I just think Shumpert is a better defender than Fields (who's not?) and will shoot better now he won't have to create his own shots.
Shump had a couple of 5 steal games, really padded my Fantasy team, i had to drop him though.. his shot selcection needs to improve, but coming off a pick and roll offense , it might give him better looks.
Wonder what the chem gonna be like when melo and omare come back ,lins numbers gonna be down for sure
That said, before even before Amare and 'Melo left the team they were already deferring to Lin. Amare started just finding open space in the paint. Melo actually got an asisst with his 6 points before he started grabbing his groin vs. the Jazz.
"We just have to run our system that another kid ran pretty well a few years back."
Going forward, we really need to find ways to get Lin more rest. He just looks so gassed sometimes. He even admits that playing 30+ is more tiring than he expected. Until Baron Davis returns, that basically means crushing the opposition so Lin could get out of the game early.
