With the back to back and with the way the Warriors are playing, I'm confident JLin will get significant PT these next few games.
Also, besides JLin's amazing per 48min stats in blocks and steals, another incredible stat is his plus/minus. He actually has a positive plus/minus on a team with -3.12 per game. His .015 +/-/min is third best on the team. I'm sure that people will say, but you can't say this or that because of the sample size and because its during garbage time. Stats are stats, you can't make them up. First, when I posted his college stats, I heard that it doesn't translate to the NBA because he was playing in the Ivy League. Then, I hear that his D League stats are irrelevant because it's not the NBA. Now, he has some amazing stats in limited minutes and I still hear whining about how it's not relevant. The main issue for JLin is he needs a coach who knows how to utilize his bench with some decent rotations.
If I were coaching this team, here is what I would do with the rotations. Bring in Udoh and Lin, your best defenders, with 3-4 minutes to go in the first. This way, you get an early rest for Monta or Curry as well as take out Biedrins. There is enough fire power that you are not expecting Lin to do more than play solid D and bring up the ball. You still have three scorers on the floor but now you have the guys to do the dirty work especially defensively. At the end of the first you bring in Lou and Reggie. Now, if you're struggling offensively, you can bring Monta or Curry, whomever was out first, back in sooner. This is just a normal rotation that almost all NBA teams use. There are hardly any teams that play their starters straight through the first and into the second like the Warriors. This just does not make sense. Actually, right before the All-Star break, when the Warriors were playing some D and their best ball, it seemed like Smart was starting to trust the bench. However, after the AS break he seems to have reverted back. The Warriors announcer, Bob Fitzgerald, keeps saying how much the bench sucks. However, if you look at the +- or just watch when they are given early minutes, the bench performs fairly well. They may not look as pretty, however, they get you loose balls, steals, and blocks (basically extra possessions) and play decent D compared to the starters.
If the Warriors have any hope to salvage this road trip and this season, it will have to come from their Coach, trusting and using their bench in a smart and wise manner.
