News: Lin tallied 16 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, four assists, and one steal in a 106-94 preseason win over the Clippers on Sunday.
Impact: Lin looked like one of the best players on the floor Sunday, as he posted a game-high plus-23 rating in his 28 minutes of action. The sixth-year guard's role is a bit up in the air this season with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's (shoulder) replacement in the lineup yet to be determined, but Kidd-Gilchrist's long-term absence should at least open up more minutes for Lin and the Hornets' other bench options.
