This is the type of line that many including myself were expecting from JLin early on. However, as I even stated myself that JLin would take a least a month from the middle of pre-season to get close to 100% physically, it was not fair or realistic. This is not even mentioning the change in role with Harden coming in right before the start of the season.
Also, another big factor I failed to mention is that with JLin struggling early in pre-season, it was hard for the players and coaches to have full faith in his game. Now, as he is getting that explosiveness back, and as he's starting to relax, lower his arc, and hit shots, you can see him gaining trust with not just the coaches, but players as well. Harden is swinging it to him, did you see this earlier in the season? No. Late game situations, and Harden is giving it JLin and saying you take it. You can see they're getting it to JLin on the outlet more often. Earlier, it was a lot of Parsons and Harden bringing it up. Now, it's primarily JLin.
Ever since the Knicks game he has looked great to me in just his overall game. He is controlling tempo, taking care of the ball, making solid and spectacular passes, playing strong on ball defense, wrecking havoc with his help D. How many times have you seen Jeremy come over to help and either deflect the ball for someone else to get a steal or cause the turnover or take the charge? These things don't show up in the PER, but they help your team win. JLin is helping his team win, just like at Palo Alto, just like at Harvard, just like in New York.
For those of you who were worried or stopped following Jeremy when things were not rosy, welcome back. Fans are fickle, the bandwagon got lighter after his first 13 games. However, I bet it'll start getting crowded again. Don't get me wrong, he'll still have some struggles as any young point guard will, from time to time. Then you'll see the same cast of characters come back to this site to rip him and us. He also still needs to get to the line more. He was getting there about 7 times per36min last season. If he can get that up to about 4, he'll be almost completely back.
