Brooklyn Nets: Jeremy Lin

With Lin on the court, the Nets offensive rating is a 109.3 and their defensive rating is 107.4, for a respectable plus 1.8. But without their floor leader, their ratings change to 103.6 and 109.0 for a terrible minus-5.7.

In short, Lin’s presence is worth 7.2 points every 100 possessions. That’s a game-changer, and his absence since Nov. 2 has been just that for the Nets.
