SB Nation decided to grade the point guards performance after his first full season ever as a starter in the NBA.
Lin average 13.4 points, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals & 2.9 turnovers per game. He showed steady improvement throughout the season, cutting down on his turnovers, making better decisions on the court and improving his on court vision. Grade A-
But his lack of aggression and his inability at times to finish drives sometimes cost the Rockets. Grade C-
When he returned from his injury in the playoffs, he seemed more tentative which only augmented his weaknesses. Grade D
