Game #1 Stats:
Jeremy Lin's first game in the D League was a mixed bag. In the first half he looked pretty good offensively taking it to the basket and finishing. He also had a nice wrap around pass to a big man under the basket. In the second half, he looked like he was forcing things a bit, over penetrating and not taking the open jumper.
I think it will take a game or two for him to get things going but I actually like Coach Musselman and the players on this team. Patrick Ewing Jr., D.J. Strawberry, and Aaron Miles are all guys who are marginal NBA players who are trying to get called up as well. JLin can also learn a lot from Miles on how he attacks the defense quickly but usually under control.
What I'd like to see as we've said many times before is JLin taking the open jumper. Also, make better decisions with the ball in terms of taking it to the hole, pulling up for the mid range jumper.
