Jeremy Lin (13 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists) and Nicolas Batum ( 24 points, 8 assists) had big nights for the Charlotte Hornets to beat the visiting Nets.
“We made an effort to help the bigs on the glass and the ball was just bouncing my way,” Lin said. “We did a good job all the way through of just blocking out. When you see guards with a lot of rebounds, it’s not because we’re these amazing rebounders. It’s the bigs doing their job of blocking out so we can chase loose balls down.”
