During his trip to Taiwan, Nets guard Jeremy Lin said he expects the team to make the playoffs this season.
The Nets finished last season at 20-62 and have not made the postseason since the 2014-15 season.
"We're making the playoffs. I don't care what anybody else tells me," Lin said in an interview posted to YouTube.
Lin, who battled injuries last season, averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists in just 36 games last year. He said in the interview that he's excited to have newly acquired D'Angelo Russell join him in the backcourt this year.
"He's good," Lin said. "Got a chance to meet him out in Vegas for Summer League. ... I can't wait to play with him. We're going to do some serious damage next year. "
