ESPN: @JamesHarden, @Jlin7 lead fourth quarter comeback for @HoustonRockets

Jeremy LinFor the second game in the row, Jeremy Lin and James Harden lead a fourth quarter charge for the Houston Rockets in a 107 to 98 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, reports ESPN.

Harden scored 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Lin hit all ten of his points in the final period.

With Patrick Beverley expected to be out with a hand injury another three to five weeks, Lin has returned to the starting line up.

Last night was Jeremy Lin keychain night in Houston, with the first 5,000 fans getting a keychain of Lin that seemed to be inspired by Legos.

I found a few keychains from Lin’s days with the New York Knicks on eBay, but so far nothing from last night’s giveaway.

Lin’s much improved play this season is beginning to get noticed.

He is shooting 48 percent from the field and 39 percent from beyond the three point line.

Hie is averaging nearly 15 points in just 30 minutes a game.

Lin is second on the team in assists at 4.2 a game, just behind Harden’s 5.5 who plays on average 9 minutes a game more.

A recent article in Sportige said that Lin’s unselfish play is starting to rub off on Harden who is sharing the ball more.

An article from Houston Culture Map entitled Jeremy Lin exerts his will: Rockets coach Kevin McHale forced to treat guard like a star

asserts that Lin makes the Rockets a better team.

This is what the Rockets look like with a real starting point guard. They’re fast, explosive and precise.

Lin remains a fan favorite both nationally and internationally. He is fourth in All Star balloting at the guard position with 358,725 votes, behind an injured Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and Stephen Curry.
