Jeremy Lin took only two shots in their 100-91 victory over Jiangsu, which is a bit short of what the Dragons had expected the Beijing star to take. Driven by their desire for the former NBA guard’s advocacy, they have tweaked their pre-game pledge for a good cause.

Posted by Twitter username @kwawa_hsuk302, who is an avid Lin follower, Jiangsu posted on their Weibo page that they are going to make revisions on their previous pledge.


The Dragons, who lost their third game in six outings, will match all shot attempts the former NBA with the Toronto Raptors took in their game and donate it to his charity. Lin went 5-of-12 from the field including 13-of-17 from the free-throw line, thanks to his relentless attacks to the rim.

Before the start of the current CBA season, Lin made a pledge where he’ll give 3,000 yuan for every conversion from downtown. Jiangsu, prior to the game, said that they will also give the same amount for every missed three-point shots that the 6-foot-3 guard from Harvard will take during their clash.

Lin only took two three-pointers the entire game, making only one – and Jiangsu thought that number was soo small to be given to the charity. His lone three-pointer, however, is just enough for the crowd to chant “Thank you, Jeremy Lin” after it swished the hoop knowing that another donation to the charity will be made.


Playing without their three starters, Beijing banked on to Lin, forward Xiaochuan Zhai, and American reinforcement and another ex-NBA center Justin Hamilton to weather the Jiangsu storm and avoid getting their back-to-back losses. Zhai, per ProBallers Stats,  top-scored for the Ducks with 27 points built on five treys, six rebounds, five assists, and three steals while Hamilton churned monster numbers of 25 points, 16 boards, and six dimes for the now 5-1 Beijing.
