Jeremy Lin Catches Fire From 3, Misses Wide-Open Layup At The Rim In Brooklyn Debut
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.”
