The win over Springfield on Wednesday was Jeremy's best game statistically this year. However, it was against a very porous defense and just a bad team. The exciting part is since being sent to Reno for his second stint (11 games so far), JLin has been putting up some very impressive numbers:
40% 3p fg
2.04 Assist/TO ratio
2.9 Steals per game
I would like to see Jeremy back up with the Warriors sometime in March. This stay has really helped with his confidence, with adjusting to the speed of the pro game, and with working on point guard play. His play in the D League has been like another season in college, but instead of Ivy League competition, he's had top college level to marginal pro level competition. He's looked better playing against this competition than he did playing in the Ivy League. I just really hope that the Warriors will give him a chance to play some minutes once they are out of the playoff race. If you think he can be a player in the NBA, you gotta give him the minutes to find out. Has anyone seen Gordon Hayward from Utah play? He looks less ready than JLin but has even started a few games. They like his potential and think he can really develop so they throw him in from time to time. JLin can spend the whole off season working on free throws, ball handling, shooting, and hitting the weight room. So, let's not worry that he is not completely ready yet.
