Final stat line for Lin vs. SAC: 10 pts, 5 rebs, 13 assists, 6 TOs. In 26 min for a change.

Knick win their 7th in a row. 100-85... and move to .500 at 15-15. Jeez. Can't believe we were only a game behind them not too long ago.

Lin's turnover penchant is of obvious concern and the one -- one -- area where he is showing a weakness. In seven games this season in which he has played 20 or more minutes, Lin is averaging 4.9 turnovers per game. He's had six or more in four of his five starts.

This is obviously a result of having the ball in his hands for so much of the game. Lin's Usage Percentage -- a rating of how much the offense goes through him when he's on the floor -- has skyrocketed to 31.8 percent this season, which is second-highest on the team behind Anthony (32.7). This would be fifth-highest percentage in the NBA, behind Kobe Bryant (37.6), Russell Westbrook (33.2), LeBron James (32.8) and Melo.

But usage isn't an excuse for turnovers. Still, it's not uncommon for point guards who have the ball in their hands most of the game to have a high turnover rate. In fact, of the top five leaders in Assist Percentage in the NBA, four of them have a turnover percentage (based on 100 possessions) of 17 or higher.

Lin's 48 percent assist percentage would rank second in the NBA behind Steve Nash (58.3), and Nash has a 24.4 percent turnover percentage. Lin's turnover percentage is 18.8.

Rajon Rondo (46.8 assist percentage and a 22.4 turnover percentage), Jose Calderon (46 assist percentage, 17 turnover percentage) and Deron Williams (45 assist percentage, 17.7 turnover percentage) are other examples. Chris Paul (44.7 assist percentage, 11.9 turnover percentage) is the only exception.

That's part of being young and being part of a team, not faking. I guess he could put his head downd shuffle to the bench, but why?

He's just having some fun. Nothing wrong with that. Have you seen him in post game interviews? He's humble and always praises the team no matter the question.

I agree.

And again, from when we started this thread... why is everyone so adamant on hating this player/ story. If he were a Raptor most people here would be losing their minds. They would be including him in trade rumours and mock trade scenario's for guys like Howard and Chris Paul. He's be "Linsanity x100" here.

But instead, we have idiots yapping from day one about how bad he is, about how lame the story is, about hows he's really shitty, but that each game he plays, miraculously something happens each time in which the other team manages to do something that allows Lin to do better than he might do otherwise. Or, he turns it over too much.... or his shoes are ugly, or he shakes hands stupidly (like fuck man, honestly?????)

It's beyond ridiculous really. You don't have to love the guy, or even like him, but watering down how well he's doing with BS about his shortcomings, or how he looks or what he says about who he worships in interviews is childish. its a good story, he's playing well, and last I looked he's 7-0 as a starter and his teammates seem to think he's every bit as good as the commentators and media guys covering his play of late.

Seems like a lot of bush league sour grapes to me.

I'd be way more cool with people just saying "Fuck Lin, fuck the Knicks, hope they all get herpes".

I mean at least thats normal.
