Jeremy Lin Wins Again - Loses Coach
Jeremy Lin finally wins again against the Trailblazers. Jeremy Lin had 6 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, and 6 turnovers. An ugly game for Jeremy as he got off his feet often and got caught.
The Blazers deserve some credit for handing the Knicks this win. The were without energy as the game started and the Knicks pulled away. And kept pulling away to an 42 point win.
Jeremy Lin didn't play his usual 30+ minutes. Baron played very well and the offensive was clicking more with Baron.
Since there is no more Linsanity, I think Jeremy Lin will be moved to the bench eventually and end the season as the first or second guy off the bench.
Earlier in the day, Jeremy Lin's former coach Mike D’Antoni resigned from his post as the Head Coach of the New York Knicks. Having only 1 playoff apparence in 3 full years was not a success for him. Finding Jeremy Lin at the end of the bench will be in lasting legacy for me. Unless D’Antoni ever finds his way to the Lakers. I always though of D’Antoni as a humble and honest guy even while he was at Phoenix and crushed my Lakers for 2 years.
