive coverages.. Im sure he will adapt to bring them down over time but he will be fine imo
What a freaking win though. Lin is so clutch.. SO CLUTCH.
Interesting to see how Antoni fits this all together. Novak should lose minutes when Melo gets back. Also, Fields will have to play some SF to make room for JR and Shump. I know Shump is just a rookie but he's the best on ball defender and you cannot overlook that. Of course this is all dependent on how effective Baron will be at pg.
Will Antoni be willing to play 10 guys? We are 2 deep at every position so you would think so but you know how our coach is.
douglas/jordan/walker/bibby will see basically no time off the bench. novak played his way into the rotation
we have to play a 11 man rotation unless novak's mins get cut as well
JR Swish is a welcome addition to this squad, i'm glad he knocked some 3's down
before he missed a few. but he ended strong and is major part of this great win.
IMHO, David Lee >>> STAT
JerLin continues to be #1 PG in league, damn dude racked up 61.5 fantasy points
(damn you Musketeer!), anytime you get 14 assists along with 28 points, and play 40+ minutes,
i'll take 7 turnovers. it's still a great dime/TO ratio! the whole league is aware of el Lin now,
and he will continue to be double-teamed, and will continue to recognize the defense
and adjust his game, because the man has smarts!
huge props to Kojak and Chandler (hope his wrist is OK).
This team looks great! bring on the Miami cHeat!
This looks like a championship team to me now. And this is hell of a game! I think MDA should play Lin less in the future. Don't get me wrong, I'm crazy for this guy. Just don't want him to get injured.
With that said, it was his first night facing Dallas and that sort of trapping defense so in theory he could possibly keep improving. Still can't believe he's this good. Knicks look to be unbelievably lucky picking him up.
