Jeremy Lin and James Harden will only get better the more time they have together. It wasn’t long ago when the experts were proclaiming the pairing a bust. The thinking went that they could possibly play well together because both required the ball. The Bleacher Report points out things turned around for the pair when Harden starting setting screens for Lin. This not only opened things up for Lin, but Harden as well as he found himself matched up with shorter guards in the pick and roll.
The trajectory for this pairing is only going up. Patience is a virtue when it comes to the Houston Rockets.
