What does that tell you about what the coaching staff feels? If they were confident in his defense, he'd be playing.
I'm saying wow because you're using marginal "evidence" to justify your statement.
That tells you that the coaching staff doesn't feel Lin is up to scratch in crunch time. Airball the other day probably influenced them. However, it's quite plain that this caused the terrible offensive sequence by the Rockets at the end. Just awful.
Toney Douglas provides more pressure on the offensive player, but he's not the better defender definitively. In today's game Lillard scored more on Douglas.
