Jeremy Lin And The Houston Rockets Vs. New Orleans Hornets: Watch Live TV Stream Online For Free; Preview

Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets face the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night. The game will be broadcast live locally at 8 p.m. ET, and you can also watch a live TV stream online for free here.

The Rockets have won five straight games after a victory over the wounded Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night. Guard James Harden led the team with 31 points, with 12 of his 19 shots in in the paint, according to ESPN. He was able to dominate near the basket with Lakers' center Dwight Howard out with an injury. Lin meanwhile, scored 19 points for his second straight game in double figures.

Harden in particular has been a scoring machine during the Rockets' five-game winning streak. According to NBA.com, he has tied a franchise record with 25 points in 13 straight games. In fact, he has averaged 29.6 points per contest over the last five games.

"He's instant offense," Jeremy Lin said of his teammate. "He just comes in, he doesn't even need to warm up. He'll hit his first 3. It's ridiculous."

One of those games came a week ago against these Hornets. Harden scored 31 points in that contest, though Jeremy Lin had just nine points on 3-of-10 shooting. The Rockets also got contributions from forward Patrick Patterson, who had a double-double off the bench, and center Omer Asik, who had 21 points and eight rebounds.

Since that loss, however, the Hornets have won two straight games, including a 95-88 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. Eric Gordon led the squad with 24 points after missing much of the beginning of the season with a knee injury.

In fact, the Hornets finally appear to be getting healthy at the right time. Rookie forward Anthony Davis also missed the early part of the year with injuries but was a key force during Monday's win with 17 points and nine rebounds.

The Rockets have won three of the last four over the Hornets, including the aforementioned contest last week. New Orleans' lone victory over Houston last year came on April 19, when Gordon was just two assists shy of a double-double. Forward Al-Farouq Aminu added 17 points for the Hornets in a game that damaged Houston's playoff hopes.
