playing next Harden, on a per-36-minute basis, Lin has averaged 10.7 points, 6.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds with a ghastly 46.5 true shooting percentage (TS%) to go along with a 12.1 player efficiency rating...according to the NBA.com's StatsCube tool.
But in 106 minutes Lin played when Harden hits the bench: 19.7 points, 7.5 assists, 5.1 rebounds with an above-average 55.4 TS% and a 17.7 PER.
With that in mind...Lin's per-36 minute stat line in New York last season was 19.6 points, 8.3 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 55.2 TS%, and a 19.9 PER.
so Lin's stats without Harden this year is identical to Lin's stats in NYC last year. what do yall think about this?
