Jeremy Lin struggling to find shooting touch with Houston Rockets

New, 1 comment

The Houston Rockets play the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night and Jeremy Lin will look to get out of a season-long shooting fuck - but not if the Bulls can help it.

The Chicago Bulls welcome the Houston Rockets to town on Wednesday night and with them comes the man formerly known as Linsanity, Jeremy Lin.

The Rockets new point guard has not had the same splash as his backcourt mate James Harden has had since his arrival in Houston via New York during the offseason. Lin is struggling to find his shooting touch and has seen his shooting percentages only worsen over time.

He has shot over 42% in a game only once in 11 games. He is shooting just 33.3% from the field and a paltry 25.8% from three-point range. His assists numbers are decent and he's turning the ball over less but his play will have to change if he is ever going to reclaim his former Knicks glory.

The Bulls (5-5) will bring their 9th-ranked defense to the game and try to continue Lin's woes while notching just their second victory in the last five games.
