Jeremy Lin recorded his 3rd DNP in a row @ New Jersey while the Nets beat the Warriors 94-90. With this team virtually out of the playoffs at 28-36, when will they start playing Jeremy? This team desperately needs defense and rebounding, why is he at the end of the bench? Lets look at the stats:

Yes, Law, age 26, is a better ball handler, quicker with the ball, and a lottery pick (11th overall in 2007).

We will see if Lacob steps in and forces Smart to play JLin, ala Udoh. This must be coming soon. I believe. I hope.
