Ling Comes Alive This Season
The 34-year old guard Ling Diyao has been a regular starter this season, unlike the previous one, in which he usually came off the bench. He has also the career best free throw percentage of almost 92 percent and the highest scoring (18.7 ppg) among the lateset three seasons. He also ranks the fifth for point/48 mins in the league, proving his efficiency on the court. He has made the same number of field goals, 3 more threes and 13 more free throws so far in only 12 games, as compared with the previous 21-game season. All of the statistics show that he is still an elite scorer despite of his age.
