Joseph Lin bests brother Jeremy in recent game

Jeremy Lin’s little brother Joseph got the best of his big brother in a recent P.LEAGUE+ game.

On Sunday, Joseph and the New Taipei Kings faced Jeremy and the Kaohsiung 17LIVE Steelers. According to Focus Taiwan, the Steelers had an eight-game winning streak heading into the game.

The Kings snapped that winning streak defeating the Steelers 104-100. The team was actually trailing the Steelers by 14 points in the third quarter but bounced back after scoring 24 points in just 7 minutes, Focus Taiwan reports.

Jeremy had another triple-double with 37 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists. Joseph outscored his older brother with 22 points, eight rebounds and 8 assists.

“I think our team is so strong, whoever takes to the court can make contributions to the team,” said Joseph Lin, according to Focus Taiwan.

Joseph and the Kings also faced the Steelers in early March. According to South China Morning Post, Joseph had 10 points to Jeremy’s 23 but got the last laugh as his team crushed the Steelers 101-88.

Jeremy thinks his little brother is underrated, saying in an interview that he did not think many people recognized his greatness.

“He’s been doing the things right in every single aspect. His teammates told him to shoot more, but he’s such a selfless player, willing to sacrifice himself for all of his teammates … and when [I] play against him, you can tell that he’s making a huge difference to the game when he’s on the court,” Jeremy said, according to the Taipei Times.
