Jeremy Lin had his playoff lesson plan rudely delivered by the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday, but the starting point guard is confident he’ll be ready for game two on Wednesday, reports the Time Colonist.
Coach Kevin McHale summed it up best.
“It was his first playoff game. I think he just had to go through that and experience it,” McHale said. “Jeremy’s had a lot of very, very good bounce-back games where he might have had a bad game or bad couple of games and then he bounced back because he’s a tough kid. I’m really not worried about Jeremy.”
Lin scored just four points–ten points below his season average–in a 120-91 game 1 playoff loss to the Thunder.
“I literally thought every single one of my shots were in. I actually believed that,” Lin said. “I’m being completely honest with you — I thought every single one was in. They were all kind of back rim.”
