Well fellas this is probably his last game to show what he got for the knicks all the decision will be maid from this game. I hope he will come out hot and shows that he does belong in the NBA. If not he will be cut from the team. Comon Lin show us all that u belong in the NBA. Go ou there and do it all eyes are on you tonight!!!!!!!!!!!
exactly as you wished...... :)
For those waiting for the Knicks - Nets game to start, may I suggest rewatching some of Jeremy's 1/20 triple double with the Erie Bayhawks in D-League Futurecast archives (http://www.nba.com/dleague/erie/index_main.html)?Yeah, he put up gaudy numbers in the first quarter, but it was the third quarter and last few minutes of the fourth quarter where Lin showed his value, especially at the NBA level (running second unit if D'Antoni can put pieces complementary to Lin in with him).Maine Red Claws made multiple pushes in third quarter, but Lin led Bayhawks kept just standing there, willing to take the punch, and then counterpunch. Red Claws finally broke when they started chucking threes at beginning of the fourth.I think Tony Douglas is now gun-shy (start this YouTube video clip around 50 second mark: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6TPkPovUw0&feature=related) and is unwilling to take the punch (drive into paint) to open up his teammates with dribble drive.Lin and DJ Kennedy also looked really good as a backcourt combo (just like Lin looked really good with Danny Greene when he was with Big Horns).
F this website. My posts keep getting deleted. find me on facebook.Good luck to Jeremy.
yea I know. I made a good point once & da author deleted it. y? I have no idea why. its the internet, u gotta expect people to say how they feel but the author seems to delete all the posts that he disagrees with. He'll probably delete this one 2. LMAO.
You guys are deleting your own comments. You are the author! Only comments that get deleted are for inappropriate language. Chill.
time to make it happen Lin lets go!!!
i think it deletes posts containing certain words.anyways lin is in!!my internet is crap though can we have a play by play? lol
JL tearing it up so far. He played some great defense on Deron Williams (you read that right). And once Melo left the game, he started running the offense. Layup, steal, fastbreak assist, bounce-pass for a dunk. Keep it up, Jeremy! This is your biggest "spotlight" game yet.

JLin seems to give everyone's game a shot in the arm when he entered the game, except Melo. It will be important for him to develop some chemistry with the #1 option on the team going forward....But DAYUM what a great half!!! Let's go grab the lead now!
Lin is suffocating Deron Williams. No joke. D-Will can't get any separation for a clean shot or a clean pass.
JL is playing fantastic. The only not-perfect thing he's done is miss two jumpers (but they looked good for what it's worth). But his passing and surreal defense more than make up for it.
When lin came in for Shumpert, Deron Williams didn't score another basket...amazing D!
Jeremy lin is doing work!
Anyone notice how sick Deron Williams played against Shump? Then when Jeremy came in, he was ice cold.
Jlin is playing awesome so far. Just need to get his jumper to fall. He got the Knicks back to within 2 at half.
WOW!!!! first half - 15 minutes,4 rebounds, 6pts, 5 dimes, +5 - I'll take that every nite - way to go HAAAVard! DEFENSE up Williams and pick and rolling the Nets to death...YeeHAAA!!!
3 rebounds* 4 assists* +4* Can you read? Haha LOL
Does anyone have a stream for the game? Gotta keep a close eye on my boy J-Lin! Can't just sit here and watch the play by play on NBA TV Companion! Anyone have one? (I've tried myp2p and atdhe but not working for me)Also, this is pretty funny, J-Lin has just as many points as Amare, with 3 times as many rebounds, more steals and more assists, less fouls, less turnovers and better field goal percentage. LOL <--- This is all true but I'm just messing around haha
Yeah Lin wahoooooo!!!!!!! Great D ....william can not get a shot off Lin... Now the team just need some buckets...cannot wait for second half....he is on the highlight rail now......lest go and get this win!!!!!!!!!
Why do my posts keep getting deleted?
because you are hitting the delete button on your own comment.
lol i just turned on the game and the first thing I heard was, "Welcome back to the Jeremy Lin Show, oh I meant Halftime Report Show". and "Another sweet pass by Jeremy Lin. And he's not done yet. Jeremy Lin.." He is doing amazing tonight!! I guarantee you he just secured himself backup point guard position after this performance. Prove them wrong Lin, let DAtonio play you in the second half and if Knicks win you will have just jumped past Shumpert and TD as PG!!
If the Knicks can eat Bibby's contract - Lin can get 15 minutes per nite easy!
Lin = Sick plays.
AClin = Sick comments.
Tonight is the Asian American Super Bowl!The John Wall game was the BCS championship.
OMG, 3 wide open shots and you can't nail it in Lin. I take back what I just said about starting point guard, if you can't shoot outside the perimeter that's going to be an issue. I think Carmelo is just shaking his head after all those wide open misses.
HE NEEDS TO HIT HIS JUMPERS!!!!fk making me die over here...
JL still making great passes and playing superb defense. But he simply can't hit those wide-open jumpers! Missed four of them so far. But that's okay. The shots look good out of his hand, he just needs to keep taking them until they fall.
He's making up for the missed 3s with his two and-ones (two converted). Seriously, JL could be a decent jumper away from starting.
ANyone notice how everyone keeps falling down when jeremy is in>?
Crowd is shouting Jeremy! ...and I thought people were saying he didn't have a feel for the NBA game.
JEREMY! JEREMY! JERERMY! - Chants in Madison Sqaure Garden
Easy guys. Before you write him off/in as a starter, take a deep breath and remember that this is Lin's third real NBA game and his first test against an All Star pg in Deron Williams. Plus, Lin is the only player on the court who might not even be IN the NBA in one week!Just be thankful that D'Antoni put Lin out there. Deron Williams is a tough matchup for anybody, let alone Lin who has barely played the NBA sum of a single game this season.The most important thing is that Lin helped bring his team back in the first half. All NBA teams make adjustments in the 2nd half, so let's see what happens. Lin has already had a.solid game thus far.
watching JLin is like watching a boxing match, any second someone's going down. If it was shumpert and TG in, they would've been down 15 points already and the crowd would've given up. JLin keeps you believing and you see he REALLY tries hard. I would say besides his shots tonight, this is by far his best game in the NBA ever.
this is an amazing night for jeremy! I think the shots will eventually fall, but what's important is his hustling and tenacity to go to the hoop.
If the Knicks cut Lin due to the politics of bad contracts to washed up players - I'm sure he'll find a home elsewhere.
my is getting deleted too !!! What the *&^%$# ?
Someone Please post game video after
I am so proud of this kid!!! Hope his ankle does not hurt.
I'm speechless...always hoped he'd get his chance since every level he plays he's written off and today is going so well!
He proved he's an NBA player tonite!
Keith Smart pooped in his pants tonight.
Lin pooped in Keith Smart's pants tonight.
Sorry guys, not sure whats going on with the deleted posts. But our boy is doing it tonight!
its time for you to fess up Jlinfan1.
Anybody have video?!?
here is to history
Lin-sanity at the Garden tonite!!!
THIS.IS.AMAZING.This is what makes Jeremy special. He plays his best in the biggest situation against the best competition.
Come on jeremy!
Holy S--t, 23 pts 7 dimes, 5 boards great defense! and most important he led the offenseRelease Bibby now!!!
The last time I felt like this was watching Michael Chang win his first match at the US Open!
I need to follow my own breathing advice. Lin is DOMINATING. He's outplaying Deron Williams. An undrafted 2nd year 12th man is KILLING one of the NBA's best point guards this game. The Knicks are winning and Lin has filled up the stat sheet as if HE was the All Star. I have been repeatedly criticized for daring to say that Lin has All Star potential. For all I know, Lin could be out of the NBA by next week and he'll never play another minute of pro ball again. But for this night, Lin played like an All Star would have against another All Star. Tonight was Jeremy Lin's breakout game (and the game isn't even over yet). Let's hope he does not get waived next week.
can you say break out!!!
OMG, I CAN'T BELIEVE MY EYES. MY CHINESE NEW YEAR GIFT TODAY. HALALUYAH
Jeremy is on his way to Stardom now ! We can shut this site down ! Let's go home !
Hey Golden State, how is DeAndre Jordan working out for ya?Let's be honest, the Asian population put too much pressure on JLin17 but he's finding his comfort zone now.http://www.dopewar.com
Jeremy! wow God is great! you've done amazing tonight! rooting for you all the way
All the haters just pooped in there pants tonight....I LOVE IT
25 points, 7 assists, 2 stealsGod bless this boy =')
WOOOOOO!! GREATEST JLIN GAME EVER!! JEREMY JEREMY JEREMY!! He just played himself INTO the NBA finally! This proves he's got game!!
I see very good things coming from Jeremy Lin. I'm not saying they've found their starting PG but Jeremy has a good chance, once he learns how to run the offense and have more playing time with the Big 3, he has a very good chance to play starting PG.
Aman's gonna need to upgrade his Youtube account to get what Lin got... More minutes ;)
FINALLY... THE TIME HAS COME. JEREMY HAS DONE IT PERIOD. COMPLETE SHUTOUT.
25 pts, 5 rebs, 7 asts and 2 stls in 35mins and 52secs played!! Most Mins, points and assists in the team!! JLin is da man!! *bow*~~ I AM SO PROUD OF HIM!!
Jeremy Lin is a hidden gem no more.... everyone see his talent now :( Oh well... WAY TO GO Jeremy!! So happy for him!!
My post got removed, and I don't care. Tonight Jeremy Lin played like an All Star against another All Star. Actually, he OUTPLAYED All Star Deron Williams. Lin was the main reason the Knicks won tonight. And it was the first time Lin played major minutes in the NBA!I don't know if the Knicks will keep Lin next week. Heck, I don't even know if he'll play the next game. But for this one night, Lin DOMINATED.
you mean lin shut down deron ;)
"Tonight Jeremy Lin played like an All Star against another All Star."Yup. Such a special night! He can't play this like *all* the time, obviously, but he's earned a contract extension. And if he keeps playing half this well, then he should be the backup PG to Baron.
why can't he play like this all the time ? Steve Nash has been doing it for 16 years.
Uh, Lin HAS been playing like this all along. Lin is at the top of the NBA in several statistical categories on a per minute basis. He hasn't been given much playing time, but he has dominated in those minutes. Today was more minutes, so more domination. Lin scored 12 points and scored the game sealing layup. None of us at jeremylin.net are surprised. Lin has been dominating the ends of games since HIGH SCHOOL. In every league he has played in, Lin has been unbelievably clutch when the game is on the line. By the way, I would not say that Steve Nash has been "playing like this for the last 16 years". When he came into the NBA with the Suns, Nash was incredibly inconsistent as a young player behind Jason Kidd and Kevin Johnson. In Nash's.dirst years in Dallas, fans openly questioned whether he had NBA ability.because of his lack of production. Once Dirk Nowitzki hit his stride, Nash finally became an All Star. It took many years for Steve Nash to become a reliable rotation player.
Nash was very shaky in his first 3-4 NBA years.
comments are going to blow up nowall these people are going to be so surprised but we knew this was coming!!
Guys, it feels like we went from nothing to winning the lottery tonight lol. This only confirms what the Jeremy Lin fanbase knew ALL ALONG.
I honestly didn't think I would ever see what I saw tonight! You make us proud Jeremy!
From NBA.com:link: http://www.nba.com/games/20120204/NJNNYK/gameinfo.htmlLin's career night leads Knicks over Nets, 99-92By BRIAN MAHONEYPosted Feb 04 2012 10:07PMNEW YORK (AP) Jeremy Lin scored a career-high 25 points and the New York Knicks salvaged the finale of a back-to-back-to-back set by beating the New Jersey Nets 99-92 on Saturday night.Lin came off the bench to control a struggling offense, adding seven assists while outplaying Nets All-Star point guard Deron Williams.
We got a point guard !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jlin.......wow thats all i can say D'Antoni gave him a chance and he blew up the court!!! Nice job Lin we believe in you.....
lin is frontpage on espn.com/nba
When I first saw the box score, I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm still in a glaze staring at the stats. He was the MVP of this game. Crazy.
OP with the nastradamus like prediction - "If Jeremy gets backup pg minutes tonight, look for him to have a breakout game."JLin most of us here been rooting for you since 08 brother. Don't let up now. Even if the Giants lose tomorrow this was a good weekend.
Jeremy~! Jeremy~! Jeremy~! Jeremy~! Jeremy~! Jeremy~! Jeremy~! Waited so long for this day and it finally happened. Congrats, Jeremy!
Jeremy Lin = The Barack Obama of the NBA
Wow, what a game tonight! I was just following along on Yahoo sports...after the 3rd quarter, I couldn't wait any longer. I just purchased League Pass! :) I be watching the games live now, hehe! Go JLin...it was even exciting watching the Yahoo updates, "Lin drives to the hoop for a layup!"
are you crazy? u paid? email me if u want a link to free streaming.. email@example.com
Thanks Nemo NM! When one gets excited, he/she will do crazy things...hehe. If I can watch a few more JLin performances like tonight, I'll consider it well spent! :)
Aman2k will have the game vs Nets up soon. For now, he has the Celtics game.http://asianathletes.wordpress.com/
Many of here are NOT surprised by today's outburst. The die hard rabid Lin fans have been clamoring for him to play. That is not because of his.ethnicity, but because of his massive production in limited minutes. The only difference between before and now is that Lin simply received more minutes. I fully expect NBA teams to clamp down on Lin after today. They will play him for the jump shot and seek to trap him when he penetrates. Of course, the Knicks coaches should be.countering by putting Lin into the best spots. The Linsanity will settle down. When it does, Lin will be what we here already know he is: a good solid pg who is a NBA backup at worst and a potentially good starter.
Agreed. I don't support JL just because he's Asian-American and went to Harvard, but because he really truly seems like he can play.Also, Jeremy was smarter dealing with traps and pressure today. He doesn't have Rondo's handles and he's not gonna get reach-in fouls from refs. So what did he do? He passed the ball to a teammate, let them bring it up the floor, and then got it back in the half-court. That's fine. Not ideal, but fine.And as someone has said before, JL should then work on a spin dribble during practice and the offseason.
That was me who suggested the spin dribble. I am not expecting Lin to become the next Earl Monroe by spinning around every defender that crosses his path. Rather, I would like to see Lin be able to drible out of a trap by reversing his direction with a spin dribble. This would particularly true when teams squeeze him on the baseline in order to force him the dribble through a doubleteam. If Lin could escape the baseline and spin away from the defense, teams would not be able to trap him as easily. There is nothing wrong with using a two guard front like today to bring up the.ball. The biggest fan of a two guard front is ex Bulls/Lakers coach Phil Jackson. He wrote that good defensive teams would press and destroy teams that had just one player to dribble the ball upcourt. Championship teams often involve all five players in getting the ball from baseline to baseline.
Watch the game on Yes - Lin still need to work on long range shot and 3 pointer. No one else seem to be able to run pick and roll, that alone should give Jeremy some solid rotation minutes in near future. With Nash Amare was top scoring pick-a-roll player and Knick need to continue trying utilized that with Chandler and Amare. http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/knicks/post/_/id/10796/page/knicksrapidreactions/rapid-reaction-knicks-99-nets-92
I'm not worried about his jumper, though. He's really improved his shooting stroke; he just needs more reps and playing time. Notice how JL made his last two jumpers after bricking his first six. Once you settle down and shoot it confidently, they will start going down. Not saying he'll be Steve Nash out there, but he capable of shooting a half-decent clip from 18-25 feet.
The Knicks can improve Lin's perimeter jumpshooting by guaranteeing his contract this season.
I don't think there's been this many comments after a game with JLin ever. I don't think JLin will start a game, but I think all the media press will finally get the knicks rolling as a real team. They do have the superstars, they just needed a leader and from what I saw in this game, it was Lin who was giving the commands and controlling the field.
He has just proved to everyone in the NBA today that he shold be a stating point gaurd. GO LIN!!!!!
What an amazing game. I drove out to Reno to see him and now he plays for my home town and kills the toughest crowd in basketball. I am in tears!
Any post game video?
Locker room interview with Jeremy Lin here:http://knicksnow.com/videos/420
I wonder what Stephen A is going to say after tonight. One game, yeah, but what a...
Glad I caught the game. Spectacular performance tonight. What was more impressing was just one turnover. That's a sign of a great PG. Hopefully he has a repeat performance Monday night. Go JLin17!
He just needed to be able through mistakes. I think he's earned his chance to let his game speak for itself. You can't coach desire and you can't coach perseverance. He's got both and a tenacity on defense that is infectious. He is the hardest worker out there and maximizing the talent god gve him. He might earn a sart Monday night vs the jazz who are besieged by their own injuries at guard. Why not let Lin loose on a wounded animal?
NBA.com game highlights finally up:http://www.nba.com/video/games/knicks/2012/02/04/0021100345_njn_nyk_recap.nba/index.html
His defense will be what keeps him on the court. The warriors knew that last year (see Monta's comment to Matt steinmetz at the end of last season) and he just needed time to learn the system with the Knicks. Anything he does on offense is a plus - his job is to get the Knicks scorers scoring and if he does that he should play decent rotation minutes. You can see the team feed of his energy when he plays defense. I can't blame dantoni for being cautious since his job is on the line but now he can say 'what the hell' and go with whatever is working and that right now is Lin running his pick n roll transition gun offense
what did monta say?
I do not fault Dantoni for not playing Lin more. Dantoni has been trying to figure out which one of his guards with guaranteed contracts can play pg (answer: none). Plus, Lin was brought in to be a practice punching bag off waivers. Coaches should not automatically hand minutes to waiver wire acquisitions who have been cut by two previous teams in one season and have never played.meaningful NBA minutes. Dantoni gave Lin garbage time, which is more than Lin got in Golden State and Houston. He even gave him rotation minutes against Houston and Boston. Today Dantoni did the gutsy thing by playing an undrafted waiver wire dumpee against an All NBA pg guard, and the undrafted player took the All Star to school. Dantoni is far from perfect, but he fully deserves credit for playing Lin this game.
Post game locker room interview with JLin:http://knicksnow.com/videos/420
I like the way JLin play but hope he doesn't turn into another Tebow and keep referencing God.Realistically, he should first thanks his Parents, especially his Dad who taught him the game, his coaches who helped him along the way, the Mavericks and the Warriors for giving him opps, his teamates such as Chandler, Amare, and Landry, the NY fans who were pushing for him, and then us fan on the JeremyLin.net site.
Thanks for posting. I also watched http://knicksnow.com/videos/419 and liked the comments by Jonah Ballow.
Summary-Gives his teammates credit-Gives God credit-Gives the coaching staff credit-States he needs to work on his game-Might move in with Landry Fields
I came back here just to post again. This time I will attempt to be more analytical. PROGRESSThis game was huge for both the Knicks and Lin. Having your team's support goes leaps and bounds for an unestablished young player. He won't have to look over his shoulder to see if he is being pulled out after making a mistake now. A great example of this was when he took two jumpers in a row during a single Knicks possesion. He caught the ball on the left wing and missed a long jumper. After an offensive rebound by NY, he had another good look from the right side and even though he missed that shot as well, he shot them with confidence. NEEDS WORKNo one here claims Lin is a gunner. He is an average shooter at best and teams will test him until he proves he can knock down 20 footers at a respectable clip. I personally believe this is the reason he was not given a chance at both Golden State and in New York until now as both teams demand that their PG be a good shooter. Lin at times plays a little out of control, both offensively with turnovers as well as defensively with his fouls but he will improve with more experience as these silly plays are rookie mistakes. The telling tale of whether he carves out a career as a serviceable backup or whether he earns a starter's spot will be his (in)ability to calculate the arc of his shots and direct their trajectory into the basket from 20 feet out. TEBOW EFFECTJeremy Lin mentioned he would like to be a pastor once he is done with basketball. When the media picks up on this, we could really see a mini-Tebow mania occur. Whether you are Asian, religious, one of, or neither, it is hard not to root for this underdog. He has been a true professional since day one, always staying humble and always working hard. #Rush Hour 4#Yellow Mamba#Special Delivery

Not Lin only highlights, but game highlights:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtsN9wquLdA
new york has really embraced lin. maybe all this is fate? his best game yet and it resulted in a team win. i would be shocked if he's not the backup pg after this.
Lin is most likely starting on Monday as D'Antoni stated in an interview and in article by Bloomberg. Should be interesting to see if Jeremy can keep the energy alive. “He missed about three or four wide-open shots and we were struggling,” D’Antoni said at a televised postgame news conference. “In his position, without a lot of experience, that could have crumbled most people, but he took it again and he took it again and he got it right. I just thought it showed a lot of mental toughness.”With the Knicks in need of help at point guard as Baron Davis continues to recover from a back injury, D’Antoni said he is leaning toward starting Lin for the Knicks’ home game tomorrow against the Utah Jazz.
