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.
