[Introduction] Jeremy Lin made only 2 of 9 shots and scored only 6 points in the whole game. When he was on the court, the Rockets had a net loss of 28 points.
The offensive end is not strong, and Jeremy Lin has not contributed much on the defensive end. He has defended against Reggie Jackson and Lamb, but they have not succeeded.
Thunder bloodbath rocket
On December 30, , the Rockets challenged the Thunder in the second back-to-back away game, and finally lost 86-117 to the Thunder.
The Rockets fell into a slump throughout the game. Jeremy Lin made 2 of 9 shots and 2 of 4 free throws in the first 24 minutes. He scored 6 points and 3 rebounds.
Since Jeremy Lin came back, he has never been as amazing as the beginning of the season. Almost every game is relatively inefficient, and he can only save it in the last quarter every time.
In the games against the Grizzlies and Pelicans, if they hadn’t scored 14 points and 10 points in the last quarter, the team would not only lose, but also become Mr. Zero.
Jeremy Lin also realized that he had to be efficient, otherwise he would never win the main position. He couldn’t just test the surprise attack in the fourth quarter, he had to improve the offensive efficiency in the first three quarters.
But in the game against the Thunder, he was still slow to warm up, and his offense was still scattered.
For Jeremy Lin, the Thunder was like a nemesis. It was not easy to break through the perimeter defense, but first they faced the interception of the strong man Perkins, and then there was a “slap” watching them.
Under such circumstances, Jeremy Lin still didn’t find many chances to score in the first three quarters, and only found a gap in an offensive-defensive transition in the second quarter.
I can’t get in from the inside, so I have no choice but to wait for the opportunity outside.
The problem is, in addition to the inside, the Thunder’s outside line is also very solid, their defense is very flexible, and almost everyone can save the three-point line.
Jeremy Lin can only shoot against the defender from the outside, and the final effect is mediocre, and he even made three non-stick shots.
In addition to Jeremy Lin, Harden and Howard were also restricted, and the Rockets soon fell behind by a large score. This also resulted in no chance for Jeremy Lin to rewrite the game in the final quarter.
Perhaps due to the impact of the season of 5 consecutive days and 4 games, Jeremy Lin’s defense has dropped significantly, causing both Reggie and Lamb to be overwhelmed, and he has completely lost the demeanor of defending Parker and Conley in the previous few times.
