Race to the Bottom as the Nets visit the 76ers at the Center 6 PM ET on YES

Lin played ok after missing a game due to a stiff back. Looks like staff is still imposing a minutes restriction on him

as the 76ers are starting to show cracks in the process. Noel seems to be unhappy with the limited minutes he's been receiving.

probable starters

Nets
PG -- Whitehead
SG -- Kilpatrick
SF -- Bogdanovic
PF -- Booker
C -- Lopez


Sixers
PG -- Sergio Rodriguez
SG -- Gerald Henderson
SF -- Robert Covington
PF -- Joel Embiid
C -- Jahill Okafor.

I hope to God Nets isn't going to pull the McHale on Lin by trying to sell him on how great it is to be a leader on the 2nd unit. :evil: :mrgreen:

Nets lose again... but Lin is doing his part. he was clutch in the last 2 minutes. 2 3-pointers and 2 steals.

Nets record is now 7-19. Yet, Lin's record in the +/- ratio is 4-4. Nets would be a playoff team if Lin plays all minutes.

Yep Lin just wasn't enough to win tonight, only to keep it close.
Don't know how much Harris could have done with the ball even if he got that steal cleanly.

Personally think the loss was due to Head Coach Atkinson TOO RIGID on Jeremy's minute limitation, and SLOW in making appropriate on-the-fly adjustments/substitutions in 4Q when Brooklyn Nets struggled in offense and let the Philadelphia 76ers to have a 11~ 0 run.

In this case, it's not up to the coach. He's listening to the medical staff regarding Lin's minutes. Once the medical staff allows Lin to havce more minutes, I'm sure Coach Atkinson will give him more minutes. The Coach has said he would like Lin to start regularly, but he's doing what's best for Lin and listening to the medical people.

think he will get at most 25 minutes tomorrow, and may skip 1 of the 2 games for the warriors and cavs.

if no setbacks after that, might be back to normal 30 minutes.
