ATLANTA — There are two minutes left in the third quarter. Jeremy Lin is propped against the scorer’s table, waiting for his chance to enter the game against the Atlanta Hawks. He’s only played seven minutes so far in a game in which the Charlotte Hornets produced the NBA’s lowest-scoring quarter this season.


When he gets into the game, Lin plays with a sense of urgency — and not just because his team is down 13 points. It’s become a calling card.


Lin’s role in Charlotte quickly evolved this season. The 27-year-old signed on as starter Kemba Walker’s primary backup as a free agent in July, but coach Steve Clifford has leaned on a two-point guard lineup often, and while the acquisition of Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee has given the franchise another solid wing option, Lin remains a significant part of the Hornets’ success. His 11.9 points and 3.2 assists per game give Charlotte’s bench some explosiveness.


Lin’s numbers haved dipped since his fast start to the season, particularly his shooting percentages over the past two months, but, as he proved in Atlanta, the Harvard product can be a difference-maker for Clifford’s group. In 21 minutes of playing time on Sunday, he showed efficiency scoring 15 points and shooting 57.1 percent from the field.


The Hornets still lost 87-76, locking them in a four-way tie for the No. 6 seed at 11.5 games back in the Eastern Conference, but it was one Lin’s best February outings. Hornets head coach Steve Clifford said the team can move forward if they bring a “readiness to play” every game.


Lin brought that readiness on Sunday, and he’ll need it in the team’s final 24 games.


This is a fairly new scene for Lin. The extreme highs of his run with the New York Knicks still dominate Lin-related news, but his teams’ playoff runs have been rare and short-lived. He’s still searching for his first playoff series win after two appearances with the Houston Rockets in 2013 and 2014. Now, following a mediocre season in Los Angeles, where the injury-plagued Lakers won just 21 games, the 6-foot-3 guard and his new team are back in the conversation.


Despite a difficult 3-2 road trip for the squad, the Hornets are on the right track.


Various injuries to the likes of wings Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Nic Batum and Jeremy Lamb, as well as the recent trade of third-string point guard Brian Roberts to Miami, have pushed Lin into key moments throughout the campaign. Lin has stepped up on defense since the team lost Kidd-Gilchrist for the season, and that’s likely an attribute he won’t abandon. If Lin can continue to improve his shooting numbers, there are multiple ways Clifford can use his versatility down the stretch.

MKG,巴頓和小羊接踵而來的各種傷痛,以及第三控衛Brian Roberts最近被交易到熱火,都將林推到球賽中的關鍵時刻。因為MKG的缺席,因此林加強了防守,而這也注定了林在每場比賽都絕不會缺席,如果林可以繼續改進他的投籃數據,克利福德教練就可以用林的多功能發展各種戰術。

In any case, as the Hornets have added pieces for their playoff push, Lin remains a vital piece to the team’s puzzle.

  4. 感謝大大翻譯  幫大大貼上此篇網址:


    很開心有人可以寫出J Lin有改變比賽的能力,不過他也提到克總會用J Lin主要是因為"防守",希望J Lin能克服命中率𣎴佳的問題,趕快把手感找回來,不要上場只是幫隊友找到"最佳狀態",也要顧好自己的數據~雖然目前看來出手機會不多…J Lin加油!

  5. 完全同意攻擊範圍是關鍵。有三再加上現在的切入和傳導,幾乎就無敵了。

  6. 翻譯得很好啊
