Jeremy Lin is Flourishing as a Leader in Houston



“I think we’re getting more mature as a team and as individuals. We’re understanding not to panic and to get back to what we do best.”

--Jeremy Lin, Houston Rockets, who has led his team to a 31-26 record in the NBA.

He is averaging 12.8 points and 6.2 assists per game this season. The Rockets are noticing what a good job Lin is doing, fitting into what the team is trying to do.  This includes fast-breaks, pick-and-rolls, and spreading the floor for open jump shots.  They are considered the fastest team in the league.

“He’s done a lot better job keeping us in our offense. He’s keeping us in our sets and doing all those little things that Coach was emphasizing.”

--Chandler Parsons, Houston Rockets forward.
