Gotta Credit the New Orleans and Trevor Ariza. The Hornets are in prime form right now...three in a row!
Let's face it...Hornets had a breakout game last night...every time Knicks made a run, they kept responding without letting the Knicks build any momentum...even the lowly Nets had a game like that today against the mighty Bulls.
That said, there are areas where Lin can improve. Thing I like about this kid, he's taken the world by storm and yet he's down to earth and humble. Heck...after carrying the team to a wire to wire win, he refuses to take any credit and praises his team mates for bailing him out. If he doesn't let the fame get into his head, and stays humble, he'll learn how to adapt and he'll learn fast.
When Carmelo is back, the opposition defenses will have to focus more on him and Lin will get even more room to operate...turnovers will consequently come down...the guy's a winner and plays much better under pressure...he was missing free throws and committing turnovers early on...but when it was crunch time he made all his free throws and didn't commit any more turnovers...now I'm interested to see how he responds after they have a bad patch and how Carmelo adapts his game.
