I don't see things going well for Lin in the near future. He has no confidence in his shot, as seen by the numerous times he passes up on wide-open shots. The coaching staff has no confidence in him, as seen by his reduction in PT and benching in OT. And Harden has no confidence in him as seen by the numerous times he chooses not to pass to an open Lin after he missed that wide-open 3 at the end of the Heat game.

I caught myself checking some stats today... Jeremy Lin is tied at 23rd with 8.7 assists per 48min. This is not league-wide either, but only among PG&#39;s. On top of that, his Assist/Turnover ratio is pretty awful. He is 35th among PG&#39;s with a ratio of 2.08 assists/turnover. This places him among guys like Damian Lillard, Jrue Holliday, and Jerryd Bayless. Holliday is getting a lot of attention for his overall game, but if you ask me, the PG should be the one guy on the team with an extreme hatred of turnovers. Technically we are seeing a man in the same situation as Damian Lillard, with Lin only being a sophomore on paper. This is bound to improve over the rest of the season, but surely indicated how young he and the team are.
