By Staff Reporter, Posted: 03/22/13 03:34PM EDT

Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. The game will be broadcast live locally at 8 p.m., ET, and if you cannot get to a television, you can also watch a live stream online for free here. But please, click on that link at your own risk.

Before you watch the live stream, here is a preview of Friday's game.

Houston is coming off a seven-point victory over the Utah Jazz. The Rockets got out to a 19-point lead and held on for a victory that secured their spot in seventh place in the Western Conference. Guard James Harden led the team with 29 points, nearly 60 percent of which came on free throws, while Jeremy Lin added 24 points and six assists.

Jeremy Lin, of course, should be in an extra good mood on Friday following his alma mater Harvard's upset victory over New Mexico in the NCAA Basketball Tournament. It was the Crimson Tide's first tournament victory in school history.

As the Houston Chronicle notes, Lin tweeted his excitement early Friday morning.

"YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!" he tweeted. "HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you.... #threepointgoggeles #bracketbusters."

The tweet accompanied a photo of Jeremy Lin doing the aforementioned three-point goggles pose.

The entire Rockets squad should feel better after the Utah win, especially since it came just days after blowout loss to Golden State. As NBA.com reports, Houston has played well as of late, especially at the Toyota Center, where the Rockets have won nine of their last 11 home games.

Most of this success has been a result of Houston's offense. Per the Rockets' game notes, Houston already set a new record for made three-pointers in a season after Jeremy Lin nailed a shot in the first quarter of the team's win over Minnesota last week. The Rockets have also scored at least 115 points 20 times this season, boasting a 17-3 record in those contests.

Theoretically, the Cavaliers should pose little challenge for the Rockets. Cleveland is one of the worst teams in the league with a 22-46 record. However, this same squad gave the defending champion Miami Heat a scare earlier this week.

The Cavaliers led Miami by 27 points in the third quarter before the Heat rallied for the three-point win. The victory extended Miami's consecutive win streak to 24 games. Guard Wayne Ellington led Cleveland in that contest with 20 points, while center Tyler Zeller had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

This near-victory was even more impressive considering Cleveland is currently sporting a depleted lineup. Per the Associated Press, rookie guard Dion Waiters will likely miss at least a few more games following a knee injury, while fellow guard Kyrie Irving could miss the rest of the season with a sprained shoulder. Meanwhile, center Anderson Varejao has been out since mid-December after a quadriceps ailment led to a blood clot.

Houston already beat the Cavaliers once earlier this season, 112-104. Harden led the Rockets in that contest with 29 points, while Jeremy Lin added 20 points and five assists. Irving had a team-high 30 points for the Cavaliers.
