Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets face the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. The game will be broadcast live locally at 8:30 p.m. ET, and you can also watch a live TV stream online for free here.

Houston improved to 18-14 on the season with a 104-92 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday. Guard James Harden led the team with 31 points, 16 of which came in the paint.  Center Omer Asik was two rebounds shy of a double-double, while Patrick Patterson scored 13 points in the fourth quarter to help put the game away.

Jeremy Lin scored just nine points in 42 minutes in that contest, though he did add seven assists and six rebounds. Overall, he has improved his play in recent weeks, particularly his shooting percentage. As we previously reported, Lin also had a gorgeous no-look pass to Greg Smith in Wednesday's contest.

Thanks in part to Lin's improved shooting, the Rockets have been one of the top offensive teams in the NBA this season. The Rockets have scored 105.8 points per game this season, most in the league. The squad is getting it done offensively in multiple ways. According to NBA.com, Houston is second in the league in both three-pointers per game and points in the paint per game.

Jeremy Lin and the Rockets are particularly good at scoring quickly. NBA.com notes that Houston averaged 18.7 points per game on fast breaks, best in the NBA. The Bucks, meanwhile, allow 15.6 fast-break points per contest, second-most in the league.

Those Bucks sit at 16-14 on the season after a seven-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night. Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 31 points, while John Henson added 20 off the bench. Milwaukee allowed 69 points in the first half but came back to cut the deficit to five points with 20 seconds left. However, San Antonio hit a pair of free throws eight seconds later to seal the victory.

Houston has won 10 of its past 13 games against the Milwaukee Bucks. However, the Bucks took the most recent contest, a 105-99 defeat last January. Jennings scored 20 points in that contest, while Ersan Ilyasova notched a career-high 19 rebounds. Houston's two leading scorers in that contest, Kevin Martin and Luis Scola, are no longer with the team, but forward Chandler Parsons did add 16 points and seven reoubnds.

Samuel Dalembert, meanwhile, notched a triple double in that contest as a member of the Rockets, but the center was traded the Bucks in the offseason.
