As observed, Lin’s pass fell right onto Len’s hands. All the big man had to do was put up a shot fake to shake off his defender.
This is their first season with the Hawks this year. Len, who has started in 17 of 19 games, is averaging 10.4 points per game 5.6 rebounds and 1.0 block. Lin, meanwhile, who comes off the bench, is logging in 11.5 points per game on 51.3 percent shooting, as well as 3.2 assists.
Lin, who played just one game last season after suffering a ruptured patella tendon on opening night, has fully recovered and is getting his rhythm back. Per Rashad Milligan of SB Nation, Lin said:
“I’m getting back to being confident and trusting myself,” Lin said. “When I get out there on the floor, I don’t really think too much. I just play and trust my instincts. Obviously, there’s film work and things that I’m always trying to work on, but when I get out there, I just try to have a ton of fun, and get lost in the game.”
