A guy who drops 38 a few games ago against the Spurs and who had that run that he had last season is more than a capable starter in this league.
Like most players, if you don't allow them to play their natural game and put them in situations to excel within themselves, their value drops.
The kid can play. His big games haven't been flukes.
I honestly don't know what the Rockets do well on offense.
It seems to disorganised, static and unplanned at times.
Houston still manages to score more point then any other team on the road and only behind OKC & SPurs at Home...
Harden missed two games...
1st game Lin played bad in a blowout to Utah.
2nd game Lin played great in a loss to Spurs... btw which Asik role is so underrated in that game he beat Duncan for the 2nd time this year, really kept Rockets in the 1st half.

Imo, if they don't think he gives them a better chance of winning then let him come off the bench. No other starter plays less minutes than their backup and sit the entire 4 quarters, that's just silly. What they're doing now is bull and is messing up a young kid's confidence level as well. Both McHale and Sampson need to be more supportive of Lin, help groom him to become a better player, they are doing the opposite. Very bad coaching imo, even high school coaches don't pull this ****.
Yes Lin is an NBA talent, but you don't rework the structure of a team for one player... Lin needs to and will adjust.
Daquen Cook had a decent game vs. OKC should Houston go out and run 10 plays for Cook and play him 30mpg
If they did sure Cook would avg 15-20ppg but thats not their goal.
Lin stats from last year after Dantoni got fired...
13ppg/5.4ast/4reb/1stl/.4blk/3.7to/.429fg%/.294% from 3
11ppg/6.1ast/4.1reb/1.8stl/.5blk/2.7to/.397%/.310% from 3
its a process

Again Dragic and Lowry had their best years under McHale... and didnt the Knicks sign Felton and iirc Kidd before they declined to match?
