Jeremy Lin Says He Has Been Terrible This Season

by December 17, 2012

Tonight, Jeremy Lin will make his first return to New York as a member of an opposing team. There have been almost no signs of last season’s “Linsanity”. Jeremy doesn’t shy away from the fact that he has struggled. Per the NY Post: “Lin’s rip job on himself occurred after yesterday’s Rockets loss in Toronto in which Lin scored just seven points with two assists while Raptors point guard Jose Calderon went off for 18 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds. Asked to assess his season, Lin said: ‘Terrible. I think I’m not doing close to what I’m capable of doing and it’s a matter of figuring out how to get myself to play more like myself within the system with the change of scenery. I’ll be my harshest critic but I’ll go ahead and say it: I’m doing terrible.’ The undrafted Harvard point guard is averaging just 10.8 points, 6.0 assists and shooting 39.5 percent. […] Lin is anxious to get this Garden game in the rearview mirror, though his Rockets had great success in the first meeting in Houston — a 131-103 blowout. Chandler Parsons (career-high 31 points) and James Harden (33) erupted in that contest and Lin was steady as a rock (13 points, seven rebounds, three assists). ‘Definitely, I’m definitely ready to get it over with just because I think in some sense there will be some closure,’ Lin said. ‘This will probably be the first return back to MSG and there will never be another first return. So we’re going to go out there and play and have some fun and enjoy it and move on.’”
