Jeremy Lin is off to a slow start for the Houston Rockets

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Need to step up by alleyoop on Tuesday 27 November 2012 at 5:49 pm

The Rockets gave 24-year old point guard Jeremy Lin a lot of money over the summer, hoping that he would play at the level he did with the Knicks last year. That hasn’t been the case so far this year. Lin has played in 13 games (all starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 33.6 minutes, 10.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.8 steals per game. He is only shooting 34.8% from the floor and 24.3% from three point range so far this year, and that’s just not going to get it done. Lin isn’t going to lose P.T. any time soon, but the Rockets need him to start playing like the player they thought they were getting when they signed him.

Omer Asik has been giving the Houston Rockets just what they expected he would

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by alleyoop on Tuesday 20 November 2012 at 3:13 pm

26-year old center Omer Asik has been rock solid for the Rockets in the middle. He has played in 11 games (all starts) for the Rockets so far this year and he is averaging 32.3 minutes, 10.0 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.2 blocked shots per game. But, Asik needs to improve his shooting from both the floor (44.9%) and the free throw line (62.5%) before he can hit peak performance. The Rockets expect that Asik will continue to be a force in the middle of the court for them for the near future.
