Charlotte Hornets’ point guard Jeremy Lin has so far been the epitome of rebirth this NBA season. Lin first broke into stardom in 2012 after he led the struggling New York Knicks to a winning direction and since then earned the moniker “Linsanity.” Unfortunately, his partnership with the East coast team did not last for very long as he suddenly found himself bouncing from one team to another until the he settled in his new role with the Hornets.
While Lin has been playing the sixth man pretty well all season long, he was caught in one of his rare off nights against the Dallas Maverick. Lin’s Hornets bowed down to the Mavericks with a final tally card of 107-96, cutting off their seven-game winning streak.
Without a field goal in 0 out of 3 shooting and just 1 out of 4 from the charity line, the California native only played the court for 19 minutes making this performance his season’s lowest. It did not help the Hornets that Mavericks Chandler Parsons put up an all around game with 24 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 steals, while team veteran Dirk Nowitzki contributed a double double with 23 points and 11 rebounds.
Lin and Hornets fans do not have anything to worry though as the team will have a chance to bounce back when they return in action against the Orlando Magic on the 17th.
Meanwhile, the Harvard alum, who is known to be a huge advocate of Christianity, is reportedly asking his fellow Christians to pray for “global Christian revival.” In an email written by Lin and reported by Charisma News, the 27-year-old calls people to put God back at the center of their lives.
“Please pray for global Christian revival. Specific areas that I feel God has put on my heart are Asian-Americans in the U.S. who are lukewarm in their faith, the billions in China who don’t know Christ and Taiwan/Hong Kong. I obviously care about many other places, but these are very near and dear to my heart,” Lin wrote.
