LIN BACK IN RENO . . . Palo Alto High graduate Jeremy Lin is back in the NBA Development League and flourishing once again, after languishing on the Golden State Warriors' bench. Since returning to the Reno Bighorns, the Warriors' affiliate, Lin has taken over the team's scoring lead with 19.1 points a game in eight appearances. In his past three games with Reno, Lin has scored 60 points. In his last outing on Sunday in a 109-102 win over Texas, Lin had 17 points with four rebounds and three assists. He's currently averaging 4.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game with Reno. Lin was sent by the Warriors to Reno on Jan. 10, his second assignment with the Bighorns. The first came on Dec. 28 and lasted four games before Golden State recalled him. Lin played sparingly on his return and was reassigned to the D League. He scored 21 points in a 111-102 win over Maine in his first game back on Jan. 12, then tallied 22 points in a 117-93 win over Sioux Falls on Jan. 13 and added 21 against Texas last Saturday in a 108-85 victory by Reno. In his four games since his return, Lin has scored 81 points.
