I'm very happy with the way Jeremy has played in the two games since being called back up from Reno. He looks so much better just bringing up the ball and getting the team into its offensive sets against the Suns. He is taking good care of the ball as well with just 1 turnover in 22 minutes since coming back up. He is distributing the ball nicely . I really liked his crossover, drive across the lane, then kick out to Reggie who got fouled shooting the three. His D was solid against Steve Nash and Zabian Dowdell. Also, as Coach Mussellman stated in his interview with Damon Bruce on 2/10, Jeremy gets you extra possessions. Against the Nuggets, Jeremy hustled back and defended a much bigger man, Al Harrington going to the hoop. The result was an offensive foul on Al pushing off as Jeremy contested at the rim. Against the Suns, Jeremy pressured Zabian Dowdell, taking away the inbounds to the point thus causing a 5 second violation. These are the little things that don't show up in the box score and may go unnoticed by many. By the way, check out this great Sports Illustrated article on Zabian Dowdell, another D League call up.
I'm sure we'll keep hearing the whining about his shot. Just like we heard the whining about crowds cheering, his free throws, and everything else. I'm not too worried about that right now. We'll see what his percentages are once he gets more playing time.
JLin could be getting minutes again vs OKC, especially if the game gets out of hand early, which is very likely.
