Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly on Jeremy Lin’s Brooklyn debut against the Pistons on Thursday.
The good (real good) is he scored a game-high 21 points on 7 of 11 shooting, including 5 of 8 from 3, in just 17 minutes to help lead the Nets to a 101-94 win.
The bad is his only miss that wasn’t a 3-point attempt was a wide-open layup right at the rim.
“The important thing is for me not to get carried away,” Lin said after his debut. “Last year, I had a great preseason, and it counted for nothing. When we started playing, I struggled coming out of the gate. I’m not going to get caught up in anything other than I felt like I played confident tonight, and that’s something I can carry over.”
