Jeremy Lin - Better than Wat
Jeremy scored a career high 13 points on 4 for 9 shooting in 18 minutes of play. It is very interesting that he scored five of his points on free throws (out of 5 taken - the 2nd most taken by a Warriors player) which is usually a sign of aggressive and attacking play. Also interesting is that though the Warriors lost 117-89, they were +6 when Jeremy was on the court, which was the highest differential of any Warrior (only Charlie Bell finished in the positive at +3). Though he might not have been playing vs the Laker's A team, he contributed positively on the court, including 3 boards, 2 assists and 2 steals.
Jeremy's career high previously was 3, so this was a breakout night for him. Also significant last night was that the first full Asian American in the NBA, Wataru Misaka, scored 7 points total in 3 games in 1947-1948. Jeremy has now surpassed him as the most successful Asian American in NBA history with 20 total points.
