Watch: Jeremy Lin drops 21 points in 17 minutes against a helpless Pistons

Published Add your comment

Jeremy Lin is fondly remembered for bringing us the gift of Linsanity in late 2011 during his time with the New York Knicks.

However, after a revitalising stint with the Charlotte Hornets, the talented point guard is looking to rebuild himself in Brooklyn.

The Nets have very low expectations heading into the new season and the chance of them winning north of 20 games is slim.

However, therein lies an opportunity for Lin to lead this team and make the most of his time on the court.

Lin signed a three-year deal with the Nets for $38.3 million in the summer and in their preseason game against the Detroit Pistons last night, he showed promising signs of why he is worth the investment.

Lin led the Nets to an unexpected 94-101 win over Stan Van Gundy's Pistons and he dropped a crazy 21 points in 17 minutes of play to lead all scorers.

Andre Drummond weighed in with an incredible 17 points and 21 rebounds for Detroit, but Lin went an extremely efficient 5-of-8 from deep to lay the Pistons down.

His apparently new shooting stroke looked extremely smooth and, as you can see by the highlights, his technique was getting nothing but net.

If Lin can re-discover the form he previously exuded in the Big Apple, the Nets might just be able to raise expectations next season a little bit.
