With Tuesday’s game against Toronto the halfway point of the Nets’ schedule, it’s a logical time to take stock of coach Kenny Atkinson’s first season.

Brooklyn Nets: If only Jeremy Lin could stay healthy

Every team needs a reliable point guard—someone you can give the ball to and be comfortable with them running the offense. Jeremy Lin isn’t an all-star point guard, but Lin’s impact on the Brooklyn Nets offense goes underappreciated.
