Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets face the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday 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. But please, click on that link at your own risk.

The Rockets snapped a three-game losing streak with an eight-point loss to the Denver Nuggets last Wednesday. Jeremy Lin scored a team-high 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting, while fellow starters Chandler Parsons and James Harden scored 21 points each. However, the Rockets could not overcome 22 turnovers, including six in a nearly-seven minute stretch. Denver outscored Houston 24-3 during that run and took a 101-88 lead that it would never relinquish.

"I think our turnovers caught up to us," Lin told the Houston Chronicle after the game. "Our defensive deficiencies caught up to us."

Jeremy Lin's 22-point performance on Wednesday was his seventh 20-plus-point effort of the 2012-2013 season. His high so far this season was a 38-point outburst against the San Antonio Spurs back on December 10.

Jeremy Lin has also scored at least 10 points in 28 games this season, third-most on the team behind Harden and Parsons. He has also led the squad in assists in 28 of Houston's 28 games this season.

But the entire Rockets squad has been potent on the offensive side of the ball this season. Houston is currently second in the NBA in points per game, according to NBA.com, averaging 105 points per contest. The Rockets have been particularly strong against Eastern Conference foes this season, averaging 113.5 points per game in their last eight contests against the East, all Houston wins.

One of those wins came against the Charlotte Bobcats earlier this season. The Rockets defeated Charlotte, 100-94, back on January 21. Harden led Houston in that contest with 29 points, 12 of which came in the fourth quarter. However, 19 of those points came at the free throw line, as the guard shot just 25 percent from the field. Houston forward Marcus Morris added 21 points off the bench and saw extended playing time.

Point guard Kemba Walker led Charlotte in that contest with 35 points on 12-of-21 shooting. Forward Hakim Warrick added 10 points and was the only other Bobcats starter in double figures.

Charlotte sits at 11-34 on the season and has lost five of its last six games. Its most recent defeat was a blowout loss to the league-leading San Antonio Spurs. The Bobcats shot just 41 percent from the field in that contest and turned the ball over 23 times.

Houston has won four straight games in the series, including seven in a row in Houston. The Rockets have won each of those home contests by an average of nearly 17 points per game.
