Default Linsane t.o. thread

9 turnovers against the hornets. What can lin do to lessen the t.o.'s? Considering who the knicks lost to i am disappointed but not going to lay complete blame on lin's shoulders.

Don't try and force feed Amar'e on every possession, at least 4 of those turnovers were attempts to feed Amare.

But ball dominant players will get alot of turnovers.

Nash has like 7 tonite, and the fourth qtr hasn't started.

He needs to stop forcing too much and make easy plays.

You could see that he tried to involve teammates too much in the first quarter. He also tried too many flashy passes trying to put the crowd on their feet instead of just making an easy play.

He goes into the paint sometime and just freezes. That's when he gets double teamed and 99% of the time loses the ball. Stop forcing plays (example. Amare)

After reading into to all the Lin hype it seems that people forget how common it is for a young and brand new starting PG to turn the ball over at high rates. I've seen time after time PG's who excel in the beggining only to be plagued by a high number of turn overs, but overcome that flaw and play at a high level.

One good example that comes to mind is Rajon Rondo. I think Lin will eventually overcome the turn over problem. Right now he just needs to learn from his mistakes...but he's a smart guy...he can do that.

He'll figure it out. I think our success clouded the fact that he is still really learning his teammates. The hectic schedule doesn't provide a lot of practice time. Now that the scouting reports focus on keeping him out of the lane - he simply got confused. It happens. They crowded him and this was going to happen. Glad its happening early that way it won't cost us several playoff games. He's gonna have a few more nights like this. He hasn't read a lot of defenses designed at getting him. Good shooting will take care of some of that. Familiarity, will take care of most. In his position he can't bypass stages of development.

Default Re: Linsane t.o. thread

Lin is just not strong with the ball. He has handle. He's quick. He makes pretty good decisions. He's just not strong with the ball.If you don't already know what I'm talking about,it's hard to explain. Look at the kid Watson from Chicago and the kid Jackson from the Thunder. They dont lack talent, they just aren't strong with the ball. When he gets it the paint and in traffic, he gets bullied into turnovers sometimes. First way to fix that is to hit the weight room. Another way to fix it is to have him practice dribbling lower to the ground and closer to his body. Right now, he dribbles kinda upright and pushed the ball in front of his body. Leaves alot of room for frisky hands.

Surely partly it's chemistry, at least one or TOs against the Hornets were Amare's fault for not reading the pass and either coughing it up or not getting there in time. And in time players will get better at making themselves available when Lin is trapped and he'll get better at knowing where they'll be and finding them.
