Jeremy Lin Looks To Leave Injury Woes In The Past

Long-range shooting has slowly become a more prominent part of his arsenal, and he set a career-high in 2017 with an average of 4.3 threes attempted per game. He connected 37.2 percent of the time. When he’s surrounded by D’Angelo Russell or Joe Harris or Spencer Dinwiddie or DeMarre Carroll, the focus shifts to getting them the best shot possible. 

Lin is fantastic at extending the pick-and-roll, taking that extra dribble or two to occupy multiple defenders. That, in turn, leaves someone open, and he can initiate a swift reversal for an uncontested shot. In a system that prioritizes ball movement and gives almost everyone the green light, those opportunities are abundant.

Jeremy Lin, unlike his teammates, will not receive a grade on his performance this season. It’s out of respect because, well, he barely played. Going forward, however, he’s going to be necessary for any success the team has.
