Jeremy Lin, Solid Game, Charlotte Hornets Beat Detroit Pistons, 104 - 84, 12.09.2015

Jeremy Lin with another solid game helped the Hornets beat the Pistons at home, 104 to 84.


Jeremy Lin played about 5 minutes in the first quarter where he stole the ball from Marcus Morris, got an assists from a Marvin Williams 3 point shot, stole the ball from Steve Blake, hit a jumper, grabbed a rebound and finished the quarter with a drive to the basket.

His only real mistake in this quarter was when he left Steve Blake open for a 3 point shot. Steve Blake made the shot because Jeremy Lin was late in defending him. Still, even with this error, Jeremy Lin had a very very solid first quarter.

In the second quarter, Jeremy Lin played a total of 11 minutes where he started his offense with an assists to Jeremy Lamb, a penetration to the basket, a defensive rebound and an assists to Cody Zeller.

Jeremy Lin played longer in this quarter but he was not as productive because he was playing alongside Kemba Walker who took over the PG role. As an SG, Jeremy Lin is tasked to spread out the floor by standing at a corner which kinda limits what he can do on the court. Regardless, it was still a good quarter for Jeremy Lin because he avoided making any kind of mistakes.

Jeremy Lin played in the last 4 minutes of the third quarter where he made 1 of his 2 freethrows, passed to Spencer Hawes who dunked the ball and made his first and only 3 point shot.

Again, Jeremy Lin's only real mistake in this quarter was when Steve Blake made another 3 point shot because Jeremy Lin was again late in defending Steve Blake but, it was still a good third quarter for Jeremy Lin.

Jeremy Lin started the fourth quarter and he started it with a defensive rebound. If my math is correct, he played for about 5 minutes and in those few minutes he split his freethrows and scored with an acrobatic off-balanced awkward shot.

Jeremy Lin made a turnover in this quarter but it was his first and last turnover in the game. He also had his arm pulled twice by Steve Blake and another Piston player while dribbling inside the paint but the referees made no calls.

Overall, Jeremy Lin played a very, very solid game. He didn't make a lot of mistakes and he protected the ball very well in those few minutes where he was the point guard.

At the end of the game Jeremy Lin played a total of 26 minutes and he got himself 13 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and only 1 turnover. He didn't close the game but it wasn't important because the Hornets where already ahead by 20 points down the stretch.
