So Jose plays Lin for the drive.
He overplayed him slightly to his left at the end of a game that does not need a 3 to win vs. a guy who had hit all of 5 three pointers in his short career up to that point. Seems like smart coaching and playing to me. Lin is shooting 25% on the season from 3 (after going 2 for 2 last night) has been playing an aggressive attacking game since getting minutes, what would you do as a coach or player? I sure as hell would not ask my guy to grill him and get blown by, I would have him sit back a bit and try to steer him where he may be less comfortable, just what Jose did, given his high turnovers I may have ran a double team at him once the clock got real short, but Jose played him as well as could be expected.
I really get sick and tired of "fans" always knowing better than the players and coaches who get millions to do what they do, if it is that easy, go get yourself a coaching job and do what they do.
