With Toney Douglas getting dealt to the Kings last night, the Rockets need 24-year old Patrick Beverly to step up behind Jeremy Lin at the point. Beverly has played in 15 games (0 starts) overall this year for the Rockets and he is averaging 13.7 minutes, 4.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals per game. He is only shooting 37.5% from the floor, 32.3% from three point range and 73.7% from the floor so far this year, and that just won’t get the job done. Beverly has played in 6 games (0 starts) so far in February and he is averaging 17.7 minutes, 5.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game. The Rockets need Beverly to keep playing well behind Lin.
