Nets hold on against the Pistons, BUT lose Lin for a couple of weeks as the Nets host the Hornets at the Barclays Center 7:30 PM ET

Not spending too much energy making the game threads, Lin is out :)
Tale of two halves, with Lin you have the nets explode for 71 points.
without Lin, Nets struggled to hold on scoring only 38. Brook Lopez had a monster of a game scoring 34 points including 4 3 pointers. reserve Sean Kilpatrick helped keep the team afloat with a double-double 24 points, 10 rebounds.

Jeremy Lin was having a nice game, pulled a hamstring with 3:10 left in the 1st half.
scoring 10 points in 16 minutes, on 4-6 shooting, 2-2from the line with 4 Assists

Hornets struggled the 1st half, but roared back in the 2nd half to be the 76ers.

This would have been a nice matchup, Lin against a former team against kemba. but alas injuries. plus the offense didn't look as smooth with him off the floor. Atkinson will be relying on whitehead, and kilpatrick to pick up the pg slack. can they maintain a winning attitude, or will the hornets swarm and sting the nets back down to earth?

Probable Starters
Nets
PG -- Isaiah Whitehead, Sean Kilpatrick, or Randy Foye
SG -- Bojan Bogdanovic
SF -- Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
PF -- Trevor Booker
C -- Brook Lopez

Hornets
PG -- Kemba Walker
SG -- Nicolas Batum
SF -- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
PF -- Marvin Williams
C -- Cody Zeller

Notable Injuries
NETs
Jeremy Lin -- Out -- 2 Weeks -- Strained Left Hamstring
Caris Levert -- Out -- recovering from foot surgery
Grevious Vazquez -- Out - Sore ankle
Randy Foye -- Probable -- Strained Right Hamstring.

Jeremy Lin is SUCH A CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL BALLER with TRUE PASSION about basketball !!

Even though he can't play in this game,
he just sat by the courtside with the bench players, raved support and cheered for his team, tabulated box scores/stats for the team, communicated and sort of transferred his knowledge/knowhow to his team mate Isaiah Whitehead (who is actually competing for his job) during half time, as well as did not forget to socialize with his old team mates/buddies of Charlotte Hornets at the end of the game !!!

Quote:
Charlotte coach Steve Clifford knows about doing without Lin. The Hornets would have loved to have kept the guard, but the chance to run his own team — and get $36 million to do it — was too much for a driven competitor like Lin to turn down.

“It means a lot to anybody like him, because the reason why he’s good is he puts pride in how he plays,’’ Clifford said. “You want everybody to want to be like that. That’s one of his real strengths, is he’s motivated. Look, obviously coaching him we’ve had many conversations. But he has a strong belief in himself, and he wants to prove to people that he can be an upper echelon player.

“That’s how you should think. And the thing I appreciated was that as much as he wanted to start last year, he knew coming in what the situation was, what the role was. Not once [did he gripe].”If you go back and look, you could argue that our [three] best regular-season wins, he was our best player. … He’s a proven player. But you want guys who want [to start]. If you say I’m happy being the eighth guy, you’d better be 34, at the end. He’s not there.”

I was at the game and was bummed Lin was injured and didn't play, especially b/c it was the first ever live NBA game for my friend and his son - wanted the kid to see a successful Asian player in the NBA but what can you do.

Atmosphere was kinda meh. Large contingent of Asians though, especially fobs - probably from Taiwan, which makes sense.
