    I know Harden is pretty much our Defacto point guard. He handles the ball the most, but does anyone know know the last time our point guards got 0 assists?

    I would think the Matt Maloney Era,but I am not sure.

    Lin had an assist for Harden's 4 pt play that was credited to Casspi.

    Harden's 4 pt play was assisted by Lin, and it goes to Cassipi. That's an obvious miss.

    I saw Lin make an entry pass to Dwight before he went hot in the first half.

    Dwight just could not finish the post play. There went the only assist.

    Lin should have had at least a few assists... guys just could not finish the easy shots they were given. Also I think the scorers messed up a couple times as mentioned above.

    Lin should have at least two less TO's and tow more assists each game if Asik could catch

    Watching the first quarter of the Toronto game when the starting lineup was on the court. What strikes me is we almost have two separate offensive flows. (1) James ISO, pass to Bev for 3pt. (2) Parsons pass to Dwight, Dwight sometimes pass it back to Parsons. Good individual effort from Parsons, James and Dwight. However, only occasional ball transfers between the two systems are observed. Asik is almost forgotten during offense.

    James and Parsons shared the PG duty in terms of assists.

    That is the reason why Lin can not start. He does not fit in either offensive flows. Instead, Lin is likely to create the 3rd offensive flow of Lin+Asik. This will weaken James considerably.

    What counts as an assist sure seems nebulous to me. I could have sworn I saw Lin make a pass to Harden for a spot up three that should have been an assist. I found the moment on Synergy. At 36 sec left in the 3rd Asik misses a FT, Casspi gets the rebound, passes back to Lin who takes a dribble, picks it up and passes to Harden who is coming back from getting into defensive position during the FTs and Harden immediately pulls up for a three from the top of the key, makes it, and gets fouled. I do not know why that's not an assist.

    Lin made several plays actually, but the ball was bounced once before being shot/slam. Such as the fast break pass to TJones, who bounced once before slamming and once pass to Asik who buttered fingered it for it to bounce, but caught it and slammed home. Of course, the obvious mis-assist credit to Omri also.

    So yes, he did make plays and contributed to the game's offense outside of his points.

    Near the end of the 3rd, Jeremy passes to Harden who drills a 3...Casspi gets the assist.
    Scorekeeper fail.

    Um - odd question in the thread title?

    Either: we only have 1 starting PG, in which case he can't combine with anyone for 0 assists.

    Or: we have 2 starting PGs, in which case they combine, but Harden would be the 2nd (taking the 2 premise) - in which case they didn't combine for 0 assists.

    Our PG Harden got 10 AST last night due to the great performance of our 6th man SG Lin
