and he's guarding nash.
He was harassing Nash so intensely, the ref whistled him for a phantom foul -- Smart was screaming at the ref (rightly so).
Curry came in for the last few seconds -- probably a set paly. Lin might come back in for the 4th. He was bothering Nash big time...Nash got bailed out by a ref and then made a pretty shot over JL on the second chance.
nash is smart player using the pick to seal off lin to the side while he takes his time then shoots one in
wow lin...really needed to stay in front of your man.
lmfa! lin vs his hero dragic
Yeah, he went under the screen by mistake. But makes up for it with the steal -- rips it out of Dragic's hands on the run.
when they use a pick and goes straight into the lanes, our bigs must cut them off. horrible interior help
Lin was getting schooled... At least he made a nice defensive play before he got taken out....
lin got swatted on the baseline again.
i don't care how good a shooter curry is, the rest of his game is crap
Lin is rewarded for his hustle by getting yanked. All because Lee can't play D and now Curry comes in and turns it over and gives Phoenix an and-one. Let Lin play -- no one else is doing any better.
"lin got swatted on the baseline again."Yeah, though if it was Curry/Ellis, they would've gotten the foul call.
Refs don't give JL the whistle when Marc Gasol punches him in the face. You think they'll give him a call when he draws normal contact? Curry just has to miss a layup and he gets the call.This is why he has to hit some jumpers. You're a rookie. You're Asian. You ain't gettin' calls, Jeremy.
Warriors making a late run...without Curry. That's how much he "matters."
monta forgot how to shoot ft's. he doesn't get there much
Lin should play 10+ minutes...or not at all. He's always good when he's allowed to play like a normal backup PG. He always sucks when he's thrown in for 90 seconds or something.
"Yeah, though if it was Curry/Ellis, they would've gotten the foul call. "but he's not curry/ellis and it looked like a good block.
Lin did a pretty good job guarding Nash. Lin stayed in front of Nash for the most part, unless Lin was getting screened. Nash did shoot one over Lin, but Nash was giving a Heisman stiffarm for a good 3 seconds, as if Nash was defending the post. Didn't know you could do that in the NBA.Contrast that with Curry's lack of defense on Nash. Nash repeatedly dribbled around Curry as if Curry were a construction cone. Curry can usually compensate for his turnstile defense with his shooting, but when he's having an off shooting night, he really hurts the team with his lack of D.
@Real-dab no disrespect or anything, but take off your biased glasses for a sec. He did not really stay in front if Nash regardless of the screens; Nash dribbled around Lin like it was nothing...dragic also went by Lin although one of them was terrible help d. He did aslo have a nice recovery and steal right before he got taken out. And on offense, he seems really nervous and initiates the offense way too slow... Usually there's less than 11 seconds left on the shot clock before a play starts.... This doesn't help with his pt...And curry really needs to step it up and play better d or we are gonna be losing a lot of games this season
@ Anon December 3, 2010 2:47 AMI'll admit it's hard to take off my biased glasses. =) I'm not saying Lin played great D on every possession, but he did play better D than the other W guards. See my video. He did defend Nash on some possessions. He defended way better than Curry.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0ptYWvnODMOn offense, yes, the W offense doesn't flow. But that's the same for the starters. It became painfully obvious when watching the Suns movement. Sometimes I think Lin would be better off sitting behind a real PG like Nash to learn than from a team with no real PGs.
