LIN RETURNS . . . Palo Alto High graduate Jeremy Lin's stay in the NBA Development League is over for the time being. After playing just just four games with the Reno Bighorns, Lin returned to the Golden State Warriors in time for Wednesday's 110-103 win over host New Orleans. The Warriors will be at home Friday to host Cleveland. Lin reportedly is being recalled from the Bighorns to replace Acie Law, who has an injured wrist. "I did talk to Jeremy, but he doesn't know how long he'll be up," said Peter Diepenbrock, who coached Lin in high school and now is the head men's basketball coach at Canada College. "He did very well in D-League. (Warriors') General Manager Larry Riley went to watch him in one of those games when he played very well." Lin last week was sent down to Reno, the Warriors' affiliate in the Development League. Since making his debut on Dec. 28 with 10 points, Lin has been solid while starting two of four games. Lin was averaging 18 points, four rebounds and 2.8 assists in those four outings. His best statistical game came Sunday in a 110-103 loss to Idaho, where Lin scored 26 points in 37 minutes with four rebounds, five assists and two steals.
