Whatever criticism Jeremy Lin is taking for his playoff performance, he is pushing all that aside and focusing on what he needs to do to get better.
As Lin dealt with injuries, Patrick Beverley shined as the starting point guard, having two performances where he scored 16 points. 16 points was Lin’s total for the postseason. While there are no signs that Lin is headed to the bench, a buzz has been created regarding the starting position. And Lin was asked about it on Monday.
“I don’t really know what people are thinking,” Lin said on Monday. “I don’t really care either. For me, I know what I have to do to get better. I know the extent of what I had to go through in the playoffs and what the experience was like. So I would say it was rough. I didn’t play well, obviously. I wasn’t happy, but I learned and it’s not the first time in my life or my career where I haven’t done what I wanted to do. As long as I learn what I need to learn, I think I’ll be okay.”
