Game #17 @ Minnesota

14 comments:

  1. Jeremy Lin, the second coming of Jason Kidd, doing his thing and sitting next to the coaches as always. Does Smart still hate him?

  2. What? Why Charlie Bell again? Don't get it.

  3. Charlie Bell's getting paid 3 mil and is a vet. You gotta play him sometimes. If only to up his value a little before you trade him midseason.

    JL might not get much PT tonight. Steph and Monta are both hot and not in foul trouble. I'd guess 5-10 minutes tops for JL.

  4. I think Keith Smart needs to chill out, he needs to stop yelling at his players and just let them play a game.

  6. I don't think Lin is in the doghouse (it isn't that he "screwed up"), but yeah, he's definitely being sat after last night's schooling on the offensive end. He needs a couple days to work on his finishes, and going up inside against Love and Milicic ain't gonna help.

  7. it's human nature to analyze every microcosm, but overall Jeremy is playing very well. I thought he always sat in between coaches? Anyway, that's a good sign in my book...it means the coaches care about this education as a PG.

    Kevin Love probably isn't a threat at around 0.5 bpg (not to say that bpg tells the whole picture), but damn Darko at 2.9 bpg this season. wow.

  8. LOL Curry and Lin will always sit between the coaches when they are not in the game.. next to Stephen Silas. It's a routine with the Warriors. The coaches want the PG's to know what plays are being run under different circumstances.

  10. that's what happens when all your shot are blocked from previous game...the first one is due to bad call, but some could actually be avoided (such as the reverse layup)...

  11. Why is Jeremy Sitting on the bench separated by a coach? Is it to keep him from the rest of the players? I wonder if Jeremy's leadership skills conflicts with some of the teammates attitudes.

  12. "So they can talk to him and he can learn RT @manthedan how come every game Lin sits on the bench between smart and silas"

    -Marcus Thompson, Warriors beat writer

    The coaches are teaching him during the game so that Jeremy can be a solid backup point guard (and one day a starter).

  13. Most of the Warriors high percentage FGs are scored in transition. Either on a fast break or pushing up the ball. These plays are made on the fly, with no instructions from Coach Smart.

    Why should JLin need to wait for all his teammates, listen to the coach, call out a play ... then execute ? This uses a lot of seconds off the clock, and leads to a desperate shot.

    The coach needs to let him push the ball, maybe set a high screen n' roll in transition. That way they get easier baskets.

  14. i think the coaches don't mind that it slows the game down a little bit. when lin is in there the coaches can run their set plays through him (can't really do it with monta and curry as those guys probably won't go along). this is bad because it makes lin look like a rookie that needs instructions all the time and it gives defenders time to adjust and/or do a press. but as long as the coaches get their little fun, and lin gets to play, it's all good.
