that was a sick steal. he stole from the whole knicks team in one sequence. lol
Daryl Strawberry in the house must be feeling a bit nervous about his Legacy.
That's something he's already proven he can do over and over -- rip it away from an unsuspecting big man. For those not watching, the one TO JL made was when he dribbled nicely past heavy pressure, but then got caught in-between deciding whether to attack the basket or slow down -- which caused him to lose the handle. Still, two measly minutes and he made a difference with his defense and energy. And Smart didn't yank him for making a TO!
Hope Jeremy gets more playing time. The announcer said, ' lots of smart players on the floor, from Harvard, Stanford ...'Jeremy is the only player that made it to a 'smart' school based on academics!
warriors up big. maybe he'll get some minutes on the fourth.
Warriors let them back into it. Oh well. More minutes tomorrow -- Ellis and Curry will need the rest.Also, it seems Lin has officially passed Charlie Bell on the depth chart.
I really don't know why coach Smart takes Lin out of the game after less than 3 minutes. It wasn't like the Knicks were blowing them out with him on the floor. He more than held his own.
Warriors need to put Lin in for his D. Curry is a brilliant scorer, but he can't defend anyone. Put Lin in at the point and slide Curry over to the 2 and take Monta out (looks very tired).
Anyone got a clip of the steal?
I was in the game today. The steal was pretty sick.. Jlin has very agile hands I must say... Also, before the team introductions and when the team was lined up... Jlin head was faced up for a good amount of seconds. Not sure if he was praying.
Praying for PT!
He doesn't gamble on steals like his teammates are doing, giving up easy drives to the hoop. He stays in front of his man, and waits patiently for the right opportunity. He does not deliberately get out of position just to get a steal. I think JLin would do really well on a team that emphasizes smothering defense, not flashy moves in the lane. He would really fit in well with the Spurs or Celtics.
i need a video clip, somebody help a brother out!
JLin7 should be on a defensive minded team cause he does all the dirty work, none flashy just goes out there and hustle to the core... He reminds me of a mixture of Battier/Bruce Bowen...
Barnett mentioned Curry played 1:36 in his first game against the Knicks so Jlin is on a good development schedule for a rookie.
That was actually 2 steals in 1 play. First he took the ball away from Amare, Anthony Randolph picked it up, and then Lin took it away from Randolph for the fast break. I think he just needs to learn to be decisive, whether to drive to the basket, pull up for a shot, or pass it.
thanks for the video link, that was awesome!
