NBA總冠軍系列賽第3戰,暴龍今(6)天作客甲骨文球場,反客為主一路壓著三巨頭僅剩一哥「咖哩小子」Stephen Curry的勇士打,華裔球星林書豪也在最後51.7秒、暴龍領先13分的情況下,生涯首度在總冠軍賽登場,結束4場冷板凳。

TAIPEI (The China Post) The Raptors headed to the home of the Warriors (Oracle Arena) for game three of the NBA Finals on June 6. Taiwan’s NBA star Jeremy Lin (TOR) entered the game when the Raptors were ahead 13 points with 51.7 seconds remaining in the game. This also marked Jeremy Lin’s first appearance in the game after being benched for four straight games.


The 2019 NBA finals are the first time the Toronto Raptors have ever made the NBA finals and is also Jeremy Lin’s first time reaching the finals. Yet, in addition to the past four games where Jeremy did not play, he has only played 7 games in the playoffs before his short appearance on June 6. To make matters worse, in each of the games, his minutes in those games did not exceed 30 minutes. This caused many fans to be upset, with some even ranting and yelling at coach Nick Nurse (TOR).

今天總冠軍賽第3戰,林書豪終於在最後第四節51.7秒,獲得上場機會,換下主控Kyle Lowry,不過暴龍領先多達13分,兩隊也都換下先發主力,所以都沒有繼續進攻,林書豪因此沒有得分或出手數據。

In game three, Jeremy Lin was finally substituted into the game and appeared on the court replacing star Kyle Lowry (TOR) when the Raptors were leading by thirteen with 51.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter. At this time, both teams had already substituted out their best players, and because the game had already been sealed with the 13 point lead, the players waited out the clock, which meant that Jeremy Lin did not have a single point or assist in the game.


In the past, Chinese basketball players, including Mengke Bateer, who played for the San Antonio Spurs, and Sun Yue, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers, have won championships. Despite this, neither appeared in any championship games.
