NEW YORK -- Jeremy Lin has officially returned to the New York area. Chris Neil Senators Jersey Authentic . He captivated the city in his Linsanity era when he averaged 24 points, nine assists and four rebounds for the Knicks during a 10-game stretch in February 2012.Lin comes to Brooklyn as the starting point guard for the Nets. Hes reuniting with coach Kenny Atkinson, the former Knicks assistant coach who helped him develop.The way I was looking at free agency is kind of when you invest in a start up company, Lin said. You dont necessarily look at the product right then and there at that moment. That is a big part of it, but youre kind of betting on the founder a lot of times. Youre betting on what that person is capable of doing because sometimes as you go through the process the final product is going to change a lot and thats very common in start ups. I feel like thats kind of like how I saw this. Im betting on certain people. Im betting on Kenny (Atkinson). Im betting on Sean (Marks). Im betting on myself. Im betting on Brook Lopez.Lin wants to prove he can be a full-time starting point guard as he was during Linsanity.Thats a huge thing for me because in free agency I kind of said I want to see how great I can become, Lin said. Ive played a lot of different roles, Ive sacrificed for a lot of teams Ive been on in the past. Ive taken smaller roles to try to help the team succeed. Now I have that chance to take a much bigger role and be a much bigger part.Lin is joined by fellow free agent addition, Anthony Bennett. The former 2013 No. 1 overall pick is joining his fourth team in four seasons.I think because hes been torn down a little bit and lost his confidence, I think in his case weve got to build him up again, Atkinson said. Really narrow down what his role is going to be and then build his confidence back up.Other Brooklyn offseason additions include Greivis Vasquez, Luis Scola, Trevor Booker, Randy Foye, Caris LeVert, Justin Hamilton and Joe Harris.Despite the new additions, general manager Sean Marks cautioned more moves could still happen.I dont know that were ever done, Marks said. Well obviously listen and see what else is out there. Well continue to scout and scour and see what other teams are doing, other leagues around the world are doing, how the Olympics are going. Mike Hoffman Senators Jersey Authentic . Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers. Cody Ceci Senators Jersey Authentic . - Connor McDavid scored 53 seconds into overtime as the Erie Otters came from behind to defeat the visiting Guelph Storm 4-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. http:///...enators-jersey-c-14/ . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. MINNEAPOLIS -- Andrew Wiggins career-best, 47-point outburst on Sunday for the Minnesota Timberwolves flashed the immense potential and the continuing growth in the third-year swingman.With Wiggins leading the charge, Minnesota has been among leagues best offensive teams. The Timberwolves are ninth in the league in scoring, averaging 107.9 points per game.The Charlotte Hornets have their own breakout star emerging in point guard Kemba Walker. Walker is a sixth-year pro whos had plenty of big moments in the NBA, but hes taken his scoring to another level by averaging a career-best 25.3 points per game.Wiggins, who begins the week as the NBAs ninth-best scorer at 26.3, and Walker (12th in the league in scoring) will lead their teams against each other Tuesday at Minnesota.With Wiggins setting career bests in points in two of the past four games, the Timberwolves (3-6) have won two of their past three games. Wiggins has asserted himself more on the offensive end this season and picked up the scoring slack in Saturdays 125-99 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers.Hes smart. Hes driven, Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said. I think sometimes mistakenly people take him as laid back. Hes competitive. I think hes just scratching the surface. I think he can do a lot more.Wiggins shot 14 of 21 in Sundays win, hit two 3-pointers and went to the line 22 times, knocking down 17 free throws. One of Wiggins weaknesses in the past had been his 3-point shooting, but he leads the league hitting 54.8 percent of his 3-pointers.Im finding myself; finding the things Im good at, the things I need to work at, Wiggins said. The games just kind of slowed down for me a little bit. Im able to read a lot of different defenses and how people are playing me, the defensive set.Walker isnt exactly new to his role as Charlottes go-to man. He averaged more than 20 points per game last season but hes expanded his impact this year. Walker is also averaging 5.4 assists and 1.6 steals per game, while hitting a career-best 47 percent of his 3s.The Hornets started the season 6-1 but have lost two in a row to the favorites in the Eastern Conference in Toronto annd Cleveland. Filip Chlapik Senators Jersey. Walker scored a season-high 40 points in a loss to Toronto on Thursday before going extending his streak to eight games with at least 20 points with 21 in Saturdays loss to the Cavaliers.Walker was so frustrated by the loss on Saturday that he sat in front of his locker in his uniform shorts for more than 20 minutes.We just let the game get away from us, he said. They made some great plays and just found guys when they needed to. They were just making big plays down the stretch.Charlotte forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist returned to the lineup after missing a game with a strained back to notch 11 points and 10 rebounds while defending LeBron James. Kidd-Gilchrist could see much of Wiggins on the defensive end on Tuesday, but Minnesotas injury situation bears watching for matchups.Wiggins big game on Saturday came without starting shooting guard and third-leading scorer Zach LaVine, who was held out with a sore right knee. Thibodeau wasnt sure about the status of LaVine or backup swingman Shabazz Muhammad, who also missed the game with a sore right knee. With Brandon Rush also dealing with a sprained right big toe, the Timberwolves depth is being tested.The 6-foot-8 Wiggins moved to shooting guard against the Lakers with 6-10 Nemanja Bjelica getting his first start and playing small forward. Kidd-Gilchrist stands 6-7 while starting shooting guard Nicolas Batum is 6-8.Bjelica responded well to the unexpected assignment, scoring a career-high 24 with five 3s.The only thing, here everything is possible and you have to be ready every night, Bjelica said. I think I needed this game, especially for myself, because I had, last summer, many issues. First my injury, then I miss the Olympic Games, then I put lots of work. Thats it. I just played the best game so far that Im here.Charlotte will still be without guard Jeremy Lamb, but the hope is he could return by Friday against Atlanta. Center Roy Hibbert has soreness in his right knee and is expected to have his minutes limited.
